… Dungarvan GAA Notes 19th August 2020

Sponsored by Cappoquin Logistics

Minor Hurling Our Minor Hurlers travelled to Lemybrien on Friday evening last to play Eirns Own in what turned out to be a humdinger of a game which required extra time to find a winner. After a fine tussle and a most entertaining battle it was the home side that prevailed at the final whistle. Although defeat was our lot the boys can be very proud of their performance on the night.Final score 2.12 to 3.13

Under 14

Anyone who was up early enough last Sunday morning and made the journey to Cappoquin to watch our Under 14 hurlers take on Cois Bhride were to witness a proverbial thriller. That the status of the competition was the lowly Division 3 Western Final was immaterial to this thrilling encounter. We started the game in tremendous fashion and dominated all areas of the field and put over some excellent points to race into an early lead. Despite our dominance the concession of a goal brought them back into the game. Luckily we responded with a powerful individual goal from Eddie Burke and a typical poachers goal from Oisin Hallahan which laid the foundation for an interval lead of 2.7 to 1.1 having played the best 25 minutes hurling from them all year and a fully deserved 9 point lead which could easily have been more but for some missed goal opportunities. It looked all plain sailing but the storm clouds were looming. For some mysterious reason we began to become somewhat complacent and allowed the opposition back into the game. Again a series of missed chances didn’t help our cause . Going into the final session after the water break we were still 6 points to the good but it was very noticeable that the more physically built Cois Bhride lads were beginning to gain control and their route one policy of going for goals would cancel out Our choice of point taking. Such was the case unfortunately as two goals brought them to parity entering the final tense minutes. Indeed it looked as if we would be heading for extra time with excitement at fever pitch . Then going a point behind we still had more chances to win it but when it’s not your day and things are not going your way you just have to accept it. Unbelievably come full time we were defeated on a 2.12 to 4.7 scoreline. To say that we blew this one would be an understatement but lessons will be learned for the future and we wish Cois Bhride every success in their county final.

Under 13

Our under 13 hurlers continued their campaign in this year’s championship when Ballyduff made the trip to Clogherane on Monday 10th August. With a draw and two wins gathered thus far we were anxious to try and maintain our unbeaten run. On what was a beautiful summers evening for hurling a physical strong and skilful Ballyduff side were determined to upset that record. Again like in our previous games there was very little between the teams but a feature of our play was some fine point scoring which was to help us immensely and laid the foundations for a 2.13 to 2.9 victory after a tremendous game. Panel: Luke Irwin, Luke Power,Billy Hickey,Raymond Kelly,John Meehan,Brandon Dillon,Ruaidhri Beresford,Tony O’Donnell,Seanie Cummins,Donnacha Hamilton,Will Healy,Jacob Dalton,Corey Lyons,Pierce Quann,Oisin Hallahan ,Ryan McGovern We now progress to a quarter final fixture where our opponents are as yet unknown and the game likely to take place this weekend.

Under 12

Our Under 12 hurlers played their fourth round game against Abbeyside last Wednesday evening 12th August in a game which was brought forward from its usual Friday evening slot to accommodate all those making their confirmation over the weekend. It was to prove a disappointing evening for us as having conceded some early goals we were put on the backfoot and failed to muster up any sort of a stern challenge to the more powerful Abbeyside side. Thankfully we know we are capable of performing so much better than our showing here and a chance to redeem themselves. Panel: Pierce Quann,Corey Lyons,Jacob Dalton,Oisin Hallahan,Ryan McGovern,Daniel Healy,Toby Moore,Ronan Gleeson,Charlie Crotty,Rian O’Sullivan,Rian Hallahan,Callum Fitzgerald,Dillon Quinlan,Aaron Dillon. Our fifth and final game is scheduled for Friday evening when we play our fellow Dungarvan side Brickey Rangers.

Under 9

Our under 9 hurlers had a busy week where on Thursday evening last they welcomed St Pats to Clogherane and were in action again on Saturday morning at a busy Clogherane when they hosted a series of mini games with An Rinn and Brickey Rangers providing the opposition. Hopefully all teams enjoyed the games as they begin their hurling journey whilst also worthy of note was our fellow town’s peoples side to enter two teams such is their magnitude of numbers. Well done to everyone involved.

Saturday mornings

On what was a busy morning in Clogherane last Saturday morning with the Mini blitz taking place and in the dampish and murky weather conditions warmest day our youngest group continued their Saturday morning sessions with great enthusiasm.Great to see some new children take part and with the beginning of the new school year just around the corner hopefully the children were eager to let off a bit of steam and continue their enjoyment of the games. Please note that these sessions will continue throughout the remaining summer weeks and will accommodate both boys and girls with no age restrictions and are free of any charge.


