Munster U21 Final: Three in a row for Clare


Report from GAA.ie

Clare’s dominance of the U21 grade continued on Wednesday night in Ennis as they swept to a third consecutive Munster title in a row with a hugely convincing 15-point victory over Cork. The win, Clare’s fourth in the province in six seasons, means their bid for three All-Ireland U21 titles in a row remains firmly intact. They will face Ulster champions Antrim in the All-Ireland semi-final on August 23.

It was a totally dominant win which never looked in doubt. Clare took control in the first half, and were 11 points ahead by the 21st minute. Cork eventually composed themselves, but they were never able to threaten Clare on the board. Clare took control of the game right from the start in Cusack Park, firing over after a few seconds through Aaron Cunningham. Further points followed swiftly, with Tony Kelly, Bobby Duggan and Peter Duggan on the scoresheet, and Clare led 0-9 to 0-1 with 20 minutes gone.

They then broke through for a goal to cement their total dominance on the scoreboard. A rapid break up the field ended with Shane O’Donnell surging through on the Cork goal and smashing the sliotar to the roof of the net to put the home side 11 clear. Cork rallied somewhat before the end of the half with points from Mark Sugrue and Rob O’Shea, but Clare finished the half as they started it, with Bobby Duggan firing over after some brilliant work from Eoin Enright.

Clare were 1-15 to 0-5 ahead at the break, and for Cork to have any chance of getting back into the game, they needed a goal early in the second half. They managed one on 42 minutes. Alan Cadogan forced a superb save from Keith Hogan, and a scramble ensued when the resulting ’65’ was pumped towards the Cork goal. Anthony Spillane showed great determination and guile to win possession amid a mass of Clare bodies, and he kicked to the net past Hogan.

The gap remained 11 at that stage though, and when Clare responded immediately with two points, including one fine effort from the outstanding Colm Galvin, they led by 13 points as the game entered the final quarter. The final 15 minutes were fairly pedestrian, as Clare coasted to the win. They kept the scoreboard ticking over in the closing stages, with Galvin adding to his tally and sealing a majestic display, and Bobby Duggan taking his individual haul to 0-10.
Scorers for Clare: B Duggan 0-10 (6f, 0-1 ’65′), A Cunningham 0-4, S O’Donnell 1-0, T Kelly 0-3 (1 ’65’), Colm Galvin 0-3, D Reidy 0-3, Peter Duggan 0-2, Shane Gleeson 0-2, C O’Connell 0-1 (1f)

All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Final – Limerick 4-26 Wexford 1-11

Limerick defeated Wexford by 4-26 to 1-11 in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Final on Sunday July 27th at Semple Stadium Thurles.

SHC Quarter-Final: Limerick destroy Wexford

GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship Quarter-Final: Limerick 4-26 Wexford 1-11

Report by Jackie Cahill for GAA.ie

TJ Ryan’s Limerick hammered Wexford by 24 points in this afternoon’s All-Ireland senior hurling championship quarter-final at Semple Stadium.
The Shannonsiders ran riot against a fatigued Wexford team playing for the fourth successive weekend in the championship. Limerick forward Shane Dowling, one of the plus points to emerge from the recent Munster final defeat to Cork, helped himself to a personal haul of 2-8, including 2-3 from play.

Limerick’s massive win sends them through to a second successive All-Ireland semi-final and in a fortnight’s time, when the Treaty men will lock horns with Leinster champions Kilkenny. Having taken out All-Ireland champions Clare and Waterford in their previous outings, Wexford travelled to Thurles with high hopes and in big numbers. But their dreams were dashed by a clinical Limerick, who could even afford the luxury of shooting 16 wides.

Wexford were simply blown away and their afternoon ended on a sour note when full-back Matthew O’Hanlon was sent off in stoppage time for a challenge on Dowling. By half-time, this tie was effectively over as a contest as Limerick had opened up a 3-15 to 0-8 lead.

David Breen, excellent for Limerick, scored Limerick’s first goal in the 28th minute before Dowling netted twice in first half stoppage time. Dowling’s brace sucked any remaining life out of Wexford and the second half was a procession as the game petered out to an inevitable conclusion. Limerick continued to pile on the misery as midfielder Paul Browne charged through the heart of the Wexford defence to blast home a 37th minute goal.
Scorers for Limerick: S Dowling 2-8 (0-5f), D Hannon 0-4, D Breen & P Browne 1-1 each, G Mulcahy, T Ryan & S Tobin (1f), 0-3 each, J Ryan 0-2, W McNamara 0-1.

Scorers for Wexford: S Tomkins 1-0, D O’Keeffe 0-3, J Guiney 0-3 (1f, 1 65), P Doran & C McDonald 0-2 each, P Morris 0-1.

All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Final – Tipperary 2-23 Dublin 0-16

Tipperary defeated Dublin by 2-23 to 0-16 in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Final on Sunday July 27th at Semple Stadium Thurles.

