Wheelchair Hurling:

Wheelchair hurling is coming to Tipperary on Saturday 14th Sept. It will take place at St Mary’s Secondary School Newport Co Tipperary. Every year each of the provinces hosts a round of the League competition and this years Munster leg is being held in Newport Co Tipperary. Each of the 4 provinces will have a team taking part . The opening ceremony will take place at 10.30a.m with games commencing at 11a.m. 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;

The GAA at Croke Park and Munster GAA are fully supportive of wheelchair hurling and have recognised it as part of the GAA’s Games for all programme.
