Saturday was the highlight of the Gaelic4Mothers and Others football calendar when 1000 plus mums and others desended on the Naomh Mearnog GAA Club Portmarnock for the annual National Blitz Day.

Saval's group
 contained An Charraig Mhor (Tyrone),Clonakilty (Cork), Fethard (Tipperary), St Finnians (Dublin) and Clann Eireann (Armagh). .Our team played well in each of the 5 games with some exceptional individual performances.
Saval team: Aisling Crawley, Mary Crozier, Clare Cull, Una Downey, Sheelagh Duggan, Imelda Fearon, Theresa Fearon, Cecilia Kerr, Phyllis Lennon, Andrea Magee, Moira McEvoy, Bernie McParland, Jenny O'Hagan and Rosaleen Travers

After the Blitz the team made their way to the Carrickdale Hotel where tables were reserved. After the meal Imelda presented manager Anthony with an anniversary cake with Simple the Best along with team photo emblazed on it .Imelda also presented every player with a memento of the occasion. Then it was back to the club for the after party to finish off what was a perfect day.

This year we had a new player with us who goes by the name of Grainne. She is the brain child of Imelda and her features reflects that of some of our players. I will let you match them up!!! Grainne stayed out all night last Saturday. She was last seen propping up the bar in Saval Club at the after party. We are not sure where she ended up. If found please return.

Loads to thank for the day; Ladies GAA for a well organised Blitz, Host Club Naomh Mearnog GAA Club for the use of their excellent facilities, Carrickdale Hotel for the hospitality. MD Coaches and driver Eugene for the transport, our club Saval for their continued support and last but not least Imelda Fearon for the personal touches that made day that more special.

The G4Mothers season has come to an end however the mums have decided to continue with the training/coaching for a few more weeks .Training as usual every Thursday 6-30pm to 8-00pm.
