Rhode U,10s

Rhode U10 boys participated in the Annual All County Football Blitz on Monday evening 19th June 2017 in O’Connor Park Tullamore.

With a fantastic turnout of 35 players they fielded 2 teams who represented the village with great pride against our close neighbours of Edenderry.

The teams played 2 matches in what can only be described as an excellent exhibition of both footballing skills and gamesmanship.

The management team of Stephen Glennon, Brendan Glennon, Michael Fleming and Peter Glennon were very proud of the boys and would also like to thank the parents for their support.

We also commend Offaly GAA and in particular Keith McGuinness and Liam O’Reilly for hosting a well organised event.

Our best wishes go to Charlie from Edenderry who unfortunately was injured during the game, we hope you have a speedy recovery and we look forward to playing against you again soon.
