County Bord na nOg
Our Feile Péil champions Moyle Rovers are travelling to Ballinhassig, Co.Cork on this Thursday, June 30th to play in the All Irelands of the Féile Peil. Their first game is against Ballinhassaig. On Friday they play Tinyrland from Carlow and Slieverua from Cork. We wish them well in their games.
County champions Drom/Inch and finalists Clonoulty/Rossmore travelled to Galway on Friday last to participate in the All-Ireland Féile Iomanaoicht finals. Drom played their host club Castlegar in Group 1 on Friday evening and lost by 4-5 to 2-5. This meant that they had to win their next two games to maintain their involvement in the tournament
On Saturday morning they played defending champions Turloughmore and came out on top with six points to spare on a score of 2-8 to 2-2. Next up were the Wexford champions Taghmon Camross, when unfortunately Drom exited from the competition on a score line of 2-0 to 0-3.
Tipp’s other representatives Clonoulty/Rossmore played their first game on Friday against Athenry and came out on the wrong side on a score of 2-3 to 1-0. In the next game on Saturday they played Croughwell and at the interval the sides were on level terms. During the second period proceedings were evenly balanced. At full time however the boys from the west went down by a single point, by 0-9 to 0-8.
In the last game they faced a very strong side in the Wolf Tones and were beaten by 1-8 to no score.
Like Drom, Clonoulty are to be commended for the manner in which they represented the county. Conditions were treacherous, with heavy rain and wind, and still both teams performed with vigour and heart.
U/16 Football semi-finals
On Thursday last both U-16 C Football semi-finals were played. Ardfinnan provided the venue for the contest between Fr. Sheehys and Clonmel Og, with victory going to Fr. Sheehys on a score of 3-8 to 2-3. In the other semi final in New Inn Carrick Davins proved far too strong for west representatives Eire Og Annacarty on a scoreline of 6-10 to 3-3.The result ensures that the C final is an all-south affair.
On Saturday Fethard took on Sean Treacys/Emly in Dundrum in the B semi final. The south boys were much superior and qualified for the final on a scoreline of 5-12 to 0-8. The other semi final between Drom/Inch and Toomevara took place in Templederry on Tuesday last. The semi finals of the A championship will be played early next week, with Tuesday the most likely date, as all the U/16 Football finals are being played on Saturday, July 9th.
The Munster U/14, 15 and 16 Football tournaments are being played on Saturday, July 16th. The 14s travel to Dungarvan, the 15s go to Millstreet and the 16s to Knocklong/adjacent venues.
