The presentation of prizes took place in front of a large attendance on Saturday night in Kennedy’s Bar. The society would like to thank Tom Fitzgerald and Kennedy’s Bar for their generous sponsorship and valuable support to both the Golf Society and Killeagh GAA Club.

Under 12s win a thriller
Rebel Óg Eastern A Hurling League Final Killeagh-Ita’s 7-10, Cloughduv 3-15 (After Extra Time)
Killeagh-Ita’s Under 12 hurlers captured the third trophy (following on the success of the Under 13s and Under 16s) of an increasingly fruitful year of underage activity by beating Cloughduv in an enthralling league final played in Ballinora on Saturday last. This was a game like Tipp v Kilkenny with scores aplenty on both sides, and the result in doubt right up to the end of normal time and the very final whistle. Cloughduv got the opening score with a point after two minutes and with the wind they dominated the first twenty five minutes after which they led by 1-8 to 1-5, with Paul Kent getting the final touch in a goalmouth scramble for our goal. Cloughduv probably could have been further ahead as they had double our tally of five wides in this first half. Ciaran O’Rourke then equalised with the first of his three goals only for it to be cancelled out almost immediately with a green flag at the other end. At the turnover Cloughduv held the advantage by 2-9 to 2-6.

Amazingly, the first 9 minutes of the second half were scoreless until Cloughduv stretched their lead to four, but then Ciaran Leahy and Ciaran O’Rourke both goaled to give us the lead for the first time on a 4-6 (18) to 2-11 (17) score-line. Back came Cloughduv with two frees to creep into a lead again with just ten minutes remaining. A Colm Treacy point levelled it and a Ben O’Connor goal gave us the lead with five remaining but with one final push Cloughduv got their third goal to level it again, 5-7 to 3-13. So extra time was required, and at this stage, in spite of substitutions from both sides, legs were tiring and scores were going to be vital. Cloughduv scored two points to our one in the first ten-minute period but we had the wind for the final ten and it proved decisive. Ben levelled it with an excellent score after great defensive work from star defender Jamie Fogarty, and then Ciaran O’Rourke’s third goal put us in the driving seat. It was still all to play for and our defence had to withstand an onslaught but in the final minute Ben added another point and goal to put a false complexion on the final score, with a seven-point winning margin. An scór deiridh: Killeagh-Ita’s 7-10, Cloughduv 3-15. Board Vice-Chairman Willie Casey presented the league trophy to captain and leader Robbie Treacy as the large Killeagh-Ita’s support cheered and the cavalcade to Main Street, Killeagh began. John Coleman’s ice-creams tasted twice as nice given the fine weather and the sweet victory! Well done to all involved – the players on the panel and the mentors Donie Treacy, Johnny Irwin, Mikey Fitzgerald and Mike Landers. Thanks to everyone who has supported this team all year, here’s to Premier 2 Under 13 in 2015!

Under 14s lose out to Courcey Rovers
Rebel Óg Eastern A Hurling League Final Courcey Rovers 1-18, Killeagh-Ita’s 1-6
Our Under 14 hurlers battled bravely against Eastern A Championship winners Courcey Rovers but were well beaten eventually in an entertaining League Final played in Nemo Rangers on Wednesday evening last. We started very well and led by 1-4 to 0-6 after 17 minutes, with Ryan McCarthy’s long shot going all the way to the net, and Olan Borderick, Padraig Leahy (2) and Ben O’Connor scoring excellent points. Our backs were doing well with Kieran Daly, Dylan Hogan and Barry Motherway clearing great ball. However, Courceys now started to dominate in the middle third, and we also conceded some silly frees, which left us 0-11 to 1-5 behind at half time. Unfortunately we returned to some bad habits in the second half with poor wides, passes going astray and dropped balls all contributing to our failure to close the gap, and a Courceys goal after 50 minutes put the game beyond us. Our boys battled all the way to the end but had to give best to a talented Courceys side. Well done boys on reaching the final, some time you will get the rewards!
Team: Robbie Treacy, Darragh Geary, Dylan Hogan, Kieran Daly, Barry Motherway, Ryan McCarthy (1-0), Richie Landers, Liam McCarthy, Adrian Galvin, Richie Long (0-1), Ben O’Connor (0-1), David Kelly, Olin Hennessy, Padraig Leahy (0-2), Olan Broderick (0-2). Subs used: Robert Sinclair, Danny Cunningham, Dara Motherway, James Kent, Andrew Foley.

