Ennistymon CBS claimed the Corn Risteard Uí Mhathúna (Munster Senior Hurling C championship) beating Presentation School Ballingarry 2-22 to 1-07.

By John Sheridan

An early goalmouth scramble ended up with Keith Barry raising a green flag for the North Clare school. It was a very one-sided affair in the first half with CBS up by 19 points at half time.

Scoring wasn’t as plentiful in the second half, Ennistymon CBS hitting 1-05 but Niall Mullins sealed the win for the Jason Daffy managed side when he powered past the Ballingarry goalkeeper in close quarters

There wasn’t as much scoring in the second half, but Niall Mullins sealed the win for Jason Daffys team after he powered the sliotar past Ballingarrys keeper in close quarters. It was low scoring in the second half with only 1-05 scored by the CBS.

While they were without Brendy Rouine for the provincial football success, the hurlers had to do without Inagh/Kilnamona senior hurler Josh Guyler when running out eighteen point winners.

“I’m thrilled for the lads, they have played so well throughout the campaign and were up for today’s match. We had a tough game against Killmallock two weeks ago and we’ve been gunning for today’s victory since. It’s tough on the boys, playing such important games in both hurling and football the last few weekends without a break but we are just putting our heads down and getting on with it,” manager Jason Daffy said.

Principal Mary Lyons spoke of her pride at seeing the school’s success. “I am exceptionally proud of the boys and their achievement in winning both football and hurling Munster Titles. Having attended the semi-finals and finals, I witnessed the huge work rate, skill, determination and never say die attitude of the lads in both squads. This work rate and attitude will no doubt stand to them in their academic lives and careers in the future. Many years and great teams have passed through the CBS since the last time we had Munster Football success in 1988/89 under the guidance of Mr Clohessy”.

Tara Rynne who is manager of the victorious football side note is now looking forward to the school competing in All-Ireland semi-finals. “It’s a huge achievement for our small school to reach the Munster finals in both codes, and to come away with the win both days out is extraordinary. It’s nothing short of what the boys deserve. They have put in so much work the last few months, and years and have so much talent. We will prepare now for 2 All-Ireland Semis in the next few weeks and give it our best shot”.
