Kilmacud kids paint a bright tomorrow

THE Sevens dust has just settled, but the work goes on all the while. Not much sleep at Stillorgan these times.

The Saturday morning Nursery is flourishing.

And there's fabulous work going on in the schools.

Camogie chief, Aidan Roantree is delighted. "Things are really going well. The juvenile section is thriving and we have so many good mentors giving their time. We are thrilled with the progress."

In time, many of the children could well emulate the worthy deeds of Dublin's Rachel Noctor.

The SE Systems All-Ireland Kilmacud Crokes Sevens gave the young players the chance to see other top stars in action.

Fifty clubs from 24 counties took part. St Ibar's Shelmaliers took gold. Camogie President, Aileen Lawlor, was among those that were impressed with the organisation.

Aileen played and refereed in the Crokes Sevens over the years. She always got the warmest

welcome at Pairc De Burca.

And now with two adult teams, and a teeming under-age structure, the Crokes Castle is cemented with promise.
