Cahir GAA Notes
U21 football championshipOur u21 footballers travelled to Monroe last Saturday to play Ballingarry in round two of the competition; it was our opponents who got off to the brighter start opening their account with the first two points, a tired looking Cahir side added a couple of points to stay in touch with Ballingarry who added another five points to take the lead going in at half-time, with the score line, Cahir 0-03 Ballingarry 0-07, after the break our young men just took seven minutes to pull back and draw level at 7 points each, the turning point came shortly after that when ( what must be said a lucky goal) the green flag was raised for the first and only time in the match, the goal seemed to undo all the hard work Cahir put in, from then on both teams added two points each to their scores to see out the game final score Cahir 0-09 Ballingarry 1-O9. The team and scorers were as follows: Rares Stoica, Keelan Looby, Stephen Grogan, Cavan McKenna, Ryan Murphy, Brendan Donaghy (0-1), Patrick Meehan, Mikey O'Connor (Captain) (0-1), Conor Cashman, Darragh Howard, Brian McKenna, Eanna Heffernan, Dylan Fitzgerald (0-1), Alan O'Connor (0-5), Jack Murphy (0-1).
