Odds and Ends

Dr. Crokes (Kerry) are looking to win three Munster Club Senior Football titles in a row. The only club to achieve this feat in the past was Nemo Rangers (Cork) who captured three titles in a row from 2000 to 2002, winning the All-Ireland Club title following their 2002 Munster success.

Ballinacourty’s victory over Dromcollogher-Broadford (Limerick) in the Quarter-Final snapped a three game losing streak for the Waterford champions in this competition dating back to 2010.

Since Kilmurry-Ibrickane (Clare) won the 2009 Munster Club Senior Football title, the Clare champions have failed to win a game in this competition over the last three seasons.

Kerry’s record in the Munster Club Senior Football Championship sees them with 15 titles compared to 27 titles for Cork clubs. Since 2000, Kerry have captured 4 Munster club titles. During Kerry’s Golden Years at Inter-County level, Kerry won just 3 of the 12 Munster Club Senior Football titles on offer (Austin Stacks – 1976 & Castleisland Desmonds 1984 and 1985).

Ballinacourty reached the 2007 Munster Club Football Final, losing out narrowly to Nemo Rangers (Cork) in the final at Fitzgerald Stadium Killarney on a scoreline of 1-10 to 1-7.

Since St. Patrick’s Day 1996, only 1 of the last 17 Munster Club Senior Football champions (6%) have won the All-Ireland Club Senior Football titles – Nemo Rangers in the 2002/2003 season. Prior to 1996, Munster Clubs captured 15 All-Ireland’s at this grade, an average of 60% dating back to 1971.

From 1964 to 1997, no club outside of Kerry or Cork won the Munster Club Senior Football title (Thomond College representing Limerick won the 1977 title). Since 1998, Kilmurry/Ibrickane (2), Doonbeg and Dromcollogher-Broadford have been successful in winning the Munster Club Senior Football titles.

AIB Munster GAA Hurling Intermediate Club Championship Final – Youghal (Cork) 2-13 Ballina (Tipperary) 2-10

Youghal find an extra edge in hour of glory

By Therese O’Callaghan for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Youghal are the Munster Club IHC champions following a titanic battle with Ballina at Mallow yesterday. A huge crowd witnessed an enthralling contest as both teams were reduced to 14 players in the second half, but Youghal held strong to become the first Cork team to receive IHC title since Ballymartle in 2010. Youghal clung on to a three-point advantage in the dying minutes as Ballina searched for the equalising goal.

The final whistle brought great scenes of celebration, and for top-scorer Brendan Ring (0-7), it was a day to savour after an incredible year. “You know we didn’t have the best of starts to the year,” he said. “We were beaten in the first round of the Cork championship but we rallied. You can see that here today. We are going about five years now trying to win a county and you can see how we got here. There are no heroes on this team. We’ve had so many disappointments before, losing semi-finals year after year but there is great credit to all the players and what they have put into it. “The county was our goal, but deep down, we thought we had a team good enough to win the Munster. You are going into the unknown [Munster] but we knew it would take a really good team to beat us. We got the goals at vital stages — we would have been beaten by those goals in the past and today we got them.”

Youghal made a statement early on when Ollie Dempsey finished to the net in the third minute after a brilliant save by Martin McKeogh from a Brendan Ring shot. Ballina answered back with points from Michael Breen and David Hickey but Youghal managed to keep their noses in front courtesy of two fantastic points from standout forward Brendan Ring. Wing forward Brian Stritch was causing problems at the other end which meant the Tipp side were never too far behind. And when his brother Stephen Stritch latched on to a perfect long delivery from Stephen O’Brien to fire past Richard Cunningham in the 18th minute, Ballina took the lead for the first time, 1-6 to 1-5. But Youghal moved quickly to curb their attacking play, switching Dempsey to wing back and introducing Andrew Curtin to full forward. In fact, Curtin had the sliotar in the net soon after but it was disallowed for a square infringement. As Ballina moved ahead by a point, Damien Ring crucially found the net for Youghal after combining with Curtin and this goal gave them a timely interval advantage, 2-6 to 1-7 — but they were also turning to play with the wind.

