Entries are very slow to come in this year in comparison to previous years and I feel there are still some schools who have not submitted entries. No entries can be accepted after this Thursday as I need to do up a fixtures list to ensure all runs smoothly.
I’ll e mail fixtures list to you all on Thursday night.
Any further entries should be sent ASAP to brendandonn@gmail.com

Meet our hurling heroes – great opportunity for schools! @adrianhession @mayohurling @mayogaa

 Teachers,

Last summer the Mayo Senior Hurlers won the All-Ireland Nicky Rackard Cup in Croke Park. Twenty-two of the players involved came through the Mayo Cuman na mBunscol system.

Over the past two months, I have visited about 30 schools with the Cup to help promote hurling at Cuman na mBunscoil level within Mayo. The response has been excellent from teachers and children. The visit includes the following:

  • Introduction and brief talk about hurling.
  • Six minute video clip of the Rackard Cup final (off USB).
  • Each child raises the big cup and photo opportunity.
  • Questions and answers session with a player (if available).
  • Information on how to start playing hurling.

It takes about 40 minutes to do. If your school is interested in a visit, please ring me on 087-2450566 or email Adrian.hession.gpo.mayo@gaa.ie and I will try line your school up for a visit over the coming weeks.

Regards.
