Hosts were happy
While our involvement in the current All-Ireland Senior hurling championship ended in Cork on Sunday week, members of the Glynn-Barntown club are still buzzing after the knockout series was launched at their impressive venue in Killurin recently.
Describing it as 'an incredible honour', a spokesperson said that the distinguished guests in attendance from Croke Park included Ard Stiúrthóir Páraic Duffy.
Six inter-county players attended the event, namely our own Lee Chin, Cork centre-back Mark Ellis, Waterford defender Noel Connors, Galway's Johnny Coen, Seán Curran of Tipperary, and Aaron Cunningham from Clare.
Glynn-Barntown G.A.A. Club Chairman John Cooney welcomed the attendance, while national media correspondent Damian Lawlor headed up the proceedings and individually invited the six county stars to assess various aspects of the All-Ireland hurling championship thus far.
During the event children attending Cúl Camp in Killurin were delighted to avail of the opportunity for photos and autographs with the inter-county stars who were most accommodating towards their young fans. Earlier the entourage had paid a visit to the Irish National Heritage Park in Ferrycarrig for a photo shoot - a venue Glynn-Barntown were delighted to recommend to the visitors.
