Big shout out to young Emily Blackmore, who has been tracking down to Youghal every Thursday for the last 11 weeks training with the u12 Waterford/Cork Girls Emerging Talent squad. Today, this young girl attended school starting at 9.30 and finished at 3pm. At 3pm she slipped on the gloves for Gaelic football training with the girls school team and afterwards squeezed in the dinner and homework before scooting down the road to Cork courtesy of her chauffeur…mother Catherine Blackmore.
They arrived home just before 9pm, tired but buzzing. Unbelievable dedication and hard work by both mother and daughter to get to this stage and Emily is still under age again next season. Keep up the good work Emily and Catherine.
