Murroe Boher Camogie Club: Well done to our intermediate team who defeated Newcastle West last weekend. Next weekend (17th September) the girls play their last group game away to Croagh/Kilfinny at 12 noon. Hard luck to our U16 team who lost to Galbally last Friday in their first game. On Friday evening the girls played Bruff/Kilmallock in their second-round while on Thursday (14th September) the girls will play Newcastle West in Newcastle West at 6.45pm in their final group game. Our U14s, who have joined with Treaty Gaels, lost out to Ballyagran/Newtownshandrum during the week but a strong second half performance shows promising signs for their B plate semi-final against Ballybrown in Ballybrown on Tuesday (12th September) at 6.30pm. On Saturday, our U8s went to the county blitz which was hosted by Abbeyfeale. Next Saturday (16th September) we will host an U10s blitz – all volunteers and help would be greatly appreciated. Best of luck to all our girls – especially the U14s in their semi-final. Please support our girls.

Murroe Boher Bord na nÓg:  Our Under 13 hurlers took to the field in Boher on Saturday 2/9/17 in the Ryan Cusack Memorial Cup to take on our visiting teams of Ahane, Newport and Durlas Og of Thurles. The first match was against Newport where our lads had a blistering start leading 1-6 to 0-0 at half time. The second half ended 1-2 each with our lads winning the game 2-8 to 1-2. Our next game was against Ahane. Ahane put in a spirited display in the first half but our lads rallied in the second half winning on a scoreline of 3-6 to 0-0. As Durlas Og had won both their first matches also, the third round robin game was played as the final. Durlas og were a very well drilled team with fantastic hurlers. The first half ended 1-2 to 1-1 in our favour but we had to face the second half playing into the wind. The young Murroe Boher lads worked hard in the second half and despite a late goal from Durlas Og in injury time our lads had enough done and won the game by a point 2-3 to 2-2. The cup was presented to winning captain Euan Sheridan by the Cusack family. This was the first time Murroe/Boher had won this competition. Newport were the shield winners with player of the tournament going to Daniel Rossiter of Durlas Og. Many thanks to all who helped out on the day with teas, coffee, bbq, pitch preparation and for the fine spread of food for all our visitors. Well done also to David Hickey, Jack Nicholas, Michael Ryan, Michael Hourigan, Mark Nicholas and Colin Hackett who all represented Limerick in last weekend’s underage intercounty competitions.
