Thursday 13th April: The Club’s U12 hurlers will travel to Croke Park next Thursday 13th April. We will meet at Ballymacward Hall at at 7.15am and travel by bus to Croker. Other Galway Clubs who will also attend on the day are Loughrea, Portumna, Cappataggle, Michael Cusacks and Tommy Larkins. Each Club listed above, including ourselves will field two teams and play off a series of games against each other in the Stadium.
There is free admission on the day and FREE parking in the David Stand Car Park. Littlewoods Ireland have also sponsored a fun pack which will include a Jersey for all kids involved and there is tea and coffee for all on arrival. The restaurant will be open on the day also. Any parents, grandparents etc who wish to attend are free to do so. Please note that no parents/spectators are permitted to gain entry to the pitch. Team photos can be taken at pitch side, but must be organised to be taken in between playing times. The Connacht GAA website will post team photos and loads of action shots after the event, which is free to use by all.
We ask all parents to pack a big lunch with lots of drinks for their children as it won’t be until the way home that we stop to eat. I’m sure all our Players, Coaches (Martin Scarry, Eddie Mitchell, Michéal Kelly, Seán O’Neill, Niall Skehill and Paul Hogan) and any parents, relatives or supporters who travel will have a super day in the greatest Stadium of them all!
