The club would like to offer a massive congratulations to the Abbeyfeale U11’s who won the Munster Community Games on Saturday (4th July) at the UL Arena, Limerick, defeating a strong Clare side in the final by 3 tries to nil. Here is the match report from the day’s events:

MATCH REPORT FROM FINALS DAY IN UL:

Cometh the hour, cometh the men!! A statement that very much resonates with today’s achievements. Saturday the 4th of July 2015 will forever more be fondly itched into the minds of this group of young men. For us old ‘geezers’, the date perhaps signifies more about Independence Day, but for one special group though, it will be remembered fondly as the day when their hard work, commitment and collective effort earned them the right to be crowned as Munster Community Games champions…..It has a nice ring to it doesn’t it?? In a journey that started off just over seven weeks ago, the lads quest for glory began in earnest when they upset the odds at Dooradoyle, first defeating pre-tournament favourites, Regional, before claiming the scalp of Killmallock/Bruff in the final, to advance to today’s finals.

On entering the grounds of the UL Arena, one could have been forgiven if fear came to the forefront of one’s mind, with many of the players having never been at this stage of the competition before. However, their youthful exuberance and fearlessness shone brightly through, when the lads, representing Limerick, recorded an emphatic 9 tries to 4 victory over Cork in the first semi final. A brace of tries from Culann Quigley, Cian Harnett and Jack O’Sullivan gave the lads a strong foothold against their Cork counterparts, while further tries from Michael Kilbridge and twins Nathan and Dylan Murphy sealed a marvellous and deserving victory for the lads.

With Clare recording victory in the second semi final, the lads switched their focus to the task at hand. Clare, who were seeking their third Munster Championship in a row, understandably came into the contest as favourites. However, Abbey’s journey along the way thus far had seen them cause an upset or two. Betting against such a feat occurring again would have taken either a brave or stupid man. Having impressed in their previous matches leading up to this occasion, it was the final that proved to both the management team and to the loyal supporters, of the exceptional talent that these young men possess. Clare were quick to race out of the blocks, forcing the lads to desperately defend their line. With Clare camping on our line for the first 5 minutes, Abbey’s defence was defiant in it’s resistance. Indeed, Abbey’s sheer commitment to the clause can be further highlighted through the selfless act of Jack O’Sullivan, when he wrote himself into Abbeyfeale RFC folklore, when he put in a massive hit to stop a certain try. However, O’Sullivan’s heroics soon turned to worry though when the ambulance had to be called, but thankfully he recovered, but played no further part in the contest as a precaution. After a 15 minute delay and with the team seeming to be visibly upset, the lads looked to be in trouble, with Clare coming with wave after wave of attack. However, Clare’s efforts were thwarted by a committed and stern defence. Abbey’s breakthrough came though when an Oisin Woulfe break-away saw him run the length of the field to leave the lads heading into the half time interval with a one try to nil lead.

Buoyed by their lead at half time, albeit a slender one, the lads returned to the field looking to close out the contest. However, Clare, two time previous winners of this competition, were more than determined to turn the tide in their favour. Their area of attack was proving to be testing on the lads at times, but their innate belief and determination were willing the lads on to compete. Captain Marc Nolan led the way for his troops when both he and Culann Quigley made huge tackles to repel Clare’s advances. Abbey needed to considerably up the ante after a somewhat stop-start display and did so when a tremendous, well worked play was executed by Oisin Woulfe, who dived over for his second try of the day, leaving the lads with a commanding two try lead. With time running out for the Banner county, they desperately sought to close the gap. However, a try from Cian Harnett towards the end all but sealed their faith, leaving the lads to claim a momentous victory in a truly remarkable day.

In what was a hot day, tired bodies were evident at the end, but their commitment in every facet of their play was immense. The fairytale run in this competition continues for the lads and they should take encouragement into the All Ireland Finals in Athlone, after the manner in which they defeated both Cork and Clare in the earlier rounds, when the odds were very much heavily stacked against them.

In what proved to be a gallant effort from all of the lads, a strong teamwork ethic shone throughout the tournament resulting in a marvellous and well deserved victory. The lads now progress to the next stage where they will have the honour of representing Munster in the All Ireland finals. And who would bet against the lads of causing another upset or two along the way?? The club would like to thank all of the players, coaches and parents involved in what turned out to be a successful and well organised competition. The future of the club is looking very much promising with talent shining throughout!! Who knows?? We could be seeing the next Conor Murray or Johnny Sexton. Congrats lads!!
