McGrath Cup Quarter Final – Cork 1-14 Tipperary 0-12

Cork defeated Tipperary by 1-14 to 0-12 in the Quarter-Final of the McGrath Cup on Sunday January 11th at Clonmel Sportsfield.

O’Connor hits the net as Cork see off Tipperary to reach McGrath Cup semi-final

Cork 1-14 Tipperary 0-12

Report by Conor Kane for

A FIRST-HALF scoring exhibition by Donncha O’Connor gave Cork the foundation for a McGrath Cup win which puts them into next weekend’s semi-finals and gives panellists further opportunity to impress.

Rebel manager Brian Cuthbert welcomed the chance for “game-time” for his extended squad after this victory over home team Tipperary in a game which proved relatively high-scoring for the time of year. “It was a tough game,” Cuthbert said afterwards. “Tipp are a good physical team, they could have beaten us in the championship in Cork last year, maybe they should have beaten us. “Certainly they didn’t hold back today but sure you wouldn’t expect them to hold back. It was a case of a tough game and that’s what you want.”

After a brief flurry at the start, when George Hannigan scored after 40 seconds before a Cork player had touched the ball, Tipp quickly found themselves on the backfoot. O’Connor fired over a couple of quickfire points, added to by others by Colm O’Neill, before O’Connor stroked home a penalty after Jamie O’Sullivan was brought down in the 18th minute. That gave them a three-point lead and the scores were never any tighter than that for the remainder of the fixture.

Tipperary manager Peter Creedon described it as “a great workout at this time of year, considering we’re not back that long,” following a protracted senior club championship which only ended on St Stephen’s Day. Colm O’Neill got all four of Cork’s points after the break and they led by eight with 10 minutes on the clock. However, a late burst of scoring by Tipp, two frees by Conor Sweeney and an effort by Robbie Kiely, gave the scoreboard a respectable look.

Scorers for Cork: Donncha O’Connor 1-4 (1-0 pen), Colm O’Neill 0-7 (0-5f, 1 ’45’), Mark Collins, Dan McEoin, John Hayes 0-1 each.

Scorers for Tipperary: Conor Sweeney 0-5 (0-3f), George Hannigan, Barry Grogan 0-2 each, Robbie Kiely, Seamus Kennedy, Michael Quinlivan 0-1 each.

O’Halloran stars as Waterford hurlers defeat Limerick IT in Waterford Crystal Cup

Waterford 1-22 Limerick IT 0-18

Report by Tomas McCarthy for

BRIAN O’HALLORAN REGISTERED 1-4 as Waterford battled to victory against a stubborn Limerick IT at a dull Carriganore in this afternoon’s Waterford Crystal Cup first round tie.

His strike ten minutes into the second half offered the home side breathing space to progress to a quarter final meeting away to Limerick next weekend. Pauric Mahony helped out O’Halloran in attack with ten points while ten different sources contributed on the scoreboard. Gavin O’Brien, Austin Gleeson and Pa Walsh also formed a steady half-back line. Derek McGrath offered competitive debuts to Pa Walsh and Michael Kearney and the hosts started brightly. They opened up a four gap before LIT’s defence got to grips and they implemented their short passing game.

Four frees from David Reidy and two from play by Seanie O’Brien levelled the contest at nine points all on 31 minutes. Pauric Mahony scored six points for the Deise in that first half (five frees) and they departed with a 0-11 to 0-9 lead at half time. A Mahony double stretched that advantage to four on the restart but Davy Fitzgerald’s side maintained their interest. Paul Flaherty, Alan Dempsey, Reidy and O’Brien raided points for the plucky students to tie it up again (14 points apiece). Michael Walsh and Pa Walsh retrieved Waterford’s lead before O’Halloran smashed home from close range after 45 minutes (1-16 to 0-14).

LIT reduced the damage to a goal entering the last seven minutes but Waterford shut down the game with O’Halloran as destroyer in chief. The Clashmore man accounted for 1-3 during a busy second half. Substitutes Donie Breathnach and Shane Bennett sealed the win with late singles.

