Late Cian Hennessy score sees Tipperary football final end in stalemate

Report from the Irish Times newspaper

Loughmore-Castleiney 2-7 Cahir 1-10

There’ll be no second helpings of turkey or ham for the senior footballers of Loughmore-Castleiney and Cahir this week after they played out a thrilling draw in the Tipperary final in Cashel on Sunday.

Cahir thought for a few minutes that a late, long-range Benny Hickey free had given them just the second title in the club’s history but Cian Hennessy had other ideas. Taking a short Noel McGrath pass in the 59th minute, he weaved his way through to a shooting position and struck an equaliser which meant the sides have to meet again. Although announced after the game that the replay would be next Sunday in Cashel, the two clubs later decided to hold the match on St Stephen’s Day, with a throw-in of 1pm.

It was probably a fair outcome to a game which edged back and forth over the course of a tension-laden afternoon, where the pitch and conditions couldn’t have been better at this time of year.

Cahir left the traps in sharper form with an early Robbie Costigan goal, fisting home a Paddy O’Flaherty pass, or mis-hit shot, in the eighth minute to add to Dean Lonergan’s opening point.
However, a couple of quickfire goals from Loughmore-Castleiney put the reigning champions into a strong position. Liam McGrath got the first of those, driving an unstoppable shot to the roof of the net to finish a sweeping move involving Hennessy, Noel McGrath and John McGrath.

The second green flag was raised by Hennessy when he reacted quickest to an excellent save by Brian Enright and sent the rebound to the net. The lead changed sides a number of times in the second half, before an official attendance of 1,550, before Hickey got Cahir’s last score in the 54th minute to put them ahead, only for it to be cancelled out by Hennessy’s effort in the second last minute of normal time.

LOUGHMORE-CASTLEINEY: D Brennan; L Egan, W Eviston, T McGrath (0-2); T King, C McGrath, J Ryan; N McGrath, D Kennedy; A McGrath, C Hennessy 1-1), L Treacy (0-2, two frees); L McGrath (1-0), E Sweeney, J McGrath (0-2, two frees).
Subs: J Nyland for E Sweeney (47 mins), J Meagher for L Egan (49 mins), E Connolly for D Kennedy (58 mins).

CAHIR: B Enright; M O’Connor, G Hally, C Casey; S O’Connor, A Casey, R Costigan (1-0); E Kendrick (0-1), L Casey; B Hickey (0-3, all frees), P O’Flaherty (0-1), S Murphy; P Whelan (0-3, all frees), D Lonergan (0-2), J McGrath.
Subs: E Donaghy for M O’Connor (34 mins), N McKenna for S Murphy (53 mins).

2014 Munster GAA Awards – Players & Manager of the Year


Senior Players and Manager of the Year Announced for 2014 Munster GAA Awards

Cork hurler, Patrick Horgan, Kerry’s James O‘Donoghue and Kerry Senior Football Manager, Eamonn Fitzmaurice have secured the hurler, footballer and manager of the year accolades respectively in the 2014 Munster GAA Awards. The awards will be presented on Saturday night at a gala dinner in Dromoland Castle, Co. Clare where over 30 players, officials and legends will be honoured.

Patrick Horgan was instrumental in securing Cork’s first Munster senior hurling title since 2006. He scored 8 points in the final and contributed 2-43 to Cork’s championship tally in 2014. His ability to get fantastic scores from play and frees made has made him the key player in the Cork attack. His leadership on and off the pitch are also hugely important to Cork and he widely recognised as a great ambassador for Cork hurling and the game in general.

Kerry’s James O’Donoghue wins the Footballer of the year award for the second successive season. His performance in the Munster senior football final was outstanding and ranks among the great performances in the many clashes between Kerry and Cork. He also played a key role in Kerry’s All Ireland success and has already won an All-Star and the much coveted GAA / GPA Footballer of the Year title for 2014 for his many exciting and match winning performances.

