Town and country battle on

Town and country battle on

HUNDREDS of people lined the streets of St Columb Major for the Shrove Tuesday hurl.
This year Nigel Masters threw up the ball on behalf of the winner of the second hurl of 2015, countryman Sean Johns. Sean himself was unable to be present as he was away on his basic training having joined the Royal Marines.

After almost an hour of hurling up and down the street, which included an  impromptu visit to both the Red Lion pub and the Recreation Ground, townsman Marco Ciarlegio made a break down Bank Street in a northerly direction. The ball then passed between a number of townsmen, including Jack Scott and Kaylup Johns, who were harried by the countrymen, amongst them Matthew Rodliffe and Harvey Ellery. Marco regained possession near Trewan Hall and broke away for the parish boundary at Whitewater to record his fifth personal victory.
In the evening silver cocoa was provided for the children and the hurlers toured the pubs drinking silver beer.
