Present on the night were various GAA guests including the President Christy Cooney, former Dublin football superstar Ciarán Whelan, former GAA President (and current M.E.P for Munster) Sean Kelly and former Limerick hurling great Gary Kirby. The last three Presidents of the I.N.T.O (Máire Ni Chuinneagan, Declan Kelleher and Angela Dunne) were present.

Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Hurling and Camogie County Finals 2010 Match Reports

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Hurling and Camogie Finals 2010

Young Stars Light Up Epic Tipperary Cumann Na mBunscol Finals

By John Manley, PRO Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol.

The annual Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Hurling and Camogie Finals took place in Semple Stadium Thurles, over two days on Thursday, 10th June and Friday, 11th June. Played in perfect conditions, these finals exhibited all that is good in our native games. The matches provided great entertainment for the large attendance on both days. The young stars of tomorrow illuminated a sun-drenched Semple Stadium with their vast array of skills and talent. The levels of skill that were on display were of a very high standard. The Under 13 F Hurling Final between Clonoulty and Drom will live long in the memory. Extra time could not even separate these two gallant teams and it was agreed that they would share the title. Powerstown achieved their first hurling victory in their illustrious history. St. Mary’s Nenagh achieved a memorable camogie double which more than makes up for the disappointment of falling at the final hurdle last year. Cashel were another notable team making a return to the top table after a long absence. Thanks are due to Semple custodian Philly Butler for the warm welcome he showed to all the schools and to Jimmy Purcell, Jim Max and Andy O’ Gorman for ensuring that everything ran smoothly. A special thanks is due to our referees Michael Jordan and Christy McLoughlin plus our very capable umpires Oisín Jordan, Shane Hennessey and Andrew Coffey. Special praise is also due to Cumann na mBunscol Secretary Aodán Wrenn, PRO John Manley and Chairman Paddy Kelly for organising such a successful two days. Most importantly, special praise should also be afforded to all the talented boys and girls who graced the hallowed turf over the two days. I would like to thank all the teachers and coaches of the teams for their co-operation preceding and during the finals. Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol are very fortunate to have some of the most dedicated and committed teachers around in our county. They are setting a terrific example for all our young boys and girls. DVDs of the 2010 Hurling Finals are available from Michael Trehy Video Productions and all orders will be taken on 086 2755805. Teachers of the different schools can place their orders with Michael. Prices: Single Match: €20. Double Match Box Set: €25. All match reports and photos of the Finals are on the Allianz Cumann na mBunscol website http://cnmb.tipperary.gaa.ie .

Thursday, 10th June

Under 11B Camogie

Drom 7-04 Clonoulty 5-01

Referee: Michael Jordan

The first game of the 2010 Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol Hurling and Camogie Finals saw Drom NS take on Clonoulty NS . This game provided the perfect beginning to our finals. It was an absorbing contest from start to finish. Two evenly matched teams provided wonderful entertainment from start to finish. Drom NS captain Mary Grace got Drom off to the perfect start with two well taken points. However, Clonoulty were determined to ensure that Drom were not going to have it all their own way and came roaring back into the game through a superb individual goal from their captain Hayley Doyle. Hayley soon followed this goal up with one of the best goals seen during the finals when striking a wonder goal after a seventy yard solo run. Two more goals from the exceptional Mary Grace left the half-time score at Drom 3-02 and Clonoulty 2-01. The teams traded early goals on the resumption, one of which was a superb goal by Noeleen Brereton for Drom NS . Hayley Doyle, playing a captain’s part then struck another fantastic goal to add to her already impressive tally. Drom were not going to be undone however and responded with well taken goals by Courtney Shields and Mary Grace to ensure that Drom NS ran out deserving winners. This was a rip-roaring contest from start to finish and Mary Grace of Drom NS and Hayley Doyle from Clonoulty NS produced exceptional performances that will live long in the memory.