SUPER-VALU SUPER-KIT!
On Tuesday last Killeagh GAA was one of six East Cork GAA Clubs presented with €1000 worth of playing equipment by Hurley’s Super-Valu in Midleton. The full pack consists of 20 large gear bags, 2 dozen water bottles, 2 sets of training bibs, 10 footballs, 2 football bags and a dozen sliotars. Many thanks to Super-Valu Midleton and its manager Tommy Grimes for this wonderful gesture, the equipment will come to good use in 2014 and beyond in Killeagh GAA.

Under 16 footballers fall at first hurdle
Rebel Óg Eastern A Football Championship Killeagh-Ita’s 0-6, St. Colman’s 3-13
Our Under 16 footballers failed to overcome St. Colman’s in their Eastern A Football Championship first round match played at home last Friday evening. We got off to a good start and led by 0-3 to 0-0 after 12 minutes with points from cousins Aaron and Sean Walsh, but then a goal from a penalty gave St. Colman’s a lifeline and an impetus and they took over from here to the finish. We contested well but gave away possession too easily and paid the price. It was 2-6 to 0-4 at half time and although Jamie Landers got the opening score of the second half to reduce the margin, St. Colman’s dominated the rest of the game, scoring 1-7 without reply. Our boys tried hard to score a goal to get back in the game, but the St. Colman’s full back line and goalkeeper were excellent in limiting our chances. So good luck to our opponents who were deserving winners as they prepare to play Valley Rovers in the next round. Thanks to our selection committee of Adrian Budds, John Irwin, Liam Kelly and Denis O’Rourke for their efforts with this team throughout the year.
Team: Adrian Galvin, Luke Fogarty, Jack O’Rourke, Shane Kearney, Fergal Smiddy, Kevin Murphy, Christy Coughlan, Keane Budds, Cathal Deane, Eoin Fitzgibbon, David Ogbebor, Sean Walsh, Fionn McDonnell, Jamie Landers, Aaron Walsh.

