Saturday gone was a great day for Abbeyknockmoy Camogie as we got our 2nd piece of silverware for the club this year. Our Under 12's played against Moycullen on Saturday and came out victorious in what was a really good, action packed and skillfully played game. It's a great outcome for our Abbey girls and it goes without saying that it wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for the hard work put in by the coaches and players during the year.

Our U's hosted their 1st blitz this year with Tuam and Ballygar attending. It was a great day for all who attended as these promising young players hurled with great determination and respect for each other.
