Congrats to Aughrim clubman John Keenan who was referee between Wexford and Cork in the National Hurling League  today ably assisted by club men Liam Keenan snr and Tommy Keenan as umpires. Great performance by all.
Well done to the Clancy brothers Mark and  Ian who are hitting the headlines in the school competitions for all the right reasons. Mark was part of Colaiste Brid hurling team that won the south Leinster Junior final recently and Ian starred for Colaiste Brid senior football team who beat Avondale in the County A schools semi final  and  face Dunlavin in the final shortly. Best of luck to both.  Reminder that National club draw tickets need to be got back to any committee member asap.
