League Title;
Our junior ‘B’ hurlers overcame many obstacles to win the Division 3 East Cork League title on Wednesday night, Nov 12th 2014. Sarsfields provided a strong challenge and fought very hard throughout the game but our boys managed to absorb tremendous pressure to see them off. The weather also provided a stiff challenge to both teams but Killeagh seemed to cope better and used the elements to their advantage when the opportunities presented themselves. The old saying that ‘Goals win matches’ was certainly true for this encounter. Killeagh had two fine goals on the board after fifteen minutes of play and added another killer one from a penalty at the start of the second half to set up a well deserved victory. After sixty minutes of fine hurling by both sets of players in difficult conditions, Killeagh won a free in the heart of their defence. Goalkeeper Colin Walsh steadied himself over the ball and launched a massive puck deep into Sarsfields territory. The ball broke from captain Colm Crowley to Eamon Byrne and he calmly stroked over a sweet, sweet point to claim a victory. Team manager Liam Kelly was absolutely delighted with the performance of his lads and said that the victory was achieved because everyone played together and for each other, a real team effort. His words were echoed by selector John Walsh who also praised the troops for their dedication to the team throughout the season and not just on the night. Ray Rochford pointed out that Kenneth Budds has now added another medal to his collection which began by winning the U12 title back in 1984, Liam Kelly also played with that U12 team and tonights victory was further reward for these lads who have given tremendous service to Killeagh GAA club. Congratulations and well done to all and especially to Liam Kelly and John Walsh who looked after the team this season. Final score was Killeagh 3-06 Sarsfields 0-14.
The Killeagh team, who became the first in our club to win an East Cork Title with a Third Team, was: C Walsh, B Wharton, N O’Connor, D Motherway, K Budds, B Keniry, S Lucey, T Crotty, D Coleman, P Keniry, G Collins, D Long, E Byrne, C Crowley, K Fennelly. Subs: E Murphy, J Walsh, M Fitzgerald, L Kelly.
League Play-Off;
Our junior ‘B’ footballers had an impressive win against Cloyne in Killeagh on Saturday evening, Nov 15th 2014 and so reach a league final. It was very much a free flowing game aided by mostly favourable conditions on the night and two lively and enthusiastic teams. Glenbower started much better with a point inside the first minute from open play courtesy of Noel ‘Dip’ O’Connor. After fifteen minutes of play, Glenbower were ahead by five points with the score at 1-04 to 0-02, points coming from Dylan Coleman(play), Brian McCarthy(free) and Shane Smiddy(free) and a goal from ‘Dip’. On twenty-five minutes Rovers were in complete control and were up by nine points with the score at 2-06 to 0-03. The two points were from Dylan and Shane from play and another goal from ‘Dip’. Cloyne came into the game a little bit more in the final five minutes of the first half and put 1-02 on the board while Glenbower added a point to their tally with a point from midfielder Brendan Delaney. There was a very heavy shower of rain when the players started the second half with Glenbower ahead on a scoreline of 2-07 to 1-05 but they quickly got into their stride. As the shower disappeared, the first score in the second half was a point from play courtesy of ‘Dip’. Cloyne replied almost immediately with a point of their own from a free but this turned out to be their final score of the game. Hard work and intelligent passing helped Glenbower to grow in confidence and they killed off Cloyne with some impressive points.At the end of the game points from Brian(two), Eamon Byrne and a sweet left foot effort from ‘Dip’ gained a well deserved victory for Glenbower Rovers and a place in the League final. Well done to all involved. Final score was Glenbower Rovers 2-12 Cloyne 1-06.
Team: C Walsh, N O’Neill,B Keniry, G Griffin, B Wharton, E Byrne, A Morrisson, B Delaney, G Collins, C Crowley, B McCarthy, D Coleman, D Long, N O’Connor, S Smiddy.

