Tonight’s half-time exhibition game sees some of Mayo’s finest young hurlers and footballers given the opportunity to display their skills in front of a large crowd on the hallowed turf of Elverys’ McHale Park. Children from Craggagh NS, Balla NS, Straide NS and Ballyvary NS will showcase their footballing skills while the children of Aghamore NS, Tooreen NS, Scoil Phádraig and Carrowholly NS will take part in the hurling exhibition.

This exhibition is being run in conjunction with the “Give Respect, Get Respect” initiative. Cumann na mBunscol would like to acknowledge the fantastic support given by the Mayo GAA coaches in the running of all our activities and exhibitions, especially Games Manager, Billy McNicholas and Hurling Development Officer, Adrian Hession.
