Playing Rules of Hurling

Attached is an Interpretation of Rule in relation to the Playing Rules of Hurling, approved by Central Council that will come into effect on Saturday 14 June 2014. Having considered the current implementation of our rules in respect of the taking of penalty pucks and free pucks from the 20m line, Coiste Bainisti was concerned that it was endangering the safety of our players and that urgent action was necessary.

Fingal go close in Nicky Rackard Cup Final

Eight Syls lads involved in Croke Park yesterday as Fingal lost 1-17 to 1-16 to a good looking Tyrone team who led from start to finish but were happy to hear the final whistle as Fingal came with a late charge. Hillary Murray Hession, Alan Morris, Andrew Richardson and Cillian O'Flynn started while Graham Morris came on and Kevin McLoughney, Enda and Dara Flaherty were unused subs. Well done to all.

Two good wins in hurling leagues - Junior and Inter

AHL3 St Sylvesters 1-12 Na Fianna 0-09 Fine game of hurling and a great win for us (3 wins and a draw so far in the league) especially when we had so many lads playing in Letterkenny yesterday for Fingal. Nockser got a nic diving volleyed goal, Martin Ormonde deadly from frees, Tony Dunne and Graham Morris particularly impressive in defense.

Fingal reach Nicky Rackard Final

Fingal 2-11 Donegal 1-12 A 'gang' of Syls hurlers contributed to a surprising but well deserved Nicky Rackard semi-final win in Letterkenny yesterday. Interesting that Fingal were 7-1 in the bookies (red faces there - of course they weren't to know that Hillary was back in goals for Fingal). This is the All-Ireland C Final and, interesting that our participation was strongly opposed b y the Dublin County Board (but not by the clubs who voted overwhelmingly in favour). June 7th, before the Strictly Dancing - will be a great day for Syls.

Minor hurlers draw at Mearnóg

MHL 2N Naomh Mearnóg 1-11 Clan na Mara 1-11 Tough game which we led from start, just caught in the end when again some brave defending earned us the draw. We started very well and raced in to an eight point to two lead, Collie deadly from frees, Christian, Eoin Mc, Eoin K and a very lively Andrew all contributing. Mearnóg came into the game with some good scores and we led by two at the break

Junior Hurlers win over Parnells

JHC -C Syls 0-14, Parnells 2-6 Solid defending even in the absence of the injured Ciaran Murray and Ronan Kennedy confined Parnells to only 8 scores. Hilary very assured in goal as usual and delivered long puckouts despite the strong wind. Ian, Des and Peter stood strong especially in the 2nd half facing into the wind.

Draw in SHC v Finbarrs

SHC B St Sylvesters 2-09 Nmh Fionnbarra 1-12 Could have won, could have lost, draw probably a fair result. We completely mis-fired in the first half into a strong blustery wind, four different free takers missing. A great catch and carry by Fionn setup Alan Kenny for a goal (see the pictures) and we were only trailed by six, 1-06 to 1.00 at the break.

Eoin K does the biz for Minor Hurlers

MHL 2N Clann na Mara 2-10 Craobh Ciaran 2-09 We took the lead just on full time with a brilliant Colm Boran free from his own half into the wind but then we had to withstand almost 10 minutes of overtime before claiming a very hard fought win over a fast and determined Craobh. Eoin Kennedy scored two second half goals and a point coming off the bench, Colm had a good day from frees , Simon stood strong in the middle but the whole team deserve great credit for a very courageous win.

The Geography of Hurling (1:1)

Why is hurling currently popular in a compact region centred on east Munster and south Leinster, and in isolated pockets in the Glens of Antrim and in the Ards peninsula of County Down? The answer lies in an exploration of the interplay between culture, politics and environment over a long period of time.

Junior Hurlers lose to Boden in C'ship

JHC C: Ballyboden 1-14 to Syls 1-11. Probably fair to say that Boden were that little bit sharper than us and it told in the end. Only 5 down at HT playing against the wind, we felt we were still in with a very good chance. However a string of poor wides just after the restart made it an uphill battle throughout the 2nd half. A late goal added a bit of hope but time ran out. Overall though a very decent performance and still all to play for in this group considering the number of players due back from injury.

