The senior's had two wins in a row in the Ulster Hurling league within 6 days. On Tues evening (15 April) they defeated Camlocha na Craoibhe Rua 1-25 to 1-08. It was a strong performance from the squad with Shea McKiver and Séamus O'Hagan (0-14, 7 from play, 7 from frees) in particular showing well. Rory bagged the goal in the 26th minute of the second half to kill the game. It was played at MUSA in perfect Spring weather.On a beautiful Easter Monday afternoon (21 April), they had their first outing of the year in Clochóg versus Baile na Lorgan (Castleblaney). Hard work was made of the eventual 3-15 to 5-5 win.
Leading from start to finish, a tendency to concede goals at periods when six and nine points up, had the game in the balance right to the end. To the teams credit, they
never panicked and worked hard as a unit to keep the points reeling over. The goals came from Paul Maguire, Séamus O Hagan (free) and a particularly well worked one from Brian Rua Taggart.
Next game is this Saturday evening (26th April) away to Cluain Daimh in Hilltown, Co Down. Throw-in 4pm. All support welcome. Keep an eye on www.naomhcolumcille.com

Cycling advice 15 from 'The Master':
Now that you have some substancial miles in your legs it is time to start putting some 'iron' into them. The best way to put 'iron into your legs' is to include some' hills ' into your training runs.
Even though the NCC cycle challenge isn't an overly hilly route it is still a good idea to include some hills in your training. During the actual challenge if you find yourself exhausted and on the verge of quitting,
and have to dig really deep to keep going, it is then that you'll find that the iron in your legs helps you to 'endure to persevere'.
So, this week plan out a 35-40 mile route but make sure that it includes some tough climbs : a mix of some long drags with some shorter, steeper climbs is best.
On the tough climbs don't be afraid to use your gears, breathe deep and get up out of the saddle and practice using your weight to turn the pedals.If you get the opportunity repeat this run again during the week.
If you don't have the time to do it all again then include some tough climbs in a shorter route.
