Tipperary Water County Under 21 B Championship Final

In a thrilling, action packed County Final, Moycarkey Borris claimed the title ”County Under 21 B Hurling Champions” for the first time since 1999. Supporters who travelled to Templederry on Sunday last we treated to a spectacular game of hurling where two young Under 21 teams, neither of which had been Divisional Champions since the 90’s, searched for the title.

Lorrha-Dorrha opened the scoring with a pointed free from Brian Hogan and another point from Niall McIntyre. Moycarkey Borris had to wait a full five minutes before Anthony McKelvey pointed for them. Lorrha’s Brian Hogan pointed another free before Anthony McKelvey pointed for Moycarkey. Moycarkey Borris’s Jack Fallon equalised the game as it turned into the next quarter. From here Moycarkey pushed on further with three unanswered points from Kevin O’Regan, Anthony McKelvey (free) and Niall Heffernan. Lorrha’s reply came in the form of another pointed free when Rory Darmody was fouled for overcarrying. Unperturbed by this, Moycarkey added another three unanswered points from JJ Darmody, Jack Fallon and Anthony McKelvey before Brian Hogan pointed another free for Lorrha. The final scores of the quarter were from Tom Hayes and Anthony McKelvey, leaving the half time score Moycarkey Borris 0-11 Lorrha-Dorrha 0-5.

Even though there was a six point margin in the game it was clear both teams had an appetite for the Mick Brophy Cup and Ross O’Meara for Lorrha was first to the scoreboard in the second half with a point. A missed free for Moycarkey was recycled when Jack Fallon caught the puck out and pointed it. Moycarkey hit a purple patch with four points being added to the score board and a margin of ten points. In the forty third minute Brian Hogan pointed another free for Lorrha and four minutes later he raised the green flag from a 20 metre free. Six points was once again between the sides before Moycarkey added three unanswered points. However, this was all to change as Niall McIntyre hit two raspers into the back of the net in the fifty seventh and eighth minute. The final score of normal time was Jack Fallon’s point but this was not the all the scoring as Brian Hogan added a point and a goal from frees in injury time to force the game into extra time; Moycarkey Borris 0-20 Lorrha-Dorrha 4-8.

Moycarkey Borris’s Kieran Cummins took the game in hand in the extra time,  winning the ball from the throw-in to score Moycarkey’s first point. Brian Hogan replied with a pointed free and Rhys Shelly, in the same minute, pointed a free for Moycarkey. Two further points for each side were traded again leaving a point between the sides at half time of extra time. The second half however, did separate the sides as tiredness and cramp set into both teams. Moycarkey’s Tom Hayes, Niall Heffernan, Anthony McKelvey and Bill Maher got the four unanswered points required to give the Championship title to Moycarkey. Moycarkey Borris 0-28 Lorrha-Dorrha 4-11.

Tipperary Chairman, Michael Bourke presented the Mick Brophy Cup to joint captains, Niall Heffernan and Chris McCullagh, thanking both teams for a great display of hurling. Neither team left anything on the field and should both be congratulated for a great game.

Tipperary Water County Under 21 B Semi Final Championship
Next weekend Moycarkey Borris will contest Lorrha Dorrha GAA Club in the Tipperary Water County Under 21 B Final following their comprehensive victory over Cahir on Sunday last in Bansha.

The game opened with pointed frees being traded in the first two minutes of the game. Moycarkey Borris built on this when in the fourth minute JJ Darmody scored a point from a Rhys Shelly free. On the tenth minute Moycarkey added a further point from the side line ably taken by Tom Hayes. Brendan Donaghy kept Cahir close before Anthony McKelvey netted the ball for Moycarkey, when the free he hit lobbed over the Nicholas Reidy’s head in the net. As the quarter turned Anthony pointed another free to give Moycarkey a cushion of five points before an eighth minute period when the ball ebbed and flowed from end to end. In the twenty third minute Cahir’s Ryan Murphy pointed another free before Anthony McKelvey raised another green flag. Jack Fallon concluded Moycarkey Borris’s scoring for the first half before another two pointed frees by Ryan Murphy were added to Cahir’s. The half time score Moycarkey Borris 2-5 Cahir 0-5.

