Kickham GAA

Hard luck to our senior hurlers who put up a great display against favourites Eire Og Annacarty in a closely fought West semi final on Saturday last in Cappawhite. From the throw in our lads took the game to the opposition and were deserving leaders at the break on the score 0-6 to 0-5 and were unlucky not to be further ahead. The second half began with Eire Og roaring out of the blocks and they were in the lead within minutes. A moment of controversy saw one of our players red carded, but our team spirit came to the fore as faced with nearly 20 minutes left in the half, down a man and 2 points, our lads did themselves and the parish proud as they matched their opponents and even came back level and indeed took the lead briefly before the efforts took their toll and the lads from Eire Og won 0-18 to 0-13, a final score that did not do justice to the closeness of the exchanges. We play Roscrea in Templemore on Sunday at 7.30pm.
