Moycarkey Borris GAA Club Notes - 17th July 2017

"Tipperary Water" County Hurling League, Division (2) (Group 1) 
By Ed Donnelly
Moycarkey-Borris produced a dominant second half performance to secure a seven-point victory over Carrick Swan in the County Senior Hurling League played at a sunny Littleton field on Sunday afternoon.

Carrick Swan started the game well and raced in to a 0-5 to 0-3 lead after 10 minutes. Moycarkey’s chances were disrupted by two enforced substitutions in the opening stages as Matty Ryan and Niall O’Sullivan were forced off through injury to be replaced by Daniel Kirby and Kieran Cummins respectively. It didn’t take long for Kirby to get in to the action and he was fouled for a penalty in the 11th minute with Kieran Morris dispatching the resultant placed ball to the back of the net to give Moycarkey the lead, 1-4 to 0-5. Moycarkey stretched their lead to three points entering the second quarter but Carrick Swan took over the game for most of the remainder of the opening half, outscoring Moycarkey by 0-7 to 0-1 before a late Pat Carey point put the Carrick side in front at the interval by 0-13 to 1-8.

Carrick scored two of the first three points of the second half to go in to a three-point lead. However, Moycarkey would totally take over the game at this point, scoring an unanswered 1-7 over an 18-minute period to race in a seven-point lead. Kieran Morris was in accurate form throughout this purple patch while Anthony McKelvey scored the Moycarkey goal. During this period of play, Kevin Moran and the Carrick Swan wing-back received straight red cards following a fracas involving several players. The scores kept coming for Moycarkey as the home side took an 11-point lead heading in to the final stages. Carrick Swan to their credit kept pushing for goals to get back in to the game and they were duly rewarded with a green flag in the 59th minute. It was too little, too late however as Moycarkey were seven points in front at the final whistle.

Moycarkey-Borris: Bill McCormack; Niall O’Sullivan, Phil Kelly, Kevin Moran; Conor Hayes, James Power, Chris McCullagh; Niall Heffernan, Tom Hayes (0-1); Pat Carey (0-3), David Morris, Brian Moran (0-1); Matty Ryan, Anthony McKelvey (1-1), Kieran Morris (1-15, 0-12 frees, 1-0 penalty)
Subs: Daniel Kirby for Ryan (7m, injured), Kieran Cummins for O’Sullivan (8m, injured), Anthony Healy for Brian Moran (57m), Ailbe Power for McKelvey (59m)

Commiserations to Moycarkey Borris who were defeated by Holycross Ballycahill in the Roskeen Construction Mid Tipp Junior A Hurling Championship on Friday, last on a score line; Holycross Ballycahill 1-19 Moycarkey-Borris 0-12

Under 16 Footballers
Golden Kilfeacle GAA Club was the venue for the Under 16 A County Football Final on a hot and windy Saturday afternoon. Moycarkey’s County Final came on foot of a victory over Inane Rovers in the Semi Final on a score line of Moycarkey-Borris 1-17 Inane Rovers 2-8. Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen were the opponents having won the other Semi Final.

Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen were straight to the scoreboard within the first minute when they raised the green flag which was to be shortly followed by a point for Christopher English. Darragh Brennan, Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen was next to the score board when he hit the ball between the posts for another point. By the sixth minute Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen had a goal and two points and Moycarkey were still searching for their scores. Kyle Shelly did not leave them waiting and in the seventh Moycarkey had their first score to be followed by a pointed free in the ninth, Moycarkey had settled. However, it was the twenty first minute before the next score a green flag for Kyle Shelly. The next Moycarkey score would come from some excellent teamwork when a ball caught by Max Hackett passed to Michael O’Donnell would find itself in the path of Kyle who expertly hand punched the ball over his head into the back of the goal mouth. Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen’s Christopher English pointed to bring the margin back to two before Kyle’s hat trick of goals came in the twenty sixth minute. Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen added a further three points to their score line to go in at half time Moycarkey Borris 3-2 Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen 1-6.

