Cois Bhríde:
U21 Football Championship (B)

Cois Bhride 1-5   Ballyduff 0-7
We lost our first round against Ardmore and were rewarded with a quarter final placing against near neighbours Ballyduff in Lismore last Sunday. The score line tells its own tale. Conditions under foot were similar to our first outing but on top of that players had to contend with the vagaries of a blustery tempestuous wind. All in all it was a scrappy affair but no reflection on either team who made the best of the conditions.
Both teams fared better when facing the wind. Cois Bhride, against the wind, led by 2 points at half time – 1-3 to 4 points – but only managed 2 points in the second half. Ballyduff probably had enough opportunities to win the game in the latter stages but could only increase their tally by 3. It wasn’t enough and the Bridesiders edged it by the minimum to secure their place in a Western semi-final.
Team: Jack Tobin, Alan Curley, Andrew O Riordan, Padraig Roche, Will Hogan, Jake Neville, Adam Crawford, Robbie Beecher, JP Lucy, Noel Condon, Stefan Tobin, Eddie Hynes, Jordan Henley, Ryan Grey, Paudie Ahearn, Davy Tobin, Edward O Neill, Darragh Mulcahy, Eoin O Reilly, Billy Buckley.
U16 Football

Cois Bhride 1 - 9 St Saviours 1 - 9
Our u16 footballers kicked off their championship campaign with a trip to Ballybeg in Waterford City last Sunday morning knowing the task that lay in front of them as this was St Saviours third game and two wins to their credit . In very windy conditions we played against it in the first half. A mighty effort was called for and it was exactly what our lads gave all through the half. We conceded a few early points and under savage pressure we worked our way back into the game and only trailed by two points at the break 6 points to 4. In the first 5 minutes of the second half we conceded a goal and two points to leave us seven points adrift and a mountain to climb. But this team never lost hope and kept the scoreboard ticking over to bring it back to a goal. With the last play of the game they were rewarded for their brilliant effort with a punched goal to leave the sides level. Our next game is on in Tallow Sunday week 15th March against St Marys. Panel of 18 all gave their best and contributed to a great result.

Western Semi-final

Child Protection course
A child protection course will take place at Tallow GAA clubhouse on Monday 23rd March at 7pm. It is mandatory for anyone working with players u18. Contact Kate Ryan.

Last Man Standing
And we're down to the last 6. 50% of our remaining competitors fell by the way side this weekend.
1.First to fall was the man from Tipp Sean Boland (at least he has the right colours), who started planning how to spend his winnings before he had actually won and chose to go with West Ham this week.
2. David Coffey failed to enter a team so was assigned the lowest placed team playing this week which was Aston Villa.
3. Our reigning Senior Hurler of the year Shaun O Sullivan wi...ll not be adding to his titles this year after he bowed out due to Southampton's 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Brom. The romantic air in Paris obviously affected Shaun's thinking.
4. Alan Buckley was another who succumbed to the charms of West Ham who let him down with their defeat to Crystal Palace in the London derby.
5. It is now officially a case of Last Man Standing as our last female Audrey Sheehan was knocked off her feet by the inability of Southampton to continue their good form this season.
6. The same fate befell Bernard O Hara who also seemed to be getting carried away at the thought of spending his winnings while he still had a few hurdles left to clear.
The remaining 6 competitors are as follows:
1. Jordan Henley
2. Luke McCarthy
3. Tom McSweeney
4. Kieran Geary
5. Eric Hickey
6. Robert Drohan.

Tallow GAA club expresses deepest sympathy to the Spillane family Glencairn and the Cashman family on the sad passing of Frank. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.

Monthly Meeting
Our monthly meeting will take place this Thursday March 5th at the later time of 9.30pm in the clubhouse due to Cois Bhríde meeting at 8pm. All committee members are requested to attend.
