Senior Championship: Ennistymon 3-9 Lissycasey 1-13 For the third championship game in a row Lissycasey have failed to win when holding the lead going into the final quarter. At Cusack Park on Saturday, they looked to be on their way to a quarter final clash with Cratloe when they led 0-13 to 1-6 against Ennistymon but they managed just one more score while conceding 2-3 as their involvement in the 2017 Clare senior football championship ended. There was no shortage of talking points after this game which saw Ennistymon awarded a penalty in each half while Lissycasey ended with thirteen men after red cards were shown to Oisin Hanrahan and Niall Kelly in the closing minutes. Lissycasey had enough possession to have won this tie but they failed to extend their lead when they dominated the exchanges in the third quarter. Both penalty awards were dubious but they were expertly converted by Ennistymon's Sean McConigley and the second one was the key score as it gave the North Clare side back the lead with six minutes remaining. Lissycasey led by the odd point in five when the first penalty was awarded, twelve minutes into the game. Despite protests from Lissycasey that the tackle was outside the square, referee Pat Cosgrove pointed to the penalty spot and McConigley converted. Lissycasey battled back and when the half time whistle sounded they were a point in front, 0-8 to 1-4. They enjoyed the better of matters in the third quarter at the end of which they had stretched their lead to four points.Matt O'Shea excelled for Lissycasey at midfield while Ryan Griffin, Gerry Moran, Oisin and Kevin Hanrahan got through some good work. Attention now turns to the senior B championship where Lissycasey will face O'Curry's in a semi-final tie with St. Josephs awaiting the winners in the final

Senior Football  Quarter final draw 
Cratloe v Ennistymon/ Lissycasey
Clondegad v Doonbeg 
Eire Óg V Kilmurry Ib 
Cooraclare v Miltown

Senior Championship : Clondegad 1-10 Lissycasey 1-7: For the second time in two weeks Clondegad and Lissycasey faced each other in this round 2 senior championship game at Cooraclare and for much of this latest clash another draw looked the likely outcome.Weather conditions were very difficult on this occasion with players having to contend with driving rain which made ball control particularly difficult. Nor surprisingly then, this was a game which had a lot of mistakes as players regularly spilled possession and this was particularly true of Lissycasey.Indeed the decisive score, Clondegad's goal, which came four minutes from the end of the second period of extra time, came after Lissycasey lost possession when they looked to have the situation under control.Lissycasey were dealt a cruel blow as early as the fourth minute when they lost Mikey O'Neill, arguably their man of the match in both their games in the competition to date with a collar bone injury.Having played with the aid of the breeze in the first half, Lissycasey led by two points at the break, 0-5 to 0-3 and they would not have been flattered had they been another one or two ahead at this stage.Clondegad stepped up a gear on the resumption and quickly levelled before Lissycasey's Conor Finnucane weaved his way through the winner's defence for a goal. They had two chances to extend their advantage but failed to avail of these and, as was the case two weeks earlier, Clondegad came back strongly.. Tony Kelly's effort at the mid point of the half was signalled as a point despite many holding the view that the ball was wide and as the game entered the final ten minutes Gary Brennan cut the deficit to one.The game was in the final minute of normal time when the Clare captain converted a 20m free to level the tie and send it to extra time. Clondegad had the breeze for the first period and quickly took the lead with points from substitute Francie Neylon and Paudge McMahon before an Enda Finnucane effort left the minimum between the sides at the break in the extra period. Paudge McMahon's goal with just under four minutes remaining sealed victory and a quarter final place for Clondegad.

August 2017: 

Senior football Championship: Lissycasey 1-12 Clondegad 0-15 Extra time failed to separate neighbours Lissycasey and Clondegad in this senior football championship round 2 game played at Cooraclare on Saturday afternoon.  In a tie in which they were level ten times over he course of eighty minutes---the game went to extra time---a draw was a fair outcome and they will have to do it all over again to determine who will go into the quarter finals in the race for the Jack Daly cup.Points were exchanged twice before Conor Finnucane found the net from the penalty spot after he had been fouled thirteen minutes into the game. Clondegad fought back to level before a Michael O'Neill effort gave Lissycasey a one point advantage, 1-4 to 0-6, at half time.  Lissycasey went three clear at the start of the second half but four in a row for Clondegad had them one clear at the turn of the final quarter. From here to the full time whistle they swapped points three times to finish at 0-13 for Clondegad to 1-10.In the first period of extra time each side added a point and it was the same in the second period. Over the eighty minutes Lissycasey created the greater number of chances but they were guilty of some poor shooting and ended the tie with fifteen wides, six more than their opponents.

Miltown St. Josephs 1-16 Lissycasey 0-8 Miltown St. Josephs powered to a comfortable eleven point victory over Lissycasey at the latter's venue on Bank holiday Monday evening and, in the process, sealed their place in the Cusack cup play offs while ending Lissycasey's hopes of featuring in the semi-final this season. A powerful second half from the visitors decided this one as they outscored their opponents 1-10 to 0-4 in this period.The first half was a relatively even affair at the end of which the winners held a two point lead, 0-6 to 0-4. Such was the possession enjoyed by Lissycasey in this period that they would not have been flattered had they been ahead at the mid point.It was a different story in the second half as the winners piled on the scores, hitting impressive points from Eoin and Conor Cleary and the outstanding Gordon Kelly before substitute Micheal Malone struck for the game's only goal at the end of normal time to seal victory.Lissycasey will know after this performance that a big improvement is required before they face Clondegad in the championship on Saturday week if they are to emerge with a win.Seamus Collins, Ryan Griffin, Michael Nagle, Enda Finnucane and Niall Kelly tried hardest for the Lissycasey men in this outing.

Lissycasey players involved in Melbourne tournament

There was a big Clare involvement in the Garryowen GAA organised 9 a side Gaelic football tournament in Melbourne at the weekend. Included were eight Lissycasey players who were part of the Na Sean Fir team which recorded some good results before losing out in the final in a penalty shoot out.
The eight Lissycasey clubmen involved were Niall Casey (Ballydineen), Senan Pyne (Lissycasey), Niall McMahon (Caherea), Fergal Talty (Cragg), Gerard Murphy (Frure), Patrick Kelly (Caherea), Kieran Clancy (Boloughera) and Rory Kelly (Frure). Rory's sister Aine took part in the ladies competition.
Na Sean Fir scored an impressive 4-4 to 0-8 win over St. Kevin's in their opening game. First half goals from Adrian Boyle and Niall Casey had Na Sean Fir on their way. Senan Pyne's kick out strategy proved decisive as he picked out the hard running Gerard Murphy and Dale Evans with great accuracy resulting in many scoring chances. Second half goals from Fergal Talty and Patrick Kelly saw Na Sean Fir finish strongly to run out 4 point winners.
They then played out a thrilling draw with Geelong Gael's in their second group game. Following a sluggish start, Na Sean Fir trailed by two points at half time having played into a stiff breeze. They went further behind after the restart as the impressive Senan Pyne was beaten by a well worked effort by the Geelong Gaels. Na Sean Fir kept tacking on the points and with two minutes remaining, their patience was rewarded as Niall Casey powered through to rattle the net to draw the sides level at 1-5 apiece. Geelong Gaels had one final chance to win the game form a long range free which drifted wide much to the delight of the sizable Na Sean Fir support. These results qualified the team for the final against St. Kevins: Due to conditions at Gaelic Park, pitch 3 was deemed unplayable. Following much debate between the management of St Kevin's and Na Sean Fir, it was decided to complete the competition with a penalty shootout as their was no pitch available. Defeat was the lot for Na Sean Fir in the penalty shoot out on a scoreline of 4-1

Under 21 Final:   A disappointing day for u-21 footballers:  Kilmurry-Ibrickane 1-13 Lissycasey 2-8

A tremendous under 21 A football final ended in disappointment for Lissycasey this afternoon when they went under by two points to Kilmurry-Ibrickane at Corofin. Before a big attendance on a dry but cold afternoon, patrons were served up a very entertaining contest in which both sides enjoyed periods of dominance.Lissycasey were dealt two huge blows before a ball was kicked with the loss of Padraig McNamara who suffered a broken hand in a car accident on Friday and then to added to the disappointment Michael Nagle suffered a groin injury in the warm up and had to withdraw.
Kilmurry made a great start and took an early lead with a goal from Keith Sexton. Lissycasey fought back and helped by a goal from Conor Finnucane they went to the break with a three point advantage, 1-7 to 1-4. Finnucane's last point, shortly before the half time whistle, could have been a goal but Kilmurry goalie Darragh Moloney managed to turn the ball over the bar. It was a different story in the second half, however as Kilmurry, inspired by the outstanding Keelan Sexton, took a grip on proceedings. They hit six unanswered points to open a three point lead by the three quarter stage and things seemed to be going from bad to worse for Lissycasey when they were reduced to fourteen with the sending off of midfielder Brian Cahill.Inspired by the outstanding Ryan Griffin, team captain, Lissycasey fought back and Griffin found the net to level the tie with just over ten minutes to go. Lissycasey had a couple of opportunities to hit the front but failed to capitalise on these and Kilmurry hit back with excellent points from Keelan Sexton and Dermot Coughlan. Lissycasey piled on the pressure in the closing minutes but all they could managed was a Michael O'Malley point as Kilmurry held on for victory.
Lissycasey; Killian Normoyle (0-2); Roy Griffin, Niall McCarthy, Daire Hanrahan; Oisin Hanrahan, Seamus Collins, Levi Howard; Ryan Griffin (1-1) Brian Cahill (0-1); Conor Finnucane (1-3), Conor Talty, Michael O'Malley (0-1); Aaron Griffin, Sean Kennedy, Eoin O'Leary.
Subs; Gary Stephens for O'Leary' Niall Meere for Kennedy; Ciaran Doohan for A. Griffin.

Cusack Cup: Cratloe 2-6 Lissycasey 0-11: Lissycasey's hopes of making the play offs in this season's Cusack cup ended with this one point loss to Cratloe at Lissycasey on Thursday evening.A controversial decision by referee John Brew to award a penalty to Cratloe inside the last five minutes turned this tie in Cratloe's favour as Cathal McInerney converted the resultant free which gave the visitors the lead for the first time.The home side had the better of the first half exchanges and led at half time 0-5 to 0-3. Indeed they would not have been flattered with a greater advantage at this time as they had created a number of good chances which weren't converted.In the opening minutes of the second half Lissycasey added two points to open a four point lead and this was still the position entering the final quarter.With less than ten minutes to go Cratloe levelled when David Collins goaled but Enda Finnucane quickly restored Lissycasey's lead which they held until that penalty decision.

Paul Cleary Tournament U13 : Well done Lissycasey Under 13 team who won the Paul Cleary tournament Labasheeda. Lissycasey defeated Cooraclare in the final.

Cusack Cup:  Cusack Cup: Kilmurry-Ibrickane 6-10 Lissycasey 1-7 : Lissycasey suffered their heaviest defeat in some time when going under to title holders and leaders Kilmurry-Ibrickane in round six of the cusack cup at Lissycasey on today Saturday. A much changed Lissycasey team struggled from the outset and they were well behind at half time when the score was 5-6 to 1-5 after the home side had played with the aid of the breeze. Points were exchanged in the opening five minutes, Oisin Hanrahan equalising for Lissycasey after Keelan Sexton had put the winners ahead but then in the space of ten minutes the visitors hit 3-2 without reply to take command of the tie. Paul Nagle scored Lissycasey's goal two minutes from the break but the half finished badly for the home side as they conceded two goals in the space of a minute. At half time Lissycasey introduced the experienced Gerry Moran and Cathal Hill and made a number of positional changes and the second half proved to be a tighter affair, Kilmurry's sixth goal coming in the final minute of the half. Overall, it was a very disappointing performance from the home side who will need to show a huge improvement if they hope to make an impression in the championship.Lissycasey; Killian Normoyle; Cyril Sheehan, Matt O'Shea, Kevin Hanrahan; Seamus Collins, Francis Hayes (0-1), Oisin Talty; Enda Finnucane (0-1) Ryan Griffin; Niall Kelly (0-2) Oisin Hanrahan (0-2), Conor Finnucane (0-1); Paul Nagle (1-0), Danny Clohessy, Martin Moran;

Feile Peil na nOg:  Lissycasey were beaten by both Eire Og & Clondegad in Feile. The team performed very week and were unlucky at the end. Well done to all.

Cusack Cup:  Clondegad 1-10 Lissycasey 0-6
Lissycasey suffered their first defeat in this season's Cusack cup when they went under to Clondegad at Ballynacally on Sunday. In particularly difficult weather conditions, the sending off to two players proved very costly for Lissycasey. Having just scored the opening point, Paul Nagle was shown a red card in the third minute while early in the second half, Oisin Hanrahan picked up a second yellow card which ended his involvement in the game.Being two players short at any time is difficult but it was particularly difficult in the conditions which prevailed on Sunday.Clondegad finished with fourteen as, shortly before the final whistle, their top scorer, Paudge McMahon, picked up a straight red card.
As mentioned, Paul Nagle put Lissycasey ahead in the first minute and it was the tenth minute before Cillian Brennan equalised for the home side. Niall Kelly restored Lissycasey's lead and they held this until just before the half time whistle when Paudge McMahon levelled to leave the score at 0-2 each at the break.Both sides created goal opportunities in the first half but none were converted. Both also had to make changes as they lost players, Joe Neylon (Clondegad) and Cyril Sheehan (Lissycasey) to black cards. Lissycasey also had Gerry Moran black carded shortly before the full time whistle McMahon put Clondegad ahead in the first minute of the second half before the visitors were reduced to thirteen and from here on the home side took a grip on proceedings. They added points from McMahon and Gary Brennan frees before Niall Kelly pulled one back for Lissycasey to leave the score at 0-5 to 0-3 at the three quarter stage. David Brassil, Eoghan Donnellan and Shane Brennan had points in as many minutes for the home side before a great Lissycasey move ended with Kevin Hanrahan's fisted effort just going over the bar with the Clondegad defence struggling. Clondegad sealed victory when Cillian Brennan goaled seven minutes from time.
Lissycasey's next game is a home tie against Doonbeg on Sunday next.

