Championship v Bishopstown in Pairc Ui Caoimh on Sunday 6th October 2013
Bishopstown 3-17  Carrigtwohill 4-12  ( after extra time )

Carrigtwohill’s championship ambitions were shattered by Bishopstown at Pairc Ui Caoimh on Sunday after coming up just short in a gallant normal time fight back and a titanic extra time struggle. Carrig will rue their early lethargy as they failed to make any impression in the first half. They were unable to cope with Bishopstown’s midfield and half forward line in particular and found themselves 1-7 to 0-5 down at the break, having played with wind advantage. Carrig’s first score had fallen to teenager Darren O’Driscoll making his debut at this grade  - and not out of place in his overall display. Robbie White and Stephen Dineen had points, but a few other efforts went a begging. Thomas Murray scored the Bishopstown goal  after a strong run and it helped reflect their first half dominance on the scoreboard . Carrig had fielded without the injured Noel Furlong and his steadying influence was missed in that first half. He joined the action after the break and his presence was a boost.


However, Carrig could not carve out any significant goal chances and the game seemed to have got away from them with the score standing at 1-12 to 0-8 with less than 5 minutes remaining. A number of stoppages for injuries and mini brawls were doing nothing to help Carrig’s cause. Micky Da Fitzgerald ended up stretchered off with injury as matters went from bad to worse. These events did mean that some minutes of injury time would be played. Could Carrig get anything going? The answer was an emphatic yes. Tomas Hogan stepped up from goals to crash a 21 yard free to the net, and a minute later, with the clock past 60 minutes, he repeated the trick from the penalty spot. 1-12 to 2-8. Still time? Carrig won a long range free and Tomas’s effort dropped in the square – but was deflected out for a 65 which he duly converted. Game level. Time up. Extra time! Carrig spectators had found their voices at last after a frustrating hour and the stand was throbbing with new found excitement. 


Could Carrig now capitalise on their momentum? Alas not – as Bishopstown goaled with their first attack of extra time - Denis Crowley getting the touch. They quickly stretched their lead to 5 points. Was this the end ? Not so. Carrig struck back with a fabulous Jason Barrett goal, set up by Shane Fives and then Fives touched home a long delivery to amazingly put Carrig in the lead for the first time since early in the match.  Shane had played thro’ the pain barrier, with a suspected broken rib picked up in the second half of normal time. Pa Cronin equalised for Bishopstown before the break and the crowd again drew breath. Which way would the contest swing next? Answer - in Bishopstown’s favour, as referee David Copps awarded them a penalty which Cronin scored, despite Noel Furlong's best efforts on the line. Carrig came again with another long range Tomas Hogan free and a clever Jason Barrett score left the minimum between the teams. Noel Furlong was forced off with a recurrence of a hamstring injur . A second yellow card for Stephen Kidney reduced Carrig to 14 men and made a difficult task even more difficult and ultimately impossible as Tomas Murray cut a sideline over the bar to give Bishopstown a 2 point cushion and Carrig could not find another goal opportunity. Game over! 

Nothing lost in defeat by Carrig, but some regrets will be harboured. Championship ambitions put away for another year. As an aside, league ambitions also crumbled, with Carrig's 16 point tally, by virtue of yesterday’s draw, leaving Carrig just outside the top six and qualification for the knock-out stage. Carrig can now take time out to assess their progress and status. Some questions are being posed about next year’s championship format and interaction with inter-county fare. A four month gap between Carrig's two championship games this year seems to underline that the current system is not perfect – but Bishopstown were in the same boat – so no excuses are sought. Bishopstown now meet our favourite adversaries, Midleton, next weekend, in the quarter final. We can only watch and wonder - what if . Over and Out !

Darren O’Driscoll 0-1.

Championship v Bride Rovers in Ballynoe on Sunday 2nd June 2013

Carrigtwohill 0-19  Bride Rovers  1-13

Carrigtwohill's senior hurlers guaranteed their progress in this year’s championship, secured their status for 2014, picked up a pair of league points, and avenged their defeat to the Rovers from the 2010 championship all in one swoop on Sunday at Ballynoe. Not a bad night's work.


The achievement was all the more praiseworthy when measured against the injury crisis that existed prior to throw in and worsened considerably as the second half of this encounter progressed. Central forwards Niall McCarthy and Shane Fives failed to start, while central defenders, Noel Furlong and Pat Sullivan, and midfield stalwart  Colm O Connell were all

forced off with leg injuries in the second half. However, when Carrig's need was greatest,

Niall Mac, and Noel Furlong returned to the field, injuries forgotten, and played major parts in closing out the deal. Rehab can start now for Round 4 .


