The final group game in the county championship is fixed for this Sat 8th September at 6pm in Dundrum against Arravale Rovers. We currently sit on 2 points from our 2 games. Moyle Rovers have maximum points from the 2 rounds played, Upperchurch & Arravale are on 2 pts while Galtee Rovers are yet to get off the mark. Best of luck to the lads.

Drom’s victory over Thurles Sarsfields left us level on 4 points with both those teams in the county championship and a 3 team playoff is needed to decide which 2 progress to the knockout stages. The first round of this is next Tuesday 11th at 8pm in Templetouhy where Upperchurch will take on Drom & Inch. On Sunday 16th the winner of the first game will face Thurles Sarsfields at 5pm in Holycross. And finally on Wednesday 19th the loser of the first fixture will take on Thurles Sarsfields at 8pm in Templetouhy.

There will be a celebration night this Saturday night in Drombane village for Peter Ryan, Sean Hahessy and all their crew after their successful Race Around Ireland last week. Not only did they complete the 2,100km circuit, they also raised a huge amount of money for the Doran Gleeson fund. The homecoming will be in Drombane Hall at 8:30pm and afterwards there will be music in Neds pub by the Dorans. All are invited to come and join in the celebrations.
