U8 Hurling Blitz – 9/9


Short journey to Ballinhassig for Hurling blitz on Saturday morning.Again, we had good numbers – 10 players in total and all got plenty playing time. As we near the end of the 2017 Blitz season, Rebel Og has encouraged clubs to introduce “Air Hurling” to the games. This has been very beneficial to us and all of our players have improved this aspect of their game over the past few blitzes. Thank you to Stephen Keane for stepping in to referee all of the games!


Shamrocks played Ballinhassig, Ballygarvan and Valley Rovers and had scores been kept, we would have won all comfortably. However, our mission is not winning but ensuring all of the lads enjoy their morning and that in time all will improve going through the grades. Parents, grandparents and siblings have been a great help during the season and a big thank you to all. Thanks also to Colm Crowley, GDA, for organising the blitz which yet again ran without a hitch. We have 4/5 blitzes to go and I would ask all players to make themselves available to complete a hugely successful season.


Panel – James Keane, Patrick Keane, Calum O’Neill, Shane O’Flynn,Donal Herlihy, David Herlihy, Calum Fitzgerald, Ryan Doolan, Seamus O’Mahony & Ollie O’Brien.
