We could not be prouder of the bravery these young men have shown!
A small gesture from their minor hurling management and Jack McAlister for their quick actions and selfless act.
Well Done Shane, Josh, Michael and Niall Óg.

Not all heroes wear capes
Some wear face guards and helmets.
A few days ago, four minor Ruairí Óg hurlers by the names of Michael,
Josh, Shane and Niall Óg saw two young children struggling to swim in the sea.
Their father was trying to rescue his children, however he could not swim and
was struggling himself. Upon seeing this, the four young men prioritised the
children’s safety and put in action a plan to rescue them. The bravery shown was phenomenal.
Jack and the minor management from Cushendall agreed that this deserved some sort of recognition. So Jack and the minor management have decided to donate each lad a hurling stick, a slíotar and a hurling grip. This is only but a small token of the appreciation and pride we have for the admirable actions of four outstanding young members of our community.
