Well done to our Reporters of the Week: David Ryan, 5th class, Scoil Mochaomhog Naofa, Two Mile Borris & Jamie O Keeffe and Adam Skeffington Cashel BNS.


Cup Visit By David Ryan, 5th class, Scoil Mochaomhog Naofa, Two Mile Borris.

Today, Niall O’ Sullivan, Marianne Murphy, Eric Fanning, Michealla Graham and Jack Shehan came in with 3 All-Ireland cups. The Minor football, U-16 camogie and U-14 Tony Forrestal cups came into our school, Scoil Mochaomhog Naofa. Andy Ryan and 3 men from the county board came in too. It started off with a great speech by Andy Ryan. Andy was telling everyone about the matches. The Minors were 11 points down but they won it in the end. The U-16s were 10 points down at half time but when Andy came in they looked determined to win and they won. The U-14s were 11 points down but they fought back and won the game. Then Andy said “Never give up”. Marianne Murphy, past pupil of Scoil Mochaomhog Naofa, had the next speech and she said “Never give up” as well. Next she said something everyone was waiting for, when she said “No homework” to Mrs Doherty. Everyone cheered like mad. After that Mrs Doherty had a speech and agreed with Marianne. Soon after the cross-country team medals were given out to the 3rd and 4th class boys, 3rd and 4th class girls and 5th and 6th class boys. At last everyone got a picture with the cups and everyone went back to their classes.                     


Kilkeary N.S. Begin Their Football Campaign

On Wednesday September 21st 2011 Kilkeary N.S. began their football 7 a side campaign against our neighbours Gortagarry N.S. Toomevara was the venue and conditions were very poor for both teams. In spite of the weather it was a very enjoyable contest with Gortagarry proving too strong on the day. Our second game was against Ballinaclough in Nenagh on Friday last. Again weather conditions were terrible but both teams did their best. Ballinaclough were that bit better but Kilkeary battled hard and hit the post a couple of times. So Kilkeary have lost their two opening games but we're looking forward to our next two matches and hopefully our first win.

Kilkeary N.S. panel: Aoife Fogarty, Cathal Ryan, Ciara Kennedy, Christopher O'Meara, Shaun Hogan, Ciaran Grace, Adam Fitzgerald, Eileen Gleeson, Megan Dunne, Mary O'Brien, James Meagher, Emmet O'Brien, Brian Murphy.


Cashel Footballers Get Off To A Good Start By Jamie O Keeffe and Adam Skeffington at Leahy Park

On 5 October, St John the Baptist BNS played Gaelscoil Durlas in an exciting game of football.  Cashel’s captain Michael Morrissey and vice captain Sean Ryan led them out onto the field.  Gaelscoil Durlas got the first score of the game playing with a strong breeze.  For Cashel, Jamie O Keeffe, Rodrigo Goncalves,  Murragh McDermot, Eoghan Connolly and Scott Scanlon got the scores in the first half. At half time, Cashel were up 5-4 to 0-1. Cashel made a lot of changes at half time.  In the second half, Gaelscoil Durlas were on the attack and Sean Ryan made a magnificent block down from what looked like a certain goal.  It was probably one of the best block downs of the match. The blocking down of both teams was very good throughout as was the kicking and handpassing.  Cashel got the upper hand early in the second half with scores from Jak Hayes, Luke Quinlan, Tomás Skeffington and Gabrielle Perera.  Gaelscoil Durlas then began to up their game and put the Cashel defence under pressure scoring some lovely goals.  Eventually, after a good battle, Cashel ran out winners on a scoreline of 7-6 to 3-4. Cashel are happy now that they have won their first game.  Next up for both teams is another tough challenge against Holycross.




Our football competitions have now begun in earnest. We are encouraging all schools and any “budding journalists” to send in match reports from their upcoming games. We would love to receive reports from schools on all you do to promote Gaelic Games within your school. We would encourage all schools to get their senior pupils to submit reports for our weekly match report competition. Schools could get pupils to write about a special GAA event taking place in their school e.g. The Tipp Minor Footballers Visiting With The Cup, Medal Presentation for School Leagues, School Player of the Year Article, etc. We look forward to hearing from you.
