Hurl Smart Week a success for Camogie Club
Hurl Smart Week began on Bank holiday Monday with our U12s, who received training in various drills and competed in soloing relays, ball hopping competition etc… Some amazing scores were achieved (We think it may have been to some dubious counting!). The U14s were out the next evening and on Friday where they also practiced a number of drills, skills and took part in a wall-ball session. The Senior girls also participated and had training sessions on Thursday and Saturday.
Our Juveniles – U6s, U8s and U10s – received coaching in various different skills from our Senior players on the Thursday evening. Our Camogie Fun Day took place on Saturday and all the girls from U6 to U14 participated in a number of fun drills and games, with our Senior players looking after the older age groups. The day was a great success. We are now entered into a draw to play in Croke Park in August. Lets hope we get lucky!
Feile Skills: Eimear Fitzpatrick, having won the Laois Feile Skills competition, represented the County in the All-Ireland competition which took place in Abbottstown last Saturday where she preformed very well. Well done Eimear.
Under 8s: Congrats to our U8 team who played Ballacolla on Thursday evening and played excellent camogie. A great turn out with 20 girls each playing an important part in their overall success. Well done to the girls. Next week, they will take on Abbeyleix.
