The finals of the parish hurling league will take place will take place this Saturday in the main field. Starting time for the first match will be 2pm and not 2.30 as previously said. The B final will see Jake Kiely and Christopher McDonagh?s teams do battle while the A final will see Kevin Grogan and Thomas Kelly?s team go head to head. These two games promise to be good tough and exciting encounters. The skill and commitment of both sets of teams is second to none. What are especially pleasing are the work rate and skill levels of the younger players. It is the first year that the camogie girls have participated all of whom seem to be enjoying the experience and might now become a permanent part of the team make up. The A finalists will compete for the Horan family perpetual cup which was sponsored by Brendan and Sean Horan. It would be very difficult to run the league without the involvement of the School. Many thanks are due to Brendan and the staff at the school for their help in getting teams together. Refreshments will be served on the day so if anyone feels like coming to support our young players, the main field is the place to be on Saturday at 2pm. It is intended to start a similar type of league for lads in secondary school. Names will be collected in the next week of those interested in playing and teams will be made out also in the next week. Our U14 squad played in a four team tournament recently. Ballybacon, Clonmel Og and Mullinahone were the opposition. Not having played a lot of hurling in recent weeks our lads did really well and qualified for the final against Mullinahone. In what was a very exciting game our lads just came up short. Many thanks are due to Johnny Cummins for organising the event.

We also wish Johnny a happy retirement but as was said on the day you never retire from the GAA. We wish the best of luck to the U18 camogie girls who play Drom and Inch in the county final next Sunday. It is hoped as many as possible will go to the Ragg to support the girls.
