Report from the Mid Tipperary Coiste ná nÓg Facebook page

The only game that was close at halftime, killer second half scores and Moycarkey Borris wayward shooting were enough to see Loughmore Castleiney take home the title.

Playing with the wind Moycarkey had the first chance of a score, unfortunately it wouldn’t be their last free that failed to raise a white flag. The first score was Loughmore’s Brian Gleeson who worked hard all day was fouled. Ciaran McCormack easily sent the free over. Both teams efforts to win possession resulted in a lot of frees. Any wind advantage was passing Borris by. The second and third scores came in quick succession. A ball into the square wasn’t cleared, Padraig Treacy profited to point. The puck out was hunted down, Moycarkey fouled trying to clear, again Ciaran McCormack pointed, 0.3 – 0.0. It was third time lucky for Borris as David Doyle who was starting to really come into the game converted, 0.3 – 0.1. Gavin Shorley’s last-ditch tackle denied Moycarkey a certain goal, the resulting ‘65’ was missed. Just past the mid way point Captain Adam Costello showed the way, his side step and run was illegally stopped, he converted the free. He would be on hand get the last score of the half  - 0-3 to 0-3.

Darragh Kelly denied Moycarkey a goal, the ‘65’ was missed and with it a chance to take the lead. A Ciaran McCormack free saw Loughmore go in front, they followed it with a super point. Ciaran passed to the corner, Padraig Treacy gathered, his pass was perfect to Ronan Carroll who pointed, .0-5 to 0-3. Moycarkey’s Joe Egan was there to point after some good tackling. The first goal came from when Loughmore won a Moycarkey puck out, the ball was sent back into the box and despite good defending, Ciaran McCormack booted home. David Doyle gave some hope with a great score, another chance straight after that went wide. The glimmer of hope was wiped away, Ciaran in full forward didn’t get a clean shot, but was on hand to finish the rebound. 2-5 to 0-5. A long ball up field, Queva O’Meara’s catch was brilliant, she was fouled, the free was lined up by Adam Costello he somehow found a path to goal. Just a puck of a ball between them as Jimmy Doyle was hauled down heading through on goal. Ciaran Mc Cormack stepped up his penalty was almost saved by Joey Ryan, 3-5 to 1-5

Loughmore’s Ciaran McCormack was a more than a handful scoring 3-3. Against the wind Moycarkey scored 1-2 that’s more than the combined score of the three other finals against the wind. Martin Bourke presented to a delighted Padraig Treacy and commended all for a sporting game.
