Under 14 League Final

Dicksboro 2-10 O'Loughlin Gaels 2-4

Congratulations to our under 14 panel who have added the Roinn 'A' League title to their collection of trophies this year. They have already been crowned County Champions at hurling and football, something last achieved by a 'Boro team in 2006. O'Loughlins had won the toss for venue and so the game was played in a sunny but cold St. John's Pk. We had the advantage of a strong win in the first half but the cold must have been effecting us as we were not performing on all four cylinders and only managed to be drawing at halftime. That said, of O'Loughlins four scores in the half, two of them(points) were scored in the first four minutes and the other two (goals) were scored in the last five minutes of the half. HT Dicksboro 1-5 O'Loughlin Gaels 2-2.

Nothing but a complete team performance was required in the second half as we now played against the strong wind and that is exactly what we got as we knuckled down to our task and started playing much better hurling. Adding 1-3 without reply in the first twelve minutes, we had the Gaels on the back foot but a finish from them like in the first half was always possible but did not materialise as this 'Boro team both defended and attacked heroically, playing good hurling right to the final whistle.

Panel: Gavin Byrne, Eoghan Moylan, Cian Butler, David Campion, Liam Kennedy, Evan Carroll, Johnny Manogue, Chris Kavanagh, Alan Corcoran, Mark Nolan, Óisin Gough, Brian Cleere, Joe Sheehan, Edward Moylan, Sean Boyd, Colin Dempsey, Liam Brennan Smyth, Cillian Timmons, Harry Duggan, Liam Stynes, TJ Stynes, Gavin Walsh, Stephen Cass, James Griffin, Jack Connolly, Tadhg Butler, David Ryan, Conor O'Mahony.

Under 14 Roinn 'A' County Final Replay

Dicksboro 2-12 O'Loughlin Gaels 0-10

This Roinn ‘A’ Under 14 County Final replay was played in splendid conditions in immaculately turned out Thomastown today in front of a large attendance. Dicksboro were totally in charge in the first half, notching up 1-2 in the first four minutes which would have settled them down nicely. O’Loughlins first score, a point, came from a long range free on the sixth minute and they were unable to add to this until the twenty seventh minute with another pointed free. Dicksboro, meanwhile, were consistently adding to their good start with a further goal and five points before the interval. HT Dicksboro 2-7 O’Loughlin Gaels 0-2. O’Loughlins came out in the second half determined to make a game of it, driving low balls in to the ‘Boro square in the hope of scoring a goal. The goal did not come, due to some sterling ‘Boro defending and brave goalkeeping. O’Loughlins kept to their task and continued attacking and the ‘Boro were for a time on the back foot as the Gaels kept putting points on the board. For this game to really spark into life, it needed an O’Loughlins goal but as this did not come, the ‘Boro were able to maintain their commanding position to finish deserving County Champions on a final scoreline of Dicksboro 2-12 O’Loughlin Gaels 0-10.

Under 14 Roinn 'A' County Final 2012

Dicksboro 2-9 O'Loughlin Gaels 1-12

Dicksboro and O’Loughlin Gaels under 14’s have it all to do again after playing out a draw game in the County Championship Final Nowlan Pk. The sides were also level after fourteen minutes of the first half at 0-3 each, when the ‘Boro had a very good period, adding 1-3 to their tally in four minutes and looked at that stage like they were going to pull away. A pointed free from O’Loughlins allowed them to settle again and before the half-time whistle there was a scary moment in the ‘Boro square when the sliothar travelled all along the ‘Boro goal-line and it only looked like it needed the wind to change a little to make it cross the line. Thankfully it didn’t. HT Dicksboro 1-6 O’Loughlin Gaels 0-6, five of the O’Loughlin points coming from placed balls. The start of the second half was frantic stuff, O’Loughlins scoring a goal within a minute and adding a point two minutes later to take the lead. The tide turned back the ‘Boro’s way on the fourth minute when we regained the lead with a goal. Points were exchanged and O’Loughlins were never too far behind us, drawing level again after twenty eight minutes. In the last few minutes, it was the ‘Boro who had the better chances, but unfortunately these not converted. Panel: Gavin Byrne, Eoghan Moylan, Cian Butler, David Ryan, Justin Cahill, Evan Carroll, Johnny Manogue, Chris Kavanagh, Liam Kennedy, Joe Sheehan, Oisin Gough, Alan Corcoran, Brian Cleere, Edward Moylan, Sean Boyd, Colin Dempsey, Jack Condren, Mark Nolan, Harry Duggan, Cillian Timmons, David Campion, Conor O’Mahony, Kieran Galvin, David Delahunty, Sean Foley, Stephen Cass, TJ Stynes, Liam Brennan Smyth, Liam Stynes, Jack Connolly, Gavin Walsh, James Griffin, Tadhg Butler, Charlie Buckley.

