The Harps Senior hurlers are through to the county final after a hard fought win over over a strong Rosenallis outfit. Played in Mountrath in excellent hurling conditions and in front of a large and vocal crowd The Harps produced their best performance to date to seal their place in the final.

This game was a tight and tough affair right from the start with Richie Saunders opening the scoring with a good point from play. A minute later some excellent team play saw the ball fall to Eoin Clancy who broke two tackles before sending a rasping shot to the back of the net. Rosenallis responded with two points of their own but further scores from Ciaran Comerford and John Brophy pushed The Harps further in front.

The men in green were really up for this however, and a string of scores showed they were not going to fade away. An excellent side-line cut from Saunders split the posts before a fine effort from the left wing by Conor Brophy drew applause from the crowd. Mick Lanigan was nailing the free’s and struck another two to give our lads a commanding lead. The teams both pointed from play just before half time to give The Harps a hard-earned lead on a score-line of 1-9 to 0-6.

The first few minutes of the second half were going to be crucial and to their credit The Harps showed their hunger and registered the first four points with Saunders, Clancy and Lanigan firing over, but the pick of them was a monster effort from nearly 100 yards by the outstanding Podge Delaney. Rosenallis heads refused to drop and another string of scores kept them in the hunt.

Scores from play were becoming increasingly hard to get as the tackling from both sides was ferocious, but Clancy and John Brophy managed another point apiece under intense pressure. The sides traded scores now as Lanigan converted another free but then Rosenallis got the major they badly needed as the sliotar was scrambled to The Harps net. Another point for the men in green cut the deficit to six points and this game was far from over.

The next score was vital and who else but John Brophy nailed it with a smart finish to stop the rot. Rosenallis pointed from distance but that would be as close as they would get as another Saunders point and two more free’s from Lanigan ended the scoring to leave The Harps ahead on a scoreline of 1-20 to 1-11. This was a real team performance from our lads and while scoring 1-20 is an impressive feat, it was the work ethic which impressed their large support.

This was a highly motivated and well trained Rosenallis outfit, but The Harps players gave an exhibition of hooking, blocking and turning over possession. All this and more will be needed in the final however as a strong Portlaoise side will be very hard to beat.

The Harps Junior A hurlers are through to the championship semi-final after defeating Borris/Kilcotton in their championship quarter-final last Friday. Played in the Borris-In-Ossory pitch, a strong cross field breeze made shooting conditions difficult, but after an even opening 10 minutes The Harps powered past their opposition.

Two goals in a 5 minute spell by Gareth Singh seemed to break the B/K resistance and with Conor Brophy and Brian Clancy bossing matters in the middle third The Harps ended the game as a contest with further scores from Brophy, Evan Deegan, Niall Brophy and Shane Donoghue to claim a 3-10 to 0-5 half time lead.

The message at half time was to go out and win the second half and credit to The Harps they did not let complacency set in. B/K still had pride to play for and a few early free’s split the posts to give them some early hope. With Paraic Dunne and Danny Delahunty rock solid as the spine of The Harps defence however, the goals that B/K needed to really get back into the game were denied time after time. While The Harps would not claim a fourth major, points sailed over from all angles as Eoghan Doheny, Shane Donoghue and Conor Brophy pushed the scoreline out to finash at 3-21 to 0-9.

This was an impressive performance by The Harps but tougher tests lie ahead as a strong Mountmellick team awaits in the semi-final which will be played on 9th of September in Shanahoe at 6.30pm.

The Harps:
1.Justin Brophy; 2.Sean Cahill; 3.Paraic Dunne; 4.Eoin O Sullivan; 5.Cathal Phelan; 6.Danny Delahunty; 7.John Dunne; 8.Conor Brophy; 9.Eoghan Doheny; 10.Shane Donoghue; 11.Rory Moore; 12.Brian Clancy; 13.Niall Brophy; 14.Gareth Singh; 15.Evan Deegan.

Subs: Ciaran Costigan for Sean Cahill, Alan O Connell for John Dunne, Shane Brophy for Evan Deegan, John Lawless for Niall Brophy.

