Easter Hurling/Camogie Week A Tremendous Success

09 April 2013

The Hurling and Camogie week hosted by Cumann Pheadair Naofa in Milltown playing fields over the Easter week was a tremendous success.

Over 50 participants from the ages of 6 to 12 took part in action packed training and coaching sessions.
The event was co-ordinated by Damien McConville and the coaching was led by C.P.N. hurling and camogie coaches. A large number of C.P.N.  senior hurlers attended throughout the week to share their expertise with the young hurlers and camogs.

Co. Derry players and Ulster Council coaches Kevin Hinphy and Ruairi Convery were in attendance as were Down County hurlers,
St. Peter's Chris Teague and Shamrock's Paul Sheehan.

C.P.N. Under 10 hurlers had the opportunity to practice their new hurling skills when they invited guest team Ballyvarley to play a
challenge game to draw a memorable Easter hurling /camogie week to a close. 

Ballyvarley U-10s were invited to attend the last day of the Warrenpoint training and coaching week to play a lively U-10 team from the seaside town.
After a blistering start Ballyvarley got on top quickly with their strength at midfield showing and playing a strong line right up the spine of thefield Warrenpoint never really got going.

We played 3 sections of 20 minutes and all players were moved around the field from goal keeper to corner forward to give them some idea of playing in the different positions.
Overall a great start to the season with Ballyvarley running out easywinners and a big thank you to Warrenpoint for the hospitality.

Team: Thomas Lennon, Charlie Lennon, Niall Hussars, Imran Hussain, Caitlin Armstrong, Niall Brolly, Matthew Malone, James McKay, Darragh McKay, Rory Brolly, Jonathan Lennon, Ronan Armstrong, Noah lennon.

Matthew Malone       7-9
Nial Hussars            4-2
Thomas Lennon       3-0
Imran Hussain         2-0
Caitlin Armstrong    1-0
James McKay          1-0

Commenting on the success of the week, Hurling Club Chairman Declan Doyle said that the popularity of the Easter hurling/camogie week was evidence of the enthusiasm and participation of juvenile
members of St. Peter's GAA Club in hurling and camogie.
