On Tuesday in Pairc Ui Chaoimh the first of the Lord Mayors Cup fixtures the A Hurling Semi Finals took place between Midleton CBS and the Mon AG. A big well done to Paudie O’Brien and all the GDA staff who organised this years Lord Mayors Cu and to all the staff in Pairc Ui Chaoimh for the use of our fantastic G4 pitch.
Ref Pat Lyons threw in the ball at 1pm and for the next hour both teams gave it their all. With a total of 5 goals and 42 points during the game both teams were only seperated by a few points at the final whistle with The Mon AG coming out winners and going forward to the finals.
Our second A Semi Final followed the first game and here we had St Colemans Fermoy playing Christian Brother College Cork and again this was a high scoring game with a total of 4 goals and 35 points scored with only 1 point separating the teams at the end with St Colemans winning by the narrowest of margins to take their place in the final against The Mon AG.
