Bride Rovers GAA Club Notes

Trip to Tipp for Hurlers

Our senior hurlers travelled to Tipperary on Sunday last for a challenge game. The opposition was provided by Kildangan, the club of Tipp senior panellist Darragh Egan, and the game was played in the Éire Óg pitch in Annacarty. It was a lively pipe opener for the season and our ability to score points was the vital factor in the game. We won by 21 points to 2-7. The 2010 County Senior Hurling League commences on Sunday week march 14th.

Team v Kildangan: D.Lane, S.Kearney, B.O’Driscoll, T.Moloney, L.Forde, B.Walsh, B.Murphy, J.Pratt, B.Murphy, K.Collins, M.Kearney, B.Johnson, P.Murphy, S.Ryan, J.Mannix. Subs Used: P.O’Driscoll, O.Murphy, F.Collins, R.O’Connor & J.O’Connor.

Thanks to the Éire Óg club for the use of their pitch on Sunday and also to the referee.

Well Done Brian

Well done to Brian Murphy and the Cork Hurling team on defeating Offaly in the second of the Allianz National Hurling League last Sunday. Cork have a game in Fermoy against Clare on Saturday night in the deferred opening of the Fermoy Floodlights. Then on Sunday week triple All Ireland Champions Kilkenny come to town for a vital game in the Hurling League. The Cork v Kilkenny game is a special promotion game and all juveniles will be admitted free of charge.
