Under 21s get off to a winning start but at a price

County U21 A Hurling Championship Killeagh-Ita’s 2-19, Bishopstown 0-10

Killeagh-Ita’s had a comprehensive win over Bishopstown on Wednesday evening in Midleton in Round 1 of the inaugural County U21 A Hurling Championship. The win was cemented with a strong second-half display after there was little between the sides in the first half. Unfortunately the win was overshadowed by a bad arm injury sustained accidentally by Aaron Walsh in the first half which necessitated surgery on Friday for Aaron and will mean a few months on the sideline for Aaron. This is a big blow to the prospects of this team, the Junior A team and the minor teams (hurling and football) in their quest for success, as Aaron was a pivotal member of all these sides and had been having a fantastic season so far. It’s an even bigger blow to Aaron himself as he will have to kick his heels now while the action goes on without him. Best wishes Aaron!

Team: Colin Walsh, Jamie Landers, Jack O’Rourke, Kenneth Cantillon, Christy Coughlan, Kevin Murphy, Darragh Cahill, Gary Leahy, Darragh O’Brien, Aaron Walsh, Killian Treacy, Shane Smiddy, Dan Landers, Andrew Leahy, Matthew Murphy, David Ogbebor, Eric Murphy, Bobby McCarthy.

Summer Camp – the best ever!

The kit was the best yet, the sun shone endlessly, and over 200 children came to our annual Cúl Camp in Páirc Uí Chinnéide this week. The weather couldn’t have been better with temperatures in the high 20s on Monday and Tuesday getting us off to a scorching start. The coaches were all enthusiastic and full of fun, and our co-ordinators Ursula and Sean had everything planned to a T. We had loads of hurling and football, a little bit of rounders, and plenty of games and challenges as well as mini-blitzes. When 2.00 p.m. Friday came around, all 200+ children trooped wearily but happily off the pitches, followed by their coaches and helpers, and they all had some healthy fruit to sustain them on their journeys. Well done to all the boys and girls from age 5 to 13 who gave their best energies to it, and to our coaches and helpers (too many to mention individually) who ensured that everyone (including our two Dutch visitors Nina and Rose) had fun. A special thank you to the many people who brought sandwiches, cakes, and other essential supplies to the hungry coaches and helpers every day, and in particular to Ursula, Liz and Olivia (and others) who looked after the needs of young and old from early morning to almost 3.00 p.m. every day. We’re looking forward to 2017 already!

Senior Hurlers get out of jail!

Senior Hurling Championship Round 2B Killeagh 4-12, UCC 1-20

Jubilant scenes abounded in Clonmult Park, Midleton on Sunday evening last when a last-minute Shane Smiddy goal gave Killeagh senior hurlers a victory over a talented UCC side in Round 2B of the senior hurling championship and put our young team in to Round 4. Victory seemed to be out of our reach with UCC’s dominant second half display (excellent performances from Tom Devine, Anthony Spillane and Chris O’Leary among others) which saw them turn around a three point half time deficit (2-8 to 0-11) to lead by three (1-20 to 3-11) with 60 minutes gone. This was in contrast to the first half where Killeagh played some brilliant hurling with two excellent goals. John O’Connor’s gut bursting run after three minutes set up David Cahill for the first goal on three minutes, while Darragh Cahill added the second on 14 minutes. When Shane Smiddy added his first score (1-3 in total in a real “Roy Of The Rovers” display) it left our team 2-5 to 0-6 at the end of the first quarter. However, we were limited to just three points from David Cahill frees for the remainder of the half, and this trend continued for the third quarter where we failed to add to our score while UCC scored 1-9 in this same thirty-minute period. Despite being under the cosh, our team kept battling, and were rewarded with an excellent Gary Leahy goal on 48 minutes, finishing expertly after receiving a perfect pass from the returning Andy Walsh. Shane added two points but it looked like being too little (UCC had many chances to widen the gap but were guilty of poor shooting in the final ten minutes) before that late great goal from Shane. Well done to our team and management who have now ensured that we are into Round 3.

