2023 Carrick Swan u13 A Hurlers

Our u13 A hurlers began their Championship on June 13th last year when we beat St. Mary’s on The Green by a point. Carrick Swan 4-08 St. Mary’s 2-13.
The following week, we travelled to Mullinahone and after another great battle we came out on the right side of a 1-point game again. Carrick Swan 1-05 Mullinahone 0-07.
Round 3 took place a few weeks later, when we travelled to Ned Hall Park to play Clonmel Og. We were victorious on the night on a scoreline of Swan 3-10, Clonmel Og 1-11.
This victory qualified us for the South Semi Final, which took place on Monday August 21st. In the Semi-Final, we would play Clonmel Og again, and it was another great battle where both teams served up an excellent hard-fought encounter. In the end, we won on a scoreline of Carrick Swan 4-06 Clonmel Og 1-07.
That qualified us for the 2023 South u13 A Hurling Final. The was played in front of a big crowd in Cahir on Saturday September 2nd where Mullinahone were the opposition. What a game, and what an ending.
The final 5 minutes were frantic and full of excitment with both teams going at it hammer and tongs. Mullinahone scored a goal late on that looked like it might have sent the cup to CJ Kickhams country but our lads dug deep, rallied, and struck a green flag of our own, right at the end to win the Cup. A super finish to a superb game.
Carrick Swan 2-13 Mullinahone 2-11.
South Champions!
The County Semi Final took place the following Saturday in Grangemockler where Cashel King Cormacs proved too strong for us on the day. Cashel King Cormacs 3-13 Carrick Swan 1-06.
The disappointing County Semi-Final loss was avenged somewhat in the South/West Hurling League Final, which took place in Fethard Town Park on November 12th when we defeated Cashel King Cormacs on a scoreline of Swan 2-06 Cashel King Cormacs 0-07.
