Minors
Killeagh/Ita’s began their Minor Hurling Championship campaign on Wednesday 22nd in Cobh against a very strong, big and physical Blackrock side. This Blackrock team won the P1 U16 county championship two years ago and are hotly tipped to be collecting the silverware at the finale of this competition, however we all know that their is never a sure thing in sport!! Killeagh/Ita’s were slow to settle into the game and it wasn’t until the second half that they played to their potential however the game had slipped beyond their grasp at that stage. Blackrock stamped their authority on the game from the outset and had 3 points on the scoreboard from play before we claimed two back. Blackrock were quick to respond with a point and a goal. Killian pointed next for us but Blackrock not to be outdone tacked on another 3 points. Dan scored two points for Killeagh/Ita’s one from play and one from a free. Blackrock were on the attack constantly and scored another goal before the ref Ted Hayes called time on the first half. Killeagh/Ita’s were trailing at the half on a score of 0-6 to 2-7. Dan scored the opening point of the second half but Blackrock were quick to score 3 points back: one from a free and 2 from play. Then disaster struck when Blackrock rose the green flag for a third and thankfully final time. With the scoreboard reading 3-10 to 0-7 and 20 minutes remaining on the clock it was safe to say that Killeagh/Ita’s were heading for the loser’s group. To give great credit to our minors they never once gave up and hurled to the final whistle and this resulted in some fantastic scoring. Both Dan and Killian scored a goal apiece. Dan was fouled as he headed for goal and was awarded a penalty which he effortlessly converted to a goal. Killian also scored a wonderful goal after being passed the sliotar from Andrew. The final score was 3-15 to 2-9. Blackrock advance to meet St. Finbarrs while we await our pairing in the losers group.[OS]
Team: D Cusack, E Barron, J O’Rourke, K Cantillon, C Coughlan, D O’Brien, K Murphy, D Ogbebor, K Treacy 1-3, K Kelly Budds, A Leahy 0-1, D Landers 1-5, S Desmond, J Mercuchev, C Deane. Subs: P Delaney for S Desmond and E Fitzgibbon for J Mercuchev.

