All County Jnr Hurling Final:
O'Loughlin Gaels 2-20 to 1:17 Piltown
Goals from Evan Walsh and Ferghal Brennan proved decisive in this win at Thomastown. Ferghal Brennans strike 10mins from time after a well worked move finally allowed the Gaels to settle and finish out 6 point winners and collect this trophy for the first time in 4 years. With such a strong panel available there were plenty of options available to management ultimately rewarding Conor Bergin the honour of accepting the trophy from competition sponsor Paul Kavanagh of JJ Kavanagh & Sons.
Well done all.

O'Loughlin Gaels 2-15 to 2-15 James Stephens.
It was a fair auld tussle in the heat of St. John's Park this afternoon with both teams taking their turns to dominate. O'Loughlins had the better if the exchanges in the first 30mins and led at the break 1-11 to 0-8 but the visitors came out in the second have in blustering form and working up a 4 point lead at one point. However the Gaels returned another spell of good form managing to level the game by full time. Looking forward to the 2nd leg of this fixture to be scheduled in a week or two. Well done all
Result: u13 A Hurling League.
Tullogher-Rosbercon 2-4 to 3-3 O'Loughlin Gaels
Another great win for these young lads that was hard fought and were fully deserving of these league points. Goals from.Fionn Lawlor Eoghan O'Brien and Joe Bolger were added to with a brace of points from O'Brien and a fine pointed effort from.the wing by Orestas Balsys. The defensive effort by the back six supported by a strong mid field pairing was without doubt the winning of this game however. Well done boys...lovely hurling.
Result: u13 C League.
Cloneen 1:10 to 2: 2 O'Loughlin Gaels
A very disappointing result considering the effort put in tonight by this group of players. Goals from Conor Daly and Stephen Butler were rewards for their good work. The game was there for the taking and on another day more scores should have come. A great defensive effort was led by Joe Bolger who put in a second consecutive nights hurling for his club. Well done to Jack Johnson who showed his metal and along with s few others like Conor Murphy, Stephen Butler, Zac Evans who also showed that honest endeavour does get noticed. Keep working hard and even harder and good results will.come. Well done boys.
Lovely hurling!...and football!!