Team: Bernard Rochford, Allen Keniry, Padraig Carroll, Cian Fogarty, Patrick O’Brien, Kevin Murphy (0-1), Kieran Lane, Brian Collins, John O’Connor, Killian Treacy (0-1), Daniel Walsh, Shane Smiddy (1-3), Gary Leahy (1-0), Darragh Cahill (1-1), David Cahill (0-6f). Sub used: Andrew Walsh

 

Golf Classic once again a major success

The annual Killeagh GAA Golf Classic (AKA the Ray Rochford Tour-De-Force) was once again a three-day master success, with over 140 teams enjoying the beautiful West Waterford course in mostly fine weather (bar the unlucky last eight teams out on Thursday evening who got a bit of a drenching). Ray, Sean and Ursula were on hand throughout to welcome everyone and ensure that the Killeagh GAA Golf Classic maintains its status as one of the best Classics in the country. Winners were Eamonn Brennan’s team with 112 points, followed by Apple on 101 and East Cork Oil on 100. Rathcormac Tyres were best Gross, while Breathnachs were best non-GUI team followed by Fogarty’s Garage. June White’s team were best ladies. Full results will be available in the coming days on http://www.killeaghgaa.org. Many thanks to all those who played and our over 150 sponsors who all contributed to make the Classic another highly successful event. Thanks Ray, the statue is long overdue!

Double Delight For Killeagh-Ita’s in Championship

Premier 1 Minor Hurling Championship Quarter-Final Killeagh-Ita’s 1-10, Douglas 1-8

Eastern A Fé 16 Hurling Championship Semi-Final Killeagh-Ita’s 4-14, Kiltha Óg 2-13

It was a fantastic week for Killeagh-Ita’s older age teams as the Under 16 and minor teams both negotiated challenging opponents to secure critical championship wins in the past week. First up on a fine Monday evening in Rostellan was the Under 16 game where supporters witnessed a cracking tie with brilliant scores, defending, catching, hooking, blocking and free-taking on display from both sides. Kiltha had the wind in the first half but hit a few wides early on before settling in to the game. Scores were hard to come by with Kiltha leading by 1-8 to 105 at half time. Our goal came from a Ben O’Connor free but Kiltha’s goal was the highlight of the half, an unstoppable bullet from impressive full-forward Kyle Quinn Waites. The second half saw Ben add a quick goal and a point to put us ahead before Kiltha took over and dominated for 15 minutes, with a second goal from Quinn Waites and top-class free-taking from two of their other star players Joe Stack and Daragh Moran (credit also to outstanding Under 14 player Ciaran Joyce) giving them a 2-12 to 2-9 lead. Killeagh-Ita’s had their own sharpshooter from placed balls, with Ryan McCarthy knocking over 6 in succession which levelled the score with 8 minutes to go. Padraig Leahy, Oisin McCarthy and Barry Motherway were working very hard in the middle third of the pitch, leading to persistent fouling from the Kiltha defence. It was a free awarded harshly against Kiltha Og for over-carrying (reiteoir Brian Murphy had an excellent game otherwise) which then had dramatic consequences when Ryan’s long-range effort dropped into the net to give our boys a three point cushion. Kiltha chased the game from here to the finish and were denied by an excellent save from the other Brian Murphy in the Killeagh-Ita’s goals. A third goal for Ben in injury time gave an unbalanced look to the scoreboard at the final whistle – in truth this game could have gone either way and Kiltha were unlucky to be eliminated from this championship despite having contributed to a classic game. Elation for our boys, who qualify to play Cloughduv (winners over Nemo Rangers in the other semi-final) on Sunday July 24th in Ballinlough at 7.00 p.m.

Team: Brian Murphy, .Darragh Geary, Daniel Lucey, Kieran Daly, Richie Long, Richie Landers, Adrian Galvin, Padraig Leahy, Ryan McCarthy, Oisin McCarthy, Barry Motherway, Padraig Leahy, Olin Hennessy, Olan Broderick, Ben O’Connor. Subs used: Dara Motherway, Paul Delaney.

