The Senior Hurlers have shed their winter cloaks and are in serious training for the forth-coming championship under the guidance of their Manager, Johnny Duggan, selectors Johnny Greaney and former senior player Sean Newell.
This year, the trainer is no less than Joe Reilly who in 1992 and 1993 guided them to the two County Finals. They are grouped with Sarsfield, Mullagh, Loughrea, and Craughwell.
In the League series, they have had wins over St. Thomas, Moycullen, Toureen (Mayo) Mullagh and Abbeyknockmoy.
The Carnmore minor hurling team played the first round of the County Minor A Hurling Championship on Easter Sunday at Craughwell. They beat Portumna, last year’s minor champions, with a brilliant display which resulted in Carnmore scoring 4–6 to Portumna 0–17. They did not have the same success on the following Wednesday evening when at a very wet and water-logged Craughwell pitch, they were beaten by Tommie Larkins on a scoreline of Tommie Larkins 2–12, Carnmore 0–9. They have two more group games to play, Athenry and Ahascragh-Fonenagh. Their mentors Declan Walsh, Murty Killilea, John Noone, Gerry Dillon have been putting them through their paces over the last number of weeks and will be keeping the pressure on to come out of the group.
The panel is: Derek Cooney, Andrew Flanagan, Paul Kilgannon, Rory leonard, Thomas Moran, Gary Dillon, Joe Garrett, Martin Kelly, Anthony Watso, Joe Flaherty, Dermot Casserley, George Hanley, Paul Francis, John Paul O’Connell, Cathal Hynes, Jimmy Noone, Damien Fox, Conor Glynn. Kenneth Murphy, Geoffrey French, Paul Dolan, Paul Doolin, Con Butler, Martin King, Alan Feeney, Liam Greally.
The lads send best wishes for a speedy recovery to Rory Leonard who was injured in their first match.