The Harps travelled to Borris-in-Ossory on Saturday evening to face a Colt Gaels side desperately needing a win to qualify for the latter stages of the Championship. The Harps were seeking a win to guarantee a Semi-Final place and to keep their momentum going following two wins from two games in the qualifying group – a loss would only guarantee a quarter final berth.

Following a warm day, the conditions were good for hurling as the cloud from storm Ernesto spilled in just in time to keep the sun out of the eyes. A breeze picked up throughout the game, providing assistance to The Harps side in the first half, but made point taking quite tricky in the second half. A good crowd attended the game making for a lively atmosphere.

Colt Gaels started brightly, lobbing over a free into the light breeze from the stick of Chris Murray. The Harps though settled quickly and reeled off several points from the sticks of Ciaran Comerford, Ronan Delahunty and John Brophy to put The Harps 0-03 to 0-01 ahead in as many minutes. The next five minutes saw Michael “Sticks” Lanigan reel over three points from frees as Colt had no answer to the dominance of The Harps. Eoin Clancy and Conor Deegan tagged on two more scores from play and with just ten minutes gone, things were looking ominous for Colt.

In the thirteenth minute Colt managed another free from Murray who was deadly accurate into the breeze. However, his free-taking opponent Michael Lanigan was equally as accurate and showed his class in firing over two long-range frees, one from his own 21yd line that was captured on video – see below:

Colt’s Chris Murray replied with two frees for Colt in what was a ten minute spell of the battle of the free-takers. John Brophy grabbed his second point of the game in the twenty first minute from play to push The Harps eight points clear on 0-12 to 0-04. The next five minutes saw the free-takers take over – Lanigan firing over yet another long-range effort while his counterpart Chris Murray popped over two points.

Points from Ronan Delahunty, Eoin Clancy and two frees from Lanigan saw The Harps finish the opening half on a very strong run and clocking up an impressive 0-17 to 0-06 lead.

The opening ten minutes of the second half was a completely different story though as the breeze that had assisted The Harps in the first half, was now a hindrance as it increased in strength. Colt Gaels capitalised on their new found friend and fired over five unanswered points – three frees. In the 43rd minute, Michael Lanigan opened the scoring for The Harps in this second half with another pointed free following a substitution which saw Pat Walshe being replaced with David Doheny. 

The next five minutes saw Colt Gaels edge closer with a point from play and a pointed free either side of another Lanigan free. At this stage, manager Fintan Deegan called Darren Maher ashore and Ross Young came on in the full forward position. Michael Lanigan won a free in the middle of the park and his effort hit the upright and fell into the path of John Brophy who snapped at a goal – however his effort was saved and Ross Young gathered the rebound on the corner of the square and blasted to the net from a tight angle to put The Harps ahead on 1-19 to 0-14.

At this point, the Colt Gaels’ resurgance was over and the game as a contest petered out. Lanigan added a further free and a big cheer went up for Ross Young who added a point following his earlier major to see The Harps run out comfortable winners on a 1-21 to 0-14 scoreline. The Harps management will be happy with the performance and to have achieved a semi-final spot which could possibly be against Portlaoise on the 22nd of September should they advance in their quarter final.

The Harps: 1 – Peter Walsh; 2 – Shane Phelan; 3 – Conor Dunne; 4 – Tommy Moore; 5 – Pat Walshe; 6 – Padraig Delaney; 7 – Daniel Comerford; 8 – Shane Fitzpatrick; 9 – Ronan Delahunty; 10 – Conor Deegan;  11 – Michael Lanigan; 12 – Ciaran Comerford; 13 – John Brophy; 14 – Eoin Clancy; 15 – Darren Maher.

Scorers: Michael Lanigan 0-11 (0-10f); Ross Young 1-01; Ronan Delahunty 0-02; John Brophy 0-02; Eoin Clancy 0-02; Ciaran Comerford 0-01; Conor Deegan 0-01; Padraig Delaney 0-01.

The Harps welcomed Abbeyleix to Durrow for this first round of the Junior A Hurling Championship. It was a fine evening for hurling with temperatures into the mid-20s accompanied with calm conditions under a cloudy sky. However, the ongoing drought conditions meant a very hard playing surface for both teams. 

Abbeyleix were quickest of the mark and registered their first point from a free in the first minute and it took a further five minutes for another score in a low-scoring first half. That score came for The Harps from the stick of Conor Brophy who commanded the midfield along side Danny Delahunty.

