All-Ireland Minor Semi-Final Victory

Cork minor hurlers are just an hour away from a dream double of All-Ireland underage hurling successes after beating Dublin in the curtain raiser last Sunday. As has been the case for each game this season, a large following from Lisgoold travelled to support Liam O’Shea and team mates. While Liam didn’t get on the scoreboard on this occasion, he contributed significantly to the win with some clever assists and was fouled on 3 occasions leading to Rebel points. We wish Liam the best of luck in the final in a couple of weeks.

Junior A Hurling Championship.

Lisgoold will renew rivalries with near neighbours St. Catherine’s in the Junior A Hurling championship semi-final next Sunday at 2:00 pm in Castlelyons. These sides met in a cracking encounter last month with the Saints narrowly edging out Lisgoold in a high scoring encounter after extra-time. Since then, Lisgoold has defeated the second string outfits from Fr. O’Neill’s and Killeagh while St. Catherine’s inflicted a heavy defeat on Cobh in the quarter final. The Saints will be tough opponents again, but no doubt the lads will be primed for championship fare and let’s hope they end up on the right side of the score line this time.

Juvenile Round-Up

Lisgoold minor hurlers face St. Vincents next Saturday evening in Caherlag (18:30) with a place in the East Region final at stake. This should be a tight contest; Lisgoold qualified after a 4 point win over Whitechurch, while St. Vincents notched up a big score in defeating Clyda Rovers.
