In the U14 Hurling Championship Semi-Finals St. Eunan’s play Buncrana.
Buncrana U12 & U14 are now in the North Antrim League. They played in O’Donvon Rosses in Belfast last week. The U12’s & U14’s played two very competitive games. They won one and lost one. It is good to see a Dongeal team to compete at a high level of hurling in Ulster.
There is an U8 Hurling Blitz this Sunday in Cardonagh.
Dungloe Club is now in its 4th year in the town, catering for Hurlers at under 8 level, under 10 level and under 12 level. A foundation course is due to be run in June 12 to encourage new coaches and most particularly parents to familiarise themselves with the skills of hurling and to assist in coaching. A child protection course will also be run in tandem with this. Roshine National School also competed in an all county primary school hurling blitz. This is the first time that Roshine School put together a hurling team and with some experienced players from Dungloe Club attending that school, they performed admirably at the competition. Dungloe are competing in the under 8, under 10 and under 12 blitzes throughout the summer and the under 12 mini league in August and September. Training in Dungloe is at 11.30am on a Saturday morning for under 8’s and 5.30pm on a Tuesday evening for under 10’s and under 12’s. Dungloe also had some players selected for the under 12 trip to Croke Park this year. Coaching was successfully obtained for Dungloe national school and Roshine national school this year but a regular and dedicated hurling coach needs urgently to be appointed for regular school coaching in the area.
A big thanks to Marty McGrath who continues to provide coaching lessons to the various Letterkenny and district schools.Tags:
