Craobh Rua Camlocha, club news and events – 26th February
Fiachra Bradley, Micheal Garvey and Ryan Lewis travelled with the Armagh senior hurling team as squad members to London for their opening national Hurling League Match. Whilst our County team were defeated by a stronger London side, we are very proud of the three lads. Their inclusion in the Armagh senior team set up is a great positive boost to Craobh Rua and the promotion of hurling locally.
