Stradbally – Clashmore Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 15:00

The following year Mary ORourke was named on the All-Star panel for her performances with the county team. The following year the club headed to Dublin for the All-Ireland Intermediate 7-a-side competition. The panel on the day was Deirdre ORourke who was the only player to play every minute of all six matches on the day, Sinead ORourke, Fiona ORourke, Anna Beresford who was catlike in goal, Sarah Flavin, Grainne Nolan, Claire Marks, Aishling ODonnell, Cliona OKeeffe, Edel Wilson, Alice Fitzgerald, Geraldine Daly, and Mary ORourke who scored a total of 23 goals on the day. After six hard matches and surviving a penalty shoot-out the club was crowned with All-Ireland glory.

After a slow beginning which left Nire looking like they were going to be easy winners, the Clashmore defence came to grips with their opposition and very well worked goals from Jason Seward and Cillian O Keeffe in the 21st and in the 24th minutes gave them the confidence to drive on and take the game to their more fancied opponents.

Tadhg de Brca also played well and he especially stood out in the final five minutes when the result was on the line. Brian OHalloran had a stormer tonight. 6. There are so many talented footballers in the county not playing football for the county team. He made a great field in the goalmouth when a long range Brian Wall free dropped into the danger zone on 58 minutes. He then made a great turnover on Jamie Barron moments later and was a constant source for the ball when Clashmore/Kinsalebeg were playing keep ball to wind down the four minutes of added time. If only the age of the dual star wasnt gone. Jamie Barron played very well, in particular in the first half.

Following an unsuccessful period, the club was re-founded in 1959 by Joseph O'Keeffe and others. Clashmore won what was called the Primary Championship in 1962 by beating Portlaw by 1-10 to 0-4. Success came in 1969 when Clashmore-Kinsalebeg won a double by winning the Waterford Intermediate Football Championship title against Dunhill by 3-6 to 2-4, and a Waterford Junior Hurling Championship title when beating Kilgobinet by 3-4 to 3-2. The Kinsalebeg club had again been playing as a separate entity for some years previous, but in 1967 both clubs combined once again.

Four minutes of added time were quite correctly called by Tommy O Sullivan, whose refereeing added to the enjoyment of this game, but try as they did, Nire could not get the equalising score. It could have been a costly miss but half a minute later, the long whistle sounded and Clashmore had earned two valuable championship points in Group 1. As often happens, the team under pressure lifted the siege and Paul O Connor had the opportunity to close out the game but his fisted effort for a point came back off the upright.

After enduring a woeful 2014 campaign, Clashmore/Kinsalebeg lay down a marker of intent with an inspired and dogged win over Nire. Their defence and composure in the final 15 minutes was top class and the grit and determination shown by players such as Sean and Ciaran Bourke and Aidan Trihy was fierce. With Brian OHalloran, Tadhg de Brca, Cillian OKeefe and Paul OConnor in top form and Sean Fleming yet to make a starting return to the team, Clashmore/Kinsalebeg could be in for a very strong 2015 campaign. Two goals near half-time set them on their way and they built on that foundation early in the second half.

Very few times possession was given away from this option as the passing was pinpoint from both teams. Even in the final 15 minutes (Clashmore/Kinsalebeg hit their last score on 44 minutes to go 2-8 to 0-10 points up) the quality of the game didnt drop as Clashmore/Kinsalebeg circled the wagons. With football getting so much bad press nationally, it was great to see the game being played at such a high speed and directness. Aiden Trihy and Sen Bourke showed great appetite for the challenge in the closing stages. They rushed out of their packed back-line to meet them head on and broke out of defence on the counter-attack at pace. Long kick-passing dominated the game for 45 minutes with both sides playing orthodox and attacking quickly. 7. Although their half-forward line and midfield retreated into defence they didnt wait for Nire to walk in on them.

Over the years Clashmore/Kinsalebeg ladies has consistently produced players of a high calibre, many underage girls have gone on to represent Waterford County and 9 girls have worn the county jersey in the adult grade namely, Mary ORourke, Deirdre ORourke, Clona OKeeffe, Edel Wilson, Aileen Barron, Trish Fitzgerald, Ashling O Donnell, Margaret Foley and Jess Fitzgerald. The big focus is on the underage teams at present to have strong foundations and sowing the seeds for success in the not too distant future. For a small rural community, this is an amazing achievement.

Clashmore/Kinsalebeg managed to hold on however showing great nerve and strength in defence to keep the champions at bay. The finish was edge of the seat. Cutting in from an angle he opted to insure the win and went to handpass the ball over the bar. Four minutes of added time was called for. 9. Paul OConnor was unleashed with a ball into him in the corner and with him and his marker the onlyoutfieldplayers at that end of the pitch he was away in for goal in a one-on-one situation. However, dramatically, it came back off the post and Nire galloped down the field to have another crack at the opposition defence.
