Connaught Ground Hurling Blitz

Congratulations and commiserations to the under 12 Mitchels hurlers who got to the ‘A’ final of the ‘Connaught Ground Hurling Blitz’ in Pearses last Saturday, but were beaten by Roscommon Gaels. Earlier in the playoffs they had actually beaten Roscommon Gaels, Castlerea and Pearses. They then defeated St. Dominicks in the semi-final and met Roscommon Gaels again in the final. They led in the final for most of the game but a late goal by Roscommon Gaels saw them take the title. Well done to our ‘B’ team who also took part in the competition and to the Ballyvary team who travelled up with us to Pearses. It was a wonderful day for hurling and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thanks to all the team mentors and parents who travelled and to Pearses who organised the day.

Under 12s To Play in Galway League

The under 12s play their first game in the Galway league this week when the take on Barna on Wednesday evening. This is a new departure for our teams who are hoping to continue to up their standard by playing against the top teams in Galway. While Barna is not a traditional hurling stronghold in Galway, they have been making considerable strides with underage hurling. We wish the team well in their new venture.

Under 14 Championship

On Friday next the 26th of May the under 14 ‘A’ team get their championship off to a start when they take on Tooreen in Aghamore at 7pm.

Then on Saturday morning the ‘B’ team take on Ballina in Castlebar at 12noon.

Under 14s prepare for Féile in Cork

Mitchels under 14 hurlers will be hosted by Inniscarra Hurling Club of Cork at this year’s Féile na nGael. Inniscarra is a few mile outside Cork City on the western side. On Thursday Mitchels will travel down and they will play their host team Inniscarra on the Friday at 3pm. On Saturday they will play Valley Rovers from Cork at 10am and at 1pm they take on Camross from Laois. All the games will be played at the Inniscarra grounds. If anybody is interested in travelling down to Cork they should contact Gerry Lane or Paddy O’Brien as soon as possible.


Lots of games were postponed during the week due to the inclement weather including the Senior Championship game versus Ballyhaunis, the under 8s Go Games in Ballyvary and the National Schools semi-finals.