U13s win a thriller in extra time
Rebel Óg Eastern A Hurling League Final Killeagh-Ita’s 7-17, Aghabullogue 8-6
Unbelievable drama and excitement was the order of the day in Nemo Rangers GAA Grounds on Friday evening last as our Under 13 hurlers captured the first ever Rebel Óg Eastern trophy for the club by winning the Eastern A League in dramatic fashion. This was a contest of high quality with excellence on display from both teams – goal scoring, point-taking, free-taking, hooking, blocking, tackling and catching – which was a joy to watch. What a pity there had to be a loser, but thankfully, for our boys, this time we came out on top. The game started with an Aghabullogue point but Ryan McCarthy got us off the mark when a long-distance free went all the way to the net. Scores were hard to come by in the first quarter, at the end of which we led by 1-1 to 0-2, Ciaran Leahy getting the first of his three points. Our boys dominated the second quarter and added six more points from play. Unfortunately we also conceded three frees which were expertly converted by Aghabullogue’s brilliant midfielder, and we also shot eight wides in that first half (Aghabullogue had 3). So even though we led by 1-7 to 0-5 at half-time, it looked like it might not be enough as we had to turn around to play against the strong wind.
The second half was a goal-fest, but more for our opponents than us. David Kelly’s beautiful point, a free from Ryan and a goal from Ben O’Connor gave us a 2-9 to 0-6 advantage after 40 minutes, but Aghabullogue thundered back with two quick goals to reduce the margin to three. 1-3 without reply (Ben’s second goal, two points from Olan and another from Ciaran) in the next eight minutes restored our nine-point advantage, but when it looked like we had one hand on the trophy, as can happen in hurling, Aghabullogue blitzed us with 3 goals in the last seven minutes. Both sides had chances to win it, but at the end of the hour, it was all square, 3-12 to 5-6. A quick turn-around was ordered by the referee with light fading, and thankfully our fitness and accuracy helped us to get a firm grip on the game in the first half of extra time. Daniel Lucey’s second point was followed by a goal from Dara. Aghabullogue replied with a goal of their own but then Darragh O’Connor finished to the net and a point from Ben gave us a five-point cushion. Would it be enough against the wind? Now our backs took control with Danny Cunningham, George Sinclair and Paul Delaney unbeatable. Darragh added a sixth goal for us and Olan Broderick put the finishing touches to our victory with a goal in the final minute. 7-17 to 8-6 was the final score of an amazing game. Well done to both teams for outstanding effort! These Aghabullogue boys are a serious team and no doubt we will meet them again up the line! Great cheers accompanied the presentation of the League trophy to captain fantastic Ryan McCarthy by cathaoirleach Donie Cahill, and the parade through Killeagh followed by the nicest ice-cream in County Cork (thanks Ursula!) made it a night to remember!
Team: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Karl O’Toole, Ryan McCarthy (1-2), Richie Landers, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Ben O’Connor (2-2), Owen Cosgrove, Dara Motherway (1-1), Olan Broderick (1-5), Ciaran Leahy (0-3), Daniel Lucey (0-2), Darragh O’Connor (2-0), Robert Sinclair (0-1), David Kelly (0-1), George Sinclair, Oisin McCarthy, Olan Coleman, Aaron O’Connell, Brian Murphy.
Minors one step away from Premier 1 glory
Rebel Óg Premier 1 Minor Hurling Championship Semi-Final
Killeagh-Ita’s 1-18, Valley Rovers 1-15
It took a mighty effort, but our minor hurlers got over the line against a never-say-die Valley Rovers team in the Carrigaline Court Premier 1 Minor Hurling Championship in Páirc Uí Rinn on Wednesday evening last. A blistering start gave us a gentle cushion from start to finish, although it was never possible to say the game was won until the very last whistle. Padraig Walsh scored our first point after 19 seconds, and by the fifth minute we led by 1-4 to 0-2, with Dan Landers gaoling after two minutes. Would it be easy? Certainly not, as Valleys battled away and were rewarded with a goal on the 22nd minute following a goal-line scramble. Eoghan Keniry, Dan Landers and Killian Treacy did the bulk of the scoring for our boys, while Darragh Cahill, Bobby McCarthy and Eoin O’Connor were playing brilliantly in defence. A half-time lead of 1-13 to 1-8 was positive, but more was needed. Our second-half performance was down a notch on the first, but this was thanks to the huge efforts made by our opponents. Dan Landers (2), Gary Leahy, with an excellent score from the left touchline, and a brilliant point from Dan Smiddy with his first touch, kept us ahead, and a free from Dan with three minutes to go gave us a four-point lead. Valleys pointed in the 60th minute and had two late attacks where they tried to breach our defence, but our boys held firm, and came out with a hard-earned victory. This qualifies us to play hot favourites Sarsfields in the final on Monday September 15th. One thing is sure; this team will give it every effort!
Team: Colin Walsh, Jack O’Rourke, Bobby McCarthy, Eoin O’Connor, Darragh Cahill, Darragh O’Brien, Kevin Murphy, Brendan Delaney, Padraig Walsh (0-1), Eoghan Keniry (0-4), Dan Landers (1-8, 1 free, 4 ‘65s), Shane Smiddy (0-1), Andrew Leahy, Gary Leahy (0-1), Killian Treacy (0-2).

