We had two games last week, one championship and one league.  On Wednesday evening Ballyhooly was the venue for our opening round of the Under 21 hurling Championship where St.Dominic’s provided the opposition. On Saturday evening our Junior hurlers travelled to Fermoy to play the local side in the Cavanagh’s Fermoy league.  Unfortunately, both games had disappointing results.



Aided by the fresh breeze in the opening half, our boys led at the interval 1-11 to 1-8.  However, the Glanworth side came right back into the game in the second half to run out winners on the above score.

Team and scorers: Ian Butler, Tony Watson, Mattie Walsh-O’Grady, John Hunter, Richie Hurley 0-1f, Mattie Noonan, Timmy O’Sullivan,  P.J.Keating, Anthony Crowley, David Hunter 0-1, Paddy Pigott 0-1, Pierce Pigott, Sean Cunningham 1-0, Cathal Harrington 0-11(0-7fs), Sean Watson 0-1.   Subs. Paddy Hartnett for D.Hunter. Michael Caplice for K.Noonan.



After trailing by just two points at the break, 1-4 to 0-9 in this league game, our junior hurlers were , well beaten  in the second half, only managing to score just four points in the second half with the home side going on to win convincingly.

Team and scorers.  Dave Roche, Tony Watson, Will Coffey, Mattie Walsh-O’Grady, Richie Hurley 0-1, Michael Lillis, Fintan Daly, Anthony Crowley, P.J.Keating, Paddy Pigott. Richie McEniry, Tiernan Condon 0-5fs, Billy Hedigan, Eamonn O’Connor 1-0, David Kelly 0-2(0-1f). Subs. David Hunter for B.Hedigan.  Paddy Hartnett for P. Pigott. Michael Caplice for R.McEniry.

We got this week off to a good start with an Intermediate hurling league win over Sarsfields,  at Riverstown, on Monday evening. Having trailed at the end of the first half by two points 0-8 to 0-10, they went on to put in a great second half performance running out deserving winners on the above score-line.

Team and scorers: Dave Roche, Tom Monaghan, Will Coffey, Cormac O’Baoill, P.J.Keating Michael Walsh, Dylan Kent 0-1,  Sean Kelly, James O’Sullivan 0-1, Shane O’Neill, Peter O’Brien 0-9(0-6fs), Jamie O’Gorman 0-1, Cathal Harrington 0-1 , Wm.
