Hurlers go Down

Sunday last in Semple Stadium was a very bad day for our local hurling supporters, as our senior hurlers went down to Loughmore by 3.22 to 0.14, a margin of 17 points. Early in the season when the team played badly to lose to Ballina in the county championship, supporters were fearful of what the rest of the season might bring. However, as the season progressed,so didMullinahone in the South Championship, even if their wins over Ballingarry and Swan didn’t inspire great confidence.  However, the wins over Killenaule and the return of some of our players from their summer in the USA raised hopes. The win last week over Kildangan which was almost let slip away revived early season hopes, but little could have prepared supporters for Sunday’s very poor display in the semi-final. Loughmore didn’t play terrible well against us and were rather wastful in their shooting as we were, but for all of that, they proved much better than us.

For a side that so much was put into during the year, the return was rather small.  Of course, there were some honourable exceptions during the year of players trying very hard, but too many appeared to coast along on the side willing to be described as senior hurlers, but not willing to prove it on the field. The amount of attention devoted to senior hurling only would seem to be upsetting to many both at the football side of the club and also to those involved at minor and under 21 level.  A revision of priorities would seem to be called for.
