Our U-16.5 hurling team made the journey to Knockavilla Kickhams GAA grounds last week to play their first competitive match in this year’s Munster Cup. The opposition on the day were a fancied Limerick CBS side. While both sides approached the early stages tentatively, a flurry of early scores settled our side and seemed to instill a sense of confidence in them. Conditions on the day were conducive for hurling, and once Coláiste Mhuire got into a rhythm the outcome looked inevitable by half time. Some excellent performances were delivered by Luke Galvin, Seán Ryan, Pádraig Gleeson, Conor Ryan, Éamon Ryan, Aaron Delaney, Pádraig Loughnane and man of the match Martin Reilly who finished the game with a personal tally of 4-04. Well done also to management Mr. O’Sullivan and Mr. Fanning on their comprehensive victory.
Primary Hurling Tournament
Well done to all involved in the running of the 5th & 6th class hurling tournament held last week in the Dome.

Special thanks also to Transition year students who were central in co-ordinating this event.
