Sallins Retain Hurling Title

Tuesday 25th October 2022


It was all on the line! The St. Laurence’s boys hurling team made up of mainly 6th class and some 5th class got on the bus and headed for Hawkfield where the schools division II final was taking place.

When we got to the pitch the coaches Mr Kennedy and Ms Norton gave us the jerseys and named the starting 15.

We had already won two matches to get to this moment and we wanted to remain as Division 2 champions, a title we won last season.


The match against Scoil Ui Riada, Kilcock started and after 10 minutes St. Laurence’s were losing. But, we found our winning formula and started to put points on the board. We had a comfortable lead at half time and our coaches got us into a huddle and our coaches, captain and vice-captain said a few words. We made a few changes and we drove through the second half scoring even more.


When the final whistle blew we were delighted. The final score was 3-9 to 0-4 in favour of Sallins. After we shook hands with the opposing team’s players, an official from the county board congratulated both teams and he called our captain up to him. Our captain thanked the fans, coaches and players from both sides and raised the trophy into the air and that was when the celebrations started. We all got to hold the trophy and we enjoyed the ride home as champions.

Special thanks to our coaches Mr Kennedy and Ms Norton and all the travelling fans.
