Showdown on Leeside

There are no safety nets in Pairc ui Chaoimh on Sunday next when Waterford face Wexford in the All-Ireland senior Hurling Quarter Final. It is a case of winner takes all and heads to the semi-final while the loser will have to lick wounds until the start of the 2018 campaign. I'm expecting an incredible atmosphere in the famed refurbished Cork venue. Indeed reports from the venue following the huge amount of development suggest we will see a full house for the second game of championship hurling weekend, Tipperary face Clare on Saturday, so there is also a novelty "being feeling" about the whole fixture.

The Slaneysiders come into this stage of the competition following their defeat to Galway in the Leinster Final 0-29 to 1-17. Fair to say that most observers and indeed odds layers have the Tribesmen

Waterford grind out a victory in Longford

Longford Town 0 Waterford FC 1

Paul Keegan, who only joined the club two days before the match scored the golden goal at the City Calling Stadium on Saturday night as Waterford maintained their six points advantage at the top of the league table. Keegan spent the last six years playing with Doncaster Rovers and Pat Fenlon, the Waterford Director of Football moved quickly to secure his signature when he returned home to Ireland. Paul played on the successful Bohemians team which Pat Fenlon managed some years ago and his capture could be the final link in the promotion charge. Cobh Ramblers are in second place following their victory over UCD and this Friday Cobh come to the RSC. This top of the table clash is expected to attract the largest attendance to the Kilbarry

There’ll be days like this!

Sweet victory for the DÉise

Semple Stadium in Thurles has seen many victories for the Waterford Senior Hurling team but I doubt there have been many sweeter than Semple Stadium in Thurles than Saturday last as the Deise beat Kilkenny for their first championship win over the Cats since that day way back in 1959 when the Liam McCarthy Cup came across the Suir. There had been much speculation about this game, a meeting of the two neighbours, with many pundits divided on how the result would turn out. Indeed before the match began Kilkenny who had been slight favourites during the week, were now available at evens, such was the confidence from the Waterford supporters. Waterford bainisteoir Derek McGrath and his management team started the fifteen as selected while Brian Cody made three changes with Jonjo

Four All Ireland Juvenile titles won

On Saturday and Sunday last in Tullamore the first two days of the Irish Life Health All Ireland under 13 to 19 Track and Field Championships were held with a sizeable entry from Waterford and there were four local winners as well as second and third placings also. The winners are all very consistent young athletes and with a Championship best performance Shane Monagle Tramore set the standard continuing his very successful season by easily winning the under 18 110 metres hurdles in a very good time of 14.18 seconds. Two Waterford AC athletes in top form also this season both won under 18 titles James Murphy the long jump with 6.38 metres and Órla O'Connor easily won the u 18 3000 metres walk in 14 minutes3.21 seconds..The fourth winner came from Ferrybank and Katie

Waterford increase their lead at the top

Waterford FC 2 - Wexford FC 1

Waterford FC have moved six points clear at the top of the First Division league table following this hard earned victory over Wexford at the RSC on Friday night last. This was the third time this season that the Blues came out on top against their neighbours in league football and they also knocked them out of the ES Sports Cup. Just like the previous two league meetings the Waterford team had to battle hard to come out on top and in this contest they had to come from behind to win. The visitors went in at the interval with a one goal lead despite the fact that the hosts were completely on top but a goal just before the halftime whistle turned the game on it's head.

Job done without fuss

The Waterford Senior Hurlers travelled to O'Connor Park in Tuallamore on Saturday with high hopes of progressing in the All-Ireland qualifiers series. Huge favourites to win following their near-miss against Cork in the Provincial semi-final, the team under manager Derek McGrath had worked hard in the interim to iron out the faults of that Semple Stadium defeat. Offaly on the other hand under Mount Sion clubman Kevin Ryan were on a retrieval mission following a harrowing defeat to All-Ireland outright favourites Galway and having home advantage, there was some optimism in the Faithful camp.

Conditions in Tullamore saw a breezy day which was to favour Waterford in the opening half. Talisman and hurler of the year Austin Gleeson lined up at centre forward and was immediately in the action which brought a foul on the energetic Jamie Barron

Waterford's lead reduced to three points

Shelbourne 1 Waterford FC 1

Waterford got caught in the dying minutes for the second time this season in Tolka Park on Friday night last. Back on St Patrick's Day they were leading 2-1 but the Reds snatched a goal to grab a late point. Last Friday the Blues were leading one nil and a precious victory was looking odds on but again the hosts somehow managed to find the Blues net with time almost up. Substitute Aaron Ashe was only on the field for two minutes when he took a pass from another replacement, Dayle Rooney and he drilled the ball past Matthew Connor in the Waterford goal. It was a hard goal to take from a Waterford point of view but all things considered Shelbourne deserved a share of the spoils for the game.

It’s the Faithful

On the comeback trail following defeat to Cork last weekend in the Munster Senior Hurling semi-final, Waterford have been paired with Offaly in the opening round of the All-Ireland qualifiers. This is a unique game in more ways than one as Kevin Ryan, the manager of the Midlanders, is a born and bred Waterford man with a huge knowledge of hurling in his home county and must now surely relish the opportunity of seeing his adopted team face the challenge. The counties have only met on four previous occasions and as recently as three years ago the Deise travelled to the really well appointed Tullamore to face the home side in the Allianz National League before coming through and ultimately winning the competition. While the Faithful County have been through a lean period in recent times, there is

    Rights & WrongsGiven the ubiquity of the car it is no wonder that any time there is proposed legislation banning certain behaviours that there is some sort of outcry against it. The Cabinet approval of Transport Minister Shane Ross’ ban of three months of anyone registering a 50-80mg alcohol reading is yet another example of people saying that there are too many laws and legislations surrounding driving. The fact remains however that there are still too many people on the road drinking and driving and i …
