Intermediate Hurling Championship.
Next Sunday 7th April will be Shamrocks first championship outing of 2019 when we take on An Rinn in the Intermediate Hurling Championship. Our last meeting in the championship resulted in a big win for the Gaeltacht men, so we will be very aware of their potential, especially as they had a one point win over Ballinameela in a high scoring game last weekend, so they have the advantage of a game under their belt. Training and practice matches have gone well under the guidance of new coach Brendan Coleman, but it’s vital we get a win to start off the championship. This could our last game in the hurling championship for a few months when the intercounty championship will take over. The game is in Fraher field next Sunday, throw in at 6.30pm. Come along and give the lads some support.
Deise go down in Croker.
They say that success breeds success, and though Waterford were certainly less than their best last Sunday, Limerick’s All Ireland success last August gave them a confidence and belief that was evident in the way they worked the ball out of defence and converted their scores. Although Waterford had goal chances that on another day they might have scored, Limerick always looked like they had enough firepower to keep us at bay, and in truth they were comfortable winners. Waterford will be disappointed that quite a few of the players did not perform on the day, but perhaps the experience of competing in a national final in Croke Park will stand to them later in the year. On that performance, however Waterford, have a lot of work to do.