SHC Quarter-Final: Tipperary too good for Dublin

GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship Quarter-Final: Tipperary 2-23 Dublin 0-16

Report from GAA.ie

Tipperary advanced to an All-Ireland semi-final meeting with arch rivals Cork after seeing off the disappointing challenge from Dublin at Semple Stadium in Thurles to ease their way to a 2-23 to 0-16 victory. It turned out to be a one-sided encounter with Tipperary opening up an interval lead of 0-15 to 0-8 and they wrapped it up in the second-half with John O’Dwyer firing home two goals for Eamon O’Shea’s men.

Dublin only led once in the game and that was when Danny Sutcliffe hit the opening score in the first minute. Lar Corbett got Tipperary moving with two sublime points in the opening five minutes with his only two scores of the game, but by the interval all Tipperary’s forwards had found their range and the game was slipping away from Dublin.

Seamus Callanan, who produced another superb display, put Tipp ahead by two goals when he pointed a ’65’ after 22 minutes to make it 0-10 to 0-4 before Dublin rallied with points from Alan McCrabbe and Johnny McCaffrey. But Tipperary finished the half with a flourish with John O’Dwyer, Noel McGrath and Gearóid Ryan finding their range to leave them seven points up at the break.

Dublin, now with the wind, needed a strong start to the second-half but it was Tipp who got it when Ryan pointed. McCrabbe pulled back a free for Dublin and after a brace from Callanan which left Tipp nine to the good, Anthony Daly’s men hit their best spell with a couple of points from Paul Ryan. But he had a penalty saved by Brendan Maher, and while Conal Keaney pointed the rebound to reduce the margin to six after 50 minutes, the game ended as a contest when James Woodlock and Callanan combined to set up O’Dwyer for his first goal.

Both sides emptied their benches at that stage but Tipp kept pulling further ahead and O’Dywer got his second goal after 64 minutes when an effort from Patrick Maher was saved by Alan Nolan but the rebound fell kindly for him and he sealed a facile win which has left Daly pondering his Dublin future.

“I’m a good while there now. I don’t know. We would have to give it long, hard thought. I suppose everyone involved in that dressing-room will be thinking about that,” said the Dublin manager afterwards. “We won’t make decisions like that now. We’ll take a few weeks now to clear the head and think about things and evaluate the situation.”

Scorers for Tipperary: S Callanan 0-11 (7f, 2 ‘65), J O’Dywer 2-2 (0-1f), G Ryan 0-3, L Corbett 0-2, S McGrath 0-1, Patrick Maher 0-1, J Woodlock 0-1, N McGrath 0-1, S Bourke 0-1.

Scorers for Dublin: A McCrabbe 0-5 (5f), C Keaney 0-2, P Ryan 0-2 (1 ’65), R O’Dwyer 0-1, L Rushe 0-1, J McCaffrey 0-1, D Sutcliffe 0-1, D Treacy 0-1, D O’Callaghan 0-1, E Dillon 0-1.

Electric Ireland All-Ireland Minor Hurling Championship Quarter-Final – Waterford 2-18 Dublin 0-19

Ryan fires two goals as Waterford defeat Dublin in All-Ireland minor quarter-final

Waterford 2-18 Dublin 0-19

Report from thescore.ie

CAPTAIN SHANE RYAN fired home two goals to help Waterford defeat Dublin in today’s Electric Ireland All-Ireland minor hurling quarter-final in Thurles. Waterford bounced back from last Tuesday’s Munster final replay loss to Limerick with De La Salle club man Ryan crucially raising a green flag in each half. Patrick Curran, Shane Bennett, Peter Hogan and Cormac Curran all impressed in the scoring stakes as well for the Deise youngsters as they set up an All-Ireland semi-final meeting with Kilkenny on August 10th.

Dublin saw their season draw to a close. After defeat in the Leinster final, they had good performances today from Shane Barrett, Rian McBride, Con O’Callaghan and Chris Bennett but their failure to hit the net cost them in the end. Waterford were in front by 1-8 to 0-8 at the interval with Ryan’s finish to the net in the 14th minute propelling them into the lead. That score helped them go 1-4 to 0-2 in front although the accuracy of Bennett kept Dublin in touch as they cut the gap by the interval.

There was a burst of scores from both sides after the break and Dublin trimmed the deficit to two points on a couple of occasions. But the crucial score arrived when Ryan broke through for his second goal of the match in the 42nd minute after being set up by Colm Roche. That pushed Waterford into a 2-12 to 0-13 lead but Dublin admirably fought back. Substitute Sean Gray made a decent impression and they were only 2-16 to 0-19 adrift in the closing stages. But Waterford finished strongly to secure the spoils thanks to points from Hogan and Bennett.

Scorers for Waterford: Shane Ryan 2-1, Patrick Curran (3f) & Shane Bennett (1 sl) 0-4 each, Cormac Curran & Peter Hogan 0-3 each, Darragh Lyons 0-2, Colm Roche 0-1.

