Sunday’s county final will be preceded by the intermediate final between Clonakenny and Thurles Sarsfields.

Training Fund: A senior hurling team training fund has been established to defray some of the inevitable expenses associated with the preparation for the county final. Any support would be greatly appreciated. Please contact any club officer for details.

All juveniles are asked to wear their club colours proudly and support both teams – firstly at the Camogie final in The Ragg at 1pm on Saturday and then on to Thurles on Sunday afternoon for the senior hurling final. See you all there!

CAMOGIE

Junior A: We defeated Kildangan in the county semi-final over the weekend on a scoreline of 3-10 to 2-2. The final is fixed for this Saturday at 1pm in The Ragg against Toomevara.