Points were exchanged before Ballina received a major blow with corner back Brian McKeogh receiving a second yellow card six minutes after the restart, which resulted in a reshuffle with centre-forward Michael Breen (later forced off injured) switching to defence while Barry Ring was the free player for Youghal. Bill Cooper and Curtin edged Youghal four points clear but Ballina were right back in the game when Domhnall McKeogh found the net with the final quarter to play. They trailed 2-8 to 2-9. Damien Ring struck a fine point from play before Ollie Dempsey received a straight red card with 10 minutes remaining. Crucially Brendan Ring converted a pair of frees to make it a four-point match. Barry Ring, John Grace and keeper Cunningham all made vital saves as Ballina were desperate for a goal. A Stephen O’Brien 65m cut the gap to three points but Youghal, not for the first, dug deep. They travel to Ruislip to play St Gabriel’s of London (All Ireland finalists 2012/2013) in the All-Ireland quarter-final next month.

Scorers for Youghal: Brendan Ring (0-7, 4fs), D Ring (1-1), O Dempsey (1-0), B Cooper (0-2), J O’Mahony, L Desmond and A Curtin (0-1 each).

Scorers for Ballina: S Stritch (1-1), M Breen (0-4, 3fs, 1 65), D McKeogh (1-0), S O’Brien (0-2, 1 65), D Hickey, B Stritch and TJ O’Connell (0-1 each).

The key moment

After Youghal’s great start, Damien Ring’s goal moments before the break yielded a two-point lead at half-time against the wind.

Pub talk

First time visitors to the Mallow GAA complex were in awe of the fabulous facilities.

The main man

Brendan Ring was a thorn in Ballina’s side throughout, supplying seven points.

The man in black

Shane Hourigan’s job was made easy by two sporting teams. He consulted with his umpires before disallowing Andrew Curtin’s goal in the first half.

AIB Munster GAA Hurling Senior Club Championship Semi Final – Sixmilebridge (Clare) 1-17 Midleton (Cork) 1-13

Sixmilebridge (Clare) defeated Midleton (Cork) by 1-17 to 1-13 in the AIB Munster GAA Hurling Senior Club Championship on Sunday November 17th at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

Game plan works to perfection for slick Sixmilebridge

Report from the Irish Examiner newspaper

Sixmilebridge (Clare) 1-17 Midleton (Cork) 1-13

A near-perfect day for hurling at Páirc Uí Chaoimh yesterday for this Munster SHC semi-final, and a near-perfect game plan by Sixmilebridge. The Clare champions came to Cork and did what no team in the Rebel county had been able to do in the concluding stages of their championship — put the shackles on the ever-dangerous Conor Lehane. Ever-dangerous? Why yes; having averaged 2-8 in his last three championship games, though tightly-marked here by the giant Páidí Fitzpatrick, Conor managed only 1-6 against the Bridge, 1-1 from play, but that could easily have been 2-6, his shot from close range in the 50th minute skinning the outside of the post and ending up in the side netting.

Another part of the Sixmilebridge game plan saw captain Alan Quilligan delegated to take care of the other Midleton danger man, Luke O’Farrell; again it worked, Luke limited to just a point by the equally sticky Aidan. Main man responsible for that plan? Manager John O’Meara. “Conor is a top-class inter-county player and we had to give him due respect. He got 2-10 in the Cork final, we met last night and decided there was no way we could let that happen against us. We felt if we could hold him to maybe 1-5 or something like that we’d be happy enough but I thought Páidí was outstanding on him, as was Aidan Quilligan on Luke O’Farrell inside. In fact we’re delighted with the way everyone in our backline played, and the lads at the other end were able to get enough to get us over the line.”