U16
Under 16 hurlers dominate second half to overcome Youghal
This game, played on Monday evening in Youghal, was very competitive up to half time with our boys needing to be at their best to hold a 4-6 to 1-5 half-time lead. Jamie Clifford was our chief scorer, getting three goals in the first half and a fourth after half time. Our backs were however under their own pressure, but full-back Daniel Hickey marshalled the square well. The second half was more one-way traffic as we dominated in every line, with Sean Broderick putting in a huge hour’s work in midfield and Keane Budds, Sean Walsh and Richie Long leading the scoring, giving us an impressive victory in the end.[CM]
Team: Fionn McDonnell, Daragh Geary, Daniel Hickey, James Kent, Barry Motherway, Jamie Landers, Kieran Daly, Keane Budds, Sean Broderick, Richie Long, Sean Walsh, Padraig Leahy, Olin Hennessy, Jamie Clifford, Adrian Galvin, Andrew Foley, Liam McCarthy, Jack Wyse, Richie Landers.
U14
Under 14s complete a busy week with two more wins
Fé 14 Peil: Killeagh-Ita’s 3-15, Kiltha Óg 3-3
Fé 14 Iomáint: Killeagh-Ita’s 4-11, Blarney 1-11
Our Under 14 panel followed up their victory in Carrigaline on Saturday last by notching up two more victories at home in the past week – in football against neighbours Kiltha Óg on Tuesday and in hurling against Blarney on Thursday evening. The football game was only our second game in the league and while we played well in patches with some fine scores, there were times where our lack of match practice also showed. This match might come to be known as the ‘Rice Cup’ game as both sides were forced to line out without key players due to Rice Cup commitments with Midleton CBS the following day. Paul Delaney was our scorer-in-chief in the first half with three points from play, while Darragh O’Connor goaled following a nice pass from Dara Motherway. Having been well on top, we allowed Kiltha back in to the game with 1-1 without reply in the final five minutes of the half. Ag leath am bhíomar chun tosaigh 1-9 i gcoinne 1-2. The second half saw our lethargy continue for another ten minutes before a blistering three minute spell between the 40th and 42nd minute gave us an unassailable lead as we scored 2-2 without reply – fine points from Cathal Fitzgibbon and Oisin McCarthy (each scoring their second point) were followed by Darragh O’Connor’s second goal and Ben O’Connor finishing a fine move for a third. We lapsed again as Kiltha banged in two goals at the other end but finished with two points from Dara Motherway and Remy Bernard to leave us well ahead ag an deireadh.
Team: Robbie Treacy, Brian Murphy, Daniel Lucey, Owen Cosgrove, George Sinclair, Robert Sinclair, Danny Cunningham, Karl O’Toole (0-1), Oisin McCarthy (0-2), Dara Motherway (0-1), Cian McDonald (0-1), Cathal Fitzgibbon (0-2), Paul Delaney (0-4), Darragh O’Connor (2-1), David Kelly (0-2), Ben O’Connor (1-0), Christian Coughlan, David Collins, Remy Bernard (0-1).
Forty-eight hours later, we had our full squad back, some of whom were playing their fourth game in six days, as we welcomed Blarney to Páirc Uí Chinnéide for our third league game in the Premier 2 league. The legs were a bit heavy in a sluggish first-half display where our backs were more impressive than our forwards, with full-back line Paul Delaney, Danny Cunningham and Cian McDonald very busy, and our half-back line of Robert, Ryan and Richie also doing well. However, Blarney led by 1-3 to 0-4 after twenty minutes, which included a goal after just seven minutes. Nonetheless, at half time we had battled back to be level at 1-5 apiece, with sub Ben O’Connor getting a crucial goal just before half time and Daniel Lucey also very effective at full-forward. The second half saw another blistering spell, not unlike Tuesday evening’s game, which yielded 1-3 in the first four minutes, with Cathal Fitzgibbon and Dara Motherway (2) pointing and Karl O’Toole rattling the net with a goal. We then retreated and Blarney totally dominated the next fifteen minutes, outscoring us by five points to one to reduce the deficit to two points – 2-9 to 1-10. In reality, we were lucky to hold our lead as Blarney missed chances for further points and goals that could have punctured our spirits had they been converted. It wasn’t until Aaron O’Connell goaled in the final five minutes that we killed off Blarney, and a fourth goal from Ben put an unfair gloss on the final scoreline, which somewhat flattered us.[CM]
Team: Dara Motherway (0-2), Danny Cunnigham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Richie Landers, David Kelly, Oisin McCarthy, Karl O’Toole (1-0), Olan Broderick (0-5, 0-4f), Cathal Fitzgibbon (0-1), Owen Cosgrove, Daniel Lucey (0-2), Darragh O’Connor, Christian Coughlan, Ben O’Connor (2-1), Robbie Treacy, Aaron O’Connell (1-0).

Championship Countdown Continues…
Killeagh/Ita’s Minor’s proved to be an unstoppable force in their league game against Na Piarsaigh on Monday13th in Pairc Ui Chinneide. Our boys produced a display of hurling that left spectators speechless and their competitors winded! Killeagh/Ita’s and Na Piarsaigh traded a point apiece to settle the nerves however our intent was shown from the off when Dave Ogbebor rose the green flag scoring a fantastic goal after being passed the ball by Cathal within minutes of the game starting. Na Piarsaigh replied with two points but Keane and Daniel both responded in kind and split the posts with two well taken points. Na Piarsaigh scored one back but Jack Mercuchev was anxious to get his name on the score board and scored a lovely point followed closely by onother from Dan. A very well taken free by Kevin found Dan who scored a splendid goal and Killeagh/Ita’s finished the first half comfortably on a score of 2-7 to 0-5. The second half produced some outstanding scores. Andrew Leahy had a very productive second half scoring an amazing 3-2 and Cathal Deane not to be outdone scored 1-1. With the light fading and the game all but over Na Piarsaigh scored a couple of goals but when the final whistle blew Killeagh/Ita’s had a very comfortable and deserved win on 6-14 to 2-11.[OS]

