This team may have a game v Castlemartyr this weekend.
Senior Hurling.
The Senior Hurling panel is decimated with injuries at present which is very worrying as our first round Championship game v Killeagh is only two weeks from next Sunday. We suffered a heavy defeat from Erins Own last week in the Red FM Co. SHL. The absence of injured players is a huge setback in the teams preparations  for the May 3rd encounter.
Junior  B Football.
Nemo Rangers are coming to Rathcormac on this Friday evening for a challenge game against our Junior B / under 21 team.
Long Puck.
Congratulations to the Juvenile Club on holding their first ever Long Puck competition on Easter Monday. The competition was held in Bartlemy, starting from the spot where the Bride Rovers club was founded in 1928 and finishing at Garryantaggart Cross. Well done to all who took part, twas a pity that more adults and adult players didn’t take part but for a first venture it was a fantastic success. The Juvenile club also held a raffle on the day the proceeds of which will be sent to Fr. Seanie Barry’s Mission in Kenya. It was a great  fun day for all who took part.
