Castletroy College 3-9 DLS Waterford 1-9

Our Harty Cup Hurling team saw off a gallant De La Salle Waterford comeback to secure a six point victory at Cahir on Wednesday. The first score of the game arrived in the 3rd minute when De La Salle scrambled a goal. The teams shared the next four scores before Castletroy drew level in the tenth minute courtesy of a Barry Nash goal. The Castletroy defence were now well on top, with Mark O’Dwyer and David Garry excelling, holding De La Salle scoreless for the rest of the first half as the conditions worsened due to the heavy rain. Castletroy gradually stretched their lead out to four points before an Aaron Kennedy goal in the 27th minute gave the Limerick school a 2-6 to 1-2 interval lead.

De La Salle began the second half in much more determined fashion, hurling with a directness missing in the first half. After opening the scoring with a quick point from play, the Waterford College went on to score the next four points to leave just two between the sides with 20 minutes remaining. Castletroy finally opened their second half account in the 44th minute with a pointed free to stem the tide. Despite the heavy conditions, both sides now threw everything in to the battle for scores in what was a physical but fair contest.


The game was decided in the 51st minute when Castletroy’s Andrew la Touche Cosgrave took on the DLS defence and finished to the net to put his team five points in front. De La Salle tried valiantly to score a goal to get them back in to the game in the closing stages but despite their best efforts, the Castletroy defence held firm to secure a six point win at the final whistle.

 Well Done to the team and the coaches.

Pictured  are some of the first year hockey players who travelled to Crescent College to play in the regional hockey blitz against Laurel Hill Colaiste and Secondary, Crescent and Villiers. Over 200 girls participated on the day. 45 Castletroy players took part and represented their school very well. With nearly 60 1st year girls playing hockey this year, we had enough players to form another panel of 15 players who were brought to Crescent for an afternoon with the 2nd year players to take part in an 8 aside league. Well done to all involved. Our senior and junior teams also played challenge games against Villers on their pitch on the North Circular Rd recently. The North Munster League will start after midterm break for all players. Best of luck to all the players and coaches.

The participating schools included Abbeyfeale, Castletroy College, Ennis Community College, St. Annes Tipperary, Killkee Community College, Coláiste na Trinóide, Doon and Salesians Pallaskenry. This was a fantastic sporting event for all the coaches and players with many of the matches displaying excellent football skills. Each Transition Year student was assigned a job; team assistants, umpires, score runners, referees, photographer, coaches and shop assistances. Thanks to SuperValu in Castletroy who delivered the supplies early on Wednesday morning in time for the mobile shop to begin trading. Both Abbeyfeale teams played each other in the final which was a very close game. The winning team were presented with a cup and medals. Many thanks for all the teams who travelled from all 3 counties. Thank you to all Transition Year Students who volunteered and especially coaches Ms. McGrath and Mr. Hussey who were super organised and guided us for the day. We look forward to the next upcoming blitz!

Munster Schools claim Interpro Title

Congratulations to David Rowsome, Mark O’Mara and Joey Conway who represented Castletroy College on the Munster Schools side who claimed the Interprovincial Championchip in a thrilling victory over Leinster in Cork on Saturday..

To put the achievement into context, 2003 was the last time that Munster won the Schools Interprovincial Series. It’s the first time since 1973 that Munster have won the four-province Schools Interpro Series after Connacht’s absence between 1979 and 2006.

Munster started superbly and played some brilliant rugby to race into a 19-0 half-time lead.
Winger Billy O’Hora scored the Munster try in the right corner after a period of pressure as captain Bill Johnston added the conversion and four penalties.

It was by no means one-way traffic in that first half, however, with some excellent Munster defence keeping the visitors at bay.

Leinster were reduced to 14 men on 51 minutes but back in the game when winger Jordan Larmour touched down with scrum-half David Duggan also crossing to make it 19-10.

Crucially, however, both conversions were missed which allowed Munster some vital breathing space and superb defence helped the hosts see out the game and claim the Interprovincial title.

Eoghan helps to secure gold for Ireland

Congratulations to Eoghan Whittle, fifth year student, who represented Ireland in the Coupe de la Jeunesse rowing regatta which was held in France in early August. Coup de la Jeunesse is a European rowing competition, rowed over 2 kilometers, for rowers under the age of 18.

Eoghan rowed in quadruple sculls with a crew drawn from Shandon, Waterford and Athlone boat clubs. Having qualified from the heats the Irish crew lined up for the final which was a fantastic race to watch. The boys tucked into the middle of the field until the last 250meters of the race when they made a push and stormed through the finishing line in first place a full length ahead of the Spanish crew who in turn were half a length ahead of the Polish crew. Gold medals for the Irish boys.  A brilliant result which was hard earned and well deserved. Congratulations boys and from Castletroy College a big congratulations to Eoghan.
