Minor Hurling C’ship: Carrigtwohill 3-05 Killeagh-Ita’s 2-14 played in Cobh on Sunday April 20th at 6pm
Minor Hurling
Carrigtwohill 3-05 Killeagh-Ita’s 2-14 played in Cobh on Sunday April 20th at 6pm
Our minor hurlers travelled to Cobh on Sunday afternoon and took part in a lively and entertaining hurling game against Carrigtwohill. The good weather we had been having turned sour just before the start of the match and the rain made it difficult for both teams to play to their full potential. There were a couple of forced changes to the usual lineout but the lads emerged victorious although they were given a little fright near the end by a never-say-die attitude from Carrigtwohill.
It was fully five minutes before the first score of the game courtesy of a Dan Landers free. This was followed by a second Killeagh-Itas point on ten minutes from Killian Treacy from play. Carrig then came into the game and scored a commanding 1-04 to lead by five points after twenty minutes play. Killeagh-Ita’s really started to fire on all cylinders after this and saw out the first half with a stunning 1-05 without reply. Dan Landers supplied three points from two 65’s and one free, Andy Leahy contributed a point from play and Cork minor hurler Eoghan Keniry got off the mark with a well-taken goal. Dan Landers finished the scoring for the first period with an absolutely superb point from a difficult angle on the right hand side. Killeagh-Itas were now leading at the break on a score of 1-07 to 1-04 but seemed well in control of the game.
Starting the second half with two substitutes replacing injured players Killeagh-Itas were playing some great hurling but could not convert chances into scores. Carrig also missed a good few chances to score at the start of the second half and it took nearly ten minutes to open up the second half scores with a point from a Dan Landers free. Eoghan Keniry and Shane Smiddy added further points on ten and a half and eleven minutes before Carrig scored their first point on fourteen minutes. On fifteen minutes, Killian Treacy crashed the ball to the net for Killeagh-Ita’s second goal after great teamwork but also with the help of a sublime Eoghan Keniry pass. Dan Landers followed this with two points from play on nineteen and twenty minutes and Killeagh-Ita’s were in full flow. Further points from Eoghan Keniry on twenty-five and Andrew Leahy on twenty-seven minutes seemed to put Killeagh-Ita’s beyond the reach of Carrigtwohill but they started to fight back and had scored two goals and a point before the final whistle blew. Killeagh-Ita’s emerged the winners after a fine display and accepted the applause from the large crowd attending the game.
Team: D Cusack, J O’Rourke, B McCarthy, E O’Connor, D Cahill, D O’Brien, K Murphy, E Keniry, B Delaney, C Cusack, G Leahy, S Smiddy, K Treacy, D Landers, A Leahy.

Minor Hurling
Our minor hurlers travelled to Ahavine on Saturday afternoon and took part in a very lively and entertaining hurling game against Fr.O’Neills. It was a lovely afternoon for the game and was helped by the superb condition of the playing surface. Team management were forced into a number of changes due to niggling injuries to key players but the replacements gave a good account of themselves for the duration of the game. The half-time score was Fr.O’Neills 0-10 to Killeagh-Ita’s 1-09, the goal courtesy of Cork minor hurler Eoghan Keniry. The second half very much followed the course of the first half with both teams dominating at different stages. However, it was Killeagh-Ita’s who emerged victorious on a final score of Killeagh-Ita’s 2-15 to Fr. O’Neills 0-20, the second goal coming from Shane Smiddy.

Féile Blitz runs off smoothly in Páirc Uí Chinnéide
On Saturday last Páirc Uí Chinnéide hosted Group 6 of the Féile na nGael Under 14 Hurling Competition. 5 teams participated – Killeagh-Ita’s, Bride Rovers, St. Colman’s, Fr. O’Neill’s and Sarsfields, with a total of 10 games being played. The first 2 games began at 10.45 a.m. and the final 2 games concluded at 2.30 p.m., so it was a long day for all the players and their supporters and mentors. At the end of the Blitz, Sarsfields emerged victorious by virtue of having conceded less than Bride Rovers, who had drawn with Sars in their first game and remained undefeated through the rest of the day. The weather was nice, apart from the final 10 minutes of the last games, the pitches were in great condition, and the 4 referees had a relatively easy day with good co-operation from all teams and mentors. Many thanks to the co-ordinators for the day – Ursula and Tommy – and to the ground staff, spearheaded by Sean Treacy, for ensuring that everything was in perfect order on the day. A particular thank you to the parents of all the U14 Killeagh-Ita’s panel who provided mountains of food to feed supporters and players throughout the day, and managed the catering and cleaning with a smile!

