ACRES Scheme Short-changing Farmers – IFA

June 21, 2024 · Comments Off on ACRES Scheme Short-changing Farmers – IFA

Munster Senior Hurling Championship There was huge disappointment for our Senior Hurlers last Sunday afternoon as they were heavily defeated by Cork in Round 4 of the competition. Having played reasonably well in the opening half, it looked as if it was all to play for in the second half but Cork came out firing from all cylinders and unfortunately our players were not able to match their opponents on the day.
