Senior Hurling

Saturday evening saw our senior hurlers get off the winning start in the league against Patrickswell at home. A strong all-around performance by what was a very young Na Piarsaigh side. This marked the competitive debut for John O’Keefe who lined out at corner back and a league debut for James Finn, the later having made his first senior appearance in the championship last year. Playing with a strong breeze at our backs, we went in at the break leading by 7 points. Half time score: Na Piarsaigh 0-13 Patrickswell 1-03. The second half was point for point with both sides cancelling each other out on the scoreboard. A solid performance all round with Dylan Lynch quietly knocking over 4 points and Ronan Lynch being very impressive from both frees and open play. The game also saw the return of Tommy Grimes to a Na Piarsaigh jersey having been away travelling for past 2 seasons. It was like the man had never left with him giving a dominant performance and midfield. Our next game sees us taking on Ballybrown at home next Saturday at 18.30. Final score: Na Piarsaigh 0-20 Patrickswell 1-11

Senior Football

Intermediate Hurling

Our intermediate hurlers went down to a strong Ahane team in the opening round of the East Senior League on Sunday evening. There were some encouraging phases of play throughout in what were very blustery conditions. A goal separated the sides at half time but we couldn’t seem to take advantage of the strong breeze in the second half. Our second game sees us taking on Cappamore at home next Sunday at 18:30. Final score: Na Piarsaigh 1-14 Ahane 4-14

Team: Evan Condon, Conor Richardson, Mark O’Connor, Padraic Heaney, Jim Beary, James O’Brien (0-02, 1f), Bradley Moran, Kieran Daly, Pat Gleeson (0-01, 1f), Kevin Daly, Evan Sweeney (0-09, 7f), Pa O’Neill, Josh Sheehan, Kevin Ryan (0-01), Marcus Hogan (1-01).

No joy for our dog, “Da Bould Falcon” in the Con and Annie Kirby Memorial Stake on Saturday night, as we failed to qualify for the semi-final. A big thank you to Timmy and Kathleen for representing the club throughout.
