It was with great excitement and a little nervousness that our U9’s headed off to the Sports Ground in Galway on Friday, May 2nd to play at half time in the Connacht v Cardiff Blues match. Well done to the Connemara U9’s who played in front of a large crowd with lights overhead, television cameras and crews in attandance and lots of loud music playing around the sportsground. A totally new experience for these young players! Many thanks to our oppisition on the night – Oughterard RFC U9’s team. Thanks also to Ger Roache, referee. A big thank you to all parents and supporters who travelled to watch our young players in action. The final thank you must go to the coaches who travelled to the sportsground with the U9’s, John O’Halloran, Gerard Claffey and Peter Keane. Events like this would not happen without the commitment and dedication of our coaches and volunteers. (IK)
