A controversial incident where Eoin Hogan was dragged to the ground and no penalty was awarded

Our seniors crashed out of the county senior county championship at the weekend after a 2-17 to 2-23 defeat to Nenagh. This result puts us into a relegation dogfight with Portroe, Killenaule and Moycarkey Borris. Our lads are still involved in the North championship with quarter final to come against neighbours Ballina. This game will take place in Nenagh on Saturday September 14th at 5:30pm and once again we are looking for big support for our lads.
