Cahir GAA Notes
Seniors bow outLast Sunday our senior football team were in Golden to play Galtee Rovers in the County Championship, although not our full squad, Cahir started brightly and after 20 minutes were ahead by 2-03 to 0-03. With a minute or so to go to the break the dismissal of Aidan Casey (straight red) was a big blow to the Cahir team. The second half, we knew was going to be tough and with 14 men that's the way it panned out with Rovers lifting their game and taking their points, with various stops and starts the game was in the melting pot until the final whistle Cahir coming up short, final score Cahir 2-06 Rovers 1-11.A big thank you to all the players for their commitment over the last few months and to the management team for their hard work and time they gave the club since the start of this year's campaign, Sundays team and scorers, Brian Enright, Ryan Murphy, Ger Hally, Mikey O'Connor, Sean O'Connor, Aidan Casey, Eoin Donaghy, Diarmuid Tarrant, Conor Cashman, James McGrath, Niall McKenna, Ian Flannery.

Both teams started brightly exchanging score for score with Ballingarry adding a few more before the half time whistle which came with the scores Cahir/Fr. Sheehy's 1-07 Ballingarry 1-14, the combo team in the second half showed great character but could not bridge the half time gap going on to lose the game on the score Cahir/Fr.Sheehy's 2-11 to 1-23, again a big thank you to all the players our friends from Fr.Sheehy's and the management team for their hard work and dedication throughout the year. The team and scorers were as follows: Eric Coleman, Eanna Heffernan, Keelan Looby, Paulie Barrett, Dylan Walsh, Conor Cashman, James Conway, Brian McKenna, Ben Hyland (1-2), Alan O'Connor (0-5), Patrick Meehan, Darragh Howard (0-1), Jack Murphy (1-0), Colin English (0-3), Aaron Condon.
