Deaths: Christmas is normally a time of enjoyment and celebration but for all in Lissycasey, Christmas 2009 will lone live in the memory as a time of great shock and sadness. In a matter of a few hours on St. Stephens Day, joy turned to sadness for all in the community and particularly for the members of the GAA club. The tragic death of prominent senior panelist Brian Casey has rocked the locality and the neighbouring parishes Brian was a prominent member of the club's senior panel for the past four years. He played at every level for the club since first coming to prominence when playing football at primary schools level. He was a member of the senior championship and Cusack cup winning panels in 2007 and he has been a first choice defender throughout the past two seasons. He helped the club to a number of underage titles during the past decade.Noted for his leadership qualities, he was one of the driving forces behind the early start to preparations for the 2010 campaign A dedicated member of the club, Brian travelled home from his base in Mallow every week for training and games with Lissycasey. The club's senior team commenced preparations for 2010 in mid November and Brian was ever present at training throughout the past month.. Such were the numbers that attended Brian's funeral Mass in Our Lady of the Wayside Church in Lissycasey that the church was packed to capacity three quarters of an hour before mass commenced at 12 noon New Year's Day "We have no answers as to why this happened to someone so good. We have questions as to why and we will have those for a long time to come", chief celebrant Fr. Peter O'Loughlin told Brian's family, parents Marty and Eileen, sisters Martina and Aileen, brother Niall and girlfriend Cecilia. Fr. O'Loughlin paid tribute to the community for the tremendous generosity they have shown. "We don't have words but by our presence we are saying that we are with you". Gifts brought to the altar by family and friends included cattle cards, marking his interest in farming and in the family farm at Labasheeda;, his football medals won in a variety of grades with Lissycasey, his football jersey, a woodwork project by one of his students at college in Mallow.  Brian's brother Niall explained that presenting this project reflected how Brian's priority was to pass on his passion and enthusiasm to his pupils. Brian's passion, pride and determination had always shone through. In a moving tribute Brian's sister Martina described him as "a model teacher, an inspiring son, a loyal friend and a most wonderful brother".  She spoke of the special bond he had with each of his family. His love for his father was illustrated on a plaque in the family home which said "Dads are people to look up to no matter how tall you grow". She spoke of how their mother Eileen tried to encourage him to be a musician or set dancer but he choose football. She recalled his relationship with his girlfriend Cecilia which "spanned ten years. Throughout their teenage years, friendship changed to romance and they both became inseparable soulmates. We know that their hearts will always belong to one another. "He has left many things undone and there are other things he had not had a chance to start. Brian's outgoing fun loving personality ensured that he made so many new friends. He developed into a model teacher, an inspiring son  and loyal friend. Not only were we brother and sister, we were also confidants and best friends. For Aileen, Niall and me, he was the most wonderful brother. "His discipline, sacrifice and courage served him well in all walks of life, His most treasurer memory will surely be October 14, 2007 when Lissycasey secured the Jack Daly cup, the county senior football title. He became a role model for many younger football players in the parish. Brian has left behind much more than an empty jersey handing on a peg in the dressing room. He wore the maroon and whitejersey with such pride and passion . Musical tributes at the Mass included "You Raise me up", "Never mind the strangers 'cause I'll always be your friend, "I'm and ordinary man and "Maroon and White Forever". A Guard of Honour formed by members of Lissycasey GAA assisted by a number of neighbouring clubs. His colleagues on the Lissycasey senior panel flanked his coffin on its final journey from the church to the graveyard The coffin was draped in the maroon and while colours of his belovedLissycasey GAA. At the graveside his team mates sang maroon and white forever. A number of his club mates returned from Australia and Boston when news of his untimely and tragic death reached them Brian is survived by his parents Martin and Eileen, his sisters Martina and Aileen, his brother Niall, his girlfriend Cecilia, aunts, uncles, cousins and a large circle of friends Brian's passing at just 26 years of age, came shortly after thetragic death of Pat Kelly, Coolbawn, Lissycasey, a former player with the club. Pat lined out at full back for Lissycasey in the minor B championship final in 1979 when the local side lost by a point (1-5 to 1-6) to Kilfenora. Members of the club also formed a guard of honour as Pat's remainswere carried from the church to the adjoining grave for burial and his coffin was draped in the maroon and while of the clubTommy Meere, Cloncolman, who also died tragically over the holiday period, followed the club's fortunes and was proud of its successes.

