Sciath na Scol Hurling Scol – Hurling 18.5.2016

Three schools in our section, Dungourney, Inch and ourselves have ended up with 3 wins out of 4 matches.  A draw took place in the Scol office yesterday, which left the following:

  • We play Inch today.
  • The winners today go through to semi-final V Conna on Monday.
  • The losers today play Dungourney on Friday.
  • The winners of that game will play Ballintotas on Monday in a second semi-final.
  • Finals take place sometime between 30th May and 10th June – if we get that far. Let’s hope we do!
  • Gach ádh, a bhuachaillí! (Best of luck, boys!)
