Camross proved to be too strong for The Harps in this Intermediate hurling championship replay played in Rathdowney G.A.A grounds last Tuesday, July 28th. Like the first game, there was a strong wind blowing down the pitch and again The Harps had the wind advantage for the first half. The sides traded scores for much of the first half, but unfortunately for The Harps the radars were a bit off on the night as too many efforts were sent wide in the first half. A couple of brilliant saves from Peter Walsh in goal kept The Harps in the hunt but facing into a three point deficit and the wind into their faces for the second was going to be a huge challenge for The Harps.

With the wind at their backs Camross opened the second half scoring with a point from play. They were not about to let the game slip this time and dropped back a forward to midfield and The Harps struggled to get ball into their forwards. The Harps were going to need a couple of goals to get a result here but thy as they might the Camross defence held tight and the margin was increased as Camross sent over point after point. The Harps fought to the end but it just wasn’t their day as Camross finished strongly to leave the final score at Camross 0-17, The Harps 0-08.

The Harps: 1.Peter Walsh;  2.Cathal Phelan;  3.Sean Cahill;  4.Niall Donoghue;  5.David Doheny;  6.Dan Delahunty;  7.John Dunne;  8.Rory Moore;  9.Eoin O Sullivan;  10.Brian Clancy;  11.Brian Farrell;  12.Tadgh O Sullivan;  13.Conor Deegan;  14.Tommy Dillon;  15.Niall Brophy.

The Harps Intermediates were out in the first round of championship last Sunday against Camross. Played in Rathdowney, The Harps won the coin toss and opted to play with a strong breeze at their backs in the opening half. This was not going to be a game of two contrasting halves however, as the teams traded scores for nearly the entirety of the match. The Harps relied on the free taking skills of Conor Deegan for much of the game, although to be fair The Harps forwards were being fouled any time they got into a threatening position. At the back the defence were holding out well and the teams went in at half time dead-locked, with the score board reading 0-8 each.

At half time The Harps knew that they needed to up the effort facing into the stiff breeze. The game continued in the same manner as the first half as very little separated the teams at any point. The only goal of the game was scored by Camross with ten minutes left and while this was a real sucker punch for our lads, they refused to yield and fought back into the game. A Conor Deegan free with normal time just up drew the sides level and supporters were in for a frantic finish. Camross launched attack after attack in search of a winner but the Harps defence held strong and when forward Conor Deegan came back to his own half to win a free out the ref blew the final whistle. A draw was the fairest result and both sides will fancy their chances in the replay. Full time score : The Harps 0-14 Camross 1-11.

A replay awaits both sides on Tuesday, July 28th in Rathdowney at 7.15pm.

With some players missing for The Harps on the day, competition for places should really drive this team on. Management appeal to all players to make a huge effort to make training, as The Harps are one of several teams capable of winning this championship.

The Harps: 1.Peter Walsh; 2.Cathal Phelan; 3.Sean Cahill; 4.Niall Donoghue; 5.David Doheny; 6.Dan Delahunty; 7.John Dunne; 8.Eoin O Sullivan; 9.Rory Moore; 10.Brian Clancy; 11.Brian Farrell; 12.Tadgh O Sullivan; 13.Niall Brophy; 14.Tommy Dillon; 15.Conor Deegan.

The Harps Intermediates put in a spirited performance last Friday, May 15th against Castletown in Durrow, but second half wides were to prove costly as Castletown held on for a deserved 0-12 to 0-06 win.

The first half was a very even affair with both teams defence on top. Free’s were the main source of scores for both sides and Conor Deegan was striking them well for The Harps. Indeed, Deegan accounted for all of The Harps first half tally of 0-05. The pick of these was an excellent effort from play midway through the half. Castletown kept in touch with several converted free’s of their own to leave the sides level at half time on a score line of 0-05 each.

