JK Brackens Juveniles

The under 12 hurlers resumed action in group 1 and group 3 in the past week with two games for each team. Team 1 had a hard fought win against Drom & Inch at home last Tuesday evening 11/6 but we lost heavily to an exceptional Durlas Og team on Saturday 15/6. Missing a number of key players on the day, the team tried very hard and hopefully can get back to winning ways on Tuesday 18/6 away to Upperchurch.

Team 3 have played two games but have lost to Gortnahoe and Durlas Og respectively. The performance against Durlas Og gives hope for the next few games in group 3, starting with Holycross away this Tuesday 18/6.

Both our under 10 and 12 hurling teams played South Liberties of Limerick in go games matches last Sunday morning before the Tipp v limerick Munster hurling Championship match. The teams played very well and displayed great commitment and skill in all matches. Thank you to South Liberties for their hospitality and we hope to host their teams in the months ahead.

The club would like to extend its congratulations to St Colmcilles on their marvellous success on reaching the Cumann na mBunscoil hurling finals in Semple Stadium. In winning the under 11 A competition the team became the first set of players from Templemore to lift an A hurling trophy. Well done also to the Under 11 team 2 and to the under 13 A team on their performances. Indeed the future of the great game of hurling looks reassured in the town!! On Thursday 20th June our U14 hurlers play Moycarkey/Borris in Clonmore at 7pm.
