Junior A vs Garryspillane

Junior A Hurling Championship Match Report

On Saturday 23rd September we finished up the group stages of the Junior Hurling Championship with a win over Garryspillane in Bruff.

We had a comprehensive win on a scoreline of 4-17 to 0-5 which consolidated our second place in the table and ensured we qualified for the quarter final of the championship for the second year in a row.

Despite playing into a stiff breeze we got off to a flying start with an early goal by Chris Shanahan. Chris added a point before Garryspillane struck back with 2 Points of their own.

A goal apiece by David Power and Cormac Flanagan along with points from Cathal O’Neill, David Power and Shane Moloney extended the score out to 3-6 to 0-4 by the break.

We continued our good form into the second half and increased our advantage with a couple of points from Cathal.

Midway through the second half Richard Murphy struck with a goal to put the game beyond doubt and we ended the game with further points from Rob Henehan, Rian O’Byrne and Rory Hannan.

Gary Memorial

Gary O’Connell Memorial Soccer Match

On Sunday the 17th of September our Intermediate Footballers lined out against Meanus FC in honour of Gary O’Connell who passed away in July last year.

Gary was a member of both teams while also playing hurling with the club for a large part of his sporting career.
He won numerous county titles with the club in both codes and is sorely missed by all.

As expected Meanus FC started the brighter with our lads taking time to adjust to the rules of this unfamiliar game.
It also did not help having our teammate Conor Burke togging out for the opposition in the first half.
He duly punished us with a strike from outside the box half way through the first half which gave our trust worthy keeper Darach Skelly no chance.

Our lads grew into the game after this with David Macken unlucky to convert a well worked move which was stopped on the line by Meanus’ Shane O’Connell.
At half time we were a goal down.

A decision was made to bring on the ‘bomb squad’ that included Richard Murphy, Conor Kirby and Shane O’Connor.
We started promisingly in the second half with good link up play between Mark Shanahan and Colm Cassidy giving us a foothold in the opposition half.

Against the run of play however we conceded a goal on the counter attack.
Disappointing as this was, it seemed to galvanise our lads who replied with a well worked goal from Killian Scanlon.

Continued pressure led to our equalising goal scored by Conor Kirby who unleashed a left footed shot from outside the box that left the opposition keeper rooted to the floor.

The stage was set at 2 all and with time running out another member of the aforementioned ‘bomb squad’ duly answered.
A lovely through ball was played past the Meanus defence which allowed Richard Murphy to run onto and emphatically finish to the roof of the net.
With our backs to the wall in the closing minutes we held on through resolute defending from Tim and Evan Moloney.

Our Football Captain Tim Moloney collected the cup on behalf of the team from Gary’s father Anthony.

He thanked the opposition for a very sporting game which was played in good spirit.

He also paid tribute to Gary’s family – Anthony, Bernie, Robert, Alison and Shane & looked forward to the continuation of this tradition for years to come.

Panel: Darach Skelly, Evan Moloney, Tim Moloney, Killian Scanlon, Cormac Flanagan, Jack Dalton, Colm Cassidy, Mark Shanahan, Richard Murphy, John MacManus, Shane O’Connor, David Macken, Donnacha Connolly, Ciaran Humphries, Conor Kirby and Peter Boohan

Management team: Mossy Fitzgerald, Padraig Byrnes, Micheál O’Neill and Mike McCormack
