Comprehensive championships win for u14

Fé 14 Premier 2 Hurling Championship Killeagh-Ita’s v Ballygarvan, Killeagh, Monday May 23rd 2016
Killeagh-Ita’s welcomed Ballygarvan to Pairc Uí Chinnéide on Monday 23rd May for their first game in this year’s U14 hurling championship. It was a beautiful evening for hurling and in front of a large home crowd reitoir Joe Larking threw in the ball at 7.30. Killeagh Ita’s stamped their authority on this game from the off and within a minute had registered a goal when Evan Lane fielded the sliotar to Ben O’Connor who laid it off to Ciaran O’Rourke who had no difficulty in finding the back of the Ballygarvan goal. No sooner had the goalie pucked out the ball when Colm Treacy gathered the ball, passed to Remy Bernard and once again the green flag was raised. Two minutes, two goals and a dream start. Killeagh-Ita’s were on the attack again straight away from the puck out and fantastic stick work from Ryan Farquhar was rewarded by a third goal, and, unbelievably, in three short minutes, the full-forward line had bagged a goal each! Ballygarvan, still reeling from the three quick goals recovered to a score a point, but not to be outdone Christian Coughlan quickly replied by slotting the ball over the bar. Ballygarvan continued their attempts to get a hold on the game by adding another point, however Killeagh-Ita’s added further scores from Ciaran and Ben, followed by two fantastic shots on goal by Ben which left the goalie with no chance of a save and Killeagh-Ita’s holding a very comfortable lead. As the first half was drawing to a close Killeagh-Ita’s scored a further three points as Brian, Remy and Ben each pointed. Ballygarvan did manage to get a goal back and the half time score stood at 5-08 to 1-02.

 

The second half began exactly as the first with Ciaran scoring another goal quickly followed by yet another goal expertly scored by Ben; there was no stopping our boys! Two points came from placed balls for Ben, one from a free and one from a 65. There were plenty of changes of personnel on the field as the bench was emptied. Darragh Coleman wasn’t long on the field when he put his mark on the score sheet with a lovely point. It was Remy‘s turn to be called ashore but he was not leaving the field without one last goal. Ballygarvan found it very difficult to break down our defence due to our outstanding backs, Evan, Jamie, Padraig, David and even when they did penetrate we had George in our goal that pulled off some wonderful saves. Ballygarvan were held scoreless in the second half and Killeagh-Ita’s were not finished scoring yet as Brian added two points in quick succession. Darragh Coleman showed no mercy to Ballygarvan (or the scoreboard!!) When he brought our goal tally up further and it was lights out on our electronic scoreboard… One last opportunity wasn’t lost by Daniel Doherty who squeezed in a final goal before Joe Larkin blew up his final whistle.

 

Next outing for these boys is on Monday 30th in Passage west when they take on Carrigaline in the next round of u14 championship. Throw in at 7 pm. Please come out and support the boys. 

 

Team: George Walsh, Evan Lane, Jamie Fogarty, Padraig Landers, David Collins, Brian Murphy, Robbie Treacy, Paul Kent, Colm Treacy, Ben O’Connor, Daniel Doherty, Christian Coughlan, Remy Bernard, Ciaran O’Rourke, Ryan Farquhar. Subs Darragh Coleman, Tony McCarthy, David Scully, Eoin Brenner, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Ben Budds, Ciaran Leahy

 

P.S. Well done to the boys attending Inch NS who took to the pitch for a second time that day, having earlier beaten Conna in a Sciath Na Scol semi-final. They qualified for the final against Ballintotas NS which will take place on Friday week, June 10th, at 10.30 a.m. in CIT. Well done also to múinteoir and bainisteoir iontach John Irwin who had his charges well primed for both games. Who says a man can’t multi-task? 

 

 

 

 

Fé 9 Hurling Killeagh-Ita’s v St. Catherine’s, Ballynoe, Saturday May 21st 2016

 

Killeagh-Ita’s Under 9 boys played their first game of the season on Saturday last against St. Catherine’s. The boys braved the heavy showers and played extremely well, showing plenty of new skills. Twenty players travelled, showing great appetite for the game. We have plenty of hurling and football matches organised over the coming weeks. Well done boys!

 

Fé 15 Super Touch Hurling Blitz in Killeagh, Saturday May 28th 2016

Those lucky enough to be in Killeagh on Saturday afternoon saw hurling with a difference – with four 10-a-side Under 15 teams participating in the GAA’s Super Touch Competition which was held throughout Munster at a number of different venues. Killeagh-Ita’s as hosts welcomed Fr. O’Neill’s, Castlelyons and Lisgoold, and 6 fast-flowing, high-scoring games ensued. Given that games were only 12 minutes a side and the teams were shooting into Under 12 size goals, the quality and quantity of points and goals scored was exceptional, from all four teams. Killeagh-Ita’s had to dig out their win against O’Neill’s in the opening game, as they trailed by 2-2 to 0-1 at one stage early on, and 2-2 to 0-4 at half-time. A succession of good points brought them back into the game in the second half before Cathal Fitzgibbon scored the crucial goal which gave us the victory by 1-9 to 2-4. On the other pitch Lisgoold had overcome Castlelyons under reiteoir Ger Scully’s watch. We swapped pitches, and referee James Hennessy came with us, to play Castlelyons, and we managed to get on top after a very entertaining game, winning by 7-7 to 3-5. Darragh O’Connor featured very well in this game with an excellent 1-1 in the second half. The only difference between the teams in this game was our ability to score goals at the right time, with Castlelyons showing great skill and commitment, and at least three of their players featuring as ‘laochra an lae’, were such honours to be awarded. Meanwhile, Lisgoold had beaten O’Neills by 1-6 to 1-3 to set up a showdown between the greens and blues. And what a showdown it was – Lisgoold took an early lead and led 1-6 to 1-2 at half-time, before our boys once again whittled down the lead, with Olan Broderick and Dara Motherway leading the scoring charts as they had done throughout the day, ably assisted by Richie Landers and Ryan McCarthy’s exceptionally accurate free-taking. At the final whistle, we held the slenderest of leads, 2-8 to 1-10, and as a result qualified for the final of this competition, to be held in Mallow on Saturday June 11th. This was a brilliant team effort throughout, with the manner of the comebacks greatly pleasing our managers Ger and Sean. Captaen an lae Aaron O’Connell was cool in the cúl, and his quick puck-outs set up many an attack. Daniel Lucey, Owen Cosgrove and George Sinclair covered very well in defence, while Ryan and Richie played at their usual high standard. David Kelly and Oisin McCarthy were all-action in the middle third, and the danger-men, Dara, Cathal, Olan and Darragh got the vital scores up front. We wish to thank our visiting teams for contributing positively to a great day’s hurling.

