AIB Munster GAA Football Intermediate Club Championship Quarter Final – Mullinahone (Tipperary) 1-9 Mountcollins (Limerick) 0-9

Cronin goal fires Mullinahone to victory

Mullinahone 1-9 Mountcollins 0-9

By Conor Kane for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Monday, November 14, 2011

A WELL-CRAFTED goal midway through the second half from substitute Niall Cronin earned Mullinahone victory at Clonmel yesterday. Despite wind assistance in the first half, the Tipperary champions, who boasted a few All-Ireland senior hurling medallists in their ranks, looked off the pace and struggled against the short-passing game of Mountcollins. However, late scores from Mullinahone pair Seán Curran and Paul Kelly left it four points apiece at the break.

Mullinahone looked a more purposeful physical unit after the interval, however, and three unanswered points in the opening eight minutes gave them a lead they never relinquished. Their eighth point came from Eoin Kelly shortly after the 2010 All-Ireland captain’s introduction as substitute. A minute later Sean Curran found Cronin and the latter’s superb goal gave Mullinahone a five-point lead. Points from Tom and Mike McCarthy closed the gap but there was no denying the Tipperary men.

Scorers for Mullinahone: P Kelly 0-3, A Doheny 0-3 (0-2 frees), N Cronin 1-0, J Connelly 0-1, S Curran 0-1, E Kelly 0-1.

Scorers for Mountcollins: M McCarthy 0-3, T McCarthy 0-2 (0-1 free), P Delee 0-2 (0-1 free), S Gleeson 0-1, J O’Connell 0-1.

AIB Munster GAA Football Intermediate Club Championship Quarter Final – Miltown / Castlemaine (Kerry) 2-5 Clondegad (Clare) 0-10

MORIARTY LATE STRIKE DENY CLARE SIDE FAMOUS KERRY WIN

Monday, 14 November 2011 08:41

Munster Intermediate Club semi final

Milltown/Castlemaine Kerry) 2-5 Clondegad (Clare) 0-10

By Murt Murphy for kerrygaa.ie

MILLTOWN/CASTLEMAINE had to rely on a late strike from goal-scoring hero Cathal Moriarty to see off Clare side Clondegad in a Munster Club IFC quarter-final in Milltown, Co Kerry yesterday. Moriarty’s delightful goal when he danced his way free inside the Clondegad square with five minutes to go pushed Milltown/Castlemaine 2-5 to 0-9 ahead against a Clare side that was the better team on the day, with midfielder Gary Brennan and wing-back Kieran Browne two of their best players.

A tight first-half saw the sides level at the break, 1-4 to 0-7, with Moriarty scoring Milltown/Castlemaine’s goal when his point attempt ducked under the cross-bar but the Kerry champions needed a penalty save late in the opening half from goalkeeper Joe Daly, from Shane Brennan, to keep his side in the match. Clondegad then had a goal disallowed early in the second half, and as the game wore on, Milltown/Castlemaine brought both Ian Twiss and Derek Twiss off the bench and the duo had a hand in Moriarty’s late winning goal..

There is little doubt but that Milltown/Castlemaine can count themselves lucky to have escaped to victory here as Clondegad dominated for long stages, had a penalty saved in the 28th minute, and a goal disallowed early in the second half for a square ball infringement. Clondegad played with the strong wind in the opening half, and when Tony Kelly raced through in the opening minute, he could well have scored a goal, but a point was his reward. The home side were under the cosh for long periods of the half and in fact all their four points came from the boot of Gavin Wrenn, from placed balls. So Milltown/Castlemaine despite playing poorly and playing against the wind, they retired on level terms on 1-4 to 0-7 with Cathal Moriarty getting the goal. Milltown/Castlemaine team boss was loud in his praise of Moriarty afterwards

The third quarter saw Milltown/Castlemaine fail to score and in fact their first point from play did not come until the 46th minute from midfielder John O’Connor, who levelled the contest at 1-5 to 0-8 but it was tough going. Garry Brennan kept the Clare champions in front but then in the 55th minute came the crucial score and luckily it was for the Kerry side. A long free found substitute Derek Twiss who floated in a high ball that Cathal Moriarty pounced on Gooch like and twisting and turning, he finished clinically to the Clondegad net. The Clare side attacked late on looking for the equalizer but Milltown/Castlemaine held firm with Damien Murphy, Marcus Mangan and Paul Carroll holding firm and despite the heroics of the Brennan brothers at midfield, Clondegad just came up short.

