U21 CO. FINAL

It was not to be for our u21 hurlers in their Premier Co Final on Tuesday evening in Innovate Wexford Park. It was a tight tough game with only 2 points separating the sides at half time to St Martins advantage and our lads were still well in the game until midway through the second half when ur opposition scored the goal both sides were seeking. They kicked on from  there and we were defeated by 8 points having fought to the end. With12 of the starting 15 underage again next year the future looks promising.
