I attach the Rules governing Féile Peil 2015 and the fixture details for Saturday May 16th / Sunday May 17th. Managers, as a courtesy, should make contact with the venue coordinator during the week in the lead up to Saturday May 16th.
The current crop of U14 hurlers have being going very well this year. Division 2 has been incredibly hard fought for past few years with virtually every team in it capable of beating each other on any given day. At the moment however we are currently level on points at the top (albeit it in 2nd place by virtue of scoring difference) having won our last 4 matches on the bounce following an opening day defeat.
As always your support is really appreciated . The Mini All Irelands have always been a great success and hopefully this year will be the dame. To help make it as easy as possible we have been pushing to get as many children registered as possible. We have a lot done but there will always be the last minute registrations. Please find below an update from Saturdays meeting and more importantly help needed.. please pass this communication onto your fellow coaches.
MIchael Donnellon presented a new AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) to Ciaran Meehan last evening in memory of his wife Jean. This is a very generous gift from the Donnellon family and, while we hope not to be using it too often it is great to now have two of these very useful devices, one at Church Road and the second now at Broomfield. Thanks to Michael and your family for this very nice donaion.
MHL2 Erins Isle 2 - 8 St Sylvesters 4 - 8 The minor hurlers travelled to Erins Isle last night to face an unbeaten Isles team riding high at the top of the division . After a rocky start in which our boys conceded two quick goals we started to get into the game a bit more as time progressed . We started to win a lot of possession around the half back line with Niall McCann starting to dominate at right half back and began launching some great deliveries into the danger area. Almost ten minutes into the first half Ciaran Murphy won a hard won free on the forty yard line . Up stepped Daniel Murphy and duly pointed to get Syls off the mark.
AFL9 A very impressive display giving the high riding 4ths their fifth win on the trot in Broomfield on Wednesday. Stephen Donnelly gave a master class in free taking off the ground, one in particular from the right side off the outside of his boot raisin a great cheer. Ciann Walnutt raised another mighty cheer when he solo'ed up the middle, took it on the return and hit a brilliant strike to the net off the right post. Sean Halligan, not to be outdone, nailed a free from outside the 55, a huge effort that came down with snow on it.