 

Thursday evening’s minor championship quarter final against Douglas in Cobh lacked the entertainment factor and scoring rate of Monday’s U16 game, but that was almost wholly due to the rain that poured down at various stages during the evening, spoiling the game as a spectacle. Both teams worked extremely hard and excellent defending from both sides kept the score low. At half time Killeagh-Ita’s led by 0-7 to 0-4, with four different forwards and one midfielder (David Ogbebor, Keane Budds, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Sean Walsh and Aaron Walsh) getting excellent points from play, added to two Killian Treacy frees. Douglas had difficulty with their accuracy, with seven wides, which Killeagh-ita’s unfortunately bettered in the second half with eight wides of their own. Scores were very scarce for 20 minutes after half time with only two frees converted by each team, and chances missed on both sides. Our defence was performing heroically, particularly Emmet Barron, Jack O’Rourke and Jamie Landers, while Killian Treacy and Sean Walsh were very busy in the other half. Two points from play in the 50th and 51st minute for Douglas left us with a precarious one point lead, with Douglas letting slip a chance to equalise soon after from a convertible free. A goalmouth scramble with two minutes left saw Andrew Leahy push home a crucial goal from close range, and a Killian Treacy point gave us a five-point cushion with time almost up. A late penalty for Douglas was not sufficient for them to save the game, as we had a two point lead (1-10 to 1-8) at referee Tim Cummins’ final whistle.

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Emmet Barron, Jack O’Rourke, Dylan Hogan, Jamie Landers, Christy Coughlan, Kevin Murphy, Aaron Walsh, Keane Kelly Budds, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Killian Treacy, David Ogbebor, Sean Walsh, Andrew Leahy, Shane Kearney. Subs used: Cathal Deane, Padraig Leahy.

 

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 6-16, Carrigtwohill 2-7

Killeagh-Ita’s U14’s took to the pitch in Carrigtwohill on Friday 15th July for their second hurling league game, against Carrigtwohill. The home advantage however didn’t work in Carrig’s favour as Killeagh-Ita’s proved too strong and had a very comfortable win on a scoreline of 6-16 to 2-07. Carrigtwohill opened the scoring with a goal however this didn’t deter our boys with Brian converting a free to get us started. The next 5 points went to Killeagh-Ita’s before the home side scored a point from a free. Ciaran O’Rourke and Ben O’Connor responded in style with a goal apiece. When the ref blew the half time whistle Killeagh-Ita’s were leading on a score line of 3-09 to 1-04. Killeagh-Ita’s continued to dominate in the second half with Ciaran O Rourke, Ben and Eoin Brenner managing to get the sliothar past an excellent Carrigtwohill goalie who was working hard to keep the ball out of the back of his net. Well done to all the team who played great hurling, this was a panel win with every player getting match time. Full time score was 6-16 to 2-07.

 

Panel: G Walsh, P Landers, R Farquahar, D Coleman, R Treacy, B O Connor (2-06), R Bernard, C Coughlan (0-01), D Collins, D Doherty (0-01), B Murphy (0-02), P Kent, C Leahy (0-03), C O’Rourke (3-02), T McCarthy, C Treacy, A Fitzgibbon, J Fogarty, P Mackey, E Brenner (1-00), E Lane

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Two out of Three ….

Rebel Óg Eastern ’A’ Fé 16 Hurling Championship Killeagh-Ita’s 6-17, Aghabullogue 2-6

Championship came to Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Monday evening last as we welcomed Aghabullogue for the Eastern A quarter-final clash. Having been beaten twice in championship semi-final and league final by our opponents at this grade in 2015, our team and mentors were intent on balancing the books. A flying start saw us get three early points from Ryan McCarthy, Ben O’Connor and a free from Ryan, before Barry Motherway fed Ben who goaled in the fourth minute. Aghabullogue replied instantly with a goal and a point from their lethal full-forward Tadhg Bradley (subsequently well marshalled by Daniel Lucey, Dylan Hogan and Richie Landers in turn) and the game was on. However, our boys took control and, playing excellent hurling throughout the field, added 1-4 without reply, the goal scored by Olin Hennessy after great work by Adrian Galvin. Aghabullogue came again, adding a further 1-2 by the 27th minute, by which time we held a slender 2-9 to 2-3 lead, given that we had played with strong wind advantage. However, in the closing minutes of the half, 2-2 (Olan Broderick and Oisin McCarthy points, followed by goals by Olan and Ben) gave us a substantial advantage to take against the breeze. The second half saw the intensity and the scoring rate drop somewhat, and Tadhg Bradley’s enforced withdrawal due to injury on 40 minutes limited our opponents’ scoring threat. Barry Motherway and Olan Broderick added further goals while our replacements all did well, with Owen Cosgrove getting the final point before Pa Beausang’s final whistle. Next up is Kiltha Óg on Monday 11th in Rostellan. Kiltha have a 3-18 to 3-11 league win chalked up against us from earlier in the season, so will fancy their chances. Can we do it? Come back here next week for the report! This could be close!

