Kilmaley make the final eight

Kilmaley 0-13   Corofin 0-10 KILMALEY booked their place in the last eight of the senior hurling championship when they overcame Corofin on Saturday at Cusack Park but they will be the first to admit that they will have to show a huge improvement if they are to challenge for the crown. This was one of the poorest games in the campaign for quite a while and the winners will be particularly concerned with the fact that they shot 21 wides during the course of the game. In the previous round they had 19 wides.

Game won in the first half for Kilmihil

Kilmihil 0-10   Shannon Gaels 0-7 KILMIHIL will definitely play senior football in 2010, while Shannon Gaels’ future as a senior club is less certain. While the 2008 intermediate champions have a senior B semi-final to think about, their neighbours have a relegation semi-final and the spectre of demotion to dwell upon. Kilmihil won because they made much better use of the strong wind advantage in Cooraclare last Friday evening, while they were also much more keen for battle than their opponents.

Kilrush inspired by O’Brien’s performance

Kilrush 0-10   Éire Óg 0-8 INSPIRED principally by wing-back Con O’Brien, who kicked three points from play and Donal O’Sullivan, who played as well as he ever has at midfield, Kilrush clinched a senior championship quarter final spot in Kilmihil last Sunday. The game was postponed seven days earlier but if anything the weather was worse a week later.