In the mid-part of this first half, both teams traded points from placed ball with Brian Clancy on target for the homeside. In the twenty-first minute the first green flag of the game was raised when Garth Singh broke through the Abbeyleix defence and blasted to the net. Abbeyleix responded with two pointed frees before half time to leave the score at just 1-02 to 0-04 at the short whistle with both sides guilty of some wayward shooting.

The second half opened strong for The Harps with a point from play by Fionn Whelan who was causing the Abbeyleix defence all sorts of trouble. Indeed, Niall Brophy pointed moments later from play, however referee Anthony Costigan over-ruled his umpire and scratched the score. Abbeyleix scored a point from play in the third minute, as the tempo of the game increased and accuracy improved. The next five minutes proved prosperous for The Harps as they hit four unanswered points in a row – Conor Brophy getting a brace (one from a free, one from play) and Brian Clancy and Niall Brophy pointing from play to give The Harps a five point lead heading into the middle of the second half.

Abbeyleix got two points from play to keep in touch and at this stage, an injured Pauric Dunne was replaced by Evan Deegan mid way through this second half. In the forty-seventh minute The Harps got a much needed boost when Niall Brophy scored a cracker of a goal to open up a six point lead. Even Deegan followed up with a long range point from the resulting puckout and Abbeyleix looked destined to receive a hiding. However, credit to Abbeyleix as they battled back hard and scored 2-01 in the last ten minutes, however it wasn’t enough as an Evan Deegan free and two points from play by Eoghan Doheny and Garth Singh made for a three point winning margin at the full time whistle: The Harps 2-11 v 2-08 Abbeyleix.

The Harps will find out on Monday morning, who, where and when they will play the second round of the Championship.

1 – Justin Brophy; 2 – Eoin Sullivan; 3 – Sean Cahill; 4 – Ciaran Costigan; 5 – John Dunne; 6 – Daniel Delahunty;  7 – Cathal Phelan; 8 – Conor Brophy; 9 – Eoghan Doheny; 10 – Brian Clancy; 11 – Rory Moore; 12 – Pauric Dunne; 13 – Garth Singh; 14 – Fionn Whelan; 15 – Niall Brophy. Subs: Evan Deegan for Pauric Dunne (injured) 47mins.

The Harps Senior Hurlers started their championship campaign with a comfortable ten point victory over Shanahoe/Ballypickas on Friday evening. Played in Rathdowney on a nice evening for hurling, The Harps started with the breeze at their backs but endured a nervous opening 5 minutes.

Indeed it was S/B who opened the scoring with a point before a long range effort from Shane Fitzpatrick settled The Harps. With the early jitters gone, The Harps hit 1-04 without reply as their purple patch threatened to end the game as a contest. Two long range frees by Mick Lanigan pushed our lads ahead before smart play by Ciaran Comerford set up John Brophy to goal from close range.

Ciaran then added a point from play before another free was slotted by Lanigan. Credit to S/B though who refused to wilt and hit 5 points themselves to get right back into the game with Lanigan and Brophy tagging further points for The Harps. A tough task was to become a mountain to climb for S/B however when their wing forward received a straight red card for an off the ball incident.

Another Comerford point and a goal from Richie Saunders after some sublime skill from John Brophy, gave the scoreboard a far better look at half time, reading The Harps 2-09 S/B 0-07.

Scores were traded freely as the second half started with Lanigan continuing to punish any indiscipline as The Harps began to dominate. Eoin Clancy and Richie Saunders sent over fine scores from play while in defence Podge Delaney was hoovering up every loose ball as the spare man. The industrious work of midfielders David Doheny and Ronan Delahunty was rewarded with a point apiece from play as the game neared the final whistle.

It was left to Eoin Clancy to finish off the scoring however and it is great to see Eoin back after an unlucky run of injuries. The final whistle sounded to leave the score standing at The Harps 2-19 S/B 0-15. This was a very encouraging display by The Harps who have worked extremely hard in training all year. The fitness and work-rate were exemplary and if they can become more disciplined in the tackle they will be a tough team to beat.

