BANTRY’S  U10 hurlers took part in the Monster Blitz in Ahamilla, Clonakilty on Saturday last.

This event had eighteen teams present and was organised by the Carbery Beara GAA Games Development.


In the first game Blues faced St Colums (2) and played very well to earn a seven point win.

They were up against a strong Gabriel’s in the second game and found the going tough in the first half.

With a few positional changes for the second, Bantry matched their opponents and lost by a few points in the end.



The third game proved to be a very close affair against Leap.

Bantry scored three goals in this match and some great points, and were just a goal behind at the final whistle.

This was a great day out for the young hurlers of Bantry Blues.

The team did very well with Conor Hanley in goals and Jayce Cronin, Jack O’Sullivan and James Collins in defence.



Midfield was made up of cousins Dara and Dylan McCarthy and up front we had James Crowley, Eoin McCarthy and the Wiseman brothers Ted and Oran.

There was some great free taking on show from Dylan McCarthy who scored six points and Dara McCarthy who hit three.



Goal of the day had to go to Ted Wiseman with a great over head pull.

Overall a great day out for this team.



The clubs minor footballers bowed out of the championship on Thursday evening, August 23rd when they lost to Boherbue in Macroom.

Bantry were a point behind at half time in a tight game, but it was Boherbue who pushed on to win by a margin of eleven points to eight in the end.
