Junior hurlers make a tame exit

Our junior hurlers made their exit from the South championship, suffering a comprehensive defeat at the hands of our neighbours Cahir. We had hoped to at least make the semi-finals but we never looked like it on the day. In all honesty our performance could only be described as lame and tame. We never really took the fight to the Cahir lads and they were deserving winners. Whilst it is true that we were once again short the services of several key players, it must be conceded that some of our lads barely participated. Still we had fine performances from several of the younger players.

In truth, we have about half a dozen fairly experienced players, good leaders on the field, plus a batch of fine and promising younger guys, some of whom have real potential. We have reason to be optimistic, though cautiously so.

Once again the minds of committee members are turning to all those seasonal tasks that need to be done to keep our fine nine-acre site in decent shape and looking respectable. Some of the main projects include further fencing around the perimeter and major re-construction work at the main entrance. This latter task is an absolute imperative in the interest of public safety. There is much work to be done. It is intended that the first of these jobs will commence before the end of this month
