Hard luck to our senior hurlers who lost a tightly contested match against St. Anne's on Sunday in Wexford Park. While we had plenty of possession we just couldn't take enough chances but that will come in time for this very young team. Quite a few of the team will be out again on Thursday when our minors play Buffers Alley at 7.30pm (the game has been switched from Wednesday). The minors are now qualified for the key knock-out stages in the hurling and still in with chance of qualifying for the football semi finals.

The junior A hurlers play Cloughbawn tonight, at home. They lost to St Anne's last week and will play their final games versus Faythe Harriers next Monday.

Our under 16 boys travelled to Gorey last week and were well beaten by a slick Naomh Eanna outfit. The boys have challenge hurling matches coming up in the next 10 days against De La Salle, Waterford, and James Stephens, Kilkenny, so we wish them well on their travels.

On the camogie front, our under 16 girls came away with a win against St Ibars in their championship game on Wednesday last. Having started slowly they got into the swing of things as the game progressed and won on a score line of 2-9 to 2-3. Our  U16b team had a great win over Taghmon winning 4-7 to  3-4. With a very young team this was an exceptional performance. Well done girls.

The annual Tony Boggan tournament takes place on 16th August and details will  follow. Taking place at the moment in the Club is our Sports Challenge Camp where under 14 and 16 boys and girls are trying out 6 different sports up til Friday.

Sincerest condolences to Ned Culleton and his family on the passing of Decla, Ned's loved wife, on Saturday in Dublin. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.


Hard luck to Sarah O'Connor and Lauren Kavanagh and the rest of the county under 16 team who were beaten in the All-Ireland semi-final by a strong Galway team in Edenderry on Sunday.
