County draw throws up tough meetings for Sars and Commercials

County senior football champions Clonmel Commercials will have their work cut out in the club championship this year.

They’re set to meet Aherlow Gaels and Ardfinnan, with Éire Óg Annacarty the potential banana skin game in the group stages.

Meanwhile, last night’s hurling draw saw some interesting groupings – with Group three the main attraction.

Three Mid teams in Thurles Sarsfields, Drom & Inch, and Upperchurch-Drombane as well as Carrick Swans from the South make up the group.

Sars are aiming for the five in a row, and speaking after the hurling draw was made on Extra Time last night – Upperchurch Drombane Manager John Ryan said it’ll be difficult to beat them.
