U12 Hurlers continue with their busy schedule.

On Thursday evening St Martins U12s welcomed Clara to Muckalee for a challenge game. On a wonderful evening for hurling both sides gave their all and a fast flowing game ensued.

With both defence’s on top in the first half scores were at a premium. The game opened up in  the second half and the forward lines started to make some great scoring opportunities. A brilliant goal line clearance form Andrew Buggy mid way through the half kept the Martins goal in tact. Our midfield of Daragh Quinlan and Donal Coughlan again got  through a huge amount of work. The half back line of Darragh Coughlan, Dan Doyle and Jack Murphy really got to grips with their men in the second half. Up front Tommy Butler, James Carrigan and Justin Manning hurled well.

u12 V Ballyragget 4-7-13

St Martins U11s went to Ballyragget on Friday evening for their annual Phelan Stone and M&A Coaches Hurling Tournament. On a perfect evening for hurling the young saints played St Lactains in their first game and it was keenly contested. With Martins taking control of the middle of the field there was plenty of scoring chances and were mostly taken. In their second game Martins took on Thomastown. In a much tighter game scoring was lower and it was martins sharper touch in front of goal that proved decisive. The last game was against old foes James Stephens the intensity of this game was red hot with neither team giving an inch. As the game went on the exertion of the games started to tell and the intensity fell off. Captain Josh Dempsey received the honours from Ritchie Stone. The players and Mentors were treated to refreshments after the games.

Thanks to all the parents who travelled to all the games over the last few weeks.

U11s travel to Ballyragget.

St Martin’s U11s were one of 24 teams who took part in the St Patrick’s tournament. In a great first match we performed very well against O Loughlin’s and led all the way but a spirited comeback from the town team saw the sides finish level at full time. Our performance dipped in the 2nd match and we were thoroughly out played by St Lachtains.















Our final match was against a strong Athenry team  from Galway. In a great match the lads put in a much improved display and fought gallantly to the end but came up short.

A great days hurling was had by all and credit must go to St Patricks for the organisation they put into the day.

The visit of Crumlin U11 team


On a glorious sunny morning for hurling, St Martins entertained Crumlin U11s in Coon on Sunday morning. Before the throw in the Crumlin captain presented St. Martin’s with a commerative pendant. In an evenly contested match both sides gave their all and provided much entertainment. Great defensive display in the first half  meant St Martin’s only trailed by 1-2 to 1-0 after playing against the wind.  St Martin’s finished the game stronger with some long range points resulting in a great win for the lads on a score line of 3-2 to 2-3.

U-11s do us proud at 12 aside Blitz.

The Under-11 team recently took part in a 12 a side blitz hosted by St. Patrick’s Ballyragget. They played three games against James Stephen’s B, Lisdowney and the hosts, Ballyragget.

They played very well in all three matches, winning them all, with some excellent goals and points scored.

Rather than nominate one player, all players deserve equal credit for excellent team displays in all three matches, particularly against Lisdowney where they had to come from behind to win.

Well done to all.
