Colleges Hurling 2018/19


#1

First final of the school year next Tuesday in Abbottown. Ardscoil vs Colaiste Eoin in the U/16. Should be a tight one. We drew with Fintans in the league while they beat them in the semi by a point after extra time. Worth a look if you have nothing else on.


#2

Fintan’s of Sutton? What clubs would have players there.


#3

Mostly Raheny and Barrog.


#4

Didn’t think it was a posh-enough school for Raheny players.


#5

Gar O’Driscoll from mearnog is teaching out in Fintan’s and is doing some absolutely Trojan work for Hurling out there.


#6

Leinster gaa website used to have all the scores from schools matches, but doesn’t seem to have been updated in a while. There’s been a few results in their twitter feed, but not much. Any idea Alan where second level results can be viewed these days?


#7

What time is throw-in at ?


#8

1 p.m.


#9

No idea unfortunately. If Leinster is not putting them up then I don’t know of any other site that does.


#10

Gar is a great lad. Top class. Fintans is coming along nicely.


#11

You’d be hard pushed to find a man more passionate about the Irish language and hurling, was lucky enough to have him coach me through juvenile with mearnog!


#12

Thought Jackie Hughes managed you…


#13

Yeh, at junior, still helps out with our clubs junior team. Gar at juvenile.


#14

He’s a true Gent. Managed me in school.


#15

Were you troublesome?


#16

Funny enough never had him as a teacher, yet always got off classes cause I played hurling. He always had time for lads from Seachtar Laoch in Ballymun as he knew we only played hurling. I remember he had us playing minor when we were in 1st year.


#17

Rís by two.


#18

Good game?


#19

Wasn’t at it. Should be a report in Thursday’s Herald.


#20

Ard Scoil Ris 5-7, Colaiste Eoin 2-13. Ard Scoil trailed by 7 in the 1st half and by 3 at HT. It certainly was a case of goals win games. A very stiff cross field wind and a fast astro surface made for some scrappy play at times.
