On Thursday last our under 14 hurlers were defeated by Carrick Davins in the South Tipperary semi final played in Fethard. The final score was 3-17 to 4-3.
We compliment our players on reaching the semi final with such a young team as only five players will be over age next year. Thanks to Micheál Broderick, Liam Boland and Tony O’Brien for the time and effort they put into preparing this team. Thanks to the parents who transported the players all over South Tipperary.
On Sunday week last our under 12 hurling team travelled to Dublin for the all Ireland hurling semi finals in Croke Park. Arriving in Dublin our under 12 team first travelled to Molbi Road for a game of their own against the u12 hurling team of the Na Fianna club. A very enjoyable game was had with St. Patrick’s winning the game by narrowest of margins St. Patrick’s 2-5 to Na Fianna 2-4. Refreshments were provided by the Na Fianna so all stomachs were filled before we made the short journey to Croke Park.
