The Bob Stakelum Memorial u.10 Hurling Tournament,

We travelled to Holycross last Saturday morning to take part in their annual under 10 hurling tournament.  We played well throughout, and reached the semi-final against Holycross, but unfortunately we did not make it through to the final.

We would like to thank Holycross for the invitation, and their wonderful hospitality, the boys thoroughly enjoyed  good competitive games, in lovely conditions. Go raibh maith agaibh.

Under 12.

Training as advised by mentors.

Under 14.

The final of the U13 Shield took place in Durlas Og on Sunday when we hosted  Moycarkey It was an excellent game that went right to the wire before Moycarkey emerged victorious. Moycarkey started well and led by 6 points after 15 minutes but we gradually settled and a James Armstrong goal just before the break meant we went into the break two points in arrears. Again Moycarkey stretched their lead to 6 but a Jack  Lanigan goal brought us back into it. Moycarkey pushed on again but an Eoin Purcell goal brought it back to 3 again. We threw everything at them in the last few minutes but could not get the equalising goal. Overall there were great displays all over the field with Conor Stapelton, Cian Stakelum, Jack Lanigan, Eoin Purcell  Paddy Stakelum, Cathal Hayes and James Armstrong very prominent. Well done to all involved on an excellent performance.

Mid Final Win for Under 16.

Our first team claimed the clubs twentieth Mid 16 A title on Tuesday in Littleton in  a terrific game with Holycross . We got out of the blocks early and by half time had a commanding lead of ten points. Holycross kept chipping away at the lead in the second half but we edged home by two when the final whistle blew. Loarn O Toole and Mark Purcell accepted the cup from the mid chairman Joe Sullivan to spark off great celebrations .This team now await the winners of the north final in the county semi final. Our second team still await news of their county final.

 

Best Wishes.

We send our Best wishes to Michael, Lar, Denis, Padraic, Ronan and the Tipperary team in the All-Ireland final replay.