The second half proved to be more one sided on the scoreboard, as The Harps accuracy betrayed them time and again. A single score from play from Greg Aylward was an unfair reward for a team that kept battling to the end. Things could have been very different, but this young team should learn from the experience. Castletown were a lot more clinical in front of the posts and shot 7 second half points to leave a final score line of Castletown 0-12 to The Harps 0-06.

With a lot of players exam tied it is tough going for this Harps Intermediate team at the moment but there is plenty of scope for improvement as the year goes on. The Intermediates face Shanahoe at home on Saturday, May 30th in Durrow at 7.30pm.

The Harps: 1.Peter Walsh; 2.Niall Donoghue; 3.Aaron Dunne; 4.Sean Cahill; 5.David Doheny; 6.John Dunne; 7.Darren Maher; 8.Colm Dunphy; 9.Conor Deegan; 10.Johnny Doyle; 11.Mick Lanigan; 12.Liam Dunphy; 13.Eoin O Sullivan; 14.William Dillon; 15.Rory Doyle.

The Harps Intermediate hurlers came up short against Camross last Thursday in the third round of the ACHL Division 2. Played in good hurling conditions in Camross, the first half was evenly matched as both sides produced some good hurling. It was The Harps who got off to a dream start when a long range shot from Conor Deegan went all the way to the net. Camross responded swiftly with a pointed free but The Harps were getting on top and a Deegan free was followed by a fine point from play by Darren Maher to increase the lead. Camross fought back well however, and a string of points from play followed by a goal from close range turned this game on it’s head. A Brian Farrell point from play kept The Harps in touch before Greg Aylward’s efforts were rewarded with a super score from play way out on the left wing. The final two scores of the half fell to Camross as their off the ball running was causing problems in the Harps defence. With a half time score of Camross 2-07 to The Harps 1-06, we were facing into a tough second half.

The introduction of Michael Lanigan and Kieran Freeman improved matters considerably early in the second half. With Freeman deployed as a third midfielder, The Harps gained a foothold in the middle third and their dominance here paid off as another good point from play by Greg Aylward was followed up by a brilliant goal from Darren Maher who’s shot from a tight angle went in off the far post. Camross sensed the game was slipping from them and their response was impressive as they shot 1-04 in a five minute spell, 0-02 coming from free’s. Brian Farrell and Greg Aylward posted further points for The Harps but with legs tiring, Camross pulled away shooting the last four points of the game to leave a score line of Camross 3-15, The Harps 2-09.

A good effort from the Intermediates who are without a number of exam tied players, nevertheless it is important that all players make every effort to get to training. Our next game is at home to Castletown, on the 15th of May.

ACHL2vPR-2015bAn under strength Harps intermediate team fought hard but couldn’t get the better of a determined Park-Rathineska side in the second round of the league last Thursday. Played in Durrow on a very warm evening, it was Park-Rathineska that opened the scoring with a point from play in the opening minute. A Greg Aylward free evened matters shortly after but with both defences on top scores were going to be hard to come by for the rest of the game. A soft free gavePark-Rathineska their second score but the only goal of the game would soon after go to The Harps when Greg Aylward’s penalty shot was deflected into the inner side-netting to give The Harps the lead. The home side were getting on top at this point in the game but some bad wides stopped them from extending that lead. A head injury to the Park-Rathineska goal keeper in the 15th minute halted our momentum and for the remainder of the half Park-Rathineska went up a gear to hit 4 points from play. The half time whistle saw Park-Rathineska ahead by two points, 0-06 to The Harps 1-01.

Again Park-Rathineska opened the second half scoring with a point from play quickly after the throw in. The Harps needed to respond and two points in as many minutes from Greg Aylward (0-01f) and a further point from play by Eoin O Sullivan had the sides level by the 42nd minute. This was as close as The Harps would get however, as a lack of discipline resulted in some needless frees conceded as Park-Rathineska went three points ahead. A fine score from Johnny Doyle, who was showing very well in the second half, was answered with two more Park-Rathineska points. The Harps needed a goal at this stage but some stout defending denied them time and again.

