When We All Went To The Dogs

The souvenir programme will be a collector’s item in years to come (believe me!), while the abating of the afternoon’s wild weather didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the large Killeagh community and its add-ons who converged on Curraheen Park in their hundreds on Saturday evening last. Some of us were making our first visit to the plush venue which is much more than just a greyhound stadium, while others were more seasoned and familiar with its geography. We saw 11 exciting races, mingled with family and friends, while many were well fed and watered on the premises also. Those who followed the Burgess franchise ended up in the black in monetary terms after JJ and Sheila’s pair – Burgess Four and Burgess Rumble – both led at the finish in their respective races. (Thanks to Chairman Kieran, many benefitted from the programme nap. A new career in taking on the bookies, Kieran?). All in all, a great night saw everyone go home content in the knowledge that the purpose of the venture – to raise enough funds to get rid of those ever-increasing (in size and number) potholes in our driveway in Páirc Uí Chinnéide – had been fulfilled.
What happens now? We go to tender in the next few weeks to seek a suitable partner to undertake this big task of completing our driveway, and we hope to have the work completed sometime during the summer of 2015. So enjoy avoiding (or perhaps not!) those big craters for the next few weeks because hopefully by the next winter they will be a distant memory (unlike that programme!) A huge thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to make this fundraiser the success it was – it was a mammoth effort from our whole community, not just the GAA ‘die-hards’ but many others also. Finally, for the record, those much sought-after iPhones went to Liam Burns from Inch and to John Doyle (son of the famous Holycross corner-back eight-All-Ireland winner), while the All-Ireland tickets went to Padraig and Donncha Ahern from Ladysbridge.

Killeagh 3-04 Bride Rovers 1-03
Our senior hurlers commenced their Red FM SHL season with a good win over Bride Rovers. The game was played in Killeagh and unfortunately the elements did not lend themselves to an attractive game. The players on both sides deserve great praise for their performance in such difficult weather and the supporters for both teams must also be commended for their attendance. Both teams started lively but it took a while for the first score which was a goal for Bride Rovers. Killeagh came straight back at Rovers from the puck-out and were rewarded with a fine goal from current Cork player, Andy Walsh from a rather difficult angle. Killeagh capitalised from good team pressure and woeful shooting by their opponents and were further rewarded with a second goal from Dan Landers. Dan also pitched in with a point and was joined on the scoreboard by Dinny Walsh and Sean Long who scored a point each. Following sustained pressure by Killeagh Sean Long finished great Killeagh play with a superbly taken goal from an almost impossible angle. The teams went in at half time with Killeagh ahead on a score of 3-03 to 1-00. As the wind got worse for the second half it was proving difficult for either team to turn any meaningful attack into scores. Killeagh managed only one point in the second half while Bride Rovers fared a little better with just three points. Still despite the low score, a win is a win and it was a good start to the league for the players and management. The players did all they were asked and each one contributed to a well deserved opening win.
Team: B Rochford, A Keniry, P O’Brien, B Keniry, D Cahill, B Barry, K Lane, A Walsh, S Treacy, E Keniry, D Walsh, S Smiddy, D Cahill, S Long, D Landers. Subs Used: C Fogarty, M Fitzgerald, P O’Neill, B Delaney.

Ray presented the Margaret Rochford trophy to Shane and Society Captain Trish Treacy presented the Tom Fitzgibbon trophy to Luke. Ray congratulated both players on two great scorecards for the day. He thanked everybody for taking part in the outing and gave special mention to those who travelled long distances to play on the day. He praised and thanked Mr. Austin Spratt and all the staff at West Waterford Golf Club in helping with the outing and also for the fantastic course and facilities.

