It will take place at St. Marys Secondary School Newport Co. Tipperary. Every year each of the provinces hosts a round of the League competition and this year’s Munster leg is being held in Newport and each of the four provinces will have a team taking part. In June this year 12 wheelchair hurlers (3 from each province) represented Ireland at the International Floorball competition competing against 9 other nations. This was a fantastic experience for the wheelchair hurlers.

The Munster team is made up of players from Clare, Limerick and Kerry. Training takes place once a week in Limerick. We would be delighted to have players from Tipperary. If you know of any wheelchair user that might be interested let them know about the event in Newport and they can get further details about Wheelchair hurling from; Gerry McNamara 085 1901900 or Dave Fitzgerald 083 8168143.
