J1 Match Report by Jay Galvin - Waterpark 16 Tralee 10
To quote a famous Kerry sports commentator " it was a game of two
halves " and this definitely defines this thrilling encounter in
Ballinakill, Waterford. After a long four bus journey Tralee began their
second J1 League outing on the hind foot and definitely not up to the normal
level of awareness required for this tough encounter where last season Tralee
edged out Waterpark at O'Dowd Park.
Tralee First Team
travelled to Crosshaven Rugby Club on Sunday to play in the semi-finalof the Munster Junior Challenge Cup.Conditions at Myrtleville were dry and calm
– ideal conditions for a game of rugby.
Sunday Sept 19th. Tralee are through to the Semi-Final on the Munster Junior Clubs Challenge Cup and a place in the All Ireland Junior Cup after a hard fought victory against Cobh Pirates at O'Dowd Park.
night was Chris Dermody’s last night in Tralee and some of his team mates
joined him and Johanna in a farewell drink in Bailys Corner. Chris had worn the
No 10 jersey for Tralee J1s for the past 2 years and will be very hard to
replace. We would like to wish Chris and Johanna “bon voyage” as they head back
to New Zealand and hope that they retain the connection with our club.
Munster Junior League - Division 1 Round 10 - O’Dowd Park, Tralee - Sunday, 21stFebruary2010
Tralee27 Cashel 13
By Alec Kadou
Magnificent Tralee, outstanding to a man, produced a superb team performance to send last season’s Division 1 league champions, Cashel, packing, in an absorbing penultimate league encounter at O’Dowd Park on Sunday last. In the best rugby match seen in Tralee for many a long day, the huge home crowd were treated to a bonus point victory which keeps Tralee’s hopes of winning the league very much alive, going into their final game away to Skibbereen next month
A penalty try in the first half converted by Chris Dermody was Tralee's only score in this tough 7 - 3 win over Crosshaven. League rivals Richmond's bonus point win was enough to take them level with Tralee on points in the table but go top courtesy of the head-to-head win over Tralee earlier in the season. With two games left in the league it's all to play for.
Munster Junior Cup Round 3, O’Dowd Park, Tralee, Sunday,
31st January 2010
Tralee 15 Clonmel 20 By Alec Kadou
Oftentimes teams learn more in defeat than in victory, and so it should
prove for Tralee following their early exit
from this year’s Munster Junior Cup at O’Dowd Park on Sunday last. Garrett
Walsh, with his enforced, season-ending thumb injury, was sorely missed in both
defence, attack and especially with the dead ball. This, coupled with Tralee giving the visitors an early, near insurmountable
lead, proved to be a very sobering afternoon for the home side.
