Mayor Kelly extends his heartfelt congratulations to the Ballygunner Senior Hurling panel, management and backroom team on their fantastic win over Kilkenny’s Ballyhale Shamrocks in the All-Ireland Club Final at Croke Park on Saturday, February 12th.
Mayor Kelly commented that “It is a great achievement to win a county senior hurling title and then the Munster title, but to go on and win an All-Ireland club title is absolutely fantastic. The whole club has done Waterford City and County proud, and we are extremely grateful to you all.”
“It isn’t every day that a player gets to play in a stadium such as Croke Park, and it was a huge honour for all of the Ballygunner team. It must give the whole team and club a great boost to know that they beat Ballyhale, a high-quality team that has dominated the club hurling scene in recent years.”
“I wish everyone connected with Ballygunner Hurling Club the very best for the rest of 2022 and into the future, and again I must congratulate you for representing the City and County so well on a national stage.”
