Hurling 365 has been in operation in both Monageer and Boolavogue parish for a number of months now. This is a well run and fun aspect of promoting Hurling in the area and bringing children into our national games that may otherwise may not have got the opportunity of doing so. It works by bringing both the Schools and Clubs together to promote and to provide weekly coaching to children.
The Launce of ‘Putting Wexford First-Hurling 365’ took place last September in the Ferrycarrig Hotel, with club under-age Chairmen and club Coaching Officers in attendance. It was initiated by the Wexford Coaching & Games Development Committee and it was based on successful models in Kilkenny, Clare and Waterford. Wexford G.A.A., through support from the Hickey Fund, provide a grant, payable to the school, up to a maximum of €500 for equipment. This is a hurling-only initiative and is an additional support over and above the current County Board funding. This initiative will not diminish current football coaching activity but rather is aimed at enhancing, and increasing, hurling participation in clubs/schools
It is run by volunteers who help schools and clubs to shape their own future development and equip children with the key skills and of course love of the game. Not only does it help to promote the game but also is the foundation of many a long lasting friendships.

Monageer Boolavogue U14 team had their first outing of the season last Sunday the 23rd when we hosted the first round of the U14 football feile. Our boys overcame Davidstown Courtnacuddy in the first game on a scoreline of 4-5 to 1-0. Next up were St. Josephs of Wexford town who went on to win the feile group. Conceding an early goal was too big a score to overcome in a tight game of this nature. While we had several shots on goal Monageer Boolavogue could not open their scoring account and ended up losing on a score of 1-3 to no score in a very competitive game.
Determined not to finish on a losing trend the team rallied and beat Ballyhogue in the last game by 3-6 to 2-1. Best for Monageer Boolavogue on the day were Jack Redmond who picked off several scores from corner forward through the morning. Also Micheal Gahan, Harry Ellix and Jack Tyrell in goal was excellent.
