Well done to our teams this weekend who've successfully negotiated their paths to the next stages. The seniors prepare for a Semi-Final in two weeks time...The reigning champions were the first team out of the blocks this weekend and will have to wait on the results of next weekends replays before they find out who the next opposition will be. The juniors advance to this year's Co. Final after an impressive Semi-Final performance and they'll be up against favourites John Lockes. There's a week now to catch our breath and then it's minor championship time again when the lads are pitted against Dicksboro on Sunday morning 11am at the Kells Rd. Plenty of support will be required..keep an eye out for updates during the week. Hon the 'Loughs.

JUNIORS IN CO. FINAL
Result: Jnr C'Ship Semi-Final
O'Loughlin Gaels 2:17 to 2:9 Piltown
A very dominant second period has put O'Loughlins into this year's Junior Final. Sniping runs from Robbie Buckley and Jordan Molloy earned goals for Daniel O'Connor and Danny Lenihan respectively in the 2nd half as scores came from 10 of the O'Loughlins players including five points from John Doyle that will please the O'Loughlins management as they prepare their charges for the final. Well done all...lovely hurling
SENIORS MARCH ON
This Senior Hurling Co. Final game caught fire. After a pedantic first 30 minurtes where the Gaels struggled to build on their dominance the 2nd half kicked started with an early goal from Mark Kelly that gave O’Loughin Gaels that cushion to see out the game. O'Loughlins were rarely in danger of losing this but will need to build on the performance to be convincing challengers when it comes to the semi-finals. Another step successfully negotiated so onwards and upwards
On Sunday morning the u12s competed in the Conahy Jimmy Comerford Memorial Tournament and qualified for the knockout stages next Sunday morning. Best of luck to them.
