Munster Minor Tournament: On Saturday afternoon last our minor team traveled to Dr Morris Park, Thurles for the inaugural Munster Minor hurling championship. In the first game we defeated De La Salle (Waterford) on a score line of 1-12 to 1-6. In the semi-finals we were pitted against Kerry outfit Causeway. We won 2-10 to 1-3 to set up a final meeting with Doon (Limerick). After a slow start the lads got themselves back into the contest and trailed by two at the break. The lads showed great heart and determination, but unfortunately ended up on the wrong side of a two-point defeat (0-9 to 0-7). Well done to the panel and management following a great year.
