Aontroim v Corcaigh
The club had a really enjoyable day trip to the Antrim v Cork NHL game in Ballycastle on Sun 16/03/14. The U8s & u12s had a mornings hurling against Armoy Glen Rovers. Our thanks to Oirthear Maí for their outstanding hospitality in the heart of Gleann Seisce. It was onwards to Baile an Chaisleáin for the Cork/Antrim clash and the young lads enjoyed meeting some of Ireland's best hurlers before and after the game.
The day before, the U12s took part in the Tyrone Indoor Blitz in MUSA.
The Tyrone U16 Hurling league has been rescheduled to start this Mon night at home to Dún Geanainn. Contact Tommy (07922 277515) for details.

Cycling advice 9 & 10 from 'The Master'
Where did the past 8 weeks go ? How has your training been going ? Are you sort of on target ? Or, are you one of those people who fully intended getting a bike 8 weeks ago but somehow just haven't managed to get it yet ? or worse again, you've got the bike but not the courage to get on it yet ? The time for codding and excuses is over ! You are either up for the challenge or you're not. Make your decision. Whether you have been following your own training plan or closely following the one laid out here each week; at this point you want to be able to cycle 30 miles. Over the past 8 weeks we have been building a foundation. At this point the footings have been built and the concrete poured. Over the next few weeks we will be strengthening this foundation before building towards the 100. This week get out on your bike and do another 30-35 mile run. Do whatever you can to make it enjoyable; stop for coffee; do it in company; avoid main roads; relax and enjoy the scenery.
For some participants the toughest part of the Naomh Colum Cille Cycling Challenge will be putting on the lycra and appearing in front of family and friends for the first time. If you haven't embraced the lycra yet and are still cycling in mixed sports gear then its time to swallow the pill. The advantages of the lycra will outweigh any embarrassment. A proper cycling jersey with 3 back pockets allows you to carry all sorts of things, which with a little practice can be accessed without having to stop. Proper padded cycling shorts on long journeys can prevent the sort of injury that brings a tear to your eye just thinking about it. You should now be feeling fairly comfortable cycling 30-35 miles. This week choose another 30-35 mile route, but plan your route to include a few hills that will stretch your lungs and up your heart rate.