Team: D Cussack, E Barron, J O Rourke, Kenneth Cantillon, C Coughlan, D O Brien, K Murphy 0-1, C Deane 1-1, K Treacy 0-1, D Landers 1-5, Keane Kelly Budds 0-1, D Ogbebor 1-2, Jack Mercuchev 0-1, S Desmond, A Leahy 3-2. Subs E Fitzgibbon – S Desmond, C Broderick -C Deane, L Fogarty – D Ogbebor, F Smiddy – K Treacy, A Walsh – D Landers.

Friday 17th saw Killeagh/Ita’s travel to Ahavine to take on our near neighbours Fr O’Neills in a thrilling league clash and a very physical encounter. This was the type of game that the boys needed in preparation for Championship on Wednesday 22nd April. We were very unlucky not to have drawn or even won this battle. With a minute or two remaining on the clock and only a point ahead Fr O Neills were awarded a penalty. Declan Dalton had slitor in hand and was goalward bound however Jack O Rourke was equally intent in him not getting there. The ref blew and everyone one watched anxiously, free out for steps and barging or free in for holding? Penalty to Fr O Neills and brillantly taken giving Darren no chance of stopping it. Killeagh Ita’s were the first to score when Dan converted a 65, this was his first score of a personal tally of an impressive 1-11. (I wonder was it anything to do with turning 18, wishing you a very happy birthday Dan!) We had only 4 contributors to the score board against Fr O’Neills in comparison to the game against Na Piarsaigh earlier in the week when 8 of our players found range, this is an indication of how tough it was on the playing field. It was a very fast paced game and every puc of the ball was a battle. The battle on the night was won by Fr O’Neills however we fought hard and our game is all the better for it. Full-time score Killeagh/Ita’s 1-16 – Fr O’Neills 1-21[OS]

Team: D Cussack, K Cantillon, J O Rourke, E Barron, D O’ Brien, K Murphy, C Deane,K Treacy, 0-2 K Kelly Budds 0-1, D Landers 1-11, D Ogbebor, J Mercuchev, S Desmond, A Leahy 0-2. Subs J Landers – C Deane.
Killeagh/Ita’s will be meeting Blackrock in Cobh on Wednesday 22nd April. This is our opening match of the 2015 Carrigaline Court Hotel Premier 1 U18 Hurling Championship and throw-in is timed for 7.15pm. The team and mentors would appreciate your support on the night so come along and get behind our boys.[OS]
U14
Fé 14 Iomáint Carraig Ui Leighin 3-1, Cilliath-Íde 2-8
A workmanlike performance produced a hard-earned victory for our Under 14 boys in Carrigaline last Saturday afternoon. The game was played on Carrigaline’s beautiful newly-opened pitch and both teams contributed to a fine contest where scores were scarce. Carrigaline got their opening goal after eight minutes while Olan Broderick opened our account with a pointed free soon after. A fine point from Owen Cosgrove and a third from Ben O’Connor levelled the tie before Carrigaline struck for their second goal. However, the remainder of the first half saw our forwards get their shots on target with Darragh O’Connor goaling and Olan and Ben adding further points. This gave us a half-time lead of 1-6 to 2-0. The second half was even less scores with both defences on top and both sets of forwards wasting numerous opportunities. Cian McDonald, Ryan McCarthy and Richie Landers were all superb in our defence, while Aaron O’Connell also swept up well in the right corner. The game was finely balanced until Ben O’Connor’s goal six minutes from the end, which was followed by a point from Daniel Lucey which his endeavours throughout the game warranted. A late goal from Carrigaline kept it interesting until the end but our victory was deserved. Next game in this league is at home to Blarney on Thursday 23rd with championship just a few weeks away.[CM]
Team: Dara Motherway, Aaron O’Connell, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Oisin McCarthy, Ryan McCarthy, Richie Landers, David Kelly, Karl O’Toole, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Olan Broderick (0-4, 0-2f), Ben O’Connor (1-2), Owen Cosgrove (0-1), Daniel Lucey (0-1), Darragh O’Connor (0-1), Ciaran Leahy, Brian Murphy, Robbie Treacy.

