Allianz Sciath na Scol Carrigdhoun
4th Class Indoor Hurling and Camogie Finals 2017
The annual Allianz Sciath na Scol Carrigdhoun Indoor Hurling/Camogie Finals took place last Friday 10th February in Riverstick. Due to the popularity of this competition in the region, schools are divided into two groups in both Hurling and Camogie based on size and experience. A number of preliminary blitz days are hosted in the same venue in January, with close to 30 schools taking part.
The overall three week tournament culminated last Friday with the following semi-finals taking place;
Roinn B Semifinals Shanbally v Gaelscoil Chionntsaile (Winners) Dunderrow (Runners-Up) v Naomh Eltin
Roinn A Semifinal Gaelscoil Charrig Ui Leighin v Ballygarvan (Winners) – winners play Belgooly (Runners-Up)
Roinn B semifinals Goggins Hill v Summercove (Runners-Up) Crosshaven (Winners) v Castlelack
Roinn A semifinals Gaelscoil Charrig Uí Leighin V Ballinadee (Runners-Up) Ballygarvan (Winners) V Knockavilla
Sincere thanks to all the pupils/parents, teachers and schools who took part this year. It's a fantastic initiative which invites all the schools to promote our games during a traditional quiet time. This tournament is an extension of our indoor schedule which takes place before the Christmas holidays.
Thank you to Helen O'Callagan (Dunderrow NS), Catherine Murphy (Belgooly NS), Paddy Clifford (Shanbally NS) and Diarmuid Murphy (Monkstown NS) for organising such a wonderful series of activities for Primary Schools in the region. Please note that there are also Hurling/Camogie Blitzes taking place in May.
