On Sunday last the Robert Emmetts intermediate hurlers followed up their senior counterparts win with a massive 6-22 to 0-8 point win over a weak John Mitchells outfit. Rurai Costello (Galway) made his debut for the Emmetts and Colm Cormican (Galway) made his first outing of the year in a very one sided clash in Greenford. John McCaughan was his usual lazy self but managed to fire over a few scores while Stephen Noddy McMullan will remind us of his personal haul of 3-3 for a whilt come I am sure.
It is now two wins from two for the intermediates and the lads continue to go from strength to strength!

Last Saturday seen the new look Robert Emmetts senior hurlers take on last years county champions Kilburn Gaels in the second round of the Senior Hurling League. It was a very positive outing for the Emmetts men who fired an impressive 1-19 with many of these scores coming from play.
The game was notable for the senior debuts of Paul Horkan (Waterford), Kevin Bolger (Tipperary) Paul Kennedy(Tipperary) and Damien McCormack (Tipperary).

Maurice Callanan (Galway) top scored on the day with 1-9 and was ably supported by the Emmetts answer to Paul Galvin, Aidan Fitzgerald. Shane Ryan also enjoyed a productive afternoon with Garry Hill, Kevin Bolger and Paul Kennedy among the others to impress manager Mick O Dea ... ya ya

This was a great result for the Emmetts and one which we need to build on before the championship commences.

On Saturday in Greenford the senior team were defeated 2-14 to 0-16 against the Brother Pearses. The game was the first competitive fixture of the year and featured debuts for Shane Ryan (Kilkenny), John Hartley (Kilkenny), Damien Kelly (Cork) Eddie Walsh (Wexford) Johnathon Hanley (Galway) Brendan Mullane (Cork) Gary Hill (Wexford) Eoghann O'Sullivan (Limerick) Michael Walsh (Cork) and Maurice Callinan(Galway)
 
The Pearses played with the aid of a strong wind in the first half and built up a big lead but the introduction of Walsh and Callanan helped stem the tide and the Emmetts produced a decent comeback but ultimately had given themselves too much to do.
