SENIOR FOOTBALL
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.

Weekly Club Notes – July 1st 2016

SENIOR HURLING
Our senior hurlers bowed out of the mid championship at the hands of Loughmore-Castleiney last Saturday evening. After 20 minutes we found ourselves 6 points adrift but battled back to take the lead early in the second half. 2 goals for Loughmore in the space of 5 minutes saw them stretch into a 10 point lead which we were able to reduce to 5 partly due to a goal from a penalty from Paul Ryan. But the remainder of the game belonged to Loughmore as they tagged on a further 6 points without reply leaving a final scoreline of 2-23 to 1-15. The defeat also ends our interest in this years county championship. Our semi final of the county challenge cup vs Holycross has been brought forward to next Wed July 6th at 7:30pm in Drombane.
