Lar Corbett retires from inter-county hurling

Tipp footballers lose dual star to senior hurlers and another could follow

TIPP DUAL STAR Seamus Kennedy has committed to the county's senior hurling panel for the 2016 campaign.
The Clonmel Commercials man has been in superb form for his club in their march to an AIB Munster final against Nemo Rangers on Sunday week, 29 November, but hurling is the player's first love.
A 2011 All-Ireland minor football medallist, Kennedy plays hurling for the St Mary's club in Clonmel and has been on the fringes of recent county senior panels.
But he will be handed the chance to impress by Tipp senior hurling boss Michael Ryan, who has also confirmed that the Premier County will not compete in next year's Waterford Crystal Cup.
Kennedy made his senior football championship debut against Waterford in May but the 22-year-old, who has played intercounty hurling in the minor and U21 grades, has decided to switch codes for now.
Kennedy's loss is a blow to incoming football supremo Liam Kearns and he could also lose the services of towering midfielder Steven O'Brien is mulling over an offer to link up with the hurlers.
From Ballina club, is a former dual All-Ireland minor medallist and starred on the Tipp U21 football team that won this year's Munster title before losing narrowly to Tyrone in the All-Ireland decider.
O'Brien was also a member of the Dublin City University panel that claimed Sigerson Cup glory in 2015.
If O'Brien decides to concentrate on the small ball, Kearns will have to plan for 2016 without one-fifth of the 2015 championship team - as Colin O'Riordan recently put pen to paper on a two-year international rookie contract with the Sydney Swans.
Steven O'Brien Steven O'Brien is considering an offer to link up with Tipperary's senior hurlers.
Ryan, meanwhile, has drafted 1995 All-Ireland U21 winning captain Brian Horgan into his backroom team.
Horgan, who worked as Kerry coach alongside newly-appointed Offaly manager Eamonn Kelly in 2014, will work with the Premier County as goalkeeping coach.
Horgan has been making quite a name for himself in coaching circles and he has confirmed that he will also continue in his role with Templederry Kenyons, where he is highly regarded.
This year, Horgan helped to guide Templederry to their first North senior hurling championship final, where they lost out to Kildangan.
Horgan, from Knockavilla, was also a selector alongside William Maher in 2012 when Tipp won the All-Ireland minor hurling crown.
Ryan is currently finalising his panel ahead of a fitness test pencilled in for 28 November.
The manager insisted that he did not speak to Tipp's retired stars about their plans, although he was aware of potential departures.
Conor O'Mahony, James Woodlock, Shane McGrath and Lar Corbett all pulled the curtain down on their Tipp careers in recent days.
Ryan told the Nenagh Guardian: "The less the guys heard from me, the better. They needed to make up their own minds in terms of their own motivation as they need to want to play for themselves, their family and their county, not just for me."

GAA to mark Bloody Sunday anniversary with poignant Croke Park tribute on Saturday night

The date of November 21, 1920 will be forever etched into the history of the GAA and that of Croke Park stadium as a result of the tragic events which saw British forces fire into the crowd attending a Dublin-Tipperary football challenge match.

There were 14 people killed, among them Tipperary player Michael Hogan.

This Saturday night the lights of Croke Park will be dimmed and 14 flames will be lit on Hill 16 to represent each of the lives lost on that fateful day and their names will be read out in a special ceremony. There will be no spectator access to Hill 16 for the game and the flames will remain lit for the rest of the evening.

Flag bearers will lead Uachtarán CLG Aogán Ó Fearghail and Árd Stiúrthóir Páraic Duffy out onto the Croke Park pitch and to the spot where Michael Hogan was shot and killed 95 years ago and where they will lay a laurel wreath - opposite Gate 41.

There will then follow a moment of silence.

GAA Árd Stiúrthóir Páraic Duffy said: "The events of Bloody Sunday on November 21, 1920 are as much a part of the history of Croke Park as any of the epic sporting contests which have taken place there since Gaelic games were first played on Jones' Road.

"The tragic loss of 14 lives on that fateful day, when almost 15,000 turned up to enjoy a football game between Dublin and Tipperary, was a harrowing moment for the Association, and while we have thankfully left those dark days behind us, it is only fitting that we honour the memory of those who were killed.

"The memory of Tipperary's Michael Hogan, who was 24 when he was killed, has lived on through the famous stand at Croke Park that bears his name. We are happy to play a part to ensure the names of the other 13 lives lost at Croke Park on Bloody Sunday - Jane Boyle (26), James Burke (44), Daniel Carroll (30), Michael Feery (40), Tom Hogan (19), James Matthews (48), Patrick O'Dowd (57), Jerome O'Leary (10), William Robinson (11), Tom Ryan (27), John William Scott (14), James Teehan (26) and Joe Traynor (21) are also honoured."

The match programme contains a specially commissioned piece on the events of 95 years ago by journalist Michael Foley, who has written an award winning book on Bloody Sunday at Croke Park called The Bloodied Field.

