VENUE: Glenmore


REF: Paschal Connolly




Glenmore 2:11 v 3:07 Blacks & Whites


The match started brightly for Glenmore taking early lead and really doing most of the hurling until half time.

A soft goal during the first half allowed B&W’s a lifeline and they finished first half the stronger team though Glenmore lead  2-7 to 1-2 at the break.

As the second half got underway it was clear B&WS got there Mojo back somewhat and where the stronger team in the half.

As for Glenmore the half forward line fell asunder with the exception of James Verekar and the scores dried up .

As legs tired B&WS eventually moved their the best player to centre forward and that resulted in goals but the final whistle came resulting in one point win for Glenmore.




VENUE: Paulstown


REF: Colin Tobin




Barrow Rangers 3:08 v 1:05 Naas


Barrow Rangers welcomed Naas to Paulstown on Friday evening for Round 7 of the U13 Roinn A Hurling League.


The game started well for Naas who certainly put the Barrow Rangers defenders under pressure right from the off, with Naas taking a well worked first point of the game.

Barrow Rangers first score came from a well taken point by Jack Bolger, but Naas kept applying the pressure and were eventually awarded with a deserved goal despite the best efforts

of the Barrow Rangers back line of Jayden Dermody, Daniel Lawlor and Dylan Kelly. Following a goal line scramble Tom Carpenter eventually managed to get the ball over the line to secure the first goal for Barrow Rangers, much to the relief of the Rangers management and supporters alike. It was nip and tuck for the rest of the first half, with some brilliant Barrow Rangers defending from James Prendergast, Andrew Donohue and Cathal Fox, but Naas showed true grit and kept plugging away and tagged on a further three points in the first half with Barrow Rangers keeping in touch with two well taken points from Jake Barcoe and a point from Jack McShane. The first half finished all square at 1-04 to 1-04.


Barrow Rangers certainly appeared to have more energy in the second half, and a well worked move involving Sam Medlar, Gary McHugh and Harry McEvoy eventually saw Jack McShane scoring a point from a tight angle followed by another well taken point by Jack Bolger. In fairness to Naas they kept battling hard and were rewarded with a pointed free, but were regularly thwarted by a Barrow Rangers solid full back and half back line and also by a number of great saves from Barrow Rangers goalkeeper Daniel McCullagh. 10 minutes into the second half a breaking ball in the full forward line resulted in Jack McShane rifling the ball into the back of the Naas goal to put Rangers up 2-06 to 1-05 for Naas. With 15 minutes to go Barrow Rangers were awarded a penalty, which was duly drilled to the back of the net by Jack Bolger. In the last 10 minutes Jake Barcoe tagged on a point for Barrow Rangers from a 65, followed by another well taken point from play from Jack McShane. In the end Barrow Rangers ran winners by 3-08 to 1-05 for Naas. Naas can certainly be proud of the display they put in with every player giving 100% and are certainly a good advertisement for Kildare hurling.


Barrow Rangers: Daniel McCullagh, Jayden Dermody, Daniel Lawlor, Dylan Kelly, James Prendergast, Andrew Donohue, Cathal Fox, Jake Barcoe (0-02 0-01f), Cillian Culleton, Sam Medlar, Jake Bolger (1P-02), Tom Carpenter (1-00), Harry McEvoy, Gary McHugh, Jack McShane (1-02, 0-01f)


Subs: Sam Murphy, Cilllian Tuite, Thomas Hayden, Rory Hayden, Sean Cuddihy, Matthew Mahon, Micheal Kane

VENUE: Cloneen

REF: Ollie O Neill


Cloneen 2:10 v 3:05 St Patricks

Friday evening saw Cloneen take on St. Patrick’s of Ballyragget in this u13 league match. St Patrick’s got off to a great start with a goal in the 1st minute from a ball that should have been cleared but with a strong sun it ended in the back of the net.
They had a point on the score board in the 4th minute while Cloneen had 3 wides registered before they got their first point. Cloneen had another point in the 14 th minute but the next 2 points was from St. Patrick’s in the 16th and the 20th minute.
While Cloneen had plenty of chances they just were not registering them on the score board and it was not until the 26min when they got a point from Jack Carroll. Next to score was St Patrick’s in the 29 min with another goal leaving the sides at half time St.Patricks 2-3
Cloneen 0-3.
Things turned around in the second half for Cloneen and within a minute of the start Jack Carroll had a goal scored. This was followed by a point in the 41 min from a free and a wide straight away but in the 44min a point from play. It was all Cloneen now at this stage and at 48mins had another point from a free and a 65 on 50 mins resulted in another point on the board.
After a great ball into the half forward line from Jack Kelly and on to Ryan Lawlor who found Jack Carroll who bagged a goal in the 52 min and shortly after had a point from play. St Patrick’s now came back into it and scored a goal of their own on the 54th min and a point shortly after. It was Cloneen who got the next 2 points in the 57th +58th min the first from play and the second from a free.
It left it with a very tight finish with St. Patrick’s awarded a free and scored a point from it, but the home side held out to finish with the win after a very tense ending to leave it
Cloneen 2-10
St. Patrick’s 3-5.

