Intermediate Football Championship St Rynaghs 2-8; Walsh Island 0-15

Rynaghs failed by a single point to beat Walsh Island in the third round of the IFC. This now means that all hopes of reaching the knock out stages of the C’ship are gone. 

For various reasons Rynaghs fielded an under strength team with four first choice players failing to turn up for this game. Three of those players were resting themselves for a soccer match to be played the following day and the other player was attending a pop concert in Dublin.

Back to the game. Rynaghs got off to a perfect start with a goal from Ray Bell and soon after a Tom Wynne goal after 10 minutes. Rynaghs led at half time by 2-4 to 0-6.

On the re-start Rynaghs added two more points to extend their lead to six points, but consistent fouling by a couple of Rynaghs players allowed Walsh Island back into the game thanks to their accurate free taker who accounted for nine of his sides total. Rynaghs had their best players in Des O’Connor, John Daly, Martin Hanamy, Paudie Mulhare, Ray Bell and Tom Wynne.

Team and scorers : Paul Lally, Des O’Connor, John Daly, John Egan, Declan Rosney, Martin Hanamy, John Kerin, Mick Quigley(0-1), David Lally, Fergal Doyle, Paudie Mulhare (0-3), Tony McIntyre, Ray Bell (1-3) Seamus Devery (0-1), Tom Wynne (1-0)

The club wish to thanks those players who played on the day to ensure that this fixture was fulfilled.

Thanks to Brendan Grogan for giving us this match report from the Midland Tribune from sometime in 199?

Tullamore Collapse In Second Half

In the minor hurling semi-final,  the Tullamore side completely collapsed in the second half after holding St. Rynagh’s very well in the first half when the winners held only a point lead 3-0 to 2-2.  Tullamore didn’t raise the flag in the second half, and St. Rynagh’s ran out easy winners – 9-3 to 2-2 at full time.  The St. Rynagh’s marksmen were unmerciful in their scoring and led by Matt Moylan, they sniped off scores with such rapidity that there were little time for open play.  Some very fine hurling displayed by Ray Flannery and Brian Lyons also.

The Teams:
St. Rynagh’s – M. Lyons, P. Kane, J. Boylan, L. Wood, G. McDermott, F. Kenny, B. Lyons, T. Healy, C. Kerin, G. Odlum, H. Gallagher, F. Kenny, L. Kerin, M. Moylan, R. Flannery
Tullamore – O. Thornton, J. Hensey, E. McCabe, J. Daly, N. Lynam, M. Doyle,  J. Hughes, L. Delaney, N. Kinnarney, N. Egan, V. Smith, M. Heffernan, J. Owens, L. Duffy, B. Buggy
Referee: Mr. M. Spain (Birr)
