Hel­mets and hurls bought

€5,000 in­vested in scheme

Bray People - - SPORT - CU­MANN NA MBUN­SCOL Weekly Re­port

Camán and give it a go! A new ini­tia­tive was launched by Al­lianz Cu­mann na mBun­scol Cill Mhan­táin in con­junc­tion with the County GDA coaches whereby €5,000 was spent on 90 hur­leys and 90 hel­mets with the aim of pro­mot­ing and de­vel­op­ing hurl­ing and camogie in the county.

It was de­cided to aim this new ini­tia­tive at sec­ond, third and fourth classes whereby the classes would re­ceive 10 weeks coach­ing us­ing this new equip­ment.

It is hoped that this equip­ment will be used in a min­i­mum of three schools at a time cul­mi­nat­ing in a lo­cal blitz and will be ro­tated from the north/east to the south and to the west of the county.

This was de­cided so the equip­ment is used to its max­i­mum. It is very ex­cit­ing and we hope the Gar­den County will be reap­ing it’s re­wards in the fu­ture.
