17/07/2018: With all but one of the starting 13 that secured U21C honours in Oct 2017, Kildysart set out their stall for the 2018 campaign in resounding fashion with a thrilling home victory over O’Curry’s, Kildysart 5-16 to O’Curry’s 5-12.

Having agreed to move the match from Saturday to Tuesday, Kildysart gained home advantage but then found themselves at a numerical disadvantage with only 13 players starting the match. However, Kildysart started strong and were first on the scoreboard when Seamus Casey opened their account in the 2nd minute. O’Curry’s were quick to level the match and did the same again after Barry Crehan found the net to leave the sides level at 1-1 with 9 minutes gone. O’Curry’s dominated the next quarter and amounted 2-4, while points from the on-fire Barry Crehan (2) and the mid-field dynamo Kieran O’Brien kept Kildysart in the game, Kildysart 1-4, O’Curry’s 3-5. Aided by the arrival of their two players, Luke McGrath kick-started the Blues revival and back to back goals from Diarmuid O’Donnell drew the side’s level for the first time since the 9th minute at 3-5 each. Points from Kieran O’Brien and Crehan gave Kildysart a slender lead at the halftime whistle, Kildysart 3-7, O’Curry’s 3-5.

Centre back Rory McMahon extended Kildysart’s lead to 3 points but O’Curry’s clawed back two before being awarded a penalty when Ryan Casey fouled in the small square and Kildysart were reduced to 14 men. Despite a brave attempt by goalie Aidan O’Loughlin, O’Curry’s were up by two points 4-7 to 3-8 by the 40th minute. A goal and a point by Crehan reversed the deficit and Kildysart were ahead by two. O’Curry’s added another point but points from McGrath and Casey (2) gave the home side a 4 point lead turning into the last quarter but there were many twists and turns left to come. O’Curry’s, led by their midfielder Cathal Downes, kept attacking through the middle and were rewarded with a goal to reduce the margin to just one. However, the ever-elusive and seemingly tireless Mikey Donnellan found himself one on one with goalie Enda Green to raise the tenth green flag of the night and put Kildysart four in front, 5-12 to 5-8. Two more points from Crehan offset by two from the westerners left the gap at four in favour of Kildysart with 7 minutes remaining on the clock. Crehan increased the lead to five before Kildysart gave away two frees to leave the most dangerous of margins (a goal) between the sides at the start of injury time. O’Curry’s were determined not to leave empty-handed and went on the prowl for a goal and almost closed the gap when a point-blank effort was blasted just inches wide of the net. Kildysart won the resulting kick-out and Conor Donnellan popped over the insurance point to give Kildysart a four-point lead which would see them out. Final score: Kildysart 5-16, O’Curry’s 5-12. Referee: Barry Kelly.

Kildysart scorers: Barry Crehan (2-7, 2f), Diarmuid O’Donnell (2-0), Mikey Donnellan (1-0), Seamus Casey (0-3, 2f), Kieran O’Brien (0-2), Luke McGrath (0-2), Rory McMahon (0-1), Conor Donnellan (0-1).

Kildysart face the winner of Banner v Cratloe in the Quarter Final.

Junior B Claim League Title

posted 3 Jul 2018, 09:10 by Patricia Donnellan

30/06/2018:  There were celebrations in Kilmihil today when Kildysart ended their 37-year wait with a comprehensive win over Moy to claim the Division 6 League title, Kildysart 4-11, Moy 1-07. Their league campaign started with a big win over Moy and the team progressed passed Wolfetones, Kilmihil, Shannon Gaels, Coolmeen and received a walkover from semi-finalists St. Breckans’s to remain undefeated all season.

