EC JAHC Bride Rvrs v Killeagh before w/e 19/7/15 venue, date and time tbc

Killeagh 4-13 Carrigtwohill 0-15

Cloyne was the venue for this East Cork Oil East Cork JAHC second round game and it couldn’t have started better for Killeagh as Johnny O’Connor picked the ball out of the sky 21 meters out, jinked to the right shaking off three Carrigtwohill defenders before sending the ball low and hard into the Carrigtwohill net.

A body blow for Carrig, but a wonderful response with three scores, a long distance point from Stephen O’Flynn who then doubled his account on the sixth minute with another placed ball effort and the sides were level on the eighth minute when Martin McConville struck a point from play. As the first half unfolded it was obvious to see that the Killeagh hurlers were quicker to the ball and taking their chances better and after three Killeagh points without reply, Killeagh then struck their second goal through Andrew Leahy and led by five points at the end of the first quarter. The sides exchanged four further points apiece before the short whistle, but it was Killeagh who definitely dominated the first half.

The pattern continued throughout the second half and immediately O’Connor and Matthew Murphy tagged on a further two points to give Killeagh a seven point lead. Carrigtwohill replied through Stephen O’Flynn with a good free, but immediately Killeagh had two unanswered point from Killian Tracy and two fine ‘65’s. The remainder of the game ran point for point, but Killeagh added two further goals through Ger Collins and a second green flag for Johnny O’Connor. Killeagh progress and Carrigtwohill bow out of the 2015 championship and it would be impossible to argue with the result as the Killeagh outfit dominated from start to finish.[DK]

Scorers: J O’Connor 2-1, A Leahy 1-3, K Tracy 0-6 (2 ‘65’) M Murphy 0-4, G Collins 1-0, J Fitzgerald 0-1.

Team: C Walsh; S Murphy, C Fogarty, J O’Rourke; B Keniry, P Carroll, C Coughlan; B Delaney, J O’Connor; J Rohan, J Fitzgerald, M Murphy; A Leahy, G Collins, K Treacy.

League clash with Duhallow

Killeagh/Ita’s Minors welcomed Duhallow to Pairc Ui Chinnede to play a hurling league fixture on Monday 29th June. It was a perfect evening for hurling and Duhallow were the first to register a score with a point from a free. Andy was our first scorer with a great point from play. Killeagh/Ita’s dominated in the first half and when the whistle blew for the half-time break we had a very comfortable lead on a score line of 1-13 to 0-4. When play resumed Killeagh/Ita’s had made numerous personnel and positional changes. Dan opened the scoring in the second half when he raised the white flag. Duhallow scored 2-9 in the second half but it wasn’t enough to loosen the stranglehold that our minors had on the game. Sam Desmond scored two wonderful goals in the second half. With the kettle boiled the ref called time and we all adjourned to the meeting room for refreshments. It was a good game for the minors who are preparing for their next championship game against Na Piarsaigh (date and venue to be decided)

Under 16s get back on the road with win in Cobh
The Junior Cert is finally over and players and mentors alike celebrate as the punctuated Under 16 hurling season is resumed once again. Our team travelled to Cobh to play their third league game of this year’s campaign and came away with another two points courtesy of a 7-11 to 2-14 victory. This was a strange game as our boys went for the jugular early on a la Kilkenny, and led by the incomprehensible score-line of 6-2 to 0-3 after just fifteen minutes, with four of those goals coming in four crazy minutes leading up the quarter hour. Richie Long, Sean Walsh, Keane Budds, Padraig Leahy and Jamie Clifford were the goal scorers, with Richie adding another just before half time with a cheeky Joe-Deane type flick to a long delivery. Despite this goal fest, Cobh were playing a very good brand of hurling also, and scoring some fine points. They raised a green flag from a goalmouth scramble after Fionn McDonnell had initially saved a 1:1 penalty. It left the score at half-time 7-4 to 1-9, with the job not yet complete. The lead and the aid of the wind was an advantage and an opportunity for management to make a few changes, with Richie Landers, Cian McDonald, Jack Wyse, James Kent and Andrew Foley all joining the fray in the second half. Cobh continued to whittle away at our lead during the first half of the second half, and added a second goal to but eventually our point scoring rate improved and we added seven more before PJ Ahern blew the final whistle. Next up is a St. Catherine’s league game at home on Monday 29th, followed by the championship first round against Castlelyons on Sunday July 5th.
Team: Fionn McDonnell, Darragh Geary, Dylan Hogan, Kieran Daly, Barry Motherway, Jamie Landers, Shane Kearney, Keane Kelly Budds, Daniel Hickey, Padraig Leahy, Sean Walsh, Richie Long, Adrian Galvin, Jamie Clifford, Olin Hennessy, Richie Landers, Cian McDonald, Jack Wyse, James Kent, Andrew Foley, Liam McCarthy, Olan Broderick.

