Well done to the Tipperary senior team on another impressive victory last Sunday.
In the 6th round of the County League we travel to Kilcolman to take on Burgess on this Sunday, 9th June at 12.00.
In the first round of the championship Knockshegowna will provide the opposition in Borrisokane on this Friday, 7th June at 8.00pm.
The club is fielding three teams in the hurling championship in order to maximise participation. On Friday two of our teams go to Portroe with MacDonaghs in action at 6.45pm and Kilruane lining out at 7.30pm.
This group of players have had a very busy schedule. Our 28-strong panel made the journey to Clonlara for a Blitz with the home team. All the boys got a full game and enjoyed their visit to the Banner county. A trip to Puckane was next on the agenda. We fielded three 10-a-side teams, each playing three games. Two days later a party of 26 players headed to Ahane to play three games. The boys are improving with every outing. Thanks to all the clubs who proved to be very hospitable hosts.

In the replay of the North U13 hurling final Cloughjordan Schools had a 3-9 to 1-5 victory over Kilruane N.S. in MacDonagh Park. Cloughjordan had earned a late, late reprieve in the drawn game and made most of their second chance. After playing with the breeze they led by 1-6 to 1-2 at the interval. Kilruane made a great start to the second half with points from Michael Hennelly and a Cian Moyles free. Andrew Austin made a tremendous save in Cloughjordan goals. The ball was swept up field and John Hannan found the net. It was an uphill struggle for Kilruane after that and Cloughjordan emerged deserving winners. Well done to both teams. Cloughjordan will play New Inn N.S. in the County semi-final.
Cloughjordan: Andrew Austin, Johnny Naughnane, Cathal England, Alex Ryan, Fiachra Woods, David Austin (0-1), Tommy Burris (0-1), Thomas O’Brien (0-2), John Hannan (3-5) and Ailish Hannan. Sub: Liam Foley.
