Thomas Barr at World Championships

The big athletic event of the year worldwide this year begins this Friday in London. Its the World Track and Field Championships and there will be a Waterford interest with Olympian Thomas Barr Ferrybank competing in the 400 metres hurdles. This will be his second appearance at these Championships, in 2015 in Beijing he reached the semi final and will be aiming to go one better in London next week. His participation begins on Sunday next at 11.05 am in the heats of his event and his preparation is practically a carbon copy of last year for the Olympics. He has had very few races due to a hamstring problem this time round but in the National Championships on Sunday week last when he was back in action after a five weeks break he seemed in

Waterford FC 3 - Athlone Town 1

After ten years of striving to get out of the First Division the long wait would appear to be coming to an end following this result at the RSC on Friday night.

Waterford FC followed up their thrilling win against Cobh Ramblers at the same venue the previous Friday by defeating an Athlone side who set their stall out to make life difficult for the Blues by playing two banks of four and deploying two wide players. The last time the two sides met, Waterford won 6-1 and the Athlone manager Roddy Collins, who of course in charge of the Blues last season had no intention of being on the receiving end of another hammering on this occasion. Derek Daly scored a wonder goal for the home side just after the half hour mark and

Waterford win, but at a cost

The Waterford Senior Hurlers came through a tough encounter against Wexford at the newly refurished Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Sunday last to seal their place in the All-Ireland semi-final.

The 1-23 to 1-19 win, which probably flattered the Slaneysiders a little, was achieved before over thirty one thousand patrons and added to the crowd of just under that on Saturday the whole weekend proved a huge success for the Association and in particular the Cork GAA Board who have shown real initiative with this new development.

The Deise went into this game as the warmest of favourites but Wexford under the stewardship of the wily Davy Fitzgerald, former Waterfords bainisteoir, were coming in perhaps a "little under the radar" following a win over Kilkenny and a huge loss to Galway. With the traffic restrictions which had been

Four All Ireland Senior titles won by Waterford athletes

In Morton Stadium in Santry in Dublin last Saturday and Sunday Waterford athletes kept up their amazing winning sequence at Ireland's principal Athletic fixture the All Ireland Senior Track and Field Championships and came home with four individual gold medals-the same as last year- one silver and three bronze with three athletes retaining their titles. Year in year out Waterford athletes have won numerous Irish titles both on the track and in the field events at these Championships..

Three titles retained

Olympian Thomas Barr Ferrybank back in action after a few weeks out due to a slight injury won his semi final of the 400 metres hurdles on Saturday with ease in 51.33 and then on Sunday was well in control as he won the final in 49.79 seconds and this was his seventh

SSE Airtricity League First Division

Waterford FC 4 - Cobh Ramblers 0

Waterford FC have moved within touching distance of the SSE Airtricity League First Division title after a dominant second half display yielded four goals and three points against second placed Cobh Ramblers played in front of an attendance of 1852 at the RSC on Friday night last.

The Blues did have a goal ruled out amid controversy on 15 minutes when David McDaid was fouled in the area and after midfielder John Martin scored from the breaking ball, somehow referee Damien MacGraith judged that the striker had dived in the area and awarded a free kick to the visitors before cautioning McDaid.

In a first half of limited chances that saw the Blues dominate, they didn't trouble Ramblers keeper Paul Hunt before creating a chance of their own on 38 minutes when

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

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.

    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 …
