Over the past numbers of days, Monaghan Coaching & Games organised a 1st & 2nd class Halloween Primary School blitzes. These blitzes were open to boys and girls, and were held over two days at Monaghan GAA Entreka Centre of Excellence.
Schools who attended were; Killeevan NS, Carrickmacross Boys NS, Gael Scoil Lorgan, Leitrim NS, Blackstaff NS, Doohamlet NS, St Josephs Knockatallon NS, Oram NS, Gaelscoil Eois, Corcaghan NS, St Patricks Broomfield NS, Scoil Mhuire Rockcorry NS, Latton NS, Scoil Padriag Corduff, Monaghan Model NS, St Marys Monaghan BNS, Annyalla NS, Drumgossat NS, Knockconan NS, Mullaghrafferty NS, Loughmourne NS, Gael Scoil Ultain, Tydavnet, Aughnafarcon NS, Ballynagearn NS & Lattnamard NS. 26 Schools attended the blitzes over both days, with 750 boys & girls taking part.
Each School entered multiple teams & each team played a minimum of 5 matches, with the Go Games playing format being applied throughout the two days. We had 12 pitches in operation at any given time, with 2 periods of 7 minutes playing time per match.
We would like to thank the teachers and assistants who took their students to the blitz. Also a big thank you to the TY referees from both Castleblayney College, St Louis Girls Secondary School Carrick, St Macartan’s College and Our Lady’s Secondary School who officiated on both days. Thanks to all the schools who took part and who made the blitz a huge success.
We hope over the coming months to have other class groups at blitzes in Cloghan. See below a selection of photos from both days…
