Kilkenny Honda Centre U-17 Hurling League
Galmoy/Windgap 1-11 Young Irelands 2-2
April 2nd 2018
The Galmoy/Windgap U-17 hurlers made a winning start to their 2018 campaign with a good victory over Young Irelands Gowran at a very foggy Windgap on Easter Monday morning April 2nd. After making a good start, Galmoy/Windgap lead 0-7 to 0-1 at the interval, the Gowran point coming from a Jason Brennan free in the 29th minute. With the pitch proving very soft, good hurling was not always possible but Galmoy/Windgap kept up their dominance, and when Mark McCoy hit their goal they were always going to win, as they restricted Young Irelands to just one score from play. The next outing for these sides will be on Wednesday April 11th.
Southern Under-21 B Shield Final
Galmoy/Windgap 2-12, St. Fiacre’s 1-7

Minor Hurling League Roinn B
Fenians 2-12, Galmoy/Windgap 1-6
The Fenians minors were much too smart for the Galmoy/Windgap combination in Johnstown on Tuesday July 10th 2012 in this Roinn B League clash..This game was switched to Johnstown during the day as the Galmoy pitch was waterlogged. The home side were the better side all through and the movement of their forwards had the visitors defence stretched all through. The concession of a number of needless frees also gave Mark Webster the chance to slot over some handy scores. Indeed the winning margin could have been greater if Fenians had converted all of the chances created.
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.
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.
