Hurley the hero for Cork

Cork 1-8 Kerry 1-7

By Fintan O’Toole for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Monday, July 05, 2010

A touch of scoring class from Cork corner-forward Brian Hurley was the crucial intervention in deciding yesterday’s ESB Munster MFC final in Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney. With three minutes left, Cork were looking devoid of inspiration when captain Daniel Fitzgerald, who made his first appearance of an injury- plagued season as a second-half substitute, gathered a high ball and did brilliantly to offload to Hurley. The Castlehaven player initially feinted to fire a drive from a tight angle but after seeing Kerry netminder Pádraic McCarthy dive, Hurley produced a delightful chip with his left foot and the ball dropped to the net.

It was a sublime strike which finally settle a largely mundane encounter. Cork soaked up a barrage of late attacks from their opponents and while Kerry had grounds for complaint with referee Keith O’Brien’s decision to award a free out for over-carrying as substitute Tadhg Morley burst forward, it was Cork who kept their nerve. “A great way to win it,” remarked Cork manager Brian Cuthbert after the dramatic conclusion. “We got the break and Brian Hurley’s finish was unbelievable. Our defence was very good as well and I think Damian Cahalane is going to make a name for himself in the future. He did a great job today and we’ll look forward to facing Armagh or Tyrone.”

The match winner Hurley, who supplied a hefty 1-6 out of Cork’s overall 1-8 total, attributed the plaudits elsewhere after the game. “Daniel Fitzgerald, who’s a great captain, got free off his man, I peeled off mine and got it off him. I dinked it and luckily it went into the back of the net. But it’s not my perform- ance, the whole team worked hard to beat Kerry today.” It was fitting that Hurley should fire the match-winning strike as he had shouldered the scoring burden for Cork for long stretches.

Cork faced into a first-half wind that ruled out clean shooting, yet Hurley’s freetaking was still spot on and in the second-half he scored some terrific points. The Castlehaven influence on Cork’s victory extended beyond Hurley as Cahalane was in marvellous form at full-back. Brian Cuthbert’s decision to pull Cahalane back to a defensive role reaped a massive dividend as he stymied the threat of Gavin O’Grady, who had torn Limerick to shreds at the semi-final stage. Elsewhere Cork overcame an opening-half of anxiety to improve in the second-half with Tomás Clancy resolute in defence, Jamie Burns strong at midfield and Kevin Hallissey impressing in attack.

The loss of Glenbeigh/Glencar defender Pa Kilkenny after only six minutes to injury was a serious blow to Kerry. Robbed of their best man-marker, Kerry were unable to halt the scoring charge of Hurley. They also endured difficulties at midfield early on where Burns and John O’Rourke established a foothold but Cork lacked the guile and direction to forge ahead on the scoreboard in the first-half. The scoring was limited in the opening 30 minutes with Kerry just edging ahead 0-4 to 0-3, with Eanna O’Connor the star of the show from open play and placed ball. Captain James Walsh fired over a stunning shot from distance before the break and Kerry started the second-half in a commanding fashion.

They seemed to have taken a real grip on the game when Mark Reen burrowed through to slip a shot to the net in the 38th minute but Cork fought back and only trailed 1-6 to 0-8 with seven minutes left. Then came a vital incident when Cork goalkeeper David Hanrahan denied O’Connor a goal from point-blank range and from the rebound Kerry had a goal disallowed after it was adjudged that Morley had stepped out over the endline in possession. The miss proved costly when Hurley pounced for the late goal that consigned Kerry to defeat yet manager Pat O’Driscoll vowed they would revive their challenge for the All-Ireland series. “It’s a tough way to lose at the finish as I thought we’d hold out, since we were defending well. It was always going to be very close but I felt the referee made a few terrible decisions against us towards the end. But look there’s another day there and these lads aren’t finished yet.”

Scorers for Cork: B Hurley 1-6 (0-4f), K Sheehan (1f), K Hallissey 0-1 each.

Scorers for Kerry: M Reen 1-1, E O’Connor 0-4 (0-2f), G O’Grady, J Walsh 0-1 each.

Hurley stuns Kingdom with late strike to snatch glory for Rebels

Cork 1-8 Kerry 1-7

Munster Mfc Final

From the Irish Independent web site

Monday July 05 2010

A 58th-minute goal from brilliant corner-forward Brian Hurley was enough to snatch victory for Cork minors over champions Kerry at a windswept Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney, yesterday. It was a fortunate goal but the finish was sublime by man-of-the-match Hurley, who finished with a personal haul of 1-6 as Cork reclaimed the title for the first time since 2007. It was a game that Cork just about deserved to win based on their first-half display, but Kerry fought back well against the wind and once Mark Reen hit a goal and a point in the opening 10 minutes of the second half, they moved four points clear and looked likely winners. However, Cork had the physical edge and with John O’Rourke, Jamie Burns and substitute Danny Fitzgerald refusing to wilt, they had Kerry on the back foot. Cork had exploded from the blocks in the opening half despite playing against a stiff wind and they should really have had Kerry on the canvas, but their first-half tally of eight wides tells the tale as the Kingdom went in 0-4 to 0-3 ahead at half-time.

