Knigh Sarsfields represented the parish in the 1902 senior championship ( it was played in 1903 ). They met Ballina in the
first round on a January Sunday " in a field outside Nenagh " and won by 2-3 to 1-4. About 2,000 spectators attended
the match, James O' Meara of Moanafin acted as a referee, and according to the Nenagh Guardian of 24 January 1903 " gave
entire satisfaction". In March Lahorna De Wets won their first round match against nenagh Shamrocks in a " Sloppy
Field " at Monsea.
Knigh and De Wets reached the North final, which was played at Borrisokane on sunday 31 May 1903 before 3,000 spectators.
" It was" commented the Nenagh Guardian of 6 June 1903, " the finest exhibition of hurling ever seen in the
Ormonds". De Wets led by three points to one at half-time, but the Knigh men were full of fight. Lahorna poached a goal
early in the second half, Knigh replied with another. De Wets finally gained the upper hand, scored a further 1-2 and took
their second consecutive North title. They afterwards went on to beat Carrick-on-Suir for their only county championship success.
Knigh fielded teams in both the senior and junior championships the following year, but both were defeated in the first round.
