Hard luck to our players who were beaten by Clonouty last Wednesday night in New Inn in the semi-final of Feile na nGael Hurling competition. Final score 1-2 to 1-5. Both teams were fairly even and at half time the score was 1-1 to 0-2 in favour of Rockwell. So Rockwell Rovers went into the second half with a 2 point lead, so all to play for. However a goal and a couple of points from Clonouty took the wind from our sail. Liam Fahey was in hard luck when he narrowly missed a goal in the dying minutes of the game.
