Our seniors were just pipped at the post by Kiladangan in the final group game of the county league last Sunday.A first half Kiladangan goal saw them open up a 4 point gap but we managed to claw this back to 2 points at the half time break. The second half was nip and tuck with the sides level going into stoppage time, however it was Kiladangan who stuck the last score to win by 1 (1-18 to 0-20). A draw would have seen us top the group and qualify for the final. Instead it was Kiladangan who progressed due to their better head to head record.
The junior hurlers rounded out the mid league with a 100% record as they recorded a 3 point victory over Clonakenny last Sunday. In a good quality affair which we led by 4 at half time the final scoreline was 1-23 to 3-14. Best of luck to the lads as they face Gortnahoe-Glengoole in the semi final tonight(Friday) in Drombane at 7:45pm. We will not be streaming this game online but tickets are still available to attend at the following link : https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/mid-tipp-gaa/
