The girls had another hard-earned win on Sunday at home to St Kevins with a 4-2 victory. They got off to a great start when Shauna Hayes scored after 10 minutes and Katie O’Regan had another 10 minutes later. But St Kevins got back into the game with an opportunistic goal that got them going and within another 10 minutes had the game level.
It remained 2-all till half time. In the second half, the Killenaule girls took over from the start and created lots of opportunities but had to wait 20 minutes for a great individual goal from Shauna Hayes that gave them the cushion they needed. That was followed by a great team goal when Roisin Trehy found Katie O’Regan who passed to Edel O’Dwyer who finished with great skill. Killenaule finished strong and the game finished out 4-2.

It was a busy 10 days with our footballers going down and our hurling teams looking impressive. The minor footballers can consider themselves unlucky to get beaten in the South Final by a point. We had every chance right up to end but we missed a few simply chances from frees and play and paid the price. Best on the day were T Keavney, J Yates, J Feehan, Eoin Butler and J. O’Connor.
Our junior footballers got their campaign off to the worst possible start when we were completely off the pace in our first game against Cahir. The effort put in on the night just wasn’t good enough. Our second match showed a big improvement even if we were very much under strength. Our future in this grade will have to be examined. Best against Mullinahone were A Leahy, K Cleary, E Butler, R Loughman, R Hall, P Fennelly and man of the match our goalie J Dwyer who gave an exhibition of kicking out.
Our U15 Hurlers played a lovely brand of hurling in a challenge match against Dublin side Na Piarsaigh. The full panel got a run out and best on the day were T Stakelum, K O’Dwyer, D O’Connor, J Gleeson, M Walshe, G Browne and P Doyle.
Our senior hurlers are putting in a few good displays in the County League of late. We showed great fighting spirit against Obama’s team from Moneygal coming from behind to run out easy winners. Best on the night were A Conran, T Doyle, Mouse, N Dwyer, P Kennedy, N Bergin and K Bergin. We were never troubled against Upperchurch but we did play a nice brand of hurling. On the night T Doyle, S Browne, D Ryan, N Dwyer, K Prendergast, D Fanning, K Bergin and N Bergin excelled. Joe Mouse and Cathal Bergin suffered injuries and we wish them a speedy recovery.
Next up is football, when we play Galtee Rovers on Friday evening in Cashel in the first round of the County Championship.
The Junior b hurlers open their season next Wednesday and our final senior hurling match against Ballingarry is on June 8, in Fethard, at 7pm and we hope to see a big turnout of supporters.
Well done to our county representatives who are active on the inter county front at present. P Codd starred against Kerry, Bubbles is flying for the U21 Hurlers and of course Jimmy Feehan and Gregory Henry are through to a Munster final with the minor footballers.
Best of luck to all our players who are facing into their exams.
