GOOD luck to the Kerry minor hurlers who will play Tipperary in the Munster championship first round at Semple Stadium today [Wednesday, May 2] at 7pm.
Tipperary and Kerry have met nine times in the Munster minor hurling championship and Tipp have recorded nine wins. Their most recent encounter was in April 2002 when Tipperary travelled to Austin Stack Park, Tralee. The team have been well prepared for this game and their participation in the Cork Central Premier League will stand to them. Best of luck to the team and their management.
Should Kerry lose to Tipp in the M inor Hurling Championship on Wednesday next, they are down to play a home match against either Cork or Limerick three days later, Saturday May 5. Christy Ring THE Kerry Senior Hurlers will take Wicklow in the first round of the Christy Ring next Saturday in Wicklow. Kerry are the current title holders and defeated Wicklow in last year's final. We wish them the best of luck in retaining this title. Launch THE launch of the Patrick O'mahony Memorial Tournament took place on Sunday evening in the White Sands Hotel Ballyheigue. Sean Kelly MEP attended along with Tom Lawlor representing the North Kerry Board. They both spoke of the late Patrick O'mahony and of his love and loyalty towards the club and hurling in general.
