Scotland’s U17 shinty select completed another successful Irish tour, recording wins against Waterford U17 and Dublin U17 on their annual four-day visit to the Emerald Isle.

The seventeen-player squad was accompanied by Ronald Ross, Paul MacArthur and Alasdair Bruce.

After an inspiring trip to Croke Park, the Scotland squad travelled south to play Waterford U17. Scotland dominated the game from the start, eventually running out convincing (12-7) 43-13 (1-10) winners.

The annual meeting with Dublin U17 was switched from Parnell Park to the magnificent GAA National Games Development Centre.

Such is the care taken to the pitch that both squads were asked to warm up on the adjacent all-weather surface. Though the Scots eventually ran out (9-3) 30-11 (1-8) winners, the game was closer than the final score suggests.

The travelling Scots, as always, are indebted to Marine Harvest, Gilmour Sports, Seamus Curtis, Waterford GAA and the Dublin County Board for their assistance before and throughout the tour.
