G.A.A. Notes 14/07/2020

Junor Hurling: Our junior hurlers open their account against Fourmilewater on Sunday at 2pm in Ballymac.  This years league is based on a home and away arrangement.  This is the juniors first competitive action since we bowed out to the same opposition at thesemi final stage last year.  With nothing on feel free to travel down and support our players. 

Dog Fouling:  It has yet again come to our attention that dog fouling is occuring on our grounds.  Signs visibly displayed at the entrance of the field state, that dogs are not permitted.  This is not the first time we have had to raise this matter. There are plenty of non playing fields in the countryside if one wants to walk their dogs safely.  They are not permitted on the GAA grounds so please adhere to these rules and consider the players. 

Deise Draw:  With the lotto out of action for the time being, we have the Deise Draw as our only viable income to draw on in the coming months.  It is a vital component for the running of our club.  We would appreciate if everyone would endeavour to support this draw.  The draw is more condensed with the current climate.  The original April draw has been put back to August and will now run from Auguust to December.  €90 for the year and €15 a month.  Of the €15 we will retain €10.50

With this in mind the opening draw on

Wednesday August 26th 

Friday September 18th,

Wednesday October 14th 

Friday November 6th,

Tuesday December 1st,

Tuesday December 22nd

This will give the clubs a minimum of three weeks between draws. 

Anyone who is ibterested should contact David O'Brien, the Tallow Whatsapp page or the Tallow Facebook Page

Membership: Should be handed into Billie-Jean Sheehan in Chapel St.

Tallw GAA Notes, 09/06/2020

Tallow GAA Notes.

Return to Play Roadmap: A month earlier than we expected but the field will be open on the 29th of June instead of July. They will surely be a massive enthusiasm to use our facilities after such a long lock down. The training of teams will be a different matter. To attend training one must fill in a health questionnaire and take a body temperature. Anyone who's temperature is over 37.5 will have to return home. Any juvenile much have parental signature on them participating. The best practice of health hygiene to adhere to is of washing hands and keeping your distance. Dressing rooms and clubhouses will remain closed until Stage 5 on the 10th August, but the toilets will be available. A Covid Supervisor will be assigned to each team. Club competitions can start back from 31st July and must finish by October 11th. Group training will start back on the 20th July. County board will decide on what form the competitions will be based. All this logic is based on public health standards, public health advise and government direction.

Covid 19 is the big winner!

Yes as all schoolboy soccer comes to a halt due to Covid 19 we will all have to make enormous sacrafices going forwerd.  With all sport cancelled going into the summer months we now ask ourselves when will we be back to the sction.  Already the past six to seven weeks have seen more blank weekends due to the weather are now faced with a different more difficult problem.  If rumors reaching use are true then we could be without our football for some months.  More problems for the league committee and the clubs. Interesting weeks ahead no doubt. 

Sympathy
The club extends its deepest sympathy to the Sheehan family Convent St. on the sudden passing of Mairéad.  May she rest in peace

Enormous Sacrifces

Over the next few months our players, coaches, parents, partners and sponsors will have to make some big changes in their lifestyle.  We would ask everyone to do what the HSE as us to do.  Remember we are doing it for each other.  It will not be easy but we will all come out the other end all the beter for it. 

Best of Luck

To Mary Pratt who is on Telly Bingo this week.  Last week Trish Feeney was picked from spar supermarked and on the same show out came Mary Pratt who does the Telly bingo and purchased her book from Valerie in Tallow Post Office, well done to everyone.

Plenty of Stock In Centra

Timmy and Ted Keniry have seen a very busy week at their Centra store in the centre of Talow.  It's been very very busy all week said Tim, but we have a terrific back up with plenty of extra deliveries coming into the store and this will continue.  People will now stay in tow to shop instead of going outside of the town to shop especially with long ques outside some of the larger stores.  
Kenirys will have a delivery service to those poeple unable to get out shopping, especially the elderly, stated Tim.  People need to give us a ring and we will get their groceries delivered to them that day. 
This Covid 19 could be with us for some time so it is important that our customers do what the HSE asks of all of us added Tim. 

Pubs Cosed

it could be a thirsty few months with the new us with the pubs closoing.  Everyone is being asked to play their part.  Did we every think something like this would happen.  This virus is giving everyone problems.  Hopefully everyone will come out the other end  Other stores like Spar and Daybreak have plenty of stock so there is no need for people to panic. 

Helaine McGrath of McGraths Pharmacy also has plenty of stock.  People are being asked to stay behind the table in the entrance to the chemist and the staff will take orders and people can then call back for their medicines.  No customers are allowed in the shop to save people gathering while waiting for the orders to be filled.  The word from Helaine is that people need to stay calm and get their medication as they would normally would. No need for panic buying.

Jake Henley turned in a powerful performance here as he tormented Mogeely's defence and grabbed a hat trick for himself.

The opening goal came after 10 minutes when a free kick to Utd saw Ciaran Kelleher kick  end up in Mogeely's net. Utd increased their lead after 25 minutes when Josh Good set up Jake Henley for the first of his hat trick.

Mogeely pulled a goal back in the 28th minute but again Henley put Utd in front with his second goal in the 26th minute and Utd held this lead till the break.

Jack McDonnell brought off a terrific save for Utd four minutes into the second half and a minute later Mogeely added a second to come back into the game. Henley secured the points for Utd in the 55th minute when he scored form close range. Henley's hat trick and his outstanding performance made him man of the match.

I wonder is this a record. Rhiannon Keniry grabbed a hat trick, her brother Jake got one, Isaac Doyle (2) Adam Forbes  also got a hat trick. Lee Curley and Akeem Veale Said. Well done to all the boys and girls. I bet the coach Natalie was happy.

U 17 Friendly

Lismore 6 Brideview Utd 0

The second half was a disaster for Utd who had turned in a good performance in the first half but fell away totally in the second half.

The first half saw keeper Shane Martin bring off some terrific saves. At the other end Almeida, Costello, O'Dowd, Pratt and O'Brien all went close but at the break the sides were scoreless. 

Some bad mistakes by Utd's defence in the opening 10 minutes of the second half saw Lismore 3-0 up. They added three more before the final whistle sounded.

Utd: S. Martin, D. Spillane, S. Roche, C. Hurley, E. Scotton, E. Costello, A. O'Dowd, G. Murphy, G. Almeida, G. Pratt, G. O'Brien, Res used G. Chambers.

Brideview Utd AFC Schloolboy Notes

The Weather is the Winner

Yes another blank weekend due to the terrible wet weather which we had for most of the past week. We look forward to getting back into the togs and socks this coming weekend.

Santa on the way

Yes it's almost here. The date Friday 6th December is fast approaching. Santa will arrive at 7.00 pm sharp.  The price of the visit to Santa is just €5. Full details next week.

You boys in green

A full Aviva in full voice could not get Mick and the boys over the line. Without doubt one of the best disp[lays for a long time a 1-1 draw was not enough to see us qualify. We now go to a knock out game against Slovakia. If we win that we face another away game to the winners of Bosnia and Northern Ireland. A large Tallow gang enjoyed the craic in the Ballsbridge Hotel while more Tallow boys were in the Landsdown Hotel.

A Tallow visit

 Mary Butler T.D. will attend St. Patrick's Hall on Saturday week December 7th at 11.00am.  Problem can be solved by giving Mary a shout.

Christmas Appeal

 A big night takes place in the Corner House all in aid of The Lions Club Christmas Appeal. Music will be by Sunset Sound and friends. Always a good night and the money raised going to a good cause. So why not drop into the Corner House Bar this Saturday night.

Birthday Party with a difference.

Two birthday parties, one in Clancy's Bar on Saturday night which was great craic and Jackie is still only a young girl of 30. By the way Sean had a lovely haircut.

The other party was in Waterford and by God was there a story here. One of the guests got on the train for Carlow fell asleep and ended up in Dublin. A Tallow man no doubt.

Cois Bhride: Well done to the Cois Bhride U17 footballers who won the Division 3 County Final. Mossie got so excited that he had to leave the fieldd.

Forty five years ago Tallow captured the 1974 Intermediate hurling title. It coupled on an underage success that propelled us to Senior level and a glorious period of the eighties.

I spoke to three members of that team who were involved that year. Billy Sheehan (BS) the captain from full back, Jimmy Cronin a wing back on the team (JC) and TomDoyle the centre forward (TD) and asked a few questions and give information to all three. 

In eight years all our near neighbours (Shamrocks, Lismore, Cappoquin and Ballyduff) got promoted to the senior grade. The Western section seemed very competitive?

JC: iT was, you could add Fourmile and Geraldines and it was very competitive.

BS: The Intermediate championship was very competitive in the early 70's. Cappoquin beat us in the Western Final in 1970 I think. We won the West in '71 but were beaten by Butlerstown in the County Final. Cappoquin beat us again in 72 or '73. We had John Ryan sent off early in the first half.

TD: It was brilliant to be involved in it. Some great tight games.

 

We won the Keaneland Cup against Lismore (senior grade) earlier in the year. Surely a good sign?

JC: The Keaneland Cup was just an appetizer for things to come and gave us belief in ourselves.

BS: In '74 we beat Lismore in the Keaneland. Lismore were one of the top senior teams then. That win gave us the confidence to go on from there.

TD: The Keaneland Cup was a mighty tournament. We never looked upon it as either Senior or Intermediate, just another game but fantastic atmosphere.

 

We received a walkover from Clashmore in the first round. How did this happen?

JC: Can't remember the Clashmore walk over.

TD: No idea. Ask Eddie Cunningham. He was always the brains behind us!

The following round we beat Fourmilewater 3-8 to 1-6...

JC:The Fourmile game was a very physical encounter but our hurling and our fitness levels were super on the day. This day will long be remembered for the death of our own Bill Sheehan a true Tallow man.

TD: The game against Fourmilewter will always be rememberd here in Tallow as the day the late Bill Sheehan passed away on the sideline and with another great Gael and friend of the late Co, Councillor Ciaran O Riain praying the Rosary over Bill. Two true gentlemen supporting their own teams who both loved the game of hurling. Leaba i mbeasc na n-Aingil go raibh acu.

 

We were due to play Cappoquin in the semi-final of the west in September but due to their involvement in senior football it was held up. Training was on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Achallenge game was played against Watergrasshill. How did you find the time gap?

JC:The time gap was no problem in them times. All we wanted to do was be in the field. There was no social media or apps available then so it was easy to motivate players.

BS: There was a big gap between some of the games. We were also playing football at the time. So between training and football we kept going. I also think at the time we were invited into tournaments, in Castlelyons in 74. We beat Sarsfields of Cork who were Senior at the time. We played other tournaments in Castletownroche, Ballynoe and Kilworth. All these were part of festivals. So we stayed around for a few drinks!!!!! I think that social side helped the team to bond in a good way.

TD: Probably went to Redbarn with the rest of the lads.

 

Tallow played Cappoquin four times in the 1970's prior to the 1974 semi final. We were only victorious on one occasion. Did that bother you?

JC: All western teams were always competitive especially as all the games were considered to be local derby's and played as such.

TD: No, you win you lose. Take both equally.

 

The semi final of the west against Cappoquin waasn't played until 24th October. Two months without a game. If that happened now there would be an outcry...

JC: Looking back at some of our fixtures this year not a lot has changed.

TD: I don't see why. Just play it when it comes. What would you be getting excited about? We played an U21 football game in Tramore the day before Christmas Eve.

We also went into the game minus John Lyons our full back with an eye injury and Tom Doyle with a leg injury...

JC: Yes the two lads were a huge loss especially with the size of our panel but that was Tallow then and we played with them on our minds. We had all come up through the Junior ranks together and spirit was the driving force of the day.

BS: We lost John Lyons the week of the Cappoquin game. I went full back in his place. We also introduced Raymond O'Brien (only 17 then).

We beat Cappoquin 2-5 to 1-5. They had won a senior football county final previous to this. We had two goals disallowed for square balls in a game we should have won more comfortably.

JC: Yes we won by a goal at the finish against against our bogey side and a team that produced some of the best hurlers in the western division.

TD: Two goals disallowed? Probably McDonnell charging the goalie.

The Western Final against Ballyduff played before a record crowd in Lismore. They had three Waterford seniors at the time. We won 2-8 to 1-3. Bob Ryan got two goals. Tom Doyle was back from injury, Mutty Curley switched from the forwards to the backs. Billy Sheehan had manned the square. The team had a very settled look about it.

Bar Ned in goals, Richie corner back and Johnny Curley, the team was very young...

BS: I think the team that played in the county final was (ages in brackets) Ned Power, Tom McSweeney (25), B Sheehan (24), R McNamara,J Cronin (20), L O Brien (21), M Curley (24) J McDonnell (24) K Ryan (17), R O Brien (17), T Doyle (23), E Condon (20), J Curley (25), B Ryan, S Tracey (20). Apart from Ned, Richie and Billy Ryan the rest of the team were all under 25. Raymond O'Brien and Kieran Ryan were only 17. Very young although most of them had played for Waterford underage.

