We played our first game in the Shannon Challenge Hurling Tournament on Tuesday evening against a strong Mungret team who had beaten us earlier in the season. This is a 10 team tournament made up of teams from Limerick Clare and Tipperary. We got off to a flying start with probably one of our best displays of the season winning 5-3 to 3-5. In a real team performance with every player giving their all we went in leading at half time by 2-2 to 1-3 with our scores coming from Jack O Carroll, Oisin Kelly, Jack O Sullivan and Michael Ryan. Mungret went into a 2 point lead midway through the second half but our boys showed great resolve and finished very strongly with scores coming from Michael Ryan, Jack O Carroll and Jack Oliver. We had standout players in Cillian O Shea, Sean O Brien, Mark Nichola,s Calum Ryan and man of the match Stephen Moore who had his best game ever for the club.
