Senior football relegation rd2

The second instalment of this four way play off was played in Monroe last Saturday when we took on Fethard, the game was barely two minutes old when the worst happened a goal for Fethard, our lads settled and started to pull back the deficit with well taken points (one from Dean Lonergan pictured above) and take the lead, then on fifteen minutes Liam Casey raised the green flag with a well worked move, at the break the score was 1-06 to 1-04 in our favour, the second thirty saw the Cahir lads score another seven points three from Liam Casey to bring his total for the day to 1-04, Fethard got a goal back but to be fair Cahir were in the driving seat with good work from the likes of Brian McKenna to name one, in the last ten minutes we were to see two black cards one for each side, Cahir dug deep and saw out the game to take the win, 1-13 to 2-06 which secures senior football for next year, a big thank you to all the players for their efforts over the last few weeks and a big thank you to our management team, Benny, Barry, Davy, Richie and Paddy, full team and scorers: Keelan Hickey, Eoin Donaghy, Ger Hally, Ryan Murphy, Ryan O'Donnell (0-1), Conor Cashman, Mikey O'Connor, Conor Casey, Niall Mckenna, James McGrath, Liam Casey (1-4), Benny Hickey (0-2), Daniel Moloney, Dean Lonergan (0-5), Dylan Fitzgerald.

What a lovely story, read below the story that's doing the rounds on social media we think it's great

A few weeks ago, Tipperary Ladies footballer Aishling Moloney, kicked the ball into the Davin Stand on the final whistle when they won the All Ireland Final. Our Aoife Doyle caught the football but it was cruelly taken off her by Croke Park staff. Well today, Aishling payed Aoife a visit to her home, giving her a training top signed by herself and some of her Tipperary teammates. Plus Aoife showed the All Star nominated player some of her hand passing skills. Not a bad day for an 8 year old. Huge thanks to Aishling for doing this. Such a kind thing to do, taking time out of her busy schedule for a little girl who looks up to her. She's a great example for young girls throughout the country. Aoife's smile above says it all.

This story came from Thurles Gaels ladies football club, (we copied and pasted this article not our words), and Hats off to you Aisling you are legend well done. (Our words)
