Under 21 footballers bring title to Cahir.
Cahir under 21 footballers played some great football to defeat Lorrha in the County final in Borriseleigh
last Saturday. The game was very close until the last 10 minutes when Cahir scored 5 unanswered points
to win on a score line of 15 points to 1 goal and six points. Great credit is due to the young management
team of Gavin Berry, Benny Hickey, and Robbie Costigan, the players who gave great commitment and
all the people in the background. The team and scorers were as follows: Rares Stocia, Liam Howard
(Captain), Keelan Looby, James Walsh, Dean Lonergan (0-5), Conor Casey, Liam Casey (0-4), Niall
McKenna (0-2), Brian McKenna (0-1), Mikey O?Connor (0-1), Aaron Murphy (0-1), Cormac Looby (0-1),
Eoghann Quinlan, Ian Flannery, Oisin Moloney, Darragh Howard, Ryan Murphy, Eanna Heffernan, Davy
English, Stephen Dooley, Kieran Davis and Luke Cagney. Eoin Donaghy and Ryan O?Donnell were unable
to play because of injury.
Attention now turns to our senior footballers who are scheduled to play Moyne/Templetuohy on this
Wednesday night in Boherlahan at 7:15 in the first round of the County senior football championship.
Work on the new fencing around the field is progressing well and it is a huge improvement on the old
wire fencing. Any money earned from the draw the joker is being used to upgrade our facilities.
Draw the joker. The draw the joker was held in Morrisseys bar on Sunday night last. The Jackpot was not
won, but Davy O?Gorman won ?100 with other prizes going to Mick Quinn, David English, Hilary Grogan
and Michael Lonergan. This week?s draw is in the Shamrock Lounge and the jackpot is ?10,800. Thanks to
all who support this draw.
Well done to the Junior A Camogie Team who have qualified for the County League semi-final with
recent wins over Clonoulty and Thurles. Against Clonoulty, Cahir won on a score line of 2.10 to 2.4 Aoife
Casey was in inspirational form at centre back while young Aoife O'Donnell caught the eye scoring 5pts.
In the game against Thurles the younger Cahir side struggled early on against their more experienced
opponents and were lucky to be still in the game at half time thanks to a goal by Eadaoin O'Gorman and
some super defending by Emma Corcoran, Lorna McEniry and Roisin Costigan. Cahir upped their game
in the second half with Aisling McCarthy and Caral Casey delivering great ball into the forwards. Roisin
Howard tormented the Thurles rearguard scoring 4pts from play and Sinead Kennedy slotted over some
great frees to ensure victory for Cahir. Final score 1.12 to 0.14.
Hard luck to our Under 16 camogie team who lost their opening championship game to Eire Og
Annacarthy on a score line of 1.11 to 4.7.
Our club U16's played their county semi final on Monday and report in next weeks notes.
Hard luck to the county U14's on losing their Munster final. Well done to our club girl Rachel O'Donnell
who has been a great ambassador for the club and we are sure there will be many more days in the blue
and gold jersey.
Pride of place must go to the county minor team who went down to Cork in the Munster Minor A final
by 4 points. This was an epic encounter and only 1 point separated the teams with 10 minutes to go.
This was the first time a Tipperary team contested an A final and Cork's experience won out on the day.
It proves there is a lot of young talent in the county and Tipperary Ladies football is in a good place. The
club was represented on this panel by Aisling McCarthy, Aoife Corcoran, Aisling Moloney, Roisin Howard,
Emma Buckley and Keely Halpin.
Congratulations to the boys U21 team on winning their U21 county championship.