With the aid of the slight freezing cold breeze, Moycarkey Borris opened their second half scoring with a pointed free from Anthony McKelvey and a Kevin O’Regan point. In the thirty eighth minute Anthony McKelvey got his hat trick of goals. Ryan Murphy, Cahir replied with a pointed free before Anthony found the net for his fourth goal. Moycarkey had now stretched their margin to thirteen points. With another twenty minutes on the clock, Cahir had it all to do and were forced into giving away a number of frees. Moycarkey’s next four points were from Anthony McKelvey, all frees. JJ Darmody and Conor Cashman traded goals around the fifty fourth minute before Tom Hayes pointed. The final scores of the game were a hat trick of pointed frees for Tom Hayes as Moycarkey-Borris ran out 5-15 to 1-6 winners

Moycarkey Borris Schools Success Continues

Scoil Mochaomhog Naofa, Two-Mile-Borris win County Final

On Friday November 17th, Two Mile Borris NS competed in the Under 13 C Ladies County Football Final against Upperchurch NS. From the start the TMB girls were on top and first half goals by Jane Corcoran and Lucy Callanan and a point by Sarah Corcoran gave them a 2-1 to 0-1 lead at half time.

With some great defensive work in the second half from Ellie Darmody, Molly O'Dwyer, Emily Carroll, Alisha Kearney and Emma Corcoran and our forwards adding six further points from play, four  

 

for Sarah Corcoran and two for Sophie Coughlan, the girls finished deserving winners by 2-7 to 0-2. Well done to all on a great day for the School. A special thank you to Ms. Ann Ryan and Morgan Lanigan who prepared the girls for the matches.

Under 11 C Ladies Football Final - Littleton 4-1 St. Joseph's Tipperary Town 2-2

Littleton and St. Joseph's played out an outstanding game of football in the Roinn C Final at the immaculate Moycarkey-Borris pitch where the outcome of the game hung in the balance right to the end. Both teams displayed a level of skill and sportsmanship that was admired by all in the large attendance.

Littleton settled the faster and dominated the opening exchanges. However, several gilt-edged opportunities of goal scoring were squandered and St. Joseph's survived the early onslaught.  Indeed, it was St. Joseph's who registered the first score, a point from a difficult angle. Scores were hard to come by, as the play swung from end to end, with both defences dominant.  Towards the end of the first half, Littleton finally found their range and put scores on the board. Caitlin Shelly kicked a superb long-range point and this inspired forwards, Gemma Fennessy Gooney and Saoirse Gooney to score two well taken and vital goals. At half time Littleton led 2-1 to 0-1 but this game was far from over. A feature of the first half was the outstanding defensive performances of sisters, Chloe and Sophie Delaney, in the Littleton defence.

Littleton introduced Nicole Lawlor and Ella Lee for the second half. St. Joseph's now began to turn the screw in this titanic battle. Aoife Shelly performed heroics in the Littleton goal but eventually St. Joseph's made the breakthrough when they scored two well taken goals. The game was now in the balance with the team’s level and ten minutes to play. When the need was greatest however Littleton's inspirational joint captains and twin sisters, Ciara and Caitlin Shelly, rose their games to a higher level and swung the game in Littleton's favour. Caitlin set up Ella Lee for a splendid goal and after a powerful solo run Caitlin herself crashed the ball to the roof of St. Joseph's net. This blow proved too much for a gallant St. Joseph's team and they could not bridge the gap despite scoring a late point from a threatening attack. At this stage the busy Aoife Maher and Paige Thackaberry were in the fray for Littleton. When referee Seán Everard blew the final whistle the Littleton team and supporters erupted in joyous celebration as Littleton had won their second under 11 county title in two years.

Chairman of the local Moycarkey-Borris Club, Joe O’Sullivan, presented the Roinn C Shield to joint captains Ciara and Caitlin Shelly as players, mentors and supporters mingled on the pitch. Congratulations to both teams on serving up an enthralling game of football.

