JUNIOR A HURLING: Tough start to our championship on Sunday last, against a well drilled Castletown team. Castletown held the lead for the entire game and while we had it back to 2 points on a few occasions, Castletown were finding their scores a bit easier to come by when they needed them. Maybe with a bit of luck, we could have been in the mix at the end of the game. Final score was Caherline 1-12 Castletown Ballyagran 1-18. We face Garryspillane next on Sunday evening in Hospital, throw-in at 7pm.JUNIOR B HURLING: The East Junior B Hurling Championship kicks off for us on Bank Holiday Monday against South Liberties, throw-in at 3:30pm in Caherconlish.U-21 HURLING: Tough loss for the boys last Wednesday evening against Ballybricken/Bohermore/Fedamore final score on the night, Caherline 0-14, Ballybricken/Bohermore/Fedamore 1-18.
