Hurling Club Notes – 21st July 2014

Published in Hurling Club, News


Our Seniors had another impressive win a fortnight ago beating County Champions, Wolfe Tones, in Mostrim. We are top of the Leitrim-Longford Hurling League with four wins from four games. This week we face Cootehill Celtic in Breffni Park in the first round of the Cavan 11-a-side League.


Well done to our U13's last night who acquitted themselves well recently at a hurling blitz in Breffni Park. There were eight teams involved on the evening from four different counties. Well done also to our U10s who had another fine win in the Westmeath League in Slashers last Saturday week against Fr. Dalton's of Ballymore.

U10's & U8's Blitz

On Sunday we hosted a hurling blitz for U10s & U8s with Wolfe Tones, Clonguish and new club Kenagh to participate. However, due to bereavement Wolfe Tones were unable to attend. Fortunately, St. Mary's of Carrick-on-Shannon stepped into the breach and a competitive and enjoyable day's hurling was had by all. Many thanks to those who helped in the organisation of this event and to the parents who continue to support our efforts in developing these young hurlers. We wish to express our condolences to the Lynn family in Edgeworthstown on the passing of Billy, father of ex-county dual players, Gerry & Jack. Billy was one of the founding members of the Wolfe Tones Hurling Club & will be fondly remembered by all hurling people in the county. Finally, best of luck to the County Minor Hurlers who will compete this Saturday for the All-Ireland 'C' title. The County U14s and U16s competed in Cross-Provincial Blitzes in Longford and Carrick-on-Shannon respectively on Saturday with the Juveniles winning their second blitz in-a-row this year.