From early on it was obvious that this was going to be a very different kind of game to the Cork final at the same venue a couple of weeks ago. Gone was the openness, gone was the free rein to Lehane to roam the plains and score almost at will. Instead it was a mano-a-mano dogfight, trench warfare, the sides on just a point apiece after the first quarter (though Midleton already had five wides). No accident either — this was exactly what John O’Meara and Sixmilebridge had in mind as they headed for Cork. “A lot of the media and bookies had us as huge underdogs, didn’t give us much of a chance but we felt we were in with a right shot. After seeing the Cork county final I thought our own final against Newmarket-on-Fergus was a lot more intense; I knew if we brought that level of intensity to Cork we’d have a great chance.”

This isn’t to say that Sixmilebridge had it all their own way. Had Midleton not been so profligate in that opening half (eight wides), had Lehane’s 50th minute shot been on the other side of the post, who knows? Those are the what-ifs, however; the facts are Sixmilebridge went on to then dominate the rest of the first half, should have been much more than a point ahead at the break (1-7 to 1-6). Their goal had come in the 18th minute, centre-forward Alan Mulready the recipient of a long, visionary pass from outstanding midfielder Jamie Shanahan, beating his man and finishing clinically. Sixmilebridge also had points in this half from centre-back Caimin Morey (another stellar performance), Mulready himself, Pa Sheehan, Shane Golden, Kevin Lynch and full-forward Niall Gilligan (two) and with just two minutes left in the half, were comfortably in control, 1-7 to 0-5. Two big scores from Lehane, however, first a goal swatted home after his 20m free was saved, then a pointed free after Brian Hartnett had been fouled, and it was back to the minimum at the break.

“Disappointing, giving up 1-1 in the final few minutes of the half,” said John. “We felt we had the better hurling done, said we’d go out in the second half and give it a right lash. Some of the subs we brought on played very well, and we managed to get some scores at crucial times. In general I think everyone upped their game a few notches in the second half.” That they did and in this half Sixmilebridge made no mistake. Ten points to seven they outscored Midleton, many of those points scored in almost instant reply to Midleton at the other end, lack of concentration around the middle third costing the Cork champions dearly. Indiscipline was also costing the Magpies in this half, Jamie Shanahan taking over the free-taking duties from Gilligan (restricted by injury but continued to perform well in open play, made two points for Pa Sheehan) and doing so impeccably, four from four.

All in all then a fair result, the better team progressing to a Munster final meeting with 2011 champions Na Piarsaigh next Sunday, meaning another busy week of planning for O’Meara and his merry men. “We’re absolutely thrilled to be there especially considering where we came from, losing the first round of the Clare championship back in early May. Na Piarsaigh are our neighbours, only in the road. We played them in friendlies earlier on in the year, we won one each but that won’t count for anything. They’re probably on a different mission to us, Munster champions a couple of years ago but beaten by eventual All-Ireland champions Loughgiel Shamrocks in the semi-final after extra-time. They probably feel there’s an All-Ireland club title in them but we’re going to give it a hell of a lash — a great, great way to end a super year for Clare hurling.”

Scorers for Sixmilebridge: J Shanahan 0-5 (three frees, one 65); A Mulready 1-1; P Sheehan 0-3; N Gilligan 0-3 (two frees); S Morey, S Golden, C Morey, K Lynch, C Deasy, 0-1 each.

Scorers for Midleton: C Lehane 1-5 (three frees, one 65); P Haughney 0-2; A Ryan 0-2; P Dowling, L O’Farrell, C Walsh, T Wallace (free), 0-1 each.

Sixmilebridge subs: S O’Sullivan for Lynch (inj. 34); C Deasy for R Shanahan (54); D Morey for Sheehan (58); B Corry for Mulready (60+2).

Midleton subs: D Ryan for O’Shea (inj. 20); P O’Keeffe for Walsh (60).

Referee: J Ryan (Tipperary).

The key moment

50th minute, Sixmilebridge leading 1-14 to 1-11, Conor Lehane’s shot hits the net but it’s the side netting. If Midleton had got parity at that stage, who knows?

Pub talk

The year Clare are having and the superiority they now enjoy over Cork at both county and club level.

Haven’t seen that before

Sixmilebridge beating Midleton in the Munster championship, avenging the loss of 1983.

The main man

Several contenders from the Bridge, including evergreen Niall Gilligan and Caimin Morey but we’ll go for midfielder Jamie Shanahan.

