Colleges Hurling
UCC continued on their winning ways last week with a victory over St Patricks Mater Dei at the Mardyke in their defence of the Fitzgibbon Cup .They now face UCD in the quarter final this week also in the Mardyke , best wishes to Conor Lehane, Killian Burke, Brian Hartnett and Tommy Wallace who are all part of the panel.

Allianz Hurling League
Last Saturday evening at a packed Pairc Ui Rinn Cork and Limerick played out a very entertaining draw. We had three club players involved, Conor Lehane played at full forward and scored two points in the first half, unfortunately minutes into the second half he had to leave the field with an injury. Luke O Farrell came on in the second half for Cian Mc Carthy but also left with an injury and Paul Haughney came on late in the game for his debut at mid field. Cork now face Laois away next Saturday and best wishes to the two lads in their recovery from the injury’s.

Stress Control Course
The third session of the Stress Control Course took place last Wednesday night and despite the inclement weather a great crowd turned up once again. The course will continue for 3 more consecutive Wednesday evenings.
