Senior Hurling League : We open our campaign against Ballysaggart this Sunday at 11.30am in Ballysaggart.

Where's the Logic? Championship weekend, a weekend of great excitement for both player and supporter but how about this for a predicament ! The county board in their deranged wisdom have decided to play junior hurling and senior hurling championship on the same day. Now look at the logistics of this. Clubs would need two sets of jerseys for the same day. They expect supporters to go to two games in different venues. Now not all clubs have a volume of players, so there is in all likelihood at least some of the junior players being close to starting senior who will have to tog out for two games and could if required be involved in both. Where is player welfare here ?  You also have management of both, hurley and water carriers and medical officers having to attend both and not having full concentration on their sole focus which should be one game. We have a paid secretary in this county and  the broader thinking should be on the club player rather  than the county man. They too added the cost of buying bibs for the sideline now which must be numbered. These were handed out to teams on previous occasions so what has happened to these?

Pairc Eamon De Paor : U14 football Cois Bhride v Kilrossanty 11.30 am Sunday .  Ned Power Tournament is on again this Friday in the astro turf on Friday at 6.30pm.

Deise Draw : The tickets will be handed out to promoters over the next week or so. A six month draw with a chance to win €12,500 each month as well as other prizes. It's €15 a month or €90 for the year. A vital fundraiser for the club with €10.50 retained by the club and remainder going to the running of the Waterford county teams. We had a jackpot winner last year in Maura Bermingham . 

Tallow GAA Lotto Supported by Kearney's Restaurant.

2/3/2020 Jackpot €12,200 No Winner Numbers: 1,11,15,26. 

Consolation Prizes: Melissa Murphy, Mike Condon, Claire Murphy, Christina McCarthy. 

Promoter: Daybreak 

Next Draw : 9/3/2020  Lukies 9pm Jackpot : €12,600.

Johnny Geary Interview Part 2:
PRO: The Tallow team of that time was made up of four  prominent underage age groups. Late sixties ,early seventies, mid seventies and your group the early eighties. They gelled together well?
J.G.: Its debatable if they gelled  WELL together but they gelled OK . 4 players came from the 83 u 21 winning side on to the senior the following year, Jim O Donoghue , Philly Curley , Pat Murphy and myself . Philly always told the older lads on the team that we gave them legs and the bit of speed they were lacking ( something they never really agreed with us on ) but we did go on to win 2 seniors in 84 and 85 so I presume what Philly said held a lot of truth. 

PRO:You played on the two in a row team of 84 and 85. Was it difficult to break on to that team?
J.G.: Yes it was difficult Ok . They had a lot of very good hurlers at that time , all who would have played county at under-age and a number who were on the county senior panel . You had the likes of Liam O'Brien , John McDonnell, the Curley  and  Ryan brothers, Pat Daly, Mick Beecher, Timmy Sheehan all good players so it was wasn’t easy to break on to the team and it was very competitive for places .  

PRO: A lot of Tallow men gained intercounty experience for Waterford at this time, including yourself. What do you remember of that ? 
 J.G.:yes I think all of our senior team at that time would have played intercounty at some level at under age . I remember playing U -21 against Cork in 82 and we had  6 from Tallow on the team including Con Ryan, Mick Beecher , John Fitzgerald , Philly Curley, Pat Murphy and myself .  We would have had Liam O Brien, Eddie Curley , Connie Curley , Mick Beecher , Timmy Sheehan , Pat Daly , Pat Murphy , Kieran Ryan , Philly Curley who all played Co senior at some stage . My Intercounty career was pretty short – the highlight being a defeat by Roscommon in Roscommon in a League game  –I think it made Front Page news on The Roscommon Herald the following week .. 

PRO: The centenary final, the new jerseys and the rain....  Losing to Ballyduff by eight points at half time!  Continue...
J.G.: In the Centenary Final in 84 we played Portlaw and had a new set of Centenary Jerseys for the occasion. . It was played in Fraher Field . The forecast was for heavy showers on the day so when we togged out we went out for our warm up while it was still dry. When we completed the warm up and were back in the comfort of the dressing room, there was a cloud burst and Portlaw had just gone for  pre-game warm-up and they got absolutely drenched .We had 2-3 on the scoreboard in the first 8 minutes. I always thought that heavy rain had a huge bearing on the final result.. The following year we played near neighbours Ballyduff in an All Western final in Fraher Field. Ballyduff totally outplayed us in the first half leading by 8 points at half-time . A few switches at half-time and an early goal in the second half brought us back into the game and we went on  to snatch victory at the end. There was a huge rivalry with Ballyduff in the 80 s where they won 2 county titles and we won 3 in the decade but also huge respect that I think is still there to this day. 

PRO: The team was at the peak of it's powers in 85 I would think. You played Roanmore in a county semi final, Tallow scored 4-16 with 4-14 coming from play. The ultimate performance?
J.G.: Yes that performance was probably the best from that team and there was nothing in it in the end. Roanmore were the emerging force in hurling in Waterford going on to win 2 co titles in the late  80's.  

