On the 28th of March (Good Friday) O’Tooles GAC are hosting our Wall Ball Challenge for 2018. We first hosted this competition in 2012, starting out with an under 16s, 14s and 12s. After a few years of refinement, we came to the conclusion that the best age for The Challenge is Under 10s and 12s.
This for the first time our under 12 competition will be in honor of our previous Club President, Jim Murphy. Jim passed away in 2015, however is not forgotten and we, O’Tooles, through this established competition, want Jim’s Memory to live on. For the first time, the winner of the under 12
competition will be presented with the Jim Murphy Memorial Challenge Trophy. This unique trophy is currently being designed by Stoney CNC.
Both Challenges are free to enter. If you would like to enter players, please complete the registration form below before the Friday the 9th of

The idea behind the competition is to encourage players within clubs to avail of the ball walls; to encourage players to “puck around” outside of training times and finally to allow clubs compare the skill levels of their players with other clubs in the locality.
