Intermediate Football - The Blacks and Whites intermediate footballers bowed out of the football championship at the semi-final stage after being defeated by St Patrick’s Ballyraggett on Saturday last. The lads trailed by 2-4 to 0-3 at the break after weathering an early Ballyraggett storm. However they were unlucky not to be closer at half time due to some poor finishing and handling errors. A push on in the second half did not yield any great dividend and a stronger and hungrier Ballyragget side ran out deserved winners in the end on a scoreline of 2-8 to 0-3.
Junior Hurling - Blacks and Whites junior hurlers got their all county league campaign of to the best possible start when they defeated Carlow outfit Naomh Brid in Tom Walsh Park last Sunday.
