Kate Veale returns with a victory in her favourite sport

The Indoor season began last week end with a Munster Championship fixture in Nenagh on Saturday and Sunday and there were a number of Waterford successes. Back in action after an absence of several years in the sport of race walking in which she made a name for herself on the World stage under age was Kate Veale West Waterford AC. She competed in the senior 3000 metres walk and made a winning return in a time of 15 minutes 9 seconds which was well outside her best but still quite a respectable effort for her comeback race. In the past year or so she had been running in road races so she had kept reasonably fit. For Waterford AC it was a very successful week end with their athletes winning

Waterford make good start but fade

The opening game of the 2107 season saw the Waterford Senior Hurlers face Limerick in the rearranged venue of Fraher Field on Sunday last. It is difficult to assess teams so early in the year and with the visitors now under the management of John Kiely there was every reason to believe that the Shannonsiders would be well up to making a positive impression for their newly appointed bainisteoir. Waterford under manager Derek McGrath had listed just one of the championship side from 2016 and he and his backroom team were opening the door for players to lay down a marker for the new season.

Waterfortd were quickly to the pace of the game and could conceivably have had one "in the net" after just ninety seconds as Roanmore clubman Billy Nolan saw his penalty saved

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