Under 14 Roinn 'C' Shield Final

Dicksboro 4-8 O'Loughlin Gaels 5-11

It turned out to be a bad week on the hurling field for our Roinn 'C' under 14 team as we exited the championship a few days ago and lost this League Shield Final against O'Loughlin Gaels. O'Loughlins were making most of the running in the first half and were up by 1-5 to 0-3 after twenty seven minutes but a late rally from the 'Boro boys brought the HT score to Dicksboro 1-4 O'Loughlin Gaels 1-5.

O'Loughlin's maintained the pressure at the start of the second half, adding 1-1 within five minutes and the 'Boro always seemed to be playing catch-up. Despite this, we came back at O'Loughlins and after thirteen minutes there was only a point in it again in the Gaels favour, 2-6 to 2-7. O'Loughlins replied with 1-3 without reply in a deadly three minute spell for the 'Boro before we added two points to our score. This was, however, soon cancelled out with another Gaels goal. O'Loughlin's were now in a commanding position going into the last ten minutes of the match but they were knocked from their comfort zone when the 'Boro netted twice on the twenty fifth and sixth minute to make it a two point margin between the sides. It remained like this up to the twenty ninth minute when O'Loughlin's found the 'Boro net again and another point within a minute sealed our faith.

Panel: Eamonn Morrissey, Tadhg Butler, Kieran Galvin, Sean Foley, TJ Stynes, David Ryan, David Campion, Jack Condren, Liam Stynes, David Delehunty, Eoghan Moylan, Liam Brennan Smyth, Gavin Walsh, Brian Cleere, Charlie Buckley, James Griffin, Padraic Moylan, Evan Clarke, Sam Kenny.

Under 14 Roinn 'C' Championship

Dicksboro exited the Roinn C U14 Championship last night at the first hurdle as they succumbed to a vastly superior Emeralds (Urlingford) on a 2-18 to 2-03 scoreline in well presented Freshford GAA grounds. Despite the final scoreline this bunch of Boro hurlers gave their all as they battled until the end against a team that were definitely punching below their weight, who had competed in Roinn B in the U14 League earlier this summer. Dicksboro opened against the breeze and were behind 1-8 to 0-2 at the break. In the second half the superiority of the Emeralds came to the fore to run out comfortable winners. Great credit to this bunch of U14s containing a good number of sprightly U12s who never gave up against overwhelming odds and to their mentors Michael Tyrell, Brian Tyrell & Tony Butler - their day will come. At the time of writing this Dicksboro outfit will contest the Roinn C Shield League Final v O Loughlin Gaels at 3.30pm this Saturday in St. Johns Park.

Na Piarsaigh Under 14 Hurling Tournament

A group of our Under 14 panel had an early start this morning to travel to Na Piarsaigh's grounds in Cork for a blitz, in what was a lovely day for hurling. Abbeyside from Dungarvan were our first opponents in what turned out to be a very tight match which we lost despite putting them under intense pressure for the last few minutes of the game. Killeagh from Cork were next up and they managed to get an early lead on us but two quick 'Boro goals brought us back into the match but Killeagh still hung on for a win. Our hosts, Na Piarsigh, were too strong for us, pulling away in the second half after we lead at halftime.

We then went into the Shield Final against Abbeyside and found ourselves eight points down at the end of the first half, after playing against the wind. A brave performance in the second half brought us back and we went in front with only minutes left on the clock. However, two goals in the dying minutes sealed a victory for the Waterford boys. Thank you to Na Piarsaigh Club for the invitation and hospitality.

