CLUB NOTES 24/03/24




Juvenile notes

Saturday 23rd our u13 football team played Moycarkey / Borris in the first round of the mid championship. In more winter like conditions and having lost the coin toss we played against a very strong wind in the first half. Moycarkey got off to the best possible start with a few early goals but great credit is due to the lads who never dropped their heads and with some great football brought themselves right back into the game with three goals of their own leaving the half time score Moycarkey 4 : 02 to L/C 3 goals.
With a great start to the second half and by half way through we had another 1.01 scored and closed to within a point of the visitors. Unfortunately soon after that our young team started to run out of steam against a more physical Moycarkey team who finished that bit stronger and closed out the game with a 6.05 to 4.01 scoreline. Great credit is due to this team who never gave up in true Loughmore / Castleiney fashion.
Our next game in this competition is on Tuesday next in Templetouhy at 6.30

Jersey Sponsorship

On Saturday morning Noel Morris made a presentation of a set of jerseys to the juvenile club for which we are deeply appreciative. We wish Noel every success in his new business and would encourage anybody who is looking at building or renovating to talk to Noel before making any decisions. Hopefully the new kit will bring the club much success into the future.

Senior hurling

The Senior team pictured before the match with mascots Joe Hennessy Loughmore NS and Oscar Brennan Castleiney NS.

We played our first match in the County League on Sunday morning vs Upperchurch Drombane and after an edgy start we were defeated on a score line of 13 pts to 10. More worrying was a couple of injuries that we picked up and hopefully the lads concerned won’t be out for too long. On the plus side, well done to Joey Quinn and Mikey Ryan who made their Senior debut for the club. Next up is a trip to Lorrha next weekend.
Tipperary u20 football

Congrats to Eoin O Connell and the u20 team who travelled to Quilty on Saturday and in very difficult conditions came away with a win 1-08 to 1-06. A very strong second half was the basis for the win as they were 5 pts behind three minutes into the 2nd half but resolute defending and a slicker attack saw them score 1-03 without reply in the final quarter. A trip to Leamybrien next Saturday is the final match in Phase 1.
Tipperary Senior hurling

John McGrath was on the bench for the League Semi Final against Clare on Sunday as Tipperary fell to a very strong Clare performance. All focus will now turn to the 1st round of the championship when we go to Limerick in 5 weeks time.
Ladies Football

Hard luck to our Ladies team who played St Pats on Sunday evening in Cuguilla but suffered defeat at the hands of a very strong side. Best wishes to Aine Treacy who went off injured for a speedy recovery.
