On Wednesday evening last, 22nd July, Abbeyside / Ballinacourty GAA Club hosted the first of our 'Hurling on the Green' sessions in Tournore Park. Over 80 children attended from there and neighbouring estates in what proved to be a very successful event. The aim of the initiative is to go out into the community and introduce Gaelic Games to youngsters in a friendly and fun environment.
The next session takes place on Wednesday evening next, 29th July from 7:00pm to 8:00pm, again in Tournore. All children from 5 to 9 years from all over the parish are invited to attend. Hurleys and helmets will be provided for those who require them.
Many thanks to all the coaches and administrators for helping out on the night. Below is a selection of photographs of the event, kindly provided by Kieran Russell.
