This was always going to be an exciting fixture as Killyon/Longwood had beaten the Moores by 6 points in the League Final in Dunganny back in June. Last Thursday the 15th August saw the young U14 hurlers of Donaghmore/Ashbourne Gaa host the combined clubs of Killyon/Longwood in the RS Awards U14 Hurling Shield - Roinn B - Semi-Final.

Knock-Out Stage[edit]

Donaghmore Ashbourne won the Minor Championship in 2006, 2007 and 2008 and in 2010 completed a historic double winning the U-21A and U-21C Championships on the same day. There have been successes also at Hurling, Ladies Football and Camogie. A further Minor Championship win was achieved in 2013. In more recent times the club has had successes at underage, Junior and Intermediate levels.

In December 2007 the club moved from its previous home at The Wotton to new premises atKillegland West in Ashbourne. Donaghmore have won the Intermediate Championship in 1950, 1959 and 2007 and Junior Championshipin 1924, 1971. Donaghmore CLG was renamed Donaghmore/Ashbourne in 1996 to reflect the increased number of players and supporters from Ashbourne. There was football played in Ashbourne as far back as 1798 with a report by a Dublin Castle agent that a crowd of 300-400 people had gathered at Milltown, Ashbourne to watch the local men playing at football.

For 44 minutes Longwood put up a brave bid to secure their first win of the SFC campaign at Summerhill tonight. However two goals in as many minutes midway through the second-half settled Moynalvey and gave them a 2-16 to 1-6 win that ensures their safety and puts them in with a strong shout of securing a place in the knockout stages.

Halftime score Donaghmore Ashbourne 4-10 Killyon/Longwood 0-03. First blood 1-0 to 0-0 to the home team. The skilful and dependable full back line of Matthew Tuite and Fionnan Hogan were solid as usual and worked well with an in-form Conor Lawless in goal. Despite not having the services of a number of quality players who were on holidays and the injured Joedev Puchon the Donaghmore/Ashbourne players and mentors definitely learned from their earlier League Final defeat and eventually finished with a nineteen point victory. Michael O Sullivan kept the scoreboard ticking with a combination of points from play and frees and had 1-06 on the board by halftime. After two minutes of play an early ball in from centre back Aidan Mackey was plucked from the air by full forward Evan O Kane who had nothing but goal in mind as he turned and made no mistake with a finely placed strike. The visitors started well in the second half getting two early goals, however our strong half back line of Tom Ryan, Aidan Mackey and Dannan O Donnelly all put in huge shifts to turn the tide again, turning over a lot of ball and delivering quality passes up the wings. Donaghmore/ Ashbourne Gaa 7-17, Killyon/Kongwood 4-07. Throw in was 7pm and from the off, the Ashbourne hurlers were definitely up for the contest with strong performances from Jack Doran, Oisin Daly and Patrick Moran battling hard for everything in the middle of the field. Corner forward Niall O Sullivan won a lot of ball and gave great supply to the on-form Evan O Kane who had 3-01 to his name by the break. Conor Lawless, Matthew Tuite, Fionnan Hogan, Tom Ryan, Aidan Mackey(1-00), Dannan O Donnelly, Jack Doran(1-00), Oisin Daly, Patrick Moran, Niall Daly, Michael OSullivan(1-11), Jack Kennan(0-03), Evan O Kane(4-03) and Niall O Sullivan. Lawless made some fine saves and found his man with ever puck out. Best of luck lads. Half forwards Niall Daly, Michael OSullivan and Jack Kennan pushed up for the puck outs and with hard graft and skilfully working together they starved the Killyon/Longwood men of any possession resulting in score after score for the Ashbourne hurlers. The Ashbourne hurlers now play the combined clubs of Loughcrew Gaels/Gaeil Colmcille in the RS Awards U14 Hurling Shield - Roinn B Final this Thursday 22nd August at 7pm in Grangegodden.
