Last Saturday evening our Premier Intermediate Hurlers met with Knockainey in Bruff. This was
a must win match for our hurlers in order to avoid a relegation contest. With a 4 point to no
score lead within the opening ten minutes, it was an ideal start. Unfortunately, that was the only
time we were ahead for the game. At half time we trailed 1-13 to 0-9. A s[pirited second half
fightback led by a David Breens goal elevated momentum and when the scoreboard showed
the smallest of margins, it looked like things would go our way. Two points for Knockainey in the
dying minutes meant it was out of reach. Final score on the night Dromin Athlacca 1.18
Knockainey 1.20. Confirmation of the next fixture a relegation final against our near neighbours
Bruree is awaited. We will keep you updated on Social Media. Team lineup: Tiernan Ryan,
Peter Mc Mahon, Donnocha Higgins, Gerry Quaid, David Mullins, Mike Reidy, David Mullins,
James Kelleher, Sean O Leary (0-2), David Breen ( 1-0), Jason Lenihan (0-1), David
Reidy(0-10, 7f), Mark Fitzpatrick (0-1), Paul Neenan(0-2), Peter Ryan (0-1). Substitutions JP
Costello (0-1) for James Kelleher
