Cùl Camp Success
This year's camp got under way straight after a busy festival weekend. It took place from Monday July 4th-8th. What a week we had with over 145 boys and girls taking part. The weather obliged to help it run even smoother. Great skills practiced and games played. Sean Meehan, Cork Footballer visited us from his Kiskeam club on Thursday. He spent some time with every age group, signing jerseys, boots, hurleys etc and giving some very encouraging advice to our young players. Friday was fun all round, ice cream for everyone on a hot day, medals presented and a great big water fight. Well done to this years coordinator Will Fouhy, who is already planning an even better camp for next year. Thanks to Roisin Kelly and all our coaches and helpers too, who make it all happen. Roll on Cul Camp 2023.
Huge thanks to local business man Stevie Howard and his family for sponsoring a fantastic new set of jerseys for our U11 juvenile players. Much appreciated.