Juvenile Notes:
Under 15 Hurling Blitz A Good Preparation for 2015
It may have been the final event of 2014, and only the second Under 15 day out we’ve had this year, but last Saturday’s 4-team Under 15 hurling blitz held in Cobh could yet prove to be significant, not for the result on the day, but as the first step on the journey of the Under 16 team of 2015 under the new management of Richard Walsh and Richie Brennan. The tight pitches, smaller goals, and the 12-a-side short games made this blitz very competitive, with little between all four teams – ourselves, Kiltha Óg, Lisgoold and hosts Cobh. We were narrowly defeated by Cobh (1-5 to 1-1, level at full time) and Lisgoold (1-5 to 0-6) in our first two games (both of which we could have won), which put us into the Plate Final against our neighbours Kiltha Óg. While we didn’t have any luck converting our chances in the first two games, we finally clicked in front of goals in the longer final (30 minutes as opposed to 20) and won convincingly in the end by 5-7 to 1-3. Padraig Leahy, Sean Walsh, Richie Long and Jamie Clifford did the bulk of our scoring, while captain Keane Kelly Budds, Shane Kearney and Jamie Landers were very effective in the half-back /midfield area and Dylan Hogan and Daniel Hickey kept things tight further back. Well done boys – time to start thinking ahead with a little hope and optimism.
Panel: Fionn McDonnell, Dylan Hogan, Daniel Hickey, Darragh Geary, Jamie Landers, Shane Kearney, Keane Kelly Budds, Sean Walsh, Richie Long, Adrian Galvin, Padraig Leahy, Jamie Clifford, Liam McCarthy, Barry Motherway, James Kent and Olin Hennessy.

Under 13s wrap up with a win
Our Under 13 hurlers finished off their season with an entertaining game under lights in Killeagh on Friday evening last against our neighbours Kiltha Og. With little bar bragging rights at stake, it gave our management (Richie and Michael) an opportunity to give game time to all Under 13 boys, leaving our Under 12 boys on the sideline initially. A 1-8 to 0-5 win was hard-earned, and it required stout defending and saves from Darragh O’Connor, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney and the Sinclairs, Robert and Georger, to keep a clean sheet. At the other end, Olan Broderick, Owen Cosgrove, Ben O’Connor and Richie Landers were our scorers. Well done everyone! Thanks again to reiteoir Paudie Kearney for keeping the game flowing without incident from start to finish.
Team: Darragh O’Connor, George Sinclair, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Danny Cunningham, Ryan McCarthy, Robert Sinclair, Richie Landers, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Owen Cosgrove, Olan Broderick, Dara Motherway, David Kelly, Olan Coleman, Aaron O’Connell, Tommy Noonan, Robbie Treacy, Ben O’Connor, Ciaran Leahy.

Juvenile Notes:
Minors Come Up Short In Deluge
Premier 1 Minor Hurling League Final Douglas 5-9, Killeagh-Ita’s 4-8
Our brave minor hurling team finished their long 2014 campaign on Saturday last in Ballinlough. Unfortunately for both teams and their die-hard supporters, the game was played in an unrelenting barrage of wind and rain, which made conditions on the pitch almost unplayable, and off the pitch very uncomfortable. Well done to the supporters for sticking it out under absolutely no shelter, and well done to both teams for giving 100% on a truly awful day for hurling. Striking the ball cleanly was almost impossible, players slipped and slid all over the place, and yet we saw some fantastic scores, great high fielding and blocking, and ultimately victory to Douglas by virtue of their strong display from the 45th to 55th minute, when they turned a two-point deficit (4-3 to 3-8) into a seven point lead (5-9 to 3-8). In spite of Shane Smiddy’s late goal (just reward for an outstanding display, particularly in the second half when he plucked four balls from the sky in seemingly impossible situations), we were unable to close the gap any further. Well done to this panel of players and to their management team of Niall, Colm and Brendan who have collectively given outstanding service this year. While the rewards for 2014 are not immediately apparent, the rewards for the club in the medium and long term from this fine crop of players should be great.

Hurling
Hurling semi-finals and final took place last Sunday on a dry but extremely windy morning. Each and every one of the boys that took part showed a huge determination to win.