There is currently a display in the GAA museum at Croke Park where visitors can view Michael Hogan's Tipperary jersey, complete with bullet holes, and is currently on loan, as well as the match ball used.

Michael Hogan's jersey is on loan from the Tipperary County Museum. The match ball from the day is on loan from the Poitín Stil in Rathcoole. It's the first time that these items have been on display at the Croke Park museum

The GAA Museum is open daily Monday - Saturday 09.30-17.00 and on Sundays from 10.30-17.30. On Saturday 21st November, the GAA Museum will be open as normal until 14.00 and will then re-open at 15.00 with free admission to International Rules Series ticket-holders.

The action starts at Croke Park tomorrow night at 4.35pm with a Hurling/Shinty international test between Ireland and Scotland and features newly crowned GAA/GPA Hurler of the Year TJ Reid playing for Ireland.

It will be followed by the Bloody Sunday commemoration which takes place before the start of the EirGrid International Rules clash between Ireland and Australia at 7pm.

Preview: Close contest needed to keep International Rules momentum up

In some regards, the fact that Australia turned up and took it seriously (with an All-Australian selection) saved the hybrid game.
The previous renewal in 2013 in Ireland lay somewhere between a farce and a shambles with the Aussies, represented by an all indigenous side, going down by 101 points over two games.
Even Tadhg Kennelly, an assistant coach with the visitors, admitted that all involved were suitably "embarrassed" by the no-show - and so they should have been.
But now they've brought another elite panel, once again under the guidance of four-time Premiership-winning coach Alastair Clarkson, to these shores, via a training camp in New York, looking to keep their trophy.
At this time of year, as discussions arise about the game, it might be tempting to say that people either love it or hate it but that doesn't ring true.
The nature of the series means that it's hard to establish exactly how popular it is among the fans.
Those who dislike it, as with most things, seem to shout that little bit louder to ensure that everyone knows how they feel.
Those who do like it have, in fairness, had little to shout about recently: too much violence or tame tussles led to many unbalanced games down through the years.
But Croke Park was filled to capacity in 2006 and the average attendance since the 1990-1998 hiatus is almost 43,000.
Clarkson has again mooted the possibility of expanding the game into America, wanting to make it a three-team event in the future.
A more viable option is having one (of two) Tests in America, with Australia's consul-general in New York pushing for it to happen next year.
This year's Ireland captain, Bernard Brogan, admits he looks on with envy as the soccer and rugby players get to wear the shirt and stand for Amhrán na bhFiann.
"For us to be able to put on the green jerseys that they wear with such pride, you see the national anthems and the emotion, we'd just love to have that feeling and that opportunity," he said.
Similarly, the fiercely proud Australians only get to showcase their talents on a national stage so this event gives them representative honours.
In an age where the GAA is competing with rugby and soccer for young players, taking away another incentive to stick with Gaelic football makes little sense
That pressure is not easy to replicate in training so the AFL stars may have the upper hand here again.
The vast majority of the visitors' squad have played the game before and over 14 took part last year.
Ireland have nine current All Stars in their panel so first-time manager Joe Kernan, who led Armagh to All-Ireland glory in 2002, must reckon he has the best team possible, notwithstanding injuries to experienced players like Sean Cavanagh and Michael Murphy.
It will also be the first time since 2005 that Ireland have not picked any current AFL players on the panel.
Even though it's in better shape than usual, a competitive game is vital to keep the momentum going for the future.

Bernard Brogan (c) (Dublin), Lee Keegan (vc) (Mayo), Niall Morgan (gk) (Tyrone), Colm Begley (Laois), Gary Brennan (Clare), Eoin Cadogan (Cork), Mattie Donnelly (Tyrone), Eoin Doyle (Kildare), Peter Harte (Tyrone), Darren Hughes (Monaghan), Paul Kerrigan (Cork), Jack McCaffrey (Dublin), Ciaran McDonald (Tipperary), Phillip McMahon (Dublin), Conor McManus (Monaghan), Rory O'Carroll (Dublin), John O'Loughlin (Laois), Aidan O'Shea (Mayo), Michael Quinn (Longford), Donnchadh Walsh (Kerry), Diarmuid Connolly (Dublin), Paul Cribbin (Kildare), Paddy McBrearty (Donegal).
Coach: Joe Kernan (Armagh)
In the event of a draw, no extra time will be played. Australia, as holders, will retain the cup.

Gritty Irish hang against Australia on as goals make the difference
Ireland 56 Australia 52

For the buoyancy and future welfare of the game the result, and manner in which it was achieved, will have done no harm. Nor will the healthy attendance of over 38,000. Ireland led by 20 points at half time, dominating the first two quarters, but they were struggling to make an impact for the remainder, living off scraps. A Bernard Brogan behind closed the scoring just before the hooter as Ireland found one final burst of energy.

Conor McManus, Ireland's top scorer with 17 points, had a goal chance midway through the final quarter, his shot flashing off the crossbar for an over which brought some relief. But concern soon soared when Australia delivered a cross ball which ended with Eddie Betts getting up over Niall Morgan and punching to the net for Australia's only goal with six minutes left. Robbie Gray's over had the increasingly brittle Ireland lead down to three.

