U-12 Hurling: Hard luck to our U-12 team who lost out by the narrowest of margins to Templederry last week, in the quarter-final. This game was one of the most entertaining U-12 games I have seen for a long time. It was end to end entertainment, with score for score throughout the match. Mid way through the second half it looked like we may have been getting on top, after a goal & two points in quick succession. But Templederry responded with a brace of goals in the closing stages of the game to win by one point (4-09 to 4-08). Both teams had improved greatly from when they met in the earlier stages of this competition in Shallee, where Ballinahinch had won by a single point. It was a great credit to both teams & their mentors for having all the players so well prepared & so well behaved on the pitch. Well done to Ballinahinch on a superb display.

U-12 Hurling Blitz: will take place this Wednesday in the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick. Best of luck to all our U-12 players. This is another great opportunity to play on yet another major County grounds.
