Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
Our minor hurlers were the first team in the club to take to the field in championship action this year and ended up on the wrong side of a 3-10 to 5-15 scoreline against Lorrha Rovers in Puckane. Seth Shayanewako was in flying form early on setting up goals for Ben West and Seán Crowe however Lorrha Rovers quickly took control and as we approached half time, they took a lead which they would not relinquish for the remainder of the encounter. Jamie Cottrell got a late goal for the Blues but it wasn’t enough to close the gap.
Our senior hurlers open their championship campaign on Sunday evening next, 7pm, Semple Stadium against Holycross Ballycahill in the FBD Insurance county championship. Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 restrictions, the attendance at this fixture will be limited to 200 people. This figure includes the panels, management and backroom teams of both clubs as well as the referee and his officials. Therefore, access for our supporters will be severely limited. Unless you have one of the golden tickets you will be denied entry. We do acknowledge that many of our supporters will be bitterly disappointed at not being able to attend but this is out of our hands and indeed out of the control of the GAA who are only following government restrictions. However, you can follow the proceedings as we will be providing updates on our Twitter account.
The club offers its sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the late Donal Hackett, Fintan Lalor St. Nenagh and Urra, Ballycommon. Donal was a former hurler with the club and won a number of championships during his playing days. To his family Roisin, Dan, Brid, Niamh, Sean and Eadaoin, brothers Patrick, John and Eugene, sisters Michelle, Brigid, Jennifer and Nuala, his grandchildren and extended family, we offer our sincerest condolences. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
