Juvenile Notes - 7th October

Minor Hurling
Pride and place this week goes to our minor hurling team who on Friday night last captured their second Minor ‘B’ Hurling title in a row. Played before a large attendance at Carriganore on Friday night last our lads showed true grit and determination to see off an excellent and well prepared Clan na Gael side. The match was played under the lights on a good night for hurling and our lads played some lovely hurling in the first half to lead at the break by four points. On the resumption however it was the team from the east that dictated affairs and two early goals put them in the lead with 15 minutes remaining. However our boys dug deep in this crucial period of the game and were rewarded with a goal struck off the hurley of Eoin Kiely. The game ebbed and flowed till its conclusion with our boys lucky to hold on at the end by two points. Great scenes of jubilation were evident at the end of the game when team captain Conor Prunty raised the trophy aloft. While the game was very close throughout this was a deserved victory for this very dedicated group of young men. They have now added the Minor B Hurling trophy to the A Football title that they won earlier in the year. It is a great achievement indeed. A big thank you must go to all the players and mentors involved in this victory. We would like to also thank all the supporters who travelled on the night. It was fantastic to see so many familiar faces out in force for this important game. Hopefully it will be onwards and upwards for this group of players in the near future. Also thanks must go to Pat O Brien for supplying light refreshments after the game. Thank you to all.
