Reigning county champion,s Ballygunner, got themselves back on track in the current competition with a 1-16 to 2-11 win over neighbour,s Passage. The Gunners have not hit the heights that they reached in 2011 but the two points will be very welcome out Knockboy way. On the other hand, the men from the fishing village will be lookiong to reverse current trend and collect points to ensure their progress. Also in Group One Lismore and Abbeyside played out a draw 0-12 to 1-9 which helps both clubs in their quest to qualify. In the final game of the group surprise packet Dungarvan had a deserved 2-21 to 4-9 win over Ballyduff Upper despite the fact that Adrian Power the Ballyduff keeper scored a hat trick of goals. Dungarvan have exceeded all expectations this year and their underage work is certainly beginning to reap dividends.
In Group Two, Fourmilewater continued their rich vein of form with a 0-18 to 1-8 win over Intermediate champions of 2011 Dunhill. Fourmile have already qualified while Dunhill will hope to collect another win to keep them away from the dreaded relegation battle. It was a make or break day for Mount Sion as they faced 2011 county finalists Tallow. Following some very impressive Sargent Cup and league results the form of the Monastery outfit has somewhat declined. However some positive results can turn the year around and they collected their first win of the championship on Saturday as they deservedly came through on a 2-15 to 0-15 scoreline. Sion face Roanmore, who were on the wrong end of a 4-25 to 0-9 scoreline against championship favourites De La Salle, in their final game. De La Salle along with Fourmilewater and Lismore are currently the form teams but one never knows from round to round and a "dark horse" might still be lurking in the long grass.
Needless to say all attention will now turn to Cork and the Munster final against Tipperary which we will be looking at in due course.

Once in a blue moon. As rare as hen's teeth. A Government success. Each of those three sentences are as unusual and as rare as each other. But the last one seems to be about to take place. The Government has announced that it plans to give each child in the State a second year of free pre-school. It might not sound like earth shattering news but if it does happen then it could be one of the most significant things that this Government has done since it took office. Any money that is given over to education is a …