It was a tough manly encounter – but generally played in good spirit. At half time, it looked like

the Carrig ‘s cavalry of the dynamic duo above, wouldn’t be needed, as Carrig shot 12 impressive points (and only one wide ) to Bride Rovers 0-4. It has to be acknowledged that Bride Rovers

were out of luck with their shooting early on - and it took them a while to get motoring.  Danny O’Mahony, Robbie White and Stephen Dineen were on fire, and with Jason Barret, Mickey Da

and Tomas Hogan, also contributing, Carrig would not  have been flattered with a bigger margin.

A  half chance of goal tantalisingly eluded Tomas.  So an 8 point half time margin. Enough? Not when you’re playing the Rovers .


The Rovers got two early second half points on the board, before  Stephen Dineen lifted the siege. Both sets of supporters roared on their sides and Barry Johnson and Padraig Hogan traded some impressive long range pointed frees. Rovers Michael Kearney put the game in the balance with a 45 minute goal that left only three between the sides. Carrig’s lead seemed very precarious at a 3 point margin, with the centre of defence now replaced and the Rovers with the bit between their teeth, and throwing caution to the wind.

 However, some switches helped steady the ship. Danny O Mahony was now anchoring the defence, with substitute Sean Forbes playing out of his skin alongside, and Niall Mac entering the fray, suddenly Carrig carried more threat. After a few target practice wides, Niall deliver two beauties, one off his knees, reminiscent of Brian Corcoran  on another stage.

Still the game wasn’t won and a frantic 4 minutes of injury time ( all legit!), was played mostly in Carrig's half – and a lot of it in Carrig's square! Some vital blocks and clearances by Liam O Sullivan, Ronan Power and the ever dependable Furlong saved the day. Extra time nightmare avoided. Relegation minefield avoided. Field hospital mobilised. Troops should be ready for August !


Scorers :  Micky Da 0-4 (2 f ), P. Hogan 0-4 ( 3f)  Danny O’Mahony 0-3, Rob White 0-3, Stephen Dineen 0-3, Niall McCarthy 0-2.


Team: Willie McCarthy, Andy Garde, Pat O’Sullivan, Ronan Power, Padraic Hogan, Noel Furlong, Michael O'Riordan, Colm O'Connell, Liam O’Sullivan,  Stephen Dineen, Danny O Mahony, Jason Barrett, Tomas Hogan,  Robbie White, Mickey Da Fitzgerald.

League v Sars in Carrigtwohill on Saturday 21st September 2013

Carrigtwohill 1-15  Sars 1-19

Carrigtwohill suffered a second consecutive league defeat in a week, despite a an improved  performance against east Cork rivals Sars, this Saturday evening. Carrig will have concerns at the loss of Noel Furlong and Robbie White during the game, and with Micky Da Fitzgerald, Padraic

Hogan and Daniel O’Mahony failing to start, it will be a race against time to have a fully fit starting fifteen for the upcoming championship match in 2 weeks. Carrig have however overcome similar adversity in the past. Sars for their part , were without their 4 strong Cork contingent  and a few

other established first team players, but still had too much guile for Carrig on this occasion.

Carrig were timid in their early scoring efforts and found themselves playing catch up from early

on- with Sars gaining a 8-4 lead after 20 mins. They then made a major breakthro’ with a Garvan McCarthy goal after Noel Furlong pulled up injured. Carrig hung on however and a gritty

Shane Fives goal had Carrig still in contention 1-10 to 1-6 at the break.

Despite Sars enjoying the benefit of the wind in the second half Carrig hung on well and had the margin down to 3 points with 5 mins to go- before Sars worked an insurance point late on.  Jay Horgan impressed scoring three points after taking over the free taking duties. Substitute Darren O’ Driscoll also made his mark with a super score. Ultimately, it was Carrig’s slow start that cost them . Can lessons be learned? Carrig will need to dust themselves down and get the troops ready for Oct 6th  for their last league game with Bishopstown – but more importantly Championship Round 4.


Scorers - Shane Fives 1-2, Robbie White 0-4, Niall McCarthy 0-3, Jay Horgan 0-3( frees), Stephen Dineen 0-1,  Darren O Driscoll 0-1, Tomas Hogan 0-1 free.

