We traveled to Newtownshandrum last Saturday night to play the opening round of this years division one hurling league and came away empty handed after a nine point defeat.

We battled hard in the first half and had points from Colman O’Reilly, Mick O’Donovan, Brian O’Reilly and a Jamie Sheedy free but Newtown had 1-5 in this half to lead by 4pts at half time.

The second half was a  close battle but Newtown where to prove the fitter team and where sharper in front of goal and picked off some good points to run out winners in the end 1-12 to 0-6.

Next up is a meeting with last years division 2 finalists Fermoy and we will need to up our performance to come away with a result.

Team & Scores: Aidan Herbert, Eoin McHugh, James Hayes, Jonathan Dennehy, Sean lynch, Eoin O’Regan(0-1), Brian Sheedy, Hallie Burke, Jerome Fitzgerald, Brian O’Reilly(0-1), Colman O’Reilly(0-1), Jamie Sheedy(0-2), Mick O’Donovan(0-1), Vincent Burke, Alan Sheedy, subs: Richard Burke, Dylan O’Callaghan, Robert McHugh, Anthony Dennehy.
