Scenes of joy and delight greeted our hurlers when they returned home on Friday with the Breaga Cup. This much coveted prize was fought over by six schools in the region and it is a keystone in the development of hurling in our primary schools. We beat off strong opposition last year to win the title and, under the tutelage of Mr Arthur, Mr Culligan and Mr Ryan our boys have steadily developed sportsmanship, tactics and especially hurling skills in their quest for glory.
St Patrick's School, Stamullen hosted the matches on Friday in their fantastic GAA pitches. With a 10 am start, it was a long day`s battle with our lads seeing off opposition from all quarters to secure the return of the Breaga Cup to our school.
The past four years have seen the development of great hurling skills in our lads aided and abetted by their parents, our teachers, our local GAA club, St Colmcille's and competitions such as the Breaga Cup. Judging from the skills displayed on the day, hurling in East Meath has a bright future.
