Our senior hurlers showed great fight and composure when overturning a large deficit against Moycarkey-Borris in the mid semi final last weekend. Initially all looked to be going well as we took an early 2 point lead after 10 minutes but Moycarkey, with the aid of the breeze, scored 3 goals in under 10 minutes to take charge. Scores were spread evenly afterwards leaving us with a 6 point deficit at the break. Moycarkey held resolute early in the second half and we still trailed by 8 midway through.
However a fine goal from Loughlin Ryan followed by one from Jack Butler saw us work our way back into the game and points from Niall Grant, Paul Shanahan, Loughlin Ryan and a trio from Paudie Greene were enough to clinch a 4 point victory 2-23 to 3-16. Great credit to the lads for their performance.
Awaiting us on Sunday are Drom & Inch in the mid final. The game throws in at 3pm in Littleton. This will be our 4th appearance in a mid final and our 3rd in the last 6 years. Best of luck to all involved as they seek to bring home a first ever mid senior title to the parish. Hopefully a fine crowd will be there to support them.

Another huge game for the club is our first ever appearance in a senior county quarter final. Next Wednesday we will face JK Brackens in Littleton at 8pm. Note the change of time and venue from when first announced. Again, best of luck to management and players.
