Eochaill Óg Under 6's and 7's (Hurling) and Under 12's (Football)

We had an outdoor blitz on Saturday the 24th on Club Arás Youghal. What a great morning it was for all the players, families and friends and visitor teams to Youghal. The club was a hive of activity and carpark was full and there was great support on the field from all who attended. Youghal 6's and 7's (there was a good mixture of ages on all teams) and they played Midleton with some having two and three games. All the parents of the home teams provided sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and refreshments and there was a huge turnout and was well appreciated by the home and visiting teams and we received great feedback from the teams on how well they were looked after. Some of minor players refereed the games and players received a GOLD medal and goodie bag each.

There was sheer excitement on their faces and some great hurling taking place on the pitch and one morning definitely to be remembered by all as for some it was their first BIG MATCH.... The U12's played against Kitha Óg in football and the Youghal team had a great game and good practice for upcoming matches under their Team Manager Phil Monaghan. Our Blitz co-ordinator is Fergal Keenaghan and we like to say thanks for all the effort that is going into these blitz's. They have been running since the end of January and we hope to have further football blitz's this summer. I would also like to say a special thanks to the Super Saturday Ladies who looked after and ran the kitchen so well on Saturday morning as when we did the numbers after it looked like we had approximately 400 people that were looked after in the morning and also thanks to all who helped with the clean up. Well Done!
