UNDER 21 HURLING
Our under 21 hurlers continued their interest in this years championship as they claimed a deserved victory over Boherlahan Dualla in Holycross last Sunday. An early goal put us on our way and we headed into the break 6 points to the good. Noherlahan staged an expected fightback in the second half but our lads were able to maintain their advantage and won on a scoreline of 2-18 to 2-13. They are now in the mid semi final where they face the Moyne-Templetouhy/Thurles Gaels combo. This game at the moment is scheduled for Sat 17th at 2pm in Templemore