Kerry had received an early body blow when they lost their best defender, corner-back Pa Kilkenny, to injury in the sixth minute and as a result Hurley tormented the Kerry rearguard. The game swung on a 54th-minute incident when Kerry had a Gavin O’Grady goal disallowed after it was deemed that Thomas Morley had stepped over the end line in giving the final pass. This gave Cork hope and, trailing by two points, Danny Fitzgerald gained possession close to the Kerry goal and passed to Hurley, who dinked the ball into the Kerry net to give his side victory by a single point.

Scorers — Cork: B Hurley 1-6 ( 0-4f), K Sheehan (0-1f), K Hallissey 0-1each Kerry: E O’Connor 0-4 ( 0-2f), M Reen 1-1, J Walsh, G O’Grady 0-1 each.

Kerry’s 73rd title leaves Limerick in despair again

Kerry 1-17 Limerick 1-14

By Brendan O’Brien for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Monday, July 05, 2010

TO Kerry the spoils, to Limerick the admiration. And neither will be all that happy with their lot. Limerick? What is there to say? Little that hasn’t been said before. Once again, they came within an ace of claiming that elusive first provincial title since the 19th century. Once again, they found themselves coming up agonisingly short. Kerry’s 73rd Munster title means a fourth defeat in the decider for Limerick in eight years. Cruel. It appears that they are to be the Sisyphus of Gaelic football, doomed to roll the rock of history to which they are chained to the crest of the hill and only to be sent stumbling back down from whence they came. The question after this latest thwarted summit attempt is whether men like John Galvin, Stephen Lucey and Mark O’Riordan can summon the desire and determination to put their shoulders to the wheel one more time.

Bryan Sheehan implored them to “keep the heads high” in his victory speech but it will be of little consolation to any of the vanquished visitors that they exposed familiar fault lines in Kerry’s façade despite the defeat. Jack O’Connor’s side saw out the fag end of this contest with both of their starting midfielders looking on from the stands and with Tom O’Sullivan and Sheehan alongside them. All four had endured fitful afternoons. O’Sullivan had been cleaned by Ger Collins who hit four points from play while Sheehan was held scoreless from play, but it was the need to call both Seamus Scanlon and Anthony Maher ashore that will cause most concern.

With Paul Galvin absent, it fell to substitute Mícheál Quirke to drag the Kingdom to something approaching parity in the engine room and he did an excellent job of it. By the day’s end, Kerry had claimed 48% of the kick-outs. Quirke’s wasn’t the only cameo to give O’Connor food for thought. Barry John Keane, David Moran and Kieran O’Leary all contributed richly to scoring moves in the final quarter when the game was on the line. Kerry may well be in an All-Ireland quarter-final but they have got that far without knowing exactly what their best 15 is. Not an ideal scenario but how Limerick would love such conundrums.

Mickey Ned O’Sullivan’s men travelled to Killarney as 11/2 outsiders and yet they must have left loaded down with regrets. Not as many as last year when they somehow lost this decider to Cork, but far too many nonetheless. Regrets like the 13 wides they registered, almost half of them for balls that dribbled harmlessly over the end line. Regrets like the 20-minute period they endured in the middle third without a single point. Kerry landed 1-9 in that same spell, turning a five-point deficit into a seven-point lead and here was the game in microcosm. When Limerick held the whip hand they wasted the opportunity. When Kerry had it, they made hay.

Declan O’Sullivan landed three sublime points, Mike McCarthy raided upfield for another and Colm Cooper chipped in with a 50th minute goal courtesy of a quick pass off the ground from Donncha Walsh. 1-7 of that total had come after the break when Kerry had the stiffest of winds at their backs and it was all too apparent even then that Limerick’s failure to erect a bigger buffer in the first-half would cost them dearly. They had started so well, rattling off the game’s first four points before Kerry found their feet but find their feet they did. Their ability to adapt to the elements was remarkable and they ended the half without a wide to their name.

There was no panic, just a realisation that they needed to reach the dressing room with the deficit at manageable levels, unlike Galway in Pearse Stadium eight days earlier when they trailed Sligo by nine points at the interval. With 20 minutes to go, it seemed as though their day’s work was done. Stephen Lucey had done a credible job in handling Kieran Donaghy but Cooper still turned over a profit despite the restricted supply line. His goal was evidence of that.