St. Colmcille's 2-06 St. Mary’s CBS Clonmel 0-02

Referee: Christy McLoughlin

Match two was another wonderful contest between two very well drilled teams. St. Colmcille's came out on the right side of the result after producing a wonderful team performance. St. Colmcille’s never gave their opponents any time on the ball and they must have made at least sixty block downs during the course of the game. They were wonderful exponents of what is a sometimes forgotten art in the game. Jamie Morrissey of St. Colmcille's and Jack Kennedy of St. Mary’s traded a couple of early scores to see the teams tied at 0-02 each after ten minutes. A pointed free by Tom Murphy gave St. Colmcille’s the slenderest of leads at the interval. With Radek Natkaniec exerting a considerable influence on proceedings after the break, St. Colmcille’s soon got their noses in front through some great scores by Tom Murphy and Dean Morrissey. Paddy Cadell gave another very impressive display for St. Colmcille’s for the second successive year. A great goal by Jamie Morrissey provided a fitting end to the game to ensure that St. Colmcille’s ran out very deserving winners. Eamonn Kennedy of St. Colmcille’s and Jack Kennedy St. Mary’s produced tremendous performances for their respective schools.

Under 11 A Iomáint

Holycross 0-08 Scoil Ailbhe 1-03.

Referee: Michael Jordan.

The Under 11 A Hurling Final between Holycross and Scoil Ailbhe produced arguably one of the best games of the finals. The first touch and skill levels of both these teams were of the very highest standard. It was a game where defences were on top for large periods. Darragh Woods got Holycross off to the perfect start with a point from what seemed an impossible angle. Scoil Ailbhe reacted well to this and were rewarded with a great goal by Adam Derby. A long range point by Michael Purcell ensured that Scoil Ailbhe ended the half with a three point lead. Jimmy Ryan scored a wonderful early point for Holycross on the resumption. Michael Purcell responded with a well taken free for Scoil Ailbhe. It was at this point of the game that Holycross enjoyed their most fruitful period and edged in from through scores by Darragh Woods (3) and a wonderful individual effort from Jimmy Ryan. The switch of Jerry Kelly from centre back to centre forward was another factor in Holycross seizing the initiative. A great pass by Kelly to Darragh Woods saw the latter dissect the posts to push Holycross one point clear as the match reached its finale. A wonderfully struck point by Darragh Woods ensured that Holycross took the title. Full credit is due to two superb teams for the wonderful entertainment they provided. Michael Purcell Scoil Ailbhe and Jerry Kelly Holycross were the game’s outstanding performers, but they were ably assisted by their talented team-mates.

Under 13 C Camogie

St Josephs Templemore 6-02 Scoil Mhuire - Cnoc a' Bhile 1-00.

Referee: Christy McLoughlin.

Elaine Fitzpatrick gave a display that will live long in the memory in this Under 13 Roinn C Camogie Final. Elaine was the star performer for a wonderful St Josephs Templemore team. She amassed 5-02 of her team’s total of 6-02. She was ably assisted by her wonderful team-mates with Aoife Ryan, Kate Cashman and Louise Cadell very much to the fore also. Knockavilla NS also had some wonderful performers on the day including Elise O’ Connor and Jade Hogan. O’ Connor produced an all action display for Knockavilla. A wonderful athlete; she seemed to cover every blade of grass on the Semple Stadium sod. It was a final that will ultimately be remembered for the outstanding performance of Elaine Fitzpatrick for St. Joseph ’s Templemore. Elaine scored 3-01 in the first half. This coupled with Louise Cadell’s great goal saw St. Joseph ’s Templemore lead by 4-01 to 1-00 at the break. Knockavilla’s goal was scored by the very impressive Jade Hogan. Two more goals and a point from Elaine Fitzpatrick in the second half ensured that the Under 11 C Camogie Title would be heading to St. Joseph ’s Templemore. Knockavilla NS produced a wonderful second half performance and fought gallantly to the bitter end.

Under 11 D Iomáint

Kilruane NS 5-01 Clerihan NS 1-03

Referee: Michael Jordan.

