Ronan Cup Win for Hurlers

by Cu Chulainns on April 6, 2013

Result:
Cúchulainns 2-12
Michael Cusacks 1-10

Cúchulainns recorded their second win in a row in the Ronan Cup today (Saturday 6th April) in Goodmeyes, giving us the perfect start to the season. One more win in the round robin section of the Ronan Cup should guarantee qualification to the semi-finals of this competition.

On a side note, it was also a win for Michael Murphy over Michael Cusacks by 2-11 to 1-10. Aido helped out with a point. No prizes for guessing who gets man of the match.

Ronan Cup Cuchulainns v Granuaile 28-04-2012

by Cu Chulainns on April 29, 2012

Result: Cuchulainns 1-9(1-10?)   1-10(1-9?) Granuaile

Or was it 1-10 to 1-10 ref? Some confusion over the final scoreline leads us to believe that Cuchulainns should have been given at least a draw because some lads had it 1-10 to 1-9 to Cuchulainns.

In any case, whatever the score, it was a fine game of hurling in very tough conditions where both teams gave their all. Granuaile got off to the better start putting over 4 points without reply, a couple from frees. But then Cuchulainns found our stride and began pegging them back with some good points from Tom Brennan, Joe Cashman, and Jon Delahunty. By half time there was little to choose between the teams.

However, some disagreements over the scoreline at halftime between the teams, umpires, and ref caused some confusion. In the end, it was agreed by all parties that the score at half-time go down as 0-8 to 0-6 to Granuaile (although we are certain it should have been 0-7 to 0-6). The ref tried to say it was 0-8 to 0-5 but we reckon he marked one of our points as a point to them, so the correct score should have been 0-7 to 0-6 at half-time.

In the second half, Cuchulainns continued to push forward and clawed our way back into the game with some good points from play, as well as another one or two from frees by Tom Brennan, and Cuchulainns led by a point half way through the second half until Granuaile pulled it back level again. Then the next score was a goal for Granuaile, which was well stopped initially by sub keeper, Cathal Murtagh, but the ball rebounded kindly for Granuaile who stuck it in the net.

But Cuchulainns kept fighting all the way and would be rewarded with a goal of our own from the stick of Damian Holohan with 5 mins remaining to bring the scores back level (or so we thought). In the end, the ref put the score down as a 1 point win for Granuaile and that’s that I guess. Nonetheless, whatever the score, it was a hard fought game and both teams gave a good account of themselves, and no doubt will have another fierce battle when the championship comes along later in the summer.

Man of the Match: Jon Delahunty

Team: Eddie Naughton, John Diviney, Kieran Graham, Mike O’ Malley, John Brady, Tom Brennan, Conn Magabhann, Joe Cashman, Kevin Cott, Conor O’ Keefee, Jon Delahunty, Christy O’Shea, Damian Holohan, John Sheahan, Colm Farrell; Subs: Cathal Murtagh