As anyone knows a margin of two points in any game is not enough so both teams would have to work hard in the second half and again Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen were first to the score board with two quick points in the opening minutes to level proceedings. Kevin Hayes pointed Moycarkey’s first point of the second half to regain the lead for Moycarkey. Another pointed free from Kyle Shelly restored the two point margin. The game was about to change when Kevin Hayes, a sterling player for Moycarkey received a black card for a tackle. Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen soon equalised when Christopher English and Darragh Brennan scored two points in the twelfth and thirteenth minute. As the game turned into the final quarter John Coffey put Moycarkey back in front with a point, just the score they needed as this drove the team on further with points from substitution Andrew Alexander and Kyle Shelly. Moycarkey held the three point margin but Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen worked tirelessly to get a score and in the twenty fourth minute were rewarded when Darragh Brennan netted the ball for them to equalise. No matter what Moycarkey did the scores evaded them for the final minutes and Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen added a point to claim the victory; Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen 2-11 Moycarkey Borris 3-7.
Moycarkey Borris Team - Caylum Gooney; Lewis Kearney, Peter Melbourne (C), Owen Sheridan; Brian O’Callaghan, Darren Flood, Kyle Ryan; Kevin Hayes, Dylan Shaw; Shane Burke, Michael O’Donnell, Max Hackett; Tom Maher, Kyle Shelly, John Coffey.
Moycarkey Borris scorers – Kyle Shelly 3-4 (0-3 frees), Kevin Hayes 0-1, John Coffey 0-1, Andrew Alexander 0-1.

Moycarkey Borris commenced their Minor A Hurling Championship on Wednesday last in Clonmore with JK Brackens Óg as their opponents. Moycarkey started strong with a Max Hackett point in the opening minute but it was equalised quickly by JK Brackens Óg, still within that minute Anthony McKelvey rattled the net for a goal for Moycarkey. JK Brackens Óg followed with two points and Max Hackett in the eighth, kept Moycarkey ahead with another point. Points were traded but Brackens raised their own green flag in the seventeenth minute to push forward JK Brackens Óg 1-4 Moycarkey Borris 1-3. The game was nip and tuck for the next quarter with both sides adding three further points to their score line until in the final minute of injury time JK Brackens Óg added two unanswered points to go in at half time, JK Brackens Óg 1-9 Moycarkey Borris 1-6.

The second half opened with the same intensity as the first half with four points added to each score line in the first quarter. However, JK Brackens Óg then hit a purple patch with three unanswered points to stretch the margin to six points.

"Tipperary Water" County Hurling League, Division (2) (Group 1)
Moycarkey-Borris travelled to play Ballingarry in the County Hurling League on Sunday last. Ballingarry played with the aid of the wind in the first half but it was Moycarkey who started better with points by Kieran Morris (free) and Paul Dempsey putting the visitors in front by 0-2 to 0-1 after five minutes. Eventually, Ballingarry took a grip on the game and scored the next five points to race in to a 0-6 to 0-2 lead at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter was more even, as Kieran Morris kept Moycarkey in touch with four pointed frees. As the wide count for Ballingarry increased, the half-time score of 0-9 to 0-6 in Ballingarry’s favour was not insurmountable.

Moycarkey and Ballingarry shared the first six scores of the second half before Moycarkey reeled off three points without reply from Kieran Morris (2) and Mossy Bracken to level the scores at 0-12 apiece entering the final quarter. Dylan Walsh put Ballingarry in front soon afterwards before Paul Dempsey equalising for Moycarkey in the 51st minute. The final ten minutes would determine the ultimate outcome but it was Moycarkey who were held scoreless during this period. Ballingarry managed to score the final two points of the game along with five wides as the South side dominated possession in the final stages. Moycarkey did have a chance of a goal in the closing stages but were unable to convert the chance and Ballingarry took the spoils on a final scoreline of 0-15 to 0-13.

Moycarkey-Borris: Bill McCormack; Niall O’Sullivan, Phil Kelly, Kevin Moran; Daniel Kirby, Chris McCullagh, Conor Hayes; Mossy Bracken (0-1), Niall Heffernan; Pat Carey (0-1), David Morris, Matty Ryan; Kieran Morris (0-9, 0-7 frees), Paul Dempsey (0-2), Pat Ralph

Moycarkey Borris earned themselves a County Semi Final when they overcame Durlas Óg by 11 points in the Mid Tipperary Under 16 Championship Final. The Semi Final against Inane Rovers was played on Saturday last in Newport. Moycarkey were slow to start and had to wait until the tenth minute for their first score, a pointed free by Kyle Shelly. Another free in the thirteenth minute helped to kick start Moycarkey’s scoring and by the half time they had a margin of six points; Moycarkey-Borris 0-10 Inane Rovers 0-4.

