Primary Level Street Leagues Hurling, Football & Camogie @ Bishopstown G.A.A Club As we enter the holiday mode, the Bishopstown GAA Parish Street Leagues which ran over the month of June have come and gone!
Our Primary level mantra of “Having Fun, Making New Friends & Learning New Skills” is very much the heartbeat of our Club underage teams and this philosophy was very much to the fore as we promoted our Gaelic Games in a fun and family orientated environment for all the wonderful boys and girls within our Club.
The Finals day commenced with a parade led by a piper from Westgate with roars of “Bishopstown” to be heard far and wide – apologies for waking a few of the neighbors!
It was a sight to behold with Cúl Maroon balloons and flags unfurled, waving in the wind as the teams and families made their way through Westgate to the Club.
With over 300 boys and girls actively participating, our Street Leagues were action packed with super games across the ages ensuring all our young players (their mums and dads too!) had lots of fun!
Street League medals were presented to all by our Underage Chairman Pio Condon followed by the traditional team photos; it was a day to celebrate Club, Family and Community.
A special mention to our Street Leagues sponsors yet again this year - Herlihy’s Centra in Bishopstown not only provided fruit for everyone at the Street Leagues every Friday evening but also put on a super BBQ on Finals day with Centra management and staff in the Club to feed the hungry hoards!! It was a fantastic spread and greatly appreciated by everyone in the Club. Thank you Centra!!
We are now looking forward to our Registration and Family Fun Day in September! All welcome – see you there.
Have a wonderful Summer from all at Bishopstown GAA Club and remember to practice, practice, practice!
Our Mantra and commitment in the Primary Section of Bishopstown GAA Club is focused on “Having Fun, Making new Friends, Learning new Skills”
