East Intermediate Football Championship
De La Salle 1-9 Kill 1-4
Our intermediate footballers ensured qualification for the semi final of the championship with a win over Kill in Dunhill last Wednesday. This was a patchy performance by our lads in which we mixed some good football with some not so good but we always looked the likelier winners even though Kill never gave up and fought to the end. It has to be said that our backs as a unit produced a fine performance throughout but we will need to be more direct in attack if we are to progress in this championship
With three of our forwards from the last game, Colm Morris, Lee Hayes and Martin Sheehan out of action it was a game that saw the return to the team of Dean Twomey from the intercounty scene and Ian Cantwell from a second serious injury and both players pointed within the first ten minutes. Two further points from Mitchell Casey helped us to a 0-4 to 0-1 lead after twenty one minutes. Two minutes later Chris Sheehan made a run up the right wing and found Kenneth Byrne who held up the ball intelligently before finding David Kennedy with a superb pass and David crashed the ball to the net for an excellent goal. Kill replied with a point and we led 1-4 to 0-2 at the break.
The second half began with an exchange of points involving Mitchell Casey but then a further point for Kill in the sixth minute reduced the margin to four points. There was no further scoring until the 20th minute when Kenneth Byrne pointed but before that Kevin Williams pulled off a fine save and we missed a few point chances. We increased our lead to six when Peter O'Hagan set up Keith Cooney for a point and the game looked safe when Mitchell Casey pointed a free after a foul on John Kinsella. However, Kill rallied and goaled in the 29th minute but we came back and good work from John Kinsella and Mitchell Casey set up the outstanding Oran Keevers for the last point of the game.
U15 Eastern Hurling Championship Semi Final
Passage 3-15 De La Salle 1-11
The U15 hurlers completed their final league fixture with a 1.17 to 3.5 victory against Tramore and in doing so qualified for the Eastern semi final against Passage.
The team fielded without several regulars who were away on vacation. Despite this fact the score was level with 10 minutes remaining at which stage we conceeded two goals within a minute and this put paid to our chances. Best on the day were Evan Whelan who got 3 points from midfield and Michael Costigan who bagged 1-4.
Congratulations to Kevin Moran who had a busy week picking up the Opel sponsored GAA/GPA National player of the month for July and locally The Granville Hotel monthly GAA award for July also. Two well deserved awards and recognition for his excellent displays.

Under 15 Championship
Our lads qualified for the Eastern Semi-Final, which was played last Saturday afternoon in Dunhill against Ballyduff Lower. We had a good few on holidays and some of our younger players were given their opportunity. They didn't disappoint and the lads were just unlucky to lose out by the narrowest of margins at the end of the game. Final score Mount Sion 4-3 to Ballyduff Lower 1-13. Best of luck to them in the final.

The Under 14s played at home to Lismore last Monday night. Our young side put in a good battling performance on the night to the championship favourites. Hard luck lads. Final score Mount Sion 3-3 to Lismore 3-14.

Google AlertWhen a company which has it's European Headquarters here in Ireland is called 'evil' and 'immoral' by M.P.s in The House of Commons you tend to sit up and take notice. The particular company that was being referred to was Google and the reason it had enraged M.P.s in London was because even though it has a big operation there and conducts a lot of business there it pays no corporate tax.