Milltown/Castlemaine boss, Knocknagree native John Fintan Daly, was a relived man afterwards “What a great performance from Clondegad. They came here and probably deserved to win it. Cathal Moriarty is 19 years of age, he scores goals that other player can’t even see. His ability to get that goal out of nothing was absolutely fabulous. “We took off 4 players today and they were stars last week and this is the strength of our panel. After that game my neighbours in Cork, Newmarket will be favourites next week. We must go to them now and have it all to do”. Daly thought that “mental tiredness might have played its part but Clondegad boss Dermot Coughlan ” We gave it everything and we said coming down, we lost four players from the county final, but at the end of the day it is fifteen against fifteen. We had missed chances out there today and so had our opponents. The team that take their chances will always win.”

Moriarty toast of Milltown-Castlemaine

Milltown-Castlemaine 2-5 Clondegad 0-10

By Kieran McCarthy for the Irish Examiner newspaper

A goal from Cathal Moriarty inspired Milltown/Castlemaine to a narrow victory over Clare’s Clondegad in the Munster Club IFC quarter-final at Milltown yesterday. With just five minutes left, and Milltown-Castlemaine trailing 0-9 to 1-5, Moriarty weaved his way inside the Clondegad square before coolly finding the net to set-up a semi-final date with Newmarket next weekend. But Milltown/Castlemaine can consider themselves very lucky to have survived as they were second best for long stretches. Indeed, they needed 40-year-old keeper Joe Daly to save a first-half penalty from Shane Brennan while the Clare side also had a goal disallowed early in the second half.

As well as that, Cathal Moriarty’s 10th minute goal for Milltown/Castlemaine was highly fortuitous, his point attempt dipping under the crossbar to push them 1-1 to 0-3 ahead. With Gary Brennan lording midfield alongside his brother Shane, and with wing-back Kieran Browne driving on, Clondegad’s fast and direct style caused Milltown/Castlemaine a host of problems, and the Kerry side were lucky to be level at half-time, 1-4 to 0-7. With scores hard to come by in the second half, Clondegad led 0-9 to 1-5 with just five minutes left. But then came Moriarty’s matchwinning goal.

Scorers for Milltown/Castlemaine: C Moriarty 2-0, G Wrenn 0-4f, J O’Connor 0-1.

Clondegad: G Brennan 0-4f, P McMahon (2f, 1 45) 0-3, T Kelly, S Brennan, F Neylon 0-1 each.

DROMID PEARSES BATTLE BACK TO BEAT WEARY KANTURK IN EXTRA TIME

Munster Junior Club Football – semi final

Dromid Pearses 0-14 Kanturk 2-4 (After Extra Time)

By Murt Murphy for kerrygaa.ie

What sport can produce such drama, such tension and so much raw courage as we witnessed in this AIB Munster Junior Club Football semi-final, played at a gale lashed Waterville pitch, between Dromid Pearses and Kanturk, would take some beating. Cork champions Kanturk, who only won their county title on Friday night, looked to be showing no ill effects but their manager Padraig Kearns felt that they had let it slip ” We were three points up at half time and six points ahead early in the second half so we may well have gone to sleep. But we just were not able for extra time and considering the final is not on for two weeks, you would think that the game would go to a replay as we had only played on Friday so extra time proved a bridge too far, for our lads”

Dromid boss Michael A O’Connell, was delighted with the character shown by his side “This club has been cocooned in defeats and hard luck stories down the years and this self belief that we have in this squad of players is savage. We said it in the dressing rooms at half time, we had been six points down to Waterville in the South Kerry Championship a few weeks ago and came and again today we were six points down against Kenmare and we were also behind against Firies but we came back. We are a second half team. I knew even when they scored that second goal, and we replied with two quick points that we could comeback.”

