The Shelmalier senior hurlers travelled to Cloughbawn on Sunday last & after a very close encounter the visitors won 0-23 to 2-14.
This was game of outstanding hurling by both teams with nothing given or nothing taken. The Shelmaliers were served by Brian Doyle, Benny Barron, Aidan Murphy and Brian Malone. While this victory was welcome the real test comes next Saturday when the Shelmaliers go to retain their senior hurling championship title with their first match championship match when they take on previous winners Oulart/ The Ballagh in Bellefield with the game starting at 5pm. No doubt there will be a large attendance from the parish cheering on the black and amber men
