Wicklow’s new hurling champions

Eire Og Greystones secured their first ever Intermediate Hurling championship last Sunday and will play in Wicklow’s Senior Hurling Championship next year.

It was not before its time in coming for they have reached this stage of the competition for the last number of years but on each occasion they were denied. Twelve of the team which included minors Seán Hughes, Anto Byrne and James Cranley are homegrown products having come up through the Club’s juvenile ranks. Five of the team were also playing on their Junior team at the start of the year.

Eire Og now go on to represent Wicklow in AIB Leinster Junior Club Hurling Championship where they will play Ringtown of Westmeath at a Westmeath venue on Sunday 20th October.
