10 August, 2015

Senior Hurling

Our fourth round Championship game and opponents have finally been confirmed, we play St Finbarr’s on Saturday evening next August 15th in Pairc Ui Rinn @ 7.45pm.

We wish the players and management the very best of luck for this game.

In preparation for this game we played Dungarvan in a Tournament final last week, this was a very useful workout for our lads with Aidan Ryan getting the man of the match award and Peter Dowling captaining the winning team.

Our opponents in the East Cork semi final will be Dungourney, this game has been fixed for Ballynoe on Sunday 16th @ 6pm. We wish all the players and management the very best of luck..

In the past week our Junior B hurlers had two very worthwhile challenge games, last Thursday evening we travelled to Cloyne to take on our hosts, this was a very even game throughout but we finished it stronger with a few late points to win by 1-19 to 1-15.

Juvenile

Fe12

Our full U12 hurling panel travelled to Thurles (Semple Stadium) in Tipperary on Friday 7th of August to compete in an Activity Day organized by the Munster Council. For once during this summer the sun shone for the whole of the day, so Semple stadium with looking it’s brilliant best. We were well looked after by John Grainger who was the chief organiser of the day. There were five hurling matches organised for us against the following teams: Lisgoold, Bruff Emly, Thurles Gaels and Ballina. As we travelled with our full panel (we have 34 registered players on the age) we broke up into two teams and all players had a full 2 ½ games on the famous sod. An organised stadium tour was also part of the day. Our tour guides were a number of inter-county players
