Further proof today why Kilkenny's obsession with hurling make them so great

In St Kieran’s College there’s only one education that matters.

ANOTHER YEAR OF Kilkenny hurling dominance ended last Sunday with the Liam MacCarthy Cup safely stowed on the trip home to Noreside for the 36th time.

There’s been plenty debate about the Cats national control on the game since last Sunday’s win.

In the search for clues as to why Kilkenny are so successful, this tweet today from the county’s famous hurling nursery St Kieran’s College sheds some light.

Students may be back to hit the books for a new school year but in Kilkenny there’s more important things than education.

With four of the current Kilkenny senior squad – Jonjo Farrell, Michael Rice, Lester Ryan and Michael Walsh – teaching in St Kieran’s, that conveyor belt looks set to continue operating.
