Cahir Intermediate hurlers put up another very good performance in the County league against Gortnahoe/Glengoole in the Park last Sunday morning.
A lucky second half goal by Gortnahoe was the difference between the sides and ensured a 3 point win by Gortnahoe with a score of 1 – 12 to 12 points. Cahir had great displays from substitute Daniel Moloney who scored an inspirational point after coming on, Aidan and Conor Casey while veteran Derek Davis scored some lovely points from play and frees.
Cahir senior footballers are in action in the first round of the Championship next Saturday night at 6:30 in Golden against Eire Og. This will be a difficult start for our senior footballers, but we should be well capable of getting the season off to a good start.
Cahir minor footballers recorded another very good win in the South Championship with a victory over Anner Gaels in Ned Hall Park on Saturday last. Cahir were behind at half time by 1 – 4 to 1 – 2, but 4 goals and a point by man of the match Aaron Murphy helped Cahir to win out by 5 – 9 to 1 – 5. This is the second win in the Championship for this team having beaten Kilsheelan/Kilcash on Wednesday night last by 1 – 11 to 2 – 3.
Our U14 squad had a hard earned win over a very good and strong Carrick Swan team. Things did not start too well for the Cahir lads as they went behind 1-3 to 1pt in the first fifteen minuets but the lads really got into the game in the second quarter. Cillian Conway and Patrick Meehan took over at midfield while Robert Burke was excellent in defence. Kenneth Cunningham and Darragh Conway were a constant threat. Cahir were winners in the end by just 2pts, which on the balance of play we just about deserved. The team was; Tommy Magner, Kevin Grogan, Stephen Grogan, Eoin O Neill, Colin McEniry, Conor McKenna, Robert Burke, Cillian Conway, Patrick Meehan, Darragh Conway, Conor O Brien, Kenneth Cunningham, Ger Quinn, Parrick O Donovan, J Duggan, P Barrett.
Our second team are to play Fethard it was hoped on Monday night but at time of writing this looks unlikely. The first team play Clerihan on Friday night in the peil competition. This will be a very big challenge as Clerihan are a very good team at this grade.
The Cahir GAA summer camp will take place between July 15 and 19.
It was great to see our own Tommy O’Donnell playing such a major part in Munster’s recent win in the Heineken cup. It has been said before that it must have been Tommy’s training with our junior B hurlers that has given him the edge. We wish Tommy the best and hopefully go onto win it.