It was the second round game in the Intermediate Camogie Championship last Saturday night at a damp and humid Clogherane when Butlerstown were welcome visitors. With both teams victorious in their first round games this was predicted to be a tight and tense encounter as victory to either team would see them progress to a semi final position. Pre match predictions were to be right and the slippery underfoot conditions weren’t to help. We started the better and managed to put over some fine point scoring chances and a Sarah Lacey goal was to extend our lead at the interval to a 1.7 to 0.5 scoreline. Playing with great enthusiasm and putting in tremendous work rate in all sectors of the field we continued to press forward in search of scores in the second half.A Caoimhe Dwyer goal mid way through the half was to extend our lead further and try as the Butlerstown girls tried to get back into the game they were to come up against a resolute defense outfit which were giving them no chance to come back. Come full time we managed to still be in front on a 2.12 to 0.8 scoreline. Delighted to having reached a semi final spot nobody is more aware than the girls themselves that things will get more difficult for them as the challenges become more arduous and the competition that bit more intense. However it’s a challenge that the girls are more than capable of overcoming if they continue to progress as they have done in their commitment and dedication in the past few weeks. That semi final is scheduled for Saturday 29th August which we will be more than ready for. One downside of the weekend was the minor knocks received by some players on Saturday evening but having to go out the following Sunday morning to play with the football equivalent and no chance for recouperating. Needless to say there is no cohesion between both the Camogie and Ladies football associations but it’s the players you would have most sympathy for. You would have to be envious of the likes of Gaultier and the De La Salles who have no such distractions. It’s no wonder they are head and shoulders ahead of everyone else.

JJ KAVANAGH AND SONS COUNTY SENIOR HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND 3 Goals Prove Crucial as Lismore Advance Lismore 6-18 Dungarvan 4-19 Lismore scored 24 times in this most entertaining third round senior hurling championship game at the Fraher Field last Sunday evening and Dungarvan did so on 23 occasions but the crucial difference between the sides was the amount of goals each scored. Lismore deserved their win as they led from the second minute and the ability of their forwards to ‘lose’ their markers and strike for major scores denied a workmanlike Dungarvan side from upsetting pre match predictions. Ray Barry and sub Oisin O Gorman were the goal heroes for the winners striking five between them and these major scores often came at a time when Dungarvan were challenging Lismore’s superiority. Kieran Power did very well in policing Maurice Shanahan, confining him to 0-2 from play but the damage was done inside where Dungarvan fielded two first time corner backs, a difficult task for any player in such a big fixture and not tested in challenge games at the first time of asking. After an opening score by Patrick Curran, Jack Prendergast set the scene for a hatful of goals at the Shandon venue when he finshed a pass from Maurice Shanahan to the town end goal. Gavin Power did well to deprive Maurice Shanahan a similar score before the latter opened his account with a pointed free on three minutes, 1-1 to 0-1. Championship newcomers for the Blues, Johnny Burke and Tristan Loftus, who were among Dungarvan’s best players, settled their side with scores from play but three uninterrupted minors per Jack Prendergast, Finbarr Reaney and Maurice Shanahan kept Lismore on the front footing at 1-4 to 0-3 and nine minutes played. Patrick Curran was off target with two frees but their fortunes changed when Colm Curran pointed and Gavin Crotty finshed a Loftus/ Burke move to the net in the 13th minute. An exchange of minors by Maurice Shanahan and Patrick Curran ensured parity at 1-5 each but Dungarvan could never get ahead of their opponents. Jack Prendergast saw a good goal opportunity sail over the bar at the end of the first quarter and every time Lismore advanced they threatened a goal. Darragh Lyons had a superb game for the locals and he levelled proceedings for the second time before Lismore took a firm grip. Following a Maurice Shanahan pointed ‘65’ and an opening score by Ray Barry, the latter burst on to the scene with a brace of goals in the 24th minute from deliveries by Shanahan and Carthach Daly, the latter cutting through the centre. Maurice Shanahan popped over his fourth pointed free in the 25th minute and with the scoreboard reading 3-9 to 1-6, the outcome indeed looked bleak for the Blues. Yet, Lismore were not to score for the remainder of the half and Dungarvan stuck to their task to get back into the game. Johnny Burke started the comeback with 0-3(2f) and Colm Curran supplied 0-2 from play before Luke O Callaghan was quickest to react to a Burke free coming back off the upright and he placed Patrick Curran for Dungarvan’ s second goal. The momentum was with the locals when the half time whistled sounded but as the action unfolded at the start of the second half, the break in play didn’t do them any favours. Dungarvan looked poised to mount a real challenge but when an early second half ball was lost in their half back line, sub Oisin O Gorman, just on, finished a pass from Ray Barry to the net and the Blues were on the back foot once more. Paudie Prendergast and Patrick Curran traded points from play as did Johnny Burke(f) and Prendergast again before Seane Barry saved from Tristan Loftus at the expense of a ‘65’. Maurice Shanahan pointed from play and Lismore were ahead by 4-12 to 2-13 with five minutes of the second half played. Joe Allen replaced an unlucky Gavin Power for Dungarvan and the Blues may have been better served if they had replaced their other corner back who was on a yellow card. Johnny Burke pointed a ‘65’ but Dungarvan were again put back in their box when Oisin O Gorman was quickest to react to a superb save by Darren Duggan from Ray Barry, with a look of a square ball about it, to change the scoreboard to 5-12 to 2-14 and 38 minutes played. Seven points the difference and Johnny Burke and Maurice Shanahan traded pointed frees but Dungarvan kept battling and a Colm Curran fourth point from play left a clear two goals between the teams at the end of the third quarter. Five minutes later Dungarvan’s hopes were raised again when, after Shanahan and Burke swopped minors once more, the industrious throughout Darragh Lyons placed Patrick Curran for his second goal from play, 5-14 to 3-17. Then misfortune hit the Blues when Kealan Daly was sidelined on a second yellow card with Maurice Shanahan punishing the necessary indiscretion on Carthach Daly heading for goal. By the 53rd minute, Lismore’s advantage was whittled down to 0-2 thanks to scores by Jamie Nagle and Patrick Curran before Ray Barry pointed two minutes later. Dungarvan’s all match weakness in front of their own goal surfaced for the defining time in the 57th minute when Finbarr Reaney and Paudie Prendergast combined to feed a loose Ray Barry in front of the country end goal to complete his hat trick and to finish off the game. Reaney and Maurice Shanahan(f) added minors , 0-8 the gap, before a Colm Curran delivery was sent to the net by Johnny Burke to put a better look on the scoreboard. The scoreline suggest two good forward divisions and two not so good defences. Lismore will be concerned with handing over 4-19 ahead of their quarter final clash with Abbeyside this weekend while Dungarvan will be required to get their injured players back and concentrate on building their team from the back if they are going to be a force in 2021.

