Ulster U10 Indoor Hurling Blitz in Derry
Despite the change in weather, which brought a fall of snow to many parts of Ulster, there was a great turnout of teams for the annual Ulster Under 10 Indoor Hurling Blitz. Once again the event was held at the magnificent Meadowbank Complex in Magherafelt, County Derry.
The event was played on nine pitches and involved 60 teams, which totalled 420 children playing hurling on the day.
Teams came from all parts of the Province but special mention must be made of the squad from Gweedore in west Donegal who ignored traffic warnings of snow to reach the venue and indeed they competed very well throughout the blitz.
This event brings to an end a series of indoor blitzes that were organised throughout Ulster during the winter period for Under 10 and Under 12 children. It will be Go Games from here on, for the children, as the weather improves for the spring and summer period.