U21 Semi-final.  Eire Og 1-11 Lissycasey 0-13. There was heartbreak for the club's under 21 footballers  at Hennessy park in Miltown on Saturday afternoon when they faced defending champions Eire Og in the 2015 A championship semi-final. Ahead 0-7 to 0-3 with six minutes remaining in a contest which produced some impressive football, Lissycasey looked to be on their way to a place in the final. Eire Og rallied and cut the deficit to the minimum with two minutes to play before Killian Normoyle landed a '45 in the final minute of normal time to put the locals two clear. Eire Og refused to throw in the towel and, in injury time, they landed two points to tie the game at 0-8 each and force extra time.At the end of the first period of extra time, Lissycasey were a point in arrears (0-9 to 0-10), having played against the wind. They dominated the second period and with just two minutes to play were two points clear, 0-12 to 0-10. Eire Og pulled one back before substitute Gary Stephens put Lissycasey two clear again as the game went into injury time. In the third minute of injury time, Eire Og struck for the game's only goal, a score which put them through to the final.Lissycasey players, management and supporters were shattered. The team had dominated for the majority of the game but missed chances and taking the wrong option on occasions cost them dearly.Lissycasey; Killian Normoyle; Padraig McNamara, Niall McCarthy, Dara Hanrahan; Barry Lynch, Oisin Hanrahan, Seamus Collins; Brian Cahill, Conor Talty; Michael O'Malley, Conor Finnucane, David Talty; Levi Howard, Ciaran Doohan, Michael Nagle; Subs; Niall Meere for Doohan; Gary Stephens for Howard; Ryan Griffin for Lynch; Lynch for Meere; Howard for McCarthy; Eoin O'Leary for Collins

August 2015:

Junior Championship: Michael Cusack's 0.10 Lissycasey 0.07

Senior Championship: Disappointment for senior footballers:  O'Curry's 0-7 Lissycasey 0-6
Lissycasey's hopes of senior championship honours were ended at Cooraclare on Saturday afternoon when they went under by the minimum margin to O'Currys. The men from the penninsula enjoyed the better of matters in the opening half at the end of which they led by five points, 0-6 o 0-1. Adopting the same tactics as had proved successful against Eire Og in the previous round, Lissycasey struggled throughout the opening half when the men from the West dominated in the key areas and they were somewhat unfortunate not to have had a greater lead when the half time whistle sounded.
Lissycasey did much better after the break but early chances were wasted before a Michael O'Neill point gave them hope. At the three quarter stage it was 0-6 to 0-1 after Niall Kelly pointed for Lissycasey. They continued to improve 
and with seven minutes still to play, the teams were level at 0-6 each after Conor Finnucane had hit the equaliser.
Lissycasey had a couple of chances to take the lead but they failed to find the target. A minute from the end of normal time Lissycasey conceded an unnecessary free and Eoin Troy split the posts for what proved to be the winning score. Three minutes of additional time followed during which Lissycasey had two wides.A big talking point was the decision of match referee Rory Hickey to send off Lissycasey defender Cathal Hill early in the second half. The experienced player was a huge loss to Lissycasey whose best performers on this disappointing afternoon were Seamus Collins, Ryan Griffin, Enda Finnucane and Barry Lynch who was surprisingly replaced at half time;

Junior Championship: Ennistymon 1.03 Lissycasey 0.05. An very understrength Lissycasey team were defeated by Ennistymon in Rd 1 of the Junior Championship played today in Corofin. Ennistymon scored one point the the dying minutes of the first half while Lissycasey were scoreless. Lissycasey scored 5 points 2from Killian Normoyle and 3 from Alan Nagle in the 2nd half while Ennistmon added 1.02 the goal coming from a penalty. Lissycasey: Daire Meaney.

Lissycasey had no subs available on the day.

Senior Championship Rd 1:  St Breckans 1-14  Lissycasey 0-16: Extra time always seemed to be on the cards in this hard-fought contest with two points the biggest lead in normal time with both sides edging in front at various stages throughout. Although they led at half-time in normal and extra time, Lissycasey never pushed on to secure the win and they paid the price against a team who showed true grit over the hour to pick up their first opening round win since 2011.Centre-forward Sean Hayes pointed off his left boot to put Lissycasey in front straight from the throw in. The impressive St Breckans’ duo of Maccon Byrne and Aidan Davidson responded with a point each the latter score coming after a nice one two between Davidson and Pat Nagle. Sean Cormican extended the North Clare club’s lead on the seventh minute after good running off the ball. Freetakers David Talty and Pat Nagle swapped scores at the midway stage to leave two points between the sides. Lissycasey hit three scores on the trot to hold a one point lead. The points coming courtesy of Talty, Enda Finucane and Oisin Hanrahan who was assisted by a Seamus Collins pass. Maccon Byrne picked up Breckans’ first score in ten minutes with twenty six minutes played only for the Aidan Daly managed side to respond with white flags from Brian Cahill and Barry Lynch which gave them a two point advantage at the break.Maccon Byrne and Pat Nagle were on target early on in the second half to level matters and they regained the lead as Dale Masterson finished off a well worked attack with a fine point on the forty third minute.Substitute Conor Finucane made his presence known pointing from his second contribution of the game. Pat Nagle and Brian Cahill traded scores to leave the sides level pegging with fifty four minutes on the clock. Finucane put Lissycasey ahead with less than a minute of stoppage time but a foul on John McDonagh saw the resulting free converted by Maccon Byrne to send the tie to extra time.The men from Lisdoonvarna and Doolin started the first half of extra time the better getting the first three scores via Dale Masterson and Maccon Byrne on the double. However they went the final six minutes of the half without a score as points from Niall Kelly and three from Conor Finucane gave Lissycasey a slender one point lead at half-time.Finucane increased the lead to two points after brushing past the Breckans defence. The all-important goal came courtesy of the evergreen Dennis O’Driscoll who made the link-up play between Aidan Davidson and Stephen Nagle count as he struck a bullet past Joe Hayes in the Lissycasey goal. Byrne and Finucane were both on target with frees but the Neil Hawes trained outfit kept hold of possession in the final few moments to secure a precious win.Over the course of eighty minutes Lissycasey hit a total of fifteen wides which was the equivalent of scores got by their opponents. Their inaccuracy played a big part in the result as did their decision making on the ball. Similarly their indiscipline will need to be looked at as they conceded twenty seven frees which is criminal in Championship football.It is now three defeats in their last four Championship games for the 2007 Champions who must now put their heads down and focus on coming out on top in their round two outing. This is a youthful Lissycasey side with bags of potential and they will learn from this defeat but a win is essential the next day out for the development of the side. Former Clare minor captain, Brian Cahill along with Ryan Griffin and Conor Finucane were prominent for Aidan Daly’s charges.This win meant a lot to St Breckans not just because it ensures their Senior status for 2016 but because they weren’t fancied for this and the shouts from the crowd of “come on the underdog” showed they were eager to set the record straight. Although they gave their opponents some periods of dominance they never panicked which was key to their victory.As the game entered extra time, the expectation still remained that Breckans would wilt but they didn’t instead they dug deep and grinded out the win, a fitting example being goal hero Dennis O’Driscoll playing on through the pain barrier. It will be a bigger challenge the next day out for them but they already possess the grit it is now about staying on top for longer and not allowing the opposition to get as many shots in. Maccon Byrne, Aidan Davidson, Dennis O’Driscoll, Dale Masterson, Paraic Lacey and Pat Nagle played crucial roles in St Breckans’ victory. Lissycasey: Joe Hayes; Martin Moran, Ryan Griffin, Gerry Moran; Seamus Collins, Niall Kelly, Brian Cahill (0-02); Enda Finucane (0-01), Cathal Doohan; Matt O’Shea, Sean Hayes (0-01), Oisin Hanrahan (0-01); David Talty (0-02 2f), Daniel Clohessy, Barry Lynch (0-01).

Cusack Cup: Lissycasey reach Cusack cup semi-final: Lissycasey 3-10 O’Currys 1-8
A strong second half showing at Doonaha on Sunday has earned Lissycasey a place in the semi-final of the Cusack cup.
Lissycasey travelled to play O’Currys in the knowledge that they needed a win to be sure of progressing to the semi-final.There was a lot at stake for the home side also as they needed a win to ensure they retained division 1 status for next season. They showed the greater urgency in a first half in which the eventual winners looked to be in trouble as they struggled to cope with the home outfit who held a four point advantage at half time, 0-7 to 0-3, with Eoin Troy their main scoregetter.Indeed their lead could have been greater but Joe Hayes pulled off a fine save in the second quarter to deny the home side a goal.O’Currys scored first in the second half to extend their lead to five points. Suddenly Lissycasey got a grip on proceedings. The switch of Sean Hayes to centre forward allied to improved form from Brian Cahill and Cathal Doohan saw the visitors hit six unanswered points to go one point clear.As the mid point of the half approached a Martin Moran effort deceived O’Curry’s goalkeeper P.J. Greene and ended up in the net but the Westerners fought back and Eoin Troy struck for a goal to cut the lead to the minimum.

Brian Casey memorial 7’s title for St. Josephs: The fifth annual Brian Casey memorial 7 a side tournament was hosted by Lissycasey GAA on Sunday and ended with victory going to St. Josephs Doora-Barefield who defeated the host club in the final in glorious sunshine, thirteen teams took part in the competition with the initial stages played at three venues, Lissycasey, Ballynacally and Kilmihil.When the group stages were completed the quarter final pairings were Doonbeg v St. Josephs; Kilmurry-Ibrickane v Miltown, Lissycasey A v Kilrush and Lissycasey B v Clondegad.
St. Josephs, who might be considered a little fortunate to have made it into the play offs having struggled in their early games, showed much improved form in the knock out stage and they comfortably accounted for Doonbeg in a game played at Lissycasey’s second pitch at Frure. The second quarter final at this venue saw the hosts’ B team account for 
Clondegad.At the organising club’s main field, Miltown overcame the challenge of their great rivals Kilmurry-Ibrickane while Lissycasey A were too strong for Kilrush.In a well contested and low scoring semi-final, Doora-Barefield had a 
two point win over Miltown while Lissycasey B’s ability to score goals proved decisive in their three goal win over the club’s A team.St. Josephs laid the foundations for their final victory in the opening half at the end of which they led by a point having played against the breeze. Two early second half goals from Luke Brannock and Adrian Fleming helped them to extend their advantage and a late goal from Paudie Nugent sealed the win.Miltown’s Seanie Malone won the top scorer award with a tally of 8-10 and he was presented with his trophy by Lissycasey club chairman Eamonn 
Finnucane who also presented commemorative medals to the referees, Barry Kelly who took charge of the final, Michael Fitzgerald, Jim Hickey, John Hannon, Gerry Keane, Brian Keniry and Fergal Gray.Clare senior football selector Ger Keane made the presentations to the winners and the runners up and paid tribute to all involved on the 
standard of play.Martina Casey, on behalf of the Casey family thanked the participating teams, the referees, the stewards at each of the venues and the main sponsor, Pacnet, Shannon. She presented the Brian Casey memorial cup to the winning St. Josephs captain Sean Flynn who spoke of his team’s delight at winning the title. He praised the host club for the organising of the tournament.Incidentally, St. Josephs were finalists in the inaugural year of the competition. losing the final in a penalty shoot out to Doonbeg while they were beaten semi-finalists a year later.The tournament brought to a conclusion a very successful weekend programme which commenced on Friday evening with an under 10 blitz and 
which also included a Mr and Mrs style social evening in the local hall on Saturday night where the winners were Thomas and Ann Marie Meere from Cloncolman.The members of the winning team were Declan Malone, Eamonn Clohessy, Paudie Nugent, Martin Brooks, Adrian Fleming, Christy O’Brien, Leo Duggan, Luke Brannock, Kevin Frehill, Johnnie O’Brien, Ivor White and Sean Flynn (captain).The Lissycasey B squad comprised Killian Normoyle, Niall McCarthy, Cyril Sheehan, Dermot Nagle, Gerry Moran, Michael Nagle, Danny Clohessy, Conor Talty, Levi Howard, Sean Hayes, Barry Lynch and David Considine.

Cusack Cup:  Clondegad 1-9  Lissycasey 1-8. This round 2 Cusack cup tie at Lissycasey on Bank holiday Monday won’t be remembered as a high quality game but rather as a game in which both sides missed chances. the end result means that Lissycasey are bottom of the table with O'Curry's after  two rounds, both of which they have lost by the minimum margin. Lissycasey have reason to be disappointed with the result as they conceded some ‘soft’ scores on the day, starting with the game’s opening score, the winner’s goal which came after five minutes.Lissycasey goalkeeper Killian Normoyle failed to deal with a high delivery and Cillian Brennan was in quickly to punch the ball to the net. Gary Brennan followed with two points from frees before Lissycasey opened their account through Francis Hayes.The home side did well for the remainder of the half and at the break only a point separated the sides with the winners in front, 1-4 to 0-6. Midway through the second half Lissycasey were reduced to fourteen when Matt Kilroy was sent off. The loss of Francis Hayes to injury was a blow to the home side’s hopes on a day when the introduction of Brian Cahill, Michael O’Neill and Barry Lynch improved things for Lissycasey who took the lead when Niall Kelly converted from the penalty spot.However, they failed to build on this and Clondegad fought back for Paudge McMahon to level before Gary Brennan landed what proved to be the winning point.The Brennan brothers, Brian Carigg, Paudge McMahon and Conor Gavin were prominent throughout for the winners while Lissycasey’s best were Martin O’Connor, Niall Kelly, Francis and Sean Hayes and the aforementioned substitutes, Cahill, O’Neill and Lynch.Clondegad;Kenneth Breen; Brian Murphy, Brian Carigg, Conor McNeilis; Francie Neylon, Conor Gavin, Flan Enright; Gary Brennan (0-40, Eoin Griffin; Pat Coffey, Paudge McMahon (0-2), Eoin Glynn; Eoin Donnellan (0-1), Shane Brennan (0-1), Cillian Brennan (1-0);Subs—Kieran Browne (0-1) for Coffey; David Brassil  for Griffin; Ryan Jennings for Glynn; Niall Lynch for McNeilis;Lissycasey;--Killian Normoyle; Martin O’Connor, Gerry Moran, Seamus Collins; Niall McCarthy (0-1), Niall Kelly (1-0), Cyril Sheehan; Matt O’Shea, Danny Clohessy; Enda Finnucane (0-2), Francis Hayes (0-2), Conor Finnucane; Sean Hayes (0-2), Matt Kilroy, Oisin Talty;Subs—Oisin Hanrahan for Talty; Brian Cahill for McCarthy; Michael O’Neill for C.