Minors blown off course in Pilmore
Killeagh-Ita’s 1-2, Mayfield 1-4, Eastern A MFL
Our minor footballers began their league campaign for 2015 in windswept Pilmore last Sunday morning, with reiteoir John Kirby in charge. We were quite understrength due to injuries and hurling commitments elsewhere, but bainisteoir Colm Crowley was pleased with the effort from his young squad (only five players on the age). The swirling wind spoilt the game from a scoring point of view, although both teams commendably tried to play good football. Scores were difficult to secure, with Andrew Leahy getting our only score in the first half as Mayfield led by 2 points to 1 at the break. Kenneth Cantillon was in excellent form at right-half back, while Darren Cusack and Padraig Delaney worked hard around the middle. Aaron Walsh converted a penalty early in the second half and this was followed by a point from Padraig Delaney’s free in the 42nd minute to give us a three point lead – 1-2 to 0-2. However, the dreaded black card then crippled us for the second week in a row (Under 16 last week!) as we again lost our full-back and had to re-arrange our team as a result. An opportunist goal from Mayfield and a couple of late points gave them the win. Next up for our team is a trip to our neighbours Youghal in two weeks’ time.
Team: Darragh O’Brien, Jamie Landers, Jack O’Rourke, Shane Kearney, Kenneth Cantillon, Emmet Barron, Christy Coughlan, David Ogbebor, Darren Cusack, Aaron Walsh, Padraig Delaney, Keane Budds, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Andrew Leahy, Corey Broderick, Fergal Smiddy.

Cork SHL: Killeagh v Bride Rovers in Killeagh on March 1st at 12.00pm
EC JFL Div 2: Glenbower Rovers 0-08 Aghada 2-16 played in Killeagh on Mon Feb 16th at 7.45pm
EC U21 C’ship : Glenbower Rovers 1-08 Fr O’Neills 0-08 played in Youghal on Sat Feb 21st at 8.15pm
Our U21 football team made a winning start to the year for our club when they won their 1/4 final match against a very fancied Fr O’Neills outfit on Saturday evening under lights in Youghal. We took this game by the scruff of the neck from the star, with Mathew Murphy knocking over an early free followed with a great score from play. Shane Smiddy showed his natural ability with two more well taken points from play as the Glenbower outfits dominance began to show on the score board. With our backs working tirelessly to keep the opposition forwards under raps, where Darragh Cahill and Ciaran O’ Brien showed some great leadership and our midfield and half forwards were full of movement and running and our constant pressure let to two more Shane Smiddy points from frees and we finished the half with a superbly worked point from Jack O’Rourke, leaving the half time score Glenbower rovers 7pts to Fr O’ Neills 3.
As expected Fr. O’ Neills upped their work rate in the second half and we found it difficult to get the ball into the oppositions half of the pitch but when we did we were a threat and managed to add to our tally with a pointed free from Shane Scully and when David Cahill launched a high ball into the square half time substitute Dan Landers rose highest and won the ball and when he was going past his man he was pulled to the ground and Shane was as cool as ice when he converted the resulting penalty. After this Fr. O’Neills began to dominate possession but superb defending help us to finish the game on a winning score of 1-8 to 0-8. This was a great victory made out of great team work and attitude by the team, we now are now back in an east cork semi final where we meet a strong Castlelyons side.

