Thomas McCurtains’ hurling team romped to an emphatic 5-18 to 1-6 rout of St Declan’s in the London Intermediate Championship preliminary round, despite being short on numbers.

Sean Murphy, Dean Corrigan, Alan Clancy, Eddie Breen and Joe Maguire all impressed for the Goodmayes club as they cruised to a comfortable win.

However, the going was not so easy for McCurtains’ men’s and women’s football teams, who both lost over the weekend.

The men took on Dulwich Harps in their third group stage match in the McArdle Cup, but lost 1-15 to 0-9 at home.

It was point-for-point in the first 10 minutes, with neither side able to pull away from the opposition.

Dulwich, though, finished the half the stronger with some good point-kicking and went in to the break with a 0-7 to 0-3 lead.

McCurtains couldn’t find their rhythm after the interval, and though good place-kicking by Niall Coffey reduced the deficit, it wasn’t enough as Dulwich held on.

The women’s footballers, meanwhile, went down 8-16 to 1-2 against Holloway Gaels in the Intermediate League.

The club’s camogie team are the only side in action this weekend as they travel to Greenford for a seven-a-side competition.
