With the U14 championship fast approaching and pitches un-playable due to weather, 35 members of the U14 panel (pictured above) travelled to Connacht GAA Centre in Ballyhaunis last Sunday to play on the Croke Park sized Astroturf pitch. Rahoon Newcastle provided the opposition for four twenty-minute quarters where all players contributed to a great display of hurling.

The U14 panel are on the road again this Sunday travelling to Newmarket-on-Fergus in Clare for a challenge game and plans are to call to Cusack Park in Ennis on the way home to watch Clare V Kilkenny in the National League match.

Carnmore U21s take on Oranmore/Maree in Round 1 of the Championship tomorrow, 15th February at 2pm in Ballyloughane. Best of luck to the squad and their management team. Your support for the team would be much appreciated.
