KILKENNY V WEXFORD PARKING
The Wexford supporters left St. Johns Park last Sunday evening fed and watered thanks to great volunteers at O'Loughlin Gaels GAA…… and they're salivating for a June encounter. They'll be worried about our man though...another good performance by Paddy Deegan which included a magnificent point. Maith thu Paddy! A big thanks to all those who helped out around St. Johns Park contributing to Nowlan Park continuing to be a great venue for the big games. Now we look forward to doing it all over again on April 16th when Tipperary and Wexford Supporters roll in for the League Semi-Final. Lovely hurling.
O'Loughlin Gaels 2-14 to 1-10 Erin's Own
A good win for the u16A's this evening at St. John's Park was helped by two goals one in each half. Jack Sheridan whipped in the first with a sweet ground strike and in a tightly contested game it took a brilliant Conor Kelly goal 10mins from time to finally put distance between the two sides. Well done to all the lads who worked tirelessly throughout the field. There was a strong local support there and you can be sure that will continue as our teams compete throughout the season.
There was mixed results this week for the u16 B team. First up they had a fantastic win over The Fenians of Johnstown in Round one of the hurling league with a fine performance. Then at the weekend their second round encounter resulted in a defeat to neighbours Conahy. They’re all training hard together and will looking forwarded to the next few weeks of competitive action. Keep it up boys…lovely hurling
