Meanwhile, the U-16s defeated Kilsheelan in the South semi-final in Monroe last Tuesday evening. The Davin team knew beforehand it would be a tough encounter as they lost their last match against Kilsheelan.

The Davin team played into a strong wind in heavy rainfall in the first half and played well. Kilsheelan scored quickly but thanks to some fine individual play from Josh Moroney, the Davin team were able to break down the Kilsheelan defence and scored three first half goals. Two were scored by Josh and one was scored by Luke Faulkner. The Davin team led 3-1 to 0-6 at half time.

The Davins played with the wind in the second half, though it had weakened a little. The team felt like they had Kilsheelan on the ropes but were wrong. They took their scores well in the opening minutes and in the closing stages took the lead by a single point.

It took the Davins 20 minutes to take their first score of the second half but they succeeded in taking the lead again and managed to keep up the pressure and won by two points. Final score was: Davins 3-4, Kilsheelan 0-11.

The U-16s play the South final in Monroe after the exams on June 22. Training for U-6s, U-8s, U-10s and U-12s continues on the all-weather pitch every Tuesday. Training for U-6s and U-8s is from 6pm to 7pm while training for U-10s and U-12 is from 7pm to 8pm. These teams train in the field on Thursday. All groups will train from 7pm to 8pm and must remember to bring their boots.

There was an historic double match between Tipperary and Waterford’s Senior and U-21 games in Davin Park last Friday. Both games were a great treat for the large crowd present and the Premier County came was victorious in both games.

The Club congratulates local man and Swan player Bill Walsh on a fine performance as full forward for the Tipperary U-21 team.

The Club thanks the county boards and teams from both counties for bringing their players to Carrick to help us celebrate the life of Maurice Davin.

Thanks to Bobby Fitzgerald and his committee for organising the matches and upcoming Festival.

Thanks also to Nico Butler, Shane Waters, John Waters and Dessie Cronin for all the effort they put in last week to make the Davins clubhouse look its best for the matches
