Our senior hurlers picked their first two points on Saturday. After a poor performance in the first they took over control in the second half. Great to see Darragh O’Connell back to his best. Danny Sutcliffe came on for the last 20 minutes and showed signs of his 2013 form. Man of the match was Donal Burke who scored 1-4 in the second half and gave an exhibition on how to score points. They now head for Tullamore next Sunday and we all remember the hiding we got from Offaly in the corresponding game last year. We will run a bus to the game. DCU had an easy win over CIT in the Fitzgibbon Cup and are now through to the quarter finals. Paddy Smyth, Eoghan O’Donnell, Chris Crummey, Fergal Whitely, Rian McBride and Donal Burke are key members of the DCU team. TCD had a great win over the Gardaí in round one but had to give way to Carlow IT in the second round. DIT and UCD are out this week. Dublin senior camogie team were beaten by Kilkenny on Saturday last and they now meet Offaly next Sunday in round two and will be hopeful of getting their first points on the board.
