A huge congratulations to our Senior who have got through to the Division 1 County Hurling League Final after a great win over Nenagh Eire Og in the Semi Final last Sunday in a high quality encounter in McDonagh Park, Nenagh. We were victorious on a scoreline of 0-21 to 1-16. We now will face Drom Inch in the final which has yet to be fixed in what is sure to be a hotly contested encounter against our great rivals and neighbours. Well done to both players and management. The team that played was as follows:

Jack Bourke,

Sean McCormack (0-01), Seamus Burke

Well done to both our of U12 teams who have made it through to the North Hurling Championship finals in both the ‘A’ and ‘D’ grades.
