Intermediate hurling championship: Killurin 2-13 Carrig & Riverstown 0-12 - Killurin got off to a great start in their first game of the Intermediate hurling championship with a 7 point win over a gallant Carrig & Riverstown team in an entertaining game played at a well prepared Kinnitty venue last Friday evening.
Killurin played against the breeze in the first half and the backs held tight throughout with the full back line in particular were in fine form. Killurin went in at the break leading by 1-06 to 0-07. Killurin started the second half as they finished the first defending well and playing good quality ball into the forwards and ran out deserving winners in the end. This was an all round team effort and the new management team led by Nigel Mannion showed that they are well up for the job as they brought on some new players and there was a good mix of youth and experience.
Substitute Mark Casey came on for his first championship appearance for the intermediates and made a strong impact scoring a good point. Killurin’s remaining games in the group are against St Rynaghs, Crinkill and Birr.
Team: Owen Dillon, Kevin Keenahan, Edward Casey, Gary Brazil, Colm Gleeson, Thomas Brady, Christopher Keenahan, Jimmy Keenahan, Andrew Brazil, Brian Gleeson, Daryl Kilroe, Micheal Monaghan, Darren Leonard, Dwayne Dunne, Niall Kearns. Sub introduced Mark Casey for Darren Leonard.

Deepest sympathy is extended to the Monahan family on the sad passing of Joe Monaghan, Mucklagh last week. Joe was deeply involved in the GAA especially Scor and was willing to help out any club, he was very active in his local community and throughout the county with his involvement with Comhaltas and other organisations.
Local people are concerned about a dangerous bend close to the bog road on the Killurin cross to Gurteen bridge road, there have been several near misses on this been. The authorities have been notified and hopefully some action will be taken.
