Pairc Eamon De Paor:
Fixture Cois Bhríde v Brickey Rangers Minor Football 11.30 am Sunday 23rd February.

Storm Dennis : The minor football fixture for last Sunday was called off. The Waterford league game was called off on two occasions. Would it be radical for the GAA to build a 25,000 or so stadium in the midlands with a 4G pitch catering for the bad weather? If a storm was coming or heavy rainfall give counties advance warning and baring bad wind play matches in such a venue.
Club fixtures now are commencing at an earlier end of March start point. With the winter and early spring weather varying at many times to unplayable pitches , these earlier starts rather than the norm April and May mean that a lot of club need to find alternative venues to train and play games. Hardly an ideal situation!!

Johnny Geary Interview Part 1:
This week I posted a few questions to Johnny Geary on his involvement in Tallow GAA. Johnny won numerous underage titles and two senior hurling titles. He has acted as senior hurling manager and selector as well as being involved in various underage teams . He was Cois Bhride chairman and vice chairman of Tallow GAA.

PRO: You grew up in a time just as Tallow were bearing fruit in our underage structures?
J.G Yes I was lucky enough to be around for the 80's which was a great decade for Tallow GAA where we would have won almost every grade at hurling including Minor , U 21, Junior , Intermediate and Senior titles . We also won a good number of Football titles having a senior football team also for a few years. When Ned Power became Principal in Tallow National School it became a wonderful academy for hurling and I think the 80's titles won were the fruits of the structures and coaching he brought to the club.

PRO: Do you remember any of adult county finals of the seventies?
J.G.: Yes I remember the Intermediate title won in the 70's and we contested a senior county final - a young Tallow team were beaten by Portlaw . Four years later that team won a senior Co Title in 1980, beating Dunhill.

PRO: How much of an influence was Ned Power on your hurling career?

J.G. Ned had a huge influence on myself and all lads that he taught for the 60 s, 70 s and 80 s . We were fortunate enough to have him in Tallow and he was a tremendous Hurling Man and coach, probably ahead of his time . He was one of the founders of the Gormanstown College Hurling Summer Schools which were the first real structured coaching courses held by the GAA . Ned had coaching and games after school in Tallow every Tues and Thurs and although it wasn’t compulsory to attend, let’s just say he could make things very difficult for you if you didn’t (especially at school the following day). It was hugely enjoyable as he was a real skills coach . Pat Daly often mentioned that a lot of the current Croke Park coaching manual was the work of Ned Power.

PRO: You played on the minor team of 1980 that won the title. A unique double for the club after just winning our first senior hurling title on the field of play a week before. A year later a player from each team had passed on....
J.G.: Yes it was a unique double , I d say the momentum from winning the Senior the previous Sun carried us over the line the following week in the minor . Unfortunately we lost Raymond O Brien and Billy Henley the following year both under tragic circumstances. Two young men in their prime from 2 families steeped in Tallow GAA , It was a very sad time for the people of the Parish and they were a huge loss to their families and to the club.

PRO: You played Junior hurling. We got a bad beating off Roanmore in the 81 Junior final but we beat Tramore after a replay the following year....
J.G.: Yes we had a lot of young talent in the club at that time having won minor in 1980 and had a lot of success in the u 21 grade . We were badly beaten by Roanmore in a county final –they were a good side that went on to win 2 senior titles in the late 80 s . The following year we won the title with a good mixture of young and not so young players . Ned Power played in goals with us at the age of 51 . We beat Ballduff Lower in the semi-final who also had a 50 something Tom Cheasty – both All Ireland Medal winners with Waterford in 1959. Ned used also say to us that he never actually retired –he just wasn’t picked anymore.

PRO: Roanmore were the coming force in the county at the time . You drew with them in an U21 county final. Your father and Seán O'Donoghue were involved in an altercation with a referee. It was quoted in the paper as a tall thin man and a small man in wellingtons. What happened here?
J.G.: Ya we drew with Roanmore in 83 and went on to on to win the replay the following week. At the drawing game my father and Sean O Donoghue weren’t agreeing with some of the refereeing decisions on the day and were letting the referee know in no uncertain terms. The referee went to book the 2 of them and they wouldn’t give their names so the refeuyyrees report stated ,he was abused by a tall, thin grey haired man and a small man with wellingtons . We all knew who was involved but no one ever disclosed to the Co Board who they were. Club said we had no one fitting those descriptions. We got good mileage out of that one, and still do.

