A huge congratulations to the Luke O’Toole’s under-12 hurling team who won the under-12 Hurling Player Pathway A final on Friday last. It was a fantastic team performance and it is well deserved. The Coaches of Seán O’Shea, Majella O’Shea and Donal Rice have worked hard with this great bunch of players and helped get them over the line against a very good St Pat’s side.
Adam Lifely and Callum Keenaghan had the honour of lifting the trophy as joint captains on the night. The team won on a score of 2-7 to 1-6 with the scores coming from J Lambert 0-4, A Lifely 1-1, C Keenaghan 1-0, B Kealy 0-1, M O’Shea 0-1, but it was the fantastic defence that was the foundation stone to this win with P Carroll, P Byrne, D Rice, C Duffy and B Kealy playing out of their skins.
Team: P Carroll, D Rice, P Byrne, C Duffy, S Byrne, B Kealy, C Wilson, M O’Shea, C Keenaghan, B Tallon, A Lifely, G Doyle, L Cronin, J Lambert M Keogh, T Healy, C Sheridan, J O’Reilly, P Toomey, D Duffy. Well done to all.
The club would like so send huge congratulations to our star full forward James Lambert too on his all-Ireland success in the recent all-Ireland Fleadh.
