Junior (A) hurling.

Our Junior (A)s played Clonoulty Rossmore in Golden on Saturday evening last. This was a great game in which both sides served up some very skilful hurling indeed. For the neutral it was probably very enjoyable but for followers of the teams it was very tense especially in the dying minutes as both sides vied for the scores which would ensure victory. In the end our lads emerged victorious on the score 2-18 to 1-18. Well done to all concerned.
