Cahir GAA Notes
FinallyAfter last weekend's debacle (game off/on, venue no venue.) we finally had some action on the pitch from our U21 footballers. We had to go to Killenaule to play Killenaule, the defending champions (Cahir) got off to the perfect start when Conor O'Brien raised the green flag with just minutes on the clock, Cahir added another goal scored by Conor's cousin, Stephen Grogan, with a strong wind against them our young men went to the break with the minimum advantage, half time score 2-01 to 1-03. The second half saw both teams exchange scores, under new captain Mikey O'Connor (congratulations Mikey) Cahir had the upper hand in this game but found it difficult to pull away from their opponents but done enough to see out the game and take the win, final score 3-04 to 2-05, well done to all the panel and management. The team and scorers were as follows: Rares Stoica, Keelan Looby, Ryan O'Donnell, Cavan McKenna, Ryan Murphy, Brendan Donaghy ()-1), Conor McKenna, Mikey O'Connor (Captain), Conor Cashman, Jack Murphy, Stephen Grogan (1-0), Eanna Heffernan (1-0), Conor O'Brien (1-0), Alan O'Connor (0-3), Darragh Howard.
