Action Packed Weekend for U12s Hurlers
19 September 2009
Last weekend was a busy weekend for the U12s. After months of planning and fundraising last Friday the U12s set off for Cushendall. On the Friday evening the children were fortunate to be given a coaching session by some of the local hurlers and then a match at the end to perfect their skills.
On the Saturday we got to see some of the local U10s play in a blitz which was a very impressive sight. We then headed on for some culture including the Giant’s Causeway and the Carrick a Rede rope bridge. This was a great experience for the children, although it might be fair to say that some of the adults were slightly afraid crossing the rope bridge!!! In the evening we had a barbecue, all meat courtesy of Kearney butchers-this was greatly appreciated by all.
On the Sunday there was a challenge match against the local team. This was the first proper match our U12s had ever played and it was a great performance. After this it was on to a local derby Hurling match –the Antrim semi final with Ruarai Og, Cushendall v Lochgiel. We were able to see how high tensions were when Ciaran thought he was going to be late for the match…. It was a great match to watch and luckily for us the home team won since Ciaran was travelling back with us!! We would like to welcome Cushendall to Glasgow hopefully within the next year.
