Kildimo/Pallaskenry – Blackrock Match Prediction | 06-10-2019 08:45

Darren as our top goalscorer in last years Championship with 4; he has already beaten that in less games, at a higher grade this year as this was his 5th goal of the season (and our 16th goal in 7 Championship games, the highest in the division)! When we needed scores in the second half, we turned to our bench and they duly delivered; we managed to get 2-3 from our subs which is a very decent return. It wasnt long after when another substitute, Shaun Barry, put in a great tackle only a minute or so after coming on. It was a great run but as he came inside, the ball was flicked away but who was there, only goalpoacher supreme, Darren OConnell who finished the ground shot to the net from a tight angle. It was a huge moment in the game to really stall the Blackrock momentum and they wouldnt score for the rest of the game as they chased goals. Great persistence from Jack OKeeffe saw him keep the ball in over on the right touchline and he then set off on a run along the endline. Liam Griffin popped over a free after Shaun Barry had been fouled, before we finished the game off in style. Shaun put in the hit, turned the ball over, headed for goal and buried the ball to the back of the net, across the goalkeeper. They werent forthcoming with Kevin OConnell safe as a house at full-back. Peter Nash helped drive us on in that second half, getting on a huge amount of ball and when we won a sideline; up stepped Liam Griffin to cut the ball over the bar for our first score of the half. At this point, we found our second wind and drove on again; the half-back line really getting on top and Keel Moloney and Conor Staff linking up a couple of times down the left wing.

Well done to the management team of John Barry, Brian Butler, Liam Hayes, Brian Barry and Alan Fitzgerald for all their efforts and we still a Football Championship Semi-Final to look forward to! After a great win in the City/South Final, we were hoping to bring home a second Minor A title in three years but sadly, it was not to be. COUNTY MINOR HURLING SEMI-FINAL: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 0-16 Croagh/Kilfinny/Rathkeale 2-16. There was disappointment for our minor hurlers on Wedesday night, as they were knocked out of the Minor Hurling Championship by a well-organised and skilful Croagh/Kilfinny/Rathkeale, who had previously won the West Championship. Again, goals proved the difference in Rhebogue as our opponents managed to get two while preventing us from raising any green flags. It was a disappointing end to the season, but at least we did pick up some silverware along the way and showed there is some great talent in the parish and the future is certainly bright!


It was already a more free-flowing encounter than the week before and when Conor Staff used his pace and power to burst through the centre, he was able to pop the ball over the bar to give us a three-point lead. Tony McCarthy, in particular, was a tower of strength at full-back and Kevin OConnell was tested early on by the pace of the Blackrock corner-forward but grew dominant as the half progressed, winning a number of fifty-fifty balls. When Kyle broke past his opposite number in midfield, a bit of space opened up in front of him and he was able to fire over his second point of the evening. Blackrock were also creating chances, and moving lots of ball into their full-forward line but our full-back line were standing firm.

There was a trilling finish to the match and we now take a break from club hurling until the Limerick Senior hurlers are out of competition, hopefully end of August. The starting team were Barry OShaughnessy, Ian OBrien, Nigel Hosford, Niall Moloney, Marty Farrell, Brien Moloney, Liam Walsh, David Moloney, Dylan Dawson, Paudie Leahy, Kevin Palmer, Adrian Cooke, Sean Palmer, Gavin OLaughlin, Ruairi OShaughnessy, Subs, Shaun Murphy, Colm OKeeffe, Mikey Duggan, Kevin Hosford, Simon Hennessy, Ben Soundy, James ODoherty, David Healy, Paudie Lawlor, David OFlaherty, JoJo Brazill, Danny Moloney, Jordan Soundy, Callan Ensor, Colm ONeill. Well done to the Premier Intermediate team who drew with Kildimo Pallaskenry 1 16 each.

Well done to the Junior B hurlers on winning the first match of the year in the South league V Bruff, on a score line of 1 15 to 1 07. The starting team were Pat Heffernan, Mike Roche, Mike Heffernan, JJ Brazill, David Healy, Vinnie Herbert, Sheamie Ryan, Simon Hennessy, Dave OFlaherty, James ODoherty, Paudie Lawlor, Ben Soundy, Mikey Duggan, Richie Murphy, Declan Danaher, Subs Jordan Slattery, James McGrath, Callan Ensor, Danny Moloney, Brian OShaughnessy, Tommy Lee, Michael Brazill-Carroll, Alan Quane, Ken Douglas.

It looked like those two points would halt Blackrocks momentum but credit to them, they never panicked. Time was running out but they hit a point from play and then another free to bring them back to within two points as we entered injury time. We did have chances of our own to open up a two-point lead but were unfortunate to see one go wide, another to drop short and even a goal chance in a schemozzle around the edge of the square, but the ball just wouldnt go in! On the stroke of sixty minutes, they landed a free to leave just one point between the teams to give the spectators a dramatic finale. Another long-range free closed the gap again, and they dug deep, crowding out our half-forwards and midfield, and began to work the opportunities to claw the gap back.

We are two points better off than at the same stage last year, but have four tough games to come following the summer break. level the game. It was hugely disappointing for our lads to drop a point in that manner, but we remain ahead of the pack, level on five points with Bruff after three games. Wed like to wish the very best of luck to the considerable number of Kildimo/Pallaskenry players involved with various county setups and also to a number of injured players, that they will be back in fighting fitness by the time Championship resumes!

Last year, we were desperately disappointed to lose to eventual champions Garryspillane in a county semi-final. This is now our first ever appearance in a Premier Intermediate Hurling Final, and we hope to keep our good records in finals going! Two years ago, in our first ever appearance in an Intermediate Hurling Final, we defeated Glenroe by 10 points and won promotion to the Premier Intermediate grade. But the hurt and disappointment of that defeat has driven the team on this year; the team have learned from that defeat and grown stronger as a result!

Hope to see our supporters there to help the lads get to a County Final! This semi-final is due to take place on Tuesday, October 9 in Mick Neville Park against Fr. Caseys at 8pm. Well done to all involved, to the management team of Noel McCarthy, Killian OLeary and Sean Cuddihy for leading us to a semi-final! We are now in a semi-final in both codes, something only two other sides in the county can claim and is a great achievement, with largely a very similar panel!

We did what we had to do in terms of securing a large enough margin victory to be the team with the highest score difference but results elsewhere saw us slip to second in the table as it came down to head-to-head. But the hard work has been done, the semi-final was the true aim and that has been achieved. In the final game of the group stage of the Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship, we rattled in four goals against Blackrock and secured a well-deserved 12-point victory! It was nice to finish the group stage off with a victory to leave us full of confidence heading into the semi-final and it was a good performance, particularly a storming first half. PREMIER INTERMEDIATE HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 4-16 Blackrock 0-16.
