There was an encouraging start to the defence of the county senior crown on Saturday evening in Cahir, with an impressive 15 point defeat of Galtee Rovers/St. Pecaun in the opening game. Playing against the breeze, Commercials led by 5 points to 1 at the break, before producing an excellent second thirty minutes which yielded 2-08. This is a great start by the team and hopefully now the players will build on this and continue the hard work.
The Intermediates commence their 2013 campaign with a game against Ballylooby/Castlegrace on Sunday 21st April in Cahir at 18.30. Manager David Lavin and his mentors are hoping that this year, the team will be competitive.
Commercials 4-22 Ardfinnan 1-05

The ladies junior team had a great win on Sunday in Clonmel against Boherlahan Dualla on a scoreline of 5-8 to 0-0. This was an impressive performance, in particular from Niamh Mackey, Courtney Lonergan, Sally Quinlivan and Sarah Ryan.
