JCHC, Shamrocks 3-11, An Rinn 1-9.
Shamrocks Junior hurlers won their fourth round championship match against An Rinn last Sunday in Ardmore by eight points having been behind at half time by a point. Dan O’ Neill scored the goal in the first half, but a vastly improved performance in the second half saw them score 2-8 to 1-2 conceded which featured two goals from the experienced Eamonn Forbes, and this saw them run out winners by 8 points. The return of Bernie Kelleher plus Tomas O’ Neill helped their cause, and well done to all the players and selectors. So at the minute they have 2 won and 2 lost, and their next match is fixed for Bank Holiday Monday 4th June against Kilgobnet at 2pm in Cappoquin, and as this is Kilgobnet’s first team, and they have won all their matches so far, it’s a tough one for the lads. Best of luck to them. Panel; Sean O’ Neill, Martin Delaney, Thimas Baldwin, Michael Lucey, Mikey O’ Neill, Tomas O’ Neill, Ivan O’ Neill, Chris Murphy, Liam Motherway, Edward O’ Neill, Bernie Kelleher, Conner Goulding, Keegan O’ Farrell, Dan O’ Neill, Eamonn Forbes, Eoin Roche, Alan Kelly, Padraig Tobin.

Finn McCarthy RIP.
Na Seamroga CLG would like to offer our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Finn McCarthy, Tallow, who passed away suddenly last week. Finn was the first Chairman of the newly formed Cois Bhride Juvenile club when it was formed in 2001, and was an active member of the committee after that. An outgoing and colourful character, Finn will be sorely missed, especially by the farming and GAA community of the area. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.