Greg Aylward pointed in the 31st minute to reduce the gap to three but the final whistle sounded to give Park-Rathineska a deserved win. A good effort from this Harps team, and perhaps a less lenient referee would have suited our younger and physically smaller team but Michael Ward did his best to let the game flow. Best on the day for The Harps were Peter Walsh, Shane Brophy, Johnny Doyle and Greg Aylward.

The Harps will play Camross in Camross on April 30th at 7.15pm.

The Harps: 1.Peter Walsh; 2.Sean Cahill; 3.Aaron Dunne; 4.Niall Donoghue; 5.David Doheny; 6.John Dunne; 7.Shane Brophy; 8.Rory Moore; 9.Conor Deegan; 10.Niall Brophy; 11.Brian Farrell; 12.Darren Maher; 13.Johnny Doyle; 14.Greg Aylward; 15.Eoin O Sullivan.

The Harps Intermediate hurlers got off to a great start in the league last Thursday with a 2-12 to 0-10 win over Mountmellick. Played in Mountmellick, with a strong wind blowing across the pitch, The Harps opened brightly with Greg Aylward, Niall Brophy and Shane Fitzpatrick pointing from play. With The Harps defence in a mean mood, Mountmellick relied on pointed free’s to keep them in contention. Midway through the first half the Mountmellick full back misread a long ball in and Tommy Dillon made no mistake, slipping in behind before unleashing an unstoppable shot to the roof of the net. This goal spurred The Harps on and with Conor Deegan and Brian Clancy dominating midfield our lads made it to half time with a deserved 5 point lead, 1-07 to 0-05.

With the wind starting to favour Mountmellick in the second half, it was going to take plenty of effort to get the win and our lads didn’t disappoint. With the defence totally on top, with Aaron Dunne, Niall Donoghue and Sean Cahill particularly impressive, The Harps began to extend their lead. Greg Aylward hit the free’s superbly, and bustling corner forward Tommy Dillon hit his second goal after putting the Mountmellick goal keeper under fierce pressure. Mountmellick went looking for goals to get themselves back into the game, but ball after ball was cleared back up the field.

A very encouraging display all in all, and with some strong hurlers missing on the day competition for places should spur this team on.

The Harps:
1.Peter Walsh; 2.Niall Donoghue; 3.Aaron Dunne; 4.Sean Cahill; 5.David Doheny; 6.John Dunne; 7.Shane Brophy; 8.Brian Clancy; 9.Conor Deegan; 10.Shane Fitzpatrick; 11.Brian Farrell; 12.Niall Brophy; 13.Eoin Sullivan; 14.Greg Aylward; 15.Tommy Dillon.

Harps-v-Borris-Kilcotton-IHC-SF-2014The Harps Intermediates traveled to O’Moore Park, Portlaoise on Thursday night, October 2nd 2014 to try and book their place in the Intermediate Championship County Final. Borris-Kilcotton who had beaten Clonad in the quarter final progressed to meet The Harps who comfortably overcame Portlaoise at the same stage. The game was played under lights and a stern southwest breeze influenced the game greatly.

The Harps used the wind advantage well in the first half opening up a 0-04 to 0-02 lead after fourteen minutes and with points from Greg Aylward (2 frees), Albert Townsend and Ciaran Costigan. In the fifteenth minute a long ball into the forward line was brought down well by Albert Townsend who turned and blasted to the net to open up a five point lead for the Harps men.

Greg Aylward was on fine form from placed balls and added two further points in the following period of play. Borris-Kilcotton replied with a free of their own in the 20th minute. In the 21st minute Greg Aylward grabbed another point for the Harps to restore the seven point lead. A seven minute lull in scores passed before some clever attacking by the Harps found Shane Brophy on the edge of the square who pulled first time to raise a green flag and put the Harps ten points up (2-07 to 0-03).

