Austin Deasy R.I.P.



Austin Deasy R.I.P.
On behalf of all in our club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Austin Deasy, who passed away yesterday. Prior to his election as a TD, where he served Waterford for twenty five years in the Dáil, including five as Minister for Agriculture, Austin had been deeply involved in our club for many years.
After hanging up his playing boots Austin served as a club committee member, going on to become club Treasurer in the 1960's and he was centrally involved in the successful amalgamation of our club in 1967. Austin was also a selector on numerous club teams including the Senior Hurling team who contested the 1969 County Final.
A lover of all sports, but especially GAA and horse racing, Austin remained a lifelong supporter of our club and indeed he had an encyclopedic memory of matches going back to the 1950's. He greatly enjoyed recalling these memories or discussing the issues of the day in the company of others over a drink or two and he remained a very popular figure around the Village up to his recent illness. 
Once again we send our sympathies to Austin's family especially his wife Kathleen and children John, Sally, Jane and Jamie.

U12
A couple of games played in the last week with St Mary’s of Clonmel coming to the Burgery on a lovely Tuesday evening for a hurling challenge. The boys didn't play anywhere near their potential and lost out by 4 pts in the end to a strong outfit from south Tipp. Thanks to St. Mary's for travelling.
Then Friday evening we headed to the Mill Field in the Nire to take on Fourmilewater in Round 3 of the Town & Country Hurling League. Our first attack saw us score a goal but FMW fought back to take the lead with 4 pts of their own. With half time approaching the heavens opened and we gained the advantage again to lead by 2 pts. 2nd half and an early goal for us, but credit to FMW, who came back at us again, but we held out thanks to a couple of scores as the game was nearing the end.
Panel for both nights: S Walsh, A Barrett, B O'Connell, F Murchu, J Fitzgerald Drummey, K Cosgrave, S Queally, D Morrissey, D Walsh, J O'Donnell, C Sweeney, J O'Donovan, E Keohan, B Callaghan, J Mulcahy, C Dunne Fitzgerald, D Cosgrave, B Crotty.

U12 Tournament
What a day we had on Saturday April 29th. We were invited to the inaugural Paddy Moore tournament held by the Naomh Chartaigh club at the Lismore GAA grounds. 3 games, 72 mins hurling, 9-8 scored 3-8 conceded meant we qualified for the final after matches against St. Catherine's of Cork, Naomh Charthaigh and Cois Bhride, Tallow. Another game, another 40 mins hurling and the final was in the melting pot right up to the last whistle, which saw the host club emerge victors by two points, with our lads fighting back from 7 points down but that piece of luck eluded us preventing us coming away with the trophy. Well done to Naomh Chartaigh and many thanks for the invite. A great days hurling had by the boys with the final being game of the day.
