The following Durlas Og notes were published in this weeks Tipperary Star:

Under 8 and Academy
Training as advised by mentors. 

There are only a few weeks left for training. If anyone would like to bring their children to the last few sessions of the year as a taster for next year, you would be more than welcome.  (Academy, Under 8 and Under 10)

Under 10
On Saturday, October 14th we will be taking part in a Monster Munster Go-Games tournament. It will take place in Doctor Morris Park,. We have entered 4 teams, 9 per team to ensure each boy plays all the games. This will be our final session of the year. 

 Under 12 & 14
Training as advised by mentors.

Under 16
We won the U16 A Co Final when we defeated Cappawhite in an exciting contest in Holycross on Saturday. Playing with the aid of a stiff breeze we opened the scoring with a Jack Lanigan point. A goal from Liam McCormack gave us some breathing space and we lead by 1-11 to 0 7 at the break. A resilient Cappawhite fought back in the second half but with our defence holding firm we still lead by 7 with ten minutes remaining. However a Cappawhite goal reduced the margin and set up a very exciting finish. We dug deep and showed a lot of character in the closing minutes and it was fitting that it was our captain Jack Lanigan who had the final say when he crashed the sliotar to the net in the final minute.

Full time score Durlas Og 2 19 Cappawhite 1 15. There were great scenes of jubiliation as Jack lifted the cup to record our first win in this grade since 2011.

Well done to our under 16 on winning the county final on Saturday last, a hearty congratulations to Thurles Sarsfields on their win on Sunday.
