We opened up our county championship campaign last weekend with a 6 point defeat to mid rivals Holycross Ballycahill. Although Holycross started stronger a goal 8 minutes in from Luke Shanahan put us into an early lead. Holycross slowly clawed their way back into it and they led by 2 points at half time. The first portion of the 2nd half was evenly matched, however a Holycross goal 18 minutes in saw them into a 6 points advantage. From this point they maintained it as Upperchurch sought goals to get back into the game. Final score was 2-16 to 1-13. Our next match is against Templederry in Semple Stadium on Sunday 13th at 3:30pm. It will be preceded by the clash of Killenaule & Lorrha Dorrha. Ticket & streaming details will be announced early next week.
