Well done to our Senior men on their Kiernan win over Coolaney/Mullinabreena on a scoreline of 2-12 to 1-7 in round 3 of the competition. The game took place on Friday night under the lights in Tourlestrane. The championship draw took place on Sunday night, our senior team will face Drumcliffe/Rosses Point and Eastern Harps in group 3 of the championship, playing both teams twice. 

Hard luck to the Sligo Hurlers who were beaten by Warwickshire in round 1 of the Allianz Legaue on Saturday. Our club was well represented on the starting 15 with All Star, Tom Brennan, lining out at corner back and a full forward line made up of all Tourlestrane players, Ruairi Brennan, Gary Gaughan and Aidan Walsh with other club representatives amongst the subs. The final score was 5-14 to 0-14. The team take on Leitrim on Sunday next at 12:45 as a curtain raiser to the Sligo Senior men's game. We wish the team and management the best of luck with their league campaign.
