Junior Hurling Championship:
Tallow 1-10    Kilgobnet 1-10
Tallow needed a draw at minimum to advance to the knock out stages in their final qualifier game against Kilgobnet in nearby Colligan on Friday evening.   In the early stages it looked like they would accomplish a win with some ease but as the game developed they were happy to squeeze out a draw at the final whistle which puts them through to a quarter final tilt against Ballyduff or Colligan. Despite an under par performance, anything less would have been an injustice as they were the team most intent on playing hurling.
A troublesome cross wind tested the control and accuracy of both teams on a perfect playing surface. Tallow, hurling well within themselves, looked comfortable in the opening half scoring 1-6 to Kilgobnet’s 4 points. We wasted a number of scoring opportunities and were lucky not to pay the price at the finish. Roles were reversed for the second half with Kilgobnet dominating play as Tallow tired and sustained injuries.  The scoring mirrored in reverse that of the first half with Kilgobnet scoring 1-6 to Tallow’s 4 points. Given the state of the game, the final whistle brought closure to what was on occasions an unsavoury encounter.
Mikey Curley has probably been our most consistent player over the campaign thus far. I’m saving a man of the match award for him! On this occasion however the accolade has to go to Jake Neville. His contribution of 1-3 alone merits it.
We have a very young squad in development (as well as veteran stalwarts Basher, JP and Bear who continue to give service above and beyond the call of duty). It’s important to nurture and keep these lads involved as well as introducing more from the underage ranks each year. A senior team cannot exist in isolation! For many years now our junior team has established an esprit de corps and have worn the jersey with distinction and honour. They are crucial to the development of Tallow GAA club!
Tallow: JP Grey, Stephen Pratt, William Hogan, Mikey Tobin, Paul O Mahoney, Kieran Fraser, Eric Hickey,              Mikey Curley (0-3f), Stefan Tobin (0-1), Jake Neville (1-3), Donnchadh Mulcahy (0-1), Aaron Pratt, Kevin Henley, Brian Henley ((0-2), Alan Curley, Matthew Scheibelreiter, Alan Buckley, Stuart Barry, Noel Condon.
Footnote: I don’t like doing it but it has to be said. Some of the tackling and dangerous pulling that went on in this game has no place on a hurling field. 
Out of Action
We wish a speedy recovery to William Curley who is currently out of action following an injury sustained a few weeks back. We hope to see you back on your feet soon Carter!!

Happy Birthday
