We beat Newcastle West in our first game on a scoreline of 1-07 to no score, while in the final game of the group we lost to Adare by 2 points. Final score Na Piarsaigh 0-01, Adare 0-03. By virtue of winning 3 out of 4 games, we topped our group. The semi-finals and final will take place on the 13th of April with further details to be issued soon. We done to all involved and we wish the group all the best in their preparation over the coming weeks.
