The U12 championship pool stages have almost concluded with semi and quarter final pairings down for decision this week following a small number of outstanding matches.
In A grade, the final pool game between Kilruane & Kildangan this week will decide who goes straight to the semi or who must play the quarter. It may even require a play off, but all will be revealed this week. In any event Roscrea are guaranteed a semi spot.
In B, Lorrha & Borrisoleigh must meet again in a play off to decide who goes straight to the semi as they finished level on points. Silvermines also go straight through. The quarter final’s will be fixed at the CCC meeting this week.
In C, Templederry are looking good with one round remaining. This week will see Templederry v Shannon Rvrs, Ballinahinch v Roscrea 2 and Ballina 2 v Moneygall. Newport are finished the pool stage with 4 pts.
D Grade pool stages are complete already with Toomevara second team and Roscrea third team making the semis. The remaining four teams will contest the quarters finals which will be announced this week.
The A championship began last week and saw Kildangan beat Toomevara 3-5 to 0-6 and Roscrea overcoming Silvermines 0-7 to 0-5. This week we have Roscrea V Nenagh and Kildangan v Silvermines.

Congratulations to Newport Gaels who put in some fine performances in the National Feile Peil tournament last weekend in Connaught.
