Cahir GAA Notes

This week our club would like to offer our condolences to the Curry and extended family on the recent death of Eddie Curry RIP, and to the family and extended family of Sheila Walsh RIP, our thoughts are with both families at this sad time

County Football League

It was the clash of last year's south finalists last Sunday morning when Cahir travelled to Clonmel Commercials to play in the first round of the senior football league, Cahir were to come off second in this contest but we can take some positives from the game with some great performances from our lads on the field, it was also great to see Ger Hally back on the field for the first time since his horrible break last year (nice to see you back Ger) Cahir were in the game up until the last fifteen minutes or so when Commercials pulled away, to be honest the score was a bit flattering in the end, but overall a good work out at this early stage of the year, final score Cahir 0-08 Commercials 1-15, The team and scorers were as follows: Keelan Hickey, Eoin Donaghy, Ger Hally, Keelan Looby, Kieran O'Dwyer (0-1), Aidan Casey, Brendan Donaghy, Conor Casey (0-2), Niall McKenna, Ryan Murphy, Dylan Fitzgerald (0-1), James McGrath, Daire O'Brien, Ian Flannery (0-2), Daniel Moloney, Subs Used: Dean Lonergan (0-2), Darragh Howard, Ryan O'Donnell, Alan O'Connor (0-5), Eanna Heffernan, Oisin Moloney

Best of luck to the county U21 football team and especially our club men, Conor Cashman, Mikey O Connor and Brian McKenna, who are part of the panel for Tipperary's first match on Wednesday next V Limerick in Limerick.

Congratulations Ladies

Well done to our Intermediate Camogie team who picked up another award at the weekend, this time from the Cahir & District Sports Achievement Awards committee, who voted the team the overall winners for 2016, the night was held in the Shamrock Lounge with guest, our Mayor Andy Moloney, a great night was had by all and the awards committee chairman Gerry O Donnell was happy with the event which he said was a great success (pictured below are the committee members, Deputy Mattie McGrath, Mayor Andy Moloney presenting Carol Keating and ( in the front row ) members of the Camogie Club with the overall winner's trophy also in the picture is Hughie Donoghue Shamrock Lounge.

Liam Kiely Memorial Tournament

March 11th is pencilled in for the annual Liam Kiely tournament held in Cahir, when hurling teams from around the area come together to play in this great sporting day, as usual the Kiely family sponsor the trophy's etc. as you can see by the name of the event it is to remember one of our fine young men taken from us far too soon Liam Kiely RIP. Pictured is Liam's niece, Rosanna Kiely with the memorial trophy which is held by last year's winners Cahir GAA, SO keep that date free and come along and enjoy a good family day of hurling and banter.