Cork SHC: Killeagh versus Glen Rovers in Midleton on Saturday May 31st at 7.00pm
U21 Football Semi-Final: Glenville 3-08 Glenbower Rovers 1-08 played in Ballynoe on Sat April 5th.
Glenbower Rovers headed to Ballynoe on Saturday evening last to take on Glenville in the semi final of the East Cork U21 football championship. To say conditions were atrocious would be an understatement, it was more like scenes from the Hollywood blog buster Noah.
Rovers started the game well, taking the first two points before Glenville hit us for a goal on a counter –attack. We worked our way back into the game with Mathew Murphy and Ciaran O’Brien playing well but Glenville were very economic with their possession and tapped over further scores and again breached our defence for a second goal. We were to rue not taking two goal scoring opportunities during this period. Although going in at half time 2-5 to 5 points down we had the elements at our back in the second half and we felt we were in with a good chance.
Again with we started the second half well but were caught with a soft goal when a high ball looked to be going over the bar but dropped into the top corner out of goalkeeper, Colin Walshs, reach. This gave us a real uphill battle to face which wasn’t helped when Ciaran O’Brien was harshly shown the black card. But credit to the Glenbower Rovers lads, they kept their heads up and when Shane Smiddy scored an excellent goal after a great move and young Dara O’Brien, who is a promising footballer, took a great point it brought us back into the game. However it was not to be our day and Glenville finished out winners on a scoreline of 3-8 to 1-8.
It is a pity that the game had to be played in such conditions, but credit to Glenville they were able to adapt to the conditions better than us and as stated, were very economical with their possession. So our promising run in the U21 football championship comes to an end in disappointment, the selection committee would like to thank the panel who put in a lot of work since January. The attention now turns to the minor footballers second round game on Tuesday and to the Junior A first round game against Glenville on Saturday the 19/4/2014.

U13 Football League:
Our young footballers had their first league outing on Monday evening last, March 31st. They played Glenville at 6.45pm in Glenville. Although they tried very hard they were up against a far, far superior outfit and failed to get anything out of the game. They were missing some key players and had to call up some younger players but you could not take anything away from a hugely talented Glenville team. They played the ‘one hop, one solo’ rule to great effect and outclassed our players in most areas of the field. Our young players left the field dejected with the result despite having great support from the parents who travelled the long journey to Glenville that evening. Many thanks to all who helped and supported the team in any way on the night.
Team: O Cosgrove, D Lucey, C McDonald, B Murphy, P Delaney, O Broderick, G Sinclair, R McCarthy, R Sinclair, K O’Toole, D Motherway, C Fitzgibbon, C Coughlan, J Guerin, D O’Connor, A O’Connell.
U13 Hurling League:
It was similarly a story of two halves in our opening Eastern A Hurling League game on Saturday, when we travelled to Ballyanly Sports Complex to take on Inniscarra. On a miserable evening, we played against the wind in the first half and were 4-5 to 1-1 down at half time. Our second half performance was much better and we managed to reduce the margin to the minimum but the clock beat us and we lost on a scoreline of 5-3 to 4-7. Well done to all the boys, and thanks to the Under 12s who travelled with us (Ben, Ciaran, Ciaran and Robbie) to replace our sick and unavailable players. Many thanks also to the parents who made two long journeys in one week to Glenville and to Inniscarra.
U-14s make it two from two
Eastern A HL: Killeagh-Ita’s 2-14 Youghal 3-6
The second league game of the Rebel Óg Eastern Fé 14 Hurling League took place in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Thursday evening last, when we welcomed our other neighbours Youghal. Our boys had a good start, with Richie Long firing over 3 quick points, followed by a goal in the 5th minute, to give us a 6 point lead. Youghal responded by switching the impressive Kyle Brown onto Richie and he managed to curb Richie’s influence to some extent. Two goals for Youghal mid-way through the half left the score at 1-5 to 2-1 in our favour, and an Olan Broderick goal extended this lead. Just before half-time we conceded a third goal but late points from Padraig Leahy and Olan gave us an advantage of 2-8 to 3-3 at half time. The second half was much lower scoring, with defences on top, but Richie added five points (three from placed balls) and Adrian Galvin added another, while Youghal added three of their own. With very strong performances from Dylan Hogan and Padraig Leahy in defence, and a good second-half from Barry Motherway and Richie Landers, we held on to deservedly pick up our second set of league points.
Team: Darragh O’Connor, James Kent, Dylan Hogan, Daragh Geary, Barry Motherway, Padraig Leahy (0-1), Richie Landers, Ryan McCarthy, Adrian Galvin (0-2), Dara Motherway, Kieran Daly, Richie Long (1-9), Andrew Foley, Olan Broderick (1-1), Olin Hennessy (0-1). Subs: Danny Cunningham, Owen Cosgrove, Tommy Noonan, Daniel Lucey, Oisin McCarthy, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Tommy Noonan, David Kelly.
Our Under 13s had two games in the past week. On Monday we travelled with a depleted squad to Glenville, with Under 12s Brian Murphy and Christian Coughlan helping us out (Brian scored a nice goal towards the end) by travelling to play this opening game in the Eastern A Football League. We were no match for a strong Glenville team, although our second-half performance gave some hope for the future.
U12 Played well in terrible conditions
For the second week running our U12s played a hurling match in very hard conditions. Battling the cold and rain the lads played well to get 1 win out of 1. This was the lads first hurling league match of the year against Erins Own. They got a great start and continued on from that. Final score Killeagh-Itas 7-8 to Erins Own 1-9. Well done lads another great performance

