The indoor hurling season is now in full swing. There was an increase in numbers at last Saturday’s u-6 session with a enjoyable time being had by players, parents and coaches. Newcomers are still very welcome. On Monday evenings the u-8s are in action at 6.30 p.m. followed by the u-10s at 7.30. On Wednesdays the u-12s take to the floor at 7.30 p.m.
There has been a tremendous response from all juvenile players to the membership renewal initiative by the club and there has been a very favourable reaction by parents to the information booklet issued to all families. Membership is mandatory for all players both juvenile and adult. The fee for 2009 is: adult players €40, student players €20, non playing adults €20 and juveniles €10.
Best wishes to Dinny Cahill, Oisín O Neill and the Portumna team in the All-Ireland Club final on St. Patrick’s Day.
