Having lost to Kilmallock last week this was a must win match for Na Piarsaigh, for Ahane however this was their first game of the championship. On the day Na Piarsaigh were the stronger and better team, but Ahane continued to fight the whole way to the final whistle. Ahane now have to prepare to play Kilmallock next Saturday at 5:30pm in the LIT Gaelic Grounds the game will be broadcast on RTÉ 2. Team: A. O‘Brien; P. Morrissey, E. Enright (C), P. Harnett, J.

JUNIOR HURLING: Sunday evening saw Ahane and Crecora- Manister travel to Fedamore to play each other in the 2nd Round of the Woodlands House Hotel Junior A Hurling County Championship. It turned out to be a lovely evening in Fedamore with a breeze blowing into the dressing room end goal. Crecora-Mainster we’re quickest off the mark with a point in the first minute. They added to their tally in the second minute before Ahane’s Johnny Meskell stepped over a placed ball and popped it over the bar to get Ahane off the mark. Crecora-Manister started to take hold of the game and the put five more points over the bar before the first water break. Crecora-Manister took some fantastic points and it was clear they had brought their shooting boots to Fedamore. Ahane’s scores were kept ticking over by Johnny Meskell as he scored two more points from placed ball and one from play. Both team did fierce battling around the middle of the field and Crecora-Manister put the Ahane defence under serious pressure but they dealt with it well. The only other player to score for Ahane in the first half was Mike Carr who got a point from a close range free.The referee blew the half time whistle and the scores were Ahane 0-5 Crecora-Mainster 0-11. The second half got underway and the breeze was in Crecora Manister’s favour. Crecora-Manister went on to score 5 unanswered points in the first ten minutes of the second half before Johnny got Ahane’s first point of the second half from a free. As the water break came the gap had stretched to 14 points. Similarly to the first half Crecora-Manister took some fantastic scores from serious angles. Ahane’s goalkeeper William O’Leary made two fantastic saves and ended the game with a clean sheet. Aidan Carroll who played corner back and Shane Hackett at wing back both had good games and were consistent throughout the game. Kevin Morrissey got his name on the score sheet in the 29th minute of the second half as he got Ahane’s 7th point of the game. Johnny Meskell stepped over a placed ball in the 31st minute and popped it over the bar. The referee called time on the game shortly after and it ended as Ahane 0-8 Crecora Manister 0-24. Crecora-Manister were the better team on the day but Ahane put up a good fight and battled hard throughout the game. Ahane Scorers: Johnny Meskell 0-6 (5 f), Mike Carr 0-1, Kevin Morrissey 0-1.

With the elements at our backs we were slow to get going with our oppents leading by two points after five minutes. The next period proved crucial for our lads scoring 2-5 without reply the goals coming from a crisp strike from Michael Martin and a tidy finish from Daniel Owens. We began the second half eight points up as Granagh closed to within five we got another goal just before the water break from Daniel Owens followed late in the half by a first time finish to the roof of the net from Jason Cross. Credit to our defence who held tough in the closing stages to leave us running out winners by eight points.

Our next U21 match was a county semi final against neighbours Caherline played in Cappamore on Wednesday evening last with the wet conditions having a big influence on the game. Although we were on top and getting shots off we trailied at the first water break 0-3 to 0-2 that deficit was extended to four soon after but we battled back to draw level at halftime 0-6 a piece. Facing into a gentle breeze after the break it was proving to be a very tight tussle with the game left to flow scores were hard earned and heading into the second water break we trailed by two points. In the final quarter we managed to claw back Caherline's lead and a last minute Daniel Ownes free send the obsorbing contest in to extra time. With the rain now increasing in volume we had a match winning period scoring 1-3 to no reply with the goal coming from Daniel Owens and thanks to excellent defensive work we only conceaded two points in the twenty minutes of extra time.