Cork SHC: Killeagh 1-18 Courcey Rovers 0-16 Relegation Final, August 23rd, Riverstown at 7.00pm
Busy Week:
The club experienced one of its busiest weeks ever this past week and thankfully it was roses all the way. First up was the Premier 2 U16 final where our team took on Eire Og in Pairc Ui Rinn on Wednesday night, August 20th. In a marvellous display they won out comfortably on a score of 1-20 to 0-08. Next up was the meeting of Youghal and Carrigtwohill in the Cork SHC which was played at our club grounds on Friday evening last, Aug 22nd. A lot of preparation and work was put in by a large number of people at the club to ensure that our facilities for the teams and supporters of both clubs were in pristine condition. On the night there was a very effective and coordinated approach to ensure that all visitors to our grounds did so in a safe and orderly manner and also that disruption to our local community was kept to a minimum. The club wishes to express their sincere thanks to everybody who helped out in any way. Also well done to our juvenile chairman, Mr. Colman Motherway for the production of a wonderful (and valuable) match programme for the game…a great piece of work. Finally, and once again, the good wine was kept ‘til last. What a game and more importantly, what a victory. Despite the enormous pressure on everybody inolved in Killeagh GAA Club our senior hurlers maintained their senior status for 2015 with an emphatic victory over Courcey Rovers in Riverstown on Saturday evening, August 23rd. The team emerged from a terrific game with a well earned win on a score of 1-18 to 0-16. Well done to all the players in the the squad and the team management and a great big thanks to all the supporters who travelled to this game and all the other games this past season in the Cork SHC and the Cork SHL in support of Killeagh GAA Club.

U16s make history
Rebel Óg Premier 2 County Hurling Final Killeagh-Ita’s 1-20, Éire Óg 0-08
Killeagh-Ita’s Under 16 hurlers made history on Wednesday evening last in Páirc Uí Rinn by winning the Carrigaline Court Hotel Premier 2 U16 hurling title for the first time. Having beaten Ballinahassig (twice) and St. Finbarr’s en route to the final, this team gave their best performance of the season to outplay Éire Óg from the first ball to the last. Andrew Leahy opened the scoring with a point after 19 seconds, and all through Killeagh-Ita’s were in control, particularly through the spine of the team. Jack O’Rourke and Kevin Murphy were very commanding at full-back and centre-back respectively, Emmet Barron and Cathal Deane dominated midfield, and Andrew Leahy and Killian Treacy, at centre-forward and full-forward, did the bulk of the scoring up front. Éire Óg battled gamely and at half-time, trailing by just five points (0-10 to 0-05), they were still well in the game. Andrew and Killian were the chief scorers but Emmet Barron and Cathal Fitzgibbon also scored fine points from the right wing in the first half. The game slipped away from Éire Óg shortly after half time when Andrew Leahy controlled a high ball beautifully and smashed an unstoppable shot into the right corner of the net. Five subs were introduced and they all played their part, with 14-year-olds Sean Walsh and Fionn McDonnell scoring excellent points after their introduction to put a gloss on the scoreboard. Although he didn’t get on the scoresheet, arguably Killeagh-Ita’s best player on the field was David Ogbebor, who was named at corner-forward but covered every blade of grass on the pitch, tackling, running, blocking and passing, and winning many frees. This was a campaign where a small panel of 21 worked hard and all played their part through the campaign. Well done to all the boys and to their management team of Ger Fitzgibbon, Dick Walsh, Eddie Hayes and Tomas Treacy, who had the team in fine condition throughout the summer.

