Under 21 Hurlers make winning start

The under 21 hurlers made the best possible start to their Championship campaign when they saw off the challenge of a resolute Deel Rangers side in the Gaelic Grounds on Tuesday evening.
With no fewer than 13 of Sean Stacks senior panel on show in the starting 15,it was expected that a strong showing would result.
However the men from the South West of the County had other ideas and proved a tough nut to crack.
First half goals from David Dempsey and Ronan Houlihan sent us in at the break 4 points to the good 2-04 to 0-06.
Our defence were expertly lead by Mark Buckley at full back, with a half back line of Michael Casey, Shane Dowling and Michael Foley showing well throughout.
Shortly after the restart we scored our third goal from the stick of Ronan Lynch who shot expertly to the net to open up an eight point gap.
Points were traded by the teams and despite a late Deel Rangers goal, we saw out a very good opening day win
Final Score Na Piarsaigh 3-11 Deel Rangers 1-09
Team: Evan Condon, Josh O Halloran, Mark Buckley, Kevin McNamara, Michael Casey, Shane Dowling(0-), Michael Foley(0-1), Gordon Brown, William O Donoghue, Thomas Grimes(0-1), Ronan Lynch(1-6,4f,65′), Eoghan Keogh, Ronan Houlihan(1-0), David Dempsey(1-3), Evan Egan. Subs Used: Conor Houlihan, Ciaran Keogh, Lee Coughlan, Evan O Brien.