Panel: Liam Kennedy, Conor O'Mahony, Brian Cleere, Gavin Byrne, Johnny Minogue, Stephen Cass, David Campion, TJ Stynes, Jack Condren, David Ryan, Cillian Timmons, Jack Connolly, Gavin Walsh, Sean Boyd, Kieran Galvin.

Under 14 Roinn 'A' Hurling League

Dicksboro 3-10 O'Loughlin Gaels 0-13

The first half of this encounter was played in ideal conditions for hurling this evening St. Johns Pk. The game was evenly matched until about halfway into the first half when we found the O'Loughlin net and another goal soon after put us well on the way, giving us a commanding enough lead at HT Dicksboro 2-6 O'Loughlin Gaels 0-5. However, conditions deteriorated in the second half and the game turned into a more dogged affair. The 'Boro were always ahead but O'Loughlins never gave up and if not for some very good saves by our keeper near the end, the result may well have been far closer. FT Dicksboro 3-10 O'Loughlin Gaels 0-13.

Panel: Colin Dempsey, David Ryan, Cian Butler, Eoghan Moylan, Evan Carroll, Chris Kavanagh, Justin Cahill, Liam Kennedy, Joe Sheehan, Oisin Gough, Sean Boyd, Edward Moylan, Brian Cleere, Johnny Manogue, Alan Corcoran, David Campion, Jack Condren, Cillian Timmons, Mark Nolan, Conor O'Mahony, David Delahunty, Jack Connolly, Sean Foley, Liam Stynes, TJ Stynes, Kieran Galvin.


Féile Peil na nÓg

Day 1: Our Féile panel arrived in Moate today, 22nd June, to a warm reception from our hosts. We quickly had to settle down to the business at hand and started our first game against a diagonal wind which would have favoured our hosts more than us. Direct running football, gave us the edge and we were in front at the end of the first fifteen minute half by 2-3 to 0-1. The second half was not as fluid as we emptied the bench and the game finished Dicksboro 2-4 Moate 0-2. Moate GAA Club then provided us with a meal of curry and chips before we set off to the Féile Parade in Portlaoise. Arriving in O'Moore Park at 6pm, we eventually finished the parade at 8.45pm before returning to Moate and linking up with the host families. Hopefully the boys will have a good nights sleep as they will have an early start tomorrow(Saturday) as they travel to Cloghan to play St. Rynaghs at 10am and then Lancashire at 12.30pm.

Day One Photos

Day 2: It was an early start today, Saturday, to make the sixteen mile journey to Cloghan, home of St. Rynagh's for our last two group matches, the first of which started at 10am against St. Rynagh's. This turned out to be the most competitive that we had to play. Rynagh's were quickest off the mark with three points on the scoreboard within six minutes before the 'Boro got a lucky break when a sideline kick went straight to the net.. On twelve minutes, St. Rynagh's were awarded a free which was well struck and dipped just below the crossbar for a goal. Just at halftime, on the fifteenth minute, the 'Boro again brought the game back to parity with an excellent goal. HT Dicksboro 2-0 St. Rynagh's 1-3.

St. Rynagh's started the second half even better than the first, raising the white flag three times in two minutes and they looked to be well on top. But 'Boro boys are not that easily beaten and the comeback started on the seventh minute with a point. We held St. Rynagh's scoreless for the remainder of the half, while at the same time adding two more points to draw the game, Dicksboro 2-3 St. Rynagh's 1-6.

We were now level with St. Rynagh's on points in the group but we also needed to put up a very big score against Lancashire in our last game to make up score difference. When this did not seem likely, the management emptied the bench, giving every panel member a run and we still managed to win. Dicksboro 2-6 Lancashire 2-1.

We can justifiably feel unfortunate to go out of this Féile after winning two and drawing one of our three group games but sport can be cruel. The boys can now relax and they travelled to O'Moore Pk to watch the Kilkenny/Dublin Championship game, following which they will return to Moate before travelling the short distance to Rosemount GAA Club to dance the night away at a disco.