March 2015: Lissycasey pipped in opening tie: Kilmurry-Ibrickane 1-8 Lissycasey 0.10. A goal from a penalty in the first half proved the vital score in this opening round tie in the Clare Champion sponsored Cusack cup at Pairc Naomh Mhuire in Quilty on Saturday evening.There was little between two evenly matched sides throughout a well contested game which marked the return to competitive action of Enda Coughlan following a cruciate knee injury. Coughlan was introduced as a substitute in the second half of this entertaining tie won by the holders. The sides had exchanged points in the opening quarter and were level at 0-3 each when the penalty was awarded and teenager Sexton converted. The score helped the winners to a two point half time lead when the score was 1-4 to 0-5, two of the visitor’s points coming from frees by their goalkeeper Joe Hayes. It was point for point throughout the second half and Lissycasey had a chance to draw level near the end before Kilmurry sealed the points with the final score of the tie. Sexton with 1-2 and Michael O’Dwyer with 0-4 were the top scorers for the winners whose other points came from Michael Hogan and Niall Hickey on a day when Francis Hayes (3), Joe Hayes, Matt O’Shea, Conor Finnucane (2 each) and Niall McCarthy scored for Lissycasey.
Lissycasey: Joe Hayes; Dermot Nagle, Gerry Moran, Martin O’Connor; Niall McCarthy, Niall Kelly, Brian Cahill; Matt O’Shea, Danny Clohessy; Michael O’Neill, Francis Hayes, Oisin Hanrahan; Sean Hayes, Niall Meere, Conor Finnucane; Subs: Ryan Griffin for Nagle; Seamus Collins for S.

Brian Casey Memorial Tournament 2014:  POSTPONED:

The Brian Casey memorial tournament has been postponed from this Sunday until early October, due to fixture congestion. At adult level a lot of the participating teams aren't in a position to field a team this Sunday due to Senior Hurling championship this weekend and Senior football Championship next weekend. The U10 Blitz, this evening was also postponed due to bad weather.

Senior Championship: Rd 2: Lissycasey will play Clondegad on Saturday Aug 9th in Cusack Park.

Senior Championship: A winning start for Lissycasey seniors :  Lissycasey 0-13 Liscannor 0-7 
Lissycasey crossed the first hurdle in their bid for Clare senior football championship honours in 2014 when they accounted for Liscannor at Cooraclare on Sunday evening. Lissycasey were first on the scoreboard after Enda Finnucane pointed in the opening minute and were never behind during the tie. they led 0-7 to 0-5 at half time having played against the fresh wind in the opening half and they went on to enjoy the better of matters in the second period 
Liscannor battled to the final whistle but the loss, due to injury, of experienced former Clare player Niall Considine after twenty minutes was a major blow to their hopes of causing an upset against a fitter Lissycasey. The North Clare side struggled to break down a well organised Lissycasey defence and they had to rely of the experienced Alan Clohessy for the majority of their scores. He contributed six points, five of which came from placed balls while Lissycasey’s tally was shared by seven players. Lissycasey manager Barry Donnelly was pleased with the result and agreed that the team’s first half performance, against the breeze, was important. “Liscannor are a tough hard team in championship football and it’s hard to break them down. We knew coming in here it was going to be a battl
e and that’s the way it turned out. We pulled away in the end but they are a hard team to beat and they haven’t been beaten by much over the years. I am just delighted to have got over this hurdle. I have talked to different managers and all agree there is pressure to win your first game because it means you are a senior club for next year. Lissycasey will be concerned that in the five minutes of ‘injury time’ at the end of the first half, they conceded a few needless frees which Clohessy punished to cut the margin to two at the break, 0-7 to 0-5. Lissycasey returned without midfielder Enda Finnucane due to injury and this resulted in the switch of Sean Hayes to midfield with Oisin Hanrahan introduced to the attack. They lost Martin O’Connor to a black card which also represented a blow to their hopes. 
On the plus side for Lissycasey, Cathal Hill returned to action for his first competitive game of the season on a day when Niall McCarthy, Seamus Collins, Joe Hayes and Francis Hayes were prominent in defence while Matt Kilroy, and Alan Nagle got through a lot of good work in attack.

O'Gorman Cup:  Miltown 1-14 Lissycasey 2-6. Eight points ahead after just eight minutes, Lissycasey looked set to win this O'Gorman cup tie at Miltown on Sunday evening.

Conor Finnucane goaled in the first minute and Matt O'Shea and David Considine followed with points before Paul Nagle had the visitor's second goal to leave the 2-2 to 0-0 in front. It should have been greater as Lissycasey missed a clear cup goal chance a minute later. With the Cleary brothers, Conor at midfield and Eoin at corner forward causing a lot of problems for Lissycasey, Miltown gradually got the upper hand and when the half time whistle sounded the score was 2-2 to 0-6 with the home side set to have wind advantage in the second half. In their very first attack in the opening minute of the new period, Eoin Cleary broke through for a goal and they followed with five unanswered points to take command of the game.

Cusack Cup: Eire Og 0-14 Lissycasey 0-10: Level for the fifth time in the game, at 0-10 each, with ten minutes  remaining, a share of the spoils looked the likely outcome in this Cusack cup division 1 tie at Lissycasey on Saturday evening.Eire Og edged in front through Eoin Glynn before Lissycasey were reduced to fourteen when Matt Kilroy picked up a black card and this, added to a harsh yellow in the first half, meant the end of his involvement in the 
game and it proved costly for the home side.A cracking first half ended with the visitors in front by the odd point 
in thirteen. The home side missed a number of good scoring opportunities while Eire Og were denied a goal by an excellent Joe Hayes save when he turned an Eoin Glynn effort over the bar.The townies had the first two points of the second half to put their side three clear but the home side fought back and levelled at 0-10. However it wasn’t enough and the visitors finished strongly with points from Eoin Glynn and Dara Walsh to maintain their place as joint leaders 
of the group.

Cusack Cup: Clondegad 1-9 Lissycasey 0-6: With wins over both Doonbeg and Kilmurry-Ibrickane under their belts, 
Lissycasey travelled to play Clondegad in a confident mood on Sunday in round 3 of the Cusack cup. However, they failed to match the hunger and all round team work of their opponents and can have no complaints about the end result.
The winners raced into a three point lead with scores from Podge McMahon, Francie Nealon and Francis O’Reilly and when the half time whistle sounded they were 0-6 to 0-3 in front having played with the aid of the wind. McMahon added the remaining three points while Lissycasey’s replies came from Conor Finnucane, Matt O’Shea and an Enda Finnucane free.Lissycasey needed to show a big improvement if they were to get back into contention and they had the opening score of the second half when Francis Hayes pointed in the opening minute.Clondegad had other ideas, however, and points from O’Reilly and McMahon saw them open a four point gap with just eight minutes of the half played. After ten scoreless minutes, Lissycasey pointed twice in a minute through Francis Hayes, one from a ’45 to leave two between the sides but they never looked like getting back on terms and the livelier home side finished strongly with a pointed free from McMahon and the game’s only goal from substitute Cillian Brennan with just under five minutes to play. Best for the winners were Flan Enright, Conor Gavin, Francis O’Reilly, Gary Brennan and Podge McMahon.For Lissycasey Seamus Collins, Gerry Moran, Cyril Sheehan and Martin O’Connor did best.
Lissycasey; Joe Hayes; Martin O’Connor Gerry Moran, Seamus Collins; Cyril Sheehan, Matt Kilroy, Dermot Nagle; Matt O’Shea (0-1), Enda Finnucane (0-1); Sean Hayes, Francis Hayes (0-3), Alan Nagle; Oisin Hanrahan, Niall Kelly, Conor Finnucane (0-1); Subs—David Considine for D.

March 2014;

Cusack Cup: Lissycasey  1-9  Doonbeg 0-11. A strong second half showing earned Lissycasey their second win from as many outings when they entertained Doonbeg on Saturday afternoon. In a game played in difficult weather conditions, the home side got the better of matters in the second half having struggled against a  physically stronger Doonbeg in the opening period. Doonbeg had the assistance of a strong wind in the opening half and they were full value for their six point interval lead, 0-9 to 0-3, inter county star David Tubridy having landed five of those scores. On the changeover, Lissycasey got the upperhand and helped by a fortunate goal from Dermot Nagle they went on to dictate matters. The home side reduced the margin to the minimum thanks to a good effort from Sean Hayes but a Shane Ryan point kept Doonbeg hopes of victory alive. David Considine landed a good effort from a 35m free to tie up the scores before Sean Hayes put Lissycasey into the lead for the first time and they went on to open a two point margin.Martin O’Connor, Seamus Collins, Dermot Nagle, Sean Hayes and Michael O’Neill were prominent for the winners;

The late Flan O'Connor: News of the death of Flan O'Connor Lissycasey in New York last week has come as a great shock to all in Lissycasey. Flan was an outstanding member of the Lissycasey team which won the under 21 B football title in 1975. He played all grades of football for the club before emigrating to New York. He is survived by his wife Marie, his son and daughter, by his brothers Sean, Pa, Dan and Tommy and his sister Mary.

Senior Football Semi-Final: Doonbeg 0-15 Lissycasey 0-12: Lissycasey’s wait for a championship victory over Doonbeg at senior level goes on after the latest meeting of the teams.In the semi-final of the 2013 competition at Kilmihil on Saturday, a superb performance from Doonbeg captain David Tubridy played a big part un determining the result of this tie. The Clare forward kicked ten points and displayed superb accuracy from play and from frees. A storming third quarter in which Doonbeg kicked six points while holding their opponents scoreless and the introduction of Shane O’Brien at half time were other contributory factors to their latest win on a day when Lissycasey enjoyed the better of the first half exchanges but only managed to take a one point lead to the interval. Despite the difficult weather conditions, this tie produced some excellent football with some outstanding scores from both sides.Frank O’Dea kicked Doonbeg into the lead in the fourth minute but Lissycasey responded strongly and levelled within a minute through Niall
Kelly. Two Kelly frees at either side of a Conor Finnucane point from play had Lissycasey 0-4 to 0-1 ahead after ten minutes. At this stage Colm Dillon took a grip on matters at midfield and he helped create a number of scoring opportunities from here to the break while he also landed an excellent point.It was 0-6 to 0-3 to Lissycasey after twenty minutes with Doonbeg coming more into the game. Four unanswered points followed and they led 0-7 to 0-6 as the short whistle approached. Lissycasey finished the half strongly and a Matt O’Shea effort had them back in front, 0-8 to 0-7, when the half time whistle sounded.The magpies returned with Shane O’Brien in the action at centre forward and they went on to dominate the third quarter hitting six points without reply, five coming from the boot of Tubridy, to open a five point gap.Two Sean Hayes efforts, one from a sideline, had the margin back to three with ten minutes remaining but this was as close as Lissycasey got. Points were exchanged twice in the remaining time but Doonbeg pulled an extra player back into defence and closed out any possible avenue Lissycasey might have felt was there for scores.Cathal Hill, Gerry Moran and Martin O’Connor worked hard throughout in the Lissycasey defence. Both Enda Finnucane and Matt O’Shea got through some good work at midfield, especially in the opening half while elsewhere Sean Hayes and Niall Kelly were best. Lissycasey: Joe Hayes; Martin Moran, Gerry Moran (Captain), Alan Nagle; Martin O’Connor, Cathal Doohan, Cathal Hill; Enda Finnucane, Matt O’Shea; Sean Hayes, Matt Kilroy, Francis Hayes; Niall Kelly, David Considine, Conor Finnucane; Subs—Dermot Nagle for A.

