Kinvara v Craughwell......trivia

posted 24 May 2012, 14:50 by Unknown user
For the third year in-a-row, Kinvara face Craughwell in the County Cup. The Craughwell side have been showing well in recent years, with a quarter-final appearance in 2010, followed up wth a semi-final appearance last year in 2011. There is no doubt they will be hunting for the big prize this year, especially as the championship seems more wide open and balanced.

How many times have we played at senior championship and name the years.?

2002: Group: Craughwell 2-16 beat Kinvara 3-11
2007: Group: Kinvara 2-9 beat Craughwell 0-10
2010: Prelim Quarter: Craughwell 0-11 beat Kinvara 0-8
2011: Group: Craughwell 2-18 beat Kinvara 2-12

1) Score stands Craughwell 3, Kinvara 1.
2) In the past 10 season, we have met 4 times. This now will be 5th in 11 seasons. Probably one of our best rivals in recent years, alongside Clarinbridge and Castlegar.
3) Any time we've beaten Craughwell in championship hurling, we have gone on to reach the county final. Fact!!!!!!!
4) We have also played them in a relegation battle match in 1986.

The Kinvara Team v Craughwell in 2002:
Colm Callanan, Ian Bermingham, Peter Huban, Jonathon Kavanagh, Shane Kavanagh, Gerry Mac, Colm Burke, Christy Helebert, Kieran Burke, Cathal Connolly, David Huban, Damien Huban, Gerry Huban, Anthony Byrne, Dara Smith.
Subs: Stevie Moylan for S. Kavanagh (injured) and Cathal Curtin for I. Bermingham.

Thats means 11 seasons later, 7 of the team that started in 2002 were in the starting fifteen in this years match v Ardrahan, plus Cathal Curtin came on. Nothing wrong with longevity in Kinvara!