On that final equalizing free in injury time of normal time “Would you believe I had Thomas Curran earmarked to take that free, but Declan turned to me and said he would take it. I knew by then by that steely look that he would put it over. We were out there in extra time and we were in a huddle and Declan, who blames himself for Kerry’s defeat against Dublin said look we promised we could win an All-Ireland with the club this year, so lets do it in extra time and the lads took inspiration from his words. He is a great leader and an exceptional player and Dromid/Pearses means everything to him. We needed him today and he delivered along with the rest of the lads because it was not easy out there”

But O’Connell issued a warning to Dromid Pearses “Jack O’Connor, the best manager in the country was in there now and I asked him to say a few words, and he told the lads basically that they should enjoy the night but then to get the heads right for the final- he reminded the lads that there is no silverware for heroic semi final wins, if they lose the big one. The week off will help, we will have field a second string team in the Co League against Currow this weekend, we have no choice but it will matter little because Waterville and Tarbert will do the business”

But Kanturk will be kicking themselves for letting this game slip as they led Kerry champions Dromid Pearses 2-4 to 0-6, with sixteen minutes left in this absorbing contest. Cork senior star Aidan Walsh was putting in a big shift at midfield and their fullback line inspired by John Healy, looked to have Dromid Pearses, well shackled as the gales got stronger. However Dromid Pearses inspired by Declan O’Sullivan suddenly sprung to life and incredibly Kanturk were not to score for the rest of the game, including twenty minutes of overtime.

It was doubtless a combination of outstanding and defiant play from Dromid for whom, Denis Shine O’Sullivan, Kevin O’Shea, Thomas Curran and inevitably Declan O’Sullivan shone when the need was greatest , allied to extra time being a bridge too far for the Cork side, less than forty eight hours after Friday nights exertions! A 24th minute goal from Anthony Nash after defensive error by Dromid saw Kanturk lead 1-3 to 0-3 at half time, in near impossible conditions. Three minutes into the second half the writing appeared to be on the wall for the South Kerry side, when Lorcan O’Neill’s cross was finished to net by Lorcan McLoughlin, and suddenly Kanturk were six clear.

However, Declan O’Sullivan responded in typical fashion by upping his game and points followed from Thomas Curran and O’Sullivan himself. But five wides were to prove costly for Kanturk in the third quarter as Declan O’Sullivan and John Brown swapped points and the visitors led 2-4 to 0-6 entering the final quarter. Then, three unanswered Dromid points , left the game in the balance as the clock ticked into injury time and when Declan O’Sullivan was fouled, he coolly converted a difficult free to force extra time.

Dromid Pearses elected to play with the gale in the first period, but it was Kanturk who attacked incessantly thanks to Aidan Walsh heroics, but they could not judge the elements and Seamus O’Sullivan edged Dromid in front. Then in the second period of overtime, Kanturk looked punch- drunk as Dromid Pearses completed a remarkable comeback, with points from Thomas Curran, Declan O’Sullivan and Niall O’Shea, and they will now face Kildangan (Tipperary) in the final in two weeks!

* Full marks to the Waterville club for doing a wonderful job in staging the game at short notice. Dan Fitzpatrick led the way with his team of stewards and they left no stone unturned while the two ladies in the kitchen played a blinder, making sure officials, Munster Council personnel and most important of all – the press were fed and watered!!

