U8’s Monster Blitz Finals “…in de pairc boy…”

On Saturday, the 14th of October on a bright autumn morning the Glanmire U8’s made their debut in the brand new “Pairc Ui Chaoimh”. This was a great occasion with over 180 clubs represented from every corner of the county and huge credit should go to the organisers, and in particular the GDAs who co-ordinated and supported on the day. Five teams made up 42 young men from the valley of the Glaise Bui descended on the venue with a steely determination to show what they were made of and proceeded to perform fantastically and display their ever improving footballing ability.
Ably assisted by their dedicated coaches (after some initial furore over team selection, mobile phone technical issues and some lost footballs!) and roared on by their parents, brothers and sisters the lads played with “fire in the belly” and “ice in the mind”. None other than Cork dual star Aidan Walsh was heard to proclaim ‘ …Chrisst, Glanmire have a fierce pick…’ as he advised the lads on the importance of teamwork and playing for each other. A great day was had and if the lads keep improving this won’t be the last they see of the new Pairc. A big thank you to all coaches and parents who helped out during the day and over the past year and we are always looking for new volunteers to get involved in any capacity in the club.
