GAA NEWS: Road Hurling tournament.; On Monday last in almost perfect weather, we had twenty teams compete in the second annual Pallasgreen road hurling tournament, from Old Pallas, through Nicker down to the field in Pallasgreen. A tight contest was enjoyed by all, and with the teams coming home in pairs everybody was waiting to see who would manage the course in the fewest pucks.
The competition was won by a young team comprising of Shane Murphy, Colin Ryan (M) and Brian McCarthy who managed the course in an amazing 26 shots. Congratulations to the boys and all the teams who took part. A special thanks goes to all the club members who participated as course stewards, without their effort the tournament wouldn’t be possible.
