Trinity didn’t field 2 or 3 years back, great that a few veterans came back to resurrect the hurling team

There was a great picture last year of Brian, think it was his Dad as coach, and himself and his young lad Adam playing…

I think of our 3 hurling teams the oldest on the first team would be around 40, oldest on the second team would be around 45-48 and the oldest on the 3rd team would be around 55

Knew I had a picture somewhere of a Young Mr Kennedy…

who did he play for before the Geese? adult hurling is not on the go for decades out that way

In fairness to him, he keeps himself busy with all the GPOing. A great fella. The kids love him.