TD: We grew up from U14 together with Ned Power always at the helm of it  and it was fantastic that the day arrived when we hurled on the same team together. What a great man he was indeed. Even when in goal he was constantly coaching to the backs in front of him. He played at centre forward as well with us. Richie McNamara would have been those few years above us but was a hugely dependable and skillful hurler and kept many an intercounty hurler scoreless on occasions. Johnny Curley was another of that era and has a Junior County medal as well and is as passionate today as ever and a true hurling man.

 

The county final in November was delayed after the death of the president and was not called off until 11.30pm on a Saturday night. Not exactly ideal...

TD: I don't remember that but it would have been the same for both teams.

 

How did losing the '71 county final to Butlerstown help in the '74 decider?

JC: We spoke about that in the run up to the '74 final and nobody wanted to feel like that again. It was eaasy to motivate us.

BS: I think the loss in '71 definitely helped the the progress of the team. Also the Keaneland Cup had a very positive effect. It gave us the belief that we were good enough, also the fact that Lismore were senior and the Shamrock were senior made more determined than ever to get up.

TD: I would say absolutely none except that we were probably more mature a few years later.

We destroyed Clonea in the final by 18 points. A dream scenario... A 38 year wait to play senior hurling ended...

JC: The final was one way traffic and one that set us on the road to the holy grail senior status. If ever a Tallow team deserved this we were them, a dedicated bunch that always punched above their weight.

TD: To be quite honest I don't remember anything about the game but it must have been great for the club. However the great battles against the local intermediate teams were gone and I never enjoyed the senior games to the same degree. Walsh Park or Fraher Field with a small crowd as opposed to a packed Lismore or Cappoquin venue is a no brainer. The local derby atmosphere was a thing of the past.

 

A lorry carried the team from the bridge to the square. Club president Jimmy Cunningham, Chairman Tom Mulcahy, Secretary John Russell, Ned Power and captain Billy Sheehan spoke. Do you recall any of this?

JC: I remember the lorry and the bonfires that were lit by Gareth Collins and also the singing of Noreen Bawn. All the happy faces in the crowd until I went into Lukies and the rest is history. 

TD: No I don't but it was surely great for all those and the town and parish in particular. As with Ballysaggart this year it was a historic occasion in the overall context of the club and I  now realise what it must have meant to the older generation of the time who had been involved in the club all of their lives. My overall view is that the GAA is entrenched in our lives. Many, many games and occasions I cannot recall but the many great friends I have made, I most certianly can.

Junior Football Quarter Final Tallow 1-11 Geraldines 2-10.

In sweltering twenty degree heat we engaged in knockout football on Saturday afternoon last. The Indian summer had arrived and we got off to a good start with good interplay between Darragh Mulcahy and Jordan Henley set up the meandering Jake Beecher who curled over a delightful first point with less than a minute gone. The next few scores over the following five minutes were all frees and we accounted for one of these from Ryan Grey. It was noticeable however on that physicality of this game was up a notch or two from our previous encounter and there was no easy ball here. The pressure that we had on our kickers meant we had an increasing wides tally and it wasn't until the 17th minute that we troubled the scoreboard after a lung bursting run from Jordan, he offloaded to Ryan who scored a nice point. Ryan converted another free seven minutes later and we trailed by the minimum after 24 minutes 0-4 to 0-5. Great work again by Jordan set up Darragh Mulcahy for a goal chance that we spurned. A minute to go in the half and Ryan curled over a lovely free on the left hand side of goal about thirt five meters out but disaster struck as Geraldines scored a goal just on the conclusion of the half and we trailed at half time by four points, Tallow 0-5 Geraldines 1-6.

Two alterations were made in the second half with Dean coming in  corner back and Tommy coming in corner forward. Robbie Geary positioned himself manning the square and gave a powerful second half performance. Ryan adding to his tally with a good hard worked point. He beat two men before kicking over from his right in a central position, He had another goal opportunity on the 37th minute but Jake's effort was saved. There was heated exchanges and it threatened to spill over at times. Bob McCarthy turned into a human battering ram and was hitting off fellas that moved or threatened to move. Jordan ran himself into the ground, he got some hard hits (fair I might add) and did one somersault that a Russian gymnast would be proud of over the railing.


 

Kieran Geary had a free on the thirteen. With some quarters shouting "to put it over", his scuffled shot billowed the net. Geraldines levelled the game again and then took the lead before Ryan deadlocked the teams again after he picked up a rebound off a Donnchadh blocked down ball. Kieran levelled the match again for the third time in the second half with a good point from play. A minute later as an uncontested kick out resulted in the ball working up the field and the Geraldines scored a goal. Ryan put over a long range free off the ground with a minute to go but we couldn't get a goal to save us. I was critical of our first round performance but the team had showed a lot more heart and football ability in the later stages of the competition. We thank Sean, Tom Bear and Dinny for managing the team and for Diarmuid on first aid.

Team: Michael Curley, Alan Curley, Jake Neville, Robbie Geary, Jake Beecher (0-1), Kieran Frazer, Kevin Henley, Kieran Geary (1-2 1-1f), Jordan Henley(0-1), Ian Beecher, Ryan Grey (0-7 0-1), Kieran Frazer, Kevin Henley, Kieren Henley, Kieran Geary (1-2 1-1f), Jordan Henley(0-1), Ian Beecher, Ryan Grey(0-7 0-4f), Dusty McCarthy, Darah Buckley, Donnchadh Mulcahy, Darragh Mulcahy.

Déise Draw: The last Déise draw is  on at the end of the month. Could all money be handed into to one's promoters as soon as possible.

Five in a Row: The Dublin juggernaut keeps rolling and they completed the first men's senior five in row in the history of the association. There is no doubting their class and athleticism and it doesn't look like it's slowing very soon.  Four under 21's in this decade, forward of the year in U20 football Cian Archer not even on the panel until next year, a manager you took the ego out of Dublin, the financial clout that leaves everyone in their wake, playing nearly all their games in Croke Park, need I go on?

Croke Park Treatment: The red carpet treatment was out in Croke Park on Sunday last for a Tallow man. How lucky was William Murphy that Siobhán was on the Jubilee panel for Waterford!

Successful Summer Camps at Tallow Enterprise Centre

Busy Summer at Tallow Enterprise Centre 

 

Summer 2019 is almost at a close with the children returning to school in a few short weeks.  The Summer has been very busy at Tallow Training & Enterprise Centre.  Our summer camps have been hugely successful this year with large attendances at all camps.  We had two very successful weeks of Cookery with the children going home each day with wonderful baking and savoury dishes.  Drama Camp with Marie, was also very well attended with children having great fun, role playing and trying out their acting skills.  This week saw the end our Computer Camp, again with the children learning new skills and getting comfortable with using the computer.  We also had a very successful Movie morning with another one on Thursday 22nd our final one of the Summer.  So all in all a busy summer.  Keep an eye on our facebook page for updates of autumn Kids classes and Movies.

Deise Draw: While the standard last Wednesday of the month normally applies this months draw is on a week early. Could all promoters and participation's try and have money collected by this weekend.

Inter Ccounty Matters: While both Waterford underage teams this past week were badly beaten you would hear a lot of ill talk about getting rid of the county board. It is all find and well to say that but think logically behind who is saying it and who they say will replace them. They is very little new blood involved in clubs at the moment and it's the standard old reliable's who undertake the majority of the work . It is fine and well to knock but are the begrudgers doing anything in their own locality to least have a chance to question those they vilify?

Junior Championship: We play Ring in our final league game on Friday next. As of now I don't know the venue or time, so check out the Tallow GAA what's app for confirmation.

Junior Hurling Championship: Tallow 2-21 Ballyduff 1-10.

The starting team showed a few changes from our last outing and  Seán Slattery played in goals for what I would expect was  the first time in his career.  We started the first half in a slow manner. Evan put over a few frees before we began to settle. He  added two points from play in this period and with Donnacha and Kevin industrious we went  two points up as we entered the 
twenty minute of the game.  Ballyduff orchestrated a goal following on a dropped ball at the edge of the square a minute later. 
Mark went on a long solo run that ended with his shot being desperately unlucky to come off the post.He did add two points from play and his switch to the wing emancipated his hurling. As the half ended we were two points up as the scoreline read 
Tallow 0-13 Ballyduff 1-8. A few choice words by management at half time seem to have a telling affect in the second half. Ballyduff did score the first few points of the second half but that was their lot for the game. The vibrancy of the left hand side of our attack was the telling factor in our win. Eamonn Forbes ran himself into the 
ground. His intelligence use of the ball and the lively Donnchadh Mulcahy piercing runs lead firmly in our superiority. Donnachadhdid reputable damage with his escapades and profited in two points that were very hard earned. His ground stroke on forty 
minutes was repelled only for Shane Feeney to pull first time to the net. Our defense settled a lot better in the  second half with 
both Noel Condon and Eric Hickey benefiting from positional changes. Evan Sheehan billowed the net from close range on the 
fifty second minute and we finished out the game with scores from Eoin and Mark Stewart. Management can feel very happy withour win and it was nice to see us progress with our absentees. There seem a mad rush to run off all the Junior hurling and 
football in July so as our yet we should have of league section finished by the end of month.

Senior Hurling League Semi Final: Tallow 0-12 De La Salle 2-14

With both teams short of a number of regulars, it was no surprise that it took a while for this Senior Hurling League semi final to come to life. In fact, after ten minutes the score was 3pts to 2 in favour of the city side. Both Tallow points coming from Thomas Ryan placed balls after hard won frees by Paul O'Brien. A great ball from Thomas Daly found Donnachadh Mulcahy in space and he drove through the heart of the defence but was unlucky to hit the post. This was to prove Tallow's only goal chance in the first period and was quickly punished as De LaSalle goaled in the 13th minute. 4 further points from Thomas Ryan, 2 from frees, saw us leave the field 5 points in arrears. DLS 1-08. Tallow 0-6.

The second half saw both sides trade point for point. Tallow pushed hard to close the 5 point lead and Jordan Henley was unlucky to only get a white flag instead of a green on 59 mins. A goal then would have reduced the deficit to 3pts. But once again after a Tallow goal opportunity, De La Salle punished us with their own strike to the back of the net for the last score of the game to win out 2-14 to 0-12pts.

All in all, this was a good league campaign with some good wins along to reach our first league semi final in a number of years. Attentions and preparations will now be turned back to Championship when we face reigning County and Munster champions in Ballygunner on Sunday 28th July.

Brideview Utd AFC Notes

Youth Cup

Fraser Cup Final

A thriller in Tallow

Brideview Utd 6 Valley Rangers 7

No this was no penalty shoot out , the score above was the actual score at the final whistle. It left managers, players and supporters drained.

 Rangers went in front in the 5th minute. Ben Aherne scored for Utd to bring the sides level. Aherne was in again after 12 minutes to put Utd 2-1 in front. A minute later the sides were again level at 2-2 inside the opening 13 minutes.

Kieran Crawford put Utd ahead in the 31st minute with a great header and Utd led 3-2 at the break. Could we have another second half like the first. The answer was yes we could and leave fans of both sides drained. The second half began where we left off. Just two minutes in a Josh Sheehan cracker ended up in Rangers net. It was now 4-2 to Utd.

Back came Rangers and pulled a goal back in the 60th minute. An O.G. for Utd in the 63rd minute saw Utd go back to a two goal lead at 5-3.

Then the game knocked the fans for six as we had four goals in four minutes . We could hardly blink. A penalty to Rangers in the 75th minute which was scored. It was now 5-4. A minute later it was 5-5 as Rangers scored. Another minute another penalty to Valley and now Rangers led 6-5. Kieran Crawford grabbed an equaliser for Utd, now it was 6-6.

It was too much for many of the hoarse fans. Then Rangers struck five minutes in injury time to run out winners at 7-6. What a game we had and we congratulate Rangers on their victory.

Utd's squad: E.Costello, E.Scotton, W.Cunningham,D.Costello,J.Chambers, S.Casey, B.Aherne (Capt), K.Crawford, G.Sheehan, T.Dalton, J.Ammeida, B.Trigg.

Ref. J.Murphy

Presentation

The presentation of the Cup and medals saw Liam Fraser on hand much to the delight of Rangers Managers, players and supporters.

Injured

Best wishes to Ethan and Ben who both were injured on Sunday morning laast. I hope Ethan was still able to eat his birthday cake. I got none I might add Ha! Ha! Helen

Senior Hurling Championship:

Tallow   2-19         Clonea 1-14

It may not have been as comfortable as the eight point winning margin suggests but Tallow, without reaching any great heights did enough to garner their first championship points against Clonea in the Fraher Field on Saturday evening. Newly promoted Clonea will rue the many missed chances they had, especially in the first half when they had a strong breeze at their backs. Tallow handled the wind better and were not near as profligate with possession as the opposition.