Credit though to Borris-Kilcotton, they didn’t lie down and came storming back in the remaining minutes of the first half. A failed clearance by the Harps defence allowed Borris-Kilcotton to capitalise and within a minute had Shane Brophy’s goal equaled to reduce the margin to seven points once more. The goal shocked the Harps who failed to win the resulting puckout and conceded a point from play to leave the sides six points apart at the break – The Harps 2-07 V 1-04 Borris-Kilcotton.

The opening five minutes of the second half continued where the final minutes of the first half left off with Borris-Kilcotton stormed out and fired over two quick points from play – the wind advantage now with the west Laois men. Indeed, only for the quick hands of Cathal Phelan in defence an early goal could have been conceeded as his quick thinking pulled a ball that had hit the crossbar and looked certain to bobble over the line. The resulting clearance set up a goal chance for the Harps but a foul by the BK defence gave Greg Aylward the chance to convert a free to bring the Harps back to five in front.

The next ten minutes saw Borris-Kilcotton grind down the Harps lead in an exchange of four points that saw three go to the BK men and just one for the Harps by Greg Aylward who converted a free in the 40th minute. With a goal separating the sides after 49 minutes The Harps made a substitution with Tom Dillon replacing Shane Brophy. But the momentum was with BK and moments later some clever attacking play yielded a goal that was blasted past Peter Walsh who could do nothing to prevent it. Draw match after 50 minutes of play: 2-09 each.

Borris-Kilcotton clearly buoyed on by that goal went into the lead and fired over two unanswered points from play. However, The Harps were determined to get back into the game and were given a life-line when Greg Aylward pointed a free to leave the minimum between the sides going into the last five minutes of the game. Borris-Kilcotton though were equally as determined not to let their hard-earned lead slip and fired over a point from play to restore a two point lead with just minutes remaining on the clock.

The Harps began to hunt for a goal in the final two minutes, but the Borris-Kilcotton defence was resolute and gave nothing away despite wave after wave of Harps attacks. The final passage of play in the game saw Borris-Kilcotton clear a long ball down to midfield and from there strike for a point, but the wind pulled the ball down and despite Peter Walsh’s quick reflex to catch the ball it slipped out of his grasp and into the net to put the result beyond doubt. It was heartbreak for Peter Walsh and his team mates who had given it their all on the night only to see Lady Luck turn turk in the final moments. Full Time: The Harps 2-10 v 3-12 Borris-Kilcotton. The final will see Park-Rathineska play Borris-Kilcotton in two weeks time.

The Harps: 1 – Peter Walsh, 2 – Cathal Phelan, 3 – Aaron Dunne, 4 – JP Deegan, 5 – Shane Fitzpatrick, 6 – John Dunne, 7 – Ciaran Costigan, 8 – Brian Clancy, 9 – Rory Moore, 10 – Conor Deegan, 11 – Greg Aylward, 12 – Eoin O Sullivan, 13 – Shane Brophy (replaced by Tom Dillon after 49mins), 14 – Albert Townsend, 15 – Colm Dunphy.

Scorers: Greg Aylward 0-08 (0-08f), Albert Townsend 1-01, Shane Brophy 1-00, Ciaran Costigan 0-01.

Harps-V-Ballypickas-IHC2014-BThe Harps Intermediate Hurlers traveled to Rathdowney on Sunday, August 17th for a high noon showdown with Ballypickas. Both teams were on their “last life” in the Championship following opening round losses to Clonad for the Harps and to Park-Rathineska for Ballypickas. Manager Paul Kelly opted to play against the breeze for the first half – despite the good sunshine, a persistent strong breeze blew in from the northwest making life difficult for both teams.

Both sides took their time to settle and it took until the sixth minute before a flag was raised. The opening score honour come from the stick of veteran Shane Brophy who collected a lovely pass from Colm Dunphy. Four minutes later The Harps extended their lead when Kieran Freeman fired over a placed ball. Ballypickas replied quickly though and using the wind advantage guided a placed ball over the black spot to open their scoring account. Freeman was again on the scorecard from the resulting puckout and his free raised the Harps third white flag of the day.

