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. Subs: Cathal Fitzgibbon, Paul Delaney, Richie Landers, Owen Cosgrove, Darragh O’Connor, Olan Broderick, Robert Sinclair, George Sinclair, Karl O’Toole.

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.

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.

Minor Hurlers Get Off To Winning Start

Premier 1 Minor Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 6-15, Glen Rovers 0-9

A whirlwind start, which yielded four goals (two lucky, two of excellent quality) in the first ten minutes, laid the foundation for a winning start for our minor hurlers in the Premier 1 league game played in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Saturday 9th April. Kevin Murphy, David Ogbebor, Andrew Leahy and Killian Treacy were the early goalscorers, but from here on this game was very even with Glen Rovers playing with consistent effort throughout the game, finishing both halves with some fine points. Killian Treacy was our chief scorer, with David, Andrew, Aaron Walsh and Sean Walsh also contributing good points, while Jack O’Rourke and Kevin Murphy mopped up almost every ball that came through the centre of our defence. Bainisteoir Brian Barry was pleased with this opening day win but further challenges lie ahead, with league games against Midleton and Douglas to come before championship against Sarsfields on April 29th. This panel have a busy few weeks ahead.

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Jack O’Rourke, Emmet Barron, Jamie Landers, Kevin Murphy, Luke Fogarty, Keane Kelly Budds, Christy Coughlan, Sean Walsh, Andrew Leahy, David Ogbebor, Aaron Walsh, Killian Treacy, Shane Kearney.

U15 boys win a thriller in Carrigaline

Premier 2 U-15 Hurling League Carrigaline 3-9, Killeagh-Ita’s 4-8

A cracking game of hurling saw our Under 15 team come away from Carrigaline after 9.30 on Thursday evening last with their first two points of the 2016 hurling league. A sluggish start saw us 2-3 to 0-0 behind after just ten minutes, but once our boys recovered their composure, they began to weather the storm. An enforced change necessitated the move to full-back of Daniel Lucey to replace injured Cian McDonald, and that brought Ben O’Connor into the game on the ’40. Our defenders began to get on top and clear their lines better, with Danny Cunningham and Paul Delaney becoming very effective in their corner back positions. It took Ben a little while to get into the game, but the closing five minutes of the first half saw him add a goal and a point to Olan Broderick’s three earlier points (two from frees) to reduce the deficit at half-time to just one score, Carrigaline ahead by 2-4 to 1-4. A good point from Dara Motherway just after half-time reduced the deficit, but scores were absent for the next ten minutes, before Carrigaline extended their lead with their fifth point. Suddenly, the floodgates opened for us between he 43rd and 48th minute, with Ben and Dara adding further points before three quick goals from Olan Broderick, Richie Landers and Ben put us in the driving seat with twelve minutes remaining – leading by 4-7 to 2-5. Olan added a further point with ten minutes to go, and we looked to be heading for victory. Carrigaline were in no mood for retreating, however, and they countered with 1-4 in the closing stages, and almost added an injury-time goal but the sliotar whizzed past confident cúl báire Brian Murphy’s post, and victory was ours. Well done to Sean and Ger who made some astute switches on the line, especially at half-time, which helped us to win this game. Next up we welcome Ballygarvan to Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Sunday April 17th.

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

U12s hold on in exciting local derby

Fé 12 Eastern ‘A’ Football League Killeagh-Ita’s 7-3, Kiltha Óg 5-3

An enthralling football game was played between two highly committed teams in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Saturday afternoon, with a dark black cloud setting an ominous backdrop over Glenane as we awaited the downpour. Thankfully, the precipitation stayed away until after Mary Swayne’s final whistle, which meant our players and supporters went home happy and dry! The wind played a major part in this game, with our boys using it to their advantage in the first half, building up a commanding lead at half-time, 6-3 to 2-1. Colm Leahy, Callum Martin White and Daniel Walsh were the chief scorers, while further out the field David Buckley, Ben Budds, Rory Motherway and Conor Meade all played great games and covered acres of ground. Things were not looking so good for us within five minutes of the restart as the Kiltha boys quickly ate into our lead, leaving us perilously ahead by 6-3 to 5-3 after just eight minutes of the second half. However, some heroic defending and excellent battling throughout the pitch kept the score at that, and Daniel Walsh’s goal gave our boys a cushion which they held on to the end. Well done boys, managers Adrian and Declan were chuffed! Well done to our opponents who also contributed to a very entertaining game.

