Congratulations to Tipperary teams that gave a super performance among the cream of the crop at the Aldi Community Games Munster finals in University of Limerick on Saturday, winning gold in six events, silver in two and receiving certificates of participation in eight events.
Mary Walsh, St Peter & Paul's Area, Clonmel had her three Skittles teams in tip top form winning gold in U-12 and U-16 events but the U-14 team found their opponents from Clare a bit too strong.
Fethard & Killusty U-14 girls football team were amazing. They had a runaway victory over KGK-Knockanore, Glendine Kilwatermoy, Waterford in their semi final while a tough battle was fought between Cork and Kerry in the other semi final with Cork emerging winners to face Tipperary in the final. But the Tipp girls took no chances, they defended well in the first quarter, availed of all opportunites that came their way and showed they were a force to be reckoned with at half time. They kept up the pressure in both phases of the second half with each girl playing their part to ensure victory. Their co-ordination, speed and ability to read the game proved their dedication to training was worthwhile. Final score was Tipperary 4-8. Cork 2-5. These girls are a credit to their mentors Micheal (Hammer) Spillane, his wife Sandra and Ed Collum whose commitment to the sport is endless.
Nenagh U-11 Hurling team were very impressive in both of their games. Facing opposition as hot as the sun they disposed of Monaleen, Limerick in the semi final and then opposed Kenmare, Co Kerry in the final but these young boys were focused on victory and were not going to be denied gold medals. They treated their supporters to an excellent display of hurling to the delight of their manager Kevin Tucker. They certainly seem to have a favourite's chance at National finals. Munster champions are: Aodhan Tucker, Daniel Connolly, Oisin Gleeson, Shane Gleeson, Conor Hodgins, Valters Janitens, Emmet Jones, Michael Kennedy, Michael MacLoone, Stephen McNamara, Billy O'Brien, Senan O'Farrell, Daniel Quinn, Michael Ryan, and Eanna Tucker.
Roscrea U-12 Girls 7 a side Soccer team showed great skill and stamina beating Clare in the semi final and going on to a 3-0 victory over Cork in the final. Team members are Ceola Bergin, Ella Carey, Amy Carson Hogan, Aine Dooley, Sheoladh Dynan, Kayleigh Guidera, Laura Hogan, Alicia Murphy, Farah Murphy, Niamh O'Brien.
Templemore U-14 boys Spikeball team were over the moon to win gold medals on their first attempt in this event. Team members were Cian Sheedy Captain, Ned Walsh, Michael Cahill, Ned Delaney, Cormac Foy, Josh Quinlan. The boys commenced with a great win over Limerick in the semi final and became Munster champions with a victory over Kerry in the final. Well done boys.
Newport U-10 mixed football team defeated Limerick in the preliminary game, defeated Cork in the semi final but were unlucky losers in their final v Ballynacally/Lissycasey in the final. These boys played brilliant and looked to be in control of the game at all times but luck just ran out of them when it mattered and they had to be content with Silver medals which was a fine achievement.
Roscrea U-15 Girls Soccer team also won Silver medals after an exciting final v Ballingarry, Co Limerick Team consisted of: Leah Ryan, Khya Lynch, Jessica Kelly, Kelsey Wing, Leanne Doherty, Mollie Dooley, Ellie Feehan, Samantha O'Toole, Stephanie O'Toole, Lucy Lee and Aoife Dillon.
