St Killian’s have two players included in the Ulster Schools’ All-star hurling team announced this week at a reception in Riddell Hall hosted by sponsors Danske Bank. Both Francis McCurry and Ed McQuillan are from the Ruairí Óg club in Cushendall and both are selected in the forward line.
For corner-forward Ed McQuillan it is a second All-star after he was named at midfield in last year’s team.
