Clonmore Under 8's in Croke Park

November 8, 2018

30 kids travelled to Croker to play in the Croke Park GAA experience day 2012. On arrival in Croke Park the kids were seperated into 2 teams of 15. The teams were to compete against 2 teams from St Edwards from Maynooth. Each team was given a tour of the dressing rooms under the Cusack Stand and also the warm up room. They were then led out from under the stand on to their respective pitches on the main pitch, this was after their team photo was taken. The game was 40 minutes long and all kids were given at least 20 minutes football. There was some great individual performances from the kids. The teams were then brought up the Hogan Stand and presented with a cup to lift for photos.

Then it was back on the bus and on to Abbrakababra in the square in Tallaght for refreshments.
The club would like to thank Colm Clear (Leinster Council) for all his help and both parents and grandparents were very impressed with the nice relaxed atmosphere for the kids at the stadium. We would also like to thank the Senior Club for supplying the bus and Abbrakababbra for doing us a great deal on the refreshments.
