SEAN Treacys have congratulated their Under 8s and Under 10s who travelled to Keady last Sunday to play their first outdoor blitz of the season.

Despite low numbers and near arctic conditions the boys went out and made the club proud. They fielded two very young teams today in comparison with the opposition but the “Tiny Treacy’s” (U8s) were not deterred and played out five hard fought draws.

Sean Treacys Under 10s performed fearlessly and skillfully and won one, drew two and lost two. The club must give a special thank you to the U8s who lined out with the U10s to allow the club to field a team.

All said and done, it was a great day out with some great hurling.

Not only did they all play well, they all looked the business in their new skip, generously sponsored by Home Works NI. Sean Treacys would like to say a big thank you to Home Works for the sponsorship and to Chairman Cathal Austin for securing it.

The underage mentors would also like to thank the parents for travelling with the club to the blitz and for their continued support.

The next blitz is scheduled for Sunday, May 13 at the Craobh Rua club, the club would ask all of you to make a special effort to join them. Sean Treacys have training every Friday at 7pm in Clann Eireann field beside Taghnamore school.

Under 8s - Aidan, Conor, Cahan, Casey, Fionn, Barra, Dultach, Enda.

Under 10s - Cory, Kane, Cian, Conor, Calum, Diarmuid, Ruari Og, Ruairi, Pearse.

The club is also appealing to any under 14 or under 16 boys that want to give hurling a try by attending the Sunday training session at 5pm in Clann Eireann field beside Taghnamore school. Sean Treacys have had a brilliant group that are turning out and wish for anyone interested in hurling to come along and give it ago.
