Our minor footballers travelled to Ballyporeen on Friday night last to take on hot favourites Clonmel Commercials in the South Minor ‘A’ football championship final.

Missing both David Roberts and Paddy Morrissey due to injury since our semi-final win, we were always going to be up against it when facing a star-studded Commercials.

Moyle Rovers got off to a poor start and trailed by 0-7 to 0-1 after 19 minutes but we rallied before the break and got it back to 0-7 to 0-5 at the interval.

Prominent in the first half were Luke Boland, Stephen Quirke and Shane Lonergan with some heroic defending from the likes of Shane Luttrell, Alex Sheehan and Danny Owens.

After the break Commercials upped their tempo and a goal from the impressive Paudie White in the 42nd minute killed the game as a contest.

In the end we went down by nine points but it was a much closer contest than the scoreline suggests.

To a man our boys worked till the very end and there was lots to admire from their efforts over the hour. There will be better days ahead for many of this group.

The final score was 2-11 to 0-8

Moyle Rovers: Tommy Morrissey, Brian Norris, Shane Luttrell, Alex Sheehan, Morgan Irwin, Danny Owens, Tadgh Fitzgerald, Luke Boland (Capt) (0-2), Stephen Quirke (0-1), Craig Lonergan, Ross Mulcahy, Shane Lonergan (0-1), Ian McGrath (0-4F), Dara Ryan, Ciaran Luttrell.

This is the biggest weekend of the year in the ladies football calendar as the All-Ireland finals take place in Croke Park.

After an absence of five years Tipperary are back in headquarters hoping to bring home the All Ireland Intermediate Trophy.

This is the 40th anniversary of the founding of ladies football, and this is being commemorated, making it a very special occasion.

Moyle Rovers have huge interest and involvement in the 2013 All Ireland weekend.

To begin we have six girls form the club on The Tipperary panel. Gillian O’Brien, Barbara Ryan, Niamh Lonergan, Katie Lyne, Sarah Everard and Hazel Shanahan.

Club president Marion Power is a guest of Honour of the Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) as a former All Ireland medal winner. Marion played in three Senior All Ireland finals, being successful in 1980 when Tipperary beat Cavan. Ironically Cavan are Tipperary’s opposition in this year’s decider. Tipperary were beaten in the senior finals of 1978 and 1979.

Miriam Maher is also being honoured by the LGFA as a member of the Tipperary team that contested the All Ireland final in 1979.Nancy Ferris is also being honoured as a member of the Tipperary winning side of 2008.

Former Club chairman, and current county chairman of the Tipperary Ladies Football Association, Tommy Campbell leads the huge official preparations the county must undertake to ensure everything runs to plan on the big day. Transport, accommodation, press briefings, interviews and post match reception to mention but a few is all in the hands of Tommy and his capable team of officials.

Our Under 14 team and mentors are also special guests on the day as the 2013 All Ireland Feile finalists.

We wish all involved and the Tipperary team and management the very best of luck on Sunday.

Tipperary have a proud history in ladies Football. The Ladies Football Association was founded in Tipperary in 1973 with Clonmel man Jim Kennedy having a pivotal role in its establishment.

They won the Intermediate Final at their first attempt in 2008 defeating Clare in the final. Gillian O’Brien, Barbara Ryan and Nancy Ferris were members of the team on that occasion.

Our defence held their ground and their heads. Emma Cronin, with her many interceptions while Rowena Dowling continued to put pressure on the Moycarkey players. Emer Ryan then completed her hat-trick. Also some lovely interplay from Róisin Breen and Rachel Browne resulted in a goal for Rachel.
