Kilruane MacDonaghs Notes May-10-2022
Commiserations to Craig Morgan, Cian Darcy, John Casey and the Tipperary senior team on the loss to Limerick. Hard luck to Páidí Williams and the Tipperary U20 team that lost to Limerick in the Munster Final.
In the last round of the League game we play Borris-Ileigh in MacDonagh Park on this Sunday, 15th May. Time has still to be confirmed. Victory is essential to secure a semi-final spot. In the Dan Breen Cup we have been drawn in Group 1 with Clonoulty Rossmore, Nenagh Éire Óg and Moycarkey Borris. The first round is scheduled for the weekend of 23rd/24th July. The quarter-final of the North championship against Kiladangan is pencilled in for the weekend of 25th/26th June.
We lost 1-22 to 1-10 against Kiladangan in fifth round of the League in Puckane. After 22 minutes the home side, aided by the breeze, led by 0-6 to 0-3. However, they finished the half strongly to take a 0-13 to 0-6 lead into the dressing room at the interval. A goal by Cormac Mannion in the 41st minute left MacDonaghs just five points adrift. This was as good as it got. A Kiladangan goal in the 50th minute saw them gain a firm grip of the game and they ran out comfortable winners.
Team: Kevin Naughnane, Conor Austin, Eanna Hogan, Paul Dwyer, Oisín O’Meara, Tomás Hogan, David O’Sullivan, Pat Conway (0-1), Rory Grace, Eoin Carroll (0-5, 0-4 frees), Cormac Mannion (1-1), Niall Shinners (0-2 frees), Martin Grace (0-1), Kevin Ryan, Eoin England. Subs: Caoilainn Conroy, Ross Austin, David Mooney.