For neutrals attending the Under 11 D Final between Clerihan NS and Kilruane NS , it represented a mouth-watering prospect. Clerihan were in their first hurling final for five years and were pitted against the mighty Kilruane NS who were trained by the great Gilbert Williams. It was Kilruane who got out of the blocks quicker and two great goals by Conor Lillis saw them race into an early lead. Jack Burke responded with a well-taken score for Clerihan NS . Clerihan NS threw the “kitchen sink” at Kilruane NS in the first half, but could not penetrate the resolute Kilruane NS defence where Jake Morris was performing heroic acts. Kilruane NS had one of the most well balanced teams on display at the finals and deservedly led at the break by 4-01 to 0-01. Conor Lillis had been their star performer in the first half; scoring all of their 4-01 total. The resumption saw Clerihan NS come roaring back into this epic contest. The move of Aaron Condon to defence was a shrewd tactical ploy as it shored up their defence. Young Condon produced one of the blocks of the finals when bravely dispossessing the ever-impressive Tommy Dooley. Jack Burke began to exert considerable influence at this juncture and scored a goal and two points in a profitable five minute period for the young men from Clerihan. In a fitting climax to this absorbing contest, Tommy Dooley capped his man of the match performance off with a goal worthy enough to grace any final.

St. Mary’s Central N.S. Killenuale 2-03 Cahir Boys NS 2-01

Referee: Christy McLoughlin

The Under 11 B Hurling Final between Killenaule NS and Cahir Boys NS produced another classic. Two wonderful teams fought bravely to the bitter end in their quest to become Under 11 B Hurling champions. Midfielder Kevin Lawlor ensured that Killenaule NS got off to the best possible start with a well taken goal after five minutes. However, minutes later Ger Quinn had Cahir Boys NS level with a goal from a well- placed ground shot. A pointed free by Killenaule NS Captain Eoin Barry saw them lead by the minimum at the break. The defensive work of both teams in this game was extraordinary and this coupled with no small amount of heart and determination ensured that this game was always going to go “right down to the wire”. A point by Colm McEniry had Cahir Boys level soon after the break. This was followed by a wonderful Patrick O’ Donovan goal which seemed to stem the tide Cahir’s way. Killenaule NS had other ideas however and were soon level through a majestic Jack Hayes goal. This was quickly followed by a point from Kevin Lawlor. It was fitting that the last score fell to Eoin Barry of Killenaule NS as he had really played a captain’s part throughout. Cahir goalie Ben Allen is another star for the future. It was a pity that either team had to lose such an epic contest. Well done to both teams and congratulations to Killenaule NS on a historic victory.

Under 13 D Camogie

Ardcroney NS 6-04 Loughmore NS 0-01.

Referee: Christy McLoughlin.

Ardcroney NS produced one of the great team performances seen at this year’s finals. A gallant and spirited Loughmore NS gave everything up to the final whistle, but just met a superior force on this particular day. A wonderful goal by Niamh Costelloe from a ground stroke saw Ardcroney NS get off to the best possible start. Roisín Cahill soon followed this up with a sweetly struck point following a long solo run. Roisín Cahill(2) and Niamh Costelloe(2) both added further goals to see Ardcroney NS into a commanding half-time lead. Loughmore NS produced a very spirited second half performance which they can be more than proud of. Eilish Hassett and Caoimhe Maher are definitely two players with very bright futures for Loughmore NS . Indeed Eilish Hassett was a very worthy “Player of the Match”. Nevertheless, the mighty Ardcroney NS were not going to be undone on this particular occasion and Roisín Cahill capped off a fantastic individual performance with two wonderfully well-taken second half goals. This ensured that Ardcroney NS ran out deserving winners. I have no doubt that this fine young Loughmore NS team will grace the hallowed Semple Stadium turf in years to come, but on this particular occasion, they met a superb Ardcroney NS team.

Under 13 A Camogie

St. Mary’s Nenagh 2-04 Cahir 1-03

Referee: Michael Jordan.

Two giants of national schools camogie collided in this epic Under 13 A Camogie final. Nenagh were determined to atone for previous finals’ heartache at the hands of Our Lady’s Cahir. Cahir were without their inspirational leader Roisín Howard, but who is to say that even this wonderful player could have threatened the Nenagh defence for whom Tipperary Primary Game Star Rachel Maher was impervious throughout. Aoife Corcoran opened the scoring with a well taken point for Our Lady’s. Michelle Collins responded well for Convent Nenagh with a well taken point after a meandering solo run. A wonder strike from a free by Aoife Corcoran ended up in the top corner of the Nenagh net to see Our Lady’s into a three point half-time lead. Carol Casey was another player who caught the eye for Our Lady’s in a hugely enjoyable first half. Another Michelle Collins point for Nenagh cut the lead to two points. Two more points by Katie Farrell stretched Our Lady’s lead to four points. A wonderful save by Lisa Darcy really kept Nenagh in the game at this stage. As the game reached its critical stage, Michelle Collins scored 1-01 to bring the Convent level. This was followed by another major from the same player to edge Nenagh in front for the first time as the game reached its climax. Under 11 star Maeve Coffey made the victory safe for Convent Nenagh as she dissected the posts with a well-taken point. Nenagh owed a lot to the heroics of goalkeeper Lisa Darcy, who kept Our Lady’s at bay with some phenomenal saves. This game was a classic between two very well-trained teams.

