A comparison of the death of tommy grimes and good man is hard to find

Due to Limericks League semi final along with injuries the team were down upwards of 15 players for this fixture Nevertheless we welcomed back David Breen for his first outing of 2017 and he was going well up until his departure due to injury.

It was also good to see Kevin Downes togged out and performing the warm up with the team and progressing nicely on his recovery road. Further points from the Breen brothers David and Adrian put us 3 points up before Adian Breen raised a green flag to leave it 1-8 to 0-5. Adare had Willy Griffin in great free taking form and he reduced the gap to two points at the break 1-8 to 0-9.

Half time substitutes Dean McLoughlin and Pat McCarthy came on and did a good job with Dean scoring the first point of the second half from way out the field.

Further points from Adrian Breen 3Kevin Ryan free and a superb line ball and the two final points from wing back Niall Buckley looked to have sealed the win. However further indescretion allowing Willy Griffin to level the game up and finish 1-16 to 0-19. Evan Condon in goals playing well varying his puck outs,while the half back line of Pa Guinane,James O Brien and Niall Buckley particularily prominent.

Up front Adrian Breen with a personal tally of 1-5 was excellent along with brother David along with Kevin Ryan. Na Piarsaigh 1-16 Adare 0-19 Team: Unfortunately a bad day at the office and with eight weeks to Championship it has to be a little worrying for the management.

All comers are welcome with registration on Tueday from 9. The parish is looking great and litter free. Our opponents are Doon who are attempting to stop a 6 in a row. A visit from a hugely improved Parteen side nearly caught us on the hop but once the team got focussed — helped perhaps by a few choice words at half time — we did improve in the second half.

It was a Friday night fixture which required lights toward the end but both teams battled with real heart with little easy ball given away.

Many of the players turned up again the next morning at 9am for training which showed a real understanding of the work needed for the next set of fixtures. Seven days after the Parteen encounter the team headed to the North Campus UL GAA facility for a season finale of two 30minute games on a fast surface on a lovely autumn evening.

The team fought really hard to stay in touch against Ahane into a stiff breeze and really opened up after half time which was great for the confidence. The fast pitch and quick ball seemed to suit also for the second game with Na Piarsaigh improving as the night wore on. Murroe-Bother provided the opposition with no shortage of skillful hurling and a real test for our lads.

Our usual slow start was always going to kill us and we witnessed a display from a fine strong talented Crokes side which we can only learn from.

A windy, mucky, wet day proved a striking comparison to the fast pitch of the previous Friday, which led to a very flat Na Piarsaigh performance.

  • We are very proud of them both;
  • Still short one or two regulars we began slowly and found ourselves 5 points in arrears after 5 minutes following the concession of an early goal;
  • A wet and windy night made for a very difficult encounter but nonetheless they duly battled bravely;
  • Sellers prize went to Maura Lynch and Pat Gleeson the house draw.

The third game was another tough encounter where hopefully we will learn from but we at last got a performance for the last game of the day where we were unlucky not to get something from the game, going down marginally to the home side. Played in Mick Neville Park Rathkeale on a very good surface we began the game well into the teeth of a strong breeze. Kevin Ryan raised the first of our green flags when he was on hand to knock it a rebound.

The accuracy of Pat Gleeson from placed balls was excellent as we kept the score ticking b along as did the Monagea free taker. We led at half time 3-5 to 1-8 having played into the stiff breeze.

Despite the concession of a late penalty goal and a small bit of luck at the end we held out and progressed to a semi final spot. The management will no doubt be happy to get over that one but no doubt plenty to improve on going forward.

A decent performance by a team with little training who battled bravely for long periods and were well in the game mid way through the second half. However some over elaboration and lack of accuracy put pay to our second half resurgence. Will Henn kept our score tipping along with some good frees and also dispatched a penalty in the first half following a good run by Donal O Connaill.

We can nevertheless take heart from some aspects of play and no doubt will prosper from the experience. Played in Bruff by two teams who have had many a great battle over the years and this was to prove similiar. A close fought first half with both free takers showing excellent skill and ability to penalise any infractions. Ronan Lynch chipping in with 5 first half frees to add to points from captain David Dempsey and Peter Casey.

The decisive score of the half coming from David Dempsey who received a great pass from late addition Kevin Daly and David duly dispatched the sliothar to the back of the Doon net. We headed into the break 4 points to the good 1-7 to 0-6. The second half was a great show of resilience by the team with some excellent fielding from Conor Boylan and Tommy Grimes along with some brilliant defending from Jerome Boylan, Mike Andrews and Evan O Brien.

We got some crucial scores in the second half from Conor Boylan 2Peter Casey 2 Kieran Daly and 3 Ronan Lynch frees to seal what is now a history making five in a row.

Our net minder Eoghan Foley was excellent throughout withstanding some late pressure to keep Doon at bay. It was a last minute William Henn goal that sealed the victory and a passage through to the knockout stages with one group game v Adare to go. Final score Na Piarsaigh 1-15 Patrickswell 0-17 Team: Alan Finnegan won the sellers prize and Frank Holohan the house draw. We got off to a brilliant start and led 2-6 ton0-1 after 20 minutes.

Match Reports/Notes 2015/16

Another super blue for the club!! With nothing to play for only pride it was always going to be a difficult game to get an apetite for, and with the Junior hurlers now involved in the later stages of the Junior Championship we were down to the bare bones for this one. Nevertheless we fielded a good team and began well with some excellent possession hurling into the teeth of a very strong wind and scored some very good points courtesy of David Dempsey 3Peter Casey,Adrian Breen and some excellent frees from Shane Dowling 7 had us a point to the good at the break despite conceding a soft goal on the stroke of half time 0-12 to 1-8.

The second half was not so convincing and the concession of some very soft goals ultimately proved to be our downfall. The strong breeze causing chaos on the flight of the ball into the wind and Ballybrown capitalised on indecision in our defence.

Overall it has been a disappointing year to date for the lads but no doubt with rest and recuperation over the winter will be back stronger in 2017 Final Score: A good workmanlike performance but scope for a big improvement come County quarter final time. We led 1-11 to 0-6 at the break with our goal coming from Conor Boylan. Despite playing into the breeze in the second half the lads hurlerd well and further scores from Pat Gleeson 4Pat McCarthy and a second green flags for Conor Boylan sealed a good performance and a final score of 2-16 to 0-13 in our favour.

We were unfortunately not blessed with the best of weather but nevertheless some great golf was played and a very enjoyable 2 days was had by all.

We went into the weekends games top of group 1 but with no guarantee of qualification such was the closeness of teams in the group.

Both teams knowing a win would guarantee a semi final berth so alot was riding on the game. We went into the game minus two regulars from our previous game but those who detputisted were more than capable We began the game very well and had points from Will O Donoghue, Pauric Kennedy and Eoghan Kehilly to lead 3 points to 1 after ten minutes.

Further first half points from Eoin Hogan freesTommy Grimes and Kieran Daly had us only a point behind at the bresk 1-5 to 0-7. Another Will O Donoghue point had us back in front which was again canceled out by our opponents.

Kieran Daly had our 12th point but once again St Pats equalised. Despite late chances to win the game it finished all square 1-9 to 0-12 and it was enough for us to finish top of the group and into a semi final spot. We now await the winners of a quarter final between Dromcollogher Broadford and champions NewcastleWest in a few weeks time.

Throw in for this one is 3. Following two consecutive defeats to Kilmallock and Doon in the first two rounds of the championship, it was imperative that we get back to winning ways.
