Our senior hurlers were back in Munster Club action on Sunday when all roads led to Sixmilebridge to take on the locals in their own backyard.
On our previous meeting in Munster Final of 2013 we won the game fairly comprehensively but we knew on this occasion things would be much tighter. Having won the toss the Bridge decided to play with the elements and raced into an early lead. Continue reading
On Sunday the 18th the under nine hurlers went to Dublin to take part in the kilmacud Crokes hurling festival. We left the club at 7.30am with twenty six players and supporters.
We had two teams taking part playing twelve games in all throughout the day. We were very competitive in all our games, winning seven, two draws and two loses. Continue reading
Under lights at Staker Wallace GAA Club , Na Piarsaigh Camogie were crowned County Intermediate Plate winners , defeating Tournafulla 1-11 to 4-1.
An early goal from Jane Wilson and points from Rachel Considine and Claire Casey gave Na Piarsaigh a great start but Tournafulla hit back to lead by a point at half time.
The girls regained the lead soon after the break but two goals in quick succession had Tournafulla in control and leading by 5. Credit to the Na Piarsaigh girls though who produced a storming final 15 minutes. Led by experienced players Aideen McNamara, Gemma Healy and captain Claire Casey, we scored six points without reply. Ciara Hogan (1) Claire Casey (2) Rachel Considine (2) with the winning point, a long range free from Sinead McNamara with time almost up.
A great finish to the year for this team and well done to all.

The U11 hurlers travelled to play Eire Og, Cork in Ovens last Saturday
and having won 3 out of the 4 matches played returned home very
satisfied. Na Piarsaigh stalwart, Damien Quigley was instrumental in
organising the invite and great hospitality was shown to us in Cork.
Some tremendous hurling on the day from the group of 24 players and
special mention must be made for Wayne Kearns and James Naughton who
were immense , Vince Harrington and Ben Sheehan on the day. There
were some brilliant points scored by Jim Beary and Killian McNamara
and in defence Cormac Benson ,Conor Hartney and Conor Hourigan were
excellent. Our two camogie players, Aine O’Tiarnaigh & Sarah Stanley
showed they are more than capable of mixing it with the boys and James
Finn on his first outing with the 11’s showed great potential. Liam
Talbot is turning in some great displays in goals and Adam Jordan,
Andrew Stack, Josh Smith and James Linnane worked tirelessly over the
afternoon. Jack Wall, Shane Downey, Matthew McGann & Jake Walsh all
gave everything and the O’Tiarnaigh brothers, John & Gerard were
excellent on the day.
Eire Og and Na Piarsaigh at this age group are very closely matched
and we look forward to many more tussles over the years to come.
