Mahony steers Waterford home

Nine years on from their last competitive win at Headquarters the Waterford Senior Hurlers proved too strong for a resilient Dublin on Saturday night last in the Allianz National League. This Deise outfit, although many just out of under 21 grade, were well worth their five point victory and more important the two league points which at the end of the day could well prove the difference between qualifying or being an "also ran". As part of a double header, Dublin and Mayo contested the second game in the Football League, there was a reasonable attendance but not quite the thirty five thousand that were there when the football started. Shows the power of the "big ball" game in the Capital and what success does for a county. That said no one could fault the Dublin hurlers

Super Blues stun Cabinteely

Waterford FC 3 - Cabinteely 0

The new look Waterford FC team got their campaign up and running in front of almost 1, 500 fans at the RSC on Friday night last. The previous week they had lost one nil away to Athlone Town and the management team of Alan Reynolds and Pat Fenlon made three changes to the starting eleven. Dave Mulcahy, Davy McDaid and Anthony McAlavey came in and Garry Comerford, Dean O'Halloran and Shane O'Connor took their place on the `subs bench. Dave Mulcahy played in the heart of the defence with Patrick McClean switching to left-full back. McAlavey played in midfield and he scored a truly wonderful goal. Davy McDaid, making his full debut also proved his worth and he scored two goals on a night that the largest attendance for many years loved.

Footballers just edged out in southeast derby

The Waterford Senior Footballers travelled to Innovate Park in Wexford on Sunday last in Round Three of the Allianz National league. Having performed superbly well in their opening games against London and Wicklow, there were high hopes that the Deise with the same commitment and determination, another win could be chalked on the board. Wexford were also coming into the game on the back of two polished performances against both Leitrim and Limerick. These wins had installed the Slaneysiders as one of the fancied teams to clinch promotion. Before the throw-in manager Tom McGlinchy and his selectors made one personel change with Stephen Dalton coming into the defence. Waterford played with the elements at their back in the opening half and led 0-2 to 0-1 within the opening ten minutes with points from Donie

Poor start for new Blues

Athlone Town 1 - Waterford FC 0

This was not what the doctor ordered. After weeks of excitement a large group of supporters made their way to Athlone on Friday last in high spirits and convinced that the new look Blues would bag all three points and get the new season up and running but following the 90 minutes it was the new look Athlone team who were celebrating. The Waterford team did not really gel and it was clear that this was the first time they were playing a competitive game together. There is no doubt whatsoever that this current Blues team is one of the best we have seen for a very long time so hopefully with another weeks training under their belts they will get up and running against Cabinteely at the RSC on

There was a huge crowd in Walsh Park on Sunday last for the visit of All-Ireland champions Tipperary in the second round of the Allianz National Hurling League. Both Waterford and the visitors had put up winning performances in their opening round against Kilkenny and Dublin so this was a huge game as far as league position was concerned. With Deise bainisteoir Derek McGrath and his Tipperary counterpart Michael Ryan still in the process of formulating their panels, it was again an opportunity for players to lay down a marker for the Summer championship. The weather played it's part as the afternoon turned out quite pleasant although, as one would expect with the rain during the week, the underfoot conditions were soft. There was nothing by way of advantage in the elements with just a very slight breeze with Waterford

Patrick McClean, the brother of James McClean is settling in well at the RSC since he moved here from Derry City.

At the minute, I'm settling in well. Training has been very good and I'm happy to be here. When I heard about it all, I was a bit wary to be honest but when I came down here and saw the standard of the player that we've signed, I'm really delighted to be here.

“I'm looking forward to see how we get on. There is a lot of expectations that we are going to be promoted but we have to manage that. It's obvious we’ll be pushing for it but we know that we have a battle on our hands so we'll see how it goes.

McClean was also surprised to be captain in a number of pre-season friendlies. “I've settled in

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

  • OUR VIEW

    Attack in LondonThe recent Islamist terror attack in London is the latest reminder that the extremists have not gone away and have not given up. As one commentator succinctly put it the weapons at the man's disposal, a car and a knife, are the sort of implements that everyone in the country has access to. In that context it is becoming much clearer that it is the environments in which these people are allowed to grow and develop their warped ideologies that are the most pressing areas of concern when it …
