U-16 B Football:

The combination with Emly had a good workout during the week. They played a challenge against Arravale Rovers. This game will stand to the team when facing stiff competition later in the year.

U-12 Football:

The two sides we have in the Premier games both had two more matches during the week. On Monday last Rockwell Rovers were the visitors to Kilcommon. The team in the B grade were short a number of regulars on the evening but won a very entertaining game by a goal. The younger team were beaten in the end after giving a great battle. Thanks to William Ryan for officiating in that game. On Thursday evening we travelled to play Emly in there venue. On a wet pitch after some heavy showers, a great game of football was drawn, while the younger team were victorious by three scores.

U-14 Hurling:

On Saturday afternoon we played a Durlas Og selection in a challenge game in Kilcommon with the Treacy boys winning out on this occasion.

Well Done:

Some of our members had great success in other fields recently. An outstanding achievement by Conor Nolan, on finishing in the top ten in the world Irish dancing championships. This has secured him automatic qualification the next year’s world championship in Boston. Patrick Carey won the west U-14 Feile skills competition in Dundrum and has now qualified for the county final, while Shane Stapleton was just pipped for the long puck title. Also to four girls who played with us for a number of years, Clodagh Sheldon, Chloe Lenihan, Trudie Hurley and Niamh Sheldon winning the county U-14 Feile camogie title with Newport-Ballinahinch. They now go to Dublin in July to represent Tipperary in the Feile. Also well done to Clodagh on playing on the Tipperary U-14 camogie team, that won the first tournament of the year last Sunday in Rathkeale, beating Galway in the final.
