Kilruane travelled to Kilkishen in Clare on Friday evening last to play Kilkishen in the second round of the Munster league. Both teams were evenly matched in the first half and Kilruane were 1 point ahead at half-time on a scoreline of Kilruane 1-06 Kilkishen 2-02. However in the second half, Kilkishen took control of the match as Kilruane struggled to contain them. Kilkishen ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of Kilruane 1-08, Kilkishen 5-09. The next fixture is away to Newmarket-on-Fergus on this Friday 20th.