Team: Dylan McCarthy, Daniel Griffin, Ben Fogarty, Ben Budds, David Buckley, Conor Meade, Rory Motherway, Callum Martin White, Daniel Walsh, Pierse Geary, Danny Fitzgerald, Colm Leahy.

Honours shared in exciting game

Rebel Óg Fé 11 Hurling Killeagh-Ita’s 1-4, Kiltha Óg 1-4

The U-11’s had their first hurling league outing last Wednesday night against Kiltha Óg. Despite very poor conditions the team put in a great performance. Team captain Ruairi Mackey led his team admirably from goals while full backs Diarmuid Buckley, Daniel Griffin and Dylan McCarthy did great work keeping the Kiltha Óg forwards on a short leash. The half backs of Piece Geary and Liam Considine worked tirelessly and halted many attacks. Our midfielders Colm Leahy and Jack O’Connor were unstoppable, sending quality ball into the hardworking forwards of Eoin Kelly, Liam Óg Power and Martin Power. The latter two were playing their first game in the Killeagh colours. The team was very ably supported by four of the U-10’s; Michael Doherty, Harry Connon, Fionn Murphy and Sean Meade. 

 

From the first puck of the ball, Killeagh were up for this battle, with excellent hooks, blocks, kicks, hard-hits, saves and great scores,. With rain threatening, Kiltha Óg increased the pressure on our lads, but Killeagh stood strong. Those 15 players each deserve Man of the Match for an outstanding performance in terrible conditions. (Congratulations to Liam Óg Power for his first goal in his debut match!)

 

The final score was Killeagh 1-4, Kiltha Óg 1-4. Well done to all. Keep up the good work lads. Special thanks to all the parents for their continued support and to Paudie Kearney for refereeing a great game.

Easter Camp 2016 – Fun While It Lasted!

In the words of Mr M. Loaf, “Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad” is an apt summary of our Easter Camp which saw two fantastic days of spórt agus spraoi for over 130 young boys and girls, followed by a wash-out forcing cancellation of Day 3 on Friday last. Wednesday and Thursday gave us lots of fun, kids on the run, in the sun, but April Fool’s Day saw our inclement weather again making fools of us all, with “Rain Stops Play” being the order of the day. Thanks to the many coaches who helped on the two good days – Shane, Noel, Gavin, Johnny, Eoin, Laura, Emma, Jack, Rachel, Barry, Dylan, Padraig, Dara and David, and to organisers Sean and Ursula. Our Summer Camp takes place on the week of July 18th-22nd; hopefully the weather will give us five full days of fun then.

 

