Commiserations to our senior footballers who were pipped by JK Brackens in the final county championship group game. A Colm Stapleton goal saw us take a 1 point lead into the half time break. That lead extended to 4 points by the 2nd half water break but then it was JK Brackens turn to up the tempo and they scored 6 of the final 7 points to win 0-14 to 1-10. Kilsheelan’s victory over Aherlow gave them top spot in the group and progression to the county semi finals. JK Brackens finished 2nd, we are 3rd and Aherlow will contest the relegation playoffs. The mid championship semi final v Loughmore is currently scheduled for October.

Congratulations to our minor hurlers who overcame Gortnahoe-Glengoole in the mid semi final last Wednesday night. A fine team performance sent us into a commanding lead and despite a strong fightback from Gortnahoe we won by 7 points (2-13 to 0-14). The mid final against Moycarkey/Borris takes place this Sunday at 4pm. Due to government restrictions there are no public tickets available for the game. The game will be streamed live with commentary by Sports Focus and can be viewed on their facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/SportsfocusPhotography Best of luck to all the lads in the match.
