Senior hurling, in a year when we beat Kilmallock in the South Championship final for 2021, and started well in the league, we find ourselves relegated to Premier Intermediate for 2023. It was an unfortunate championship where we lost amatch by 2 points, losing a match by one point and drawing one. It was a close championship and the rub of the green was absent all year. Captain Dylan Dawson, and the panel of players put in a huge effort in training and commitment, with the management of Damien Lee, Coach Ollie Moran, Selectors TG Ryan, Brendan O’Brien and S&C Evan Mulcahy.
Junior A hurling, in our first year promoted we lost a lot of players to retirement and to the Senior team early in the year. Every team we played it was their first team, and we struggled to match up with some very good teams, losing to Ballybricken Bohermore on Sunday 18th. Captain Barry O’Shaughnessy, and the panel of players, management James O’Doherty, Jimmy Croker, Pat McGrath and Richie Fitzgerald put in a huge effort in trying to build the panel up.
We are now in a relegation semi final playoff, we would hope to see all our supporters there, we have young players coming through and we want them playing at the highest standard we can.
It is challenging having two teams in competitive action but we are looking forward to the challenge in 2023. Please support the players and management. It has been a difficult few weeks. The AGM in November will be the facility for any one who would like to get involved.