Panel: Brian Murphy, Darragh Geary, Daniel Lucey, Kieran Daly, David Kelly, Dylan Hogan, Adrian Galvin, Richie Landers, Ryan McCarthy (0-6, 0-5f), Oisin McCarthy (0-1), Barry Motherway (1-0), Richie Long (0-1), Olin Hennessy (1-0), Olan Broderick (2-4), Ben O’Connor (2-3), Dara Motherway, Darragh O’Connor, James Kent, Owen Cosgrove (0-1), Danny Cunningham, Tommy Noonan, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Paul Delaney.  

Rebel Óg Premier 1 Minor Hurling League Na Piarsaigh 0-12, Killeagh-Ita’s 1-10

One of our most enjoyable victories of recent years by any team was achieved against the odds in the northside of Cork city on Wednesday evening last. Four points down with 10 minutes remaining, our hosts Na Piarsaigh had hit seven points in a row with the gale-force wind to turn an 8-5 deficit into a 12-8 lead. We looked like getting no return for the excellent effort from every player, which had been spoiled somewhat by poor shooting in the first half (notable for a trademark Aaron Walsh point from distance and also for a Kevin Murphy puck-out going wide at the other end of the field). However, in that closing ten minutes, Shane Kearney (brilliant in the second half) added his second point before Kevin pointed a free from distance. With two minutes left, Shane floated a high ball into the cearnóg where Seán Walsh (also brilliant in the second half) got the deftest of flicks to it to lodge it behind the cúl báire and isteach sa chúl! Our backs then defended heroically as they had done all evening, with tigerish defending from the whole team, but especially Emmet Barron, Jack O’Rourke and Christy Coughlan. Eoin Fitzgibbon and Keane Budds showed great stamina throughout (GPS trackers on those two would give interesting stats!), while Killian Treacy mixed solid free-taking with great work-rate throughout the pitch.

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Dylan Hogan, Jack O’Rourke, Emmet Barron, Jamie Landers, Christy Coughlan, Kevin Murphy, Keane Budds (0-1), Cathal Deane, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Killian Treacy (0-6, 0-5f), Aaron Walsh (0-1), Shane Kearney (0-2), David Ogbebor, Sean Walsh (1-0), Richie Long, Barry Motherway, Adrian Galvin.

 

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Fé 15 Hurling League Ballincollig 2-17 Killeagh-Ita’s 2-10

A below-par performance against an admittedly strong (physically and skill-wise) Ballincollig team on Thursday last saw us fall to our first defeat of this league campaign after four wins. Ballincollig led from the first minute with an early goal, and maintained their lead throughout (1-4 to 0-3 after 22 minutes, 1-8 to 0-3 at half-time). Our corner-backs Danny Cunningham and Paul Delaney were very strong in their corners, and Robert Sinclair had a very busy game on his wing, while Under 14s David Collins and Remy Bernard also did well. A better second-half showing saw us get late goals from Ben O’Connor and Richie Landers to close the gap, but in truth, Ballincollig were full value for their seven point win, and they have by far the best Under 15 player we have seen so far in this league in tall and skilful midfielder Paul Cooney. Beidh lá eile againn!

Páirc Uí Chinnéide Goes Smoke-Free – Clock Is Ticking Towards August 1st!

NO SMOKING! is the motto loud and clear from August 1st in Páirc Uí Chinnéide. Unfortunately one of our players was subjected to passive smoke from an opposition mentor / supporter in an away match during the week, and suffered with a sore throat in the following days. Let’s keep the air clear, clean and healthy for all of us.

 

CouchTo5K Making Great Strides

Our CouchTo5K running group has gathered momentum and is clocking up the miles and laps in Páirc Uí Chinnéide and in Glenbower Wood. The Inch 5K on August 12th is the target, so come along every Monday night to the pitch at 8.00 p.m. or Saturday morning at 9.00 to Glenbower Wood if you’d like to begin or renew your running activity.

Páirc Uí Chinnéide Goes Smoke-Free – Clock Is Ticking Towards August 1st!

