Cahir GAA Notes


Again this week our club would like to offer our condolences to the Kehir- Martin families on the recent passing of Siobhán RIP. Our thoughts are with both families at this sad time, may Siobhán rest in peace.

Senior football championship

We were in the sports field in Clonmel last Saturday evening were we played our second round of the senior football championship, taking on last year's finalists, Killenaule, Cahir were first to open the scoring with a point with the aid of a strong breeze in the first half, the next two scores (points) came from our opposition and on ten minutes Cahir levelled again, on twenty minutes Cahir were ahead 0-05 to 0-04, couple of minutes later a goal from Killenaule put our lads on the back foot again, more unforced error was to follow but we got away with it, just before the break a ball in to the square was not cleared properly and goal keeper Hickey had no choice but to foul the oncoming player and (shall we say took one for the team) got a black card for his troubles and awarded the robins a penalty, on comes our sub keeper Brian Enright (pictured below) and his first job was to face the spot kick and yes he did with a fine save with his right foot to save grace for Cahir and go into the break just two points down, 1-05 to 0-06, Cahir started the second half better and ten minutes in were level again 1-05 to 0-08, another mistake a few minutes later led to a second goal for our oppoants and that seemed to be the straw to break the camel's back, Killenaule took control from this point on even though Cahir did not give up and they tried their best, but experience and strength of killenaule was just a gap too big for our young men, final score Cahir 0-10 Killenaule 2-09, full team and scorers: Keelan Hickey, Patrick Meehan, Ger Hally, Conor Casey, Kieran O'Dwyer. Sean O'Connor, Ger Quinn, Daniel Moloney, Mikey O'Connor ()-3), Conor O'Brien, Niall McKenna (0-2), Alan O'Connor ()-3), Robbie Costigan (0-1), Stephen Grogan (0-1), Darragh Howard. Subs Used: Brian Enright, Dylan Fitzgerald, Ryan O'Donnell, Colin McEniry.

Minor Hurling Championship

Lots of action this week and it was our minor hurlers who started the week off when they played the Swan last Wednesday evening again in Clonmel, this was one of those matches where it was a tale of two half's, Cahir started well and had control of the first thirty with scores coming from Christopher McDonagh and the Grogan brothers (Stephen pictured below), saw Cahir hold a healthy lead at the break.

The score at the break was 2-05 to 0-06 in our favour, the second thirty started well for our young men with a couple of frees converted by Stephen Grogan, half way through the second half a purple patch from the Swan saw them claw back the lead our lads had put up in fact Swan won the second half but Cahir had enough to hold out to win by two points, (pictured below is Conor Kirwan in goal for Cahir), full team and scorers: Conor Kirwan, Liam Hickey, Eoin Wyse, Darragh Heffernan, Nicholas Reidy, Eoghan Kelly, Tommy McDonagh (0-1), Mark Casey, Stephen Grogan (0-8), Dylan Fitzgerald, Kevin Grogan (2-1), Tommy Magner, Killian Halpin, Christopher McDonagh (0-2), David Clifford (1-0) Subs Used: Jake Kiely

Junior B football championship

Our junior footballers were out last Sunday morning where the played Killenaule in the latest round of that competition, unfortunately same result as the senior game, our men had a tough outing after losing three more players to the senior team numbers were a big issue but the lads pulled out all the stops to start fifteen, an all-round good performance from the lads especially (to name just two) Aaron Wall and Chuckie Quinlan (pictured below) had a good day at the office, as did all the team, which is a credit to them all, not the result we wanted but the lads are in a good position in their group and could be in a semi-final spot, but more calculations must be done before we can confirm that, for now well done to all, final score Cahir 2-06 to Killenaule 3-14 , full team and scorers: Aaron Wall, John Sheehy, Noel O'Gorman, Willie Reidy, Keelan Looby, Gavin Berry, James Walsh, Benny Hickey (0-1), Mark Casey, Rhys Chowtie, Sean Murphy (1-2), Nicholas Reidy, Kieran Carroll, Eoghan Quinlan (0-3), Eanna Heffernan (1-0). Subs Used: Tommy Magner, Kieran O'Donnell

Draw the Joker

This week we skipped a venue Irwin's as they could not accommodate us so we went to the Galtee Inn, and next week we will be back in Irwin's, thanks to John and his team for looking after us on the night, this week's winners are as follows: Mary E. O'Callaghan & Denis Buckley, Cahir Steel, Mary Casey, Sanita Bilde and Pat O'Brien.

All in the club would like to send our best wishes to a club stall-worth Denny Whelan who went to hospital for a minor procedure and it turned in to a big one, we are glad to say Denny is now on the mend and recovering well, we hope to see you back in action sooner rather than later Denny, regards from all in the club.
