Cahir GAA Notes

Gallant U21's ran out of time

A cold windy and wet day, a typical St. Patrick's Day in Ireland and it was no different in Dundrum for the U21' A' Football Final between ourselves and JK Brackens, playing with a very strong wind for the first half it was the team in black and white that took the first initiative with a point on seven minutes, and that would be the flavour of the game for the next twelve minutes and on that minute a goal from Brackens put Cahir five down, from there on we would go a further three points down until the twenty second minute when Sean Murphy pointed from a free for Cahir's first score, two more Cahir points from play would take us to break on a score of 1-05 to 0-03, the second half saw us with the wind at our backs, but with three gone of this half another point put us back again, two frees from A O Connor and C O Brien saw a little sign that the South Champions were beginning to get into this game, Cahir now battling well, on twenty minutes after Conor O'Brien pointed two frees there was only four in it with ten to go, sadly with time not in our favour we lost Stephen Grogan to a suspected broken ankle (we wish Stephen well and hope it is not as bad as we think),

Cahir now with their backs up and in the driving seat would get two more points the latter point coming on thirty- eight minutes and that was it time up we could do no more, final score 0-09 to 1-08, it is hard to lose a final but we must thank a wonderful group of players for the great journey they took us on over the past few weeks, and remember lads ye are South A Champions for 2019 and nobody can take that away from ye, heads up lads and thank you for the entertainment along the way to the final, we must also give a shout out to the management team who steered this group to the final, John Cummins ,John Murphy, Tomas Kelly, Mikey O'Connor and the all the help on the line for the different matches thank you all, full team and scorers from the final: Patrick O'Donovan, Colin McEniry, Christopher McDonagh, Eoin Wyse, Nicholas Reidy, Patrick Meehan, Tommy McDonagh (0-1), Ger Quinn (0-1), Kevin Grogan (0-1), Jake Kiely, Stephen Grogan, Dylan Fitzgerald, Conor O'Brien (0-3), Alan O'Connor (0-1), Sean Murphy (0-2).
