U8 Update

“Training continued on Saturday in Clontarf pitches with pre-match tactics being part of the training. This paid off as the two under 8 Scoil teams played some great hurling in Gormanston College on Sunday morning in the comfort of the indoor venue. All players played a part in ensuring dominance of our under 8 teams in both matches. Mallick, Ryan and Conall all stayed in mid position and kept the ball predominantly in the Scoil side. Simon and Senan also played in defence with vigour and focus. Hugh played a great goal which impressed his peers too. Back to training on Monday in Larkin College this week.”

It is super to see our under 8 team taking part in the indoor hurling in Gormanstown on Sunday mornings. It is a fantastic initiative, and no doubt the players are improving their skills immensely. Also, the comfort of indoors is enjoyable for both players and spectators alike!

Attached is a picture from the Under 8’s in Gormanstown and a picture from the Junior park run in St. Anne’s, which was enjoyed by a great Scoil contingent. Well done to all!

  • Niamh Crowe wishes to extend her appreciation for all of the members of Scoil Uí Chonaill that have sent wishes to the family for the late Fred Crowe. Niamh cannot thank everyone individually, but wants everyone to know that it was hugely appreciated to see members of the Scoil Executive and all club members who paid their respects. Thank you.

  • The main goalmouths on the Scoil pitch are closed at the moment due to ongoing maintenance. Please refrain from using the main pitch during the winter months, if possible.

  • The annual ‘Mentors Night’ has been scheduled for the 16th of February in the club (again, subject to change). There will be a big push for this nearer the time for anyone in the club to come down and enjoy an evening in the club, but until then, save the date!