 

Team: Aaron O’Connell, Owen Cosgrove, Daniel Lucey, George Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Richie Landers, David Kelly, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Richie Landers, Darragh O’Connor, Dara Motherway, Olan Broderick.

 

Fé 10 Hurling Tournament, Ballyduff, Saturday 28th 2016

 

Congratulations to our Under 10 boys who played Lismore, Carrigtwohill and Fermoy in the prestigious Ballyduff Upper Tournament on Saturday last and won all three games. Sean Meade was the hero of the day in goals, with Ben Walsh, Cathal Landers, Michael O’Donovan, Barry Walsh, Jamie Hyde, Mark Buttimer, Fionn Murphy, Michael Doherty, Conor Murphy, Sean Lynch and Conor Burns doing very well outfield. We have qualified for the semi-final which will be held in Ballyduff on Saturday next, June 4th.

‘Killeagh/Ita’s under 9 boys played their first game of the season on Saturday last against St. Catherine’s. The boys braved the heavy showers and played extremely well, showing plenty of new skills.

Fé 12 Eastern A Football League Carrigtwohill 3-3, Killeagh-Ita’s 2-6

This was a cracking game of football from first whistle to last, played on a sunny Monday evening in Carrigtwohill. A first half score-fest saw both sides get excellent goals, while the second half saw both team add just one point each, yet the excitement never dipped. Carrig began at a frenetic pace, with three goals in five minutes, before our full back line of Dylan McCarthy, Conor Meade and Tommy Morrison took control and locked up! David Buckley had a storming first half, while Daniel Walsh was excellent in kicking three frees from the ground. In the corner Eric Millerick worked really well, and was rewarded with a goal on 12 minutes, while Evan Daly, Diarmuid Buckley and Danny Fitzgerald battled well throughout. Man of the match for Killeagh-Ita’s was surely Ben Budds who was unbeatable at centre-back in the second half, reading the game excellently, catching superbly, and distributing very effectively. A fair result when Pa Beausang’s final whistle blew.

Team: Colm Leahy, Dylan McCarthy, Conor Meade, Tommy Morrison, Evan Daly, Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Rory Motherway, Callum Martin White, Diarmuid Buckley, Danny Fitzgerald, Daniel Walsh, Eric Millerick, David Buckley, Ciaran Brennan.

Fé 12 Eastern A Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 5-8, Donoughmore 2-2

An interesting game of hurling which was beneficial to both sides was played in Páirc Uí Chinnéíde on Saturday last. Donoughmore came with lots of enthusiasm and worked hard from first minute to last, but our boys had a bit more skill and scoring power. Rory Motherway opened the scoring with a goal after 2 minutes, and Daniel Walsh added a second soon after. A long scoreless period followed with both defences on top, with Conor Meade, Ben Fogarty, Callum Martin White and Ben Budds busy for our team. Rory and Ciaran Brennan added nice points before half time to add to our advantage. The second half was very competitive with Donoughmore scoring 2-2, while our management team, Declan and Richie, experimented with positional changes throughout the team. Daniel Walsh scored three excellent points and Ciaran added another, while Ben and Callum scored a goal each. Well done boys!

Team: Pierse Geary, Tommy Morrison, Conor Meade, Ben Fogarty, Ben Budds, Callum Martin White, Rory Motherway, David Buckley, Darragh O’Leary, Daniel Walsh, Danny Fitzgerald, Ciaran Brennan, Eric Millerick, Daniel Griffin.

 

Fé 13 Premier 2 Hurling League Youghal 8-8, Killeagh-Ita’s 1-1

Like Larry Gogan’s Just-A-Minute Quiz, sometimes, they just don’t suit you! This was the case on a wet Friday evening at Magner’s Hill in Youghal, where an outstanding Youghal team easily brushed aside our lighter team, scoring freely throughout. Better luck next time, boys – not every team will be at Youghal’s level.

Team: Ben Budds, Rory Motherway, Jamie Fogarty, Ben Fogarty, Aaron Fitzgibbon, George Walsh, Rory Lynch, Colm Treacy, Evan Lane, David Buckley, Eoin Brenner, Daniel Walsh, Colm Landers, Conor Meade, Callum Martin White.