Following the presentation of the cup by Jim Forbes, Rebel Óg chairman, to our captain Christy Coughlan, who had a very impressive game at left-half back, it was back to Killeagh for a parade through the village (thanks Ian for the open-top bus!!) and down to our home in Páirc Uí Chinnéide for some refreshments and chat, and well-earned pizza for the boys! Many thanks to all the parents of the players who provided all the food and the catering on the evening and to the many friends and supporters who came to Páirc Uí Rinn to cheer on the boys, cheered them again on the main street on their return, and followed them home to Páirc Uí Chinnéide. With our senior hurlers securing their status in the pot for 2015 on Saturday evening, it has been a good few days for the Killeagh club. Perhaps some of these 16-year-olds might even get to play alongside the legend that is Joe Deane in 2015, 21 years after Joe’s own adult hurling career with Killeagh started as a 16-year-old. Now wouldn’t that be an unbelievable dream come true for these young boys!

Team: Aaron Walsh, Luke Fogarty, Jack O’Rourke, Jamie Landers, Fergal Smiddy, Kevin Murphy (0-1, ’65), Christy Coughlan, Emmet Barron (0-1), Cathal Deane, Eoin Fitzgibbon (0-1), Andrew Leahy (1-5), Shane Kearney, Keane Kelly Budds, Killian Treacy (0-10, 0-6f), David Ogbebor. Subs: Sean Walsh (0-1), Dylan Hogan, Jamie Clifford, Daniel Hickey, Fionn McDonnell (0-1), Padraig Leahy.

U14s bow out after replay
Rebel Óg Eastern A U14 Hurling Championship Replay Cloughduv 2-16, Killeagh-Ita’s 2-8
Having drawn our quarter final on Monday 11th August against Cloughduv at home (1-5 to 0-8) we travelled to Cloughduv for the replay two nights later. This time, Cloughduv got the better of our gallant team, who tried really hard to the very end, but were beaten by a physically stronger team. Well done for a good performance on both nights, and while championship success has eluded you for 2014, there is still a league final to be played, and much to play for yet.

Many thanks to Na Piarsaigh for the invite, the great hospitality on the day, and the lovely sunny weather!! It was an honour to represent our club in this tournament on the same week that Christy’s son Christy captained our Under 16 teams to county glory.

Minor Hurling
GARY AND KILLEAGH-ITA’S ‘DOUG’ DEEP FOR SUPER WIN
Our minor hurlers travelled to the CIT complex on Wednesday evening last to play a very tricky tie against Douglas in the Rebel Óg Premier 1 Minor Hurling quarter-final. There was a very large crowd in attendance and they were served up an extremely entertaining encounter by both teams. Killeagh-Ita’s were first to score although it did take more than five minutes as both teams were a little edgy and fearful of each other. Once they scored, a point from play by Eoghan Keniry, Killeagh-Ita’s found their rhythm and began to impress their game-plan on their opponents. Throughout the remaining twenty minutes of the half they progressively inflicted their fire-power on a dismayed Douglas team. They completely steamrolled and outplayed the opposition and at half-time they had a lead of ten points with the score Douglas 0-05 to Killeagh-Ita’s 3-06. While each and every Killeagh-Ita’s player gave their very best, it was Gary Leahy who stood out with a first-half personal score of 3-01. After the break