Well done to the U6 hurling team who won all their matches in a blitz in Knockainy, and the u14 girls winning the Charleville inter club tournament. Hard luck to the u12 boys who lost the hurling county final to Feohanagh Castlemahon.

Kildimo Pallaskenry

We are two points better off than at the same stage last year, but have four tough games to come following the summer break. level the game. It was hugely disappointing for our lads to drop a point in that manner, but we remain ahead of the pack, level on five points with Bruff after three games. Wed like to wish the very best of luck to the considerable number of Kildimo/Pallaskenry players involved with various county setups and also to a number of injured players, that they will be back in fighting fitness by the time Championship resumes!

Last year, we were desperately disappointed to lose to eventual champions Garryspillane in a county semi-final. This is now our first ever appearance in a Premier Intermediate Hurling Final, and we hope to keep our good records in finals going! Two years ago, in our first ever appearance in an Intermediate Hurling Final, we defeated Glenroe by 10 points and won promotion to the Premier Intermediate grade. But the hurt and disappointment of that defeat has driven the team on this year; the team have learned from that defeat and grown stronger as a result!

They managed to make life a lot more difficult for our forwards while setting up plenty of attacks for their forwards. Although Blackrock would again land four scores in a row to cut the deficit to just four points again; considering the amount of attacks and possession they had, it was a real credit to our backs. This is where our backs really earned their corn; the first half was a game for forwards, the second half was one for backs and they really showed their worth. Bob McKeogh was similar on the wing, while Luke OKeeffe fought tooth and nail for every ball that came his way. Lorcan OLeary had an absolute stormer of a second half at centre-back, constantly emerging with ball. It was our opponents, desperate to get a result to secure their Premier Intermediate status for next season, who came flying out of the blocks and laid down a marker early in the second half. If the first half was free-flowing attacking hurling, the second half was a real dogged affair.

Latest Insight

When Peter Nash picked out Ruair Maher in space around the middle of the field, Ruair opened the shoulders to land a great score. Kyle powered past his marker and lashed the ball past the helpless goalkeeper. Adam Butler then landed a free for us, our only score from a placed ball in what was a superb first half of hurling. We continued our whirlwind start over the next ten minutes, as we simply blew our opponents away with clever movement, strong running and excellent scoretaking. Ruairi then replicated his first point with another similar strike from way out the field before we raised our second green flag of the half. This gave us a 9-point lead, Blackrock having landed a solitary free. After starting the attack, Barry drifted into space in behind, he was picked out cleverly by Ruair Maher; Barry put the head down and rifled the ball into the back of the net, his 4th goal of the Championship campaign! This it was our other county player, Kyle Hayes, who saw the bit of space in front of him. Kyle Hayes was next to get in on the act, taking his man on and popping the ball over the bar from the left wing. We flew out of the traps, laying down a marker right from the off and Barry OConnell had a goal right from the throw-in. Then great work rate from Adam Butler saw him flick the ball away from the defender to Jack OKeeffe, who cleverly recycled the ball outside to Can Hayes for him to fire the ball over the bar.

It looked like those two points would halt Blackrocks momentum but credit to them, they never panicked. Time was running out but they hit a point from play and then another free to bring them back to within two points as we entered injury time. We did have chances of our own to open up a two-point lead but were unfortunate to see one go wide, another to drop short and even a goal chance in a schemozzle around the edge of the square, but the ball just wouldnt go in! On the stroke of sixty minutes, they landed a free to leave just one point between the teams to give the spectators a dramatic finale. Another long-range free closed the gap again, and they dug deep, crowding out our half-forwards and midfield, and began to work the opportunities to claw the gap back.

The 1940s was the last time a side from the parish competed at senior level, which is much too long for a proud club. Kildimo and Pallaskenry have been joined at adult level since 2012, officially amalgamating in 2016, and we have come such a long way in that time! It is a huge opportunity for the club to achieve senior status with such a talented crop of players available!

We did what we had to do in terms of securing a large enough margin victory to be the team with the highest score difference but results elsewhere saw us slip to second in the table as it came down to head-to-head. But the hard work has been done, the semi-final was the true aim and that has been achieved. In the final game of the group stage of the Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship, we rattled in four goals against Blackrock and secured a well-deserved 12-point victory! It was nice to finish the group stage off with a victory to leave us full of confidence heading into the semi-final and it was a good performance, particularly a storming first half. PREMIER INTERMEDIATE HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 4-16 Blackrock 0-16.

BLACKROCK GAA CLUB NOTES

Kyle caused absolute havoc in the Blackrock defence over the next few minutes as he fired over three points on the trot; his pace, power and physicality impossible to handle. It had taken Blackrock a while to settle, but over the next few minutes, they would let us know that we were in a real game and they landed the next few scores to reel in the deficit bit. Kyle then turned creator and his pass across the field found his All-Ireland-winning teammate, Barry OConnell, and Barry made no mistake either to give us a 10-point advantage. There was just the two goals between us again when Kyle Hayes did brilliantly to win a puckout, he was able to pop the pass to Ruair Maher and with the form he was in, he made no mistake, firing over his third point of the half. The first of the trio was an absolute monster score from way out on the left touchline while on the run. He then linked up well with Conor Staff, came through the centre and popped it over the bar before great work from Keel Moloney set him up for another point.