Clonea got off to a lively start, popping over two well taken points from play. It was a short lived lead as Darrah Buckley (f) and Tommy Ryan (from play) responded immediately to level with less than 5 minutes gone. Billy Power cut over a beauty of a point from the stand side line to briefly restore his side’s slender lead. Points were traded with Darah Buckley striking well against the wind. Ian Beecher weighed in with a brace. With 25 minutes played, and Tallow just a point to the good, Tommy Ryan seared a path through the Clonea rearguard to set up Kenneth for his first goal. The “small fellah” is revelling in his new role in attack and added another goal early in the second half. Darah Buckley clipped over 2 more points to extend Tallow’s lead to 5 lead. Yet again Clonea rallied with a goal and a point to reduce Tallow’s advantage to a single point (1-9 to 1-8) as the half time whistle sounded.

The first 15 minutes of the second half was a tight enough affair although Ken’s second goal gave us a degree of comfort. Rob Beecher got too critical points from distance at a crucial stage of the game to hand the initiative to his team It boosted Tallow and we reeled off a succession of points from Tommy (4), Paul O Brien (2) and Jordan. Clonea on the other hand managed just 6 points (all frees) over the entire second period. The Eastern team were well in the game for much of the second half but for some reason faded completely over the last 12 minutes to allow Tallow ease home.

Tallow: Shaun O Sullivan, D O Brien, Jake Beecher, Mark O Brien, K Geary, Robbie Geary, Mikey Tobin, Rob Beecher (0-2), Jordan Henley (0-1), Ian Beecher (0-2), Thomas Ryan (0-6, 1f), Bob McCarthy, Paul O Brien (0-2), Ken Kearney (2-0), Darah Buckley (0-6), Tommy Daly, Dean Beecher, Rob O Sullivan, Donnchadh Mulcahy, Brian McCarthy, Jake Neville, Mark Stewart, Eoin McGrath, Eoin Condon, Eamonn Forbes, Noel Condon, Ben Aherne, Ryan Grey (inj).

We play Ballygunner next in our final group game. We have no confirmed date yet but it may be the end of July. We have reached the league semi-final. Awaiting a fixture.

Comhbhron:

On behalf of Tallow GAA club we wish to extend our sincere condolences to club vice president Mike Prendergast and family on the sad passing of his sister Theresa Clancy (nee Prendergast). Ar dheis lamh De go raibh si.

County Stuff:

I’m filling in for our PRO Fada this week. He gave me carte blanche (just showing off my French) to delve in and cut loose with no subject off limits. I wondered did he want a dissertation or a thesis on the merits of Waterford hurling or the metaphysical versifiers. I am more in to the Romantic poets myself like Keats and Byron although for obvious reasons Yeats is my favourite. I have studied the works of the Bard, enthralled and enthused particularly by Macbeth, his greatest Tragedy. We were mesmerised by the majesty of Gerard Manley introduced to us by Fr Michael Mansfield. We knew Kerouac as well. Country bumpkins from Tallow and places. We too read To Kill a Mockingbird thanks to John Cullinane, God rest him, who was an inspirational teacher. He engendered loyalty and admiration. He awoke our imaginations.

What has all this to do with Waterford hurling you may ask? Well it’s the thing to do at the moment, draw your analogies from stage and field. It’s just it feels like the stage is crowded now. Maybe it’s time for some to exit? You’ve had your time in the sun but you can’t leave it go. You just don’t get it! I’ll keep it short as it has been played out ad nausea in the media and wherever hurling folk gather. It goes back to I think 2013 when Kilkenny turned us over in a league game in Nolan Park, heralding a dismal change in Waterford hurling. It was defensive, negative, frustrating and soul destroying – and that’s only for the supporters. Many hurling people stopped going to games. I can’t see how our players could have enjoyed it either, especially our forward (usually we just had one). I don’t know if our current management will do the business but they deserve a chance without the ghost of Banquo hovering in the background.

Comhghairdeas:

Congratulations to Colin Cunningham who completed the Ironman endurance course on Sunday in Youghal. Well done Bubs.

Scoil Mhuire Award:

Congratulations to the staff and pupils of Scoil Mhuire who received the new GAA 5 Star Centre Flag for their participation in the Scheme. This was the first year of the scheme and 30% of Waterford schools participated, the highest in the country

Brideview Utd AFC Schoolboy Notes

Big game on Thursday

 This coming Thursday will see Utd's U12 team in action in the DB Sport sponsored Cup Final against neighbours Lismore. Our lads got a tough game in the semi-final from Ardmore running out winners 3-1 at the end of a very exciting and tough game.

Utd will need to be in top form against neighbours Lismore. It's a big Utd panel and Manager Liam "   " Ahern and his assistant Stephen Murphy will have a tough job picking the starting line up.

The following is the full panel.

Shay Pratt, Aidan Murphy (Capt), Billy Murphy, Darragh O' Brien, Ben Sheehan, Daniel Henley, Joseph McDonnell, Danny Power, Gearoid Hynes, Jack Henley, Dean Cronin, Sean Murphy, Alex Good,Paul Henley, Isaac Almeida. We wish the boys the best of luck and if you can turn up and support the boys.

Well done Mick.

Yes Republic of Ireland Manager Mick McCarthy whose father Charlie was born in Tallow is getting his players to perform and ground out results. It was not easy against Denmark in Copenhagen, especially in the second half. 

No doubt Mick will have brought in some new players against Gibraltar On Monday night last. Could we see Doherty and O'Dowda back in the starting line up. Let's hope for a victory here and keep us on top of the table.

DB Sports U14 Cup

Heavy defeat for United.

Our U14 Cup game against Cappoquin/Railway saw our lads go down to a heavy defeat. It now looks like our Academy games will take place in Leonard Fraser Park on the last two Saturdays of the month.

Our season is now coming to an end and no doubt many managers will say thanks be to God as it's been a very long season. No doubt the League committee will be working hard during the closed season to sort out the fixtures.

Result DB Sports U14 Cup

Brideview Utd 1 Cappoquin/Railway 6

The visitors had this game wrapped up at the break as they led 4-0. They piled on the pressure in the second half and ran out easy winners. Our scorer here in the second half was Alan Hurley.

Utd. squad all played: Alex Good, Taylor Twohig, Alan Hurley, Ian Martin, Ciaran Lenehan, Josh Good, Alex Bennett, Callum McCarthy, Jack McDonnell, Luca Tobin, Stephen Murphy, Danny Power, Aidan Murphy, Argana Cantwell.

Academy Days

The Academy final days were never as late. The 8-10 year olds Academy day goes ahead on Saturday 22nd June while the following Saturday will see the U7,U9 and U11 taking place in Tallow.

Sympathy

The Club extends its deepest sympathy to the Moroney family Chapel Street on the sad passing of Joe. Joe I believe was the oldest person in Tallow. May he rest in peace.

Lip Sync.

Another good night in Lizzy Langtons for what is now becoming a great night of entertainment for the locals. Many local groups and individuals performrd on the night. The winners, if there is such a thing, was that famous James Clancy and J.P. Kellegher. Well done lads and indeed to all who took part. We will have more on this in the coming months.

Cup Final

Junior Football : Tallow 3-07  Old Parish 1-10.

We recorded our first victory in the Junior football championship in Ardmore on Friday last.  Eoin Condon operating in the Kieran Donaghy mould scored 1-1 in the first half and set up Darragh Mulcahy for his goal. Kieran Geary having a very profitable first half along with the workmanlike Bob McCarthy had to retire at half time with a leg injury. His lose was felt in the second in which Darah Buckley struck a beauty to the roof of the net. The platform of our win was mainly down to the very solid half back line. Kieran covered well for his two energizer bunnies beside him in which Kevin Henley and Darragh Mulcahy excelled. We faded at the end but the first victory of our campaign would have pleased the management.

Waterford v Limerick : A win here would generate a momentum that could qualify us for the quarter final. The All Ireland champions are surely hurt by their below par performance against Cork but what of Waterford? A lot was made of the home advantage of Walsh park, they need to garner that and make it a fortress and show lifeness in that a team  collective will be enough to over power the Treaty men.

A great game of football here between these two local teams. Utd took the lead early in the first half when Danny Power scored a great goal. Joseph McDonnell added goal number two when he chipped the keeper . Utd led 2-0 at the break.

Utd's players all took part:Darragh O Brien, Sean Mangan, Daniel Henley, Isaac Almeida, Ben Sheehan, Michael Murphy, Adam Pratt, Tadgh McCormack, Lukasz Modei, Jordan Murphy.

Sympathy

The Club extends it's deepest sympathy to the Ryan Family Mount Fair on the sad passing of Teresa. May she rest in peace.

Sympathy also to the Tracy Family on the sad passing of Maggie. May she rest in peace.

Thanks boys and girls

Yes a big thank you to all the boys and girls who turned up for their march on to the field with both Junior teams before the Cup Final. The kids were treated to some goodies which they really enjoyed. They then played a game during the half time break. 

So thanks to the parents, coaches and the boys and girls for adding to the final.

Well Done lads

After a terrific first half the game died a bit in the second half with both keepers seldom being tested. Extra time failed to see a winner. So it went down to a penalty shootout which the A team won. However we congratulate both teams for making it a great evening and doing both themselves and the Club proud.

Sponsors

Centra who are terrific sponsors of the Junior club left no stone unturned as both dressing rooms were well stocked up with water, Lucozade, fruit and Jaffa cakes which was much appreciated by both teams.

Brideview Utd Junior and Schoolboy Notes

Two Teams in Semi Finals

Next weekend promises to be a hectic one for our Junior club. Both our A and B teams are involved in The Semi Finals of the Ned Barry cup. What are the odds on both teams reaching the final. It would be first ever for the club. Our A team were already through to the semi final but our B team won a thriller on Sunday morning last.

Result: Ned Barry Quarter Final, Kinsalebeg Celtic 1, Brideview Utd B 2.

Yes our B team advanced to the cup semi final after a hard fought victory away in Kinsalebeg. Ahearne was first into action for Utd after 11 minutes but he shot wide from close range. The opening goal came in the 14th minute when Mark Stewart beat the full back and gave a great through ball to Ahearne to shoot home. A David Kingston cross saw Stewarts volley come back off the post and was cleared. The homeside grabbed an equaliser in the 23rd minute and the sides went in level at the break 1-1, so it was all to play for in the second half. In the 48th min Andy O Riordan shot over the Utds keeper Walsh did well to keep Utd level when he saved well in the 51st min. Robbie O Sullivan set up Ahearne in the 71st minute but latter shot was saved well by Celtics keeper. With just 5 mimutes remaining and extra time looming. Utds captain Thomas McGrath sent in a great ball into Celtics penalty area and Andy O Riordan reacted first and shot to the net much to the delight of Utds players and supports. Utd held out for the final few minutes and reached the cup semi-final. So well done boys.

Utd : B Walsh, D. Kingston, G. Chambers, A.O Riordan, T. Mc Grath, D. Mulcahy, S. Pratt, R. Sullivan, M. Stewart, E. Forbes, B. Ahearne, 
Reserves used G. Sheehan, D.Tobin.

Brideview Utd Junior and Schoolboy Notes

The O'Rourke Family Youth League

McGrath the hero

Utd's last game in the O'Rourke Family Youth League saw them clinch all three points and go joint top of the League.

Our Junior A team face the winners of Valley Rangers and Lismore in The Barry Cup Semi Final and Utd and Utd's B team played their Quarter Final in Cappoquin on Monday night last. We said it last week could we yet have an all Utd Final

Result: Youth League

Brideview Utd 1 Cappoquin-Railway 0

A weakened visitors team should have seen Utd well on top here but it was not to be and it took a second half goal by Eoin McGrath to secure the points. Utd themselves were short some first team players here but players like Josh Sheehan, Shane Casey and Diarmuid Costello  all played their part in the victory as did Joas Almeida when introduced in the second half.

Utd must now wait for Cappoquin-Railway final game to Valley Rangers to see what happens. A win for Cappoquin-Railway will be enough to get them into a playoff with Utd.

Utd: E.Costello, W.Cunningham, J. Scotton, D.Beecher, D.Costello, K.Crawford, E.McGrath, J.Chambers, J.Sheehan, P.Hynes, S.Casey.

Man of the Match

Eolan Costello who brought off some terrific saves during the game.

Cois Bhride  1 - 16       St. Patricks  3 - 16
Last Saturday we traveled to Fraher Field to take on St Patricks in the Minor Hurling Division 2 final replay . Another cold windy evening played under lights both teams gave us another exciting game .  Playing with the breeze in the first half our lads had the upper hand but were unlucky to concede 2 goals and only led by 2 points at half time 0 - 9 to 2 - 1 . 