Under 11 A Camogie

St. Mary’s Nenagh 4-02 Cahir 0-01

Referee: Christy McLoughlin.

Day Two of the Finals continued from where it left off the previous day with the clash of the titans St. Mary’s Nenagh and Our Lady’s Cahir in the Under 11 A Camogie Final. Nenagh were determined to add to their success of the previous day and laid their intentions out very early. They got off to the perfect start with an early goal from Rebecca McGrath. This was followed by a long range point from the game’s star performer Maeve Coffey. Goals by Sarah Kennedy and Leah Sheedy saw the Convent Nenagh race into a commanding half-time lead of 3-01 to 0-01. An early second half goal by Leah Sheedy ensured that Nenagh were on the verge of a historic Under 11 and Under 13 camogie double. It was fitting that the final Nenagh score was scored by Maeve Coffey. Coincidentally, she had scored the final point in the previous day’s Under 13 final. Sometimes destiny has a huge part to play in sport and you have to lose finals before you win them. This was certainly the case for this great Nenagh team, who were superbly trained by the great Suzanne Kelly. The achievements of Our Lady’s in reaching the two A camogie finals should not be forgotten either. As always, they fought gamely to the bitter end.

Under 13 F Iomáint

Clonoulty 3-15 Drom 4-12

Referee: Christy McLoughlin.

In what was undoubtedly the “Game of the Finals”, Clonoulty NS and Drom NS produced the proverbial classic. Clonoulty NS were seeking to atone for their narrow defeat in the previous day’s camogie final and Drom NS were striving to win a historic first Under 13 F County Title. This game met all the pre-match expectations and then some. It was a particularly high scoring contest and you could not take your eye of the game as it enthralled spectators from start to finish. James Hammersley shot two early points for Clonoulty, before Drom NS responded with minors from Jamie Bergin and Miriam Campion. James Ryan Clonoulty and Jamie Bergin Drom then traded goals to tie up the scores. A few quick points and an amazing ground stroke by Cathal Bourke that crashed into the roof of the Drom NS ensured that Clonoulty enjoyed a six point half-time lead. Robert Kennedy then scored a phenomenal goal after a long solo run and well placed shot to the top corner. This cut the deficit to three points for Drom. Three more Drom points including two from Robert Kennedy saw the teams level at full time. Extra – Time brought even more entertainment as both teams both threw caution to the wind. A Jamie Bergin goal looked to have sealed victory for Drom, but three quick Clonoulty points saw them within touching distance of the title. Robert Kennedy displayed nerves of steel to land a pressure free for Drom to ensure that both teams finished the game level. After the game it was decided that both teams would share the title which was a fitting way to end such a classic contest.

Cashel BNS 2-07 Two-Mile-Borris NS 2-05

Referee: Michael Jordan

Coming in to this final Cashel BNS were seeking to return to the top table after a few years in the wilderness. They were pitted against the mighty Two Mile Borris NS . Those expecting a wonderful contest did not leave disappointed. An early goal by Patrick Fahy got Cashel off to the perfect start. Two Mile Borris came roaring back with three unanswered points including two from their outstanding captain Anthony McKelvey. Cashel went into half-time with a slender two point lead. A Ross Bonner point stretched their lead to three soon after half-time. A wonder goal by Anthony McKelvey brought Two Mile Borris level. A brilliant goal from a ground shot by Patrick Fahy edged Cashel in front again. James Dillon then brought Two Mile Borris level as the game reached its penultimate stage. Colin Ryan of Cashel BNS and Michael Murphy Two Mile Borris then exchanged points. However Cashel were determined to return the title to the “Town of the Kings” and two late points by Lee Barry and Ross Bonner gave them the historic victory they so badly craved. This was as sporting a contest as you are ever likely to see and was thoroughly enjoyed by all fortunate enough to witness it.