U10
Today saw the first under 8 hurling blitz of the year. We only fielded one team today but the boys showed great determination. There was a very strong wind during the games against Ballincollig, the hosts Carrigtwohill and St. Catherine’s. Each week the boys grow in confidence and I have no doubt that we are witnessing stars of the future. Well done boys.[CB]

Pairc Ui Chinneide was the venue for the Minor league clash between Douglas and Killeagh/Ita’s on Thursday 2nd April. Killeagh/Ita’s had registered 1-4 on the scoreboard before Douglas replied with a point from a free. Shane was first on the score sheet, with Aaron splitting the posts next. Jack Mercuchev completely fooled the Douglas goalie with his shot on goal and the ball ended up in the top corner of the net. Killian scored his first point of an impressive 1-9 personal tally, with Shane putting another over the bar. It was the 12 minute of the game before Douglas registered a score with a point from a free. Killian replied by scoring from a free, while on the other end of the pitch Douglas scored a point from a 65. Our back line were very impressive on the day and the game was into its 23rd minute when Douglas scored their first point from play. At half time Killeagh/Ita’s were leading on a score of 1-9 to 4 pts with Killian, Jack, Aaron and Dave each scoring points before the whistle blew. Play resumed and Killeagh/Ita’s showed no sign of taking their foot off the pedal and had tacked on another five points to their score when in the eighth minute Douglas scored their first point of the second half. Referee Jim Daly awarded Killeagh/Ita’s a penalty in the 13th minute of the game and it was superbly converted to a goal by Killian who also went on to score the next two points for Killeagh/Ita’s. Douglas went on to score a point and a goal which gave them their final score of 1-6, however Killeagh/Ita’s weren’t finished yet with Killian and Shane each scoring a point to give Killeagh/Ita’s a full-time score of 2-18.[OS]
Team : D Cusack, C Broderick, J O’Rourke, F Smiddy, J Landers, C Coughlan, E Barron, D Ogbebor(0-1), C Deane, S Kearney (0-3), K Treacy (1-9), C Budds, A Walsh (0-3), J Mercuchev (1-2), J Clifford.
Under 16s begin with impressive win
Our Under 16 hurlers began their league campaign in impressive style with a comprehensive victory over Erins Own in Caherlag on Monday last. Goals from Keane Budds (from a ’65) and Jamie Clifford in the first seven minutes gave our lads a head start, and with the strong wind at our backs, we kicked on and scored 2-9 to just a point in reply by half time. The second half saw Erins Own mount a fight back with the wind but our forwards were clinical every time the ball came up to their end, with Richie Long, Jamie Clifford, Shane Kearney and Olin Hennessy getting further goals to give us a well-earned first two points of the campaign. Next up is a local derby game against Youghal.[CM]
Panel: Fionn McDonnell (C), Darragh Geary, Dylan Hogan, Kieran Daly, Barry Motherway, Jamie Landers, Daniel Hickey, Keane Budds, Padraig Leahy, Richie Long, Sean Walsh, Shane Kearney, Sean Broderick, Jamie Clifford, Adrian Galvin, Olin Hennessy, James Kent, Liam McCarthy, Andrew Foley, Jack Wyse.

Under 14s also open impressively
Following on the footsteps of the Under 16s, our Under 14s gave a fine display of point scoring to defeat Mallow by 1-18 to 0-2 on Easter Saturday at sunlit Páirc Uí Chinnéide. Daniel Lucey was the scoring star of a keenly contested first half, bagging 1-3 and causing headaches for the Mallow defence. At the other end Cian McDonald had to marshal his defence on a number of occasions, while Oisin McCarthy worked hard in midfield. Olan Broderick finished with six points in total, while sub Ben O’Connor added three of his own in the second half. Next up is Féile in Cobh next Saturday where we play Cobh, Na Piarsaigh, Bandon and St. Colman’s.[CM]
Panel: Dara Motherway, Aaron O’Connell, Cian McDonald, Danny Cunningham, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy (C), Richie Landers, Karl O’Toole, Oisin McCarthy, Cathal Fitzgibbon, David Kelly, Owen Cosgrove, Olan Broderick, Daniel Lucey, Darragh O’Connor, Paul Delaney, George Sinclair, Ben O’Connor, Christian Coughlan.

