Results for our teams over the past week have been a bit of a rollercoaster.
Our Seniors lost out to Ballingarry by 5 points in the opening round of the Seamus O’Riain Cup on Saturday evening. A Ballingarry goal at a crucial stage of the first half, just before half-time, cut Swan’s lead at the time to 3 points and Ballingarry kicked on in the second half to win by 5. Unlucky lads. Our Seniors take on Killenaule on Sunday August 9th in Clonmel Sportsfield in Round 2 of the Seamus O’ Riain Cup.
