Replying To supersub15:  "Sorry for the interruption.
I was rummaging through an auld biscuit tin looking for a particular gaelic football programme when I stumbled across the 1995 A.I.B leinster club semi final double header between
An Tochar v Dunderry and Ballyboden St. Endas v Eire Og.

Those two semi finals couldn't have been more evenly matched,,
An Tochar 1 - 13 Dunderry 1 - 12
Ballybiden St Endas 2 - 06 Eire Og 1 - 10.

The first game in the leinster final finished in a draw, the replay Eire Og won by a point.
Because the An Tochar lineout and subs looks interesting, here it is - - -
(1) Liam Cullen.

(2) Nicholas Nolan. (3) Sean Nolan. (4) Alan Jenkinson (5) Pat Murphy. (6) Philip McGillycuddy (7) Joe Price.

(8) Murt Davis (9) Seamus Nolan.

(10) Ken Power. (11) D. McGilllycuddy (12) Brendan Brady. . (13) Seamus Cullen. (14) Fergal Mulligan. (15) Enda McGillycuddy.

Mentor. D. McGillycuddy. (Manager.)

The subs were made up of, Paul Brady, Noel Brady, David Brady, Gary Mc Gillycuddy, Declan Wolohan, Noel Wolohan, Eddie Davis, Clive Davis. Also Colm Molloy and Brian Power.

The price of the Programme was a whopping 40p. Nov. 19th 1995.

I thought it was worth posting.

Deadly ...the McGillacuddys were serious players. So were the Davis boys although it was a small bit before their time.. I see them in the subs.
Right few Bradys there as well. Brings back memories of football in the 90s and some serious teams around even though Baltinglass and then Rathnew dominated. Dunlavin Shillelagh Hollywood Bray An Tochar and maybe Blessington?? all took turns in senior county finals around then

I know it's mostly nostalgia now. But if we remember those days of the 80s and 90s, we had a senior inter county team of some quality. Those memorable matches with Kildare and Meath. I suppose the lesson here is Strong Clubs = Strong inter county teams.

That was a very strong An Tochar team at the time. I reckon that had that Rathnew eight in a row team not came on the scene in 96 then An Tochar may have gone on and added another few championship in the late 90s.

I hadn't heard that. I've known Pat most of my life. I always found him to be a gentleman. Rest in Peace.

Sad to hear about Pat.. The amount of games that man was at was unreal, you'd never know where you'd see him.

Great news last night about Carnew emetts a great achievment for the club and county. Fair play also to the county board who put a lot in to supporting clubs entering this year ecpeasially.

Will there still be members of that group standing on the bank in Aughrim next year shouting the most abhorrent abuse at match officials? I was close enough this year to hear what they were shouting at the referee and they should be ashamed of themselves for the abuse they were shouting.

In my opinion that was a significant result for the Rocks to win the U15 hurling. Congrats to them. It would be great to think that Gaelic Games in general and not just football were on the rise in Arklow. I don't know the makeup of this team and would like to think that a town the size of Arklow and its hinterland could field a team from the area. If memory serves they won a minor a few years ago but were joined up with Avondale. Not much has evolved from that particular venture - as yet anyway. Still, it's early days. They would still be only around 21.

Indeed , I was also encouraged to see this. I am hoping there is a hurling renaissance of sorts underway in Arklow , similar to what AGB have been doing for football in the town over the past few years. The rocks were a real force of Wicklow hurling in the 70s & 80s and it would be great for Wicklow Hurling to get to a point where we have senior teams operating out of all the bigger towns in the County - Arklow, Wicklow, Greystones & Bray.

Totally agree. Bray have been a puzzle for years regarding football. Loads of underage strong teams but after minor they seem to disappear. Fair play to Greystones and Pats and now Arklow seem to be getting their act together, but Bray seem to struggle.

Credit to Bray Emmetts who beat Naomh Barrog yesterday and are now in a Leinster final, best of luck in the final against Trim.

Congrats to Bray Emmets and best of luck in the Leinster Final. We need to show our new sponsors that there is talent in the county. This is a perfect way to do it.

Well done to Bray Emmets for making it to the Leinster final and also, it took a replay for Bray to win the county final against Glenealy. This proves that there is talented hurlers in the county if proper structures are implemented and harnessed. I've criticised Bray Emmets in relation to football but it may be a case that Bray are prioritising hurling ahead of football. Hopefully they can win the Leinster final and have a good crack at the All Ireland. Just look at Naas, won the intermediate last year and built on it this year at senior level. They put up a decent display against Ballyhale yesterday.
