Dream comes true for near perfect St Mary’s CBS

Report by Eoghan Cormican for the Irish Examiner newspaper

For 52 minutes or so of Saturday’s Drummond Cup decider, this was a near-perfect performance from St Mary’s CBS. The Leinster champions recovered from the concession of a sixth-minute goal to carve out an eight-point interval advantage, posting 1-7 without reply in the process. Their dominance continued apace at the change of ends, notching a further five unanswered points to move 13 clear. Their movement up front, use of possession and composure in defence ticked all the right boxes.

On 49 minutes, Josh Ryan converted a run-of-the-mill free to end Abbey CBS’s 43-minute barren spell. The midfielder, fetching an Andrew Vance delivery, finished to the net at the second attempt for goal number two and St Marys’ lead was further eroded when Ryan was tripped inside the large parallelogram on 54 minutes. Daire Egan converted the resulting penalty to reduce the gap to 1-13 to 3-1.

St Mary’s composed themselves and a massive free from Niall Lowry put paid to whatever comeback was stewing. “You are always wondering when you come up with a group of minors to Croke Park what way are they going to perform,” said winning manager Maurice Browne. “We knew we had the potential. To deliver on the day is very satisfying. In the last 10 minutes, they got two goals, but other than that, we dominated most positions, used the ball smartly and took our scores well. We had a meeting at the start of the year. We said we’d give it everything or we’d give it nothing. The lads decided they would give total commitment and we’d see how far that would take us. We never dreamed it would lead us to Croke Park. Dreams are made of this.”

Ciarán Larkin, impressive Dublin minor Colm Hulton, Adam Deering, Niall Lowry and Shane O’Neill tallied their eight first-half points. Hulton, collecting Shane O’Neill’s floated delivery, fired to the Abbey net on 16 minutes to cancel out Shane Neville’s well-taken goal at the other end. The Carlow school were desperately unlucky not to find the net for a second time in the subsequent action, Shane Ryan sweeping Jordan Morrissey’s kick off the line. Ross Dunphy’s point on 43 minutes meant St Mary’s front eight had all contributed from open play, this contest signed, sealed and delivered from a long way out.

Scorers for St Mary’s Academy CBS, Carlow: C Hulton (1-2); N Lowry (0-3, 0-2 frees); S O’Neill, A Deering, J Brennan (0-2 each); C Larkin, J Morrissey, R Dunphy (0-1 each)

Match Preview

The Masita GAA All-Ireland Post Primary Schools Drummond Cup (SF ‘B’) final between Abbey CBS and Carlow CBS will be a close affair.

Both teams were pushed to their limit in the semi-finals.

“We had to work extremely hard to overcome a very good Coláiste na Carraige side,” said Abbey CBS manager Damian O’Brien. “Our defence was tested to the limit and they kept us in the game when Coláiste na Carraige dominated possession in the second half, only conceding two points in the entire second half, this was a major achievement against a very well coached side.

“This allowed us to stay in the game and our players up the field showed great patience in slowly reeling in a four point deficit with 20 minutes to go.

“Our free-takers were clinical, finishing with six out of six, on what was a wild and windy day. We had to wait until injury time to lead and we had to ride our luck at stages but against very good teams at this level that’s what you have to do sometimes.”

They are in an All-Ireland senior football final for the 3rd time in our history. In 1998 they overcame St.Louis, Ballymena 1-13 to 0-10 in Croke Park and in 2005 they were defeated by Our Lady’s, Castleblaney 1-11 to 1-9 in Parnell Park.

The Abbey have only faced Carlow opposition once before – in the 1998 semi-final the Abbey defeated Knockbeg College by 4 points.

But now they face a school with massive pedigree. Carlow CBS won the Leinster Clonard Cup in 1962 and 1983 and won the Leinster ‘B’ hurling final against FCJ Bunclody in 1990 when Conor Kinsella’s dad, Rory was in charge of Bunclody while CBS was managed by Leo Hogan, their current principal. and the recently deceased and much loved Denis O’Grady.

“Carlow CBS will be a great challenge for us in the final,” O’Brien agreed. “They are an impressive outfit and play a very good brand of football. We will have to play at our best, fight hard for 60 minutes so as to be in with a shout in the closing stages.”

The school had Tipperary and Limerick minor hurlers in the first round of the Munster Minor Hurling Championship on Wednesday 8th April as well – Eoghan McNamara (Limerick captain) and Shane Neville & Tommy Lowry (Tipperary) which only adds to the challenge facing the school.