Scorers for Waterford: Pauric Mahony 0-10 (0-8f), Brian O’Halloran 1-4, Gavin O’Brien, Pa Walsh, Martin O’Neill, Shane O’Sullivan, Kevin Moran, Michael Walsh, Shane Bennett, Donie Breathnach 0-1 each.

Scorers for Limerick IT: David Reidy 0-9 (0-8f), Seanie O’Brien 0-3, Paul Flaherty 0-2, Alan Dempsey, David Dempsey, Patrick Fitzgerald, Barry O’Connell 0-1 each.

McGrath Cup Quarter Final – UCC 4-16 Limerick 3-9

UCC defeated Limerick by 4-16 to 3-9 in the Quarter-Final of the McGrath Cup on Sunday January 11th at Mick Neville Park Rathkeale.

Limerick footballers beaten by UCC in McGrath Cup

UCC 4-16 Limerick 3-9

Report by Jerome O’Connell for the Limerick Leader Newspaper

THE Limerick senior footballers made a losing start to 2015 in this Sunday’s McGrath Cup quarter-final tie against UCC, 4-16 to 3-9. Limerick were 3-7 to 0-8 ahead entering the final quarter but then the Cork students found another gear to advance to a semi-final meeting with fellow Third Level College, IT Tralee in the early season provincial competition.

Played in Mick Neville Park in Rathkeale this Sunday, Limerick lined out with eight of the side that started in the Munster SFC last Summer. However, there were three first time starters in Robert Browne and Cillian Fahy in defence and James Naughton in attack. A further three players made their first Limerick senior inter-county appearance as second half subs; Denis O’Dea, Jason Mullins and Tony McCarthy.

Overall the Cork side were deserving winners and aside from the opening minutes of the second period the Billy Morgan managed side set the tempo. Limerick must now go down the challenge game route to prepare for the February 1 opening round game in Newcastle West against Sligo in Division Three of the National Football League.

Back into contention for that tie will be college-tied Gearoid Hegarty, Darragh Treacy, Donal O’Sullivan and Peter Nash, while manager John Brudair will also be hoping that his injury list shortens with Ian Ryan, Stephen Lucey, Killian Phair and Jamie Lee all ruled out at present.

However, more alarming is that regulars Pa Ranahan, Mark O’Riordan, Eoin Hanrahan and Ger Collins are yet to confirm their plans for 2015. With a keenly contested league on the horizon, the strength in depth of the panel could certainly be tested.

In this McGrath Cup tie, all didn’t look good for Limerick after 15-minutes when trailing 1-5 to no score and playing with the wind. Wing back Tomas Clancy had the UCC goal in the sixth minute. Finally Limerick were on the scoresheet in the 22nd minute when debutante James Naughton kicked the first of his six frees – all from the ground.

Captain Seanie Buckley dragged Limerick back into the game with a 23rd minute goal to leave it 1-2 to 1-5. But an Adrian Spillane goal had UCC 2-6 to 1-4 ahead at the break with Naughton frees accounting for all the Limerick points in the half. Limerick bossed the opening minutes of the second half to lead 3-7 to 2-8 with just over 20-minutes remaining. Buckley’s second goal came in the fourth minute from the penalty spot, while in the 10th minute of the half he again weaved through the defence to blast low to the corner.

Alas Limerick couldn’t build on the lead and UCC kicked an unanswered 1-8 to turn the game back in their favour. Thomas Hickey got both of their second half goals. Limerick only scored twice in the final 23-minutes from Iain Corbett and Naughton (free).

Limerick: Seanie Buckley 3-0 (1pen), James Naughton 0-6 (6frees), Sean O’Dea, Micheal Brosnan and Iain Corbett 0-1 each. UCC: Thomas Hickey 2-5 (0-4frees), Adrian Spillane 1-1, Tomas Clancy 1-0, Conor Horgan 0-3, David Harrington and Conor Cox (1free) 0-2 each, Conor Dorman, Eanna O’Connchuir and Gary O’Sullivan 0-1 each.

McGrath Cup Quarter Final – Waterford 1-11 CIT 0-9

Waterford defeated the Cork Institute of Technology by 1-11 to 0-9 in the Quarter-Final of the McGrath Cup on Sunday January 11th at Clashmore.

