GALWAY GAA: (Reaction) – DAVID JORDAN (Portumna Community School)


Portumna Community School were crowned Connacht Post Primary Schools Senior B Hurling Champions last Saturday as they beat Calasanctius College, Oranmore 6-9 to 2-9 in Duggan Park, Ballinasloe.

(Match Report)

Two John Fleming goals along with further strikes for Liam Quirke, Denis McLoughlin, Oisin Sullivan and Jack Kelly helped them to a comfortable victory and they’ll face the Leinster champions on March 10th in the All-Ireland semi-final.

Tynagh/Abbey-Duniry’s David Jordan was the winning captain and the wing back spoke to us after the game.

“It’s a great feeling,” said Jordan.  “The lads just put in a serious effort from the start and they never gave up.  And we kept ticking on the scores.  To be fair to Oranmore, they pulled it back there for a while at the end.  But we kept in the game.

“The backs worked tirelessly getting in hooks and blocks and they made sure there was no goals scored today.  And thankfully, they worked very hard.  And the forwards as well, (they) got a lot of scores as well.

“You can always trust the lads up front.  John (Fleming), he’s well able to take on a few scores and the lads inside as well.  When you hit the ball into them, they’ll convert.

“Ah we will I’d say.  We’ll give a good go at it anyways.”
