Day one included competitive action at Bruff GAA Club in Limerick. It rained hard...and the boys hurled hard. No amount of rain ( and there was a deluge) was going to dampen the spirits of this weekend. Hot showers, soup & sandwiches afterwards provided by the hosts would make sure of that. Back on the bus then on to Ventry - training camp for the weekend - where the Ban an Ti had the dinner waiting. Bags in the rooms, wolf down the dinner and off to Ventry Strand for a refreshing dip in the Atlantic Ocean. No problem sleeping tonight so as an early start was due for Day 2

Time to relax, off to Inch Beach for a little bit of surfing...some chips and a little bit more surfing. Back to the Ban an Ti for another mighty feed and end the day with a dip in the ocean at Ventry Strand before lights out and an opportnity for the travelling support to gather in the local 'eaterie' and talk about the boys efforts on the field of play.
Day 3 got off with another big Ban an Ti breakfast before boys and supporters were treated to a trip around Dingle Bay accompanied by local hero Funghi... who danced them a merry dance around the rugged coastline. A spot of lunch at Paidi O'Sheas before heading back to St. John's Park. Not before one final call to the women who looked after them and say thanks.. Ban an Ti Catilin agas Ban an Ti Marian. Brilliant ladies both of them
Well done to all involved for looking after our young Gaels. It was a great trip and one they'll remember forever..