Seamus Casey got Kildysart on the board with a goal in the second minute. Casey found the top left corner after a combination play from the veteran Ger “Bobby” Kelly and minor Diarmuid O’Donnell. Casey had only goals on his mind but his second effort was saved by Moy goalie Brendan McMahon though O’Donnell followed with a free in the 6th minute to put Kildysart ahead 1-1 to no score. Moy drew level by the 10th minute with a free followed by a goal from Michael Cleary, which goalie Aidan O’Loughlin got a hand to but not enough to stop it. The sides swapped points again and remained level at 1-2 each until the 20th minute. Points from Christy Clancy, Kelly and two from O’Donnell offset by the sole effort from Garrahy gave the Blues a three-point lead at the short whistle, Kildysart 1-6, Moy 1-3. It was a physical encounter up and down the pitch which saw referee Flan O’Reilly hand out 5 yellow cards and which would eventually see Moy midfielders sent off for double offences.

Moy’s Alan Sexton started off the scoring with a screamer sent just north of the crossbar, but the second half really belonged to Kildysart as they dominated the proceedings. Keith “Bomber” Murphy got the first of his two goals when Diarmuid O’Donnell faked a point and offloaded to Murphy who passed the goalie to fire to the net. Murphy raised his second green flag 10 minutes later and the Kildysart stalwart Ger Kelly grabbed the last honours when he soccered the ball into the net. Kildysart had eight scorers on the day and the backs were relentless in denying Moy the opportunity to develop attacking options.
The win and the style of football on display was a fitting tribute to the late Gerry “Sparky” Finucane, who managed the team for many years. Captain Kevin Kelly paid homage to Sparky and the team shared the Cup celebrations with Sparky’s wife Geraldine and his daughters.

Kildysart: Aidan O’Loughlin, Tony Collins, Paul O’Brien, Cormac Ginnane, Diarmuid Ginnane (0-1), Brendan Frawley, Stephen Sheehan, Keith Murphy (2-1), Brian Moloney, Kevin Kelly-captain (0-1), Ger Kelly (1-1), Seamus Casey (1-1, 1f), Diarmuid O’Donnell (0-4, 3f), Eoin Cleary (0-1), Christy Clancy (0-1).

Kildysart Secure Garry Cup Status for 2019

09/06/2018: Both sides had it all to play for when Kildysart travelled to Kilrush for the final round of the Garry Cup on Saturday last. Both teams were fighting to secure their Garry Cup status for 2019, with the losers joining Coolmeen in relegation to Division 3 league. Kildysart set out their stall with two early goals to put Kilrush on the back foot and thanks to dogged defending and Kieran Eyres, who scored 1-9 over the 60 minutes, Kildysart never looked in danger of surrendering their advantage. Final score: Kildysart 3-11, Kilrush 0-13.

Kildysart’s first goal came in the third minute when Neil O’Connor passed to John Murtagh who drew the goalie towards him. Murtagh, in turn, kicked to the unmarked Keith Murphy who lobbed the ball to the back of the net. Five minutes later Kildysart struck again when Mikey Donnellan, who caused trouble for Padraig Brown all evening, offloaded to the advancing Kieran Eyres to slot a bullet passed the keeper. Kildysart goalie Robert Eyres stopped a point-blank attempt at the other end to keep Kildysart’s momentum going. Kildysart continued to dominate possession and Kilrush had to wait til the 19th minute before Matthew Moloney got their opening score. The inspired a purple patch for Kilrush when scores from the speedy Gearoid O’Brien and Cathal Carrig narrowed the gap to 4, Kildysart 2-1, Kilrush 0-3 by the 22nd minute. The remaining minutes saw each side add more scores to their tally, with the pick of them being a lovely point from Kildysart’s Oisin Coyle after taking on four of the Kilrush defence. This left four between them at halftime: Kildysart 2-5, Kilrush 0-7.

The second half saw Kildysart continue to dominate with Kilrush never looked threatening enough to close the four-point gap. In the 40th minute, Kilrush were presented with a golden opportunity when they found themselves in front of an open Kildysart goal. However, the Shamrocks failed to capitalised on this and popped the ball over the bar instead. Kildysart just kicked on from there and the outcome was never in doubt. Kilrush were given another chance to make their mark when Gearoid O’Brien attempted an injury-time penalty but goalie Robert Eyres was well positioned to block the attempt. Final score: Kildysart 3-11, Kilrush 0-13. Kildysart ended their 2018 Garry Cup campaign on 6 points (joint 4th with Cratloe) but can use their improved form as a basis to prepare for Championship.

