Munster Club SHC quarter-final: Na Piarsaigh (Limerick) 3-11 Sixmilebridge (Clare) 1-15

Report from

Kevin Downes inspired a magnificent second-half comeback for Limerick champions Na Piarsaigh as they overcame Sixmilebridge for the second time in the three years in the Munster SHC quarter-final.

In 2013 they hammered their Clare counterparts 4-14 to 0-8 to pick up their second Munster crown in the three years. This was a much tighter affair in the quarter-final though at O’Garney Park in Sixmilebridge.

With the wind at their backs, the hosts raced into a 1-12 to 1-3 half-time lead, even though Adrian Breen goaled early for Na Piarsaigh. But Cathal Malone’s goal after 20 minutes settled Sixmilebridge.

They dominated the rest of the half, but after the interval Na Piarsaigh took off, led by Downes, who found the net first off, and then relayed to Peter Casey who blasted their third of the afternoon. The 1996 All-Ireland champions were in shock, and a Ronan Lynch free from inside his own-half drew the sides level after 51 minutes, before Na Piarsaigh pushed on for victory, having to survive a Niall Gilligan free that hit the crossbar in the final minute.

Scorers for Na Piarsaigh: A Breen 1-2, S Dowling 0-5 (0-3f, 0-1 ’65); K Downes 1-1; P Casey 1-0; R Lynch 0-1 (0-1f); D Dempsey & K Ryan 0-1 each.

Scorers for Sixmilebridge: N Gilligan 0-7 (0-5f); C Malone 1-1; B Corry & A Morey 0-2 each; C Deasy, B Carey & S Golden 0-1 each.

Munster GAA Chairman, Robert Frost, calls on GAA clubs to support the fight against rural crime

Munster GAA Chairman, Robert Frost, has called on GAA clubs in the province to support the fight against rural crime.

Speaking at a meeting of the Munster Council on Thursday night, Robert Frost expressed his growing concern at the huge increase in rural crime and the fear that now existed in rural communities.

He said “I believe that the GAA, as the country’s leading community based organisation, can play an important role in the fight against this crime wave. I would ask GAA clubs in rural areas to do whatever is possible to increase vigilance in their areas, to become involved in community meetings with the Gardaí and to ensure people living alone or in isolated areas are contacted regularly. Many of the victims of these crimes are active in the GAA and support for these people from the GAA is vitally important. Many of our members and supporters share my concern and I believe that if clubs come together they will be able to make a difference in ensuring that people in our rural areas can live without constant fear of robbery”.
