"Are you the only one with a medal!!" A comment made to Tom Sweeney last Sunday morning. This obviously put us into convulsions of laughter, after we got over the insult!!!!

Cois Bhríde
Minor Co. final, Cois Bhride 2-17, Ballygunner 4-11.
Though disappointment was our initial reaction on hearing the final whistle of the minor hurling county final in Walsh Park last Saturday which finished in a draw, a quick review of the game confirmed that it
was truly a rip-roaring titanic match that was keenly contested and had some great passages of play. That it took a majestic strike from the 65m line against a strong breeze from Ryan Grey to draw the match scarcely seemed likely considering we had opened up an eight point lead with 18 minutes to go. But the concession of two soft goals was what gave Ballygunner the belief to turn the game on it's head, and that's where our disappointment comes from. The game started with a good point from Darragh Buckley, quickly followed by a point and then a goal from the 'Gunners. Undeterred Cois Bhride fought back with a point from Ryan, and a great goal scored by 16yr old Ian Beecher following a great run by Darah (also 16)! The game was evenly matched at that point, and scores from Kelvyn O' Farrell, John Paul Lucey, and Ryan again saw us go into the half time break 1-7 to 1-5 ahead albeit with the strong breeze. We started the second half with great intensity, and points fron Ryan, Kelvyn, and another brilliant goal from that man Ian again saw us eight points to the good. But then
Ballygunner struck a purple patch which was sparked by a goal and a point, and though we weathered that storm, we were left reeling when they scored another goal following a 60 meter run through our defence. Points from Ryan, Edward O' Neill, and Ryan again saw us regain the lead with the excitement rising, but once again we were left reeling when a long delivery sailed all the way to the net untouched and the Gunners had the lead with time almost up. That Ryan had the bottle to put over the last puck from the 65 despite the catcalling from the unsporting so-called supporters is a testament to his courage and skill, and was the very least this great team deserved. Despite our disappointment in not winning a game that we looked to be in charge of, we can take comfort from the fact that we have another chance at it, and we are still very much there. Though reluctant to pick out one player as the whole team ran themselves to a standstill, I must mention 16 yr old Darah Buckley who from the first whistle to the end had the game of his life, and 16 yr old Ian Beecher with two great goals can be very proud of his contribution. The replay will probably be on Saturday week, but that must be confirmed. Panel; Davy Tobin, Robbie Geary, Jake Beecher, Darah Mulcahy, Padraig Roche, Jake
Neville, Cathal Geary, Jordan Henley, John Paul Lucey (0-1), Dylan Mangan, Kelvyn O' Farrell (0-2), Edward Hynes, Ian Beecher (2-0), Ryan Grey (0-12), Darah Buckley (0-1), Edward O' Neill (0-1), Alan Buckley, Tom Roche, Shane Ryan, Billy Hynes.  We would like to thank Johnny Geary and Meadowfresh for sponsoring the new tops the lads were wearing on the day and finally I must mention our supporters who travelled the 100 mile round trip in great numbers to lend their support. We're not out of it yet! And we still have a Minor football co. final replay to play!