Kildysart: Robert Eyres, Paul O’Brien, Brian Eyres, Shane McNelis, Michael Eustace, Rory McMahon, John Ginnane, Keith O’Connor, Kieran O’Brien, Kieran Eyres, (1-9, 4f), Keith Murphy (2-0), Neil O’Connor, Oisin Coyle (0-1), John Murtagh (0-1), Mikey Donnellan. Subs: Ryan Casey for J. Murtagh (48 min), Damien Hill for O. Coyle (57 min).

19/05/2018:  The Kildysart Junior’s victory today over Coolmeen (0-20 to 1-11) is enough to secure their place in the Division 6 Final and also guarantees them Division 5 football next year. With five wins on the scoreboard, Kildysart are top of the table and are straight through to the final.  With St. Breckan’s on 7 points, Moy on 6 and Coolmeen on 4, game 6 on the June bank holiday weekend will determine which two teams get to the semi-final.  Kildysart host St. Breckan’s, Moy host last place Kilmihil and Coolmeen host Wolfetones so it’s all still to play for, with the other finalist also getting promoted to Division 5.

Kildysart started brightly and had five points on the board from Diarmuid O’Donnell (x2), Brian Moloney and Seamus Casey (x2) before Enda Haugh opened Coolmeen’s account with back to back frees in the 6th and 11th minutes.  Over the next 15 minutes Kildysart doubled their score with another run of 5 points from Keith Murphy, Stevie Sheehan, Christy Clancy, Casey, & O’Donnell, while Coolmeen added another brace from Paul Hehir and Jamie Brooks to have Kildysart in front 10 points to 4.  Coolmeen’s Sean McMahon cut the lead in half with a goal in the 27th minute but points from Casey and O’Donnell left Kildysart in front by 5 at the break, Kildysart 0-12, Coolmeen 1-4.

Kildysart raced into a 10 point lead by the 13th minute (0-18 to 1-5) with Dermot O’Sullivan getting the opening point of the half.  This was followed by a lovely score from wing back Diarmuid Ginnane after a long run forward.  Coolmeen rallied for a bit with scores from Haugh (x5) and  Sean P McMahon but Kildysart’s lead was never in danger.  Eoin Cleary’s point and Flan Ginnane’s fisted effort earned their names on the scorecard and Kildysart ran out comfortable winners:  Kildysart 0-20, Coolmeen 1-11.

Ladies U16C Champions

14/05/2018:  Kildysart Ladies U16 Claim “C” Cup

The Kildysart Ladies had a resounding victory over Doonbeg in the U16 championship to claim the Division C Cup, Kildysart 6-5 to Doonbeg 2-8.  There was nervousness in the Kildysart camp heading into the final as they suffered their only loss of the campaign to the undefeated Doonbeg but they were determined to come out on top this time.   The match was played in in bright sunshine in Cooraclare on Monday last with Michael Talty taking charge of the affair.

Kyla Foley started off the scoring offensive for Kildysart with a point in the 4th minute and this was quickly followed by a goal from Emily Leahy which the ‘keeper was powerless to stop.  Sinead Kelly, who likes to attack from her centre halfback position, added a point in the 16th minute.  The full-back line of Aoife McMahon, Niamh Moloney and Aoife Cleary were on high alert and were closing down any Doonbeg advances.  Together with the wing backs Sarah Casey and Caitlin Casey they limited the Magpies to just 2 points coming from Amy Linnane and Ailish Dunne in the first half.  Amy Murphy, who along with Foley makes up the dynamic mid-field pairing, added a point before Leahy added the final score of the half.  Halftime score: Kildysart 1-4, Doonbeg 0-2.

