ENNIS TOURNAMENT

Saturday Record, 10-3-1888


The Ennis hurling tournament was continued last Sunday, but unfortunately not under the same favourable atmospheric conditions as the opening day. There was a slight drizzling fall of rain in the early stages of the play, gradually developing into a heavy downpour during the second game which cleared^the field of players and spectators alike. When this had somewhat cleared off, play was resumed but naturally the spirits of the contestants were considerably damped by the saturating they had received. Play was announced to begin, but the spirit of unpunctuality reigned supreme, and it was more than an hour after that time before a start was made.
The Dysart second team and the Connolly team were the first to enter the ground, and their match was a warmly contested one, resulting in a victory for the former, the score being one goal and three points to nil. A somewhat ugly incident occurred in the early part of the game when a Connolly man was jostled and knocked down, it was alleged, in a foul manner. A very excited scene followed, and it was feared the delinquent would suffer severely at the hands (or hurleys)
of the opposing team, the members of which at once thronged around, brandishing their 'camans' in a highly suggestive way. Matters eventually calmed down, and the match resumed. For Dysart, the best players were Keely, Neylon and O'Loghlin, and for Connolly—Griffin, Keane, Kear-ney and O'Neill. Mr. M. Ryan was referee.
