Parnell's Coyne Blitz is a classic
PARNELL'S staged the inaugural Karl Coyne Memorial U12 Football Blitz last Saturday. Taking part were Navan O'Mahony's, Kilcock, St Margaret's and the hosts.
The tournament honoured the memory of Karl who played and managed at Parnell's for years. Parnell's took gold with three wins.
They had super shows from Adam Griffin, Scott Redmond, Adam Meyler, Jack Reilly and Liam Fahy.
"It was a wonderful day. The players really enjoyed it." says Gary Cooper. "Big crowds turned up and many thanks to all the clubs, the parents who provided the food, and the mentors for giving their time."
