Senior Football Championship

Portarlington prepare to take on Arles Killeen in the SFC at O'Moore Park

Our senior team came up short against a physically strong Ballylinan side in the second of the semi-final double header in O’Moore Park Sunday, going down on a score of 3-8 to 4-10. Played in blustery conditions Port took time to settle while Ballylinan made hay in the opening quarter with the Kildare border side 9 points up 2-4 to 0-1 after 13 minutes.

The second quarter belonged to Port when our forwards sprang into action to scored 3-5 between the 13 minute and half time with goals from Colm and David (2) Murphy to leave the core 3-5 to 2-5 at halftime.

The second half started at a fast pace with both teams throwing caution to the wind in search of a victory unfortunately luck went Ballylinans way with two quick fire goals in the 38th minute. From there on, although not for lack of effort Port found it difficult to make the necessary break through against a resolute Ballylinan defence.


Scorers: David Murphy 2-4, Colm Murphy 1-3 (0-2 frees), Kevin McGrath 0-1.

Team: Brian McAuley; Robert Pigott, Patrick O’Sullivan, Diarmuid Bennett; Hayden Weldon, Graham Weldon, Eoin Kennedy; Jonathon Fullam, Cathal Ryan; Jason Moore, Colm Murphy, Kevin McGrath; Jake Foster, David Murphy, Evan Lyons.

The Club wish to extend their thanks to the team, mentors and all those who help with team preparation, for the tremendous effort put in this year. Considerable progress has been made and with Division 1A football to look forward to, we can regroup and advance further in 2018.

Senior Football Championship Semi – Final Preview

Port enter the penultimate stage of the championship for the first since 2001 against a resurgent Ballylinan team this coming Sunday at O’Moore Park, Throw in 3:30pm.

Both sides will be familiar with each other, this being their fourth meeting in all competitions in 2017. These games have been tight affairs with little to choose between the teams.


Port came out on top in both of the league stage ACFL 1B games, winning 2-13 to 0-14 in McCann Park and coming away from Ballylinan with a 0-12 to 1-08 win. In the League final when both teams fielded without key attacking players, an injury time brace from Cathal Dunne ensured victory for the Kildare Border side who claimed the silverware 1-08 to 1-07 after Port had looked  on course for the win following a late Stephen Lyons penalty.

Championship form

Port overcame Arles – Killeen in the first round after a replay and extra time, this was  followed by a comprehensive victory of 2-23 to 0-10 over Ballyroan-Abbey. Drawn again against Killeen in the quarter finals, Port came through to win 3-10 to 0-13.

Ballylinan met Mountmellick in the first round winning 1-13 to 1-07. In the second round they beat fancied local rivals St. Josephs 3-13 to 2-7. In the quarter final they accounted for Killeshin 3-08 to 1-05.

Both teams have a blend of youth and experience, the emergence of Cathal Dunne brings extra potency to a full forward line that will surely include Laois senior Gary Walsh. Ballylinans defence anchored by veterans Richie Ryan and Dermot Leonard have been miserly, conceding on average a meagre 8 scores per game so far in the championship. With the Farrell’s, Ciaran, Jamie, and Alan bringing energy around the middle third.

Port have improved with every game in the championship so far, with young players Patrick O’Sullivan and Robbie Piggott prominent in each game. The return of Kevin McGrath has strengthened the forward line where brothers David and Colm Murphy provide the attacking fulcrum. Around the centre Johnathon Fullam and Jason Moore give Port pace and power both in attack and defence, with strong options off the bench where Jordan Fitzpatrick has had an impact when introduced.

The sides League and Championship form point to a tight encounter, where 1 or 2 scores may separate the sides come the final whistle. If the League final is any indicator, Referee Eddie Kinsella will allow a free flowing encounter and given both sides attacking form goals are expected.

Best of luck to the Port team and mentors from all at the Club.
