Father Tierney hosts young hurlers

Despite the heavy rain on Sunday morning we hosted an all county under 8 blitz. Five teams took part in the blitz two from Saint Eunan's, two teams from Aodh Ruadh and a team from Letterkenny Gaels. All teams got four games and our youngest teams put in another great day's hurling winning the majority of their games. The improvement in this team many of whom only began hurling last March is a credit to their management team of Dennis Daly and Pauric Keenaghan. After the morning's hurling it was up to Aras Aoidh Ruaidh where the young hurlers' mothers added to their famed reputation for catering for all by putting on a great spread of food which was enjoyed by all. Many thanks to all who helped organising this blitz. Thanks to all the ladies who looked after the catering and thanks to the young referees: Colm Kelly, Eddie Lynch, Ciaran Rami and Conor Kennedy who did a great job refereeing the game.