Shane Ahearne sets the tone as Waterford edge students

By David Prendergast for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Waterford 1-11 CIT 0-09: Waterford’s Shane Ahearne banged over a point from 60 yards three minutes into this McGrath Cup game to set the tone for the home side. Playing with a strong wind, Tom McGlinchey’s men dictated the play for the opening 25 minute, leading ten minutes from the break 0-6 to 0-1.

In-form form Ahearne struck a further three points to solidify Waterford’s grip. Tommy Prendergast and Paul Whyte supplied the back-up with a point apiece from the Kilrossanty clubmen.

The students finally began to find their feet ten minutes before the break. A hat-trick of points from Darragh Treacy, Jason Loneragn, and Donal Óg Hodnett in the 26th, 27th, and 29th minute served as a warning for Waterford. Michael O’Halloran and Barry O’Mahoney then traded points for a half-time score of 0-7 to 0-5 in favour of Waterford.

CIT shot out of the blocks on the resumption and immediately went to work on overhauling the deficit, with Hodnett shooting four points to put them in front for the first time. That proved to be the students’ last score as former inter-county hurler Liam Lawlor entered the fray in the half-back line and helped shackle CIT’s dangermen.

Waterford Manager Tom McGlinchey was quick to praise Lawlor’s calming influence on the game: “Especially when we were under the cosh, I suppose the first 15 minutes of the second half, his experience told there. When we needed to slow down a bit and keep cool heads on the ball.

Full-forward Gavin Nugent cut the deficit to one before Ray Kelly tied up the game at 0-9 apiece on 60 minutes. The killer score came on 62 minutes. A high ball unsettled CIT goalkeeper Sean Barron and substitute Lorcan Ó Curraoin was on hand to score the goal Waterford craved. Ahearne and Whyte then added late points.

Scorers for Waterford: S Ahearne 0-5 (1f); L O Curraoin 1-0; P Whyte 0-2 (1f); T Prendergast, M O’Halloran, G Nugent, R Kelly 0-1.

Scorers for CIT: D Óg Hodnett 0-5 (5fs); B O’Mahoney 0-2; D Treacy, J Lonergan 0-1.

Tommy Walsh kept in reserve as IT Tralee stun Kerry

By Eoghan Cormican for the Irish Examiner newspaper

IT Tralee 4-12 Kerry 0-16: Kerry U21 selector John Shanahan has hinted that senior boss Eamonn Fitzmaurice dictated that the returning Tommy Walsh play no part in yesterday’s McGrath Cup quarter-final.

With the All-Ireland champions enjoying a team holiday in South Africa, U21 manager Darragh Ó Sé was asked to take charge at the eleventh hour, fielding a relatively inexperienced side comprising of U21 and junior players. Ó’Sé’s U21 management team had sought the services of Tommy Walsh, but were informed the Kerins O’Rahilly’s forward was unavailable for the fixture.

The makeshift Kingdom outfit were undone by a rousing closing surge from Noel Kennelly’s IT Tralee, who although facing into a strong gale, outscored Kerry by 3-6 to 0-3 during the final 23 minutes of action.

Fitzmaurice’s All-Ireland winning squad were expected to return home this week to a McGrath Cup semi-final. Instead it is the students who will square off against UCC next Sunday. “I don’t think this result will affect the plans of the senior management,” said Shanahan. “I imagine they will want to get a couple of sessions under their belt before they start playing competitive games.” He added: “We put it out there that we were looking for players and word came back to us that Tommy Walsh was unavailable. I presume Eamonn wants him first hand to himself for training before he met someone like us.”

Five unanswered points from Gavin O’Grady (free), Paul Kennelly, Liam Carey, Killian Spillane (free) and Gary Sayers moved Kerry 0-13 to 1-6 clear early at the change of ends and with the elements in support, general consensus was that Kerry would close out the win with minimum fuss. A Conor Keane converted penalty on 47 minutes for a foul on substitute Padraig O’Shea kick-started IT Tralee’s resurgence and O’Shea raised their third green flag when punching Keane’s delivery to the net.

