Celebrating the wedding of Mr. Sean Martyn and Ms. Shannon Farrelly in Galway

Jul. 14, 2019 • Brian Bland

On July 13, 2019 one of Charleston Hurling Club’s favorite members got married in Galway City.  Shannon Farrelly played with Charleston from 2016. She was a huge part of the early successes of the club and it was a tremendous loss when she decided to leave us to take a great job in NYC. But we are ultimately glad that she did because that’s where she met the love of her life, the Liberty Gaels camogie club………just kidding.

2019 Gov. Thomas Burke Tournament Recap

Jun. 24, 2019 • Andrew Maron

Fresh from a tournament victory in Greenville, we were eager to jump back into some competitive hurling. We spent the 4 weeks in between tournaments further developing our skills and endurance, playing Stick-Toss games without any substitutions and introducing cardio-focused Overtime Sessions. When the tournament schedule was announced, we were excited to see our old rivals, and 2018 Junior C National Champions, Coastal Virginia (formerly Hampton Roads), hoping for an opportunity to play for the first time since they won the Holy City Cup in 2017. We were also expecting Raleigh to be a much more difficult match-up playing on their home fields than when we met at Greenville. While we managed to put together one of the strongest travel teams that we have fielded in recent years, this would be our first 13s tournament on a nearly full sized pitch. With only 3 extra players, we knew that we were leaving ourselves vulnerable in the event of an injury or exhaustion.
