Intercounty victory for two CCS students19 May 2011
Two Cashel Community School students were on the victorious Tipperary Minor football team which defeated the might of Kerry in the Munster Semi Final last night in Semple Stadium, Thurles. Gearoid Slattery played in goal and Dylan Fitzell lined out at centre back, both members of the Cashel King Cormacs Club.
Tipp trailed Kerry by 3-6 to 5 points at half time and for the first 15 minutes of the second half, neither team got a further score. However, Tipp dug deep and in the final 15 minutes of the game ran the Kerry defense ragged to defeat them by the closest of margins…a single point. The final scoreboard reading Kerry 3-8, Tipperary 2-12. Jubilant scenes followed at the final whistle.
Best of luck to Gearoid and Dylan in the Munster Final, the school is very proud of your success.