Kenny leads hurlers to win in Championship

SHC B Whitehall Colmclle 0-14 St Sylvesters 2-10 Two brilliant runs by Alan Kenny leading to goals by Dave Casey and Niall Coughlan gave us a great start to the Senior Hurling Championship. The second goal, a powerful finish by Nockser, came with a minute to go to give us a one point lead, quickly followed by a point by Andrew and we withstood a couple of Whitehall attacks to win by one. WE led 1-04 to 0-03 at the break after playing with a strong breeze in our backs,

Minor Hurlers up and running at last

Clan na Mara 1-13 Clontarf 1-11. Our amalgamated Minor hurling team (Syls\Scoil) collected its first league points ( Div2) on Sunday morning against a very capable Clontarf team managed by Noel Wardick (son of Syls stalwart Jim Wardick !) It was a battling performance based on a sturdy defence with Thomas, Sean Foley & Phelim excelling but ably supported by Darragh McGrath, Sean Doolin and Andrew. Danny Colclough returned to goal keeping duties from injury and made several crucial saves

Hurlers tough it out against Barrog

St Sylvesters 1-11 Naomh Barrog 2-6 By Cilian Murphy AHL3 St Sylvesters produced a thoroughly efficient second half performance to see off a dogged Naomh Barrog side in this AHL3 clash at Broomfield yesterday afternoon. With both sides unbeaten going into this game, there was plenty at stake with the intensity of both teams’ performances illustrating this clearly from the off.

Minor hurlers pipped by Barróg

MHL D2N Naomh Barrog 4-5 vs 0-14 Clan na Mara Disappointing result having started well, points from Eoin Mc, Simon, Shane and Rory going 4 points up into the wind but then we stopped dead in our tracks and let Barróg take over for 3-03 to 0-06 at the break. We were much more competitive in the second half, Sean Dolan, Scrappy, in particular and the two Killians driving us forward.

Hard fought Junior Hurling win

***Hard fought win in poor conditions** 2nd March 2014 AHL6 - Civil service 1-5 v Syls 1-6 Islandbridge The score line tells the story of how poor the conditions were but certainly not the effort put in by both teams. Early on, Service coped better and moved into a 1-4 to no score lead after 20 mins before Syls began to exert some influence, Conor Dwyers move to midfield tipping the balance in Syls favour, it yielded 2 frees which Pat Hoyne duly converted with his usual aplomb ! HT score 1-4 to 0-2.

Inter Hurlers open with a draw at Vincents

AHL3 St Vincents 2-09 St Sylvesters 0-15 For the second week in a row we drew at PNU. A fair result I would say after a very good game. Vincents opened strongly ad threatened to blow us away leading 1-04 to 0-01 a couple of Ormonde frees steadied us, Alan, Kevin and Killian got to grips with the middle and Andrew up front and we were were three down at the break.

Minor hurlers disappointing opener

MHL 2 Clan na Mara 0-07 Whitehall Colmcille 1-11 First outing for the amalgamated Syls Scoil outfit but Whitehall were too strong in the important departments, got the goal straight after the break and held us out for the remainder. Defensively we were solid, Barry Cushen made a few important saves while Sean at fullback and Andrew and Fhelim in the half line won their battles. We could have scored more and been closer in the end but Whitehall, who have always hurled in Div1 looked to have more class.

Junior Hurlers lose Top4 Final

AHL6 Top4 Final Skerries Harps 4-10 St Sylvesters 1-8 Probably a fair reflection, we were mostly outclassed by a better balanced Harps team We did put up a great showing in the second half, the highlight a goal on the run by Eoin Kennedy and a few well worked points by Eoin McCarthy, Colm O'Connor and Jonny Conway. Maybe Colm will send a report. Well done lads on a very competitive season, hurling into December ain't bad.

Minor hurlers lose in semis to Lucan

MHC B SF Lucan Sarsfields 4-06 St Sylvesters 2-05 Three goals against us in the first half all but finished our Championship run. Philip hit the post at one end and Lucan drove through for a goal at the other. Two of our backs collided and let them in for another. We got a grip around the middle but we struggled with the size of the field and hit five long range efforts wide. At 3-05 to 0-04 at the break but came out fighting in the second half but, unfortunately the scores failed to come against a tough Lucan rearguard and when their classy full forward goaled again on the break we were in deep trouble.

Dual Player - alive and well

Apparently the day of the dual player is over, even at club level or so we are to believe! But see attached, 8 Clare senior hurlers winning county football and getting to Munster Club Final!
