Saturday 23rd August saw the U12s play in an 8 Team invitational Hurling Tournament hosted by Fingallians in Swords.There was a Cup and Shield on offer for the 8 tea O Tooles were in Group 2 with our opposition being Dunboyne from Meath , Clane from Kildare and Mount Leinster Rangers from Carlow.Our first game v Dunboyne was mainly one way traffic with O Tooles on top from the beggining and eventually running out convincing winners.We had a break until our 2nd game v Clane.This was a much tighter affair with both teams not giving an inch.Scores were at a premium and it was clear not much would seperate the 2 teams at the end.O Tooles deservedly got over the line by 1 point and we went on to face Mount Leinster Ragers in our final group game.This was a great game to watch with both sides showing an impressive range of skills and determination.O Tooles were behind at the break but showed fantastic attitude to get right back into it in the 2nd half.They carried this attitude right to the final whistle and came out on top by 1 point.We were in the Cup Semi Final having topped our group unbeaten!
