West Junior B Championship Cashel KC 1-14 Eire Og 2-06 - Our juniors got their assault on the West Championship off the ground with a deserved win over Eire Og. Having suffered a heavy defeat to the same opposition last year this was a decent turnaround for the panel. A strong wind tried its best to ruin the game as a spectacle but Cashel hunted and harried in packs against the wind in the opening half and enjoyed a five-point half time lead for their efforts 0-7 to 0-2. The second half saw Cashel threaten to pull away but Eire Og to their credit kept at it and two 21-metre goals kept them right in it. But when Robert Anglim was upended with a late challenge Timmy Moloney showed he still has plenty to offer smashing the ball to the net to extinguish any hope for the opposition. Overall this was a pleasing win for the team that will hopefully see good improvement in the weeks ahead. Team: O Quirke, PJ Mooney, B Minogue, C Ryan, A Cummins, D Delahunty, C Minogue, D Shiels, MK O’Dwyer, P Taylor (0-2), Wm Fitzelle (0-1), Eoghan Ryan, R Anglim (0-), Timmy Moloney (1-6), R Doherty (0-1). Subs Fionnain Ryan for D Shiels, Cormac O’Dwyer for R Doherty, Paddy Morrissey for PJ Mooney & Alan Coughlan for R Anglim.

Juvenile News Peil Na n-og glory for U.14’s - Cashel defeated Clonoulty to win the West Tipperary Peil Na N-og Final and in doing so qualify for the County section of the County Peil Na N-og. Victory was richly deserved with a fantastic team display.Cashel had a strong start from the very beginning with an early goal from Eoghan Connolly and a point shortly after from Jack Price. As the game progressed Cashel scored two more points to make it 1:3 to no score Cashel were then awarded a penalty which Colin Ryan dispatched to the net. Cashel were well in control going into half time with a 2:3 to no score lead. After the restart Clonoulty put some pressure on the Cashel boys scoring a goal and a point, but the lads held strong with fantastic defence and midfield work, moving the ball quickly to our accurate forward unit to score a further 3 more points. This was a fantastic team performance, and heartiest congratulations to all the team and selectors involved and we wish them well in the remainder of the championship. Scorers on the night: Eoghan Connolly- 1:1, Colin Ryan-1:0, Jack Price- 0: 2, Alex Marshall- 0: 1, Rodrigo Consalez-0: 1, Brian Fitzpatrick- 0: 1.

Community Games - Our U.11’s trying to repeat the brilliant run of last years team played Ballyclerihan in the opening round of the Community game U.11 hurling. A decent home support attended to shout on the lads and it was clear from an early stage Cashel were far too strong for our opponents. Having met in the final last year we were expecting a tougher game but this result was never in doubt as Cashel raced into an early lead with some fine scores and were in front 5-6 to no score at halftime. The second half continued in the same vein as the first with Cashel pulling further head and running out convincing winners. The goalkeeper and six backs were tight and fed good ball into the forwards who duly did their job. We can be very optimistic this group of players can go a long way in this years competition as they display great potential but vital we continue to train hard on Mondays and Saturdays. We look forward to round two well done to the following panel; Ross Whelan, Cian Moloney, Michael Delaney, TJ Barron, Aaron Breen, Jake Cotter, Eoghan Murphy, Aaron Moloney, Conor O’Dwyer, Jack McGrath, Kevin Gayson Molloy, Danial moloney, Evan Moloney, Tommy Delaney, James O’Sullivan, Dylan Foley, Ethan Gayson Molloy, Padraig Brosnan, Donal Ryan, Ross Minogue.

Hurling Blitz - Next Sunday May 6th we are invited to Na Piarsaigh Hurling club Cork for an under 11’s hurling blitz. All players are asked to be in Leahy Park on Sunday morning next for 8.30am sharp and we will travel on by bus to Na Piarsaigh. It will be an all day affair and although the host club will provide refreshments we would ask parents to provide the boys with a packed lunch. We can’t give an exact time of our arrival back to Leahy Park, so the selectors will call ahead to parents giving an indication of our arrival back to Cashel.

West Minor A Football - Cashel’s minors breathed new life into their faltering Football campaign with a convincing victory over Rockwell/Rosegreen combination. Havening suffered three defeats on the bounce only a victory would save our slim chances. But the lads to their credit went about their business in good fashion and ran out easy winners on a scoreline of 2-14 to 0-3. To be fair to this panel and on closer analysis we were more than a match for strongly fancied Golden in round one, should have beaten Aherlow/Lattin in round two and while Arravale did beat us well we opened them at times as well. So with a West Semi final looming the mentors and players should approach with plenty of confidence in the knowing they are more than a match for any of the remaining sides.

Tipperary Minor Hurling - The club would like to extend its best wishes to Simon Delaney and Dylan Fitzelle both members of the Tipperary minor Hurling panel as they play Kerry in the first round of the Munster Championship.
