The intermediate hurlers were first out this weekend. They were playing Ballyfad in a largely unimportant match, with ourselves already through and ballyfad already eliminated. We won on a final score of 5-13 to 1-13 but the game was much closer than the final score reflected. It would be very difficult for us to hurl any worse than we did in the first half, whilst playing with the wind. THe half time score was 1-06 to 0-05 in our favour, which was very suprising given the performance we had given. The second half was a little better with John Breen scoring three goals to help us go to the top of the table. Our next match will be in two weeks against gorey.

The junior hurlers had a great win over St Fintans who were the table toppers before the match, winning on a scoreline of 2-14 to 1-09.THis was a very good performance and we showed great determination. We were way on top for the first half and managed to keep our lead all through the match.
