A BIT OF NOSTALGIA WHAT HAPPENED THIS TIME 10 YEARS AGO
2003

Wed 7th May 2003 Intermediate Hurling Championship Aghada 2-13 Youghal 2-10
Aghada looked the better side right through but could not put Youghal away.
Youghal playing with a gale force wind got a dream start when Michael Ó Laocha found the net after a mix up in the full backline from the throw in. But how our lads responded points from Vincent Morrissey (Three in all, two from dead balls) Dave Creedon and Trevor O’Keeffe before Youghal scored again. The Half forward line of Davie, Pearse and Trevor had the Youghal boys in all sorts of bother when they ran at them Pearse added a point before he found Davie at the edge of the square with a peach of a pass and Davie made no mistake .a minute later Pearse added an other minor and it looked like Aghada would run riot. Then came another mix up and again Michael Ó Laocha was on hand to find the net. This gave Youghal a lifeline and they took it adding five points before Trevor and Vincent levelled matters on the stroke of half time

Now it was Aghada’s turn the second half just opened when Vincent found the net Pearse added a point and then Brian Morrissey came into the game scoring a brace of points within as many minutes the last coming on the 43rd minute. Youghal were yet to score, but back they came hitting four points in a row before Trevor steadied the nerves with a point to finish off the game. Five of the Aghada forwards scored while Stephen O’Keeffe acquitted him well on his championship debut, as did Aidan Cotter who worked hard in the centre of the park. Rohan Dwane faired well at centre back as did Billy Hennessy and his uncle the evergreen Captain Kenneth O’Keeffe

Michael Lewis, Brendan Crowley , Pat Cashman , Colm O'Brien, Billy Hennessy, Rohan Dwane , Kenneth O'Keeffe (capt), Aidan Cotter , Ger Melvin, Trevor O'Keeffe ,(0-3), Davie Creedon (1-1), Pearse O’Neill (0-3), Stephen O'Keeffe, Brian Morrissey (0-2), Vincent Morrissey (1-4) Sub used Declan Devoy for Cotter 54th minute
