Over 150 children participated in the camp ranging in ages from four to twelve. The weather was glorious and the dressing rooms and both pitches were in great order.

We had lots of young volunteer coaches and they did a fantastic job. John McArthur, Michael O’ Brien, Ellie Skehan, Roseanne Power, Michael Walsh, Dara McGrath, Cormac McGrath, Caitríona O’ Brien and Niamh McKeon all did fantastic work and were very patient with the younger children. It’s great to see our younger members volunteering and helping the club in a very positive way.
County players Jamie Barron and Billy Nolan spoke very well to the children about what it takes to reach the standard of a County player.
Trevor Costelloe and Brendan Breen helped greatly in publicising the event.

Seán Ahearne would be very proud of the numbers attending the camp and in years to come hopefully some of these children may play for their club Stradbally and perhaps even their county Waterford.
