Our under 12’s travelled to An Riocht (just outside Kilkeel in Co Down) for their annual 9 a side tournament on Saturday 16th May.
We were very unlucky in two of group games were we narrowly lost by a point in one game and three points in the other. However, the boys did enough to qualify out of the group for the shield quarter final. In this game the luck was against us again. We played Longstone from Down and only lost by one point.
The boys that travelled in fairness gave it everything and can be very proud of their efforts. What they should take from the experience is how much more we have to do to get to the same level as Burren that won out the cup competition. But we will get there.
