White’s Cross GAA on tour in Croke Park

A great day for the Cork Senior Ladies Footballers in Croke Park in September and there were 26 juveniles and 3 adults from White’s Cross GAA club supporting the team (and especially the goalkeeper Elaine Harte from White’s Cross).
Everyone had a great day out where we left at 11am from the clubhouse and arrived back at Hennessy’s Petrol station at 10pm ; tired bodies , tired voices but memories that will last forever!
A special thanks to Conor Kelleher for all his efforts in the planning and organisation of the day out.
A few photos can be seen below of the WX gang at GAA HQ.
