Weekly  News

9 July 2014


This page gives you a brief taste of events in the club on a week by week basis.

1. PROFILE: Check out the club profile on GAA.ie. archive.  Jackie Tyrrell speaks about  his beloved James Stephens and proves, yet again, why he is such an outstanding ambassador for his family and club. 
2. LEINSTER CHAMPIONS: The Bob O'KeefFe Cup is back on Noreside after a lapse of two years, following Kilkenny's comprehensive defeat of the 2013 provincial champions, Dublin on Sunday afternoon. Brian Cody's superb 'Cats' gave yet another awesome performance in their 0-24 to 1-9, one sided victory over  The Dubs at G.A.A., headquarters. In a team of stars, James Stephens representatives, Eoin Larkin and Jackie Tyrrell, once again, showed their true quality and value to a team with obvious serious All-Ireland title ambitions. Thanks to the renewed spirit,and drive in the camp" Kilkenny followers can look forward to an extended summer hurling campaign.  
3. SENIOR LEAGUE: The crutial fourth round fixture of the senior league/championship against Fenians will take place on Friday evening in Canon Kearns Park, Castlecomer. Throw-in will be at 7.30pm. A win for manager, Mark Tyrrell's team against our historically most difficult opponents, is essential if they are to entertain ambitions of automatic qualification for the championship quarter-finals later in the year. With the return of the senior stars, Eoin Larkin, Jackie Tyrrell, Tomas Keogh and the refreshed, Matt Ruth the opportunity must be there to claim the required result. 
4. LEINSTER MINOR FINAL:  The club's representatives Conor Browne, and Luke Scanlon acquitted themselves well in the Leinster minor final against Dublin in the curtain-raiser to the senior final on Sunday. Both players lined out at centre-field and dominated the area throughout the hour's hurling, allowing The Dubs no breathing space to get their attack moving. A huge turnaround from the early round robin stages of the Leinster campaign when Dublin inflicted a heavy defeat on this group of players.  Well done, lads.
5. BYRNE CUP:  On Tuesday evening's O'Byrne Cup fixture the senior team was edged out of a victory on a 1-15 to 1-13 scoreline by Clara after a very competitive hour's hurling on the Kells Road. Playing with a combination of U-21's and Junior players the team has performed with considerable merit, losing narrowly in most cases, but wisely giving the younger players much needed experience during the league section of the secondary competition. 
6. GOLF CLASSIC:  Some sixty teams lined out in the club's annual golf classic on Thursday afternoon and Friday in changable weather over the two days of the event. The winners of the tournament, with a very creditable, 98 points was Pat Carroll's team. The second prize went to the Co. Limerick team led by Ivan Neary on 91 points with former senior hurler, Paddy Butler's quartet taking's third prize on 90 points. Once again, the organisers, Richie Manogue, Tony Scanlon, Richie Guilfoyle, John Byrne and Dan Cody can be pleased with their efforts as the outing proved, once again, a great success with all teams enjoying, Kilkenny Golf Club's  well managed and testing 18 hole golf track. A  word of thanks too to Seamus Kennedy, who manned the barbeque at the 10th hole providing much needed nourishment for exasperated golfers on the road back to the 19th!!!  The management team would also like to acknowledge the support of Mr. Martin Cornally, manager,  D.I.D.Electric, the main sponsors of the event.
7. U-14 "A" CHAMPIONSHIP: The U-14 "A" team pulled off a "lazarus" like victory over city rivals Dicksboro when they came back from 12 points defecit at half time to claim a two point victory 
courtesy of a barrage of goals to finish with a score of  6-9 to 3-14 for their opponents.
8. DUNGIVEN VISIT: On Saturday afternoon the club's senior team management hosted a visit from the Kevin Lynch's G.A.A. Club, Dungiven, Co.Derry, the home of former St. Patrick's parish residents, Colm and Liam Hinphy. Having played a game in Castlecomer's new grounds they travelled to the club's Larchfield headquarters where they watched the Tipperary v Galway "back door" clash on TV and later enjoyed the musical selections of  Billy Mc.
9. KNOW YOUR SPORT UPDATE: Organiser, John Byrne has posted the latest update on the year long "Know Your Sport " competition. AfterSunday's Leinster final, Paddy Whitty retains the outright lead with 33 points followed by Cathal O'Neill on 29 points. Close behind on 28 points are David Lynch, Paul Coffey1 and Ian O'Mahony. However, followers should stay tuned for updates as the weeks progress for with more than half the year's tournaments and championships yet to come the leader board can quickly change with many unforseen twists and turns to be witnessed in the world of sport.    
10. ST. PATRICK'S WEBSITE: The parish committee has upgraded the parish website and are in the process of making it more accessable and informative. Why not log in at www.patricksprish.com  and post your helpful comments on the new platform.
11. OPERA AT ST. FIACRE'S  The Irish Pilgrimage Trust are holding an " Evening of highlights from the world of opera and musical theatre" in St.Fiacre's Church on Friday night next, 11th July at 8p.m.. Tickets cost Eu 10.00.  Support  for the evening of light entertainment and a worthy cause would be much appreciated. 
12. SYMPATHIES: The sympathies of the club were extended to Mrs.Jean Ruth, Laurel Grove, Loughboy, and her sons, Anthony and Paul on the untimely passing of her husband, Michael, last Thursday.  Michael was a life long passionate Kilkenny supporter, who travelled on Delaney's bus to all of Kilkenny's league and championship fixtures over the years. Both Michael and Jean were for many years members of the James Stephens social club. In a sad twist of irony, Michael was laid to rest on Sunday afternoon in St.Kieran's cemetery, after mid-day mass in St. Fiacre's Church as his beloved Kilkenny were preparing for their Leinster final engagement,-- a game he planned to attend -- with "the Dubs" in Croke Park. 
Commiserations to club stalwart John Grace on the passing of his father, Tom Grace, Sweetbriar Lawn, Tramore. Air dheis dei go raibh a anamnacha dilis.
