All Eyes on Indoor Finals in Cork   25/02/2018


Indoor Hurling and Camogie finals dominate the action in Cork this week.Starting tomorrow and running for four days in Na Piarsaigh Hall, this event just gets bigger and better.


Mark O Driscoll of Sciath na Scol fills us in:

“The Indoor Series caters for girls and boys in 3rd and 4th classes, and provides an opportunity for the children to experience Sciath na Scol action in an indoor setting. The competition is organised in a ‘blitz’ like fashion. This year, the boys and girls in 3rd class took part in local non-competitive blitzes. The 4th class hurling and camogie competitions were graded and then divided into different groups. There are 4 groups in 4th class camogie: Premier, Championship, League and Shield. There are 5 groups in 4th class hurling: Premier, Championship, League, Shield and Plate.

 

Across the different grades, this year again saw a huge number of entries from all across the county. Over 380 teams entered with over 3,750 children pitting their skills against each other throughout the county in the regional groups which were played in January and February. Due to the large volume of entries, we had a total of 70 regional groups. These groups were played in venues such as: Blackrock, Little Island, Ballinacarriga, Donoughmore, Mallow, St. Anthony’s, Cloughduv, Whitechurch, Riverstick, St.Vincents, and Bishopstown. Those teams who did not qualify for the County Finals received a commemorative certificate for their efforts. Each of the regional groups was organised by a local co-ordinating teacher on the day at the venue. I would like to express my gratitude to them for their co-operation and hard work.

The County Finals are taking place this  week in Na Piarsaigh Hurling Hall.

 

With over 24 teams in most grades, it is quite an achievement to qualify for the Finals and I wish all the participants the best of luck.”
