There was plenty of games in the past week. Our Senior hurlers suffered two defeats but showed plenty of promise ahead of the Mid championship. They lost out to Thurles Sarsfields in the Cahill Cup on a 1-20 to 0-25 score-line. The Blues subsequently lost out to Drom in the semi-finals who now go forward to face Loughmore in the final, they having defeated Holycross in the other semi-final. That game takes place in Holycross next Wednesday evening at 7pm. We lost out to Borrisoleigh in our final league game on Saturday evening in a high-scoring encounter, 1-32 to 1-24. Our next competitive hurling action will be against Holycross/Ballycahill in the Mid quarter-final which is expected to take place in early July. It's back to the big ball this weekend as we take on Moyle Rovers in the Park on Saturday evening at 6.30pm. A win here will see us through to the Division One League semi-final. Our Junior A hurlers had a 3-18 to 0-14 victory over Thurles Sarsfields on Tuesday evening which sends them through to the Mid League Division 1 final where they will meet the winners of the Moycarkey/Holycross semi-final which takes place in Littleton on Saturday evening at 7pm. Our Junior B hurlers take on Moycarkey tonight in the Mid League Division 3 semi-final. This game throws in at Littleton at 7.30pm. The winners here will face Holycross who defeated Boherlahan by a point on Wednesday night. In juvenile matters we had three teams in Mid Final action during the week. Our U-15's retained their Mid title in Holycross on Sunday evening when they defeated Durlas Og 2-7 to 1-4. Kinnian O'Brien captained the team while Sean Burke (1-5) received the man-of-the-match award for the second year running. The boys now face the winners of the West final between Cashel and Aherlow. The county semi-final is provisionally fixed for Holycross next Thursday night at 7.45pm. Our U-13 (Group 1) footballers had a fine 6-14 to 2-6 victory over Boherlahan in Kickham Park on Wednesday evening. Ross Dorrrity and Pierce Deegan were joint-captains while Danny McGuinness (2-4) claimed man-of-the-match. Rockwell Rovers provide the opposition in the County semi-final which is provisionally fixed for next Tuesday night. It was disappointment last night for our U-13 (Group 3) team who were defeated 8-2 to 1-6 in their Mid final in the Ragg. This very young team will learn from the experience and come back better and stronger next year. Evan Corpez and Barney Murphy were joint-captains. The Mick Hogan festival of football takes place tomorrow in Pairc Shileain and Our Lady's pitch with the action getting underway at 10am. Brackens will have a team in action at both venues. And last but by no means least we must mention both All-Ireland winners last Saturday. BT Harps brought glory back to the town on Saturday afternoon when they defeated Wilton of Cork 1= to claim the National Trophy and no sooner had the dust settled on that news when we heard that Noel Joyce had landed another in Killarney as he captured the Senior Scor Recitation crown for the fifth time. Two magnificent achievements and well done to all those who continue to volunteer and promote all that is good in life and sport.