Eamonn Fitzmaurice has been named Manager of the Year for leading Kerry to the All Ireland senior football championship title in 2014. Overcoming the setbacks of retirements and injuries to some key players, his managerial, motivational and tactical skills were in evidence throughout the season as a young and relatively inexperienced Kerry team showed skill, determination, courage and flexibility in their game plan on their way to securing the county’s 76th Munster and 37th All Ireland titles. One of a younger generation of inter-county managers, Eamonn is a deserving winner of this year’s award.

Speaking on the announcement of these awards Robert Frost, Chairman of Munster GAA said “Patrick Horgan and James O’Donoghue contributed hugely to their teams march through Munster to secure titles for Cork and Kerry respectively. The success of Kerry in winning All-Ireland Senior honours following an intriguing football championship is a great tribute to the leadership and managerial skills of Eamonn Fitzmaurice and he is a deserving winner of Manager of the Year”

The full list of Munster GAA Award winners for 2014 are as follows:
Minor Hurling – Tom Morrisey (Limerick)
Minor Football – Matthew Flaherty (Kerry)
Under 21 Hurling – Seadhna Morey (Clare)

Intermediate Hurling – John Cronin (Cork)
Junior Football – Gavan O’Grady (Kerry)

2014 Munster GAA Awards – Hall of Fame Winners


Hall of Fame Winners Announced for 2014 Munster GAA Awards – Tipperary and Waterford Legends to join elite band

Tipperary hurling hero, Liam Devaney, and Waterford star footballer, Jim Wall, are the latest Munster legends to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, it was announced today. The two greats will receive their awards at the Munster GAA Awards Gala Dinner on Saturday, December 13 in Dromoland Castle, Co. Clare.

Tipperary and Borris-Ileigh’s Liam Devaney was a vital member of the great Tipperary team of the late 1950s and 1960s. Uniquely he played in every position bar full back for Tipperary. He was Texaco hurler of the Year in 1961 and he won 5 All Ireland senior medals, 9 National League medals, 8 Munster senior medals, 6 Oireachtas medals, 3 Railway Cup medals and 2 All Ireland and Munster minor medals. He played senior hurling with Borris-Ileigh from 1952 to 1974 winning a county championship in 1953. He will be remembered as one of the most skilful forwards of his generation and his contribution to Tipperary in an era of unprecedented success for the county will always be remembered.

The Nire’s Jim Wall is synonymous with football in Waterford. He has given a lifetime of service to football in his club and county. He also played with Munster and won a Railway Cup medal alongside many Munster football luminaries in 1972. He played football for Waterford from 1968 to 1974, a highlight of that period being Waterford’s spell in Division 1 of the National Football League in the 1971-72 league season. He captained his beloved Nire to the Waterford Intermediate title in 1971 and was a selector on the Nire team which won the club’s first county senior football championship title in 1993. He also served as a Waterford football selector.
Commenting on the announcement of the Hall of Fame winners for 2014, Robers Frost, Chairman of Munster Council said: “Liam Devaney was a star on Tipperary’s best ever team while Jim Wall has given many decades of sterling service to football in Waterford. Their many achievements are worthy of recognition and I am delighted to see them honoured with this year’s Hall of Fame awards”

Group 1

Thurles CBS have completed their four games and top Group 1 with 7 points. The fight for the second Quarter-Final place begins today when West Limerick Colleges play Blackwater CS in Charleville. A victory for the West Limerick Colleges will see them move ahead of Ardscoil Ris on 5 points. Ardscoil Ris play winless St. Flannans on Monday next at 1:30pm in Sixmilebridge knowing a draw or victory will see them qualify for the knockout stages.

Group 2

The best of Hollywood scriptwriters could not have come up with the final round scenarios in Group 2 with four teams level on four points, everyone with two wins and a loss thus far. It’s a case of winner takes all in the two games on the agenda in Round 5 as SNTN Doon play Gaelcolaiste Mhuire AG in Mallow while St Colmans Fermoy take on Castletroy College. Wins in either game will see the victors qualifying for the Quarter-Finals while a draw would bring score difference in to play. Two cracking Limerick versus Cork hurling clashes are in story in this group today.

