Kellogg Cul Camp Launch/Olympics Skills Competition

By Tomas Brady


O’Mahonys were well represented on the Páírc Tailteann pitch at half time of the final round of the National Football League against Louth.


Ailbhe Leahy, representing St. Paul’s NS, who plays her club football with O’Mahonys was the winner of the girls Olympics Skills competition. Ailbhe was one of the top three girls in the county, following competitions in 30 primary schools for sixth class pupils and earned the right to take part in the final of the competition. Ailbhe came out on top with a highly impressive 36 points. This involved two different drills, the first from 13m out kicking with alternate feet for a minute, where the ball had to cross the goal line without touching the ground. The second drill involved point taking from the 20m line. Again, Ailbhe had to shoot for points for a minute alternating feet. Ailbhe was presented with her shield by Meath GAA Games Manager Dudley Farrell following the competition. Well done Ailbhe!


O’Mahonys also had representatives promoting the Kelloggs Cúl Camps which will be taking place across the county in both hurling and football for the duration of the summer. More details will follow on the time and date of the camp that is taking place in O’Mahonys. Many thanks to Christy Dillon, Sam Formosa, Shane McCarthy and Alannah Brady (L-R in photo).
