Busy, and productive, start to the season for Gleann Na Laoi GAA

Gleann Na Laoi GAA Juveniles had a very busy few months so far this season. First they went on a trip to watch Cork play in a football league match in Parc Ui Rinn in February, the players travelled on a double decker bus to the game, and were treated to refreshments in O’Briens Costcutter on the Bandon Road afterwards. They ran a two day Easter Camp, which was attended by 70 children, and there was great fun, with obstacle courses, fun races, rounders and of course hurling and football games. The U12 Football team was invited to Croke Park to represent the county of Cork, as part of the clubs successful certification in the Cork Rebel Og Benchmarking programme. The team played Listowel Emmets, St Olivers from Waterford and Lissycassey, the players won all the games, and were treated to a tour of the Croke Park. Finally, a Long Puck competition for our young players took place on Bank Holiday Monday. Now that the season is in full swing, all underage teams are involved in football and hurling league matches, and the U8 and U10 players are preparing for the kick-off of the Rebel Og Monster blitzes. Gleann Na Laoi GAA are always delighted to welcome new members to the club and train every Wednesday evening at 6.45pm in Ballycannon Park, Kerry Pike.
