Some great results from the county hurlers this year only beaten in 1 game this year & that was after extra time . Some very good young men coming through at under 17 to join these lads at senior over the next 2to 3 years so the future for hurling within the county looks good. Mayo Tyrone playing at a higher level in the League but our lads are showing they can match or outclass any of them . Best wishes for yer semi final guys ye may be a small community in the county but ye have shown what can be achieved when all work together.

I'm ashamed to say that I'll be attending my first Sligo Hurling game this Saturday. Hopefully I don't jinx them. Lol.

Best wishes to all involved.
Sligeach Abu!

Congrats to the team and management on winning Nicky Rackard cup. Clearly something going right and delighted to see the reward for their efforts.

Not to often you see four Sligo hurlers on the HS Hurling team of the week. Well done lads for keeping some pride in the jersey. It can't be over estimated what this team has accomplished. This is a massive massive achievement, well done to ye.

Another win for the county hurlers today Under 20s winning in Roscommon against the Rossies . Me thinks these guys have found a winning formula & have momentum with them Hurling reaping rewards of underage commitment from club coaches

Its been a while since the Rackard cup final, I really enjoyed watching it. We had a lot of pace in the team and always felt the way the players were expressing themselves that we would win it. Lots of great performances. One thing for me stood out though was the performance of our Keeper Burke. He made a mistake for the first Armagh goal and honestly most players would have crumbled but he had 3/4 situations second half where he faced similar high balls and probably harder and dealt with them perfectly and had to. This is the kind of resilience we need more of in Sligo and for me was just as important for the win as O Kelly Lynch superb turn and shot for the 2nd goal.

Great win for the u20s aswell. Congrats to all on the continued improvement.
