hurling gaaThe poor weather didn’t stop another exciting day of action in the Primary School’s Hurling and Camogie finals in Cusack Park.

Knockanean were the big winners on the day as both their boys’ and girls’ teams clinched silverware with victories in the Division 2 Hurling and Division 3 Camogie.

They started off the day’s programme with a resounding 11-2 2-1 victory over Ruan/Toonagh in the Division 3 Camogie final.

Immediately after, they completed the double with another big victory, this time over Feakle in the Division 2 Hurling final. The final score on this occasion was 4-8 2-2.

The closest fought contest on the day was to follow Knockanean’s double as Lakyle and Killaloe went toe-to-toe in the Division 6 Camogie final. Having led by a single point at the break, Lakyle were forced to hold out in a low scoring second period and clinched the honours.

In the final game of the afternoon, St. Aidan’s strong second half showing proved to be too little too late as Kilnamona held out to claim the Division 3 Hurling final. 3-8 3-3 was the final score in the last clash of an entertaining week of GAA.
