Mayfield (Cork) 2-18 Ballyduff Lower (Waterford) 3-10

Mayfield have joined the elite band of clubs to win the Munster junior hurling championship after the Cork side reigned supreme in Mallow yesterday.

Writing themselves into the history books, they collected the Nealon Cup for the first time. The trophy remains on in the Rebel county following Dungourney’s success in 2015.

And there was no doubting the winners’ supremacy, as they delivered a powerful performance on the big stage. This was their greatest test to date in the provincial competition, but they were primed. They were at their very best, excelling, particularly in the second-half.

Their fitness and speed enabled them to run at the Ballyduff Lower defence at every opportunity. They were comfortable victors, but credit to the Déise side, they remained resilient to the finish, clawing back some of the deficit with two late goals.

Minus regular wing-back Gavin Looney due to work commitments, the outstanding David O’Neill set the tone for Mayfield with a blistering goal after just eight minutes. The wing-forward was cleverly picked out by his opposite wing Shane Kelly.

However, Ballyduff Lower were equal to the challenge and were on level terms at the end of the opening quarter when Jack Lyons managed to squeeze the sliotar past Richard O’Keeffe, 1-4 apiece.

The Waterford champions then edged ahead through the accuracy of free-taker Brian Power, but Mayfield wrestled back the initiative when the hard-working Shane Duggan managed to kick to the net on 19 minutes. The Cork representatives went on to outscore their opponents five points to two on the approach to half-time. Nicky Kelly found the range with some excellent frees, while Power, Eoin Cummins and Declan Cheasty were on target for Ballyduff Lower. Mayfield led 2-10 to 1-8 at the change of ends.

With both sides wearing their county colours due to a clash of jerseys, Mayfield took the game to Ballyduff Lower after the restart. O’Neill and Nicky Kelly exchanged points with Power and Calum Lyons but once Mayfield hit their stride there was no stopping them.

The Waterford outfit were also undone by indiscipline with yellow cards issued in quick succession to full-back John O’Leary and centre-back Calum Lyons. With 10 minutes remaining, Mayfield had raced 2-15 to 1-10 clear courtesy of points from Shane Duggan, Kevin Punch and Nicky Kelly – the contest almost decided.

Superb all over the field they were, with five-star performances from all six defenders who ably negated the attacking threat of Ballyduff Lower, especially their danger-man and former county star, Jack Kennedy.

However, as the clock counted down into the final five minutes, the two teams were reduced to 14 men. Both Brian O’Learys received straight red cards from referee Damien Fox – the Ballyduff Lower player only a couple of minutes on the field.

Despite Kennedy and Adam Carroll goaling for Ballyduff Lower in the 56th and 63rd minutes, and the magnificent Nicky Kelly blasting a penalty off the crossbar, Mayfield were in command. Their final score from play brought a huge cheer as Patrick Duggan kicked the sliotar over the bar.

Scorers for Mayfield: N Kelly (0-10, 0-6 frees), D O’Neill (1-4), S Duggan (1-2), K Punch and P Duggan (0-1 each).

Scorers for Ballyduff Lower: Brian Power (0-5 frees), J Kennedy (1-1), J Lyons and A Carroll (1-0 each), C Lyons, C Dunphy, D Cheasty and E Cummins (0-1 each).

AIB Munster Junior Club Football Championship Final – Glenbeigh/Glencar (Kerry) 2-16 Gabriel Rangers (Cork) 0-10

Glenbeigh-Glencar (Kerry) defeated Gabriel Rangers (Cork) by 2-16 to 0-10 in the AIB Munster Junior Club Football Championship Final on Sunday December 4th at Mallow.

Glenbeigh-Glencar regroup to keep Kerry’s title grip

Report by Denis Hurley for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Glenbeigh/Glencar (Kerry) 2-16 Gabriel Rangers (Cork) 0-10

While last weekend’s Mid-Kerry SFC semi-final defeat to Beaufort wasn’t an enjoyable experience for Glenbeigh-Glencar, it did at least prove to be fuel for a response in the Munster Club JFC final yesterday.

A ninth win in a row for Kerry representatives in this championship was never really in doubt once a healthy early lead was augmented by goals from Caolim Teahan and Kieran Courtney to give them a 2-7 to 0-5 half-time lead.

The way his team bounced back from the 2-14 to 0-17 loss to Beaufort heartened manager Aidan O’Shea.

“We were very disappointed, we were beaten convincingly on the day,” he said. “We kicked 17 points and we played poorly, we weren’t working the ball well. I don’t know if it was the reason we won today but it probably didn’t hurt to focus the minds for today.”

As the Kerry champions hit the ground running, their Cork opponents couldn’t find the fluency which had brought them to this stage. Goals at vital times had been the currency of the Ballydehob/Schull side, but they found themselves frustrated.

“We thought that they’d bring a man back,” O’Shea said, “so we decided to park a man in front of the full-back. The boys inside are very dangerous so we didn’t want easy ball going into them.”

