Willie Connors goal key for Kildangan

Round-up by Michael Dundon for the Irish Examiner newspaper

The elements virtually decimated the Sunday programme for the opening round of the Tipperary SHC with seven of the nine games called off, including the tie of the round, the clash of champions Sarsfields with Borrisoleigh.

Five games were played on Saturday evening and only two of the Sunday games survived, with the big talking point the defeat of last year’s beaten finalists Nenagh Éire Óg by Kildangan, the North champions.

Eire Óg Nenagh’s 1-15 to 0-14 defeat at the hands of Kildangan, in a lively encounter, was thoroughly deserved. Kildangan had Darragh Egan and Martin Minehan sidelined in the second half because of two yellow cards each, but still triumphed. Willie Connors got the decisive goal for Kildangan midway through the first half and they led 1-8 to 0-7 at the break. They maintained that advantage to the finish, their determination and high work rate proving crucial as they compensated for being down to 13 players in a tense finish.

Clonoulty-Rossmore finished strongly at Dolla on Sunday evening to defeat Kilruane MacDonaghs, 0-18 to 1-12. Kilruane were without county men Nialli and Brian O’Meara and they led by only a point, 0-8 to 0-7, at half-time. Timmy Hammersley was taking his points confidently for Clonoulty who went three clear but a Cian Darcy goal for Kilruane had the sides level at the three-quarter stage. However, Clonoulty fired over three points in the closing six minutes to clinch an important win for them.

West champions Éire Óg Anacarty-Donohill had a narrow 0-12 to 0-10 win over Roscrea at the Ragg.

Killenaule overcame J K Brackens with surprising ease, winning by 3-15 to 2-5.

Ballina overpowered Silvermines in the second half of their clash at Nenagh to win by 2-14 to 2-6.

Moyne-Templetuohy finished strongly to grab a draw with Burgess, 1-21 to 3-15. Loughmore-Castleiney comfortably saw off the challenge of Borrisokane by 1-17 to 1-8.
