Our U-14 hurlers had an excellent day out in the Croke Park on Monday last (25/9/16) at the U-14 Super Games. Colaiste Eamann Ris were joined by a number of schools from each province. The players from each school were split up and joined together with other schools, credit must be given to the players for coming together and hurling alongside each other with boys they have never me before. The games were 9- aside and players rotated positions getting an invaluable experience of playing all over Croke Park. The boys got to play 3 matches each and the games ran over a period of two hours.
Players were lucky enough to get to take home a jersey on the day which I am sure they will treasure for ever. It is hoped that this experience will encourage our pupils to keep on playing and enjoying the game of hurling. Perhaps this experience might even inspire some to go on and try to get back to Croke Park again hurling with their club or county.
Colaiste Eamann Ris would like to thank Croke Park for giving us the opportunity to take part in the games and all the parents for collecting the pupils late on Monday evening when they returned.
Feel free to view our gallery from the day. More pictures will be added over the coming days.
