SOUTH TIPPERARY INDOOR HURLING BLITZ 2011 BY AODAN WRENN
The second session of Indoor Hurling blitzes in South Tipperary took place in the Pat O'Callaghan Sports Complex, Cashel Road, Clonmel on Tuesday 15th of February, at 12.45 pm. Four teams took part in the Blitz: Kilsheelan, Clerihan, Grange and Cahir B.N.S. The aim of the day was that each school would be rewarded for participation. Each school got a lovely plaque that the school can keep. All four schools were delighted with how everything went on the day. All the children enjoyed the day. All children played in each game, as per the rules. At the end of the day Clerihan N.S. won all their three games to win the Blitz overall. They defeated Kilsheelan in the first game and Grange in the second. Cahir BNS defeated Grange and Kilsheelan too. This left the final game between Cahir and Clerihan as the Blitz Final. Grange beat Kilsheelan in the penultimate game of the bltz. In the Final Clerihan proved much too strong for Cahir BNS, and took the honours. It was an excellent day for Clerihan as they performed magnificently over the three matches. They played with determination, steel, skill and style. All nine players played out of their skins in each of the games. It’s a great start to the hurling season for Clerihan as they prepare for the Championship. The nine players who played so brilliantly on the day were: Jack Bourke (captain), Sean Maher, Aiden Lyons, Evan Corcoran, Aiden Phelan, Luke Hahessy, Alan O'Donnell, Dean O'Dwyer and Aaron Condon. Well done to Clerihan, and well done to all the three other schools who played so well throughout the Blitz. Thanks very much to John Cummins for refereeing all the games, Jerry McDonnell for co-ordinating the Blitz, and to the Pat O'Callaghan Sports Complex for allowing us use their splendid facilities.
INDOOR HURLING BLITZES A WONDERFUL SUCCESS
Indoor Hurling Blitzes took place last week at different venues all around the county. 100 teams participated in the hurling and 48 teams took part in the camogie. These events could not have happened without the co-operation of the clubs all over the county who allowed Cumann na mBunscol the use of their facilities. Special thanks is also due to the GDA officers, Cumann na mBunscol officers and teachers who coordinated and assisted at these blitzes. Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol also wish to thank all the dedicated and enthusiastic TY students who willingly gave of their time to assist the GDA officers at these blitzes.
REGISTRATION FEE REMINDER
All schools wishing to compete in Cumann na mBunscol activities for 2011 are encouraged to send the €30 Registration Fee to Mr. Jerry McDonnell, Treasurer Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol, 25 Ballingarrane, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary as soon as possible. This very reasonable fee allows schools to participate in all Cumann na mBunscol activities for 2011. This is an annual payment and should be paid annually. It is NOT a one off payment. If schools could see to it that this fee is paid, it would be much appreciated.
