Our senior hurlers did very well to overcome neighbours Ballingarry in their first game in the county championship on Sun. evening last It was a fixture that has always given us trouble over the years. The final score was Mullinahone 1-11 Ballingarry 3-04. Though we only won by a point we scored 12 times to our opponents 7 times but it was definitely better than losing by a point. We now look forward to the next round.
