Under 10 hurlers travel to Galway for Carnmore blitz

The U10 hurlers set off for their final away trip of the year to Carnmore in Galway for what proved to be a great day’s hurling. 20 players travelled on the day and once again a big thank you to all the parents that came along. We played matches on the day against Carnmore, Ballina from Tipperary and St Josephs, Doora Barefield. Split into 2 teams of 10 there were some fantastic performances on the day, including a controversial “ win” over St Joseph’s where the score was marked down as 3-5 to 3-5 but all in Na Piarsaigh knew we had, in fact, scored 3-6.
Team 1 consisted of; Josh Smith, Vince Harrington, Andrew Stack, Rory Hehir, Cormac Benson, Jack Wall, Sam Duggan, Matthew McGann, Joe Costello and Shane Downey. Vince Harrington pulled off some brilliant saves in goals and there were Trojan efforts by Matthew McGann and Rory Hehir but Cormac Benson has to commended for displays full of heart, guts and skill on the day. A special mention for Jack Wall who played his best match to date, scoring 3 goals on the way.
Team 2 was made up of; James Linnane, Killian McNamara, Andrew Faulkner, Ben Sheehan, Joe McEnery, Wayne Kearns, Jim Beary, Josh Sheehan, Luke Shinnors and Jake Walsh. Again, a great team effort but great performances from Wayne Kearns, Ben & Josh Sheehan and James Linnane. Lots of praise for Jim Beary who put in his best display of the year, and in particular, Andrew Faulkner , who was nothing short of brilliant throughout the day.
The host club again showed us wonderful hospitality and did in fact, present the whole team with a branded sliotar after the matches. We have 2 more matches, at home, thankfully, before the street leagues begin; Sat Oct 18th vs Broadford & Sat Oct 25th Vs Eire Og, Cork.
Quick story to finish; we sometimes wonder if the lads take in all we are telling them! Rest assured these fears were somewhat allayed on Sunday last when I spotted one of our team —at mass—with his Hurley and sliotar!! Something must be getting through!!
