Senior Hurling:
What a great day it was for Thurles Sarsfields and all our followers when our senior hurlers qualified for our first ever Munster Club Senior Hurling Final. The team showed tremendous spirit, heart and commitment to secure victory in the highly charged atmosphere of Kilmallock. Great credit is due the panel of players, management and back room team for achieving victory and we wish them well as they busily prepare for the Munster Final. It will be a proud day for our club as we not alone represent our parish but the county on the provincial stage.

Munster Junior B Hurling Championship:
Killeedy GAA Club Co Limerick organise the Munster Junior B Championship each year. We will be representing Tipperary in this competition. We have been drawn to play Sixmilebridge in the semi-final in Killeedy on December 5th 2010. The panel are back in training for this competition so all supporters are asked to keep this date in mind.

Vote of sympathies passed at recent club meeting were for Jerome O'Brien, Sean Mockler and Peter Dorney.


Moyle Rovers  5-9   Sarsfields 2-9
Played in Gortnahoe the day cleared up just in time for throw in. The heavy rain had made the pitch very wet which made ball handling very difficult. Moyle Rovers came out very strong and their recent run in the Munster Junior championship looked like standing to them as they ran into a 2-7 to 0-2 lead on twenty minutes. Indeed the enforced three week lay off for the Sars girls as Moyle participated in this other competition may have contributed to Sars slow start. From the twenty minute mark though the sars girls pushed on and by half time had brought the score back to 2-7 to 1-4. Having to chase the game meant that Sars were always going to be left open at the back and despite a very brave effort the girls just could not bridge the gap and moyle broke away and added the game winning goals. This was a dissapponting end for this ambitious and brave panel that fought right up until the final whistle. All the girls played their hearts out for the cause but a special mention must go too Megan O'Sullivan and Aoife McGrath who were outstanding from start to finish. 

To all club members, committee members, trainers and supporters, please don't forget the up coming table quiz on the 26th Nov at the Monks pub on Mitchel Street. It is a great night out so all the support would be much appreciated.
