Our first outing of the year was to Athlone GAA on Saturday morning to take part in an Under-8 blitz, along side Athlone, Caulry, Castledaly and Tubberclair. Despite the wind and cold, we had a great turnout of 31 young players on the day, which allowed Garrycastle to field 3 teams, and each team played two matches.

Some great skill was on show from all the players, and for most of them, this was their first time taking the field in a Garrycastle shirt, the first we hope of many, many days playing for the club.

Huge thanks to Athlone GAA for an excellently run blitz, and the much appreciated refreshments at the end. Many thanks also of course to all the parents for cheering on their young stars!
