Mullinahone beat our under-12s last week by two points but we came good on Saturday last against Clonmel Og. We were short some players on the day but the fifteen who played had a great game and you could not pick out any one player on the day as they all played great. The final score was Fethard 4-6, Clonmel Óg 2-5. We now play Thurles on Sunday next 19th April at 12.30pm in Thurles.

Our under-14s are to play this coming week against Moycarkey Borris. We had to withdraw the under-16 team as some players had no interest in training, you can only do so much. The juniors have played two games so far and are out against Thurles this weekend at home. Two junior players have left the club, Barbara Ryan to Moyle Rovers and Sinead Delahunty to a Dublin club.
