The minor hurling league got off to a good start - with 2 rounds completed it’s maximum points in the Roinn A competition after wins over Naas GAA and Ballyhale GAA. The Minor B’s also had two games this week suffering a loss at the hands of Ballyragget but picked themselves two days later with a sold win over Tullaroan on Sunday morning.
It was a busy Friday evening with the Minor B’s, Junor A’s and Junior teams all playing matches at the same time. The Junior A’s dominated their game against Freshford at St. John’s Park to earn their win and out in Castlecomer while the Juniors recorded another win over Erin’s own in their League/championship.
Well done to all our teams – Lovely hurling.
