 Junior Football Championship:  Tallow 2-10   Old Parish 0-12
Tallow continued their steady progress in the junior football championship with a 4 point win over Old Parish in Ardmore last Friday evening. Goals at key moments for Tallow, just before and after the half time break proved decisive in a tight contest.
As is often the case at the well appointed seaside venue the wind was a telling factor. Tallow used it to full advantage in the first half putting 7 points on the board to 3 from an Seana Phobail with 5 minutes left before the break. Not an insurmountable deficit from an Old Parish point of view but a converted penalty in the closing stages by Mikey Curley, who was unerring from placed balls on the night, put a different complexion on matters. Half time: Tallow 1-7 Old Parish 0-3
Trailing by 7 Old Parish started the second half in determined fashion and cut the lead to 5 with a brace of points from play. A well taken opportunist goal from Stephen Pratt 12 minutes into the second period stretched the Tallow lead to 8 points. Although Old Parish had the majority of possession in the last quarter and made some inroads, scoring four or five points in succession, the gap was just two wide to close. When substitute James Tobin curled over a magnificent point from a tight angle way out by the sideline Tallow were assured of the points. The great Maurice Fitzgerald would have been proud of this effort and it raised a huge cheer from our small but devoted band of supporters.
A lot of changes from the previous game but the lads still did the business. I can’t give Paul O Brien the man of the match award again as he only got four points from play (and the runai says I’m biased).  We had a number of good performances. Sully and Kieran Fraser were flying in the wing back positions, Bear made good use of the ball and took his goal well while Stefan Tobin is a skilful performer. However we have a joint award for man of the match this week shared by our two young tenacious corner backs Alan Curley and Jack Tobin.
Panel: Wm. Curley, Alan Curley, Jack Tobin, Aaron Pratt, Shaun O Sullivan, Eric Hickey, Kieran Fraser, Mark  O Brien, Mikey Curley (1-4,4f,1p), Brian McCarthy, Paul O Brien (0-4), Kevin Henley, Sean Gleeson (0-1), Stephen Pratt (1-0), Stefan Tobin, Mikey Tobin,  James Tobin( 0-1).

Waterford Hurling
A fantastic win for the senior hurlers sees them through to the Munster Final on July 12th. They will play the winners of Tipperary and Limerick, little did we think this at the start of the year!! Well done boys!! The intermediate hurling was a different story where they were beaten by 8 points. This is hardly surprising considering the amount of preparation this team had!!

Junior Hurling
Our junior hurlers will play Mellary this Friday, June 12th, at 7.45. Best of luck lads!

Senior Hurling
This game against Abbeyside is fixed for Tuesday June 23rd in Lismore at 7.30. Not a very suitable day to say the least.

Waterford Rose
Unfortunately Sarah Tobin didn't make it through to the Rose of Tralee. However she did both herself and Tallow so proud and will be a great representative as Waterford Rose for the year.

CLG Tulach an Iarainn would like to extend sincere sympathy to Valerie Aherne (Loftus) and family on the sad passing of Joe Loftus. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

 Serious Achievers:
Congratulations to Colin Cunningham, Georgina Cunningham and Mark Geary who completed the Cork City marathon/mini marathon on the bank holiday week end. All had excellent times. Bubs ran 3.46 - a full 30 minutes his Dublin time. The Nutri Boost is definitely working!
Congratulations also to Tomás McCarthy who completed The Iron Man in Lanzarote - May 23rd.  He Swam 3.8 km - cycled 180 km and ran a full marathon 42 km. The mind boggles. What a legend!!!

First aid course:
The pitch side first aid course took place in the club house in Tallow last Saturday. We had a full attendance with 10 Cois Bhride representatives present, as we all as some participants from Ballyduff and Shamrocks Ladies football. The course itself was very well structured and all attendees agreed that they are now much better equipped to deal with some of the day to day injuries typically encountered during the course of a match. The plan is to put a rota in place so that we can have first aid trained person present at all the juvenile matches during the year. This proposed rota will be communicated to all the Cois Bhride participants over the coming weeks.
