KILMALEY V CLOONEY

May 1887

This match, which has been playing for the last three Sundays, should have resulted in favour of Kilmaley. However, the last Sunday, which will be long remembered, Jirought them the unexpected victory, feoth teams appeared timely on the field, each wearing its own distinctive colours. Both captains tossed for choice of sides, which turned in favour of Kilmaley.
The ball was thrown in by Mr. P. Halpin and the young hurlers bravely worked to win the victory. An hour and twenty minutes was the time given to decide the matter and up to the last eleven minutes the men of Clooney had gained all but when the Kilmaley men saw that the time was nearly up and that the victory due to them was nearly gone, they joined together with their usual rush and cour-
age, and strenuously made one goai and 3 points before the eleven minutes were up and therefore won the hard disputed honours—the Clooney men having scored only 4 points.
The Kilmaley men had yet to win the prize from the Corofin club and were only dressing when the Corofin men took the advantage of taking the field by leave of the Dysert committee. It was of course very wrong to ask a distressed club to hurl fresh men. However, the Kilmaley men seemed to be of good courage and manfully went again to gain another gallant success, making 3 points while the Corofin men made only one.
Full time was not played and there yet remains 47 minutes to be played on Sunday
