U6 & U8 Football

As we enter into the month of October it is time for these young teams to take a break for the winter, with our U8’s finishing up with a match against Kilrosanty last Monday night, 1st Oct. in Rathgormack, & the U6’s finishing their weekly training sessions last week. The club would like to sincerely thank all the boys who attended the training sessions every Tuesday night since February, & a special thanks to all the parents who took time to bring their budding footballers along to develop their skills. There is some great talent amongst these young players & if they keep playing & enjoying Gaelic football over the coming years, there is no fear for the future of Rathgormack GAA Club. A special thanks to all the coaches who gave their time throughout the year, & we look forward to seeing ye all back in action again in early 2013. The U10 & U12 teams both have some blitz’s to complete during October before they finish up their activities for the year.