Under 14 Roinn 'A' Hurling League

Dicksboro 2-5 James Stephens 3-10

Dicksboro's under 14's played James Stephens today in Palmerstown in what was a good game of hurling. We got off the mark first, scoring from a free and we scored another before the Village registered their first point. The teams were level shortly after that but our opponents were to get a goal and went in at HT leading 1-3 to 0-3.

The 'Boro came out of the traps quicker in the second half scoring 1-1 to James Stephen's 0-1 in the first ten minutes. Then the Village seemed to get theupper hand scoring 2-7 to the 'Boro's 1-1 in the remaining twenty minutes of the match.

Panel: Colin Dempsey, David Ryan, Evan Carroll, David Campion, Eoghan Moylan, Cian Butler, Johnny Minogue, Liam Kennedy, Chris Kavanagh(Capt), Conor O'Mahony, Alan Corcoran, Joe Sheehan, Mark Nolan, Oisin Gough, Sean Boyd, Kieran Galvin, Tadhg Butler.

Under 14 Football County Final

Dicksboro 1-8 Thomastown 1-3

Congratulations to our Under 14 Roinn 'A' Football team who won our first bit of silverware of the year by defeating Thomastown in the Duggan Steel County Final. After the disappointment of exiting from the hurling Feile at the weekend, this was just the tonic these boys needed. Apart from being crowned County Champions, they will now go on to represent the club and county at the national Feile competition. Thomastown were a well schooled outfit and the game was tight right up until the end. The 'Boro were leading at HT by 0-6 to 1-1 and perhaps could have been up a few more points if we took our chances. Eight minutes into the second half, with the sides level at 0-6 to 1-3, the 'Boro hit the Thomastown post and it looked like one of those days when things would just not go our way. Both of these teams were evenly matched and every player fought his own corner. A two point lead is a dangerous lead and that is what we had as we hit the twenty eight minute mark, but we were then awarded a penalty which was drilled home, leaving the Thomastown keeper with no chance. A well deserved win for the 'Boro lads.

Paddy Grace Under 14 Hurling Feile

A large contingent of 'Boro under 14's travelled to Ballyhale this morning for their group stage games in the Paddy Grace Under 14 Hurling Feile, arriving at 9.30am for our first game against Bennettsbridge at 10am. Firstly, let us thank the Ballyhale Shamrocks club for the way their fields were turned out and the hospitality they showed. The cuppa was very welcome on what was not a very warm day. The game against Bennettsbridge was one sided and to all intents and purposes over at halftime when we were leading by 5-11 to 0-1. This gave us an opportunity to use the panel and still run out easy winners 6-13 to 0-6. The impressive part of this score was that all of the 'Boro scores, apart from one point, came from play.

Next up was Mooncoin, who also succumbed to the 'Boro boys rock solid defence and direct scoring and a HT score of 3-9 to 1-1 set us up for another good victory. FT Dicksboro 3-13 Mooncoin 1-2. Our last game was against Slieverue in a must win match as Slieverue had beated Bennettsbridge and if they beat us, they would go through. Slieverue proved to be our toughest game when they made a real match of it in the early stages but again our superior strenght came through and the game finished at Dicksboro 3-9 Slieverue 0-1 and again all but one of our points came from play.

We will now play James Stephens in the semi final at 5pm today in Clara.

Dicksboro vs James Stephens:

You simply could not write the script for this one, a game between two evenly matched sides with the added edge of local city rivalry. The 'Boro lads had a good start and were looking good when the Village were awarded a penalty which was converted to maximum points. We replied with a point to make it level and then we had a nervous moment when the sliothar was driven against the 'Boro post, only to cross along the goal line before it was knocked out for a 65 which was converted. The final score of the first half came from the 'Boro to leave the sides level at HT Dicksboro 0-4 James Stephens 1-1.

