Munster Championship Hurling

Waterford played the final game of the 2018 Championship last Sunday in Semple stadium. With nothing but pride to play for Waterford did not disappoint, the hurled like the team we are used to seeing. The commitment and fight shown by this group of players who fill any person with pride. At the heart of the Waterford effort was our own Michael ‘Brick’ Walsh who played in his 74th championship game thus breaking the overall record set by Tipperary Brendan Cummins. Michael has been at the heart of Waterford Hurling for the past 15 years and has represented his county and club with the upmost distinction. Stradbally GAA club in very proud of the achievements of Michael Walsh and especially proud of the fact that Stradbally GAA club is now on the record books of the GAA! Congratulations Michael.

These lads put in tremendous effort for the county and deserve all our support this weekend.

Special Day out for a Stradbally U11’s player.

Eimhin Ronayne who plays with our U10’s & 11’s had a magical day out with WLR’s Kieran O’Connor last Sunday in Temple Stadium. Eimhin was given a tour of the Stadium and got to meet both sets of players, he was in the dressing room with the Waterford team and met this hero Michael Walsh before he made his record breaking appearance. Eimhin is a massive GAA supporter and hopes one day to be a GAA commentator after he finishes winning championships with Stradbally first! Stradbally GAA club would like to thank Kieran O’Connor and Gavin Whelan from WLR and the Munster Council for making a young boy’s dream come through.
