On Saturday last in Leahy Park Cashel, the Moycarkey Borris Under 16’s entered the history books with a three point victory over Inane Rovers in the Tipperary Co-Operative Under 16 A County Football Final. The Final was a very hard fought game with the two teams equally matched and determined to win to the County title.
Inane Rovers opened the scoring with a goal in the second minute while Moycarkey had to wait till the fourth minute when Darren Flood pointed a free. For the next fifteen minutes both teams contested hard for scores but they evaded them. Moycarkey’s goal chances saved by goalie, Shane Treacy and Owen Tynan, Inane Rovers had an opportunity which hit the post and Luke Cashen rebounded the ball but Rhys Shelly secured the ball and kicked to safety. In the eighteenth minute Kevin Hayes pointed for Moycarkey and in the following minute Darren Flood equalised another point. Jack Fallon placed two more points on the score line for Moycarkey before Inane Rovers received a penalty which they scored to put them back in front by a point. This goal however, was the catalyst for another in the following minute just before the whistle and the sides went in at half time Inane Rovers 3-0 Moycarkey Borris 0-5.
Moycarkey opened the second half as Inane did in the first half with a raised green flag by Darren Flood. In the following minute James Dillon pointed to equalise the game. However, James Synnott, Inane Rovers netted the ball and a point from Darragh Tynan meant there was a four point margin. Moycarkey scored three more points from James Dillon, Darren Flood and Max Hackett before another Inane Rovers point from Darragh Tynan. Moycarkey’s Jack Fallon pointed as the clock entered the final quarter and Darren Flood equalised the following minute with a pointed free.
It looked like nothing was going to separate the teams but Moycarkey kept the pressure on with two more points from Darren Flood and Kyle Shelly. Moycarkey were still not out of the danger zone until Jack Fallon passed the ball to Kyle Shelly who netted it giving Moycarkey a lead of five points. Jack Fallon pointed another in normal time but it was an injury time goal by Aidan Booth, Inane Rovers which reduced the deficit to three points before the final whistle sounded - Moycarkey Borris 2-14 Inane Rover 5-2

Moycarkey-Borris qualified for the final of the Dr. Fogarty Senior Hurling Cup with a hard earned five point victory over their hosts Killenaule on Friday evening.
On an overcast, showery evening, Killenaule had the aid of the wind in the first half but it was Moycarkey-Borris who raced in to a two point lead early on thanks to white flags from Pat Ralph and Kieran Morris. Killenaule got off the mark with a point in the fourth minute but a Daniel Guinan goal put them in front after six minutes. This score gave the home side a boost as they dominated the next ten minutes, taking a 1-5 to 0-5 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Moycarkey reduced the lead to a solitary point with white flags from Kieran Morris and Rory O’Regan before an Anthony Healy goal in the 23rd minute put Moycarkey in front. As the first half drew to a close, Moycarkey scored 5 of the next 7 points to go in four points to the good at half-time, 1-11 to 1-7.
With wind advantage and the showers becoming more frequent, Moycarkey stretched their lead to 1-13 to 1-8 in the opening stages of the second half. However, Moycarkey would not score again for 11 minutes as Killenaule began to dominate proceedings scoring five unanswered points to bring the sides level heading in to the final quarter – 1-13 to 1-13.
Kieran Morris and Pat Ralph put Moycarkey back in front before Killenaule got one back in the 50th minute. With a tight finish expected, instead it was Moycarkey who went in to overdrive, scoring six unanswered points to assume control of the game. Killenaule would score three of the last four points of the game but were unable to breach the Moycarkey defence for a goal and at the final whistle, Moycarkey were five point winners. Moycarkey Borris 1-23 Killenaule 1-18. Moycarkey-Borris will now play Loughmore-Castleiney or Ballina in the final.
