FBD Insurance County Championships
A very busy weekend on the hurling front last weekend with a total of 16 games being played over the weekend. In the senior hurling championship semi finals, a large attendance gathered in FBD Semple Stadium to watch both games on Sunday afternoon in spite of the very poor weather conditions. In the first game, Upperchurch Drombane were looking to make history and qualify for the final, While Kilruane MacDonaghs were hoping it would be they who would be in front at the final whistle. This was a game that never really sparked into life which in all fairness was very understandable given the poor weather. However it was the Kilruane MacDonaghs men who seemed to deal with the conditions a little better than their opposition as they took an early lead that they never relinquished winning in the end by 2-17 to 1-14. The second semi final between Kiladangan and Drom & Inch was expected to be a closely fought out battle and so it proved to be, but before the game commenced players, officials and supporters stoot in silence as a mark of respect to those who lost their lives in that tragic accident in Creslough County Donegal last Friday afternoon. The game itself was a ell contested encounter with many fine scores and one or two mistakes along the way. There was never much more than a puck of the ball between the sides and indeed as full time approached, it looked as if extra time might have been required, but a late Kiladangan goal sealed the deal for them as they held out for a 1-21 to 1-17 win. This years senior hurling final will now be an all North Tipperary battle and is sure to attract a large attendance to FBD Semple Stadium on Sunday week.
