As a follow on from the county’s indoor hurling blitzes which have ran for the last number of years, the same type of activity is again being planned for this February by the Westmeath Coaching and Games Committee in conjunction with Cumann na mBunscol Iarmhí. The format will be similar to last year, with schools playing a series of games in a blitz with morning sessions running from 10am to 12pm and new schools involved playing in the afternoon session from 12.30pm – 2.30pm. Each school will play in one blitz with the option of a ‘Finals Day’ for each of the blitz winners. Hurling and camogie competitions will be run separately with Streete Community Hall and AIT again hosting the games.
