Aghabullogue now have to face Fr O’Neills in order to retain their Premier Intermediate Hurling status for the coming year, following a defeat to Courcey Rovers in Brinny.

Courceys opened the scoring after 25 seconds with a goal; this was quickly followed by two further points from the Courceys men. Aghabullogue, however fought back and with two great points from Niall Buckley and Patrick Finnegan and a goal from a penalty by Patrick Finnegan, Aghabullogue were right back in the game. Courceys then continued to add on some great points and another goal but two points from John Corkery (2) and three points (2 free’s) from Patrick Finnegan kept Aghabullogue in touch, with the score at half time 2-09 to 1-07 in favour of Courcey Rovers.

Aghabullogue opened the scoring in the second half with a point each from the Finnegan brothers. Courceys added a point before John Corkery added another point for Aghabullogue. Courceys then upped their game and a goal and a point for them gave them a seven point advantage. Finbarr Foley then denied Courceys of another goal with a spectacular save for Aghabullogue. Courceys continued to pile on the pressure and added numerous points to their tally. Points from Patrick Finnegan (2 free’s) and John Corkery was not enough to ensure a victory for Aghabullogue.
