Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
All IrelandThe long wait continues as Waterford hearts were broken in Croke Park on Sunday with Galway running out deserving winners in the 2017 All ireland Final, tough luck to everyone involved and though there may be disappointment now they can look back on the great season they had and build for the future with this young squad.
Minor HurlingThe Minor Championship continued on Wednesday night with another away game this time to Dungarvan, the first half was a tight affair with the Old Borough outfit on top going into the break with a two point lead 1-09 to 1-07, Sion’s goal coming from Alan Kirwan, the half time team talk had the desired effect as Sion took the game to the home side, a superb Jack Meaney goal following great work from Morgan Grace helped seal the result , final score Cnoc Sion 3-20 Dungarvan 1-14 , this result means we are now qualified for the semi final with the final group game against Clonea down for decision this week.
