On Friday, 2nd September 2011, Junior Infants, Senior Infants & First Class made their own Liam McCarthy Cup and waved the Kilkenny Colours to the traffic passing through Castlecomer!

The children really enjoyed the acknowledgement they received from passing traffic.

We’re hoping the Real Liam McCarthy Cup will be back in Kilkenny this year!!
