Treble dream dies for Blues

Waterford FC 3 - Bohemians 4

Having won the Southern League and the Under 17 Cup Waterford FC were hoping to complete the treble this season but their hopes and dreams died during a disastrous four minute spell between the 55th and 59th minutes. Leading two nil at the break a Thursday date with Cork City in the final in Turners Cross looked very much on the cards but they shot themselves in the foot by handing the Dubliners three goals during that crazy period and they just could not get back on a level keel afterwards. It was a sad end to their campaign but these young players have been a credit to the club all season and they can still hold their heads high.

It was Blues goalkeeper Charlie Heffernan that was called into action to

Gunners take aim at Munster

Ballygunner, favourites from the outset, duly completed their four in a row of JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championships on Sunday last at Walsh Park. Before a sizable crowd the Gunners once again proved their pedigree as they overcame a resilient De La Salle on a 2-18 to 0-16 scoreline. The Gunners have certainly been the most impressive outfit throughout the current domestic campaign and going into the Munster Championship on Sunday next they will face another team, Tipperary four in a row kingpins, Thurles Sarsfields who themselves will also be high in confidence.

COUNTY FINAL

On Sunday last the weather was excellent for hurling. A light breeze blowing from the "country end" favoured Ballygunner in the opening half. De La Salle were forced to make one change before the start as full back Ian Flynn, who

Blues march on in dramatic fashion

Waterford FC 1 Dundalk 1 (AET). Waterford won 4-3 on pens)

The relentless run of victories of the Waterford Under 17 team continued at the RSC on Saturday last. To date they have won the Southern Section of the Elite League and a few weeks ago they were crowned cup champions. This game was the quarter final of the National League overall. The top four in the Southern Section joined up with the top four in the Northern Section and the Blues were drawn against a Dundalk side who had finished 4th in their section. The Blues were favourites to come out on top and had to go all the way to book a place in the last four. The contest had to be decided by a penalty shoot-out and Charlie Heffernan the home goalkeeper proved

Favourites through to the final

Last weekend saw the completion of the JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championship and while results went more or less as expected there was some nervous moments among the Ballygunner and De La Salle supporters before the conclusion of both games. From the outset of the competition the bookies had both semi-final winners, Ballygunner and De La Salle, at the head of the markets and throughout the campaign it always looked pretty much as though they would have a major bearing on the destination of the Waterford News and Star Cup. However what the records will not say is how preciously close both teams came to the "exit door" as both Passage, against De La Salle, and Lismore, against Ballygunner put up heroic performances before succumbing at the death.

On Sunday afternoon in horrenduous conditions De

Cork winner of Solas 10 miles

An entry of close to 2,600 was received for the Annual Solas Centre 10 miles run and 5 Miles walk in the city and surrounding areas on Sunday last in ideal weather conditions, the majority in the 5 miles event. At the start in Gladstone St a sea of orange was visible as men women and children, many in prams and buggies took part in the walk and a most enjoyable time was had by all with a great atmosphere all around the route and in the Peoples Park for the finish of both the Run and the Walk. The run turned out be a procession for Bantry doctor Alan O'Shea a regular at road races right up to the Marathon distance all over Ireland. He led from the start and was never troubled as

Third and last defeat for Waterford FC

Cobh Ramblers 2 - Waterford FC 1

ONE of the goals of the season from young David Hurley dragged this end-of-season clash out of the ordinary as league runners-up Cobh Ramblers beat the First Division league champions and promoted Waterford by a goal at St Colman’s Park on Saturday afternoon.

Ramblers accorded the newly crowned champions and manager Alan Reynolds a guard of honour and applauded the opposition on to the field of play and then promptly outplayed them to lead by the extraordinary volleyed goal by Hurley at the interval.

It was Cobh’s last game of the season and it proved to be a fitting end to the campaign for Stephen Henderson’s boys who would have been two or even three goals up at the break but for an incredible one handed, reflex save by Ian

Championship down to four

Last weekend saw the completion of the quarter finals of the JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championship with no real surprises and all fancied teams coming through the "minefield". On Saturday afternoon in Walsh Park it was the turn of reigning champions Ballygunner, on course for four in a row, to face their long time city rivals and title laden Mount Sion. Both managers, Gunners Feargal Hartley and Nicholas Mackey of Mount Sion would have been well aware that there was a rich tradition of winning in both camps. They would also have been very aware that while the champions have been irresistable throughout the group stages, one can never write off Mount Sion in knockout competition.

There was a sizable crowd in the Keane's Road venue for this encounter with the weather making it a good

Waterford record second win of the week

Having beaten Wexford two nil the previous Teusday, the Waterford Under 15 side defeated Kerry at a rain soaked RSC on Saturday afternoon and they remain very much on track to cement a play-off position in what is the first season of this competition. Francis Rockett's outfit have lots of exciting players and they were determined to beat their opponents because the team from the Kingdom came out on top in Mount Hawk Park some weeks ago.

Waterford took the lead with the first attack of the game after 5 minutes. Abel Alabi took out the Kerry defence with a peach of a ball and Robert Bulmer displayed wonderful composure and he found the far corner of the net from just inside the left side of the penalty area. The Kerry side equalised two minutes

    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
