Throw in is at 645pm in Doneraile, hope to see you all there.. Our lads met Charleville last Wednesday week in the first round of the Junior B Championship, which is run on a round robin format this year.

On Saturday last the Hurlers took to the field again in the Division 2 League Semi final which had all the hallmarks of a local derby.. It was a game of two halves with the second firmly belonging to ourselves. A personal tally of 1-6 in the third and fourth periods from Fergal McCormack along with fine displays by teak tough Gavin O’Sullivan at full back, Rory Downey and Alec Luttrell, before an injury ruled him out, saw Mallow run out winners on a full time score of 2-13 to 2-11. We wish them the very best of luck in this evenings Final.
