Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha.

Under 9: Under 9 hurlers travelled to Dúrlas Óg on Saturday morning and played three very competitive games which wrapped up this season’s games on a very positive note. The last training session of the year will take place next Saturday morning and the group will close the year the following Saturday with a morning of fun at a very special location.

Under 11: The Under 11 boys took part in the Michael Hogan Festival of football. We had two teams taking part. One team played against JK Brackens, Fethard and Newport in Templemore. The other team played against Aherlow and JK Brackens twice. Thanks to both clubs for hosting the tournaments. Great fun was had with huge progress evident throughout the day. Thanks to all the parents for supporting the boys on the day.

Hurling training continues on Tuesday and Friday evenings on the new astro turf and hurling wall.
New members welcome, if anybody wishes to start they can contact us on 087-4086439 or through the club social media pages.
