Their assistants were Gearóid Lucey, Killian Lynch, Brian Corcoran, Evan Casey, Conor Healy, Hugh O’Shea and Anne O’Connell. Food was supplied by Ó Luasa Foodstore, Ballymakeera with sponsorship from Cuisine de France and Denney Meats. Apart from one or two showers the weather was good and sunny for the three days involved. A few weeks earlier a competition took place within the primary schools in Ballyvourney, Cill na Martra, Macroom and
Clondrohid to design a new crest for the club and Elaina Lucey from Carriganimma was the overall winner. A presentation was made by the coaches on behalf of the club on the last day of camp. Elaina was presented with a club jersey, hurley, sliotar and club annual membership certificate. Lots of parents gave up their time to help out at the camp and it was greatly appreciated. The camp was a great success and very enjoyable. Thanks again to everyone involved.
