Juvenile News

Under 8’s and Under 10’s Bus Trip


Our delayed under age end of season trip took place on Monday when our Under 8 &10’s teams travelled to Bohadoon. Our under 10’s played in a four team blitz against St. Pats, The Nire and St. Olivers. We played three hard games against excellent opposition and the lads really had a great time. Our Under 8’s played against St. Pats in both hurling and football, they enjoyed two fantastic games. Stradbally Gaa would like to thank St. Pats Gaa for organising and excellent day out for all the kids. The goodie bags and cups of tea were well appreciated by everyone who attended. Following the games we went to MacDonalds and enjoyed Burgers and Chips. The kids had a great day out on the bus, their behaviour was first class and they are a credit to their families and the community. We would like to thank all our volunteers who assisted with the day and a special thanks to Club President Ken Begley for driving the bus, his ears are still ringing from all the kids!!
