It has not been the easiest of weeks in the club. The Senior hurlers have lost to Kildimo Pallaskenry and we are relegated to Premier Intermediate grade for 2023. We have Monaleen to play next Saturday the 17th at 5pm in Ballyagran but we cannot get enough points to stay Senior. Thanks to Captain Dylan Dawson and all his team and panel, Manager Damien Lee, TG Ryan and Brendan O’Brien and trainer Ollie Moran and Strength and Conditioning Coach Evan Mulcahy, Physio John O’Donnell and first aid Mike Duggan.
The team and management have worked and trained very hard this year and a huge commitment has been put in by everyone. I hope our supporters and club members respect the effort put in and give them all space to get over the disappointment of how the year has gone.
The Junior hurlers play Ballybricken Bohermore next Sunday 18th in Hospital at 1pm but like the Seniors we cannot get enough points to avoid a playoff. We will be in a relegation semifinal and will know next week who we will be playing. Thanks to Captain Barry O’Shaughnessy and his team and panel, Manager James O’Doherty, Jimmy Croker, Pat McGrath, Richie Fitzgerald, first aid Mags Brazzill Buckley.
The U21 championship starts in early October.
The U13’s beat St Kierans on Saturday by a goal and are now in the county final. Well done.
