Hospital/Herbertstown GAA

IN round 2 of the intermediate football championship we took on Bruff in wintry conditions in Martinstown. The teams were level, 0-3 each, at half time before Bruff pushed home to win 1-10 to 0-4.

Over the last week the Bord na nOg committee has done huge work in our club grounds and field in having them looking well for Feile na nGael on July 5 and 6. It is hoped to have large crowds attending to support our own Feile team and visiting teams so come along to shout on our boys.

Bord na nOg would like to thank all who gave their time freely in helping with our bag packing fundraiser in Dunnes Stores, Childers Road.

Na Piarsaigh GAA

THE intermediate football team were in action in the second round of the championship on Sunday 23 against Cappamore in Caherconlish. Cappamore came out on top, 3-4 to 0-11.

The under 16 hurlers were back in action following the exertions of exams. On Friday 21 we travelled to Patrickswell to take on the locals. A strong first half enabled us to win out 5-11 to 0-6.

The Feile na nGael tournament is fast approaching and first up for Na Piarsaigh on July 5 will be Castleblaney of Monaghan who take on our girls at 2pm in the club, followed at 3:30pm by the turn of our boys, who host Cork champions Douglas.

Old Christians GAA

WE travelled to Doon in the third round of the under 14 hurling championship. This game was played at great pace from the throw in and there was never more than a puck of a ball between the two teams. Final score Doon 2-4 Old Christians 3-6.

We played Mungret in the third round of the under 14 football championship in perfect conditions in Mungret. We turned a two point deficit at half time to totally dominate the second half and we ran out winners, 1-6 to 1-4.

Oola GAA

THE under 14 boys picked up another win in the championship following a 3-13 to 2-1 win over a South Liberties team who were short a number of players. Oola started well and built up a commanding lead, with goals coming from Cian O’Donovan, Bob Purcell and Paddy Quinlan.

The under 12 girls were unlucky to lose the A shield final against St Ailbes. Oola were up against a stronger team on the night. Well done to the girls for a great year and topping the East group. Also thanks to Caroline Bradshaw for managing the girls and getting them so far.

Pallasgreen GAA

OUR junior A footballers take on Ballylanders in the county semi final of the Junior Football League in Hospital. A strong first half from Ballylanders saw them lead at half-time by 0-8 to 0-3. In the second half Ballylanders consolidated their lead and ended out deserving winners by a score of 2-17 to 0-5.

On Saturday 22 our senior footballers played in the second round of the county championship against Monaleen. Pallasgreen raced into a strong lead at half time before Monaleen came out strong and clawed back the lead. Final score Pallasgreen 2-6 Monaleen 0-12.

St Patrick’s GAA

OUR senior footballers got off the mark on Friday 21 in a low scoring game against Adare in Bruff. Saints had a 1-4 to 0-4 half time lead but a purple patch for Adare in the second half meant it finished in a draw.

In the third round of the under 14 hurling league we hosted Hospital/Herbertstown in Rhebogue. We were behind at half time but a much better performance in the second half ended with Saints running out 5-5 to 1-3 winners.

The under 12 hurlers travelled to Knocklong to take on Garryspillane. The home team proved very strong but the young Saints kept trying to the end.
