Under 16 Hurling
Boherlahan Dualla was the venue for the Mid Tipperary Under 16 B Shield Final on Sunday last. In a very tight competitive game, Moycarkey Borris and Thurles Gaels could not be separated, Moycarkey Borris 2-3 Thurles Gaels 1-6. Both teams are no strangers to each other and have competed against each other since playing at Under 14 level providing close encounters each time.

Daniel Brown opened Moycarkey’s scoring when he pointed a free in the fifth minute. The game ebbed and flowed from end to end until the end of the first quarter when Ben O’Dwyer netted the ball for Moycarkey. Thurles Gaels had yet to find their rhythm but in the twentieth minute Cian Gleeson commenced their scoring with an excellently placed ball in the back of the net. From the resulting puck out, the ball was worked in to John Coffey and he raised Moycarkey’s second green flag. For the final ten minutes both sets of defenders safeguarded their goals and neither team added to their score line before the half time whistle, Moycarkey Borris 2-1 Thurles Gaels 1-0.

Thurles Gaels now had wind assistance for the second half and piled the pressure on to the Moycarkey-Borris defence. While the Gaels were struggling from play, the concession of numerous frees by the Moycarkey gave Chris Munroe of Thurles opportunities from placed balls. Munroe duly obliged, scoring five pointed frees and a ’65 to put his side in to a two point lead heading in to the last five minutes. In the fifty sixth minute, Moycarkey registered their first score of the second half which was a point from play for Shane Bourke. This was closely followed by a pointed free for Moycarkey’s, Daniel Brown to equalise the game. Time ran out for both teams to get the next score so the game finished level. Moycarkey Borris 2-3 Thurles Gaels 1-6.

Moycarkey Borris team – Liam McDonagh; Owen Sheridan, Paudie O’Gorman, Michael Maher; Daniel Brown, Dylan Shaw, Lewis Kearney; Brian O’Callaghan, Bill Hackett; Shane Bourke, Ciaran Kirwan, Ben O’Dwyer; Pat Hackett, John Coffey, Brendan Looby.
Subs used – Tom Maher for Brendan Looby (h/t), Jack Fitzgerald for Ciaran Kirwan (37th minute)
Scorers – Ben O’Dwyer (1-0), John Coffey (1-0), Daniel Brown (0-2 frees), Shane Bourke (0-1)

Thurles Gaels – Gareth McCarthy; Cillian Donaghy, Shaun Kennedy, Robert Donoghue; Aaron Cooke, Shane Ryan, Shane Stapleton; Chris Munroe (0-6, 0-5 frees, 0-1 ‘65), Dylan Molumby; Jack Keogh, Paraic Loughnane, Oscar Lipinski; James Butler, Cian Gleeson (1-0), Jack Murphy

Camogie and Ladies Football Club
Liam Britton, Former Chairman RIP

It was with great sadness that we heard of the passing of Liam Britton. Liam was an esteemed member of Moycarkey-Borris Camogie and Ladies Football Club during the mid-70’s and 80’s. A former Chairman of the Club, Liam was also a selector for many teams throughout those years. He was a selector for the 1980 Ladies Football team who won the All Ireland 9-a-side tournament in Dublin. Moycarkey-Borris were the Tipperary representatives and they defeated Cavan in the Final to win the Poitín Still Trophy.

The following year Liam Britton was also a selector for the Moycarkey-Borris Junior team who defeated Cappawhite by thirteen points in the County Junior Camogie Final.

Liam Britton took great pride in supporting the club and its players at club and County level. He travelled far and wide supporting the club and always had a seat free if anyone wanted a lift.

The Club organised a guard of honour for Liam as he entered Moycarkey Church for the final time. Liam will be missed greatly by the club and his friends. Rest in peace.

Intermediate Football
The AIB Thurles Mid Intermediate Football Final was held in Holycross on Saturday last with only two teams in the competition it was a straight Final Moycarkey Borris and Moyne Templetuohy in ideally autumnal conditions.

John Hassett, Moyne Templetuohy was the first to get a point in the second minute but a quick reply from Moycarkey’s midfielder Pat Carey in the third minute equalised the game. In the following ten minutes, the next four points of the game came from Moyne’s Odhran Lloyd; one from a 45 and the other three resulting from frees in Moycarkey back area as their defence battled hard against Moyne. For the next quarter Moycarkey settled more into the game and Moyne just managed to get two points, one of which was a shot which was lucky to hit the upright and rebound back in between the posts. The final score of the half went to Moycarkey’s Rory Ryan as the teams finished Moyne Templetuohy 0-7 Moycarkey Borris 0-2.

The intensity that Moyne showed in the first half had declined and the game ebbed and flowed from end to end. The first two points of the second half was for Moyne’s Odhran Lloyd with Tomás Hassett getting the third in the forty seventh minute. The margin had increased to eight points and the ninth was to come from Tom Meade in the fifty second minute. Both teams battled hard but Moycarkey for the final eight minutes set about regaining some of the deficit with a point from Rory Ryan in the fifty third minute which was followed in the next minute with a point from Tony Flanagan. The teams subsequently traded points before the final point of the game went to Rory Ryan. Moyne Templetuohy 0-12 Moycarkey Borris 0-6.

