Liam Kiely memorial tournament

Earlier today we played in the Liam Kiely memorial 7 a side tournament in Cahir. We were hoping to retain our crown as we won this tournament this time last year. 8 teams in total contested the tournament with 2 groups of 4. In our first game we played local old rivals Newcastle which we won, we were then beaten by a strong St. Mary’s outfit before we defeated Cahir in the last group game. As we had 2 wins under our belt we progressed to the semi final to play Rockwell Rovers who had won all of their group games. We defeated them in a close game, which meant we went on to the final to play St. Marys who had defeated Ballygunner in the other semi final. Unfortunately St. Mary’s were a much stronger team on the day and ran out easy winners in the end. We would just like to thank Cahir GAA for holding this tournament for the second year running  and thanks to all who participated. It was a great tribute to Liam Kiely who would have loved to be there to play the game he loved so much.