Easter Camp gets loads of bunnies hopping!
Boys and girls from 4 to 14 were bunny hopping, running, jumping, wrestling, and doing a little bit of hurling and football too (!) for three days in Páirc Uí Chinnéide last week. Sean Crowley was the brains behind this highly successful Easter Camp which was a hit with the more than 150 participants, their parents and club officers. The Camp also benefitted the many young coaches who were tutored and nurtured by Sean and other coaching experts like Shane Supple, Ger Foley, Philip O’Neill. Some of these teenagers will surely one day be the coaching experts themselves imparting their knowledge to a younger generation. The circle of life!! Well done Sean, Ursula and all who helped to make this such a success.[CM]

Minors
A very wild and windy Pairc Ui Chinneide played host to Midleton minor hurlers on Sunday 29th March. A very strong wind across the pitch was a hugely influential factor in this challenge game. Many a sliotar sailed left and right of the posts as players tried unsuccessfully to guage the wind. Midleton were the first to register a score as a white flag was raised for them, however Killeagh/Ita’s soon found their scoring range. Killeagh/Ita’s were leading by a point at half time on a score line of 1-6 to 1-5. However when the full time whistle blew it was Midleton who were ahead by the narrowest of margins. The full time score was 2-11 to 2-12.
Team: A Walsh, F Smiddy, E Barron, L Fogarty, J Landers, C Deane, C Coughlan, P Delaney, K Treacy 1-1, K Budds 0-4, A Leahy 1-3, E Fitzgibbon 0-1, S Kearney 0-1, J Mercuchev, C Broderick 0-1. Subs D Landers, P Leahy [OS]
Paddy Whelan Memorial U-14 Tournament Lismore
Killeagh-Ita’s 1-2, Mount Sion 1-1.
Killeagh-Ita’s 2-1, Cois Brid 1-1.
Killeagh-Ita’s 1-11, Naomh Carthaigh 3-6
Our Under 14 hurlers travelled to Lismore to play in the Paddy Whelan tournament on Saturday and had an eventful morning. Four teams participated – the hosts Naomh Carthaigh, their neighbours Cois Bríd, and the city slickers Mount Sion. We played Mount Sion in our first game and secured a narrow 1-2 to 1-1 victory, with Ben O’Connor raising the green flag following a great pass from Darragh O’Connor. Next up was Cois Bríd, and this time we won by 2-1 to 1-1, with Daniel Lucey and Robbie Treacy getting the goals and David Kelly scoring a point. So this set us up for a final against our hosts, and this was a real thriller. We played with the wind in the first half and got off to a great start with a 1-8 to 1-1 lead. Daniel Lucey, Ryan McCarthy, Ciaran Leahy, Cathal Fitzgibbon and Ben O’Connor were the scorers but the team played well all through. It was backs to the wall for the second half and despite adding two points from frees, Naomh Carthaigh replied with 2-3 to leave the scores level 1-10 to 3-4. On to extra time, where we held a slender one point lead (Cathal again) after the initial five minutes, but Naomh Carthaigh got two points with the wind in the final five to edge it by the minimum. So great credit to our team, who put up a terrific performance from start to finish and were unlucky to be pipped at the post. Many thanks to the Lismore club for inviting us to this prestigious tournament and for their fine spread of food provided to all on the day.
Team: Dara Motherway, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Aaron O’Connell, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Richie Landers, Oisin McCarthy, Owen Cosgrove, David Kelly, Ben O’Connor, Cathal Fitzgibbon, George Sinclair, Daniel Lucey, Darragh O’Connor, Christian Coughlan, Ciaran Leahy, Robbie Treacy. [CM]
U13
With clocks changed the night before there was no chance that any player would be late for their first league match of the year. Killeagh/Ita’s U13 where facing Midleton for their first competitive match of the season at a very blustery Pairc Ui Chinneide. Never more was the saying a “game of two halves” appropriate. Midleton had score a very impressive 4 goals and 3 points while we had just registered 1 goal and 3 points. Our boys were battling hard but were failing to convert their efforts into scores. A very passionate half-time talk by Donie had our boys buzzing going into the second half and what a second half it proved to be. Our boys played fantastic hurling and held Midleton scoreless in the second half. Killeagh/Ita’s completely dominated and scored an impressive 5 goals and 4 points to which Midleton had no reply. Full time score 4-3 to 6-7
Team: A Fitzgibbon, R Farquhar, P Landers, C Desmond, D Collins 0-2, R Treacy 1-2, B Murphy, C Leahy 0-1, P Kent 1-0, R Bernard, C Coughlan, B O Connor 2-2, D Doherty 1-0 C O’Rourke, T McCarthy. Subs P Mackey 1-0, B Jennings [OS]

