Following Clonmel’s away win over near neighbours Kilfeacle the previous week, there was no Munster Junior League action over the bank holiday weekend with all the teams taking the opportunity to rest the aching bodies and re-charge the batteries in anticipation of the next wave of matches.
After the opening three league games, the Clonmel firsts currently lie in second spot on twelve points, one point behind table toppers St.Marys from Limerick in the 14 team division one table.
Their next opponents are Kanturk currently in fourth position on eleven points. The Kanturk game is at home and needless to say, the big focus for the home side is in maintaining the good start to the league campaign. Kick-off on Sunday is at 2.30pm in Clonmel.
