Easter Races with Junior Infants

Camogie Blitzes

Our last day out was our second u11 team who went to Cashel on Wednesday 10th April. That day we played Ayle and won, drew with Boherlahan and finally in our third match we lost to Donaskeigh. Alas neither u11 team advance this year.

We entered two u11 teams in the Cumann na mBunscol competition this year. Our first outing was to Moyle Rovers on Monday 8th April where we faced Fethard in our first match and we won easily enough. Following this we met Powerstown again winning without too much difficulty. Our final game was against Ardfinnan. Feeling confident and thinking another County semi-final was within our grasp we were taken on the hop and conceded a few early scores. At half time we managed to regroup and put up a great fight and narrowed the gap, however, it wasn’t enough and Ardfinnan were the victors on the day and proceed to the County semi-final.

Our u13 team went to Clerihan on 1st April for a blitz. We played 3 matches and won all games with relative ease. This sees us securing a place in a County semi-final. We are due to meet Borrisoleigh in Ballycahill on Wednesday 8th May. We wish the girls the best of luck in their upcoming game.
