Patrons Jigsaw: As part of the official opening of the new hurling wall last week, the patrons Jigsaw was unveiled which contains all the names of those who generously donated to this phase of the development.

Junior: Both our Junior groups were in action at the weekend with both teams losing out. Our Junior As played the final round of the League last Fri night against Borrisoleigh and lost on a scoreline of 5 - 20  to 4 - 12 with Craig Hilmi getting two goals and Niall Madden and Brian Maxwell getting the other two.

This defeat means we do not qualify for the knockout stages of the league so attention now turns to the North Championship which begins in the middle of June.
