Club Shop

Juvenile Indoor Training
Our Indoor training resumed last Saturday in the Community Centre and will continue at the same times over the coming months.

Fe10
Training resumed in the ball alley last Saturday morning for our under 10’s. Due to the size of the group and the size of the ball alley the lads were split into two groups.  The first group trained from 9.45 to 10.30 with the second group training from 10.30 to 11.15.  It was great to see these enthusiastic young hurlers back in action.  They were put through their paces with an array of fitness drills which helped them all to shake of the cobwebs from the break and keep them warm on what was a very cold morning.  It’s great to be back!

Fe16
Our Fe 16s started back training on last Thursday at Midleton College Hockey Pitch. There was full attendance at training, which was great to see. It's unlikely that we'll have any League games until 20th February, however training continues next Thursday at 18.00 hrs in the Hockey Pitch.
On Saturday night last our Fe 15 Footballers were honoured as November 2015 month winners at the annual Rebel Og awards at SilverSprings. A number of our players and mentors were present. All enjoyed a great night in the midst of all the other monthly award winners.