Harps-V-Ballypickas-IHC2014-AWith Ballypickas settled well, they began to use their superior physicality to dictate terms and were rewarded with a goal when the Harps failed to clear a goalmouth scramble. Ballypickas buoyed on by the goal, added another point from a placed ball to go two points ahead after sixteen minutes. Kieran Freeman kept the Harps in touch when he added a free on the eighteenth minute, however Ballypickas were still in the driving seat and added two further points from play in as many minutes.

Some choice words between players of both sides got heated when JP Deegan picked up a nasty cut to the face in the twenty-second minute and he had to be blood-subbed by Cathal Phelan to receive attention. When play resumed, Kieran Freeman was on hand to score a beauty of a point from play, a good way out into the breeze. Following that score, JP Deegan resumed play with half time coming into sight. Ballypickas regained their three point advantage when they popped over a free. Greg Aylward replied for the Harps from play to reduce the deficit once more.

The referee added four minutes of injury time to make up for an earlier knock to Michael Larkin and JP Deegan. In injury time, both sides added a point from play – with Kieran Freeman the scorer for the Harps. Half Time: The Harps 0-07 V 1-06 Ballypickas.

The second half started brilliantly for The Harps as Kieran Freeman popped over two frees in the opening three minutes. This was followed hot on the heels by a point from play by Niall Brophy. Freeman again added another point from placed ball which in turn was followed by a point from play by Greg Aylward who received a brilliant pass from Ciaran Costigan. Niall Brophy completed a strong scoring spell for the Harps in the 43rd minute to extend the Harps lead to four points.

Ballypickas to their credit, stormed back into the game and in the 46th minute had a goal for their efforts. Five minutes later, Ballypickas were back level when they pointed a free. The Harps management looked to the bench at that stage to replace tired legs. Michael Larkin was called ashore and was replaced by Cathal Phelan. The game entered a barren spell for the next seven minutes as both sides drove several wides. With two minutes of normal time remaining, Paul Kelly made further changes introducing Tom Dillon and Shane Fitzpatrick who replaced Shane Brophy and Greg Aylward respectively.

Harps-V-Ballypickas-IHC2014-CThe Harps got their noses back in front on the stroke of full time when Kieran Freeman added a point from a free. The resulting puckout was won by the Harps who sent the ball back in quickly. Colm Dunphy ran onto the ball and despite being well held he somehow managed to get a rasper of a shot off to rattle the net and give the Harps a comfortable four point lead into injury time. Conor Deegan suffered cramp and had to be replaced by Padraig Spencer in the third minute of injury time. The referee added four further minutes of injury time which saw Ballypickas launch wave after wave of attack. Credit to Aaron Dunne, Sean Cahill and the entire defence lines who denied Ballypickas time and time again to see the Harps emerge victors on a full time score line of The Harps 1-14 V 2-07 Ballypickas.

The Harps now qualify for the Quarter Finals of the Intermediate Hurling Championship. Details of the fixture will be published when Laois County Board make the draw for the next round.

HarpsIHvCamrossThe Harps Intermediate Hurlers took on Camross tonight in this third round game of Division 2. Although it remained dry throughout the game a heavy drizzle shower before the game made conditions somewhat slippery for the teams coupled with a persistent breeze. Camross got the wind advantage in the first half and built up a strong lead in the opening five minutes with two pointed frees followed up by a point from play. The next five minutes would prove to be even more fruitful for the mountain men bagging a good goal and two further points from play as the Harps struggled to settle and get into the game; 1-05 to 0-00.

Greg Aylward was the first to score for the home side when he fired over a free against the wind from under the west bank in the 11th minute, his first of many for the night such was his accuracy. Some indiscipline in the Camross defence when their corner-back was yellow-carded allowed Greg to fire over two further points from placed balls. But Camross replied well and fired over three points of their own from play before the 20th minute.

