Our senior footballers quest for county glory came to an end last weekend when we fell at the final hurdle against Clonmel Commercials. In atrocious weather conditions we took time to settle and Clonmel took full advantage opening up a 10 point advantage at half time. The team showed real fight after the restart however and took the match to Commercials, creating a number of chances. A goal from Conor Fahey with 6 minutes left drew possibly the largest cheer of the day from the Semple Stadium crowd. Clonmel used all their experience though to see out the match 1-10 to 1-2. While this is a disappointing finish it must be remembered this is a historic season for football in the parish to get to the final two, especially considering the quarter finals was the furthest we had previously reached. The season is not fully over yet though as the mid championship is still up for grabs. We face Loughmore-Castleiney in the semi final next Wednesday 26th at 8pm in Templetouhy.