“If you go down to the woods today …” begins the “Teddy Bears’ Picnic”. Well, we’ve got a new rap that will apply from Monday August 1st: “if you go down to the pitch today, leave your cigarettes at home!” We’re going Smoke-Free, for the benefit of all, especially our younger members. Hopefully every user / visitor will respect our new direction and help to make our shared air cleaner and healthier for all of us.

 

CouchTo5K Full Of Perspiration and Inspiration

Our CouchTo5K running group had more new members last Monday, and a motivating pep talk from Liam O’Reilly, expert fitness guru and coach to professional athletes. This encouraged some of the group to meet again on Wednesday and Thursday, and we would like to add further numbers to this group over the next few weeks. The gender balance has seen the males fall behind, so men of Killeagh and around, get up off the couch and put one foot in front of the other! No point using Euro 2016 as an excuse now, with only three matches left, none on Mondays! The Olympics are coming, this is your chance for your own little mini-Olympic feeling!

 

Meanwhile, our committed Saturday morning running group in Glenbower continue to meet at 9.00 a.m. every Saturday and we’ve had some more new people join us last Saturday. Daylight hours are at their maximum now, so 9.00 a.m. is really the middle of the day! Get up, clear the cobwebs, and you’ll be buzzing for the rest of Saturday!

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Fé 15 Hurling League

Killeagh-Ita’s 6-15, Blackrock 5-8

Our Under 15 team maintained their 100% record in this year’s Premier 2 Hurling League with a 10 point victory over Blackrock in Killeagh on Friday evening last. The margin of victory certainly does not reflect adequately how close this game was, as a flurry of four goals between the 49th and 57th minute helped propel our team to victory. Before the first of those (one of three for Ben O’Connor), the margin had been reduced to one (2-13 to 4-6) and Blackrock had a strong wind behind them. However, this shook our team into action, and in that spell, they scored four goals and conceded just two points. The first half had seen our team play well at times, but having to give second best at times to a committed Rockies outfit, who goaled in the first and 20th minute (this goal should have been prevented as a long free dropped all the way to the net). In between their goals, we dominated up front, and got excellent scores of the green and white variety. Olan Broderick had an outstanding opening quarter, scoring 1-4 from play and rattling the crossbar with another effort, while Darragh O’Connor finished expertly to the net having received a pass from Dara Motherway. A sluggish second half saw us add just two points in the closing 13 minutes of the half, leaving the score 2-10 to 2-4 in our favour at half time. Dara Motherway added two points after the restart but the lead shrank dramatically with the Rockies’ third and fourth goals, before we took control once again for that final quarter. Well done to our team who have now beaten Carrigaline, Ballygarvan, Valley Rovers and Blackrock, but have two tough games remaining against Ballincollig and Na Piarsaigh.

Team: Brian Murphy, Danny Cunningham, Daniel Lucey, Paul Delaney, David Kelly, Richie Landers, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Ben O’Connor, Oisin McCarthy, Owen Cosgrove, Darragh O’Connor, Olan Broderick, Dara Motherway, Tommy Noonan.

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Double Win Blows Off the Cobwebs

Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Fe 16 Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 2-12, Cloughduv 1-10

Rebel Óg Premier 1 Minor Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 2-21, Bishopstown 2-12

A double header in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Saturday last saw our U16 and minor hurlers recording their second and third wins respectively in their league campaigns. Given over six weeks of inactivity for both teams due to the Junior and Leaving Certificate exams, it was something of a challenge for both teams to get back into the swing of things. The opening game of the afternoon saw Cloughduv return to Páirc Uí Chinnéide after an exciting game at Under 14 championship two years ago finished level before Cloughduv easily won the replay. This time around our team managed to come out on top in a close-fought game. Highlights of the first half, which finished level (1-5 to 0-8), were Ryan McCarthy’s exceptional free-taking from distance (four points) and a well-finished goal by Olan Broderick on 12 minutes. The second half saw Cloughduv take the lead with a goal on 36 minutes, before points from Richie Long (2), Ryan McCarthy and Olan Broderick restored parity on 48 minutes. The game-changer was a well-finished goal by Richie Landers, now operating at full-forward, which was followed by a point from Barry Motherway to stretch the lead. Richie added his second point in injury time to ensure our victory. A patchy overall performance garnered the league points, but Aghabullogue, our championship opponents on Monday 4th, won’t be quite quaking in their boots!

