The Castle Arms Hotel, Durrow was the venue recently for the presentation of medals to The Harps Gaels Minor Hurlers.
A large and appreciative crowd turned out to support the young hurlers who won this year’s Minor ‘A’ Championship with some inspirational performances, not least the displays in both the drawn final and the replay.
Congratulations were extended to Ronan Delahunty for winning the coveted Minor Hurler of the Year award and to Richie Saunders for winning the Man of the Match award in the final.
Laois legend Pat Critchley was guest speaker on the night and he spoke passionately about the bright future of Laois hurling and how The Harps Gaels have a part to play in this future.
For the present however, both the club and area are extremely proud of these fine young hurlers. The Club would like to thank the hotel staff for putting on a fine spread and ensuring that everything ran smoothly on the night.