U16s Get Stuck In The Mud In Glenville
Glenville 3-6, Killeagh-Ita’s 1-2
Our Under 16 footballers began their league campaign for 2015 in the less than salubrious surroundings of Fouhy Park, Glenville on Saturday last. The pitch was, unfortunately, not conducive to playing any sport with a ball – if the slope had been a bit steeper from the far corner maybe those speed skaters that were in Stormont could have tried their luck! Our young team, with only 5 Under 16s, acquitted themselves very well in the first half, with Keane Budds opening the scoring and our defenders, especially Dylan Hogan at full-back and Shane Kearney and Padraig Leahy in the half-back line, playing excellent football in the testing conditions. Sean Walsh and Sean Broderick worked tirelessly in midfield and we were rewarded when Keane finished to the net on 22 minutes to leave us trailing by 1-2 to 1-1. Glenville added two more points before half-time while we failed to convert our opportunities. Unfortunately we lost our full-back to a ‘cárta dubh’ just before half-time and this upset the balance of our team. Again after half-time we failed to convert further chances and Glenville eventually breached our defence with two goals in the 42nd and 48th minutes. Our defenders continued their stubborn resistance and Olin Hennessy made some excellent saves in goal. Although we could not now win the game our team worked to the end and had a goal by Barry Motherway disallowed as the referee had blown for a penalty. Unfortunately our penalty taker Richie was badly impeded by the underfoot conditions and was unable to place his kick with his usual accuracy and the Glenville keeper made a fine save, and the rebound was kicked wide, which was the final act of an entertaining game. Well done boys on a game performance which pleased our coaches Sean and Brian.
Team: Olin Hennessy, Darragh Geary, Dylan Hogan, James Kent, Barry Motherway, Shane Kearney, Padraig Leahy, Sean Walsh, Sean Broderick, Richie Long, Keane Budds (1-2), Adrian Galvin, Andrew Foley, Jamie Clifford, Jack Wyse, Kieran Daly, Cian McDonald.

U14 Hurling Challenge Bride Rovers 1-8, Killeagh-Ita’s 0-10
Our Under 14 hurlers had their second game of 2015 against a strong Bride Rovers outfit on Sunday morning in Rathcormac. This was a very good game of hurling given the testing ground conditions. Ben O’Connor and Olan Broderick combined well to get some lovely scores from play in the first quarter, but Bride Rovers then scored a lucky goal somewhat against the run of play. We hurled well from the back with Paul Delaney, Danny Cunningham and Richie Landers clearing loads of ball down the wings. Cathal Fitzgibbon and Dara Motherway scored a point each before half-time to give us a 0-6 to 1-2 lead at half time. The second half saw scores harder to come by, although Oisin McCarthy scored a fine point to add to his football scores from last weekend. Bride Rovers hit some fine long-distance points and edged ahead and although Ryan McCarthy scored the final point of the game, we were behind by one at the final whistle. A useful workout on a day not best suited to free-flowing hurling.
Team: Robbie Treacy, Paul Delaney, Cian McDonald, George Sinclair, Danny Cunningham, Ryan McCarthy, Richie Landers, Ben O’Connor, Dara Motherway, Cathal Fitzgibbon, David Kelly, Olan Broderick, Daniel Doherty, Daniel Lucey, Darragh O’Connor, Oisin McCarthy, Owen Cosgrove, Ciaran Leahy, Aaron O’Connell, Tommy Noonan.

