Walsh Park confirmed as venue for Munster SHC 2019

Press Release – Walsh Park confirmed as venue for Munster SHC 2019

The CCC of the Munster Council has (today) confirmed that both Waterford’s home games in the 2019 Munster Senior Hurling Championship (on May 12th v Clare & June 2nd v Limerick), will take place at Walsh Park in Waterford.

Earlier today, officers of the Munster Council and Waterford County Board met to discuss the use of the venue, following confirmation by GAA Health and Safety Consultants that the capacity for both games will be set at 11,000.

Munster Council Chairman, Liam Lenihan said “I am pleased to confirm that Waterford will play their two home games in Walsh Park on May 12th and June 2nd. Today’s decision confirms that all of the competing counties in the 2019 Munster Senior Hurling Championship will have two home games. We look forward to working with Waterford County Board to ensure the smooth running of both fixtures scheduled at the Waterford City venue”.

Waterford County Board Chairman, Paddy Joe Ryan said “We are delighted to be playing our home games in Walsh Park on May 12th and June 2nd. Due to a structural issue at the ground in 2018, which significantly reduced the capacity, we didn’t play Senior Hurling Championship games at the ground. However, this issue has since been resolved and the capacity set at 11,000. These games will be a big boost for the county and local businesses and we look forward to welcoming the supporters of Clare and Limerick to Waterford City. We are embarking on a redevelopment of the ground, which will bring the capacity to 15,500, including 9,000 seats.”

St Brendan’s and Chorcha Dhuibhne must do it again after Corn Uí Mhuirí final ends level

Report By Eoghan Cormican for the Irish Examiner newspaper

St Brendan’s Killarney 1-9 – 0-12 PS Chorcha Dhuibhne

St Brendan’s and Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne will meet again next Saturday after today’s Corn Uí Mhuirí final finished level.

Behind by 0-5 to 0-2 at the break, St Brendan’s hit stride early in the second period, outscoring their opponents by 1-5 to 0-3 in the 12 minutes after the restart to move into a 1-7 to 0-8 lead. Emmet O’Shea supplied the St Brendan’s goal, with O’Shea and D’Arcy kicking two apiece during this spell of supremacy.

Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne stemmed the tide with three-in-a-row from Dylan Ó Geibheannaigh, Ruaidhrí Ó Beaglaoich and Cathal Ó Beaglaoich to go back in front. The Killarney school did manage to once more sneak back into pole position, the final score of this final kicked by Dingle’s Ruaidhrí Ó Beaglaoich on 55 minutes. Both sides had chances to nab a winner, but neither could land that crucial score.

St Brendan’s would have been disgusted to have found themselves in arrears at the break given they dominated possession and territory. Gary McGrath’s charges, though, time and again let themselves down with a litany of poor wides and a hesitancy when taking aim at the Dingle posts.

The Killarney school finished the half with six wides. There was also three kicks which were blocked down and another point effort which dropped short.

Up the other end, Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne were a picture of efficiency. Steven Ó Conchúir and Dylan Ó Geibheannaigh sniped a pair apiece, with goalkeeper Deividas Uosis coming forward to convert a free. The Dingle shot-stopper, when called upon to kick a second free on 29 minutes, was off target, their first wide of the game.

St Brendan’s economy in front of goal improved sufficiently in the second period to haul themselves back into contention.

Scorers for Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne: D Ó Geibheannaigh (0-4, 0-1 free); R Ó Beaglaoich (0-2 frees), C Ó Beaglaoich, S Ó Conchúir (0-2 each); D Uosis (0-1 free), S Óg Ó Moráin (0-1 each)

Superior goalscoring helps Clare claim early silverware with win over Tipp

Report By Michael Moynihan for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Clare 4-19 – 1-18 Tipperary

Early silverware to Clare, who picked up the Co-Op Superstores Munster SHL trophy yesterday in the Gaelic Grounds before 4,531 spectators. The Banner’s goalscoring ability proved crucial in an entertaining game.

