We would like to extend our condolences to the English family following the death this week of Sean English.
The club’s Senior hurlers play Mullinahone at 3:30 p.m this Sunday in Templemore in the final group game of the County Championship.
Juvenile Club Notes
Under-10: The Under-11 boys played Roscrea in the community games. The boys played some fantastic hurling but came up short against a very strong Roscrea Team.
Under-14: Our Under-14s had their second win of the championship following Victory over Silvermines last Wednesday evening. Well done to the boys. They play Ballina this Wednesday at 6.30pm in Ballina.
Under-16: Our footballers interest in the championship ended at the semi-final stage on Monday last with a defeat to Lorrha Rovers on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-9. The Blues put in a gallant effort.
Attention now turns to the hurling and the boys played a challenge against Kilmaley of Clare in McDonagh Park on Sunday morning with all players getting time. Training continues on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Camogie Club Notes
Intermediate: We were unfortunately beaten by Drom & Inch in the county intermediate league final on Sunday evening last in The Ragg. The girls hurled their hearts out but unfortunately ran out of steam playing into the strong breeze in the second half. To get to the league final in our first year at this grade is a fantastic achievement and shows the hard work the girls have been putting in under the management of Paul Henry, Bertie Sherlock and Kate McGrath and it augurs well for the upcoming championship which will not begin for a number of weeks.
Best Wishes: We send our best wishes to Ger Maher who is a little under the weather at the moment and we hope it wont be long until he is back in the club watching our teams play.
Tipperary: Last Saturday was another brilliant day in our club’s history as five girls won All Ireland minor championship medals as Tipperary overcame Galway in the replayed final in Birr. It was great to see such a large following from the club make the trip to support the team and the five girls, Ruth Hassett, Sarah Quigley, Hazel McAuliffe, Maeve Coffey and Grace O Brien now join Ciara McGrath as winners of this championship from our club. We also send our congratulations to Nenagh Handball Club and Kiladangan player Sinead Meagher who was also part of the panel and she had the final say in proceedings grabbing a late goal to seal the win. Well done to all involved.
