Last December our then u8s now u9s recorded a very special video with their own Limerick hurling take on the lyrics of Jingle Bells on a cold night in Mackey Park for a Team Limerick Clean-Up competition and won.
The prize was a training session with a member of the Limerick senior hurling team and for our final session of 2021 on Monday 22nd November we were joined by Limerick hero Diarmaid Byrnes!
Great fun was had as each of the children got to take a shot on Diarmaid who gave them some tips and spoke about the importance of practising over the winter. We would like to thank Diarmaid for giving his time so generously to the children. Thanks too to Team Limerick clean up.
As we finish up for 2021 we would like to thank the children who showed up for each session and blitz with enthusiasm and excitement, they kept all the mentors going through a hard year. It was great to get back to training in the summer and all the players came on as we trained and played in blitzes. Best of luck to the children born in 2012 who move onto u11s next year. Thanks also to the parents for their co-operation and support all year.
Finally, thanks to the u9 mentors and covid supervisors for their dedication all year. Ahane abú!