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Good performances but no points for Under 13s

Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Fé 13 Football Killeagh-Ita’s 2-5, Whitechurch 4-5

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Fé 13 Hurling Killeagh-Ita’s 2-5, Cobh 3-9

 

A busy week for our Under 13 boys saw them host two games, play well, but ultimately lose both to better teams. The football game v Whitechurch on Wednesday evening saw our opponents get off to a flier with a goal after 20 seconds, before we equalised with three points from Colm Treacy, Evan Lane and Eoin Brenner. Our defence got on top for a while with Jamie Fogarty, Rory Motherway and Paudie Mackey playing very well. Whitechurch came back again with 1-2 before Colm’s second point and a goal from Evan Lane left us trailing by 2-2 to 1-4 at half time. The second half saw Whitechurch’s defence dominate, and we only added 1-1 in the final five minutes, both scored by Jamie Fogarty who moved from full-back to full-forward in an attempt to rescue the game. Unfortunately, in spite of excellent defending from Ben Budds, Rory Lynch and goalkeeper Conor Meade, Whitechurch sneaked in for two goals in the same period, which gave them a comfortable two-goal cushion at Jim Daly’s final whistle.

Team: Conor Meade, Jack Flanagan, Jamie Fogarty, Rory Motherway, Rory Lynch, George Walsh, Paudie Mackey, David Buttimer, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Cormac Fitzpatrick, Colm Treacy, Eoin Brenner, Ben Budds, Evan Lane, David Buckley, Dale McMahon, Ciaran Brennan.

48 hours later, it was the small ball, and Cobh, with a few of our players unavoidably absent. Some exceptionally strong Cobh players dominated the centre-field throughout this game, yet our boys, physically smaller, battled right to the end. Two quick-fire goals from Conor Meade and David Buttimer, either side of a David Buckley point, gave us an unlikely lead after 20 minutes, 2-1 to 0-3, before a pointed free and a late Cobh goal levelled the game ag leath am. The second half saw action at both ends, with David Buckley’s two beautiful points and Eoin Brenner’s two frees our scores. Cobh managed to do better, with two further goals, despite excellent stops from Ben Budds and great clearing by Ben Fogarty, George Walsh and Colm Treacy. Well done to our boys who have two further hurling games this week, versus Carrigtwohill (Tuesday) and Youghal (Friday).

Team: Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Jamie Fogarty, Rory Motherway, Rory Lynch, George Walsh, Paudie Mackey, David Buttimer, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Conor Meade, Evan Lane, Eoin Brenner, David Buckley, Colm Treacy, Ciaran Brennan, Cormac Fitzpatrick.

 

U16s get first win at second attempt

Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Fé 16 Hurling Killeagh-Ita’s 2-19, Erins Own 3-3

Having been beaten by Kiltha Óg in their opening league game, our Under 16 hurlers were anxious to get back on the horse in their final game before the Junior Cert moratorium kicks in. Erins Own kindly agreed to concede home venue for this game on Thursday evening last. A quick goal after one minute gave our opponents a flying start, but our boys responded with three points from Padraig Leahy, and Olin Hennessy and new centre-forward Barry Motherway also pointing. Olin set up full-forward Olan Broderick for a goal before Erins Own got their second green flag. This left the score at 1-12 to 2-0 at half time, and we managed to contain the Erins Own boys reasonably well throughout the second half, with all of our defenders, including the replacements, continuing to keep the score down. Dara Motherway added a second goal while Brian Murphy made some excellent saves before being beaten in the final minute by a third Erins Own goal from centre-back Adam Murphy, one of their better players on the night. Best wishes to our ten Under 15 and Under 16 players who put the hurleys behind the door for a little while now as they concentrate on “the books” in preparation for June 8th and beyond.

Team: Brian Murphy, James Kent, Oisin McCarthy, Darragh Geary, Adrian Galvin, Richie Landers, Kieran Daly, David Kelly, Ryan McCarthy, Padraig Leahy, Barry Motherway, Richie Long, Olin Hennessy, Olan Broderick, Dara Motherway, Robert Sinclair, Owen Cosgrove, Danny Cunningham, Paul Delaney, Tommy Noonan.

Minors Get Back On Track

Carrigaline Court Premier 1 Minor Hurling Championship Round 1 Killeagh-Ita’s 1-19, Glen Rovers 3-10

It took guts, character and a little bit of luck for our minors to overturn a seven point deficit with twenty minutes to go in this Round 1 Minor Hurling Championship clash and come out on top winning by three points. Glen Rovers played exceptional hurling throughout this game, scoring two excellent second-half goals to lead by 3-9 to 0-11 after 39 minutes, having led by 1-8 to 0-9 after the first half, during which they had wind advantage. Signs were ominous at that stage, but luckily, a long-range Kevin Murphy free went all the way to the net and reduced the deficit to four. From here to the end of the game, our defence tightened up considerably with Christy Coughlan, Jack O’Rourke and Emmet Barron securing vital possession and driving out forcefully from defence. Keane Kelly Budds continued his all-action work in the midfield area, while the forward six kept up their workmate and earned important frees in the process. Five points from Kevin (three frees) and Killian Treacy (one from free, one from play) with only one in response levelled the game with nine minutes left. Aaron Walsh then hit over two monstrous 90-metre points to give us the lead for the first time since the 15th minute, before a second David Ogbebor point with time almost up gave us a cushion that would prevent a late catastrophe. Well done to the team for turning things around after the defeat to Sarsfields on Friday last. Our team go on to play Douglas in the quarter-final which will be played around July 14th, while Glen Rovers could still have quite a say in this championship as they take on Duhallow in Round 2.

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

Rory O’Connor Cup Thriller Goes To Extra Time

Killeagh-Ita’s 7-8, Askeaton-Ballysteen (Limerick) 4-11 (after extra time)

A thrilling Under 15 football match provided the climax of Lá Na gClub in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Sunday last. We welcomed Askeaton-Ballysteen from County Limerick and at stake was the Rory O’Connor Cup, with Rory’s nephew Darragh given the honour of captaining his team for the day. This game saw some excellent scores from both teams, with inspiring performances from full-back Daniel Lucey and midfielder Karl O’Toole helping our team to recover from a poor start to get in front near the final whistle. Our visitors led by 2-3 to 0-1 after ten minutes, by 3-6 to 1-4 at half time, and by 4-8 to 2-4 after 45 minutes. An exceptional scoring burst in the final quarter saw our boys lead by 5-7 to 4-8 with time almost up, but Askeaton replied with two points to square it up. So reiteoir Jim Daly needed extra time to decide who the winners of the Rory O’Connor Cup would be, and our boys finished stronger in this period, scoring 2-1 to Askeaton’s solitary point to retain the trophy for Killeagh-Ita’s, allowing Darragh O’Connor to receive the cup from his proud uncle John.

