On Saturday the 23rd of August the Under 12 and under 13 girls, some younger members and their mentors had a great day at Footgolf.
Footgolf follows much of the same rules as normal golf. The first shot is taken from the tee.
To get the ball in the hole, the trees, hills and bunkers have to be avoided, the first player to finish all the holes with the fewest shots wins.
Everyone throughly enjoyed themselves.
Sources say it was a rare sight seeing Eamonn Fitz ''trying'' to kick a football...
Stick to the hurling Eamonn.
Erins Isle 3:16 – 0:6 Good Counsel Sunday Aug 24th
The quarter-final of the hurling championship saw Counsel go crashing out at the hands of the U15 boys, with one to fifteen performing strongly and the subs having a big impact on the course of the game.
Counsel started strongly going three points up with no reply but Isles soon got into their stride and went in at half time six points up with Luke Nugent netting the only goal of the first half. The second half once again saw Counsel surge out of the blocks but the Isles boys withstood the pressure and went on to win comfortably with goals from Jamie Perry and Nicholas King.
The boys will face Round Towers of Lusk in the semi-final on the 7th of September.
Erins Isle team: James Keoghan, Thomas Fox, Scott Shanahan, Shane Doyle, Aaron Thompson, Jamie Perry, Nathan Dwyer, Jack Grafton, Neil Matthews, Jake Faye, Nicholas King, Darragh Martin, Conall O’Toole, Luke Nugent, Connor Berigan
