Hurler wins

In the County Intermediate Hurling League. Moyle Rovers defeated Cahir by 1-8 to 1-5. Our goal was scored by Thomas Hill. A highlight of the game was an excellent long range free from young Kevin O’Donnell who opened his shoulder and sent the sliothar sailing over the black spot from all of 80 yards.

Minor game postponed

The South Minor ‘A’ championship game v Commercials on Saturday last was called off due to bad weather conditions.

On the county scene...

Peter Acheson and Brian Mulvihill played their parts in Tipperary’s victory over Leitrim in Thurles on Sunday last with Peter adding his regular couple of points. A win over Offaly in Tullamore on Sunday week would almost certainly secure promotion.