U13 Footballers
On Monday 15th June our young footballers travelled to Carrigtwohill to play them at home. It was a perfect evening for football with the sun shining and the grounds in excellent condition. Carrigtwohill got off to a dream start when we conceded a very early goal from the throw-in. Killeagh/Ita’s however were very quick to respond and registered 1-6 before Carrigtwohill tacked on 2 points. Ciaran O Rourke and Christian Coughlan were adamant that Killeagh/Ita’s were going into half-time having scored last and both raised the green flag before the ref called time on the first half. Killeagh/Ita’s had scored 3-7 to Carrigtwohill’s 1-2 . Killeagh/Ita’s continued to dominate in the second half. It was a very impressive performance from each of our 16 players and it is fair to say that Killeagh/Ita’s were on top from our goalie to our corner forwards. Killeagh/Ita’s outscored Carrigtwohill 4-6 to 2-4 in the second half, with Ben scoring a hat-trick and Darragh Buckely skillfully beating the Carrig goalie to raise the green flag. Darragh Coleman in goal made some fantastic saves and stopped a superbly taken penalty only to be narrowly beaten by the rebound. Carrigtwohill found it very difficult to mark Ben and he registered a personal tally of 4-2. Final score on the night was 7-13 to 4-6
The boys are in action again on Tuesday night 23rd June at home in Pairc Ui Chinneide at 7.30 against Kilta Og.
Team: D Coleman, R Farquhar, R Treacy 0-1, B Jennings, P Landers, D Collins, P Kent, B O Connor 4-2, R Bernard, C Couglan 1-5, C Leahy 0-2 , T McCarthy, C O Rourke 1-3, D Buckley 1-0. Sub: A Fitzgibbon
Parish Sports
On Monday evening, June 8th, the parish sports were held at Pairc Ui Chinneide. It was a beautiful evening and the grounds were filled with families and friends of all the primary school competitors. Such a crowd turned up that every available space at our grounds was used up for parking and many people had to park in the village and walk to the pitch. This year it was the turn of Kyle NS to organise the games and, in keeping with previous years, it was very well orchestrated from start to finish and went off without a hitch. Many thanks to the organisers, to all the competitors, to all the marshals and volunteers and especially to all the community who enjoyed the facilities and helped with the tidy-up at the conclusion of the sports.[KS]

Killeagh-Ita’s;
Our U13’s played their final league games against St.Coleman’s and Newtownshandrum in the past 10 days. We have played all our games and await other teams to play theirs. At present we are top of the table after winning six of our seven games so we wait patiently to see what will unfold and our position on the league table when all games are played.

Killeagh/Ita’s Clash with Cloyne
Going into the game we were top of the league with a game extra played so it was vitally important to secure a win or a draw at least to remain on top. There was a slight breeze other than that it was a perfect day for hurling, the scene was set for entertaining encounter and spectators were not disappointed. Ciaran O Rourke was the first to raise the white flag for Killeagh/Ita’s within the first minute of the game. St Coleman’s then notched up 7 points without reply (4 from frees). Ben scored Killeaghs/Ita’s next point with St Coleman’s quickly doing the same. Killeagh/Ita’s were awarded a free which was superbly taken by Ben resulting in a fantastic goal. The half-time whistle blew and the score board read 1-3 to 0-9.