Team - Tomas Hogan, Ronan Power, Pat O'Sullivan, Andy Gadre, Michael O'Riordan, Noel Furlong, Jason Barrett, Colm O'Connell,

League v Douglas in Carrigtwohill on Tuesday 17th September 2013

Carrigtwohill 0-14  Douglas  1-16

Douglas put an end to a string of recent Carrigtwohill victories in league and challenge games and put a serious dent in Carrig's league knock out  qualification ambitions. Douglas made better use of the driving wind and rain to pull away to a 5 point victory after the sides were level 1-11 to 0-14 with less than 10 minutes remaining. Carrig had the advantage of the elements in the first  half and should have made the perfect start but Robbie White passed up a glorious goal opportunity. He made amends with a string of impressive points and Carrig led  0-8 to 0-3, when disaster struck and Douglas goaled from a close in free. Padraic Hogan hit two long range frees to give Carrig a 4 point gap at the break 0-10 to 1-3.

This lead didn’t look sufficient and lighting struck a second time when another open goal was missed – this time Micky Da was the unlucky one. Douglas whittled down the gap and were on terms 1-9 to 0-12 by the three-quarter stage, and led 1-11 to 0-13 before Michael O'Riordan hit a long range equaliser. This proved to be Carrig's final score. A further goal opportunity was spurned when Stephen Kidney blasted against the Douglas keeper when picked out by the hardworking Shane Fives. Douglas found their range and hit five unanswered  points, while Carrig ran out of ideas.


Scorers -  Padraic Hogan 0-8 ( frees), Robbie White 0-4, Jason Barrett 0-1, M O’Riordan 0-1.

Team - Shane Devlin, Aaron Gosnell, Ronan Power, Sean Forbes, Michael O'Riordan, Noel Furlong, Jason Barrett, Colm O'Connell, Padraig Hogan, Stephen Kidney, Shane Fives, Daniel O'Mahony ,  Jay Horgan,  Robbie White, Mickey Da Fitzgerald.

League v Erin's Own in Carrigtwohill on Tuesday 3rd September 2013

Carrigtwohill 2-13  Erin's Own 0-8

Carrigtwohill senior hurlers had a second win on the trot over  East Cork opponents, beating neighbours Erin's Own 2-13 to 0-8 in a rather tame affair. Erin's Own conceded home advantage to avail of Carrig's floodlights – but were forced to face a low sinking September sun in the first half and a determined Carrig outfit. Carrig led 1-8 to 0-4 at the interval after a strong spell with 3 points on the trot from Robbie White and Danny O’Mahony crashed home a goal after good work by Shane Fives.


Erin's Own will carry the flag for the rebels at next weekend’s Kilmacud Sevens, but their recent championship exit took the edge off their intensity in the 15 man game and Carrig were able to withstand all that was thrown at them in the second half, and 3 long range points from Padraic Hogan, another by goalkeeper Tomas, and a fine solo goal from Liam O'Sullivan made the result certain and allowed Carrig introduce a full hand of subs and have a look at their options ahead of the eagerly anticipated upcoming championship match with Bishopstown.


Scorers - Padraic Hogan 0-4, Robbie White 0-4, S Fives 0 -2, Liam O’Sullivan 1-0, Danny O Mahony 1-0, N McCarthy 0-1,

League v Killeagh in Carrigtwohill on Tuesday 27th August 2013

Carrigtwohill 3-17 Killeagh 2-12 

Carrigtwohill senior hurlers were good value for this win over East Cork rivals Killeagh on

Tuesday evening last. Killeagh made all the early running and weren’t flattered by a 1-10 to 0-9

lead at half–time on a perfect evening for hurling. Killeagh were far more committed, and they stretched Carrig's midfield and half back line repeatedly and an Andy Walsh goal gave them a

cushion at the break and appeared to set them up for a strong second period.  However, the

game swung dramatically in Carrig's favour from the throw in, thanks in no small part to substitute Stephen Kidney's forceful play, and the storming second half performance of midfielder Jay Horgan.


A Shane Fives goal on the 40th minute put Carrig 1-14 to 1-11 ahead and they never looked back.

Niall Mc got a touch to a long Tomas Hogan free for another green flag, and Kidney completed the scoring for Carrig with a deserved 3rd goal, before Joe Deane had a late consolation goal for the visitors. The points help Carrig's league position in a very bunched field, and they will be hopeful of

further progress with upcoming games with Erin's Own, Tuesday next, Sept 3rd  and possibly Douglas ( Sept 10th or 12th ), both at home,  before the serious business of championship on Sat 21st Sept .


Scorers - N McCarthy 1-2, S Fives 1-2, S Kidney 1-0, Micky Da Fitzgerald  0-4( 0-2 f), Robbie White 0-4, Padraic Hogan 0-3, S Dineen  0-1,  Jay Horgan 0-1, Danny O Mahony 0-1.

