Cork in Thurles

On Sunday next in Semple Stadium Thurles the second of the Munster Senior Hurling Semi-Finals will see old adversaries Waterford and Cork lock horns. There is no doubt but the County Tipperary venue has a habit of bringing out the best in both teams and there is no reason to suggest why Sunday next can not once again provide a terrific encounter. This is the opening game in the championship for the Deise who have already seen Cork put reigning champions Tipperary "to the sword" 2-27 to 1-26. The Rebels will be buoyed following this win over their great Munster rivals and also the fact that they defeated Waterford in the Allianz National League 1-21 to 1-13 in Walsh Park back in March although one must say that Waterford did not bring their "A" game on that occasion.

Late Marky Lucas

It is with utter devastation and shock that I discovered that Marky Lucas died on Friday, June 9th. I hesitate to use his surname because Marky was so well-known that this was irrelevant.

As you all know, Marky was a great character and a most obliging referee, helping everyone who asked him.

He had a great knowledge of the local grapevine, so was a source of much information....which he always dispensed with a laugh.

A few years ago we hosted the South Dublin league and one of their officials was a senior referees assessor in Dublin.

He declared that Marky was one of the finest schoolboy referees he had ever seen and that he would love to have him in Dublin.

Marky knew, and was known by, almost everyone in football in Waterford

A star is born as Blues rattle in six

A young player who stepped up from the Under 19 team three weeks ago scored a hat-trick on Friday night last at the Athlone Stadium as Waterford FC defeated a hapless home team who are now managed by Waterford's last boss, Roddy Collins. John Martin who made his debut against Longford Town in the middle of May has burst on to the scene with incredible ease and he scored a hat-trick in this one sided contest and the Waterford fans who made the journey to the midlands went home purring with excitement after watching this bright new youngster. Apart from his goals, his vision and passing were superb and there is no doubt that he is going to be a major figure during the remainder of the campaign. The Blues remain two

Superb ladies win

Pride of place this week goes to the Waterford Ladies Football team who stormed to the Munster Final courtesy of a 3-11 to 1-11 win over a much vaunted and successful Cork outfit. This was a real test for the Deise as Cork have been to the forefront of the Ladies Football game for over a decade and are the reigning Munster and All-Ireland champions. The game got off to a whirlwind start for the home side as Aileen Wall pointed and it was followed by a Roisin Tobin goal all within the opening three minutes. Indeed the goal from the Abbeyside star was a stunner and gave Cork custodian Martina O'Brien little chance. Following a win over Kerry just a couple of weeks ago in the round robin series this was a hugely confident start from the

Blues go two points clear at the top of table

Waterford went into this game one point clear at the top of the table from UCD and two points clear of Cobh Ramblers. Following this game allied to UCD's win over Athlone Town the Blues are now two clear at the summit of the league table. Games between Waterford and Cobh are usually tight and tense affairs and this latest meeting of the teams fell into that category also. The home goalkeeper Paul Hunt was in brilliant form and he was the difference between a victory and a draw. Having said that the hosts could have taken all of the spoils also so this was a point gained for Alan Reynolds and his charges. On Friday next they travel to play an Athlone Town side who are now managed by Roddy

Cork just stays afloat

Cork were the visitors to Fraher Field Dungarvan on Saturday last for what most expected to be a clear cut victory for the Leesiders in the opening round of the Munster Senior Football Championship against a Waterford side short on consistency. The Deise had opened their 2017 Allianz League campaign with a win over London followed by a very impressive victory over Wicklow, in a rain lashed Carriganore, in the second round. Unfortunately what followed was defeat after defeat where the Deise lads could never regain the form of those opening games and finished the league campaign on just four points. That record and the fact that Cork, normally a powerhouse of football. have not been beaten by the Deise for nearly five decades. This convinced pundits and followers alike that it was the proverbial "mountain" to

“Deadly Daly” keeps Waterford on top

Waterford have moved two points clear at the top of the table following this victory at the RSC on Friday night last.

Derek Daly was the goalscoring hero for the second week running. He also netted the winner against Wexford the previous week. This was the third consecutive one nil win for the Blues. UCD were in second place, one point behind Waterford prior to last weekend but they lost at home to Cobh Ramblers and as a result the Co Cork club have now taken over second position and on Saturday next Waterford will travel to Cobh for what will be a top of the table clash in every sense of the word. Cobh Ramblers are managed by Stephen Henderson who is a former Waterford manager and that fact will add spice to the encounter.

    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 …