Slan A Chara.Lissycasey GAA suffered a major loss recently with the untimely death of Gearoid O'Sullivan following a short illness.Principal teacher at Lissycasey national school, Gearoid played a huge part in the development of our club. Having returned from Dublin in the late seventiesto take up a teaching appointment in Lissycasey, he quickly got involved in the promotion of football by taking charge of a number of underageclub sides as well, of course, as coaching the school team.At the time Lissycasey were competing in the C grade in most underage competitions but successquickly followed and the club progressed up to grade B and onto grade A under his direction. There was scarcely a year that a title or twodidn't come to the club under his direction. His work for the club wasn't confined to the coaching of teams and he became club chairman and steered the club to great heights during his twelve year stint in this positon. In addition to his role as club chairman, he was secretary of the club's development committee which spearheaded the development of the club's main pitch in Lissycasey, a facility that was officially opened in 1982. In the early nineties the club was struggling to make an impression at junior level. A new management team headed by Martin Brennan was appointed at the beginning of 1992 and Martin appointed Paudie Halpin, Seamus Hayes and Gearoid O'Sullivan to work with him With this group in charge the club progressed through junior to intermediate and then to senior ranks in the space of three years. Gearoid's leadership was a huge factor in the club's progress. While not involved as an official in the club in recent years, he continued to play a huge role by coaching school teams. Twice in the past three years, the parish school team won the Clare division 1 football title and these players went on to backbone successful club teams, particularly the under 12 A winning side of 2008. Gearoid's popularity was evident from the huge numbers that attended his funeral, both the removal of his remains from his home, and the funeral mass followed by burial. Club members former a guard of honour when his remains arrived at Our Lady of the Wayside Church in Lissycasey and his coffin was draped in the maroon and white colours of his beloved club.

Oct 2009:

MINOR DIV 1 COUNTY FOOTBALL CHAMPIONS:  After the disappointment of failing to make the play offs in the senior championship for a second successive season, the year ended on a high for Lissycasey when the club's minor footballers made history by winning the County A championship title for the first time in the club's history. The final score---0-11 to 1-7---shows that only a point separated the teams but, in reality, Lissycasey were more comprehensive winners that the scoreline suggests. That said, however, there were anxiousmoments near the end as Ennistymon fought their way back. The game's only goal came in the fifth minute of injury time---there was surprise at the amount of additional time played by referee Fergal O'Shea---but a nervous Lissycasey held on for an historic success. Lissycasey played some excellent football in the first half of this tie as they raced into a 0-9 to 0-2 half time lead. Indeed, they would not have been flattered if they were a further five or six points ahead such was their dominance in this period when they had points from John Cabey, Sean Hayes, Kevin Hanrahan, Michael O'Neill and free taker Enda Finnucane.  Unlucky to lose out in the semi-final in 2008, there was no stopping the squad this time out. From the outset the management team of Tom Hill, Tom Clohessy (joint managers), John Joe McMahon and David McMahon had their sights set on this title Wins over Doora-Barefield, Kilrush, Miltown, Kilmihil and Parteen had Lissycasey into the quarter finals before they received walkovers from Newmarket and Coolmeen-Kildysart in their final two group games. Having topped their group, they were drawn against the West Clare penninsula amalgamation of Naomh Eoin, O'Currys and.Kilkee in the quarter final and they easily won this which gave them a semi-final date with the competition title holders and favourites Cratloe. A powerful performance here saw Lissycasey dethrone the champions and
they went on to avenge the previous year's semi-final defeat when they beat Ennistymon in the final at Kilmihil. For eleven of the panel it was a particularly special occasion as two weeks earlier they helped Kilmaley to win the minor A title. The 'magnificent eleven' are Martin O'Connor (football captain) Michael Pyne(hurling captain) Eoin Fitzgerald Danny Clohessy, Enda Finnucane, Eoin Enright, Sean Hayes, John Cabey, Michael O'Neill, John O'Loughlin and Paul Kennedy. The remaining members of Lissycasey's first ever minor A winning outfit are Kevin Moran, Cathal Doohan, Cyril Sheehan, Tom Collins, Kevin Hanrahan, Matthew O'Shea, John Cummins, Alan Pyne, Ronan McCarthy, Andrew Cleary, Niall Griffin. Aidan Clancy, Stephen McGovern, David Talty and Colm O'Rourke.