Moycarkey team - Daniel Kirby; Joe O’Sullivan, Paul Dempsey, Brian Moran; Kevin Moran, Christopher McCullagh, Pat Molloy; Pat Carey, Conor Hayes (Captain); Pat Ralph, Rory Ryan, Niall Heffernan; Michael Foley, Tony Flanagan, Niall O’Sullivan.

Junior B Football
Congratulations to Moycarkey Borris Junior B team who overcame Upperchurch Drombane in the Jim and Anne Kennedy Mid Tipperary Junior B Football Championship on Saturday last.

Minor A Hurling
Holycross-Ballycahill eased in to the Mid Minor A Hurling Final with a facile 26 point victory over Moycarkey-Borris at Boherlahan. Holycross played with the strong wind in the opening half and blitzed Moycarkey in the early stages with four points in the opening four minutes. When Darragh Woods struck a 20 metre free to the top of the net in the fifth minute, the writing was on the wall for Moycarkey and by the 10th minute, the score was 1-11 to 0-0 with wing-forward Darragh Woods contributing 1-7 of the 1-11 tally. Moycarkey were now employing a sweeper to lessen the damage being inflicted and this had an immediate impact as Holycross only added 1 point to their tally over the next 12 minutes. Meanwhile, Moycarkey got off the mark with a Jack Fallon point from play in the 15th minute.

Holycross were not to be denied for long however and soon the scoreboard began to ramp up at an alarming pace, as the leaders rattled off another 1-6 in the final 8 minutes of the first half with the solitary reply from Moycarkey being a pointed free from Anthony McKelvey to leave the half-time score – 2-18 to 0-2.

With the result not in doubt, Moycarkey looked to redeem some measure of respectability early in the second half as they now played with wind assistance. The early stages of the third quarter were promising as points from Jack Fallon and Anthony McKelvey (2) were matched by three Holycross points in the opening ten minutes of the second half. Any hopes of a sustained second half performance for Moycarkey evaporated in the 40th minute when Darragh Woods scored his second goal from a 20 metre free to put Holycross in to a 3-22 to 0-5 lead.

The tempo of the game dropped considerably from here and the teams shared the final 10 points as the game petered out to its inevitable conclusion – Holycross-Ballycahill 3-27 Moycarkey-Borris 0-10.

Moycarkey-Borris: Jack Bryan; Philip Ryan, Kieran Kearney, David O’Donnell; Sean O’Meara, Zach Jackson, Michael Murphy; Donal Fitzpatrick, John Cussen; Kevin O’Regan, Eoin Hayes, Jack Fallon (0-2); Darren Flood, Anthony McKelvey (0-7, 0-3 frees), John Kirwan
Subs; Caolin O’Brien for Kirwan (42m), Shane Maher (0-1) for Fitzpatrick (48m), Tom Ryan for Cussen (50m) and Mark Heffernan for Flood (56m)

Under 16 Mid Final
Moycarkey Borris are on the road to another County Final Semi Final this year after a comprehensive defeat over Holycross Ballycahill in the Eamon Darmody & Sons Mid Tipperary Under 16A Hurling Final on Saturday in Boherlahan.

An early goal from James Dillon set the defending Mid and County champions Moycarkey on the road and this was followed with points from Jack Fallon and John Kirwan (2) to Ben Slattery’s pointed free for Holycross after five minutes. The game continued at the same high pace and the scoreboard reflected this with further points from Darren Flood (4), John Kirwan and Jack Fallon to another pointed free from Ben Slattery Holycross, leaving the score line after twenty minutes Moycarkey Borris 1-9 Holycross Ballycahill 0-2. The point scoring for Moycarkey Borris was accurate and kept the scoreboard busy but the goals evaded them with three goals chances missed. This was corrected in the twenty third minute as Darren Flood raised the green flag for Moycarkey Borris. Another three unanswered points for Moycarkey Borris saw them go in at half time sixteen points the better of Holycross Ballycahill, Moycarkey Borris 2-12 Holycross Ballycahill 0-2.

Following an earlier fracas in the dying minutes of the first half Holycross Ballycahill returned to the field with fourteen players but they were not at the loss of this in the opening minute when Frank Hanafin opened their scoring as he netted the ball. Moycarkey Borris next score came from an impressive sideline ball taken by Jack Fallon which was directed between the posts. The next seven minutes saw both teams trade three points each. Moycarkey Borris hit another purple patch of scoring with three unanswered points before there was a swap of a point in the fiftieth minute. Substitute Aidan Scott raised the green flag for Moycarkey in the fifty third minute stretching the margin to twenty points. Jack Fallon and John Kirwan scored two more points before Max Hackett rattled the net for Moycarkey’s fourth goal. Moycarkey Borris scored three more points from Darren Flood (2) and Diarmuid Maher before the final score from Rhys Shelly whose long range free evaded the Holycross goalie for a fifth goal for Moycarkey Borris. Final score - Moycarkey Borris 5-25 Holycross Ballycahill 1-6.
