Glanmire u8s host very successful Monster blitz

On the Saturday morning, 22nd of April, the Glanmire club hosted a Rebel Óg Under 8 Monster Blitz in Kiely Park “Buck Leary’s”. In total 16 clubs took part with a total of 36 teams. Glanmire fielded 4 teams, and all the lads as usual gave everything to the cause, whilst displaying their ever improving skills and teamwork (take a bow coaches and parents/brothers/sisters who are helping them practice at home!). Special mention must go the parents and coaches who volunteered (or were ‘volun…told’!!) to help with the set up, food preparation and co-ordination of parking which was well received and commented on by clubs and the GDA. 


This was one of the biggest blitzes run to-date, with over 250 kids playing a total of 54 games and credit must go to all clubs who participated and organised their teams.

A word of thanks to Ian Graham and Sars for the use of their dressing rooms and toilet facilities (we left it well stocked with toilet paper lads).

Thanks also to referees Sean O Donnell, Cathal & Colm McCarthy, Luke Elliott, Rory O’Brien, Daniel Hogan and Conor Twomey. 

Get well soon to two of our players Sean Carey and Donagh Healy who are “walking wounded” at the moment but are soon to be back in action.

We are always open to new players, coaches and helpers (no previous experience necessary), please contact me at 086 6028264 if you would like to get involved,

Mise le meas , John Healy