Littleton: Aoife Shelly, Chloe Delaney, Sophie Delaney, Ciara Shelly, Caitlin Shelly, Gemma Fennessy Gooney, Saoirse Gooney, Nicole Lawlor, Ella Lee, Aoife Maher, Paige Thackaberry, Sophie Fox O'Brien, Méabh Treacy, Annie Dempsey, Aoife Carey, Abbie Moore.

 

 

Moycarkey NS win County Final by Mia O’Meara

On the 13th of November 2017, Moycarkey NS Under 13 girls set out to play Powerstown NS in a football county final in Cashel hoping to bring home the shield.

At 12 o’clock, the referee blew the whistle. Powerstown got the ball and scored a point. Moycarkey was off to a bad start. But they came back with an amazing point from Caoimhe O’Sullivan. The ball was kicked out by the Powerstown goal keeper. It was excellently defended by Shauna Flanagan and passed to Chloe Shorley who beautifully kicked over the bar. Powerstown tried scoring but nothing could get past Moycarkey’s skilful goalkeeper. The referee blew the half time whistle. Score Moycarkey 2-5 to Powerstown’s two points. Two amazing goals, one from the point scorer Caoimhe O’Sullivan and one from the half forward Lucy Purcell. Moycarkey walked tiredly off the field. Their captain, Mia O’Meara, gave an inspirational speech.

Moycarkey set out for the second half, knowing Powerstown would fight for that shield even harder than the first half. As the referee blew the whistle and threw in the ball, Powerstown caught the ball but was excellently defended by Ellen Maher and passed to Caoimhe O’Sullivan which was passed  
 
again to Chloe Shorley and superbly kicked over the bar. Moycarkey then scored 2-4. Two amazing
goals by Caoimhe O’Sullivan and Chloe Shorley. Powerstown came back with two goals and two points but it wasn’t enough to win. As the final whistle blew, the Moycarkey team ran and celebrated. Moycarkey prepared for the presentation of the shield. Moycarkey's captain, Mia O’Meara, gave her speech and all the team had their photo taken. It was a phenomenal win for Moycarkey.
 
Under 13 Roinn E Ladies Football Final - Tankerstown 8-5 Littleton NS 5-3

Tankerstown and Littleton contested this Roinn E final at rain sodden Leahy Park, Cashel in November. Despite the heavy underfoot conditions, both teams served up a lively and tremendously entertaining final.

Tankerstown were first to settle and dominated the early passages of play. However, some wayward shooting from their skilful forwards left Littleton off the hook and the determined Littleton girls came more into the play. Scores were hard to come by as both defences dominated. Aoife Shelly was inspirational in goals for Littleton and Aimee Slattery and Rachel Ralph defended valiantly in front of her. Littleton's forwards, Sophie Delaney and Saoirse Gooney, fought for every ball that came their way. Rachel Ralph scored Littleton's only score of the first half and at half time they trailed 1-2 to 0-1. It was still all to play for at this stage.

Tankerstown's lively play again caused Littleton problems at the start of the second half and their 

forwards added two goals that seemed to put the game beyond Littleton. However, Littleton thundered back into the game thanks mainly to the energetic and skilful play of the Shelly twins, Ciara and Caitlin, at midfield. The game now turned into a goal fest and any outcome was possible. Tankerstown added goals to their scoreline but so too did Littleton through Ciara and Caitlin Shelly and Rachel Ralph. Aoife Shelly was moved outfield and she helped herself to two well taken goals. Aimee Slattery continued to provide leadership through her determined defending. Substitutes Chloe Delaney and Tara Fox O'Brien were now in the game and they too played their hearts out. Unfortunately, time ran out for Littleton and at the final whistle Tankerstown were victorious on a scoreline of 8-5 to 5-3.

The Littleton team was heartbroken at the end but they deserve great praise and admiration for the outstanding performance they produced on the day. Congratulations to a talented Tankerstown team on their deserved victory.

Littleton N.S. Team: Aoife Shelly, Aimee Slattery, Rachel Ralph (capt) Ciara Shelly, Caitlin Shelly, Saoirse Gooney, Sophie Delaney.

