On behalf of St. Pats Tipperary players, parents, and mentors would like to say a huge thank you to you and everyone in Passage West LGFA for organising another fantastic blitz. This is our second year attending and again our girls had a wonderful day out and plans are already been drawn up for next year! So well done all and keep up the good work!
Francis, I hope you've got your feet up after such an amazing day! From start to finish the blitz was so well organised. The girls got such a kick out of the parade and all the extras like the DJ. The games we played were all played in good spirit and our referees (while nervous to begin with) gained great experience. The day was great for team building. Being from Kilkenny, ladies football is a developing sport an our club draws from a number of local parishes and camogie clubs. It's days like today that friendships are formed and team bonding takes place. The biggest compliment that could be paid to yourselves was when the players decided unanimously (and without any adult influence) that 'today was the best day of their lives'. ' Thanks for providing such a great day for our girls. We'll be back!
A big thank you from the under 8's from Kilmacud Crokes. The girls had a ball everything ran like clockwork. Thanks for all your hard work... We are looking forward to coming back for under 10 tournament already.
Hi Francis, just wanted to say a big thank you from everyone in Celbridge for having our U9s down yesterday. Everyone had a fantastic day - great fun and brilliant memories. And the weather held out too. Thanks again Niamh.
