County Hurling Championship We were defeated by Borrisileigh in the first round of the County group stage. After a big fightback in the second half we eventually fell to a 1.18 to 1.15 defeat. We still have to play Moycarkey Borris and Toomevara. Two wins will now likely be required to qualify from the group. The next round is unlikely to be played until August at the earliest. Junior Hurling The first round of the junior championship did not go ahead as scheduled on Sunday vs Arravale Rovers. We await the next fixture which will likely be in the coming weeks. West hurling league for Junior B and minor are both underway. Membership Thanks to all who cooperated in paying up in a timely manner. West’s Awake Festival 2019 Preparation is very much underway for the 4th annual West’s Awake. We have a very exciting line-up again this year. Local Stars The 2 Johnnies and The Blizzards will headline the event this year. We also have our very own Rebel Hearts as well as The Papa Zitas and exciting up and coming Thurles band Strings and Things. Tickets will be on sale very soon. The date for the diary is June 2nd.