Powerstown 3-07 Kilbarron 4-03

Referee: Michael Jordan

The Under 13 E final had a big act to follow given what took place in the final that preceded this game. The young players of Powerstown and Kilbarron did not disappoint. Powerstown has always been a football stronghold and Kilbarron were hoping to achieve victory after some years in the wilderness. Emmet Moran got Kilbarron off to the perfect start with a well taken goal. Dara Ryan responded with a goal for Powerstown. Kevin Grace Powerstown and Stephen Burke Kilbarron then traded goals. Stephen Quirke, one of the game’s great performers then struck a couple of points to send Powerstown in three points ahead at the break. On the resumption, Glen Cullinane then doubled on high lobbing ball to the net to add to Powerstown’s commanding lead. He then followed this up with a majestic point from the tightest of angles. However Kilbarron were not going to lie down and two fantastic goals by Stephen Burke saw the teams level at full time. Stephen Quirke and Stephen Burke then exchanged a brace of points each before Stephen Quirke sealed a historic victory for Powerstown when he scored a point on the run from near the sideline. It was a score worthy enough to win any game and a heartbreaking end to the match for a wonderfully talented and gallant Kilbarron team.

Gaelscoil Durlas 3-10 Dunkerrin NS 2-04

Referee: Christy McLoughlin.

Dunkerrin NS came into this game attempting to add to their camogie success of 2009. They were also without their inspirational captain Patrick Fogarty. Gaelscoil Durlas were attempting to atone for defeat in the 2009 finals. Conor Stakelum Gaelscoil Durlas and Dylan Maher Dunkerrin NS exchanged early points to settle the nerves for both teams. Keith O Cathail then edged Gaelscoil Durlas in front with an excellent point. Dylan Maher responded in kind for Dunkerrin. Points from Conor Stakelum and Bill O Dorchaí added to a superb goal by Kevin O Donnaile saw Gaelscoil Durlas take a commanding nine point lead into the break. Goals by Stakelum and O Dorchaí after the break added to their already impressive tally. James Doughan then struck one of the “goals of the finals” to give Dunkerrin some hope entering the game’s closing stages. However Gaelscoil Durlas were not going to become complacent and two points from Stakelum and a superb long range point by O Cathail gave them the victory they so richly deserved. Dunkerrin can be justifiably proud of making the County finals in successive years but on this occasion came up against a superior force in Gaelscoil Durlas. Adam Hogan Dunkerrin NS and Conor Stakelum Gaelscoil Durlas NS produced performances worthy enough to grace any playing field.

Templederry 4-08 Tipperary CBS 2-02

Referee: Michael Jordan

In the lead-up to this final Templederry NS had defeated a hotly fancied Kilruane team in a thriller. This final saw them up against the mighty Tipp CBS. Many people wondered in the build-up to the game how the Tipp CBS defence would cope with Templederry’s gifted young forward Darragh Carey. Darragh Carey gave a signal of intent with a wonderfully taken goal after five minutes. Nathan Harding then doubled on a ball to the net to bring Tipp CBS level. Darragh Carey soon had Templederry back in front when he crashed the ball to the net. Tim McCutcheon then made a great penalty save for Templederry NS . A Tommy Lowry goal just before half-time brought Tipp CBS right back into contention. A Templederry goal by Jack O’ Dwyer on the resumption stretched Templederry’s lead to five. Another goal by the mercurial Carey added to Templederry’s impressive lead. Tommy Lowry was not going to give up without a fight however and ably assisted by his wonderful team-mates, they took the battle Templederry. Alas, it was not to be their day however as a goal from Denis O’ Connell and a point by Darragh Carey sealed a historic victory for Templederry NS .

