FOUR GOAL GIRLS DELIVER FIVE STAR PERFORMANCE TO COMPLETE DOUBLE
The Young Irelands U-14 Girls are in double celebration mode after they completed a double of League Final triumphs in Thomastown last Thursday night.
On Friday June 9th, the first Young Irelands team in action defeated Erins Own Castlecomer 2-8 to 2-4, while last Thursday night in Thomastown on a most glorious summer evening, the second Young Irelands team in action produced a superb 5-star-performance to defeat Tullogher 4-12 to 3-5 to complete the league double.
Congratulations girls on a superb double and very best wishes ahead in their preparations for the championship.

JUNIORS BATTLE HARD TO FINISH GROUP CAMPAIGN ON A HIGH
The Young Irelands Junior A Hurling team finished their League campaign on a high as they won 0-18 to 0-14 against Graigue-Ballycallan.
It wasn’t pretty & certainly not the most prettiest of performances, but Young Irelands showed an appetite for hard work as they ended up as group winners following the conclusion of League matches.
The Gowran men led 0-8 to 0-6 at half-time with Paddy Langton leading the way as he gave an exhibition at centre-back.
Paddy scored a superb long range point from play in the 17th minute, while Dylan Carey (frees), Patrick Brennan & Jimmy Lennon were among those also on target during the first-half.
Young Irelands started the second-half with three unanswered points – that included a great effort from Kevin Quinlan – as they led 0-11 to 0-6 in the 35th minute.
The Gowran men continued to lead by 5 points at the midway point of the second-half (0-14 to 0-9) as Dylan Carey added a brace of frees, while Paddy Langton fired over a long distance free.
Graigue-Ballycallan enjoyed a purple patch, and by the 53rd minute they had narrowed the deficit(0-15 to 0-13), but the Gowran men dug deep to finish strongly, and points from the hard-working Patrick Brennan, another long distance free by Paddy Langton, and a close range free by Dylan Carey saw victory secured.
Elsewhere, the Young Irelands Intermediates lost 2-15 to 1-11 against Rower-Inistioge on Friday night played in deplorable weather conditions following a band of heavy rain, while the Junior F team concluded their League campaign last week with a loss away to Windgap.
