City Senior Hurling League - Round 2

City Senior Hurling League: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 0-17 Monaleen 1-24 

Our Pallas Plastering/Chill the Beans-sponsored senior hurlers unfortunately fell to Monaleen in the second round of the league. This game was almost score-for-score in the first half, with some great points from the likes of Luke Guinane, Cathal Downes and Barry O’Connell. However, a goal in the third quarter for our opponents proved crucial and allowed them to open up a bit of gap. A number of subs at the third water break from both sides disrupted the flow of the game slightly and Monaleen managed to maintain their lead until the final whistle. 

Again, down a number of regulars for various reasons; this was another chance to blood a number of newcomers. Ciarán Barry, in his first year eligible to play senior hurling, was again very impressive while Luke Guinane and Darren Whelan made their second competitive starts for the club with Darragh Walsh and Ciarán Downes being among those who made appearances from the bench. 

County champions of 2019, Patrickswell, are our next opponents in yet another tough fixture.
