JUNIOR B HURLING: Goals win matches as they say and that proved to be the case last Tuesday night in Caherconlish against Cappamore, final score Cappamore 7-13 Caherline 3-13.Thanks to Derek, Micheál & Steve for looking after the lads this year.

U-14 HURLING: Tough loss for our lads last Saturday morning, losing by a single point to Pallasgreen. A slow start probably caught us out again, down by 4 points at half time. But to be fair to our lads, they kept Pallasgreen scoreless for the entire second half, we just couldn't convert the chances we had at the other end. That brings our U-14 campaign to an end for 2020 - many thanks to call of our players & coaches Paddy, Derek, Seamus & Peter.
