Hard luck to our Senior hurlers and management on their 1-23 to 1-9 defeat to Cuala in the Leinster Final on Sunday in Portlaoise. A slow start left us with a big mountain to climb but it unfortunately was not to be our day. Its going to hurt but it will not dampen our club’s extreme sense of pride of each and everyone of the panel and management on another great year. You have been great ambassadors for club and county once more. Cuala got the start which we desired as they clocked up 1-8 unanswered by the 17th minute. A free from Ciaran Slevin got us off the mark before Conor Mahon finished to the net less than a minute later to leave it 1-8 to 1-1 after 25 minutes. Cuala followed with the next two points before another free from Slevin left it 1-10 to 1-2 and that was be the last score of the half. We were reduced to 14 men just before the half time whistle when Conor Mahon was shown a red card. The teams swapped the first couple of points of the half before Dan Currams was brought down in the box to give us a penalty. Unfortunately, Ciaran Slevin’s effort was brilliantly saved but we did get a point from the resulting ’65. That was to be as close as we got as the reigning All-Ireland Champions proved too strong and ran out 1-23 to 1-9 winners. Team & Scorers: Conor Slevin, Killian Leonard, Ger Healion, Enda Grogan, Kevin Grogan, Damien Kilmartin, Jordan Quinn, Thomas Geraghty (0-1), Ciaran Slevin (0-6, 4f, 1 ’65), James Gorman, Conor Mahon (1-0), Peter Geraghty (0-2), Stephen Leonard, Peter Healion, Dan Currams (0-1). Subs used: Alan McConville (for P. Healion, 46mins), James Geraghty (for J. Gorman, 53mins), Conor Quinn (for S. Leonard, 58mins), Brian Leonard (for G. Healion, 59mins) and Cathal Mahon (for J. Quinn, 60mins).
