Electric Ireland Munster MHC Q-Final – Cork 5-26 Kerry 0-9

Cork defeated Kerry by 5-26 to 0-9 in the Electric Ireland Munster GAA Hurling Minor Championship Quarter-Final on Wednesday April 9th at Pairc Ui Rinn.

Cork power on but serious tests await

By Therese O’Callaghan for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Cork 5-26 Kerry 0-09

Cork had far too much firepower for Kerry in Páirc Uí Rinn last night, setting up a Munster MHC semi-final at the end of June with the winners of tonight’s game between Limerick and Tipperary. With just three players on view from last year’s defeat to Waterford — captain Patrick Collins, Shane O’Brien and Alan O’Callaghan — the management team of Denis Ring and Mark Landers had to be happy with their new-look side. However, Ring acknowledged tougher tests are to come.

“We have a serious task ahead of us now, Limerick or Tipp,” he said. “There is no back door there. We might have preferred a better draw. Limerick are hammering the daylights out of everybody. We would be away against Limerick and if it is Tipp we are at home. But at this point and time Limerick would appear to be very strong. The next game for us is winner takes all. We have just one match to get it right. Unfortunately, it is going to be the difference between hurling in August and not.

“We have put in a phenomenal effort and we are happy with the display tonight. But the next nine weeks are very serious for us. We have a lot of matches lined up and we will also go back to our gym programme.”

Cork led 1-14 to 0-3 at half-time with Eoghan Keniry netting eight minutes before the break. The Rebels took over in the second half with further majors from Keniry, sub Billy Dunne and Luke Meade (2). Inside forwards Keniry and Sean Hayes are impressive ball-winners and will prove a handful for any full-back line. Luke Meade and Dayne Lee were also highly influential in an attack that found it all too easy.

It would have to be said — even though it was one-way traffic on the scoreboard — the visitors were far better than their nine-point return. Goalkeeper Stephen Murphy was superb between the sticks, centre-forward Michael O’Leary is an excellent hurler and was the scorer of two superb points from play, while Jack Goulding — despite wearing No 14 — roamed all over the pitch catching the eye many times. The Kingdom will meet Clare in a couple of weeks in a play-off game.

Scorers for Cork: L Meade and E Keniry 2-4 each, D Lee 0-7, S Hayes 0-6 (5f), B Dunne 1-0, T O’Connor 0-3, D Meaney and D Buckley 0-1 each.

Munster Minor Hurling Championship – Odds and Ends

Waterford have won at least 1 match in the Munster Minor Hurling Championship over the last 6 years. Cork and Limerick have the next best consecutive streak with at least 1 victory in each of the last 4 years. Tipperary have won a game in each of the last 3 years. While Clare did not secure a victory last year, they won a game in each of the previous 7 years. Tipperary have the best consecutive streak since 2000 winning a game in each of the ten years from 2000 to 2009 inclusive.  

Limerick are the defending Munster Minor Hurling Champions following a 1-20 to 4-8 victory over Waterford at Semple Stadium in the 2013 final replay. `

Waterford secured their first All Ireland minor hurling title since 1948 when they defeated Galway in the final on September 8th 2013 by 1-21 to 0-16.

Kerry make a welcome return to the Munster championship this year. In 2012, when they last competed, they lost both their games – the first against Tipperary and the second against Cork. 2013 was a good year for them as they won the All Ireland Minor Hurling B championship defeating Meath by 1-19 to 3-9 in the final.

Cork Coach Mark Landers captained Cork to win the All-Ireland senior hurling title in 1999. Manager Denis Ring guided St. Colman’s College Fermoy to a number of Harty Cup titles. This is a first season in charge for Denis and his team, who were appointed at the end of last season.

Tipperary captain, Brian Hogan, is the son of former TIpperary Senior Hurling goalkeeper and manager Ken. Brian lined out in goal for the Tipperary Minor Hurlers in their two matches last year emulating his father Ken who was the Tipperary Minor Hurling goalkeeper in 1980 and 1981, winning Munster and All-Ireland Minor Hurling medals in 1980.

Clare appeared in 3 Munster minor hurling finals in a row from 2010 to 2012, winning in 2010 and 2011 against Waterford and losing to Tipperary in 2012. Several of their All Ireland senior winning squad of 2013 featured on those minor teams.

Electric Ireland Munster MHC Q-F – Waterford 1-13 Clare 0-11

Waterford sink Clare with late blitz

By Diarmuid O’Flynn for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Waterford 1-13 Clare 0-11

A sluggish start by All-Ireland champions Waterford to the start of their 2014 campaign in this Munster MHC quarter-final in Ennis yesterday evening but a winning start nonetheless, a late surge of 1-5 without reply enough to edge them past the dogged challenge of the home side.