Gary Sayers posted Kerry’s response, an effort quickly cancelled out by two points from Legion’s Keane. Indeed, the impressive centre-forward ensured he would have a hand in all four IT Tralee goals when initiating the passage of play that finished with Peter Nash firing home from close range on 67 minutes.

Victorious boss Noel Kennelly was fulsome in his praise of Keane. “Conor and Jack Savage are two lads who have massive potential. They will play for Kerry, I am sure of that. We had three goal chances in the first half and we only took one of them. I thought we mightn’t have done enough at the break. We got the penalty at the right time. It gave our guys more confidence and they pushed on, which was great.

“Competitive games are the way to go and it is great now that we can go into the next round against UCC. They are at the level we want to be.”

Scorers for IT Tralee: C Keane (2-5, 1-0 pen, 0-3 frees); P O’Shea (1-1); P Nash (1-0); J Savage (0-3, 0-1 free); C O’Connell, C Cromwell, D McElligott (0-1 each).

Scorers for Kerry: G O’Grady (0-3, 0-3 frees); G Sayers, J Crean (0-1 free), P Kennelly (0-2 each); K McCarthy, C McGillicuddy, A Barry, M Burns, L Carey, K Spillane (0-1 free), T O’Sullivan (0-1 each).

Kerry lose McGrath Cup opener to IT Tralee team inspired by 2-5 from Conor Keane

IT Tralee 4-12 Kerry 0-16

Report from

ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS Kerry suffered a shock defeat to the local IT Tralee in an engaging McGrath Cup quarter-final, but the devil is in the detail. This was a totally unrecognisable Kerry team from the one that won the county’s 37th All-Ireland title last September, with not a single All-Ireland senior medal winner involved for Kerry.

Indeed, the closest Kerry had to All-Ireland experience in Austin Stack Park was their manager, Darragh O Se, who assumed the managerial duties in the absence of Eamonn Fitzmaurice who, with almost the entire Kerry senior squad, was still away on the team holiday.

Drawing from O Se’s own U-21 squad and an eclectic group of club players meant an upset was always quite likely. The ITT side, managed by Noel Kennelly, sensed a shock was possible and went about their business in an assured manner from the start. With IT Tralee lining out with just two non-Kerry players in their team, there was a real derby feel to this contest before 800 hundred spectators. But the contest fizzled out in the final quarter as the students taught this inexperienced county team a harsh lesson.
The first quarter was an even affair until Conor Keane’s 15th minute goal edged the IT ahead for the first time. Kerry responded well and a string of points from Gavan O’Grady, James Crean, Kevin McCarthy and Colin McGillicuddy restored a slender lead for Kerry, 0-8 to 1-4. In a real see-saw first half, IT Tralee took the initiative again and late scores from Stacks duo Denis McElligott and Ciaran O’Connell helped the students to a 1-6 to 0-8 half time lead.

The game looked like it was slipping away from the IT in the third quarter as Kerry opened up a 0-13 to 1-6 lead by the 44th minute but thereafter the IT owned the game. Keane rolled his penalty past Shane Murphy after sub Padraig O’Shea was fouled and then Keane turned provider for O’Shea to bundle the ball past Murphy in the 48th minute to give IT Tralee a 3-8 to 0-13 lead.

Kerry’s shape and challenge fell apart after that and Limerick senior panellist Pater Nash raised a fourth green flag for the students who recorded just their third McGrath Cup win and consign the All-Ireland champions to a humbling defeat.

Scorers for IT Tralee: Conor Keane 2-5 (1-0 pen, 0-3f), Padraig O’Shea 1-1, Peter Nash 1-0, Jack Savage 0-3 (0-1f), Denis McElligott, Ciaran O’Connell, Cillian Cromwell 0-1 each.

Scorers for Kerry: Gavan O’Grady 0-3 (0-3f), James Crean 0-2 (0-1f), Paul Kennelly, Gary Sayers 0-2 each, Kevin McCarthy, Tom O’Sullivan, Colin McGillicuddy, Adam Barry, Micheal Burns, Liam Carey, Killian Spillane 0-1 each.
