2019 All Britain Championship – Day 1/2

July 11th, 2019 | Club News, Youth Zone

Parnells will be represented across all age groups this weekend as the ABC’s begin in Greenford. Our players did fantastically well in the Primary Schools competition.

Delighted to congratulate St Teresa’s RC School who won the Yr 5 and 6 Cup. Our Assistant Treasurer, Jackie Cox’s son, Matthew, was interviewed on camera and spoke brilliantly. He and many of his team mates play with Parnells. The same for Robert Southwell who won the Shield and St Bernadettes who gave a great account of themselves.

Our U8’s and 10’s loved their afternoon of gaelic which followed on from the school’s competition.  On the Saturday it was the turn of the U11’s and 15’s boys and U12 and U14 girls.  When it comes to the competitive age groups their is an opportunity,  depending on how the teams finish in the group stages, to compete for silverware.  Both of the boys team’s age groups did fantastically well and reached the cup play offs and made the semi finals but that was where the journey ended.  All players gave 100% but unfortunately it was not to be.  The U12 girls reached the semi final of the shield and the U14’s also won many of their games as well.

Wishing all our U13’s, U17’s and U16 girls all the best in the final day and an enjoyable tournament and we will see you all with your parents for a great feast of football and hurling.

Best of luck to Provincial Council, referees, organisers and all those behind the scenes.
