Junior Hurling Championship:

Tallow   1-14    Lismore 2-13

This was a cracking game of hurling with all the ingredients you would expect from a local derby. It was tough and competitive throughout with plenty of spills and thrills but I have to say played in a good spirit.

Lismore opened the scoring with a pointed free but thereafter Tallow broke from the blocks and reeled off 8 points in succession to take control of the game. Lismore hung in there and a goal towards the end of the first half gave them a vital foothold from which to launch their second half comeback. Tallow were the better team and looked comfortable over the opening period yet couldn’t shake off Lismore and had only a 2 point lead to show for their efforts. Half Time: Tallow 0-8, Lismore 1-3.

Lismore dominated early exchanges after the resumption and gradually pulled ahead. Tallow stayed in touch with a Brian Henley goal helping to rebalance things for a short while. There’s no doubt Tallow had opportunities to salvage this game in the closing stages but Lismore held firm and on balance of play just about deserved the narrow 2 point win. All in all it was a most entertaining game. Though it has been a disappointing season for our juniors they finished the year on a high with two spirited performances against Ballyduff and Lismore last Friday night. Our thanks to team selectors and players for their efforts!  

Tallow: Wm Curley, S Curley, J Tobin, Dylan Mangan, Eric Hickey, Kieran Fraser, M Tobin, N Condon, K Henley(0-1), D Tobin, B Henley (1-3), Billy Henley (0-7,5f), J Power (0-2), S Barry,(0-1), A Buckley, T McSweeney.


Comhbhron:

Tallow GAA club extend deepest sympathy to the Cunningham family on the death of Mrs Bridie Cunningham (nee Quinlan), Bridgelands, Tallow. Ar dheis lamh De go raibh si.


Senior Hurling:

We had a provisional club championship date of August 13th but obviously all that has changed now and we’re off to Dublin for the All Ireland semi final against Cork. Our congratulations to Tommy and the team on their win over Wexford on Sunday!

Home for the Game:

I didn’t meet him but I understand former club stalwart Kieran Ryan was in town and attended the game on Sunday. Great to have you home Ryano and here’s hoping you will have to make another couple of trips before the season is over.


Junior Football:

We play Shamrocks in our final jnr football league game on Sat 29th @ 7 30 in Ballyduff.


Club Meeting:

A meeting of the club executive committee will take place this Thursday 27th @ 9pm in the clubhouse.

Sargent Cup Semi-final.

Tallow  2-12   Ballygunner 2-23

It’s been a while since we played competitive senior hurling in Cappoquin and it was appropriate that the Sargent Cup semi final was hosted at the Cornerstone venue. The Cappoquin club must be complimented on the grounds and playing surface which were top class.

Ballygunner were naturally clear favourites going into this game, and their eventual winning margin justified this, but Tallow contested well throughout and  and the management wouldn’t have been too unhappy with this performance.  The loss of talisman Ryan Grey through injury didn’t help our cause but Jordan Henley assumed the role in the second half and contributed 1-5.  Ballygunner in full flow are a handful for any team in the country, with their running game, slick interchanges and support play difficult to counteract. Admittedly they have a huge reserve of player resources to call on, at least in comparison to any team in the far west, but they are maximising their potential and setting the standard in this county and maybe beyond.

Decent performance all round from our lads but plenty to work on. Fada was unyielding as ever at full back and young Robbie Geary has adapted well to senior hurling. Shane Feeney has plenty of ability and is progressing with every game. Ryan and Jordan are well within their comfort zone at this level and although still very young are emerging as leaders. . They are well capable. Darragh Mulcahy has a great attitude, energy to burn and will never quit. With more experience he, along with Darragh Buckley and Ian Beecher, will be key members of this squad. Mol an oige mar a deirtear! Quick mention too for Noel Condon! Great club player who lined out for the juniors Friday night and the seniors Saturday evening! Cathal Geary is another young lad with potential and coped well on his first introduction to senior hurling.

We have no definite date for our next championship match which will be determined by the outcome of Sunday’s game against Wexford. We wish Thomas and the team well.

Tallow: S O Sullivan, J Tobin, D O Brien, R Beecher, J Beecher, J Henley (1-5, 1f), R Geary, M O Brien(0-1), D Mulcahy, I Beecher, R Grey (0-6,1 65), S Feeney (0-1), E Sheehan, E Condon, D Buckley, M Tobin, C Geary, B Henley, D Beecher, N Condon.

Tickets:

The club will only receive over half the stand tickets requested, due to limited stand capacity at Pairc Ui Chaoimh so please show understanding as our runai Lindsay has the unenviable task of organising ticket distribution within the club.

Junior Hurling:

Ballyduff 2-20   Tallow 2-12

As the score line might suggest, Ballyduff were comfortable enough winners in the end having built up a big first half lead. Tallow battled back gallantly in the second half , outscoring their opponents, but they had left themselves too much of a hill to climb. It was a good competitive encounter featuring some tough ground hurling and overhead pulling, a rarity in the modern game.

Another feature of the game was that both sides fielded a father and son combination. Tommy and Adam Feeney lined out for Ballyduff while the evergreen Brian Henley and son Billy contributed a combined total of 1-8 to Tallow’s final tally.  

We return to Tourin again next Friday to play Lismore in our final game of the championship qualifiers.

