Ulster GAA and the Irish FA have welcomed the Department of Education's decision to extend funding for the award-winning Curriculum Sports Programme until 31 October 2018 as good news for schools that promote sport as part of a healthy lifestyle.
"It's certainly not the way any person involved in hurling wants to see a match finish, taking 65s like that. It's not the way to finish a game but it is what it is and we can't control it. Ideally, you'd like to go out at it again but it's just not to be and that's it."
"It's the biggest result we have had to date. Will it count for much next July? Probably not. We are out of 1B which I am delighted for. Particularly for the players - it is an important step in their development."
Limerick hurlers defeated Clare in the first televised free taking competition. Are you in favour of deciding a game this way?
