Our junior B’s travelled up to league leaders Staker Wallace junior A team on Thursday evening. Even though we were short a few players due to hols & suspension we gave a good account of ourselves in the 1st half. Stakers struck an early goal after Conor Moore had made a great save, the rebound was squirted in. We exchanged points through John Ryan & David Duggan before Daithi Clohessy hit the net. Unfortunately we let Stakers walk in a soft goal before half time to leave it M/B 1-05 Stakers 2-08. Karl Cusack pointed early in the 2nd half but Stakers got a foot hold & eventually ran out comfortable winners. Late points from Derek McKenna & Colin Brouder were only a consolation
M/B 1-09 Staker Wallace 3-17
David Quigley, Dan Ryan, Richard Laffan, Derek McKenna, David Duggan & Daithi Clohessy worked tirelessly all night.
Big performance needed for the Brian Butler cup semi final v Doon junior A on Monday evening in Doon

Murroe-Boher Camogie: Congratulations to our U14 girls who did their families, club and county proud during Féile last weekend in Limerick. Murroe-Boher were hosts to Four Roads, from Roscommon. It was a great occasion for all the girls and they will treasure the memories for years to come. On the Friday afternoon, we had all the girls line up and gave a huge welcome to Four Roads. At 2pm we took them on in our first game but sadly we lost on a score line of Murroe-Boher 0-3 Four Roads 2-3. There was great skill on show by both teams and our girls were unlucky not to score more only for some excellent saves from Lisa Dolan in the Four Roads goals. That evening we headed into the Gaelic Grounds for the parade, it was a great occasion to see the girls and mentors marching in the parade. There was great fun to be had in the parade and was one of the highlights of the weekends for the girls. On Saturday morning, we headed to Cappamore, where we lost to eventual finalists Ballinteer St. Johns, from Dublin. The score finished Murroe-Boher 0-0 Ballinteer St. Johns 1-7. Murroe-Boher improved from the previous day and made Ballinteer work hard for every score and were unlucky not to get a few scores on the board. The score-line didn’t reflect how hard Murroe-Boher had worked throughout the whole game and only for some excellent saves by Sophie Heelan, the score line could have been alot more. On Saturday afternoon, they took on neighbours Cappamore in their last game of the group. Sadly Murroe-Boher didn’t get a result here either, losing on a score line of Murroe-Boher 1-0 Cappamore 1-3. Murroe-Boher made a great second half comeback with a bullet of a goal by captain Niamh Clohessy, however they couldn’t get a score to level up matters. Overall even though the girls didn’t win any match they really enjoyed the whole experience and will never forget the weekend and the friendships they formed with Four Roads. The club would like to thank Mike, Geraldine and Fiona for all the hard work they have put in with the girls during the year and to everyone that made the weekend such a success. We would like to thank the host families and everyone for making Four Roads feel so welcome over the entire weekend. A great weekend was had by both teams, mentors and supporters. We would like to thank everyone that came out and supported the girls both in Murroe and Cappamore. It was great to see so many out supporting our Future Camogie Stars. Panel for the weekend was: Anna Madigan, Aoife O’Connor, Niamh Clohessy, Amy O’Halloran, Hazel Hourigan, Aisling Cunningham, Aoife Ryan, Edel Cunningham, Katie Heelan, Deirdre Crowe, Karen Cunningham, Sinéad McElligott, Anne White, Sophie Heelan, Orla Regan, Kayla McCann, Courtney Hannon, Jade Hurley, Lisa Meehan, Jayne Ryan, Theo Ryan, Meabh Bartley and Aoife Kinsella.
