Halloween Camp Concludes on a High Note …
Mullingar Shamrocks Halloween camp concluded on Thursday afternoon, our third camp of the year for players aged 6-11. The camp ended on a high note when Callum Rigney Clyne arrived in Springfield with the Paddy Walsh Cup, the trophy awarded to the county Minor champion’s captain. Callum with Ryan Kelly was joint captain our champion team. Photo opportunities were availed of with Callum, Criostóir, Adam and Paul of the county champion team.
Once again, the Halloween Camp was a great success thanks to the efforts of Pat Collins, Secretary of our Underage Committee whose attention to detail ensured that the camp moved as smoothly as possible, GPO Eanna Holland, and coaches’ coordinator Barry Kelly. Over 50 boys and girls enrolled and enjoyed three fun filled days of drills, skills, competitions and earnest endeavour. The weather was as expected for the time of year but the girls and boys (and coaches) wrapped up well and coped admirably. The feedback from participants and their parents was once again positive. Pat Collins delved into his Halloween goodie bag and was on hand with the usual treats on Thursday afternoon.
The efforts of our young coaches were crucial to the successful running of the camp and thanks to Luke McCabe, Leah Glynn, Ruairi Kelly, Zara Corroon, Grace Hanly, Aideen Langtry, Criostoir Ormsby, Paul Keating, Adam Glynn, Declan Newman, MJ Burke and Katie Matthews whose enthusiasm, patience, skills and good humour made the camp the success it was. Thanks to the parents without whose support the camp would not be possible and most of all well done to the young people who defied the elements.
Well done to all involved.
