The senior hurlers had 2 tough games in the past week. In division 1 of the county league we suffered our first defeat of the campaign against Drom & Inch. We were under pressure after a slow start and never fully recovered as Drom ran out 4-17 to 2-11 winners in the Ragg. This result leaves us in 2nd place in the group. Then on Tuesday night we faced JK Brackens in the Cahill Cup with Brackens claiming the spoils on a scoreline of 2-16 to 1-15. Our next county league game is on next Friday(14th) in Drombane at 7:30pm against Moycarkey/Borris.
The junior footballers were pipped by Moyne/Templetouhy in the opening round of the mid championship last weekend with Moyne finishing strongly to claim a 2 point victory, 0-11 to 1-6. Our next game in the championship will be against JK Brackens tomorrow(Sat 8th) at 7:30pm in Templemore
The first round of the mid junior A hurling championship has been fixed for June 22nd where we will take on Boherlahan Dualla in Boherlahan. Throw in time has yet to be fixed.