Group 3

P.S Youghal have qualified for the knockout stages with six points from their three games. In the one game on the agenda today, winless Charleville CBS play St Caimins Shannon in Clarina with both teams out of contention. The other game in this group will see St. Francis College Rochestown playing Our Ladys Templemore on Friday next at 1:30pm in Cahir. Rochestown have also qualified for the knockout stages as group winners and will look to remain unbeaten and bring this momentum to the Quarter-Finals by continuing their good form against Templemore.

Group 4

Group 4 is also delicately poised as Nenagh CBS and Midleton CBS face each other today in Clonmel knowing that the winner will qualify for the Quarter-Finals as both schools sit on four points each. Hamilton High School Bandon have qualified for the Quarter-Finals with three wins from three thus far and take on Dungarvan CBS in Killeagh looking to remain undefeated heading in to the Quarter-Finals.

AIB Munster Club JFC Final – Brosna 0-15 Glin 2-6

Brosna (Kerry) defeated Glin (Limerick) by 0-15 to 2-6 in the AIB Munster GAA Club Junior Football Championship Final on Sunday December 7th at Mallow.

Battling Brosna deliver

By Edward Newman for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Brosna 0-15 Glin 2-6

Brosna completed a hat-trick of provincial club football titles for the Kingdom, overcoming the spirited challenge of Glin in a hugely entertaining AIB Munster Junior final at Mallow yesterday.

In a game that had a very competitive edge married to some wonderful passages of play on a bitterly cold December afternoon, the north Kerry side followed up Ardfert’s intermediate crown and Austin Stacks’ senior success to make it a memorable treble of Munster titles for football’s most decorated county.

Brosna’s title was built on industry, craftiness and precision up front and no player personified this more than their brilliant corner-forward Adam Barry. The former Kerry minor was in regal form, lighting up an intriguing contest by landing 0-8, a contribution that led his manager Jimmy Keane to describe the 21-year-old’s performance as “unforgettable and inspirational”.

Barry curled over a litany of beautiful points off left and right foot from a range of distances and angles while Shane Fitzmaurice, Aaron Cahill, Eamon Kiely, Dave and Shane Curtain and Tom McGoldrick all stepped up to the mark when the need was greatest. Those contributions were never more in demand after Philip Moloney blasted Glin’s second goal two minutes after the break to push the Limerick champions into a two-point lead in a match that captivated the huge attendance.

The game was still in the melting pot with just ten minutes left on the clock. Though Brosna were playing for a sixth consecutive Sunday, their energy levels never lagged – in fact they upped the tempo in the closing stages — and produced three points during this period to run out deserving winners in front of their huge support in an attendance of 3,086.

Glin’s movement was jauntier in the opening five minutes, and they should have been three points in front but their shooting over the hour proved their Achilles heel – Glin shot eight wides in total — while Brosna looked far more economical up front where Barry sparkled. Though Glin’s best forward Mark Culhane opened scoring in the 7th minute, Brosna took control and landed five successive points between the 8th and 21st minutes including two beauties from Barry, along with efforts from Shane Curtain, Tom McGoldrick and Don McAuliffe.

It looked like the north Kerry side would run riot but Glin responded against the run of play with a well-worked goal on 23 minutes. Good footwork and vision from Padraig Scanlon found the dangerous Culhane unmarked on the edge of the square and the big full-forward rounded Conor Kiely to finish coolly.

From there to half time both sides bossed possession and swapped some eye-catching points. Firstly, Mike Finnegan found Barry, whose golden touch never deserted him, while McGoldrick followed up to push out Brosna’s advantage to three points. However, Glin slowly began to find their range with points from the hard working Philip Moloney and Paddy Fitzgerald leaving it stand 0-7 to 1-3 at the break

Glin restarted in flying fashion and after Culhane pointed, Darren Sheehan did well to fist a pass into space to the hard running Moloney who, left unmarked, made no mistake from close range. That left Brosna three points in arrears but the Kingdom’s representatives didn’t panic. Eamon Kiely came close to goaling in the 35th minute but, by the 43rd minute, Dave Curtain levelled affairs before McGoldrick and Culhane swapped points to even up matters with just ten minutes left on the clock.