AIB Munster GAA Hurling Senior Club Championship Semi Final – Crusheen (Clare) 0-19 Carrigtwohill (Cork) 1-10

Crafty Crusheen call the shots

By Diarmuid O’Flynn for the Irish Examiner newspaper

EXPERIENCE, that was the major difference between these sides in Páirc Uí Chaoimh yesterday as Crusheen advanced to the Munster Club SHC final against Limerick champions Na Piarsaigh on Sunday week. Lack of experience on the part of Cork champions Carrigtwohill, who were blown away in a 10-minute blitz at the start of the second half, experience on the part of Clare kingpins Crusheen, who had suffered just that fate themselves last year in their first foray into the provincial championship. “It was like that for us last year,” reflected Crusheen manager Michael Browne. “We kind of lost concentration for a few minutes at the beginning of the second half (conceded 2-4 in five minutes against Kilmallock) and we got creeled. We were so determined (this year), and not just the management, but the lads themselves were just so focused on that at half-time, that they were not going to let that happen them again.”

At the end of a fairly even first half, Carrigtwohill led by two points (0-8 to 0-6), but given that the home side had played with the aid of a stiff breeze, it wasn’t much of a cushion. On a mild afternoon, slippery underfoot in places but largely good conditions, Carrig had created the greater number of chances but over-elaboration in attack cost them on several occasions (a failing that continued into the second half) and this, combined with a fine save by Crusheen keeper Donal Touhy from wing-forward Stephen Dineen in the 26th minute, kept the margin down. “There was quite a strong breeze there and to end up only two points behind wasn’t bad,” said Browne; “Having said that, if Carrigtwohill had taken all their chances it might have been different. But, at two points down we were actually praising our team for the real hard effort they had put in, in the first half.”

After the break, and with those bitter memories of last year driving them on, it was Crusheen taking charge and Carrigtwohill had no answer. Three points in four minutes, one each from Gearoid O’Donnell, free-taker Pat Vaughan and Patrick Meaney, was interrupted briefly with a point from Carrigtwohill’s Michael Fitzgerald (dangerous throughout), but that was all it was, brief interruption. Another three unanswered points in four minutes, then four more on the trot, and with only 12 minutes left on the clock, the game was out of sight for Carrig, 0-16 to 0-9 behind.

They kept fighting, and had a chance in the 42nd minute but Touhy had again come to Crusheen’s rescue, a close-range save from Fitzgerald, and full-back Cronan Dillon saved likewise from midfielder David O’Mahony in the 57th minute. Carrigtwohill did finally manage a goal, in the 60th minute, a combination from two of their best attackers, county star Niall McCarthy (three fine points in the hour) lobbing to Fitzgerald who finished with authority. Too little, however, and of course too late.

A good game overall, fine defence from both sides. The Carrig inside line was magnificent, Crusheen never even getting a sniff of Liam McCarthy’s goal, centre-back Noel Furlong also starring, but the Cian Dillon-led Crusheen defence was absolutely suffocating. And yet we also witnessed some outstanding points, McCarthy and Fitzgerald individually for Carrig, a succession of superb team points by Crusheen, former Clare star David Forde pulling the strings. “A good, hard, tough game,” reckoned Browne. “Obviously the opposition was very strong and we were concerned about what they’d do in the second half, but our backs were tremendous. I was a small bit critical of them at half-time, but there’s no criticism of them now.”

Scorers for Crusheen: P Vaughan 0-6 (0-5f, 1 ‘65’); P Meaney 0-3; D Forde 0-3; J Fitzgibbon 0-3; F Kennedy, G O’Grady, G O’Donnell, A Brigdale, 0-1 each.

Crusheen advance to first final

From the Irish Times newspaper

Crusheen 0-19 Carrigtwohill 1-10: AN EXCELLENT second-half performance propelled Crusheen into a first-ever Munster club hurling final at Páirc Uí Chaoimh yesterday afternoon. Trailing by 0-8 to 0-6 having played against the wind in the first period, the Clare champions outscored their opponents by 0-6 to 0-1 in the 10 minutes after the restart, and from there they always looked likelier to progress. While attackers Jamie Fitzgibbon, Patrick Meaney and David Forde were prominent in the turnaround, it was in defence that Crusheen had their real heroes. Time and again Carrig’ forwards found themselves bottled up.

