U14 Denis Kelly and Christy Reid, U12 Michael Delaney, Paddy Ryan, Damien Dunne, John Hogan and Michael Galvin, U10 Michael Ryan and John Hogan, U8 & U6 James Gould, Joe Kennedy & Philip Delaney.

It would not be possible to organise such a vast range of activities at all ages without the support of all team managers, selectors and mentors who give of their time week in and week out during the year. Most teams will have come together for training or matches on at least 50 separate occasions during the year. In addition to training mentors also have other responsibilities, including texting parents, arranging fixtures, preparing the field for matches and putting structure on training sessions. Their work does not go unnoticed and both the Club and parents are grateful for the effort put in.

U6: Some youthful players were introduced to hurling for the first time this year under the enthuastic guidance of Philip Delaney Manager. Training for this age group is concentrated mostly on the basic skills of the game. However there is nothing like the excitement of a match and a number of challenge games and blitzes were organised for the team during the year. The team performed very well in each of these fixtures. New members are always welcome to join.

U8 Highlight of the year for the U8’s was the Meagher Cup: The Club hosted the 9th annual Meagher Cup in September, with teams from Borris Ileigh, Templederry, Upperchurch, and Drom Inch taking part.

A couple of goals before half time gave Borris Ileigh the lead which they held onto until the end, to win the Meagher cup for the first time in three years.
