U13 Hurlers trip to Breedagh GAC, Belfast

posted 18 Jun 2014, 00:24 by Skerries Harps

The u13 hurlers moved their div 1 Saturday league fixture to Friday the 13th. The omens were against us obviously, as we had a tough run out against one of the best teams in Dublin.

The best way to recover was to hop on a coach the following day and head to Belfast to the science adventure centre that is W5.

On the way we stopped in South East Belfast, on the Ravenhill road, and played against the Breedagh u14 hurlers. Top of division 1, but without 5 of their Down football development players, they still gave us a lesson in tough, fast skill full hurling.

After a good run out for our hurlers, Breedagh invited the boys and our supporting entourage into their newly acquired clubhouse and provided a feast of sambos, cakes and biscuits.

The GAA is an amazing organisation, with its clubs as the bedrock for all that is good about the association. Mile buiochas to the Mams & Dads in Breedagh.

With the marching season in full flow, we had to take a wee detour to W5, and took in the full colour of the season. We alighted the coach, and the boys got to experience the wonderful experience of W5. Fun and games had by all.

Back on the bus, and we speeded down the m1 to catch the 2nd half of the Leinster Hurling Semi Final, between Wexford & Dublin on the new TV home of sky sports! One would have thought that the boys had enough hurling, but they ignored the TV, and played a game of hurling wembo!!!

A big thank you to the Mams who fundraised during the Easter schools hurling & Camogie tournament for our trip.

1 league game left and then we break for the summer after the pj troy tournament on the 5th July.
