Well done to Thomastown U13 Hurlers who beat Annacarthy in the County Semi final. They now play the North Champions next Thursday at 3.50pm in Semple Stadium. Local support would be appreciated. Congrats also to Thomastown NS Team (Andy Byrnes, Niall Heffernan, Tony Byron and Shane Farrell) who won the West Final of the Primary schools Hurling skills. For their efforts they won a laptop worth €1000 for the school which Principal Brian Cahill gladly received. They then went on to win the County Final of the Hurling skills competition.
