called and this was quite similar. It wasn only the players who were rusty after their winter break because ref James Owens made several strange calls. One major mistake from the Wexford official nearly cost Kilkenny the game and that of course was JJ Delaney dismissal with two yellow cards.

Cork made major surgery at half time; they withdrew their two big ineffective players Michael Cussens and Pa Cronin in favour of two fast, skilful players. I sure they were reminded at half time of two years ago what could happen if they didn show a bit of pride. I can only assume something like Converse All Star Leather Sneakers that happened as they came out a totally different team.
Kilkenny may have taken the two points against rivals Cork in dramatic style at Nowlan Park last Sunday but pride of place still has to go to O Gaels on reaching their first All Ireland club final. Their hard fought victory over Loughgiel Shamrocks of Antrim at Parnell Park last Saturday now offers them a tilt a club hurling highest honour.
Unfortunately I have never tasted such an occasion but I can only imagine what it must be like to get out on Croke Park on St Patrick Day with your club mates. I sure the O men would love to join Ballyhale Shamrocks, James Stephens, St Martin and Glenmore on that roll of honours list.
I know it early in the year and you wouldn expect fast, fluent hurling but I couldn get over the bunching that went Converse All Star Hi All White Colorway
However, times seem to be changing as this was more of a dog fight than a hurling match. Hard hitting and bunching was the order of the day.
They went back to their short passing game, while it may not be easy on the eye it did upset Kilkenny rhythm. Michael Fennelly was in hard luck not to find the Cork net early in the second half. If he had, then Cork revival mightn have ignited. The rebels chiselled away at Kilkenny lead, the first couple of scores didn alarm anyone but when they hit their fifth without reply the Kilkenny moans could be heard.
on especially in the first half. It was like the ball was thrown in and everyone was told to chase it. We used to play a game in school many moons ago Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi-ness - Sneaker High - White
The Waterford champions twice looked to be heading to their second All Ireland showdown in three years but were twice on the receiving end of sucker punches. The first came in injury time when former Galway star Mark Kerins drilled a 21 yard free high into the De la Salle net, fair play to the Waterford men and in particular Brian Phelan for Converse Chucks Sale Ebay
Last Saturday game was a dogged affair. The heavy pitch and the tight confines of Parnell Park saw to that. Three second half goals divided the sides at the final whistle, some may say it wasn a fair reflection of the northern side effort but the facts are that the Kilkenny champions ability to find the net ultimately won the day. Scores were hard to come by in the first half this was mainly due to some great defending from both sides. Loughgiel marquee player Liam Watson was superbly policed all afternoon by Eddie Kearns. Brian Hogan was having a solid game at fullback his switch out to his more a customary number six position was without a doubt the match winning move. The powerful Kilkenny defender totally dominated proceedings and his dominance soon led to scores. Niall McEvoy extended O lead early in the second half with two great scores one of which was a beauty from a line ball. The game was already leaning in O favour when Peter Dowling breached the Antrim champions defence for the first of O major scores. Loughgiel bounced back with three unanswered points before nippy corner forward Danny Loughnane got on the end of Brian Hogan long free to score O second goal. This score more or less finished the game but for good measure Alan Geoghegan sealed the issue with their third goal after good work from Mark Bergin and Niall McEvoy. It a great occasion for the O club to look forward to mind you the hype should be kept to a minimum. Managers Mick Nolan and Andy Comerford will probably demand a bit more from their forwards sector for that final.
That wrong decision by the ref to red card JJ couldn have came at a worst time as all the momentum was now with Cork. Moments later Paudie O run ended with a penalty claim. The ref quickly stretched out his arms in agreement. Pat Horgan coolly dispatched to level the game. Kilkenny new keeper David Hearity who had a solid game all afternoon probably won be best pleased with his attempt to keep it out, still comet the hour, comet the man as Richie Hogan twice came to Kilkenny rescue during the last couple of minutes to salvage victory. The two points were claimed, that will keep most Kilkenny fans happy but the way the players switched off will certainly worry the management team. A draw for Cork would almost have felt like victory. Kilkenny still have a lot of talent to come back into the equation but I not sure Cork have much more in their locker.
After watching Saturday epic battle Kilkenny fans were hoping for more of the same at Nowlan Park on Sunday afternoon. Traditionally down the years Kilkenny/Cork clashes have been full of skill and passion.
The second semi final between Clarinbridge (Galway ) and De la Salle (Waterford ) turned out to be a cracking contest with no end of drama.
squaring up the contest with a long range free. Extra time produced more fast and furious action. To be honest for the time of the year both sides produced fabulous hurling. De La Salle seemed to be on their way to victory once again only to be hit with another knockout blow when Eanna Murphy pounced for another goal. On this occasion there was no time for the Waterford champions to pick themselves up off the canvass. It was a cruel way to lose but it just goes to show that there is never such a thing as a lost cause. Clarinbridge are a small fast team with plenty of skill and they will be formidable opponent for O in the final.
Kilkenny like their opposition started slowly, both sides found scores hard to come by, as the first half wore on Kilkenny eventually found their range thanks mainly to man of the match Richie Hogan. The Danesfort man was a constant threat upfront; in fact without him Kilkenny simply wouldn have won. The Kilkenny defence as a unit were very impressive in the first half limiting Cork to just two points from frees. I don think I ever seen a Cork team go 35 minutes without scoring from play. The half time score line of 10 points to two didn bring a standing ovation like two years ago but boy was the home support content.
