JUNIOR A CHAMPIONSHIP: What an incredible day last Saturday was for our club - County Junior A Champions 2021! The first quarter of the game was cagey but tough hurling, as we knew it would be, predictions before the game saying there would only be a puck of a ball in it and it was certainly heading that way. We were up 0-05 to 0-04 at the first water break but we could only manage a single point in the second quarter, while St Kieran’s slotted three, to lead us at half time 0-07 to 0-06. We dominated a lot of the second half, keeping St Kieran’s to just one point in the third quarter and slotting over six ourselves to lead 0-12 to 0-08 with 14 mins left. To be fair to St Kieran’s, they are a good bunch of lads and did not give up...they were just three points behind heading into the closing stages, a dangerous lead for us. But deep into stoppage time, Jack Enright buried the sliotar into the back of the net to give us a 6-point lead and it was not long after that referee David Deady blew the final whistle to incredible scenes...Caherline crowned Junior A County Champions. BRIAN BULTER CUP: Our lads return to hurling this coming Saturday in Brian Butler Cup semi-final action against Doon in Cappamore, throw-in at 2:30pm, best of luck lads.

U-21 CHAMPIONSHIP: Our U-21's returned to action last Tuesday night against St Kieran's in Rhebogue and it was Kieran's who walked away with the win unfortunately. We were up at half time 1-07 to 1-05, our goal coming from Conor Martin in the sixth minute. Similar to our U-19 game against them a few weeks ago, Kieran's had a strong third quarter and hit the net three times in 4 mins to lead by seven at the second water break and it proved too much for us to pull back - final score, Caherline 1-11(14), St Kieran’s 4-8(20).

CAHERCONLISH TIDY TOWNS: We would like to thank everybody who helped us to achieve a positive Adjudication report for the National SuperValu Tidy Towns Competition.
