Our U10 hurlers who won the C.A.T.S. shield final v Sylane last Saturday in Belclare GAA grounds on a score line of 4-6 to 0-5. Abbey HC invited the CATS (Carnmore, Abbeyknockmoy, Turloughmore & Sylane) but since inception 4 yrs ago we had never won either the cup or shield in either U8 or U10 grade whilst coming close on a few occasions. This was just reward for this group of young enthusiast hurlers who have shown tremendous dedication and commitment throughout the year. This group has been involved in some exceptional games during the year giving both management and parents some fantastic days out. They truly deserved to get their hands on some silverware and the final whistle was greeted with massive celebration. Sincere thanks to all parents for there support and dedication to team for always having the players on time no matter the time or venue. Thanks to Adrian Mooney who refereed the game. Thanks to Jerry Quirke who has looked after this team all year.