THE LOCAL BAR WESTERN JUNIOR B HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP Ballyduff advance to divisional semi final Ballyduff Upper 3-24 Dungarvan 3-7 A fitter Ballyduff side proved comprehensive winners over Dungarvan in the second round of the Western B junior hurling championship in Ballyduff last Sunday morning. The visitors matched the home side up to half time when they trailed by just 0-2 on a score of 1-10 to 2-5 but the second moiety was a different story with the hosts completely on top in a period that they won by 2-14 to 1-2. Gone are the days when junior hurling teams were on an even par preparation wise with fitness not the major difference but this young Ballyduff side had too much in the tank for their opponents and they can deservingly look forward to a semi final berth along with Abbeyside whom they will play in their final group game this weekend. Dungarvan led by 1-2 to 0-1 after nine minutes thanks to a Conor Duggan goal but Conor Hickey soon had a major score for the home side which left the teams level nearing the end of the first quarter. A brace of Conor Duggan pointed frees had Dungarvan back in front but as the half wore on Ballyduff’s greater fitness kicked in and they scored eight uninterrupted minors per Cathal Casey 0-3f, Cian Leamy, Jack McDonagh, Aidan O Brien, Shane Casey and Tireoghain Flynn to lead by 1-10 to 1-4 nearing half time. A second Dungarvan goal by Liam Ryan and a further pointed free by Conor Duggan gave the blues some hope for the second half, just two points behind. Two Cathal Casey points opened the second half scoring before Liam Ryan and Cian Leamy traded goals which had the reds ahead by 2-12 to 3-5. Dungarvan added only 0-2f via Conor Duggan for the rest of the game while Ballyduff scored at will. Players such as Cathal Casey, Conor Hickey, Tireoghain Flynn, Aidan O Brien, Shane Casey, Cian Leamy and sub Bill Keane all dissected the posts with fine scores. Ballyduff will play Abbeyside this Friday evening in the Burgery grounds with the winners topping the group. Against Dungarvan they received fine displays from such as Peter Kennedy, Michael Kearney, Aidan O Brien, Cian Leamy, Cathal Casey and Conor Hickey. Dungarvan’s best included Conor Sheehan, James O Callaghan, David Flynn, Sean Hyslop, Conor Duggan, Liam Ryan and Brendan Cullinane. Scorers : Ballyduff : Cathal Casey 0-9(6f), Conor Hickey 1-3, Cian Leamy 1-3, Aidan O Brien 0-3, Shane Casey and Tireoghain Flynn 0-2 each, Jack McDonagh and Bill Keane 0-1 each.