The Harps: 1.Ross Young. 2.Shane Phelan. 3.Conor Dunne. 4.Tommy Moore. 5.Shane Fitzpatrick. 6.Padraig Delaney. 7.Daniel Comerford. 8.David Doheny. 9.Ronan Delahunty. 10.Darren Maher. 11.Richie Saunders. 12.Mick Lanigan. 13.Conor Deegan. 14.John Brophy. 15.Ciaran Comerford.

The Harps Junior A hurlers, plying their trade in Division 2 of the league welcomed Clough-Ballacolla to Durrow on Thursday night last in the sixth round of the league. Clough-Ballacolla who are top of the table came to Durrow with four wins and a draw against opposition elsewhere in this division. The Harps on the other hand had picked up two wins against Castletown and Shanahoe were needing a win here to have any chance of making the league semi-final.

It was a fine evening with light winds making conditions ideal for hurling, and indeed a thriller of a game ensued from the throw-in. After six minutes, both sides were level at 0-03 a piece with Gareth Singh, Eoghan Doheny and Ross Young all pointing from play as both sides were impeccable in their long range shooting efforts. Over the following eight minutes, Clough-Ballacolla added three further points from play, but Ross Young kept the home side in it with a ’65 and two frees converted to see out the first quarter.

The Harps then seemed to switch off for the next twelve minutes as Clough-Ballacolla scored at will in a very intense purple patch that yielded 3-06 for the visitors putting the homeside 15 points in arrears – the scoreline: The Harps 0-06 v 3-12 Clough-Ballacolla with just four minutes remaining in the half. The Harps management though encouraged the team to ignore the scoreboard and battle hard, and indeed The Harps did. In the 26th minute, Eoghan Doheny carved out a beautiful goal from play that lifted the homeside’s morale. From the resulting puck-out The Harps went on the attack again and when Garth Singh was pulled down on the edge of the square, Ross Young buried the ball to the net to continue the comeback. Half time: The Harps 2-06 v 3-12 Clough-Ballacolla.

In the second half The Harps continued their comeback, firstly with a pointed Ross Young free, then Garth Singh and Pauric Dunne both raised green flags followed by a Shane Donoghue point from play to leave the homeside just a point in arrears with only five minutes gone in the half! (The Harps 4-08 v 3-12 Clough-Ballacolla). Following that score, the management introduced Michael Lanigan for Rory Moore. Clough-Ballacolla scored a point from play soon after as they sought to stave off this strong Harps comeback, however the resulting long range puckout was worked to Garth Singh who was pulled down on the edge of the square and up stepped Ross Young to plant the ball to the net and give the homeside the lead – The Harps 5-08 v 3-13 Clough-Ballacolla.

Clough-Ballacolla replied with a point from play before Ciaran Costigan replaced Darren Maher for the homeside. Ross Young continued to dominate the scoresheet with a ’65 in the forty fourth minute as the game entered a nip-and-tuck phase. Eoghan Doheny, Ross Young and Michael Lanigan all pointed from play over the next ten minutes whilst Clough-Ballacolla managed just two points from play in this period giving the homeside support great hope of grabbing a win as the clock wound down with a two point lead. However, Clough-Ballacolla staged a massive comeback and with two minutes of normal time remaining, they grabbed a goal and scored two further points from play to go back in front. 

On the stroke of full time, Michael Lanigan won a free on the edge of the square, however his shot went agonisingly over the bar by inches to leave two between the sides again. Into injury time Clough-Ballacolla grabbed three unanswered points from play to run out five point winners on a scoreline of The Harps 5-13 v 4-21 Clough-Ballacolla. Overall, The Harps can be proud of their hard work in clawing back a fifteen point deficit and going two points in front, however they will be equally disappointed in losing this tie after such an incredible turnaround. The Harps travel to Trumera next Wednesday, June 20th for a 7.30pm throw-in as this Division 2 League enters it’s final round.

The Harps: 1 – Liam Dunphy; 2 – Cathal Phelan; 3 – Sean Cahill; 4 – Eoin Sullivan; 5 – Conor Brophy; 6 – Daniel Delahunty; 7 – John Dunne; 8 – Padraig Dunne; 9 – Brian Clancy; 10 – Ross Young; 11 – Rory Moore; 12 – Eoghan Doheny; 13 – Garth Singh; 14 – Shane Donohue; 15 – Darren Maher.

