History in the making! Our third adult side.

posted 2 Feb 2012, 13:27 by Unknown user
For the first time in our long history, Kinvara GAA will field a third adult side in championship hurling this year.
Joining our Senior and Junior B hurlers are our Junior C1 lads. And before anyone has any notions about it being for old and battered hurlers, be prepared. This is a most competitive championship, and well evident in the quality of games played in last years championship. Indeed, people would even compare it to the standard of Junior B hurling not so long ago.
So a great achievement to all the management and players involved, and maybe they will be the ones to bring a first adult county title to the these southern shores of Galway Bay for the first time in 37 years!

The Groups for the Junior C1 are as follows:
GROUP A             GROUP B 
 Clarinbridge    Barna-Furbo
 Ballygar    Moycullen
 St Thomas    Michael Breathnachs
 Kinvara    Tuam
 Sylane    Craughwell
 Liam Mellows    Annaghdown

Top 4 teams in each group qualify for the quarter-finals.

(Also, as in previous years, there is no league competition for Junior C1 hurling, only the above championship)
