Dissapointment for u14 Hurlers


Saint Martins and Piltown played their long awaited u14 Roinn B Hurling Championship Final in Ballyhale. In a championship that started with 17 teams both sides played their way to this final with some fine wins in what was a very competitive grade. On the day it was the lads from the south that finished as worthy Champions. The game started evenly with chances for both sides but Piltown took a grip on the game to leave the half-time score 1-9 to 0-2. Saint Martins responded in the second half to get well into the game and close the gap but a goal to Piltown settled matters with time almost up. Disappointment then for the Saint Martins team but they can look back on a great years hurling, winning the League , contesting the Feile Final and reaching the county final.  Bord NaOg laid on refreshments for the team at the Ranchers Return. Final score 2-10 to 0-8.

Oisin Kelly, Patrick Brennan,Matthew Shortall, Ciaran Nolan, Russell Kealy, Tristan Roche 0-3, Jack Farrell 0-1,Shane o Neill 0-1, Thomas Lalor Capt., Josh Dempsey 0-2, Bill Dowling, Shane Fahey 0-1, Luke Burke, Joseph Reid, Cillian Bryan.Niall Shore,Kyle Walsh (used) , Tommy Flynn,Cathal Keegan, Aaron Meany,Rory Buggy, Conor Egan, Thaigh Gill, Conor Dooley.

League Champions


Saint Martins are Roinn B Champions for 2016 after a good win against Tullogher Rosbercon in a well contested  game in Danesfort. Martins lost the toss and had to contend with a strong wind in the opening half and this they did with some heroic defending from Patrick Brennan, Matthew Shorthall, and Ciaran Nolan outside them Russel Kealy, Tristan Roche  and Jack Farrell stood strong and resolute. Oisin Kelly somehow kept his goal intact with a great save from a deflected shot . The half time score was 0-6 to 1-0 in favour of the lads from the South. Wind assisted Martins took a grip at midfield early in the second half with Shane O Neill and Thomas Lawlor giving it everything in pursuit of victory.Up front the half forwards Josh Dempsey, Bill Dowling and Shane Fahy combined well with the inside line of Luke Burke, Joseph Reid and Cillian Bryan and a return of 1-8 was testament to their teamwork and skill on the day. Final score 2-8 to 0-8 from two skillfull sides. Captain Thomas Lawlor stressed the importance of the panel in the victory, and thanked the mentors. also Tullogher Rosbercon were complimented on their performance.   Scorers Luke 2-0, Josh 0-4,Tristan,Russell, Joseph,Thomas 0-1 each
