Holders Shelmaliers stay on course 

BYRNE CUP Q-FINAL in Bree SHELMALIERS 2-10 BALLYHOGUE 0-5 THE HOLDERS, Shelmaliers, are through to meet their old rivals and beaten finalists of the last few years, Enniscorthy Starlights, in next Sunday's Jim Byrne Cup Minor football semi-final at Bellefield, having been too experienced for a hard-trying Ballyhogue in blustery conditions at Bree on Sunday last. The strong crossfield wind made it difficult for both sides to cope, but even so an entertaining game of football ensued.
