It’s 2 years since the country was locked down and sporting activities were shut down, so with the announcement of a well deserved long-long weekend we decided to postpone Saturday mornings Kevins Heroes and Donore Credit Union ABC Nursery. Go Games matches and underage training went ahead as normal where coaches and parents were still in town. Our under 10 hurlers travelled to Bunting Road to play St James Gaels. The under 11 girls hosted our neighbours Crumlin in Loreto College and performed well. Both under 12 hurlers were in action on Saturday afternoon. We hosted Na Gaeil Oga in a windy Dolphin Park and also travelled to St Vincent’s and were happy to report strong performances by both squads. Our under 15 camogie squad played St Peregrines in a mighty battle but lost by a point. We also welcomed some new referees who made their go Games debuts. If you are interested in taking up the whistle please contact referee coordinator Conor Byrne on 086-0696452.
On Sunday our Under 17 hurlers had a good win in the league and our Under 19s had a bye. Dublin Camogie were playing in Croke Park for the first time in many years and a number Kevins members popped out to support the girls in blue. They were pleasantly surprised to recognise some of our under 12 hurlers kick football at half time during the Dublin Donegal NFL game, as some of our hurlers play with St James Gaels. It was a great experience and no doubt a great memory to have in years to come.
What’s in the pipeline for the coming week, apart from fixtures and training?