Ballagh NS 8-08 Kilkeary NS 0-02

Referee: Michael Jordan

Ballagh entered this Under 13 G Hurling as warm favourites such were the levels of their displays in the early rounds of this competition. It is hard to recall such a well balanced and skillful team as Ballagh in this competition for many a year. On their biggest day, they did not disappoint and produced a performance that will be talked about for years to come. Kilkeary NS , though facing a superior team on the day, fought gallantly and bravely to the bitter end. An early goal by Aidan Carroll gave Ballagh the perfect start. This was followed by points from Michael Ryan and Declan O’ Dwyer. Goals by Declan O’ Dwyer, Dylan Quirke, Kevin Kearney and Aidan Carroll left Ballagh in an unassailable lead at the break. The second half saw Ballagh produce some wonderful first-touch hurling. They exhibited all the skills in their locker and further goals by Michael Ryan, Aidan Carroll, Dylan Quirke and Jake O’ Donnell sealed a famous victory for Ballagh NS . Aoife Kennedy and Marguerite Young gave heroic displays for Kilkeary NS while Michael Ryan, Aidan Carroll and Dylan Quirke of Ballagh NS are names we are sure to hear much more of in the coming years.

Burgess NS 10-02 Holycross 0-02

Referee: Christy McLoughlin.

In the penultimate game of the finals, Burgess NS produced a wonderful team performance to defeat a gallant Holycross team. Hotly fancied in the build-up to the game, Burgess produced their best performance of the year to see off the challenge of a mighty Holycross team. On the biggest stage of all, Burgess NS showcased their vast array of skills and talent in glorious sunshine at Semple Stadium. Ciardha Maher produced another majestic performance to take the player of the match award for the second time in three years. She was ably assisted by captain Shona O’ Donoghue and Sarah Dunne who were other stars in a superb Burgess NS Team. Goals by Shona O’ Donoghue, Ciardha Maher, Grace Dunne and Sarah Dunne left Holycross NS with a mountain to climb for the second half. Huge credit must be given to the Holycross girls for the way they battled so courageously to the very end. Holycross custodian Mary Dwan was one of the busiest players on view over the two days and she produced some wonderful second half saves for Holycross NS . However, further second half goals by Ciardha Maher, Sarah Dunne and Katie O’ Keefe ensured that Burgess NS ran out very deserving winners.

Match Report Scoil Ailbhe v St. Peter & Paul’s Clonmel

Referee: Michael Jordan.

In the last game of the finals, spectators were treated to a classic between Scoil Ailbhe, Thurles and St. Peter & Paul’s Clonmel. This was as good a game as you are ever likely to see at primary schools level. Thurles came into the game eager to atone for their defeat in the previous two finals. St. Peter & Paul’s Clonmel entered the game hoping to take the title back to the banks of the Suir. It is such a great shame that this game will be talked about for all the wrong reasons as it ended in a huge cloud of controversy. The controversy related to the final score as St. Peter & Paul’s Clonmel thought they had achieved a one point victory and Scoil Ailbhe strongly disputed this. With no agreement reached, both teams left the pitch as the sun descended over Semple Stadium much to the confusion of the large attendance. Before all the commotion, supporters had witnessed a hugely entertaining contest between two very well balanced teams. Some of the striking, catching, hooking and blocking was worthy enough to grace any great hurling occasion. There was a huge amount of talent sprinkled across both teams. It is very important that we do not lose sight of the fact that this was an incredible battle full of wonderful commitment, endeavour, determination and no small amount of skill on the part of these wonderful players. Scoil Ailbhe’s Brian Fallon was a safe pair of hands in their goal and he was secure throughout. Tipperary Primary Game Star Rory Purcell produced a wonderful display for Scoil Ailbhe and he gave an exhibition of hurling from start to finish. Some of his long-range shooting was of the very highest standard. Conor Bowe and Mark Purcell were other players to catch the eye for Scoil Ailbhe. St. Peter & Paul’s Clonmel had their own stars too and possessed leading lights in David Roberts, Ciarán Barrett and Kyle Peters. David Roberts was a commanding presence throughout for them at centre back. Ciarán Barrett dominated at the edge of the square for them and Kyle Peters was full of athleticism and strong running for Clonmel in the middle of the field.  Following the match the Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol officers examined video evidence from the game. They also met with the referee and the relevant schools. After reviewing video evidence, Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol awarded the match to St. Peter & Paul’s Clonmel. This decision was subsequently upheld by the Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol Appeals Committee. It is such a pity that such a wonderful match was marred by such unfortunate controversy at the final whistle.
