On Monday last our Under 14 team travelled to Ballygunner to play in the semi final of the hurling championship. Despite their best efforts and some excellent displays by some players we were unable to match an excellent Ballygunner team on the night. Well done to this group of players and their mentors for their time and efforts during the year. A big thank you must go to Fergal Slevin, for his medical help during the match and a speedy recovery is wished to Michael Kiely on the injury he picked up.
The Under 16’s travelled to Ballygunner last Sunday morning to play in the quarter final of the hurling championship. The team had a slow start to the game and trailed by nine points at half time. In the second half they played some of the best hurling they played all year which put them a point up with two minutes over time played but unfortunately a close in free was awarded to Ballygunner and the teams were level at the full time whistle.
The game went into extra time and despite our lads trying their hearts out Ballygunner got on top with a few quick scores early in extra time and went on to win the game and qualify for the semi finals.
Well done to this group of players and their mentors for their time and efforts during the year.
Our minor hurlers will play in the County Final this weekend. The match has been scheduled to be played on this Friday night coming at Carriganore. This group of players have trained very hard throughout the whole year and hopefully with a bit of luck on the night they will be successful. They take on Clann na Gael who they beat by a tight margin earlier on in the championship. Throw in at Carriganore is at 7:00pm and support for the lads on the night would be very much appreciated. We wish all the players and mentors involved all the best and hopefully they can add a hurling crown to the football title that they won earlier in the year.