REF: Vivienne Holmes


Erins Own 1:09 v 1:11 Mount Leinster Rangers

The visitors were quick off the mark with a point from full forward Daragh Burke. However the hosts equalised within minutes. Both centre forwards swapped scores from dead balls before Erin’s Own burst into life with Josh Lawlor at the heart of it, scoring 1-3 from play. The goal came from an attack down the right, cutting in on his favoured left side he found the roof of the net. Erin’s Own midfielders Joseph and John Brennan both contributed points towards the end of the half. Mount Leinster battled back with two points to reduce the deficit. At half time the hosts led 1-8 to 6 points.
Aided by a breeze the visitors came out with great determination and found the net thanks to James Dalton which provided a shot of belief to the Carlow lads. The Comer attack was being well marshalled by the visitors and with10 minutes to go the sides were level at 1-9 each.
With both teams seeking a first league win the tackling was tenacious with every score and free was hard earned. Two frees saw the visitors edge ahead in the closing minutes. Erin’s Own would not go down without a fight and lay seige to the Mount Leinster goal who showed great resilience to repel their opponents and held put for a hard earned win after a titanic battle where both teams gave their all.

Erins Own: Robin Downey, Eli Comerford, Billy Byrne, Noah Murtagh, Cormac Lacey, Rory Bollard, Conor Moore, Joseph Brennan (0-1), John Brennan (0-3), Casey O’Shea, Josh Lawlor (1-5), Max Brennan, Charlie Comerford, Liam Lacey, Leon Phelan. Subs: Mikey Mayo for Charlie Comerford

U13 Roinn C Hurling League Rd 7

Date – 03-06-22 Venue – Dr. Tierney Park

Referee – John Walsh

Graignamanagh 2-6 Black & Whites 4-7


Graignamanagh played host to neighbours Black & Whites on a sunny Friday evening.

The visitors won the toss and elected to play with the aid of the not insignificant wind for the first half. The home side showed the more composure in the early stages of the game and in the first 20 minutes went ahead with 2 points from Padraic Hayden and a goal from Rory Cosgrove. The Skeough lads in the meantime, perhaps over reliant on the breeze, drove a significant number of shots wide. Centre forward Ross Phelan eventually opened the scoring for B&Ws with a pointed free and followed it up with a point from play. A ball dropped into the Graignamanagh square was knocked into the goal by a Graig back in an attempt to clear it. It was all Black & White scores for the remainder of the first half with a goal from wing forward Ned Og Kelly followed by two more points from Ross Phelan.

Half time score Graig 1-2 Black & Whites 2-4

The home team regrouped at half time and the second half saw 20 minutes of nip & tuck play where both sides battled it out. Hugo Tierney led the Graig rally from centre forward & scored 2 points as Tommy Dowling also contributed points to the scoreboard. Ross Phelan was able to keep the scoreboard ticking over with points from placed balls. A goal from Gary Kelly saw the gap between the 2 teams down to 1 goal but that was as good as it got for Graig as the Black&Whites immediately responded with a goal of their own with a goal from wing forward Callum Savage. The home team visibly tired in the games last 10 minutes as they failed to get ball through to the inside forward line with Skeough Centre back Noah Langrell clearing a lot of ball downfield. Ross Phelan added a goal to his points tally for the evening. The Skeough boys finished the game with a seven point lead and a deserved win in a hugely entertaining game.



Venue – Dr. Tierney Park

Graignamanagh 6-4 V  Naomh Eoin 1-9

Naomh Eoin from Myshal made the trip to Graiguenamagh on a fine Friday evening.

The visitors made a great start with an early goal from Eoin Redmond. Graignamanagh began to settle into the game and began to test the Carlow backs in their search for goals with Padraic Hayden scoring 3 goals in the first half and Aaron Foley also bagging a goal. Naomh Eoins Jack Kavanagh and Liam Murphy scored a brace of points each to keep the scoreboard ticking over. Goal of the game came towards the end of the first half when Sean Lavin gathered a ball on the edge of the square and rifled it into the top corner.

The 2nd was a closely matched encounter with Hugo Tierney getting a goal for Graignamanagh and Sam Antonessa scoring a lovely point. Jack Kavanagh led the scoring for Naomh Eoin with some nice points from placed balls and Daniel O’ Neill getting a nice point from play. The Carlow side finished the stronger of the two teams with Graigs Sean Foley in goal & Gavin Kelly at fullback both being called on to clear a lot of balls in the final quarter.

