Tom Walsh Memorial Blitz

Share Button


Congratulations to our 1st year hurlers and their coaches Mr Kennealy and Mr Joyce on winning today’s blitz.  Conditions in the morning were difficult for hurling but some hard fought entertaining games resulted in Good Counsel College facing St. Kierans College in the Final.

A close fought contest turned on a great goal from Cian Byrne, named as player of the tournament, with 5 minutes remaining.

Dylan Whelan collected the Tom Walsh Cup on behalf of his team mates from former pupil Thomas O’Connor who has just signed a new professional contract with Southampton FC.

Huge thanks goes to Mr L O’Brien, Mr D Wall and Mr PJ Walsh along with the TY and 5th years for organising a wonderful event.  Shane O’Hanlon from Wexford and Leinster GAA presented the Player of the Tournament award to Cian and O’Neill’s Sliotars to each player on the winning GCC team.
