Senior Hurling

October 16, 2018

Our Senior Hurlers got off to a winning start on Tuesday 9th October, in their first game of the year against Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh.

The sides were level going in at half-time but Desmond College were deserving winners at the full-time whistle with a final score of 3-8 to 2-3.

Many thanks to TY student, Megan, who is doing a photography module as part of her Gaisce award and took fantastic photos at the match.

Congratulations to all involved!
