Moycarkey Borris Strictly Come Dancing
The DVD for Moycarkey Borris was officially launched in Darmody’s Bar, Littleton on Saturday last. There was a great turnout for the night and all are now enjoying their DVD’s. Well done to all the dancers and the organising committee. DVD’s are available for sale from dancers, organising committee.

County Senior Hurling Championship
On Saturday evening last Moycarkey Borris and their supporters travelled to New Inn to start their Senior Championship. While this was a round two game for most other clubs including Carrick Swan, Moycarkey Borris had had a bye in the first round. Carrick Swan had recorded a victory over Moneygall in the first round so another victory here meant they were would win the group.

It was an all to play for game and with that in mind Moycarkey opened the scoring with two pointed frees from Kieran Morris. Carrick Swans replied with two pointed frees from Danny O’Hanlon. Further points from play from Aaron Dunne and Kevin Lanigan saw Carrick go in to a two point lead. A Conor Hayes point as we entered the second quarter, with a netted ball two minutes later put Moycarkey to the fore again. Moycarkey hit a purple patch and added a further four points; Pat Ralph (1) and Kieran Morris (3) to Carrick’s single point from Eric O’Halloran. On the twenty fourth minute points were exchanged and the first half was brought to a close when Kieran Morris and Danny O’Hanlon traded frees. Moycarkey Borris 1-9 Carrick Swan 0-8

Carrick with the aid of the breeze opened the second half scoring with two points from Eric O’Halloran and another from Danny O’Hanlon. Kieran Morris and Aaron Dunne in the thirty sixth minute traded points and again two minutes later. For the next ten minutes Moycarkey kept Carrick scoreless while adding three points to their score line, Kieran Morris (2) and Niall Heffernan (1). Frees were exchanged again at the fiftieth minute and as the game entered the final ten minutes Moycarkey had a margin of four points. Both teams added a further three points to their score line before substitute Damien McCarthy raised the green flag for Carrick as normal time ended. Due to an earlier heated break in play, causing the cessation of the game there was five minutes additional time and Carrick Swan used the time to equalise with a free from Danny O’Hanlon and a point from Aaron Dunne gave Carrick the second win they required, Carrick Swan 1-19 Moycarkey 1-18

Moycarkey Team:- Bill McCormack; James Power, Paul Dempsey, Kevin Moran; James Bourke, Pat Molloy, Chris McCullagh; Rory O’Regan, Conor Hayes (1-1); Tom Hayes, Gerry McGuire, Kieran Morris (0-13, 11 frees); Pat Ralph (0-1), Patrick Carey (0-1), Niall Heffernan (0-1).

Subs used:- Damien McCarthy (1-0)

Moycarkey Borris and Gortnahoe are no strangers to each other this year having met twice in the Mid Tipperary Under 21 competition with a number of Moycarkey’s players playing Minor and Under 21. Moycarkey and Gortnahoe battled hard for the points in the first half but two Darren Flood goals in the final six minutes of the half gave Moycarkey a five point margin, Moycarkey Borris 2-5 Gortnahoe 0-6.

Moycarkey opened the scoring straight away in the second half with a point from John Cussen and Moycarkey kept the pressure on throughout the half scoring another eight points to Gortnahoe’s goal and four giving the game to Moycarkey, Moycarkey Borris 2-14 Gortnahoe 1-10

Death of Former Club Chairman:
Father O’Meara (aged 96 years) who died recently was curate in the parish from 1955 to 1971 and was great a GAA administrator. He was a former Chairman and President of the Moycarkey-Borris club and became Chairman of the Mid Board in 1961 when he took over from Dr. Michael Russell. A position he held until 1969 when Tom O’Hara (Gortnahoe) succeeded him. He was also a Vice Chairman of the Co. Tipperary Board. In 1961 he was instrumental in having a motion passed at Mid and County conventions restricting the number of clubs in rural parishes to one. A decision at the time that was controversial but in hindsight was a very correct one, giving the difficulty that many clubs now have of fielding teams especially at under age levels. A native of Killoscully he played minor hurling for Tipperary and always had a great interest in Gaelic Games and followed the fortunes at all levels as he also did with athletics. The club was represented at his funeral.

Tomás McCarthy 

PPS Corn Aodh Uí Dhudha U15 A Final - Thurles CBS 2-17 De La Salle College 2-16 (AET): A late Darren Flood point grabbed a sensational Thurles CBS triumph as they pipped De La Salle for U15 A honours after an 80-minute battle at the Clonmel Sportsfield.

http://www.irishexaminer.com/remote/media.central.ie/media/images/t/ThurlesCBSU15AfinalcelebrateApr16_large.jpg?width=648&s=ie-392918

Gavin Corbett struck 1-2 in extra-time to move De La Salle 2-16 to 1-16 in front and on the brink of glory.

With one minute remaining, substitute Jack Lee seized on Flood’s 65 and blasted his shot through a cluster of defenders to level the match.

The Roscrea teenager was only introduced five minutes earlier.

