Following the recent elections at county board level, Killeagh GAA Club would like to congratulate club member Tracey Kennedy who was victorious in the race for the vice-chairmans place. She was confirmed to the position following Sunday’s convention and becomes the first female vice-chairperson of Cork GAA. She also handed over the mantle of Cork PRO, which she held for three great years to Mr. Edmond Forrest. It is truly a great honour for Tracey, for her family and everyone involved with Killeagh GAA club. We wish her all the very best in her term of office and also wish to thank all the delegates and clubs who gave her their valuable support.

JFL Div 3 League Final Replay;
Glenbower Rovers took on Glenville in the replay of the East Cork Division 3 Football League final under lights in Carrigtwohill on Thursday night last.
These two teams resumed where they left off last week with both producing another good tough game of football played to a high standard. Glenville made a good start with an early goal, but the killeagh attack kicked into gear with Bryan McCarthy, Noel O’Connor and Deccy Long kicking some excellent scores and with Aidan Morrison and Patrick O Brien playing excellent. However Glenville were always dangerous when they broke up field and after conceding another goal we finished the half two points down on a score of 0-07 to 2-03.
It was all to play for in the second half with both teams giving it their all. While we had a good amount of possession we found it difficult to get scores. Glenville pushed it out to a four point game before Deccy Long scored a well taken goal after a great run by the hardworking Paul Keniry.
Glenville then went on to score two points and again went a goal ahead. We pushed on in attempt for a second goal and were unlucky to see Noel O’ Connors effort come back off the crossbar and the Glenville keeper making a a good save from a Bryan Mc effort, before time ran out. The score ended 1-08 to 2-08 and it was a disappointing end to the season. But the selectors were appreciative of the effort put in by all players during the year and especially in the last two games.
Team 1.Colm Crowley 2. Ger Griffin 3. Conor McNamara 4. Nial O’Neill 5. Brendan Keniry 6. Eamon Byrne 7. Aidan Morrison 8. Patrick O’ Brien 9. Ger Collins 10. Dylan Coleman 11. Bryan McCarthy 12. Paul Keniry 13. Shane Smiddy 14. Noel O’Connor 15. Declan Long.

Main sponsors on the day were Dominic and Maurette Fogarty and the outing was also supported in sponsorship by Dr. Matt Morehan.

JFL Div 3 League Final;
On Tuesday last the 25th of November Glenbower Rovers took on Glenville in this final in Glanmire.
We started well with early points from Deccy Long and Bryan McCarthy, we were then caught on the counter attack by Glenville who used the ball well and scored two goals against the run of play. We dug in deep and we were only a point behind at half time.
Despite going behind by three points in the second half we started to dominate the game and went level with 15 min remaining. Glenville then got their third goal and we again had to battle back with POB dominating around the middle of the field and was ably assisted by Brendan Delaney and Ger Collins Bryan Mc continued to punish Glenville for their indiscipline with points from brilliant free taking. We drew level and had a chance to win it, but extra time was the order of the day.
However five mins into extra time the lights went out and the game is to be replayed on Thursday 4/12/14 in Carrigtwohill at 8.15 pm.
Credit has to go to both teams who put in a great effort in a good tough game played at a high standard and played in the right spirit.
Special mention has to go to lads who travelled from Tralee and Limerick for the game. So we look forward to another game with Glenville next Thursday all support is welcome.
Team: Colin Walsh, Ger Griffin, Brendan Keniry, Nial O’Neill, Ben Wharton, Patrick O’Brien, Eamon Byrne, Ger Collins, Brendan Delaney, Colm Crowley, Bryan McCarthy, Mikey Fitzgerald, Deccy Long, Noel O’Connor, Paul Keniry.

Juvenile Notes:
GREAT CELEBRATIONS AT THE GARRYVOE HOTEL!
Saturday last, November 29th, saw every square inch used in the Garryvoe Ballroom as over 230 people of all ages arrived for the Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Party 2014, where the VIPs were the victorious Under 12, Under 13 and Under 16 teams who all won titles in 2014. Accompanying these 65 players were their proud parents, grandparents and friends. Special guests on the night were Jim Forbes, Cathaoirleach, Rebel Óg Central Board, Fr. Tim Hazelwood, PP, and our own local hero Joe Deane. Joe may have stepped out from the spotlight on the national stage now, but for Killeagh he had as good a year as ever in 2014, so it was a special privilege for these boys to be presented with their medals by the player whom all of them will forever try to emulate. Many thanks to Garryvoe Hotel for their accommodation of the full house, to our bainisteoiri Donie, Richie and Ger (with Tomas) for their fine speeches on the night in introducing their teams, and a special thanks to those who planned and organised the night – especially Karen, Caroline, Liz, Olivia, Tricia and Ursula. DJ Eoin kept young and old entertained with a great range of music once the formalities had been completed, although for some the heat and the noise forced them outside on a night where the temperature was more akin to an August than a late November evening. It was a fitting way to end 2014!

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.
Subs: M Fitzgerald, K Budds, D Motherway, E Murphy, K O’Connor, J Heffernan, P Delaney.

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.
