Great turn out for Centenary Hurlathon

The third annual Hurlathon took place in the Mercy Hall last Saturday with a group of under 8s getting the show on the road at 10am sharp. The action continued non-stop until 10pm that night with the undoubted highlight being the mothers' game. Sincere thanks to our sponsors: BWG foods, Britvic Ireland, Fred Ormston's Mace, Pearse O'Neill and Gaelic Life. Thanks also to Eleanor McCosker of Maggie's for the catering.
