Any one interested in coaching hurling at club or school level, are very welcome to come along no matter what level of experience or skill they already have.


Under 10 club blitz
The final round of under 10 club blitz took place last weekend inÓglorious sunshine. At all but two of our venues everything went according to plan but to Leitrim Gaels and Glencar Manorhamilton we would like to apologise for the mix up on the morning. The fact that some clubs were not aware that the blitz were on shows a breakdown in communications that we must address before next season. On a positive note, well done and thanks to all club mentors and players as our blitz this year have been a massive success.

Under 14 School of excellence
Members of this squad were in action last weekend in Sligo where they performed very well. Their will be no session for the lads this weekend.

Under 15 School of excellence
No session for the next week or two due to the under 16 club championship, but keep a look out in these notes for details of the next session.

Fr. Manning shield final
The under 16 squad played Offaly in the Fr. Manning shield final in Longford Slashers GAA grounds on Wednesday evening last, but after a very entertaining and sporting contest ending up losing by six points.

This concludes the on field activity for this group of players and we would like to express our thanks to their parents for all their help over the past three years, to squad mentors Terry Mc Manus, Eugene Mc Grath and P.J.Glancy and to all players who have taken part at some stage over the past three years. We look forward to seeing you at County Minor, U-21 and Senior level in the future.