Team: Brian Murphy, Darragh Geary, Daniel Lucey, Paul Delaney, David Kelly, Dylan Hogan, Adrian Galvin, Richie Landers (1-2), Ryan McCarthy (0-6f), Oisin McCarthy, Barry Motherway (0-1), Richie Long (0-2, 0-1f), Olin Hennessy, Olan Broderick (1-1), Dara Motherway, Padraig Leahy, Darragh O’Connor, James Kent, Owen Cosgrove, Danny Cunningham, Tommy Noonan.

Our minor opponents Bishopstown arrived just as the U16 match was finished, and they contributed to an entertaining game which saw good scores from both sides. Our team were slow to settle, showing the signs of the long lay-off, with only three points in the first eighteen minutes, by which time Bishopstown had scored 1-1. A highlight of this half was the four missed goal chances by our forwards, two of which were excellent point-blank saves by the outstanding Bishopstown goalkeeper. Trailing by 1-4 to 0-5 after 22 minutes, we finished the half strongly with Sean Walsh (2) and Richie Long adding points from play and Killian Treacy very accurate from frees, to leave us 0-10 to 1-6 ahead. A second soft goal conceded straight after half-time forced our team to work a little harder, with Cathal Deane, David Ogbebor, Shane Kearney and Aaron Walsh getting on a lot of ball, while our defensive spine of Jack O’Rourke and Christy Coughlan were in top form at the back, showing no signs of fatigue after their Junior A Championship game 21 hours earlier. Eventually, the Bishopstown goal was breached when Killian Treacy goaled on 46 minutes, and David Ogbebor’s goal on 51 minutes gave us some breathing space. Scoring 2-21 was impressive, with no fewer than 7 scorers (each of our six forwards scored at least twice), although conceding 2-12 gives plenty of room for improvement at the other end; special mention to U16 players Richie Long, Padraig Leahy, Barry Motherway and Adrian Galvin who played in both games.

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Padraig Leahy, Jack O’Rourke, Emmet Barron, Jamie Landers, Christy Coughlan, Kevin Murphy, Eoin Fitzgibbon (0-1), Cathal Deane, Aaron Walsh (0-2), David Ogbebor (1-2), Sean Walsh (0-2), Shane Kearney (0-2), Killian Treacy (1-10, 0-8f), Richie Long (0-2), Barry Motherway, Adrian Galvin.

 

Congratulations!

Our sister club Inch Rovers created their own history on Saturday last in Mountmellick, Co. Laois, winning the Regional Féile U14 title, defeating Kilmoremoy from Mayo in the final by 4-4 to 0-4. This team have shown great promise for some time now and this was just reward for their efforts. A special mention to Ciara Irwin who achieved a unique Féile double, having starred for Sarsfields of Glanmire as they won the Camogie Féile Division 1 the previous Sunday in Dungarvan.

 

Cúl Camp – July 18th – don’t forget!

Invariably, every year, someone comes along in June asking when Summer Camp is on. Notes have been distributed to all children in our primary schools, but just in case the school bag (never the child!) mislaid the letter, the following is the important information:

Cúl Camp is here again! We would like all boys and girls in primary school (up to 6th class) to consider taking part in this year’s Cúl Camp. If you would like your child/children to participate in same, please fill out the form attached and return to Ursula in Coleman’s Shop, Killeagh no later than Friday July 1st 2016, with the appropriate fee per family (€55 for first child, €45 for each subsequent child).

They set out at 10.00am and returned at 1.00pm having covered approximately 13km of leisure walking and had the added bonus of learning a bit of local history of the area and of local flora and fauna. All who took part thoroughly enjoyed the experience and plans are afoot to organise their second outing in 4/5 weeks’ time. Contact Kieran Scully for more info on 0858037343

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Hard-earned victory for Under 12 boys

Fé 12 Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Hurling League Ballinhassig 2-6, Killeagh-Ita’s 6-2