The intensity levels rose entering the closing stages with the Glin defence under all sorts of pressure that led Paddy Fitzgerald and Shane Culhane to receive black cards. Brosna took full advantage from Glin indiscipline, finishing with a flourish with points from McGoldrick and two from the effervescent Barry.


Glin’s first black card in the 52nd minute was the first sign of their slow demise and Brosna took over from there, kicking three match-winning points.

Talk of the town

A treble of AIB provincial club titles for the Kingdom.

Did that just happen?

Glin’s Shane Culhane takes off the tracksuit, replacing black-carded Paddy Fitzgerald in the 52nd minute. Three minutes later the same player receives a black-card and is putting his tracksuit back on.

Best on show

A no-brainer. Brosna’s Adam Barry gave an exhibition, curling over a succession of beauties off left and right foot. He scored 0-8 in total.

Black card watch

Glin’s Paddy Fitzgerald saw the line after a high and dangerous challenge on Adam Barry. Shane Culhane also saw black late in the second half.

Sideline superior

Brosna’s blanket defence in the first half led to Glin panic-shooting, while the deployment of Timmy Finnegan in the middle gave Barry space inside to wreak havoc.

The man in black

Alan Kissane kept this game skipping along nicely. Though the Waterford man flashed four yellow and two black cards, this was a sporting contest handled superbly by the official.

What’s next?

Brosna return to local action with County League and North Kerry Championship games to keep them tipping over; then in January they face an All-Ireland semi-final.

Scorers for Brosna: A Barry 0-8 (0-2 frees); T McGoldrick 0-4 (0-3 frees); S Curtain, D Curtain and D McAuliffe 0-1 each.

Scorers for Glin: M Culhane 1-4 (0-2 frees, 0-1 ‘45’); P Moloney 1-1; P Fitzgerald 0-1.

BROSNA: C Kiely; S Fitzmaurice, M Murphy, A Cahill; T Fitzgerald, E Kiely, F McAuliffe; D Curtain, S Curtain; D McAuliffe (capt.), T McGoldrick, P Curtain; T Finnegan, M Finnegan, A Barry.
Subs: E Prendeville for C Kiely (inj, 25); P O’Keeffe for Curtain (40); J O’Donnell for D McAuliffe (48).

GLIN: M Stack; T O’Connor, B Donovan, K Sweeney; P Costello, J Fitzgerald, J Wallace; P Moloney, E Horan; D Sheehan, T Culhane, K Moore; P Scanlon, M Culhane, P Fitzgerald (capt.).
Subs: T Scanlon for O’Connor (25); S Culhane for Fitzgerald (black card, 52); A Mulvihill for Culhane (black card 55)

Referee: A Kissane (Waterford)


AIB Munster Club JHC Final – Modeligo 5-12 Castlemartyr 0-14

Modeligo (Waterford) defeated Castlemartyr (Cork) by 5-12 to 0-14 in the AIB Munster GAA Club Junior Hurling Championship Final on Sunday December 7th at Mallow.

Devine intervenes for Modeligo

Castlemartyr 0-14 Modeligo 5-12

Report by Michael Moynihan for the Irish Examiner newspaper

The celebrations were held in Deckie’s Bar in Modeligo last night as the little club from west Waterford collected a first Munster JHC title in chilly Mallow yesterday. A clinical first half laid the foundations for Modeligo’s win over Cork champions Castlemartyr in a game which sketched out the truth about goals winning games: the Waterford side hit five and Castlemartyr none over the hour. The Waterford side were crisp and efficient, and they were quicker to get to the pace of the game, though both teams showed a touch of nerves early on with wayward shooting.