    Again playing against the wind in the second half we knew we would have to work hard . And yet again this team responded to that challenge . We conceded a goal and 4 points to our 1 point which left us trailing by 4 points heading into the last quarter . But with another mighty effort our lads leveled the match in the 63rd minute with a goal from Mark Dalton to leave the score  1 - 13 to 3 - 7  and send the game into extra time .

    Unfortunately for our players the effort exerted in that last quarter took its toll on a lot of our lads and St Pats finished the game the stronger and we finally succumbed to a better team . 

    Our boys can feel very proud of themselves for a fantastic season in this grade . They started football in March reaching the semi final and beating the eventual county champions in the league section . And the hurling with those fantastic wins over the two best eastern teams in the quarter and semi and two big days in the final and replay . When you consider the age profile of this team and to think we were picking from a panel of 18 players they definitely punched above weight .

 Team ;  Cathal Hunt , Eoghan Lenehan , Dean Beecher (0-1) , William Cunningham , Liam Motherway (0-2) , Shaun Henley , Ivan O Neill (Capt) , Tom Dalton(0-1) , Eoin McGrath(0-1) , Ben Aherne , Kieran Crawford(0-1) ,Ciaran McCarthy , Padraig Hynes , Mark Stewart(0-1) , Mark Dalton(1-9) , Jake Chambers , Cian Hurley , Michael Condon .

     And finally I would like to thank my fellow selectors Declan and Liam , coaches Tim Lenehan , Shane Roche and Shaun O Sullivan , Physio Thomas Goulding , the waterboys , jersey washers , parents who drove to the matches , Cois Bhride juvenile committee , sponsor  Mike O Neill , all our supporters and Mick and staff at Kearneys Restaurant for feeding the team after the two finals . Also a mention for Denis Tobin for having the field ready and available for matches and training .

Scoil Mhuire

Well done to the boys and girls of Scoil Mhuire, Tallow, who won their county football finals on Thursday last. 

Cois Bhride    0 - 11    St Patricks   1 - 8

Our minors played out a draw in the county final played in Fraher Field last Saturday . A very strong wind blowing in from the river made for difficult conditions for hurling . Playing with the wind in the first half scores were hard to come by but our lads stuck to the task and with 25 minutes played we led 8 points to 2 with all our scores coming from play . But three minutes later we conceded that all important goal and in the same play we lost our center back Sean Henley through injury . We led at the half time 8 points to 1 - 3.

    We now had a big mountain to climb leading by only 2 and playing against the wind . But this team all year has shown fantastic character and they did it again in this second half . We scored the first two points to stretch the lead to 4 . This may not have been a classic game of hurling but boy was it exciting . Our backs now played to their limit and St Pats were relying on frees to keep them in the game and had us back to a point with 40 minutes on the clock . We were 2 up with two mins to go but two late points for Pats had the final score level and the two teams will have to do it all again .

     Our lads can be very proud of this performance and hopefully up their game again in the replay . We led all the way in this match and only conceded 1 point from play in the second half against the wind so a lot of positives to give us the confidence to go and win this replay .Best of luck to all involved . 

  Team ; Cathal Hunt ; Eoghan Lenehan ; Dean Beecher ; William Cunningham ; Ivan O Neill (capt) ; Sean Henley ; Liam Motherway : Tom Dalton ; Eoin McGrath 0-1 ; Kieran Crawford ; Ciaran McCarthy ; Ben Aherne 0-1 ; Padraig Hynes 0-2 ; Mark Stuart 0-2 ; Mark Dalton 0-5 ; Jake Chambers ; Cian Hurley : Michael Condon .

Tallow Tidy Towns

Tallow Tidy Towns 

The tireless work undertaken by the Tidy Towns Committee has again paid dividends this year.  The adjudicators were impressed with the work undertaken to date on the Alms houses and many businesses and premises were commended for their continuing work to enhance their buildings.  The planting of containers both in the square and in the various green areas around the town drew praise from the adjudicators who said they are looking forward to seeing the further planned development of these areas next year.

A special word of thanks to all who volunteered to litter pick over the summer months. The absence of litter was noted and drew praise from the judges. 

The residents of the various housing estates were commended for their work keeping their own areas clean and tidy, and for adding to the overall look of the area with colourful displays in baskets and window boxes.

While the Tidy Towns were delighted with the comments, there are still many ways in which Tallow can increase its scores in the Tidy Towns Competition.  Volunteers are always welcome as there are many projects which need constant attention.  There is always room for improvement and the Tidy Towns committee urge each and every resident in the town, and especially those living on the main thoroughfare, to  pay attention to the areas adjacent to their premises, pick up litter, weeds etc.  And together we can make Tallow a town to be proud of and to welcome visitors too in 2019.

A hurlers perspective on the modern game by David O Brien (Fada)
I watched the All Ireland hurling final a few weeks back and noticed two announcements by the commentator Marty Morrissey. On two occasions in the game Dara O'Donovan and Cian Lynch both pulled on the ball and  Marty declared on both occasions " It's great to see , why don't we see it more often?". So is ground hurling an obsolete skill in modern hurling?
In the current era of congested midfields, where space is at a premium and bringing the ball into contact is the norm, why aren’t more teams moving the ball quicker with the ground stroke? “Rucks” is a new  hurling term because they are so common and as a spectacle they are hideous to watch. Ground hurling could solve all this especially in the middle third area. A fast ground ball into the forwards would cut out all these defenders. Percentage play is a modern term for possession. Teams are afraid to hit a 50/50 ball for fear of losing it and affecting their stats.
The GAA's National Hurling Development manager Martin Fogarty said it's a worrying trend when you see a guy over six foot with a 33' or 34' hurley. They can't reach the ground and miss countless hooks and blocks because their hurley is too small for them. Nowadays a lot of teams have people who can hit sideline cuts as easily as a free. We have Jordan Henley , Mark O'Brien and Tommy Ryan who can launch sidelines on fifty yard trajorities. One of these has a smaller hurley that Martin Fogarty speaks of. The sideline is often the only ground stroke seen in a match so has it’s importance grown through the demise of the “pull”.
Our own Paul O'Brien scored a double on the ground pull goal against Tipperary in 2004 and we all basked in the glory that it was a  skill engrained in him by Ned Power. Evan Sheehan also scored a great ground stroke against Ballyduff in Lismore a few years back on the stroke of half time which ultimately proved the decisive score in a Senior Hurling championship match. Gone however are the days in training of a man in the middle doubling on the ball. Too many sliotars lost I’d imagine. Along with the sweet satisfaction a player gets when he connects just right and watches the ball fly over his teammates head into the ditch surrounding the pitch.
The other exponent missing is the pull on the ball in the air. It was everywhere before with half forwards pulling and either connecting on the ball or leaving it through. You'd rarely see it nowadays .The last time I saw it executed was when Shane Walsh pulled on the great ball against Cork in a Munster League game in Ballyduff back in 2011. As a far more difficult skill to master it is as good as any when executed correctly. Henry Shefflin connected with a ball against Cork in the All Ireland of 2004, Donal Og made a great save on it. It was Shefflin's connection that was so impressive and a skill set that had him in such high regard with his peers at the time. Tommy Guilfoyle scored two great goals against Tipperary in the Munster Championship of 1994 courtesy of the same skill.
Hurling has many facets and skills, and it's up to coaches or individuals to teach the game the way they like it to be played. The question to ponder though is whether these are skills that no longer have a place in the modern game or skills that are no longer coached? 

New Arrival 
Huge congrats to Aidan and Marie Kearney on the birth of a bouncing baby boy.

Waterford Senior Hurling
We wish to congratulate James Murray on his recent appointment as Waterford senior hurling selector. We wish him all the best in his new role. We look forward with anticipation to the year ahead.

G.A.A Notes

Treasurer: The sad passing of Maireád Sheehan and her lifetime of service to Tallow GAA has left a huge vacuum.  Nowadays (pre Covid) all you heare are stories of people being very busy and unable to give up theri time.  The club has been without a treasurer since Maireád's passing and it was vital we filled that role quickly.  We are delighted to say that Kieran Geary has stepped into the breach.  Coming from an academic business background Kieran has an astute grasp of figures and gives full committment to anything he does.  So we are delighted to have him onboard. 

Tús Scheme: Brendan O'Dowd's term is up in August.  Brendan did trojan work in the field and went out of his way to keep the fields immaculate.  It would be great if the scheme could be updated and the terms extended to enable people to stay on and do the job they enjoy.

Membership: Everyone who has paid their membership before the 1st of August will be entered into a membership draw, prizes to be confirmed.  Those who have paid prior to Covid 19 will be contacted

Membership as follows:

Player €50

Player + Partner €55

Non Player €30

Non Player + Partner €35

membership can be handed to Billie-Jean Sheehan

 

Munster Championship: Cork awaits in the Munster semi final.  What kind of a crowd will be allowed to go and will go is anyone's guess!

Notes from Tallow

Fixtures : With fields opening earlier than expected and championship been given the green light in club format to start from the middle of July, the county board in their wisdom have given clubs some breathing space and put the fixtures forward alleviating the pressure that the original format had on clubs. We start our campaign against Ballygunner on Friday 24th July at 7.30pm in Fraher Field. The following week we lock horns with Passage in Fraher Field on Sunday 2nd August at 7pm.

 

Club LottoUnfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to recommence the club lotto as originally planned on Monday last June 29th. We hope to get this resolved as quickly as possible and will update as soon as we have a restart date. All tickets bought for the last scheduled draw will be included in the next draw.

 

Congratulations: to Stuart and Aileen Barry on the birth of their son Gavin at the weekend.

 

Comhbhrón: CLG Tulach an Iarainn extend its sympathy to the Henley and Geary families on the passing to her external reward this past week of Bridget. Peter and Bridget have been living in Aghada in East Cork for many years with their family but have always had a close contact with their former homes here in Ballinaha and Tallow. May her gentle soul rest in peace. We extend our sympathy also to the families of the late Dermot Bolger (Conna and Ballyduff) whose tragic accident has shocked the entire area. Our sympathy also to Denis Geary Ballyduff and formerly of Janeville Tallow. All very popular and well-liked people in their communities.   Bealtaine an tiarna deontas luach saothair síoraí dóibh.

He ran, he rattled, he pulled, he tackled, he's the meadowfresh man.

America trekking, a session a becking, Kilruane ah feckin!!, he's the meadowfresh man.

The aggro's a batting, Portlaw selector could get a flaking, he's the meadowfresh man.

Natural colour hair fossil, we know it's the bottle, he's the meadowfresh man. 

PRO: Erin's Own in the county final. A much altered Tallow team from the ‘85 final team... 

 J.G.: Yes after relegation in 86 we reached the 87  Intermediate co Final against Erins Own in Walsh Park. Erins Own had Damien Byrne and Chuck O Connor both top intercounty men at the time. We struggled to get the win but did in the end. It was a very different team from the 1984/85 team with a few players retiring and a number leaving the club. 

PRO: Upon promotion we played in four consecutive semi finals. We lost each one to the eventual County champions. Regrets? 

J.G.: I think we probably should have won 2 of those and probably should have won another Co title with that team but it wasn’t to be. 

PRO:I remember your later days. The shin guards; the belts! A game in Abbeyside against St Saviors around 96...  You were stretched....

J.G.: Yes unfortunately as we got a bit slower Fada we were getting a bit more prone to picking up injuries so I had a good few in those years. I decided it was time to call it a day soon after that, I still played a bit of Junior when they needed a few bodies. 

PRO: How competitive was the Tallow team when you retired? 

 J.G.: We were reasonably competitive, probably mid –table but  had fought relegation for a few years to remain in the senior ranks.  

PRO: Did you play much football for the club? 

J.G.: Yes played a lot of football at under age and we won a lot of football titles in those years. We never really concentrated on Football in Tallow It usually provided a break from the hurling but would have had some good players down the years but I think we were a forgotten outpost when it came to selection on inter county underage teams. 

PRO:You have had a go at management. How has it altered from your earliest times to your most recent? 

J.G.: When I finished hurling in the min  90s I got involved with the management end of it with the seniors and was involved for 2 other stints the last being 2016/ 18. I found it completely different this last time ( probably my age ) I'm not sure is it as enjoyable anymore from players and management point of view and there is now huge commitment involved with a much higher fitness level. Unfortunately the fixtures structure is chaotic – starting training in Jan for possibly one Championship match at the end of March, early April and not playing Championship again till July /Aug. Players train to play matches and the enjoyment of that, not wait in the wings for Inter-county fixtures to finish. I think it is something the GAA need to address or players will find sports with  more structured outings. It is also putting huge financial burdens on Clubs paying trainers etc for this extended period. 

