On Saturday last our U12 A & B were participating in the county final
of the end games in Littleton.
It was a wonderful day of hurling for all involved.
Our U12”A” took on Kildangan first in what was an exciting game of
hurling.  With scores from Gavin Byrne, Brian Lacey, Daniel Quigley,
Conor McGrath, Ben Owens & Brian Quirke.  We won on a scoreline of
Moyle Rovers 3-3 Kildangan 3-2.  We then faced Boherlahan in the Semi
Final. This was yet again another very close contest.  Our scorers for
this game were Ben Owens, Brian Lacey & Diarmuid Mulcahy, but it was a
last minute goal for Boherlahan that bet us.  Final score Moyle Rovers
2-2 Boherlahan 2-3.  U12 “A” panel of players were: Gavin Byrne, Ross
Gavin, Brian Lacey, Diarmuid Mulcahy, Jack Phelan, Daniel Quigley,
Kieran Quirke, Sean Cotter, Jack Holohan, Conor McGrath, Ben Owens,
Josh Power, Brian Quirke, Conor Og Ryan.  Well done to all the boys.

Our U12 “B” took on Lorrha in their first game.  There was very little
between the sides but Anthony Phelan who scored 1-3 with Cian Walsh
added a further point, to come away with a great win.  Final Score
Moyle Rovers 1-4 Lorrha 0-4.   Then now faced Thurles Gael in the semi
final,  Our scoring ability was a little more widespread in this game
with scores from Ciaran Casey, Joe Devoy, Sean Hackett & Anthony
Phelan.  Again winning by 3 points.  Final score Moyle Rovers 2-3
Thurles Gaels 0-6.  It was back to a battle of the South for the
county final as their apponents were neighbours Clonmel Og.  This was
a great game of hurling with nothing between the sides throughout the
game.  It was Anthony Phelan who scored out two points but Clonmel Og
managed to score that vital third point.  Final Score Moyle Rovers 0-2
Clonmel Og 0-3.  U12 “B” panel: Rian Bolton, Michael Cleary, Jake
Fahey, Aaron Kiely, Mike McGrath, Seamas O Brien, Brian O’Sullivan,
Harry Phelan, Adam Maher, Ciaran Casey, Joe Devoy, Sean Hackett, Aidan
Lonergan, Brian McKeown , Brian O Dea, Anthony Phelan & Cian Walsh.
Well done to all the boys.

On Saturday evening our attention then turn to our Intermediate
Hurlers.  The South Semi Final against St Marys in Cahir.  St Marys
got off to a good start scoring two unanswered point but as the first
half went on we battled on and managed to go in level at half time 0-7
each.   The team scored point for point until the 11th Minute of the
second half, when points from Sean Carey (free), Peter Acheson &
Declan Browne gave us a three point lead with 9 minutes left to play.
It all went wrong from there, as St Marys managed to score 5
unanswered point to win in the closing minutes on a final scoreline of
Moyle Rovers 0-13 St Marys 0-15.


Best of Luck to Sean Carey & Tipperary Intermediate Hurlers who take
on Kilkenny in the All Ireland Final in Semple Stadium next Saturday
1st September at 6-30pm.

The club wishes John Shanahan a speedy recovery after his recent injuries

Camogie. Our under 13s made the long trek to the Commons last Wednesday evening to play local hosts Ballingarry in a challenge game as part of their preparations for the upcoming county quarter finals vs Borrisleigh.Our U10 camogie girls travelled to the Ragg last  Saturday ,September 1st, to participate in a county blitz. Nenagh, Holycross, Fethard and Drom were in our group. The girls had four competitive games. We were ably represented by Ella Ryan, Tara McGrath, Triona Ryan , Alana Dowling, Ava Collins , Eimear Mc Keown, Orlaith Breen , Grainne O Donnell and Makayala O Donnell. The girls showed great improvement in skills and ability. Well done all and thank you to Aine O Donnell and Caitriona Mc Grath who travelled with them. Training continues every Friday at 6pm. Our interclub league began last Friday evening in Monroe. Four teams battle it out over the next three weeks to see who will win the interclub League. Aoife Power and Megan Shanahan's teams were  successful against Kate Delahunty and Caroline Quirke's teams. Running side  side is an individual skills  competition.
Ladies Football. The Juniors recorded a comprehensive win over Emily last Monday evening and have qualified for the county Final. . Both the Seniors and under 14s will participate in the 7s competition to be held in Dublin coinciding with the Ladies Football finals at the end of September. Our under 10 girls completed their inter-county Summer Blitz on Saturday week last in Monroe.  The aim of these blitzes is to promote the development of all players through full participation in a non-competitive manner.  This was certainly achieved and a very enjoyable experience was had by players and mentors alike.Along with Brian Borus of Clogheen/Ballylooby and Clonmel Commercials; Moyle Rovers, who fielded two teams, certainly enjoyed and benefited from the games and ended the four-part blitz on Saturday with great gusto.
