The Hurling Club was formed in 06/07 by a group of students from Ireland. Deprived of Hurling success in their native Co Galway, they embarked on a mission to make their own history by winning the British Championship in their first year. The squad consisted of players from all the major Hurling counties with the team mascot (Stevie Coen) hailing from the stronghold of Co Mayo.
In 07/08 Athenry native Brian O’Regan took over the team and cracked the whip at the first training session. He set out the aims for the year, which consisted of trying to regain the British Championship and competing in the Fergal Maher Cup held on Fitzgibbon Cup weekend.
We travelled to Birmingham in the 2nd weekend of November and retained the British Championship and after strenuous fundraising efforts we travelled to Cork in the first weekend of March and won the Fergal Maher Cup. In doing this the club created history by being the first British Uni to win a Hurling competition in Ireland, and only the second Uni to win a Gaelic Games competition following in the footsteps of St Marys, London who won a Trench Cup in 04.
