Double Delight Deise

Last weekend saw both the Waterford Fotballers and Hurlers garner points in the Allianz National Leagues. On a bitterly cold and wet Saturday evening the Tom McGlinchy managed footballers claimed their second win of the current league campaign when they came through by eight points (1-17 to 1-9) in Carriganore. Having comprehensively beaten London the previous weekend there was every reason to believe that another two points against Wicklow was quite achieveable. In the event the fans who turned up at Carriganore were treated to a display of determination and indeed, no little skill from Waterford as they led throughout and thoroughly deserved their second win of the current campaign. There was a winning belief within the squad and if that can be carried forward for the rest of the games, starting with unbeaten Wexford in two weeks

Lee Power, the new owner and chairman of Waterford FC was present at the game against Galway United at the RSC on Wednesday night last and the following morning he spoke about the past few months, which needless to say have proved to be a roller-coaster ride for all supporters of the club and of course the management personnel of the four teams and the new playing staff. Lee was bullish about the coming season and indeed for the long term future of the club. “A lot has happened since I last spoke to the media but I’m pleased about how things are shaping up,” said Lee before continuing.

“Obviously, we have Pat (Fenlon) and Rennie (Alan Reynolds) in looking after the team and we’ve a lot of players signed. There is a lot of

Waterford ease to win over kingdom

The Waterford Senior Hurling team saw a number of established players back in the starting lineup for the visit of Kerry to Dungarvan last weekend. Over the last number of weeks the management under Derek McGrath have used the Munster Hurling league as an opportunity of looking at the extended panel and indeed, many who have not previously been involved with the county panel. Under the circumstances the management, although suffering defeat, will certainly have been heartened by the display of many of the players on view in those earlier games and no doubt some of the debutants will have posted notice for inclusion in the Allianz National League squad. On Saturday last the men from the Kingdom were the visitors to Fraher Field. While this game was originally scheduled for a Kerry venue, the

Clare just get over the line

In keeping with recent games Waterford Senior Hurling manager Derek McGrath and his management team put out a very inexperienced side to face Clare in the Munster League on Sunday last in Fraher Field. No doubt the De La Salle clubman is giving all those players on the panel and the extended panel an opportunity to copperfasten a place in the squad as we face the Allianz National League in a few weeks time. Nontheless this again was an opportunity for a young Waterford fifteen against a Clare squad who carried a number of their intercounty stars in tow.There was less than a thousand people in Dungarvan for this game on a cold but nice enough day for the middle of Winter. The banner led by 0-5 to 0-2 after the opening ten minutes thanks

    Travel chaos as strike likely to go aheadWith the Bus Eireann strike for February 20th looking as if it will go ahead it seems that the workers in that particular section of the C.I.E. company will get the overwhelming support from their co-workers in Bus Eireann and Irish Rail. This will mean that public transport in the country will effectively come to a standstill next week. Considering that some bus stations share the same facilities between Bus Eireann and Dublin Bus it is understandable that some p …
