JUNIOR B ALL IRELAND FINAL
This Sunday sees the club face into our first ever full team All Ireland final. After a well earned victory over Kinvara in the semi final we earn a crack once again at Whitechurch of Cork in the final. The game will throw in at 2pm next Sunday in Killeedy GAA, Raheenagh, Limerick. As much support as possible is encouraged after a hugely successful year for our juniors. Best of luck to the team management and players and hopefully next Sunday night will see the cup brought back to the hills.

COUNTY HURLING LEAGUES
Our hurlers had mixed fortunes in the opening weekend of the county hurling leagues. In Div 1 we suffered a 5 point defeat to Eire Og Annacarty despite being well in contention for most of the game. The final scoreline was 2-17 to 1-15. In Division 5 our junior team ran out 5 point victors over Skeheenarinky in Drombane. After a one sided first half we took our foot off in the second half and eventually emerged 3-15 to 3-11

UNDER 21 HURLING
On St Patricks Days our under 21 hurlers got their championship campaign underway against Moycarkey-Borris. In a tight game we finally emerged victorious 2-9 to 1-8.
