It wasn't a great week weather wise for training and matches, however, three of our underage groups lined out last week. The U11's played their final hurling match in the Town & Country League on Tuesday night and had a great win over Youghal.
The U12's played on Friday night against St. Oliver's. The lads had a great game and came out victorious. The lads won all their games in this league and are now Town & Country League winners. Well done to all the lads and their mentors.
The U15's played Abbeyside also on Friday night and came out with a two point win. They will now progress to the quarter final stage.
The U14's play their County Final on Saturday 29th August with a time and venue to be announced. Best of luck to all the team and their mentors on Saturday.
Another busy week for our Juvenile teams. On Tuesday last the U11's played St. Oliver's in what was a very competitive game for the boys and ended in a draw at full time. The U15's played on Wednesday against a very strong De La Salle side. The the U12's lined out against Abbeyside on Friday night and had a hard battle to the end to come out with a win. The U15's played again on Saturday against another very strong team in The Brickey Rangers. The U13's played away on Monday night to Ballyduff Upper and came home with a win. So all in all another very busy week for the boys with some defeats and some wins, but it's great to have all teams back playing and enjoying themselves.
Best of luck to Lismore Seniors who play their first game of 2020 this Saturday.
Lismore U10s played the Brickeys in Bushy Park last Mon night in what was a very close game. Our lads played really well on the night.
Our U9s travelled to Killeagh on Sunday and took part in a tournament against Killeagh, Carrigtwohill & Youghal. We did well in all matches in what was a very enjoyable morning's hurling. Thanks to Killeagh for the invite.
The U11 team travelled to Abbeyside on Wed evening last and played Abbeyside in a very competitive challenge game. Thanks to Abbeyside for the game.
Our U14s played Dungarvan at home last Monday night in the quarter final of the County Championship. From previous history we knew this was going to be a close encounter and that is the way it turned out to be. From the start it was nip and tuck all the way but in the end Dungarvan ran out winners by two points. Well done to all the U14 panel for the effort they put in all year and we will never forget their win in the Feile Na Gael. Many thanks to Aidan Ormonde & Paul Quinn for the huge amount of time and effort they put in all year with this age group.
Our U15s played De La Salle in the Div. 2 County Final in Fraher Field on Sun last. PLaying against a very strong De La Salle side our lads got a great start but soon came under alot of pressure. Our lads battled right to the end but unfortunately on this occassion De La Salle were too strong and were deserving winners in the end. Well done to them. Thanks to all panel members & to Aidan & Paul for their great work put in with this age group.
U16S travelled to Ballyduff Lower last Thursday night and took on Portlaw in the group play off. From the start the lads took the game to their opponents and worked hard throughout. In the end we were deserving winners on a scoreline of 3-17 to 2-07.
Many thanks to Anthony & Nora Kelleher and to Michael & Patricia Morrissey who sponsored our U15 Co. Finalists for Sunday's match. Through their kindness and generosity all panel members were treated to a meal in Lismore House Hotel on Sunday after the game
Naomh Chartaigh U10s played Fourmilewater away in the Town & Country League last Monday night and played really well in a very competitive game.
Our U13s took on An Gaeltacht in the Div 2 Western final in Fraher Field last Sat morning. After a slow start our lads were well behind at half time. In the second half our lads came out with more purpose and played really well but in the end the half time lead that An Gaeltacht had built up was the difference and they ran out deserving winners on the day. Well done to An Gaeltacht and also to our lads for reaching the final.
Our U15s played An Gaeltacht in the Div 2 Western Final last Mon night in Fraher Field. In the first half our lads played super hurling and built up a commanding lead. An Gaeltacht came back at us in the second half but we dug in and ran out winners on a scoreline of 3 09 to 2 07. Afterwards our Captain Oisin O Gorman received the winning plaque. County Final is fixed for Sunday 18th Sept in Walsh Park.
We took on An Gaeltacht in the U16 Championship at home last Fri evening. This was our first game with almost a full panel and our lads played really well from start to finish in what was a very tough, competitive game to run out winners on a score that read 2 16 to 1 13. Well done to all involved.
Best wishes to Dylan Feeney who is out of action for a few weeks after breaking his ankle last Mon night in the U15 match.
The Paddy Whelan u 14 Hurling Tournament took place on Saturday 28th March in Lismore. Taking part this year were Naomh Chartaigh, Cois Bhride, Killeagh and Mount Sion. In very windy conditions Naomh Chartaigh and Killeagh reached the final. Playing with the wind in the first half Killeagh lead by 1-8 to 1-1 at half-time. Naomh Chartaigh fought back bravely in the second half to force the game into extra time. After extra time Naomh Chartaigh emerged victorious on a score of 3-6 to 1-11. The games were played in a great spirit, in what were very testing conditions. It was the second year in a row that Naomh Chartaigh has won the Tournament. The Chairman of the club, Robbie O’Sullivan, paid tribute to all those present for their efforts on the day and he thanked the Whelan Family for their support for the tournament.
