Ath-Bliain faoi mhaise

As we say goodbye to 2016 and the New Year comes rushing in, we are afforded an opportunity of looking back on the success or otherwise of our teams throughout the past twelve months. Most will focus their attention on National events and achievements and quite rightly so. On the field of play the Deise had a successful run in many competitions and those achievements filled us with the euphoria of success. Pride of place however must go to the fabulous under 21 All-Ireland succes. Mind you it would be remiss not to also highlight the success of our club representatives and the terrific displays of our ladies in both football and camogie. However, much of those events will already have been reviewed in many column inches. Over the next few weeks, I would like to deviate from

Crucial goals see De la Salle home

It was back to back Under 21 titles for De La Salle last weekend as they retained their grip on the County crown on a 2-17 to 1-14 scoreline over a gallant Abbeyside. Following a close encounter with combined outfit Erins Own/Ferrybank in the Eastern decider the Stephen Street outfit were installed as favourites to clinch the championship but were well aware that Abbeysaide, conquerors over a fancied Dungarvan in the Western decider, would be another hurdle to cross.

The opening half saw very little between the sides with both teams locked together on 0-4 each after fifteen minutes. The trend continued with Abbeyside just getting their noses in front as the break loomed. However it was the city outfit who made the first breach with Brian Cunningham hammering a goal just before the whistle.

Waterford crowned Munster champions

The Waterford Under 16 team were crowned champions of Munster in Carrigaline on Sunday afternoon last. Following excellent victories over North Tipperary, West Waterford-East Cork and the hot favourites Cork in the semi-final the team managed by John Furlong were in good spirits as they travelled to Co Cork at the weekend and they turned in yet another superb performance.They dominated the entire 80 minutes and they will now play Donegal at home in the All-Ireland semi-final in January.

Waterford carved out a great opening to take the lead inside three minutes when Mike Nzongong did well to pick out Greg Waters who in turn sent Cameron Power clear down the left side but he dragged his left-footed wide of the far post.

Niall O’Keeffe had a chance for a Blues side that started on the front foot on

Convention time on the horizon

It really is a sign that the year is quickly ebbing away when the topic of discussion is the annual Waterford GAA Convention. The 2016 meeting takes place on Thursday next in Dungarvan and while finance will probably dominate some of the evening it is fair to say that in recent times there seems to have been an upturn in the Board's fortunes. While costs are still above what we would all like them to be, there appears to be healthy situation within the financial spectrum and the audit shows thet in 2016 the Board shows a healthy Eu51k profit. This will obviously be "music" to the ears of those in attendance on Thursday and indeed wider afield. No doubt it will also be stressed that it can so quickly turn in the other direction. However

Villa's long unbeaten record broken

Villa 2 - Dungarvan United 3

The Villa have been in great form during the past few months and two weeks ago they booked a place in the last 32 of the FAI Junior Cup by defeating Ballinasloe Town away in Co Galway. They are also chasing Hibernians all the way in the Waterford Premier League. On Saturday night last in Connors Park they were hoping to keep their great run going when they welcomed Dungarvan to their home ground and when they took an early lead it looked as if normal service would continue but they came up against a Dungarvan team who were determined to move into the open stage of the Munster Junior Cup and following a terrific 90 minutes of football it was the Old Borough side who advanced in the provincial competition.

Thomas Barr crowned Athlete of the Year at the 2016 Irish Life Health National Athletics Awards

Thomas Barr (Ferrybank) was named as the Athlete of the Year at the Irish Life Health National Athletics Awards Ceremony which took place on Wednesday 30th of November in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Santry. Barr grabbed the country’s attention with his sparkling performances at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro which culminated in an agonising, but magnificent, fourth place finish in the 400m Hurdles in a world class time of 47.97 seconds.

Considering the injury problems he had leading up to the games and losing out on much valuable competition his performances in Rio were superb. First in his heat he came second with a season's best time to easily qualify, then in the semi final which he won he broke his own Irish record