October 2013:

Minor Div 1 Champions: Lissycasey crowned minor A champions: Lissycasey 2-4 Kilmurry-Ibrickane 1-6: The final scoreline shows that just a point separated Lissycasey and Kilmurry-Ibrickane in the minor A football championship final at Cooraclare on Sunday but ever the most dedicated Kilmurry-Ibrickane supporters will acknowledge that Lissycasey are deserving champions. This was a hard fought tie in very difficult weather conditions. Both sides qualified for the decider in mid week, Kilmurry-Ibrickane beating a fancied Ennistymon side on Tuesday while Lissycasey accounted for Eire Og, tipped by many to win the crown this year, on Thursday. Team captain Michael Nagle, forced out of the game early in the second half with a shoulder injury, accepted the Hennessy memorial cup from Bord na nOg treasurer Joe Kelly. The foundations for this victory were laid in the full back line where Ryan Griffin, in particular, and his flankers Levi Howard and Niall McCarthy excelled for Lissycasey. The new champions got off to a dream start when full forward Ciarán Doohan had the ball in the Kilmurry net inside the first minute. He collected a Conor Finnucane delivery and coolly found the corner of the net on a day when he caused a lot of problems for the loser’s defence. Scores were hard to come by with the conditions causing a lot of problems for the players. Keelan Sexton converted two frees for the runners up in the third and ninth minutes to cut the deficit to the minimum but, at the midpoint of the half, Lissycasey found the Kilmurry net for a second time. When Niall Meere was fouled in the Kilmurry-Ibrickane square, referee Gerry Keane had no hesitation in awarding a penalty which Conor Finnucane expertly dispatched to the net. Finnucane followed with an excellent score from play to stretch Lissycasey’s lead to five points as the half time whistle approached. There were three minutes of ‘injury time’ at the end of the half during which Keelan Sexton (free) and Darragh Pender had points for the runners up to leave the half time score at 2-1 to 0-4 in favour of Lissycasey. The second half was only three minutes old when Lissycasey lost their captain, Michael Nagle, with a shoulder injury. Eoghan O’Leary came into the game and he went on to play a leading role in the win, scoring his side’s final point of the game early in the final quarter. Conor Finnucane and Darren Callinan exchanged points from frees by the tenth minute before Lissycasey goalkeeper Killian Normoyle, superbly converted a ’45 to put his team four clear by the three quarter stage. Early in the final quarter, Eoghan O’Leary landed a fine point for the winners to put them five ahead and this was still the position with three minutes remaining. An Aaron Murrihy point brought Kilmurry to within four which was the position going into ‘injury time’. The West Clare side piled on the pressure and two minutes into the extra period they had a goal from Keith Sexton who was now operating at full forward. Despite a further three minutes, they were unable to get through for the equaliser. In fact, Lissycasey had the better of matters in that time and were on the attack when the final whistle sounded. In what was essentially a team performance, the winner’s defence excelled, particularly the full back trio of Howard, Griffin and McCarthy. Elsewhere Padraig McNamara, Conor Finnucane and Ciarán Doohan were prominent. Credit must also go to the management team of Michael Collins (manager) David Considine, Jamesie Meere, Denis O'Herlihy, Jimmy Collins and Danny Pyne. Lissycasey—Killian Normoyle (0-1), ‘45; Niall McCarthy, Ryan Griffin, Levi Howard; Seamus Collins, Brian Cahill, Padraig McNamara; Conor Talty, Oisin Hanrahan; Gary Stephens, Conor Finnucane (1-2), 1-1 frees, Michael O’Malley; Michael Nagle (captain), Ciarán Doohan (1-0), Niall Meere; Subs—Eoghan O’Leary for Nagle (inj);; Daire Hanrahan for Meere; Cathal Fitzgerald for Stephens.

The late Marty Keane, Benedin: The death last week, after a short illness, of Marty Keane, Benedin, Lissycasey has robbed the local GAA club of one of it's strongest supporters. A regular player with the club throughout the sixties and into the seventies, he played at wing back when Lissycasey won the club's first adult title by beating Killimer in the junior A final in 1971. He went on to serve as a selector with a number of club teams after his playing days ended. He remained a loyal follower of the club teams up to the time of his death and he was particularly delighted when Lissycasey won the county senior title in 2007.At the removal of his remains from Normoyle's funeral home last week, team mates from his playing days and particularly from the 1971 championship winning team together with club officials from that time, former a guard of honour and walked the short distance to the church with his remains. At the entrance to Our Lady of the Wayside Church, members of the current club teams and current club officers formed a guard of honour. His coffin was draped in the maroon and white of his beloved Lissycasey club while the club flag flew at half mast outside the club grounds and also at the Church grounds.

Senior championship. Senior footballers through to quarter finals: Lissycasey 1-11 St. Josephs 1-8
Lissycasey qualified for the senior football championship quarter final when they accounted for St. Josephs Doora-Barefield at Miltown on Saturday evening.The locals were deserving winners but they struggled to get over the winning line. They led from the outset and were six points clear midway through the second half after Martin Moran had converted from the penalty spot following a foul on impressive substitute Oisin Hanrahan. Doora-Barefield had missed a first half penalty when Cathal O'Sullivan's effort was impressively saved by Joe Hayes in the Lissycasey goal. Early in the second half the losers were reduced to fourteen men but just when Lissycasey looked like pulling away, the losers, beaten county finalists for the past two years, fought back, inspired by some excellent long range points from Ivor Whyte.The game ended at 1-8 each but in extra time Lissycasey regained their composure and held their opponents scoreless. Two late points from Oisin Hanrahan sealed victory on a day when Martin O'Connor excelled in defence ably assisted by the Moran brothers and Joe Hayes.

Senior Championship: Doonbeg 1-13 Lissycasey 1-10 (after extra time) Extra time penalty proves decisive.
For the third year in a row, Lissycasey have suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of Doonbeg in the opening round of the Clare senior football championship. At Kilmihil on Saturday evening, extra time was needed to decide the latest clash of the sides. It was a game which produced plenty of talking points not least, from a Lissycasey point of view, being the awarding of a penalty to Doonbeg early in extra time.In the final analysis, the greater experience of Doonbeg won the day and Lissycasey must now re-group for next week's second round which they must win to remain in contention for honours. A blistering start gave Doonbeg a grip on this tie as they raced four points clear after just nine minutes. A further three went by before Lissycasey opened their account through championship debutant Conor Finnucane whose powerful drive just went over Eamonn Tubridy’s crossbar.Two minutes later the magpies were down to fourteen men after referee Rory Hickey, following consultation with his umpires, produced a straight red card to Frank O’Dea following an off the ball incident which left Lissycasey midfielder Enda Finnucane requiring attention.
From here to the half time whistle it was the magpies who played as if they had the extra man and when the short whistle sounded they were four points clear, 0-6 to 0-2.They had the first score of the second half when Enda Doyle pointed but gradually Lissycasey came more into the game from here on. The introduction of the experienced Alan Nagle and teenager Oisin Hanrahan boosted Lissycasey and by the end of the third quarter the margin was down to three, 0-7 to 0-4. The loss of Cathal Doohan to injury was a blow to Lissycasey but his replacement Cyril Sheehan did well.Doonbeg still led by three points inside the last five minutes but Lissycasey continued to pile on the pressure and three minutes from time they were rewarded when David Considine broke through and drilled the ball low to the net.
Doonbeg created a couple of goal scoring chances in normal time but on two occasions goalkeeper Joe Hayes denied Shane O’Brien with good stops.Three minutes into the first period of extra time, referee Rory Hickey penalised Lissycasey captain Gerry Moran as he and Enda Doyle fought for possession and pointed to the penalty spot. Brian Dillon drilled the spot kick low to the corner and it proved to be the crucial score.At the turnover just the minimum separated the sides, 1-10 to 1-9 in the magpies favour. In the second period Shane Ryan proved to be their hero with three points from play. Ryan hadn’t started the game but came into the action early in the second half of normal time. Twenty minutes late he was replaced but returned for the second half of extra time to make a huge contribution.

Minor Football: Lissycasey 3-16 Cratloe 0-1
After the disappointment of losing to Ennistymon in round 2, Lissycasey bounced back to winning ways with a convincing win over Cratloe at the South East Clare club’s venue in round 3.With a much changed line out, the visitors controlled this game from the outset and would not have been flattered by a much bigger winning margin.With central attackers Ciarán Doohan (centre forward) and Michael O’Malley contributing 1-9, Lissycasey were never in trouble. Doohan’s goal came in the first half and helped the winners to a 1-12 to 0-1 interval lead. Indeed that lead could have been greater but Cratloe goalie Eoin O’Kelly made a fine save from Conor Finnucane’s penalty midway through the half. Early in the second half Lissycasey won another penalty and this time Finnucane send O’Kelly the wrong way as he converted. Lissycasey’s third goal came from Cathal Fitzgerald a short time later.

A strong wind blew directly down the pitch towards the dressing room end and players also had to contend with a heavy drizzle throughout. Ennistymon had first use of the wind and they raced into a 0-5 to 0-0 lead before Barry Lynch, making his Cusack cup debut, opened the home side’s account against the side trained by his father Colin. The crucial score came shortly before Michael Talty sounded the half time whistle. Francis Hayes found fellow county senior panellist Niall Kelly down the left wing and his pass put David Considine through for the game’s only goal. The visitors finished the half with a brace of points to lead 0-7 to 1-1 at the break. Ennistymon scored first in the second half when Joey Rouine converted a free but from here on Lissycasey had the better of matters. Martin O’Connor, who had earlier helped Kilmaley to a good victory in the Clare Champion cup replaced the injured Alan Nagle before points from Sean Hayes and David Considine left two points between the sides. Midway through the second half goalkeeper Joe Hayes landed a 45 to leave the minimum between the sides. At this time Lissycasey brought in Conor Finnucane to the attack. He had earlier played for the Clare minors against Kerry in the Munster championship before, together with Clare minor goalkeeper Killian Normoyle, dashing back from Tralee to take their places on the Lissycasey bench. Shortly after his introduction Finnucane took a pass from David Considine and landed the equaliser and he followed with two more excellent scores to seal a merited win for the home side.

Cusack Cup Round 2:  Lissycasey 1-10 Eire Og 3-4: Lissycasey followers will wonder for a while to come where referee Jim Hickey found five minutes of 'injury time' in this Cusack cup round two game at Eire Og on Saturday. With the last kick of the game, Eire Og's Shane Daniels kicked the equaliser and earn his side's first league point of this campaign.

Three minutes later Shane Daniels, with the last kick of the game, levelled the tie just after Lissycasey’s Enda Finnucane had picked up a second yellow.

These teams have me on a number of occasions in recent times and battled it out at the end of last season to determine who would lose their senior status. After a replay, Lissycasey won that game sending Miltown down to intermediate football for the first time in the club's history. Not surprisingly, Miltown came to Lissycasey on Sunday with a full squad, determined to get some measure of revenge that last October's
result and for a long time it looked like they would go home with the points. Physically stronger, they enjoyed the upper-hand in the first half and Lissycasey were fortunate only to be two points behind when Jim Hickey sounded the half time whistle.The foundation for this Lissycasey victory was laid in defence. Here the locals put in some tremendous tackles in the second half in particular to deny the visitors on more than one occasion.Miltown led 0-5 to 0-3 at the interval and they held this two point advantage for much of the third quarter. An excellent Lissycasey move which began in defence, ended with David Considine kicking the game's only goal and while Miltown fought back to level through the impressive Conor Cleary, Clare goalkeeper Joe Hayes landed a '45 to give his team a lead they would hold to the finish. Conor Finnucane sealed victory with a point in injury time.Lissycasey;--Joe Hayes (0-1); Martin O'Connor, Gerry Moran, Martin Moran; Oisin Hanrahan, Cyril Sheehan, Dermot Nagle; Enda Finnucane, Danny Clohessy (0-2); Sean Hayes (0-1), Francis Hayes, Oisin Talty; David Considine (1-1), Niall Kelly (0-1), Conor Finnucane (0-1);

O'Gorman Cup: St. Josephs 1-9 Lissycasey 0-11: A new look Lissycasey senior team went under by a point to St. Josephs in the opening round of the O'Gorman cup at Gurteen, on Wednesday. After playing with the aid of the breeze in the opening half, Lissycasey led by seven points, 0-10 to 0-3 at the interval. Conor Finnucane, one of four players making their senior debuts, kicked five of those points with Matt Kilroy and Paul Nagle landing two each and David Considine kicking the remaining point.Considine converted a free early in the second half but from then on the physically stronger home side took a grip on the game. A dubious penalty inside the last quarter was converted by Johnnie O'Brien for the home side and this proved to be the vital score.It was a busy day for Seamus Collins who, earlier in the afternoon, lined out for West Clare Colleges in the Frewan cup quarter final which they lost to Killorglin
The decision of the Clare senior football management to refuse Francis Hayes permission to play was a big disappointment to the club. Francis is a member of the Clare senior panel but has yet to make his league debut and according to the rules of the competition he is eligible to play until such time as he plays league football.

Minor Div 2 Replay: Minors lose out in final replay: Kilfenora-Liscannor-Ml Cusack's 1-8 Lissycasey 0-5
The 2012 playing season ended on a disappointing note for Lissycasey as their minor footballers suffered a six point defeat in the County division 2 championship final replay at Shanahan McNamara Park in Doonbeg on Saturday. Lissycasey never managed to produce the form they had shown in the drawn tie and struggled in a number of areas. The North Clare amalgamation showed the greater hunger for victory and were sharper when it came to winning 'the breaking ball". Lissycasey will also be disappointed with the fact that they failed to capitalise on a number of excellent scoring chances, both from play and from frees. The winners had the opening score but Lissycasey responded with three unanswered points. They should have stretched their lead to five or six points during this period of dominance but missed chances proved costly. The winners finished the half strongly to lead at the break, 0-4 to 0-3.The amalgamation had the first score of the second half but Lissycasey fought back to level at 0-5 each by the three quarter stage.During this period they missed some good scoring opportunities also, The crucial score came seven minutes from time when the winners hit the only goal of the game.Seamus Collins, Levi Howard, Oisin Hanrahan and Brian Cahill were best for Lissycasey who lost Niall Meere to injury in the pre match warm-up. Lissycasey: Killian Normoyle (0-1); Seamus Collins, Padraic Neylon, Levi Howard; Conor Talty, Oisin Hanrahan, Mikey Nagle; Brian Cahill, Darragh McMahon; Colm O'Rourke (capt), David Talty (0-1), Barry Lynch; Eoghan O'Leary (0-1) Niall McCarthy (0-1) Conor Finnucane (0-1);Subs---Darragh Gregan for O'Rourke; Ciaran Doohan for McCarthy; Dylan Cahill for Finnucane