There was no room for complacency as Kildysart saw Doonbeg overturn a similar lead earlier in the year.  The Blues got the dream start with a three-goal blitz by Grace Sheerer, Emma Garry and Roisin Donnellan coming in the first three minutes of the restart.  This however inspired a Doonbeg purple patch where they mounted an unanswered 2-3 in a ten-minute spell to bring the score to Kildysart 4-4, Doonbeg 2-5 with 15 minutes remaining.  Lauren Conway and Ailish Dunne would both strike the net for Doonbeg as well as adding three points between them. The north Clare raid would have been greater only for the quick hands of Kildysart goalkeeper Emma Byrne.  Kildysart’s next goal came after Caiti Donnellan won the ball in midfield and passed to Leah O’Donnell who offloaded to Sheerer to find the net.  Doonbeg’s fate was sealed when Sheerer completed her hat trick 2 minutes later thanks to great pressure on the kick outs from Alaina Casey and Rachel O’Sullivan to keep the ball in Doonbeg’s half.  As Foley started off the scoring for Kildysart, so did she end it, with a long-range point in the 51st minute.  Doonbeg never lowered the heads and fought back with the last three scores of the match coming from Abbi Shanahan, Conway and Linnane.  Final score: Kildysart 6-5, Doonbeg 2-8.

Kildysart: Emma Byrne, Aoife McMahon, Niamh Moloney, Aoife Cleary, Sarah Casey, Sinead Kelly (0-1), Caitlin Casey, Amy Murphy-captain (0-1), Kyla Foley (0-2), Caiti Donnellan, Emily Leahy (1-1), Emma Garry (1-0), Grace Sheerer (3-0), Roisin Donnellan (1-0), Leah O’Donnell.

Ladies Jr B Fifth Win on the Trot

posted 16 May 2018, 08:12 by Patricia Donnellan   [ updated 16 May 2018, 08:13 ]

15/05/2018:  The Kildysart Ladies Junior B team claimed their fifth victory on the trot with a 3-6 to 0-7 win over Doora Barefield(2). This is all the more remarkable as it was played the day after U16 ladies team had a hard fought battle to win the “C” Cup championship, Kildysart 6-5, Doonbeg 2-8. With two matches to spare, the ladies have secured their semi-final berth with three wins in the championship (the other 2 wins are from the on-hold league campaign). The team face Cuil Gaels away in their penultimate match on or before 24th June and then host the East Clare Gaels the following weekend. The semi-final is scheduled for 12th August.

Doora Barefield were first on the scoreboard, but captain Sinead Fox levelled the match with a keenly taken free into the wind in the 4th minute. Doora Barefield went two up again before Roisin Donnellan fisted a Catherine Pender cross to the net to give Kildysart a slim margin 1-1 to 0-3 in the 18th minute. However, as Kildysart struggled to get a handle on the impact of the wind, Doora Barefield went on the offensive. The services of goalie Audrey Kelly were called upon numerous times and she didn’t disappoint but the townies pointed three unanswered scores to give them a 2 point advantage at the break: Kildysart 1-1, Doora Barefield 0-6.

Kildysart made positional switches at the break and introduced debutante Emily Leahy and veteran Gillian Finucane to the fore. Though Kildysart were limited to only 2 scores in the first half, the second half was a different matter. Points from Pender and Ashley O’Brien brought the sides level before 3 minutes were on the clock. Donnellan’s second goal came three minutes later putting the Blues in front and they never looked back. O’Brien and Amy Murphy added two more points, while relentless tackling and defending by the backs limited Doora Barefield to a single point which came in the 21st minute to narrow the gap to 4: Kildysart 2-5, DB 0-7. Murphy added another point before Kildysart added a third goal when a long-range effort by Kyla Foley swooped over the goalies head and into the net. Final score: Kildysart 3-6, Doora Barefield(2) 0-7.
Team: Audrey Kelly, Cheryl Ginnane, Chloe Sheehan, Shona Garry, Sarah Casey, Sinead Kelly, Laoise Kelly, Ashley O’Brien (0-2), Emma Byrne, Roisin Donnellan (2-0), Sinead Fox (0-1, 1f), Amy Murphy (0-2), Catherine Pender (0-1), Teresa Grace, Kyla Foley (1-0).