Tipperary started with the breeze, and a sideline cut pointed by Jason Forde, while Clare hit early wides before Colin Guilfoyle tied the game up. A Seamus Callanan 65 was the other score in a low-key opening ten minutes.

Callanan (free), Alan Flynn and Jason Forde pushed Tipp’s lead to 0-4 to 0-1 when Clare struck on 17 minutes – a long delivery spilled to Cathal McInerney near the square, and he buried a goal: 1-1 to 0-5.

The game picked up in intensity. Diarmuid Ryan levelled for Clare and they goaled again, a sweet passing move involving Michael O’Neill and Cathal McInerney ended with Tony Kelly batting to the net. Forde pointed on the puck-out and Callanan added a free: 2-2 to 0-7 on 25 minutes.

Ryan and Niall Deasy (free) pushed Clare three ahead by the half-hour, but Forde, Flynn and Mark Kehoe levelled with three on the spin. There was time for Ryan Taylor and Forde to swap points, leaving it 0-11 to 2-5 at the break.

Clare resumed with a Shane Golden point and a Colin Guilfoyle goal from close range after a good run, with Callanan pointing a free in reply. A Kelly point and it was 3-7 to 0-12 on 40 minutes.

Clare were now on top – a long-range effort from Kelly went all the way to the net on 44 minutes and Ryan, Deasy, Taylor and Guilfoyle points pushed them to 4-13; all Tipperary had in response was a Mark Kehoe point, making it 4-13 to 0-13 at the three quarter stage.

The Banner duly pushed on for the win, despite a late goal by Tipp sub Dan McCormack.

Munster Hurling League – Clare 2-20 Waterford 3-16

Clare beat Waterford to line up final clash with Tipperary

Report by Michael Moynihan for the Irish Examiner newspaper

Waterford 3-16 – 2-20 Clare

Clare will face Tipperary in the Co-Op Superstores Munster SHL final, having beaten Waterford in Fraher Field, Dungarvan in front of 3,039 spectators.

The home side defended the scoreboard end in the first half and faced the breeze, but Clare dominated immediately, hitting five points in the first five minutes, Shane Golden’s long range effort the best of them.

Stephen Bennett opened Waterford’s account (free) but the home side needed keeper Billy Nolan to save from Aaron Shanagher to stay in touch. Golden, Diarmuid Ryan and Aidan McCarthy pushed Clare 0-9 to 0-2 ahead on 15 minutes.

Niall Deasy and Ryan tacked on more points from distance before Nolan saved well again, this time from Michael O’Neill; Clare keeper Donal Tuohy saved smartly from Stephen Bennett when the ball went downfield.

Ryan added his fifth from play before Bennett had his fourth free, but then a Shanagher effort dropped short and Clare captain Tony Kelly beat Nolan to the ball before goaling – 1-12 to 0-4 on 26 minutes.

Tuohy denied Tommy Ryan a goal late on but then Stephen Bennett won an Austin Gleeson delivery and slalomed through for a goal on 32 minutes, though there was time for one more Clare point, a Deasy free: 1-14 to 1-5 at the half.

Bennett resumed with another free but Golden responded in kind, and Waterford hit three wides in a row after that. Deasy knocked over the frees for Clare but Waterford, through Bennett, cut the lead to 1-17 to 1-11 at the three-quarter mark.

Kevin Moran, on as a sub, made it a five point game, but Kelly steadied the ship for Clare. Bennett (free) and sub Mikey Kearney cut the lead to four, only for another sub – Podge Collins of Clare – to find Colin Guilfoyle with a clever pass. Guilfoyle’s goal strike made it 2-18 to 1-15 with less than ten minutes left.

Clare saw it home from there, though Waterford kept knocking on the door for another goal and were eventually rewarded with a Tommy Ryan strike and a Bennett goal from a free that came too late to affect the outcome.

Scorers for Waterford: Stephen Bennett (2-12, 1-10 frees); T. Ryan (1-1); DJ Foran, K. Moran, M. Kearney (0-1 each).

