Well done to our under 12 camogie girls who took part in Caman to Croker on Tuesday along with 63 other camogie team from around the country.
A great day was had by all and congratulations to everyone involved for showcasing Na Piarsaigh on the big stage☺
Our Senior Hurlers were back in Championship action on Friday night in round 2 of the competition when they took on Ballybrown in Claughaun GAA Grounds.
Playing against a strong breeze in the first half our opponents began well and matched us score for score.
All Star Shane Dowling made a significant contribution throughout the game especially from placed balls and duly dispatched an early penalty following a foul on himself.
It was our opponents who profited by our generous concession of space especially around the middle third of the field.
We had good points from Adrian Breen, Will O Donoghue and David Dempsey to keep the scoreboard ticking in the first half but we trailed at the break 0-11 to 1-5.
We began the second half in great style and had 1-3 on the board in the space of a few minutes to open up a 6 point gap, one which we held to the finish thanks in the main to a timely hook from Cathal king and a late point blank save from net minder Podge Kennedy.
Incdentally it was Adrian Breen who got our second goal which proved crucial and he went on to have a telling contribution along with Kevin Downes and David Dempsey in particular.
Another good battling performance and one which saw Kieran Kennedy, Cathal King,Will O Donoghue ,David Dempsey and Kevin Downes to the fore.
