Hard luck to our senior hurlers who lost out to JK Brackens on Sunday last in the Co Preliminary Quarter Final. The score in the game was 3 – 17 to 1 – 19, James Mackey getting the first half goal. This defeat ends our interest in this year’s championship, thanks to players and management for the work they put in all year.

Great progress has been made over the past number of weeks on the development of our new full sized pitch. This is a huge project and will take a number of weeks before it is complete. The costs for this are unfortunately also huge and we are continuing to seek funding for this phase of the project. Our membership packages are still open and we thank everyone who has contributed to this to date. If you would like to avail of any of these packages, please contact any club officer or committee member for more information. Donations can also be made electronically - bank details available from Anne Kennedy & John Tooher. Please be sure to include your details if transferring money to this dedicated fundraising account.

Our Under 13A panel were out against Kilruane in Dolla last week in the North Semi Final and what a battle it was with the game going to extra time to decide the winner. Despite a heroic effort from our boys it wasn't to be and that ended the 2022 season for this group. Best wishes to Kilruane in the rest of the competition.
Our Under 13C panel played Shannon Rovers last week in their North Semi Final and despite being well behind at half time our boys rallied fiercely in the second half to bring the margin back to just two points but in the end Shannon Rovers were more clinical in front of goal and took the spoils. Best wishes to Shannon Rovers in the remainder of the competition.
Thanks to the boys and their parents from both groups for all of their commitment and continued support since last November. Thanks to the Under 13 management group for their time and running of these two groups this season. Final training Friday at 6.30, it will be a fun session to close.
