JUNIOR CUP ADVENTURE ENDS IN MUNSTER FINAL

Our Junior Cup team of David Buckley, Sean O’Sullivan, Neil Power, Barry Hamilton, Graham Nagle and Alan O’Donnell headed to Fermoy last Saturday to represent our club in the Munster Finals of the Irish Junior Cup. Having already beaten Williamstown, Carrick, Clonmel and Cahir, the boys faced the Kerry champions Berehaven in the morning semi-final. The boys didn’t disappoint and came out of the blocks quickly to establish an early lead which they drove home. David, Sean and Alan secured the necessary points for a comprehensive victory setting up a Munster Final against a strong Castletroy team.

However, we started slowly in the final and by the turn, we were down in 3 matches. We couldn’t gain any momentum and we eventually succumbed to a 4-1 score line. Manager David Hayes was ultimately proud of the team’s achievements in reaching the Munster Final. The boys performed brilliantly in every round and represented our club with pride, courage and conviction. Each and every player was a credit to themselves and our club. Well done to all concerned.
