Munster Club SFC Final – Commercials 1-7 Nemo Rangers 0-9

Munster SFC Final: Clonmel make history


By Denis Hurley for

Clonmel Commercials became the first Tipperary club to win the Munster Club SFC as Michael Quinlivan’s late goal gave them victory over Nemo Rangers at Mallow on Sunday.

As the game moved into its 62nd minute, Nemo were on the verge of a record 16th provincial senior title after reeling off four unanswered points to lead by 0-9 to 0-7, but Clonmel had time to mount one last attack. From Aldo Matassa’s delivery, Quinlivan pounced on the ball when Nemo didn’t clear and his low shot evaded the reach of Micheál Martin to nestle in the bottom corner of the net, sparking wild celebrations.

While they may have needed good fortune to seize victory at the death, it couldn’t be said that Clonmel didn’t deserve victory as they battled well with Nemo throughout. In front of 1,175, the first half saw 10 points shared as Nemo’s good start was neutralised, with Jason Lonergan and Kevin Harney impressing for the Tipperary champions.

Things got better for them upon the resumption as Michael Quinlivan scored a 45 and then a long-range free to put them ahead for the first time, but, as is their wont, Nemo refused to wilt.

It took them until the 45th minute to get a second-half score, through Kerrigan, but the same player almost put them ahead with a goal, unlucky to see his shot hit the post and go wide. Nevertheless, they were level when Luke Connolly scored a fine free from the left and then Kerrigan put them in front before Jack Horgan added another.

The black and green ribbons were being prepared for the cup, but Quinlivan had the decisive say.

Scorers for Clonmel Commercials: Michael Quinlivan 1-3 (2 ’45’, 1f), Jack Kennedy 0-1, Aldo Matassa 0-1, Kevin Harney 0-1, Jason Lonergan 0-1

Scorers for Nemo Rangers: Paul Kerrigan 0-3, James Masters 0-2 (1 free), Jack Horgan 0-1, David Niblock 0-1, Luke Connolly 0-1 (1f), David O’Donovan 0-1

Dr. Harty Cup – Gaelcholaiste Mhuire AG 2-13 Pobal Scoil na Trionoide (Youghal) 2-7

Gaelcholaiste Mhuire Mon overcome Youghal in Harty Cup

Gaelcholaiste Mhuire AG 2-13 Pobal Scoil na Trionoide (Youghal) 2-7

Report by Paddy Ryan

Gaelcholaiste Mhuire AG were already out of competition to make the knockout stages of the Harty Cup entering this game in Fermoy on Wednesday. Pobal Scoil na Trionoide who had only played one game were still in with a chance provided they were victorious. Following a keenly contested game AG Mon were winners by a 6 point margin. The Youghal side had the aid of the strong wind in the first half. They had two early points by Darragh O’Connell. The ‘Mon’ took the lead in the 10th minute when Sean Busteed struck for a well taken goal. Both sides exchanged a point by the end of the first quarter. A well placed puckout by Sean O’Meara led to a great point by impressive Daithi Braham. The Imokilly side hit the front in the 17th minute when Jack O’Ruairc struck for a well taken goal 1-3 to 1-2. By the 26th minute they were level 1-4 each. Darragh O’Connell with two late pointed frees gave the East Cork side an interval lead 1-6 to 1-4. Youghal’s lead seemed very poor entering the second half facing the wind.

The City lads gained supremacy in vital sectors and substitutes Evan O’Siochain and Craig O’hAinifin were in great form. They were level 1-6 each after 4 minutes. Craig O’hAinifin gave the winners the lead in the 36th minute and they dominated the rest of the game By the 42nd minute they led 1-8 to 1- 7. Entering the final quarter Blake O’Murchu had a very good goal for the ‘Mon’ with Evan O’Siochan following with a quick point 2-9 to 1- 7. The winners added four more points by Craig O’hAinifin (2) Greg O’hEalaithe and Donal Gunning. Pobal Scoil had a goal by Declan Dalton who came outfield to take a free and passed to Cathal Deane who returned to Dalton who struck a late goal.
