Tremane and Four Roads maintain early momentum

With the country looking forward to the novelty of a July All-Ireland hurling final – and what’s expected to be an epic clash between three-in-a-row chasing Limerick and perennial challengers Kilkenny – the local club hurling scene is bubbling along nicely.

Early indications are that Tremane have emerged as a form team playing with purpose and a notable ruthlessness in front of the posts.

Tremane maintained their great start to the Roscommon Senior Hurling Club Championship when they had a big win against Roscommon Gaels in Woodmount on Sunday.

Tremane’s 1-32 to 1-14 win means they’ve scored 5-48 in just two outings.

Meanwhile, Four Roads also made it two wins from two, following up their opening weekend victory over Roscommon Gaels with a 2-16 to 0-16 win over St. Dominic’s.

In last weekend’s other game, Padraig Pearses made a winning start to their campaign, defeating Athleague by 2-17 to 3-10.

Now attention switches to Croke Park this Sunday and that big clash between Limerick and Kilkenny (3.30 pm). May the best team win!