Moycarkey opened their second half scoring with a goal from Max Hackett strengthening their advantage. However, Inane Rovers increased the intensity during the second half and two goals helped to keep them within Moycarkey’s reach.

Moycarkey Borris GAA Club Notes - 5th June 2017

O'Mahoney Print Mid Tipperary Junior Hurling League Division 1
Moycarkey Borris supporters travelled to Holycross on Friday last for the O’Mahoney Print Mid Tipperary Junior Hurling League Division 1 Final. Moycarkey Borris reached the Final following a walk over by Upperchurch Drombane and Holycross Ballycahill were their opponents. Brian Moran, Captain won the toss and opted to play in to the town end but wind was not a factor on this sunny summers evening.

Brian Moran was first to register a score with a point in the first minute. A pointed free from Holycross’s, Paidi Comerford equalised in the next minute. David Morris was next with a point and supporters were looking forward to an intense game. In the fifth minute, the equaliser came again and points were traded in the ninth minute by Brian Moran (free) and Padraig Russell. As the first quarter drew to a close Brian Moran and Paidi Comerford (free) traded points again to leave the score line Moycarkey Borris 0-4 Holycross Ballycahill 0-4. Moycarkey Borris hit a purple patch for the following ten minutes and unanswered points from Pat Carey, John Bergin, Paul Dempsey and Brian Moran gave Moycarkey a margin of four points. Yet again, this was short lived as Holycross Ballycahill reasserted themselves with three points for John Paul Butler (2) and Padraig Russell to go in at half time Moycarkey Borris 0-8 Holycross Ballycahill 0-7.

The second half started with two pointed frees from Holycross Ballycahill. Brian Moran replied from the puck out with a point to equalise. Points were traded again by Brian Moran and Paidi Comerford in the thirty ninth minute. There looked to be no separating of these teams until in the forty second minute Pat Carey rattled the net for Moycarkey. Paidi Comerford answered with a pointed free as the quarter turned on a score line Moycarkey Borris 1-10 Holycross Ballycahill 0-11. The sides traded two points each in the following seven minutes and Holycross reduced the margin to a point in the fifty fourth minute. Supporters waited to see if extra time would be required to separate the teams but Paul Dempsey took that notion from their heads when he raised the green flag for Moycarkey in the fifty eighth minute. Final score Moycarkey Borris 2-12 Holycross Ballycahill 0-14.

Brian Moran was presented with the Matty Connolly Plaque by Mid Board Chairman, Joe Kennedy who addressed the crowd saying that “the game was always in the balance until the last two minutes. Thanks to everyone who attended and to the players and their mentors”. Brian Moran thanked Holycross for a great game and wished them well in the future.

Seamus Ó Riain Cup Senior Hurling
Moycarkey Borris supporters travelled to The Ragg to watch their senior team play Templederry Kenyons in the Seamus Ó Riain Cup. Both teams met earlier this year in the County League and Templederry came out on top on that occasion.

Opening scores from Pat Ralph and David Morris in the first two minutes gave Moycarkey a good start however in the following minutes Templederry equalised with points from Adrian Ryan and Matthew Hogan. A pointed free in the fifth minute from Kieran Morris put Moycarkey ahead for a brief moment just as Templederry hit a purple patch. They added six unanswered points prior to the end of the first quarter, Templederry Kenyons 0-8 Moycarkey Borris 0-3.

Moycarkey’s Kieran Morris pointed a free in the nineteenth minute but Templederry quickly replied with two points from Darragh Carey and Adrian Ryan in the following minute. The next score was Templederry’s Padraig Ryan. In the twenty fifth minute Kieran Morris pointed another free for Moycarkey before Templederry added another. Two minutes after he left the bench, substitution Pat Carey scored Moycarkey’s final point of the half while Gearoid Ryan pointed for Templederry in the final minute leaving the half time score Templederry Kenyons 0-13 Moycarkey Borris 0-6.

