Bruree took part in the Under 8 Football blitz in Knockaderry on Saturday last. Competing along with Bruree were Knockderry, Feohanagh/Castlemahon and St. Kierans. Bruree were represented by Shane Hogan, Ryan Murphy, Paddy Lynch, Ian Finn, Colm McCarthy, Eimear Hogan, Robyn Finn, Fionn O’Brien and Niall Tobin,
The team was managed by Liam Hogan, Donna Finn and Frank Finn. Bruree played brilliantly in all there matches considering they only had half of their team, and did the Bruree GAA Club very proud. The 8 players had to work so hard in all the games and got not rest during the blitz, as we only had a half a team. Some great talent coming up the ranks and it’s a pleasure to watch our Under 8s competing at such high levels and showing some great skills at this early stage of their young careers. Well done to all the Under 8 players and management.
