Best wishes to all our pupils and past pupils who are taking part in Féile na nGael hurling and handball finals this weekend.

Following the drawn game with Camross, The Harps now have three points on the table from their opening five games. A match away to Castletown next Thursday, June 25th (at a venue yet to be decided) and a match at home to Rathdowney-Errill on July 1st are the remaining ties in this ACHL Division 1 for The Harps and with a bit of luck the momentum of the last two weeks will continue.
Intermediate Hurlers: The Intermediate hurlers are still in search of their second win in the Division 2 league following their loss to Borris-Kilcotton last weekend. This Sunday, June 21st they face Trumera at home in Durrow GAA grounds at 7pm in this final round of the league. Lets hope the lads can pull off a victory over a good Trumera side. Please come along and support them and be the 16th man.
Junior Footballers: The Junior footballers have finished the Division 4 league for this year after a rather disappointing finish to the campaign where they lost heavily to Killeshin before giving a walkover to Arles-Killeen in the final round. Hopefully they can pick things up going into the Junior A Championship on July 24th against Ballylinan. More details on that game later.
Junior Hurlers: The Junior hurlers maintain their Division 4 status for next year after beating Rosenalis on a scoreline of 1-16 to 2-11 last week. The final game against Clonad did not go ahead with The Harps being awarded the walkover. The Harps finished seventh out of the ten teams competing. The Junior hurlers will next play Rathdowney-Errill in the Junior A Championship on July 26th. More details later.
Minor Hurlers: Harps Gaels Minor Hurlers will face Clough-Ballacolla in Ballacolla GAA grounds at 7.45pm on Monday evening, June 22nd. Please come along and support the young lads. The June 25th fixture in the Kilkenny League against Freshford is uncertain as it clashes with the Seniors game with Castletown – so please check our Twitter or Facebook pages for news on any possible re-fixture details.