Subs: Chloe Delaney, Tara Fox O'Brien, Rebecca O'Donoghue, Kelsey Conway, Nicole Lawlor, Gemma Fennessy Gooney, Paige Thackaberry, Ella Lee, Aoife Maher, Méabh Treacy, Sophie Fox O'Brien, Annie Dempsey, Abbie Moore.

Scorers: Ciara Shelly 1-1, Caitlin Shelly 1-1, Rachel Ralph 1-1, Aoife Shelly 2-0

Horse and Jockey KIA Mid Tipperary Under 21 B Hurling Final
The Ragg was the venue for the Horse and Jockey KIA Mid Tipperary Under 21 B Hurling Final. Having comprehensively defeated Moyne Templetuohy / Thurles Gaels in the Semi Final, Moycarkey Borris were looking forward to this game but were not underestimating their opponents JK Brackens Óg who defeated Upperchurch-Drombane in their Semi Final.

Sean Everard threw the sliothar in and from the start supporters knew there was a battle occurring as a ruck ensued with JK Brackens winning the ball. Within seconds JK Brackens were awarded a free but they missed the opportunity of a point with the following free a missed chance as well. However, Moycarkey Borris were not that unfortunate and in the third minute Anthony McKelvey capitalised on Moycarkey’s free. Jordan Moloney, JK Brackens equalised in the following minute and in the sixth minute Lyndon Fairbrother put them in front with a pointed free. Moycarkey Borris’s Anthony McKelvey replied with three unanswered frees in the following minutes and as the quarter turned, Moycarkey led by two points. JK Brackens were unsettled until in the eighteenth minute Lyndon Fairbrother (free) and David O’Shea brought the score line back level. JK Brackens settled from this point on and Moycarkey had to step up their play. Another pointed free from Anthony McKelvey was traded with Lyndon Fairbrother’s keeping the side’s level. In the twenty fifth minute Moycarkey Borris’s Tom Hayes recorded their first point from play but Neil Quinlan neutralised this. The next point from play went to Jack Fallon putting Moycarkey ahead going in at the interval, Moycarkey Borris 0-7 JK Brackens 0-6.

It was all to play for in the second half and Moycarkey did that with three unanswered points in the first ten minutes from Anthony McKelvey (2, 1 free) and Jack Fallon. Lyndon Fairbrother added a point in the fourteenth minute to keep just three between the sides. The play had tightened up immensely and every ball was hard fought but Moycarkey managed to add a further two points from JJ Darmody and Anthony McKelvey (free) before Lyndon Fairbrother pointed a free for JK Brackens. Moycarkey had a four point cushion at this stage but there was to be a final burst from JK Brackens in the final five minutes which transpired to be ten when extra time was added. The sides traded two points each in the following minutes, Moycarkey’s from Jack Fallon and Kieran Cummins. But JK Brackens added a further two points from substitute Brian Roche reducing the margin to two points. The pressure was now on Moycarkey and Anthony McKelvey pointed as normal time finished. The next few minutes were critical as a three point margin could be easily wiped with a goal and this is what JK Brackens hoped to do. Anthony McKelvey pointed another free to stretch the lead to four but Paddy Cadell added a point of his own to bring the margin back to three. Moycarkey Borris’s backs were defending well but inevitably fouled a JK Brackens player. A free for JK Brackens followed and Moycarkey poured into the back line, the ball would deflect of a Moycarkey hurl to go over the line for a 65. From the 65 Moycarkey defended the short ball and managed to take control of it. The final whistle blew to the relief of the Moycarkey supporters who poured onto the field to congratulate the players. The final score Moycarkey Borris 0-16 JK Brackens 0-13.

