Canning’s Portumna relegated | Austin sees red | Sars flying | Faythe departed | Not Cuala boola

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney pore over the big results of the weekend in Club Talk: Hurling — as recent club winners suffer

Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney pore over the big results of the weekend in Club Talk: Hurling.

All-Ireland club champions Ballyhale Shamrocks continued their shaky start to the aseason with a nine-point defeat to O’Loughlin Gaels at the weekend.

It’s still early doors in Kilkenny, however, and it would be little surprise if TJ Reid and Co had a big say yet in the championship.

Club finalists Borris-Ileigh drew their first group game against Toomevara and built on that with a handy win over north Tipp neighbours Burgess this past weekend.

Austin Gleeson saw the line as Mount Sion came up short against Peter Queally’s Roanmore, while Joe Canning’s Portumna go down to Senior B after a heavy loss to Castlegar.

2017 and 2018 All-Ireland club champions Cuala suffered a six-point loss to a talented Na Fianna side, while John Meyler’s St Martin’s are out of the Wexford championship.

Lee Chin’s Faythe Harriers — who are coached by Derek McGrath — will also have to wait another year after being dumped out by Shelmaliers.
