Antrim vs Carlow- Report for county website

CARLOW hurlers recovered from a dreadful start to overcome Antrim in this exciting tie at Dr Cullen Park, Carlow yesterday and set up a home final meeting with neighbours Laois.

The Saffrons raced into a 1-3 to no score lead after seven minutes, right half-forward Eddie McCloskey opening the scoring with a goal on three minutes.

Carlow slowly gained a foothold and in the 10th minute were boosted by a fine individual goal from centre-forward Eddie Byrne.

Carlow went 2-11 to 1-11 in front on 46 minutes and still held a three-point advantage when the Saffrons were awarded a 35-metre free in the dying stages. Liam Watson's effort rose over the bar and Carlow were through to the final.

These sides meet again in the opening round of the NHL on Sunday next when Antrim have home ground advantage.

Scorers -- Carlow: E Byrne 1-3, R Dunbar 1-1, C Hughes 0-3 (1f), A Gaule, R Coady (1f, 1 '65) 0-2 each, C Doyle, B Lawler and P Kehoe 0-1 each. Antrim: L Watson 0-7 (0-5f), S McCrory 0-4, E McCloskey 1-0, A Smiley 0-2, K McKeegan (1f), M Scullion 0-1 each.

Paedophiles are clever in that they enter Vocations like teaching, priesthood, Boy Scout leaders and other jobs that will bring them into contact with children.

The church is to blame for covering up, the state is to be blamed for ignoring pleas from victims, families are to be blamed for not listening to their children.

The celibacy is not the reason for raping children; the feckers doing it are just animals and need to be put down. But I believe the Catholic Church would be stronger if priest could marry or have partners.

Iím a non practicing Catholic, don't care much for religion and not against anyone who does.

our club woud not have major problems, having 3 senior all county and 2 all county hurling teams we have plenty of teams for players to play for. for the ones looking to just enjoy we have two divisional teams (south antrim)

our biggest problem is losing players to overseas colleges, they don't always come back

the team really picks itself to a certain point.

 after 8 championships in 9/10 years, as many minor titles and under 21 titles they are all looking to get on that team.

there are at least 35 players on that squad. majority all goodins

serious selection problem ahead for Sunday. all players through last nights training and all fit and raring to go. Naomh Galls bench is very stong with quality footballers and this may have beaing on the game.

i know the team i'd like to see, but Lenny will have done his homework and hopefully our club will go into our centenary year with two All Ireland Semi Finals in both codes to look forward to.

proper Gaa


Atticus, if Darren got his hands on ya you'd look like Yoda

aye its a bit of a shame that the county board couldn't reprise the thing. played against them (the oldies) once while i  moonlighted for the BT interfirms team. some good players and a bit of spring in their step.

the football over 40's has went from strength to strength. one of our players has captained the Ireland team at the internationls here and in Oz

Was there not a few Down men on the last Antrim over 40's hurling team?

Wouldn't be eligible myself though, another few years to wait  ;D

Nobody would ever guess you're a ringer though looking at ye :)

says the follically challenged one

I don't even have a BT PHONE!!

Besides it was a bit of craic. we played the Kilkenny team that year in the All Ireland semi's at Milltown, the team had Richie Power playing for them. to say the stuffed us is an understatement. though we (they) did score a point in the seconf half :D and we won the toss

gives sunny weather for Sunday. the pitch is better than it has been in the past. we played there after a long spell of rain and the pitch was fine. 

8 each should it be raining on Sunday is a good bet

great game to look forward to, Loup are great at grinding out results and can be cute when it comes 'making scores'

last day out against Loup we failed to play the type of game that took us to the final in 2003. and it became a struggle, was pretty much an ugly game.

Brennan is no mug either, and may have blockers in place to stop our running game, with some winding up for the usual tagets (though they have not reacted this year) they can play good football but their downfall has to be Benny tipping them today in the Irish News

i'm going for a low a low scoring game- 0-10 to 0-9

good goal by that other team, but Utd seem to be playing really well going forward

Any word on if any of the players are not going to the trials and has Milltown be added to the list after the weekend?

i might not go as i'm still fooked. but might be intertested in having his 'trial' team play ours in a non County get together 'trial' match ;)

i'm more interested in the over 40 team but it seems it has fallen to the wayside. i believe you can play for them when your 39?? only in Ireland
