Vital points dropped

waterford united 0 - 0 cobh ramblers

Waterford United and Cobh Ramblers played out a dreadful game at the RSC on Friday night and not for the first time this season questions were asked about the ability of the Blues to launch a sustained promotion push this season. On this evidence they will not score the 60 plus goals to win the league, pure and simple. The fact that the visitors had central defender Brian Fitzgerald sent off after only 33 minutes added to the frustration of the home supporters.

Paul O'Brien made two changes from the Waterford side that beat Salthill Devon last weekend with Kevin O'Connor and Jack Doherty coming into the line-up, but there was little to cheer for the home fans in an opening half that was bereft of ant real creativity and severely lacked goal

North Tipp Sprint

Eight WTC members travelled to Nenagh on Saturday to compete in Nenagh Triathlon Clubs annual sprint distance triathlon. It was a pool based triathlon with some 250 competitors completing 30 lengths of the pool (750m), a 20km bike out to Toomevara and back, finished off with a 5km run on undulating country roads. It was a National Series race with valuable points on offer and a top class field chasing them.

The rain stayed away and the sun even shone sporadically. First three club members home were Shane Scadding in 1:04:24, finishing in 11th place overall winning his age group, Eoin Lyons finished 13th in 1:05:01 and David Devine finished 21st in 1:07:34. Other WTC members to finish a great race include Paul 'Pio' Wyse 1:08:20, who also won his age group, Stephen Walter 1:12:59, Bernard Keane 1:13:56, John

North Tipp Sprint

Section D County Mixed League Final

Dunmore 1 played Lismore in the Section D final in Lady Lane on Thursday 11th April. Dunmore had the better start with Peter Fleming and Katherine McNamara both winning their singles matches. Lismore took the Men's Doubles but Dunmore pairing Aine Morrissey and Jemma Fitzpatrick held on to win the Ladies Doubles in three sets. At this stage the score was 3-1 to Dunmore and we needed to win only one of the three Mixed Doubles to take the title. Unfortunately, the three Lismore mixed pairings proved too strong and Dunmore lost out by the narrowest of margins. Best of luck to Lismore who will now represent Waterford in the Munster Club Championships in UL on Sunday 20th April. Dunmore Team – Anthony Feicks, Peter Fleming, Barry Cantwell (C), Jackie Dunne, Aine Morrissey

Going to the dogs

It will probably be "house full" signs at Kilcohan Greyhound Stadium on Saturday 18th May at 7pm. as supporters of Waterford GAA gather for a fund raising venture in aid of County teams training. Many of the stars of Waterford hurling and football will be in attendance with a real novel event during proceedings which will see players from the two senior teams in opposition. Now that should really carry some intense rivalry and maybe a little cheating from what I hear. With all benefits of the night going directly to the training fund it is the ideal opportunity for young and old to have a good night's entertainment knowing that you are helping the team's prepare for their upcoming campaigns. Admission tickets are E10 with family tickets available E20 which gives admission to two adults and

salthill 1 - 2 waterford united Across the Back by Booter

Despite having to play second fiddle to Salthill Devon for long periods, Waterford United reeled off their second win on the trot when they came back home from Galway with a vital win on Friday night last. The game was poor standard-wise, but a brace of goals from Paudie Quinn made the long journey home a happy one for the loyal band of supporters who made the trip to the west.

The hosts almost took the lead on 18 minutes when Brian Gaffney rose high to meet a corner kick taken by Derek O'Brien but Michael Coady kicked the ball off the line. Waterford took the lead on 21 minutes when Darragh Walshe displayed good footwork before firing in a shot which the Salthill Devon goalkeeper could only parry and when the

late strike nets blues another three points

It took until the third minute of injury time, but Paudie Quinn's second strike of the night at the Drom Soccer Park earned the Blues a priceless second three points in a row, and begins their climb up the table towards the business end. On the back foot for a lot of the second half, United nevertheless kept themselves in the game, and were ready to ruthlessly take the vital opportunity when it presented itself. With confidence slowly growing, another testing tie is in the offing when Cobh Ramblers arrive at the RSC this Friday, and a third win on the spin would surely signal a turnaround of the team's fortunes, and see them re-establish their title challenge. Much rests on this key game on Friday night!

Battle of Marengo impresses at Leopardstown

The powerful combination of Aidan and Joseph O'Brien took centre stage at Leopardstown on Sunday, teaming up to complete a treble that was highlighted by the win of Battle Of Marengo in the Group 3 P. W. McGrath Memorial Ballysax Stakes. The son of Galileo was considered a leading Epsom Derby prospect going into the race and he didn't disappoint, leading over a furlong out and drawing away to score by 1 3/4 lengths. The O'Brien's other stakes success came in the Listed Heritage Stakes, with Declaration Of War stamping himself as a Group 1 prospect by running out the impressive 2 1/2 lengths victor. The O'Brien treble was completed in the concluding Leopardstown Club Members Handicap, with Justification getting up close home to prevail by 3/4-length.

Marshals Goddess Stormed To Victory

Topping the bill last Saturday night was the final of the Alan Walsh and Track Supporters Club sponsored Doctor Morrissey Coursing bred sprint event. After heavy rain conditions on the night were very testing with the going rated . 20 slow for the standard trip races with the sole sprint contest rated sand.

In the sprint decider it was all to play for on the run to the opening turn and while Mr Matt poked his head in front near the first turn it was 2/1 shot Marshals Goddess (Musical Time-Marshals Pearl) who swept into the lead on the wide outside. Drawing clear up the home stretch 'Marshals' went on to account for Ono Society by all of five lengths in 18. 46. The winner is owned by Marie Roche whose late mother and father Ann and

    Celtic BounceThat our economy has steadily been getting better in the last number of years is something that won't be lost on most people. In fact things were so bad for so long at one period that there was no other way but up. Things are getting better but the questions have to be how much better and for whom? That there has been a bounce in our economy was witnessed by the better than average trading figures for the Christmas and New Year period. People did have more money to spend and they went ahe …
