Out senior hurlers defeated Kilruane MacDonaghs in the final round of the Div 1 county hurling league last Saturday. A fine performance saw them run out2 point victors 0-24 to 2-16. The dates of the next championship fixtures will be known soon and are dependant on the outcome of the Tipperary v Clare game this weekend.
