Our U14 boys kicked off their season today Sunday (11/2/'18) with a trip to Galway to play Salthill/Knocknacarra in a challenge game. The bus departed in snowy conditions that felt more like we were heading to Pyeongchang to compete in the Winter Olympics! We played at Salthill/Knocknacarra in Cappagh Park on the Barna road, an impressive facility! We had a comprehensive win against it must be admitted a below full strength side. That said, we were missing a good number of players too. Given the early stage of year and conditions some great football was played. After our game we headed to Salthill stadium clubhouse and well earned refreshments! From there we headed into the stadium to watch the Galway v. Mayo game. The only low spot of the day was enduring the Mayo performance!
A slow struggle through Salthill traffic and stop-off at Supermacs capped a great day! Thanks to Michael Gavin for coming up with a great idea for a day out and using his contacts to get it organised! Finally, great credit is due to our hosts for facilitating everything including after-match refreshments . We hope to reciprocate a visit to Mayo before too long!