PRO:You had a fairly hairy encounter on the line against Portlaw in 01 in a relegation game. What happened?

J.G.: Ya, lets just say there was a bit of a misunderstanding on the line with a few Portlaw men when things were getting heated both on and off the field. I think we met up a few years later and had a few pints and a good laugh about it. 

PRO: What are you future hopes for Tallow GAA in the coming years both on and off the field? 

J.G.: Tallow was always recognised as a good hurling parish and always has decent hurlers. I hope we can put the structures in place to get the best out of what we have and compete at the best level we are capable of. We are short on numbers but if we can get a few quality players coming through every year  ultimately you would love to see another senior hurling championship come to Tallow. We are amalgamated with Shamrocks at under age as Cois Bhride who are currently doing a lot of work at underage and there is tremendous work also being done by Neil Moore, Tommy Ryan and Tieran Murray at schools level so hopefully the future will be bright. 

PRO: Finally who was the best player you played with and against?

J.G.: While John McDonnell and Tom McSweeney were very “Sweet hurlers” I think Liam O'Brien was the pick of the bunch I played with him when he eventually got going (which could take a belt from the opposition or one of ourselves.)  Pat Ryan of Mount  Sion or Eamon O Shea of Kilruane McDonaghs /Tipp were probably the best I played against. 

  PRO; Your best Tallow 15 that you played with ?   

J.G.:                            

                                                        Martin Murphy

Mairead Sheehan: Sadness struck Tallow GAA circles on Monday night last when we discovered the ultimely death of our treasurer Máiréad Sheehan. The one word that I would associate with Máiréad is longevity. She acted as treasurer of the club from the mid nineties on. When the financial side of club became more like a business Máiréads vigilance and astute bookkeeping always had our accounts in order. Her loyalty to Tallow could never be questioned and even in ill health she continued to act as one of the front bench of the club. She was part of the lotto committee and was a Monday night regular for years. Her GAA heritage was always ingrained in her blood and she carried her fathers All Ireland hurling medal as a brooch a symbol of great pride to her. To the Sheehan family we wish to extend our sympathy on the passing of Máiréad . Beannacht Dé lena anam uasal.

Here is the eulogy from her funeral mass as read by Jimmy O'Gorman.

A dark cloud descended over Tallow and the surrounding area on Tuesday morning last when the news broke that one of it's most highly respected residents Mairead Sheehan had unexpectantly passed to her eternal reward. We all know that we are saying our final goodbye to a devoted family person, a great friend and neighbour and an outstanding servant to the community.

Mairead was born in Convent Street in 1947 into a family of eight to Billy & Eily Sheehan, her brothers Sean, David, Billy, Noel, Pat and Tim and her younger sister Bernadette. Unfortunately the passing of her eldest brother Sean, younger sister Bernadette and dear friend and sister in law Nell affected her deeply. She always spoke of them with fond memories, no doubt they are now once again reunited.

Throughout her lifetime, Mairead remained what she always was, a Tallow person through and through, a woman so very proud of where she came from, a woman who in a whole variety of ways, did everything she could do to further and promote her home place. Never was that more manifested than through her involvement with the GAA club, which stretches over a number of decades and which has now only ended through that final call from the man above.

Almost from her infant years, the spark of genius that would subsequently manifest itself in both work and sport was there for all to see.

On finishing her education at national and secondary level, Mairead took up employment in Dublin, firstly working in Arnotts before joining the civil service. Of the many projects she was involved in, in this sphere, Glenveigh National Park in Donegal was her pride and joy and also the developments of Kilkenny and Cahir Castles and their surrounds to name but two.

During those years in Dublin, Mairead was a proud member of the Waterford Association and was the first secretary of that branch. Many locals who ventured to Dublin during that period for matches in Croke Park, when money was not as flahul as today, were glad to have a roof over their heads in Mairead's flat for the night before and after the games. It wasn't unusual to have 20 people sleeping on the floor as first back from the pub got the couches but were damn glad of the cover for the night!!

Her nephew Conor is presently secretary of the Waterford Association in Dublin and so continues the family link.

Whilst in Dublin, Mairead was also a playing member of Terenure Tennis Club and on the social side of things, the table tennis club. Her other hobbies included Camoige, which she played in her younger days and Mairead also loved swimming and quizzes. There was hardly a weekend went by during the working year when Mairead would return home on a Friday evening to return to Dublin late Sunday evening, the car invariably full with locals returning to the capital when transport was at a minimum.

It's almost 30 years ago as Mairead's mam got on in years, she decided to return home. She transferred from Dublin to the CSO Office in Cork and around that time, took up officer ship in Tallow GAA. Mairead was an outstanding treasurer and would literally mind mice at the crossroads where money was concerned, she was extremely prudent and realised how difficult it was to finance the many activities of the year. We have a Sean Ochal which goes: Ní Bheidh a leitheid an aris, which is certainly true to Mairead as treasurer of Tallow GAA Club.

Being a true community person, Mairead's activities weren't just confined to GAA. She was a tireless worker on behalf of many, a staunch worker with St Vincent de Paul, her work carried out with the greatest privacy and dignity, she loved the community centre and all it entailed, drama and pantomime and never missed the Ballyduff Drama Festival, which is currently running and no doubt Mairead would have been present at all this week's performances. Mairead was also treasurer of the local Credit Union for many years and involved in the local active retired Group and more recently took up the positiono of treasurer in the newly formed Tallow ladies Social Group.

One of Mairead's most treasured possessions was her father's Waterford Junior Hurling All Ireland winning medal of 1934. A special medal was commissioned that year being the 50th anniversary of the founding of the GAA and boy did she wear that medal with pride all her life.

In every parish there is no doubt a person like Mairead Sheehan who contributes to an active and vibrant community, always positive in her approach to the many facets of her busy life.

The people of Tallow will be all the poorer for Mairead's passing but the richer for having known her and worked alongside her in the community.

I conclude this tribute with a heavy heart having known the Sheehan family for over 6 decades and spent many a happy hours company of Mairead's late father Bill and Uncle Pa at several club games analysing the standards and listening to the stories of some of the characters playing our treasured games on the banks in Lismore, Cappoquin and Fraher Field. Stories and memories I will treasure for years to come.

The Sheehan family would like to sincerely thank all those who attended and sympathised with them during recent days especially those who travelled long distances to do so in support of Mairead.

So Mairead, you have prepared your final treasurer's report and you did so. as you always did, in a professional and dignified manner. You leave behind a legacy that all of us would be proud of, a legacy that will stand the test of time. May the rich soil of the town you loved so well rest gently on you. Slan leat ma soar chara agus go niri an bothar leat. Ar dheis de go raibh a anam deilis…...

Tallow GAA wish to sincerely thank Jimmy O Goerman for the lovely words above and for encapsulating in his words the sentiments of everyone from Tallow GAA who worked alongside Máiréad.

Pandemic : The Corona Virus has struck a fear into the country and an air of uncertainty have developed in the landscape .

The GAA are imposing a blanket ban on all GAA activity .This means no games, trainings,meetings , collective gym sessions.until at least March 29th. Tallow GAA will be adhering  with this and no activity will take place from now until the blanket ban is lifted.

An té nach bhfuil láidir, ní foláir dó bheith glic.

We also got this from Alan Milton from the GAA .

A chairde, 

Can you ensure the note below is circulated to all of your County Team Managers and players and passed on to Club Secretaries to be shared with their Club Managers and players too. 

Le meas, 

Feargal 

A chara, 

The GAA's Medical, Scientific and Welfare Committee, the Gaelic Player's Association and the Gaelic Athletic Medical Association (the representative body for Team Doctors) wish to stress the crucial importance of all players and team personnel adhering strictly to HSE guidelines in relation to social distancing and other aspects of the current Covid 19 pandemic. 

In practical terms, this means the following: 

  •  Players should not congregate, even in small numbers, for training sessions. 
  • Indoor shared Gym facilities are to be avoided, as such environments pose considerable limitations on a users ability to adhere to both 'Social Distancing' and contact transmission guidelines advised by the HSE. 

Team managers, backroom personnel and players at all levels have not only a duty of care to each other but also to the wider community around them at this time.

It is expected therefore that County and Club teams across the country will adhere to both the letter and spirit of what has been asked of them at this challenging time. 

Le meas, 

Dick Clerkin (Chairman, GAA Medical Sceintific and Welfare Committee)

Paul Flynn (CEO, Gaelic Player's Association)

Dr Sean Moffatt (Chairman, G.A.M.A)

As pubs in Tallow have decided to close their doors at the weekend Tallow GAA have decided to postpone this weeks lotto. All existing books of tickets will stay with our sellers and we will carry out the draw at the next available date.
We would like to thank you all for your continued support and hope you understand our decision.

I was going to write a piece about fixtures and leadership from the GAA following on from last Thursday's announcement but truth be told it matters little when one looks at the big picture. I hope citizens looks out for each other in the correct medical advised manner and that we as a nation can surmount the big challenge that lies ahead. Be kind, be practical and be safe and we hopefully with the help of God can pull through this. 

Robert Zimmerman wrote

'Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
Come in, she said
I'll give ya shelter from the storm.

Let's hope that the shelter arrives.

Senior Hurling League : We open our campaign against Ballysaggart this Sunday at 11.30am in Ballysaggart.

Where's the Logic? Championship weekend, a weekend of great excitement for both player and supporter but how about this for a predicament ! The county board in their deranged wisdom have decided to play junior hurling and senior hurling championship on the same day. Now look at the logistics of this. Clubs would need two sets of jerseys for the same day. They expect supporters to go to two games in different venues. Now not all clubs have a volume of players, so there is in all likelihood at least some of the junior players being close to starting senior who will have to tog out for two games and could if required be involved in both. Where is player welfare here ?  You also have management of both, hurley and water carriers and medical officers having to attend both and not having full concentration on their sole focus which should be one game. We have a paid secretary in this county and  the broader thinking should be on the club player rather  than the county man. They too added the cost of buying bibs for the sideline now which must be numbered. These were handed out to teams on previous occasions so what has happened to these?

Johnny Geary Interview Part 2:

PRO: The Tallow team of that time was made up of four  prominent underage age groups. Late sixties ,early seventies, mid seventies and your group the early eighties. They gelled together well?

J.G.: Its debatable if they gelled  WELL together but they gelled OK . 4 players came from the 83 u 21 winning side on to the senior the following year , Jim O Donoghue , Philly Curley , Pat Murphy and myself . Philly always told the older lads on the team that we gave them legs and the bit of speed they were lacking ( something they never really agreed with us on ) but we did go on to win 2 seniors in 84 and 85 so I presume what Philly said held a lot of truth. 

PRO:You played on the two in a row team of 84 and 85 . Was it difficult to break on to that team?

J.G.: Yes it was difficult Ok . They had a lot of very good hurlers at that time , all who would have played county at under-age and a number who were on the county senior panel . You had the likes of Liam O'Brien , John McDonnell , the Curley  and  Ryan brothers , Pat Daly , Mick Beecher , Timmy Sheehan all good players so it was wasn’t easy to break on to the team and it was very competitive for places .  

PRO: A lot of Tallow men gained intercounty experience for Waterford at this time, including yourself. What do you remember of that ? 

 J.G.:yes I think all of our senior team at that time would have played intercounty at some level at under age . I remember playing U -21 against Cork in 82 and we had  6 from Tallow on the team including Con Ryan, Mick Beecher , John Fitzgerald , Philly Curley, Pat Murphy and myself .  We would have had Liam O Brien, Eddie Curley , Connie Curley , Mick Beecher , Timmy Sheehan , Pat Daly , Pat Murphy , Kieran Ryan , Philly Curley who all played Co senior at some stage . My Intercounty career was pretty short – the highlight being a defeat by Roscommon in Roscommon in a League game  –I think it made Front Page news on The Roscommon Herald the following week .. 

PRO: The centenary final, the new jerseys and the rain....  Losing to Ballyduff by eight points at half time!  Continue...

J.G.: In the Centenary Final in 84 we played Portlaw and had a new set of Centenary Jerseys for the occasion. . It was played in Fraher Field . The forecast was for heavy showers on the day so when we togged out we went out for our warm up while it was still dry . When we completed the warm up and were back in the comfort of the dressing room, there was a cloud burst and Portlaw had just gone for  pre-game warm-up and they got absolutely drenched .We had 2-3 on the scoreboard in the first 8 minutes . I always thought that heavy rain had a huge bearing on the final result.. The following year we played near neighbours Ballyduff in an All Western final in Fraher Field . Ballyduff totally outplayed us in the first half leading by 8 points at half-time . A few switches at half-time and an early goal in the second half brought us back into the game and we went on  to snatch victory at the end. There was a huge rivalry with Ballyduff in the 80 s where they won 2 county titles and we won 3 in the decade but also huge respect that I think is still there to this day. 