U21 HURLING: In the U21 county quarter final Cappamore 4-13 Blackrock 3-16 (aet). Cappamore win 3-2 in a penalty shoot out. In a pulsating match goalie Liam O’Donnell proved to be the hero as he scored one and saved three penalties in the penalty shootout that saw Cappamore qualify for the U 21A county semi-final. Played in Hospital in awful conditions Blackrock got the first score of the game, a long range point. Cappamore playing well responded with points from Donal O’Mahoney and Ronan Hanley. O’Mahoney added a point from a free to extend the lead but a goal from Blackrock’s Colm O’Keeffe saw Blackrock edge back in front. Pointed frees from Blackrock’s Heffernan and O’Keeffe along with two from Hanley and a free from O’Mahoney had Blackrock a goal ahead after 20 mins. Another goal from O’Keeffe had Blackrock now ahead. Cappamore fought back hard and reduced the deficit to 2 thanks to 4 unanswered points from O’Mahoney (2), Hanley and full forward Daniel Thompson but 2 late points from Blackrock had them leading 2-7 to 0-9 at half time. The introduction of Kevin Doyle early in the second half was decisive, scoring 2 goals that brought Cappamore right back into the game. The game was finely balanced, Blackrock were accurate from play and placed balls but O’Mahoney with 2 frees and another from Thompson added points for Cappamore. A late goal from Ronan Hanley got Cappamore into the lead but a free from Blackrock deep into injury time sent the match to extra time. In extra time with conditions worsening and light fading scores were hard to come by. Both teams were giving it their all, Sean Whelan in defence and PJ Hogan in attack excelled for Cappamore. A third goal from super sub Doyle and a point from Jason Fitzgibbon had Cappamore 4 points up at half time. Blackrock fought back and a late penalty scored by Heffernan followed by a pointed free saw the match level again and sent it to a shootout. To be fair it was a game that neither team deserved to lose but in these Covid-19 times there had to be a winner this evening. Goals in the shootout from Liam O’Donnell, Donal O’Mahoney and Jason Fitzgibbon along with the saves from O’Donnell saw Cappamore through. Team: Liam O’Donnell, Gearoid Hogan, Paul Campbell, Conor Fitzgibbon, Sean Whelan, Jack Sheehan, Tadhg Ryan, Jason Fitzgibbon (0-1), Jamie McCarthy, Jack Leonard, Donal O’Mahoney (0-7), PJ Hogan, Paddy McMahon, Daniel Thompson (0-2), Ronan Hanley (1-3).

U14 HURLING: U14b hurling championship round 1 Cappamore 0-6 Patrickswell 1-7. Our campaign got off to a disappointing start last Wednesday night in Cappamore. Failure to take several good scoring chances along with a fortuitous goal late on for the opposition proved the difference between the two sides on the night.The match was very closely contested throughout and the Cappamore lads could not be faulted for their efforts. Panel: Mal Keogh, Chris Smith, Cillian O’Dwyer, Shane Fleming, Cathal Mulcahy, Mikey Berkery, Jacob Wright, Colum Hanley, Jack O’Donnell(0-2f), Eamonn Ryan, Evan Coleman(0-3, 1f), Jake Slattery(0-1), Shane O’Connor, Alex Heney, Shane O’Neill.

We got off to a solid start in the first half with some good scores from Cathal O’Neill, Tomás Connolly, Conor Kirby and Karl Moloney along with solid performances in the back line by Evan and Niall Moloney and Darach Skelly. This left us 0-11 to 0-5 in front at half time. Our lads kicked in after the half time whistle and had the lead stretched out to 0-19 to 0-6 by the time the second half water break had come around with fine scores from Cathal, Micheál O’Neill, Richard Murphy, Michael Bateman, Edwin Wixted and James Conheady. Our lads racked on another few scores in the closing minutes, including a fine Brendan Power effort, to run out comfortable 16 point winners.

LIMERICK IHC: Last Sunday night we played Hospital/Herbertstown in a sunny Kilmallock. We started with the aid on the breeze and the sun at our backs. Hospital got an early goal but Croom were in control for the first quarter before the water break dominating in the half back line and midfield and quick ball into our full forward line put us into a 1-5 to 1-0 lead, the goal coming from a great finish off a rocket of a shot in off the underside of the cross bar by Conor Laffin. The water break disrupted our momentum and Hospital grew into the game, winning some possession, getting some scores and frees. The half time score was 1-8 to 1-7 to Croom. We upped our intensity on the resumption and took some great scores. Mark Reidy was introduced for the injured Mark O'Riordan and he took some great scores and the accuracy of Ethan O'Sullivan Barry had us 1-15 to 1-8 ahead at the water break. The final quarter was about game management, and as Hospital's urgency grew, they put us under pressure as they tried to cut the deficit. Luckily our backs and midfield stood firm and some great blocks by goalkeeper Mark O'Kelly and full back Marcus Cregan kept them out. The game ended on a final score of 1-18 to 1-10, We have qualified for the county quarter final and whether we finish 1st or 2nd in the group will depend on how the Granagh-Ballingarry v Hospital-Herbertstown match ends up next week. We will probably play either Na Piarsaigh or Kilmallock in the quarter final.
JUNIOR FOOTBALL: Preparation picks up this week with more training and a challenge match this weekend. There is a lot of competition for places as younger players are coming through so everyone is fighting to get a spot on the starting 15. We are looking forward to Rd 1 v Fr. Caseys on Saturday August 15 in Feenagh at 7pm but it will be a tough game and we will give everything we have to get the win.
U16 HURLING: Our U16s played Claughaun-St Patricks on Monday evening in Rd1 of the championship. This team has been training hard and had played a couple of challenge games against Patrickswell to prepare for the championship. This was a very entertaining game with lots of quality on show from both sides. All around the field our lads gave everything and showed some great skill. They showed intelligent use of the ball to look up and find each other and they took some great scores. We had our hands full with our opponent's big No.11 who scored 3 goals from play in the first half, but collectively we worked well to control that threat in the second half. We won out in the end on a final score of 2-14 to 3-8. We play Pallasgreen away Monday August 17 at 7pm.
U14 HURLING: Our U14s played Askeaton/Ballysteen/Kilcornan last Wednesday in Croom. This is a very young team with only 2 players on the age, and with one player missing, it proved a very difficult night with our opponents much bigger and stronger. Nonetheless our lads battled very hard and did themselves proud in the face of adversity but lost out well in the end.

