Four minutes into injury time of this County Junior League clash at Galmoy on Sunday July 22nd 2012, Graignamanagh were awarded a thirty metre free in front of goal.

Galmoy 1-13, Blacks & Whites 2-8
Having been twelve points ahead towards the end of the first half, Galmoy needed two late points to edge victory over Blacks & Whites in this Junior Hurling clash at Galmoy on Friday evening July 13th 2012.The boys from Skeoughvosteen had staged a late recovery before the interval and continued to dominate the second half as they ate into the Galmoy lead.
Windgap 2-12, Mooncoin 1-12
It is oft times said that what is rare is beautiful, and wins up Windgap way are not as plentiful as they would like. But when they come down the track, they embrace them. They have won a few titles up there, so winning is not a stranger either to them. They continue to box above their weight, and they do as much as your premier club relatively speaking. Their labourers are little in numbers but bursting in size.
Thomastown 2-12, Carrickshock 1-10
This was an enjoyable encounter in which both sides showed considerable enthusiasm, solid determination, and not too little skill. Thomastown won because they had some sterling defenders, and a more direct, and forceful number of attackers.
Played in the excellent Grennan complex, the home side stole an early march on their rivals in the 12th minute when a very determined gallop from forty metres out, the powerful Michael Mahoney drove towards the ‘Shock goal. From a narrow angle, he hand-passed the sliothar to Garry Lehane
Junior Hurling Championship Round 4
Mooncoin 3-22, Dunnamaggin 1-9
This County junior League Championship game on Thursday evening last in Mooncoin was a bit of a damp squib for the few hardy patrons present, as the home side totally demoralised Dunnamaggin, as they ran out rather facile winners. While Mooncoin troubled the score-keeper with increasing regularity, Dunnamaggin had a plethora of time gaps where no encumbrance was placed on the shoulders of either the same score-keeper, or the referee to make any significant alterations to their respective documentation
