AIB Munster GAA Football Intermediate Club Championship Quarter-Final – St. Vincent’s (Cork) 1-12 Moycarkey-Borris (Tipperary) 0-6

Ricken content as proud St Vincent’s advance to semi-final

By Jim O’Sullivan for the Irish Examiner newspaper

St Vincent’s (Cork) 1-12 Moycarkey-Borris (Tipperary) 0-06

St Vincent’s secured the first win by a Cork team in the Munster Club IFC championship in five years at Páirc Uí Rinn on Saturday and set up another home tie in next week’s provincial semi-final against Clare champions O’Curry’s. As well as the satisfaction gained in following up their county final victory, there was the added bonus of atoning for the defeat by Mullinahone in their last appearance in 2006. Coach Keith Ricken pointed out that after three hard games in as many weeks, they didn’t do themselves justice six years ago. “This year is slightly different. This is our sixth game in the championship and they have been spread out, with the exception of last Sunday. There is a pride and an honour representing your county and the lads are very much into that.”

Even before half-time, the outcome looked almost inevitable. Without really matching the standard of their county final display, they looked superior, as Moycarkey coach Pat Flanagan acknowledged. Competing in the grade for just two years, he said: “Having seen St Vincent’s last week, we knew they were good. We gave it the best shot we could, but were beaten by a better team.” With Christopher Kenneally a late replacement for Kyle Lynch and fitting in well at corner-back, St Vincent’s made the better start, going two points clear before goalkeeper Paddy O’Shea made an excellent save from Phil Kelly in the fourth minute. At their best, when they moved the ball with purpose and precision, they looked in a different class, however they wasted good possession time and again.

Moycarkey experienced bigger problems in their attack. They trailed 0-8 to 0-3 at the break and in another 10 minutes the game was as good as over as a contest. Cian Barry got the only goal and Moycarkey defender John Kelly was dismissed for knocking him after he scored. Ricken accepts the need for improvement. “There were certainly cobwebs there after the county final.”

Scorers for St. Vincent’s: C. Barry 1-2; J. Buckley (1f) and D. O’Connor 0-3 each; T. O’Connell 0-2; A. Harte and A. Buckley (f) 0-1 each.

AIB Munster GAA Hurling Intermediate Club Championship Quarter-Final Replay – Ballybrown (Limerick) 3-10 Ballinhassig (Cork) 2-7

Battling Ballybrown never in danger

By Brendan Buckley for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Ballybrown (Limerick) 3-10 Ballinhassig (Cork) 2-7

A power-packed first half propelled Ballybrown to the Munster club IHC semi-finals. In this replay in Kilmallock, Ballybrown laid the foundations for victory when building up a 2-7 to 0-5 half-time lead — against the wind. Despite second half goals from 21metre frees from goalkeeper Martin Coleman, the Cork champions never forced their way back into serious contention.

Indeed they managed just four points from play in the hour’s hurling and registered 11 wides. By comparison Ballybrown had no such difficulty in front of goals. Freetaker Alan O’Connor ended with 0-12 in the drawn game and this time round landed 1-7. It was a 7th minute goal from Limerick minor player Bryan Griffin that set the Limerick champions on their way. Kyle Loftus and Lee Doolan added points and along with O’Connor frees they were 1-6 to 0-4 ahead midway through the first half with Fintan O’Leary notched three from play for Ballinhassig. The killer blow for Ballinhassig came in first half injury-time when O’Connor blasted a penalty high to the net after tricky corner-forward Michael Kiely was upended.

Ballinhassig got a tonic start to the second half when Coleman came up field to blast a free to the net. But James Hall and O’Connor (frees) maintained the Ballybrown lead that was soon 2-10 to 1-6. Coleman’s second goal left just it 2-10 to 2-7 with 13 minutes to play, but Ballinhassig weren’t to score from play in the second half and crucially failed to build upon Coleman’s second goal and reduce the deficit beyond a goal. Sub David Hall scored the third Ballybrown goal in the 59th minute to seal the victory and set up a clash with Kerry champions Ballyduff.

Scores for Ballybrown: A O’Connor 1-7 (0-5f, ’65 1-0pen), B Griffin, D Hall 1-0each, K Loftud, L Doolan, J Hall 0-1 each.

Scores for Ballinhassig: M Coleman 2-0 (2f), F O’Leary 0-4 (1f), D Dineen 0-3 (2f).

Munster Senior Camogie Club Final – Milford (Cork) 1-7 Duharra (Tipperary) 0-6

Mighty Milford turn on the style to rule Munster

By Rose Mannion for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Milford (Cork) 1-07 Burgess/Duharra (Tipperary) 0-06

Milford were crowned Munster senior camogie champions for the first time at Lattin Cullen on Saturday. The Cork champions, hugely impressive in their county final win over St Catherine’s, were too powerful for their hosts in a game which struggled to come to life in difficult conditions. Milford, thanks to a Marie Watson goal, led 1-4 to 0-3 at half-time while her sister Emer added four points for the winners. Tara Kennedy and captain Trish O’Halloran were best for the losers but had no answer to the Milford challenge led by the Watsons, Anna Geary, Elaine O’Riordan, Maria Walsh and the impressive Deirdre O’Reilly.

Scorers for Milford: M. Watson 1-1, E Watson 0-4f, M O’Neill, R Curtain 0-1 each.