PREMIER IHC: Glenroe intermediate hurlers secured their place in the semi-finals of the Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship by virtue of a hard earned 1-20 to 2-14 victory over Knockainey in round 2, played in Kilfinane on Saturday evening last. They had defeated Dromin-Athlacca by the minimum of margins on the previous Saturday. There are a number of things different about Glenroe intermediate hurlers in the past two years in that the team no longer depend on any one individual for scores. As in the previous game, there were eight different players who got their name on the scoreboard. The team and management no longer panic when the games appear to be drifting away from them. They stick to the coached plan and gradually work their way back into the game. The accuracy of team captain, Mark O’Connell, from frees is a delight to watch and shows that the motto “practice makes perfect” is a reality. The large panel of players and team management appear to be a united bunch and players know that they are readily replaced if their form is not up to scratch on any occasion. The players back each other up on the field and many scores come about by player interplay. They now meet Bruff in Round 3 of the championship on Saturday next, to decide who tops the Group, as Bruff also defeated Knockainey and Dromin-Athlacca in the earlier rounds. Team: Ian O’Sullivan; JB Murphy, Patrick McSweeney, Eoin Gallahue; Stephen Fox, Stephen Walsh, David McCarthy (0-1); Donal Kelly, Darren McCarthy (0-1); Mark O’Connell (Capt. 0-9; 0-8 frees), Ciaran Kelly (1-3); Sean Clancy (0-1); Eoin O’Mahony (0-2), Brian O’Connell (0-1) and Eoin Walsh (0-2). Subs: Padraig McGrath for Sean Clancy (45mins), Shaun Moloney for Donal Kelly (52mins).
LOTTO: The jackpot stands at €6,200 for the next draw on Thursday, August 6.

JUNIOR A HURLING A physical game in Bruff in the second round of the championship for our Junior A hurlers as they played Kilteely Dromkeen on Sunday August 2. Both sides opened the game with 2 scores each but on the 10th minute Kilteely Dronkeen struck a hard blow when they found the net to give them a three point lead Mungret St. Pauls ended up chasing throughout the game. Mungret St. Pauls reply was a point from a free with Kilteely Dromkeen pointing four unanswered points from play. Mungret St. Pauls gathered momentum before the half time whistle and scored 5 points to Kilteely Dromkeens 2 bringing the score 0-8 to 1-8. It was Kilteely Dromkeen that had the better restart as they quickly added another 2 points to their tally.

Hitting their stride again Mungret St. Pauls added another 6 points to the score board while Kilteely Dromkeen only pointed 2, this saw both sides level. It only took a minute for both to score again to level the game but the 25th minute Kilteely Dromkeen managed to widen the gap again as they hit the net for the second time. Mungret St. Pauls kept up their efforts but only managed another clean point seeing Kilteely Dromkeen seal the game with a pointed free to take the win.

