Cahir GAA Club Notes

Hurlers make it two from two

Cahir Junior A hurling team made it two from two when they beat Fethard in the second round of the championship last Friday evening in a very sunny Ned Hall Park, again our young men had a slow start with a lot of wides but they settled and started to play well, goals from Eoin Donaghy and a pair from Stephen Grogan (one from play and one from a free) set up Cahir to take control of the first half and by the time the whistle came to finish the half, the team had an eight point lead 3-08 to 1-06, (pictured in action Liam Howard).

The second half was never in doubt and the lads expressed themselves well and played good hurling adding another 2-09 to their final total 5-17 to 2-11, this fixture came out of the blue for the lads and some of the players had plans made to go abroad (no fault of theirs) so we were down at least four to five men, but credit to the young guys who stepped up to the mark and done their bit for the team, well done to all the panel good effort one and all, one note of caution Patrick Meehan (pictured below) came away with an injury, a collar bone issue but we will know more at the start of the week, we hope it is nothing and that Patrick is back as soon as possible, full team and scorers, Keelan Hickey, James Walsh, Kieran O'Dwyer, Eoin O'Neill, Patrick Meehan, Ryan O'Donnell, Ger Hally, Stephen Grogan (2-4), Niall McKenna (0-1), Ger Quinn, Daniel Moloney (0-3), Liam Howard (0-2), Sean O'Connor (0-1), Eoin Donaghy (3-4), Conor Casey. Subs Used: Paulie Barrett, Conor O'Brien (0-2).

Inter-county

Hard luck to our club man Liam Casey (pictured) and the Tipperary senior football team who had a heavy defeat to Cork at the weekend, the qualifiers is the root ahead for them, our senior hurlers did better with a draw against Cork and are hopefully up and running in the championship, well done to the minor hurlers who had a great win on Sunday, hard luck to the county camogie team, the county U14 ladies football team had a huge win at the weekend so well done to them into an All-Ireland final, that team included two Cahir players Niamh Costigan who started and Abby Noonan who was a sub, well done ladies, (Niamh and Abby pictured below)

Well done to all the panel of players and their manager Colm O Flaherty and also involved was Mr Gavin Berry a great combo!

The county clubs draw kicked off this weekend in Cashel for the 2018/19 period, sadly we had no winners in our club this time round, at least we have ten more draws to go so fingers crossed, thank you all for joining us for the draw which is greatly appreciated, and to anyone still thinking of joining it's not too late, please contact any member of our club and we'll take it from there.

Congratulations

To all our young boys and girls who received their first Holy Communion in our parish this weekend.

Juvenile News

On Sunday morning in the main field our u14's footballers played in a semi-final play-off against Grangemockler/Ballyneale, We started well and took the game to the opposition, Our defence was well on top and our forwards created and took some great scores. In the second half Grange/Bally had a lot more of the ball and had us defending with lots of bodies behind the ball which allowed us to break with pace and numbers, with tired bodies after the game these lads will have to do it all again on Monday against Clonmel Commercials in the semi-final, good luck to all the players and management team
