OUR Hero of the Week this week is none other than Darragh Conlon. Darragh spent Saturday morning coaching at our nursery, in the afternoon provided a masterclass display from midfield for our U16s in the Shield Final, helping the lads to a great win, and chipping in with a score of 1-3. Well done Darragh, you are a credit to your team, managers, and your family. Our deserved Hero of the Week. Take a bow Darragh. Laoch na Seachtaine. The U16s deserve all plaudits this week and following hot on the coat tails of Feile success last week, the lads ran out worthy winners, and despite the scare of 2 late goals, the A Shield was captured by a brilliant team display. With special performances by not only Darragh, but also Darren Robinson, Cameron McCormack and Eamon Hill. Great credit to the management team and all the parents/guardians who run this group of exceptional young men. They are a credit to the club and the amazing way they regrouped after the shock exit from Championship is remarkable. Well done lads. Big thank you goes out to the aforementioned Feile winners, who came to nursery on Saturday, and gave out advice to our kiddies, and showed off the silverware. Thanks everyone, and well done again lads. Well done to our intermediates, who defeated Clann Mhuire in the 1st round of Championship during the week. We are holding our Family Fun Day on July 25th in St Kevin's School. Our Summer Camps and Street Leagues, and also our Annual Golf Classic in The K Club this year are open for business.
