April 2nd 2018
On a hard day for hurling, Galmoy prevailed over Blacks & Whites in Skeoughvosteen on Easter Monday April 2nd in the first round of the J J Kavanagh & Sons Junior hurling league. Conditions were tough for both sides and a pre match shower was no help on a heavily sodden pitch. Nevertheless,both sides strove manfully to play constructive hurling, with the visitors leading all the way and withstanding a late Blacks & Whites fightback.

All County League [Round 3]
Blacks & Whites 0-9, Windgap 0-6
There were not too many scores to warm the cockles of the hearts of the few brave Christians watching this All County League game in Tom Walsh Park on Saturday evening last. The game was more than scrappy, as both sides struggled to get up any semblance of a head of steam, where simple skills like catching, picking, or even striking caused more an inconvenience than a reality. Of course it was cold down under the shadow of the Mount Leinster, but it barely offers acceptance for the poor quality of hurling played.
Blacks & Whites 2-14, Graignamanagh 1-13
In Tom Walsh Park on Saturday, the crowds were there in numbers, the gladiators from Graignamanagh were also there in the requisite numbers, and Mullinavat referee, Tom Duggan was set to ignite the fuse that would send next door neighbours into battle against each other for the bragging rites in the town of Graignamanagh. You really couldn’t say that they went to battle for the sake of the little village, as every man jack present were from the little village on the banks of the Barrow.