Minor Goals Being Reached, One By One

Eastern B Minor Football League Killeagh-Ita’s 4-6, Carrigtwohill 0-7

Meat Loaf’s popular ballad could equally apply to our minor footballers after their victory in Round 3 of the football league saw them reach the “two out of three” mark, following on from a narrow defeat by Kiltha Óg and a comprehensive victory over Youghal. This game on Thursday evening last saw a marked increase in the standard of football from the previous two games, and we needed all our ‘big guns’ back and firing to dispose of a talented and fit Carrigtwohill team. Our lineout saw six changes from the previous game over Youghal, and a near 100% turnout of available players allowed us the luxury of starting a team full of Under 17 and Under 18 players. Christy Coughlan led the charge all through from centre-back, kicking an excellent point after two minutes to open the scoring, with good support play from Jamie Landers and Fionn McDonnell. Carrig kicked the next three points – two from play and a brilliant ’45 – as our passes went astray around the middle of the field, and they held the upper hand until the 19th minute when Keane Budds finished to the net, following an excellent catch and run by Cathal Deane. A blistering final five minutes before Jim Daly’s half-time whistle gave us a nice cushion, with a brace of points by Aaron Walsh sandwiching an excellent goal by captain David Ogbebor who broke though the last line of defence to rattle the net. Ag leath-am bhíomar chun tosaigh 2-3 i gcoinne 0-3. The second half was quite similar to the first with Carrig dominating the possession and scoring of the first ten minutes, kicking three points to reduce the deficit to just one score. Our defenders were kept busy but Padraig McCarthy, Jack O’Rourke and Shane Kearney held their line excellently throughout, and distributed well when they broke up attacks. Behind them Adrian Galvin kept a clean sheet, kicked very accurately and long from kick-outs, and made a crucial save after 53 minutes to deflect a goal-bound shot over the bar. By that stage, our forwards had kicked back into action with a second goal from David and a fine left-footed point kicked by Keane Budds to stretch the lead to eight points. David’s hat-trick in the 55th minute, following great work from Christy and Aaron, and a final point by Aaron, put the seal on a hard-earned but justified victory. Good performances throughout the team pleased bainisteoir Adrian who was delighted with the work-rate and enthusiasm of all his players.

Team: Adrian Galvin, Shane Kearney, Jack O’Rourke, Padraig McCarthy, Jamie Landers, Christy Coughlan (0-1), Emmet Barron, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Luke Fogarty, Sean Walsh, David Ogbebor (3-0), Cathal Deane, Fionn McDonnell, Aaron Walsh (0-4, 0-1f), Keane Budds (1-1). Subs: Dylan Hogan, Olin Hennessy, Kieran Daly, Richie Long.

 

Healthy Club Project – time to get up and running – this Friday!

Following the fantastic success of the first ever Killeagh 4 miles Road Race on March 13th, Killeagh GAA have now taken on another innovative venture, again with some additional help. GAA Headquarters in Croke Park, through their National Health and Wellbeing Committee, recently sought applications from clubs in all 32 counties to participate in Phase 2 of the National Healthy Club Project. With only 50 clubs to be selected, the competition was going to be tough. In a creative and inclusive move, Killeagh GAA sought the support of its three sister clubs who share its facilities in Páirc Uí Chinnéide – Killeagh Camogie Club, Inch Rovers Ladies Football Club, and Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Club – in applying to be selected for this Project. Good news came through at the end of February that our application was successful and that we have been included. This should mean lots of exciting initiatives happening in Páirc Uí Chinnéide and elsewhere in our community over the next eighteen months, with the focus on all aspects of health and wellbeing – physical, emotional and community. Already representatives from each of the four clubs have come together for a night of training on “Health and Wellbeing” delivered by the Cork GAA Health and Wellbeing Committee. The next step now is to formally get this Project up and running in our community. With this in mind, an Open Meeting will take place in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Friday next April 8th at 8.00 p.m. This meeting is open to members of all four clubs, but also we want to extend an open invitation to those in our community who are not affiliated with any of the four clubs but who have an interest in or some expertise in the area of Health and Wellbeing and who would like to get involved. Please try to come along on the night where you can find out more about the Project, give your ideas on what you might like to see happen, and perhaps get involved in the organisation of forthcoming events. See you there, healthy or not!