Team: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Daniel Lucey, Owen Cosgrove, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Karl O’Toole, David Kelly, Paul Delaney, Richie Landers, Olan Broderick, Dara Motherway, Oisin McCarthy, Darragh O’Connor. Subs: Brian Murphy, Christian Coughlan, Tommy Noonan, David Collins.

 

U14 Hurling League

Kiltha Óg deny Killeagh Ita’s league points 7-07 – 5-16

Killeagh Ita’s welcomed Kiltha Óg to Pairc Ui Chinneide on Monday 2nd for our first game in the hurling league. Kiltha Óg were first to score and had two points registered when Ben scored a point for us. Kiltha Óg scored the next 1-04 before Ciaran Leahy scored a point. Both teams had traded points when Killeagh Ita’s started to dominate and held Kiltha Óg scoreless while we scored 2-02. At half time we were ahead on a scoreline of 3-06 to 1-07. When play resumed it was Kiltha Óg who dominated and scored 2-06 before they also scored an own goal to kick start our second half scoring. The second half was nail biting with the lead changing with each score. Ciaran O Rourke scored a goal to level the game on 5-07 (22) to 3-13(22). Kiltha Óg scored next to go ahead however Ben replied by scoring a goal, we were ahead by two points. Kiltha Óg not to be out done found the back of our net and took the lead once more. Killeagh Ita’s got their noses ahead when Ben scored another goal before being substituted due to injury. Kiltha Óg slotted two points over the bar, the score was level once more with full time fast approaching however Kiltha Óg had the final say with one more goal and when the final whistle went Killeagh Ita’s were denied any league points. There was a great display of hurling from Killeagh Ita’s with an spectacular 7 -07 scored and were very unlucky not to share the spoils on the night. Well done to all.

Team: G Walsh, C Treacy, J Fogarty, P Landers, D Collins, B Murphy, R Treacy, P Kent, C Coughlan, B O Connor, C O Rourke, R Bernard, D Doherty, C Leahy, R Farquhar, E Brenner, T McCarthy

 

A Feast of Hurling as Killeagh Hosts Feile

Saturday 7th May saw Pairc Ui Chinneide host Cobh, Fermoy, Carrigaline, Sars, Blackrock and Killeagh Ita’s competing for the opportunity to represent their County in this year’s hurling Feile. The morning was wet and dreary but the welcome in Killeagh was exceptionally warm. Anybody who braved the elements and came down to support the hurlers were served up not only fantastic hurling but a huge array of refreshments. Thank you to everybody who made this such a wonderful event.

 

Killeagh Ita’s opening game saw us take on Cobh. We were first out of the blocks with a well taken free from Ben landing in the back of the goal, Cobh were quick to reply with 3 point however David Collins was not going to let Cobh get ahead of us and slotted the ball over the bar. Just before the half time whistle sounded Ryan Farquhar with ball in hand and goal on his mind was fouled enroute to a certain goal. The resulting penalty was taken by Ben and he left the goalie with no chance and at half time the score read 2-01 to 0-03. Killeagh Ita’s continued to dominate in the second half with Ben scoring two goals and David Collins scoring another. When the full time whistle sounded Killeagh Ita’s headed for the dressing room with a comfortable 5-.03 to 2-03 win.

 

Next out on the Main Pitch to take on our boys was Blackrock. Killeagh Ita’s were first to score again in our second game when Ben converted a free to a point. Our boys gave Blackrock no chance to settle as Ciaran O Rourke put us 1-01 ahead. Blackrock scored the next two points one from a free and one from a 65. We replied with two points and at half time the score read 1-.03 to 0-02. With our fantastic defence Blackrock were held scoreless in the second half and when the Reiteoir blow for full time the score was 1–06 to 0-02.

 

With two wins under our belts we were up against Carrigaline in the semi-final. This was a much tighter game and we secured a win by the narrowest of margins. Carrigaline were first to score when they scored a point from play but Ryan Farquhar was quick to reply. We traded one more point but Killeagh Ita’s had the last say and at half time we were ahead with 0-02 to 0-03. The second half saw both teams scoring two points apiece and it was with much relief the full time whistle sounded and our boys could head for the dressing rooms for a well-deserved rest and to prepare for the final against Sars. 

 

Our warriors took to the pitch and were very focused on the task in hand. Sars got the dream start and went a goal ahead. There is great credit due to our boys who despite being tired, cold and wet refused to give up and when awarded a free Ben put it over the bar. At half time there was nothing between the two teams as Ciaran O Rourke had scored a goal to put us a point ahead but unfortunately not for long as Sars levelled the score. We were very unlucky in the second half not to build on our first half scores. Sars on the other hand managed to score two points one from a free and one from play. This defeat meant our Féile dream was over however this was a wonderful morning of hurling and there is great credit due to the entire panel of players who lined out for Killeagh Ita’s.

Feile Panel: C Coughlan, D Coleman, C O Rourke, P Landers, P Kent, E Lane, B Murphy, C Leahy, D Collins, B O’Connor, R Treacy, R Bernard, G Walsh, D Doherty , C Treacy, T McCarthy, D Scully, B Budds, E Brenner, J Fogarty, R Farquhar.

