On Saturday 25th Nov, U8 hurling teams from around the county took to the all weather pitch in the newly opened Pairc Ui Chaoimh to take part in the final end of year U8 Hurling Blitz Finals, on the new Astro turf from 9am-12pm. On the day Cork Senior players Colm Spillane and Mark Coleman were on hand to meet the teams and take photos with the teams, a big thanks must go to the lads who went around and spoke with every team there on the day.
A special word of thanks must go to our GDA’s who organised this massive event with Colm Crowley arranging all the fixtures, ably assisted by GDA’s Paudie O’Brien, Shane Supple, Noel Crowley and Games Manager Kevin O’Callaghan under the watchful eye of Cork Coaching Officer Kevin O’Donovan, everything ran smoothly. We also had a visit from the Cork County Chairman Ger Lane who spoke with the mentors and some of the players on the day.
With almost players, young referees, linesmen, coaches and mentors on the field from 9.00am to 12.00pm it was a long fun filled morning, add in all the parents and supporters Pairc Ui Chaoimh was a busy place today for our U8 Hurlers.