U12 Hurling League Erins Own 0-5, Killeagh-Ita’s 4-10
An impressive performance gave Killeagh-Ita’s U12 victory in their opening league game on Saturday last in a windy Caherlag. Erins Own played with the wind in the first half and were first to score, and were putting our backs under pressure. George Walsh, Darragh O’Leary and Colm Treacy led the defence strongly, while Ben Budds was a safe cúl báire. In a clever move, David Buttimer was moved from corner-forward to forage around midfield against the wind, and he did that extremely effectively. Erins Own led by 0-5 to 0-2 before Colm Leahy restored parity with a fine goal. At half-time we led by a point, 1-3 to 0-5. The second half was more one-sided as Erins Own struggled to get the ball up the field against the strong wind. Colm Leahy, Aaron Fitzgibbon and Paudie Mackey added goals, while Evan Lane scored fine points from play and from frees. Well done boys, next up is a football game against Midleton in two weeks time.
Team: Ben Budds, Darragh O’Leary, George Walsh, Jack Flanagan, David Buckley, Colm Treacy, Daniel Walsh, Evan Lane, Eoin Brenner, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Paudie Mackey, Rory Motherway, David Buttimer, Colm Leahy, Ben Fogarty.[CM]
Under 7s and Under 8s have a Monster Morning!Saturday 28th March saw the first blitz of the new season held at Killeagh GAA grounds. The day was cool and damp but parents and kids arrived full of enthusiasm.

Table Quiz Ticks All The Right Boxes
Almost 200 primary school children (46 teams of 4) packed into Killeagh Hall on Thursday evening last for the second annual Killeagh-Ita’s Primary Schools Table Quiz. 100 questions later, the collective brains were well and truly fried, and the Castlemartyr NS team led by Ciara Steele romped home in first place with a fantastic 97% strike rate. Castlemartyr NS also had the team in joint second, tied with the Inch NS boys Robbie, Eon, Colm and Ciaran, while two teams from Bunscoil, Youghal tied for third place. Many thanks to all the schools who supported the quiz, and to all who helped in the preparation and the running of the event.

The goal scores for Killeagh/Ita’s were Kian Budds, Dan Landers and Padraig Delaney. Dan also scored 3 points, with Killian registering 2, Shane and Sam one each. We would like to thank Paudie Kearney who officiated on the night.

