Student Experience



The Hurling club was established in St Marys in 2003, and since then it has enjoyed some notable success. The hurlers have qualified for the All-Ireland Division Three championship weekend for the past 2 years. In 2019 they went one step further and claimed the Fergal Maher Cup in impressive fashion. Within the Ranch, we keep everything light hearted enough, and we're known for placing a serious emphasis on just having the craic. 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'.