League v Ballinhassig in Carrigtwohill on Sunday 18th August 2013

Carrigtwohill 1-16 Ballinhassig  0-16

Carrigtwohill put in a strong second half to see off visitors Ballinhassig in a keenly contested

Red FM senior hurling league match this Sunday morning . Carrig were missing a number of  players, but welcomed back Pat O'Sullivan to defence after a long absence. Despite playing

with the wind Carrig found themselves down a point, 9 to 8, at the turn over. Colm O'Connell

had to leave the field after receiving a nasty head wound before half time – but returned to play

a vital role in defence. Shane Healy made a major impact when introduced in the second half

and had a hand in several scores.  

The key score arrived mid-way through the second half when Jay Horgan bravely flicked a

Niall Mac cross to the net after an excellent build up. Ballinhassig had a chance to salvage something late on when awarded a close in free by referee James Birmingham, but Martin Coleman blasted over having made the trip from his own goals – and Carrig held out for the

league points.
The focus remains on the upcoming championship, but Carrig will be pleased to have seen action

on a busy weekend for hurling, when rivals Midleton, Glen Rovers, Na Pairsaig, and Douglas all advanced to the county quarter-finals, while Ballinhassig’s relegation final opponents emerged as St Finbarrs. A thin line between success and failure!


Scorers - Jay Horgan 1-0, Micky Da Fitzgerald  0-4 ( 0-2 f), S Fives 0-3, S Dineen  0-3, N McCarthy 0-3, Tomas Hogan 0-2 ( frees ),  Shane Healy 0-1 ( to be checked ).

League v Blackrock in Church Road on Tuesday 18th June 2013

Carrigtwohill 3-12 Blackrock 0-21

Carrig salvaged a draw in Church Road with a brilliant 65 from near the sideline by Padraic Hogan with time nearly up. It moves Carrig into the top half of the Red FM Senior League after a very patchy performance that included 16 wides and numerous other missed chances. Carrig started in whirlwind fashion with a terrific solo goal from Robbie White followed shortly afterwards by a goal from Mickey Da. They held a three point lead mid-way through the half but needed a goal from Tomas Hogan to regain the lead late in the half after Blackrock had scored a succession of points. 


Carrig trailed at half time, 0-14 to 3-4, and fell two points behind early in the second half before they enjoyed their best phase in the game. Seventeen year old substitute Darren O'Driscoll scored the first of two fine points, Danny O'Mahony took over at centre back in an inspirational performance, Tomas Hogan made a strong impact at centre field when he was switched and Niall McCarthy came more into the game in the half forward line. With ten minutes to go Carrig had pulled two points ahead but they couldn't build on that advantage and needed a nerveless 65 from Padraic Hogan to get out of jail.


Carrig scorers: Mickey Da Fitzgerald 1-4 (0-3 frees); Robbie White 1-1; Tomas Hogan 1-0; Steven Dineen, Darren O'Driscoll and Padraic Hogan (both 65s) 0-2 each.

Carrig: Willie McCarthy, Andy Garde, Ronan Power, Sean Forbes, Padraic Hogan, Danny O'Mahony, Liam O'Sullivan, Cillian McCarthy, Colm O'Connell, Steven Dineen, Robbie White, Jason Barrett, Tomas Hogan, Niall McCarthy, Mickey Da Fitzgerald.

League v St Finbarrs in Carrigtwohill on Wednesday 12th June 2013

Carrigtwohill 1-19 St Finbarrs 2-12

Carrigtwohill scrambled to mid table of the Red FM senior hurling league with a 4 point win over

St Finbarrs. Carrig were good value for a half time lead of 0-13 point to 1-6, and would not have been flattered to be further ahead. Danny O'Mahony played a lot of ball in the centre-back berth

and Robbie White impressed at centre forward hitting some fine points but Carrig passed up

some decent goal chances to put daylight between the sides.

St Finbarrs, facing a second round championship game against Douglas in a few weeks time, showed good spirit in the second half and could have got something out of the game if they had converted the many chances they created. Carrig looked home and dry when Micky Da found the

net from a Robbie White pass to stretch the lead to 7 points 1-17 to 1-10, midway thro’ the half. However, a rare mistake from the otherwise excellent Willie McCarthy, allowed the Barrs to stay

in contact, and Carrig's nerves were frayed as they managed to survive another late onslaught - much like the recent Bride Rovers game. Danny O'Mahony had to limp off late on and without regular centre back Noel Furlong and full back Pat O'Sullivan Carrig did well to see out the match,

a game they led from the start.

League v Glen Rovers in Glen Field on Saturday 25th May 2013

Carrigtwohill 2-11 Glen Rovers 3-16

A severely depleted Carrigtwohill team faded in the second half of their Red FM senior league match against Glen Rovers on Saturday. Fielding without a number of regulars, including Noel Furlong, Niall McCarthy, Daniel O'Mahony, Colm O'Connell and Shane Fives, Carrig couldn't build on a decent first half performance.


