Naomh Mhuire GAA club hosted an Easter coaching week at their club grounds during the school holiday. Over 70 children from the ages of 6 to 14 took part in a programme of Gaelic and sporting skills with club coaches.
The coaching week is a progression from the weekly coaching sessions and is a popular 4 hours daily for the local children during Easter break. Working in 3 groups of young, mid-aged and older the coaching week is aimed at improving current skills through a series of fun filled games and encouraging children all levels of skill to be the best they can be.
The u16s travelled to Kilcar on Easter Monday evening and came away with a good display and their 3rd league win. The 1st half was close with Kilcar strong at midfield and winning this battle in the 1st half. Naomh Mhuire played with a slight breeze in the opening half and had some great scores from Hugh Boyle and Darren Sweeney. Kilcar responded with a fortunate goal which dropped under the crossbar to leave the game all square after 20 mins. A goal from darren Sweeney left the half-time score 1-08 to 1-05 to Naomh Mhuire.
Kilcar got the opening score of the 2nd half however for the remainder of the game Naomh Mhuire took over and kicked some great scores with the forwards moving the ball quickly and playing as a unit. This was a good display from the team with an all-round team-display.
Best for Naomh Mhuire were Cameron Harley in defence, Sean Burns and Conor Boyle who never stopped running, and Hugh Boyle, James Ferry and Sean mc Cafferty in attack who kicked some great scores and were unselfish in their play. Well done lads.

Naomh Muire advanced to the county stages of the gaeltacht competition this evening with a comfortable win in Glenswilly. Showing three changes in the starting line-up the travelling team raced into an early lead with two early goals. John Pidgeon got on the end of a long high ball played into the square and finished coolly to the net. Minutes later it was Shaun 'The Yank' Boyle's turn when he rounded his man and rattled the net. Points from Ciaran 'Moses' McGinley and an industrious Shaun Boyle left Naomh Muire eight points up after thirteen minutes. The home team responded with a point and but where unable to bridge the gap by any more before half time.
The second half saw the Naomh Muire management introduce a number of subs and they continued to add on the scores. Naomh Muire ran out easy winners in the end. They will now face Na Rossa in the semi-final on Sunday at 1pm. (Photos from tonight's game to follow......)
Following the great result by the Seniors and reserves on Monday....The Naomh Muire Under 16s went up to Kilcar and beat a fancied Kilcar side very well with young Sean Mc Cafferty scoring 1-10.
The U-16s who have already beaten Ardara in division 1 of this league and these are great performances which means there is a steady stream of young determined lads coming through the ranks who are only years away from Senior football.
They next game is against Four Masters in the Banks on Monday night and are well worthy of our support. Well done to team mentors Gary Boyle, Sean Mc Fadden and Timmy Mc Bride.
The Minor game scheduled for Friday Night against Ardara, has been cancelled. This game and the other two games will now be scheduled for a later date. The proposed dates are the 24th of June and 2nd of July. Further updates will be provided when available.
Naomh Muire make the trip eastwards tomorrow evening (27/04/11) to take on Glenswilly i gcomortas Peile na Gaeltachta. The winners of this game will progress to the county stage of the competition which will be held in Cloich Cheann Fhaola this coming weekend. Throw-in in Glenswilly is at 7pm.
