Hard luck to our Senior Cup team who
surrendered their Munster Crown and were beaten 3-2 in Thurles on Sunday evening
in horrendous weather conditions. The team battled really hard all day and unfortunately
were beaten by a narrow margin. Thanks to all the lads and their managers David
Raher and Michael Lacey for their superb efforts. We wish John Reynolds
a speedy recovery on his injury. Best of
luck to the team with their next venture in a few weeks’ time – the Barton Shield.
Well done to our Belvedere Cup team