October 2012

U21"A" championship: Ennistymon 2-7 Lissycasey 1-9. Lissycasey's dream of capturing the under 21 A football title in 2012 died at Corofin on Bank holiday Monday when they went out of the title race to Ennistymon. In 2009 Lissycasey defeated Ennistymon by the minimum margin in the minor A football championship final. Three years on these side clashed in the under 21 A football championship quarter final when the minimum margin again separated them at the final whistle but this time Ennistymon were in front.The latest meeting produced some fine football and at the end of an exciting hour's play the North Clare side had booked a place in the semi-final and a meeting with Corofin.Points were exchanged twice in the opening quarter with Cathal McConigley and Barry Keating on the scoreboard for the winners while Danny Clohessy and Sean Hayes replied for Lissycasey.The winners struck a vital blow at the mid point of the half when Keating kicked the game's first goal and the winners added points from Ciaran Devitt, Cathal Malone and Cathal McConigley to open as six point gap. An Enda Finnucane pointed free for Lissycasey left his side trailing by five at half time, 0-3 to 1-5.Lissycasey stepped up as gear on the resumption and early points from Matt O'Shea and Sean Hayes cut the deficit to three. However, they were punished severely seven minutes into the half when they lost possession in midfield and Ennistymon pounced for a Brian Houlihan goal.To their credit Lissycasey came storming back with minors Barry Lynch and David Talty to the fore. Points from Michael O'Neill and Finnucane were followed by a Matt O'Shea goal at the turn of the final quarter leaving just the minimum between the sides.Play swung from end to end in the final quarter during which each side pointed twice but Lissycasey just could not get through the an equaliser. Lissycasey whose best players were Martin O'Connor, Eoin Enright, Enda Finnucane, Matt O'Shea, Barry Lynch and David Talty.Lissycasey;--Kevin Moran; Ronan McCarthy, Martin O'Connor, Cyril Sheehan; Eoin Enright, Kevin Hanrahan Tom Collins; Matt O'Shea (1-1) Enda Finnucane (0-3); Michael O'Neill (0-1) Sean Hayes (0-2) Eoin Fitzgerald; Killian McNamara, Danny Clohessy (0-1) John Cabey; Subs: Barry Lynch for Fitzgerald; David Talty (0-1 for McNamara

Minor Final:  Minor B football title still up for grabs: Lissycasey 2-7 Ml. Cusack's-Liscannor-Kilfenora 2-7
In a game in which the sides were level on five occasions and in which the lead changed hands on a couple of occasions, a draw was probably the fairest result when Lissycasey and the North Clare amalgamation of Ml. Cusack's-Liscannor and Kilfenora clashed in the final of the minor B football championship at Hennessy Park in Miltown on Saturday.With the sides level at 0-1 each, Lissycasey struck the first major blow when, in the eleventh minute, team captain Colm O'Rourke found the net after David Talty's delivery caused problems for the amalgamation's defence.That goal separated the sides as the half time whistle approached but then the combination outfit struck for a goal to tie up the game at 1-3 each which was the position at the interval.Both sides made changes for the second half with Lissycasey bringing in Niall Meere to their attack in place of Daire Gregan .Lissycasey made a lively start and hit two early points by midfielder David Talty. Twenty scoreless minutes followed in which both sides had chances. The introduction of Brian Cahill boosted Lissycasey's performance and they put an impressive move together which ended with a powerful David Talty goal six minutes from the end of normal time.Four points in front at this stage, Lissycasey looked set for victory but back came the North Clare boys and when Lissycasey spilled possession at midfield, they launched a counter attack which ended with a goal. They quickly kicked the equaliser from a free and with a minute of the regulation sixty to go, they hit the front.Six minutes of 'injury time' were signalled, there had been a stoppage for an injury early in the final quarter, and in the second of these Conor Finnucane kicked the equaliser from an acute angle.When Lissycasey were awarded a free on the 45m line they called on goalkeeper Killian Normoyle and he made no mistake when converting. Again, it looked like the title was on the way to Lissycasey but it wasn't to be and the amalgamation kicked the leveller again, in the eighth minute of added time, to set up a replay which will take place on Sunday week, November 4th. Lissycasey, Killian Normoyle; Seamus Collins, Padraic Neylon, Levi Howard; Conor Talty, Oisin Hanrahan, Mickey Nagle; David Talty, Darragh McMahon; Conor Finnucane, Darragh Gregan, Colm O'Rourke; Eoghan O'Leary, Barry Lynch, Niall McCarthy.

U21: Lissycasey 2-7 Miltown St. Josephs 1-9. For the third week in succession, Lissycasey and Miltown were iin opposition at Cooraclare. After two contests in a senior championship relegation play off, Lissycasey continued their winning form against Miltown when they emerged with a one point win in Saturday's under 21 A championship first round. Playing with the aid of the wind in the first half, Miltown made the better start and were 0-4 to 0-1 in front at the end of the first quarter, Lissycasey's score coming from an Enda Finnucane free.Finnucane and Matt O'Shea had points for the winners to cut the margin to the minimum before Miltown went 0-6 to 0-3 in front with the half time whistle approaching.With the game in injury time at the end of the opening half, Lissycasey full forward Danny Clohessy, who was causing a lot of problems for Miltown, broke through for the opening goal which left the sides level at the halfway stage.Points were swapped early in the second half before a delivery from Michael O'Neill caused all sorts of problems in the Miltown defence and Clohessy got the vital touch to put Lissycasey a goal clear. Michael O'Neill added a point before the end of the third quarter when the score stood at 2-5 to 0-8 in Lissycasey's favour. Sean Hayes and Enda Finnucane added points and Lissycasey led by five as the full time whistle approached.Miltown piled on the pressure in search of a leveller and they pointed in injury time. In the fourth minute of added time a strong Miltown attack ended with a Miltown goal . The final whistle sounded after the kick out and Lissycasey had held on for victory and a place in the quarter finals where they play Ennistymon on Monday next Oct 29th in Corofin.

Senior Relegation: Lissycasey 0-11 Miltown 0-11.Lissycasey's dream of playing in the senior championship in 2013is still alive after this draw with Miltown in a relegation play off at a sun splashed Cooraclare on Saturday. Things didn't look good in the early stage as a nervous Lissycasey struggled to get a grip on the game. Miltown made the better start eand should have had a goal inside the first five minutes when they were awarded a penalty but Lissycasey's Joe Hayes made amends for conceding the free when he pulled off a great save from Eoin Curtin.Miltown had the best of the first quarter at the end of which they had opened a two point lead. They stretched this to three but Lissycasey finished the half strongly. However, poor finishing cost them dearly and they went to the break two points adrift, 0-5 to 0-7. Lissycasey were much better in the second half and by the end of the third quarter they had taken a one point advantage. they failed to build on this and three times in the next ten minutes the sides were level. Lissycasey went in front again a minute from time but, in the third minute of injury time, inter county player Gordon Kelly levelled for Miltown.

Junior Football: Clarecastle 3-11 Lissycasey 1-4 Lissycasey's hopes of progressing to the semi-finals of the junior A championship were well and truly killed off at Eire Og on Saturday when they were comprehensively beaten by Clarecastle. Lissycasey struggled from the outset and were fortunate to be only four points behind, 0-1 to 0-5, at the interval, Clarecastle had much the better of the first half but poor finishing cost them dearly.In the early stages of the second half, Lissycasey staged a bit of a recovery but they were outplayed in too many positions on the day

Senior Relegation: St. Senan's, Kilkee 1-11 Lissycasey 0-9 Just five years after reaching the top of the football ladder in Clare when winning the senior championship title, Lissycasey are on the verge of losing their senior status. Indeed, Sunday's disappointing loss to St. Senan's Kilkee has sent Lissycasey into the intermediate grade, provided an amalgamation comes forward to compete in next season's championship.In the new format for the senior competition introduced in 2012, it was a condition of the competition that two teams be relegated to be replaced by the intermediate champions and by an amalgamation. Should more than one amalgamation seek to compete in the race for the premier title next year, they would be made play off to determine who would get the place available.At this time there is no indication that there will be a request for an amalgamation and a recent county board meeting decided that the relegation play offs would be completed to leave just one team. Lissycasey and Miltown at the two clubs battling it out to avoid the drop at this stage and its expected that they will play off in the coming weeks with the winner of that game keeping their fingers crossed that they will retain their senior status for 2013.Back to the game with Kilkee and the Lissycasey side can have few complaints. On the day they failed to match the hunger shown by Kilkee and were always chasing the game.The game's only goal was the crucial score and it came five minutes from the break. Kilkee midfielder Dara Kelly burst through to find the net from close range and help his side to a 1-6 to 0-6 half time lead. They almost had a second goal in the opening minute of the second half. Lissycasey fought back to within two points but Kilkee grew inconfidence as the game progresses and deserved their win on a day when Lissycasey failed to re-produce the form which saw them claim the Garry cup title a week earlier.

Garry Cup Final: Lissycasey 2-9 Liscannor 1-5 Lissycasey bridged a seven year gap when winning the Garry cup, (Division 2, senior league) at sun splashed Cooraclare on Saturday evening. The club last won this title in 2005.Already assured of division 1 (Cusack cup) football next season, Lissycasey went into Saturday evening's game determined to get back to winning ways after their disappointing exit from the senior championship when they lost to Cratloe a week earlier. This win should serve as a timely boost for the team ahead of this Sunday's crucial relegation play off with St. Senan's Kilkee, On Saturday evening, Lissycasey started well and took a two point lead thanks to the accuracy of David Considine. As the mid point of the first half approached Liscannor struck for a goal through Clare captain AlanClohessy who accounted for all of his side's scores. Lissycasey continued to apply the better of the exchanges and went back in front on the half hour mark when Niall Kelly had their opening goal after he won possession from a Dermot Nagle delivery. It was 1-4 to 1-2 for the winners at half time.Points were exchanged early in the second half before goalkeeper Joe Hayes came up field to convert a 50m free and put his side three clear. Then, in the eleventh minute, they were awarded a penalty following an excellent move and Martin Moran duly converted to put six points between the sides.There was never really a doubt about the result after this on a day when Martin O'Connor, Cathal Hill, Francis Hayes and Niall Kelly were always prominent. After the game Clare GAA treasurer Bernard Keane paid tribute to both teams before calling on Joe Garry to present the cup that commemorates his later father Michael to Lissycasey captain Gerry Moran.

Cratloe scored the first three points of the second half but then Lissycasey regained the initiative and struck for some well worked scores. However, they again missed good scoring chances in this period and this is something they will have to work on ahead of the semi-final.

Under 16 Div 1 Final. Lissycasey 2-8 Eire Og 1-9.A blistering opening quarter in which they scored 1-7 without reply laid the foundations for Lissycasey's victory over Eire Og in the final of the under 16 A football championship at Cusack Park on Sunday evening. In winning the title, Lissycasey bridged a twelve year gap to their only previous win in this competition which was in 1999.From the outset of this campaign these teams had been installed as the favourites to contest the final. For the past two years the sides  have produced some great contests and they didn't disappoint on Sunday evening. A runaway victory looked to be on the cards when Lissycasey went 1-7 to 0-0 ahead in the first quarter of Sunday's game. They produced some outstanding football in that period and fully deserved their lead with the points coming from Padraic McNamara, Ciaran Doohan (3), Conor Finnucane, Michael O'Malley and Oisin Hanrahan while O'Malley scored the goal finishing off a tremendous move in which Oisin Hanrahan made a great break from midfield. The switch of Eimhin Courtney from corner forward to midfield helped Eire Og get back into contention and in the closing minutes of the half he landed a brace of points to leave the half time score at 1-7 to 0-2.Lissycasey had the opening score of the second half when McNamara, as he had done in the opening half, struck in the first minute.Three
points from Courtney, two from frees, gave the Ennis side confidence but they were rocked eleven minutes into this half when the impressive O'Malley struck for his and the winner's second goal when he rose high to fist a Brian Cahill delivery to the net.It was to be the winner's final score and from here to the finish they had to work hard in defence. Fifteen scoreless minutes followed  O'Malley's second goal but Eire Og kept up the pressure. The introduction of substitutes Brian Colleran and Shane Jordan brought freshness to their attack and each had a point before Jack Keating
got a vital touch for their goal with two minutes remaining. Indeed Lissycasey's goalie Daire Meaney made an excellent save just before that when he deflected Jordan's snap shot over the bar. These scores cut the margin to four points and clearly gave the town side new hope.The continued to pile on the pressure and the margin was back to three when Courtney hit his sixth of the evening by converting a 13m free in the second minute of 'injury time'. A poor kick out saw
Lissycasey under pressureagain but Stephen Jordan's effort went over the bar. It proved to be the final score as the final whistle followed the kick out.Killian Normoyle was outstanding at full back for the winners who also had excellent performances from Levi Howard, team captain Oisin Hanrahan, Padraic McNamara, Ciarán Doohan and the game's top scorer, Michael O'Malley.After the game Bord na nOg chairman John Smith presented the cup to Lissycasey's Oisin Hanrahan and Shane Keating.

Senior Football Championship Quarter Final: Cratloe 2-7 Lissycasey 0-6.A strong start, which saw them race into a five point lead inside the opening quarter, laid the foundations for Cratloe’s merited win over Lissycasey in the first of the Clare senior football quarter finals at Cusack Park on Saturday. Having elected to play into the stiff wind, Cratloe dominated the early exchanges and the Lissycasey defence was breached in the seventh minute when Sean Collins raced through for the game’s first goal.From here on Lissycasey were fighting an uphill battle against the more experienced outfit and this experience proved to be a key element on the day.To their credit, Lissycasey did well in the second quarter but poor distribution and failure to seriously trouble the winner’s defence proved costly. In the early stages of the second half Lissycasey enjoyed plenty of possession but they failed to turn this into scores and Cratloe found the range in the final quarter and pulled away for a deserved win and a place in the senior football championship for the first time in the club’s history.With just four survivors from the side which started the 2007 final when Lissycasey were champions, the team lacked experience. When the disappointment of this defeat eases, Lissycasey will realise that this is a very young side and that there is a very bright future ahead, provided, of course, that emigration  doesn't hit again as it did in the early part of this year when the likes of Anthony and James Kelly and Gerard Murphy joined such as Cathal McMahon in Australia.Injuries didn't help chances on Saturday with Alan Nagle and Sean Hayes both ruled out of contention due to leg injuries. On Saturday Martin O'Connor was again outstanding at corner back while Gerry Moran and Cyril Sheehan worked extremely hard throughout. According to team manager Barry Keating "Cratloe got the start that we hoped for. They won the ‘breaking ball’ and the end result was a fair reflection of the play. At the start of the second half we had possession and didn’t take our chances. It’s a disappointing end to the year but we are a work in progress and hopefully we will learn from the experience and move on next year".

