Our senior hurling team completed their programme of games last weekend. It has been a roller coaster type of season for this team under the guidance of manager Brian Murphy. There is huge potential for this young group of hurlers and hopefully they will stay together to see that potential realised.

Milé buíochas to Brian for his wisdom, experience, skills, commitment and passion. It rubbed off on many, not just our players but many involved within the Craobh Rua Club. We also would like to thank all back room staff, players  and all others involved with our senior hurling team for their efforts.