PRO: The team was at the peak of it's powers in 85 I would think. You played Roanmore in a county semi final, Tallow scored 4-16 with 4-14 coming from play. The ultimate performance?

J.G.: Yes that performance was probably the best from that team and there was nothing in it in the end. Roanmore were the emerging force in hurling in Waterford going on to win 2 co titles in the late  80's.  

PRO: The eighties was a bleak period for the country. Mass emigration and unemployment! You and fellow Tallow hurlers spent times in the states..

J.G.: Yes Unfortunately there was very little work in Ireland in the late eighties so it meant a lot of young men and women had to emigrate to find work . Through the connection with Micky Pendergast in New York it was the choice of most Tallow people to head there and The UK . Micky was a great Ambassador for Tallow and Waterford in New York and did a huge amount of work for emigrants in setting them up in accommodation and jobs on arrival . At one stage there were 18 people from Tallow in the one Apartment Block which was christened: “ The Tallow Towers “ . A lot of us played for Waterford in Gaelic Park in those times.  

PRO: Kilruane MacDonaghs in Tallow! Full House!. Munster club championship in our home venue! Lost by a point! They won the All Ireland..... 

J.G.: I think it was one of the highlights of Tallow GAA over the years –playing in front of 3000 people in a Munster Club Championship at our home venue . It was a cracker of a game that could have gone either way , unfortunately we were beaten by a point by the eventual All Ireland Club Champions 

PRO: How much of an affect did that loss have on the 86 season? 

J.G.:  I don’t think it really affected the following year . We were going for 3 in a row and were probably a bit complacement and didn’t prepare properly for the earlier rounds .  There was a new Championship format that year which was now run on a league basis .We lost a few of the earlier rounds and all of a sudden we were in a situation where we couldn’t qualify for the next stage so we were out of the Championship and in a relegation battle which we lost and were relegated to Intermediate .  

PRO:We beat Fourmilewater in the 87 western intermediate final. The cup was named after Raymond O'Brien... 

J.G.:Yes Raymond O Brien was an a great hurler who unfortunately died tragically at the age of 22 . He had just began to establish a place on the Waterford Senior team and had huge potential . It was great and fitting to win his Memorial Cup in 87.

Bon Voyage to two our players this week in which Kieran Fraser and Martin Murphy who have both emigrated to Australia . Both have spent countless hours in the gym over the last few months in what we thought was preparation for this years championship but it turns out to be getting the perfect beach body for Oz. We hope they have a safe and peaceful time on their travels and return to these shores soon.  

The Rules: There is plenty of debate recently in the subject of officiating in hurling. Referees are getting a lot of flack over over fussy decisions. I actually don't blame them, I'd blame the referee's assessors. They seem hellbent on stopping free flowing hurling and pulling up every technicality. Little taps from a hurley shouldn't mean a free and if they are going to maintain that and on referees who blow on swinging hurleys that are going for the ball they will make it a non physical sport. 

Waterford had a fine win at the weekend. If they qualify for the later stages of the league they is a fair chance that one of our championship game could be changed but why not put it on the following week. The county management team will have an extra week if Waterford progress so if they have that give the club teams a week that they weren't getting. A notice on such an event could be put into action as we speak.

Trip North : Going back to 1996 when a contingent of U16 hurlers lead by Seánie Sheehan, Colin Cunningham, Finn McCarthy, Tom Doyle, Rachael Ryan and Johnny Geary travelled to the Ulster province and to the Tyrone club Naomh Colum Cille, Tallow has always had a good relationship with the Tyrone hurling club. We were last there in 2006 for the official opening of their field by then president Nickey Brennnan. The same occasion was sandwiched between our senior relegation game and replay against Ballyduff Lower. So Liam Mulcahy the President of Naomh Colum Cille (surely a lifer in East Tyrone) is looking at getting a collection of junior hurlers to travel to the North . The approx cost will depend of numbers but it will be between €150 and €200. Price will include bus, accommodation, and a meal on arrival.  We are looking for a €50 deposit by the weekend. Contact Liam or Terence if interested.

This week I asked William Murphy about some of his favourite Tallow games that he remembers. William I remember started his career in the full forward line and took the frees. A stylish markman off his right his left was used in emergencies only. He moved out the field as he got older to play to play centre field and as a roving wing forward. In his only adult title for Tallow he won a Junior Football county title in 2010 as a wing back who's jaunting runs were his trademark. Here's his account.

At the risk of sounding like an ex Inter County bainisteoir, Charles Dickens started A Tale of Two Cities with “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”, this is what came to mind when I was asked to write about a couple of my favourite games. I find myself fortunate enough to witness the best of times with Tallow GAA but unfortunately for myself I played through some of the worst of times.

“What’s the best game you ever saw” is a question which inevitably always comes up on a night out with the boys. Most will shoot back with the obvious answers of Waterford versus Cork in the 04 Munster final or when the drought had ended in 2002 against Tipp. Mine is slightly different, the best game I ever saw was the Munster Club Championship game between Tallow and Tipps’ Kilruane MacDonaghs in 1985. A strange game to pick seeing that Tallow would end up losing an epic battle by 1 point. The Guardian reported: “It was a quality game throughout, but the tension and excitement heightened to almost unbearable levels in the last eighteen minutes when both sides raised their game to a spectacular level of skill and determination that is not often witnessed”. It probably gets the nod for several reasons, 1) The game was on in Tallow which was huge and the excitement leading up to the game and on the day was electric, 2) I grew up watching great Tallow teams in the 80s absolutely dominate the County scene. Tallow were to Waterford hurling what Liverpool were to English football, luckily for me I supported both, a great time to be alive!!!! 3)These were different times for instance The Sunday game was still only showing All Ireland finals and maybe semi-finals  live every year unlike today where there is probably an over saturation of games being shown live on TV which meant that people got their fix of hurling by flocking to club games and on that day in Tallow the crowd was massive. Looking back, I think that was the pinnacle for the Tallow teams in the 80s and a case of what might have been, Kilruane would go on to be crowned All Ireland champions in 1986, Tallow would be relegated from Senior the same year, “A Tale of Two Cities” indeed. As a side note Kiruane were managed by Len Gaynor and well renowned and much heralded Tipperary hurling coach Eamonn O’Shea was part of the team that day.

Road Bowling

John Shorten won the Sean Hegarty Shield at Tallow on Sunday after a sensational bowling contest against Mick Hurley of Aghern.

The competition was sponsored by Liam Barry of BH Tree Services and commemorates the late Sean Hegarty one of Tallow’s top bowlers. Shorten now progresses to the Séamus Murphy Cup at Knockanore on Sunday 23. The winner of that will qualify for the John Cronin Cup at Churchtown South on St. Patrick’s Day.

Both players bowled to their limits. There was never more than 25m metres between them from start to finish. Hurley looked to be gaining the upper hand coming to the line, but Shorten produced a big last shot to win it by centimetres.

Shorten opened the contest with a big bowl, which Hurley missed by 15m. Hurley followed with a fine throw to Roseville, which Shorten also beat by 15m. Hurley was at the ashes in three and Shorten beat that by 30m. Hurley gained his first lead with a brilliant fourth bowl to the cottages. His next bowl got a rub to the oak to keep him in a 15m lead.

Shorten regained the lead with a great sixth bowl to The Ranch. Hurley’s next bowl unluckily broke right and Shorten beat it by 35m. They were dead level after eight each to Parkdotia cross. Shorten edged the shots away from the cross. Hurley’s next broke right, but Shorten beat it by just 15m. Hurley played his 12th perfectly, but it broke right and Shorten increased his lead to 25m. Shorten increased his odds with his next to the castle.

Hurley then played a brilliant 14th bowl, which Shorten missed by 20m. Shorten got a nice rub with his second last towards the line, but Hurley still beat it by 20m for the last shot. Shorten played a super last bowl past the line. Hurley followed with a good one too, but it missed the mark by less than a foot.

In the return score at Tallow, Willie Quirke from Clashmore beat Tom Allen from Fermoy by 50m. This was a classic contest too from start to finish. It was a sensational result for Quirke in his comeback score as he had not been bowling for the past two seasons.

 Next Saturday the show moves to the Gearagh Road at Ballinacurra near Midleton for the Donal Wall Shield featuring Donnacha O’Brien and Trevor O’Meara. Both bowlers have won national and international recognition at underage and adult level. O’Meara was a protégé of the great Mick Barry and O’Brien hails from Drinagh in West Cork, often seen as the home of road bowling.

We need to invest more in youth to safeguard our future and strive to provide coaching to them. His two highlights for the year were the World Games where we hosted the Germany team and the trip to Prague. The World Games were driven by our own Pat Daly in Croke Park and it was wonderful to see a big crowd, mainly families, down in the field on a week night.

The trip to Prague was an outstanding success and thoroughly enjoyed by all who went. Connections were made and bonds were formed . We have a strong history of club trips and this definitely offers something to the nonplaying member which should be kept up. A big thank you must go to our Kieran Geary who was the driving force behind the trip and responsible for the bulk of the organising.

Tallow GAA would like to congratulate our club President Eddie Cunningham on being awarded the Séamus O'Brien aard in this year's Local Bar Waterford GAA awards.   Pat Grant spoke eloquently of Eddie's involvement in the association on WLF FM.  He stated how he selector of secretary of Tallow GAA club at the age of sixteen and has held nearly all positions of his club.  He was selector of secretary of both hurling and football at minor grade for Waterfod in 1967.  He was selector of both hurling and football at minor grade for Waterford in 1968.  His greatest achievement on the ocunty stage was in 1992 as minor hurlilng selector as Waterford won Munster but lost out narrowly to Galway in the 1992 All Ireland Minor Hurling final.  On the administration side he served as Western board chairman and treasurer for several years.  he worked on committees for both Croke Park and the Munster Council as well as being a referee assessor.  For Tallow he was involved in nearly all aspects of teams from the sixties onwards.  A selector in our 1974 intermediate triumph, he was there in our senior glories of the eighties and a minor selector in 1997.  His last team involvement was part of the management team of 2011 that guided Tallow to a county final appearance.  Cunny has given a lifetime of service to our club and we would like to acknowledge his outstanding work and no man deserves this award more.

CLG Tulach an Iarainn 03/12/2019

Stepping up to adult grade can be a daunting experience.  This week I spoke to Ian Beecher about his step up to playing adult hurling from underage.


PRO: Before one could play adult hurling at any age deemed one was good enough. It changed then to 17 and follwed that to 18. Had you played junior grade before you played senior grade?

IB: Never played Junior no.

PRO: I remember that you played in two County finals against Ballygunner. You scored a goal against Ballygunner in the U14 one and the Minor one went to a replay. Your memories of both?

IB: Don't remember U14 one. Got 2 goals in the first Minor county, were up by 8 with ten minutes left and drew, lost replay.

PRO: So you played Senior before you played Junior, how did you feel with the age restrictions in so far as you were eighteen before you could play adult hurling?

IB: Didn't bother me really I was playing with few underage teams so was busy with that.

PRO: The first few challenge games and league games how did you find the speed of the game, strength of opponents etc.

IB: Played at a higher speed. Opponents were generally much older and were much stronger.

PRO: How did you find the speed of the game in your first championship encounter?

IB: The speed of the game was faster than underage hurling but it was the strength of players that really surprised me. It was much harder to beat opponents, was nearly bullied out of it. Also was taken off at half time on debut which shows it didn't go well.

PRO: You came up against the Ballygunner halfback line of Mahoney, Hutchinson and Walsh. Pretty strong. How did you feel on the build up to the game and the day of the game?

IB: Build up to the game went fairly well I thought. Obviously was a bit nervous due to playing such a big side and especially because it was first championship game for the club.

PRO: How much of a help were your brother Robbie with about two years experience and James your uncle in stepping up?

IB: The two lads were a huge help to be fair. I suppose James was always giving advice before and after games and wishing the best beforehand which helped alot. Rob made me more comfortable I suppose in the dressing room with lads I hadn't played with before  which was good, and he also told me who to stay away from at training.

PRO: How was your confidence after the game?

IB: Confidence wasn't great to be honest after. We were beaten badly and had a bad game personally too.

PRO: How did the rest of the year go for you?

IB: Rest of the year went well I thought for my first year. Got to play a nice few matches which boosted my confidence and I got experience under the belt.

Valley Rangers 5 Brideview Utd 0

This local derby ended with a home win, Utd had been finding the net regularly in their last few games and for them not to score during the game was a bit of a surprise. Having said that Rangers keeper was outstanding here and brought off some great saves from Whelan, Guildea and McCormack. No doubt the boys will put this defeat behind them and move on.

