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.