 Lissycasey were crowned division 4 football league champions at Miltown on Saturday when they overcame the challenge of Kilfenora ina tie which produced some very good football. A goal eight minutes into the second half proved vital in this tie. Experienced Lissycasey midfielder Noel Finnucane created the opening and passed to his nephew Enda who shot low to the corner of the net.The score put Lissycasey four clear and while Kilfenora battled tothe end they were never able to get back on terms.The winners started well and raced into a three point lead with good scores from Enda Finnucane, Tadhg Kelly and Fergal Talty before the North Clare side opened their account through David McMahon.Lissycasey were 0-6 to 0-4 in front at half time and five minutesinto the second half the sides were level after two Killian Malone efforts tied up the game, A fine score from the experienced Tadhg Kelly put the Lissycasey men back in front and then Finnucane's goal followed. By the mid point of the half the margin was down to two points but a brace from substitute David Considine and Dermot Nagle put the winners four clear again with ten minutes remaining. Kilfenora piled on the pressure in the last ten minutes and came close to scoring the goal they needed with six minutes remaining when Austin Kelly's piledriver rebounded off the crossbar. Kelly pointed with two minutes remaining but this proved to be the final score and Lissycasey held firm for a merited victory. Oisin Talty and Niall Kelly were always prominent in a defence which worked hard throughout.

O Gorman Cup Final: Kilmurry-Ibrickane 0-14  Lissycasey  0-10

Appearing in their third successive O'Gorman cup football final in Doonbeg last Saturday, Lissycasey failed in their attempt to win back
a trophy they lost to the same opposition by the minimum margin a year earlier. Kilmurry-Ibrickane were that bit sharper and fitter on the evening
and this proved decisive. They led from the start and were 0-8 to 0-6 in front at half time. The set the tone in the opening minutes when Enda Coughlan and Stephen Moloney pointed but Lissycasey hit back with likes scores from Tadhg Kelly and Michael O'Rourke to tie up the game.
Four in a row from Michael Hogan, Mark McCarthy (2 frees) and Enda Coughlan put the winners four clear and after this they were never headed.
This particular fixture was only confirmed for Saturday evening after the title holders confirmed to organisers Doonbeg that they would
play without their representatives on the Clare junior team for last Sunday's Provincial semi-final.When they returned for the second half on Saturday with Paul O'Connor and Martin McMahon in their defence, there was surprise and, it has to be said, acute disappointment for the Clare junior management team. Both sides kicked three points each in the third quarter before the title holders's greater fitness saw them outscore their opponents, 0-3 to 0-1, in the final quarter. Peter O'Dwyer enjoyed the upperhand at midfield for much of the second half and Enda Coughlan, named as the man of the match, proved a handful for Lissycasey throughout. Teenager Mark McCarthy kicked some excellent scores and he finished
with 0-6 to his credit while Stephen and Brendan Moloney were others to do well. Michael Melican, Cathal McMahon, Cathal and Sean Hill
worked hard throughout for Lissycasey. This victory means that Kilmurry-Ibrickane are still unbeaten in senior competitive action in Clare this season.