the tide completely changed. Douglas made a few positional changes and their tactics were beginning to reap benefit. Killeagh-Ita’s seemed to be stuck to the ground as the Douglas players played out of their skins to restore their pride and get them back into contention in this game. By the end of the third quarter, Douglas had notched up 2-05 to Killeagh-Ita’s 0-01. With the scores now level, Douglas thought they could go on to win this match. They were made to think again as initially Eoghan Keniry restored the Killeagh-Ita’s lead by a point and this was followed by another superb goal from Gary Leahy for his and Killeagh-Ita’s fourth goal of the game. This seemed to knock the confidence of a valiant Douglas team and try as they might they just could not match the Killeagh-Ita’s determination to win. The final score of the game, 2-11 to 4-12 gives an indication as to the intensity of the game. After the initial shaky start, Killeagh-Ita’s took control in every area of the pitch. Each player gave their very best and while the back line continuously thwarted the Douglas forwards and kept their scoring chances to a minimum, their forward line constantly reaped reward with every attack. For the opening fifteen minutes of the second half they were subdued by a reorganised and revitalised Douglas team. It was a stern test for Killeagh-Ita’s and one which they passed with flying colours. The team selectors showed great faith in their players and were confident of the team’s overall ability to see out this game. The players never panicked; they kept their heads up and continued to play the same way as they did in the first half. Unfortunately for Douglas, they met a group of players who were in top form for this encounter. Killeagh-Ita’s were without a few key players but the replacements stepped up to the plate and played very well. As the Killeagh-Ita’s players and supporters went home happiest, both sets of players should be proud to know that they served up a thriller of a match for the large crowd.
Team: C Walsh, J O’Rourke, B McCarthy, P Delaney, D Cahill, D O’Brien, K Murphy, B Delaney, P Walsh, E Keniry, D Landers, S Smiddy, A Leahy, G Leahy, K Treacy.
Subs Used: C Deane, D Smiddy.
Fé 13 Iomáint St. Colman’s 0-5, Killeagh-Ita’s 6-9
This game, played last Monday in Cloyne’s new pitch, was not so much a game of two halves but of one quarter and three quarters. St. Colman’s dominated the first quarter and raced into a three point lead by the 10th minute, and could have been even further ahead had they taken their chances. Full-back Cian McDonald, flanked by Olan Coleman and George Sinclair, all had to be vigilant to limit the scoring damage. Two astute changes by our management team of Mike, Richie and Andy turned the game. The swapping of wing backs Paul and Richie helped both and curbed the influence of the St. Colman’s wing men, while the change of Ben O’Connor to midfield and Dara Motherway to centre forward also aided their respective performances. Dara struck over our first point in the 12th minute and two quick goals by dangerous full-forward Daniel Lucey seemed to knock the proverbial stuffing out of our opposition, who had to make changes of their own to counteract Daniel’s threat. A third goal from Darragh O’Connor, following excellent teamwork, gave us a 3-3 to 0-5 lead at half time.

