The past month has seen the Junior A team progress tremendously well in the ACC City Junior A Hurling League. Their first opponents were Clarenbridge and Carnmore won the game on a result of Carnmore 2–10, Clarenbridge 10 points. Next, they encountered Oranmore/Maree and won that game very convincingly. The match was played in Carnmore and the final result was: Carnmore 4–9 points, Oranmore/Maree 2–6 points. Ardrahan was their next challenge and it was a tough game. The lads paced them with great commitment and spirit and drew the game. The final score was Carnmore 3–9 points, Ardrahan 3–9 points. It has been a very encouraging start to the year by the Junior A’s under the guidance of Bertie Linnane, assisted by Martin Sheridan and Sean Davoren.
The Senior team make their debut in this years Championship during the weekend of 9–10th May. They have had a series of challenge games during April and the lads are fit and ready to go!
We wish all the teams the best of luck in the various competitions.