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

U/12 ‘A’ Hurling League; Killeagh-Ita’s v Lisgoold in Killeagh

Team: Dylan McCarthy, Daniel Walsh, David Buckley, Tommy Noonan, Rory Motherway, Danny Fitzgerald, Eric Millerick, Ben Fogarty (C), Colm Leahy, Pierce Geary, Conor Meade, Ciaran Brennan, Evan Daly, Ben Budds and Callum Martin White.

 

Lisgoold got off to a good start with the wind in their favour with a 2 goal lead followed by 3 points. Daniel Walsh was the first to score for Killeagh-Ita’s with 1 goal and added a further point a minute later. Lisgoold went on to score another 2 goals and 3 points in the 1st half.

 

The second half was a better one for the Killeagh-Ita’s boys with another 3 goals and 3 points this time from Colum Leahy, followed by a further 2 points from Daniel Walsh. David Buckley and Callum Martin White also added a point each to the Killeagh-Ita’s tally.  

 

Final score was Lisgoold 5.12 and Killeagh-Ita’s 4.8. A great finish from the Killeagh-Ita’s team who had lots of scores in the 2nd half but this time not enough to catch up. Well done boys.  

U14 footballers hold off St Colmans to secure league points

Rebel Óg Eastern Fe 14 A Football League. Killeagh-Ita’s 5-5 St Colmans 2-9

Wednesday 27th April saw our footballers travel to Cloyne to take on St Colmans in our fourth match of this league campaign. This was definitely the clichéd game of two halves; Killeagh-Ita’s scored an impressive 5-5 in the first half while St Colmans went to the dugout after registering 1-2. Play resumed with Killeagh-Ita’s playing without the benefit of the breeze and despite numerous attempts failed to build on their first half score. St Colmans were pressing hard to score and slotted the football over the cross bar several times. With the match heading towards the full time whistle and Killeagh-Ita’s gallantly defending their goal mouth the reiteoir awarded a penalty to St Colmans. Despite the best efforts of our goalie the well taken penalty was scored . It was with much relief to both players and supporters that the final whistle blew and we could take shelter from the biting cold breeze. There is great credit due to our young footballers who took to the pitch and played some fantastic football while remaining disciplined and focused. Well done players and mentors. Team: C Coughlan, D Coleman, Jamie Fogarty, C O’Rourke, P Landers, P Kent, E Lane, B Murphy, C Leahy, D Collins, B O’Connor, R Treacy, R Bernard, G Walsh, D Doherty. Subs A Fitzgibbon, C Treacy, T McCarthy

Minors Beaten in Championship Opener

Rebel Óg Carrigaline Court Premier 1 Minor Hurling Championship

Sarsfields 2-15, Killeagh-Ita’s 2-5

No joy for our minor hurlers on an evening of horrible hailstones which made skilful hurling very difficult for the players on the pitch in this preliminary round championship opener. Our team got off to a flier with two points inside the first minute – Killian Treacy winning the sliotar from the throw-in and firing over, and Sean Walsh adding a second after our hard work dispossessed Sarsfields’ defenders from the immediate puck out. Killian added a free on five minutes and it looked as if a shock might be on the cards against this ‘all-conquering’ Sars team. Sars scored the next four points between minute 7 and 14 (although they were made to work hard for them, before Killian equalised with another free. Our defenders were fighting heroically for every ball, with Dylan Hogan and Jamie Landers very effective on the right wing, and we were unlucky when what appeared to be a valid point from Aaron Walsh, signalled by the umpires, was waved wide by reiteoir Pat Lyons. In the remaining ten minutes, Sarsfields added three points without reply, and, crucially, a goal in the 25th minute from dangerous full-forward Jack O’Connor. This gave them a 1-7 to 0-4 lead ag leath-am. The second half began with a savage downpour of hailstone, and an ideal return to action for our team, with Aaron Walsh lobbing the Sars goalkeeper for a spectacular goal after just one minute to give us renewed hope. However, Sars turned the screw and, apart from a Shane Kearney point, they hit over the next five points and when O’Connor turned and finished his second goal to the far left corner of the net, it was game over. Our boys kept battling, with Keane Kelly Budds, Killian Treacy, Christy Coughlan and others working tirelessly to the end. A just reward arrived on 52 minutes when Aaron whipped in a second goal, but the gap was too wide, and ag an séideadh deiridh, bhí an bua ag na Sarséalaigh, 2-15 i gcoinne 2-5. It’s a quick turnaround now to our next game, as we play the mighty Glen Rovers on Wednesday 4th May in Ballinacurra at 7.15 p.m. please be there to support our boys!

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Dylan Hogan, Jack O’Rourke, Emmet Barron, Jamie Landers, Kevin Murphy, Christy Coughlan, David Ogbebor, Keane Kelly Budds, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Aaron Walsh (2-0), Sean Walsh (0-1), Shane Kearney (0-1), Killian Treacy (0-3, 0-2f), Andrew Leahy. Subs: Cathal Deane, Padraig Leahy, Richie Long, Barry Motherway, Adrian Galvin.

U12s get back on the horse quickly

Having been beaten by Lisgoold on Monday evening in the Fé 12 Hurling League (5-11 to 4-8), our U12 team got back to winning ways with a comprehensive win over Blarney under the shadow of the Blarney Stone on Thursday evening. This was an excellent performance from our full team, with Danny Fitzgerald, Evan Daly, Rory Motherway, Ben Budds and Callum Martin White very bust around the field, well supported by the rest of the team. Scorers in a comprehensive victory were Darragh O’Leary, Tommy Morrison, Callum, Daniel Walsh, Colm Leahy, Ben, Darragh O’Leary and Danny. Well done boys!

