Our U10 Hurling leagues commenced last Saturday. The games played in beautiful sunshine provided plenty of entertainment and competitive games. There were four teams, with each team playing two games over the course of the morning. At this stage it looks like Evan Moloney’s teams unbeaten over two games are heading to the final. Next Saturday will see another round of games when it will then become clear who will play each other in two finals. Well done to all the players for their efforts and to the mentors and referees for taking charge of the matches. Games will begin at 11am next Saturday.

U13 Roinn B football
On Friday, October 19, we travelled to the Durlas Og pitch in Thurles to take on Gael Scoil Durlas in the U13 Roinn B County Semi Final. We settled fast and had scored 1-1 in the opening six minutes. But to their credit Gael Scoil came back and scored 2-2 to lead at halftime 2-2 to 1-1. Our Thurles opponents started the second half brightly and soon added another goal. But the Cashel lads responded and fought their way back into the game scoring four goals and two points in an impressive second half to run out winners on a score of 5-3 to 3-4. It was a super game of football played by two very good teams. We are now in the County Final where we will play Two Mile Borris with the date and venue yet to be decided, well done to the lads and the very best in the final.
U11 Roinn B Football
On Tuesday, October 16, all roads led to Grange for our U11 footballers. It was a bright sunny day and up first for Cashel was a meeting with Gael Scoil Clonmel. After an eagerly awaited game the boys came out on top in a thrilling game of football. Next into action was a clash with Grange NS who really put it up our lads, but the boy’s once again stuck to their task and came out deserving winners. The team now also go onto the County Final and are awaiting to see who their opponents will, well done to this young emerging team and best of luck in the final.
West Junior B Hurling Championship
Our juniors booked their place in the West final courtesy of a good win over Golden. With pitches under heavy rain during the week, Cashel won the toss to host the semi final in Leahy Park and with the pitch in perfect condition Cashel rose to the occasion defeating Golden 1-15 to 1-10.
The display was workmanlike with plenty of improvement to come. The win now sets up a final clash with Rosegreen fixed for next weekend as Cashel go in search of bringing “home” the “Jamesie O’Donoghue” Cup for the third time. All Cashel sporting enthusiasts are asked to get on out to New Inn on Saturday next to shout on the lads they will need every bit of your dedicated support.
West Intermediate Football Final Replay
The long awaited replay of the Intermediate football final will go ahead tonight Wednesday, October 24. It’s been a while since both Cashel and Kickhams served up an excellent game of football in the drawn game so this game should be another cracker. Cashel football has thrived this year and while we know we should have contested a county final, the opportunity to capture a divisional championship is something the lads will be doing their best to achieve, it would cap off a fine year for our Intermediate team. All support Wednesday night would be greatly appreciated.
West Minor Hurling Final
It’s certainly going to be a busy few days for the club teams contesting three divisional finals in the space of days. Our minors have waited an eternity for their final outing, with Clonoulty providing the opposition. While Clonoulty will start hot favourites Cashel have prepared well in recent weeks and come into this game under the radar.
The team has plenty of experience and will give this final everything they have got, hoping to repeat the feat, when both clubs contested the U16 final two years ago when Cashel emerged winners after extra time. Best of luck to all involved and again all support on Bank holiday Monday in Dundrum at 1.30pm will be greatly appreciated.
The Cashel King Cormacs club would like to extend its deepest sympathies to both the White and Quinlan families on the recent bereavements of George White and Maura Quinlan. Our thoughts and prayers are with both families at this sad time. Ar dheis De go raibh a n-anamacha uaisle.
The Cashel King Cormac’s club would like to extend its congratulations to our friends in the Cashel handball club on the outstanding success they had at the Citywest in the recent World handball Championships. The haul of five gold and one silver medal deserves all the plaudits it gets. The turnout at the homecoming on Sunday evening last was fitting to the Cashel Handball Club, its members and indeed medals winners on brilliant occasion for the club. Well done to all involved!
