As our first full season comes to an end, all the under 8 mentors would like to thank all our players and parents for all their dedication over this past year. Starting in early February 2015 away to St. Patricks GAA Club Donabate, struggling to field 2 teams, and culminating with a fantastic trip to Croke Park last Saturday. We now have a very strong squad of approximately 30 enthusiastic and ambitious boys.
The skills the boys have been developing over the past year will serve them well as we progress along the age groups. These skills not only include kicking, catching, striking etc, but also friendship, teamwork, humility and an eagerness to learn. It has been commented on numerous occasions by other clubs to the great behavior and attitude of the boys. They are a credit to their parents, the club and the community.
The trip to Croke Park was a roaring success with the group getting to experience behind the scenes activities of the ground and hopefully we will have some of them back there some day in an official capacity running out to a packed house.
So until we start afresh next January for a tough under 9 campaign, the mentors would like to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
WHO ARE WE???
Yours Lee, Aidan, Simon, Stephen and Zed
