Hard luck to Graigue Ballycallan who came up short against a dogged Charleville in Thurles today. It was a close battle in the first half with Graigue Ballycallan and Charleville exchanging points in a tit for tat battle, but it was Graigue who entered the dressing room two points to the good, 0-9 to 0-7 at halt-time. On the restart it was much of the same but a goal for Charleville on 47 minutes proved decisive and gave them the confidence to push on. Graigue however staged a mini comeback with a goal of their own through Aaron Brennan in added time but it was too late. The final score was 1-13 to 1-15 with Charleville proceeding to the All Ireland Final.
All attention now turns to Dunnamaggin who will face Cloughduv in their All-Ireland Junior S/F in Fraher Field, Dungarvan tomorrow (Sunday) at 2pm. Best wishes to them.
