Our boys & girls took part in the INTO Mini 7s hurling competition today (21/04/2015). The boys performed superbly, beating a strong Buttevant team to get the final against Charleville CBS. The final was a very close affair, with both teams exchanging some fine scores. The match seemed to be ours until Charleville launched their final attack. With the final puck of the game, they scored a goal winning the game by two points. Unlucky to have lost, our boys can be extremely proud of themselves. The panel was made up of David, Rhys, Garry, Kevin, Cormac, Seán O’D, Jacob, Seán O’C, Rowan, Niall, Patrick and Ben.
A Huge Congratulations!!!
