Casteldaly GAA Underage – U6, U8 and U10 Review 2019:
It was another busy and exciting year for our underage players. Training took place on Friday
evenings and the large number of children training and enjoying themselves is a good omen for the
future. The U6 team put the skills they learned into practice towards the end of the season when
they played some blitz matches against local teams.
The U8 team had an eventful year taking part in ‘Go Games’ blitz days around the county and also
playing in Cusack park as part of the All County blitz. The highlight for these young players was their
trip to Croke Park in April to take part in the GAA’s ‘Play and Stay’ initiative. This was a great
experience for all involved.
The U10 team also had a busy schedule of blitz days. As well as the regular ‘Go Games’ fixtures every
second week the squad took part in the Larry Nugent Cup in Caulry. They also teamed up with their
counterparts in Rosemount to take part in the Fingallian’s tournament in Dublin. This day proved to
be a great success with the combined team playing under the Cill Óige name winning the cup. They
had to play against some very strong teams from around the country in doing so.
The season finished with the annual Coughlan Cup tournament in Castledaly. This proved to be a very enjoyable
day for all the teams involved and the U10 team finished the season on a high by winning the shield
competition. Many thanks to all the parents and everyone who supported our young players during
Under 6: Cormac Nee, Adrian Hurley, Fergus Quinn, Mark Lawlor.

Under 10: Richie Dolan, Jack Higgins, Lorcan Dolan.
