Tir Chonaill Gaels Minor Board Club Notes - 8th June 2009

TCG U10 and U8 Blitz
Despite thunderstorms early in the morning we had an excellent Blitz atGreenford on Sunday. The weather cleared and we had 10 visiting clubs plus ourselves making up a total of 15 U10 teams in three groups and a 6 team U8 group. In a non-competitive enviroment a great day was had by all and it was a great advertisement for the growing interest in Gaelic Footall at the U10 and U8 levels. It was lovely to see players of all skills levels and ages giving the game a go and loads of smiles on faces both playing and watching. Our own TCG U8 boys and girls played in their first ever 
tournament and loved it while two U10 teams gave good accounts of themselves.

The TCG Minor Board and U10 Management Team would like to thank the core of hard workers who helped to setup and organise the day, James and Kevin McFadden and Noel 
Geraghty who despite a few early phone calls during the rain asking for a lie in, were up early to set up the pitches. The minor board members and parent helpers who ran the barbeque, registrations and tuck shop and helped tidy things away afterwards. The parents and minor players who stepped in to help with the refereeing and looking after the three TCG teams. Brendan Vaughan for his photography skills. All of the clubhouse staff - Yana, Anne-Marie, Lois and co. - who were kept very busy. Yvonne Morely and Karen Togher for the supply of Goals and to Phil Roache for transporting them, and finally all of the participating teams, their management, players and supporters who made it an extremely enjoyable day for all!