In the next play, Flood belted over the winner and his 12th point in total to leave the Waterford school completely stunned.

The teams were on equal terms eight times overall. On 16 minutes, Mikey Cummins latched onto Darren Kenneally’s delivery and smacked a shot to the roof of the net.

An industrious De La Salle, driven on by captain Cian Wadding at number six, deservedly led 1-4 to 0-2 at that stage. Wind-assisted Thurles replied with six points in a row during a dominant second quarter. Flood scored five (four frees) before Jack Morrissey slipped them ahead for the first time. Paddy Leavey’s free tied it at the break (0-8 to 1-5).

Thurles had a goal disallowed on the restart for a square ball as Devon Ryan arrived too early to bat the sliotar in. Ryan made amends however with 40 minutes elapsed.

Cormac Walsh saved Flood’s initial shot but the vigilant Ryan whipped the rebound to the top corner.

De La Salle posted seven second-half wides, including four placed balls, yet Leavey recovered his composure to knock over two injury-time frees and force an extra 20 minutes (1-11 apiece).

Flood, Ryan, and Jack Morrissey manufactured a 1-16 to 1-12 advantage for Thurles during the first period.

This final took another twist in stoppage time when Gavin Corbett’s effort deceived Conor Stapleton and crept into the cobwebs. Salle kicked on at the start of the second half but Lee’s goal floored them.

Scorers for Thurles CBS:

D Flood (0-12, 9 frees); D Ryan (1-1); J Lee (1-0); J Morrissey (0-3); J Lanigan (0-1)

Scorers for De La Salle College:

P Leavey (0-7 frees); G Corbett, M Cummins (1-2 each); D Byrne (0-2 frees); T Ryan, D Kenneally, K Mahony (0-1 each)

Garda Cup Report

posted 29 Mar 2016, 05:08 by Michelle Donnelly   [ updated 29 Mar 2016, 08:51 ]

by Neil Ryan

Our opening action of the year took place in Dr.Morris Park last Saturday, March 26th with the staging of the Under 16 Garda Cup Inter Divisional Hurling Tournament. Unfortunately, the weather conditions were no conducive to hurling, but full credit has to be accorded to all the participants for the huge efforts put in. Rain coupled with a strong wind prevailed leaving very low temperatures and on very slippery pitches.

Round Robin format prevailed and all games were twenty minutes aside. The opening games commenced at 1.30pm with two games going simultaneously, on Pitch 1 the North played the West and the North men proved to be far superior with a 0-11 to a clear sheet at the interval. In the second period the West notched up 2-03 but their North opponents added a further 1-08 to win on a concluding score reading North 1-19 West 2-03.

In the other encounter it was a closer affair. On the fifth minute the Mid men had the South net rattled for the game's only goal. The South response came two minutes later with a point from Conor McGrath. Mark Stokes proved to be a very capable free taker for the South slotting over three points from frees and one came from play courtesy of Thomas Vaughan to give a South a total of five for the first half. Likewise Gearóid O'Connor pointed a free coupled with a point from play for the Mid to put the sides all square at the interval. Upon the restart it was the South that were stronger with a pointed Mark Stokes free and one from play by Martin Kehoe to put the South boys two up. The Mid reply was two pointed frees by Gearóid O'Connor to level the proceedings with ten minutes gone. Moments later another pointed free by Mark Stokes which was to be the last Southern score. The next additions to the score board came from Gearóid O'Connor with two pointed frees to give the Mid a single point victory on a concluding score reading Mid 1-06 South 0-08.

The second round of games commenced at 2.50pm with the South taking on the North with the South men enjoying a 1-05 to 0-03 lead at the interval. During the second period they added another five points while conceding 1-01 to win the contest on a concluding score 1-10 to 1-04. In the other decider the Mid were much too strong for the West notching up 1-17 while leaking just 1-02.

The concluding games commenced at 4.15pm with the Mid boys commanding the advantage having two victories to their credit and requiring a minimum of a draw against the North to clinch the cup. On the other hand if the North were to win and South did likewise against the West and managed to keep a near to curtail leaking scores they would have a chance of gripping the cup, as there was only the minimum separating both Mid and South in the scores conceded record. 

In the South v West game it proved to be more agony for the West men as the South coasted to victory leading 3-05 to 1-01 at the interval and only conceded a solitary point while adding 1-06 during the second half for a finishing reading of South 4-11 West 1-02.

The other contest between the Mid v North was a very hard fought encounter. In the opening period the Mid enjoyed the wind assistance and finished ahead at the interval 0-5 to 0-2.

In the opening moments of the second period the Mid scuffled three scoring opportunities and both sides were showing the strain of the previous games. The North converted two frees to narrow the margin to a single point. Then the Mid boys managed one last attack which resulted with a pointed free by Barry McGrath to give the Mid defending champions a two point victory. Concluding score line Mid 0-06 North 0-04.

County vice chairman Martin Bourke prior to presenting the Cup to Mid victorious captain David Manning thanked the referees Tom Loughnane, Sean Peters and Shane Hodgins and also all involved at Dr. Morris Park.