The second half resumed and Killeagh/Ita’s were once again the first to score with Ben splitting the post. We produced a second half performance that proved to be match winning. The half-time talk must have been very motivating because it resulted in four fabulous goals being scored on a very capable St. Coleman’s goal keeping. Ciaran O Rourke produced the first goal of the second half with Christian Coughlan scoring the next. St Coleman’s not to be outdone also raised the green flag. Killeagh/Ita’s weren’t going to let St. Colemans back into the game with Evan Lane scoring a wonderful goal and Ben O Connor finishing proceedings with another goal. Killeagh/Ita’s played with great determination and discipline which resulted in a well deserved win on a full-time score of 5-5 to 1-11. This was a wonderful team preformance with each and every hurler contributing to a thrilling encounter.
Team : J Fogarty, B Jennings, P Landers, D Collins, R Treacy, G Walsh, P Kent, C Treacy, B O Connor 2-4, C Coughlan 1-0, C Leahy, R Farquhar, C O’Rourke, 1-1 D Doherty, Subs E Lane 1-0, D Coleman, D Buckley, E Brenner

Killeagh/Ita’s show Newtownshandrum no Mercy!
This was our final game before the business end of the league so it was essential for our boys to produce a good performance and secure a victory to ensure the highest position possible on the league table. Once again the U13’s did as they were asked and gave a fantastic display of hurling which gave them a very comfortable win over Newtownshandrum. The match was being played away in Newtownshandrum so it was a great opportunity to take a bus and give the boys a much deserved treat in McDonalds on the way home. Our boys scored an impressive 5-9 in the first half with Newtownshandrum scoring 2-4. The second half resumed with Donie and Johnny telling the boys to go out and enjoy the rest of the game so the second half was played in a much more relaxed manner. The final score was 6-14 to 2-9.
Team: R Bernard, B Jennings, B Murphy, R Farquhar, D Collins, R Treacy, P Landers, C Leahy 1-5, T McCarthy, C Coughlan 2-1, D Buckley, B O Connor 3-6, D Coleman 0-1, C O’Rourke 0-1, Subs C Treacy, E Brenner.

A Great Day In The Sun For O’Loughlin Kearney Blitz
Despite the commencement of the eagerly anticipated road works (surely an oxymoron!) in Páirc Ui Chinnéide, the show (and games) must go on, so excitement and fun were in plentiful supply for our annual Under 9 invitational O’Loughlin Kearney Cup tournament. This year we invited our Imokilly neighbours St. Catherine’s and Lisgoold and our Déise neighbours Abbeyside on Saturday afternoon last, June 13th. A great call, as each of the four teams contributed really well to an excellent blitz, where each team played every other team once. At the end of the six games, each team had won at least one game, each team had also lost at least one game, and the widest margin of victory in any game was just five points. In Round One, hosts Killeagh-Ita’s got off to a slow start and were overcome by St. Catherine’s by 2-1 to 0-3, while Lisgoold defeated Abbeyside by 0-3 to 0-0, with both defences playing excellently. Round Two saw the Round One winners face ache other, and in an epic battle, Lisgoold came from behind to defeat St. Catherine’s by 2-3 to 2-0, while Killeagh-Ita’s and Abbeyside shared a seven-goal thriller where our boys came out on top by 4-2 to 3-0.

So it was still all to play for in the final round. Abbeyside and St. Catherine’s battled and belted the sliotar up and down the field but once again both defences were on top and eventually Abbeyside goaled to win by 1-0 to 0-1. In the ultimately crucial game, Lisgoold and Killeagh-Ita’s gave the increasingly more excited supporters a fantastic game, where the quality of the point scoring was quite outstanding for Under 9s, with points hit on the run, from the wings, and even one sideline struck over the bar by Lisgoold. At the end of twenty pulsating minutes, our boys eventually won by 1-7 to 0-6, and this four-point swing was critical as it now came to points difference to separate these two teams who had finished the Round Robin on four points each. With a scoring difference of +5, Killeagh-Ita’s just edged out Lisgoold who finished with a scoring difference of +2. And so it was on the presentation with Mary-Ellen Kearney presenting the prestigious cup to our captain Ben Walsh and to his delighted team-mates. In truth, all four teams were winners on an excellent day when the sun chairs and the ‘lazing on the grass’ (of all ages!) contributed to the ‘feel good’ factor! Once again, mile buíochas to our three visiting teams for contributing to a great day, to the parents of our own team who contributed and distributed the many refreshments that were provided ag deireadh an lae, and to the Kearney family for their continued support of Killeagh-Ita’s. We’re looking forward to 2016 already!
Killeagh-Ita’s team: Ben Walsh, Barry Walsh, Michael Doherty, James Connon, Michael O’Donovan, Ethan O’Driscoll, Sean Meade, Colm Cowhig, Fionn Murphy, Sean Lynch.

