What a great weekend the club had. It was almost perfect!!

Saturday morning in New Ross the under 14 boys took on Naomh Eanna in the premier hurling final having been beaten by the same opposition in the football decider the previous Monday.  These boys are a very determined skilful bunch and from the throw in were always first to the ball scoring some wonderful points from play.  They played extremely well throughout and despite some very dubious refereeing decisions they were always well in control of this game winning on a scoreline of 1.10 to 0.5.
Immediately after this game the juvenile hurlers lined out against Taghmon/Camross in the replay of the premier final which had gone to extra time in wexford park a couple of weeks ago.
We all thought that this would be another close encounter but the lads got off to a great start scoring two goals in the first ten minutes the first by Conor Coleman, the second by Joe O'Connor with Rory O'Connor adding a third before half time. The half time score was 3.6 to 0.5 and Taghmon were facing an uphill battle in the second half. The boys never slowed down their efforts and ran out winners on a scoreline of 3.12 to 1.8. Well done lads on a great double..

Sunday morning saw the junior hurlers take on Crossabeg/Ballymurn in the district final and they came out on top to win our third trophy of the weekend!   They will now meet Adamstown in the co. semi final..
Later in the morning in Glynn the under 16 camogie team took on Rathnure in the premier co. final.  This was a very keenly contested match with never more than a puck of the ball between them until the final five minutes when the Martins proved to be that little bit stronger and picked off a number of great points winning on a scoreline of 3.10 to 2.8.  This means the club has now won premier under 12, 14, and 16 with the minor not played yet!! (We are not forgetting the juniors).  What a great year.
Hard luck to the ladies football team who were beaten by very strong Offaly team in the Leinster championship
To have won the co. final was a fantastic achievement and to play in Leinster was a great experience.

The U12 boys very long season came to an end in Dublin also at the weekend when the U11 hurlers played in the Kilmacud Blitz where they lost out at the Semi Final stage after 4 tough matches. The lads will now have a well earned break - though the action continues for a lot of these boys with the Rackard League football now in full swing.

Next weekend is another huge one for the club with the senior men taking on Shelmaliers in the co. semi final
Let's get the whole parish out to support the lads.

Finally our heartiest congratulations to St. Fintans on their fantastic victory in the intermediate football final last Saturday.  There was nearly as much excitement as in croke park the previous week!!!! We look forward to meeting you in next years championship.