Carrig trailed by a point at the break, 2-8 to 2-7, having fought their way back from a two goal deficit. Robbie White continued his hot scoring streak with a pair of goals, Jason Barrett and Stephen Dineen both chipped in with two points a piece from play and Padraic Hogan continued with good form with another strong display in defence.

Both teams struggled with a tricky cross wind and Carrig finished the match with 13 wides, just two fewer than the Glen. The home team put themselves in a commanding position during the third quarter and Carrig never looked like getting the goals they needed to turn the game around.


Carrig - William McCarthy, Andy Garde, Pat O'Sullivan, Aaron Gosnell, Padraic Hogan, Ronan Power, Michael O'Riordan, Jason Barrett, Killian McCarthy, Stephen Dineen, Liam O'Sullivan, Tomas Hogan, Liam O'Connell, Robert White, Mickey Da Fitzgerald.

Sub used - Ciaran Gosnell




League v Newtownshandrum in Kilworth on Tuesday 14th May 2013

Newtownshandrum 0-14 Carrigtwohill 0-12

A strong performance in the final quarter narrowly failed to rescue a point for Carrig in this hotly contested Senior Hurling League match in Kilworth on Tuesday evening. Six points down with 15 minutes to go Carrig reduced the deficit to a point with time nearly up but couldn't avail of a couple of opportunities to equalise and Newtown secured the points with a score in stoppage time. Having played against a really strong wind in the first half Carrig were in a reasonable position at half time trailing by just three points, 0-9 to 0-6. Tomas Hogan scored two terrific points in that period and Mickey Da Fitzgerald was also on the score sheet playing his first match since last November.

However, Niall McCarthy was forced off with a minor injury at half time and Carrig failed to score in the first 15 minutes of the second half, allowing Newtown to pull further clear. The Carrig defence was once again outstanding with Pat O'Sullivan and Noel Furlong playing brilliantly in the central positions but Carrig's shooting and shot selection was poor. They finished the game with 11 wides as well as dropping half a dozen shots into the goalie's hand.


Carrig's pressure eventually forced Newtown to concede scoreable frees which were punished by Tomas and Mickey Da. The excellent Colm O'Connell landed an inspirational point from centre field and for a while it seemed as if Carrig's late momentum might get them over the line but they couldn't quite draw level, despite twice reducing the leeway to a point. 


Carrig's next League match is against Glen Rovers on Saturday week in the Glen Field at 5 pm.


Carrig - William McCarthy, Sean Forbes, Pat O'Sullivan, Ronan Power, Andy Garde, Noel Furlong, Michael O'Riordan, Padraic Hogan, Colm O'Connell, Steven Dineen, Jason Barrett, Tomas Hogan, Mickey Da Fitzgerald, Niall McCarthy, Stephen Kidney.

League v Midleton in Carrigtwohill on Sunday 5th May 2013

Midleton 1-13  Carrigtwohill 1-12

Midleton did enough to secure the points and the bragging rights in a hard fought league

encounter at Carrigtwohill this bank holiday weekend Sunday. Both teams were close to full strength – but Midleton were fielding without inter-county player Conor Lehane, while Carrig welcomed back Niall McCarthy and Jason Barrett.


It was Midleton who started well however and led  0-5 to 0-3 after the first quarter and had a

decisive goal from a close in free from Bud Harnett, after some poor decision making in the

Carrig rear-guard yielded the opportunity. Willie Mac made a good save before the break to

keep Carrig in touch 1-7 to 0-5 at half time. Carrig suffered a blow with the loss of

Danny O'Mahony to a shoulder injury before half time. Carrig had struggled in the forwards

in that half, with only Niall Mac posing any consistent  threat and landing two points from play.

Carrig upped the ante in the 3rd quarter and notched 4 points on the trot, Shane Fives and

Jason Barrett, adding to Robbie Whites brace, to reduce the deficit to the minimum before

Midleton got on the board. Carrig continued to take the game to Midleton and got on level terms

on two occasions thanks to a pair of frees from Tomas Hogan.


With the score 1-9 to 0-12, and with 10 minutes remaining, Carrig appeared to have the momentum. Midleton’s free- takers however punished most discretions in the Carrig half and they managed to keep their noses in front and finish strongly. A Padraig O'Shea point put them 4 ahead in the closing stretch – and a late goal from a free by Robbie White was too little to late – as it proved to be the game’s final action.


Carrig will be disappointed with the concession of 1-7 to frees but glad on an improvement from the St Patrick's day trouncing in last year’s league. The strong cross wind also meant missed chances and some narrow wides – on both sides – but Carrig's were more costly. The game wasn’t quite played at championship intensity - only a handful of yellow cards !!. Both teams will hope to step up a further notch in four weeks’ time, when first round dates with destiny arrive.