U14 Football
Our U14 footballers had a challenge game against Midleton on Saturday last, Feb 14th in Midleton. Playing a team from a higher grade our lads dug in from the first to the final whistle to give a superb display and really made the home team stand up and take note. After only a couple of training sessions under new coaches the lads took the game to Midleton from the start and for long periods of each half they were the dominant team. Playing to the rules of ‘one hop, one solo’ they showed that they are more than capable of putting in a match-winning performance and holding their own with any team. They worked very well together as a team unit and there were great individual performances also throughout all areas of the field. Their coaches were absolutely delighted with both the attitude and the way they performed on the field of play. Well done to the Midleton boys for a very sporting game and to the Midleton mentors and referee also. Thanks to all the parents who brought our boys to the game and gave very valuable encouragement from the line. Squad: Robbie Treacy, Owen Cosgrove, Cian McDonald(Capt.), Daniel Lucey, Danny Cunningham, Ryan McCarthy, George Sinclair, David Kelly, Oisin McCarthy, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Richie Landers, Olan Broderick, Paul Delaney, Dara Motherway, Dara O’Connor, Aaron O’Connell, Ciaran O’Rourke, Ciaran Leahy, Brian Murphy,
UNDER 16 FOOTBALL
Youghal 1-10, Killeagh-Ita’s 1-7
It’s never a ‘friendly’ when you play your nearest neighbours and rivals, but the challenge match between Youghal and Killeagh-Ita’s Under 16 footballers in Magner’s Hill on Friday evening last was a beneficial exercise for both teams, one week ahead of their opening league games next weekend. Short three of our squad, our boys had a very impressive first 15 minutes but gradually Youghal came more into the game and while we held a one point lead at half time, Youghal outscored us in the second half to finish ahead by 1-10 to 1-7. Most impressive in that first half were Jamie Landers at centre back and the half-forwrad line of Richie Long, Sean Walsh and Padraig Leahy. Sean kicked the first three points, two from play, while Richie weighed in with a goal and a point, and Shane Kearney also kicked a fine point, breaking forward from midfield. In the second half Dylan Hogan at full-back manned the defence well, while Olin Hennessy in goals made one great save and kicked out well. Kieran Daly kicked a point while Sean Broderick worked hard at midfield all night. Many positives, and while this Eastern A League looks to be challenging with 10 games, our boys will give it their all. Best of luck in the first game of the season away to Glenville next Saturday February 21st.
Team: Jamie Clifford, Adrian Galvin, Dylan Hogan, James Kent, Barry Motherway, Jamie Landers, Darragh Geary, Sean Broderick, Shane Kearney (0-1), Richie Long (1-2), Sean Walsh (0-3), Padraig Leahy, Fionn McDonnell, Olin Hennessy, Kieran Daly (0-1), Andrew Foley.

This is going to be a huge undertaking for the club and its members and all proceeds from the race night have been ring-fenced for use in the completion of the road from our entrance gates up to our club premises. While great progress has been made over the years in improving and expanding our club facilities, sadly the road continues to be a blot on the overall development.

REGISTRATION DAY DRAWS THE CROWDS
On Sunday last Páirc Uí Chinnéide GAA complex was rocking from 3.00 to 5.00 p.m., with our Annual Registration Day Juvenile Party and Disco. Tea, coffee and juice was flowing for young and old (nothing stronger) while we concluded with a presentation of gumshields and sliotars to all our young players. The Club Shop did a roaring trade while the SWAP SHOP was a hit for many who got rid of unwanted equipment and/or got something to take away. Paudie Mackey was the lucky boy whose name was pulled out of the hat at the end of the day and thus went home with a brand new Club Hoodie. With almost 200 boys on our register now from Under 6 to Under 18, we’ve lots to look forward to in 2015. This was a good starting point!

UNDER 14s BEGIN WITH A WIN
Our Under 14 hurlers had their first game of 2015 at home to Carrigtwohill on Saturday afternoon in Páirc Uí Chinnéide and began with a convincing win. Darragh O’Connor, Ben O’Connor, Owen Cosgrove, Olan Broderick, Ryan McCarthy and Daniel Doherty raised green flags, while Robert Sinclair and Richie Landers mopped up loads of ball on either wing as they formed an impressive line with Ryan in the centre. Dara Motherway impressed in goals in the first half and with two points from wing forward in the second, while all 23 players got game time as the new management trio of Fong, Padraig and Ger ‘emptied the bench’. Football takes centre stage for the next few weeks but with hurling championship only 3 months away the hurling will get plenty of time too. Well done boys!
Team: Dara Motherway, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Richie Landers, Ryan McCarthy, Robert Sinclair, Owen Cosgrove, Ben O’Connor, Tommy Noonan, Olan Broderick, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Aaron O’Connell, David Kelly, Darragh O’Connor. Subs: Colin Desmond, Robbie Treacy, Ciaran O’Rourke, Ben Jennings, Padraig Landers, Daniel Doherty, Brian Murphy and Christian Coughlan.

Training
Training for all players continues this week as per text notifications. If, for any reason, a player cannot turn up for a training session it is very important to let your trainer know that you will be absent.

