In the final round of the St. Canice’s Credit Union Senior Hurling League, St. Martin’s and Carrickshock measured up to each other in Tom Ryall Park.  While both sides traded scores in the early stages, but Carrickshock forged ahead.  However, mid way through the half  Martin’s got ahead for the first and only time in the game after a nice passage of play between Canice Maher and Robert Shore connecting with John Maher who finished it to the net. (1-4 to 0-7).  After that, St. Martin’s found it hard to get scores from play scoring 3 points from free’s.  However, their counterparts faired a bit better scoring two points from play while also converting three free’s and a 65 to leave the half time score Carrickshock 0-13 St. Martin’s 1-7.   Colin McGrath did very well in goal making at least four great saves throughout the match, he could do nothing about the goal that beat him as he was lying on the ground been attended to with an injury after making a clearance  Luke Maher got a consolation goal for St. Martin’s with two minutes left on the clock but it was a little too late as Carrickshock ran out winners on a scoreline of 1-24 to St. Martin’s 2-12.
