Well done to our under 14 girls captained by Emma Codd who won the premier camogie final last Friday evening in Glynn Barntown  on a scoreline of St. Martins 3.11 Craanford 2.2. The girls gave a wonderful exhibition of camogie on the night scoring 3.10 from play which is a remarkable achievement for any team.  This same bunch of girls have also been competing in the Roinn 2 under 16 championship and are now in a play off against bannow ballymitty for a place in the co. semi final which will be taking place very soon and we wish them the best of luck. 

On Thursday, our under 9 and 10 footballers descended on Wexford Park for the finals of the Kent Cup.  The older boys, despite a gallant effort, lost to Kilmore who led the whole match through. However the under 9s then proceeded to win a real ding-dong game against Sarsfields. Though evenly matched in many areas the boys got goals at the crucial times and ran out 4-5 to 0-4 winners. Then, on Friday we welcomed Rapparees to Piercestown, where after 2 excellent hurling games, we won the u9 and lost the u10.

Our senior hurlers played Cloughbawn on Friday last in St. Patricks Park in the relegation semi final and came away with a good win to maintain their senior status for next year.  Well done lads.

The senior footballers play the quarter final of the championship on Saturday in wexford park and need everyone to come out to support them.

Also on Saturday the club are running a big cycling fundraiser with three different categories.  A 120 kilometre circuit and a 40 kilometre circuit for adults and a 5 kilometre fun run for the children.  We would ask everyone to be very generous in sponsoring all the cyclists as the monies raised will be divided between charity and the new surface we are putting on the hurling wall.  The club would hope to have the new surface down before the end of the year and then we will be able to train and play all year long!!!!! Anyone wanting to take part in the cycle or willing to help out on the day please contact Des Dempsey or Mick Morrissey.

Last Saturday the camogie club hosted a 7 a side blitz for the Stephen Bowe cup. Eight teams in all participated with Buffers Alley being the eventual winners of the cup, with St. Martins winning the shield. 

Congratulations to the juvenile hurling team who won their co. semi final on Saturday against Glynn Barntown  and now play Taghmon in the final on Saturday coming. (Busy busy weekend!!). We wish them all the best of luck

Finally congratulations to our former chairman Martin Quigley who was honoured in croke park last Sunday on the team "the stars of the 80's".
