A tough encounter for Lyre this weekend with an away game to Cullen, so Lyre had to be up for it.
As the ball was thrown in Lyre made a great play which they were very unlucky not to get an early goal. Cullen then responded with a point and goal in the first 3 minutes. From then on Lyre struggled and were chasing the game. It took 6 minutes for Lyre to get their opening score and it came from Brian O'Driscoll and soon after Timmie Murphy added to that with a free. Cullen added another 4 points one of which was a free. Lyre's next score came from Martin Kearney in the 22nd minute. Cullen added one more point before the break.
Halftime score: Lyre 0-03; Cullen 1-06
Lyre struck first with a superb 45' from Sean Murphy. A lot of mistakes from Lyre ended up with Cullen scoring another 3 points. Brian O'Driscoll added another point from a free in the 44th minute. Three more points from Cullen meant the game was theirs to lose. Lyre finished strong with frees from Denis Roche, Tim Murphy and a point from play coming from Martin Kearney.
Fulltime score: Lyre 0-08; Cullen 1-12
