Our Saturday morning academy has brought new life into the club with 70 plus children between the ages of 5 and 7 getting trained in both gaelic football and hurling skills: As can be seen below, Andy Gibbons our redoubtable Kilkenny man is to the fore in passing on the skills of the game and from the photo it is clear that young Donal Mc Enery is learning also.Donal is not from a hurling background!  David Coyle and his team of coaches including Donal, Dan H and Eoin H with Helena and Nancy on administration are doing a fantastic job and while it appears sometimes like organised chaos, the young boys and girls are simply loving it. So well done to all involved and hopefully the weather will keep fine for a few more Saturdays
