A very busy weekend saw the club have the good fortune to secure victory in all three finals contested.
Co Minor A Hurling Final.
Congratulations to our minors who captured the Sean Treacy Cup by defeating Nenagh Eire Og in Dolla on Saturday last.The Mark Lanigan led side packed a powerful performance throughout and coupled with the outstanding achievement of Aidan McCormack in scoring 19 pts in a minor final put the issue beyond doubt.He was undoubtedly the Man of the Match,surprisingly there was no MOM award presented on this occasion although it has been the custom in recent years.
This panel of players and Seamus,Tommy,Noel & Paul had worked extremely hard over a long season to be crowned Mid and County Champions.Heartiest congratulations to all concerned.
Mid Junior B Final
Our Junior Hurlers had an early start in Templemore on Sunday where they faced Knock in the Mid Final.In an exciting tussle they retained their title with a 7pt victory.A late scoring burst proved the difference in the end.Team captain Conor Stapleton accepted the trophy on behalf of a panel with a good mixture of youth and experience.It a was a title earned on the training pitch and we thank the management team of Trevor,Michael,Andy,Michael and Pat for all their efforts.
The team now move forward to the County semi final versus West champions Knockavilla in Clonoulty at 4pm on Saturday Oct 2nd.
