Cappamore GAA Results and Reports

All-Ireland Junior B hurling semi-final

CAPPAMORE (Limerick) 0-14 BALLINDEREEN (Galway) 1-10
Munster Champions Cappamore qualified for the All-Ireland junior B hurling final in Killeedy to be played on 9th February after a long battle in testing elements against the Galway champions Ballindereen. It was indeed a game of two halves as Cappamore took full advantage of the wind at their backs during the first half.
Cappamore built up a seven-point lead by the break on the back of Liam Creamer’s free-taking and defence inspired by centre-back Jack Sheehan, soaking up whatever was thrown at them.
The wind and rain picked up after half-time but Cappamore looked to be comfortable and in control until Ballindereen sub Seán Corcoran struck the game’s only goal at sixty minutes. Cappamore however kept their nerve and never lost their composure even when Ballindereen came within sight of the winning post. Man of the match Kevin Doyle was in great form in defence as was Paddy Ryan Luke.
Nearing the end of normal time substitute Matthew Ryan scored an inspirational point from play when Cappamore were finding scores hard to come by.

SCORERS, CAPPAMORE: Liam Creamer 0-8 (8 frees), Jack Walsh 0-2, Donal O’Mahoney, Jack Sheehan, Conor O’Brien, Matthew Ryan 0-1 each;

CAPPAMORE: Shane Slattery; Conor Fitzgibbon, Séamus Lane, Kevin Doyle; Mark Tracey, Jack Sheehan, Paddy Ryan; Kevin Ryan, Conor O’Brien; Jack Walsh, Anthony Foley, Liam Creamer; Jamie McCarthy, Éamonn Moloney, Donal O’Mahoney. SUBS: Kieran Hickey for Éamonn Moloney (51 minutes), Matthew Ryan for Jamie McCarthy (56 minutes), Darragh O’Dwyer for Anthony Foley (58 minutes), Liam Walsh for Kevin Ryan (injured, 60 minutes).

The club AGM was held last weekend with officers and managers assigned for the year ahead. The big news to come out of the meeting was the amalgamation of our GAA and Camogie clubs. This forward thinking can only be a good thing for the club going forward with less administration and sends out a positive note for both codes.

Cappamore ICA 45th Anniversary

Cappamore ICA 45th Anniversary.

Cappamore ICA Guild celebrated its Sapphire Anniversary with a lovely leisurely lunch in Hayes’ Éibhle Restaurant on Sunday 20th January. Thirty members gathered to celebrate this special milestone in the history of the Guild. Guild President, Joan McLoughlin welcomed the members to the celebration. Annette Long, Limerick Federation President, was the guest of honour and she paid tribute to the Guild for its active participation in both Federation and National ICA events. She also presented long-standing Guild members with certificates to mark their continued involvement in the Guild and its activities. Nancy Ryan, past President, thanked President Joan, Secretary Mairéad McKenna and Treasurer Berna Bourke for all the work they had put into the event. A PowerPoint presentation by Maura Walsh, detailing in photos and words the very many activities, trips and events of the Guild down the years, was a nostalgic trip down memory lane. The day finished with the cutting of the cake by the Guild officers. Laughter and chat filled the day and the sense of camaraderie present throughout the day is a great indicator that Cappamore ICA Guild is going from strength to strength.
