Our u21’s travelled to Shallee on Sunday morning last and recorded a fine 0-18 to 0-12 win over Ballina. We hurled against the wind in slippery conditions our lads laid the foundations for the win with a great first half defensive performance. Well done lads.

Hard luck to our senior hurlers who were beaten by a late goal in Sundays county senior Hurling game v Mullinahone. The final score was 1-17 to 0-18. Our injury woes have increased with a shoulder injury to Stephen Murray and we also suffered a harsh red card for Brian Hogan. Our next senior outing is the North quarter final against Templederry at 2pm in Nenagh on Sunday June 11th. We are looking for big support for our lads again.
Junior B League:
Our juniors put in a good performance against Lorrha on Friday last but just ran out of legs in the second half and a strong Lorrha pulled away to finished 0-16 to 2-22.
