Sunday saw our U-10 hurlers in action in a regional Blitz in the DKIT. In total we played 4 matches and what our boys lacked in size they more than made up in skill and spirit. Some of the ground hurling on show would not look out of place on a big day in Croke Park. We defeated Naomh Moninne 4-0, beat Middleton 2-0, lost to Cuchulainns 3-1 and drew with Keady in our final match 3-3. Well done to all involved.
Finally our Annual Table Quiz takes place on Friday Feb 3rd in Cluskeys Little Ash. A table of four is €40. Everybody welcome.
