Club Notes 15th October 202316 Oct 2023
Hard luck to our ladies footballers who lost the Munster quarter final last Saturday against O Donovan Rossa of Cork.
Despite the best effort made by this unbelievable group of girls, we just came up short in the end.
Great credit is due to the whole panel on what has been a great year for the club. You have given the parish some fantastic days out this year and have given the whole parish a great lift. You can be very proud of your achievement and look forward to playing at intermediate level next year.
Thanks to all the panel and management for their commitment throughout
Minor and 21
As we write it’s still not known what is happening with the under 21 football championship but we may have a match on Friday night so please keep an eye on the fixtures and social media for more information. If there is no match then we will train in Cuguilla.
As it stands we are due to play Moycarkey in Littleton at 12 noon next Sunday in minor football.
Our u15 hurling team is the toast of the parish this week as on Sunday at 4 pm they took on Emly in the County Shield final in Dundrum.
Played in perfect conditions this game was high intensity from the throw in and after an early exchange of points, we began to assert with some lovely skill from our forwards frustrating the Emly backs into fouls that were punished by the tremendous free taking of Cathal Ryan. Approaching half time we were dealt a sucker blow when a rare Emly free from near the middle of the field went all the way to the net for a goal which gave them a great boost to get to half time level 1-3 to 0-6. The score line didn’t reflect fairly on the tremendous work rate of our boys but straight from the resumption of the second half they were back on the attack and our forwards were really proving a handful for the Emly defence. The pressure finally opened up that defence and a great ball into square was caught and buried in the net by Ernest Bruzga for a much needed goal. Time after time our lads were dragged to the ground and once again our free takers stepped up with vital scores.
Just like the first half goal, Emly’s second goal came against the run of play when a long ball out of defence ended up in the hands of a forward with acres of space and his rasper gave Dylan Considine no chance. The game was back in the melting pot but to their credit the boys kept their heads up and continued to apply the pressure and got the final crucial scores to run out 1-10 to 2-05 winners.
Great credit to the whole team and subs as everyone gave a mighty performance and their sportsmanship was a credit to them as they played the game honestly and in a great spirit. Well done also to the management team of Mark Breen, Niall Moloney, Jim Moloney, Lorcan Egan and Seamie Bohan. The shield was presented to the Captain Thomas Bohan by Tommy Landers representing the County Board.
Best of luck to the Loughmore contingent of Drom & Inch Camogie who will contest the County Senior Camogie Final against Clonoulty Rossmore at 3:30pm in the County Camogie Grounds on Saturday. There is a large number of girls from the parish on the team and the side is captained by Mairead Eviston.
