Club training duathlon

With the second race in the Kilkenny Duathlon Series cancelled due to the inclement weather there was a great turn out for the club training duathlon on the Butlerstown course. It was great to see so many new members as well as the more seasoned club members take part. Unfortunately many of the more 'experienced' members seemed to forget one of the cardinal rules and obviously weren't paying attention to the race briefing with a whole bunch of them taking the wrong route. Technically a whole raft of disqualifications should be dished out but as it was only a practice race, we'll let the DQs slide this time. First male home was Emmet 'Faris keks' Kelly. First female home was newcomer Johann Falconer. Well done to all who took part and those who helped to marshal/time. Full results

Its been a busy couple of weeks on the domestic cycling competitive calendar. In recent weeks we have sent team all over the country. A couple of weeks ago we sent a full team to RAS Lumini in Co. Limerick where we welcomed back Brian O'Keeffe from injury and Mark Nugent placed a very hard fought 4th place in the Elite A1 race. Star of the show however was super veteran, Eamonn Ryan who scored 2nd overall in the over 50's race. Its nice to see the club being competitive at all levels from junior through Elite to Veteran.

On St Patricks day, with several of our riders out due to illness or injury we sent a mostly rookie squad to Carrick On Suir for the famous and prestigious Carrick Cup. Making their competitive debut for the club were newcomers Niall

Football's coming home to Kilcohan

Waterford United played their last game in their spiritual home of Kilcohan Park in season 1992-93 before they set up base in the current home, the RSC. Kilcohan Park holds many fond memories for long time followers of the Blues and indeed supporters who have long since left us. The original club, Waterford F.C played their first ever game in Kilcohan Park in 1930 and during the intervening period prior to the move to the Kilbarry venue (Waterford United were formed in 1982) some glorious moments of joy were recorded in their original home ground and some incredibly talented players graced the playing surface of Kilcohan. The "Golden Years" between 1965-66 to 1972-73 were of course played at the famous greyhound stadium.

When the Blues left Kilcohan Park back in 1993 it was believed that football would

Swift Reaction Needed After RSC Nightmare

Waterford United will be looking to quickly bounce back after their 4-0 mauling at the hands of Mervue United at the RSC on Saturday, the second such in three games against the Galwaymen at home. The Blues travel to Ferrycarrig Park this Friday night needing an immediate reaction against Wexford Youths, a win which can then put the Mervue game in the 'bad night at the office' category, and enable the side to get back on track with their promotion challenge. Both management and players are reportedly devastated at the inexplicably poor performance on the night, and are determined to begin to repair the damage with a win over a Wexford side who themselves overcame defeats in their first two matches to win away at Salthill at the weekend. The game kicks off on Good

Waterford hurlers provide thrilling finish

Waterford Senior hurlers collected the necessary two Allianz National league points in Walsh Park in what was surely one of the sweetest wins of recent years. The Deise management under the guidance of Michael Ryan have been rebuilding the team this year following the departure of established stars like John Mullane, Eoin McGrath and Eoin Kelly giving the young brigade the opportunity of laying claim to a regular starting place. A win over Clare in the opening round was followed by a draw with Cork and was a positive start to the league campaign. A visit to Nowlan Park proved fruitless as All-Ireland champions Kilkenny came out five points better on the scoreboard. Flattering to the hosts as Waterford perhaps, were victims of their own downfall having conceded two goals of the soft variety. Things were

Paul O'Brien disappointed

LONGFORD TOWN 2 - 1 waterfOrd united Across the Back by Booter

IT was defeat on the road for Waterford United as they suffered their first defeat of the season against table toppers Longford Town at the City Calling Stadium on Saturday night last as the home side claimed victory by two goals to one.

After getting the better of Tony Cousins side in their league playoff game last season, the Blues just couldn't build on their opening night point against Finn Harps in this fixture as goals from Michael Isichei (36 mins) and David O'Sullivan (45+1) cancelled out Paudie Quinn's goal.Quinn gave the visitors the lead after only 13 minutes but the home side came from behind to win all three points, however it was an unjust result in the eyes of manager Paul O'Brien as his side "smashed them

Waterford United v Cobh Ramblers at the RSC Monday, March 19, 2013 (KO 7.45pm) EA Sports Cup Round One.

Blues Again Set To Welcome Old Foes

Having fallen foul of the sudden blizzard conditions on Suirside last week, Waterford United's first competitive tie against Cobh Ramblers in over five years is set for this Tuesday night at the RSC (KO 7.45pm).

The sides last met in the Munster Senior Cup in February 2008, with Cobh winning out 8-7 in a marathon penalty shoot-out, and it's been a further year since their last meeting in this competition, which threw the teams together with regularity over the '90s and noughties, with Ramblers again taking the tie by the odd goal in three in May of 2007.

In fact, though the surprisingly short League head-to-head record (the teams missed each other 15 of Cobh's 24 seasons between

    If you build it, they will comeAnytime there is a radical reimagining of a part of Waterford's city streetscape there seems to be a lot of people who will come out against it just for the sake of it without really giving it a chance. It has happened with nearly all of the city centre areas that have undergone pedestrianisation and now it looks like it is going to happen to the new Apple Market area that has just undergone a huge transformation.Taking a walk around the new Apple Market is a complete …
