JUNIOR A HURLING: What a great game of hurling we witnessed last Saturday in Cappamore, as Caherline became East Junior A champions & Brian Butler Cup winners too. While we didn’t have a great start to the game & gave Ballybricken a healthy enough lead early on, we showed great heart & fight in the second half, taking the win 4-17 to 2-15.

SUBS: T O’Keeffe, B Kennedy, P Tiernan, S Whelan, E Balfry, D Balfry, W Hourigan, D Murnane, D Power, T Kennedy, J Heelan.
MINOR HURLING: Our Minors had a great semi final win against a dogged Southside Gaels outfit on September 17th in Dooley Park – goals in the first half from Robbie Holmes & Jack McElligott were what separated the teams at the end, but it was our work-rate & physicality that laid the foundations right from the throw-in. Final score, Caherline 2-11, Southside Gaels 0-11. TEAM: J Franklin (0-02(2*f), L Shanahan, D McNamara, R Walsh, J Moloney, N Tierney, D Murnane, J Kennedy (0-05(4*f)), S Erasmus, J Halvey (0-02), R Holmes (1-00), D O’Connell, J McElligott (1-00), C Enright (0-01), N O’Connor (0-01). SUBS: M O’Connor, C Hannan, M Hogan, P Ryan, J Carroll, C McGrath
U-13 HURLING: Our U-13’s came up against a very strong Patrickswell team last Sunday evening, who ran out convincing winners in the end. While it was a tough season for our young team, we’re very proud of them. A few of our lads have U-12 finals to look forward to, for the others, their season is over. But keep hurling lads, keep practicing, don’t put the hurley away yet!
