Last week was a busy one for the Club, with no less than three teams in action. Then, on Saturday evening, the Club hosted the Junior A Hurling championship semi-final, between Shanballymore and Glanworth’s Harbour Rovers. The latter emerged as winners on the score-line of 0-13 to 1-8.
On Wednesday evening our Minor hurlers, who the previous week, had drawn their Championship game with Clyda Rovers, travelled to Mallow for the replay. After a keenly contested game our boys were unlucky to lose so narrowly on the score 3-13 to 3-14. In the Junior football championship, at Shanballymore, last Sunday evening, we were defeated by Buttevant on the score 1-11 to 4-8.
Our Intermediate hurlers, as part of their preparation for their forthcoming championship encounter with Eire Og, played two challenge games during the week. On Tuesday evening they gave a good account of themselves when defeating Mungret 2-16 to 0-15. At the home venue, on Friday evening, they defeated Blackrock (Co. Limerick) 1-19 to 1-18.
Friday 2nd. September. Junior B Hurling Championship V Glanworth (venue and time to be confirmed).
Saturday 3rd September Intermediate Hurling League V Watergrasshill at Watergrasshill 6 p.m.
Congratulations to Ian Butler who was on the Cork Under 17 Hurling Development team which lost by the minimum to Kilkenny, last week-end and to Cathal Harrington who was on the Cork Under 16 B team.
Wm Fouhy was the Club’s only representative on the Avondhu Senior Football panel which defeated Newcestown in Round 4 of the Co. Championship last week-end.
We extend best of luck to Marty Farrell (who has local connections) and the Limerick Minor Hurling panel in next Sunday’s All-Ireland final.
