Cahir GAA Notes


Sadly this week we would like to offer our condolences to three families in our community Sister Kathleen Butler R.I.P. (sister of Maureen O Brien, aunt of Maura Grogan and Pat O Brien) Bridget Fanning R.I.P. (Loughloher) and Julia Halley R.I.P. (Bengurragh), our thoughts are with all three families and their extended families at this sad time.

Plenty of games in the week gone by

This is the time of year when matches come thick and fast and in the last six days Cahir had four games, let's start with junior hurling Championship on Tuesday last the lads were in Cloneen to play Killenaule, (this was the first game of a three way play-off). The first half started well for Cahir and a goal by Keelan Hickey and points by Johnny McMahon (2) and Darragh O Brien kept us close at the break, Cahir 1-03 killenaule 1-08. After the break our opponent's started to pull away scoring another 11 points, Cahir looked tired and not up to speed, despite goals from Dylan Fitzgerald and Johnny McMahon plus six points added it was not enough, full time score Cahir 3-09 Killenaule 1-19. The team and scorers were as follows: Brian Enright, Keelan Looby, Kieran O'Dwyer, Ryan O'Donnell, Conor Cashman, Eoin Donaghy, Brendan Donaghy, Ryan Murphy, Aaron Murphy, Daire O'Brien (0-1), Conor Casey, Johnny B. O'Brien, Johnny McMahon (1-7), Aidan Casey (0-1), Keelan Hickey (1-0).

Subs: Darragh Howard, Dylan Fitzgerald (1-0), Ciaran O'Donnell

Junior hurling part 2

After a senior football game on Wednesday (more about that later) our hurlers went to Goatenbridge to play Ballylooby on Saturday evening last in the second match of this play off. The first half went well for a far more brighter and fitter looking Cahir side and they started the way they were going to finish, on a high, going to the break leading 1-05 to 0-04, the second half saw Cahir taking control of the match and with Johnny McMahon in fine form (scoring 2-07) our neighbours were never going to upset the result, final score Cahir 2-12 Ballylooby 0-11. The team and scorers were as follows: Brian Enright, Keelan Looby, Kieran O'Dwyer, Dylan Walsh, Brendan Donaghy, Eoin Donaghy, Ryan O'Donnell, Conor Cashman (0-1), Conor Casey (0-1), Daire O'Brien (0-1), Aidan Casey (0-1), Dylan Fitzgerald, Johnny McMahon (2-7), Johnny B. O'Brien (0-1), Aaron Murphy. Subs: Keelan Hickey, Ciaran O'Donnell, Noel O'Gorman, Alan O'Connor. Well done to all the panel of players and management.

South Senior Football

Sandwiched between the hurling games it was the turn of our senior footballers to take to the stage on a wet and windy Wednesday (7th) evening in Newcastle to play Killenaule (24 hours after the hurling) with the strong wind at their backs Cahir were first out of the blocks in the first half firing over eight points to three at the break. The second 30 was difficult for the lads as the wind got stronger and the showers more frequent, but with great play from the likes of Liam Casey, Eddie Kendrick, Mikey O'Connor and a fine goal by Aidan Casey (to name just a few) the team held on for a good win, well done to all involved final score Cahir 2-09 killenaule 1-07. The team and scorers were as follows: Brian Enright, Keelan Looby, Oisin Moloney, Ryan O'Donnell, Brian McKenna, Eoin Donaghy, Mikey O'Connor, Conor Cashman, Liam Casey (0-5), Ian Flannery, Eddie Kendrick (0-1), James McGrath, Dean Lonergan (0-1), Johnny McMahon (1-2), Dylan Fitzgerald.

Subs: Aidan Casey (1-0), Darragh Howard, Alan O'Connor, Keelan Hickey

Minor hurling championship

As if we weren't tired enough our Minors were in action last Sunday morning in Ballylooby where they played Clerihan, a strong wind was to dominate for both teams but it was our own who came out of this one very comfortably, the lads took control from the first to the last whistle, a great performance by all, final score Cahir 3-17 Clerihan 0-07. Well done to all the players and mentors. The team and scorers were as follows: Eric Coleman, Conor McKenna, Ger Quinn, Eoin O'Neill, Patrick Meehan, Stephen Grogan (0-2), Sean Murphy, Cavan McKenna, Colin McEniry (0-2), Paulie Barrett (0-5), Conor O'Brien (0-7), Jack Murphy), Alan O'Connor (0-1), Conor Cashman (1-0), Patrick O'Donovan (1-0). Subs: Nicholas Reidy (1-0), Cillian Conway, Tommy McDonagh, Jack Kelly, Eoghann Kelly, Tim Hickey

Finally it was a tough week for all in the club so a big thank you to all the players, managers and club officers for their time and effort and to our supporters who went to all our games, again thank you.