Senior Championship.  Lissycasey 0.09 Ennistymon 0.08. A powerful second half performance saw Lissycasey turn a three point interval deficit into a one point win in this senior championship game at Cooraclare on Saturday. The win has qualified Lissycasey for the championship quarter final where their opponents will be Cratloe in two weeks time. It was a result that didn't appear likely at the half way point when Lissycasey trailed , 0-4 to 0-7 and they were a little lucky not to have been further behind at this point. During the first half Cathal Doohan and Sean Hayes were introduced for Alan and Dermot Nagle and early in the second half Danny Lynch returned to duty and immediately made an impact when he he kicked an excellent point. Inspired by the magnificent Michael Melican at centre back, Lissycasey dominated the second period and this is reflected in the fact that they confined Ennistymon to just a point in this time. Points from Danny Lynch, Enda Finnucane and Niall Kelly (free) had the sides level with ten minutes remaining before Finnucane kicked what proved to be the winning point when he converted a 20m free with six minutes remaining. Outstanding for for Lissycasey were Michael Melican, Martin O'Connor, Enda Finnucane, Joe Hayes, Cathal Hill and Gerry Moran.  Lissycasey: Joe Hayes; Alan Nagle, Gerry Moran, Martin O’Connor; Cathal Hill, Michael Melican, Martin Moran; Danny Clohessy, Enda Finnucane; Matt O’Shea, Francis Hayes, Dermot Nagle; Derek McMahon , Niall Kelly, Paul Nagle.

August 2011:

U21 Semi-Final.  Cratloe 0-7 Lissycasey 0-06 Competition favourites Cratloe qualified for the U21 A Football Championship final when they overcame the challenge of Lissycasey in a hard fought semi-final at Gurteen on Sunday evening but the losers have reason to be disappointed as they failed to capitalise on a lot of good scoring chances on the evening. It was a hugely disappointing result for Lissycasey as they created enough chances to have taken at least a draw from the outing. In the second half in particular, a lot of Lissycasey attacks ended with the ball being kicked into the hands of Cratloe goalkeeper Jamie Joyce. Cratloe's greater experience proved decisive as Liam Markham, Conor McGrath, Cathal McInerney and Paudge Collins, all players with a lot of inter county experience, made vital contributions. From the start, it was clear that this would be a close contest and the game was twelve minutes old before the first score was registered. It came to Lissycasey when Niall Kelly pointed after Sean Hayes’ effort had rebounded off the upright. Cratloe had the better of matters for the next ten minutes during which time they kicked four points before Lissycasey finished the half with an Enda Finnucane effort to leave the half time score at 0-4 to 0-2 in Cratloe's favour. With wind advantage to come, Lissycasey’s chances of causing an upset looked good but within a minute of the resumption Cathal McInerney converted a 13m free for the winners, putting down a marker that they would not be easily beaten. Lissycasey had the better of matters for the remainder of the third quarter and points from Sean Hayes, Enda Finnucane and Niall Kelly brought the sides level by the mid point of the half. Indeed Lissycasey could well have been in front at this stage but goalkeeper Joyce saved well from Matt O’Shea while a combination of poor finishing and good defensive play on the part of Liam Markham and Sean Hynan meant that Lissycasey never managed to get in front. Early in the final quarter Cathal McInerney kicked his side back into the lead with a fine effort from play and he added another minor from a 30m free six minutes from the end to strengthen their chances of victory. An excellent effort from Dermot Nagle closed the gap to the minimum again but try as they did, Lissycasey failed to add to their tally and Cratloe held on for victory by the minimum margin. Scorers: Cratloe. Cathal McInerney (0-3), 2 frees; Conor McGrath (0-2) Liam Markham (free) Wes De Loughrey (0-1) each.  Lissycasey: Enda Finnucane (2 frees) Niall Kelly (1 free), 0-2 each; Sean Hayes, Dermot Nagle (0-1) each.   Lissycasey: Kevin Moran; Cyril Sheehan Martin O’Connor, Ronan McCarthy; Tom Collins, Francis Hayes, Cathal Doohan; Enda Finnucane, Matt O’Shea; Daniel Clohessy, Niall Kelly, Kevin Hanrahan; Sean Hayes, Eoin Fitzgerald, Dermot Nagle; Subs: Michael O’Neill for Fitzgerald (half time) Eoin Enright for Collins (50 minutes); Fitzgerald for Hanrahan (51 minutes).

U14 Championship: Clondegad crowned u-14 B champions: Clondegad  2-10  Lissycasey  2-7 (after extra time)
Clondegad were crowned Clare under 14 B football champions at Cusack Park on Monday evening after a lively final which required extra time to separate the teams.A physically stronger Clondegad lasted the extra period better and this proved decisive in their march to victory over their fellow parishioners. A goal from Mark Gavin helped the winners to a two point lead at the end of the opening half of normal time when the score was 1-2 to 0-3.The second half produced some great football with both sides enjoying periods of dominance. A Padraic McNamara goal brought Lissycasey back into contention when the game looked to be slipping from them midway through the half but Clondegad hit back quickly for their second goal which came from Daniel Cleary.Lissycasey looked to have snatched victory when centre back and captain Niall McCarthy went up field and kicked his side's second goal in the final minute. The score gave Lissycasey a one point lead but Clondegad fought back and won a free which Cillian Brennan cooly converted with the last kick of the game to send the tie into extra time.In the first period of extra time Brennan kicked two points to edge his side in front again. While Gary Stephens pulled one back for Lissycasey, the winners continued to maintain a slight upperhand and further points from Mark Gavin and Malachy Lynch sealed victory.Impressive for the winners were Cathal Tighe, Ronan Barry, Malachy Lynch, Cillian Brennan, Mark Gavin and Daniel Cleary while Lissycasey's best were Roy Griffin, Niall McCarthy, Padraic McNamara, Gary Stephens and Cathal Considine.**After the game Bord na nOg chairman Billy Archbold presented the cup to the winning captain Cathal Tighe.Clondegad;  Cillian McNeilis; Sean Meaney, Robert Neylon, Peter Casey; Conor Lynch, Cathal Tighe, Cathal Breen; Ronan Barry, Malachy

Senior Championship:  Liscannor 1.09 Lissycasey 1.08. There was heartbreak for the senior footballers at Quilty on Saturday when they lost out by the minimum margin to Liscannor in round two of the senior championship. While the locals are still not out of the title race, should they fail to make  it to the play offs, they will look back at this tie and wonder how they didn't get something out of this game. The sides were level at 0.05 each at halftime before Lissycasey pushed four points clear in the third quarter. However, they failed to maintain this advantage and ended up losing by a point. Michael Melican  moved from centre back to centre forward for the second half and ended up scoring his side's only goal on a day when Paul Nagle kicked some excellent points. In the final round of games Lissycasey must beat Ennistymon and hope that Doonbeg beat Liscannor if they are to have a chance of progressing to the play offs. If those results materialise then it will be down to scoring difference to decide which of Lissycasey,Liscannor and Ennistymon will accompany Doonbeg to the quarter final.

July 2011:

   Brian Casey Memorial Tournament: The inaugural Brian Casey memorial seven a side football tournament was hosted by Lissycasey GAA club on Saturday and the event proved to be a huge success. Fifteen teams competed for the title in four groups with the group games staged at Lissycasey's two pitches, Ballynacally and Kilmihil. When these had concluded the quarter final line up was Ennistymon v Wolfe Tones, St. Josephs (Doora-Barefield) v Kilmihil; Doonbeg v Kilrush and Kilkee v Clondegad. In the first semi-final St. Josephs proved too strong for Clondegad winning on a score of 3-10 to 0-4 while Doonbeg accounted for Ennistymon on a 1-12 to 1-9 scoreline. he final provided great entertainment for the big attendance. The teams were level at 1-3 each at half time before Doonbeg opened a five point lead after the break. Then two goals in as many minutes had the Doora-Barefield men in front with less than a minute to play but Doonbeg hit back for the equalising point leaving the sides tied at 2-7 each at full time. This resulted in a penalty shoot out with each side having three penalties. Colm Dillon proved to be the Doonbeg hero when he saved Aidan O'Connor's effort and then converted his side's final kick to see them crowned champions. David and Eamonn Tubridy were the other penalty scorers for the winners while Johnnie O'Brien and Enda Lyons converted penalties for St. Josephs. Doonbeg had further reason for celebration when David Tubridy picked up the tournament's top scorer award. Behind by three points to St. Josephs's Johnnie O'Brien going into the final, the Doonbeg sharpshooter scored 1-4 in the final to seal the award.At the presentation ceremony after the final the runners up medals were presented to St. Josephs by Lissycasey club chairman Johnnie Nealon who thanked all of the participating teams fortheir support for the event.The members of the St. Josephs panel were Chris, David and Johnnie O'Brien, Ger Fannin, Gavin O'Sullivan, Paul Dullaghan, Aidan O'Connor, Kevin Dilleen, Mark Raftery, Enda Lyons and their captain Sean Flynn.The host club chairman also made presentations to the tournament referees Michael Rock, Jim Hickey, Fergal Gray, Joe Garry, Michael Fitzgerald, Gerry Corry, David Clancy and Anthony Culligan who took charge of the final.

Junior Championship: Kilmihil  3-14  Lissycasey 0-8 : When Lissycasey trailed by just a point with fifteen minutes remaining in this junior A football championship first round at Cooraclare on Friday evening, there was a strong chance that they would drive on and score a win. However, a missed free which would have levelled the game followed by the missing of a golden goal opportunity proved very costly and Kilmihil hit back for two goals in quick succession and this killed off the Lissycasey challenge. Lissycasey struggled throughout the first half and trailed by two points at half time, 0-5 to 0-3. Kilmihil had the first score of the second half but then Lissycasey hit two points in quick succession from David McMahon and Sean Hayes. Missed frees were to prove costly in the third quarter before a stronger and fitter Kilmihil side pulled away for a merited win. Lissycasey scorers on the evening were David McMahon, Sean Hayes (0-2) each, Noel Finnucane, Kevin Hanrahan, David Clancy and Kevin Moran (0-1) each Lissycasey: Stephen McGovern; Brendan O'Connor, Paul Clancy, Colm Clancy; Fergal Talty, Shane Normoyle, Tom Collins; Noel Finnucane, Michael Coghlan; David McMahon, Kevin Hanrahan, Kieran Clancy; Aaron Talty, Sean Hayes, Kevin Moran; Subs--David Clancy for K.

June 2011:

U21 Quarter Final: Lissycasey 2-15 Eire Og 1-9.A superb start to the second half which saw them score 1-5 without reply helped Lissycasey lay the foundations for this victory over Eire Og in the quarter final of the under 21 A football championship at Ballyea on Sunday.Trailing by two points, 0-7 to 1-6, at half time after playing with the assistance of the breeze, things didn't look good for Lissycasey, last year's beaten finalists.They made a blistering start to the second half and an excellent goal from Eoin Fitzgerald put them in the driving seat on a day when Sean Hayes and Enda Finnucane each kicked four points while other scorers were Niall Kelly, Dermot Nagle, Danny Clohessy, Kevin Hanrahan, Cillian McNamara and Ronan McCarthy who scored the side's second goal.In the semi-final, Lissycasey will play Cratloe or Clondegad.  The Lissycasey mentors are David Considine (manager), Shane Normoyle, Cathal Talty and Paudie Carmody.

Garry Cup: Lissycasey 0-12 Ennistymon  0-9: The good form shown by Lissycasey's senior footballers in recent weeks continued on Saturday when they defeated Ennistymon in the final round of the league (Garry cup). The win ensures that Lissycasey won't be relegated from the division, something that would have happened had Lissycasey failed to win.The foundations for this win were laid in the first half half at the end of which Lissycasey trailed by two points, 0-3 to 0-5, after playing against the very stiff wind. Inside the first ten minutes of the second half Lissycasey had scored four unanswered points to take a two point lead but Ennistymon hit back to level and it was clear that  the winners would have to battle all the way to the end.This they did and when the final whistle sounded they were deserving of their three point advantage. Lissycasey; Joe Hayes; Alan Nagle, Gerry Moran, Martin O'Connor; Cathal Hill (0-1) Francis Hayes (0-1), Martin Moran (0-1); Enda Finnucane (0-1) Danny Clohessy; Matt O'Shea (0-1) Michael Melicàn, Oisin Talty (0-2); Derek McMahon, Niall Kelly (0-3) Paul Nagle; Subs--Dermot Nagle (0-2) for McMahon; Cyril Sheehan for M.

Div 4 Football: Naomh Eoin  3-19  Lissycasey  2-6 A very understrength Lissycasey side suffered a heavy defeat from Naomh Eoin in this division 4 tie played at Cross on Saturday evening.

Kevin Moran and Fergal Talty were the Lissycasey goalscorers while Sean Hayes kicked four points.Lissycasey;--Stephen McGovern; Brendan O'Connor, Martin Hill, Noel Doohan; Fergal Talty, Aaron Talty, Ronan McCarthy; Pat Healy, Noel Finnucane; Kieran Clancy, David McMahon, Kevin Hanrahan; Alan Pyne, Sean Hayes, Kevin Moran;Subs--Tom Collins for Healy; Healy for Pyne

Garry Cup: Lissycasey  1-12  Eire Og  1-11. Lissycasey followed on from their impressive showing against Doonbeg in the opening round of the senior football championship with a good and what could yet prove to be, a very important win over Eire Og in the Garry cup (division 2 league) at Lissycasey on Saturday evening.With relegation staring them in the face, Lissycasey went into this game knowing that another defeat would all but consign them to division three for next season. Adding interest to the tie was the fact that Lissycasey man Martin Daly is coaching the town outfit this season.Showing just one change from the side which took on champions Doonbeg a week earlier, they showed from the outset that they were determined to get a win here.That said, things didn't look good when they trailed by two points, 0-5 to 0-7, at half time. On the resumption Eire Og extended their advantage to three but Lissycasey fought back and when Martin Moran converted a penalty, the home side jumped in front.the lead was short lived, however, as Eire Og got back in front when they goaled from the penalty spot. Lissycasey's superior fitness proved decisive, however and , in the final minute, Francis Hayes kicked the winning point. Lissycasey now head to Ennistymon on Saturday for their final game in this campaign knowing that another victory will give them an excellent chance of surviving the drop.

