There were twelve teams representing Galtee Rovers, Cahir, Cashel, Clerihan, Golden, Fethard, Knockavilla/Donaskeigh Kickhams, Skeenarinka and Rosegreen clubs. The blitz commenced with all the teams marching to Amhrán na bhFiann played by a bagpiper who led them around and gave the games great atmosphere and excitement. All teams played four games with the four highest scoring teams qualifying for the semi finals. All teams and supporters were treated to a cuppa and a few treats on completion of the four games, where the semi-finalists Golden vs Kickhams and Clerihan vs Rosegreen were announced. The semi finals were very competitive with Kickhams and Rosegreen reaching the final, with Kickhams already haven proven a little too strong for the home team in the earlier round. The final was again another very competitive game with both sides giving their all. The game was evenly balanced with Rosegreen taking their scores a little better, especially in the second half and were crowned the Charlie Power winners for 2017 to great scenes of joy for the home team and their supporters. The skills and performance of all teams were a credit to all the clubs involved and a special thanks to our coaches for organising a tremendously enjoyable event for all the players and supporters.