PRO: In the replay Roanmore had Kieran Delahunty and McGrath back (two of their stars) yet we beat them..
J.G.: Roanmore had a lot of their future senior stars on that u 21 side ; Noelie Crowley , Kieran Delahunty , The Coadys , Eddie Roche so we weren’t expected to win . They had the lads back for the replay so we were rank outsiders but managed the win .Jim O Donoghue , Philly Curley , Pat Murphy and John Fitzgerald had huge games for us on the day.

PRO: We had three adult hurling teams in the eighties...
J.G.: Yes we had a lot of adult hurlers at the time- After winning the Junior in 82 we went in to 83 with a senior , intermediate and junior team . Actually that year the Intermediate and Senior Championship first rounds were combined so our Senior and Intermediate teams could have been playing each other in the first round if drawn, fortunately that didn’t happen . We fielded a junior team also that year – I think there were a lot of fellows togged out to make that bit of history . The team sheet listed some guest hurlers like Dick O Mahony , Colman O Flynn ( Chuck ) and Milo Aherne to name but a few. I think Milo announced his hurling retirement on being replaced by R O Mahony . in one of their games.

Trip North : Going back to 1996 when a contingent of u16 hurlers lead by Seánie Sheehan, Colin Cunningham, Finn McCarthy, Tom Doyle, Rachael Ryan and Johnny Geary travelled to the Ulster province and to the Tyrone club Naomh Colum Cille, Tallow has always had a good relationship with the Tyrone hurling club. We were last there in 2006 for the official opening of their field by then president Nickey Brennnan. The same occasion was sandwiched between our senior relegation game and replay against Ballyduff Lower. So Liam Mulcahy the President of Naomh Colum Cille ( surely a lifer in East Tyrone) is looking at getting a collection of junior hurlers to travel to the North . The approx cost will depend of numbers but it will be between €150 and €200. Price will include bus, accommodation, and a meal on arrival. We are looking for €50 of a deposit by the weekend. Contact Liam or Terence if interested.

Páirc Éamon de Paor : Minor football Cois Bhríde v Kilrossanty Sunday at 11.30am (weather permitting).

Get well soon to both Maireád Sheehan and Seán Tobin who are both in hospital at the minute.

This week I asked William Murphy about some of his favourite Tallow games that he remembers. William I remember started his career in the full forward line and took the frees. I stylish markman off his right his left was used in emergencies only. He moved out the field as he got older to play to play centre field and as a roving wing forward. In his only adult title for Tallow he won a Junior Football county title in 2010 as a wing back who's jaunting runs were his trademark. Here's his account.

At the risk of sounding like an ex Inter County bainisteoir, Charles Dickens started A Tale of Two Cities with “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”, this is what came to mind when I was asked to write about a couple of my favourite games. I find myself fortunate enough to witness the best of times with Tallow GAA but unfortunately for myself I played through some of the worst of times.

“What’s the best game you ever saw” is a question which inevitably always comes up on a night out with the boys. Most will shoot back with the obvious answers of Waterford versus Cork in the 04 Munster final or when the drought had ended in 2002 against Tipp. Mine is slightly different, the best game I ever saw was the Munster Club Championship game between Tallow and Tipps’ Kilruane MacDonaghs in 1985. A strange game to pick seeing that Tallow would end up losing an epic battle by 1 point. The Guardian reported: “It was a quality game throughout, but the tension and excitement heightened to almost unbearable levels in the last eighteen minutes when both sides raised their game to a spectacular level of skill and determination that is not often witnessed”. It probably gets the nod for several reasons, 1) The game was on in Tallow which was huge and the excitement leading up to the game and on the day was electric, 2) I grew up watching great Tallow teams in the 80s absolutely dominate the County scene. Tallow were to Waterford hurling what Liverpool were to English football, luckily for me I supported both, a great time to be alive!!!! 3)These were different times for instance The Sunday game was still only showing All Ireland finals and maybe semi-finals live every year unlike today where there is probably an over saturation of games being shown live on TV which meant that people got their fix of hurling by flocking to club games and on that day in Tallow the crowd was massive. Looking back, I think that was the pinnacle for the Tallow teams in the 80s and a case of what might have been, Kilruane would go on to be crowned All Ireland champions in 1986, Tallow would be relegated from Senior the same year, “A Tale of Two Cities” indeed. As a side note Kiruane were managed by Len Gaynor and well renowned and much heralded Tipperary hurling coach Eamonn O’Shea was part of the team that day.

