CAHIR GAA NOTES
Our club would like to offer our condolences to the Meehan family, on the recent death of Willie Meehan RIP. (Uncle to two of our club men Eddie and Liam Meehan), our thoughts are with the Meehan family at this sad time, may he rest in peace.Minor “A” hurling championshipAfter their win last week our minors were again in Monroe (our home from home it seems lately) last Wednesday to play Ballyingarry, both teams started well in a fast paced game, the two teams traded points and at the break our young men had the minable of advantage 0-07 to 0-06, it has to be said Cahir should have had a better tally on the score board, but for the fact we had too many wides (on another day as they say it might have been different), the second half, again a fast one saw both teams again trade points, until the half way stage, Ballingarry scored the first goal of the match, Cahir settled and fought hard to stay with their opponents and the reward came when Kevin Grogan hit the back of the net (see pic below), to set up an exciting last few minutes, our lads pressed hard to take the win but we lost procession, and as result Ballingarry took the spoils in the shape of their second goal, time now against our men they could do no more and could not rescue the game, final score Cahir 1-13 Ballingarry 2-13, that goal being the difference between the two, what all that means now is that we are in a three way play off, ourselves, Mullinahone and again Ballingarry, with the top two going forward to the next stage of this competition, so we will do it all over again stating this week, we will confirm all dates and venues as soon as we can, (first pic above Colin McEniry in action) full team and scorers: Nicholas Reidy, Conor McKenna, Ger Quinn, Eoin O'Neill, Tommy McDonagh, Stephen Grogan, Eoghan Kelly, Colin McEniry, Dylan Fitzgerald (0-1), Sean Murphy (0-1), Patrick Meehan (0-6), Paulie Barrett (0-2), Conor O'Brien (0-1), Cavan McKenna (0-1), Kevin Grogan (1-1).