Under 16 Div 2 Final: Lissycasey 3-5 Ennistymon 0-8 A better balanced Lissycasey outfit proved too strong for Ennistymon in a lively Fergus Credit Union under 16 division  2 final at Cooraclare on Saturday but they had to survive a strong last quarter from the North Clare side before being crowned champions. Played before a fine attendance, the game produced some excellent football. Ennistymon started well and  scored first through Ian White but Lissycasey equalised through Michael O'Neill who had a tremendous game. The North Clare side went back in front through Joey Rouine but then Lissycasey struck for the game's first goal and it's a score Ennistymon will be disappointed to have conceded but the credit will go to Lissycasey wing forward O'Neill. Andrew Cleary had Lissycasey's second goal ten minutes before half
time and the score helped them to a five point interval lead with the score standing at 2-3 to 0-4. When play resumed, they took up where they had left off and Cleary had his second goal just three minutes into this period. Points fromanother of the game's starts, Matt O'Shea and O'Neill put the winners ten points clear with just under ten minutes of the second period gone. To their credit, Ennistymon refused to give up and helped by a number of switches to their line up they bounced back. They had the better of the final quarter but they just could not breach a superb Lissycasey defence for the goal they needed.. Team captain Hanrahan and Eoin Fitzgerald were outstanding in central defensive roles for the winners while goalkeeper John Cummins made some fine stops. Overall, the defence was excellent while Matt O'Shea and Thomas Lynch controlled midfield  for three quarters of the game. Up front Michael O'Neill excelled while Andrew Cleary and full forward Conor Hennessy also impressed.Enda Ralph, Paul Queally until injured, Oisin Burke, Ronan Linnane, Ian White and Joey Rouine did well for the losers.

Derek Doohan replaced O'Rourke in the only change in the Lissycasey line out from the County Final and Cusack Cup Final. Kilcummin took control from the start and had 2 early points while Lissycasey were struggling to win possessision.

Tadgh Kelly had Lissycasey's first point of the half twelve minutes in and two minutes later Danny Lynch shot pass the goalie to rattle the Kilcummin net.

Leading by seven points at the interval (2-6 to 0-5), they withstood a spirited Lissycasey second-half comeback. Two first-half goals from Stephen Hickey and Peter Cosgrove rocked a determined Lissycasey outfit that started superbly. The seven-point half-time margin didn't faze Lissycasey and they reduced the Éire Óg lead with five unanswered points by the end of the third quarter.

The score of the afternoon was left to wing forward Cathal Shannon, when he kicked a superb Ennis point from the right sideline. Three Lissycasey points from Paul Nagle kept it close late in the game and it was left to Shane Daniels to complete the scoring. Lissycasey tried in vain to snatch a draw but Éire Óg's defence held strong.

County Senior Football Championship 2006: Lissycasey have qualified for the Clare County Senior Football Final on October 29th 2006 where their opponents will be Eire Og, Ennis. Lissycasey defeated County Champions St Senan's Kilkee on a score line of 1.13 to 2.06 in a very exciting game played at Miltown on Saturday Oct 7th. Lucky to survive in the Competition a few weeks back, Lissycasey turned in a very impressive display to score a fully merited victory over Kilkee and qualify for the Clare Senior Championship final for only the second time in the clubs history. Great redit must be given to the Lissycasey defence which was excellent throughout.Playing with the aid of the breeze in the opening half they raced into a quick lead when Colin Lynch and Martin Daly combined for Daly to open the scoring.  Daly provided for corner back and team Captain Michael Melican, who came upfield to point before Daly landed the score of the game and indeed the score of the season. Anthony Kelly followed with a point and the winners were 4 clear at the end of the quarter. Scores followed from Martin Daly, & Paul Nagle to make it 0.07 to 0.0 Kilkee got their first score in the 24th minute. Then added another  before Martin Daly scored 2 more to leave the half time score at 0.09 to 0.02. Kilkee made changes in the second half and thus dominated the opening stages . at the three quarted stage the score read 0.11 to 0.05.  Then David Russell and Senan Hayes exchanged points before Danny Lynch  landed a magnificent effort for the winners to restore the 7 point lead they held at half time. 2 Minutes of normal time remained when a Denis Russell delivery found Gearoid Lynch unmarked inside the defence and he shot past Joe Hayes to give Kilkee a glimmer of hope. A minute later Lissycasey were on their way to the final. Joe Hayes kickout was won by Michael O Rourke and his superb delivery into the wind  put Martin Daly clear and the full forward capped a tremendious display with an excellent goal. To their credit Kilkee fought on and David Russell goaled 2 minutes into added time just before the final whistle. Thw winners defence excelled with the half back trio of Cathal McMahon, James Kelly & Alan Nagle dictating matters. Anthony Kelly & Michael O Rourke controlled matters at Mid Field while up front Senan Hayes & Paul Nagle stretched the Kilkee defence on many occasions. Colin Lynch played a crucial role particularly in the second half when he dropped back to help the defence against the wind. Time after time he made  tremendois runs from defence to set up scores on a day when Brian Casey, Joe Hayes and team Captain Michael Melican made valuable contributions. Lissycasey's victory gives them a place in the final for the second time in their history and it comes in the season in which they are celebrating their 40th birthday. Founded in 1966 , the club gained senior status in 1994 when they won the Intermediate title defeating Eire Og in the final.  In 1998 Lissycasey contested the Senior Final for the 1st time and they lost out to Doonbeg in a replay.

