On Saturday last our hurlers headed for Littleton to play in the Conor Kennedy Tournament run by Moycarkey Borris of Tipperary.We were in a group with both Kilkenny and Kildare Feile champions O’ Loughlin Gaels and Naas. First up were O’ Loughlins who beat us by a point in a great game, next were Naas who used the strong wind in the first half to put scores on the board which we were unable to match losing out by four points.In the last game we played Tyrone Club Eoghain Ruadh in which we ran out comfortable winners.A great day was had by all and some valuable lessons were learnt by this group of players in their development going forward.This will also benefit us a we prepare for the regional Feile on June the 20th at WIT.
