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.

2017 Cahill Cup Quarter-Final 
Moycarkey-Borris 2-18 Holycross-Ballycahill 1-23
By Ed Donnelly
Defending champions Moycarkey-Borris bowed out of the Cahill Cup at the Quarter-Final stage on Tuesday last by virtue of a two-point defeat at the hands of neighbours Holycross-Ballycahill at Littleton.
Holycross had the aid of the wind in the opening half but it was Moycarkey who made the better start. Anthony McKelvey accounted for Moycarkey’s first two points and in the ninth minute, McKelvey set up Kieran Morris for a well worked goal and the home side led 1-3 to 0-2. By the end of the first quarter, the sides had added two points each before Holycross took over completely. 
During a ten-minute purple patch, Holycross hit 7 points on the trot and by the interval, Holycross had turned a 4 point deficit in to a 3 point interval lead – 0-12 to 1-6. 
Moycarkey’s play on the resumption improved and the home side drew level within five minutes thanks to unanswered points from Kieran Morris (2) and Pat Ralph. Holycross edged in front again as the game entered the final quarter before another purple patch saw the visitors scoring 1-3 without reply from the 45th to 50th minute to take control of the game, leading by 1-18 to 1-11. 
Moycarkey however responded in the best possible way and four unanswered points from Rory Ryan (2), Mossy Bracken and Kieran Morris brought their side back in to contention. When a Kieran Morris goalbound shot took a deflection and ended up in the net, the sides were level with three minutes of normal time remaining. 
Rather than push on to victory, it was Holycross who took back the imitative and four points in four minutes left Moycarkey needing a goal to salvage a draw. Moycarkey did add on two points in injury time but it was too little, too late and Holycross ran out deserving two point winners. 
Moycarkey Borris team – Bill McCormack; Kieran Cummins, James Power (C), Michael Cussen; Daniel Kirby, Kevin Moran, James Bourke; Mossy Bracken (0-1), Conor Hayes; Matty Ryan, Pat Ralph (0-2), Pat Carey; Rory Ryan (0-3), Kieran Morris (2-9, 0-7 frees), Anto McKelvey (0-2)
Subs used – Paul Dempsey for Cummins (26m), Gerry Maguire for Matty Ryam (42m), Phil Kelly (0-1 free) for Carey (43m), Eric Fanning for Bourke (51m), Timmy Ryan for Ralph (56m)

The game began with an intensity which showed on the scoreboard and both sides had points on the score board within minutes. By the fifth minute Moycarkey registered the lead and although the first half was close with a tit for tat point scoring, Moycarkey maintained the lead building on it in with three points in the closing minutes of the first half to go in at half time - Moycarkey Borris 0-6 Durlas Óg 0-3.
Moycarkey Borris re-entered the field for the second half with a new intensity and had four points on the scoreboard before Durlas Óg registered their first in the thirty eighth minute. Moycarkey’s purple patch did not end there but continued throughout the half and they added a further eight points to the scoreline while Durlas Óg only added a late consolation goal which did little only enhance their score line. The final score Moycarkey Borris 0-18 Durlas Óg 1-4.
Goals evaded Moycarkey Borris in this game but it was not for trying as they had missed goal chances in the second half with the posts being the main offenders. This was Moycarkey Borris’s fourth time to win this competition and this year Peter Melbourne, Captain accepted the Cup from Mid Bord Na nÓg Chairman, Martin Bourke on behalf of the team.

2017 Cahill Cup
Moycarkey Borris will play Holycross Ballycahill in the Cahill Cup on Tuesday, May 16th at 7.30pm in Littleton.


Minor A Football Championship
Moycarkey-Borris 1-13 Na Sairsealaigh Óg 0-6
Moycarkey-Borris produced a dominant last 20 minutes to earn a place in the Mid Minor A Football Final by virtue of a flattering 10 point victory over Na Sairsealaigh Óg in Littleton on Saturday evening.

In a low scoring first half, the Thurles side opened the scoring with a point from Kevin Bracken after five minutes. Anthony McKelvey and Max Hackett replied with points from play soon afterwards before Frank McKevitt brought his side level with a point from play. Shane Maher put Moycarkey in front heading in to the second quarter but in truth, it was Na Sairsealaigh Óg who were dominating possession at this stage. This pressure paid off in the 19th minute when the Thurles side won a penalty with David O’Donnell receiving a yellow card for the foul. Frank McKevitt took the spot kick which was well saved by Rhys Shelly. The rebound fell to the onrushing corner-forward Christopher Carew but somehow, Shelly managed to race across his goal to pull off another save and the danger was averted. Thurles had much of the possession for the remainder of the half but struggled to convert their chances and a Diarmuid Maher free in the 28th minute was the only other score of the first half as Moycarkey led by 0-4 to 0-2 at the interval.

The pattern of play in the early stages of the second half continued to see Na Sairsealaigh Óg dominate possession. Kevin Bracken reduced the deficit to a single score in the first minute of the half with a point from play with Moycarkey corner-forward James Dillon replying in kind two minutes later. Sarsfields dominance began to pay dividends as two pointed frees from Frank McKevitt brought the sides level. McKevitt also had a goal chance during this period only to see Rhys Shelly pull off a point blank save to keep his goal intact.

Moycarkey looked to take control of the game in the 40th minute when Anthony McKelvey won a penalty. The Moycarkey full-forward took the penalty himself only to see his shot go narrowly wide with the Thurles goalkeeper beaten. From the resultant kick-out, Na Sairsealaigh Óg worked the ball upfield and took the lead with a point from play by Aidan Butler.

The game looked set for a close finish but Moycarkey seemed to take falling behind in the game as a personal insult as the intensity in their play was raised instantly and to a level which Na Sairsealaigh Óg struggled to live with. With James Dillon operating to good effect in the full forward line, slowly but surely the scores became to come for the home side. It didn’t look that way initially as a good Moycarkey passing move ended with Diarmuid Maher only to see his punched effort hit the crossbar and away to safety. At the third quarter came to an end, James Dillon scored two quick points from play to put Moycarkey back in front by 0-7 to 0-6.

Max Hackett added another point from play in the 47th minute before Na Sairsealaigh Óg were reduced to 14 men when full-back Mikey Stakelum picked up his second yellow card. The momentum was well and truly with Moycarkey now and Thurles struggled to win possession around the middle third. Moycarkey added four points in a five minute spell courtesy of Diarmuid Maher (2), Max Hackett and James Dillon to stretch their lead out to seven points. Na Sairsealaigh Óg found themselves further restricted as their wing-back Seamus Doyle received his marching orders in the 55th minute.

There was still time for Moycarkey to finish with a flourish as James Dillon rounded off an excellent performance by scoring 1-1 in injury time to ensure Moycarkey qualified for the final by virtue of a 1-13 to 0-6 victory. Moycarkey-Borris will now play JK Brackens Óg in the final.
