Tesco All-Ireland Ladies Football club championship final – Inch Rovers (Cork) 0-9 Carnacon (Mayo) 0-7

Tesco All-Ireland Ladies Football club championship final

Inch Rovers (Cork) 0-9 Carnacon (Mayo) 0-7

by Jackie Cahill at Leahy Park, Cashel

CORK dual star Mary O’Connor kicked five points as Inch Rovers were crowned Tesco All-Ireland Ladies senior club football champions for the very first time on Sunday.

O’Connor led the scoring charge at Cashel’s Leahy Park as Rovers finally got one over on Mayo kingpins Carnacon, in the third All-Ireland final meeting between the two teams in just four seasons.

Rovers had suffered big-day heartbreak against Carnacon in 2007 and 2008 but despite registering a massive tally of 14 wides, the team operating out of Killeagh GAA club would not be denied on this occasion.

With the breeze at their backs in the opening half, Rovers established a 0-6 to 0-3 half-time lead and they more than matched Carnacon in the second half to secure the Dolores Tyrrell Memorial Cup.

Cork defender Angela Walsh enjoyed a ding-dong battle with Carnacon’s Mayo county star Cora Staunton and this duel would go a long way towards deciding the outcome of the game.

Staunton hit 0-5, including three frees, over the course of the game but Walsh can look back on her display with a considerable degree of satisfaction as Staunton was unable to wreak a massive amount of havoc.

With just seconds remaining, Carnacon were reduced to 14 players when another of the team’s county stars, Martha Carter, received a yellow card from referee Joe Murray.

The game was gone from Carnacon by then and the final whistle sparked jubilant scenes from Inch Rovers, who follow in the footsteps of previous Cork winners Newtownshandrum, Watergrasshill, St Enda’s and Donoughmore.

This was Carnacon’s fourth final appearance in five years and while the Westerners had some real class in their team, Inch Rovers displayed the greater hunger from the first whistle.

Scores were hard to come by, however, on a bitterly cold afternoon although the Leahy Park sod held up extremely well after the tie was switched from Banagher.

Two O’Connor frees sandwiched a fine Jessica O’Shea point from play to hand Rovers a 0-3 to 0-0 lead after 17 minutes of playing time.

Michelle McGing landed the first Carnacon point in the 19th minute but O’Connor responded with two superb points from play off her trusty left boot, as Rovers surged 0-5 to 0-1 clear.

Staunton, extremely quiet until then and on the receiving end of some intense Rovers tackling whenever she got possession of the ball, kicked two quickfire frees to keep Carnacon in touch.

That Staunton brace brought Carnacon back to within two points of a wasteful Inch Rovers, who racked up six of their 14 wides in the first half, before Amy O’Shea, a late replacement for Fiona Neville, pointed for Rovers.

A three-point half-time lead was a precarious position for Rovers having played with the wind advantage but it would prove enough as the new champions decided that attack was the best form of defence in the second half.

Anne-Marie Walsh was in superb form at left half back for Rovers, bombing forward time and time again from defence to assist a hard-working Rovers midfield and attack.

In the centre of the park, Annie Walsh pulled the strings with a powerful display and she kicked the opening point of the second half, three minutes after the restart, as Rovers moved 0-7 to 0-3 in front.

Staunton responded with a 35th point for Carnacon but Tipperary native Jill Horan kicked arguably the score of the game in the 38th minute.

The Premier County camogie star picked up possession 45 yards from goal, knifed through the Carnacon defence and landed a superb point into the breeze.

Now four points down, Carnacon were in big trouble and their attempts to get back into the game became increasingly desperate.

Staunton landed a free before registering her team’s very first wide of the day, with eight minutes of normal time remaining.

At the other end, Inch Rovers were ruining some good approach play with wasteful finishing and Staunton could have made them pay in the 52nd minute, shooting straight at Rovers captain and goalkeeper Gearoidin Kearney.

O’Connor (free) and Staunton traded points as Rovers held a 0-9 to 0-6 advantage, which was almost wiped out by Michelle McGing in the 60th minute.

Midfielder McGing let fly with a fine shot from 20 metres but Kearney produced a fine save to preserve her ‘clean sheet.’

Aoife Brennan completed the scoring as Carnacon kept pushing but time ran out for the three-time winners as Inch Rovers celebrated a famous win.

Scorers for Carnacon: C Staunton 0-5 (3f), M McGing & A Brennan 0-1 each.

Scorers for Inch Rovers: M O’Connor 0-5 (3f), J O’Shea, Annie Walsh, J Horan & A O’Shea 0-1 each.

St Mary’s firepower too much for Bruree

St. Mary’s (Kerry) 2-12 Bruree (Limerick) 0-4

By Diarmuid O’Flynn for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Monday, December 13, 2010

THE final scoreline suggests a landslide, a one-sided game in which underdogs Bruree could barely keep the ball kicked out to St. Mary’s, but that would be too simplistic a description. In the possession stakes the Limerick champions were well able to match up with the men from the southern reaches of the mighty Kingdom; in former Limerick senior hurling captain James Vincent O’Brien they had a ball winner par excellence; in the likes of wing-backs Kieran O’Rourke and Vincent Stanton and wing-forwards Tommy O’Brien and James C O’Brien, Bruree they had ball carriers of pace and power. Unfortunately for them, however, when it came to most crucial skill of all — the ability to put the ball between the posts — they had no-one.

