Senior Hurlers: The senior hurlers got a much needed win under their belt when they faced Borris-Kilcotton in the second round of the Palmer Cup on Wednesday last with a 1-19 to 1-16 win. The team play again on May 17th against Borris-Kilcotton in the Division 1 League. Best of luck lads!
Junior Footballers: Under the stewardship of Gabby Irwin the footballers are having a fantastic league campaign thus far. Topping the Division 4 table with three wins from three The Harps face a tough challenge this Tuesday evening, April 28th when they travel to second placed Graiguecullen in a seismic battle to stay top of the pile. The following Tuesday, May 5th they will host St Fintans in Durrow.
Intermediate Hurlers: Following their opening round Division 2 away win over Mountmellick, the Harps Intermediates hit a wobble on Thursday last against a determined Park-Rathineska losing by just 3pts. The lads are determined though to get it back on track when they travel to Camross on April 30th.
Junior Hurlers: The Junior hurlers have suffered two defeats in their opening league encounters. The first game away in Ballinakill was keenly contested and were unlucky to loose by just 1 goal. The second game last Sunday saw a well polished Abbeyleix side rack up a 9pt win in Durrow. The Juniors though are in a big division with plenty more games yet to come. Hopefully they can pick up on a winning momentum that could see them surge up the table. Next up is Colt in Raheen on Saturday, May 2nd.
FEILE: Following the success of our hurlers in the recent Feile, the code switches to Football this weekend. Between the time of print and the time of sale with this newsletter the boys will have played their opening game against St. Joseph’s-Barrowhouse. The Harps GAA Facebook page will keep everyone who cannot attend the games up-to-date on proceedings from Stradbally, and hopefully come Sunday the lads will contest, or dare we say it – win another Feile Final! Best of Luck to all involved.