EirGrid Munster U21 Football Final – Tipperary 1-15 Cork 3-8

Tipperary defeated Cork by 1-15 to 3-8 in the EirGrid GAA Football Under 21 Munster Championship Final on Thursday April 9th at Semple Stadium Thurles.

Munster U21 Final: Tipp end Cork’s dominance


Tipperary are EirGrid Munster U21 football champions after a superb second half performance denied Cork a fifth successive provincial title in Thurles this evening. The Premier County recovered from the concession of Peter Kelleher goals either side of half-time to record just their second Munster title in this grade – and first since 2010.

Man of the match Ian Fahey and captain Colin O’Riordan, who lined out despite not being listed in the starting line-up, were superb.
Tipp were 0-8 to 0-3 ahead approaching half-time before Seán O’Donoghue pointed to bring Cork to within four points. And Kelleher notched a scruffy goal in first half stoppage time from Cathal Vaughan’s speculative delivery to cut the interval deficit to just a single point, 1-4 to 0-8.

Tipp were rocked within 14 seconds of the restart when O’Donoghue set up Kelleher for his second goal. But Tipp were in no mood to collapse and spurred on by O’Riordan, well enough to play despite being concussed on senior duty recently, they came roaring back.
Kevin O’Halloran, drafted in from nowhere to start, was superb too, kicking five of his six points from frees in front of 2,137 spectators.

And when Fahey netted midway through the second half, through Michael Martin’s legs, Tipp were 1-11 to 2-5 in front. Josh Keane smashed a shot off the crossbar soon after before O’Riordan pointed the follow-up. And O’Riordan was at it again in the 53rd minute to put Tipp five points clear and in control.

Points from Cian Dorgan and Cathal Vaughan had the visitors back within striking distance but scores from Jason Lonergan and O’Halloran had Tipp five clear again. Dorgan netted in the 59th minute and Tipp feared a repeat of the 2009 decider, when Cork snatched it at the death. Brian O’Driscoll’s late free had Cork just a point behind before Dorgan shot wide in the dying seconds.
Scorers for Tipperary: K O’Halloran 0-6 (5f), I Fahey 1-0, J Lonergan, J Keane (1f), P Maher & C O’Riordan 0-2 each, S O’Brien 0-1.

Scorers for Cork: P Kelleher 2-0, C Dorgan 1-1, C Vaughan 0-4 (2f), B O’Driscoll (f), S O’Donoghue & D Murphy 0-1 each.

Munster Under 21 Football Championship – Useful Information

  • Having failed to win a game in the Munster Under 21 Football Championship between 2002 and 2006, Tipperary have managed to win at least one match in this competition in 8 of the last 9 years, including the 2010 Munster title.
  • Cork are going for their fifth Munster Under 21 Football title in a row. Cork previously won 4 in a row from 2004-2007 with each title won against different opposition in the final (Kerry, Limerick, Waterford and Tipperary) and from 1979-1982. Cork have also won 3 Munster titles in a row in this competition from 1969-1971 and 1984-1986.
  • At the turn of the millennium, only Cork and Kerry had won Munster Under 21 Football titles with Kerry out in front in the roll of honour by 23 titles to 15. Since then, Limerick, Waterford and Tipperary have captured 1 title each while Cork have dominated to the extent that a victory in the 2015 Munster Under 21 Football Championship will see the Rebel County pass out Kerry on the roll of honour.
  • Kerry won five Munster Under 21 Football titles in a row from 1995 to 1999, winning the All-Ireland in three of those five years – 1995, 1996 and 1998.
  • 4 of the last 7 Munster Under 21 Football Finals have been decided by one score or less – 2008 (Kerry 0-15 Tipperary 2-7), 2009 (Cork 1-9 Tipperary 2-5), 2010 (Tipperary 1-7 Kerry 1-6), 2012 (Cork 2-12 Kerry 1-14 AET)
  • For the record this will be Cork’s 39th Munster final appearance; Tipperary will be appearing in their 12th final (the seventh since 2007). Kerry have appeared in 35 finals, Clare in 10 finals; Waterford in 8 finals and Limerick in 4 finals.
  • Cork Captain, Brian O’Driscoll’s father Gene coaches the Cork team. Along with his brothers, Colm and Kevin, Brian is also a member of the Cork senior football panel.
  • The Tipperary management team, albeit with Tommy Toomey as under 21 manager taking the managerial mantle from senior manager, Peter Creedon, comprise the same personnel as the senior football management team. The other management team members are Michael O’Loughlin and Eoghan Cooney.

Munster MHC Q-Final – Tipperary 1-14 Waterford 0-16

Tipperary defeated Waterford by 1-14 to 0-16 in the Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling Championship Quarter-Final on Wednesday April 8th at Semple Stadium Thurles.

