 U15 Hurling Team.
What an achievement as our U15 hurlers played in a blitz in St.Finbarrs in Cork yesterday with Limerick, Tipperary & Cork City taking part in the blitz. Where we were 1st up against the hosts and beat Cork City 2-5 to 1-5, Losing to Limerick in the 2nd 1-7 to 1-4 and beating Tipperary in the 3rd game 1-10 to 2-05 to reach the final. In the final we pushed Limerick to the pin of their collar, but they collected the Blitz Title with only 5 points to spare on a score line Limerick 3-12 Kerry 2-10.
Well done to John Griffin and his team for the work that they have done with the U15's.
