Scrap for the (Hurling) Wall - The massive response throughout the parish to the juvenile clubs drive to collect scrap for the hurling wall is proceeding very well and will continue for another few weeks. This response is a reflection of the benefits which the wall will have on skills levels. Since it came into use at the beginning of April it is being extensively used by all age groups. The scrap is being collected at the Piltown Glanbia yard and parishioners can deliver the scrap or if they wish it will be collected. All types of electrical appliances (except fridges and deep freezers) are accepted as well as scrap cars, farm machinery and indeed any metal object is welcome. It is an ideal opportunity to do a spring clean of yards and garages.
29 minutes without a free- Piltown juniors had an entertaining challenge against Dungourney from east Cork last week. A feature of the game was its free flowing nature. Indeed referee Domo Connolly did not blow for the first free until the 29th minute of the first half. For the record the Corkmen were victorious by 1 16 to 0 17. Piltown will be concerned that they failed to take any of the five goal scoring chances that they created. Team: P. Kenny, N. Brennan, A. McCarthy, P. Connolly, P. McCarthy, S. Kinsella, N. Kelly, M.

Skilful Under 12 Action - Piltown and Ballyhale Shamrocks played out an enthralling draw in an under 12’s challenge on Thursday evening last. Shamrocks led by 10 points at half time but the arrival of Billy Morahan tightened up the defence and proved the launching pad for a great second half comeback and with the last puck of the game Cian Kinsella levelled the scores when he rifled to the roof of the net from 20 meters to tie the scores at 5 3 to 4 6. The improving level of skill being shown in recent games is a credit to their coaches.
