We welcomed our new FAS employee last week after a delay of 5 months. Many thanks are due to all the volunteers young and old who cut grass and did all the other work during the last 5 months. We could not survive without all of the volunteers who give so much of their time to coach young people and provide facilities for them.

The primary school parish-hurling league started last Saturday afternoon and we were presented with a feast of hurling. At the beginning it looked like we were in for a bit of a soaking but the gods gave us a window without rain and very strong wind and it was duly taken. This year for the first time the primary school girls also played. There were some great displays on the day especially from Kevin Grogan and Christopher McDonagh. The girls too had some excellent performers. Erin O Regan played a proverbial blinder in defence as did Kate Flannery and Sarah Finnane whose work rate in their respective games was exceptional. The really encouraging thing was the display of some of the younger players, none more so than Evan O Regan, Colin Barrett, Francis McDonagh and Dylan Butler. There were wins for Kevin Grogan?s and Thomas Kelly?s teams but there is a bit to go yet before the final days of the competition. Many thanks are due to Martin Halpin and Lorna McEniry for refereeing on the day. We wish Kevin a speedy recovery from a hand injury.
Cahir played in an U13 Football tournament in Moyle Rovers on Saturday last. Six teams completed in this competition and two were from Moyle Rovers. This was a 10 a side competition that was played in very difficult conditions as wind and rain swept across the fields. We first played one of the Moyle Rovers teams and after a slow start we got to grips well and got some great scores like goals from Sean Murphy & Dylan Fitzgerald. Great interlink play from Eoin Corbett, Jack Moloney and Tiernan McLoughlin ended up in another score. At the end we won this game easily. Next up was Clonmel Og. We started this game very well and had this game well in control by half time. Good defence from Stephan Grogan, Robert Kelly and Mark Casey set up great scores from Nicholas Reidy, Eoin Heffernan & Sean Murphy.
This qualified us for the final and it was against Moyle Rovers again. We started this game slowly and in very wet and windy conditions we were behind at half time. We played much better in the second half and fell just short at the end. The panel of players that played were Mark Casey, Eoin Corbett, Stephan Grogan, Jack Moloney, Dylan Fitzgerald, Tiernan McLoughlin, Nicholas Reidy, Sean Murphy, Robert Kelly & Eoin Heffernan. This bunch of players is very talented and if they continue to work hard, they can be very successful so they should be well proud of themselves.
Cahir Boys Under 10s Football team travelled to Ardfinnan on Saturday October 26th for the Johnny Cummins Invitational. They played in atrocious weather going on to triumph in the final of the Plate beating Newcastle. Well done to all who played, giving their all in terrible conditions.
On Sunday we hosted Moyle Rovers in the minor championship. Cahir emerged winners on a score line 5-10 to 2-9. >
