Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Junior HurlingFriday night last saw the first competitive outing of the year for the Junior A hurlers as they took on Bunmahon in Kill, from the start Sion were in control and with goals coming from Stephen “Chucky” Coady, Sean Ryan and Ian “Galo” Galgey ran out convincing winners on a scoreline of 6-25 to 0-07 , Pappy and his team can be pleased with the win and also with the manner of the performance which bodes well for the rest of the campaign.
