Moycarkey Borris GAA Club Notes - 30th May 2016

posted by Michelle Donnelly

Senior Hurling
The first game of the Centenary Agri Mid Senior Hurling Championship was played in Holycross between Moycarkey Borris and JK Brackens on Sunday last. Many expected this to be a tightly contested battle and the first half of the game was just that. In this first minute Shane Scully, JK Brackens opened the scoring with a pointed free. Tom Hayes and Pat Ralph opened Moycarkey’s scoring with a point each. Dean McEnroe, JK Brackens equalised on the fourth minute and the teams traded three points each before JK Brackens took the lead with two points as the game entered the second quarter. Two more Pat Ralph points to Shane Scully’s single point were added to the score line before Niall Heffernan raised the green flag. This goal gave Moycarkey the cushion they needed and also, the determination for the final seven minutes. Six more points for Moycarkey to JK Bracken’s four points meant Moycarkey Borris went in at half time Moycarkey 1-13 JK Brackens 0-12.

The second half started with a frenzy of scores in the second minute the first score was a Lyndon Fairbrother point for the Brackens, just before Kieran Morris netted the ball for Moycarkey followed quickly by a Shane Bourke point for the Brackens. The next Moycarkey score came in the fourth minute, a point from Pat Carey. Moycarkey received a free in the seventh minute and Pat Ralph’s rasper of a shot rattled the net, stretching Moycarkey’s lead to nine points. In the following ten minutes Moycarkey scored an unanswered two points, Tom Hayes and Kieran Morris and a goal by Conor Hayes. The teams traded two points each before Moycarkey added another two unanswered points, Brian Moran and Pat Carey. Moycarkey Borris 4-20 JK Brackens 0-16. Moycarkey Borris now progress to the Mid Semi Final.

Intermediate Hurling
Clonoulty Rossmore hosted Moycarkey Borris in round three of the County Intermediate Hurling League yesterday evening. The opening minutes of the game were nip and tuck with the opening score for Clonoulty Rossmore in the fourth minute. In the sixth minute Moycarkey Borris equalised and this is the way the game proceeded until the twenty second minute when Clonoulty’s Fiachra O’Keeffe netted the ball. In the following minute, a scuffle in the front of the Moycarkey goal resulted in the ball crossing the line to put Clonoulty ahead by four points. Both sides traded a further two points to go in at half time, Clonoulty Rossmore 2-7 Moycarkey Borris 0-9

The second half was a different affair with Clonoulty Rossmore adding three quick points to their score line before Moycarkey added their first in the thirty sixth minute. There was a repeat of the scoring in the next six minutes, with a point each traded before the game entered the final quarter. The margin had increased to eight points before Clonoulty netted the ball in the fiftieth minute. Clonoulty added two further points in normal time before Eamon Clohessy rattled the net for Moycarkey. The concluding score of a point by Ciaran Clohessy reduced the shortfall again to nine points, Clonoulty Rossmore 3-16 Moycarkey Borris 1-13

Senior Hurling
Moycarkey-Borris 3-19 Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams 1-10
Moycarkey-Borris have progressed to the next round of the County Challenge Cup following a comprehensive victory over Kickhams at Dundrum on Friday evening. Kickhams started the game well with two points in the opening minute but a Pat Ralph goal in the second minute kick-started a period of dominance where Moycarkey scored 1-4 without reply. The Kickhams managed to work a goal of their own in the 18th minute to reduce the deficit to just two points but Moycarkey kicked on again, scoring three unanswered points to ensure an interval lead of five points, 1-9 to 1-4.

Kickhams needed a good start to the second half but alas it was Moycarkey who scored two quick points followed by another Pat Ralph goal to double Moycarkey’s lead. Game over. Both teams emptied the bench in the second half and one of the few highlights of the game thereafter saw substitute James O’Gorman work a one-two with Kieran Morris before O’Gorman finished expertly to the net after a strong run through the centre of the Kickhams defence. By the end, the deficit was 15 points – 3-19 to 1-10.

Points were traded before Upperchurch raised the green flag to stretch the margin to five points. Upperchurch added three points to Moycarkey’s single point with Upperchurch now leading by 6 points after 15 minutes. Moycarkey hit a purple patch in the second quarter, scoring five points and a Ciaran Maher goal to Upperchurch’s two points, to go in at half time with the game equalised, Moycarkey Borris 1-9 Upperchurch Drombane 1-9.

