Sciath na Scol 2017 Hurling Campaign


Sciath Na Scol 2017

In January 2017, Mr Horgan mentioned that the hurling team would be starting up soon. The next week we started training. Most of us had never played together before, but it was not hard to adjust. Over the next few weeks, we had more training, and a challenge match versus the Gaelscoil at the tank, which we narrowly won. Then one day Mr Horgan said in training that our first group match vs Midleton CBS was coming up. On the day, we performed well, beating them 7-4 to 2-0. Over the next three matches we narrowly beat the North Mon, hammered St Johns and man trashed Togher. We had topped the group!
For the semi-final we drew St Patricks Bandon. On the day, we were missing our best player, Cian Raymond. It was a hard fought match and their number 13 gave us many problems, but we won by 5 points in the end. We had reached the final!
The final was a great match, but if you want to read it all, got to the final page!

Sciath na Scol Hurling 2017/18

Sciath na Scol is a competition played with Cork primary schools which involves hurling and football from around the city and county.
At the end of February we started our training for our road to success. We started training in the Glen astro turf pitches. We had 24 players on the panel. The training took place on a Tuesday and Thursday from 3 to 4 pm .
Please meet some of our amazing players.Cian Raymond, Oran Ross, Scott Lawler and Kane O'Brien.
We asked two of our players some questions:  Cian Raymond and Kane O' Brien.The questions were who was the joker on the panel and they both said Oran Ross or Scott Lawler.
We asked them who was the hardest man to mark in training and they said Oran Ross or Cian Raymond. Our final question was who is your hurling idol and they both said Joe Canning, who plays with the Galway hurlers.
We would like to thank bainisteoir Mr Damien Horgan and Mr Shane Foley.They were a big help to us in training and matches.
