Cahir senior footballers played Eire Og in the first round of the County championship on Saturday last in Golden.
It was a low scoring game with scores hard to come by. We were behind at half time by 1-5 to 1-4 having trailed by 1 – 5 to 2 points after 20 minutes but we eventually lost by 2 points on a score of 1 – 7 to 1 – 5.
The County championship is run on a group system, so it is imperative we get back to winning ways in our next game. Team: Aaron Wall, Eoin Donaghy, Gerald Hally, Liam Howard, Niall McKenna (0-1), Robbie Costigan, Dean Lonergan, Eddie Kendrick, Liam Casey, Edmund Meehan, Ryan Hennessy (0-1), Paddy O’Flaherty, Padraig Whelan (0-1), Diarmuid Tarrant, Benny Hickey (1-1). Subs Used: Eoghann Quinlan, James McGrath, Ian Flannery (0-1), Liam Meehan
In Ballylooby on Sunday in horrendous conditions the Minors lost to Moyle Rovers by 1-6 to 0-6. Both teams are to be complimented on fielding in the conditions and with many of the players playing their third game in 24 hours.
Team: Rares Stocia, Keelan Looby, Brendan Donaghy, Oisin Moloney, Blake Ryder, Cormac Looby (0-1), Darragh Howard, James Walsh, Ian Flannery (0-1), Ryan Murphy, Keelan Hickey (0-3), Niall McKenna (0-1), Aaron Murphy, Liam Casey, Conor Cashman. Subs Used: Ryan O’Donnell, Brian Mckenna
We wish Niall McKenna, Liam Casey, Mikey O’Connor, Paddy O’Flaherty (selector) and their colleagues on the Tipperary team well in the Munster MFC match against Clare on Saturday night in Ennis at 7:30pm.
The U14s were out again last week in the Peil competition. We had a successful outing against a very good Clerihan team. Although the score line would suggest otherwise, this was a tough game in which it took some heroic defending from Conor McKenna and Robert Burke and Stephen Grogan to contain the Clerihan onslaught especially in the second half. Up front Paul Barrett scored two goals in the first half, which helped settle the nerves. Darragh Conway came into his own at full forward.
We have now qualified for the south final in this competition, which will be against a very strong commercials team. Exact date is not available at time of writing.
Thursday night will see the A team play in Moyle Rovers and the B team play in Carrick.
Training Tuesday night at 7.30pm in Duneske.
The Cahir GAA summer camp will take place between July 15 and 19.
A meeting of the juvenile club will take place this Monday night in club rooms at 8pm.
