A New venture for Rackard League with introduction Of Regional Hurling Squads

2018 saw the introduction of a new venture, “Regional Hurling Squads” by Rackard League Committee. Primary schools were invited to nominate 2/3 sixth class players to partake in squads. The squads, which were divided into 6 regions, received training on Mondays after school over the winter months. Training took place in various indoor venues throughout the county. The squads are now taking part in blitzes each Monday over the next few weeks with 3 regions playing in each venue. Prior to the blitz in Blackwater today, Angela Mc Cormack, Vice Chairperson of Coiste na nÓg, presented a cheque for 2,000 euro to Kevin Waters, Rackard League Chairperson, to assist in the financing of this very worthwhile venture. The committee hope to extend this initiative next year to include football.”
