CLUB NOTES 26th April 2016

Mixed fortunes in the first round of Hurling Championship games at the weekend.

On Thursday, Seniors, despite the best efforts of Gavin Kenny, Conor O’Shea & Fergal Heavey went down by five points to Craobh Chiarain.

On Sat Jnr As had a fine home win over O’Toole’s, best performances were from Scott Murphy, Robbie O’Connell, Neill Bennett & Jake Moore.

On Sun Jnr Bs went to Pairc N. Uisionn and came away with a well deserved draw with St Vincent’s. Inspired by captain Rob Corish these lads gave a great team performance against a strong home side.

A brilliant performance by our U/14 Camogie team in Div 1 Feile who came up short by the narrowest of margins in their group matches and did the club proud
