U-9s around the county have an exciting few weekends ahead as the " U-9 Black and Amber" bibs series returns. Each single Club in the county is involved, with 2 clubs heading to a third club who kindly act as "Hosts". Children wear "Black" or "Amber" bibs. All children are guaranteed to play the entire game, mix with new team-mates and hurl away. We would ask all clubs to take photos of their groups and post on their GAA club twitter accounts with the #BlackandAmberdays.
After the "Black and Amber" bib series clubs return to their own club jersey for the remainder of the season.
Best of luck and thanks to all involved.
