Jersey Day at Coláiste Mhuire Johnstown ahead of All-Ireland Hurling Final

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

In keeping with tradition, Ms Sheehan’s annual Jersey Day will take place today, (Friday 2nd September 2016) before Sunday’s All-Ireland hurling final.  This annual school event has in the past raised much needed funds & awareness for Ireland’s sporting charity, GOAL.  In fact, over €700 was raised last year so a big THANK YOU to everyone who has participated and donated to this very worthy cause over the years.

However, in a temporary departure, the benefactors of today’s event is the school’s Sports Fund which will go towards the running cost of our many successful teams including Hurling, Camogie, Football, Soccer, Basketball, Badminton, Handball, Athletics and Archery.

With both Kilkenny & Tipperary contesting this year’s All-Ireland Hurling final there was no shortage of colour on show from both Students & Staff!  As illustrated from the photo of our 1st years below, everyone got behind their county or other sporting teams they are connected with.  Any students who did not have a jersey as such wore suitable colours in keeping with the theme.

Coláiste Mhuire Win Leinster Senior Hurling Title!

Friday, February 26th, 2016

Congratulations to the players and management involved in today’s historic victory over St Mary’s C.B.S. Enniscorthy (Wexford).  The prize was the Leinster Post-Primary Schools Senior Hurling “B” Rest of Leinster shield and the game was played in MW Hire Park, Dunmore with referee Anthony Stapleton (Laois).

The C.B.S. started the brighter and led 0.03:0.02 after 10 minutes but the Johnstown lads settled mid-way through the half and were deserving of their 0.05:0.03 half time lead.

The St Mary’s boys again started the second half brighter and levelled matters at 0.05 a piece after 5 minutes.  However, they were to be held scoreless for the remainder of the game while Coláiste Mhuire kept the score board ticking over at regular intervals.  The result of which saw Coláiste Mhuire finish worthy winners on a 0.09:0.05 scoreline.

Afterwards, former Kilkenny hurler and Johnstown native Pat Henderson presented captain David Doheny (Harps GAA, Laois) with the Leinster Post-Primary Schools Senior Hurling “B” Rest of Leinster shield.

The management and players would like to thank everyone from the school community and neighbouring clubs who have supported them to date. They now go on to contest the All-Leinster final versus Ard Scoil Rís (Dublin 8) on Monday, 7th March at a venue to be decided.   Continued and increased support of our team would be greatly appreciated.

Coláiste Mhuire defeat Scoil Aireagail in Junior Football

Monday, December 21st, 2015

Our Junior Footballers (U16) recorded an impressive victory over a gallant Scoil Aireagail Ballyhale side in the Kilkenny-Carlow section of the South Leinster Football Championship.  Having already accounted for Carlow Vocational School, the Coláiste Mhuire lads were looking to keep their 100% record heading into the Christmas holidays.

Captain Karl Campion (Gornahoe-Glengoole) wisely elected to play against the breeze in the first half.  This aided Ballyhale initially and they registered the first score of the day, a point by their full forward.  However, once Coláiste Mhuire got settled they brought the game to Ballyhale and were rewarded with a goal from Emerald’s Liam Grant.  Vice-captain Eoghan Doheny (Harps) finished off a well worked move to score a neat point to open up a 1.01 : 0.01 lead after 10 minutes.

With Coláiste Mhuire gaining a stronghold in midfield through the hard work of Conor Madden (Rathdowney-Erril) and David Nolan (Gortnahoe-Glengoole), they had a solid platform to launch their attacks from.  This provided plenty of ball to full forward Podge Delaney (Harps) who finished the half with 3 points from play.  Delaney also assisted in a second major for the Johnstown lads when his effort for a point came back off the post and corner forward Dominik Frazcek (Fenians) reacted quickest to slot the ball home.  Ballyhale responded with another point and were unlucky not to register again, due in no small part to the solid defending and pressure from the Coláiste Mhuire backs.  The score of the half came from attacking wing-back Padraic Dunne (Harps) whose tireless support runs were rewarded when he slotted over a point after some great inter-changes of passing and over-lapping runs involving his midfield and half-forward teammates.  Coláiste Mhuire now had a deserving 2.05:0.02 lead at half-time.

The second half would prove difficult for Ballyhale as they played into a strong breeze but they stuck manfully to their task.  Indeed, they were unlucky not to raise a green flag on a number of occasions in both halves.  Credit here must go to the Coláiste Mhuire goalkeeper Calvin Ryan (Emeralds) for both his shot stopping and high fielding, when a number of efforts for points dropped short in the wind.  The Johnstown defense were conceding little space and their tackling was firm but fair, avoiding the concession of scorable frees.  Ballyhale managed just two more points through no shortage of endeavor but both the Johnstown lads and the elements weren’t kind.

At the other end, the pick of the scores were two long range points by midfielder David Nolan that came at important stages of the half.  His first after Ballyhale had enjoyed an extended period of possession, and his second mid-way through the half really deflated the opposition.  From here there was only one winner and the Johnstown forwards closed out the game.  Liam Grant & Dominik Frazcek doubled their tallies with a second goal each.  Podge Delaney concluded the scoring when he raised a green flag to add to his first half points. Full Time Score:  Coláiste Mhuire Johnstown 5.07:0.04 Scoil Aireagail Ballyhale

Overall, it was a solid performance from Coláiste Mhuire considering the time of the year and conditions.  Both the team the started and all the subs that were introduced were a credit to the cause.  However, improvement will be needed to progress in this competition.  Our next game is a South Leinster Quarter Final against our Laois neighbours St Fergal’s (Rathdowney).  This game is fixed for Monday, 18th January in Johnstown.  Training will recommence on Thursday, 7th January at Lunch time and on appointed days.  All panel members are expected to attend to be considered for selection by Mr J Dunne (manager), Mr J O’Grady (selector) & Mr J Lowry (coach).

Team & Scorers:  Calvin Ryan, Eamon Fogarty, Ryan Murphy, Padraig Donnelly, Ben Tallis, Karl Campion (captain), Padraic Dunne (0.01), Conor Madden, David Nolan (0.02), Eoghan Doheny (vice-captain, 0.01), Liam Grant (2.00), Gary O’Sullivan, Dominic Frazcek (2.00), Podge Delaney (1.03), Nathan Ryan.  Subs used:  Tony Lee Donoghue, Cathal O’Leary, Ricky Burke, Aaron Okoroh, Rory Kenny, Eoin Delaney, Michael O’Mahony & Jordan Burke.
