International Students go hurling in the Mardyke

As the national rugby team prepare to meet France at the world cup in a few weeks time, John Grainger was doing his best to introduce a brave group of French students to the game of hurling in the Mardyke yesterday.

Our picture shows the lads taking a quick break during a tough session on the famous pitch.

Hopefully the new hurlers will continue their pursuit of our our national games during their time in UCC.