Scorers for Dublin: Chris Bennett 0-8 (6f), Con O’Callaghan, Tom Fox, Eoin O’Conghaile & Sean Gray (1 65), 0-2 each, Rian McBride, Eoghan McHugh & Sean Ryan 0-1 each.

All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Round 4A – Galway 4-17 Tipperary 4-12

SFC Round 4A: Galway hold on to win thriller

GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship Round 4A: Galway 4-17 Tipperary 4-12

Galway made short work of Tipperary thanks to four goals each side of half-time which set up a meeting with Kerry in next weekend’s All-Ireland football quarter-final. Fiontán Ó Curraoin and Tom Flynn hit the net before the break, while Danny Cummins and Michael Lundy put the result beyond all doubt with goals in the 36th and 37th minutes.

Brian Fox got one back for Tipp in the 12th minute of the second-half, but at that stage Galway were rampant and it hardly interrupted their canter to victory. Three goals from Brian Mulvill and Colin O’Riordan and a Conor Sweeney penalty meant Galway’s lead was well trimmed in the end, but they had the work done at that stage.

The opening 20 minutes were dominated by Tipperary though and they led by 0-6 to 0-4 after Colin O’Riordan’s sweet score. But Galway took over from there to the interval and after a Shane Walsh point earned with a sublime piece of control, O’Curraoin and Flynn’s goals set them on the road to victory with a 2-7 to 0-7 half-time lead.

Fifty seconds after the restart Cummins rattled the Tipp net for the third time, while Lundy followed suit just over a minute later following good work from Michael Martin and Paul Conroy. Fox – who was lucky to escape a black card earlier – rattled home a fine Tipperary goal in the 47th minute, but Galway eased to the win as Paul Varley, Walsh and Sean Armstrong all kicked late points.
Scorers for Galway: S Walsh 0-5 (3f), M Lundy, D Cummins 1-1 each, M Martin, P Conroy 0-3 each, F Ó Curraoin, T Flynn 1-0 each, S Armstrong 0-2, P Varley, D Comer 0-1 each.

All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Round 4A – Cork 0-21 Sligo 1-11

Cork defeated Sligo by 0-21 to 1-11 in Round 4A of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship on Saturday July 26th at O’Connor Park Tullamore.

SFC Round 4A: Cork ease past Sligo

GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship Round 4A: Cork 0-21 Sligo 1-11

Report from GAA.ie

Colm O’Neill kicked ten points for Cork as they easily earned an All-Ireland football quarter-final against Mayo next Sunday. Sligo never recovered from the concession of eight points in a row in the first quarter, but managed to pull Brian Cuthbert’s side back to four points after Stephen Coen’s fisted goal in the 51st minute.

But Cuthbert emptied the bench and an impressive cameo from Fintan Goold as well as Paul Kerrigan’s five-point haul saw Cork into the last eight.
Cork enjoyed wind advantage in the opening half as they tried to bounce back from their disappointing loss to old rivals Kerry in the Munster final. Manager Cuthbert, who had made a string of stages from the Munster final loss, lined out with just four forwards up front and pulled players back behind the ball and just crowded Sligo.

Sligo struggled to combat the tactic when they were playing against the wind with Cork going with a two-man full-forward line of Colm O’Neill and Donal Óg Hodnett, with Brian Hurley and Paul Kerrigan in the half-forward line. Cork’s tactic worked and having conceded 0-24 in the Munster final, their defence was much more tight this time round and Sligo found it difficult to get scores.

Sligo did make a bright start when Mark Breheny opened the scoring after three minutes but Cork’s dominance started to become apparent. And once Cork got an edge they quickly turned the screw and hit eights points in succession as they made great use of the extra space up front. But Cork soon gained a stranglehold on the game and eight points on the spin, quenched all of Sligo’s hopes.

O’Neill got the Rebels off the marking and Kerrigan, who was also outstanding for Cork, edged them in front after seven minutes. Two minutes later, Hodnett made the most of a great delivery from Hurley to find the target. Despite the best efforts of Charlie Harrison and Brian Curran on the front foot, the Cork dominance continued and after frees from Hurley and O’Neill, midfielder Ian Maguire capped his senior championship debut with Cork’s sixth point. Kerrigan then landed two in succession to open up an 0-8 to 0-1 lead after 24 minutes.

Sligo badly needed scores but Adrian Marren missed a free before he then hit the target. However, the Rebels finished the half strongly and a fisted effort and then a 45 from O’Neill left them 0-10 to 0-2 in front at the interval. Sligo made a positive start to the second-half with frees from Marren and Mark Breheny giving them hope.

And their prospects of a comeback gain momentum when Stephen Coen reduced the margin to five with a fisted goal after 51 minutes. But Cork regrouped and took control and points from O’Neill, Kerrigan and dual star Aidan Walsh saw them home to set up a clash with Mayo at Croke Park as Pat Flanagan’s first season in charge of Sligo came to an end.
