Best of luck to the St Fergals team. T'would be a great boost if they got the victory today.

A two point win for Fergal's in what was a very tight game all the way. A very strong, physical Rochfortbridge team were well matched by our lads who probably had the edge in hurling skills. It could have gone either way so it was great to see Fergal's close it out. Play was suspended for about half an hour with ten minutes to go when one of the Rochfortbridge midfielders sustained a neck injury and had to be stretchered off. Hopefully he will be ok. Fergal's were four points up at the time and looking good to close out the game but a goal just after the restart cut the lead to one. Fergal's replied with a quick point and held out in a nail biting finish. They now face the winners of the South Leinster final. Bagenalstown and Carnew face off tomorrow in the semi, with the winners playing Wellingtonbridge.
  St Fergal's junior team will travel to Rochfortbridge next week in the Junior North Leinster final and it would be brilliant to do the double.
All credit to Mr Conroy, Mr Dollard and Andrew Kavanagh for their work with these teams.

Fair play Mentor for the review of the game and well done to St Fergals. Great to hear they won. Hopefully they can go ahead and win the Leinster.

Mad Mentor where does the SH 'B' stand at the moment. When are Mountrath CS out again? The masters fixtures list had games between first and second in the groups for Nov 24th bur cannot see any results. Games must have been postponed.

St Fergal's beat Bridgetown VC of Wexford today to qualify for the Leinster Senior C Final against the Dublin champions ( St Mac Dara's CC, Templeogue I think). Having led 2-6 to 0-3 early on, the teams went in 2-6 to 1-7 at half time. Fergal's came out strong in the second half to win 4-11 to 1-9. Wasn't at the match personally so I can't comment on performances.
St. Fergal's junior team are due to play Rochfortbridge in the North Leinster Junior C final soon as well.

It would be great to see them get up to B level. How many of that team will be there next year I wonder? I see a few of them on the minor panel. How's Thep Fitz getting on, he's a good prospect!