The second half saw Ciaran Leahy start at corner forward and he wasted no time in making his mark, scoring 1-1 in the first five minutes. A third goal from Daniel and another from Ben O’Connor added to our green flag count, although we probably should have scored more points than we did, although Olan Broderick was accurate both from play and from frees. Despite our dominance, the St. Colman’s goalkeeper had a fantastic game and pulled off some excellent saves and clearances. Unfortunately for St. Colman’s they were unable to add to their half-time score which gave us a comfortable win. This win should see our boys qualify for a league final, as it puts us second in the table behind Aghabullogue. Finally, thank you to St. Colman’s for providing a referee when the appointed referee failed to appear.
Team: Robbie Treacy, Olan Coleman, Cian McDonald, George Sinclair, Paul Delaney, Ryan McCarthy, Richie Landers, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Dara Motherway (0-1), Owen Cosgrove, Ben O’Connor (1-0), Olan Broderick (0-5, 0-2f), Oisin McCarthy, Daniel Lucey (3-0), Darragh O’Connor (1-1). Subs: Ciaran Leahy (1-2), Karl O’Toole, Brian Murphy.

Fé 16 Iomáint Rebel Óg Premier 2 Championship Semi-Final Killeagh-Ita’s 4-10, St. Finbarr’s 0-9
Our Under 16 hurlers qualified for the Premier 2 County Final against Eire Óg by virtue of their win over St. Finbarr’s on Friday night last in Cobh. The damage was done in the first half when Killeagh-Ita’s played with the strong wind. Killian Treacy was exceptional at full-forward and his goal after 9 minutes was a real team effort, with Shane Kearney and Andrew Walsh playing excellent passes to give Killian his opportunity. Keane Budds was also a threat in the corner, while Andrew and Shane added goals of their own in the final third of the first half. This left us 3-7 to 0-4 ahead at half time, with a mountain to climb for the Barrs. The second half was a strange affair, with no score for the first 12 minutes and an Eoin Fitzgibbon goal at that stage finishing off the game as a contest. The Barrs continued to battle gamely and scored some lovely points in the last ten minutes, but it was too little, too late, as Kevin Murphy, Jamie Landers and Christy Coughlan led the charge from defence for our boys, while Cathal Deane and Emmet Barron worked tirelessly at midfield. Only sixty minutes left now, but Eire Óg will provide a stiff test. Here’s hoping….
Team: Aaron Walsh, Jamie Landers, Jack O’Rourke, Luke Fogarty, Fergal Smiddy, Kevin Murphy (0-1, ‘65), Christy Coughlan, Cathal Deane, Emmet Barron, Eoin Fitzgibbon (1-0), Andrew Leahy (1-0), Shane Kearney (1-1), Keane Budds (0-2), Killian Treacy (1-6, 0-2f), David Ogbebor. Subs: Sean Walsh, Daniel Hickey, Dylan Hogan, Padraig Leahy.

U-21Hurling C’ship:
A large crowd supporting both clubs attended this game which was played in Castlemartyr on Saturday at 7pm. It was a beautiful evening at the ever improving facilities in Castlemartyr. While the game itself was not a classic performance by either team there were, on occasions, some great individual displays especially in the art of free-taking. Killeagh-Ita’s had a number of players who were carrying niggling injuries but they played through the pain barrier to eke out a victory and set up a semi-final clash with Carrigtwohill. They got off to the ideal start with a pointed free from Mathew Murphy. They edged further ahead by three points before Cloyne opened their account with a pointed free also. The rest of the half was very much a display of free-taking as very few scores came from open play. At the break Killeagh-Ita’s led by 0-10 to 0-08 but suffered a hammer blow just before half-time when the heavily strapped Mathew Murphy had to leave the field through injury. His replacement in the second half was Cork minor hurler Eoghan Keniry and what a start he had to his game. With the second half only four minutes old he had 1-01 from open play on the scoreboard to stretch Killeagh-Ita’s lead to five points. His goal came from a slick move down the left hand side where he combined with Gary Leahy to score a truly wonderful goal. However Cloyne stuck to their task and worked away at reducing the deficit. Their cause was helped by some silly frees given by the Killeagh-Itas team in front of goals. Cloyne chose to score points and began to put the boys in green under pressure. As the game entered the final five minutes it was there for the taking and Killeagh-Itas made the most of the opportunities given. They scored three points without reply to emerge victorious on a scoreline of 1-17 to 0-17.

Fé 11 Iomáint Watergrasshill 4-3, Killeagh-Ita’s 4-3
A very entertaining game of hurling was played in Felix Sarsfields Park in Watergrasshill on Tuesday evening last. Our team was short a number of regulars so a few Under 10s were drafted in and they played really well. In this 13-a-side game, both sides got fine scores and hurled the ball quickly up and down the field. David Buckley was very brave in goals, George Walsh and Rory Lynch were solid at the back, while Evan Lane did really well at centre back where he was ably assisted by Under 10 wing backs Rory Motherway and Darragh O’Leary. Ben Budds and Eoin Brenner covered loads of ground at midfield, while our most impressive line was our half-forward line. Daniel Walsh and Conor Meade, both U-10’s caught some great ball and got a goal each while Jack Flanagan, David Buttimer and Colm Landers also did well up front. David got the score of the game, finishing off a fine move with great passes from Eoin Brenner and Conor Meade. Having led by 2-1 to 1-3 at half time our boys had to play against the wind in the second half and held a 2-goal lead with time almost up, but two goals, the second a bullet, brought our hosts level and a draw was the final, and the fairest, result.
Team: David Buckley, George Walsh, Rory Lynch, Rory Motherway, Evan Lane, Darragh O’Leary, Eoin Brenner, Ben Budds, Conor Meade, Daniel Walsh, Jack Flanagan, Colm Landers, David Buttimer.
