Teams debate who won shinty hurling encounter


By Will Clark


GLENURQUHART were left in a state of confusion about if they won or lost their shinty/hurling match in Ireland.

Glenurquhart thought they won the shinty hurling clash in Ireland. But so did Bandon.
Glenurquhart thought they won the shinty hurling clash in Ireland. But so did Bandon.

The Drumnadrochit club claimed they defeated Bandon 31–30 at County Cork last week.

But the Irish side claimed they won the encounter 32–27 and in the end it was decided to declare the match a draw.

Whatever the result, Glenurquhart co-manager Eddie Tembo was satisfied with how the Ireland tour went for his team.

“The whole trip went very well and I am confident that we will reap real benefits from it.

“Already there is talk of the hurlers coming over here next year so that is something to look forward to.”

“Our former player Stuart Reid is a fitness coach with Bandon and that is how the connection was made.

“Everyone enjoyed the weekend – it was something different and after the intensity of the league and cup programme it was a bit light hearted but competitive as well.

“I am confident the whole experience will be beneficial in terms of a team bonding exercise.”