Ireland looked doomed but finished in the visitors' half, finding something in the tank, and deserve credit for that. Afterwards, Brogan was declared their man of the match, his 13 points including four overs. But Aidan O'Shea also had a major hand in the victory, being hugely influential, and scoring two goals. In last year's defeat in Perth, Ireland were undone by a poor start. They put that to rights this time, as Joe Kernan had demanded, and led 21-13 after the first quarter, inspired by an early goal by O'Shea, who netted after four minutes.
Australia had chances but some poor finishing cost them. They hit back briefly early in the second quarter, two overs cutting the Ireland lead to four points, before a second goal from O'Shea relieved the pressure and Ireland again began to dominate play. The Mayo man followed up on a Brogan goal effort that was saved and found the net with an excellent left-footed drive.
Brogan stretched his points total with successive overs, the last of those could have been a goal with a player free inside, but they had their third goal when McManus scored a penalty after a foul on Patrick McBrearty.
Australia rarely looked like scoring a goal and sometimes eschewed good openings when electing for the over instead. Morgan almost gifted them a chance nearing half time when he fumbled and Colm Begley saved his blushes.
In spite of Ireland's strong half-time lead of 20 points, it was expected the Aussies would launch a comeback in the final half, as they have done in the past. By the end of the third quarter they had shaved the Irish lead to down to 11 points, 50-39. Rick Riewoldt, notably, caused Ireland's last line of defence a lot of problems under the dropping ball.
That pattern continued in the final quarter as play deteriorated, Ireland's especially, but with ten minutes left they still held their 11-point lead. Betts' goal shook Ireland and at that point their lead looked decidedly fragile. It made the victory all the more enjoyable and they will return to Australia next year to defend their title.
The match was preceded by a short but moving ceremony to mark the 14 dead of Bloody Sunday 95 years ago, 14 flames alight in their memory on a deserted Hill 16.

Scorers - Ireland: C McManus 17 pts (1 goal-3 overs-2 behinds); A O'Shea 15 (2-1-0); B Brogan 13 pts (0-4-1); D Connolly 4 (0-1-1); L Keegan 3 (0-1-0); D Hughes 3 (0-1-0); P Kerrigan 1 (0-0-1).

Ireland finish strongly to claim hurling/shinty win. International: Ireland 16 (2-1-8) ​Scotland 14 (2-4-0)

Shane Nolan and Eoin Price struck the decisive late points at Croke Park as Ireland secured victory in the hurling/shinty international test, effectively ensuring the overall series ended in stalemate.
This year's two tests were played as stand alone fixtures so victory for Jeffrey Lynskey's side resulted in a 1-1 overall result.
Ireland left it late to seal the win with the teams level for 16 minutes of the second-half at 14 points apiece until Kerry's Nolan and Westmeath man Price pointed in quick succession at the death.
Ireland lost the first test to Scotland by 10 points last month in Inverness, their heaviest defeat in the series since 2007, and trailed for the first 20 minutes or so here.
Fraser Heath's seventh minute goal for Scotland, after Steven MacDonald's free was only partially cleared, put the visitors 5-1 up.
But a succession of excellent scores from Keenan drew Ireland level at 7-7 by the 21st minute.
Tipperary's Patrick Maher moved the hosts ahead for the first time in the 28th minute with a fine goal after a strong run and shortened hurl finish from close range.
Scotland's second goal, four minutes later, from Kevin Bartlett, ensured they were just one down at half-time, 13-12.
The match was back level again in the 53rd minute following Bartlett's third free of the game, taking his tally to nine points and leaving the teams locked on 14 apiece.
Scotland manager Ronald Ross described Scotland's performance in the first-half of the Inverness tie as their best ever.
The quality wasn't nearly as high this time with just two scores registered in total in the first 39 minutes of the second-half, one from a free.
So they remained deadlocked at 14-14 until Nolan found some spaced to volley over a crucial point and Price split the posts shortly after to leave two in it.

Ireland: E Reilly; B Murphy, J Toher; M Burke, M Whelan, D Healy; D McNicholas, D McInerney, N McAuley; Z Keenan, P Maher, E Price; TJ Reid, S Nolan.
Scorers: Z Keenan 8 (1-1-3), P Maher 3 (1-0-0), E Price 2 (0-0-2), N McAuley 1 (0-0-1), D McNicholas 1 (0-0-1), S Nolan 1 (0-0-1)
Subs used: P Kelly, P Divilly, B Deay.

Scotland: S MacKintosh; F Macrae, C Millar; S MacDonald, R Kennedy, L Bain; D Cameron, J Barr, C Cormack; R MacDonald; K Bartlett, G MacKintosh, G Irvine; F Heath.
Scorers: K Bartlett 9 (1-3-0), F Heath 3 (1-0-0), S McDonald 2 (0-1-0)
