Tullykyne complete historic win

Post date: Mar 11, 2013 7:17:49 PM

The finals of a regional schools 7 a-side competition, organised by Cumann na mBunscoil took place in Baile Doite on Friday 8th March. All the Máigh Cuilinn schools competed along with Gaeilscoil Mhic Amhlaigh, Bushypark, Bearna and several others. After matches against Máigh Cuilinn, Bearna & Bushypark, Tullykyne met Baile Nua in the final and came out on top. We stand to be corrected but this is the first time Tullykyne school have come out on top in hurling.

Tullykyne came through a group featuring Scoil Mhuire, Bushypark and Bearna while Baile Nua had a tougher route in a 5 team group with Tuairíní, Gaelscoil Mhic Amhlaigh, Boleybeg and St Patrick's, Market Street.

We don't have the full details of the team but we heard Cian Folan, Sophian Elehmer, Cian Deane and Evan Kenny were in the mix and of course principal, Chris O'Neill was doing his best Brian Cody impression.

Please tell us more!
