The Senior side travel to Bruff on Saturday for their final Ulster Bank League Division 1B match in this campaign, kick off 2.30 p.m. Bruff overcame Buccs at Killballyowen Park in the corresponding game last year to survive in Division 1B but, alas, there can be no reprieve for the hospitable Co. Limerick club on this occasion as they are doomed to relegation along with Ballymena. However, the small club can reflect on pride on their accomplishments in the recent few seasons including winning the Bateman All-Ireland Cup. Buccs will be depleted for this encounter with a handful of regulars sure to be involved with Connacht Eagles who, ironically, play in Dubarry Park on Saturday.