Senior Football Championship Rd 1: Doonbeg  1-13  Lissycasey  3-5 Lissycasey may have gone into Saturday's opening round of the senior football championship against title holders Doonbeg as rank outsiders but they left Cooraclare most unlucky not to have taken maximum points.With just four of the 2007 championship winning team in the starting line up, they made their more fancied opponents fight all the way for victory.The Lissycasey starting team included five members of the 2009 minor A winning line up and there is little doubt after this performance but that the future is bright for the team. Lissycasey led by two points at half time having played against a strong wind. Goals from Danny Clohessy and Niall Kelly gave them a 2-3 to 0-7 lead at the break.In the second half, Doonbeg's greater experience proved decisive but Lissycasey battled to the end and were most unlucky not to take at least a point from the game.Doonbeg's inter county star David Tubridy was a vital cog in his side's win, contributing 1-8 of their total.According to Doonbeg manager Kieran O'Mahoney, "Lissycasey showed a lot more composure and leadership; than we did.  David Tubridy saved us really. We didn't panic at half time as we knew that Lissycasey still had to come out and win the game. Nigel Dillon's save halfway through the second half was the biggest turning point in the game".Lissycasey manager Barry Keating agreed that Dillon's save "was a turning point. The decisive time was ten minutes into the second half when Doonbeg kicked four or five points. We are  very proud of the lads. There was belief and we came here to win the game. We had a lot of young lads and they stood up. We had a great first half. It's a good foundation and we will build from here".The team line up was Joe Hayes; Cyril Sheehan, Gerry Moran, Martin O'Connor; Cathal Hill, Michael Melican, Martin Moran; Enda Finnucane, Danny Clohessy; Oisin Talty, Francis Hayes, Matt O'Shea; Paul Nagle, Niall Kelly, Derek McMahon;

Helped by a goal from Niall Kelly, Lissycasey led 1-6 to 0-3 at half time and went on to totally dominate the second half when they had a further goal from Oisin Talty.Point scorers on the day were Cathal Hil, Francis Hayes Niall Kelly, Dermot Nagle, Sean Hayes, Enda Finnucane and Fergal Talty.The Lissycasey line up was; Joe Hayes; Cyril Sheehan, Gerry Moran, Martin O'Connor; Martin Moran, Michael Melican, Cathal Hill; Enda
Finnucane, Matt O'Shea; Fergal Talty, Franc is Hayes, OisinTalty; Sean Hayes, Niall Kelly, Dermot Nagle;
Subs--Ronan McCarthy, Brendan O'Connor, Daniel Clohessy

No Game: The division 4 tie between Lissycasey and Doonbeg, scheduled for Sunday in Lissycasey, did not take place because of the non attendance of the appointed match official. It is expected that the game will be re-fixed

U-16 Semi-Final postponed: The eagerly awaited under 16 semi-final between Lissycasey and Eire Og was postponed from Monday evening. There was some annoyance at the fact that the news of the postponement only came on Saturday evening. The involvement of Mid Clare under 16 hurlers in the Munster semi-final in Mallow was the reason offered by Board officials for the cancellation of the tie.

Work in Progress: A lot of progress has been made with the erection of the new stand and the target of having the project complete by summer time is still on the cards.

Garry Cup:  O'Currys 1-8  Lissycasey 0-7:.Failure to avail of a number of good scoring opportunities in theopening half proved costly for Lissycasey in their latest outing in the Garry cup (division 2) and they went down to O'Currys at Doonaha on Friday evening.The game's only goal came ten minutes before half time and proved tobe a very important score, putting the home side four points clear. The second half was dominated by the respective defences and this is evident from the stats which show that each side managed just one score.This latest result leaves Lissycasey very much in danger of relegation to division 3 as they remain pointless after four games. Lissycasey; Joe Hayes; Gerry Moran, Michael Melican, Cyril Sheehan; Cathal Hill, David Considine, Martin O'Connor; Francis Hayes, Matt O'Shea; Oisin Talty, Dereck McMahon, Paul Nagle; Enda Finnucane,Niall Kelly, Dermot Nagle;Subs--Sean Hayes for D.

Garry & O'Gorman Cup: Cooraclare  0-10  Lissycasey  1-2. A disappointing second half performance led to defeat for Lissycasey in this Garry cup and O'Gorman cup tie at Lissycasey on Saturday. The clubs had agreed to 'double up' on both competitions so the defeat means a first loss for Lissycasey in this year's O'Gorman cup campaign while the club has yet to win a point in the Garry cup in which they have lost all three games to date.Lissycasey held a one point lead at the midway point with the score at 1-1 to 0-3, both Lissycasey scores coming from Dermot Nagle, the team's only scorer on the day.They failed to maintain this form in the second half when they could only manage one score. Lissycasey were guilty of a number of missed opportunities from play and from frees and these proved costly.

The juniors, competing in division 4, lost by the narrowest of margins to Meelick at the club's Frure pitch on Saturday. Helped by a goal from Martin Daly, they led 1-2 to 0-2 at half time but they struggled against the visitors throughout the second half.

October 2010:

U21 A Final: Ennistymon 2-11 Lissycasey 0-7 There was no joy for Lissycasey in the Clare under 21 A football final played as a curtain raiser to the senior final at Cusack Park on Sunday. A stronger and better balanced Ennistymon team deservingly captured the Clare crown. The absence of Niall Kelly, team captain and Sean Hayes, both suspended, from the Lissycasey team, was a huge blow. After a first half in which the teams were evenly matched, the North Clare side upped the tempo in the second period and deservingly came out on top to make up for the disappointment of losing last year's final to Cratloe whom they had dethroned in the semi-final two weeks earlier. Lissycasey could certainly have been closer had they availed of more of the chances which they created but they struggled to cope with the superior strength of their opponents who also showed a high level of fitness. Lissycasey struggled to win possession around midfield while their defence was also under pressure from a Sean McConigley inspired Ennistymon full forward line.Lissycasey started brightly and Matt O'Shea put them in front after just twenty seconds when he intercepted a pass and raced through to fist the ball over the bar. Eoin Fitzgerald followed with a point after a break by corner back Martin O'Connor and they should have had another score or two before Ennistymon opened their account in the ninth minute. For the next ten minutes Ennistymon piled on the pressure and points from Michael McDonagh and Sean McConigley were followed by a Joey Rouine goal. At half time, Lissycasey trailed by two points, 1-5 to 0-6 which appeared  to be a good position for Lissycasey as they would have the aid of the breeze in the second half but Ennistymon returned in much more determined mood and they quickly took a grip on the game. The winners dominated the second period although Lissycasey did have a couple of great goal opportunities which they failed to avail of. It was a disappointing result for the locals but given that all but two of the starting fifteen are eligible again next season, they have every teason to look forward with confidence Lissycasey;--Kevin Moran; Cyril Sheehan, Cathal Doohan, Martin O'Connor; Tom Collins, Noel Casey, Danny Clohessy; Matt O'Shea (0-1), Enda Finnucane (0-3); Eoghan Fitzgerald(0-1), Francis Hayes(0-2), Kevin Hanrahan; Michael O'Neill, Dermot Nagle, Sean Kelly Subs---John Cabey for Hanrahan (inj. 22 minutes); Eoin Enright for Fitzgerald (50 minutes)

Senior Relegation.  Lissycasey have retained Senior Status for 2011 by defeating O'Curry's in the replay of the Senior relegation which was played in Labasheeda on Saturday. Lissycasey  2-7  O'Curry's 0-8  Lissycasey will compete at senior level in 2011 as a result of this merited win over O'Currys in a senior championship relegation play off at Labasheeda on Saturday. Two goals in the opening quarter laid the foundations for this victory in a replay Lissycasey were a little fortunate to earn two weeks earlier. This time they were the better side over the hour and merited the victory which guarantees them their senior status while the men from the West Clare penninsula will drop down to intermediate level for the coming season. The winners of Saturday's game were dealt a huge blow in mid week the experienced Colin Lynch picked up a hamstring injury in training which ruled him out of the game. Also out due to injury was defender Martin O'Connor while Niall Kelly and missed the game due to suspension as he sent off in the drawn tie. A great run by midfielder Anthony Kelly led to the opening goal which was scored by wing back Gerard Murphy who was one of the winners' stars in this tie. Midfielder Kelly who also had a fine game, scored his team's second goal when he drilled the ball low to the net. These scores helped Lissycasey to lead by four points at half time when the score was 2-2 to 0-4, the winner's first half points coming from Martin Daly and Paul Nagle while Ger Quinlan, Tadhg Concannon and Michael Carmody were on target for the losers. On the resumption O'Currys tried to get back into contention but Lissycasey matched them score for score and the West Clare men were never able to get closer than four points to their opponents. As the game entered 'injury time' O'Currys full forward Mark Roche suffered a serious leg injury and he had to be assisted from the pitch and taken to hospital. Ger Murphy, Michael Melican, James and Anthony Kelly and Paudie Carmody worked tirelessly for the winners throughout. Scorers  Lissycasey;--Anthony Kelly and Ger Murphy (1-0) each; Martin Daly (0-3) Enda Finnucane, Danny Lynch, Paul Nagle, David Considine (0-1) each.  Lissycasey;--Joe Hayes; Michael Melican, Sean Hill Cathal Doohan; Cathal Hill, James Kelly, Ger Murphy; Anthony Kelly, Enda Finnucane; Paudie Carmody, Danny Lynch, Francis Hayes; Paul Nagle, Martin Daly, Derek McMahon; Subs---Oisin Talty for McMahon; David Considine for Nagle; Matt O'Shea for Carmody

September 2010

U21 A Semi-Final: Lissycasey 1.12 Miltown-St Josephs 2.05. A powerful opening 20 minutes that saw them open a nine-point lead laid the foundations for Lissycasey's merited win over Miltown in the County U21 Semi-Final which was played in Kilmihil last Saturday. The Winners were the better balanced side and fully deserved their victory in a game, that for the most part, was played in a sporting manner.A bit of needle crept into the game in the closing stages, resulting in referee Damien Fox sending off three players,two from Miltown and one from Lissycasey on straight red cards.The opening score of the game came in the sixth minute when Matt O'Shea struck for the winners goal, finishing off a good move that involved Eoin Fitzgerald and Francis Hayes. Points followed from Kevin Hanrahan, Enda Finucane, ( free ) and two each from Francis and Sean Hayes to put Lissycasey 1.06 to 0.00 with 22 minutes played. A further two minutes went by before Miltown opened their account when Joe Curtin converted a 13m free. When the half time whistle sounded, it was 1.07 to 0.02 in favour of Lissycasey. When play resumed the winners took up where they had left off and added early points from Sean Hayes & Dermot Nagle before Miltown had a brace from Joe Curtin. Another Nagle effort put the winners 9 points clear and this was the position as the game reached the three-quarter stage. A foul on Sean Malone led to a Miltown penalty which Curtin shot to the roof of the net. A Sean Malone point followed to reduce the margin to five with 12 minutes still to play but Lissycasey did not panicand while they were under great pressure for a while the defence held firm. The next score didn't come until the final minute of normal time when Dermot Nagle pointed for Lissycasey. Six minutes before that, referee Fox had red-carded Michael Malone from Miltown and Sean Hayes from Lissycasey following a melee involving about 10 players from each side. Four Minutes into added time, Miltown had a second goal. Lissycasey had the final score when Michael O'Neill kicked an excellent point two minutes later. Miltown were down to 13 men when Sean Malone was shown a red card a minute later and the game was in the eighth minute of added time when the referee finally brought proceedings to a close. This was a strong team performance from Lissycasey despite the absence of Captain Niall Kelly due to suspension. Matt O'Shea and Enda Finucane gave the side the upperhand at midfield on a day when Daniel Clohessy, Martin O'Connor, Noel Casey, Francis Hayes, Dermot Nagle and Sean Hayes stood out. Lissycasey will now face Ennistymon in the U21 A Final. Lissycasey. Kevin Moran. Cyril Sheehan, Cathal Doohan. Martin O'Connor.Tom Collins. Noel Casey. Daniel Clohessy, Matt O'Shea (1.00).

