                     The coming week will be an extremely busy one for Brian Dillons with three of their teams in Championship action.  First into battle is the Brian Dillons Junior (A) Hurling side , who face a tricky City Division Junior (A) Hurling Championship quarter-final tie against Na Piarsaigh, on Wednesday, 6th August, 2014, at the Ballinlough venue with a 7.15pm throw-in.. Brian Dillons overcame St.Finbarrs in the previous round of the Championship on a 3-17 to 1-17 scoreline, while Na Piarsaigh had a comfortable win over St.Vincents. Wednesdays game has all the ingredients of being a first class encounter and Brian Dillons will have to produce a top class performance ,if they are to qualify for the semi-final for the fifth consecutive year, as Na Piarsaigh are on a high, at the moment with their Senior and under-21 Hurling teams recording some notable victories, in recent weeks.
                   On Thursday evening,7th August, 2014, the Brian Dillons Minor Footballers are in Championship action when they travel to Passage to face Tracton in the opening round of the Rebel Og County Minor Football Championhip, with a 7.00pm throw-in. Team Manager, Keith Burns , will be hoping that his side will have overcome the disappointment of losing last Thursdays League encounter with Canovee,on a 4-15 to 6-7 scoreline, when Brian Dillons looked likely winners when they led by 6-7 to 2-13, with just eight minutes left in the game.
                  Finally, on Friday evening, 8th August, 2014, the Brian Dillons under-21 Hurling  team face Na Piarsaigh in the opening round of the City Division under-21 Hurling Championship, out in Ballinlough (7.15pm throw-in). Tommy Boland will be hoping that his charges will be capable of winning this game as they have lost only one player ( Tomas Lawrence), from last years squad and this years team includes a fair sprinkling of members from the clubs Junior (A) and (B) teams, who presently are League Leaders in the City Division Junior Hurling Leagues.
