Sinn Féin’s McLellan congratulates All-Ireland hurling champions

4 September, 2011

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Arts, Heritage, Tourism and Sport, Sandra McLellan, has congratulated today’s All-Ireland winning hurlers from Kilkenny and Galway.

Speaking after watching the two finals the Cork East TD said:

“I want to extend my congratulations to the victorious Kilkenny senior and Galway minor hurling teams on their success today.

“Kilkenny’s achievement is remarkable. To come back after last year’s defeat to win their thirty-third title in such an intense display is a fantastic result for Brian Cody and his team. Eight All-Ireland winners medals for Shefflin, Brennan, Hickey, and Cody himself as manager, speaks volumes about the quality of this Kilkenny team over the last decade and more.”

“Likewise for Mattie Murphy’s charges in Galway. The success of underage hurling under Mattie’s tutelage continues unabated.” ENDS
