AIB Munster Club Senior Hurling Ballygunner v Glen Rovers

‘Forget the past – Sunday is all that matters’

Denis Walsh isn’t inclined to get too carried away about anything. It’s a great trait for a manager to possess. A volcano might be erupting internally if things aren’t going right on the field for his Ballygunner men, but you could never tell from his body language. You’d stand to lose a truckload of money across [...]


Fenor Power into Provincial Decider

The hurlers of Fenor strode into the Munster Junior Hurling Final (where they’ll face Cork’s Dungourney on December 6th in Mallow) following a comprehensive nine-point victory over Ennistymon at Walsh Park on Saturday last. On a heavy surface which had benefitted from the strong winds which blew throughout Friday, Stephen Sullivan’s side made much the [...]

Historic double for WIT over Scottish Shinty sides

The elements may not have been kind in Carriganore on Saturday, but history was created as Waterford IT’s Hurling and Camogie sides pulled off a historic double over their Scottish Student Sport Shinty counterparts. The Scottish teams were made up of players from a number of different universities and colleges, and annually travel to Ireland to [...]


Tramore ease past luckless Lismore

Tramore advanced to the next stage of the Munster Cup in Graun Park on Saturday night when they proved to strong for the WWEC Premier League leaders Lismore. The visitors from the Cathedral Town more than held their own during the opening 45 minutes but the hosts took over completely after the change of ends. Lismore lined [...]

St Declan’s on course to retain Munster Crown

St Declan’s of Kilmacthomas remain on course to retain the title they won so superbly last year following this victory in Carriganore last week. Managed by Kealon O’Neill the current crop of players had to dig deep to grind out this victory against a talented Cashel CBS outfit. Darryl Walsh, the Waterford U17 star and Irish international, [...]


Modeligo Cruise to Junior Crown

Modeligo will travel to Cooraclare in Clare for a 2pm throw-in on Saturday next for a Munster Junior Football Semi Final against Banner champions Coolmeen after easily overcoming Roanmore at Fraher Field in last Saturday’s County Junior decider. Played in a strong wind which blew towards the road goal and on a pitch clearly showing signs [...]

Stradbally left running on fumes

Nemo Rangers, aided by a deeper pool of talent and the ludicrous scheduling which saw Stradbally lining out just 23 hours after regaining the Conway Cup, advanced to the Munster Club Football Semi-Final following victory at Fraher Field on Saturday night. A weary Stradbally outfit, still feeling the after-effects of their county final success over Ballinacourty [...]


Road To Riches claims Clonmel Feature

The main meeting of the year at Clonmel took place on Thursday of last week with the Grade 2 Clonmel Oil Chase occupying centre stage at the Powerstown Park venue. Some five runners went to post for the coveted two and a half mile contest which came complete with a first prize of €30, 875. [...]

The Case for Willie Mullins

If Frankie Dettori had given Max Dynamite a better ride in the Melbourne Cup a couple of weeks ago and the horse had won instead of finishing a gallant and fast closing second then surely Willie Mullins would have had a very strong claim on the Irish Sports Person of the Year award for 2015. Victory [...]
