                   Huge congratulations this week to our Juvenile hurlers who had a                 great win in the Division 1 County Hurling Final last Saturday against Glynn-Barntown in Taghmon on a scoreline of 1-10 to 1-8. 

This was a fantastic game between two excellent teams with great hurling on display. Well done to all the boys and their mentors who have put in a huge effort during the year. 

After an extremely successful year the  season is drawing to a close for the younger groups in the underage boys section. The U12 Hurling season came to an end on Saturday last with a Festival of Hurling in Bellefield, where our boys played Rapparees, Balinastragh Gaels & St Anne's. These boys have developed their skills really well during the year and all boys were involved in Division 1 of the Go Games where
the acquitted themselves very well.

The U10 boys have had an extremely busy season and followed up a hugely successful home Blitz with another very competitive performance in O Loughlin's in Kilkenny where a strong win over Craobh Ciaran from Dublin, was followed by the narrowest of defeats to the home side and Tipp side St Mary's of Clonmel. The lads were very tired going in to the Final game against James Stephen's, but having given everything in
all the games, lost nothing in going down by 4 points.

A quick turnaround then saw the boys take on Starlights in round 2 of the Sarsfields Tournament on Sunday morning in the wind and rain in Parc Charman. A strong showing against the wind left the boys just 1-5 to 2-0 behind, and they continued the good work in the second half to record a 7-4 to 2-5 win.

The U8 boys have now completed their season, and went out on a high last weekend. On Saturday a number of the older U8s accompanied the U9s to Kilkenny, to play in the O Loughlins Tournament and despite playing older teams played really well against James Stephens and Conahy, before two excellent tussles with the home side's U10 B team.
The experience should prove invaluable as these lads will form the nucleus of what should be a very good U10 team in 2013.

The season finale came 24hrs later with the Jack Berry League Finals day in Rathangan. The lads played St Mary's Rosslare in their final, and luckily got their game completed before the rain spoiled proceedings.

The very best of luck to the U14 boys and their mentors who take on Faythe Harriers in the Division 1 Hurling Semi Final on Saturday morning in  Ballymurn at 11am. These boys have been very competitive in both codes all year, and we all hope they go on to secure a final spot.
