G.A.A. Hurling “Street” League: We are running off a hurling “street” league for four of the next five Sundays (exception is the May Bank Holiday) for boys & girls in Senior Infants to 3rd Class. Split into two leagues, one for senior infants/1st class and a second league for 2nd class/3rd class. If your child is interested in joining a team please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible as we need to try and create teams of even ability as much as possible. Senior infants/1st class games will run from 5.30pm (15mins aside) 2nd class/3rd class games will run from 6.15pm (15mins aside). Key element of league is participation and fun!! Also please let us know if you’d like to help out with one of the league teams. All help is most welcome!
