Ballinacourty signaled their SFC ambitions with a ruthless 15-point dismissal of Rathgormack at Fraher Field on Sunday last.

Skipper Is Keen To “Tipp” Premier Over

Waterford have implemented the game plan established by the Deise's management team to promotion-winning effect.
Kevin Moran is a very happy captain, and with good reason. Leading Waterford out of Division 1B at the first time of asking is a significant box already scratched off the Deise’s ‘to do’ list for 2015. Sunday’s League semi-final clash with Tipperary represents a second [...]

Deise’s NFL campaign ends in another defeat

A dominant first half performance at Páirc Sean MacDiarmada last Saturday was enough to secure a third successive win for Leitrim, leaving Waterford with just one win in the entire campaign.
