These couple of days were very busy for our 13 hurlers. On Sunday morning they played Knockaderry in Dromcollogher with all our panel played extremely well coming out on top by a big margin. On Monday night our boys were on the road again to take on the fancied Askeaton/ Ballysteen/ Kilcornan team.
