Ahane GAA Club Notes:
Bon Secours Senior Hurling County Championship:

Dan Minehan ended the night with 1-03 while Tom Morrissey scored 0-12 points seven from frees. Ronan Fox also got his name on the score sheet with 1-01. Mark Donnellan got 0-02 while Adam Murrihy, Jack Butler and Colum Carroll all chipped in with a point each. Down the other end of the field Kildimo Pallaskenry scored a penalty and then got their second goal from a long range free in the second half scored by Barry O’Connell. Full time score Ahane 2-22 Kildimo Pallaskenry 2-16.
Woodlands House Hotel Junior A Hurling County Championship:
Our Junior A Hurlers started their campaign strongly too as they put in a great performance against Feenagh/Kilmeedy on Sunday. Going like for like in the first half the score at half time was 10 points a piece. Both sides continued their scoring and work rate throughout the second half but it was a late goal that would seal the win for Feenagh/Kilmeedy. Game ended on a score line of Ahane 0-17 Feenagh/Kilmeedy 1-18

Mr Binman U17 Hurling Division 1:
Our U17 hurlers played Murroe Boher on Wednesday 2nd August in round 2 of Championship. This was a competitive and exciting game. The visitors came out on top by two points . Round 3 game for Ahane is 16 August away to Garryspillane. Great crowd of supporters out last night to support our team and we hope you can come out again on the 16th!
Well done to our u11 hurlers who hosted Clonlara on Tuesday evening. We fielded two teams played two matches each. Thanks to Clonlara for visiting, to the u11 coaches for organising and to all the supporters who turned out to support both teams.
Well done to our super U11 hurlers who played in the Gaelic Grounds last Friday morning in the Munster GAA Activity Day. Fantastic experience for the boys and girls which they thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks to the organisers and to all the teams we played. Well done to the kids and many thanks to their coaches Padhric, Mike and John and all the supporters too! Ahane agus Luimneach abú! After their games they got a tour of the dressing rooms and the museum in the Gaelic Grounds!
U8 Fundamental Movement Skills Challenge:
Congratulations to our first group of u8 boys to complete their Fundamental Movement Skills Challenge. The mentos went down well but the AG Sports sliotar signed by the man himself Aaron Gillane was the real prize!
