Minor Hurlers Lose Out in Lemybrien
Kilrossanty 6-11 Dungarvan 3-10
A finishing tally of 3-10 would win a lot of games but not on this occasion as Kilrossanty’s minor hurlers gave further proof of the progress they are making in both codes when they proved too good for us in Leamybrien last Wednesday evening.
- The home side lashed in three goals in a two minute period,( 17 to 19) to put this top of the table clash to bed early on a score of 3-3 to 0-3. Aidan Behan struck the first major and Anton Lonergan followed up with two more green flags. Our best forward on the night, David Flynn got one goal back for us in the 26th minute but Kilrossanty were well in control at the break on a score of 3-8 to 1-5.
Three became four in the second minute of the restart when Kilrossanty midfielder Eoin Power netted before Toby Talor gave the Blues some hope with a well taken 35th minute goal, 4-8 to 2-7.
However, when Aidan Behan struck for his second major for Kilrossanty, they were assured of victory. This goal feast finished with two more goals, Eoin Power claiming his second goal for the winners and sub Alex Shanahan replying for us.
Toby Taylor 1-3(1f), David Flynn 1-1, Tristan Loftus 0-4(2f), Alex Shanahan 1-0, Joe Duggan and Jordan Shaw 0-1 each.
Seanie McGrath, Wayne O Donnell, Dion Keoghan, Lorcan McGovern, Brendan Collins, Tristan Loftus, Joe Duggan, Jonathon Houlihan, Owen Morrissey, Conor Coward, Daniel Kiely, Tristan Loftus, David Flynn, Jordan Shaw, Alex Shanahan

Late Michael ‘Showery’ Flynn
The many friends of ‘Showery’ in the club and in the town were saddened to hear of his death during the week. Showery was a member of a family with very strong connections with the club for decades and his brothers , nephews and cousins all wore the Blue jersey.
Showery was a native of Caseyville and he played with them on many a street league hurling team in the 1960’s. He always followed the club’s fortunes with a keen interest and he was a big help to us when we staged our darts fundraiser with the Brickeys two years ago.
The club extends its sincere sympathy to Showery’s family at this very sad time for them.
