We travelled to Kill last Saturday to play a much fancied Ballygunner in the Quarter final of the County hurling Championship, this was a very good game of hurling with our lads running themselves in to ground to play the very good system that our management had in store for the game, from 1 to 19 trough out the year these young men have given their all for the club with out any success, but yet for 50 minutes of yesterdays game we had Ballygunner in a spin. Well done to all who gave their all and still came up short. A big thanks to John Paul Keoghan, Kevin Daly and Declan Kiely for their efforts during the year. TEAM, T Taylor, G Donnelly, E Fraher, D Keoghan, D Murphy, K Daly, M Mc Donagh, J Duggan, L O Callaghan, C Duggan, M Devine, D Kiely, B Cullinan, S Crotty, J Devine, S Mc Grath, J Kiely, J Power, J Houlihan. QUESTION. How come so many of our so called supporters can go and watch other clubs play in Fraher Field and not make the short journey to Kill to support OUR MINORS in a County Quarter Final
Early on Sunday morning last we were in Fraher Field to play the u13 Western Final v An Gaelteacht. During the league section of this Championship we were comprehensively beaten by them so it was going to be a hard slog for our team to stay in touch. We led at half time and the game was in the balance with 10 minutes to go, such was the effort that our lads put in, but in the end we had to bend the knee and give way to a better team on the day. The progress that this group has made this year has been wonderful ,special mention to Chris Mc Govern for all his work. Well done to all concerned.
On Sunday evening we were back in the Fraher Field to take on Ballygunner in round 3 of the senior Championship. In a game of to many unforced errors while in possession ultimately cost us in the end, we put in a good performance against probably the best team in the championship and all is not lost as we have Ballyduff in the Fraher Field next Sunday at 7.00pm.
