U14 Hurling

Commiserations to our u14 hurlers who went down fighting to Borrisoleigh in Kilcolman on Saturday last.

Junior A Hurling

Hard luck to our Junior A’s who were beaten by Borrisoleigh on Friday last. We had a disastrous first half, going in at the break 3-9 to 0-6 down. But great credit is due to our lads who put in a battling second half performance which saw us lose out 3-16 to 1-14.

Senior Hurling

Our next game in the Clean Ireland Recycling County Senior Hurling Championship is against  Borrisoleigh on Saturday 10th August in McDonagh park at 7pm. All support for our boys would be greatly appreciated.
