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

Cork SHC 1st Round: Killeagh 2-08 Midleton 0-20
The Cork SHC first round meeting against Midleton took place in Castlemartyr on Sunday last. The game started under dry but windy conditions and it finished as the rain started to come down after a fine performance by our seniors against one of this years favourites for the competition. Killeagh got off to the ideal start against the strong wind with a nice opening point from play by Dinny Walsh wearing the number 10 shirt after only 20 seconds on the clock. Midleton scored their first and equalising point from play after two minutes. Midleton went ahead on five minutes with a pointed free but Killeagh free taker Dan Landers quickly brought the scores back level with his point from a free. Over the next five minutes Midleton scored four points without reply to lead the game on a score of six points to two after ten minutes of play. However a minute later Andy Walsh collected the ball from a great Killeagh puckout and sauntered forward on a solo run to score a great goal to bring Killeagh right back into the game. Eoin Keniry got on the scoreboard when he added to the Killeagh score after thirteen minutes with a good point from play out on the wing to bring the sides level on a score of 1-03 to 0-06. Both teams exchanged a couple of wides and over the next sixteen minutes Midleton dominated the scoring by adding six points to their tally to lead on a score of 0-12 to 1-3. Shane Smiddy scored the final point of the half with a well taken point from play to leave Killeagh trailing by five points going in at half-time. The second half got underway with Killeagh playing with the wind behind them but, as in the first half, it was the team playing against the wind who scored first with a point from the Midleton midfielder. Midleton then scored two more points to stay well ahead by eight points and it was not until the fifteenth minute of the second half when Killeagh got their first score. It was a well taken point from full forward David Cahill from out on the wing. Midleton replied immediately to maintain an eight point difference. After seventeen minutes Killeagh goalkeeper Bernard Rochford struck a sweet free in his own half to add a point to the Killeagh scoreline. He stepped forward again five minutes later to land another point from inside his own half for Killeagh after Midleton had pointed from play. With eight minutes remaining the score was 0-17 to 1-07 in favour of Midleton. Midleton scored another point from play after the puckout to go ahead by eight points but from the resulting restart Killeagh won a free in a dangerous position in front of the Midleton goal. Up stepped Dan Landers and he drove the ball low and to the net to leave the scoreboard reading 0-18 to 2-07 with just over six minutes remaining. However Midleton had the better of the final exchanges and scored two points to Killeagh’s one point. The final point of the game came from full forward David Cahill to leave the final score reading Killeagh 2-08 to Midletons 0-20. Next up for Killeagh in the Cork SHC is the second round tie against Youghal.

Cork Panels for Summer Programme:
Well done to the following players who have been selected for the Cork U14, U15, U16 & U17 Summer Programme: U14 hurling is Ryan McCarthy, U15 hurling is Padraig Leahy, U16 hurling is Keane Kelly Budds and at U17 hurling are Kevin Murphy, Jack O’Rourke, Andrew Leahy and Christy Coughlan.
Under 11s have mixed fortunes
Our Under 11 squad had a busy week with a hurling game away to St. Colman’s on Tuesday evening in Shanagarry and a football game against neighbours Kiltha Óg on Saturday afternoon in Killeagh. The hurling game was a close affair where our boys were two goals behind after six minutes, but once they began playing they dominated the rest of the game, and with Daniel Walsh banging in the goals, we prevailed by 6-1 to 3-1. Ben Budds and Rory Motherway were very busy in midfield while David Buckley had a terrific second half. Unfortunately for the squad Daniel, David and Ben Fogarty were unavailable for the football game on Saturday, along with some of the Under 10s who normally step up. This meant that we played our 11-a-side game with two Under 9 players, Sean Meade and Fionn Murphy, both of whom were excellent. However, this is a fine Kiltha team and even with our three additional players it’s arguable whether or not we would have won the game. Kiltha kicked some fine points on their way to a 3-10 to 3-1 win, but full credit to our team who battled away until the end, with Conor Meade, Evan Daly and Darragh O’Leary shining, and Danny Fitzgerald scoring a nice goal.
Hurling Team: Dylan McCarthy, Ciaran Brennan, Darragh O’Leary, Diarmuid Buckley, Conor Meade, Evan Daly, Rory Motherway, Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Danny Fitzgerald, Daniel Walsh, David Buckley, Jack O’Connor. Kieran O’Brien, Fionn Murphy and Sean Meade played in the football game.