Scorers - R White 1- 5 ( 1-3 f), N McCarthy 0-3, T Hogan 0-2, S Fives 0-1, J Barrett 0-1.

Team - Willie McCarthy, Andy Garde, Pat O’Sullivan, Ronan Power, Danny O'Mahony, Noel Furlong, Michael O'Riordan, Padraig Hogan, Colm O'Connell, Stephen Dineen, Shane Fives, Tomas Hogan, Jason Barrett, Robbie White, Niall McCarthy ,

League v Ballymartle in Carrigtwohill on Monday 22nd April 2013

Carrigtwohill 3-14 Ballymartle 2-16

Carrigtwohill Seniors hurlers emerged the victors thanks to a last minute goal from

Tomas Hogan in a hard fought league game at Carrigtwohill. Carrig and Ballymartle usually

serve up a ding dong battle whenever they meet, and this proved no exception. Ballymartle

led by a point at the interval 1-10 to 1-09 having played against the wind and the low evening sun. Ballymartle had an early goal to settle them, but Robbie White struck for the first of his brace

mid- way through the half and also excelled on free taking duties. Carrig failed to push on

however and were punished by accurate marksmanship from Ballymartle’s free-takers in

particular- while Carrig had a number of wayward efforts.


However Carrig raised their game in the second half and looked set for victory after White's

2nd goal until hit by sucker punch in the form of a Darren McCarthy goal from a free and a

Brian Corry point which gave the visitors a 2 point margin entering the home straight.

 Carrig however dug deep and were rewarded with Tomas’s late late strike from a 20

metre free to snatch it at the death.


Carrig's next league outing will be against Midleton on the May bank Holiday weekend.


Scorers - Robbie White 2-6, Tomas Hogan 1-3, Liam Barry 0-1 , Padraic Hogan 0-1, Danny O'Mahony 0-1, Stephen Dineen 0-1,
Shane Fives 0-1.

Team - Willie McCarthy, Andy Garde, Pat O’Sullivan, Ronan Power, Danny O'Mahony, Noel Furlong, Padraig Hogan, Colm O'Connell,

League v Na Piarsaigh in Na Piarsaigh on Friday 5th April 2013

Carrigtwohill 3-12 Na Piarsaigh 1-14

Carrigtwohill seniors hurlers got their first win of the 2013 campaign in relatively balmy spring conditions at Na Piarsaigh's ground  at Fairhill on Friday, with a 3-12 to 1-14 victory.  

The weather was not the only improvement evident since last weekend's defeat to Courcey Rovers, with Carrig taking the game to Na Pairsaigh from the off, and taking a 3-6 to 1-7 lead into the break. Carrig were strengthened by newcomers Aidan O'Donnell and Shane Fives, but it was Robbie White who took the scoring honours, hitting 3-2 in a purple patch midway through the half. The lead, and the final outcome could have been greater had Carrig's accuracy up front not let them down with 15 wides over the hour from play and frees. - a failing that cost Carrig dearly when the sides last met in last year's quarter final.


This time however, Carrig had enough of a cushion created in that early period of dominance and were able to see out the game in the second half . Carrig were helped by Na Piarsaigh losing a player to a straight red card midway through the second half. This allowed Carrig to employ a sweeper in defence and led to full back Pat O'Sullivan getting on the score board with a rare point. However a spirited Na Piarsaigh side never gave up, and Padraig Gould was unerring from frees throughout, raising at least 6 white flags, and Carrig could not get the crucial scores to make the game safe. Noel Furlong and Mick O'Riordan got a crucial combined block on a late goal bound effort before the final whistle and before Carrig could feel secure. Colm O'Connell and Liam O'Sullivan held sway at midfield for most of the hour and set the tone for an energetic and industrious performance from their teammates in both attack and defence. A sizable Carrig contingent of supporters travelled to the game and were rewarded with a satisfactory victory over the early league pacesetters. A feature of the evening was a mini game at half time between local underage boys which was warmly applauded by all present. Next up, Ballymartle at home, Sunday 21st  April – time to be confirmed.


Scorers : Robbie White 3-2, Tomas Hogan 0-3(2 f ), Stephen Dineen 0-2, Padraig Hogan 0-2 ( f), Aidan O Donnell, Shane Fives,
Pat O 'Sullivan 0-1 each.