Junior Football:

Tallow 4-08 Kilgobnet 4-13
Never has a game been influenced so much by two players. Donnchadh Mulcahy plyed his trade at corner forward garnered himself a total of 3-3 all from play while his counter part on the Kilgobnet side at full forward scored around 80% of their total. It was a lively opening ten minutes with scores a plenty. Our first score was registered on the scoreboard when Ryan Grey pointed a free inside two minutes.  Donnchadh "the Tyrone Samuri" scored our first point from play two minutes after, followed it on a minute later when he cut in from the right hand side and slotted over for a beauty. Quick thinking from Ryan resulted in our first goal of the game when he blasted home a close in free. 
The speed of it confused some as on the Cappoquin scoreboard it was recorded as a point. Jordan scored a wonder point and a long rang bomb from kevin henley on ten minutes had us leading 1-4 to 0-
Five minutes after this Kilgobned had a goal and point scored. The ever industrialist Donnchadh had the misfortune to see a thunder bold come back off the butt of the post as he left players in his wake. It was tit for tat now and a Ryan Grey shot dorpped short inot the hands of Donnchadh and he billowed the net.  Kilgobnet's reply was instantaneous as they socred a goal straight away to leave the tie deadlcked at 2-5 each. Kieran Geary scored a point but again Kilgobnet breached our defence to add another goal and lead at half time 3-6 to 2-6.

We started the second half slowly and before Kieran Geary added his second point from play we trailed by six points with forty minutes played. Donnchadh hoodwinked his man and put over a point reminiscent of Joe Brolly with the high trajectory of his kick. There was a lull in the game for a period as their was no score for about eight minutes. Donnchadh again scored his second goal of the game and he maneuvered around a Kilgobnet defender to slot home. Donnchadh finished off his masterclass with his last goal following a delivery after a piercing run by Jake Beecher. It was a five point loss and we now play a quarter final of the west

Senior Hurling Championship: 

Tallow   1-17       Ballygunner 2- 19

This was a decent performance from our lads. They worked hard, played some quality hurling and were perhaps unlucky not to get something out of the game.  These lads can be proud of their efforts but they need to double up on it. . No big secret about Kilkenny. It’s assumed you can hurl. After that Cody picks the lads who will fight in the trenches.

We had lapses at the start of both halves which cost us dearly.  Ballygunner shot into a 5 point lead in the opening 7 minutes and coincidentally that was their winning margin at end of play. After a jittery start, our full back line got the grips with things and performed well as a unit. Jake Beecher in particular was both competent and confident on the ball. After that opening salvo by Ballygunner there was little between the sides! Indeed for most of the second half Tallow looked the better hurling side. I didn’t take any notes at the game so in a manner of speaking much of this report is ad lib. Great to see Paul O Brien back hurling and hurling well!  (Fada is not writing these notes by the way) Darrah Buckley is a much improved player and he has more to offer.

That said it’s what’s on the scoreboard that counts and Ballygunner are safely into the quarter finals and remain firm favourites to regain the county title.

Tallow: Shaun O Sullivan, Jake Beecher, David O'Brien, Mark O Brien, K Geary, Jordan Henley,  Rob Beecher, Robbie Geary, Ian Beecher(0-2) ,  Thomas Ryan (1-4)  Ryan Grey

(0-1) Bob McCarthy (O-1), Paul O Brien (0-1), Ken Kearney, Darrah Buckley (0-7,4f) Subs  Tommy Daly (0-1), Rob O Sullivan, Mikey Tobin

We face Passage next, probably on the week end 24/25 August. There’s not a poc of a ball between most of the senior teams in the county. It won’t be easy. Trench warfare!!

Overall this was a competitive sporting championship encounter and Ballygunner were worthy winners. There were a few aspects of the game which troubled me however. This is no sour grapes as I would have said the same had we won by 10 points. Cards were dispensed liberally, most of them with a Tallow address. Tallow mentors were admonished (one sent to the stand) apparently for pitch encroachment while I counted no less than 6 of the opposition management/backroom team on the field on one occasion. As the saying goes all we ask for is parity of esteem. Above all Tallow do not ask for but demand respect for our players. A number of our players were at the receiving end of personal insults and abusive foul language from the referee. I’m well aware of what I’m saying here and have double checked my facts. Stuff like frees, cards etc. can be subjective. This was outrageous. The GAA to their credit have made an issue out of respect for referees. . It cuts both ways. We have a duty to our players and will raise this issue on whatever forum necessary for as long as it takes.

Brideview Utd Schoolboy Notes

Summer Camp a Great Sucess
The weather held up and we had a record crowd eighty one boys and girls attending over the week which made it difficult for Centra to get everyone fed on Thursday. It was a busy week with two boys celebrating their birthdays during the week. The boys and girls were very well behaved during the week and gave our coaches no problems so well done.

Thanks
Our thanks to the clubs sponsors Tim Keniry and Centra for feeding the kids on Thursday. Tim and staff Sarah and Teresa did a great job which is not easy.

Well Done
To our coaches during the week without them we would have no camp. Keeping the kids happy all the time is no easy job. 

Birthday Greetings
To Lucas Price who celebrated his sixth birthday during the week. The smaller kids all attended his surprise party in the all weather pitch.
Stephen Murphy celebrated his 13th birthday, all his friends sang happy birthday buty he got no cake. Anyway boys birthday wishes to you both. 

Schoolboy AGM
The league's AGM took place last week in Clancys Bar before a full house. The league are looking for a P.R.O. for the coming season as no one could be found on the night.

Young Brideview Boys do well

Our U10 team travelled to Aragliln on Friday evening to take part in a tournament oganised by Kilworth FC. Our boys played six games in Araglin and were pretty tired after the six games. They reached the plate final against Kilworth. 
The scorers on the night were Ryan Whelan (3) Tommy Forbes (2) Rian Noonan (1) and Paul Hegarty (1) 

The Squad who played were:
Dylan Kerrigan, Ryan Whelan, Tommy Forbes, Rian Noonan, Oscar Morrisson, Paul Hegarty, and Brian Murphy. 
Well done boys and parents who travelled on the night. 

Well done:

To Caelin Rooney of Clashmore who played for Bradford against Liverpool on Sunday last.  We hope to have a chat with Caelin when he gets back home.  We always knew this boy had class!!!

Summer camp in full swing:

By the time these notes appear we will be well into our 2019 summer camp.  A big crowd was in attendance with 74 children attending the camp this year. Hope everyone had a fantastic time.

Brideview Utd AFC Schoolboys Notes

Summer Camp begins on Monday.
The annual Summer camp kicks off on Monday next 15th July in Leonard Fraser Park. A large group of boys and girls have already entered. However, do not worry you can still enter this weekend or walk ons on the morning of the camp is also ok, so no panic.

The cost of the camp is €40 per child, €70 for 2 children, so it's really good value. We begin the Camp at 10.00 am so bring in the children anytime from 9.45 especially if they have to be registered.

The Camp runs from Monday till Thursday. Do not forget packed lunch, enough for 2 breaks and plenty of water especially if the weather is good. More on this next week.

A.G.M.
We have no date yet for the A.G.M. due in the main because the season ran so long this season. However, it will be held this month, everyone will be notified.

The O'Rourke Family League (Youths)

Utd are League champions

The curtain finally came down on the local soccer season on Sunday morning last after what has been a long season for all involved in football.

We are glad to have been involved in the final game of the season especially as we won the Youth League. We scored eleven goals on our final Cup and League game which must be a record.

Result: Youth O'Rourke Family League

Brideview Utd 5 Cappoquin-Railway 3

A high scoring game here again. The visitors went in front in the 5th minute but Chambers pulled back an equaliser before Crawford was brought down in the box and McGrath scored 2 after just 7 minutes. McGrath put Utd two goals up when he shot low to the net. Cappoquin-Railway grabbed a second goal in the 32nd minute. Utd led 3-2 with the half time whistle coming up but again the visitors scored to send both teams in at the break level at 3-3.

Our keeper Eolan Costello brought off two good saves early in the second half. Crawford twice tested the visitors keeper but he twice denied Crawford with two great saves.

 A Crawford free in the 61st minute saw the ball end up in the corner of the net giving the Cappoquin/Railway keeper no chance. Mark Stewart rounded off the scoring the in the 82nd minute to put Utd 5-3 in front. The visitors tried hard to pull a goal back but Costello again denied them with two good scores. 

So Utd win the League for the second year running. Well done to all the lads for providing some excellent entertainment over the Cup Final and League playoff.

Manager Happy

Manager Steven "The Bear" Pratt was in better form Sunday morning after the win and felt the boys upped their game from their Cup Final the previous Thursday. A good bunch of lads attend  Pratt and many of these players will be making up our Junior teams in the season ahead.

Utd's squad: E. Costello, W. Cunningham, E.Scotton, D.Costello,B.Aherne (Capt), G.Sheehan,K.Crawford, J.Chambers, C.Hurley, J.Ameida, E.McGrath, M.Stewart,B.Trigg.

DB Sport U12 Cup Final.

United win the Cup

Yes last Thursday evening saw Utd's U 12 squad lift the Cup after a slender win over neighbours Lismore.

We send our congratulations to Vinnie, John, Manus, Dierdre and the gang on reaching the Trophy Final in Limerick. The players did everyone proud during the week winning the Fair Play award for the week and Sean Og Kenneally winning the Player of the Day Award saw the week a huge success for our small League.

DB Sport U12 Cup result.

Lismore 0 Brideview Utd 1

This local derby produced plenty of good football with our boys coming home with the Cup after a tremendous victory.

The only goal of the game was scored by Gearoid Hynes in the opening half. Billy Murphy almost added goal number two when a cracking volley from 30 yards came crashing back off the crossbar and was cleared. Utd led 1-0 at the break.

The second half saw both sides creating chances but Shay Pratt was outstanding in goal. A great win boys so well done. Also Manager Liam Uli Ahern and his assistant Stephen Murphy.

Utd's squad: Shay Pratt, Aidan Murphy (Capt), Jack Henley, Darragh O Brien, Billy Murphy, Paul Henley, Ben Sheehan, David Henley, Alex Good, Joseph McDonnell, Sean Murphy, Isaac Almeida, Dean Cronin, Danny Power, Gearoid Hynes.

New Balance Kennedy Cup

Kick off next Tuesday

Yes how time flies and once again it's that time of the year when six hundred and twenty boys will make their way to the UL in Limerick for what will be a week they will never forget.

A time when scouts from most English and indeed Irish clubs will attend. Looking for the next Robbie Keane or indeed Roy Keane.

For our small League it's all about taking part. We will not win the Kennedy Cup but who knows what might happen in the trophy tournament.In this group one would meet with Leagues at our own level.

 

Finally we ish the Managers, players and supporters the best of luck and remember boys it's not all about winning, it's about taking part.

This result saw the homeside side clinch the League title and United finish runners up in what has been a terrific league especially between these two sides.

The homeside went in leading 1-0 at the break but Utd did not give up. A terrific goal from a free kick by Billy Murphy saw Utd back in the game. They tried hard for a winner which would have seen Utd win but it was not to be and we had to settle for runners up spot.

Brideview Utd 2 Mogeely 1

Our U 12's had a home game on Sunday morning last against East Cork side Mogeely and at a sunny Leonard Fraser Park they secured all three points that put them joint League leaders with Cappoquin-Railway and just a couple of games left. It's all to play for and it's vital for United that we win all remaing games. Sunday morning last saw Joseph McDonnell and Ben Sheehan grab the goals. Sean Murphy set Ben up to score. Overall there was very little between both teams here and our boys just about deserved their victory.

Operation Transformation Walk: The numbers are slowly increasing by the week and with two weeks left feel free to come along. We commence at Pairc Éamonn De Paor Thursday at 7pm.

I stated a few weeks back that I was going to have a question and answer session with the outgoing chairman of the club Liam Mulcahy. Here is part one of the interview.

PRO: You have finished up four years as Tallow chairman, I remember when you first took over you

said you'd stay for one year. How are you feeling after the four years?

L.M.: One year was never a serious option. That’s what was mooted by the men who approached me at the time. Now I’m not that naive and neither were they. I remember John McDonnell saying to me at the time. “You’ll grow into and get to like it” He wasn’t too far out. Maybe I came to the position too late but sin sceal eile. I had some experience having served as chairman of Naomh Columcille in Tyrone and Cois Bhride but this was a whole different ball game. As the late Seamus Brennan once said “this is senior hurling boys”. The position brings a good deal of responsibility (the chairman is the final arbiter) but it is also a great privilege and honour to serve as Chairman of your club. Had I my time over I would have done some things differently. I would have ensured the role and responsibilities of each officer were clearly defined so there would be no confusion as to who should or should not be doing what. The GAA provides guidance in this regard. Every GAA club now has at least 10 different officer positions with new regulations issued weekly. Governance of clubs has changed dramatically. It’s now like running a business with the adherence to regulations and laws which that entails.

PRO: Many challenge face the modern day GAA club what are they biggest obstacles facing clubs now?

