Celebrating Galway's 2017 All-Ireland Win

Visit to Abbey National School

Frances Holohan

There was great rejoicing in St Feichin’s National School, Abbey in September 2017 when local members of the winning panel of players visited the School with the Liam McCarthy Cup – Seniors,  and the Irish Press Cup won by the Minors.  It was the first time that Galway won both the Senior and Minor hurling championships on the one day and so it was no wonder that these young followers were so delighted to have a visit from their hurling heroes.

Children of Abbey National School welcome their Senior Hurling Heroes – Shane Moloney, Padraig Brehony and Paul Killeen.  Also the Minor Hurling Heroes – Brendan Lynch, Ben Moran and David Jordan.  Photo courtesy Seán Holohan
