Rosegreen GAA Club News

The weather has had an adverse effect on training and matches for the various teams. The pitch has been badly cut up over the last couple of weeks so hopefully we will get some dry weather and all can return to the regular training schedules.

Our Junior football and hurling teams - have played a number of games over the last couple of weeks. The football team had a good win over Sologhead and we remain on a 100 per cent record for this competition. The hurling team lost to Cashel and need two further wins to secure a semi final place. There have been a number of serious injuries affecting our players lately and hopefully it won’t impact too much for the remainder of the season. The club would like to send best wishes to David Quirke and Sean Cormack, both of whom had to undergo operations as a result of injuries picked up in recent games.

We are scheduled to play a hurling game at the weekend so please check out the fixtures in the sports supplement of the paper. We would like to see a lot more of our supporters attend our games on a more regular basis. Support our teams please for the remainder of the season.

Kellogg’s Cul Camp - Over one hundred kids ranging in age from six to fourteen attended the Rosegreen GAA Cul Camp last week. This was a major success even though the weather tried everything to be a spoilsport . The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and gained valuable experience throughout the week. The secret to a successful Cul Camp is based around good organisation and good quality coaches. Fortunately we had those in abundance for the week. Many thanks to all those who helped out in any way whatsoever, too many to name individually, and especially to Matt Geraghty and Kevin Halley for all their help. These camps are hugely beneficial for the kids and go a long way in improving their skill levels.
