Another great year for our young hurlers, with our combined u14’s team recently coming 2 nd in the Shield competition. We have also had 3 of our hurlers, Conor,
Cillian and Evan representing the Club at County level.

The hurling club has grown phenomenally this year, with over 80 players training on a Monday night in Piltown at u10 levels and below and our u14 team continuing to compete competitively in association with St Pats.  This year we started to reach out to our youngest players, by adding hurling coaching in to the academy on a Sunday morning and this has had a very positive impact, with large numbers of younger kids committing to training on a Monday night as well as the tasters they get in the Cage and at the academy.

The u13 Season is about to start, new players from 11 years old welcome, Training 2 nights per week, Monday in Piltown and Thursday in St. Pats

Not even willing to take the winter off, the club once again entered teams in the indoor tournament in Gormanstown this January and as usual our future champions played well and did their club proud.

Interestingly, quite a few of the hurling players are not dual
players and only want to play hurling for the club, so the development of the hurling is bringing new members into our Cilles family and the local area. Hurling is really taking off locally, with training now taking place in Donacarney Boys
National School and Gaelscoil an Bhradáin Feasa. If we all pull together maybe we can make East Meath the hub of Meath hurling in the future!

A new u16’s Camogie team Camogie team were established this year and have competed competitively. This will give the  younger girls currently training on a Monday night somewhere to progress to in the future and has inspired many of our female players and Gaelic for Mum players to take up a Camáin for the first time. Maith sibh.

The coaches are working hard and are inspiring our young members and not just in relation to their hurling skills.  The coaches are outstanding in terms of their commitment to their young hurlers and the time they give to the teams and we are very grateful for their ongoing commitment.

Of course, we could always use some extra help, so please step forward if you would like to help out.
