Three under 18 Irish Hockey Players from the One Cork Parish

Three members of the victorious Irish under-18 Boys’ Hockey Team who recently returned from the EuroYouthHockey Championships in Gasawa, Poland are from the parish of Douglas Union with Frankfield in the Diocese of Cork. All three – Alex Burns, Gary Wilkinson and Simon Wolfe – are also past-pupils of St Luke’s National School, Douglas and currently play for Church of Ireland Hockey Club, Garryduff in Cork.  Each also plays for his current school: Alex (Midleton College) and, Gary and Simon (Ashton School).