Great credit should be given to these lads on the performances they have given throughout the leagues.

The team panel was Rory Mackey, Colum Leahy, Rory Motherway, Dylan McCarthy, David Buckley, Pearce Geary, Daniel Griffin, Diarmuid Buckley, Ben Fogarty, Ben Budds, Daniel Walsh, Ciaran Brennan, Conor Meade, Sean O’Riordan and Jack O’Connor. The lads played and won all of their three matches under the watchful eyes of Richie Brennan and Declan Fogarty. They played Aghada and Watergrasshill. Bill Cooper was on hand throughout the morning and willingly stood for photographs with the teams. He also handed out their medals at the end of the tournament. Well done to all.

Thanks to our Chairman, Colman Motherway and all the parents who helped him at each blitz this year in Pairc Ui Chinneide. They were wonderful help by supplying and serving refreshments to all teams and supporters who visited our grounds this year.

Thanks to all the trainers of the U10 hurling and football team. Great work was done by them during the year with these lads.

Premier 2 Hurling League Final: Killeagh-Ita’s 3-16, Shandrum 3-11
Our Under 16 team completed the championship / league double by defeating a gallant, skilful and combative Shandrum side in the League final played in Mallow on Sunday afternoon. Both teams gave this their best shot and in the end Jamie Clifford’s two second-half goals were the difference as they gave our team a cushion which ensured we maintained our lead when Shandrum came with a late run to threaten us in the last ten minutes. Killian Treacy was the outstanding player in the first half, scoring 1-5, 1-3 of which was from play, including two brilliant points from the right-hand touchline. This helped us into a six-point lead at half-time – 1-10 to 0-7. Andrew Leahy was his usual efficient self in front of the posts, with two points in each half. Early substitute Dylan Hogan (Luke Fogarty had to leave injured after a few minutes) and Kevin Murphy were very secure at the back, while David Ogbebor and Eoin Fitzgibbon worked well on the wings.

The critical period of the second half was between the 9th and 12th minutes. Shandrum scored a fine goal to reduce the deficit to five points (1-12 to 0-7) after 39 minutes, but Jamie Clifford replied with two goals in two minutes, and these, along with Andrew’s third and fourth points, left us twelve ahead (3-14 to 1-8) with thirteen minutes left, and seemingly uncatchable. But in hurling any lead is precarious, and Shandrum finished like a train, scoring 2-3 to just two points in reply, and but for two exceptional saves by Aaron Walsh (one in each half), we’d have been one point down rather than five up at the finish. As it was, we survived, so captain Christy Coughlan received the cup from Central Board Chairman Jim Forbes.

So well done boys, a very successful season comes to a close with two cups and much to be proud of. Well done to the management team of Ger Fitzgibbon, Dick Walsh, Tomas Treacy, Eddie Hayes and Paudie Kearney for a year of unquestionable progress. The future looks bright!

Premier 1 Minor Hurling League S/F: Killeagh-Ita’s 1-18 Valley Rovers 1-09
Minor Hurlers Reach League Final
Killeagh-Ita’s minor hurling team overcame Valley Rovers in a league semi-final on Saturday last, October 11th at Delany’s GAA Grounds. While it was a lovely afternoon for hurling supporters were few and far between for this encounter. Valley Rovers struck first blood with a goal virtually from the throw-in. No panic in the Killeagh-Ita’s squad as they quietly went about their business and with some great points from play and placed balls they were in control thereafter. They cemented their authority over this game despite having to cope with some dubious and wayward tackling by their opponents and were ahead by three points at half-time on a scoreline of 0-11 to 1-05. When the referee commenced the second half, Killeagh-Ita’s punished the opposition from start to finish of the thirty minutes with some great scores. Chief among those great scores was a fabulous goal from Gary Leahy courtesy of some good teamwork from Eoin and Andy. They out-scored Valley Rovers by six points in the second half and they ran out easy winners in the end on a score of Killeagh-Ita’s 1-18 to 0-09 to Valley Rovers.
