This should be a spectacular feast of hurling and a fitting tribute to a great clubman who is still sadly missed following his passing last year.
Munster ChampionshipCommisserations to the Waterford Senior hurlers on their defeat to a resurgent Cork in the Munster Semi Final on Sunday last, the qualifiers beckon now for Derek Mcgrath’s men and we wish them the best as they try to regain the form of 2016 and progress to the All Ireland series.
Under 14’sOur U-14’s travelled to Limerick on Saturday last for the regional feile finals consisting of a three game tournament against Sarsfields of Galway and Burgess from Tipp, in the first game the Galway men proved too strong but in a very tight second game against Burgess from Tipperary our lads came out the winners by a point, well done to all involved.
