Intermediates start league campaign  


Our intermediate hurlers got their Red FM D2 Group A Hurling League campaign under way last Sunday afternoon away to Carrigaline. Given the amount of rain that fell in the proceeding 48hrs the pitch was in as good condition as could be expected for this time of year but still was heavy underfoot with a fair share of scrummages for possession as is typical for spring hurling. 

With the aid of the breeze in the opening half, the lads got off to a steady start, trading points with Carrigaline until the 11th minute, where a long range free from goalkeeper Aiden Foley ended up in the Carrigaline net, giving us a 0-3 to 1-3 lead. The teams traded points until the 25th minute when the hill led by 0-7 to 1-8. 2 unanswered Seán Desmond frees stretched the gap to 5 points, with the score line 0-7 to 1-9 after 28 minutes, and when the half-time break came, Watergrasshill were ahead on a score line of 0-9 to 1-10. Given the strength of the breeze, a 4-point lead seemed to be about reflective of how tight the game was. 

Within 9 minutes of the restart the game was level 0-13 to 1-10, Carrigaline made good use of the breeze registering the first 3 unanswered scores of the 2nd half. Points were traded over the next 10 minutes with the score being level on 0-17 to 1-14. It was evident at this point, that the hill had to work much harder for their scores however into the breeze, where Carrigaline’s wind-assisted clearances bypassed half of the field of play. The pivotal score of the game came in the 24th minute of the second half. After one of many rucks for possession in midfield, the ball was thrown in, straight through the assembled group who were awaiting the restart, to an unsuspecting, unmarked Carrigaline player behind the group, who promptly struck the ball to the edge of the square where it was dispatched into Foley’s net. We did reply with a further point on 25 mins to bring the gap back to 2 points, however Carrigaline managed to add a further point to restore their 3-point margin to finish the game 1-18 to 1-15. 

Scorers for Watergrasshill Seán Desmond 0-10 (0-7 frees), Aiden Foley 1-01, Anthony Cronin 0-2, Seán Field 0-1, Chris Healy 0-1. 

Although the lads came out on the wrong side of the result on the day, there were lots of positives so credit to the lads for their efforts not just on the day but in the preceding weeks during the off season.

 Pitch Signage & Advertising Opportunity     

As we enter a new decade, we do so with great optimism and excitement here at Watergrasshill GAA Club. Later this decade we will celebrate our centenary year, which will be a special milestone. While it's important to celebrate the past and the history of the club, it’s also important we look forward to the future. With this in mind, the club will shortly be undertaking a development project, to prepare the club for the future and further position ourselves at the center of our community. Part of this project will be the development of our existing club grounds. To that end we will endeavor to raise a revenue stream from advertising, while giving businesses the opportunity to advertise their services and reach a wider audience within our community. With the playing numbers on the increase our facility will be a busy spot over the coming years, and we would love to have your name and business positioned in the hearts and minds of all those who visit on a weekly basis. We are offering advertising space via pitch signage, 3000mm wide x 750mm high. These are a 5-year gloss laminate, flash mounted to 0.2mm skin diabond sign. If you would be interested in this opportunity to advertise and support our club, please contact Claire O Leary on 087-6239297 or any member of the club who can provide assistance