Points were exchanged in the opening minutes and Upperchurch added their second point in the thirty third minute just before Upperchurch scored a goal.

The second half was barely underway when Kyle Shelly pounced for the game’s opening goal to double Moycarkey’s advantage. Despite the best efforts of Durlas Óg, Moycarkey stayed in front by six points or more during the remainder of the second half until Darren Flood scored Moycarkey’s second goal in injury time to cap off an impressive display for the boys wearing red and yellow – final score Moycarkey Borris 2-12 Durlas Og 0-9.

Club Plan & Development Update
The first review of the Club Plan 2015:2020 is now up on the website with significant progress made in its first year. It is great to see the first phase of the Development works completed with the Hurling wall finished and in use by all panels. Weather conditions are now favourable to allow for the second phase of works to commence which involves the levelling, realignment and drainage of the front pitch. Final amendments to the design of the Clubhouse are also currently being agreed by the Club and it is anticipated that this third phase of works will commence later this year. Following the success of the Strictly Come Dancing, the club has agreed to purchase two concrete dugouts for the far pitch and these are expected to be in place next month.

The Club would like to sincerely thank all those who have contributed to date to the Club Development ‘Pledge a Grand’ fundraising scheme. As the Club has not yet reached our required funding we would strongly encourage all other members, players and supporters of the Club to join our ‘Pledge a Grand’ campaign and assist the Club financially with this important project. We are actively working to encourage more households to join, as we need more households to get involved to make this project a reality.
Please contact John Corcoran (086 3883573), Finance Chairperson, Moycarkey Borris GAA Club or check out the Club website for details of how to contribute to the project.


County Senior Hurling Championship
Moycarkey Borris continued their Senior Championship by travelling to Templetuohy to compete against Moneygall in the next round, on Sunday last. Moneygall and Moycarkey Borris both suffered defeats in the first round so it was a must win game for the teams. Moycarkey’s Niall Heffernan opened the scoring with a point in the first minute and quickly followed it with a ball direct into the back of the net. In the next seven minutes Pat Carey traded three points with points from Moneygall’s Mike Ryan, Philip Fanning and Willie Greene. The purple patch of scoring was over for the next ten minutes as both teams battled hard with the ball flowing from end to end. As we entered the final fifteen Moycarkey added a further five points from Tom Hayes (1), Kieran Morris (3) and Rory O’Regan (1) to Moneygall’s four points. Moycarkey Borris 1-9 Moneygall 0-7

Kieran Morris and Ger Kirwan traded opening points at the start of the second half. Kieran pointed again in the third minute but Moneygall’s reply this time was a goal by Adam Hogan. The deficit was now reduced to three points. Moycarkey added three more points to Moneygall’s single point as the game entered a stalemate until the twenty first minute when Adam Hogan again raised the green flag for Moneygall. This was Moneygall’s final score but Moycarkey Borris continued to add a further five points to their score line to take victory they required to avoid a relegation playoff. All focus is on the Mid Championship when we meet JK Brackens in a few weeks. Moycarkey Borris 1-19 Moneygall 2-9

Moycarkey team – Bill McCormack; James Power, Paul Dempsey, Kevin Moran; James Bourke, Pat Molloy (0-2), Chris McCullagh; Rory O’Regan (0-1), Conor Hayes (0-1); Tom Hayes (0-1), Rory Ryan, Kieran Morris (0-6, 0-4 frees); Pat Ralph (0-2, 0-1 free), Patrick Carey (0-4), Niall Heffernan (1-1).

County Intermediate Hurling Championship
Moycarkey-Borris and Lattin Cullen Gaels contested a County Intermediate Hurling Championship match at a damp New Inn field on Saturday evening. While it was Lattin’s first game in the competition, it was a must win game for Moycarkey-Borris following a comprehensive defeat to the other team in Group 3, Galtee Rovers.

From the throw-in, Moycarkey-Borris got off to a good start with three points from play in as many minutes from Ciaran Clohessy and John Bergin (2). This start was short lived however as Lattin Cullen Gaels scored the next five points (three from placed balls) to take the lead at the end of the first quarter. Jamie Fanning scored a point from play in the 16th minute to bring Moycarkey back in to contention and when sub Brian Moran scored a goal in the 21st minute it put the Mid side back in front. The sporting cliché that a team is most vulnerable after scoring a goal was borne out as Lattin Cullen replied with a green flag of their own moment later after Moycarkey failed to deal with a long delivery in to the danger area. Lattin Cullen would go four points up heading to the interval only for points from Ciaran Clohessy and Brian Moran (free) to leave the half-time score Lattin Cullen 1-9 Moycarkey-Borris 1-7.

