Minor hurlers start Championship this weekend

posted 2 Apr 2012, 14:41 by Unknown user
The Kinvara minor hurlers will begin their challenge for the Pier Head Minor B Hurling Championship as it kicks off this coming Easter Monday.

Kinvara do not have to travel too far for their first match as Ballindereeen are our first opponents with the game fixed for Ballindereen, Easter Monday 9th April at 3pm.
Also in the group are Oranmore-Maree, Cois Fharraige Aontaithe, Salthill-Rahoon, Mullagh and Ahascragh-Fohenagh. There will be nothing easy in this group and that is why it will be vital to start off with a win. But that will be tough, as there is never anything easy against our good neighbours in Ballindereen, and Monday is sure to be no different.

Kinvara will probably have 3 games before the break for the Leaving Cert, with the championship resuming again in late June. There are 7 sides in our group, with the top 4 finishers heading for the quarter-finals.

Many thanks again to Mike Burke of The Pier Head as he again is the main sponsor of the Minor Hurling Championships in Galway. Well done!
