Loughmore Castleiney are among the teams to progress from the Group stages of the County Senior Hurling Championship.

Their 2-15 to 0-17 win over Upperchurch Drombane at Semple Stadium saw them top Group 3.

Manager Frankie McGrath told Tipp FM’s Paul Carroll that was their aim at the start of the campaign.

“There was a lot of tension in today’s game – some of the earlier games were a little bit more free flowing but I think it was very obvious as soon as the ball was thrown in today that the stakes were high. High for both teams. Maybe neither of us found out best form because of that but look job done and we’ll move on to the next round.”
