GALTEE ROVERS ST PECAUN’S
There is lots of hurling action for our juveniles at the moment with matches for our under 12 A and B teams in their leagues while our under 14 hurlers are also up and running. Last Monday night our under 12 hurlers showed lots of class when accounting for Lattin in Round 3. Unfortunately Lady Luck refuses to shine on our B team and we lost out by a single score once again to Éire Óg. During the past week our under 14 hurlers recorded a good win over Lattin/Cullen and are now back in the points race for a semi-final spot.
No game for our minor hurlers last week but we can expect plenty minor hurling in the coming weeks while our long awaited intermediate hurling clash with Sean Treacy’s is fixed for this Saturday night in Cappa. This is a vital game against our Combo colleagues and we will have to be at our best to get a result here.
Well done to Andrew Morrissey and Conor O’Sullivan who are both on the Tipp senior football squad who are now preparing for Round 2 of the qualifiers. Last Saturday night we had a stirring performance against the Faithful county and hopefully we can repeat the performance against our next opponents.
This Friday is the First Friday of the month, Holy Communion Calls to the housebound as usual.
