Munster Super 10’s FÉ 15 Competition for Club Teams

WHAT IS HAPPENING?
The Munster Super 10’s is a competition run by Munster Coaching & Games for clubs throughout the Province.
It is played at 10 a side with a panel of 12 players and is open to all clubs with a choice to play football or hurling.
The games are fast, action packed and competitive. The novelty of playing 10 a side has proven a big hit with the players as it is a refreshing change to the 15 a side game.
To get a flavour of the action, click here (Ignore the dates on the video)


WHEN IS IT HAPPENING?
The competition starts with a blitz day on the 26th May involving 4 teams at a central location. Clubs have to be open to travel but the venues and groups will be devised to limit travel where possible while giving clubs the opportunity to play against unfamiliar opposition.


WHAT FORMAT IS USED?
Each club plays 3 games on the day and the group winners will advance to the finals in Mallow on the 16th June.
Games are played at 10 a side and the games are played 21 to 21 using u12 size portable goal posts.
The games are approximately 12 minutes per half but after playing 3 games this is more than adequate. Clubs are asked to guarantee all players a minimum of 30 minutes playing time.
All group winners will receive a specially commissioned training top while the outright winning teams in both codes will receive gear bags for all 12 squad members and a set of goal posts for their club.


HOW TO ENTER?
Clubs should contact their local GDA if they have any questions on this event.
If happy to enter, then just complete the form below.!
However, before you enter, please check that all your players will be available on the day and that you are prepared to travel.
In previous years, clubs pulled out at the last minute which is very unfair on the host clubs and other teams in the group. Therefore it is important to have your homework done before completing this form.


THE DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES IS THE 1st May
No entries can be accepted after this point.

Match Highlights


Bord Gais Energy Munster Under 21 Hurling Championship

LIMERICK 3-18 CLARE 0-13

Report by GAA.ie

Conor Boylan and Seamus Flanagan both hit 1-2 as the reigning All-Ireland U-21 champions defeated Clare in the Munster quarter-final at Cusack Park in Ennis. Brian Ryan also scored six points from play, and substitute Mark O’Dwyer added a goal just after his introduction late on. Limerick completely dominated the first half and should have held a more substantial lead, than their 0-10 to 0-8 interval advantage. But after Conor O’Halloran was sent-off Limerick wore Clare down, and the goals arrived in the final quarter.

Limerick began well and senior star Flanagan was a big presence in the full-forward line. Kyle Hayes was dominant in the half-back line too, and they built from there. The visitors scored three points in a row, with Boylan the first to find his range inside the opening minute. Points from Barry Murphy and Ryan followed and Clare looked in real trouble. Michael Corry replied with a badly needed effort in the sixth minute, but that was cancelled out by Ryan and Darren O’Connell. And Flanagan got his deserved point in the 14th minute. The Feohanagh clubman moved out to the half-forward line where he began to supply some brilliant passes inside, and Limerick continued to win all the personal battles apart from some inspired play from Clare captain Jason McCarthy.

Aidan McCarthy’s point in the 15th minute was a timely reprieve and Clare trailed by 0-7 to 0-3 when Gary Cooney scored shortly after. The teams went point for point, but Clare didn’t go away, and despite some erratic shooting they were still right in the game as it approached half-time. However, Ryan was in fine form and scored his fourth point from play while Murphy’s second opened up a 0-10 to 0-4 lead in the 25th minute. Limerick looked to be in control but Clare rallied before the interval, and points from Padraic O’Loughlin, Gary Cooney and Aidan McCarthy (two frees) meant they only trailed by 0-10 to 0-8.

But O’Halloran’s red card in the 32nd minute, for a clash with Darren O’Connell, was a turning point. Clare stayed in the game with McCarthy’s frees, he finished with six points, but Limerick hammered home their advantage once Flanagan scored the crucial goal. That arrived in the 45th minute, Boylan found the net eight minutes from time, and O’Dwyer sealed the victory with his first touch.

Scorers for Limerick: Brian Ryan 0-6, Seamus Flanagan 1-2, Conor Boylan 1-2, Barry Murphy 0-5 (4fs), Mark O’Dwyer 1-1, Darren O’Connell 0-1, Paddy O’Loughlin 0-1.
