November 7, 2018

Well done to our under 8 and under 10 girls teams who took part in the annual Passage West under 8 and 10 national blitz on Saturday 9th of September. Thankfully the weather stayed fine and a great day was had by all! Both teams played brilliantly and competed very well in all their games. 
The under 8's played 4 matches against Cork clubs: Glanmire, Ballyhooley, Shamrocks and Beara and had 12 girls line out: Aoibheann Sugrue, Rosie O'Brien, Claire Fitzgerald, Zoe Duggan, Rachel Kelly, Paige Molloy, Milly Cleere, Grace Noonan, Kate Fox, Judy Kelly, Kate Corbett and Kara O'Dwyer. 
The under 10 team also had four games against: O'Donovan Rossa Skibbereen and Fermoy (Cork), Ahane Co.Limerick and Kilmacud Crokes (Dublin) and had 9 girls take part: Abbie Ryan, Leah Horan, Lucy O'Brien, Matilda Molloy, Ella Corbett, Lucy Power, Ailise Fitzgerald, Dawn Moroney and Siobhán Hogan.
Many thanks to all the parents and family members who travelled with the girls to Passage West & to the under 8 and 10 coaches Aileen Sugrue, Molly O Brien, Gerry Kelly, Margaret Hogan, Edward O'Brien and Audrey Moroney who have put in so much work coaching the girls all year! Huge thanks also is extended to the teachers and pupils in Cloneen and Drangan National Schools for all their creative and colourful banner and poster making – they were fabulous and stood out in the parade. Finally, well done to all the under 8 and 10 girls #ourfuturestars who played their hearts out and made their voices heard at the blitz!! We would like to acknowledge and thank everyone in Passage West for running such a wonderful blitz, everything was so well organised, including the weather!ImageImageImage