The most memorable Football game I was involved with was our victory in the Munster Football championship game we played against Kilfenora of Clare. I could have picked winning the final against Mt Sion but the memory of in some way reliving that infamous day in Tallow in 1985 will stay with me for a long time, like 1985 the game was on in Tallow which was special and there was a great buzz around the Town after the game.

As I have stated I played hurling in Tallow through some of the worst of times. I started playing Senior in the mid-90s where it was all too common to end up fighting relegation so the most memorable game for me is a fairly obscure one, it was a championship game against St Saviours in Abbeyside circa 94/95 for the following reasons, it was the only hurling championship game that I would get to play with my 3 brothers for Tallow, you will find records of one of us playing, sometimes 2 maybe even 3 of us but this is the only one where all 4 Murphy brothers lined up together. It was even sweeter that we lined up in pivotal positions on the team with Martin in goals, the Legend at Full back (not sure how this happened), Spud was at Centre forward and I was full forward. As I have mentioned the team of the 80s were absolute Rock Stars all be it Rock Stars that wore white socks with black slip on shoes with the jeans turned up at the leg but Rock Stars none the less. I mean Tom McSweeney wore a head band while playing in the 80s, how much more Rock and Roll can you get!! Terence would later sneak out the headband and try to channel his inner father, but it didn’t work, the headband looked ridiculous over the blue Coopers helmet he wore! On this day and for a few years after I got to play with and be coached by some of those Hurling Gods, lads like Timmy Sheehan, Johnny Geary, Jacker Curley, the Legend, lads who had won every club accolade from underage to Senior and could have been forgiven for taking their haul of medals and retiring to the high stool. These lads knew the clubs Glory days were over but realised how much the club was in trouble from a playing perspective and decided to play on. More often than not they were the reason Tallow stayed in the Senior Ranks throughout this period. For the record we won the game.

AGM: The annual Tallow GAA annual general meeting took place on Friday last. Chairman Terence McSweeney addressed the 
group and outlined to the attendees and gave a details description of the year previous and what he hoped for in 2020 . He stressed why we need to challenge the executive and push for us to do things better and to continue to move forward. How we need to try something new and not be afraid to make mistakes, once it is in the interest of progression. We are in a healthy position financially due to the stellar work of the lotto committee and the deise draw and how it's imperative to keep the numbers we have in both.

We need to invest more in youth to safeguard our future and strive to provide coaching to them. His two highlights for the year were the World Games where we hosted the Germany team and the trip to Prague. The World Games were driven by our own Pat Daly in Croke Park and it was wonderful to see a big crowd , mainly families , down in the field on a week night.

The trip to Prague was an outstanding success and thoroughly enjoyed by all who went. Connections were made and bonds were formed . We have a strong history of club trips and this definitely offers something to the non-playing member which should be kept up . A big thank you must go to our Kieran Geary who was the driving force behind the trip and responsible for the bulk of the organising.

On the field in senior hurling we reached the preliminary quarter final against Passage but we underperformed on the day. We defeated Ballyduff in the relegation game thereafter . He thanked Denis Walsh, Jimmy Cronin and Paul Kearney for the work during the year.

The junior hurlers had a good league campaign and lost the last league game against Ring. This defeat put us in a semi final against Fourmilewater.  Deja vu came around again as the men from the Comeraghs for the second year in a row defeated us when we couldn't match their physical strength and hurling. It was a pity at the end when the team had such promise at the start of the year and management of Ter , Stuie , Luke and Seán although disappointed at the end can look at very promising campaign.

Following a year absence from football Tallow fielded a junior football team again. We played six games in the league section winning two, the highlights came in a mesmerizing victory against the Geraldines. We narrowly lost to the same opposition in Lismore in the quarter final . Great credit to the management of Tom Bear, Dinny Tobin and Seán Gleeson.