U14 Killeagh-Ita’s 2-7, Sarsfields 1-6
Under 14 hurlers;
Sarsfields brought two teams to a sun-kissed Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Saturday last for simultaneous challenge games against our Under 13 and Under 14 teams. Our Under 14 boys had an impressive win, although both sides were depleted as a result of the Imokilly Under 14 game in Fermoy and injuries. In their absence some of our other players came to the fore – Aaron O’Connell played a stormer at corner-back, while Owen Cosgrove scored a fine goal from midfield. Cian McDonald and Daniel Lucey had great battles with their opponents at either end of the field, with Daniel’s efforts rewarded with 1-1 and good support play. Cathal Fitzgibbon worked really well on the left wing, and David Kelly caught some great possession and distributed well. Darragh O’Connor scored a fine point from corner-forward and Tommy Noonan battled well in the other corner. All in all, a very pleasing performance for Ger, Michael and Padraig.
Team: Dara Motherway, Aaron O’Connell, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Danny Cunningham, Robert Sinclair, Karl O’Toole, Oisin McCarthy, Owen Cosgrove, David Kelly, Olan Broderick, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Tommy Noonan, Daniel Lucey, Darragh O’Connor.[CM]
Under 13 hurlers;
The Under 13 team had a great battle with their opposition before eventually losing out but Donie and John were pleased with the effort and the performance overall. Padraig Landers was solid at full-back, Robbie Treacy hurled well at centre-back while Ben O’Connor carried the main scoring threat up front.
Team: George Walsh, Ben Jennings, Padraig Landers, Colin Desmond, Brian Murphy, Robbie Treacy, David Collins, Ciaran Leahy, Paul Kent, Remy Bernard, Christian Coughlan, Ben O’Connor, Ciaran O’Rourke, Ryan Farquhar, Daniel Doherty, Darragh Buckley, Evan Lane, Colm Treacy.[CM]

Minors
Last week proved to be a very busy week for our minor team who played three games in six days in both codes. Next week is looking similar as we begin the week with a hurling challenge game against Carrigtwohill at home on Monday night.
Killeagh/Ita’s V St Colemans.
On Monday 9th March we welcomed St Colemans to Pairc Ui Chinneide for a hurling challenge game under lights. It was a bitterly cold night, however this did not deter our lads who took on the task at hand and played some lovely hurling. The starting fifteen was significantly different at the end of the game as the subs bench was emptied to give everybody some match time. It proved to be a very entertaining game with Killeagh/Ita’s wining comfortably in the end. The score at full time was 3-11 to 1-11. Thanks also to Arthur Murphy for taking the time to carry out refereeing duties.
Team: Darren Cusack, Emmet Barron, Jack O’Rourke, Kenneth Cantillon, Christy Coughlan, Darragh O’ Brien, Kevin Murphy, Cathal Deane, Padraig Delaney, Sam Desmond, Killian Treacy, Jack Mercuchev, Dave Ogebebor, Andrew Leadhy and Dan Landers. Subs: Fergal Smiddy, Luke Fogarty, Kian Budds, Shane Kearney, Jamie Clifford, Aaron Walsh, Eoin Fitzgibbon.
Killeagh/Ita’s V Youghal.
Football was the order of the night when we visited our near neigbhours on Thursday 12th. This was the minor’s second league game of the season. The conditions underfoot were anything but good however our players gallantly rose to the challenge. We were leading quite comfortably at half time on a score- line of 2-3 to 0-3. Darren Cusack had put away two cracking goals, with Dan Landers tacking on two points and Aaron Walsh one. We were delighted that Darren had left enough in the tank after competing in the Ballycotton 10 on the previous Sunday, where he came 2nd in the junior men’s section. Congratulations Darren. The second half got underway with everybody in attendance dreaming of going home for a much needed cup of tea to warm up. Unfortunately the second half of the game was marred with a very nasty incident which saw Christy Coughlan having to leave Magners Hill and head to the CUH to receive medical attention. When play resumed Youghal were reduced to 14 players as the offending player had received a straight red card for his offence. Fergal Smiddy took the field to replace Christy. The Killeagh/Ita’s boys proved to be an unstoppable force and we saw Padraig Delaney score an impressive 1-2. Dan and Aaron added to their first half scores and scored another point each in the second half. The referee Jim Hennessy finally blew for full time before the heavens opened and we headed home on a full time score of 3-7 to 0-12.
Team: Luke Fogarty, Jamie Landers, Jack O’Rourke, Kenneth Cantillon, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Emmet Barron, Christy Coughlan, Dave Ogebobor , Darren Cusack, Padraig Delaney, Dan Landers, Cathal Deane, Shane Kearney, Andy Leahy, Aaron Walsh. Subs: Fergal Smiddy for Christy Coughlan, Cullen Ryan-Hyde for Jamie Landers and Cian Budds for Shane Kearney
Killeagh/Ita’s V Carrigtwohill
The minor’s final game of the week saw them making their way to Carrigtwohill to play them in football league. Unfortunately we only had 14 players so had to concede to Carrigtwohill. However the numerical disadvantage didn’t put off our footballers who battled on valiantly. It was wonderful to see Christy on the sideline cheering on the boys and we look forward to seeing him back on the pitch soon. Carrigtwohill were the first to score notching up two goals before we registered any score. However we soon found our scoring legs. This morning proved very informative from the point of view of potential goalies or not! Over the 60 mins we saw a change of personnel five time as a third of the team got to stand between the goal posts. Some hands proving more secure than others. Scores were traded back and forth until the final whistle with our boys playing very good football. We were very unfortunate not to win on the score board and Carrigtwohill finished on a score of 4-5 with Killeagh/Ita’s finishing on 1-12.
Team : Dave Ogebobor 0-2, Shane Kearney, Jack O Rourke, Cullen Ryan-Hyde, Jack Mercuchev, Emmet Barron, Kenneth Cantillon, Cathal Deane 0-2, Dan Landers 0-3, Padraig Delaney 0-4, Darren Cusack, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Andrew Leahy 1-1, Aaron Walsh [Olivia O’Rourke]