Munster MHC: Tipperary deny Déise in Thurles


Tipperary booked their place in the semi-finals of the Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling Championship this evening, despite registering just 1-3 from play. Liam Cahill’s Premier County didn’t play particularly well but still did just about enough to set up a last four provincial showdown with Clare on July 1.

Tipp registered eleven points from placed balls – eight Daragh Carey frees and three points from Brian McGrath, including two crucial 65s in the closing minutes. And Waterford can consider themselves slightly unfortunate to have been pitched into a play off with Limerick, having looked the better team in the first half. With Aaron O’Sullivan picking off four points from play, Waterford were 0-9 to 0-6 clear approaching the break.

O’Sullivan had gone close to an early goal for Waterford, denied by Padraig Hayes, and Tipp didn’t manage a score from play until sub Lyndon Fairbrother pointed in the 26th minute. But Fairbrother was on target again on the half hour mark and in first half stoppage time, Ruadhan Mulrooney scrambled home the game’s only goal after David Gleeson and Fairbrother were denied.

Ahead by 1-7 to 0-9 at the break in front of 2,821 spectators, Tipp went behind after the restart and the second half was level five times. But after McGrath edged Tipp in front with six minutes remaining, from a well-taken 65, Carey put two between the sides.

Waterford’s leading scorer Jack Prendergast responded for last year’s beaten Munster finalists but McGrath struck again to restore Tipp’s two-point advantage. Waterford kept going as Eoghan Murray reduced the deficit again but Peter Hogan shot wide in stoppage time as the Déise searched in vain for an equalising score.

Scorers for Tipperary: D Carey 0-8 (8f), R Mulrooney 1-0, B McGrath 0-3 (2 ’65s’, 1f), L Fairbrother 0-2, L McCutcheon 0-1.

Scorers for Waterford: J Prendergast 0-6 (6f), A O’Sullivan 0-4, C Lyons 0-2, D Lyons 0-1 (1f), E Meaney 0-1, G Waters 0-1, E Murray 0-1.

Electric Ireland Munster MHC Q-Final – Cork 2-20 Limerick 1-13

Cork defeated Limerick by 2-20 to 1-13 in the Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling Championship Quarter-Final on Wednesday April 8th at Pairc Ui Rinn.

Munster MHC: Cork cruise to win over Limerick


A fine second-half turnaround propelled Cork into the semi-finals of the Electric Ireland Munster MHC as they saw off Limerick at Páirc Uí Rinn this evening.

At half-time, the visitors led by 1-9 to 1-6, and only a late Cork goal from Tim O’Mahony, followed by a point from captain Shane Kingston, the margin would have been greater. However, Cork rallied at half-time and scored the first five points of the second half to put themselves into a lead which they wouldn’t lose. Captain Kingston finished with 1-9, including the 45th-minute goal which made it 2-12 to 1-10, and from there they pushed on to victory.

In the first half, Limerick had been dominant. They were 0-4 to 0-1 ahead when Séamus Flanagan caught a Darragh Carroll sideline in the 11th minute and turned and shot to the net to put them firmly in control. While Kingston’s frees were keeping Cork from falling further behind, points from Barry Murphy, Flanagan and Casey were keeping the scoreboard active for Limerick and Flanagan’s free on 28 made it 1-9 to 0-5.

Incredibly, Cork would ‘win’ the remainder of the game by 2-15 to 0-4, Crowley’s goal – after Limerick goalkeeper Eoghan McNamara had denied Robbie O’Flynn – kick-starting the revival. Michael O’Halloran, Ciarán Cormack, sub John Looney and goalkeeper Declan Dalton all scored for Cork in the closing stages as they eased to a 10-point win. They could, however, face Limerick again, as the Treatymen clash with Waterford for a place in the semi-finals against the Rebels.
Scorers for Cork: S Kingston 1-9 (0-5 frees), T O’Mahony 1-3, M O’Halloran, J Looney, D Dalton (0-1 free, 0-1 65) 0-2 each, B Dunne, C Cormack 0-1 each.

Scorers for Limerick: S Flanagan 1-4 (0-4 frees), B Murphy 0-5, P Casey 0-2, W O’Meara 0-1.

CORK: D Dalton; S Smyth, D Griffin, N O’Leary; M Coleman, E Murphy, D Lowney; C O’Leary, D Fitzgibbon; T O’Mahony, R O’Flynn, S Kingston; B Dunne, C Cormack, M O’Halloran
Subs: D Gunning for O’Flynn (half-time), J Looney for Dunne (43).
