SENIOR CUP

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.
