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

Mayfield end Ballyduff dream

It was a bridge too far on Sunday last in Mallow for Waterford Junior Hurling Champions Ballyduff Lower as they failed in their bid to add the Provincial crown to their domestic title. It has been a terrific year for the club from the Kilmeaden/Ballyduff area with their first priority, a return to the Intermediate hurling grade for 2017, safely tucked away, they just failed in a bid to achieve an historic junior double as they were beaten in extra time in the county football decider. That said the Reds will look back on "what might have been" while for the rest of us it was a truly remarkably successful twelve months for the lads. Many believed that it would take a couple of years for the club to regain their Intermediate status but through hard work

St Saviour's bow put to classy Newfoundwell

Umbro FAI Junior Cup. 5th Round

It was very much a case of cometh the hour cometh the man for Newfoundwell in Clonard Park on Sunday last. The visiting striker Ciaran Carroll scored the only goal of the game right on the stroke of the hour mark and his header was enough to separate the two teams. St Saviour's can have no complaints about the result because they never hit any sort of form. Newfoundwell on the other hand played some excellent football at times and they fully deserved their place in Round 6 of the competition. Joe Twomey did test the visiting goalkeeper Brian Smith after 2 minutes with a low shot from 20 yards but then the Co Louth side took control of proceedings. Craig O'Connor, a very fine winger got in a

Crokes power home

Following an incredible journey which saw Nire reclaim the Watereford Senior Football Championship and with it take the Conway Cup back to Ballymacarbry, their campaign ended in disappointment last weekend when they suffered a defeat at the hands of Dr Crokes from Killarney. Following a semi-final win over Carbry Rangers the Cork kingpins, there was real hope that Nire could string together another huge effort and claim a first Provincial crown for the Deise. Facing them was perhaps the best club side in the country at present,

Kerry champions Dr Crokes. The Killarney based outfit can name in their squad players of the calibre of Colm "Gooch" Cooper, Jonny Buckley and Ambrose O'Donovan among an array of talent that has represented All-Ireland winning Kerry teams at both senior and underage level. A serious outfit that many in Kerry circles

Waterford too strong for North Tipperary

The Waterford team have moved to the top of their qualifying group in the FAI Inter League Youth Cup following this superb victory in Ozier Park on Sunday afternoon last. They had already beaten the Cork League 2-1 away so they simply cannot be caught now and they can look forward to the new year and hopefully another home draw. Manager Anthony Brown and his assistant Jim ``Dukie” Whelan have assembled a fine squad of players and this could be the year a long famine comes to an end.

The hosts could have taken the lead inside the opening three minutes of the tie when Darragh Wall sprayed the ball out to the right for Daniel Ogundele, who got the better of his marker but his effort was inches wide of Kuba Beben near post.

It was

Magnificent Shanahan steers Lismore ship

Saturday last was a Red Letter day for Lismore as they landed their first Munster Hurling crown following a thoroughly deserved win over Kerry Senior champions Kilmoyley. The men from the Kingdom have been a powerhouse at domestic level and supply a number of players to their county setup. They play in the senior championship on home soil and have accumulated twenty two titles thus far. Lismore could take nothing for granted as the Kerry champions have already proven a formidable outfit in beating the Limerick winners Monaleen pretty comprehensively. Incidentally Monaleen had a preliminary outing in the competition when they overcame St Josephs of Clare. Kilmoyley were never going to be pushover. On the other hand Lismore were quite impressive in disposing of both Bandon and Newport although on both occasions they had to draw