Minor Football:
Killeagh-Itas minor footballers played Glanmire in their first round championsip tie in Cobh on Sunday, March 30th. It was a very good game for those who travelled to see the lads in action as the match required twenty minutes of extra time to separate the teams. From the throw-in, Killeagh-Itas were first to the ball and were first to get on the scoreboard with a point from play. They continued to play very well and added two more points before Glanmire got off the mark. Glanmire held the initiative and were level on three points each after twenty minutes of play. Killeagh-Itas then regained the advantage and went in at the break leading by 0-05 to 0-04. However, Glanmire came out the stronger of the two in the second half and picked off some nice points to race into a three point lead before Killeagh-Itas broke their second half duck. Shortly after opening their second-half account, disaster struck as Killeagh-Itas lost their goalkeeper for a black card offence and conceded a goal from the resultant penalty. All hands to the pump then for the remains of the second half and they showed great mettle in overcoming a five point deficit to gain a draw at the ned of normal time with both teams scoring 1-10 each. Unfortunately though, they failed to shine for the duration of the extra time and managed to add one point from play while Glanmire scored 2-03 to run out winners on a final score of Glanmire 3-13 to Killeagh-Itas 1-11. Killeagh-Itas must now wait and see who their opponents will be in a qualifier round.

Our young footballers had a challenge game against Kiltha Óg on Saturday last, March 29th in Killeagh. Despite the poor weather there was a great turnout of players for the game. Both teams enjoyed a very worthwhile work-out ahead of forthcoming league games. There was a good display of individual skills and also good teamwork skills from both teams and both sets of mentors were very satisfied with the challenge. Killeagh-Itas U13’s would like to sincerely thank the Kiltha Óg players, mentors and parents/supporters for travelling over for the game despite the very poor weather. Our U13’s play their first football league game against Glenville on Monday evening, March 31st in Glenville at 6.45pm
Fun Quiz is Great Fun!
Thursday night last saw Killeagh Hall packed to the rafters for the first annual Killeagh-Ita’s Fun Quiz for Primary School Pupils. A massive 46 teams participated, with all corners of the hall and stage full to capacity, catering for pupils from all the schools in the parish, as well as teams from Clonpriest, Castlemartyr, Scoil Choráin, Youghal, Ballintotis and Knockanore. The heads were scratched and the brains racked for almost two hours and 100 questions, and at the end the honours went to one of the Castlemartyr teams who had a great score, Caoimhe Barry, Odhran Cantwell, Ronan Hayes and Conor Ronayne, missing only 4 questions all night. Teams from Inch NS and Killeagh NS followed, just one point behind, while spot prizes were also won by teams from Kyle and Inch. The proceeds of the night were shared between Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA and Inch Foróige who are sending a group to Kolkata in India next month. Well done to all involved and to everyone who helped on the night and a big thank you to all the young boys and girls who came and gave it their best shot! We’re looking forward to the 2015 quiz already.
U-14 Hurling:
Classic game ends in one-point victory
Killeagh-Ita’s 3-8, Kiltha Óg 3-7
The opening league game of the Rebel Óg Eastern Fé 14 Hurling League took place in the Field of Dreams under lights in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Friday evening last, when we welcomed our neighbours Kiltha Óg. From the first whistle (Jim Daly in good control throughout), this was a rip-roaring encounter with great hurling and effort displayed by both sides. Our boys settled quickly, with Richie Long on the mark with an early point and goal. Olin Hennessy, Adrian Galvin and Ryan McCarthy were striking lots of good ball in the middle third, while Dylan Hogan and Padraig Leahy were dominant in defence. Kiltha came back with some good points, mostly from frees, and just before half-time they drew level, 1-3 to 0-6. Then Olan Broderick, who had just been introduced as a sub, made a quick impression with a fine goal to give our boys a three point interval lead. Kiltha came out all guns blazing in the second half, and two goals in the first ten minutes gave them a lead of 2-7 to 2-4. Shortly after, Cian McDonald won possession and burst in and kicked a fine goal to level the match, and tow further points (Olan and Richie) put us 2 ahead. Back came Kiltha with their third goal on 50 minutes to lead by 3-7 to 3-6. Both teams had chances to score but both defences were heroic. However Richie Long came up trumps with two points, one from a free and one from play, to close out the game and give us victory by the narrowest of margins. Well done to both teams for contributing to a great game, no doubt these two teams will meet again in the course of 2014.
Team: Darragh O’Connor, James Kent, Dylan Hogan, Daragh Geary, Barry Motherway, Padraig Leahy, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Adrian Galvin, Andrew Foley, Liam McCarthy, Richie Long (1-7), Kieran Daly, Cian McDonald (1-0), Olin Hennessy. Subs: Olan Broderick (1-1), Danny Cunningham, Dara Motherway, Richie Landers.
U12
Our U12’s travelled to play a practice hurling game in Dungarvan. They played very well to gain the win in very wet conditions.

