Durlas Og - Tipperary Star Notes

posted Oct 21, 2017, 3:01 AM by John Smith

The following Durlas Og notes were published in this weeks Tipperary Star:

Academy and Under 8.

Training continues on Saturday morning at 10.00am.

 

Under 10

We travelled to Borrisoleigh on Friday evening last, for a challenge  game under lights.  We would like to thank Borrisoleigh for their kind invitation.  We enjoyed good, evenly matched, competitive games, with plenty of skill evident on both sides.

We will be training on Saturday morning at 10.00.

 

Under 12 and Under 14.

Training as advised by mentors.

 

Under 16. 

Saturday 7 October saw the curtain come down on our U16 season when we defeated Cappawhite in the Co A final by 2 19 to 1 15.. But it also marked the end for a number of our players with their time with Durlas Og.

 

This group of players have given great service to Durlas Og and indeed they have been very successful with the club they joined as 7 or 8 year olds. In competition they won many titles.As U 12s they won the Mid Football, before losing out in the Co Final. 2015 was a fantastic year for them when as U14s they won the Feile Peil and represented Tipperary  in the All Ireland Feile Peil held in the South East. That year also saw them win the Co Football and Hurling double, a feat last achieved by Durlas Og in 1991.They rounded off their careers with the club by winning Mid and County titles at U16 Hurling this year.

 

They have been an excellent group of players, not just because of their successes, but also because of their great application to the games and their attitude to mentors, match officials etc while representing the club. They have been successful at both Hurling and Football and indeed are excellent role models for future generations of players from Durlas Og. So to Sean Collins, Kieran Costello, Joe Dwan, Jordan Fahy,  Cathal Hayes, Jack Lanigan, David Mawe, Eoin Purcell, Eoghan Ryan, Cian Stakelum, Patrick Stakelum and Peter Wall, we say Well Done, Keep playing Gaelic Games, and best of luck in your future careers. Go neirí an t-ádh libh and slán go fóill.

 

Date for the Diary:

December 1st: Medal Presentation night, Thurles Campus LIT. Further details to follow.

The following Durlas Og notes were published in this weeks Tipperary Star:

Under 8 and Academy
Training as advised by mentors. 

There are only a few weeks left for training. If anyone would like to bring their children to the last few sessions of the year as a taster for next year, you would be more than welcome.  (Academy, Under 8 and Under 10)

Under 10
On Saturday, October 14th we will be taking part in a Monster Munster Go-Games tournament. It will take place in Doctor Morris Park,. We have entered 4 teams, 9 per team to ensure each boy plays all the games. This will be our final session of the year. 

 Under 12 & 14
Training as advised by mentors.

Under 16
We won the U16 A Co Final when we defeated Cappawhite in an exciting contest in Holycross on Saturday. Playing with the aid of a stiff breeze we opened the scoring with a Jack Lanigan point. A goal from Liam McCormack gave us some breathing space and we lead by 1-11 to 0 7 at the break. A resilient Cappawhite fought back in the second half but with our defence holding firm we still lead by 7 with ten minutes remaining. However a Cappawhite goal reduced the margin and set up a very exciting finish. We dug deep and showed a lot of character in the closing minutes and it was fitting that it was our captain Jack Lanigan who had the final say when he crashed the sliotar to the net in the final minute.

Full time score Durlas Og 2 19 Cappawhite 1 15. There were great scenes of jubiliation as Jack lifted the cup to record our first win in this grade since 2011.

Congratulations
Well done to our under 16 on winning the county final on Saturday last, a hearty congratulations to Thurles Sarsfields on their win on Sunday.

Under 16
Our U16 Hurlers qualified for the A Co Final when they defeated Nenagh by 2 11 to 0 8 in the semi final played in Templetouhy on Saturday. This was a tougher game than the scoreline would suggest. We played with a gale force wind in the opening half and got off to a great start and lead by 5 points after 7 minutes. But Nenagh settled and fought their way back into the game. A brilliant goal by Jack Lanigan just before half time was crucial for us and we lead by 1 08  to 0 02 at half time. Nenagh , with the aid of the wind, put us under huge pressure in the second half, but our backs were outstanding and never allowed them to get the goal they needed. At the other end of the field our forwards worked tirelessly to make sure Nenagh got nothing easily. Three minutes from the end, substitute Peter Wall scored our second goal to wrap up the win. This was an excellent sporting and physical encounter which reflected really well on the character of our team and we now look forward to playing the winners of the South or West in the Co Final.

The following Durlas Og notes were published in this weeks Tipperary Star:

Academy/ Under 8
Our lads travelled to Holycross last Saturday to play against Holycross/Ballycahill.  The lads enjoyed a great mornings hurling. Thanks to Holycross for the invite and the hospitality shown to us. We hope to  return the invite in the future.

Under 10
Training as usual on Wednesday evening. Reminder: We will be travelling to Cork on Saturday September 16th, to play in a tournament at the kind invitation of Cork Sarsfields. O’Loughlin Gaels ( Kilkenny), Ballygunner (Waterford) and Cork Sarsfields are also taking part.  We are fielding 3 teams so we are hoping for a full turnout. The tournament starts at 10.00am so our bus will be departing from Durlas Óg at 8.00am sharp. We expect to be back in Thurles for 3.00pm sharp. While our hosts will be providing some refreshments for the lads, it would probably be best if they brought a packed lunch. They will also require a change of clothes, depending on the weather conditions.

Under 12
Training as advised by mentors.

Under 14
Well done to both teams on reaching the county finals. This is a great achievement by the boys, and it is due to their great attitude and hard work.  The county finals take place on Saturday in Boherlahan.