LM: I’ve outlined some of the admin difficulties above. It’s like every club would need a solicitor, accountant and social worker on the committee. From a playing perspective the main obstacles haven’t gone away. Continuity and certainty of fixtures was and is the main issue. This is nothing short of a plague on clubs. It has ever been thus! Lads are now skipping off to the US or even Australia during the championship break. This is going to become worse. You remember Fada when I was campaigning on the club notes for reform of fixtures. That’s over 20 years ago!!! They will kill clubs unless this is recognized and then the show is over. Another problem facing rural clubs especially is the lack of numbers. Not a lot can be done about this. In fairness to most clubs they are making every effort to keep young lads involved. Clubs are also reluctantly (understandably) facing up to the reality and amalgamating where necessary.

PRO: With the new Walsh Park in the offering and with the financial cost of such a venture what do you expect to follow?

LM: Disharmony and more club levies! Look this is a source of constant debate among and even embarrassment to Waterford Gaels. Maybe we missed the boat on this one. The ideal solution back in the day (maybe even still) was to build a compact (25,000) seater stadium in Carriganore. I understand there are issues about the GAA not developing lands which are not vested in the Association. Now it looks like a half hearted development to Walsh Park has been sanctioned which may be “ outdated and not fit for purpose before its even finished” Fraher Field has been promoted as another option. Not really sure but the course appears to be set. It’s a mess!! No offence to the wee county but Louth was usually tagged as the worst county ground in Ireland. They have ambitious plans to redevelop apparently. Let’s hope we don’t assume the mantle.

AGM

A well attended meeting chaired by the last time by out going chairman Liam Mulcahy was held in the clubhouse on Friday last. He lamented the loss of our late Patron Father Farrell and our club member and life and soul of any meeting the late Finn McCarthy. The highlight of the playing year was Cois bhride under twenty one football county victory. On an adult level the senior team had  a inconsistent year and the junior hurlers had two very good wins and came unstuck in the Western semi final. Our financial situation was stable and he thanked John O'Sullivan our lotto co-ordinator  and David O'Brien head of Deise draw for their contributions. We are indebted to any promoters for selling any tickets and all those your purchase tickets throughout the year . Clubs cannot function with the generosity of the people. 

It was wonderful to see Tom Doyle in attendance after his hardship of the previous year. 

Terence McSweeney takes over the chair of chairman from Liam Mulcahy after his four year tenure. Liam himself has said 'that the club needs an injection of youth". Such youthful endeavour brings with it new ideas, energy, exuberance and freshness. I would safely say that Ter possesses all these and more . His relentless pursuit of the  principles of what we expect of our club is what I look forward to in the coming years. 

I will do an interview with Liam in the coming weeks discussing his chairmanship and others aspects of his reign over the last four years.. 

The election of officers were as follows.

An abundance of untold and unknown work was done in the vicinity  in the last year. It was great to see that recognized and all those in the numerous fields they  represented on the night . A resounding success, it's a tribute to those that organized the event and all those who took part. 

Operation Transformation Lights Up: The GAA, in partnership with RTÉ’s Operation Transformation, is seeking to bring together communities across the 32 counties to enjoy healthy walks in the safe, bright, environs of their GAA club.

We have been asked if Tallow GAA is participating in the "GAA Lights Up Event" on every Thursday. The club does not have a designated walk way around the pitches but walks can still be organised once the walk starts and end at the clubhouse every Thursday between 7 and 9 for the next six weeks.However to be covered for insurance we need at least two leaders. One to walk at the front and the other at the back of the group. All walkers must record their names before the walk. If anyone is interested contact Terence ASAP and we can get started.

Anti Social Behaviour : It is a sad state of affairs that each night our club grounds are locked up to prevent damage being inflicted on them and to stop underage drinking. To make matters worse a litany of debris of cans and bottles are left in the facility. The gardaí have been contact and it is noted that such conduct will not be tolerated . 

National Draw
Tickets are now available from the club for the National Club Draw. It's country wide. Tickets are €10. All funds raised will be retained by the club and so all ticket purchases would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Kate Ryan to avail of any purchase.

Last Man Standing: Commence's on the 2nd of February again under the guideship of Kieran Geary and Ter McSweeney. All the senior squad should have a booklet so please avail of the opportunity .

To Follow : I have a few plans for interviews on clubmen in the past and present on various matches and events that were of historical value to the club .

Congratulations to Ballygunner on their victory over Na Piarsaigh in the Munster club senior hurling final on Sunday last.

Scoil Mhuire

Well done to the boys and girls of Scoil Mhuire, Tallow, who won their county football finals on Thursday last. 

Cois Bhride    0 - 11    St Patricks   1 - 8

Our minors played out a draw in the county final played in Fraher Field last Saturday . A very strong wind blowing in from the river made for difficult conditions for hurling . Playing with the wind in the first half scores were hard to come by but our lads stuck to the task and with 25 minutes played we led 8 points to 2 with all our scores coming from play . But three minutes later we conceded that all important goal and in the same play we lost our center back Sean Henley through injury . We led at the half time 8 points to 1 - 3.

    We now had a big mountain to climb leading by only 2 and playing against the wind . But this team all year has shown fantastic character and they did it again in this second half . We scored the first two points to stretch the lead to 4 . This may not have been a classic game of hurling but boy was it exciting . Our backs now played to their limit and St Pats were relying on frees to keep them in the game and had us back to a point with 40 minutes on the clock . We were 2 up with two mins to go but two late points for Pats had the final score level and the two teams will have to do it all again .

     Our lads can be very proud of this performance and hopefully up their game again in the replay . We led all the way in this match and only conceded 1 point from play in the second half against the wind so a lot of positives to give us the confidence to go and win this replay .Best of luck to all involved . 

  Team ; Cathal Hunt ; Eoghan Lenehan ; Dean Beecher ; William Cunningham ; Ivan O Neill (capt) ; Sean Henley ; Liam Motherway : Tom Dalton ; Eoin McGrath 0-1 ; Kieran Crawford ; Ciaran McCarthy ; Ben Aherne 0-1 ; Padraig Hynes 0-2 ; Mark Stuart 0-2 ; Mark Dalton 0-5 ; Jake Chambers ; Cian Hurley : Michael Condon .

Minor hurling semi final :Cois Bhride  1 - 16   Clonea   0 - 14

Our minor hurlers traveled to Fraher field last Saturday to take on Clonea in the County B minor hurling semi final. Having played great hurling in the quarter final win there was a bit of pressure on the lads to play to that standard again and they did just that. The platform for this win was built in the first half. Playing against the wind the boys got off to a fast start and only after 5 mins led by  1 - 3 to no score. From here to half time they battled for every ball like their lives depended on it. They played some fantastic hurling here and at half time we led by 1 - 10  to  0 - 9 all our scores coming from play .

We knew Clonea were a very good team and that they would come at us with all guns blazing at the start of the second half. This they did and by the 45th minute they had us pulled back to a single point 1 - 12 to 14 points .But all credit to our players they raised their game again and in the last quarter outscored their opponents 4 points to nil. This was a mighty result for this panel of players and to all involved and they truly deserve to play in a big day that is a county final and I wish them the very best of luck.

Team ; Cathal Hunt , William Cunningham , Eoin Lenehan , Ivan O Neill , Sean Henley . Liam Motherway 0-1 . Eoin McGrath 0-4 . Tom Dalton , Ciaran McCarthy , Kieran Crawford 0-1 , Ben Ahearne , Mark Dalton 1-2 , Mark Stuart 0-5 , Padraig Hynes 0-3 , Jake Chambers , Cian Hurley , Michael Condon .

Cois Bhride   1 - 22      Passage     0 - 19

Last Saturday we travelled the long journey to Passage to take on the local team in the quarter final of the minor hurling championship.Passage having topped their group in the East were going to be formidable opponents. Playing with the wind in the first half we settled early and the first 15 minutes were closely contested and the scores stood at 5 points apiece. Our boys then took control and we led at half time 15 points to 8. It was the next quarter that our lads played some fantastic hurling and we increased our lead to 1 - 19 to 10 points, the goal coming from Ben Aherne in the 44th minute. Passage, to their credit didn't give up and pushed us all the way but we came out deserving winners in the end.

Team: Cathal Hunt, William Cunningham, Dean Beecher, Eoin Lenehan, Ivan O Neill, Sean Henley, Liam Motherway 0-1, Eoin McGrath0-1, Tom Dalton 0-3, Ciaran McCarthy 0-1, Kieran Crawford 0-2, Ben Ahearne 1-0,Padraig Hynes, Mark Stuart 0-3, Mark Dalton 0-11, Ciaran Hunt Jake Chambers.

Cois Bhride    1 - 20      Portlaw/Ballyduff Lower   0 - 11
This was a playoff round to reach the quarter finals. Played in Tallow last Saturday evening in cool conditions and no run on the ground. We started brightly and with only 2 mins on the clock Ben Ahearne had the ball in the Portlaw net with a brilliant strike. But from here to halftime scores were very slow in the making and we led at the break 1 - 5 to 0 - 3. Portlaw scored two early points at the start of the second half but our lads settled and by 45 mins we still had our 5 point lead. In the last quarter the boys pulled away outscoring the opposition 11 points to 4 to run out easy winners.

Team; Cathal Hunt ,William Cunningham ,Dean Beecher ,Eoin Lenehan ,Ivan O Neill ,Sean Henley 0-1 ,Liam Motherway ,Ciaran McCarthy 0-2 ,Tom Dalton ,Ben Ahearne 1-2 ,Mark Stuart 0-1 ,Kieran Crawford 0-1 ,Padraig Hynes 0-3 ,Ciaran Hunt ,Mark Dalton 0-10 ,Cian Hurley ,Jake Chambers.

We now play Passage in Passage next Saturday 29th September at 4pm

The under 21 footballers lost by a point to Tramore in Portlaw. It was a bruising encounter in which we lost our discipline. Ray 'Pigeon' O'Brien was dismissed I'm told in the wrong in the first half but the referee could have sent off anyone. Tallow beat a Tomás Maher lead Erins Own the following week without the suspended 'Pigeon' in a much more disciplined display. Looking at the team picture of the panel that are there and if Ray O'Brien had been included we would  have had  an astonishing nine players who went on the play senior hurling for Waterford.

Round 3    Cois Bhride 0 - 15     St Patricks 1 - 14
Last Wednesday week we travelled to Colligan and got off to a fast start playing some great hurling we led 9 points to 3 after 20 mins . St Pats hit us for a goal just before half time but we still led by 2 points . The second half was a different story and we struggled somewhat and the hurling we had in the first half just wasn't there in the second half and could only manage 5 points .Scorers Mark Dalton 0-6,Mark Stuart 0-3,Padraig Hynes 0-3,Kieran Crawford 0-2,Ben Ahearne 0-1.

Round 4    Cois Bhride  2 - 16      An Ghaeltacht  2 - 18
Sunday morning, September 2nd, we played the last round of the league section and this was a great game against a strong Ring side . Playing with the help of a slight breeze in the first half it took us a bit of time to get into the pace of the game .While Ring scored 7 of their first 8 points from play we needed Mark Dalton to be on fire with his free taking scoring 6 and 8 points in total in the first half. We got a great boost just before the break when Sean Henley crossed mid field and his shot ended up in the Ring net.We led by 4 points 1-11 to 0-10. Ring started the second half well and with the help of a well taken goal were on level terms within 10 mins.The next 10 mins belonged to us and our lads gave it everything .When Mark Stuart goaled it put us 5 points ahead . Unfortunately for us Ring hit us with a goal a min later and finished the stronger scoring 5 points to our 1.

Even though we lost both games there was nothing between the teams and our display on Sunday was very good throughout the 60 mins.

Scorers Mark Dalton 0-11,Mark Stuart 1-2,Padraig Hynes 0-2,Sean Henley 1-0,Eoin McGrath 0-1.

Having won our second round game against St Olivers with a score of 1 - 22 to 1 - 16 and unfortunately having to concede to Brickeys in the first round because  we couldn't field 15 players .We now enter the knockout stages of the competition but our opponents at time of writing are not known but will be an eastern team .

Senior Hurling

Tallow v Abbeyside

Last Saturday was a disappointing end to the senior hurling year when they were comprehensively beaten by Abbeyside in Fraher Field. Abbeyside certainly started the better of the two teams getting four points before Tallow responded.They also had numerous goal chances during this first half and only for the superb goal keeping of Shaun O Sullivan Tallow could have been down a lot more going in at half time. Half time score Tallow 0-4 Abbeyside 2-13. Going in at half time the writing was on the wall and it was pretty evident that there was no coming back from this. The second half was a similar story with Abbeyside running out eventual winners on a scoreline of 2-22 to 0-10.It just wasn't to be and the better team won on the day! We wish to thank the management team for their work and dedication throughout the year and we look forward to 2019.
