Munster Final; & Football Championship.

Scor Munster Final on Saturday.

All roads lead to the Eire Og GAA Club pavilion in Ovens on Saturday evening next for the Munster Final of Scor. We have qualified for the Leiriu Final - this was formerly the Novelty Act but the emphasis now is very much on Irish History and Folklore. In recent years we've been in Munster finals in Limerick, Templemore , Killarney and in Cork City Hall. Our cast of Jonathon Bracket, John Arnold and Mossy O Sullivan will perform 'Will They Remember' in Ovens on Saturday night. The competition commences at 6.30 and we should be on stage about 8pm. This is a Provincial Final but also an All Ireland Semi Final as the winners go forward to the All Ireland Final in City West Dublin at the end of April. Break a leg lads.

Senior Success at Seaside.

It was a trip to the seaside for our senior hurlers on Sunday last. At high noon in Copperalley we faced Youghal in our third game of the league. With defeats to Killeagh and Erins Own in recent weeks we needed a boost. In fairness the lads responded well to the challenge and won by 1  22 to 1  11.

Panel for the game was;  Donncha Carr, Fergus Collins, Daniel Dooley, William Finnegan, Stephen Glasgow, Frank Hogan, Barry Johnson, Shane Kearney, Jason Mannix, Brian Murphy, Brendan O' Driscoll, Tadhg O' Sullivan, Jason Pratt, Ryan Prendergast, Sean Ryan, Shane Walsh. Our next game in the SHL is v  Glen Rovers on April the 10th, at home.
