According to Buff Egan, Tim O'Mahonys display at centre forward was of the highest calibre.

I was expecting the Barrs to win the first game so I was as surprised as they were with the intensity which Blackrock brought to it. They had obviously learned from Douglas' defeat and gave the Barrs no time to settle but tore into them right from the beginning. They dominated almost from start to finish, the classic example of not letting the other team hurl and were well-deserving of their nine point victory. At one stage they led by ten.

The Midleton/Newtownshandrum match was truly a game which ebbed and flowed. Sometimes Midleton were on top and sometimes Newtown were. There was little between the teams and at times the match appeared to be heading for a draw.

Newtown got an early goal which gave them a lead they kept for the rest of the first half and well into the second half. Then Midleton scorted a goal which changed things around and now it was they who were staying ahead, until Newtown's second goal brought them back into it again.

When Newtown had a man sent off it sparked them into life again and at times it seemed like they were the team with an extra man. They even went ahead by two points before Midleton shook themselves and upped the intensity again. In the very last puck of five minutes injury time, they scored the winning point from a free.

The players which most influenced the game were Tim O'Mahony for Newtown and Luke O'Farrell for Midleton.

The only way Midleton could handle Tim O'Mahony was to keep the ball away from him, which was easier said than done when most of the balls were aimed towards him. Midleton attempted to break those balls as much as possible because when he had the ball in his hand he was impossible to stop.

Luke O'Farrell was man of the match for Midleton. He was everywhere; scoring, setting up scores and in the back line clearing up. The work he did for the team was immense and he kept them in it when Newtown were on top. Were you watching, John Meyler?
