The day ended with a 5k walk across the moors as the group reached their finishing point "Kate Kearney's Cottage" in the Gap of Dunloe, before retiring to Killarney for the night.
Academy manager Ian Sherwin commenting after the hike, "This was great for all involved, as the lads had to dig deep and work together in getting through the day. Overall it was a fantastic team building experience and it will no doubt stand to us for the season ahead."