Trip To Tipp 2015 – Great Day, Wrong Result!
Apart from the Cork Senior Hurling team’s disappointment in losing to Waterford last Sunday in Semple Stadium, the annual Killeagh-Ita’s pilgrimage to “The Home Of Hurling” proved to be a very successful day for the 42 children and 11 adults who filled Fogarty’s Bus and headed off for a fun day out. We came back with the same number, with no injuries, sickness or tears, the chips were nice, and even our jubilant Waterford supporter, Johnny Brenner, didn’t gloat too much at us disheartened Cork fans!

Juvenile Notes:
No joy for Under 14 footballers
Rebel Óg Eastern A Football Championship Killeagh-Ita’s 0-4, Inniscarra 1-6
Just a week after their hurling exit, our Under 14s turned their attention to football championship at home against Inniscarra on Friday evening last. We had played Kinsale in a league game on Monday evening and, missing five of our starting fifteen for different reasons, we had been outclassed. The fear that another hammering would be meted out to our boys on championship night was unfounded, however, as we gave a spirited display which unfortunately saw us come up just short against a talented Inniscarra side. Playing against the wind in the first half we got off to a flying start with Oisin McCarthy and Dara Motherway kicking good points in the first three minutes to give us a two point lead. Inniscarra gradually found their feet and had levelled with two frees by the eighth minute. Cúl báíre Robbie Treacy was easily our best player as he made three outstanding saves in the first half (and another in the second half) to keep us in touch, but Inniscarra added three more points to lead by 0-5 to 0-2 at half time. Unfortunately while we had some opportunities in front of goal our final kick was wayward from both play and frees and we were unable to add to our initial points. The second half saw our team continue to work hard with George and Robert Sinclair, Karl O’Toole and David Collins winning a lot of ball, while Oisin McCarthy kicked two fantastic points from distance to reduce the gap to two points 0-6 to 0-4 with just ten minutes remaining. We had a few more attacks but couldn’t add to our tally, while Inniscarra, after some wasteful shooting of their own, scored a goal on the stroke of full time to put a gloss on the scoreboard for them – 1-6 to 0-4. A battling display from our team was not good enough on a night when the loss of Richie Landers and Daniel Lucey through injury hampered our efforts at either end of the pitch.
Team: Robbie Treacy, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Cian McDonald (Captain), Christian Coughlan, George Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Danny Cunningham, Karl O’Toole, Robert Sinclair, Dara Motherway ()-1), Oisin McCarthy (0-3), David Collins, Paul Delaney, Olan Broderick, David Kelly. Subs: Owen Cosgrove, Darragh O’Connor, Brian Murphy, Olan Coleman, Remy Bernard.

Mixed week for Under 11s
Our Under 11 boys had a busy week as most of them played three games in five days. The Under 12 team (with a good share of 11s playing) had a good victory over White’s Cross on Tuesday evening and the Under 11 boys then travelled to Ballynoe on Wednesday evening and defeated St. Catherine’s in a very entertaining football game. Daniel Walsh, David Buckley, Ben Budds, Rory Motherway and Conor Meade all played well to ensure that we claimed the victory. On Saturday afternoon the rain and Kiltha Óg came to Páirc Uí Chinnéide and unfortunately our visitors had the better of the battle, winning convincingly after a very strong first half. Our boys played better after half time but still had to give second best to our neighbours who have beaten us in both codes now this year.
Panel: Ben Budds, David Buckley, Conor Meade, Danny Fitzgerald, Ciaran Brennan, Darragh O’Leary, Rory Motherway, Daniel Walsh, Ben Fogarty, Evan Lane, Dylan McCarthy, Pierse Geary, Liam Considine.

Cúl Camp is on its way
Letters are on their way to all our primary school children this week giving details about this year’s Cúl Camp which takes place in Páirc Uí Chinnéide from Monday July 13th to Friday July 17th. Please book your place now with Ursula before Monday June 22nd, and be there!

Parish Sports
A reminder that the Annual Parish Sports Night for the four primary schools (Inch, Park, Kyle and Killeagh) takes place in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Monday evening next, June 8th, from 6. 30 p.m. It promises to be a great night once again, so get there early for fun and excitement!

