Hurling - Our Junior “B” Hurlers gave a good account of themselves when they played Moyle Rovers in Ardfinnan on last Wednesday night. Cahir started really well and led 10 points to 3 in the middle of the first half. However, Moyle Rovers improved as the game progressed and scored vital goals to reduce the deficit. The standard of play was very good with a total of seven goals scored. Everybody thought Cahir had won by a point but the referee scored it a draw with Cahir 3-17 to Moyle Rovers 4-14. The team and scorers were as follows: Thomas Molan, Keelan Looby, James Walsh, Liam Hickey, Mark Casey, Liam Meehan, Dara Heffernan, Daniel Moloney (0-1), Ger Quinn, Conor O’Brien (0-2), Johnny B. O’Brien (1-0), Eoin O’Neill, Jack Buckley (0-12), Eoghan Kelly (2-1), Daragh Howard (0-2). Subs Used: Callum McGrath, Killian Halpin, Ciaran O’Donnell and Liam O’Neill.

On Sunday morning all roads led to Dr Morris Park for the County Feile Finals. Cahir were up against our South rivals Killenaule in the Final. Cahir got off to a slow start and were 1-5 / 0-1 down at half time. The second half Cahir showed great heart and scored three unanswered points. Unfortunately it was too late for a comeback.