CAMOGIE: Minor A Plate semi final Blackrock/Effin 3-9, Na Piarsaigh 2-7. Minor A Camogie Plate semi-final – Na Piarsaigh 2-7, Blackrock-Effin 3-9. Our minor camogie team travelled to Effin this Monday evening to take on the hosts. They wasted no time getting into the game with early points from Aine Ní Tiernaigh, Elle O'Regan & Eval Long putting us 0-3 to 0-1 after 10 minutes. The amalgamation side answered with 2-2 of their own before Enya Harrington scored a major all the way from a 45 for us leaving the half time score 2-5 to 1-4. Blackrock hit us with an early second half goal before Lizannna Boylan hit one for the blues leaving it 3-7 to 2-6 at the final water break. Lizanna & others would be denied further goals by an in form Blackrock-Effin keeper who produced several outstanding saves as we sought to close the gap but it was not to be our day. A great performance from our girls who have come one so much in this 4 match campaign. Panel: Ciara Grant, Laura Ahern, Lizanna Boylan (1-0), Robyn Conlon (0-1), Enya Harrington (1-1, 1-0 45, 0-1 free), Fiona Henn, Moya Henn, Orla Hickey, Katie Keane Hannah Kehoe, Eva Long (0-1), Aishling Morrissey, Sarah Murray, Ciara O’Brien, Sarah Stanley (0-1), Orna O’Neill, Elle O’Regan (0-1), Grace Palmer, Rebecca Slater, Aine Tierney (0-2, 0-1 free), Sarah O'Keeffe.
SENIOR HURING: Our senior hurlers were back in action in the second game of the group where our opponents were Ahane. The added pressure of a must win game gave the fixture extra spice which no doubt helped sharpen the focus. The lads didnt leave the side down at all with both hurling well and fit in well in the defensive unit overall. By half time we had opened up a 1-13 to 0-5 lead and headed into the second half with an extra man following a red card on the stroke on half time. The second half following a similiar vein with some excellent points scored. Will Henn capped off a good performance with our second goal to seal a well earned and deserved victory. The final scoreline was Na Piarsaigh 2-23 Ahane 0-9. Na Piarsaigh: Padraig Kennedy, Jerome Boylan, Mike Casey, Kieran Kennedy, Mike Foley, Ronan Lynch, James O'Brien, Thomas Grimes, William O'Donoghue (c), Conor Boylan, Kevin Downes, David Dempsey, Peter Casey, Adrian Breen, William Henn. Ronan Lynch 0-4 (3 frees, 1 65), Kevin Downes 0-2, David Dempsey 0-3, Peter Casey 0-2, Adrian Breen 1-4, William Henn 1-8 (0-5 frees). That result now means that Kilmallock play Ahane this weekend and a draw or win for the Balbec would see them into a semi final. A loss for Kilmallock would see all 3 teams on 2 points and therefore Na Piarsaigh would progress to the semi final on scoring difference.

JUNIOR A HURLING: Patrickswell recorded its first win of the County Championship against Askeaton in Adare. The opening stages of the match were low-scoring and it took Patrickswell eight minutes to break the deadlock. From that moment onwards, the pace of scoring increased. By the 15th minute, the teams were level at 0-2 apiece. However, Pa Dundon's team began to dominate the possession and chances. Two additional points were notched in a five-minute spell to establish a 0-4 to 0-2 lead. The remainder of the first half belonged to Patrickswell and we reached the interval at 0-9 to 0-4 ahead. The second half started dramatically when Paul O'Brien plundered a close-range goal within fifty seconds of the throw-in. Patrickswell now had a substantial buffer of eight points and they continued to build on their growing superiority. By the 35th minute, the 'Well led comfortably by 1-13 to 0-5. Over the next ten minutes, we outscored Askeaton by four points to two points. The second half water break was taken in the 45th minute and Patrickswell held their biggest lead at 1-17 to 0-7.

LIMERICK IHC: It finished St Patricks 0-11 Knockaderry 0-15. Disappointment for our Intermediate hurling team on Saturday evening in Mick Neville Park, losing to West side Knockaderry, after failing to fire in an under par performance. The first quarter was a tight affair with Knockaderry leading 0-5 to 0-4, Gearoid Hegarty with three points and Padraig Reale from midfield adding our fourth. The second "quarter" after the water break followed much the same pattern, a tight contest. Wayne Cronin operating at full forward and Padraig Reale added a point each, but Knockaderry led at the short whistle 0-8 to 0-6. On the resumption Knockaderry extended their lead to four, Pa Mullins replied with a vital score and Jason Mullins added another. Knockaderry again pressed ahead by four points, then a big moment arrived in the game when a gilt edged goal chance was brilliantly saved by the Knockaderry custodian and a big opportunity had passed. The final ten minutes were of a stop start nature and in a game that had little or no incident and played in good nature, was to see dismissals on both sides and put a stop to any momentum we looked to build. A performance the team and management will look to put behind themselves with little time to dwell, a quick turnaround, and another vital championship match against Newcastle West in Croagh next Saturday at 7pm. Team: David Geary, Gearoid O’Sullivan, Gearoid Phelan, Jack Greenwood, Pa Mullins, Gearoid Hegarty, Sean Mortell, Padraig Reale, Travis Quaid, Jason Mullins, Niall Phelan, Brendan Mullins, Sam Forde, Wayne Cronin, Adam Mcnamara. Subs: Colin Earls for Sam Forde, Michael Geary for Adam Mcnamara, Stephen Murphy for Niall Phelan.
