Registration Day

Registration Day Kick Starts 2016 Campaign

The rain fell, the rugby kept some stuck to the couch, yet the moms and dads and boys and girls came to our Annual Registration Day on Sunday last February 7th. DJ Dave kept the younger folk occupied with music and games downstairs in the halla – in between the games of hurling, soccer and rugby – while upstairs the tea, healthy food (and the odd biscuit) and chat were plentiful as the older generations registered their offspring and themselves for the season ahead. Presents of sliotars and gumshields sent the 12 year olds and under home happy, while new and returning parents had the opportunity to catch up with neighbours, make new acquaintances, and dream of days when the rain might stop falling! One of these days! Thank you to all those who came out to register, and for those who didn’t manage to make it yet, please call to Ursula in the coming days to make sure your boys are fully compliant before the new season commences.

 

Congratulations!

To Sheila Spillane, Killeagh Camogie President, who was honoured with the Evening Echo Hall of Fame Award for 2015 during the week. For a lifetime of unselfish service to Killeagh and Cork camogie, this award is fully merited. Well done Sheila!

To Killeagh Scór Competitors who participated in the Imokilly Scór Finals in Lisgoold on the last day of January. Pauline Meade and Carol Keniry both sang in the Solo Singing competition, with Carol garnering the runner-up spot. Eddie Leahy regaled the audience with his recollection of the epic that was the Tipperary v Cork 1984 Munster Final, and also garnered a runner-up duais. It was our ballad group who hit the headlines on the night, as Pauline, Mary, Teresa, Ann and Jacinta took the honours, singing “Trasna na dTonnta” and “Molly Malone”. This win qualifies them for the County Final, and perhaps a chance to reprise the success of the Killeagh 1992 Ballad Group of Mary, Muriel, Maureen and Peg who won East Cork, County and Munster Finals and qualified for the All-Ireland Final in Clones. Best wishes ladies!

Killeagh-Ita’s;

Happy New Year

2015 was the year Killeagh senior hurlers were relegated and then promoted again without another ball being struck. The year ended with us being almost washed away, so good riddance to that! Here’s hoping 2016 will bring health and happiness to all our club members and supporters, and hopefully some success on the pitches of Cork will bring cheers to our players, mentors and followers.

A Good ‘Neighbour’ Gone

James ‘Neighbour’ Foley’s passing on December 30th was greeted with sadness throughout the parish of Killeagh. A true ‘character’, James was very involved in GAA activities throughout his life, spending many hours at the pitch encouraging teams from the sideline, both officially as selector and unofficially as one of our most dedicated supporters. In recent times, James’ visits to the pitch were more restricted due to his failing health, yet he maintained an unquenchable passion for all things GAA. His involvement as selector with the 1995 County Junior Champions was probably his proudest sporting achievement. Killeagh GAA offers its sincere sympathy to James’ wife Anne and his daughters Marie, Geraldine, Annette, Ellen and Kathleen and their families on their sad loss. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

 

Weather Wins the Poc Fada

There was only one winner of this year’s Poc Fada in Killeagh, and that, unfortunately, was the inclement weather. St. Stephen’s Day was a washout with roads being waterlogged and the torrential rain keeping everyone indoors. Rescheduling to New Year’s Day was considered the best option, but in the intervening six days the rain fell and fell and fell, leaving the roads in even worse condition, forcing the cancellation of this year’s event. Apologies to everyone who had been looking forward to the annual social gathering, especially our younger players. Mind you, a few hardy souls braved the roads and the elements to find themselves a suitable hostelry where the social gathering still went ahead, for an indeterminate number of hours!

 

Quiz Beats The Weather – Only Just!

We did have winners in our Annual Fundraising Table Quiz for Killeagh-Ita’s, which went ahead in The Old Thatch on Tuesday evening last in the teeth of a storm of biblical proportions. The River Dissour lashed against the bridge in Killeagh, cascading in torrents down from Glenbower, flooding the Thatch garden and many fields and roads along its path, especially around Fanisk, on its unstoppable drive to the sea. Given the truly horrendous conditions, to have 22 teams turn up to try their luck with quizmaster Ted O’Brien’s challenging, funny and sometimes quirky questions was remarkable. Many thanks to all those who came out on such a night and congratulations to our winners listed below. We would like to thank all those who sponsored prizes, in particular to Tim O’Connell, Physiotherapist, Midleton who sponsored first prize. We’re planning for December 2016 already!

1st Place: Kitty O’Sullivan, Tommy Roche, Declan Hennessy and Eddie Leahy

2nd Place: Kieran Scully, David Barry, Len O’Regan and Tom Ashman

3rd Place: Robin Buckley, Paul Delaney, Matt and Majella Hurley

Golf Society:
Captain 2015: Trish Landers President 2015: Kieran Scully

The final outing for the society had to be re-fixed due to recent poor weather but thankfully it took place on Saturday December 19th at West Waterford Golf Club. The Christmas scramble is a fun outing and is a great way for beginners to get involved in the society and it was very well supported. There was a great buzz in the clubhouse beforehand, mainly, due to the complimentary ‘Hot Toddies’ provided by Austin Spratt and his staff. It is the twenty third year to hold the Christmas Scramble at the Dungarvan venue and it is of great benefit to both parties. The course was in great condition despite all the recent rain and it is a credit to Austin and his staff that the course is so well presented for all visitors. Ray Rochford combined players to balance out teams and level out the competition. The winners on an impressive 56 were Ger Ahern, Haulie Collins and Adrian Galvin, second place on 57 were Ger Fitzgibbon, Brendan Galvin and Eoin Fitzgibbon, third place also on 57 were

Tim McCarthy, Cathal Deane and Ruardhi McSweeney. There was a prize for everyone who took part on the day which was well received. While presenting the prizes, our Vice-Captain, Mr Tim Crotty thanked all those who turned up to play in this end-of-season ‘Fun Scramble’ and looked forward to returning to West Waterford for Christmas Scramble number 24 next year, he thanked Austin and the hard working staff at West Waterford for their hospitality throughout the day and for presenting a fabulous course on which to play. He praised Dominic and Maurette Fogarty for once again sponsoring the outing and encouraged all to continue to support all our sponsors whenever we can. Also singled out for special mention was Bus Driver for the day, Haulie Collins who provided a very valuable courier service to ensure maximum enjoyment for those who availed of the service. He wished everyone a happy Christmas and thanked them once again for supporting the society by playing in the outing.
