The U9 and U11 continued their series this past week with the U9s travelling to Pairc Eamon in Farranfore to meet Firies while the U11s were in Rathbeg and played Rathmore. A nice introduction for the young players to game scenarios without the added onus of it being competitive. The skills on show and the smiling faces are all the ingredients of an enjoyable evening.
In what can only be described as a humdinger of a game the U15 Boys went down to a very fluent Kenmare Shamrocks team in the County League Division 1 semi final played in Fr. Breen Park. It was a see-saw battle in which the home side took control early but credit where it’s due the boys in green and white kept plugging away and actually led by two points midway through the second half. But the Shamrocks got their noses in front by the full time whistle to run out 8-10 to 7-10winners. There was huge honour in defeat and to be ranked amongst the top four clubs in the county is something to be proud of but also a target to maintain and improve on in years to come.
