Hard luck to Loughmore Castleiney on their AIB Munster Club semi-final defeat by Dr. Crokes in Killarney on Saturday last.
The scoreline of 3-16 to 1-5 did not reflect the performance of the Tipperary champions and, as usual, they gave a hugely committed display.
Well done to Dr. Crokes who will now face Clare champions, Cratloe, in the Munster final.
Saturday’s game brings to an end a long and successful season for Loughmore Castleiney at senior level and they can look back with great pride on the honour they brought to their own club and parish and the example they have set to other clubs about achieving success. They will be the team everybody will want to beat in 2014 but that’s always a good position to be in.
