Little girls remember big sisters on their camogie day

Great contest between Clara and Bennettsbridge

CAMOGIE starlets had their day under the spotlight at the weekend.

And as well as enjoying themselves during a series of super games the youngsters remembered to send good wishes to our senior camogie team who were preparing to head to Croker for their All-Ireland Final date with Cork.

All the U8 players involved in a festival of camogie sent Twitter messages of good luck to the Kilkenny camogie team, dreaming perhaps that some day they too will be on the Kilkenny team bus as it travels a glory road

Saturday morning saw almost 170 girls descend on Gowran GAA Club for the Summer Street league finale.

Over the last couple of months, seven magnificent clubs, Clara, Bennettsbridge, O’Loughlin Gaels, St Martin’s, Paulstown, Thomastown and Young Ireland’s played each other every week and the result of it all was a great grand finale day in Gowran.

Local rivalries were renewed and exciting camogie was enjoyed by energetic children and their excited parents and extended families.

T.J. Reid went to meet the young camogie players and answer any questions.

The youngsters were delighted to have their hurling hero at their games.

Connolly’s Red Mills sponsored medals for all the girls. The medals were presented presented by Connolly’s company representative Jack Nolan.

Local businessman P.J. Cullen of Centra, Bennettsbridge sponsored treats for all the players.

Who knows….maybe some of these players will be Croke Park stars in years to come?

And who were winners of the camogie festival in Gowran?

That’s an easy one to answer?

It was every little girl who brought along a hurley to the feast of sport.