League v Courcey Rovers in Ballinspittle on Monday 1st April 2013

Carrigtwohill 0-11 Courcey Rovers 1-14

Carrigtwohill Senior hurlers' hopes of a winning start to this year’s senior hurling league were blown off course in Ballinspittle on Bank Holiday Monday where the home team prevailed in bitterly cold conditions. Carrig played against the strong wind in the first half and trailed 1-12 to 0-6 points at half time.

Good hurling and space were at a premium and the conditions made handling and stiking difficult. Courceys showed the benefit of two previous outings, however, and were 1-3 to 0-0 in front before Robbie White finally opened Carrig's account, and when Mick O Riordan added a second,it looked like we might have a game on our hands. Courceys however hit a purple patch and hit a series of five unanswered points from distance before Carrig had raised another flag. Some careless clearances didn’t help Carrig's cause. Points from play from Stephen Dineen and Ciaran Gosnell gave Carrig some hope for the second half change of ends.


Carrig failed to get the early scores in the second half to close the gap and give Courcey’s cause for concern. Courcey’s effectively shut out the Carrig forwards who never seriously threatened the Courcey’s goal. The Hogan brothers Tomas and Padraig had to be content with long range frees, and Carrig were wasteful with a total of 11 wides in the half  as the game fizzled out. Carrig’s best goal chance came in the first half when Robbie White was harshly adjudged to have picked the ball off the ground , with an empty net beckoning. What might have been?


Team - Willie McCarthy, Andy Garde, Pat O Sullivan, Aaron Gosnell, Mick O Riordan, Noel Furlong, Padraic Hogan, Colm O Connell, Ronan Power, Stephen Dineen, Liam O Sullivan, Killian McCarthy, Tomas Hogan, Robbie White, Ciaran Gosnell.

Challenge v Lismore in Carrigtwohill on Thursday 25th April 2013

Carrigtwohill 4-19  Lismore 3-16

Carrigtwohill had the better of this high scoring shoot-out against Lismore, with young Darren O’Driscoll bagging all four goals for the home team. Carrig led 1-10 to 0-6 at half time after

strong performances from Padraig Hogan, Colm O Connell and Stephen Dineen. Sean Forbes started at corner back and was unfortunate to receive a facial injury just before half time.


The game opened up in the second half but Carrig were always able to keep Lismore at bay, despite the best efforts of Maurice Shanahan, who goaled twice from frees , and was his side's main threat. Carrig are still without injured or absent Brian Lordan, Mickey Da Fitzgerald, Aidan O'Donnell, Jason Barrett, Stephen Kidney and Aaron Gosnall, but the biggest taking point

pitchside is the imminent return of Niall McCarthy. Will he feature against Midleton on

Sunday week , May 5th – 6.30 pm ? Be there.


Scorers - Darren O Driscoll 4-1, Tomas Hogan 0-5, Stephen Dineen 0-5, Danny O’Mahony 0-3, Shane Fives 0-2, Robbie White 0-1, Padraig Hogan 0-1, Ciaran Gosnell 0-1.

Challenge v Imokilly in Carrigtwohill onTuesday 16th April 2013

Imokilly  0-19 Carrigtwohill 1-14

Imokilly got the better of Carrig with a couple of  late pointed frees in a closely contested challenge in Carrigtwohill last Tuesday evening. Imokilly were preparing for their championship clash with CIT at the Carrig venue on Tuesday next while Carrig continue to focus on the league with Ballymartle visiting on Monday. The game was useful to both sides, but Carrig were hampered by a few injury absentees, while Imokilly were also without some notable big guns .


Carrig led for a lot of the game after an early goal, when Robbie White beat Donal Og Cusack from close range. Carrig led 1-8 to 0-10 at the break, and it was pleasing that all 6 forwards had contribute on the scoreboard. The intensity dropped a little in the second half as both managements used their benches. Liam O'Connell impressed for Carrig with two well earned points to round off an industrious performance, while Cillain McCarthy and Liam O'Sullivan served Carrig well at midfield. Brian Lordan was out due to his recurring injury, joining Micky Da Fitzgerald and Aidan O’Donnell as likely championship absentees.


Team: Willie McCarthy, Andy Garde, Pat O'Sullivan, Aaron Gosnall, Ronan Power, Noel Furlong, Padraig Hogan, Cillian McCarthy,
 Liam O'Sullivan, Stephen Dineen, Danny O'Mahony, Tomas Hogan, Liam O'Connell, Robbie White, Liam Barry ,

Challenge v Ballyduff in Ballyduff on Thursday 14th March 2013

Carrigtwohill 1-14 Ballyduff 1-14

Carrig's senior hurlers continued the build up to their first League match on Easter Monday with a well earned draw against Ballyduff in Waterford. Played on a very heavy pitch Carrig came from four points down late in the game to force a draw, having led by four points mid-way through the first half. Carrig welcomed back Noel Furlong from a long injury absence and Killian McCarthy also made his first appearance of the season. 