U11
Killeagh-Itas v Kiltha Óg
The Killeagh-Itas Fé 11 footballers started their league campaign on Friday night with a very competitive contest with Kiltha Óg in Killeagh-Itas. Starting into a stiff wind we defended very strongly and played some great football to finish the half level with one goal and a point to Kiltha’s four points. The second half saw Killeagh-Itas play all the football and only for some great play from the visiting goalkeeper our boys would have been well ahead. This was a very robust contest with some fantastic skills on display from both sides. Our second goal midway into the second half saw the Killeagh-Itas boys enter the final minute 2 points to the good. The final kick of the game saw Killeagh-Itas disappointed as we shipped a goal against the run of play to lose the match by a single point. Each and every one of our boys played their hearts out. Our defence was very solid with Colm Treacy and George Walsh standing out while at midfield Evan Lane and Jamie Fogarty ruled the roost. Up front Paidi Mackey played a stormer with Aaron Fitzgibbon also standing out.
U7 & U8
On Saturday last, Killeagh GAA club hosted the 1st U7 & U8 monster football blitz of the year. Teams from Killeagh, St Itas, St Coleman’s, Youghal, Carrignavar and Lisgoold attended. Killeagh fielded three teams. These boys gave a great display of kicking and hand passing skills during their games. The last couple of weeks training have reaped its rewards. Refreshments were given out on the day to both adults and children. Thanks to all that helped out on the day. Training is next Sat morning at 10am. The hurling Blitz is on Sat 12/04/14.

U21 Football C’Ship
On Friday evening last Glenbower Rovers welcomed Cloyne to Killeagh for a 1/4 final clash in the U21 football championship. On a cold but calm evening Glenbower took early control of this game with our midfield and half backs and half forward lines working hard but failed to make this adequately count on the scoreboard and an eager Cloyne outfit made them pay with a good goal coming up to half time leaving the score 7pts to 1-2 at the break. Glenbower upped the tempo in the second half but again were guilty of missing some good chances in front of goal. However this didn’t upset them and some great scores from O’Brien and Cahill pushed them into a good lead and when the Cloyne full back picked up his 2nd yellow card and they were reduced to 14 players, Killeagh were able to finish out the game picking off some good scores, but credit to a young Cloyne team they made Glenbower work hard for these scores and the game ended with the home team advancing to the semi-final on a score of 14pts to 1-3. Glenbower Rovers now advance to a semi final meeting with Glenville who had a good win over a fancied Castlelyons side on Saturday evening.