Cooper ended the game with 1-2 from play but so too did John Galvin and it was the latter’s dispossession of Scanlon from a short kick-out and shot to the net past Brendan Kealy three minutes later that reignited the contest. Limerick had somehow drawn level when the Croom midfielder landed his last score of the afternoon six minutes later and a game that was in Kerry’s pocket was now floating in the wind and up for grabs. Limerick had the chances but they failed to tie it down. Goalkeeper Brian Scanlon had landed two long-range frees in the first period but two ill-advised long-distance efforts on the posts after Galvin’s equaliser emptied the wind from their sails.

Nine minutes ticked by without another score before Cooper broke the deadlock. Two more points from Moran and Tomas O Sé wrapped up the changes on the scoreboard but the drama spilled into injury-time. It ended with all hands to the pump for the home side, with nine men stood watch on their own goal line and Marc O Sé making a double block from Stephen Lavin’s last, desperate throw of the dice from a free. Not the most convincing of victories but, then again, Kerry survived similar late sieges against Longford and Sligo last summer and look how that turned out.

Kerry pip Limerick to reclaim Munster title

From the GAA.ie web site

Sunday, July 04, 2010

All-Ireland champions Kerry have won their first Munster GAA Football Senior Championship title since 2007 after they withstood a second-half comeback by Limerick to win by 1-17 to 1-14 at Fitzgerald Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Having trailed by 0-10 to 0-7 at half-time, Jack O’Connor’s side then reeled off 1-7 without reply in the first 15 minutes of the second half and looked to be cruising to victory only for a John Galvin-inspired Limerick to level the game with 11 minutes remaining. Ultimately though, Kerry had enough to get past their opponents, with late points from Colm Cooper, David Moran and Tomás Ó Sé seeing them home.

The victory was far from straightforward, however. Playing with the wind in the first half, Limerick seared into a 0-4 to nil lead inside the first four minutes and dominated midfield for much of the opening period. In addition, Stephen Lucey was totally nullifying Kieran Donaghy and Stephen Kelly was hugely industrious while the Kerry forwards struggled to get motoring. It was not until the introduction of Micheál Quirke shortly before half-time that Kerry began to get a handle in the middle and the Kerins O’Rahilly’s man won a number of clean kickouts as the momentum turned after the break. Prior to him coming in though, Seamus Scanlon and Anthony Maher were struggling as James O’Donovan and John Galvin combined well. It was Galvin who opened the scoring with a fisted point inside 20 seconds, and when Ger Collins added three more, the prospects of an upset were increasing.

Kerry rallied though and by the 13th minute had cut the deficit to just a point, 0-5 to 0-4, following Bryan Sheehan’s free. Credit to Limerick, however, as three in a row, including two frees from the 45m line by goalkeeper Brian Scanlon, extended their advantage again with 13 minutes left until the break. If they were to have any chance of winning, then the consensus was that, given the strength of the wind, they would need to have a cushion at the interval, and some bad wides were hampering those chances. In contrast, Kerry did not have a single wide in the first half, and though Limerick captain Seanie Buckley’s super individual score made it 0-10 to 0-5 two minutes before the whistle, Mike McCarthy and Colm Cooper ensured there were only three points between the sides as they retired to the dressing rooms.

When the teams re-emerged, there was no doubt that the momentum had shifted. Cooper (two) and Quirke had them level by the 41st minute while Donaghy, relocated to full-forward after spending the latter part of the first half at midfield, went close with a half-chance of a goal. Limerick were struggling to take what few chances they were getting while Declan O’Sullivan hit a purple patch, kicking three points which, allied to McCarthy’s second, meant that it was 0-14 to 0-10 by the 48th minute and when Cooper, set up nicely by Donncha Walsh, goaled soon after, a procession to the end looked to be in the offing. Ger Collins ended Limerick’s drought immediately though and then Galvin got them back in the match, dispossessing Scanlon after Brendan Kealy’s short kick-out and firing home to make it 1-14 to 1-11.

James Ryan, Collins and Galvin then all found their range and with the final 10 minutes approaching, it was anybody’s game. Unfortunately for Limerick though the lead score would not come, Scanlon shooting wide after coming up to take a free and a 45, and when Cooper pointed on 68, it settled Kerry. Eventually they managed to see out the game, Limerick unable to find a late equalising goal as Stephen Lavin’s 13m free was blocked, but the champions will certainly know that they were in a game. For Limerick, it is yet another chapter in their story of footballing heartache, but there will be few teams who will want to meet them in the Qualifiers.
