U10 Boys 2017    Our under 10 boys enjoyed a very busy year in 2017. We started indoor training back in February and only finished playing challenge games in mid-October. During the year we took part in 3 Town Board Blitzes.

We competed against Sneem/Derrynane & Tarbert in the John Mitchels Easter Blitz and we were also part of Mitchel’s Blitz in September.

We had many very competitive & enjoyable challenge games during the year against teams from Abbeyfeale, Annascaul, Lispole, Churchill, Firies, Ballyheigue, John Mitchels, Keel and Kerins O’Rahillys.

So there were lots of opportunities for everyone to get game-time. We were delighted to get a couple of new players during the season & we look forward to seeing them and all the regulars again next year.

We were very lucky to have such dedicated coaches as J.J. Canty, Bernard Daly, Ger Reidy & Helen Cooper who gave so much of their time to the lads. A big thank you to Bernie Canty who spent so much time during the year texting parents regarding matches etc. Thanks too to the parents who helped out during the year. Your help is very much appreciated.
