A thoroughly entertaining Friday evening in the St. John's Park sunshine was made more enjoyable with a home win. Our boys ground out the result through hard work which is a great trait in any team, but they'll know there's a lot more work to do...and they won't mind that. The game produced some fine performances throughout with Ben Tyrrell, Declan Coffey and Vincent O'Grady putting in the hard yards and included a goal each from Jack Sheridan and Ethan Kerwick.
Monday evening produced another tough encounter for the boys as the overcame strong Kilmacow side 4-11 to 4-15 in Round 4 of the Roinn A League. Well done to all involved
Hard luck to our u14s this evening who exited the football championship to a formidable Thomastown side. The big ball will be put back in the press for another year now and the lads get back to hurling training at the weekend. Fair play boys
Well done to the Kilkenny Minors who opened their campaign successfully in the Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Hurling Championship on Saturday against Westmeath.

U8S GET READY FOR CROKE PARK
Graigue/Ballycallan came with 22 and O'Loughlin Gaels matched them...so 2 teams and two crossover matches in sun soaked St John's Park made for a great day. Referee John Sheridan brought the sun home with him from Syria and you could say that he went from the frying pan into the fire as he mediated between these two sides. Certainly Syria is good training for any referee!!! . These were important challenge matches before the U8 panel headed to Croke Park Tuesday to play Killoughy-Kilcormac (Offaly), home club of O'Loughlin Gaels stalwarts Hugh Mahon and Sean Casey. Thanks to all the parents who brought sandwiches and buns for our guests, especially Tracy McCormack and Ruth Comerford who served the food and teas/coffees.
Well done to all the u8s and mentors who played in Croke Park for the Leinster G.A.A. Activity Day. This is the 5th time in recent years that an O'Loughlin Gaels Juvenile team had this opportunity, and the lads enjoyed some valuable dressing room and on pitch experience on hallowed ground. Lovely hurling
A great night of handball was had on Wednesday night at the O Loughlins end of season tournment. Six of our O' Loughlins best took on our city rivals Talbot Inch. Every game was evenly contested with most games going down to the wire ! Also O' Loughlins stars, Rory Glynn and Cian Kelly won the U13 schools doubles on Monday.
A big well done to both players and also to Luke Hanrahan, Jacob Brislin, Sean Morrissey and Daniel McCormack who all put in a huge effort this year and it's really showing in the courts.
County chairman Martin Lawlor was on hand to say a few words and was thrilled with the standard of handball on view. The future is bright for both city clubs.
A special thanks to Mark Kelly from Freshco on the Dublin road for providing drinks and treats for both clubs. We would also like to thank Mark Brennan and John Morrissey for organising such a successful tournment
