Galway N.S. Finals 2019

The schools finals this year was held again in the Ardilaun Hotel. One significant change from previous years .. the number of players on each team increased from 4 to 8 players. This was a big improvement as bigger school clubs could send 2 teams and get 16 players to experience playing for their school.
