In what was a first meeting between Glenmore vs St Patrick’s hopes were high . Sadly St Patrick’s were too strong from start to finish.
In particular FB , CB , LWB, and CF physically strong for St Patrick’s but more importantly they are a terrific Hurling team .
They led from the start and Glenmore hardly registered a shot on target in the first half.
St Patrick’s CF dominated this game and even thou he was replaced in the second half it made no difference.
Glenmore only scored from a free in the second half.
The match ended on a scoreline St Patrick’s 9-15 to 0-01.

Galmoy/Windgap 1-14The Harps 1-13
On a most beautiful Monday evening in Galmoy ,a large crowd witnessed a top class minor hurling league clash which went right down to the wire.Having travelled south to Glenmore ,a week previously, The Harps from the parish of Cullohill and Durrow made the short journey to their neighbouring parish and, combined with their opponents to produce a most entertaining and highly skilled exhibition . It was most encouraging to see so many people there to witness what turned out to be a classic spectacle. Playing with the aid of the breeze, Harps had early points from Neil Stanley, Brian Holland and a long range free from Ciarán Flynn.Galmoy/Windgap responded with a goal from Conor Doyle. Indeed, they might have had a second, when John Dermodysaw his effort sneak out milimetres to the left of OisínConroy’s goal, while Conroy also brought off a great save from Calum Lonergan. Daniel Hanrahan soloed in to level matters 1-2 to 0-5 at the first waterbreak. Liam Kirby, Bob Murphy and a 65 from Flynn saw The Harps pull clear. CalumLonergan at centre forward was having a powerful game for the hosts and rowed in with a 25th minute point with Niall Drennan also converting a free having been felled en route to goal in the 33rd minute to leave it Harps 0-9 Galmoy/Windgap1-4 at the interval. David Sherman had been very impressive for Galmoy/Windgap with many soaring clearances from the full back position with Eoin O Shea looking very assured in the number one position.
Galmoy/Windgap made a very good start to the new half when Conor Doyle pointed. Killian Enright got through a lot of work for the hosts on the night and he took a pass from Niall Drennan to level the game in the 36th minute,0-9 to 1-6.They had a let off then, when Eoin O Shea brought off a great save from Bob Murphy. A Calum Lonergan point in the 40thminute gave them a shortlived lead as The Harps responded immediately. An impressive individual effort from centreforward Charlie Murphy who shrugged off a series of tackles to rattle the net in the 41st minute, 1-9 to 1-7.
Again the home side responded , this time with six unanswered points, as they established a firm grip on proceedings. Killian Enright and Calum Lonergan plucked one each within a minute. James Purcell had been very solid with some excellent fielding at right half back all through, and it was his good lineball which set Lonergan up for his fourth point from play. Fouls on Lonergan and Daniel Hanrahan saw Niall Drennan point two frees with Conor Doyle also pointing from play to leave it Galmoy/Windgap 1-13 Harps 1-9 by the 50th minute.
Bob Murphy had worked very hard all evening up front for the visitors and he soon broke the deadlock for Harps as well as winning a close in free which Liam Kirby converted.Another foul on the powerful Calum Lonergan saw Niall Drennan close the scoring for the home side in the 58thminute, but they had to endure another seven minutes of play during which The Harps tried their best to manufacture the crucial scores. They were rewarded with two Liam Kirby frees but Galmoy/Windgap held out as Peter Burke’s whistle signaled the end of an enthralling contest.David Sherman and Calum Lonergan lead the way for Galmoy/Windgap with Killian Enright and James Purcell also impressive. For the Harps, Bob Murphy,Neil Stanley,Glenn Stanley and Ciarán Flynn worked hard.
