Senior Hurling
Our senior hurling campaign gets off to a tough start this Saturday evening at 6.30 in Fraher Field as we take on Mount Sion in the first round of the senior hurling championship. Mount Sion were convincing winners when we last met at the quarter final stage of 2013 and our lads are very much aware of the standard they have to reach to compete at this level. Mount Sion were surprisingly beaten at the semi final stage last year so it will not be surprising to see them come out with a point to prove.
    Preparations are going well for us under manager Terence McSweeney and we have received a much needed influx of youth onto the panel. Naturally it'll be three to five years before the current youthful crop are ready for senior hurling, but it bodes well for the future of the team. Throw-in again is at 6.30 and we would appeal for as many supporters as possible.

Deise Draw
The first draw takes place this Friday 25th April, please contact your local seller if you still haven't bought a ticket for this important fundraiser.