The second half opened with a flurry of points for both teams, Moycarkey’s Kieran Morris added three frees accompanied by a Mossy Bracken point to give them four points in the first ten minutes. Templederry added four points to their score line keeping the seven point margin. In the following minutes Moycarkey added another two points from Kieran Morris (one free) before Adrian Ryan pointed the final score of the quarter. In the forty sixth minute Darragh Carey and Kieran Morris traded points. The second half so far was very tight and the scoring was tit for tat until the forty eighth minute when Darragh Carey returned the deficit returned to seven points and a further two points by Templederry increased the margin to nine points. A Rory Ryan point in the fifty fifth minute did little for Moycarkey as Darragh Carey and Eanna Murray widened the gap to ten points. In the final minute of the game one of the many balls dropped short was capitalised one when Anthony McKelvey raised the green flag for Moycarkey to finish the game, Templederry Kenyons 0-24 Moycarkey Borris 1-14.

Moycarkey Borris team – Bill McCormack; Kieran Cummins, James Power, Chris McCullagh; Kevin Moran, Pat Molloy, Tom Hayes; Mossy Bracken (0-1), David Morris (0-1); Niall Heffernan, Pat Ralph (0-1), Conor Hayes; Rory Ryan (0-1), Kieran Morris (0-9, 8 frees), Anthony McKelvey (1-0).

Cumann na mBunscol Finals
Two Mile Borris National School

By John Corcoran, Two Mile Borris
On Thursday, 25th May Two Mile Borris National School captured the Under 11 B County Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol Hurling title after defeating Ballina National School with a score line of 3-9 to 1-4 in Semple Stadium on one of the hottest days of the year. First half goals from Captain Mikey Carroll and brothers Tom and Eamon Ryan had Two Mile Borris in front at half time by 3-4 to 0-3. A strong Ballina second half comeback was prevented by some great saves by goalkeeper Louis Coughlan and some excellent defending by David Costigan and Sarah Corcoran. Some great scores by the accurate Jack Hayes and a long range score by David Costigan kept the scoreboard moving for Two Mile Borris to ensure that last years narrow Final loss was but a distant memory. This was a great performance by the whole panel of players, who earlier in the year had also won the Under 11 B County Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol Football Final. Thanks to teacher Liam McCullagh and coach Morgan Lanigan for their excellent coaching and work with the team throughout the year.

Moycarkey National School
By Robert White
With spectacular sunshine and an immaculate playing surface, conditions could not have been better for the Under 11 Roinn C County Camogie Final on Thursday in Semple Stadium between Moycarkey N.S. and Corville N.S.. Both teams came into the game in fantastic form with Moycarkey having won their blitz having only conceded one point in four games to reach the final while Corville N.S. were on a roll with teams contesting four different county hurling and camogie finals this year. Nerves and excitement were rolled into one for the superbly supported players as the referee threw in the ball to start the game. From the start the girls from Moycarkey showed they meant business as within the opening five minutes they were six points up thanks to two goals from Caoimhe O’Sullivan. Both Caoimhe and the tenacious Kate Dowling were a constant handful for the Corville defence throughout the first half. Corville soon found their feet however and it took some excellent defending from Mia O’Meara and Shauna Flanagan in the defence to keep a dangerous Corville attack at bay. Shortly before half time the industrious Ellen Maher launched a long ball from midfield that found its way to into the Corville goal to leave the half time score Moycarkey 3-1 Corville 0-0.

The Moycarkey girls knew that they would face serious pressure from Corville in the second half and so it proved to be true as Corville piled on the pressure from the throw in. Captain Lucy Purcell steadied the ship however with a pointed free. Lucy O’Keeffe’s puckouts in the Moycarkey goal were unerring in their distance and accuracy and this was vital for the team throughout this spell of Corville pressure. With about ten minutes to go the Moycarkey girls kicked it into another gear however and thanks to another goal from Ellen Maher, two clinical finishes from Kate O’Keeffe and an expertly taken goal from Caoimhe Fitzgibbon the girls finished with an amazing 7-2. Corville never gave in and got their reward with a few minutes to go thanks to a fine goal. The strength of the whole Moycarkey panel was there to be seen as Aoife Maher, Sarah Murphy, Kelly McGann, Fiona Abbott and Ella Ryan all came on to contribute to the win. Special mention to Aoibheann Fogarty and Evie Ryan who were also key members of this brilliant panel of players.

At the final whistle the ecstatic Moycarkey team celebrated a famous and historic win for their school - their first ever county camogie title. Well done to the girls and to their families and local GAA clubs, all of whom can be very proud of the role they played in this great achievement.
