Congratulations to the senior footballers who made history in their fist year at senior by qualifying for the mid final with victory over JK Brackens last Friday. We raced into an early lead and led by a point at half time 0-5 to 0-4. A goal early in the second half from Paul Shanahan extended our lead only for Brackens to hit back with a goal of their own. After that we took charge again and manage to ease out the lead to finally finish with a 5 point win 1-12 to 1-7. Loughmore-Castleiney beat Drom & Inch in the other semi. No date is yet set for the final.
The junior hurlers had a comprehensive victory over JK Brackens in their final game of the mid group stage last Sunday 3-23 to 0-17. This leaves us on maximum 8 pts from 4 games and we now await the knockout stages.
The minor hurling game against the combo of Moyne-Templetouhy and Thurles Gaels originally scheduled for last Wednesday has been moved to next Monday at 7:30pm in Drombane. On Thursday they meet Na Sairséalaigh Óg in the Outside Field in Thurles at 7:15pm
The opening game of the mid championship against Thurles Gaels originally pencilled in for this Sunday has been pushed back to the 12th Aug. We now begin with a game against Boherlahan Dualla on Monday 8th Aug at 7pm in Boherlahan.
