Future Hurling Stars put on Show in Bray Emmets


Skill levels were through the roof in a sun kissed Bray Emmets as 8 teams took part in the Cumann na mBunscol hurling blitz last Thursday. There were goals and points galore as some of Wicklow's finest young hurlers put on a show for the lucky spectators that were there to witness it. The schools represented included St. Cronan's, St. Laurence's, Greystones Community National School, Gaelscoil na Clocha Liath, St. Patricks (Wicklow Town), Kilcoole N.S and Scoil Chualann. There were some great contests with each team getting 5 matches each. The enthusiasm for hurling was just as evident from the teachers as it was from the children who deserve great credit for turning teams out on the day. Relationships between the schools participating were enhanced with future matches being arranged across different class levels. 

Thanks to Willie Braine and his team of young whistlers who did a fantastic job in organising the pitches and officiating the games. 

We look forward to full programme of hurling in Wicklow primary schools for the coming 2022/23 academic year.
