Our Junior"A" Hurlers began their 2012 League campaign with a 1-14 to 2-8 victory over Blackrock at the Tank Field on St.Patricks morning.        

Playing conditions were not conducive to stylish hurling with the Tank Field surface cutting up badly after overnight rain.Our side got off to a great start when Tomas Lawrence netted after three minutes of play.  At half -time we were leading by 1-6 to 1-4. The second - half turned into a real slog as ground conditions deteriorated. We led all the way and with time almost up we were ahead by 1-14 to 1-8. A late Blackrock goal closed the scoring .  

The Brian Dillons scorers were; John Horgan,(0-9) 0-6 frees;Tomas Lawrence, (1-0); Andrew Murphy,(0-2); Cian McCarthy,(0-1); Michael Colohan,(0-1); Dave Coughlan,(0-1)
