St Galls Under age hurlers turned out in force last night (Thursday 29th May) at woodlands playing fields. A total of 32 kids Togged out in the blue and white of St Galls for games against Brid Og (amalgamation of St Agnes Eire Og St Brigids). We fielded teams at U6/U8/U10 and considering 12 more players were on holidays/unavailable hurling is starting to blossom again at miltown row, add this to the great work being done at U12/U14/U16 you can only be enthusiastic. The boys and girls hurled out of their skin and these young hurlers are improving every week honing their skills at blitz and training. However the biggest positive is seeing hurlers/parents/coaches smiling from cheek to cheek and enjoying their hurling this is what the Gaa is all about. Also a mention must go to Brid Og for accommodating us and also to the work that they are doing promoting hurling, all the games were tightly contested and they are definitely a team to look out for in the near future NGA…

John Martin: The road to Damascus
AS regular readers will know, it’s not often that I make the right choice. Take last week’s prediction that Antrim would secure progression to the Leinster Championship quarter-finals by beating Westmeath on Sunday – I was wrong by the small matter of 17 points.
Well done to our U10 girls footballers for todays displays, doesn’t do them justice for how good they done and how much they entertained all the spectators who came to Milltown for a great day of Gaelic culture that was on display. After not winning the first match we went on to win against, na Fianna from Dublin, Fingallians from Dublin, we drew with Naomh Brid and won against Lamh Dhearg. That got us into the semi-finals where we played Fingallians again and were victorious again.The amount we scored doesn’t matter to us, what is more pleasing is the fact that we didn’t concede a single score. We then faced Moneyglass in the final and according to all ,including the Dublin teams,it was one of the most fiercely competitive matches they have witnessed at this age group!! This is because we train like we want to play and we play to improve and to show how good all our panel are. Unfortunately Moneyglass pipped us by a single point in the final and congratulations to them,they are a great team. However like we tell our players”the other team won,but nobody lost”.We had 14 players today and everyone played their part brilliantly right throughout the panel but special mention must go to our captain and MVP, Aobh Dunn who was magnificent throughout the blitz. So a great day all round and back to training this week girls,Positive,Forward moving football,never stand still!,well done from all the Management team,N.G.A
Thanks also to everyone that helped to make such a successful day at Milltown
