The senior team were defeated by Cappawhite in the county semi-final last Saturday evening in Bansha. Before exiting the championship our girls gave a tremendous display of football and for long periods of the game looked like they were going to advance to the final. However it wasn’t to be and some late scores from Cappa’ sealed victory for them.
Hard luck to our girls who gave everything on the evening. They were well in the game until the last five minutes. Despite having lots of possession they only scored one point in the second half and herein was their undoing, not converting opportunity to scores.
Team: Katie O’Sullivan, Claire Clancy, Tina Mulcahy, Hazel Shanahan, Aoife Power, Barbara Ryan, Shania Dowling, Shauna O’Brien(0-1), Katie Lyne, Sarah Everard (0-4), Gillian O’Brien, Gemma O’Dwyer, AnnMarie McGrath (1-1), Niamh Lonergan, Rosin McGrath. Madeline Aherne and Megan Shanahan (introduced in second half). Aisling Molloy, Evrena Everard, Laura Grace, Orla Ryan, Gillian Hickey.
With the season ended for our senior team we wish our club representatives on the Tipperary intermediate team all the best as they face Fermanagh in the All-Ireland semi-final on September 7th.
The Under 14s played Brian Borus last Thursday evening in Monroe. This was a nice balanced game of football with plenty of running, good passages of play and well-taken scores. Brian Borus put up plenty of resistance and the sides were level at half-time 2-0 to 1-3, the two goals scored by Brian Borus. On the resumption the Moyle Rovers upped their game and ran out comfortable winners by 3-9 to 2-3. Both sides got plenty from this game, played in a good sporting manner on a fine summer’s evening.
As per usual Pat O’Connor had the pitch in magnificent condition and deserves great credit and thanks for this.
Team: Kellie Ryan, Lizzie Ryan, Sarah O’Dwyer, Cora Maher (0-1), Aine Fitzgearld (0-1), Jenny Everard, Rachael Timlin (0-1), Orla Bburke (0-1), Cathy O’Dwyer (0-1), Emma Moore Kelly (1-1), Rowena Dowling (0-2), Rachael Browne (1-0), Claire Moore (1-0), Chloe Boland (0-1).

Clonmel Sportsfield was the venue on Thursday last for the semi- final of the under 14 A South Hurling Championship between Moyle Rovers and Carrick Swan.
This match was eagerly awaited as both teams had already met in the Feile na nGael and the qualifying rounds of the championship.
Carrick, who had a number of strong players up the middle of the field, had a good start scoring some long range points. For Rovers, Brian Quirke was solid in goals, clearing his lines well. The full back line of Jack Holohan, Sam Power and Gavin Byrne battled bravely. Our half forward line of Kieran Quirke, Ben Owens and Luke Delahunty tried hard to break the Swans defence in this period. However, at the interval we trailed 1-6 to 0-1.
Rovers started the second half strongly, with Ronan Quigley and Michael Cleary at half back fighting hard for possession. Luke Fogarty scored our opening point in the half, followed by a screamer from David Bourke on his left side which was deflected over the bar by the Swan ‘keeper. Cillian Crowe, at centre back, gave a ‘man of the match performance’, linking up with Cathal McKeown, Darragh Bolger and Ben Owens around the middle of the park to move the sliothar at pace. Cillian laid off an inch perfect pass to Luke Delahunty who struck the back of the Swan net. We had further points in this period from Conor McGrath and Sam Power (65). David Bourke who had a very good game overall scored our second goal.
Subs, Brian Lacey and Sean Hackett, introduced in the second half also gave a good performance.
This was an excellent period of play for Moyle Rover and we showed great heart to come within four points of Swan with five or six minutes to go. However, Swan finished strongly and at the final whistle the score line read; Carrick Swan 1-16 Moyle Rovers 2-6.
Panel; Brian Quirke, Ronan Quigley, Gavin Byrne, Jack Holohan, Cillian Crowe, Sam Power, Michael Cleary, Darragh Bolger, Cathal McKeown, Ben Ownes, Luke Delahunty, Conor McGrath, Kieran Quirke, Luke Fogarty, Diarmuid Mulcahy, David Bourke, Sean Hackett, Sean Cotter, Danny O’Regan, Joey Devine, Aidan O’Sullivan, Brian Lacey, Jack Phelan, Louis Quirke.
Thanks to Manager Pat Power, Selectors Seamus Ryan and John McGrath, Secretary; Marie O’Connor, First Aid; Fionnula Hackett, and all the back room team for all their work throughout the season. A special word of thanks to all players on the panel, who gave their all, both at training and matches.
