The under 21 hurlers comfortably beat the Shamrocks tonight by 2-19 to 0-04. Playing with the wind in the first half we started well getting the first few scores thanks to some good play by James Sweeney and Bryan Dwyer. However we let the Shamrocks close the gap by conceding some silly frees, but in fairness it never really looked like this was going to be a close game with the score at half time being 0-12 to 0-03. The second half started well and two quick goals from Peter Mernagh helped to put the game far past the Shamrocks reach. We tagged on some late scores from frees along with some well taken points feom Liam Gahan and Larry Murphy to finish the game comfortable winners.