Having lost at home to St. Catherine’s on the previous Tuesday (the 2-ball controversy will be talked about in some houses for quite some time yet!), it was imperative that our Under 12 boys come away from their trip to Ballinhassig on Friday evening with a victory if they were to maintain their interest in this league. It didn’t look too promising in the early stages as Ballinhassig peppered our goal and only good goalkeeping from Pierse Geary and strong defending from Dylan McCarthy, Danny Fitzgerald and Darragh O’Leary kept the scores conceded column low. After 10 minutes the sides were level with our 1-1 (Colm Leahy’s goal and a Daniel Walsh free) equalling Ballinhassig’s four points. A goal for Ballinhassig gave them a deserved lead but David Buckley’s ’65 dropped to the net, levelling the score again. The rain (what’s that, I hear you ask) came on 20 minutes and our forwards made hay in the rain, adding two further goals from Daniel and Colm just before half-time. 5 scores a-piece, then, but four of ours were green flags, whereas only one of Ballinhassig’s was. The second half saw this symmetry replicated; with 2-1 for our boys (Colm and Daniel) edging Ballinhassig’s 1-2. In truth there was nothing between the teams from start to finish, we just managed to get more of our 8 scores under the bar than our opponents managed with their 8. Excellent performances from our scorers and from David Buckley, Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty and the full-back line pulled us over the line. Well played to our boys who have now qualified for a league play off at least. Special mention to the three boys who were playing their second game of the day having lined out with Inch NS earlier in their Sciath na Scol final victory – well done Ben, Darragh and Rory.

Team: Pierse Geary, Danny Fitzgerald, Darragh O’Leary, Dylan McCarthy, Conor Meade, David Buckley, Evan Daly, Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Ciaran Brennan, Rory Motherway, Daniel Walsh, Callum Martin White, Tommy Morrison, Colm Leahy, Darragh O’Brien and Diarmuid Fogarty.

 

Glory for Inch NS in Sciath Na Scol Final

Inch NS 2-3, Ballintotas NS 2-0.

Inch National School did the double for this school year when they once again defeated unlucky Ballintotas NS in the Hurling Final played in Cork I. T. Stadium on Friday morning last. Congratulations to the full panel and to their muinteoiri / bainisteoiri Maurice O’Mahony and John Irwin. Rory Motherway got Inch off the mark with a fine point inside the 2nd minute, before Colm Leahy pulled on the ground to get the first goal of the game. Colm then collected Rory’s long delivery and was fouled outside the danger area, whereupon Jamie Fogarty stepped up to bang in the second goal of the game. Was it going to be a one-sided game? No fear, as Ballintotas restructured their team and scored two fine goals of their own, with both goals from the excellent Ciarmhac Smyth, who was assisted throughout by the equally excellent Darragh McCarthy. Jamie Fogarty added a second point for Inch, leaving the boys in red ahead by 2-2 to 2-0 at half time. The second half saw really exciting play at all parts of the field, but no luck with scoring from either side bar another point from Jamie, this time from a ’65. It was a deserved victory, with three strong 6th class leaders George Walsh, Evan Lane and Jamie Fogarty leading the charge for Inch, and the other three 6th class players, Sarah Kent, Aaron Fitzgibbon and Jack Flanagan also playing their part with solid performances.

 

Team: Ben Budds, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Jamie Fogarty, Sarah Kent, Evan Lane, Jack Flanagan, George Walsh, Rory Motherway, Ben Walsh, Darragh O’Leary, Colm Leahy, Barry Walsh.

 

U12 Hurling league: Killeagh-Ita’s v’s St. Catherine’s.

Team Pearse Geary, Ben Fogarty, Darragh O’Leary, Tommy Morrison, Conor Meade, Ben Budds, Dylan McCarthy, Rory Motherway, Callum Martin White, Evan Daly, David Buckley, Daniel Walsh, Ciaran Brennan, Column Leagh and Danny Fitzgerald.

The end result was not to be in our favour with a last minute goal from St. Catherine’s making the final score – St. Catherine’s 5-7 Killeagh 5-4.

 

It was a fantastic game of hurling and well done to all our boys.  

No joy for Killeagh-Ita’s in Fe14 County Final Clash. Killeagh-Ita’s and Kiltha Óg took to the pitch in Ballinacurra for the Carrigaline Court Fe14 Premier 2 County Hurling Final on Wednesday 8th last. Our boys worked tirelessly unfortunately their endeavours did not convert to scores on the board. We were first to register a score, when a free awarded to Killeagh-Ita’s was skilfully pointed by Ben; unfortunately this was to be the only time in the game that we were ahead. Despite being first to score the boys never settled into the game and failed to display the standard of hurling that we have become familiar with in recent games. When Cathal Egan blew for half time there was a 7 point difference between the two teams. Killeagh/Ita’s were first to score in the second half however Kiltha Óg responded in kind. A couple of unfortunate goals in the second half put the game beyond the reach of our boys and the cup was to go to Kiltha Óg. Well done to our panel and mentors who gave us a great championship and reached a county final: now they will turn their attention to the league. Final score was a victory to Kiltha Óg of 3-14 to 1-05

