The Mayo GAA Hurling Skills competitions were held in Tooreen recently, with the Feile U14 Skillstar, the U12 skills team challenge and the U10 individual skills competition titles up for grabs.
In the U14 Feile Skillstar competition Luke Connor (Caiseal Gaels ) came out on top closely followed by Kevin Kenneally (Tooreen ) in second place. As Luke Connor will be on duty with his club team Caiseal Gaels at the National Feile na nGael in Ulster in June, runner-up Kevin Kenneally (Tooreen ) will represent Mayo on the National stage. Last year Cormac Phillips (Ballyhaunis ) finished sixth at the National finals.
In the U12 team based skills competition challenge, the Caiseal Gaels quartet of Andrew Roddy, Niall Fleming, Jack Corley and Conor Roddy took the homours closely followed by the Tooreen team consisting of Tom O’Flaherty, Padraic Mooney, Nathan Colleran and Moise Finn. The Caiseal Gaels U12 team now go forward to represent Mayo at the Connacht skills final during the summer.
And finally in the U10 skills competition, Lee Hennigan (Castlebar ) came out of the chasing pack to win the title, closely followed by runner-up Robert OFlaherty (Tooreen ). The Mayo GAA skills competitions were run by the Mayo GAA Coiste Iomana na nOg committee.
