Our U16 Hurlers lost out to Cappamore by just a single point in the last puck of the game in what was a very tight and evenly contested game on Monday April 8 in Cappamore.
The Minor Hurlers (Naomh Brid) played Murroe-Boher Friday evening last April 12 in Caherelly. It was our first outing of the year against a strong Murroe Boher side that came away with a comprehensive win on the night.
The U12 Hurlers had their first hurling game of the season last Thursday evening against Murroe-Boher. We fielded a very young team and they showed great spirit to come away losing by only 2 points on a score line of 1-5 to 2-0 after a very competitive match where all the players gave a great account of themselves. Training takes place every Tuesday at 6.30 pm in Caherelly and new members are always welcome.
Thanks to all the players and coaches that turned out for the Paudie Butler skill training session last Sunday April 14. The session was a great success with a great turnout of players and coaches covering U6 to U16 age groups. Thanks also to all the parents that helped out with the refreshments.
