Table Quiz
A big thank you to those who supported our table quiz in Lizzy Langton's last Friday night and also thanks to Quizmaster James Clancy for doing an excellent job.

Junior Football
We were understrength against a strong Modeligo outfit last Friday night and it showed as we went down to a comprehensive defeat 6-17 to 3-6.

Waterford's exit from the senior intercounty scene means that the county senior hurling championship will resume on the weekend of August 8th when we play Ballyduff. It's been a mixed year for Waterford with continuing success and progress in the underage grades leading to pressure on the senior team to match Clare, Limerick and even Wexford by leading the way to provincial finals and Croke Park. Relegation to division 2 of the league will certainly do us no harm as the early season fitness needed to be competitive in division 1 is difficult to sustain over a long championship summer. Teams with big squads like Kilkenny and Galway can do it at their ease but trying to be competitive and also blood young players is next to impossible. I still think we will have a decent pool of players to choose from in two and three years time but the burning question is do we have any players coming out of minor level immediately physically ready to play senior intercounty hurling?

Deise Draw
Please ensure all monies are paid up to date to co-ordinator David O Brien for the Deise Draw as the July draw is fast approaching.

Monthly Meeting
The monthly committee meeting of CLG Tulach an Iarainn will take place on Thursday 17th July at 8.30 pm in the clubhouse.
