CLUB NOTES 21st April 2015

We had a full round of adult hurling fixtures this weekend. Seniors had a convincing League win 1-18 to 0-10 over Whitehall Colmcille on Saturday evening. We wish a speedy recovery to James Robinson who picked up a nasty hand injury in this game. Junior As lost their League game v Clann na Gael Fontenoy and Junior Ds lost narrowly to neighbours St. Judes despite great performances from Conor Kennedy, and Eanna and Caoilte Burke.

Best of luck to our senior hurlers as they take on Lucan Sarsfields in the first round of the championship on Saturday evening next in O’Toole Park @ 4.00, also Junior As who play St. Finians (Swords) in Tymon Nth @ 6.00, (also championship) and to our minors who play Naomh Barrog in Div 2 League on Sunday morning @ 11.00 in Pairc Barrog. Please come out and support our teams in these important games.
