Le­in­ster U-13 Mini Hurl­ing Feile a re­sound­ing suc­cess

Bray People - - Sport -

LAST SATUR­DAY, Septem­ber 13, was a record-break­ing day for ju­ve­nile hurl­ing in Wick­low.

Seven venues through­out the county proudly played host to a to­tal of 56 hurl­ing clubs from around Le­in­ster and the other prov­inces in an U-13 Mini Hurl­ing Feile.

The event was or­gan­ised and co-or­di­nated by Le­in­ster Hurl­ing De­vel­op­ment Ad­min­is­tra­tor, Michael Neary.

The host clubs were Bray Em­mets; Carnew Em­mets; Glenealy; Ark­low Rocks; Kil­coole; Eire Og Grey­stones and St. Ni­cholas, Dunlavin.

Th­ese clubs put in a huge amount of ef­fort over the last cou­ple of months to en­sure that this project was a fan­tas­tic suc­cess. The glo­ri­ous sun­shine on Satur­day added sig­nif­i­cantly to a won­der­ful day.

It was a joy to see the many colours of the vis­it­ing teams pa­rade their skills, en­thu­si­asm and good sports­man- ship through­out the day. Ev­ery team played four games of hurl­ing and for all the play­ers in­volved this was a great op­por­tu­nity to play against dif­fer­ent op­po­si­tion and styles and to de­velop their hurl­ing skills.

Eight teams par­tic­i­pated at each of the seeded venues. The over­all win­ners were as fol­lows: Divi­sion 1 in Bray - Port­laoise (Laois); Divi­sion 2 in Carnew - Roan­more (Water­ford); Divi­sion 3 in Glenealy - Tramore (Water­ford); Divi­sion 4 in Ark­low - St. Martin’s (Meath); Divi­sion 5 in Kil­coole - Maynooth (Kil­dare); Divi­sion 6 in Grey­stones - Eire Og, Grey­stones; Divi­sion 7 in Dunlavin - Ter­mifeckin (Louth).

Sin­cere grat­i­tude to the seven host clubs; to all the vis­it­ing clubs and par­tic­u­larly to the spon­sors who all con­trib­uted in mak­ing the Mini Hurl­ing Feile a tremendous suc­cess. The spon­sors were Le­in­ster Games De­vel­op­ment; Fiona & Joe Mal­lick Bus Hire Ser­vice, Ti­na­hely; Ea­monn Es­monde, Glenealy; Pat Casey and The Glendalough Ho­tel; The Cop­per Ket­tle, Kil­coole; KC Leisure & Mar­ket­ing Lim­ited, Mullingar and O’Neills Sports­wear.
