Silvermines GAA Notes
Double North titles
It was a memorable weekend for the club with not one but two North titles brought back to the parish. Our under 13 hurlers overcame a stiff Kiladangan challenge on Sunday morning in Templederry to clinch the North ‘B’ title by 6-7 to 3-9 (see report). Our under 13 hurlers now face Moycarkey-Borris on Saturday next in Annacarty in the county semi-final. (throw-in 12 noon). Best of luck to all involved.
It was then on to Borrisoleigh for our North U-19 ‘B’ clash again against Kiladangan and although we trailed by 1-02 to 0-12 at the break a tremendous second half performance saw us emerge as 3-12 to 0-15 winners after Darragh Treacy and Sean Nolan netted the all important second half-goals (see report).
Junior C Hurling
Silvermines face Borrisoleigh in Dolla on Sunday 10thSept at 5pm. Best of luck to all involved.
Under 17 Hurling
Our under 17 hurlers must do it all again following a tremendous North quarter-final clash against Roscrea on Monday of last week. Both sides remained locked at 0-19 apiece after over 71 minutes of hurling following 11 minutes of injury time. The game then went to extra time with the Mines’ trailing by 0-20 to 0-21 at the break. Silvermines battled back though to send the game to replay after both sides finished on 0-23 apiece. The replay will take place at 6.15 pm on Tuesday 5th September in Toomevara. Should Silvermines progress the north semi-final will take place in Moneygall on Thursday at 6.15pm with Borris-Ileigh as the opponents.
Under 15 Hurling
Hard luck to under 15 hurlers in the North quarter-final against Newport on Thursday last in Ballina. Newport prevailed by 4-7 to 2-7 having led by 3-5 to 1-5 at the break. A big thank you to all the mentors and players for all their efforts throughout the year.
