Cahir GAA Notes
Senior Football LeagueOur seniors were in the Park last Sunday morning to play Ballyporeen in their second league match; our young side held their own in the first half and went to the break two points down Cahir 1-02, Ballyporeen 1-04. The second half was to get worse for our team when our visitors scored a second goal and added a couple of more points to their tally, at this stage it didn't look good for the green and white but up popped Mikey O Connor to put the ball in the back of the net, the comeback was on and Cahir added a few more points to one ahead going in to the last few minutes, Ballyporeen were to get one last chance and they scored a point for the game to end all square, final score Cahir 2-08 Ballyporeen 2-08 The team and scorers were as follows: Keelan Hickey, Dylan Walsh, Ger Hally, Eoin Donaghy, Ian Flannery (0-1), Aidan Casey, Brendan Donaghy, Daniel Moloney, Mikey O'Connor (1-1), Darragh Howard, Conor Cashman (0-1), Aaron Murphy (1-2), Brian McKenna, Alan O'Connor (0-2), Dylan Fitzgerald (0-1), , Subs Used: Keelan Looby, Ryan O'Donnell, James McGrath.Minor footballOn St. Patrick's Day our Minor footballers went to Ned Hall Park to take on the Swan in the first round of the championship. Cahir played the first half against a strong gale but played well, a penalty converted by Tiarnan McLoughlin, to leave Cahir with the upper hand at the break, the score at half time was Cahir 1-03 Swan 0-03. Again in the second half, Cahir were in control for much of the game, with five minutes to go and five points up, a little complacency creeped in to the Cahir team and they conceded two goals in as many minutes to leave our boys trailing by one, with the clock against them, they managed to attack and with some good work they got the point to draw the game, a point gained but in fairness we left behind the win full time score, Cahir 1-07 Swan 2-04, The team and scorers were as follows: Patrick O'Donovan, Cillian Conway, Stephen Grogan, Tommy McDonagh, Tiarnan McLoughlin (1-1), Conor Mckenna, Ger Quinn (Captain), Patrick Meehan, Dylan Fitzgerald (0-3), Nicholas Reidy (0-1), Conor O'Brien (0-2), Colin McEniry, Sean Murphy, Jack Moloney, Jack Duggan Subs Used: Owen Heffernan, Mark Casey, Kevin Grogan, Eoin Rowe,Not long to go now Stars in Their Eyes Cahir 2017 Don't forget our great show is on this weekend the Friday and Saturday nights, tickets are selling quite quickly so get yours as quick as you can, most club members have tickets for sale and you can also get them at Cahir House Hotel, Good luck to all the acts on the night, below some of the people taking part but who will they be on the night???