Tallow: W Curley, T McSweeney, J Tobin, S Curley, M Tobin, K Fraser, E Hickey (0-1), N Condon(0-1), K Henley, B Henley (0-4f), Brian Henley (1-4), D Tobin, A Curley, S Barry, B Buckley, J Power (1-0), D Beecher, C McCarthy (0-2), D Mangan.

Comhbhron:

Tallow GAA Club extends deepest sympathy to the Hartigan family, Tallow and Cork, on the sad passing of Michael Sean Hartigan. Ar dheis lamh De go raibh se.

Just Filling In:

Our PRO Kate is on a break so I’m just filling in. Maybe it’s just as well I’m not penning these notes on a regular basis as I probably would have this keyboard chewed up with anger and frustration at the treatment of clubs. The last game played in the senior hurling championship was on the 23rd April – over 13 weeks ago. Clubs, smaller ones in particular are stretched to the limit and at their wits end trying to keep limited panels together and in training with no end game in sight, while neighbouring counties seem to manage the balance between club and county much better. Lads are drifting, many gone abroad, and it’s frustrating for players and selectors alike. They are on constant standby and the lack of some semblance of fixture certainty leaves them and their families unable to plan any event. The usual lip service is paid from the top down about the primacy of the club unit in our association. The reality on the ground doesn’t change however. This is not a new phenomenon! Far from it!  I recall writing about this malaise some 15 years ago.  It will inevitably lead to a decline in clubs and the game of hurling will suffer. I could go on ad nauseam, and did so for years, but I’m wasting my time.  Maybe the blame lies with the clubs? We need to stand up and take back control of our own destiny. Nobody is going to do it for us!

Comhbhron:

On behalf of Tallow GAA club we extend deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Abie Aherne. A teacher for many years at Tallow National School, Mrs Aherne was very popular and much beloved by all who benefitted from her gentle guidance and tuition. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam uasal.

Failte roimh iomanai Naomh Columcille

With justifiable entitlement, Derry lays claim to being the cradle of the Civil Rights Movement that focused world attention on the naked discrimination and viciously sectarian order that prevailed in the north east of Ireland in the late ‘60s. If Derry was the cradle then Coalisland was present at the birth. The first Civil Rights march in the 6 counties took place on 24thAugust in 1968 from Coalisland to Dungannon.

This is the land of O Neill! They value their identity and Irish heritage. Coalisland , Clonoe and surrounding parishes touching the shores of Lough Neagh, have a long and proud tradition of resistance to oppression and foreign domination. They suffered more than their share throughout “the troubles” Despite, or maybe because of, this oppression, Irish language, culture and games are thriving. East Tyrone is staunch Gaelic football territory in the Red Hand County. Within a 3 mile radius of Coalisland you would encounter as many as 7 football clubs. Football is serious business in Tyrone!

The Naomh Columcille club is a hurling oasis in football heartland. Against all the odds they have survived and strive to promote our national game. It hasn’t been easy for them. More than anybody else Damian Mor O Neill has been central to the clubs formation and continued development. We welcome Damian and the hurlers of Naomh Columcille to Tallow this weekend to take part in coaching and games. On Saturday they will participate along with Tallow, Tourin and Ballyduff in a tournament for the Gary Duffin Cup. Gary was a talented hurler with the Tyrone club who died suddenly at the age of 26 in 2005. His parents Liam and Maura and other family members are travelling for the occasion. This is the second time that Tallow has had the privilege of hosting the competition but we have a long association with our northern friends and there have been many exchanged visits between the clubs going back to 1996.

They will have a light coaching session with James Murray on Friday evening and the games get underway at 11 on Saturday morning. Finals scheduled for approx 12 30/ 1 00! On Saturday afternoon the Tyrone lads will embark on a short tour of West Waterford taking in an Rinn Gaeltacht. Following 10 o clock mass on Sunday morning in the Convent our visitors will meet at Kearney’s Restaurant for breakfast before departing for the Munster Hurling Final and thence northward to Tyrone. We would like to thank all our host families who are providing accommodation and the Sisters of the Carmelite Convent who always give our visitors a great welcome.

Fundraiser

This Saturday 8th July we are holding our main fundraiser for the year. An auction will be held in Lizzy Langtons with doors open at 9.30pm. There is a €5 cover charge which will include tickets for a raffle on the night and music will be provided by No Recession. The main item is a nomination to leading National Hunt sire Mahler, kindly donated by Mr Bobby McCarthy of Beeches Stud, Tallow, Co.Waterford and a donation from the night's proceeds will be made to the West Waterford Injured Jockeys Fund. We would like to thank everyone who has helped in the organising of this night especially all those who have kindly donated auction items. We hope to see you all there for what should be a great night.

List of some of the items on offer are as follows:


Junior Football:

Tallow 1-6 Old Parish 2-11

Tallow competed well in the first half but as the game wore on Old Parish established their dominance and in the end emerged comfortable winners at Bushy Park last Sunday. Our final game before the knock out stages is against Shamrocks. No date as yet.

Tallow: W Curley, A Curley, J Tobin, M Tobin, E Hickey, K Fraser, Darragh Mulcahy, S O Sullivan, K Geary, K Henley, J Neville, E Sheehan, Billy Henley, B Buckley, A Buckley, S Curley.