Moycarkey got off to a fast start again in the second half with points from play by Jamie Fanning and Ciaran Clohessy to bring the sides level. In an exciting second half, the scores would be level on 8 different occasions as both clubs defied the conditions to serve up a good game of Championship intensity. With Tipperary Under 21 hurler Mark Russell in good form (scoring 7 points from play on the night), Lattin Cullen Gaels took the lead on three occasions over the next 10 minutes only for Moycarkey to draw level each time courtesy of Brian Moran frees.

As the game entered the final quarter, Lattin Cullen took the lead again with a point only for Moycarkey to take the lead courtesy of a goal by Brian Moran. As with Moran’s first half goal, Lattin Cullen’s response was immediate as they scored a goal from the next phase of play to retake the lead. For the next 10 minutes, Lattin Cullen extended their lead to two points on three occasions but Moycarkey replied each time to keep in touch. In the final stages, Moycarkey hit a purple patch, scoring 3 quick-fire points from play courtesy of James O’Gorman, Brian Moran and Kieran Cummins to bring the sides level heading in to stoppage time. With a draw looking a likely result, Moycarkey won a free which Brian Moran converted to give his side the lead. From the resultant puck-out, Lattin Cullen won possession and earned a free which they duly pointed with the last puck of the game to secure a share of the spoils.

Moycarkey are likely now to be engaged in a relegation playoff with attention turning to the Mid Championship in the meantime.

Moycarkey-Borris team and scorers - Eamon Clohessy; Mikie Bergin, Aidan Maher, Micheal Cussen; Kieran Cummins (0-1), Joe O’Sullivan, Eric Fanning; Mattie Ryan, James O’Gorman (0-1); Mossy Bracken, Ciaran Clohessy (0-3), Jamie Fanning (0-3); John Bergin (0-2), Robert Doran, Tony Flanagan
Sub: Brian Moran 2-8 (0-7 frees) for John Bergin (injured, 18m)


Mid Tipperary Junior Hurling League
After an opening victory in the Mid Tipperary Junior Hurling League Moycarkey Borris hosted Gortnahoe Glengoole on Friday last. There was a strong breeze in Littleton and this was a factor in the game. Gortnahoe had the aid of the elements in the first half and scored five unanswered points before Moycarkey opened their scoring with a Ciaran Maher point as the game entered the second quarter. Moycarkey added a further two points by Ciaran Maher while Gortnahoe added a further goal and four points to go in at half time Gortnahoe Glengoole 1-9 Moycarkey Borris 0-3

After a goal and point by Ciaran Maher in the opening stages of the second half, a Moycarkey Borris comeback looked imminent. In the 34th minute, JJ Darmody raised the green flag for Moycarkey and with a two point margin, points were traded by the teams in the thirty sixth minute.

Club Plan & Development Update

posted 3 May 2016, 13:14 by Michelle Donnelly


The first review of the Club Plan 2015:2020 is now up on the website with significant progress made in its first year. It is great to see the first phase of the Development works completed with the Hurling wall finished and in use by all panels. Weather conditions are now favourable to allow for the second phase of works to commence which involves the levelling, realignment and drainage of the front pitch. Final amendments to the design of the Clubhouse are also currently being agreed by the Club and it is anticipated that this third phase of works will commence later this year. Following the success of the Strictly Come Dancing, the club has agreed to purchase two concrete dugouts for the far pitch and these are expected to be in place next month.

The Club would like to sincerely thank all those who have contributed to date to the Club Development ‘Pledge a Grand’ fundraising scheme. As the Club has not yet reached our required funding we would strongly encourage all other members, players and supporters of the Club to join our ‘Pledge a Grand’ campaign and assist the Club financially with this important project. We are actively working to encourage more households to join, as we need more households to get involved to make this project a reality.
Please contact John Corcoran (086 3883573), Finance Chairperson, Moycarkey Borris GAA Club or check out the Club website for details of how to contribute to the project.
