Our under 8’s were in action last weekend in their final round of the Ulster GAA Blitz. There was some brilliant performaces on the day with the team down a few regular they were still putting in strong display across the board.This young group of boys and girls has grown and developed their skills each week and are a credit to the club and community. The team this week included, Eve Duffy, Nicole Fisher, Tammie Kelly, Aoife Murphy, Aislinn Murphy, Opeyemi Osabiya,
Chloe Kelly, Jack Hillard, Cillian Hoey, Jack Hillard, Patrick Murphy and Ryan Martin.
In a massive boost for the club last weekend also saw our under 16 combination side where we are joined with Knockbridge PLAY corduff of Monaghan in a challenge game. Pearse Óg men on the team included every present Aidan O Brien, Micky McCourt and Fionnan McGurk with the returning Lee Reid and Oisin Marrow also playing a big part in the match. Any other former member who want to get back involved at this age group are more than welcome. Training and match schedule to be confirmed.
We had 4 members of our club represent Louth last weekend as they produced another excellent performance to beat Longford in the 4th round of the NHL and keep their promotion hopes alive. Shane Callan, Gerard Smyth, Mike Lyons and Andy McCrave all playing their part. Mike had an extraordinary outing scoring an own goal, getting booked, conceeding two penalties and getting 2 Longford players sent off for tackling him. Needless to say Mike is no longer doing the tackling drills for underage just in case.
Finally, the club will be putting in an order for new training jerseys and quarter zips on the 11th March. Go to our social media challenges for all the information on coatings and design. Also for the first time we will have a training jersey with pink in it for all the budding camógs at underage (and also Juniors being trying to get us to do this years, to match some of his socks selections).
