The club championship starts again with a match against Killenaule this evening(Friday 23rd) at 6:45pm in Littleton. After a very unlucky 1 point defeat to Moyle Rovers in our first game in April we will be looking to bounce back with victory here. Best of luck to players & management. The final group game is against Eire Óg Anacarty in Dundrum on Wed Sept 11th at 6pm.
The next few weeks will be very busy on the championship front with 3 senior hurling matches to be played by mid September. We will resume county championship action on Sunday Sept 1st with a clash against Burgess at 2:30pm in The Ragg. The final county group round against Loughmore-Castleiney will be played on Saturday Sept 7th at 5pm in Templetouhy. Following these 2 fixtures is our mid quarter final against Thurles Sarsfields scheduled for Sunday Sept 15th at 2pm in The Ragg.
Commiserations to our minors who were defeated by Gortnahoe-Glengoole in the mid final last Saturday. Final score was 1-19 to 1-11.
