Under 11 hurlers going well

U11 TRIP TO BALLINCOLLIG, CO CORK June 18 2016

Na Piarsaigh U11’s were recently invited to bring three 11 a side teams to the Joe Delaney Tournament in Ballincollig, Co Cork. With a lot of support from Chris and Johns U10’s and a very influential crew from NAP Camogie – not to mention great support from parents and mentors – the bus headed off early on Saturday 18th June for a great days hurling.

Against the formidable large contingent from James Stephens( Kilkenny), Ballyboden St Endas from Dublin (who have 80 U11’s!), and a sizeable local squad from Ballincollig, NAP acquitted themselves admirably and left with heads held high and much praise from the hosts.

Limited space on the bus meant other supporters, including the Fahys and Halligans drove south and their encouragement was much appreciated

It was WIlly Mulcahy(Cycling legend of Caherdavin Cycling club1949) who got them underway.
We had 2 cycles running in tandem with 50k and 75k cycles.
We would like to extend our thanks to Newmarket GAA club for allowing us to stop outside their club for a food stop before hitting the road again.
Meanwhile back in the club the walkers and runners were busy warming up compliments of Mr Motivator himself Richie Clifford who did a great job.
Once the walkers took off it was don to our 10k runners.
A strong field was on show with Great Limerick Run winner Martin Doody leading the field and he didnt disappoint coming home the winner after a battle with James Doran in a time of 32.50
