Junior Tour 2018

Many thanks to Cliodhna Donaghy for her account of the Junior Trip.  I would especially like to thank, on behalf of the Junior Squad, Toni O’Donovan and her family.  Without whom this trip would not have happened, and who’s dedication to the cause went above and beyond the call of duty.

Saturday 21st July was the beginning of the 2018 O Tour, as around 30 juniors and their families (from all over Ireland) made their way to Les Plans d’Hotonnes, a tiny village located high up in the Jura mountains. We settled into our gites, and then the 60 or so of us met up for dinner at the largest gite. A few card games later we headed off to bed for the nine o’clock start in the morning.