Healthy Club Walkers and Runners Get Legs Moving

A historic evening on Tuesday last, April 26th, as our Healthy Club Project, a joint initiative between all four clubs who use Páirc Uí Chinnéide (Killeagh GAA, Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA, Inch Rovers and Killeagh Camogie) began in earnest with our first walking group getting underway. One of our Project Plans is to encourage people of all ages to become more active, and one of our first actions was to set up a “Walking and Talking” group. Tuesday evenings are very busy in Páirc Uí Chinnéide, so it was decided to use this time to encourage mums, dads, grandparents and children of all ages to get walking. Two routes have been outlined in the pitch – an inner circuit of 500 m around the main pitch, and an outer circuit of 1 km around the perimeter of the whole grounds. Over 30 people of all ages (under 1 to over 70!) took off for the initial walk at 6. 15 p.m. with much enthusiasm, choosing the inner circuit to keep a watchful eye on the almost 100 boys – Under 6’s, 7’s, 8’s and 9’s – training within. The “Walking and Talking” group continues every Tuesday from 6.00 on, bring your walking shoes, enthusiasm, and a few words for your fellow walkers!

Our “Run4Fun” group began their weekly session on Saturday morning in Glenbower Wood, led by Kieran Scully. Numbers were small for the first week, but hopefully, we will enlist some more beginner and established runners to join in one of the most beautiful running spots in Ireland. Every Saturday, 9.00am

Clubs Nursery brings in the crowds

If you wanted to see what unbridled enthusiasm and excitement looks like, Saturday at noon in Pairc Uí Chinnéide was the place to be. Our first Clubs Nursery of 2016 (also part of our Healthy Club Project) saw 43 children aged 3, 4 and 5 run, jump, hop and skip around the place for 45 minutes of fun, fun, fun. We owe a word of thanks to all those who helped on the day – moms, dads, siblings and others. Its clear many hands will be needed to make light work of this bunch. Every Saturday, 12.00 noon – join the fun!

Under 12 hurlers convincing winners in opening game

Fé 12 Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Hurling Killeagh-Ita’s v Erins Own

We welcomed Erins Own U12 hurling team to Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Monday April 18th. A well-contested first quarter saw both defences on top with just two early points for our boys from Daniel Walsh’s free and Colm Leahy. Our full-back line of Danny Fitzgerald, Conor Meade and Daniel Griffin came under sustained pressure but both this line and cúl báire Pierse Geary dealt with everything that came at them. However, a deserved goal eventually came on the 16th minute for Erins Own and their forwards were unlucky not to add more. In the final five minutes of the half, two more goals from Colm and another point from Daniel gave us a flattering 3-4 to 1-0 lead at half time. The second half saw further domination from our forwards, and the lead gave bainisteoir Adrian an opportunity to move players around in different positions. Ben Budds got on the score sheet and David Buckley (point) and Ben Fogarty (goal) got late scores to give our team a convincing win in the end. Well done to the Erins Own team for showing great heart right to the end, with a special mention to their ‘Killeagh-connected’ player, skilful and stylish Shane Irwin, who had an excellent game from start to finish.

Team: Pierse Geary, Danny Fitzgerald, Conor Meade, Daniel Griffin, Callum Martin-White, David Buckley, Evan Daly, Rory Motherway, Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Darragh O’Leary, Daniel Walsh, Eric Millerick, Colm Leahy, Ciaran Brennan.

Under 16 footballers have a 48-hour double

Fé 16 Rebel Óg Eastern B Football Bishopstown 2-5, Killeagh-Ita’s 5-6

Fé 16 Rebel Óg Eastern B Football Killeagh-Ita’s 6-7, Fr. O’Neills 5-7

A very successful week for our Under 16 footballers saw them gain maximum league points from Thursday night’s trip to Bishopstown to play their second string, and the visit of our Fr. O’Neills neighbours on Saturday afternoon to Páirc Uí Chinnéide. The Bishopstown game was that clichéd ‘game of two halves’ with a wind and a slope contributing to the home team’s domination in the first half, leading by 1-5 to 0-2 at the break. Astute changes by Tom and Colm at the break had an immediate impact on the restart, with Richie Landers marking his introduction at corner-forward with a quick goal. When Adrian Galvin goaled within three minutes, we were level, and our domination around the middle third, with Padraig Leahy, Dylan Hogan and Richie Long very busy, saw us add further goals from Barry Motherway and a brace from Richie giving him his hat-trick. In the final few minutes Bishopstown replied with a goal to leave the final score 5-6 to 2-5 in our favour.

Less than 48 hours later, our neighbours Fr. O’Neills arrived in Páirc Uí Chinnéide to play Round 4 of the Football League. Richie Landers replaced the injured Padraig Leahy in the only change to the starting fifteen. This was a real ‘all-out attack’ game, or perhaps ‘no-defence’ game, with both teams scoring some excellent goals, but also benefitting from some obvious errors in the defences of their opponents. A slow beginning on the scoreboard saw O’Neills lead by 0-2 to 0-1 after the first quarter, although we had hit both the crossbar and the post in that time. Two quick-fire goals from Richie Landers and a Jack Wyse bullet to the roof of the net, along with two points from Richie, gave us a 2-3 to 0-2 lead, before our defence took their half-time break. Trouble is, it wasn’t yet half-time, with only 26 minutes gone on referee Pa Beausang’s clock. In that crazy four minutes before half-time, we conceded a remarkable 3-2, leaving our mentors and supporters scratching their heads wondering how we had contrived to turn a seven point lead into a four point deficit so quickly. The likes of it hadn’t been seen since Offaly’s mugging of Limerick in the 1994 All-Ireland Final! The half-time talk from Tom and Colm galvanised our team who improved immeasurably at the back after half-time, and after Richie Long goaled on 39 minutes, we were back in front, 3-5 to 3-4. O’Neills got their first point of the second half mid-way through, and then their defence took their time out, allowing our forwards to score three quick goals from Adrian Galvin, Richie Long and Paul Delaney. By this time, with eight minutes to go, we led by 6-7 to 3-4 and the game looked done and dusted. However, we again took our foot off the gas, leaking 2-2 in the last eight minutes, and the three minutes of additional time seemed to stretch on for ever. Eventually, we suppressed the final attack to hold on and preserve our 100% record. Well done to the full panel of players for a great effort over the two games, with 24 players used in all.

