Our senior hurlers face Drom & Inch in the final group game in the county championship tonight(Friday 27th) in Templemore at 7:30pm. A win or draw will see us qualify for the county quarter final while a defeat will leave us needing to win the mid championship to qualify for the latter stages of the county championship. Last Friday night we defeated Nenagh Éire Óg in the county challenge cup quarter final(Johnny Ryan section) on a scoreline of 2-14 to 1-13. This win sees us advance to the semi final in the top tier of the competition. Holycross-Ballycahill, Burgess and Toomevara are the other semi-finalists. The quarter final of the mid championship against Loughmore-Castleiney has been fixed for the Saturday of the June bank holiday weekend in The Ragg.
The group stages of the mid junior hurling league are now complete and we have qualified for the final against Gortnahoe-Glengoole. Date and venue haven’t been decided yet.
