We were comprehensively beaten by Nenagh last Saturday afternoon. This ends our participation in this competition for the year. It is very difficult to win matches without your full compliment of players. We expected good things from this team but unfortunately it was not to be. Thanks to all who were involved during the year.
Junior C Hurling
We are still waiting for this fixture to be confirmed. Training is still continuing and hopefully this will stand to the team in the next match.
Congratulations Jimmy
Congratulations to Jimmy Finn who has been confirmed as our new President. This was a unanimous decision by the officers and committee.