County Senior Football Championship 2006. Lissycasey Drew with Sh Gaels in a dramatic end to the Senior Football 1/4 final which was  hampered by driving rain, and played at Doonbeg on Saturday 16th Sept. A last minute goal from Michael O Rourke in extra time saw Lissycasey level the game on a score line of Sh Gaels 0.10 Lissycasey 1.07. Fortunate to be just three points in arrears when they won a 45 in the third minute of injury time,there appeared to be little chance of Lissycasey staying in the race for the 2006 clare Senior Football championship title. However Martin Daly's free was flicked to the net by midfielder Michael O Rourke, leaving the Gaels wondering how they hadn't won this tie. For most of the hour Shannon Gaels dominated and while Lissycasey had narrowed the margin to the minimum with six minutes remaining, two John Dillon efforts had put the Gaels three clear by the end of normal time. They could and indeed should have been well ahead at this stage but Lissycasey Goalkeeper Joe Hayes had denied them on a number of occasions. Four minutes from the end when they were ahead by a point Padraig Neylon Sh GAels was put through and with only Hayes to beat he tried for goal only to see his shot well stopped. The Gaels hit back for a brace of points but that last gasp finish earned Lissycasey a fortunate draw. Lissycasey: Joe Hayes.Senan Hayes. Michael Melican.Brian Casey.Cathal Talty,James Kelly.Alan Nagle.Tadhg Kelly. Michael O Rourke.Danny Lynch. Anthony Kelly. Cathal McMahon.Paul Nagle. Colin Lynch.

Cusack Cup: Lissycasey 3.3 Kilkee 1.4  The game opened at a good pace and there was a promise of better things to come as both sides showed some nice football.Unfortunately the early promise was not maintained  and the game got into a rut of poor football and was marred by incidents which might have assumed a more serious character but for the firm handling of the referee and the efforts of the officials from both teams, and the fact that many players on both sides refused to participate in rough exchanges. Final score. Lissycasey 3.3 Kilkee 1.4

(Clare Champion 22nd May 1965)


Ballynacally  Tournament final:  Ballynacally 3.3 Caherea 2.0 .The final of the Ballynacally Tournament ,which provided patrons with a fine exhibition of football, resulted in a win for Ballynacally. Caherea, fielding at full strength,were much fancied but there was no "fluke" about the Ballynacally success as they were masters for most of the hour.The match was played in a very sporting spirit and was a credit to both teams.The teams were slow to settle down but Ballynacally were the most dangerous. Caherea defence was under pressure from the throw in but Clancy , Hill & Moran  proved their worth and the game was ten minutes old when Ballynacally opened the scoring- a goal from a free by M Daly. This was followed by points from J Egan and O Toole. The Caherea forwards showed weakness at this stage and were easily mastered by the stonewall defence of the Murphys, Kelly's and Joe Gavin. Eventually they got through for a goal by Joe Daly  , but this score was negatived by a similar register for Ballynacally by J O Toole. Half Time score :Ballynacally 2.2 Caherea 1.0  On the resumption, Caherea looked like as if they would pull the game out of the fire,but the splendid work of J Egan and J Ryan for Ballynacally brought the game round in favour of the Juniors,and Callinan brought their total up to 3.2 with a well taken goal to be followed by a point from the same player. Canny , from a free, reduced the lead by a goal in the closing minutes. This closed the scoring. P.J. Murphy, at full back with John Egan and John Ryan were the most prominent Ballynacally players while John Hill, John Keane and Michael Daly played well fro Caherea. Mr James McInerney , Kildysart was an efficent and impartial Referee

(Clare Champion March 23rd 1940)
