AGHAVILLER COMMUNITY GAMES HURLING 2013
Aghaviller Community Games club is made up of three teams Ballyhale, Carrickshock and Dunnamaggin. First we had to go to the trials and make the team. Then you go and play a blitz in Kilkenny. There are four teams in the blitz. First we beat O’Loughlins then we beat Blacks and Whites and finally we beat James Stephens. On our way to the Leinster title we beat Craanford and Shinrone-Coolderry. Next we were on our way to the All Ireland finals held in Athlone. We did some fundraising for our new kit. We went around our locality selling lines to predict the score for the Cork and Dublin match. We also had a table quiz in Kells to raise money. On the seventeenth and the eighteenth of August the finals were held. In the semi-final we faced Shinrone-Coolderry we came out on top in that match. In the Final we were up against Claregalway and after a thrilling match we were All Ireland champions!!! After celebrating we went for the prize giving. We got our medals (very heavy medals). We celebrated some more and we headed home. It was the happiest moment of our sporting careers. Lets hope we have many more.
