Wednesday February 2, 2011: CUFL Premier Division Semi Final,
IT Carlow V Cork IT, kick off 2pm sharp
The Cahir Park AFC Veterans Centenary Quadrangular Tournament took place on Saturday 2nd October, 2010 featuring teams from Cahir, England (Springfield from Chelmsford), Kerry (Tralee Dynamos) and Dublin (Peamount United). The home team beat the lads from England 4-2 in the Anthony Cunningham Memorial Cup, the first game of the afternoon, with two goals from Phil McGrath. Gerry Fitzgerald and Franny Harpur's side had a say with a brace scored but it was not enough with the hosts adding two more through Norman O'Brien and Kenny Cunningham. Cahir Park then entertained Dublin side Peamount United in the Quadrangular Centenary Final after they had overcome Tralee Dynamos, with Edgar McGrath, by a scoreline of 1-0. Ger Quinn's Dublin representatives were crowned the champions of the day beating the Park 3-1 in the final. Tom Kelly, the Park's oldest surviving player, presented the Cup after an exciting final in which Peamount were first to score. After a penalty miss by Phil McGrath, United redoubled efforts and were two ahead before the break. When a third was added it was all over as a contest, Norman O'Brien's strike from 20yds serving as no more than a consolation for the home support.

Played in front of an appreciative audience on a sunny afternoon, a great sporting occasion took place at the Park on Saturday last with the arrival of the Irish paralympic team, ranked fifth in the world. True to form, there followed a competitive game at a high tempo with lots of chances for both sides in a gripping encounter.
With youth once again given it's chance in the senior side, there were impressive performances from Pa Fitzgerald at left back, from Sean Kiernan in midfield and from Eamon Wootten and Mateusz Marciniak up front whilst goalkeeper Darren Sweeney had to be on his toes throughout the afternoon.
With the paralympians first to show intent with a cracker coming back off the crossbar, Fitzgerald found himself free on the right and after a fine solo run, crossed for Keith McGuire to shoot just wide. Efforts from James Darcy, Anthony Ward and Craig Condon also proved fruitless in the seven a side encounter.
After the interval, a fine save from point blank range in a one on one situation saw Sweeney keep the home team in it as the visitors turned up the gas. Making good use of a crowded subs bench, the recalled Mark Costigan was to provide the finish that would be the difference between the sides when a brilliant three-man break involving Darcy, Shane O'Regan and Costigan was finished cleverly. Captain Pakie O'Dwyer's troops turned on the style for the final few minutes as the FAI-trained team began to rue some poor finishing on the day and with Wootten foiled after a fine run from midfield and Kiernan blasting wide just on referee Gerry Ward's full -time whistle, both teams came away from an encounter providing a worthwhile run-out.
