Senior Hurling:

We were defeated in our final group game of the county championship by Éire Óg Annacarty 2-20 to 1-17. This loss puts us into a four way relegation play off against Ballina, Carrick Swan and Kiladangan with two to go down. Kiladangan and Carrick Swan can escape relegation should they manage to win their divisional championships. We play Coolderry next week in Kilcolman in the Dermot Hogan Memorial tournament.
