We had a large crowd of kids at our academy sessions this evening with the girls group kick-starting their sessions under the watchful eyes of Dee Travers, Padraig Kirwan and Mary Delahunty. The u7 boys were kept on their toes by Mick McCarthy and Michael Reid which is no mean feat. The second session of u8 & u9 boys had over 30 lads but had Miguel, Colm O’Donoghue, John Hearne and Mike Molloy putting them through their paces. Over 60 kids between the 2 hours with plenty fun had. But without these guys giving up their time every Friday evening the academy would not take place. It is growing year on year and it is thanks to coaches volunteering for making this happen and keeping the show on the road. The club are extremely lucky and very grateful to all our coaches throughout the club. To each and everyone of ye, massive thanks.
