Best of luck Conor!

All Ireland Minor Hurling Final

Herbertstown NS would like to wish past pupil Conor O’Grady and the Limerick minor hurling team the best of luck in the All Ireland minor hurling final against neighbours Tipperary.


Conor captained the school to a south title during his time in Herbertstown NS and visited the school last year to promote Gaelic Games. He bids to become the first player from Herbertstown to collect an All Ireland minor hurling medal since J.J. Bresnan in 1958. Bresnan played at full back on that Limerick team which defeated Galway.


Young Whistler in Croke Park

Herbertstown NS were represented in Croke Park on Sunday last by Adam who was the ‘Young Whistler’ on duty for the INTO Cumann na mBunscol GAA Respect Exhibition Go Games.  Well done Adam!


The exhibition game took place during half time in the All Ireland minor hurling semi-final between Limerick and Dublin. Limerick, who have Herbertstown NS past pupil Conor O’Grady in their panel, emerged victorious and will now compete in the final in September.