“We didn’t expect anything less from Clare,” said Waterford manager Derek Lyons. “We had seen them in some of their challenge games and they play a fast-paced game, similar to what their senior team is playing. They gave it their all, we just got a turn on them at a crucial time.”

Unsung even in their own county, little expected of this particular group this year, Clare took the fight to Waterford. From outstanding keeper Jason Loughnane, through a tidy and tough-tackling full-back trio of Jamie Arthur (outstanding), Seamus Downey and Rory Hayes, right up to Aaron Shanagher and Brian Guilfoyle, not one took a backward step.

“The one thing we asked of this panel was honesty,” said Fennessy. “In fairness to the lads, every one of them gave us that. A few things went wrong but we’re not going to blame them for that; they’ll learn from it. We’re still in the championship and okay, we have to go through the back-door but we’ve done that before.” “One positive I’ll take from this tonight, those young fellas will themselves now believe they can do what we as a management picked them to do; they’ve got the ability, all they need is to believe in themselves.” Certainly they have the ability and with Shanagher punishing the many transgressions by the Waterford defence, Clare were full value for their 0-7 to 0-5 half-time lead.

Waterford then turned to play with the wind and courtesy of points from their main score-getter Patrick Curran and team captain Shane Ryan, within two minutes the game was tied, 0-7 each. It was then though that Clare enjoyed what was probably their best spell and driven on by Darragh Walsh at centre-back, Michael O’Malley in midfield, Ian Galvin also doing well on the wing (younger brother of Colm), by the 45th minute they had built a three-point lead for themselves (0-11 to 0-8).

Poor shooting though had cost Clare in the first half (seven wides), and cost them again now, with three more wides on the trot. As noted by Derek Lyons however, those last seven minutes was when Waterford won this game. Sharp-looking sub Eddie Meaney got 1-1 (the goal in the 58th minute), Curran had a beauty to close it out, but Shane Bennett and Darragh Lyons also caught the eye.

“Clare are not out of this yet,” warned Derek. “We could even meet them again in the semi-final and I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if we did — they’re a lovely team to watch. We made it hard on ourselves at times tonight but that was down to the quality of players they have, the quality of the hurling they played.”

Scorers for Waterford: P Curran 0-7 (6f); E Meaney 1-1; P Hogan, S Ryan, E O’Halloran, S Bennett (f), D Lyons, 0-1 each.

Scorers for Clare: A Shanagher 0-7 (5f, 0-1 65); I Galvin 0-2; M O’Shea 0-2.

Cadbury Munster U21 Football Final – Cork 1-18 Tipperary 3-8

Rebels weather storm for four in a row

By Denis Hurley for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Cork 1-18 Tipperary 3-08
It may have been four Munster U21 football titles in a row for Cork but they were made to work for it as Tipperary produced a strong fight back at Páirc Uí Rinn last night. Cork could probably have felt unfortunate to be leading by ‘only’ five points at half-time, 0-12 to 1-4, after dominating much of the first half. A goal from sub Colman Kennedy barely a minute after his entrance had helped to rise Tipp from their stupor, however, and things were to get even better for them upon the resumption.

While a point from a free from Michael Quinlivan was answered by a John Corkery score at the other end, Tipp then really got going. Midfielder Steven O’Brien was on hand to finish after good work from John McGrath and Greg Henry before O’Brien’s midfield partner, Colin O’Riordan, made it a one-point game.

Quinlivan, who scored five of Tipp’s eight points, converted a free to tie matters, but the visitors were unable to push home their momentum. Had Quinlivan nailed a 42nd-minute effort, it might have made things more interesting, but Cork regained their footing instead. Two Dan MacEoin frees sandwiched a brilliant Alan Cadogan effort and then the impressive Seán Kiely opened up a six-point lead with a well-taken goal. Greg Henry ensured that Cork could not relax as he raised Tipp’s third green flag but they could not find the necessary second wind for another comeback.

Cork manager Seán Hayes hailed the character of his side afterwards. “This is the second day that they have done it,” he said, “they did it down in Tralee as well. “They just hang in there, they’re a fantastic bunch of guys that play lovely football and they just kept playing the way that they had, the way it should be played. “Tipp got back level with us, which we didn’t deserve but at the end of the day it’s all about who’s ahead at the final whistle and we were by four points. Everything taken into consideration, I’m delighted.”

Being able to call on so many players with experience of winning, including with the UCC Sigerson Cup-winning side of this spring, was a big factor in the way Cork showed good temperament, according to Hayes. “We had seven on the Sigerson,” he said, “and about eight or nine on the UCC freshers team which won the All-Ireland league. “There were fellas who had played Fitzgibbon, guys who play senior with their clubs, everywhere you look there’s experience and class. When you consider that we were missing Cathal Vaughan, you see how good we are.”