The 'Boro got the best possible start to the second half with an excellent goal early on and this was soon followed by a further point to give us a four point lead. Not to be outdone, the Village then scored 1-2 without reply. It seemed that nothing would separate these two teams and that proved to be the case as the match ended Dicksboro 1-6 James Stephens 2-3 after normal time. After playing three games this morning compared to the Village's one, it was inevitable that they would be the fresher team as we headed into extra time. We managed to stay with them until the end of the first five minutes of ET which again ended level at Dicksboro 1-7 James Stephens 2-4. Our tired legs were now really starting to tell as the Village boys were a half yard ahead of us. After just short of three hours of hurling and giving their all we eventually succumbed. These 'Boro boys put in a heroic performance and can be very proud of their efforts. Ft Dicksboro 1-7 James Stephens 2-6. The Management team would like to thank hurley/water carriers, first aid and all who helped out for their assistance in the smooth running of the day.

Under 14 Roinn 'A' Hurling League

Dicksboro 2-8 Danesfort 0-7

Our under 14's played in their second game of the league against Danesfort this evening in Palmerstown. Danesfort started the quicker with two points on the board before the 'Boro recorded their first score which was a gaol. After that it was an even match with just one point separating the teams at halftime. Dicksboro started the second half better and were two points to the good but Danesfort were still pushing strongly. We then got a second goal and from then on we were in control of the match.

Dicksboro 4-7 James Stephens 1-2

Our under 14 Roinn 'A' team marched into the Football Championship Final thanks to a very convincing win over city rivals James Stephens. The scoreline is a true reflection of the match, the Village goal only coming in the last five minutes of play.

Thomastown will provide the opposition in the final, following their equally convincing win over Danesfort.

Under 14 Roinn 'A' Football

Dicksboro 4-6 O'Loughlin Gaels 2-3

We last met O'Loughlin Gaels in a League game on 10th March and lost by three points and so todays game in the Championship was a chance for revenge. With less than a minute on the clock we set out our stall with a fine goal. Scores were not coming freely for either team and we had to wait a further thirteen minutes before the next score, which was a point from the 'Boro. O'Loughlin's only score of the half came on the sixteenth minute when they raised the white flag. Another point, which was very nearly a goal followed for the 'Boro and a late goal gave us a commanding HT lead of 2-2 to 0-1.

Like the first half, the 'Boro were on the scoreboard in less than a minute with another point but this was very quickly followed by an O'Loughlins goal. The first fifteen minutes saw a lot more scoring action, O'Loughlins bringing their deficit back to four points at 3-4 to 2-3. The wind was knocked out of their sails a minute later when a goal followed for the 'Boro after a blistering solo run from midfield ended with the ball being smashed to the net. O'Loughin's did not score after that. FT Dicksboro 4-6 O'Loughlin Gaels 2-3

Under 14 Roinn 'C Football Championship

Dicksboro’s Under 14 Roinn ‘C’ team put in a herculean performance against Kilmoganny in their first round football championship game in Palmerstown last Sunday. When you consider that half of the ‘Boro team were drawn from the under 12 panel, it would be easy to think that they would be brushed aside by the opposition, but this was not the case, even though we did eventually succumb to the more physically strong team. A ‘Boro shot on goal in the first half that rattled the crossbar, could, on a different day have been a goal and put us level at half time but as it turned out we were behind by three points at the end of the half, 2-1 to 2-4. The second half was equally as tight with the ‘Boro again striking the crossbar, but we just never managed to get the upper hand on our opponents. FT Dicksboro 2-3 Kilmoganny 2-7. Panel: Mark Kenny, Conor O’Mahony, Liam Stynes, Sean Foley, Tommy Farrell, Kieran Galvin, TJ Stynes, Mark Nolan, Eoghan Moylan, Liam Brennan Smyth, Cillian Timmons, Gavin Walsh, Evan Clarke, Gavin Walsh, Jack Connolly, Darragh Maher, Padraic Moylan.

Duggan Steel Under 14 Roinn C Football

Dicksboro's Roinn 'C' team put in a very good first half performance against Young Irelands today, but despite being on top they failed to convert their dominance to scores, driving a number of wides and that, coupled with a good opposition defence, meant that we were only leading at half time by 1-2 to 1-0. The second half was a different story with Young Irelands coming more and more into the game, scoring 3-1 before we got our first score(a point). Another goal followed for Young Irelands which sealed the game and a late flourish from the 'Boro left the full time score Dicksboro 2-4 Young Irelands 5-1. Our next match is against James Stephens.

