White’s Cross GAA Camogie Blitz

On October the 12th up in White’s Cross Gaa pitch our u8&9 camogie girls held their first blitz against strong opponents Erin’s Own and Passage West. This was the girls second time playing against other clubs , it was a cold morning but neither factor put the girls teams off.

The under 8 panel on the day was Maggie O Shea, Faye O Riordan, Abbey Garde, Isabel Hyde, Jennifer Kelleher, Sarah Keohane,

The White’s Cross girls took a while to get into both games but showed great determination once they started. The pairing of Faye O’ Riordan and Jennifer Kelleher turned out to be a great one as the girls worked well together in the back line and also when they moved up to the forward line Faye O’ Riordain scored 2 goals which lifted all the girl’s spirits.

Maggie O’ Shea and Abbey Garde were paired in midfield and in the back line. Abbey worked hard throughout the game, stopping the ball in full flow and passing it well back to Maggie and down to the forwards. The girls were outstanding at all times and defended the back line very well.

Sarah Keohane and Isabel Hyde were another great pairing and showed great skill passing the ball to each and moving it up the field. The girls really worked well together. The girls showed great skill with their blocking and their pull on the sliothars. There were many near scores by the pair.

Our U9 panel consisted of Bobbie O Connell, Courtney McCormack, Jessie Murphy, Penny Cronin, Lily O Riordan, Cliodhna Millard,, Rebecca Kelleher, Jill Casey, Chloe Gaffney,

Again White’s Cross U9’s girls were up against 2 experienced sides. White’s Cross really put it up to both teams showing them what they could do.
Penny Cronin was in goal and did a brilliant job blocking incoming goals. Penny’s long pucks were instrumental in getting the sliothar down the field.
Penny was helped on the back line by Bobbie, Chloe and Courtney who blocked alot of ball and worked well together. The girl’s skills have improved and this was evident in their ability to pull on the sliothar and their pucks on the ball. Cliodhna, Rebecca and Jill played excellently in midfield and did their best to stop the ball and hit it back down the field. They worked well as a team and covered the midfield ground very well between them. A few of our girls even showed off their ability “to do the roll and jab” on occasssions throughout the match.
Lily & Jessie played excellently in the forward line. Again these girls worked great together as they passed the ball to each to get those vital scores. Both opponents’ goalies were strong so the girls were up against it in both match but they carried on regardless taking every chance they could.

The Whites Cross Girls are to be commended on their efforts on the on the day; they showed great skill and improvement since their last competitive match.

Again a big thank you goes to the Girls coaches Marion Delaney and Catherine Monaghan and to all those who helped out on the day. Also a special thanks goes to all the parents who provided tea and sandwiches etc. to the visiting teams after the games, it was much appreciated and a great day was had by all.

White’s Cross G.A.A Townlands

What’s in a name? Well in Ireland, when it’s the name of where you live, there’s often a lot of information in it. The majority of Irish placenames are Anglicised versions of old Irish names; that is, adaptations of the old Irish language to English sounds and spellings, Baile becomes Bally, Pearsún becomes Parson, etc. Understanding the Irish meaning of where you live can reveal a lot of the area’s history.
