UCC Hurling Club President, Dr Paddy Crowley said ‘We are delighted that such an experienced group of sportsmen will be involved with the training and development of a new breed of college hurler this year. Over the years UCC GAA Club has promoted, in both codes, countless numbers of young players and has overseen their sporting progression and development. Sean Og, Tom and the rest of the lads bring a wealth of experience which can only be good for those they will coach. UCC GAA has a philosophy of developing players throughout their time in the University so they can contribute to their clubs and counties long after they have finished playing in the famous Skull & Cross bone jersey.


UCC hurlers last won the Fresher championship in 2013 when a Ger Cunningham coached team completed winning four in a row titles.
