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.

 

GAA President Pays Tribute to Dermot Hogan

Offaly Mourns Death of Dermot Hogan

posted 24 Jul 2014 05:05 by Offaly GAA   [ updated 25 Jul 2014 01:27 ]

Offaly GAA was plunged into mourning last evening with the news of the untimely death of U21 Hurling Manager Dermot Hogan (Age 45) from Coolderry, following an accident while working at his home.  Offaly County Chairperson, Padraig Boland in offering his heartfelt sympathy to Dermot’s wife and family, said that “Dermot’s positivity towards Offaly hurling was infectious, and remarked how following his first year in charge of the Offaly U21’s (2014) Dermot had learned a lot and was really looking forward to the Challenge ahead in 2015”.  He went on to say that “while Dermot’s loss to Coolderry and Offaly hurling will be huge, it pale’s into insignificance when compared to the loss that will be felt by his wife Marie and family and our thoughts and prayers are with them at this extremely sad time”

Dermot Hogan was appointed Manager of Offaly U21 hurlers in 2014 following an impressive record with his club Coolderry, having managed them to Minor success in 2008 while also steering the Coolderry men to the Offaly U21 title in 2010.  Hogan was also a selector with the Offaly Minor hurling team in 2013.

Dermot is survived by his wife Marie, daughters Lisa, Rachel and Ciara, parents Kieran and Margaret, brothers Kevin and Eugene and a large circle of relatives and friends.
