St Colman’s play St Kieran’s College Kilkenny in the All Ireland Final

Nice to give our sincere congrats again to St Colman’s in their Junior All Ireland Hurling Semi Final hurling victory over Gort Community College. Our own three lads on the team Jack Kenny, James Kearney, David Morrison all made telling contributions with David Morrison striking over three great points from play and not forgetting our panel members Shane Cotter, Peter Roche, Leon Doocey and Shane Flynn.

This was a cracking game with St Colman’s showing great spirit and skill on the day and as the saying goes “goals win matches” and the Castletownroche man Dylan O Connor scored a mighty one on half time as Rovers goalie Ben Hogan made a massive save at the other end.

So, it’s off to Clonmel on Sunday for a 2 pm start in the All Ireland Final versus old rivals St Kieran’s of Kilkenny. Kieran’s got a bye into the Final after defeating Castlecomer CS, in the Leinster Final. They are a strong side especially up the middle with Conor Murphy (Capt), Ciaran Brennan both from Bennetsbridge, Jamie Young, Dacel Fwamba both O Loughlin Gaels showing up well.

However, St Colman’s have improved with every game and will give it everything on Sunday Best of luck to the lads and to their mentors Garvan Queeney (Vice Principal), Jimmy Condon and our own Anthony Spillane, who are all great hurling men too. St Colman’s Abú.

“Anthony Spillane, Castlelyons, presently on the teaching staff at St Colman’s and a selector for Sundays All Ireland Final”


Coláiste An Craoibhín in Munster Final.

Congratulations also to Coláiste An Craoibhín who had an outstanding victory in the Munster Semi Final as they defeated Kenmare CS 3 – 11 to 3 – 6 and are only a game away from glory and making it a great year for Fermoy College teams. Our own Conor McCarthy is Captain of this team and he had a mighty year with Castlelyons this year playing so well at both minor and U16. We wish the Coláiste the best in the final.
