Philip Hickey strikes a point against Drom & Inch
Our senior side were due to play Roscrea in the county league over the weekend but this game did not go ahead as Roscrea conceded. This means we have qualified for the division one semi-final. The lads have returned to training now in full preparation for the welcome resumption of the club championship in the coming weeks.
The junior-A side face Borris-Ileigh in Templederry on Friday evening at 19:30.
We send our best wishes to the junior-B side who face Lorrha & Dorrha in the next round of the championship on Sunday next at 7pm in St Ruadhan’s Park, Redwood, Lorrha. The lads have been training hard since their opening round defeat to Silvermines and will be hopeful of getting a vital win.
Cian Connolly clears his lines against Roscrea in the under-14 championship
Under-6 training continued on Tuesday and Saturday with great numbers again. There is a hurling blitz next Saturday at 10am in Newport with another blitz organized with Roscrea in Nenagh on the 14th July. All of the children are showing great improvements in their skills so keep them practicing at home to make sure we all progress together.
The under-8 boys had a blitz Saturday morning at home. Kilruane MacDonaghs, Portroe & Dúrlas Óg took part. Great fun was had by all. The boys enjoyed a pre-match parade. Again the parents made the guests feel very welcome serving plenty of healthy treats and refreshments after the blitz.
Under-10 training for both hurling and Gaelic football continues on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
The under-12 team lost on Friday evening to Lorrha by a point in a very entertaining game. The boys played their hearts out and drew level with time up only to be denied by a point in the last puck of the game. Our under-12 D’s got a bye from the same opposition. We now play Borris-Ileigh next Friday in Nenagh, all support appreciated.
Under-16 training continues as normal and it is important that the entire panel attends as the championship is starting in two weeks
