Bruff and Effin move clear in PIHC with five teams remaining 100% | Hurling Round Up

Effin, Dromin Athlacca and Newcastle West all picked up comfortable wins in the third last round of the premier intermediate championship.

There were a full round of games across the Premier Intermediate, Intermediate and Junior A grades over the last week, with some big results.

There are five sides still with a 100% record in the Intermediate and Junior ranks with plenty of others securing their knockout berth with a game to spare.

Premier Intermediate

Bruff’s clash with Blackrock promised to be an entertaining game in the PIHC with both sides level with three wins from their first four games, but it was Bruff who ran out five point winners, to move clear of their opponents in the group.

After falling in round four, the East outfit got back on track with the 1-26 to 2-18 victory over last year’s relegated side.

Effin, Dromin Athlacca and Newcastle West all picked up comfortable wins in the third last round to strengthen their positions in the semi-final spots.

Bruff and Effin sit on six points, two clear of Newcastle West, Dromin Athlacca and Blackrock, who just sit outside the top four on scoring difference.

Unlike the other championships however, there are still a pair of rounds remaining in the PIHC.


Hospital Herbertstown put 30 points on the board to record their first win of the year over Kilmallock in group one of the IHC. Pallasgreen picked up their second win of the year, as they put three goals past Knockaderry, while Croagh Kilfinny stayed perfect with victory over Bruree. Croagh will finish top of the group but results elsewhere mean Bruree are guaranteed a quarter-final berth.

In group two, there were wins for Murroe Boher, Knockainey and Granagh Ballingarry with the latter making it four from four to book their semi-final berth.

Junior A

Askeaton, Ballybricken Bohermore and Kilteely Dromkeen picked up wins in group one of the JAHC, while Tournafulla, Caherline and Crecora Manister all got over the line in group two.

Group three saw Castletown Ballyagran put six goals past Ahane on their way to victory, with St Patrick’s and Feenagh Kilmeedy also victorious.

Bruff and Mungret St Paul’s picked up group four wins, as did Dromcollogher Broadford who stuck 3-24 past Blackrock.