Club All Ireland Finals: Over the weekend we had the two Senior finals and the Intermediate and Junior Hurling Finals.
Ballyhale won the senior final again as their economical use of ball bettered a hardened Borrisoleigh. The football final showed all that is wrong with the game. Mass defence , lateral hand passing and ill discipline.  The faster the sin bin is in for a deliberate pull down the better!! A horrible bit of gamesmanship. A foul on the fifty five metre line , the ball was struck out of the Kilkoo players a hand and amazingly the ball is kicked over from a free just on the D. The neutral crowd were shouting for Kilcoo with the 
Corofin boys trying to win by all manners necessary or unnecessary.  A row in the tunnel and the momentum turned to Corofin to showing how they should have played, resulting in the first three in a row at club All Ireland level. Tulloroan snatched a one point victory against the desperately unlucky Father O'Neill's. One of the games greats Tommy Walsh's children were denied access onto the field but it doesn't apply to the 
Dublin footballers whose children get free reign after an All Ireland. Shane Walsh gave one of the great speech's after.

his week I spoke to James Beecher about his favourite games over the years. He came back from Dublin in 1993 after studying to become a butcher. He played senior from 94 to 06. His career was affected by two bad injuries. One was a discolated knee cap against Carrigtwohill and the was hip operation which ended his career. He ployed his trade across all lines of the defence as well as stint in the forwards. On the managerial side he was manager of both U21 hurling victories in 2002 and 2003. He last managed Tallow seniors in 2010.

Two games stick out in my head when I look back to my playing days. Oddly enough bought were drawn games, maybe that tells it's own story !

Both were around 2005/06. The first was against near rivals Lismore in a championship game in Cappoquin. For the most part we were terrible in the first half and were nine points behind at the break. We pulled ourselves together and came away with a share of the spoils, I suppose it nearly felt like a win after being nine adrift.

The second was a challenge game against Cloyne. They had been competing for Cork senior titles at the time and you know yourself as a player you always wanted to test yourself against top opposition. I just remember it being a very good game of hurling where we more than held our own.

Favourite games watched at club would be; as young fella, the 85 senior and 86 minor successes were mighty. The back to back U21 titles 2002/03 were special to be involved in as you well know. At inter county, it's hard to beat that 2004 Munster final !

AGM is on Friday the 17th January at 8pm in the clubhouse.

I was listening to Ray Silke speak prior to the Corofin Nemo Rangers game.The same game in which Corofin were trying to get to their third Club All Ireland Final in a row. He spoke how Corofin didn't win counties in U21, minor, u16, u14 last year. How the match TG4 were showing was going to be defined by winners and loosers but he stated that it is skillset that is more important to coach youngsters. It is more important to have youngsters still involved in later years than weighed down by winning and loosing. They might not all be playing but could be future secretaries, lottery sellers and chairman and would be vital for any vibrant club in the years to come. So developing them is surely what is needed.

Tallow GAA would like to congratulate our club President Eddie Cunningham on being awarded the Séamus O'Brien award in this year's Local bar Waterford GAA awards.

Pat Grant spoke eloquently of Eddie's involvement in the association on WLR FM. He stated how he served as secretary of Tallow GAA club at the age of sixteen and has held nearly all positions of his club. He was selector of Waterford minor footballers in 1967. He was selector of both hurling and football at minor grade for Waterford in 1968. His greatest achievement on the county stage was in 1992 as minor hurling selector as Waterfordwon Munster but lost out narrowly to Galway in the 1992 All Ireland Minor Hurling Final. On the administration side he served as Western board chairmain and treasurer for several years. He worked on committes for both Croke Park and the Munster Council as well as being a referee assessor. For Tallow he was involved in nearly all aspects of teams from the sixties onwards. A selector in our 1974 intermediate triumph, he was there in our senior glories of the eighties and a minor selector in 1997. His last team involvement was part of the management team of 2011 that guided Tallow to a county final appearance. Cunny has given a lifetime of service to our club and we would like to acknowledge his outstanding work and no man deserves this award more.

Picture 1 : Eddie as selector prior to 2011 county hurling final.

Picture 2 : Part of the minor victory of 1980.

Well done to the Cois Bhríde U16 footballers who won the u16 football County final on Sunday in a rain swept Bushy Park against Clan Na Gaeil. The same opposition we beat fifty years ago in the minor football final. Noelie Sheehan scored two goals, Tom Doyle and John Hartigan three each and Mossie Walsh with two points.