Joe Kennedy, Mid Board Chairman presented the Moycarkey Borris Joint Captains, Chris McCullagh and Niall Heffernan with the Cup thanking both sides for a tremendous game. Chris McCullagh thanked John Kelly and his management team, supporters and the club for their support. Moycarkey Borris will proceed to the County Tipperary Semi Final in the coming weeks against the South champions

Clubhouse Update
In March 2017 Moycarkey Borris GAA Club signed a building contract with Cooldine Construction, however after meeting poor ground conditions on part of the foundations, work had to stop while proposed solutions were investigated. The solution which was best suited to the Club was the relocation of the club house. Planning permission was sought and granted by Tipperary County Council in July. An Appeal was made by neighbouring residents to An Bord Pleanala on 21st August 2017 against the grant of this planning permission which was seeking the relocation of Clubhouse previously granted. The Club lodged its response to the Appeal, through its Planning Consultant, to An Bord Pleanala on 21st September 2017 and also wrote to and met with the appellants to try and deal with their concerns. The Club now has to await the outcome of the An Bord Pleanala appeal before it can proceed any further with its Clubhouse development. The current status from An Bord Pleanala is that the case is to be decided on 2nd January 2018. The Club remains fully committed to providing a new Clubhouse for its players, members and supporters.

Congratulations to Moycarkey Borris who defeated Thurles Sarsfields in the Horse and Jockey Kia Mid Tipperary Under 21 B Hurling Losers Group Final. The game was never in doubt as by the second minute Moycarkey Borris had scored 1-3 to Thurles Sarsfields single point. Thurles Sarsfields tried in vain to get the ball to their half but each time it crossed the mid-way line, the Moycarkey Borris backs defended well and sent the ball to their forwards.

The Late John Coman, Ballygammane & Coldfields 

It is with sadness that we announce the death of John Coman, Ballygammane and Coldfields. A member of the great sporting family the Comans of Coldfields, the late John played hurling with the Moycarkey-Borris club in all grades up to senior. He was selected on the Mid Tipperary senior hurling team for the Miller Shield inter divisional competition in 1957. A skilful and doughty forward, he played .half forward on the Two-Mile-Borris hurling team, winners of the Mid Tipperary No.2 junior hurling championship in 1957. A team that also included his brothers Paddy, the late Jimmy and some of his neighbours in Coldfields. Two other brothers, Joe and Justin later made their mark on parish hurling teams. Twenty years later he was a member of the Moycarkey-Borris team that won the last Mid Tipperary No. 2 junior hurling championship. A guard of honour will be held on Wednesday evening  to assemble outside Ulster Bank at 6 p.m.en route to Thurles Cathedral. Burial will take place on Thursday after 11 am Mass in St. Patrick’s cemetery.

Seamus O’Riain Cup Relegation - Knockavilla Kickhams 1-19 Moycarkey-Borris 1-16
Report by Ed Donnelly
Moycarkey-Borris lost out to Knockavilla Kickhams by three points in the last round of the Seamus O’Riain Cup Relegation competition on Saturday in Boherlahan. However, thanks to their two big wins over Borrisokane and Ballingarry, Moycarkey-Borris survive and Knockavilla Kickhams will join Borrisokane in the Intermediate ranks for 2018.

With Knockavilla needing at least a 12-point victory, the odds of them surviving were remote as the game started. Kickhams played with the aid of the strong wind in the opening half and raced into a two-point lead in the opening stages following points by Ger Browne and Eoin Carew. Moycarkey-Borris responded with points from play by Phil Kelly and Pat Carey. Kickhams were playing the better hurling at this stage and a long range free by Eoin Carew dropped to Davy Butler who’s shot from close range hit the back of the net. Kickhams followed this up with three quick points to lead by six points after ten minutes.

Pat Carey added a point from play in the tenth minute but Kickhams continued to dominate and stretched their lead to 8 points after the first quarter, 1-8 to 0-3. At this stage, with Kickhams in dominant form, the 12-point winning margin required didn’t look impossible. Moycarkey-Borris received a further set-back when centre-back David Morris was forced off with a head injury in the 24th minute to be replaced by Kieran Cummins. While Moycarkey’s play didn’t improve significantly in the closing stages of the first half, the Kickhams scoring rate slowed down and by the interval, Moycarkey had reduced the deficit to 1-10 to 0-6.

