Under 13A hurlers lost to Silvermines by four points in Ballina last Tuesday evening at quarter-final stage. This was a great game played at a very fast pace on a very warm sunny evening. The boys played excellently right throughout the match only to concede two late goals in the final six minutes but the boys battled very hard to the finish. This group also travelled to Ahane last Friday evening for a challenge game where they again played extremely well and have improved consistently over the year. We played Newport on Tuesday evening in the plate semi final.
Under 13D hurlers advanced to the north semi-final last Wednesday evening after a convincing performance against Kiladangan and came out victorious by seven points. The boys now meet Toomevara in the semi-final this Wednesday evening in Dolla at 6:30.
Under U15 hurlers will play in the quarter final v Borrisoleigh in Dolla next Thursday evening at 6.30. Best wishes to the boys.
Before the semi final the boys were presented with Nenagh Éire Óg tops by Tom Gleeson on behalf of Irishcomputers. Sincere thanks to Irishcomputers for their kind sponsorship of the tops.
