Another day. Another final qualified for…You really could get used to this, couldn’t you? Up The Birds!

Our Senior hurlers beat Mullinahone on Sunday last in the South Semi-Final after extra-time in an enthralling encounter in Clonmel Sportsfield. We’ll play the winners of Killenaule and St. Mary’s in the 2020 South Senior Hurling Final. Well done lads.

Our Junior Camogie ladies qualified for our first ever adult camogie County Final when we  beat  Moyle Rovers, on Saturday, on a scoreline of 6-06 to 2-03 to qualify us for the County Junior B Camogie League Final. Well done, ladies.

Our Junior A hurlers qualified for our first South Junior A Final since 1995 on Saturday, also, when we beat Mullinahone on a scoreline of 4-12 to 3-07. We take on local rivals Grangemockler/Ballyneale in the final with the game expected to take place next weekend.

Our Minor B Footballers take on St Patrick’s on Tuesday evening in Kilsheelan at 6pm in our final group game. We currently sit top of the group on 6 points with Knockmealdown and St. Patrick’s joint-second on 3 points each.

Our u16 B footballers play their final group game on Monday against Clonmel Og, in Clonmel with both teams already qualified for the quarter-finals. This is a re-fixture with the game originally due to take place on Saturday morning last. The game throws in at 6pm.

Our u14 footballers had a great 6-point win in their opening football game of the year against Killenaule on Thursday night. Well done boys.
