Shamrocks 0-22

St Rynagh’s 1-6

Shamrocks cruised to their 1st Intermediate Hurling title since 2000, when the defeated St Rynagh’s by 13 points at O’Connor Pk, Tullamore this afternoon.  Shamrocks dictated the game from the off scoring three points in the first six minutes.   In St Rynagh’s first real attack Donal Moran saw his goal bound shot go just wide of the target.  Stephen Flannery opened St Rynagh’s account with a point on eight minutes, before Declan Tanner and Trevor Darcy swapped points to leave it 0-5 to 0-2 after 10 minutes.  Shamrocks upped the tempo at this stage two wonderful point from Barry Kelly were followed with two from frees from Trevor Darcy, before Declan Tanner stopped the rot with a pointed free.  Rynagh’s then had a great goal chance, but Stephen Flannery saw his effort superbly saved by Gary Hutchinson, at the expense of a 65’, which they failed to convert.

Brian Kearney and Daniel Heffernan extended Shamrocks lead to eight points on 22 minutes.  Two Declan Tanner points reduced the deficit, before Shamrocks finished the first half scoring with a Trevor Darcy pointed free to leave it 0-12 to 0-5 in their favour at the break.

On the resumption St Rynagh’s took the game to Shamrocks in the opening minutes and a point from Colm Daly was quickly followed by a Rian Kelly goal to reduce the deficit to just three points after just 33 minutes.  Amazingly that was to be St Rynagh’s final score and Shamrocks soon took control of the game.  With Paddy Kelly and Ciaran Buckley dominant in defence and with Captain Brian Kearney, Nigel Dunne, John O’Toole and substitute Glenn Mooney causing all sorts of problems up front, there was only going to be one winner and by the time Noel Flynn blew the full time whistle, Shamrocks supporters were already celebrating their return to Senior hurling.

Molloy Enviromental Senior Hurling Championship round-up

posted 26 Jul 2014 02:53 by Offaly GAA   [ updated 4 Aug 2014 12:02 ]

There were wins for Seir Kieran, St Rynagh’s, Shinrone, Drumcullen, Ballinamere and Tullamore in this weekend’s Molloy Environmental Senior Hurling Championship.

On Friday night Joe Bergin scored 2-10 as Seir Kieran defeated Coolderry 2-13 to 0-15 in Shinrone.  Seir Kieran led by 1-7 to 0-3 at the break, but Coolderry fought back and there was just a point between the sides with five minutes left, but Bergin’s second goal sealed the issue for the Clareen side.

On Saturday evening St Rynagh’s got the better of Tullamore in the first of a double header at O’Connor Pk.  The sides were level at 0-7 at half time.  However, a Ger Rafferty goal in the 50th minute proved the difference as St Rynagh’s went on to win by 1-12 to 0-13.

In the second game on Saturday evening Shinrone built up an impressive 1-7 to 0-2 half time lead against Birr.  However, in the second half Birr were a different side and were level at 0-11 to 1-8 with five minutes left.  A late Shinrone rally saw them score 1-2 to run out 2-10 to 0-11 winners.

On Sunday morning the accuracy of Conor Gath proved decisive as Drumcullen defeated Brosna Gaels 1-14 to 1-10, having led 0-7 to 0-4 at the break.

On Sunday evening another double header took place in Tullamore and Ballinamere went a long way towards securing a quarter-final spot as they defeated Kinnitty 1-18 to 1-16.  Kinnitty led by 0-10 to 0-6 at the break, but from the moment Michael Murphy scored a Ballinamere goal in the 36th minute there was only going to be one winner.

In the second game reigning Champions Kilcormac/Killoughey were never troubled as they ran out 15 point winners over Belmont.  K/K led by 2-9 to 0-11 at the break.
