On April 14th, our u8 squad headed of on two buses to Croke Park along with parents and coaches for the GAA GoGames weekend. All kids got a tour of the dressings rooms before running out the tunnel onto the pitch. The squad was split up to play O’Raghallaighs and O’Connels of Co Louth. After a great performance by both teams, the kids got to walk up the Hogan Stand and lift the cup. We stopped off at Apple Green for refreshments on the way home. This was a fantastic experience and it will not be the last time we see some of them on the Croke Park pitch. Thanks to all who helped organise the day.