Team: G Walsh, E Lane, J Fogarty, P Landers, D Collins, B Murphy, R Treacy, P Kent, C Treacy, B O Connor, C Coughlan, D Doherty, R Bernard, C O Rourke, C Leahy Subs: B Budds, R Farquhar, T McCarthy, D Coleman, A Fitzgibbon, E Brenner, P Mackey, D Scully.

A beautiful evening saw our Boys play a fantastic game of football against Erins Own. 1st score of the match came from Danny Fitzgerald with a cracker of a goal followed by Callum Martin White with a point and another goal. Ben Budds, David Buckley, Ben Fogarty, Callum Martin White, Daniel Walsh and Rory Motherway were very busy chasing up and down the field while Darragh O’Leary, Tommy Morrison, Evan Daly, Eric Mellerick kept the Forward line busy.

Column Leahy was outstanding in goals saving nearly every ball that came his way. He was closely guarded by Ciaran Brennan, Conor Meade and Danny Fitzgerald. Liam Considine and Diarmuid Buckley swapped in and out throughout the game.

Killeagh-Ita’s Cruise past Carrigaline for County Final Clash with Kiltha Óg

Killeagh-Ita’s 7-12 – Carrigaline 2-05 Monday 30th May saw our U14’s take to the pitch in Passage West to take on Carrigaline. It was a beautiful evening for supporters to watch a game but the heat of the evening sun had our water boys working over-time to keep the lads hydrated. Past encounters indicated that this would be a tough hard fought game and spectators were not disappointed. Killeagh-Ita’s were first out of the blocks with a lovely point from Ben, Carrigaline replied almost immediately with a goal. Our boys remained calm and stuck to the game plan and were rewarded by 6 well taken points. A quickly taken free by Ben to Christian resulted in our 2nd point, followed by 4 from Ben and one from Ciaran O O’Rourke. Our boys were working hard and the results were showing on the scoreboard. We were awarded another free in front of goal, should Ben go under or over the cross bar…no indecision from our free taker though and as he raised the sliotar onto his hurley, there was only one place it was going to end up. Killeagh-Ita’s were ahead on a score line of 1-07 to 1-00. Carrigaline however were continually on the attack which resulted in a point from a free and a goal from play. As the half time whistle approached, Carrigaline slotted one point over while Ben and Ciaran Leahy pointed for us. The score at half time read 1-09 to 2-02 as both teams took a much deserved break.

The second half resumed with Killeagh-Ita’s opening the scoring with a wonderful goal from Ciaran Leahy, rapidly followed by a point. Even though Carrigaline were attacking hard they only managed to score 3 points in the second half, however Killeagh-Ita’s work rate was rewarded with several well taken scores. Christian scored two goals in quick succession, the first from a short puck out from the Carrigaline goalie which Christian won and “returned to sender” giving him no chance of a save. The second was taken from a very tight angle, surrounded by defenders however Christian still managed to get the shot and the score. Ben was next to raise the green flag when a shot directly at the gaolie gave him no chance of a save. Ciaran Leahy added a second gaol to his tally and before the ref blew his whistle to end this semi-final encounter Paul Kent put the ball over the goalies head and into the back of the net. This was a real panel victory with one to twenty putting in sterling work and it wasn’t until the final whistle went that we were sure of a win, Carrigaline were pressing hard but due to great defensive work from our backs and midfielders they were unable to convert this to scores. Well done all.

Team: G Walsh, E Lane, J Fogarty, P Landers, D Collins, B Murphy, T Treacy, P Kent, C Treacy, B O Connor, C Coughlan, D Doherty, C Leahy, C O O’Rourke, R Bernard, R Farquhar, T McCarthy, A Fitzgibbon, D Coleman, B Budds. The County Final Clash is scheduled for Wednesday 8th at 7.30 in Ballinacurra against Kiltha Óg. This is the second pairing of these teams in recent months as Killeagh-Ita’s played them in their opening league game where a late goal separated the teams giving the league points to Kiltha Óg. Your support on the night would be much appreciated by mentors and players.
