U-8s: The O’Rourke Fireplace sponsored U-8 boys played against a very well trained Ballycumber/Tubber team last Wednesday evening. This was the best team that they have played this year and it highlighted to the boys the importance of teamwork.

Croke Park Tours: A series of Croke Park tours are being organised for all underage squads. The trips will be subsidised by the club and will consist of a tour of the stadium and museum (which includes a St Brigid’s section) followed by a meal. The U-8s and U-10s have been booked in for tours on August 24th and the 31st respectively while the U-12s will be visiting the Croke Park museum before attending the Roscommon minor semi-final game, along with the U-14s and U-16s, on September 1st. Parents will be notified of full details in due course.

Coaching camps: Following on from the success of the coaching camp for U-14s/U-16s and minors, further camps will be held for U-12s (August 17th), U-10s (August 24th ) and U-8s (August 31st).
