Senior Hurling Quarter-Final Draw This Evening As Final Eight Confirmed

The draw for the county senior hurling quarter-finals will take place this evening after four more teams booked their place this weekend.

Cratloe were 1-16 to 0-12 winners over Kilmaley in Cusack Park yesterday.

A Billy Connors goal on 36 minutes inspired last year’s runners-up to overturn an early six point deficit.


Cratloe manager Alan Neville says their poor shooting masked a positive display in the early stages.


On Saturday, Éire Óg were the first Round 3 winners as they beat Newmarket-on-Fergus 2-13 to 1-14 in Cusack Park.

The second scheduled game on that card was moved to Sixmilebridge due to a burst water main but it didn’t disturb Ballyea who overcame Wolfe Tones by 2-24 to 0-14.

And Feakle produced the result of the weekend getting the better of Clooney/Quin by 3-17 to 1-21.

Feakle boss Michael Guilfoyle paid tribute to his small squad including returning duo James Noonan and Stevie Conway.


The four winners will go into the hat tonight with the teams that qualified from Round 2 – Clonlara, Crusheen, Inagh/Kilnamona and Sixmilebridge.
