Kilruane MacDonaghs Notes
Congratulations to the U-21 hurlers who retained their North title with a hard earned victory against Borris-Ileigh on a 2-17 to 1-18 scoreline. They hit an impressive 2-16 from play and came from six points down in the last ten minutes to secure the club’s tenth win in this grade and put them at the top of the roll of honour. Perseverance paid off for this group of hurlers who lost divisional finals at U-12, U-14, U-16 and minor and were eventually rewarded with a deserved triumph in the U-21 decider. Well done to the management team of Paddy Williams, Pat Shanahan, John Quinlan and John Hyland. In the county semi-final Kilruane MacDonaghs will play south champions Ballingarry.
The junior A hurlers play Moyne-Templetuohy in the county semi-final in Templemore this Saturday November 6th at 2.00 p.m. Check fixtures for confirmation.
Congratulations to the Kilruane MacDonaghs camogie team which defeated Thurles in the county junior final.
The monthly meeting of the club committee is scheduled for Friday night November 12th in the clubroom at 8.00 p.m. There is a very important agenda to be discussed so a full attendance is requested.
Last Saturday the juvenile club hosted its annual U-10 tournament. Victories against Drom-Inch and Carrig-Riverstown in the earlier rounds gave Kilruane MacDonaghs a place in the final against Moycarkey-Borris. After a competitive contest Moycarkey took the honours. In the plate final Carrig-Riverstown just shaded the verdict against Drom-Inch. Thanks to Austins Centra for supplying goodies for the teams, Michael Cahil and Dan Darcy who acted as referees, caretaker Pat Williams who had everything in order and the parents who did the catering. This brings down the curtain on the U-10 season. Thanks to the players and selectors for all their work during the year.