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

 

Questions Answered In Exciting Quiz Night

Which is larger, the Pacific or Atlantic Ocean? How many balls are bowled in an over in cricket? These and 78 other questions were the focus of the attention of over 150 primary school children at the third Annual Primary Schools Quiz held in Killeagh Community Centre on March 14th last. Organised by Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Club, the quiz serves two purposes – a fun night out for the many children from our parish schools and other local schools (Castlemartyr, Kilcredan, Clonpriest, Bunscoil Eochaille) who were represented on the night, and a fundraiser for the club and one local charity. This year the chosen charity was the Killeagh-Inch Defibrillator Group, a sub-committee of Killeagh-Inch Community Council, who have placed defibrillators throughout the parish over the past four years. As a result of this event, the group will be close to having the funds to purchase another defibrillator or provide necessary training to more within our community. With 37 teams entered, space was at a premium, and the noise level was quite high at times! Nevertheless, when it was eyes down and time to knock heads together to find those answers and beat the clock, concentration levels went up as the noise levels went down! Ag deireadh an oÍche, bhí buaiteorí againn. Castlemartyr NS, going for a three-in-a-row, were beaten on the line by Kilcredan NS, whose team of Eoghan Rooney, Grace Rooney, Avril Millerick and Michael Wall completed eight rounds of ten questions with a staggering score of 74/80, one ahead of the Castlemartyr team, who were one ahead in turn of a second Kilcredan quartet. Best placed of the Killeagh parish teams were Inch NS, in fourth place with 70 points. Many thanks to all those who supported the event on the night, to those who helped in any way to ensure that it ran smoothly, and to the members of Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile Club and the Killeagh-Inch Defibrillator Group for their assistance in planning, organising and running the event. We’ll go again in March 2017!

Motorview 4 Mile Road Race:

We had our inaugural four mile road race on Sunday March 13th. It was kindly sponsored by main Kia dealer Motorview Motors and what a successful day it turned out to be. While a lot of hard work had been carried out before Sunday it still required a mammoth effort to see the event through to a success. From early Sunday morning there was a hive of activity at the club grounds with the many volunteers calmly going about their tasks to ensure the day ran smoothly for everybody. Stewarding of the race and at the club grounds was well thought out and implemented to the plan which gave way to minimum hardship for the many, many visitors who came to our club grounds. Registration opened from 9am and the walkers started at 9.30am. The main road race got underway at 11.00am and finished at the club grounds. A total of 246 runners and 80 walkers took to the course on the day. The general consensus from the participants was that it was a very enjoyable course to run, it was well organised and marshalled and the parking, changing and refreshment facilities that were laid on were top class. Our chairman, Mr Padraig McGrath said that on behalf of the club, he owed a huge debt of gratitude to the many people who gave their time and efforts to ensure the day was a brilliant success for both the GAA club and the community. He also paid huge thanks to Youghal AC for all their help and expertise in organising the event for our club. Full results and photos of the day are up on our website and Facebook pages and also on Running in Cork, Ireland blog.

Killeagh-Ita’s

Our U16 footballers played their second league game of the season in Carrignavar on Saturday March 5th and came away with their second league win in seven days. It was a tough encounter with Carrignavar where conditions underfoot were testing and a strong breeze blowing down the pitch added to the test. Our lads dug in from the off and although they trailed at half time on a score of 3-03 to 1-04 they never gave up and were duly rewarded for their gallant effort. The back line were very strong and even though they shipped three first half goals they kept their heads up and thwarted their opponents in the second half where Carrignavar failed to score. The midfield and half forwards worked tirelessly for the duration and tracked back time and again to help the back line and also to launch attacks. The forwards also worked very hard and although a couple of efforts failed to hit the target they hit a total of eleven scores over the game. Well done to the subs who came on as they stepped up to the plate immediately to maintain the pressure on their opponents. Thanks to all the parents who took the time to bring the lads to the game and got behind them and encouraged them during the game. Well done all round. The final score was Carrignavar 3-03 Killeagh-Ita’s 2-09.

Squad: O Hennessey, K Daly, C McDonald, J Kent, D Geary, D Hogan, R McCarthy, P Leahy, L McCarthy, D Kelly, A Galvin, R Landers, A Foley, J Wyse, R Long, O McCarthy, P Delaney, D Lucey, K O’Toole, C Fitzgibbon, R Sinclair, T Noonan, D O’Connor, O Cosgrove, O Broderick, B Motherway, D Motherway, D Cunningham, G Sinclair.
