“Bionn Gach Tosnú Lag”

The old Irish phrase “Bionn gach tosnú lag” “Every beginning is weak” might apply to our senior hurlers. On Sunday morning they went down at home to Silvermines 4.08 to 1.09.  Four goals shared among the “Mines” full forward line did the damage.  Scores were level at half time 1-04 each. Early in the second half, we were hit for two goals and after hitting back with three points, our rally was undone by the concession of another goal. On a very bad day for hurling, on a very heavy pitch our lightweight side found the going hard, but should not be judged too harshly. We lined out Alan Walsh, Kevin Walzer, Gary Cronin, Chris Horan, Donal Cody, Eoin Fennelly, Luke Mullally, Cathal Horan, Diarmuid O’Halloran, Sean Curran, Alan Curran, Jack Shelly, Niall O’Brien, Graham Horan, Joe Hogan. We also introduced a number of subs late in the game of whom Enda Keane showed the most dash.  We are next out in the Molleran’s Tournament during the week.
