Hard Luck to the County U/16 team on their surprising  loss to Limerick last weekend.  They now play Cork in a must win game in Cork this weekend.

The junior b and minor panels will train on Wednesdays and Fridays. Our Junior team defeated Sixmilebridge in the Munster league on Tuesday last on a scoreline of 3-10 to 2-02. There were some great performances throughout especially from Zoey Gratton, Alice Darcy and Gemma Morris. Special mention must go to Holly O Brien who scored the ‘goal of the season’ when she expertly deflected a ball going wide past the despairing dive of the goalkeeper. Best wishes to Mikaela Gleeson who picked up an injury in this game. Also get well soon to Aileen Duggan who broke a bone in her hand. In our final group game of the Munster league we travelled to Tulla in Clare and unfortunately lost by four points. We are waiting for confirmation as to whether or not we finished second in the group and thus qualify for the plate final. Best wishes to Alice Darcy who picked up a knock near the end of the match. We would also like to say bon voyage to our captain Louise Hickey who is emigrating to Barcalona.
We are due to play in the Tipperary Under 18 seven a side competition on July 7/8. Details will be texted to players shortly. A big thank you to everyone who took part in the Guess the Score. We had a great response and winners will be announced shortly.
