Mullinahone Juvenile GAA

Our first games of the year are due to begin with our U12 footballers on next Saturday February 21st at 11am in Mullinahone v Ballingarry.  U10 and U16 also back in training with U6 and U8 due to join them out on the field in the coming weeks.  We would encourage as many parents and supporters as possible to attend all games throughout the year and offer encouragement to our future stars.  Registration for U6’s to U16’s must be paid a.s.a.p. to membership officer, Josephine Britton.  All players must be members before playing any games.

Sponsored walk or run cards will be out to all age groups in the next couple of weeks for our walk/run on March 29th. Training continues each Sunday with a walk/run group catering for men/women/children of all levels. At the February monthly meeting, the following club positions were filled.  Vice-Chair, Isobel Croke and Eoin Kelly, Assistant Treasurer, Bill Tobin.

Under 21 Footballers Go Down.

For the second weekend in a row, our U21 footballers suffered a heavy defeat in the championship. On Sunday last in Fethard, they went down rather heavily to Ardfinnan. While the gap was very large at half time, the display in the second half showed a lot more determination than previously seen. A number of the younger players in particular such as Colin Shelly, Michael Cody and Enda Keane showed up well to help older stagers. Jack Shelly, John O’Grady, Richie Walsh, Paul Luttrell and Sean Walzer also showed promise at times. The standard of football displayed over the last 2 weeks must cause concern regarding the attitude to football coaching of this group of players since they were U12’s.