Vaughan is unlikely to be back for the All-Ireland semi-final with Roscommon on Saturday week, but in Cadogan Cork appear to have a real star. As well as standing up when the need was greatest, he was also to the fore as the hosts ran riot in the first half in front of 4,164 people. With Ian Maguire and Killian O’Hanlon dominating midfield and Seán Kiely helping them from wing-forward, Cork broke forward at will, with wing-back Kevin Crowley getting two early points and Brian O’Driscoll – named at 5 but playing 11 – also central.

Their incisiveness was in contrast to Tipp’s slow build-up, with centre-back Séamus Kennedy one of the few to show attacking desire. Cork led by 0-10 to 0-3 after O’Driscoll’s second point in the 24th minute, but then Colman Kennedy netted to breathe new life into Tipp, a good Quinlivan point helping them to believe that is was not over.

It certainly wasn’t, but despite drawing level, they could not find the lead. Cork’s running at the Tipp defence yielded the frees from which MacEoin scored and Kiely’s goal, following good work by John Corkery and O’Driscoll, was no more than his performance deserved. Henry’s goal – via a deflection – halved the deficit to three again with little under 10 minutes left, but this time Cork ensured they closed out matters in a businesslike fashion.

Scorers for Cork: D MacEoin (0-4 frees) A Cadogan 0-5 each, S Kiely 1-1, B O’Driscoll 0-3 (0-1 free), K Crowley 0-2, M Sugrue (0-1 free), J Corkery 0-1 each.

Cork see off Tipp for U21 four-in-a-row

Cadbury Munster U21 Football Final: Cork 1-18 Tipperary 3-8

Report from the GAA.ie web site

Cork kept their composure as they overcame a Tipperary revival to make it four Munster U21 wins in a row at Páirc Uí Rinn on Wednesday night. Having trailed by 0-12 to 1-5 at half-time, Tipperary began the second half in fine fashion, with points by Michael Quinlivan and Colin O’Riordan augmented by a goal from Steven O’Brien as they tied matters.

Crucially, however, the visitors could not seize the lead and once Cork regrouped they would not be denied, even if Tipperary’s Greg Henry made things nervy when he bagged their third goal. Cork led from pillar to post, with Alan Cadogan and Dan MacEoin heavily among the scores in the first half as Ian Maguire and Seán Kiely did well in the ball-winning stakes. They led by 0-10 to 0-3 after Brian O’Driscoll’s 24th-minute point but Tipperary sub Colman Kennedy gave them hope as he scored a goal within a minute of coming on.

It got even better for them when they drew level in the second half, but scores from MacEoin and Cadogan settled Cork again and then Kiely found the net to put the matter beyond doubt. Cork will play Connacht champions Roscommon in the All-Ireland semi-final on April 19 in Portlaoise.

Munster Under 21 Football Championship – Useful Information

  • Having failed to win a game in the Munster Under 21 Football Championship between 2002 and 2006, Tipperary have managed to win at least one match in this competition in 6 of the last 7 years, including the 2010 Munster title.
  • Cork are going for their fourth Munster Under 21 Football title in a row. The last such sequence of victories for Cork came from 2004 to 2007 when they won four titles on the trot – each of them against different opposition in the final (Kerry, Limerick, Waterford and Tipperary). Cork have also won 3 or more Munster titles in a row in this competition from 1969-1971, 1979-1981, 1984-1986.
  • At the turn of the millennium, only Cork and Kerry had won Munster Under 21 Football titles with Kerry out in front in the roll of honour by 23 titles to 15. Since then, Limerick, Waterford and Tipperary have captured 1 title each while Cork have dominated to the extent that a victory in the 2014 Munster Under 21 Football Championship will see the Rebel County draw level on the roll of honour with Kerry for the first time since the 1970’s.
  • Kerry won five Munster Under 21 Football titles in a row from 1995 to 1999, winning the All-Ireland in three of those five years – 1995, 1996 and 1998.
  • 4 of the last 6 Munster Under 21 Football Finals have been decided by one score or less – 2008 (Kerry 0-15 Tipperary 2-7), 2009 (Cork 1-9 Tipperary 2-5), 2010 (Tipperary 1-7 Kerry 1-6), 2012 (Cork 2-12 Kerry 1-14 AET)
  • For the record Cork have appeared in 38 finals, one more than Kerry; Tipperary have appeared in 11 finals (5 of which have been in the last 8 years). Meanwhile, Clare have appeared in 10 finals; Waterford in 8 finals and Limerick in 4 finals.