Anthony McKelvey replaced Paul Dempsey for Moycarkey-Borris for the second half as the Mid side looked to get back in to the game with wind advantage. Moycarkey scored early points from Rory Ryan, McKelvey (free) and Pat Carey before Kickhams replied with two pointed frees. In the 41st minute, Anthony McKelvey gathered a long ball in to the danger area before being fouled at the expense of a penalty which was expertly converted for a goal by the same player. Further points by Pat Carey and Phil Kelly brought the sides level after 43 minutes, 1-12 to 1-12.

Moycarkey-Borris continued to play well and after 50 minutes, had taken the lead for the first time after points by Phil Kelly and McKelvey (free) to leave the scoreline 1-14 to 1-13. To their credit, Kickhams continued to put on the pressure and managed to dominate the closing stages. Goals were required for the West side and while they didn’t arrive, the Kickhams did manage to outscore Moycarkey by 0-6 to 0-2 in the last ten minutes to record a three-point victory, 1-19 to 1-16.
Moycarkey-Borris: Bill McCormack; Niall O’Sullivan, James Power, Kevin Moran; Conor Hayes, David Morris, Pat Molloy; Rory Ryan (0-1), Phil Kelly (0-5); Niall Heffernan, Pat Carey (0-4), Tom Hayes; Kieran Morris (0-3 frees), Paul Dempsey, Mossy Bracken
Subs: Kieran Cummins for David Morris (24m, injured), Anthony McKelvey (1-2, 1-0 penalty, 0-2 frees) for Dempsey (HT), Pat Ralph (0-1) for Ryan (50m), Matty Ryan for Kieran Morris (55m)

Tipperary Water County Junior A Hurling Championship Semi Final
On Sunday last Moycarkey Borris supporters travelled to Templemore to watch their Junior A Hurling team play Toomevara in the County Semi Final. Moycarkey Borris opened their game well with points from John Bergin (3) and a free from Brian Moran to be three points the better of Toomevara’s, Paddy Grace’s single point. Toomevara soon settled in the play and scored three unanswered points to equalise the game on the tenth minute. Brian Moran put Moycarkey back in front again in the fourteenth minute with another point but as the quarter turned Toomevara’s Paddy Grace equalised again. Points were traded again with Anthony Healy and Shane Nolan, Toomevara but on the nineteenth minute Toomevara’s Kieran Flaherty pushed them forward. This was aided by two more pointed frees from Paddy Grace before Moycarkey’s JJ Darmody raised their white flag. This was soon neutralised by a David Young point. In the final minutes of the half Gerry McGuire and Brian Moran traded two points with Paddy Grace to go in at half time Toomevara 0-12 Moycarkey Borris 0-9.

Toomevara opened the second half scoring with a point from Paddy Grace which Joey Doran neutralised. Shane Nolan on the thirty sixth minute stretched Toomevara’s lead to four points. Points were traded again in the forty second minute with Joey Doran and Paddy Grace. On the forty fourth minute Moycarkey rallied and added two quick points from Brian Moran and Anthony Healy to keep them in the game, Toomevara 0-15 Moycarkey Borris 0-13. This comeback was shortlived as Toomevara’s defence did not allow Moycarkey to build on it. Points from newly introduced substitute, Pauric Shanahan and Shane Nolan retained the four-point margin. Moycarkey sub Rob Doran scored their final point of the game but Paddy Grace added two further points for Toomevara to leave the final score; Toomevara 0-19 Moycarkey Borris 0-14.
Moycarkey-Borris: David Ryan; Mikey Bergin, Daniel Kirby, Timmy Ryan; Eric Fanning, Niall O’Sullivan, Rory O’Regan; Eoghan Hayes, Gerry McGuire (0-1); Jamie Costello, John Bergin (0-3), JJ Darmody (0-1); Brian Moran (0-4, 0-2 frees), Tony Flanagan, Anthony Healy (0-2)
Subs: Peter O’Brien for Mikey Bergin (injured), Joey Doran (0-2) for Jamie Costello (23rd), Rob Doran (0-1) for Tony Flanagan (h/t), Kevin O’Regan for Brian Moran (58th).
