U-13 HURLING: Our U-13's wrapped up their season over in Cappamore on Sunday, in the Slieve Felim tournament, playing Cappamore, Crecora & Sean Treacy’s. We had 3 very competitive games in the group stages and with 2 draws & a win, we got through to the Cup Final against Sean Treacy’s. That was a dinger of a game too, very even throughout, but it was Sean Treacy’s who took the win by a single point. Our lads were disappointed of course, but we couldn't ask any more of them, they hurled very well all day. This event marked the end of our season, many thanks to all the players and their parents for bringing them to training & games.