Ger Kelly got Kildysart on the scoreboard with a brace of points in the opening 3 minutes. Further scores from Kieran Eyres, Kieran O’Brien, Mikey Donnellan and Kelly gave Kildysart a 6 points to no score advantage before the sea-siders opened their account in the 21st minute.

Halftime score: Kildysart 0-8, Kilkee 0-5.

The second half was a high scoring affair with Kildysart adding 2-10, of which 1-4 came from the bench, while keeping Kilkee to a single point.

Bosco Ladies Football Claim 2nd Munster Medal

posted 11 May 2018, 08:07 by Patricia Donnellan   [ updated 11 May 2018, 08:18 ]

03/05/2018: St John Bosco Ladies Football teams have claimed double Munster medals when the Junior team beat Meanscoill San Nicolas, An Rinn, Waterford on 3rd May 3-13 to 3-7.  This follows on from the Senior team who beat Gaelcholaiste Chiarraí, Tralee on 11th April by a scoreline of  2-21 to 1-6.  This is the third set of Munster medals for the Kildysart school as the boys’ team also beat Meanscoill San Nicolas earlier in the year.

It was a tight affair with the lead changing hands many times in the first three periods.  The sides were deadlocked three times, with Bosco only pulling level for the last time with a free just after 60 minutes registered on the clock.  However, nine minutes of injury time was played and Bosco blasted two goals to the net for the 6 point win. 

Impact sub Sorcha Donnellan’s goals at either end of the match were pivotal scores for Bosco.  Kildysart were kept scoreless for the first 20 minutes and Donnellan’s first goal settled the team and put them in front 1-0 to 0-2.  A point from Kyla Foley extended the lead but a brace of points from San Nicolas saw the sides’ draw level.  San Nicolas took the lead when they raided for a goal in the 28th minute.  Points from Caiti Donnellan and Sinead McCann just before the first whistle narrowed the gap to only 1 point.  St John Bosco 1-3, San Nicolas 1-4.

It was a physical match with battles up and down the pitch.  The first five minutes of the restart brought parity again at 1-5 apiece.  Over the next 5 minutes Bosco maintained a slight lead 1-7 to 1-6 with midfielder Chloe O’Shea earning her Player of the Match accolade with some tenacious ball winning and setting up scores.  But the Waterford side raided for 2 back to back goals to put them ahead by 5 at the turn of the 4th quarter, 1-7 to 3-6.  Bosco never dropped the heads and the backs defended fiercely to keep San Nicolas to a single score for the remainder of the match while the forwards went on the offensive. There is great depth in the Bosco team as 2-2 was scored from the bench.  A coordinated effort by the Bosco team gave them 6 unanswered points by the 31st minute to draw level once again, Bosco 1-13 to San Nicolas 3-7.  Amy Murphy’s long ball in dropped short and bounced over the goalies head in the 34th minute to give Bosco the lift it needed, however the match wasn’t over yet.  Four more minutes would elapse with San Nicolas pulling out all the stops to get the equaliser, but Sorcha Donnellan would rattle the net again to give Bosco the extra cushion to see out any late rally from Waterford.  Final Score: St John Bosco 3-13, San Nicolas 3-7.

Team: Emma Byrne, Aoife McMahon, Louise Coffey, Jasmine McGrath, Sarah Casey, Sinead Kelly, Emily Leahy, Chloe O’Shea, Amy Murphy-captain (1-0), Sinead McCann (0-6, 2f), Kyla Foley (0-1), Molly McCarthy, Caiti Donnellan (0-1), Roisin Donnellan (0-3, 1f), Rachel Conway.  Subs: Sorcha Donnellan (2-1) for R.
