Ryan wants to be a Tipperary hurler and a farmer when he's older

The Grangemockler/Ballyneale U7s team had their first games of hurling and football on Saturday last

Juvenile GAA Club
It’s an extremely busy time for all of our underage teams at the moment. From U-11, U-13, U-15 and U-17 all competing in their respective competitions. It is great to see so many players out playing Hurling and Football again. 
Our U-7s had their first games of hurling and football on Saturday last against St. Patrick’s from Drangan/Cloneen. The kids played extremely well and we are all very proud of them.
Our U-9s have had a busy few weeks also with our latest game was against Cahir in Cahir on Thursday. Our girls and boys put on a great display of Hurling with two really competitive games.
The U-7, U-9, U-11 and U-13 groups train in Grangemockler at 7pm. Hurling every Monday and football every Wednesday.  New members are always welcome.
We would like to thank all the volunteers in the Juvenile Club. Committee members, coaches, mentors and covid officers. Without you all giving up your time there would be no Club. Your time and effort doesn't go unnoticed.
