U14s experience Croke Park


U14s experience Croke Park

A great St Patrick’s weekend, with the U14s, along with their mentors, visiting the hallowed turf of Croke Park.

Last Saturday, March 16th the U14 team, mentors and helpers travelled to Dublin to Croke Park to watch Limerick take on Dublin in the National Hurling League. The day was made all the sweeter when Limerick were the victorious team, winning 1-21 to 1-15.

Dublin then took on Tyrone in the National Football League. This was a very successful day out and it was a fantastic experience visiting Croke Park for such a big day.

A quick pit stop on the way home and all were returned safely to Galbally and Knocklong late that night. A sincere word of thanks must go to all who organised the day, who supported the U14s fundraising efforts to take them to Dublin and especially to all those who travelled on the day or helped out in any way. Many thanks to you all.