The man in black

Johnny Ryan (Tipperary) didn’t win a lot of friends in Midleton in the second half but overall, did well.

Midleton (Cork) and Sixmilebridge (Clare) have only met once in the Munster Club Senior Hurling Championship which resulted in a 2-14 to 0-15 semi-final victory for Midleton in 1983 played at Midleton. On that occasion, a tally of 2-2 from Midleton’s Colm O’Neill proved decisive.

From 2010 through 2013, the travelling team has won 9 of the 11 matches played in the Munster Club Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Finals and Semi-Finals. The victory for Na Piarsaigh (Limerick) over Passage (Waterford) in the 2013 Semi-Final and the win of Thurles Sarsfields (Tipperary) over Sarsfields (Cork) at Semple Stadium in the 2012 Semi-Finals are the only exceptions in the past 4 seasons.

The Munster Club Senior Hurling Championship is very competitive with only one score separating the champions and runner-up in each final from 2004 through 2011 (drawn match). Thurles Sarsfields (Tipperary) won the 2012 final versus De La Salle (Waterford) by five points.

This will be the 21st match for Sixmilebridge in the Munster Club Senior Hurling Championship. Their record to date is Won 13, Lost 6, Drawn 1 with Munster club titles secured in 1984, 1995 and 2000. Midleton have played 14 matches in the competition with a record of Won 8, Lost 3, Drawn 3, winning the Munster club title in 1983 and 1987.

AIB Munster GAA Football Intermediate Club Championship Semi Final – Clyda Rovers (Cork) 0-15 Ballyporeen (Tipperary) 1-4

A cruise for Clyda as they power into final

Clyda Rovers (Cork) 0-15 Ballyporeen (Tipperary) 1-4

By Conor Kane for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Despite a shake in the second half against the comeback specialists, Clyda Rovers’ place in the Munster IFC final was rarely in doubt yesterday in Clonmel. Building from a foundation of general dominance around midfield, Clyda used their short passing to good effect and enjoyed long passages of possession. The presence of 10 separate names on the scoresheet is testament to the hard graft and teamwork which has become a hallmark of the Cork intermediate champions and they were good value for the eight-point gap at the end.

Ballyporeen had previously bridged a nine-point deficit in the previous round before downing De La Salle in a replay but they never looked like getting back on terms with Clyda this time around. Their main threat, Conor Sweeney, was subdued in the middle in the first half and while he upped the tempo after the break and finished with 1-3, it wasn’t enough. Rovers raced to a 0-7 to 0-0 lead inside 22 minutes and the teams were never closer than five points for the rest of the game.

Daniel O’Callaghan dominated midfield, often breaking the ball to the half-forwards who were able to keep attacks going with hand passing before releasing the inside forwards or whoever happened to be pressing forward, to finish off their chances. Ballyporeen’s sole first half response was a Shane Molan point while Conor Sweeney hit the woodwork with his best chance. After the break, Rovers had 10 points on the board before Sweeney converted a penalty to give Ballyporeen some hope but after a Eoin Kearney disallowed “goal”, those hopes faded. Clyda finished strongest with closing points by Paudie Kissane and Colin Ronayne for insurance.

Scorers for Clyda Rovers: J Murphy (0-4, 2fs), Conor O’Sullivan, Cian O’Sullivan (0-2 each), S Ronayne, D O’Callaghan, C Flanagan, P Kissane, C Ronayne, C Buckley, F O’Shea (0-1 each).

Scorers for Ballyporeen: C Sweeney (1-3, 1pen, 2fs), S Molan (0-1).

CLYDA ROVERS: C Conway; N O’Mullane, R Carey, C Kenny; C Buckley, F O’Shea, S Ronayne; D O’Callaghan, C Flanagan; Conor O’Sullivan, P Kissane, G Carey; J Murphy, J O’Hanlon, Cian O’Sullivan. Subs: P Mullane for J O’Hanlon, S O’Connell for G Carey, D Roche for C Flanagan, C Ronayne for J Murphy, R Willis for S Ronayne.
