The club AGM will take place this Sunday the 27th of November at 3pm at the clubhouse.

Consolation to our Under 16 team who lost the Connacht final last week-end against Tooreen in Tooreen Co. Mayo. Overall the team put in a spirited performance, however the loss of C Laheen through injury prior to the game, the long lay-off since the Co. Final were contributing factors coupled with four further players receiving injuries on the day and required substitution further weakened the Abbey challenge. To be fair to Tooreen who have a strong panel of players, they took the game to Abbey early on with some excellent hurling and built up a commanding lead by haft-time on a score-line of 1-6 to 0-3. Abbey put in a much better performance on resumption of the second half, however Tooreen matched them point for point and ran out winners on a score line of 1-13 to 0-9 and we congratulation them on their fine win. Overall it has being a very good year for these young hurlers and will recover from this defeat. Special thanks to management team of Brian Cooley, Keith Ruane & Aidan Flaherty who put in a great effort over the year in preparing the team. For the record the team was A Devane, T Ward, J Burke, C Murphy, F Garvey (inj), N Garvey, P Cooley (0-2), C Mannion (0-2), K Garvey, D Flaherty (0-5, 3f), M Mills, C Mulry (inj), D Maher, E Loftus, G Moran, S Miller, M Finn (inj), L McCarthy, D Moran, B Loftus (inj), J Flaherty, C Laheen, M O'Brien, C Mannion. Special thanks also to the O'Donohue family for providing the food & refreshments for the team, it was much appreciated.
