Nire back on top

Fraher Field in Dungarvan was in top condition for the final of the Waterford Senior Football Championship on Sunday last. Both protagonists Nire and Ballinacourty had shown impressive form on their way to the decider with both clubs making every effort to wrest back the Conway Cup. Stradbally the present holders of the competition had been beaten in 2014 by Nire and 2013 by Ballinacourty so there was no doubt both clubs had a "feel" for winning, With the winner going into the Provincial competition in a week's time there was every reason to believe that they would leave everything on the pitch to achieve a result last weekend. Although conditions could be described as mild, what little there was helped Ballinacourty in the opening half.

Nire were quickly on the attack in the opening minutes and Conor

Carrick and Crystal draw in Premier League

Carrick United 0 - Waterford Crystal 0

Champions Carrick United dropped two points at home to Waterford Crystal in Tom Drohan Park on Sunday last. With Hibernians and Villa setting a blistering pace at the top this result more or less rules Carrick out of this seasons title race.

It took a total of 23 first half minutes before either keeper was called into a save as such when Crystal's Niall O'Toole took a pass from Jason Halloran 25-yards from goal but his right-footed effort along the ground was comfortably saved by Carrick United player manager keeper Adrian Walsh.

Crystal had another half chance six minutes later when Barry Ryan slipped the ball into the path of O'Toole on the edge of the penalty area but his left-footed effort was blocked out for a corner kick that

Heartbreak for Waterford United in Under 17 Semi-final

Waterford United  2  St Patrick's Athletic  3

Waterford United's brilliant Under 17 campaign came to an end at the RSC on Saturday last. All through the season they have been playing superbly but an experienced St Pat's team just about came out on top in this encounter. The visitors led three nil at one stage but the young Blues team fought back manfully and almost took the game into extratime. Many of the players will be available once again next season and the future is bright for this exciting team. 

St Patrick's Athletic got off to the perfect start when they took the lead inside five minutes when Ryan Burke swung over a corner kick from the right that found the head of Luke Nolan and after keeper Eoin Power made a fantastic save, Cian

Gunners efforts just fail

It was a crisp dry afternoon in Semple Stadium on Sunday last for the opening round of the Munster Club Senior Hurling Championship. Brought together for this encounter Waterford champions Ballygunner, and their Tipperary counterparts Thurles Sarsfields, who were both considered serious contenders for outright success at both Provincial and National level. Two really impressive outfits in their domestic competition and both loaded with intercounty stars. Referee Johnny Murphy of Limerick delayed the start a few minutes on advice as the swelling crowd outside the ground were making their way in.


Both teams began with a defensive set up which also saw Thurles full back Ronan Maher move out to the half line to help nullify the threat of Pauric Mahony and his pacy half forward line. Centre back Padraig Maher played a sweeping role behind brother and county colleague

Gunners Fire Winning Shot

On Sunday last at Walsh Park before an attendance of 3811 patrons defending champions Ballygunner retained the Waterford News and Star Cup against Passage on a 4-20 to 1-12 scoreline. The win helped the Knockboy outfit to three titles in a row, something they have now achieved on three occasions over the years and in so doing they have sent out a warning to all and sundry that this outfit under the stewardship of Denis Walsh as well capable of going a long way in the Munster and National competition. 

Over the course of the competition there is no doubt but from the outset it was Ballygunner who showed the best form, albeit, a little help from the lighting system in Fraher Field helped along the way. Remember they trailed Abbeyside by three points with a close in free to the latter midway through the
