It has been a busy period for the club over the last few days with many of our teams involved in championship action.

The senior hurlers had a hard-fought 1-18 to 2-11 win over Upperchurch Drombane in the first round of the county championship in Templemore on Sunday.  We now await the draw for Round 2 where we will meet one of the eight beaten divisional semi-finalists.  This round will most likely be played on the weekend of July 22nd.

Our juniors travelled to Littleton on Saturday evening for a challenge match against St. Patrick's Drangan, with St. Patrick's coming out on top 2-17 to 2-9.  We are awaiting the details of our next fixture in the north championship.

Last Thursday evening the Clonakenny/Moneygall minor hurlers got off to a winning start in the mid championship, beating Gortnahoe Glengoole by 2-13 to 2-1 in Gortnahoe.  Our next fixture will not be until after the Munster minor final on Sunday 15th July, due to Tipperary's involvement in that game.

Our Under 16s were due to get their mid championship campaign underway against Durlas Og on Monday evening, but the match was postponed due to a bereavement in Thurles.  Our next fixture will be against Loughmore Castleiney and is scheduled for this Sunday in Clonakenny.

The Under 14 team were beaten by Roscrea by 4-10 to 3-7 in Roscrea last Wednesday.  The league stages will conclude this Wednesday evening, when Moneygall play Newport Gaels in St Flannan’s Park.  Following the last round of matches the pairings for the knockout stages will be determined by the final league standings.

Our Under 12s travelled to Templederry on Friday evening last and beat Templederry in the Premier 12s in an exciting high-scoring game, 3-9 to 4-4.  The group stages have concluded and we will now play Portroe in the semi final.

Finally, the juvenile blitz which was to involve our Under 10 and Under 8 teams on Saturday last did not go ahead as planned.