Both sides recorded 10 scores on the night with Graignamanagh’s greater goal tally giving them the victory in an enjoyable contest.



VENUE: Mullinavat

REF: Barry Hearne


Mullinavat 11:08 v 2:09 James Stephens

This game started out fairly even for first couple of minutes but became very one-sided quickly enough. A very strong Mullinavat performance in the first half where they scored a number of goals was more than enough to seal this victory. Despite the goal count the Village keeper actually made a number of excellent saves.
After the restart , and a few substitutions on the home team, we had a very different second half. This became a very good contest with the visitors putting up a very impressive 1:07 and showed great attitude and pride in themselves play until the ref blew the final whistle. At this stage Mullinavat had done more than enough to earn victory and are going very well in the group at the min.


Duggan Steel U13A Hurling League

O’Loughlin Gaels 1:08 v 1:08 Shamrocks Ballyhale

St. John’s Park

REF: Conor Everard

Friday 3rd June 2022

The O’Loughlin’s boys wore the green away jerseys for this one and it seemed to do the trick as they got off to a flyer with a quick goal from a high looping shot that went over everyone’s heads and into the back of the net. Another point was added soon after and then Shamrocks got into the game. The OLG lads put in an exhibition of blocking and hooking making the Shamrocks really earn every point as they scored 4 before half time and OLG added 1 more to leave the gap at a single point going in at half time.

Half Time Score OLG: 1-02(5) Shamrocks Ballyhale: 0-04 (4)

OLG again got off to a great start in the second half with 3 points within 4 minutes of the restart giving us a 4-point advantage. The Shamrocks weren’t wilting and reacted well fighting back into a 1-point lead. OLG finished strongly scoring an equaliser and were unlucky not to get the win. A very good performance by our lads and they are getting better every week of this league! COYBIG!!

VENUE: ST John’s Park


REF: Kieran Canavan




O Loughlin Gaels 4:15 v 2:04 Naas



Naas travelled to St. John’s park for this fixture and they started the match very well scoring an early goal. However, our boys were sparked into action and began to take control of the match. The desire to win could be seen with the high level of hooking and blocking and the hard work paid off as the OLG full forward line in particular did a lot of scoring damage.


Half Time Score OLG: 2-11(17) Naas: 1-0(3)


The second half started a lot tighter with Naas really fighting hard getting two unanswered points but the OLG defence stood strong and battled hard. OLG kept fighting and finished the 4ththquarter of the match very strongly and again the full forward line led from the front scoring 2-4 in the final 15 minutes.


Full Time Score OLG: 4-15(27) Naas: 2-04(10)


O’Loughlin Gaels Team

Dan O’Brien, Diarmuid Kealy, Kyrell Mtinsi, Lucas Duggan, Emmet Cooney, Andrew Holohan (0-1), JJ Cahill, Ben Fahey, Shane Comerford (0-1), Samuel Briers, Ronan Treacy, Adam Quigley (0-2F), Conor Manogue (0-5) Felix Fwamba (1-2), Ryan Farrell (3-4), Andrejs Kirilovs, Souley, Arthur Browne, Gavin Ryan, Cathal Bennett, Christopher Hayes, Kyle Butler

St Lachtains 3:04 v 4:05 Glenmore


What a contest! Both teams had their share of good play during first half . Glenmore led at the break by 2 pts in a half were St Lactains would feel they should have led.

Onto to the second and quick goals from St Lactains seen them take the lead . It looked like Glenmore were finished as their keeper pulled of four top saves to keep Glenmore out. As the game entered the final mins Glenmore eventually found the net and that goal sealed the win in what was a entertaining game . Credit to both teams in what was a thrilling encounter.

Conahy Shamrocks 4-16 V Rower-Inistioge 1-3

Conahy Shamrocks were too strong for a gallant Rower-Inistioge side in their recent clash in the Duggan Steel Roinn C League in Jenkinstown. Conahy’s greater strength and skill meant that they were well on top from an early stage.

The Conahy attack was in good scoring form from early on with scores from Ceirin Murphy, Rory Sherman, Neil Webster and Billy Rowe. Finn Sherman and Tadhg Hennessy were also dominant in the Conahy defence throughout the game. The visitors did have some great performances from the likes of goalkeeper Ryan Jackman, Eoin Stephenson, Sam Kelly, Oisin Walsh and Sean Byrne.

Conahy led by 2-9 to 1-1 at half time and the scoring trend continued in the same vein throughout the second half. To their credit, Rower-Inistioge never gave up trying, but Conahy were never going to be denied a deserved victory.