The closest sight that Gabriels got of goal was in the 23rd minute, after Gavan O’Grady’s excellent point had followed Caolim Teahan’s opening goal to make it 1-7 to 0-3. Captain Mark Cronin found Eddie Goggin, who had scored ten goals this year, but under pressure from full-back Jeremiah Hoare – not all legal, Gabriels felt – he screwed his shot wide.

Seán Kelleher did point a free after that to bring them back to within six points, but immediately after that they were cut open as Darran O’Sullivan and O’Grady linked up to allow Kieran Courtney to find the net.

A Cronin free just before half-time gave hope to the sizeable Gabriels support among the 3,118 present, but an eight-point interval deficit was to extend further on the resumption as Tommy Cahill’s free was followed by O’Grady points, the first of these following a good win from the excellent delivery by the tireless Danny O’Sullivan.

From such a position, Glenbeigh-Glencar never looked like being shaken and sub Daniel Griffin might have got a third goal on the three-quarter mark only to fire across the face.

Gabriels needed a goal and sub Ronan Roycroft had a half-chance well dealt with by Rory O’Connor, with the goalkeeper then doing well to prevent Kelleher getting on the end of Gerard O’Callaghan’s ball in.

With subs Bernard Murphy and Pádraig Griffin coming on to add to the Glenbeigh-Glencar tally, they saw out the game in the commanding fashion they had started it. Captain Colin McGillycuddy and Fergal Griffin at midfield laid the foundation and though an early two-point lead was wiped out by Gabriels, four in a row – Cahill with two and O’Grady and Teahan also on target as Darran O’Sullivan dictated play – gave them a cushion.

Cronin did pull one back for Gabriels, but then Danny O’Sullivan, O’Grady and Courtney moved the ball at pace to set up Teahan. From there, they pushed on convincingly. More silverware could follow in the spring.

Scorers for Glenbeigh-Glencar: G O’Grady (0-7, 1 free), T Cahill (0-6, 4 frees), Caolim Teahan (1-1), K Courtney (1-0), P Griffin, B Murphy (0-1 each).

Scorers for Gabriel Rangers: M Cronin (0-6, 3 frees), S Kelleher (0-2, frees), G O’Callaghan, C Moynihan 0-1 each.

GAA Inter-Provincial Hurling Semi-Final – Munster 3-21 Ulster 0-15

Munster defeated Ulster by 3-21 to 0-15 in the GAA Inter-Provincial Hurling Semi-Final on Sunday December 11th at Semple Stadium Thurles.

Inter-Provincial Hurling Semi-Final

Munster 3-21 Ulster 0-15

By Jackie Cahill at Semple Stadium for

Tipperary stars Seamus Callanan and Mikey Breen combined for 2-8 as Munster cruised past Ulster and into a GAA Inter-Provincial Hurling Final clash with Leinster.

Callanan played a captain’s part, registering 1-7 as Munster had little difficulty in scoring a 15-point victory.

Breen’s first half goal helped to separate the sides at the break before Munster, managed by former Clare star Anthony Daly, pulled away in the second period.

Callanan, All-Ireland final man-of-the-match against Kilkenny in September, netted in the 40th minute following a defensive error before Waterford’s Bennett brothers combined for a goal in stoppage time, Shane providing the assist for Stephen to finish.

Munster led by 1-10 to 0-7 at half-time, two Barry Nash points after his introduction opening up a six-point interval margin approaching the break.

For much of the first half, it was Breen’s third-minute goal that effectively separated the teams as Ulster battled gamely. They had a fine first half performance from Armagh’s Conor Corvan, a late call-up to the starting line-up who registered three points from play before the break.

But Munster, overall, had the more classy operators and had little difficulty in keeping their opponents at arm’s length. Callanan, operating at full-forward and captaining the Munster team, had four pointed frees in the first half, with Tipperary team-mate Breen adding a point to his early goal.

Aside from Corvan, Antrim’s Ciarán Clarke was another to show up well for Ulster in the first half, scoring three of his four points from placed balls. Munster had little difficulty after the break– outscoring Ulster by 2-11 to 0-8 to book their place in the decider.

Scorers for Munster: S Callanan 1-7 (6fs), M Breen 1-1, B Nash 0-4, Stephen Bennett 1-0, J O’Dwyer 0-2, D Byrnes, T Murnane, S Dowling, P Maher, D Reidy, Shane Bennett and D McCormack 0-1 each.

By Paul Keane at Parnell Park for

Peter Harte showed all his class at Parnell Park with 1-8 to secure Ulster’s Inter-Provincial Final place.

Pete McGrath’s northerners are expected take on Connacht in the decider and will fancy their chances of a 32nd title on the basis of this strong display. They did stutter early on, but effectively wrapped up the semi-final win with an unanswered scoring burst of 2-7 in the second quarter of the game.

Aidan Breen and Enda Lynn scored the goals in that period while Tyrone talisman Harte added their third from the penalty spot at the death. Stefan Campbell of Armagh was excellent too and kicked five points from play as well as playing a key role in winning the penalty and earning a number of frees that were converted by Harte and Tomas Corrigan.

