U6 + U8 hurling blitz a big success.

The Shelmaliers under 6 and under 8 hurling blitz was held in Hollymount last Saturday morning.

Over 50 of our own boys turned up making up two teams in both age groups. The other participating teams on the day were St. Martins, Oulart and Blackwater. Each team got three games with a fine display of hurling
on show for the large crowd present. When the hurling was finished all the players were presented with medals by senior camogie stars Kate Kelly and Bridget Curran. A sincere thank you to all Mentors and Parents for all their hard work in organizing everything both on the pitch and afterwards in the complex where our culinary skills were reported to be simply superb. A fantastic fun day was had by all and to top things off all the boys were transported to Leisuremax in Drinagh and treated to two hours of non stop play. A big thank you to Ardcavan Coaches for sponsoring this, as it was a lovely gesture and the kids had a great time. Finally, thanks to each and everyone who made the whole day such a huge success, and a memorable one for our young, up and coming Shels players of the future.
