Student Experience

 

 

The Hurling Club was established in St Mary’s in 2003, and since then, it has enjoyed some notable success. In 2009, the club won the All-Ireland Division Three League and Championship and since then, we have been trying to build on this achievement. In 2010 and 2011 the club held their own in the Division 2 League and Championship but with little return. In 2012, however, the club entered its most recent upward curve, reaching the final of the Division 2 All-Ireland League, losing to Queen's having beaten them in the group stages weeks before. In 2013, the club qualified for the All-Ireland Division Three Championship Final in Galway, hoping to repeat the success of 2009. This year we will be hoping to go one stage further to bring some silverware back to the College. If you've held a hurl before (or even if you haven't) and want to get to know others with similar interests, then come on ahead and join.

Best thing about this Club:"Whilst coming to University is an exciting time for everyone, it can be an intimidating time, too. I was apprehensive about going to University, but after I signed up to the hurling club, I became part of the group and through the trainings, matches and nights out, I soon realised St Mary’s is a great place with great students."
Main Activities / Fixtures:No current fixtures
Social Activities:Team nights out are organised throughout the first semester following all group games. They're a fantastic way to start off the year and get to know everyone. An annual fundraiser is normally held in January/February in the lead-up to championship. These have previously involved fight nights and the ITV spin-off 'I'm a Rancher Get Me Outta Here'.