Subs: 38mins off: Rory Moore – on: Michael Lanigan; 43mins off: Darren Maher – on: Ciaran Costigan.

Scorers: Ross Young 2-07  (2-05f); Eoghan Doheny 1-02; Garth Singh 1-01; Padraig Dunne 1-00; Michael Lanigan 0-02 (0-01f); Shane Donohue 0-01.

The Harps Senior hurlers welcomed Camross to Durrow on Thursday May 3rd for this fifth round of the Laois GAA Division 1 Hurling League. The Harps had an unbeaten run into this tie with three wins and a draw from their opening rounds whilst Camross also had three wins, but suffered an earlier round loss to Borris-Kilcotton to sit third behind The Harps on the table. It was a dull overcast evening with some mist at times, however this did not affect the game as both sides gave a very entertaining match:

Camross were first of the mark and ran up three unanswered frees in the opening ten minutes. The Harps though did settle and in the eleventh minute Michael Lanigan opened the home-side’s account with a converted free. The Harps began to settle and take control of the game at this stage as the intensity took off. Conor Deegan scored a fine pint from play out on the ’65 to nudge the Harps closer in the 18th minute and Lanigan levelled affairs in the twentieth minute with another free: 0-03 to 0-03 a piece.

The final ten minutes of this first half saw Camross re-assert themselves in the scoring stakes with a couple of scores in two minutes from play. The Harps battled hard throughout with Doheny and Phelan imposing in the defence and clearing ball up the field to launch attack after attack for The Harps. The homeside though were unable to capitalise and indeed were most unfortunate to have a goal chance glaze millimeters wide in the run up to half time. The resulting puckout had The Harps back on the attack again and Eoin Clancy earned a free that was converted by Lanigan to reduce the lead to the minimum. However, Camross finished stronger with a point from play and a converted ’65 to restore their three point margin at the short whistle: Camross 0-07 v 0-04 The Harps.

The second half began with Camross upping the ante and in the space of two minutes had three unanswered points from play to give The Harps a monumental challenge to overcome. The Harps rose to the occasion though and cut the visitors’ lead to four as Lanigan added a point from play before converting a free. Camross though came storming back and fired over a free of their own followed up with a point from play – all of this inside the opening seven minutes had both sets of supporters on their feet as each team gave it their all.

The next ten minutes was a very tit-for-tat affair as both teams refused to give in and each side traded point for point. Shane Fitzpatrick added his name to the scoresheet with a fantastic long range point from play out in the middle of the field. Camross replied with a point from play before Lanigan who was immense on frees all evening long converted another. Again Camross replied, however John Brophy found himself unusually unmarked out on the half forward line where he pointed from a tight angle to keep The Harps within five points. 

The Harps management looked to the bench to freshen things up and Eoin Doheny came on to replace Pat Walshe who battled hard in the full forward line. Camross though stretched their lead by two before Pauric Dunne pointed a fine point from the middle of the park. The Harps then made another change with Ross Young replacing Conor Brophy. Camross then hit a purple patch around the fiftieth minute mark with a point from play followed up with the game’s first goal – despite Peter Walsh’s save, the rebound was easily tapped in to give the visitors a ten point lead. Camross then stretched their lead further with a point from a free in the 54th minute.

The Harps management then introduced Brian Clancy for Conor Deegan and with just five minutes left on the clock, The Harps dug deep and battled immensely in search of scores. Michael Lanigan pointed a free in the 56th minute which was followed up by a point from play by Boggy in the 57th – Brophy created this chance all on his own, taking the ball on along the sideline before cutting in toward goal and releasing the trigger. In the last minute of the game, Lanigan won a ball on the end line, broke through two tackles and from the tightest of angles rifled the sliothar to the net to raise a green flag and cut the deficit to six points. However, any chance of a comeback was stopped with the full time whistle moments later: The Harps 1-12 v 1-18 Camross.

