Our senior hurlers defeated Toomevara in the Tipperary Water county league on Tuesday evening last in St. Michael’s Park. Killian Gleeson set us up with an early goal and we finished three point winners, 1-21 to 1-18.
Well done to Tipp Senior hurlers Barry Heffernan and Jake Morris and the team on another solid display. Hard luck to the minor team and our own Paul McLoughlin on their loss to Clare.