Despite getting the game’s first two points, Crusheen soon found themselves behind as Carrig’ reeled off four points in quick succession, Niall McCarthy with the best of them in the 13th minute. Crusheen pulled level again, but Carrig’ once again pushed on – McCarthy, Stephen Dineen and Liam O’Sullivan on target. The early second-half exchanges proved key, Crusheen going 0-12 to 0-9 ahead after a brilliant effort from corner back Alan Brigdale, while Donal Tuohy denied Carrig’s Mickey Fitzgerald a goal with a brilliant save. Crusheen pushed on again, and while Fitzgerald cut the gap to four with a late goal, points by Crusheen’s Pat Vaughan and Gerard O’Grady sealed the win.

CRUSHEEN: D Tuohy; J Brigdale, Cronan Dillon, A Brigdale (0-1); C O’Doherty, Cian Dillon, Cathal Dillon; P Vaughan (0-6, five frees, one 65), J Meaney; G O’Donnell (0-1), J Fitzgibbon (0-3), D Forde (0-3); P Meaney (0-3), G O’Grady (0-1), F Kennedy (0-1). Subs: S Dillon for J Meaney (16-20 mins, blood), C O’Donnell for Kennedy (46 mins), A Meaney for Forde (56 mins).

Subs: A Gosnell for Foley (39 mins), S O’Farrell for Hogan (43 mins), S Kidney for Lordan (57 mins).

Na Piarsaigh torpedo the Gunners

By Michael Moynihan for the Irish Examiner newspaper

DRAMA in Walsh Park yesterday as visitors Na Piarsaigh of Limerick hammered three late goals past Waterford champions Ballygunner to book a place in the Munster club SHC final. Fresh from their first county title on Shannonside, Na Piarsaigh were outsiders and trailed by six points at half-time, but they overturned that deficit to win by six at the finish.

As might be expected, Ballygunner, with the wind in the first-half, adapted to their local venue better than the visitors, with early points from captain Shane O’Sullivan and JJ Hutchinson. Na Piarsaigh were relying on corner-forward Kevin Ryan to do their early scoring, and he chipped in with two fine points in reply. Na Piarsaigh’s main strike forward, Limerick senior star Kevin Downes, overcame a dose of flu to line out but was isolated for much of the first half, with Na Piarsaigh withdrawing Shane Dowling outfield. They struggled with their shooting into the breeze, however, as Ballygunner did in the second-half. On nine minutes, however, Pádraic Mahony hit a fine point from distance to signal a period of Ballygunnner supremacy: their half-backs began to dominate and Na Piarsaigh came under sustained pressure.

In the following ten minutes Mahony added two frees, and Shane O’Sullivan, JJ Hutchinson and Brian O’Sullivan pointed from play: the last point might have been a goal, with JJ Hutchinson heading through before losing the ball under pressure. Adrian Breen ended Na Piarsaigh’s drought with a 23rd-minute point, making it seven points to three. David O’Sullivan and Mahony (free) made it nine for Ballygunner before Shane Dowling added another point (from a free) for the visitors. Mahony, however, had the last word of the half with a fine free from his own 65 metre line – ten points to four at the break.

The first score of the second-half was always going to be crucial, with Pádraic Mahony doing the honours from a close-in free. By contrast, Na Piarsaigh hit three poor wides, but their hopes were raised by two monster Shane Dowling frees and one close-in effort, which cut the deficit to 0-11 to 0-7 at the three-quarter stage. The Gunners looked set to close the game out, but on 48 minutes it went into the melting-pot when an attempted clearance by ‘Gunners keeper Stephen O’Keeffe was blocked and fell to Dowling, who buried it: 1-7 to 0-11 and all to play for.

Two minutes later it happened again: Ballygunner tried to work the ball out but Kevin Ryan intercepted, made ground and then placed Dowling with a fine pass, and the corner-forward finished well from a narrowing angle, putting Na Piarsaigh two points ahead. Mahony and Pat Gleeson swapped points as the clock wound down, thus preserving the Limerick men’s two-point lead, and incredibly, Na Piarsaigh managed one more smash-and-grab raid. With two minutes left David Breen intercepted a Ballygunner handpass near the home side’s goal and had enough time to take two swipes at the sliotar before rattling the net for the Shannonsiders’ third goal.