Well, maybe one in Gerard O’Brien, who managed two points from play, but that was about it. Some of their shooting was outrageously bad — shots from inside the 20m line and dead centre that went wide, so wide in one case that it didn’t even reach the end-line. A pity, because had they been able to convert their possession into scores, as admitted by star St. Mary’s midfielder Bryan Sheehan, it might have been something of a contest. “In these kind of games you don’t know much about the teams you’re meeting, you don’t know much about people, all you can do is look after yourself,” Sheehan insisted.

“We were concerned at half-time about the amount of possession they were winning, we spoke about how much ball they had. Maybe our ball-handling wasn’t up to scratch, we dropped a few balls in the square, where we shouldn’t have done. But we got off to a great start, the two early goals made a big difference — if they had got those, it might have been a different game. We hoped to get a good start, kill things off as soon as we could, and lucky enough we managed to do that.”

Inside the first minute St. Mary’s had their opening goal, wing-forward Austin Constable making no mistake with a second chance from point-blank range, and when corner-forward Daniel Daly pounced for their second major just six minutes later, it left Bruree with a mountain to climb. They never even made the foothills though. Every St. Mary’s forward scored from play, and Bryan Sheehan showed his inter-county credentials with a near impeccable display from placed balls, two points from outside the 45m line in his final tally of four. Not a great test for the champions, but not a true reflection of the footballing worth of Bruree either.

Scorers for St. Mary’s: A. Constable 1-2 (0-2 frees); D. Daly 1-1; B. Sheehan 0-4 (all frees); A. Walsh 0-2; R. Keane, P. O’Donoghue, W.A. O’Sullivan 0-1 each.

Mary’s turn on the style

MUNSTER CLUB JFC FINAL

Monday December 13 2010

AN early scoring blitz saw Caherciveen’s St Mary’s run out convincing winners in this encounter at Mallow yesterday. The Kerrymen scored two goals in the opening six minutes through Austin Constable and Daniel Daly and Bruree were under the cosh from there on. Paddy Kelly pointed a free for the south Limerick side after four minutes. However, once John Golden and Kerry star Bryan Sheehan took control at midfield, there was always going to be only one result. Sheehan was deadly from frees while Bruree’s only other first-half score was a Gearoid O’Brien point. Mary’s led by 2-6 to 0-2 at the break and hit the game’s last six points in a decisive win.

Scorers — St Mary’s: A Constable 1-2 (0-1f, 0-1 sideline, D Daly 1-1, B Sheehan 0-4f, A Walsh 0-2, R Keane, P O’Donoghue, J A O’Sullivan 0-1 each. Bruree: G O’Brien 0-2, J O’Brien, P Kelly 0-1f each,

Mighty Meelin have all the skills

Meelin (Cork) 5-18 St. Patrick’s (Tipperary) 0-9

By Diarmuid O’Flynn for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Monday, December 13, 2010

IN their green-and-gold jerseys the Cork champions looked like Newtownshandrum, moved like Newtownshandrum and played like Newtownshandrum. But this was Meelin, a new and coming force on the Cork hurling scene. Mind you there is a strong Newtownshandrum connection; Bernie O’Connor, father of the famous twins Ben and Jerry, is a native of the parish and a former club star. But there’s the more salient fact that their manager, Liam Ryan, is from Newtown and his stamp is all over this new Meelin style of play.

“Intelligent hurling,” said Ryan “That’s the Newtown style. Intelligent hurling is that when they get the ball, they look, and they deliver the ball at pace, that’s what it’s all about.” That’s what it was all about for Meelin yesterday. It took them a few minutes to get to grips with the Tipp representatives, but once they did it was a rout. The doughty men from Duhallow were again far too strong, too organised, too skilful for the opposition and ran out convincing winners. St. Patrick’s corner-forward Tony O’Brien notched the two opening points, but, on a good dry surface, the Meelin attack soon got into gear and the scores began to flow. Corner-forward Eamonn Brosnan was the main man, scoring 1-2 in the next few minutes to put Meelin into a lead they would never lose. Full-forward Jeremy Curtin and DJ O’Sullivan in the left corner each goaled in that opening half, wing-forwards John Forrest (2) and Brendan O’Sullivan (3) were potting great points from wide outside while centre-forward Shane O’Riordan did an outstanding job on the 40.

With Liam Collins and William Murphy ruling the roost in midfield, William Buckley, Kevin Collins and captain Jerry Forrest providing an additional platform in the half-back line, the supply to the forwards was constant, but more significantly, it was purposeful. Given such dominance then (and we haven’t mentioned the suffocating qualities of Mike Forrest, Denis O’Riordan and Diarmuid Lenihan in the full-back line, nor the alertness of keeper Stephen M O’Sullivan), little wonder that the Cork champions led by 16 points at the break (3-12 to 0-5). To their credit, St. Patrick’s never gave up and even as Shane O’Riordan and DJ O’Sullivan had further Meelin goals, the Tipp outfit stuck gamely to the task. Tony O’Brien remained their main threat, but full-forward Brian McCormack helped himself to a point after a fine leaping catch. No doubt about the winners, however, no doubt that they deserved it either.

Scorers for Meelin: E Brosnan 1-7 (0-3 frees); DJ O’Sullivan 2-1; J Curtin 1-2; S O’Riordan 1-1; B O’Sullivan 0-3; J Forrest 0-2; W Murphy, W Buckley, 0-1 each.

Scorers for St. Patrick’s: T O’Brien 0-6 (0-3 frees, 0-1 65); B McCormack, S Horan, W McCormack, 0-1 each.
