Shels U8 in Croke Park

u8The boys U8 went on a Trip to Croke Park on Thursday 2nd July 2009 to take part in 10 a side football game against clubs from all over Ireland. 

The bus left Hollymount on Thursday morning with 31 children and 21 Adults.  The boys were all excited about getting a chance to play on the pitch in Croke Park.  We were lucky enough to get two teams on the pitch to take part in the matches along with Mentors Declan Hearne, Jimmy Doyle, Andrew O’Connor & Richie Malone.   The boys were able to go into the official changing rooms and then run out along the tunnel onto the pitch for their game.  After the game they went up to the Presentation Area for a team photo holding up the cup.  See football photo gallery for photo’s of the day.
A quick visit to the GAA Museum and onto Arklow where we stopped for a well awaited ” Mc Donald’s “.  Everybody had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Training for the boys U8 is every Monday 6.30pm to 7.30pm. All Welcome.
