Recycle Hurleys and Helmets or trade in your Helmet

Dear Club Members & Supporters,

Recycle Hurleys and Helmets or trade in your Helmet

The club is appealing to anyone that has old hurleys or helmets, in good condition, that may be put to further use for our beginners at Under 6s and Under 8s . If you have hurleys or helmets thrown in the shed that your players have outgrown and are still in good condition we would be delighted to receive them and pass them on to the next generation of hurlers. Hurling can be a comparatively expensive sport for young beginners and we are attempting to remove any obstacle that may prevent any young player from taking up the game.

We are also running a trade in scheme for Helmets –
Please note that if you need a new helmet and want to trade in an old helmet, contact a club committee member or a coach re details of how to do so.
We also have new helmets available at a subsidised price. You can get a helmet from the club for up to €30 less expensive than you can buy one in a shop (exact same brand)
Teresa Quain will deal with all your queries on the above and her mobile number is 086 3287391
Many thanks

U10’s against Kinsale

U10’s against Kinsale

The U10 hurlers got back to winning ways in Kinsale on Tuesday evening. From the start they showed great courage and skill. With early scores from Robert Docherty and Harry Coughlan, White’s Cross were well in control at the break. Despite a brave fight back by Kinsale in the second half, an outstanding performance by Brendan Quain, Senan Ryan and Luke Kelleher was a major factor, making life very difficult for the home side. Constant pressure from Stephen Whooley, Patrick Harrington and Ciaran Aitken who chased every ball around the goal mouth upfront added more goals in the second half. When the pressure was on White’s Cross, some good defending was displayed by Ethan Ryan and Eddie Coughlan. Overall a great team performance from the White’s Cross team

White’s Cross GAA Kellogg’s Cúl Camp Report

White’s Cross GAA were the first out of the traps this year holding the very first Cúl Camp in the country this summer, running from June 24th to 28th, taking advantage of the relatively early date for summer holidays at Upper Glanmire National School.  This year’s red, green and white kit went down a real treat with our group of boys and girls – as it represented both our club and county colours!

First and foremost a big thank you to the one hundred and fourteen boys and girls who attended this year’s camp.  Thanks to the Coaches and their Assistants who worked diligently and enthusiastically all week to ensure all participants benefited from the activities.  Thanks to John Meade, Richie Sherlock, Ruairí Murnane, Paul Harte, Marion Delaney, Martin Reid, Niall Twomey, Conal Smith, Sean Twomey, Kelly Falvey, Luke Cambridge, Ciarán Quain, Fearghal Reid, Adam Bransfield, Laura Cahill, Jack O Driscoll, Michelle Barry, Ronan Quain, Kate O Callaghan, Tony O Keeffe, Cillian Hall, Aaron Kent, Cormac O Flynn & Ross Murphy.  Thanks to Teresa & Martha Quain, Dean Kennedy, Michelle Whooley, Catherine O Shea, Joan Twomey, Imelda O Connell & Mike O Flynn who were on hand to tackle different chores and made the job of the camp co-ordinator i bhfad níos éasca.

The camp was spread across two venues, with the younger children based at the Upper Glanmire Community Centre and the rest based at White’s Cross GAA grounds.  Thanks very much to Upper Glanmire Community Association for the use of their facilities – their sports hall is a huge asset to our community.  It was during the equivalent week last year that we had the torrential rain, that led to much flooding throughout Cork city and county, and at the time the hall allowed our camp to continue without a postponement.  Indeed White’s Cross GAA camp has never had to cancel a day of activities in its eleven years in existence.  This year the weather proved particularly kind to us, and the only reason we took the boys and the girls to the hall this time around was to take momentary shelter from the strong sunshine!

Thanks to White’s Cross GAA members for their assistance – in particular thanks to Pat O Callaghan and Dave Buckley.  Thanks also to the committee of the Juvenile Club for their support, many of whom are listed above.

Thanks to White’s Cross GAA Adult and Juvenile Club members for all their assistance – the work being put in by these two committees in the past couple of years is nothing short of massive.  The outcomes are evident for all to see – the hurling wall was a great addition to our camp this year, while the final stretch of the walkway was laid during day four of camp.  Thanks to Mr Michéal Cremin, principal at Upper Glanmire National School, for his support and also his staff members Joe O Malley and Jane (in the office) for their help and cooperation.  Thanks to Noel Crowley, Games Development Officers with the Cork County Board for all of his time and assistance

Thanks to our guest visitors to the Camp, Kellogg’s Cúl Camp Ambassadors – Cork Senior Hurling captain Pa Cronin and Cork Senior Footballer Damien Cahalane.  Both of these visitors held questions and answers sessions with each of the groups of participants, and obviously obliged with autographs!  Pa told us in his q & a session that his best friend on the Cork team was his club mate Shane O Neill and that he currently wears Adidias Predator boots, and hurls with an O’ Connor hurley.  Damien told those attending that he had played many sports growing up – amongst them rugby.  In a follow-up question he informed us he actually only played two games of rugby but had notched up four tries, giving himself a very decent try per game ratio!  Damien encouraged the boys and girls to play lots of different sports and said that he felt elements from each he had dabbled with now made him a more complete Gaelic player.
