Preparations are well under way for the fourth annual Easter Hurling Festival in Dublin’s south inner city. The Senior All-Ireland (Brian Scott Cup) tournament is the main event in and will be held on Saturday 3rd April 2010. Players, mentors and supporters will be well catered for on the day. A family fun day is also being held which keeps the younger supporters involved in the days activities. The 11 aside format was first used in 2002 as part of our club’s centenary celebrations and reinvigorated in 2007 with the inaugural Brian Scott Cup, which was won by Emeralds (Kilkenny). Glynn-Barntown (Wexford) took the title in 2008 and Lucan Sarsfield’s (Dublin) were the first Dublin club to win the competition in 2009.
The Easter Festival itself is a two day event. There are a number of underage competitions running on Good Friday from under 9 up to minor. Last year’s competitions were attended by GAA President Nicky Brennan who provided plenty of encouragement to the future players and members of the association. Last year’s minor event was very competitive which was won by Saint Rynagh’s (Offaly), beating beat Erins Isle (Dublin) in the final. Entry to all competitions is based on a first come, first served basis which is confirmed on receipt of the entry fee.