Juvenile News:
Feile Football 2014
Our U14 football squad took part in the round robin series of qualifiers for this years Feile competition. Eire Og hosted both Killeagh-Itas and Sliabh Rua on Saturday March 22nd. They played Sliabh Rua in their first game at 11.00am. Although Sliabh Rua were very strong they fought hard in the first half and felt unlucky in not scoring by half-time. Then, from the throw-in for the second half, they gifted them two goals before they got into the contest. They managed to get a grip of themselves and, playing the football their mentors want them to play, they outscored their opponents in the second half. they scored two goals and two points but it was not enough to gain a win.
They played the hosts, Eire Og, in their second game at 1.00pm. They were a far superior outfit and played a cracking brand of fast and furious football. The lads changed their line-up to try and combat their opponents style but they were equal to any challenge that came their way. They won out easily in the end but Killeagh-Itas did manage to keep them scoreless for the entire second half.
Despite the two losses it was good for the club and the squad to take part in a national competition and there were plenty of positives to take home. A squad of twenty-five players turned up for the two games and everyone played a part in the games. They had good support from the parents who came to see the games. They were provided with food and drinks in comfortable surroundings by the host club Eire Og and they looked after the players and mentors very well during the visit. The players themselves played as well as they could and despite the momentous task they faced at times, they never let their heads go down and continued to fight until the end of each game. Also a big thank you to their coaches who give their time to train and teach the lads.
U16’s
Killeagh-Ita’s 3-7 St. Colman’s 1-6
As the headline says, it did exactly like it said on the tin. Our second league game of the season was played in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Saturday 22nd March. Despite breaking even in possession in the first half, at times we made some bad decisions which cost us as St. Colman’s caught us on the break more than once to leave us trailing 1-6 to 1-1 at halftime. However, we literally kicked on in the second half and made much better use of the possession we were still winning comfortably. Kevin Murphy and Cathal Deane won an amount of ball in midfield and scores by Eoin Fitzgibbon and Jamie Landers to mention a few meant that by full time we were comfortable 3-7 to 1-6 winners. St. Colman’s were kept scoreless in the second half and this was a well deserved win for the lads on home soil. Thanks to all the players for their commitment, particularly to the Under 14 boys (Adrian, Richie and Dylan) who made themselves available after having already played two Féile football games in Ovens that morning.
Team: Adrian Galvin, Luke Fogarty, Emmet Barron, Shane Kearney, Christy Coughlan, Jack O’Rourke, Fergal Smiddy, David Ogbebor, Cathal Deane, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Kevin Murphy, Keane Kelly Budds, Fionn McDonnell, Jamie Landers, Aaron Walsh. Subs: Andrew Leahy, Sean Walsh, Jamie Clifford, Dylan Hogan, Richie Long.
U10 footballers begin their 2014 season in Rostellan
The Rebel Óg U10 Monster Blitz season began last Saturday with Gaelic Football in idyllic Aghada. It was, as normal, a smoothly run event where we had a great turn out of 22 players. Two evenly split teams were fielded with our teams playing three games each against Aghada, Cobh (2 teams), Youghal (2 teams) and Glanmire. The overall results package included 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats. The base skill level shown by Killeagh was quite high as was in evidence in previous training sessions but the most positive aspect with this group of players is their willingness to learn the skills of the game and put them into practise every time they play. The teams on Saturday were:
Team 1: Daniel Walsh, Conor Meade, Rory Motherway, Tommy Morrison, Danny Fitzgerald, Darragh O’Brien, Pierce Geary, Eoin Kelly, Sean O’ Riordan, Jack O’Connor, Ruairi Mackey, Diarmuid Buckley.
Team 2: Ben Budds, Callum Martin Whyte, Ben Fogarty, David Buckley, Fergal Danaher, Ciaran Brennan, Dylan McCarthy, Colm Leahy, Daniel Griffin, Fergal Danaher.
U7 & U8
Killeagh Ita’s under 7 and 8 boys have been back training for hurling and football since 15th February last and are all working very hard on their skills in preparation for their first monster blitz of the year.
We started off with training in the ball alley for the first three weeks but we have taken to the pitch for the last few weeks and braved the elements.
All players should be at the pitch by 10.00 am ready for action. We expect to field three teams and we are really looking forward to the Monster Blitz.
U12
Killeagh-Itas 6-13 St Vincent’s 0-8
Our U12 opened their league campaign in great style last Saturday afternoon. Playing with the wind in the first half, our forwards were in super form scoring 4 goals and 11 points. Our backs held strong holding St Vincent’s scoreless in the first half. In the second half the lads played a steady game scoring 2-2 and were well in control only allowing St Vincent’s 8 points. Well done lads

Playing with the wind in the second half, our lads increased the pressure on their opponents but could not get the breaks to put scores on the board.

Well done to all involved in a good overall performance and also a big thanks to all the parents who attended the game and gave great support to the players.