Scorers for Clare: D. Ryan (0-6); N. Deasy (3 frees, 0-5), T. Kelly (1-2); C. Guilfoyle (1-1); S. Golden (0-3); A. McCarthy, R. Taylor, D. Conroy (0-1 each).

Munster Hurling League – Tipperary 4-14 Limerick 2-17

Tipperary defeated Limerick by 4-14 to 2-17 in Round 1 of the Co-Op Superstores Munster Hurling League on Friday December 14th at the Gaelic Grounds Limerick.

Tipperary give Liam Sheedy winning start against All-Ireland champions Limerick

Report By Eoghan Cormican for the Irish Examiner newspaper
Limerick 2-17 – 4-14 Tipperary

A crowd of 3,224 is not what you expect for a first-round Munster SHL fixture on a cold and, at times, wet evening in mid-December. Then again, this wasn’t your run-of-the-mill pre-season blowout.

In one corner, you had a county who had not lost a competitive fixture since June 17, their string of victories thereafter captured and documented in the yearbook and DVD which were on sale underneath the Mackey Stand before throw-in.

In the opposing corner, you had a county who had not played a competitive fixture since June 10 and were without a win since March 31. Ironically enough, that victory had come at the expense of the team they provided with a guard of honour to this evening.

The spoils, in the end, went to Liam Sheedy and Tipperary; the former enjoying his first win as Tipp manager in eight years, his players bridging an eight-month gap to the last occasion they came out on top. Eight was also the number of players on the Limerick team who started the All-Ireland final win.

Tipperary, heavily reliant on Seamus Callanan for scores and having not found the target from play until the 14th minute, led by 3-6 to 0-11 at the break. Their four-point advantage was eked out in the three minutes before half-time, the visitors to the Gaelic Grounds taking their hosts for an unanswered 2-1.

With Aaron Gillane and Colin Ryan both having swollen their personal tallies to 0-3 to move the hosts in front (0-9 to 1-5) for the first time on the half-hour mark, Tipperary fired back with Callanan taking advantage of a Dan Morrissey slip to register his second goal. The delivery for that score was provided by Dan McCormack and it was roles reversed in the ensuing passage of play as Callanan teed up the Borris-Ileigh man for a point.

On 34 minutes, Sheedy’s charges bagged their third goal, Jason Forde and Callanan putting Mark Kehoe clear, with the All-Ireland U21 winner duly obliging.

Unfortunately, this three-minute burst of scores and fairly fluent hurling which accompanied it was out of kilter with an opening half which produced 20 wides (11 to Limerick, nine to Tipperary).

The visitors kept up the pace upon the change of ends, a Callanan free followed by a Patrick Bonner Maher goal on 37 minutes which shoved the Premier men 4-7 to 0-11 ahead. Not since January of this year had John Kiely’s charges been hit for four or more goals.

The game continued to move away from the All-Ireland champions as another Callanan free and a point from debutant Colin English put nine between the sides.

David Reidy buried the sliotar past Brian Hogan at the end of a free-flowing move involving fellow half-forwards Gearoid Hegarty and Barry O’Connell to put a dent in their opponents’ lead. And while Gillane and O’Connell succeeded in paring the margin to five (4-10 to 1-15), four in a row from the blue and gold took them across the line.

Limerick peppered Hogan’s goal with shots at the end, but only one, from Gillane, found its way across the white paint.

Tipp back to winning ways, Limerick back motoring. Everyone, well almost everyone, left satisfied.

Scorers for Tipperary: S Callanan (2-8, 0-7 frees, 1-0 pen); P Maher, M Kehoe (1-0 each); R Maher, J Forde (0-2 each); C English, D McCormack (0-1 each).

Scorers for Limerick: A Gillane (1-8, 0-6 frees); D Reidy (1-3); C Ryan (0-3); B O’Connell (0-2); A La Touche Cosgrave (0-1).

TIPPERARY: B Hogan; S O’Brien, J Barry, D Maher; B Heffernan, S Kennedy, T Fox; M Breen, W Connors; C English, R Maher, D McCormack; J Forde, S Callanan, M Kehoe
