Championship win for Senior Footballers

The County Senior Football Championship recommenced at the weekend some 13 weeks since Round 2.IMG_1309

Having seen off Dromcollogher Broadford in the last round the team were keen to build on the victory and gather some momentum going in to the vital second half of the season,  Location for our Round 3 clash with 2014 Champions Ballylanders was Bruff on Saturday evening.

Following a minute silence for the late Gerry Molyneaux it was decided to play with the wind in the first half.  Straight from the throw in it was clear the lads were on their game,

Our midfield duo of Will O Donoghue and Eoghan Kehilly were excellent throughout the hour supplying great possession to the forwards, The forwards were bright with David Dempsey and Evan Condon showing well while Kieran Daly and Eoin Hogan showing great ball carrying abilities. In defence goalkeeper Luke Moylan delivered some very good kick outs with one in particular leading to a great first half point by Kieran Daly.

Cian Coady at full back was excellent and time and time again snuffed out the danger ably assisted by Evan O Brien and Mark Buckley. First half scores from Evan O Brien, Will O Donoghue(2), Kieran Daly, Peter Casey and a goal from David Dempsey sent us in 6 points to the good at half time 1-6 to 0-3.
Playing into the wind in the second half the lads continued their hard work and further points from Eoin Hogan (2)and David and Alan Dempsey a point each sealed the victory 1-10 to 0-5.
A very good all round team performance and one which sees us top of what is a very tight group.
With 2 rounds remaining v St Kierans and St Patricks it is all to play for
Team: Luke Moylan, Evan O Brien, Cian Coady, Mark Buckley, Gordon Brown, Kevin Nolan, Padraic Kennedy, William O Donoghue, Eoghan Kehilly, EOin Hogan, ALan Dempsey, Kieran Daly, Evan Condon, David Dempsey, Peter Casey, Subs: Kevin Downes, Diarmuid Ryan, Dean McLoughlin

Under 11 hurlers going well


Na Piarsaigh U11’s were recently invited to bring three 11 a side teams to the Joe Delaney Tournament in Ballincollig, Co Cork. With a lot of support from Chris and Johns U10’s and a very influential crew from NAP Camogie – not to mention great support from parents and mentors – the bus headed off early on Saturday 18th June for a great days hurling.

Against the formidable large contingent from James Stephens( Kilkenny), Ballyboden St Endas from Dublin (who have 80 U11’s!), and a sizeable local squad from Ballincollig, NAP acquitted themselves admirably and left with heads held high and much praise from the hosts.

Limited space on the bus meant other supporters, including the Fahys and Halligans drove south and their encouragement was much appreciated