U14 Championship: Lissycasey 8.05 Eire Og 5.08. The future for Lissycasey football club is extremely ;bright. That'st he message that was sent out loud and clear from Cusack Park on Monday evening when the club's under 14 team were crowned county A champions. The win completed a great double for the club as they had earlier won the County feile title. Eire Og Ennis were their opponents on each occasion and certainly made life difficult for the locals. The win means that the Liam Kelly memorial cup will rest in his native Lissycasey for the coming year. The late Liam was a staunch clubman and served in many positions including secretary before his untimely death. His nephew Sean, presented the trophy to Conor Finnucane after Monday's final. The latest meeting of the sides was a cracking affair in which Lissycasey came from being thirteen points in arrears at the end of the opening quarter to win by six. The game had everything, great scores, outstanding performances, goalmouth incidents and some of the best goals that will be seen at any level in the county this season. Conor Finnucane gave Lissycasey the lead when he pointed after twelve seconds but then Eire Og took over to go 4-2 to 0-1 in front after fifteen minutes. Lissycasey were clearly rattled but, to their credit, they steadied and got on top for the final ten minutes of the half. Goals from Conor Finnucane and Michael O'Malley brought them back into contention and when the half time whistle sounded the margin was down to two goals, 4-3 to 2-3. Lissycasey made a number of changes at the interval which were to play a big part in their win. Goalkeeper Killian Normoyle switched to an outfield role with Ciaran Doohan taking over goalkeeping duties while Cathal Fitzgerald came into the attack. Normoyle and Doohan excelled after switching roles. O'Malley started the second as he had finished the first with an excellent goal to close the gap to three points. Three Eire Og points restored the winner's six point advantage before Finnucane struck twice in a minute for goals that tied up the game at 4-6 for Eire Og to 5-3 with sixteen minutes to play. Eire Og then had a brace of points but a great Lissycasey move ended with an excellent goal from Seamus Collins and the champions were in front for the first time since the opening minute. It was a short lived lead as EireOg were awarded a penalty two minutes later and, just as he had done in the opening half, Conor O'Halloran made no mistake. Still, Lissycasey refused to throw in the towel and team captain Finnucane struck again with four minutes to go for what was his fourth goal of the evening. Brian Cahill followed with a point before Niall Meere rounded off a great move involving Finnucane and Normoyle with the final goal of the evening, a minute from the end. Meere had the final say a minute later with a great point. This was an outstanding team performance and rounded off a truly memorably year for the players and mentors Lissycasey;--Killian Normoyle; Roy Griffin, Ryan Griffin, Niall McCarthy; Levi Howard, Ciaran Doohan, Ronan Grace; Conor Finnucane (4-1), Brian Cahill (0-1); Gary Stephens (0-1) Michael O'Malley (2-0), Seamus Collins (1-0); Darragh Hanrahan, Gary Hill (0-1) Niall Meere (1-1); SubsCathal Fitzgerald for Hanrahan; Oisin Hanrahan for Hill; Daire Meaney, Shane Keating, Conor Mullins, Liam Halpin, David Cahill, Eric Griffin, Niall Coote, David Cleary.

July 2010:

Garry Cup Div 2 Lge Semi-final: St Jospeh's 0.07 Lissycasey  0.06. Lining out without eight members of the squad, all ruled out through injury, there were fears ahead of this division 2 league Semi-final at Ballyea on Saturday that Lissycasey might suffer a heavy defeat. As things turned out they were decidely unlucky not to have won this game played in wet conditions which made ball handling and distribution very difficult.Team Captain Cathal Hill suffereed a hamstring injury in the previous week's O Gorman Cup Final. Anthony Kelly picked up a leg injury at training in midweek, Paul Nagle and Martin Daly were struggling to shake off leg mussle injurys while Martin O'Connor, Enda Finucane, Danny Clohessy and Cathal Doohan all picked up injuries in the under 21 s great victory over Cooraclare-Kilkee on Thursday evening. At the end of a hard fought first half Lissycasey led by a point but should have been more in front as they were guilty of some very poor shooting.they were down to 14 men shortly before half time when Barry Keating was dismissed but St Josephs had defenderGer Fannin sent off early in the second half.. Lissycasey went two points clear but the introduction of Colm Mullen, son of Brendan who shone for Lissycasey in the seventies,proved vital as he kicked three great points to tie up matters with less than ten minutes remaining. The Doorabarefield outfit kicked the winning point  in the second minute of injury time. Lissycasey: Joe Hayes. Michael Melican. Sean Hill. Niall Kelly. James Kelly. Barry Keating. Gerard Murphy. Colin Lynch. Matt O'Shea. Francis Hayes. Danny Lynch. Alan Nagle. Derek McMahon. Dermot Nagle. Oisin Talty. Subs: Paudie Carmody for McMAhon. MArtin Daly for D NAgle. 

U21: Lissycasey 0.10 Cooraclare/Kilkee 0.08   

Division 4 league: Lissycasey 1-6 Kilmurry-Ibrickane  0-9 Both sides can point to missed chances in this division 4 league semi-final which took place at Cooraclare last Thursday. Kilmurry-Ibrickane despite the fact that they were short some regulars, had the better of the early exchanges but they recorded a number of wides. They led 0-4 to 0-2 at half time. Early in the second half Gerry Moran scored the game's only goal when he converted a penalty and Lissycasey went on to open a three point lead. However, Kilmurry put in a strong finish to snatch a draw. Goalkeeper Kevin Moran, deputising for the injured Shane Normoyle, turned in a superb performance and brought off three superb saves. Gerry Moran was another to stand out on the evening, particularly after he moved to centre back midway through the first half. Lissycasey;--Kevin Moran; Paul Clancy, Gerry Moran Kieran Donnelly; Cyril Sheehan, Martin Hill, Fergal Talty; Noel Finnucane, Pat Healy; Cathal Talty, David McMahon, Tom Collins; Sean Collins, Paudie Carmody, Dermot Nagle; Subs:Kevin Hanrahan, David Clancy;

Junior A championships Ml. Cusacks  1-13  Lissycasey  2-4 An experienced Ml. Cusacks side proved too strong for Lissycasey in the opening round of the junior championship. The North Clare side, relegated from intermediate level last year, are clearly determined to get back up to the higher division. Paudioe Carmody and Fergal Talty were the Lissycasey goal scorers while the points came from David Considine and Sean Hayes.

O'Gorman cup final: Doonbeg  1-11  Lissycasey  0-5: Goals win games they say and so it proved at Doonbeg on Sunday evening. As a very evenly contested first half drew to a close, the sides were level at 0-2 each. Then an outfield error saw Lissycasey lose possession and Doonbeg launched a counter attack which yielded the game's only goal. Doonbeg dominated the second half to emerge worthy winners of the title. The loss of team captain Cathal Hill due to injury after five minutes proved a huge blow to Lissycasey hopes on an evening when they were also without Paul Nagle due to injury. Lissycasey;--Shane Normoyle;  Michael Melican, Sean Hill, Martin O'Connor; Cathal Hill, James Kelly, Alan Nagle; Anthony Kelly, Matt O'Shea; Danny Lynch, Colin Lynch, Ger Murphy; Enda Finnucane, Francis  Hayes, Derek McMahon; SubsGerry Moran, Paudie Carmody, Oisin Talty

Feile Peil na nOg. A great time at Feile. Lissycasey represented Clare at the Feile Peil na nOg finals in Derry last weekend and while they didn't manage to win a title, they performed impressively and represented the county well. Lissycasey opened their challenge in division 4 when they proved too strong for their hosts Buncranna, winning on a 2-10 to 0-1 scoreline and they followed this up with another comprehensive victory, this time over Glenullin from Derry, by 4-8 to 2-0 In their final group game they came up against De La Salle fromWaterford who were also unbeaten at this stage. At the end of a hard fought contest, the superior physical strength of the Waterford side saw them earn a 1-4 to 0-2 victory to qualify for the semi-final.  De La Salle went on to contest the final but they were beaten by Longford side, Northern Gaels. On Friday evening, Lissycasey participated in the Feile parade through Derry City. The panel returned home on Sunday eve.

Senior Championship:Ennistymon 2-7 Lissycasey  0-5 There was huge disappointment for all involved with Lissycasey football when the club's senior team went down to Ennistymon in this senior championship first round played at Cusack Park last week.Going into the game following impressive league wins over Cratloe , Wolfe Tones and their championship opponents and with an impressive O'Gorman cup success over Kilmurry-Ibrickane in the bag, hopes were high locally that another victory would follow.However, the favourites were rocked in the opening minutes andbefore the game was ten minutes old, Lissycasey found themselves ten points in arrears. From here on they were always struggling and whilematters did improve a little, it wasn't sufficient to prevent the side from losing.This result leaves Lissycasey with a huge task if they are to qualifyfor the knock out stages of the championship. they meet Cratloe in round two in early August. The Ennistymon full forward line caused huge problems for Lissycaseywith John McInerney the target at full forward while his flankers, Danny Rouine and McConigley were constantly on the move As the North Clare side dominated in most areas in the opening half, apart from those early scores from McConigley, they failed to add to his tally before the break and this is something that is sure to concern their backroom team ahead of round two. Lissycasey were struggling in most areas and this is reflected in the scoreline which showed that they could only manage a point in this half and this came from midfielder Colin Lynch after eighteen minutes.Lissycasey were fortunate not to concede a third goal eight minutes from half time when Joe Hayes pulled off a great save from John McInerneyFor the second half  Lissycasey introduced Oisin Talty and Martin Daly to their attack in place of Danny Clohessy and the injured AlanNagle. Ger Murphy switched from wing forward to wing back in place of Clohessy. Nagle, the only Lissycasey forward to threaten in the opening period, picked up a leg injury and his absence was a big loss to the team. Hopes of a Lissycasey rally were rocked in the early minutes of the second half when Brian Conway and Danny Rouine (free) increased the North Clare outfit's lead to nine points.At the other end of the field Lissycasey struggled to win possession in all areas of the attack Lissycasey captain Cathal Hill tried hard to rally his team and he kicked a fine point with six minutes remaining while Joe Hayes, Colin Lynch and Alan Nagle, until injured also got through some good work Lissycasey;--Joe Hayes; Michael Melican, Sean Hill, Martin O'Connor; James Kelly, Cathal Hill (capt) Danny Clohessy; Enda Finnucane, Colin Lynch; Ger Murphy, Danny Lynch, Alan Nagle; Paul Nagle, Anthony Kelly, Francis Hayes; Subs---Oisin Talty for A Nagle (inj) half time; Martin Daly for Clohessy, half time;  Derek McMahon for A. Kelly (51 minutes); Scorers---Martin Daly (0-2), frees; Colin Lynch, Paul Nagle, Cathal Hill (0-1) each;

Kilrush 1-7 Lissycasey  0-9. Lissycasey were short a number of regulars when they took on Kilrush in this final round league tie at Kilrush last week. the visitors led 0-6 to 0-3 at half time but Kilrush fought back strongly after the break. However, it was a defensive error which resulted in the game's only goal, a score which proved crucial in giving Kilrush victory by the narrowest of margins Lissycasey;--Joe Hayes; Michael Melican, Sean Hill, James Kelly; Cathal Hill, Cathal Doohan, Danny Clohessy; Matt O'Shea, Colin Lynch; Derek McMahon, Danny Lynch, Ger Murphy; Enda Finnucane, Francis Hayes, Oisin Talty,Subs--Dermot Nagle, David Considine .Despite that disappointing loss, Lissycasey are through to theleague semi-final having finished in third spot behind St. Josephs and Kilrush

May 2010: 

O'Gorman Cup: Lissycasey  0-14  Kilmurry-Ibrickane  0-12 (after extra time) Lissycasey dethroned the O'Gorman cup title holdersKilmurry-Ibrickane in a lively semi-final tie which required extra time at Cooraclare on Tuesday evening.The win gives Lissycasey a final date against Doonbeg and this will be a repeat of the final in the first year of the competition in 2006 when Lissycasey were victorious.Given that Lissycasey are facing into championship action on Saturday week, the team management has decided not to play the final on this Sunday evening. Instead they have suggested the weekend of June25/26 and 27 as an alternative. In Tuesday's semi-final, there was little between the sides at any stage and the lead changed hands on a number of ocasions in the game.Kilmurry had early points from Michael Hogan and Johnnie Daly before Lissycasey replied through Francis Hayes and Enda Finnucane. At half time Lissycasey led by the odd point in seven. It was score for score throughout the second half  as the sides were level at the end of normal time approached. In the fourth minute of injury time Kilmurry looked to have secured a place in the final when Noel Downes pointed but Lissycasey hit back and centre back Cathal Hill ensured that extra time would be needed when he levelled (0-9 each). The introduction of county minor Niall Hickey appeared to turn the tie in Kilmurry's favour as he pointed twice in the first period ofextra time to give them the lead but a superb effort from Lissycasey substitute Oisin Talty left just the minimum between the sides at the end of the first period (0-11 to 0-10). Points from Martin Daly and Gerry Moran saw Lissycasey go back in front before Johnnie Daly kicked a superb equaliser for the holders to leave the score at 0-12 each with five minutes still to play. Lissycasey dominated this period when  the experienced Colin Lynch and Martin Daly landed points to secure victory. A worrying note for Lissycasey is the fact that a number of injuries were sustained and there is concern for the fitness of Anthony Kelly ahead of next week's championship tie due to an ankle injury Lissycasey; Shane Normoyle; Michael Melican, Sean Hill, Martin O'Connor; James Kelly, Cathal Hill, Daniel Clohessy; Enda Finnucane(0-3) Colin Lynch (0-1) Ger Murphy (0-1), Danny Lynch, Alan Nagle;Derek McMahon, Anthony Kelly, Francis Hayes (0-4);Subs---Paul Nagle for McMahon; Oisin Talty (0-1) for Finnucane;Martin Daly (0-2) for A.

After the break, Ennistymon fought back and they cup the margin to the minimum when David Davenport converted a penalty. Lissycasey responded impressively and Gerard Murphy crashed the ball to the net to ensure victory for the home side who had Anthony Kelly back for his first game in the campaign. Following this win, Lissycasey are now third on the league table behind joint leaders Kilrush and St. Josephs. Lissycasey's final game in the league will be against Kilrush.

O Gorman Cup. Lissycasey 0.11 Miltown 0.08. Lissycasey secured a place in the Semi-Final on the O'Gorman Cup when they scored a merited win over Miltown at Kilmihil on Wednesday evening (19/5/10) Lissycasey, who were without the unavalable Danny Lynch, and Derek McMahon (Holidays), Joe Hayes(Inter County Senior Panelists who are not alowed to play in this competition) along with injured Paul Nagle and David Considine, led from the start and were 0.08 to 0.04 in from at half time. Martin Daly played his first game of the season for the winners and he managed a very valuable contribution, contributing 0.07 of the teams total, five of his scores coming from frees. Miltown tried hard to get back into contention after the break but the Lissycasey defence and particulaty the full back trio of Michael Melican, Sean Hill and Martin O'Connor excelled. There was a lot of pressure on Lissycasey in the second half as they were down to fourteen men for the last twenty minutes after Alan Nagle was unluck to pick up a second yellow card. Lissycasey, the first winners of this title,will now play the holders Kilmurry Ib who are chasing a fourth title in a row.
