CROTTA COISTE NA NOG MENTORS
With the Coiste na nÓg season over for 2017, we would like to thank all our mentors who put in a huge amount of their time and dedication on a voluntary level to help the club have such a good season at Coiste na nÓg level.
Hurleys were broke, matches were won and lost, all the while our mentors kept the “show on the go” encouraging our players to become better hurlers.
Without our mentors we would not be in such a good place at under age level and as a club we are grateful for their commitment.
