A big congratulations to our U8 team who played some fantastic hurling in their three matches at the Go Games blitz in McGrath Park, Bagenalstown. A special thanks for the huge effort by all nine players who were able to make it on the day. We were very short of numbers as many of our players were celebrating Holy Communion in Newtown. All nine players had to play every minute of every match, so well done boys! 

We played matches against Myshall, St. Mullins and Mount Leinster Rangers. There were fabulous skills on display by our Ballinkillen players, especially lifting and striking from the hand, and brave defensive blocking. Well done to Thomas who is one of our most improved players, to Callum for all those strong clearances, to Padraig, Dylan and Alec who took tuns in goal and in the backs and pulled off some lovely saves, to Sean who took a hard knock but got up bravely and soldiered on, to Cian who battled bravely all day long, to Evan for working hard in the backs and the forwards, and to Rory for some lovely scores. Keep up the good work!
