Bruree Juvenile GAA
Indoor Hurling 2010: This year’s indoor hurling competition is finished in a welter of excitement at the Community Centre on Thursday night last. The large crowd were treated to some exciting games from Under 8, Under 10 and Under 12. A mark of the importance the players place on this competition is that the disappointment of defeat for was every bit as profound as the elation of victory. Once again, this year’s main sponsor was Ray Moloney, Bruree, who has been a faithful supporter of this event over the fourteen years since it started. The first final of the night was the Under 8 final between Cork (Matthew Howard, Sean Frawley, Sam Williams, Robert Lynch and Lorna Murphy) and Tipperary (William Sexton, Sean Daly, Fergus Carey, Laura Frawley and darragh Sexton). Cork came close to scoring on a number of occasions in the first half but were denied by a strong Tipp defence. However, they found the net three times in the second half to win out the competition. Matthew Howard scored one Cork goal while Sean Frawley had the other two. In third place in the Under 8 competition was Limerick (Frankie Barrington, Sebastian Fitzpatrick, John Sheehan, Katie Sexton and Aaron McCarthy) with Waterford (Peter Buckley, James O’Shea, David Sexton, Shannon McCarthy, Julia Wisniewski and Fionan O’Driscoll) in fourth place.
The Under 10 final was next up with Kerry (Jimmy Leslie Madigan, Grace Donworth, Fionnbarr Fitzpatrick and Chloe Kiely) and Clare (Emma Hogan, Cian O’Grady, Harry Mullane and Emma Howard) looking for the title. This was again a close game with Clare leading at half time by two goals to one. Both sides scored once in the second half to leave Clare the victors by three goals, all scored by Harry Mullane, to two. Cork (Jonathan Fitzpatrick, Laura Considine, Brian McCarthy and Kiara McCarthy) were third in this competition with Limerick (Julianne Barrington, Christopher Kelleher, Sam Cronnolly and Kayleigh Thompson) fourth and Tipperary (Eoghan O’Driscoll, Megan O’Grady, Cathal Barrington and Allanah Sheedy) in fifth.
The night had started with two very exciting semi-final in the Under 12 competition and the Under 12 final was the last game of the night. These left Cork (Aaron Fitzgerald, Tori O’Grady, Michael Sheedy and Edward Moore) and Kilkenny (Eoin O’Connell, Tommy Cronnolly, Laura Murphy and Abigail Adams) to contest the final. Cork led by five goals to three at the break but added four more in the second half to win on a nine three score line. Cork’s scorers were Aaron Fitzgerald (7), Michael Sheedy and Edward Moore (one each). Waterford (Eoin Carey, Rosarie Heffernan, Brian Sexton and Sean Quirke) were third, Limerick (Finbarr Kelleher, David O’Connell, Nella O’Regan and Owen Carey) fourth, Tipperary (Seamus Lyons, Ciaran Sexton, Rachel McCarthy and Robert Kelly) fifth, Kerry (Thomas O’Dwyer, Owen Carey, Lucy Donworth and Ciara Mullane) sixth, Clare (Chloe Kelly, Sean McCarthy, Ciara Daly and Jack Murphy) seventh and Galway (Oskar Wisniewski, Daire O’Driscoll, Michelle Brosnan and Gearoid McCarthy) eighth.
