U12’s in Dublin

Sat morning saw the Shels u12 hurling panel make the trip to Dublin to play in the St. Vincent’s hurling tournament.

The panel was made up of David Doyle, Aodhan Byrne, Conor Roche, Corey Lawlor, Paul Hearne, Sean Cullen, Ben McAleese, Adam O’Leary, Tiarnan Malone, Joe Devereux, Mark Scallan, Dylan O’Neill, Barry Cloake, Sean Og Flanagan, Ryan Keilthy, Eoin McCarthy, Darren O’Leary and Aaron Kinsella. Louis Gainfort and Adam Murphy were also here to give the lads support and encouragement so thank you lads for that. The boys headed off on the bus early for what turned out to be a great day for all. The lads played 4 games in the tournament which was a great achievement because they were all very physical and at least 40 min games. The only way to give a report on today is to say EVERY parent should be extremely proud of their son because they went up to Dublin and represented their club and county with the highest standard of talent and respect. The lads had some questionable decisions put against them but they played on and as a result got to win the shield one more time for the Shels. When all hurling was done the boys went to get watered and fed on the way home. All had a great day and thanks to the parents who travelled to help and give their support.
