It was an incredible honour for Glynn Barntown GAA Club to be chosen to host the launch of the All Ireland Hurling Championship series which took place today Tuesday July 11th. Distinguished guests from Croke Park including Ard Stiúrthóir Pádraic Duffy, players from the six remaining counties in the Hurling Championship -Mark Ellis (Cork), Sean Curran (Tipperary), Noel Connors (Waterford), Aaron Cunningham (Clare), Johnny Coen (Galway), and Wexford’s own Lee Chin and members of local and national media were in attendance from 11am-3pm today as the media launch took place. Children attending Cúl Camp in Killurin were delighted to avail of the opportunity for photos and autographs with the intercounty stars who were most accommodating towards their young fans. Yesterday the entourage paid a visit to local gem ,The Irish National Heritage Park in Ferrycarrig for a photo shoot -a venue we as a club were delighted to recommend to the visitors. Well done to Club Chairman John Cooney and Club Secretary Danny O’ Brien for their work over the past number of weeks in bringing this fantastic event to our club.
