Borris-Kilcotton all set to host unique Road Hurling tournament this Sunday

Umpire PJ Scully keeps an eye on Laois hurling legend Pat Delaney during last year's competition.

The famous hurler on the ditch will get the chance to climb down and hurl on the road this weekend, as Borris-Kilcotton host their annual Road Hurling Tournament.

The unique event will get under way at 3pm from Killasmeestia church, and is the only tournament of its kind held in Laois.

Teams of three will have to navigate their way along a 5km course over the roads of the area, and there will be competitions for Senior Men, Senior Ladies, U-16 Boys and Girls, as well as a Masters category.

A team of three costs just €30, and there are trophies up for grabs for the winners in each category.

If all that wasn't enough, there will be a cabaret and presentation night in the Green Roads that night, along with a BBQ, and tickets for that are just €5.

There will also be plenty of fun and games for children during the competition in the field opposite the church, so for a unique competition and spectacle, be sure to get yourself down to Killasmeestia this Sunday.

For those planning on competing, contact Trevor Moore on 087-7562890. The event is sponsored by Drennan Meats and Holland Hurls.
