‘Shamrock’s shocked in Sydney

Sunday’s NSW League semi finals produced a shock of shocks when hurling table toppers and champions Sydney Shamrock’s got dumped out of this year’s competition.

Central Coast put an end to the run of the 2010 double League and Championship winners and they did it with room to spare as six points separated the sides at the final whistle.
In the other semi final last year’s double runners up, Michael Cusack’s booked their place in the hurling league final when having a comfortable 9 point win over Craobh Padraig.

Meanwhile, in the mens football league semi finals, double league and championship winners from last year, Michael Cusacks in a repeat of the 2011 championship final, enjoyed an 8 point victory over Clan na Gael. In the other semi final Cormac McAnallens had an easy win over Young Irelands.

In ladies football, 2011 double champions Central Coast continued their domination with a comprehensive victory over ‘McAnallens while it was a much closer affair in the other semi final with Michael Cusack’s edging out last year’s runners-up, Clan na Gael.

In the first Camogie semi final, in form league leaders, Michael Cusacks had too much for ‘McAnallens while in the other semi final, the top two teams from last year, Central Coast and ‘Clan battled it out once more.
‘Clan had got the better of their rivals in the league final last year but succumbed to ‘Coast later in the championship final, and on Sunday in another great battle, it was ‘Coast again who had the edge with a 7 point victory.

Bad weather continues to plague New South Wales GAA fixtures, as unlike the prior weekend when the last round of the league was cancelled due to poor weather, the games went ahead on Sunday despite further rainy conditions.
More rain is being forecasted for this week in Sydney and GAA officials are hoping the weather clears for the league finals at Mono Park on Sunday.
