ROCKWELL ROVERS GAA CLUB
WEST INTERMEDIATE HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP
Hard luck to our players who fought a tough match against a very strong Sean Treacy’s side last Saturday evening, August 11, in Dundrum. The final score was 0-12 to 1-19. Half time score was 0-8 to 0-13, so still all to play for until the last 10 minutes of the match when Sean Treacy’s scored a goal. This took the wind from Rockwell Rover’s sail. See sport section for more details. Best of luck to the players who play in the semi-final against Arravale Rovers in Golden next Saturday 18 August at 6.45pm.
Minor hurling, RR/Rosegreen V Aherlow/Lattin Cullen on Wednesday 15 August in New Inn at 6.45pm.