Juvenile Notes:
Under 16 Football Update
Our Under 16 footballers played two more games in the Eastern A Football League in the past week. A close encounter with Fr. O’Neills on Wednesday evening in Ahavine ended with the home side winning by 2-7 to 2-4, although if both sides had brought their shooting boots the scoreline would surely have been much bigger and could even have ended in our favour. Dylan Hogan was our star player at full back, while Olin Hennessy made some great saves in goal. On Sunday evening Sliabh Rua came to Páirc Uí Chinnéide for a match played in the worst weather conditions of the whole weekend, with driving wind and rain spoiling the game for players and the few hardy spectators who braved the elements. Regardless of weather Sliabh Rua were the much better side, but they also seemed to adapt better to the conditions and finished well ahead by 5-10 to 1-2, with Fionn McDonnell top scoring on 1-1. This game marked Padraig McCarthy’s first start after his return and he gave an excellent performance in limiting the damage caused by Sliabh Rua’s most dangerous forward.
Panel: Olin Hennessy, Kieran Daly, Dylan Hogan, Liam McCarthy, Barry Motherway, Shane Kearney, Padraig Leahy, Jamie Landers, Richie Long, Adrian Galvin, Keane Kelly Budds, Sean Broderick, Fionn McDonnell, Jamie Clifford, Jack Wyse, Sean Walsh, Padraig McCarthy, James Kent, Andrew Foley, Darragh Geary

U14
Fé 14 Premier 2 Hurling Championship Killeagh-Ita’s 3-12, Eire Óg 1-10
Killeagh-Ita’s Under 14 boys successfully negotiated a tricky first round encounter in the Rebel Óg Premier 2 Hurling Championship in Ballinure last Saturday afternoon, eventually prevailing over a hard-working Éire Óg side. Éire Óg were fast out of the blocks with a point after just 17 seconds, but Ben O’Connor soon got on top of his man with two points in the first four minutes. When he rattled a goal three minutes later, it gave us the upper hand, and Olan Broderick quickly added a point from a free. With our backs now dominant and Karl O’Toole, Oisin McCarthy and David Kelly moving the ball in quickly to the forwards, we had a purple patch with Olan scoring a fine point off his right side and then finishing a fine team move to the net. When Dara Motherway got the first of his three points after seventeen minutes, we led by 2-5 to 0-1 and looked comfortable. Our comfort didn’t last long, however, as Eire Óg took control with a goal from their talented full-forward. Four points from play reduced our lead, as our scores dried up bar a Ryan McCarthy free. This left us clinging uneasily to a four point lead at half time – 2-6 to 1-5. The second half saw Éire Óg continue to put pressure on our defence where all six backs Paul, Cian, Danny, Richie, Ryan and Robert worked their socks off to soak the pressure, while Robbie Treacy was cool as a cucumber sa chúl. By forty three minutes both sides had added three points each but two points from Ben gave us a bit of breathing space, before a Daniel Lucey goal (reward for his hard work and distribution) with eight minutes left finally pushed the game beyond the reach of our opponents. Next up it’s the winners of Carrigaline or Bishopstown so hopefully we can continue our good run of form.
Team: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy (0-2f), Richie Landers, Oisin McCarthy, Karl O’Toole, Cathal FItzgibbon, David Kelly, Olan Broderick (1-3), Ben O’Connor (1-4), Daniel Lucey (1-0), Dara Motherway (0-3), Ciaran Leahy, Christian Coughlan, Darragh O’Connor, Owen Cosgrove, Aaron O’Connell, George Sinclair, Tommy Noonan, Brian Murphy.[CM]

Club Nursery Getting Better All The Time
Modifying the famous line “if you build it they will come” from “Field Of Dreams”, in our case it’s “if you run it they will come” which seems to apply. We’ve had three Saturdays now with our young 4 and 5 year olds in our Club Nursery, (and the odd 3-year old joining in too!) and our numbers are increasing week by week, with over thirty boys and girls now joined this new venture. Sessions will continue every Saturday for the months of May and June, so if you have a young boy or girl who is 4, 5 or nearly 4 (that ‘nearly’ is very important at that age!), bring them along from 12.15 to 1.00 p.m. any Saturday you can for some fun and games and a chance to make new friends.[CM]

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).

Minors
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
Below is pic of our U10 boys who recently played St. Colmans.

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]

Minors shine with an impressive win
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]
