Kildare Colleges team

(Oldest Posts First)

Kildare seem to be making good progress at hurling lately. Just wondering how many clubs are they? Also is there any colleges teams? Like a Kildare colleges team?

There are only about 8 Hurling only clubs the rest about 12 are attached to football clubs. I have never heard of a kildare college team in hurling entering a colleges championship.

IF you mean a team that competes in the Harty cup then no but it's a good idea I know Dublin have a Dublin colleges full of lads from different school and they compete against the forces of flannans and st kierans. Third level competitions nuim got to a semi final last year though I would like to see them give scholarships to players from Dublin and Offaly rather than local lads

Everything is revolved around football and not many footballers played hurling this year. I think it's a good idea and I hope they re-discuss it this year
