Peil na nÓg
The u-14 footballers were beaten by Lorrha in the final of the Peil na nÓg on a 4-6 to 2-6 scoreline. As in the drawn game Lorrha made a lightning start and had 1-1 on the board inside four minutes. An Aidan Boyle goal soon got Kilruane off the mark and at the interval they only trailed by two points. On the resumption an Anton Banaghan goal followed by a point from Robert Ward saw them hit the front for the first time. However, Lorrha responded with a goal and they finished strongly to take the title. Congratulations to Lorrha who were worthy winners and well done to the Kilruane MacDonaghs players who acquitted themselves well in both games.Team: Jamie Heffernan, Ian McSherry, P.J.

Well done to Seamus Hennessy was a member of the Tipperary minor hurling team which defeated Clare in the first round of the championship.
The parish league got off to a great start last Saturday. The first game ended in a draw between Tipperary captained by Jack Peters and Cork captained by Andrew Brennan. After a great tussle Limerick led by Aidan Boyle just got the better of Patrick Ryan’s Waterford. Thanks to Jimmy Cahill who refereed the games and to caretaker Pat Williams who had the pitch in splendid order. The second round will be played this Saturday with Dan Darcy as referee and all players should be in MacDonagh Park at 10.45 a.m. .
