Senior Hockey A Team Compete in Belgium
Nineteen senior A hockey players from Dominican College competed in the Top flight tournament in Belgium during the October mid-term. Teams competing in the tournament travelled from Ireland, England and Belgium. Our senior A hockey players played five matches in their pool and won all of them, putting them through to the final. In the final they played Mount Sackville, Dublin. This match was played at an extremely fast pace and was very tense at times during the match. We narrowly missed out on winning the match and the competition by just one goal and overall Taylorís came second in the tournament which was a great achievement.
Taylor's Wins Connacht Senior A Hockey League