“ON THE ONE ROAD” – 4 Weeks Left To Curraheen Park Fundraiser
There are now just four weeks to go to our fundraising night in Curraheen Park on Saturday night, February 28th 2015. This is going to be a huge undertaking for the club and its members and all proceeds from the race night have been ring-fenced for use in the completion of the road from our entrance gates up to our club premises. While great progress has been made over the years in improving and expanding our club facilities, sadly the road continues to be a blot on the overall development. As this race night is going to be a one-off everybody is being asked to shoulder a piece of the load and help out in any way with the task in hand. Tickets for the night are priced at a modest €10 for entry for one adult to a night of fun-filled greyhound racing. A steering committee for this fundraiser chaired by JJ Fennelly are currently issuing tickets and patrons can contact JJ on 0866483738, Kieran Scully on 0858037343, Sean Treacy on 0863923131, or Padraig McGrath on 0878575678 to purchase tickets or for further information about other activities on the night. Incidentally, those purchasing a ticket for the night will be automatically entered into a draw for some really valuable prizes like iPhones and All-Ireland Final Tickets so you can still be a winner if, for any reason, you cannot attend the racing. ‘Let’s Go Greyhound Racing’

DINNER DANCE BLOWS AWAY THE JANUARY BLUES
Garryvoe Hotel was the venue for the Killeagh GAA Annual Dinner Dance on Saturday January 24th. A good crowd saw the average age reduced substantially on last year’s figure by virtue of the County success of Killeagh-Ita’s Under 21 hurlers, who were present in great numbers and form to receive their medals from our own clubmate, Tracey Kennedy, Leas-Chathaoirleach, Coiste Chontae Chorcaí. Tracey said she was honoured to present County medals to her own club, and expressed the wish that she would be able to repeat the honour on future occasions! Richard Fitzgerald, Cathaoirleach, Roinn Oirthir Chorcaí was also in attendance to present medals to the victorious Division 3 Hurling Team. Our own Cathaoirleach Kieran Scully managed proceedings with aplomb, while the ‘apres-match’ music was provided by ‘Blank Canvas’ and DJ David O’Keeffe. Congratulations also to the Killeagh Camogie stars who represented Cork in 2014 at various levels and whose achievements were marked with presentations and commendations from Mary Collins. Well done to our organisers Sean Treacy and Ursula Coleman for ensuring that this fine tradition of marking our achievements continues.

WELL DONE ANDY!
Andy Walsh has played a number of games with the Cork senior hurlers in the past month and his graph continues to rise as he attempts to cement a place in JBM and Mark’s league panel. With two points from play from midfield in both the semi-final and final of the Waterford Crystal Tournament against top-quality opponents, he has certainly put his hand up to be noticed. Maith thú, Andy.

Juvenile Meeting This Week

Unfortunately Storm Rachel caused the late cancellation of our planned Juvenile Meeting on Wednesday evening last, so we have rescheduled for this week on Thursday 22nd @ 8.30 p.m. in Killeagh GAA Clubhouse. This meeting, like all our Juvenile meetings, is open to all parents of juvenile players and club members. Please come along where you will get details on our plans for 2015 – on and off the pitch, and you can make your contribution too.

Scór na nÓg Tráth na gCeist
On Friday night last thirteen teams from around Cork County came to the Eire Og clubhouse in Ovens to take part in the County Final of the Scór na nÓg Tráth na gCeist (Question Time). There were questions on camogie, ladies football, hurling, football, Irish history and geography, world history and geography, and current affairs. 80 questions later, and the Killeagh team had finished a creditable fourth, with 69 correct answers. Just ahead of them in third were Ballyhooly, while Tadhg MacCárthaighs and Aghabullogue were level on 73 and required a tie-break to decide who would represent Cork in the All-Ireland Final. Indeed, it took a further 13 questions (like extra time, penalties and then sudden-death) before the Aghabullogue boys took the honours. Well done to the Killeagh team – Fionn, Barry, Dara and Cathal – who represented their club very well.