PRO: The eighties was a bleak period for the country. Mass emigration and unemployment! You and fellow Tallow hurlers spent times in the states..
J.G.: Yes Unfortunately there was very little work in Ireland in the late eighties so it meant a lot of young men and women had to emigrate to find work. Through the connection with Micky Pendergast in New York it was the choice of most Tallow people to head there and The UK . Micky was a great Ambassador for Tallow and Waterford in New York and did a huge amount of work for emigrants in setting them up in accommodation and jobs on arrival. At one stage there were 18 people from Tallow in the one Apartment Block which was christened: “ The Tallow Towers ". A lot of us played for Waterford in Gaelic Park in those times.  

PRO: Kilruane MacDonaghs in Tallow! Full House!. Munster club championship in our home venue! Lost by a point! They won the All Ireland..... 
J.G.: I think it was one of the highlights of Tallow GAA over the years –playing in front of 3000 people in a Munster Club Championship at our home venue . It was a cracker of a game that could have gone either way , unfortunately we were beaten by a point by the eventual All Ireland Club Champions 

PRO: How much of an affect did that loss have on the 86 season? 
J.G.:  I don’t think it really affected the following year . We were going for 3 in a row and were probably a bit complacement and didn’t prepare properly for the earlier rounds. There was a new Championship format that year which was now run on a league basis.We lost a few of the earlier rounds and all of a sudden we were in a situation where we couldn’t qualify for the next stage so we were out of the Championship and in a relegation battle which we lost and were relegated to Intermediate .  

PRO:We beat Fourmilewater in the 87 western intermediate final. The cup was named after Raymond O'Brien... 
J.G.:Yes Raymond O Brien was an a great hurler who unfortunately died tragically at the age of 22 . He had just began to establish a place on the Waterford Senior team and had huge potential . It was great and fitting to win his Memorial Cup in 87.

Brideview Utd AFC Schoolboy Notes

Synergy Credit Union Fermoy U 15 League
Hat trick for Henley
The weather saw many games called off again on Saturday last however Leonard Fraser Park was in excellent condition for our U15 game versus Mogeely.
We had players on trial for the W.W.E.C. U 11 Development team which took place on Sunday last in Cappoquin.
Result: Synergy Credit Union Fermoy U 15 League
Brideview Utd 4 Mogeely FC 2
Jake Henley turned in a powerful performance here as he tormented Mogeely's defence and grabbed a hat trick for himself.
The opening goal came after 10 minutes when a free kick to Utd saw Ciaran Kelleher kick  end up in Mogeely's net. Utd increased their lead after 25 minutes when Josh Good set up Jake Henley for the first of his hat trick.
Mogeely pulled a goal back in the 28th minute but again Henley put Utd in front with his second goal in the 26th minute and Utd held this lead till the break.
Jack McDonnell brought off a terrific save for Utd four minutes into the second half and a minute later Mogeely added a second to come back into the game. Henley secured the points for Utd in the 55th minute when he scored form close range. Henley's hat trick and his outstanding performance made him man of the match. Utd had some other players who also turned in good performances on the day.
So well done to all the boys for a great display and a solid victory. Manager Brian Donnelly was delighted with this display and hopefully we will get a good Cup run.
Utd: Jack McDonnell, Ciaran Lenehan, Adam McSweeney, Alan Hurley, Ian Martin, Alex Bennett, Callum McCarthy, Josh Good, Ciaran Kelleher, Jake Henley, Billy Marsh, Fionn Meaney, all played.
Speedy Recovery
This week we wish a speedy recovery to Ann Tobin Ballyhamlet. Ann is in hospital at the moment but hopefully will be home to the loving tender care of husband James by the time these notes appear.
Academy News
Much good work is being done by the Academy coaches in the club week in week out. However we are looking for more people to come on board. indeed anyone who may be interested in giving some of our managers a hand at U13, U15 and U16 would be more than welcome.
On the mend
The following are all home from hospital and on the mend. They are Sean Tobin, Noel Henley, Michael Delaney, and Helen Scotton. Husbands and wife are doing a great job. I will say no more here. If all those people who have got hip replacements hit the square together I'm sure alarms will go off all over town, Right Gang!!!
Bon Voyage
All in Brideview wish Kieran Fraser and his friend Martin Murphy the best of luck as they head to Australia. The boys left on Saturday last. Kieran was a member of the club. A Junior team while also on the committee. Martin served in the Club as a Manager of our B team. The very best lads from all in Utd.

Trip North: Going back to 1996 when a contingent of U16 hurlers lead by Seánie Sheehan, Colin Cunningham, Finn McCarthy, Tom Doyle, Rachael Ryan and Johnny Geary travelled to the Ulster province and to the Tyrone club Naomh Colum Cille, Tallow has always had a good relationship with the Tyrone hurling club. We were last there in 2006 for the official opening of their field by then president Nickey Brennnan. The same occasion was sandwiched between our senior relegation game and replay against Ballyduff Lower. So Liam Mulcahy the President of Naomh Colum Cille ( surely a lifer in East Tyrone) is looking at getting a collection of junior hurlers to travel to the North . The approx cost will depend of numbers but it will be between €150 and €200. Price will include bus, accommodation, and a meal on arrival.  We are looking for a  €50 deposit by the weekend. Contact Liam or Terence if interested. 

Páirc Éamon de Paor : Minor football Cois Bhríde v Kilrossanty  Sunday at 11.30am (weather permitting). 

Get well soon to both Maireád Sheehan and Seán Tobin who are both in hospital at the minute.