The final ten minutes in the first half saw the Harps play some good hurling and set up two lovely points from play from the sticks of Ross Young and Shane Fitzpatrick. Tadgh Sullivan was most unlucky when his attempt at a point clipped the top of the upright and went back into play. The resulting clearance allowed Camross to grab a late score of their own from play just on the stroke of half time.  Half time score: The Harps 0-05 V 1-09 Camross.

The second half opened with a substitution for the Harps that saw Shane Fitzpatrick being replaced by Kieran Freeman. Camross stretched their lead with two points from play inside the opening ten minutes which was a nip-and-tuck affair. The Harps were thrown a life-line when Greg Aylward cut through and smashed the ball to the back of the Camross net to reduce the lead to six points. Camross replied quickly and popped over a point from play. The intensity of the game rose and Greg Aylward scored two points in a row – one from play and another from a placed ball. Ross Young followed up with a good point of his own. At this stage, Rory Doyle was substituted for Eoin O Sullivan.

With just four points between the team disaster struck for the home-side when Camross powered through for their second goal. It proved a bridge too far for the Harps despite outscoring the visitors in the final ten minutes. Greg Aylward pointed two frees either side of a Camross point from play. Tadgh Sullivan grabbed the final score of the night when his point from play raised a white flag. On the stroke of full time The Harps were awarded a penalty and Greg Aylwards rasper took a very slight deflection and slapped the crossbar and with the resulting clearance the referee sounded the long whistle. Full time score: The Harps 1-11 V 2-13 Camross.

The Harps: 1 – Peter Walsh; 2 – Sean Cahill; 3 – John Dunne; 4 – Aaron Dunne; 5 – Richie Saunders; 6 – Tommy Moore; 7 – Conor Brophy; 8 – Shane Fitzpatrick; 9 – Ross Young; 10 – Greg Aylward; 11 – Niall Brophy; 12 – Conor Deegan; 13 – Pat Walsh; 14 – Tadgh Sullivan; 15 – Rory Doyle. Subs Used: Kieran Freeman on for Shane Fitzpatrick (30) and Eoin O Sullivan for Rory Doyle (47).

hurling1A sunny Easter Sunday afternoon at Durrow GAA grounds was the place to be as the Harps took on Ballypickas in the opening round of League 2 hurling. While the crowds had a sweet aftertaste in their mouths from Easter Eggs, the scoring from the Harps would go one better on the tastebuds! The Harps played fantastic hurling throughout the game despite being without the services of Richie Saunders who will be on county duty this Saturday (April 26th) with the minors when they play Offaly in Tullamore. The Harps were full value for their two league points and top the table on scoring difference as a result.

The Harps were dominant in all lines of the field, John Dunne commanded the full back position clearing great ball, linking up with Pat Walsh, James Lappin and Kieran Freeman around the midfield zone who in turn set up great scoring opportunities for the forwards. Brian Clancy was in fine form in centre forward and was the scorer in chief for the home-side with Greg Aylward confident over the placed ball converting pretty much everything that came his way. Indeed all the forwards were on top form driving up a big score against a Ballypickas side who never got into the game. The Harps backs were dominant throughout, snuffing out any attempts from the Ballypickas lads to get a run of scoring.

Full Time Score: The Harps 5-19 v 1-08 Ballypickas. Next up in the League Division 2 is Park-Rathineska this Saturday 26th April at 7pm in Rathineska GAA grounds.

Managements Thoughts: Speaking to theharpsgaa.com after the match a member of the management team was in full praise of the team for the work ethic showed and was delighted to get the league off to a winning start, emphasizing that winning becomes a habit when such hard work is applied during every game.

The Harps: 1 – Pater Walsh; 2 – Sean Cahill; 3 – John Dunne; 4 – Aaron Dunne (Ciaran Costigan on 45th minute); 5 – Conor Brophy; 6 – Tommy Moore; 7 – Ross Young; 8 – James Lappin; 9 – Kieran Freeman; 10 – Greg Aylward; 11 – Brian Clancy; 12 – Pat Walsh; 13 – Conor Deegan; 14 – Niall Brophy; 15 – Tadgh Sullivan.
