U-10 CAMOGIE – The Emeralds U-10 camogie girls played their last blitz for this year in their home ground in Urlingford on Saturday, 31st August. The girls had a great day out. They played against Muckalee, Clara and Johnstown. Their first match against Muckalee was very close but Urlingford won in the end, 1-0. Next they played against a very strong Clara team, and after working hard for the entire game they were narrowly beaten by 3-2. The last match was against Johnstown, and our girls put on a great performance and won by 4-1. Because of the big number of u-10 girls on the day, Emeralds were able to make two teams and played second matches against Muckalee and Clara. Unfortunately, after playing very well they were beaten in both of these games. After a great summer of training and matches the girls were justly rewarded with medals afterwards, which were presented to them by Derek Lyng. Team: Cora Norton, Rachel Hawkes, Aisling Hickey, Ruth Ryan, Louise Wellwood, Roisin Ahern, Emma Gleeson, Sarah Phelan, Isobel Doyle, Katie McLoughlin, Ella Hayes, Niamh Campion, Ciara Queally, Lucy Kavanagh, Saoirse Burke, Louise Hickey, Karen Campion, Emma Kenny, Aoife Garrett, Tara Queally and Jessie Leahy (injured).
