The young under 8s footballers of Tir Conaill Harps returned to Glasgow unbeaten after an action packed weekend of coaching and football in Connacht. They were hosted by the Shannon Gaels club in Roscommon who organised a fantastic five team Go Games tournament in Croghan, which was played inÓgreat spirit with all the participants receiving plenty of encouragement. Prior to the tournament Peter Carney was on hand to host a coaching session with local coaches and the children from the five clubs.
At a days notice the Sean O Heslins club in Ballinamore organised a game for us when a tournament we were to take part in was cancelled due to a bereavement. We really appreciate the club doing this for us as we dont get games inÓglasgow. We hope that the club will come back on a return trip to Scotland some time in the future.
If any club is interested in bringing underage teams on a trip to Scotland contact me on any of the numbers below.