Star defender Brian Hartnett’s injury-time point was the icing on the cake, pushing the winning margin to five. “I thought we gave an exhibition in the first half,” said Na Piarsaigh manager Sean Stack. “We took short puck-outs, we drew frees, but the conditions were terrible – we were lucky the sod was dry, but the gale made it a different game to a dry, calm day. If we’d been down nine points at half-time you could have overcome it, because with the wind puck-outs were going to the other 21-metre line. “The six-week break gave us a huge advantage – we celebrated well but then got back to work, and now we’re a totally different team to what we were in Limerick, but that’s typical of first-time champions.”

His opposite number, Niall O’Donnell of Ballygunner, had no excuses. “We didn’t underestimate Na Piarsaigh at all, we gave them all the respect that they deserved. We prepared thinking we’d have a right hard battle, and that’s how it went. “Look, they deserved it today. If you get three goals in a match you’ll rarely lose.”

Scorers for Ballygunner: P. Mahony 0-7 (0-5 fs, 0-1 65); S. O’Sullivan 0-2; B. O’Sullivan, JJ Hutchinson, D. O’Sullivan 0-1 each.

Scorers for Na Piarsaigh: S. Dowling 2-4 (0-4 fs); D. Breen 1-0; K. Ryan 0-2; A. Breen, P. Gleeson, B. Hartnett, 0-1.

Dowling the hero in late blitz

From the Irish Times newspaper

Na Piarsaigh 3-9 Ballygunner 0-12: BALLYGUNNER BECAME the latest side to fall to the curse of favouritism in this year’s Munster club championship when they fell to a Shane Dowling-inspired Na Piarsaigh of Limerick in Walsh Park yesterday. Ballygunner looked like the better team for long periods, but a three-goal burst in a 10-minute spell towards the end of the game helped edge Na Piarsaigh through.

Although Ballygunner had the stiff breeze to assist them in the opening period, it took them a while to get a grip on the game. They did manage a couple of excellent early points from Shane O’Sullivan and JJ Hutchinson, but two smashing efforts from Kevin Ryan kept Na Piarsaigh in touch. Towards the middle of the half, Ballygunner did open up a lead and with Pauric Mahony to the fore, they lead by 0-7 to 0-2 by the 18th minute. It did appear that the Waterford champions would need one goal to make the game safe, but with Kieran Bermingham and Kieran Breen defending stoutly, this was not forthcoming. Ballygunner led by six (0-10 to 0-4) at the break and opened the scoring in the second-half with another Mahony free, but struggled to make inroads thereafter.

Three scores in a row from Dowling brought Na Piarsaigh back into contention before the game’s turning point in the 47th minute. A mix-up in defence gifted a goal to Dowling, with Ballygunner protesting afterwards that goalkeeper O’Keeffe was fouled as he tried to get to a loose ball. Na Piarsaigh took the lead three minutes later when a searing run by Kevin Ryan set up Dowling for his second goal. Then, with three minutes remaining, another defensive howler presented a goal to David Breen to wrap up the win.

NA PIARSAIGH: P Kennedy; C King, K Breen, K Bermingham; A Dempsey, J O’Brien, B Hartnett (0-1); S Dowling (2-4, 0-4 frees), P Gleeson (0-1); K Kennedy, D Breen (1-0), S O’Neill; A Breen (0-1), K Downes, K Ryan (0-2). Subs: A Hennessy for A Breen.

BALLYGUNNER: S O’Keeffe; A Kirwan, W Kiely, B Coughlan; Philip Mahony, W Hutchinson, S Walsh; H Barnes, D O’Sullivan (0-1); Pauric Mahony (0-7, 0-5 frees, 0-1 65), S O’Sullivan (0-2), A Moloney; Brian O’Sullivan (0-1), JJ Hutchinson (0-1), S Power. Subs: Barry O’Sullivan for A Moloney.