The Modeligo management made the most significant move of the game as soon as it started, taking midfielder Tom Devine from midfield to full-forward, where he caused endless problems for the Castlemartyr defence. On nine minutes Modeligo got the first goal of the game when Devine showed early for a free, turned his man and released Michael Troy with a good handpass. Troy had work to do, but his touch was good and his finish excellent – 1-2 to 0-2 in favour of the Waterford men, and Castlemartyr keeper Eanna McGovern had to look smart to deny Modeligo another goal soon afterwards.

On 12 minutes Modeligo struck again: Devine burst onto a breaking ball to race through and finish cleverly, slipping the ball past McGovern. When Kieran McCarthy added another point three minutes later it was Modeligo 2-3, Castlemartyr 0-3.
The Cork side, reliant on Barry Lawton’s frees up to then, hit two points from play but Modeligo continued to impress, Nicky O’Donovan’s long-range point in response to those Castlemartyr scores underlining their quality.

A late Lawton 65 looked to have narrowed the gap for Castlemartyr, but there was still time for Devine to intervene again – the big man broke a dropping ball near the square to corner-forward Michael Troy, who finished to the corner of the net, making it 3-6 to 0-6 at half-time.

Credit Castlemartyr, who roared out of the blocks for the second half: Barry Lawton hit three frees and brother Brian pointed from play in the opening six minutes to cut the deficit to five, but Modeligo found the net again on 38 minutes. The Cork side didn’t clear a ball rolling around the square and Jamie Troy nudged it over the line; when he (free) and Patrick O’Donovan added points the gap was nine again, 4-8 to 0-11.

The game died as a contest with ten minutes left, Jamie Troy feeding Devine, who hurtled through on an angle before crashing home his second and Modeligo’s fifth goal: 5-10 to 0-12. From there on the Waterford men kept their opponents at bay, their defence showing the same nous and support play as their attack, and ending the game 13 points ahead in a terrific performance. The Castlemartyr management sportingly acknowledged Modeligo yesterday as the best side they’d faced all year, and the Waterford men will surely fancy their chances of going one better than their county men Ballysaggart, beaten All-Ireland finalists last year.


Modeligo’s fourth goal, on 38 minutes, came at just the right time to kill Castlemartyr’s second-half momentum.

Talk of the town

Tom Devine’s performance at full-forward for the Waterford side. Has county boss Derek McGrath noticed?

Did that just happen?

Modeligo were making a DVD of their season and filmed contributions from players and management at the final whistle yesterday.

Best on show

Tom Devine was the star man — goaled twice and created two more for corner-forward Michael Troy.

The man in black

Limerick’s Johnny Murphy handled the game well.

What’s next?

Modeligo move on to the All-Ireland semi-final stage, against UK opponents, while Castlemartyr take a break for Christmas.

Scorers for Castlemartyr: Barry Lawton 0-10 (0-8 fs, 0-1 65); Brian Lawton, B. O Tuama, C. Bowens and E. Clifford 0-1 each.

Scorers for Modeligo: J. Troy 1-6 (0-4 fs); M. Troy, T. Devine 2-0 each; K. McCarthy 0-3; N. O’Donovan 0-2; P. O’Donovan 0-1.

CASTLEMARTYR: E. McGovern, O. Smiddy, R. O’Donovan, E. Roynane, D. O Tuama, B. Smiddy, A. Bowens, Briain O Tuama, Barra O Tuama (c), D. McAuliffe, Brian Lawton, J. Stack, C. Haines, M. O’Neill, Barry Lawton.
Subs: E. Clifford for Haines, 40; C. Bowens for O’Neill 47; P. Horgan for J. Stack, J. Lawton for D. O Tuama, both 54; J. Smiddy for D. McAuliffe, 55.

MODELIGO: D. O’Keeffe, J. McGrath, B. McCarthy, R. Buckley, S. Troy, P. Fitzgerald, S. O’Donovan, T. Devine, T. Walsh, K. McCarthy, J. Troy, N. O’Donovan, M. Troy, P. O’Donovan, P. Walsh.
Subs: R. Reddy for P. Walsh, 53; S. Hennessy for R. Buckley and L. Queally for T. Walsh, both 55; P. McCarthy for J. McGrath, 59.

Referee: J. Murphy (Limerick)