Ulster struggled initially and fell 0-4 to 0-1 and 0-5 to 0-2 down in the opening quarter as Paul Whyte, a late addition to the Munster team, helped himself to three points. Kerry’s Tommy Walsh, who left the Kingdom panel earlier in the year, also contributed a point though things soon turned sour for Ger O’Sullivan’s Munster outfit.

They only added one more score, a converted free by Whyte, for the rest of the half as Ulster weighed in with that 2-7 burst. It was all Ulster for around 15 minutes and Breen sparked them into life with a neat goal when he slid a low shot past Evan Comerford following a Connor McAliskey pass. Munster struggled to cope with Ulster’s direct running and conceded a series of frees that Harte easily converted.

Campbell scored two eye catching points from the left wing and their second-goal in injury-time put them in the clear. Lynn’s strike was a beauty and McAliskey was again the provider before the Derry man chipped expertly over a defender and the Munster ‘keeper to the top corner of the net.

Munster trailed 2-9 to 0-6 at the break and were without captain and Kerry man Aidan O’Mahony who was black carded approaching half-time. Munster were better after the restart and outscored Ulster by 1-3 to 0-2, the goal coming from Clare’s Jamie Malone, to reduce the gap to just three points after 43 minutes, 2-11 to 1-11.

Ulster finished the game strongly though and Harte nailed some cracking scores to help reassert Ulster’s authority. The penalty award came after great work by Campbell who set Mark Bradley free and when he was hauled down by Colm O’Driscoll, Harte did the rest to leave Ulster with a slightly flattering eight-point win.

Scorers for Ulster: P Harte 1-8 (1-0 pen, 4fs), S Campbell 0-5, T Corrigan 0-4 (2fs), E Lynn 1-0, A Breen 1-0.

Scorers for Munster: P Whyte 0-4 (3fs), J Malone 1-0, D Tubridy 0-3, I Corbett 0-2, G Brennan 0-1, T Walsh 0-1, B Fox 0-1, K Sexton 0-1, R Deane 0-1, C Sweeney 0-1 (f).

Interprovincial Hurling Final


By Jackie Cahill at Semple Stadium for

MUNSTER are GAA Interprovincial hurling champions for a 46th time after Anthony Daly’s men scored a four-point victory over Leinster in Thurles this evening.

Clare’s up and coming star Aaron Shanagher scored a late goal to seal victory in front of 592 spectators at a wet and cold Semple Stadium.

Shanagher, brought on as 50th minute sub, netted nine minutes later to complete a come-from-behind victory for Daly’s men, delighting his manager and fellow Clare native.

Munster emptied their bench in the second half, and the subs made a big impact as Waterford’s Stephen Bennett lofted over the lead-score five minutes from time, before Shanagher’s late intervention sealed victory for Daly’s men.

Leinster, champions in 2014, were five points ahead on three occasions in the second half but Munster reeled them in to clinch a first crown since 2013, as they hit 1-5 without reply in the closing minutes.

Having drawn level at 1-14 apiece, when Clare’s David Reidy netted midway through the second half, Munster were rocked by the concession of a goal from Leinster’s next attack, Wexford’s Lee Chin on target as the sides traded goals within a minute.

But there was life left in Munster as they emptied the bench and Cork’s Alan Cadogan made a big impact in the second half – knifing three points from play – as Limerick’s Barry Nash chipped in with a brace.

With the sides deadlocked late on, Waterford’s Stephen Bennett landed the lead score from five minutes from time before Shanagher’s goal sealed it.

Leinster were 1-11 to 0-10 clear at half-time, having fallen four points down in the early exchanges. Reid was Leinster’s leading light in the opening half, hitting 1-2 of his 1-4 from play, as Kilkenny team-mate Walter Walsh and Laois man Charles Dwyer picked off two points each.

Seamus Callanan had two early points as Munster surged into a 0-4 to 0-0 advantage within seven minutes but Leinster, with Reid prominent, worked their way back into contention and were level at 0-6 apiece midway through the half. A pair of Dan McCormack points gave Munster some breathing space again but a run of 1-3 without reply from Leinster, playing without suspended Colin Fennelly and concussed Ryan O’Dwyer, put them in the ascendancy.

Reid’s goal arrived five minutes before half-time as he cut in from the left touchline before firing in a shot that squirted beneath Darren Gleeson and into the Killinan End net. Reid added a free and Leinster were four points clear – 1-10 to 0-9 – before Callanan (free) and Dwyer traded points before the break.

But Munster were unlucky not to raise a green flag of their own in the first half when Reidy scorched a shot off James Dempsey’s crossbar in the 13th minute, with Callanan on hand to pick up the pieces for a point.

Scorers for Munster: S Callanan 0-7 (4f, 1 65), D Reidy 1-2, A Shanagher 1-0, A Cadogan 0-3, D McCormack & B Nash 0-2 each, D Byrnes, J Barron, M Breen & Stephen Bennett 0-1 each.
