Well done to the U12 hurlers who trav­elled to Wex­ford last Fri­day night to take part in the Castle­town In­door Hurl­ing tour­na­ment.

The lads were un­lucky to lose 3-1 to the hosts in the open­ing game but fol­lowed this up with an ex­cel­lent 3-1 win over Craan­ford be­fore draw­ing 4-4 with Glynn Barn­town in what was the game of the night.

Great to see a Wicklow hurl­ing team com­pet­ing so strongly against its Wex­ford coun­ter­parts. Keep up the good work lads! The panel on the night was Sam Cul­leton, Rory Hen­nessy, Bill O’Brien, Matt Glee­son, Billy Joe Con­nors, Jim Stafford, Tom Phe­lan, Harry Tobin Kelly, Calum Doyle, De­nis O’Brien, Johnno Moore­house and Fionn Greene. The team is back down in Castle­town in two weeks’ time for round 2 of the tour­na­ment.