Féíle Football Fever In Fine Fields Follows Friday’s Fair !
After the heavy rains of Thursday, it didn’t look like we would be able to host 6 teams for seven games of football on Saturday in Féile Peil. However, the fine drying conditions of Friday allowed the field assessors to pass two of their three pitches as playable and so the games began on schedule on Saturday morning at 11.00. In Group 1, Carrigaline began with a facile victory over Erins Own, while our Under 14 boys played a great game against Midleton but ultimately fell short by 2-9 to 2-1. Richie Landers and David Kelly (penalty) were our goalscorers although we were unfortunate to lose Daniel Lucey to injury early in this game. In the second series of games Na Piarsaigh beat Erins Own and Midleton overcame Mitchelstown to build an unassailable lead in Group 2. The third series of games saw Carrigaline defeat Na Piarsaigh in the Group 1 head-to-head, while our team played Mitchelstown. Although we couldn’t qualify for the final our boys played excellent football from back to front, with Paul Delaney, Richie Landers, Ciaran O’Rourke, David and Ryan McCarthy on the scoresheet, and all 24 of our panel getting some game time. Bainisteoiri Tom and Colm and their selectors Alan and Denis were delighted with the performance collectively of the team, with strong evidence of training ground practice being applied in match situations. Hopefully this team can make a good impression in league and/or championship in 2015!
While the games were going ahead, inside was a hive of activity with food and refreshments to be served to all teams and supporters. This was as much of a team effort as the on-field activities so many thanks to all the parents who brought food in all forms and stayed to help with the catering and wash up. Ar scáth a chéile …

Under 16 hurlers get going with a win
Ballygarvan 0-11, Killeagh-Ita’s 4-13
Many thanks to the mothers (and fathers) who forsook their Mother’s Day to drive to Ballygarvan on Sunday morning for our opening hurling game of 2015 – a challenge against the locals. This was a good game of hurling with our hosts holding the upper hand for the first twenty minutes. Two goals before half-time from Keane Budds and Jamie Clifford gave us a lead of 2-6 to 0-5 at half time, and the second half was almost a carbon copy as we scored 2-7 to Ballygarvan’s 0-6. Best score of the first half came from Olin Hennessy with an excellent point from out near the left-hand sideline. Adrian Galvin and Andrew Foley were the ‘dara leath’ goalscorers while Sean Broderick, Jamie Landers, James Kent and Dylan Hogan hunted very well for the ball. Shane Kearney, Keane Budds, Sean Walsh, Padraig Leahy and Richie Long scored lovely points, while Fionn McDonnell made good saves at the other end. Tosach maith …