Team: Olin Hennessy, Daragh Geary, Daniel Lucey, James Kent, Kieran Daly, Dylan Hogan, Ryan McCarthy, Barry Motherway, Padraig Leahy, Oisin McCarthy, Adrian Galvin, David Kelly, Richie Long, Jack Wyse, Andrew Foley.

Bad Night at the Office For Minor Hurlers

Rebel Óg Premier 1 Hurling League Douglas 2-15, Killeagh-Ita’s 2-10

Just a week out from championship, and a big wake-up call for our minor hurlers who suffered their first loss in the league in a disappointing performance in Douglas on Friday night. Four players were unavailable for a variety of reasons, stretching our panel’s resources, yet this was still a sub-par effort, especially in the closing five minutes of the first half, conceding 2-2 to trail by 2-11 to 1-3, having scored our goal through Shane Kearney after just three minutes. The dressing down at half-time did reap some rewards in the second half, with improved effort throughout the field giving a better look to the scoreboard. Highlights were a goal from Killian Treacy, finishing off a fine move all the way out of defence involving five players, and an excellent Eoin Fitzgibbon run and point from the right wing. Much improvement required for our championship opener v Sarsfields in Cobh on Friday next, April 29th at 7.00 p.m.

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Dylan Hogan, Jack O’Rourke, Barry Motherway, Jamie Landers, Kevin Murphy, Cathal Deane, Christy Coughlan, Keane Kelly Budds, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Andrew Leahy, Padraig Leahy, Shane Kearney, Killian Treacy, Aaron Walsh. Subs: Richie Long, Adrian Galvin.

U13s open with a win, just!

Rebel Óg Fé 13 Premier 2 Hurling League Erin’s Own 0-10, Killeagh-Ita’s 4-3

It was a lucky win for our Under 13 hurlers in their opening game of this year’s hurling league in Caherlag on Sunday April 24th. Both teams played excellent hurling in patches, with Erin’s Own probably more consistent over the hour. Nevertheless, two excellent David Buckley goals in the first half (10th and 13th minutes) gave us a three point lead at the break (2-2 to 0-5). Two quick-fire goals just after half-time from a George Walsh free and Callum Martin White (after a great shot from Ciaran Brennan was excellently saved) gave us a cushion of 4-2 to 0-5. We only added one more point, from a long distance free by George, while Erin’s Own added on five more points. Were it not for a brilliant save from the same David Buckley (cúl báire for second half) and a penalty that went over rather than under the bar, it could have been victory for our hosts. Well done to our team who did what needed to be done to get the points, with Jamie Fogarty outstanding at full back, batting and clearing away everything that came his way.

Team: Conor Meade, Rory Motherway, Jamie Fogarty, Jack Flanagan, Rory Lynch, George Walsh, Padraig Mackey, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Evan Lane, David Buttimer, Colm Treacy, Eoin Brenner, Ben Fogarty, David Buckley, Daniel Walsh, Ciaran Brennan, Callum Martin White.

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Peaceful Pilmore Provides Pitch and Point

Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Fé 13 Football League Killeagh-Ita’s 3-6, Inniscarra 2-9

After Sunday’s deluge and storm, Páirc Uí Ghrifín in Pilmore was called into action for our Under 13 footballers’ opening league game against Inniscarra on Monday evening last, with all three pitches in Páirc Uí Chinnéide not fit for games. The calm evening and the peaceful surroundings were in keeping with the mood of the players and their mentors and supporters, who all enjoyed a fantastic game of football under the charge of reiteoir Mary Swayne. It didn’t appear to look so appealing for our boys after six minutes, with Inniscarra charging out of the blocks and banging in two goals in quick succession. We settled, slowly, with Eoin Brenner kicking two points from frees, and by the 19th minute we had levelled matters (2-2 each) with Dale McMahon and Conor Meade getting the goals. Conor’s goal was an excellent team move with Eoin Brenner’s knock-down allowing Conor to finish. A further point apiece (ours a fine effort from Evan Lane) left the teams level at half time. Paudie Mackey, Colm Treacy, George Walsh, Rory Lynch and Cormac Fitzpatrick were among our leading players in this half. The second half saw our boys dominate the first five minutes but unfortunately we failed to add to our score, and we were to rue our missed chances as Inniscarra took over for the next ten minutes, kicking four points in a row to turn the screw. David Buckley kicked over to reduce the deficit, and then Daniel Walsh goaled to level. With ten minutes to go, Jamie Fogarty kicked us into the lead, but Inniscarra came back and added two further points which swung the pendulum in their direction. As our defenders repelled further attacks, the ball was worked carefully up to the Inniscarra danger area, and when a free was awarded on the 20 metre line, Eoin Brenner kept his nerve to kick the levelling score. A fair result to a most entertaining game as the sun went down behind us! Many thanks to the St. Ita’s club for making their pitch available at short notice, and in particular to Denis Doherty for preparing the pitch in advance of the game.