Colm O'Connell was once again Carrig's outstanding player, giving a tireless performance at centre field, while Robbie White continued his return to full fitness with another lively and productive performance. He was among the early scorers as Carrig built up a good lead mid-way through the first half but indiscipline in the Carrig defence allowed Ballyduff to reduce the deficit to a point at half time. Ballyduff made a fast start to the second half and were well on top for a significant period. A Liam O'Sullivan goal, though, helped inspire a late Carrig comeback and Tomas Hogan clinched the draw with a late free.


Carrig - William McCarthy, Pat O'Sullivan, Andy Garde, Padraic Hogan, Noel Furlong, Ronan Power, Michael O'Riordan, Liam O'Sullivan, Colm O'Connell, Stephen Dineen, Aidan O'Donnell, Tomas Hogan, Liam O'Connell, Robbie White, Ciaran Gosnell.

Challenge v Ring in Carrigtwohill on Saturday 9th March 2013

Carrigtwohill 5-17 Ring 0-10

Newly promoted Waterford senior club Ring found Carrigtwohill too strong in an early season challenge on Saturday. Carrig were again experimental but had enough quality and guile to pull away emphatically in the second half. Ring were in touch at half time with the score reading 1-7 to 0-7 to Carrig. Robbie White was Carrig's goal scorer.

Carrig effectively ended the contest with a second goal  from a Tomas Hogan pile driver, just after the turn around. Carrig had introduced Liam O'Sullivan at half time and he helped himself to 2-2, Robbie White had some excellent points, while other young substitutes, Eoghan O'Mahony goaled, and Kieran Gosnell and Brian Cashman pointed, to rack up an impressive final tally of 5-17 to Rings 0-10.


Scorers - Liam Sullivan  2-2, Tomas Hogan 1-4, Robbie White 1-4, E O'Mahony 1-0, Aidan O Donnell  0-2, S Dineen 0-2, K Gosnell 0-2, Brian Cashman 0-1.

Challenge v Drom and Inch (Tipperary) in Carrigtwohill on Tuesday 5th March 2013

Carrigtwohill 3-10 Drom and Inch 3-15

Carrigtwohill's senior hurlers continued their preparation for the upcoming league campaign with a game under lights at Carrig against Tipperary side Drom and Inch. Neither team were full strength and Carrig were in experimental mode with the loss of regulars Andy Garde and Liam Sullivan on match day further to the existing group of injured or re-habilitating players.  Carrig endured a disastrous start conceding three soft early goals and a torrid evening seemed on the cards. However, Colm O'Connell and Jay Horgan got a grip of the game at centre field and goals by Tomas Hogan and Liam Barry had Carrig in front at the break 2-8 to 3-3.


Drom and Inch stepped up the gears in the second half with wind advantage and eventually ran out winners on a 3-16 to 3-10 scoreline, with Aiden O'Donnell grabbing  Carrig’s third goal. Apart from the midfield pairing, Aaron Gosnell and Padraig Hogan were prominent in defence, Robbie White made a welcome return to the team and second half subs Cathal O'Sullivan and Liam O'Connell made a good impression.


Carrig Scorers - T Hogan 1-6, Liam Barry 1-0, A O Donnell 1-0 , Robbie White 0-2, Colm O Connnell 0-1, S Dineen 0-1.

Team - Willie McCarthy, Donal Hogan, Pat O'Sullivan, Aaron Gosnell, Micky O'Riordan, Ronan Power, Padraig Hogan, Jay Horgan,

Challenge v Midleton in Carrigtwohill on Thursday 21st February 2013

Carrigtwohill 2-8 Midleton 1-18

Carrig seniors shook off the cobwebs with a low key challenge with neighbours Midleton in biting cold conditions in Carrig last evening. Carrig introduced some new faces and were competitive in the first half aided by the strong wind but still trailed by 1-6 to 1-5 at the break. Aidan O'Donnell made an impressive debut and Darren O'Driscoll and Cathal O'Sullivan saw plenty action. Tomas Hogan had Carrig's goal from a penalty. Midleton went on a spree in the 3rd quarter and scored a litany of impressive points - before Carrig rallied to put some respectability on the score board with a late Liam Barry goal. Carrig will be striving to shake off a lot of rustiness before league action commences on St Patrick's day.


Team: Shane Devlin, P O'Sullivan, A Garde, J Horgan, P Hogan , R Power, A O'Donnell, L O Sullivan , C O' Sullivan, S Dineen, B Lordan, C O'Connell, D O'Driscoll. T Hogan, S Rohan.
