Croke Park hurling activity day

50 young hurlers from Leitrim got to spend last Tuesday visiting and playing in Croke Park. Hurlers from Glencar Manorhamilton, Sean O Heslins, Gortletteragh and St.Marys got to visit Croke Park stadium & museum and thenÓgot to play three 20 min. games on the Croke Park pitch. Our games were against clubs from Mayo and it was great to see that our lads were a match for the Mayo clubs. Great credit is due to the small band of personnel who continue to promote and develop hurling in the County. Well done to all.
