‘Must win’ game for St. Mary’s against Kilsheelan in South Championship

St. Mary’s

St. Mary’s


The Intermediates travelled to Holycross last Saturday evening to take on Drom and Inch in a vital county Championship Group match. A win was a must for us, but despite a brave effort, we lost out by three points in the end, on a score of 1-20 to 1-17.

We trailed by three points at half time, 0-10 to 0-7, and mid-way through the second half we got to within a point. However, a goal for Drom put distance between us again, and a goal with the last puck of the game by St. Mary’s best player, Seamus Kennedy, gave a reflection of the gap between the teams.

Seamus Kennedy contributed 1-7 of St. Mary’s total, with Gearoid Buckly scoring five points, Jason Lonergan three, and a point each for Alan Lonergan and Brian Carroll.

All eyes will now focus on the South Championship, and we take on Kilsheelan/Kilcash next Saturday, June 15th in Monroe at 6.00 pm. This is a ‘must win’ for us, so all support would be greatly appreciated.

Under 10s

28 boys took part in an under 10 blitz in Dr Morris park last Friday. All boys played excellent hurling on a very hot summers evening . This blitz was rescheduled from Saturday to Friday evening and to have 28 boys there shows fantastic commitment from both boys and parents.

hanks to all parents and drivers with special thanks to Mags Leahy, Paul Cagney , Ian Walsh and Jason Parker who stepped in to help Brendan on the night.
This group had a light training session on Saturday morning with another good turnout. With the field to ourselves the boys practiced free taking, striking, catching and spraying at each other (water, not sliothars!).

Training as normal next Sat 10--1130 am.

Under 8s

The U/8s headed for a blitz in Cahir last Saturday, and won all their three matches. It’s a credit to trainers, mentors, and especially the boys themselves to perform in this fashion. Well Done to all involved.
