In the Dan Breen Cup Kilruane MacDonaghs have been drawn in a group with Loughmore, Thurles and Moycarkey. Commentators have already dubbed it the “Group of Death.”
MacDonaghs last championship encounter with Loughmore was in 2004 in when the sides shared the points in Moneygall. Score: MacDonaghs 1-15 Loughmore 2-12. The Magpies and Moycarkey have only clashed on one previous occasion in the senior championship and that was in 2009 when MacDonaghs had a 1-13 to 1-12 victory in the Ó Riain Cup in Templemore.
Kilruane and Thurles have become familiar foes in recent seasons. Their paths crossed in the championship in 2015, 2017 (twice), 2018 and 2019 with MacDonaghs recording a 2-24 to 0-18 victory in Templetuohy last year.
There will be a clash of club colleagues in the Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-finals. Craig Morgan and Darragh Peters line out on the Mary I side that has a home tie against a UL team that includes Cian Darcy. In another of the quarter-finals James Cleary is part of the UCD panel that has a difficult away assignment against UCC.
David O’Sullivan, Páidí Williams, Matthew Moyles, Cormac Doheny, Paul O’Neill, Kevin McDonald, Barry Shanahan and Fionnan Hurley were on the Borrisokane CC panel that lost out to Scoil na Tríonóide Doon in the Munster U19 ‘B’ hurling semi-final on a 3-21 to 2-15 scoreline.
The presentation of medals to the U12 hurlers will be held in the Complex on this Friday, 31st January night at 7.30pm.
