St Jude's production is a Tymon treat

THE St Jude's Under-13 Invitational event has become a highlight of the calendar.

It took place last Saturday. It was the fifth year of the competition.

"This season it was extended to 9-a-side from 7-a-side to give players more game time," explained Seamus Massey.

Teams came from Galway, Kilkenny, Derry and Kildare. Representing the Dubs were Faughs-Celtic, Lucan Sarsfields and two teams from the hosts.

"We hold it every September on the eve of the All-Ireland Camogie final and it always produces a feast of camogie," added Seamus.

Saturday saw a real carnival atmosphere at the venue as large crowds turned up to cheer on the sides.

The day began with a colourful parade of all the teams from the clubhouse out onto the Tymon pitches.

The morning saw the Group games, while the afternoon was reserved for the knock-out stages.

And what drama there was in the final as Kilkenny's Thomastown beat Carnmore (Galway) with the last puck of the game.

Thomastown then had the privilege of playing at Croke Park last Sunday.