The Harps overall will be a little disappointed with the result as their performances on the field of play was much greater than the sum of their scores. Every player, including the subs battled greatly and perhaps with a bit of luck and little tightening up on giving away easy frees, this result could have been alot closer. The Harps will travel to Ballacolla on May 27th for the next round of the Laois GAA League, however – a Leinster GAA League semi-final is due to take place on May 12th – so another game to look forward to before the local derby takes place.

The Harps: 1 – Peter Walsh; 2 – David Doheny; 3 – Daniel Comerford; 4 – Shane Phelan; 5 – Conor Brophy; 6 – John Prior; 7 – Ronan Delahunty; 8 – Richie Saunders; 9 – Padraic Dunne; 10 – Shane Fitzpatrick; 11 – Pat Walshe; 12 – Conor Deegan; 13 – Michael Lanigan; 14 – John Brophy; 15 – Eoin Clancy.

Subs: 46th minute: Eoin Doheny for Pat Walshe; 49th minute: Ross Young for Conor Brophy; 55th minute: Brian Clancy for Conor Deegan.

The Harps welcomed Rathdowney-Errill to Durrow on Sunday April 15th in this fourth round tie of the Laois GAA Hurling League Division 1. It was a breezy day with some passing showers that made for some difficult conditions at times and as a result scoring was limited, with both teams enjoying wind assistance in opposing halves.

The Harps had the wind to their backs in the first half and quickly opened up a two point lead with Pat Walshe opening the scoreboard from a sideline followed shortly after with a well taken Michael Lanigan free. Such was the effect of the wind that it took Rathdowney-Errill almost ten minutes to register their first score – a free from forty yards out that was converted.

The Harps were playing very well at this stage of the game and were dictating the pace to their opponents who struggled at times to keep into the intensity. Podge Delaney was especially strong in the half back line consistently clearing ball and booming it down on the Rathdowney-Errill defence where Ciaran Comerford and John Brophy were running hard and asking questions. Eoin Clancy and Boggy scored points from play either side of a Ciaran Comerford free to go 0-05 to 0-01 up after twenty minutes.

The final ten minutes of the first half saw Rathdowney-Errill score two points, one of those from a free before Ciaran Comerford fired over his second free of the day to leave the half time score at 0-06 to 0-03. The beginning of the second half was a dream start for The Harps with John Brophy firing to the net after a clever passage of play from Lanigan.

It took another fifteen minutes for a score as both teams became guilty of poor shooting in the strong wind and indeed frustrations set in with the referee on hand to quell arguments between the teams which resulted in a stoppage in play for two minutes. However, things cooled off and both teams resumed the game with Rathdowney-Errill grabbing a point from play midway through the half. 

The Harps management looked to the bench to freshen things up soon after and brought on Pauric Dunne for Eoin Clancy. Rathdowney-Errill though were starting to take command of the game at this stage and scored a point from play to reduce the deficit to four points. Michael Lanigan took over free duties and landed his second free in the forty-ninth minute to restore a five point lead for The Harps.

However, the last ten minutes of the game was all about the Rathdowney-Errill comeback as they scored four frees and a point from play to leave the full time scoreline at 1-07 to 0-10. Michael Lanigan was replaced by Conor Brophy with only a few minutes left on the clock, but The Harps will rue missed frees that could have won the game, equally though they’ll be pleased with a draw as Rathdowney-Errill had two chances to win this game in the dying minutes, only to hit wides much to the delight of the home crowd in attendance.

The Harps maintain pole position in the League with seven points from their opening four games and have a break until May 6th when they will welcome Camross to Durrow for the fifth round.

The Harps: 1 – Peter Walsh; 2 – David Doheny; 3 – Daniel Comerford; 4 – Shane Phelan; 5 – John Prior; 6 – Padraig Delaney; 7 – Shane Fitzpatrick; 8 – Ronan Delahunty; 9 – Richie Saunders; 10 – Eoin Clancy; 11 – Conor Deegan; 12 – Pat Walshe; 13 – Ciaran Comerford; 14 – John Brophy; 15 – Michael Lanigan.

Substitutions made: 46mins off: Eoin Clancy on: Padraic Dunne; 57mins off: Michael Lanigan  on: Conor Brophy.

Scorers: John Brophy  1-01; Michael Lanigan 0-02f; Ciaran Comerford 0-02f; Pat Walshe 0-01; Eoin Clancy 0-01.
