U-13 blitz enjoyed by all

Seven weeks of development work and training sessions came to an end in Ferns on Sunday when the Wexford camogie development committee organised a final countywide blitz for all its participants.

Four teams took part in three well-contested games, with almost 60 Under-13 camogie players from nearly every club in the county involved. The emphasis was very much on skill development, enjoyment of the game and the inclusion of all.

Each participant was presented with a certificate and a memento by Joe Roche, County Development Officer. He thanked his committee members who had worked so hard, especially his Secretary Stephenie Curtis, Noel McSweeney, Ornagh D'Arcy, Pat Redmond and Lorraine O'Connor.

He also thanked Mick Curran, David Byrne, Geraldine Curtis and Aoife Curran who helped out with the coaching on the day, and the two young referees, Michelle Keogh and Meagan Roche. He expressed his gratitude to the families who provided the refreshments and to those who sponsored the certificates and mementoes.

He complimented all the parents for their dedication in driving the girls to the training sessions and the girls themselves, for their hard work, dedication and enthusiasm throughout.

The future for Wexford camogie is looking bright, he said. In conclusion he thanked the various G.A.A. clubs from north and south of the county who made their facilities available to the committee. A great day was had by all.
