Juvenile Notes

On Monday last our FE12 hurlers travelled to Croke Park to play in a blitz and took in the tour of the Stadium and Museum. We left the club early on Monday morning and spent most of the day in Croke Park , afterwards we travelled to Naas on the way home to play a number of challenge games against the home club. This day out wwas a great opportunity for our young Magpies to play in Croke Park and a memory that will last forever.
