Joe Donnelly Memorial U12 Hurling Tournament 2015

posted 5 Oct 2015, 04:38 by Moneygall GAA
Our annual Joe Donnelly Memorial U12 Hurling Tournament took place on Sunday afternoon and proved a great success.  We had four clubs taking part – Moneygall, Templederry, JK Brackens and Shinrone – with two teams from each club, and around 90 players involved in total.   The teams were divided into A and B groups, with each team having 3 group games and a final.

In Group A, Moneygall and JK Brackens contested the Cup Final, with Moneygall coming out winners.  Also in Group A, Shinrone beat Templederry in a keenly contested Shield Final.

In Group B, JK Brackens were too strong for Shinrone winning the B Shield Final.  Moneygall beat Templederry in the B Plate Final, helped greatly by a strong performance by full back and Player of the Tournament, Maria Maher.

A big thanks to all four clubs for taking part; thanks also to all those who baked and made sandwiches and helped with catering; to our referees, Patsy Greene and Philip Bergin, and umpires; to our groundsman Michael Sullivan; and thanks to Pat and Alison Donnelly for presenting the trophies.  Thanks also to Sandra Thompson Quinlan who supplied all out photographs (below).
