The Claregalway U14 Féile Ladies Panel, despite their busy schedule over the past few months, still managed to do some fundraising for the The Carers Association. They sold St Patricks Day Ribbons in Flynn’s SuperValu Lackagh and raised €500 for the Association.

Two Claregalway Girls Teams headed to Dublin on Monday 30th of June for a National Blitz in Croke Park. Over sixty teams were participating from around the country. Fifteen U10 girls and fifteen U12 girls took to the pitch in their Claregalway colours for the afternoon session.

Before the games began, the girls were met by county players from Cork, Dublin, Leitrim and Monaghan. They quizzed the county players all about their experiences of being county stars. The two teams were presented with medals and a packed lunch before they took to the pitch for five games against teams from as far south as Kerry and as far north as Derry.

The girls kicked scores into the Hill side of Croke Park as their families and supporters cheered on from the Hogan Stand. Croke Park was bathed in sunshine as the girls got the opportunity to display their skills on the amazing pitch. It was a great experience for the young players and hopefully it will inspire our girls to become County stars of the future.

The Galway Ladies U13 and U15 Area Development for Girls born 1999 and 2001 will begin on Monday 21st of July 7–8:30pm at Claregalway’s Knockdoemore Pitches. The other Clubs in our Group Area are Tuam Cortoon, Miltown, Kilconly, Corofin, St Fursey’s, Annaghdown, An Fhairche, Caherlistrane, Claregalway, Craughwell, Naomh Mhuire, St James and Beagh. This will continue in the local Clubs for six weeks with a Blitz then at the CCOE.

Congratulations to Orla Dixon and Ciara Newell who won Connaught Medals with Galway in Castlebar last Sunday. The Claregalway Senior Ladies play Caherlistrane in Round 2 of the Championship this weekend. Juniors play Ballinasloe in their Championship and there is training for Juniors and U16s on Wednesday at 7pm in Knockdoemore.
