County Final: Bruree’s Under 21 hurlers travelled to Hospital to play Glenroe in this year’s county final. Glenroe got off to a great start and when Bruree conceded a soft goal twenty minutes into the first half, Bruree were always chasing the game. With a couple of minutes of the half to go, Bruree trailed by eleven points until a nicely worked move involving Vincent Stanton and Donal Deady set up David Deady for a well taken goal. Pointed frees from Donal Deady (3) and a point from play from Tommy O’Brien completed Bruree’s first half tally. At half time the score was Bruree 1-4 Glenroe 1-13. Bruree put in a spirited performance for twenty minutes of the second half. However, they needed goals, goals which did not come. A goal from Jimmy O’Dea with a couple of minutes to go might have helped if it had come earlier in the half but it was Glenroe who ran out deserving 2-19 to 2-10 winners. Tommy O’Brien had two points in the second half from play while Donal Deady (3) and Jimmy O’Dea had points from frees. The Bruree team was Christy Kelly, David O’Dea, Patrick Deady, Vincent Stanton, Jimmy O’Dea, Brian O’Rourke, Darragh O’Connor, Tommy O’Brien, David Deady, Donal Deady, Adam Kelly, Michael Cotter. Shane Finucane, David Broderick, Michael O’Donnell, Mikie O’Gorman.

Senior Hurling: Our senior hurlers travelled to Caherconlish on Friday night to play Doon in the County Cup. Those who travelled to support the team wondered where the team which had played so well in Ballyagran a couple of months previously had gone. The team seemed to have left its spirit and pride behind in Ballyagran that night. Bruree looked out of their depths from the start and trailed by 0-5 to 0-1 midway through the first half. Bruree’s lone score came from a Donal Deady free. Doon extended their lead with another point before a pull on a loose ball from Declan Sexton sent it to the net to give Bruree some hope. But it was forlorn hope as Doon drove on, adding five more points before the break. Bruree’s only reply was a point from play from Michael Lane. Bruree fared no better in the second half, just doubling their meagre total thanks to a late goal from Gerard O’Dea and pointed frees from Donal Deady and James V. O’Brien. This left the final score Bruree 2-4 Doon 0-14. This now leaves Bruree just two games away from a drop to intermediate hurling for 2011. Their next outing is a South derby meeting with Garryspillane. The Bruree team was Eamon Sexton, Kieran O’Rourke, John O’Brien, Vincent Stanton, Jimmy O’Dea, Gerard O’Brien, Brian O’Rourke, Dessie Lenihan, Donal Deady, Brendan Hogan, Gerard O’Dea, Michael Lane, Declan Sexton, James V. O’Brien, Tommy O’Brien, Paddy Kelly, Patrick Deady, Shane Mullane, John Deady, Stephen O’Halloran, James C. O’Brien.

County Semi-final: Bruree’s Under 14 hurlers travelled to Feenagh to play St. Kieran’s in the county semi-final. Bruree put up a great performance to earn a place in the county final against Monagea.
