2014 Hurling Championships

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Group A
Oylegate v Rathgarogue Cushinstown: I wouldn't have expected Oylegate to win the first game and I wouldn't have expected Rarhgarogue Cushinstown to lose either. I'd say Oylegate win this one.
Ballygarrett v Oulart The Ballagh: Oulart were very poor against Shamrocks. Ballygarrett by 5.
Bunclody v Shamrocks: it's possible that Bunclody could be without a win after two rounds. If Shamrocks win this one, they will out themselves forward as serious title contenders.

Group B
Naomh Eanna v Askamore: one of the ties of the round. Naomh Eanna shocked by Blackwater last week need to bounce back but they couldn't have a tougher game than an Askamore team on a high scoring 2-8 in about 10 minutes. I think Askamore will win by 4 to 5 points.
Blackwater v Geraldine O'Hanrahans: Blackwater with an impressive win last week. I expect Geraldine O'Hanrahans to put up a better showing and the game to be closer. Blackwater still should have enough.
Craanford v Duffry: Huge disappointing game from Duffry last week after a solid league campaign. Craanford impressive but I think Duffry will put in a better showing. Craanford but only by 3 points or 4.

was at annes adamstown match, easy 12 point win for annes. on this showing adamstown certainties for relegation, only managed 6 points and with oulart , martins and rathnure to come it wont get any easier. annes struck at least 20 wides , should have beaten adamstown out the gate. david fogarty , paraic o keeffe and aidan rochford best for annes.

Was at St Annes v Adamstown & Cloughbawn v Harriers on Sat evening. First game was so one sided it was terrible. The Annes had served it up to Oulart the week before & drove on from there against a very very poor Adamstown side. Adamstown only scored 6 points in an hour with only 1 of them from play and without the likes of PJ Carroll (Australia), Michael Curtis (USA), Vinny Dohney, Shane White, Dave Lawlor, Eoin Cashin (all injured) they do look like favourites for relegation this year. But for the fact that James Breen had a good game at No 6 & St Annes huge wides tally the final scoreline could have been even greater. St Annes were in control in all positions with Rochford, D O'Keefee, Johnny Fogarty, Red Barry & Liam Og McGovern all very impressive. They have good ball winners & with a little bit of work on their finishing they could be "wild card" contenders this year.

Only saw the 1st half of the second game and thought from the outset that The Harriers would be able to overcome Cloughbawn but 3 goals conceded inside 20 minutes proved to be their down fall. A combination of weak defending & poor goal keeping played a hand in 2 out of 3 (although a well struck "21" accounted for the 3rd). Cloughbawn actually only managed to score 6 points for the entire game and this should not be enough to win any senior hurling game i.e. 9 scores. The Harriers have the players on paper to do much better so I am not sure where the problem lies. I'm sure the likes of Chin, Kehoe, Mulligan, Berry, Clarke, Gore, Lambert can do much better but they will need to start delivering results soon to have any chance of progressing. Their young corner forward John Bridges looked lively and also could be one for the future.

God help any Wexford selectors if this is what is available for selection for inter county. Standard was poor overall. Will have to go see some of the "better" teams in the next round as it might be more entertaining.

Good win for the Shamrocks over Bunclody yesterday (1-9 to 0-7) in bad conditions.

All square at 0-5 a piece at half time. Bunclody all over the Shamrocks for the first 10 mins of the second half, but put wide after wide after wide. Bunclody should have been out of sight, but after seeing out the storm, Shamrocks struck a goal and never looked back from there.

Think Bunclody only scored 2 points from play and looked pretty poor bar one or two.

Intermediate is wide open this year with any club from Oylegate, Shamrocks, HWH Bunclody, Craanford, Askamore, Blackwater and Ballygarrett. With senior looking competitive this year aswell, it could be one of the best championships for the last few years.
