Summer Coaching Sessions
Over the last number of summers, we held very successful summer hurling coaching/games sessions for Under 8s, 10s and 12s. This year Summer Hurling sessions will be organised in Páirc Chiaráin during August for 7 to 12 year olds if there’s sufficient interest. Sessions will be held on Tuesday to Thursday each week during August.
   To determine if it is feasible to run the coaching sessions we need to know the level of interest and are asking parents to indicate if they are interested in sending children before confirming if the sessions will go ahead. The sessions will run from August 11th to August 13th and from August 25th to August 27th. This year we are asking for a small donation towards cost of running the sessions/securing coaches. All sessions will be run by qualified coaches/club mentors.  Times 9.30 to 13.00   (snack break at 11.00)    
Cost   15 euro per week (per family)

We are also asking for a non-refundable deposit of 5 euro for each week being attended and the balance to be paid on the first day each week. Please contact Dermot Whelan 0876813243 or Martin Geary 0872253350 or text your interest to relevant team mentor before August 1 so we can plan and confirm sessions.

Trip to Croke Park
 The club are planning a trip to Croke Park for All Ireland Semi Final between Cork and Tipperary on August 17. Our under 8s and under 10s will play Lucan Sarsfield on route. If interested (TEXT back: CORK with Adult, Child Numbers for Tickets/Bus) to your mentors.
