U-14 Hurlers go down bravely in League semi final

The John Lockes U14 hurling team were by defeated Bennettsbridge in the U14 hurling league semi final held in John Locke Park on Tuesday 15th July. In a titanic battle which flowed over and back Bennettsbridge emerged winners on a 3-16 to 3-13 scoreline. The lead changed hands on numerous occasions with all the skills of the game on show in abundance. The result was in doubt right up to the final whistle with the Callan lads pressing hard for the scores which might yield a draw. The fact that they did'nt was not for the lack of trying and they all did their club proud.

Leinster Hurling Champions

Two Leinster medals made their way back to the club today courtesy of Cathal Mc Grath and Bill Mc Dowell who were part of the victorious minor team. Cathal played a fine game at corner back in an impressive team performance while Bill Mc Dowell was a member of the panel . The two lads will be back in club action this week with both minor and junior league games to be played. We congratulate them on their win and will be in Croke Park again in large numbers for the All-Ireland semi final in August.


The John Lockes have produced a club jersey for their supporters. So why not buy your own club jersey this year instead of buying the Manchester United, Liverpool or Celtic Jerseys. Wouldn't it be cool to wear your own Lockes jersey throughout the year. We have had a special design for young people created so if you would like one for yourself or for the kids. Let us know. The juvenile jerseys up to age 12 will retail at €35.00 and jerseys for 13 years upwards will be €40.00 as they are subject to VAT unfortunately.