Team: Callum Martin White, Jack Flanagan, Jamie Fogarty, Ben Budds, Paudie Mackey, George Walsh, Rory Lynch, Evan Lane, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Dale McMahon, Colm Treacy, David Buttimer, Eoin Brenner, Conor Meade, Cormac Fitzpatrick. Subs: Daniel Walsh, David Buckley, Ben Fogarty, Rory Motherway.

 

Minor Hurlers Win Again

Premier 1 Minor Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 1-14, Midleton 2-8

A good second-half performance gave our minors their second win of the league against a strong Midleton team in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Wednesday last. This was a good quality game which entertained the supporters from Killeagh and Midleton as well as some interested Glanmire observers. Scores were at a premium in the first half with just six points shared between the teams for 28 minutes – Aaron Walsh’s brace and a ’65 from Killian Treacy being our scores. Killian’s free gave us the lead for the fourth time on 29 minutes but we were rocked by a goal and a point from Midleton just before half-time which left us trailing by 1-4 to 0-4 on Brian Murphy’s half-time whistle. The second half saw our defensive work continue throughout the pitch, while our forwards began to get on the ball and convert more scores. Five points in the first eight minutes (three from Killian’s frees, one each from Aaron and Sean Walsh) extended our lead to four as Midleton were restricted to just one in reply. Further points from Killian (one each from play and from a free) were cancelled out by Midleton scores, before a fine goal from Andrew Leahy pushed us further ahead – 1- 11 to 1-7 with eight minutes left. This lead was far from comfortable, however, and our defence had to maintain their discipline and alertness to prevent Midleton on numerous occasions. Andrew’s point on fifty six minutes was wedged between two frees from Kevin Murphy (very dominant throughout at centre-back) and Killian. Our impressive full-back line of Dylan Hogan, Jack O’Rourke and Emmet Barron continued their nobody-through policy for the final minutes but Midleton came right back into it with a point and a goal, just like the first half, at the very end, leaving us with a dangerous two-point lead. Thankfully a final free from Killian settled the nerves, giving us a deserved victory ag deireadh an chluiche. League match number 3 is away to Douglas on Friday 22nd, followed by championship against Sarsfields on April 29th. Clock is ticking!

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

 

No joy for Under 16s on first day out

Rebel Óg Eastern A Fé 16 Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 3-10, Kiltha Óg 3-18

A high-scoring game gave supporters of both teams great thrills on Thursday evening last in Páirc Uí Chinnéide, but unfortunately for our boys, Kiltha Óg scored more than we did and thus came away with the points. It looked promising for us in the first few minutes as Richie Landers (2) and Richie Long gave us a three point lead. Kiltha got on the scoreboard with two frees and one from play, and by nineteen minutes we held a 7-5 lead, with points from Padraig Leahy (2) and a brace from Richie Long. Adrian Galvin was hurling excellent ball on the left wing, while Kieran Daly was mopping up everything in his right corner. We were then rocked by an excellent first goal of two from Kiltha full-forward Kyle Quinn-Waites before Padraig Leahy replied with an impressive green flag finish for us. Kiltha took control of the final five minutes, scoring 1-2 without reply to lead 2-8 to 1-7 at half-time. The second half saw some positional changes in our side which shored up some gaps but created gaps in other areas. Kiltha continued to dominate throughout the field, with Daragh Moran and Joe Stack on opposite ‘40s leading their charge. Nonetheless our boys kept battling away with Richie Long and Olan Broderick scoring two great goals, although Kiltha scored the next point immediately after each goal to quash our fight back. With two minutes to go we bombarded the Kiltha goal line but could not get the fourth goal that might have salvaged a draw, and with the final play, Kiltha attacked at the other end and goaled to give them a rather flattering eight point victory at referee Michael Mulry’s final whistle.

Team: Dara Motherway, Paul Delaney, Darragh Geary, Kieran Daly, Ryan McCarthy, Dylan Hogan, Adrian Galvin, David Kelly, Barry Motherway, Richie Long, Jack Wyse, Padraig Leahy, Olin Hennessy, Richie Landers, Olan Broderick. Subs used: Robert Sinclair, Owen Cosgrove, Brian Murphy, Danny Cunningham, Cathal Fitzgibbon.

 

U15s finish strongly to win

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Fé 15 Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 3-11, Ballygarvan 1-11

An excellent game of hurling on Sunday afternoon last saw our Under 15 team get a late scoring burst of 1-3 in the final five minutes to pip Ballygarvan in Round 2 of the league. Both teams were missing key players, with our full-back line depleted through injury. George Sinclair and Oisin McCarthy stepped into the breach and performed admirably throughout, alongside the ever consistent Paul Delaney. Having started in a whirlwind with a goal by Ben O’Connor in the first minute, we promptly fell asleep for fifteen minutes, allowing Ballygarvan to go ahead by the 18th minute with five points, to which we only offered one Olan Broderick point in reply. However, Ben’s second goal, following a flick on from Dara Motherway, gave us the unusual score of 2-1, and two further points from Dara and Richie Landers gave us a three point cushion – 2-3 to 0-6 at Jim Daly’s half-time whistle. The second half saw us in command for the first ten minutes with Ben, Dara and Olan all adding scores to give us a 2-8 to 0-8 lead. The next fifteen minutes saw another hibernation period for our team, as we went scoreless while Ballygarvan scored 1-3 to equalise with two minutes left. Late points from Ben and Olan and a fine goal from Dara in added time gave us a flattering cushion on the final whistle – 3-11 to 1-11. Next up is a trip to Valley Rovers on Saturday April 30th.

Team: Brian Murphy, George Sinclair, Oisin McCarthy, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Richie Landers, David Kelly, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Dara Motherway, Olan Broderick, Owen Cosgrove, Aaron O’Connell, Ben O’Connor, Darragh O’Connor. Subs: Christian Coughlan, Robbie Treacy, Ciaran O’Rourke.