Under 12 Hurling League
Our under 12 hurlers continued on winning ways on Tuesday evening with a good win away to White’s Cross on a score-line of 6:11 to 1:2. Playing with the aid of the hill and the wind in the first half the Killeagh lads began well and went in at half time with a big lead. The second half was a tighter affair but the score-line was never in doubt. Jamie Fogarty contributed 1:2 from centre back while Eoin Brenner had an impressive 5 points from midfield and Conor Meade poached 3 goals from full forward. The industrious David Buttimer also impressed with a 2:2 tally. This was a good performance from an understrength Killeagh side starting with six under 11s in the team and all of them performing very well.
Killeagh: Ben Budds, Jack Flanagan, George Walsh-Wallace, Rory Motherway, David Buckley, Jamie Fogarty, Rory Lynch, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Eoin Brenner, Dale McMahon, Daniel Walsh, David Buttimer, Callum Magner, Conor Meade, Ciaran Brennan. Sub: Evan Daly

Juvenile Notes:
Heartbreak follows joy for Under 14 hurlers
Just four days after defeating Bishopstown in a thrilling quarter-final in Ballinure last Monday evening, our Under 14 hurlers bowed out at the penultimate stage in the most cruel of manners on Friday evening in Aghada. Seo é an scéal.
Monday night’s game was an amazing encounter, with both teams hurling out of their skins at different stages. Bishopstown got off to a flier with a goal after four minutes but our boys took off then and three quick goals from Olan Broderick’s free, Ben O’Connor and Dara Motherway gave us a 3-1 to 1-1 cushion after fifteen minutes. We continued to dominate with the strong wind favouring us, and Daniel Lucey’s kicked goal gave us a better cushion, although ominously Bishopstown scored the last two points of the half when it was 4-5 to 1-3 in our favour. The second half saw us maintain our advantage gap up to the 43rd minute with each side adding 1-2 (Ciaran Leahy getting a crucial goal just after half-time, but then Bishopstown took over completely and added 2-3 quickly while we struggled to get the ball up into our forward line. With two minutes left we were hanging on by just a goal when one of our rare attacks led to Dara Motherway adding a final goal to close out the game, 6-8 to 4-8. It was a thrilling game with all our backs once again doing Trojan work while Ben O’Connor, Olan Broderick and Daniel Lucey all had stormers up front.
Team: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy (0-1), Richie Landers, Owen Cosgrove, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Dara Motherway (2-0), David Kelly, Olan Broderick (1-3f), Darragh O’Connor, Daniel Lucey (1-1), Ben O’Connor (1-3). Subs: Ciaran Leahy (1-0), Oisin McCarthy, George Sinclair, Aaron O’Connell, Tommy Noonan, Christian Coughlan, Brian Murphy.
And so it was on to Rostellan on Friday evening against Na Piarsaigh. Our chief scorer Ben O’Connor was absent through illness and we felt his loss as it reduced our scoring threat. Playing with the wind in the first half we struggled to get the ball past a dominant Na Piarsaigh half back line and were reduced to scores from distance, mostly from Olan Broderick’s free taking. Daniel Lucey did repeat his goal kicking trick to give us a 1-5 to 0-3 lead after twenty minutes, but Na Piarsaigh’s Kevin Moynihan landed some spectacular frees from distance to leave us barely ahead, 1-6 to 0-7 at half time. The second half saw a real tight struggle with both teams giving their all, but with time up it looked like we would hold out by the minimum (2-9 to 0-14) thanks in the main to Ciaran Leahy’s 52nd minute goal, but then disaster, as Na Piarsaigh scored a goal in the 63rd minute to take the lead for the first time since the third minute, and with not enough time for us to respond, the victory. Cruel luck on our brave team who gave their supporters great joy and entertainment over three exciting championship games. So the championship is gone but we’ll regroup in a few weeks and with the excellent coaching from Fong, Ger and Padraig developing these boys’ skills consistently, hopefully we can return to winning ways in our remaining league games. Well done boys, and best wishes to both Na Piarsaigh and Blarney in the final next weekend. For us, it’s over to the football now with championship against Inniscarra on Friday 29th at home.
Team: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy (0-1f), Richie Landers, Owen Cosgrove, Cathal Fitzgibbon, George Sinclair, David Kelly, Olan Broderick (0-6, 0-5f), Darragh O’Connor, Daniel Lucey (0-1), Dara Motherway (0-1). Subs: Ciaran Leahy (1-0), Oisin McCarthy, Karl O’Toole, Aaron O’Connell, Tommy Noonan, Christian Coughlan, Brian Murphy.
