U11s Croke Park Experience.


Good Friday, the journey began from Young Irelands GAA as the excited U11 players boarded the bus for Croke Park. The players did their best to conserve energy and the mentors were sweating organising the 28 players into two teams for their 9-aside games. The boys were given a tour of the dressing rooms on arrival and ran through the tunnel to enter the Holy Grail of Hurling; Croke Park Pitch. The Red team took on Naomh Eoin of Carlow, while the White Team played Borris-on-Ossory / Kilcotton of Laois. The boys gave a great display of hurling before climbing the steps on the Hogan Stand to lift the silverware. Once back on the bus – the boys headed for Liffey Valley to burn off some more energy in Jumpzone. Despite the hopes (and prayers) of the adults onboard; energy was abundant and it was like herding wild broncos back to the bus. What a wonderful day for the players; congratulations to them for representing their club and themselves so well. Thanks to mentors Martin, Eoghan, Pat, Dick, Pat & Martin for all their work with the team. What a wonderful memory for parents and players to have. Éire Óg abú
