Imokilly Senior Hurling Team News

Sadly the weather was against us once again and Monday nights challenge game against the Cork Intermediate team was rescheduled for later on, we will let you know when that game will go ahead. Moving on Imokilly will take on Thurles Sarsfields in Thurles on Sunday 20th March with an 11.30am throw in, Cork take on Tipperary in the Senior Hurling league that day so you can make it a day out by going to both games. With these games on the calendar it will give everyone a chance to go along and support Imokilly in action. You know the dates so there is no excuse.

Each week we hope to introduce you to one of the members of the Imokilly Panel so this week we introduce Brian Lawton from Castlemartyr