Panel: David Campion, Liam Brennan Smyth, Brian Cleere, Mark Nolan, Jack Connolly, Tadhg Butler, Cillian Timmons, Kieran Galvin, Conor O'Mahony, Eoghan Moylan, Gavin Byrne, James Griffin, TJ Stynes, Liam Stynes and Eamonn Morrissey.

Duggan Steel Under 14 Roinn A Football

Both of our Under 14 football teams were out again today. Our Roinn A team remain on top of their league with mamimum points following a convincing win over Conahy Shamrocks this morning. Our Roinn C side however did not fare as well as they went down, despite a spirited showing, against top of the table, Tullaroan.

Duggan Steel Under 14 Roinn A Football

Dicksboro 1-7 Thomastown 1-4

Our second Roinn A Football League game in four days was held this morning in Thomastown. The local team had the better of the starts, going three points up. The 'Boro side composed themselves and started to come back into the game and were only trailing by a point at halftime. The second half saw the 'Boro playing the better football as our back lines started to dominate and a brief rally by Thomastown that brought the game back to a single point was soon halted as our boys pressed on to win convincing winners.

Our next match in this league is currently set for Sunday 19th Feb at 11.30am in Palmerstown against Conahy Shamrocks.

Duggan Steel Under 14 Roinn C Football

Following our recent drawn game against Kilmoganny our Roinn C team travelled to Bennettsbridge this evening to play the local team. Dicksboro had the better start, scoring first after seven minutes and playing well but the Bennettsbridge team came more and more into the game and made their scoring opportunities count. Their physical strength was showing and by half time we were trailing 0-1 to 4-4.

It would have been easy and understandable for this young 'Boro team to hang their heads and be on the receiving end of a drumming but that was not to be the case as they kept persevering, notching up 3-2 in the second half and continued to fight for every ball. Despite losing, they deserve full credit for their fighting spirit. FT Dicksboro 3-3 Bennettsbridge 6-7.


9th February 2012

Duggan Steel Under 14 Roinn A Football

A 6.30pm start to this first round game in the Roinn A Football League game against James Stephens, held in Palmerstown, meant that it was to be held under floodlights. Within two minutes of the start, the 'Boro were up by a goal after a Village player played a ball that was probably going wide, and the 'Boro forwards, not slow to take their chances, pounced and slipped the ball into the net. The first half went all our way as our first four scores, scored on second, sixth, thirteenth and seventeenth minutes were all goals. Two further points brought the half time score up to Dicksboro 4-2 James Stephens 0-0 in a half that the 'Boro totally dominated.

Three minutes into the second half a well struck shot from twenty five yards bulged the corner of the Village net and it appeared unlikely from that moment that we were going to lose this one. Both teams used up their panels for the remainder of what was a very good display from this young 'Boro team.

Duggan Steel Under 14 Roinn C Football

The U14 football season kicked off with a fantastic show of enthusiasm & determination by the Dicksboro B`s in the Roinn C League v. Kilmoganny in Palmerstown on Sunday morning. Conceding two early goals ,one from a penalty, the Boro boys responded with a good goal. Soon after, the Kilmoganny lads were awarded a second penalty which was duly dispatched to the net. Dicksboro`s remaining score of the half was a point before conceding a fourth goal before half time to trail 4.00 to 1.01. Inspirational words by mentors, John Timmons, Declan Gough, Michael Tyrrell & Tony Butler during the interval, reaped a strong reward as the Boro boys totally dominated the second half but found scores to find. In a gritty determined display of football with all fifteen throwing their bodies on the line, including some sprightly U12s, the Boro boys held their opponents scoreless and struck late goals to draw the game on a 4-0 to 3-03 final scoreline - well done to all.

Team : D. Campion, C.Buckley, K. Galvin, C. O Mahony, L. Stynes, TJ Stynes, G. Walsh, M. Nolan, B. Cleere, E. Moylan (0-01), C. Timmons (2-01), T. Butler, J. Connolly (0-1), G. Byrne, J. Griffin (1-00). Sub P. Moylan.
