HEALTHY CLUBS UPDATE – HILL WALK NO. 3

We have two big events to kick-start the autumn season in the Healthy Clubs Project. On Sunday next, Hill Walk No. 3 takes place. Having been to Knockadoon and then to Roches Point for our first two hill walks, we come closer to home this Sunday, with a walk through road, path and field in the northern end of the parish. Rath Fort, on Dan Harte’s land, is one of the hidden treasures of not just Killeagh parish but of all of East Cork, and Dan has kindly agreed to allow our Hill Walk group to access this fascinating historical site. We will meet outside Inch Church at 10.30 a.m., and travel by foot north east towards Rath, climbing gradually. Should time and weather conditions permit, we will continue our trek to Ardagh Graveyard, another hidden treasure in our locality, before returning to Inch, ensuring that our walkers can get home to see the Dubs and Mayo in the All-Ireland. Places are limited, so text your name to Colman on 085-7540973 to book your place. Bring appropriate footwear, clothing, food and drink, and a smile!

Our second date for your diary is a Healthy Food Workshop and Demonstration which will take place in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Friday October 7th at 7.30 p.m. Further details will follow – for the moment, save the date!

Pairc Ui Chinneide was the venue for the semi-final clash of Cloyne and Youghal in the East Cork Junior ‘B’ hurling championship. The weather wasn’t great for hurling but both teams battled hard against the elements where, in the end Cloyne emerged with a victory on a final score of Youghal 0-15 Cloyne 3-07. They now await the outcome of the Killeagh v Sarsfields clash to find out their opponents in the final. We would like to thank all the club members who helped out at the pitch last Sunday evening and also to thank both teams and their supporters who complied with the stewards on duty.

Minor Hurlers Qualify For Premier 1 Final

Rebel Óg Premier 1 Hurling Championship Semi-Final Killeagh-Ita’s 3-16, Midleton 0-13

An outstanding performance from the full team gave Killeagh-Ita’s a deserved victory over Midleton in the Premier 1 Hurling semi-final played on an immaculate Cloyne pitch on Wednesday evening last. This game was played in a very competitive yet fair spirit, with credit due to both sides for contributing to such an entertaining game. David Ogbebor was first out of the blocks from Joe Larkin’s throw-in, bursting through the centre to point after 1 minute. We held the lead for the remaining 60 minutes. Kevin Murphy pointed the first of his four first-half scores (three ‘65s and a long-range free) before Midleton got off the mark. On twelve minutes Cathal Deane’s long delivery into the square landed into the net to give us a 1-3 to 0-2 lead, and we held this throughout. On 25 minutes, Andrew Leahy, who had just pointed, struck a beautiful goal to give us a 2-7 to 0-6 lead, before a bad knee injury to Christy Coughlan held up the game. We managed to hold our composure in spite of losing one of our team leaders, and held a nine-point lead at half time – 2-10 to 0-7. A critical play happened in the opening seconds of the second half, as Midleton burst through and seemed sure to score before Shane Kearney (who had been relatively untroubled in the first half), made a vital save. A goal at this time would surely have changed the complexion of the game. Sean Walsh and Andrew Leahy added points to extend our lead, before Midleton took control for the next 15 minutes. Five unanswered points were conceded to reduce the gap to just six – 2-12 to 0-12, but our defence was playing heroically, with Jack O’Rourke, Kevin Murphy and Eoin Fitzgibbon all vying for the “laoch na h-imeartha” award for their brilliant defending, blocking and clearing. Killian Treacy and David Ogbebor continued to trouble the Midleton defence, while Andrew Leahy showed the full range of his skills with catches, flicks, handpasses and brilliant ball control. He applied the finish to Midleton’s stubborn resistance when he goaled from a long Kevin Murphy delivery, and Cathal Deane had the final say in injury time to see us win by 12 points, 3-16 to 0-13. Credit to all of the players involved and the management team of Niall and Ciaran who have them finely tuned, and are getting the very best out of each player. Na Piarsaigh will be our opponents in the final which is due to be held on Monday September 12th at 8.15 p.m. in Páirc Uí Rinn.

Team: Shane Kearney, Emmet Barron, Jack O’Rourke, Dylan Hogan, Kevin Murphy (0-4f), Christy Coughlan, Jamie Landers, Keane Kelly Budds, Cathal Deane (1-1), Eoin Fitzgibbon, David Ogbebor (0-1), Killian Treacy (0-5, 0-2f), Andrew Leahy (2-3), Luke Fogarty, Sean Walsh (0-2). Subs used: Padraig Leahy & Richie Long.

 

A Game of Two Halves – U16s Get It Together In Second Half

Eastern B Fé 16 Football League Killeagh-Ita’s 4-8, Whitechurch 1-12

A sluggish first half performance followed by a lively second half gave our Under 16 footballers their sixth win of their league campaign when Whitechurch visited Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Thursday evening last. Whitechurch dominated the first half, leading by 1-4 to 0-0 after ten minutes before our boys started to contest and awake from their slumbers. Richie Long goaled after 13 minutes before Adrian Galvin (excellent again throughout) pointed. Whitechurch continued their dominance and led by 1-8 to 1-1 with half time approaching. A free from Richie followed by a good goal from Padraig Leahy reduced the deficit to just three points at half time (1-8 to 2-2) which probably was an injustice for our opponents’ efforts. With the wind at our backs in the second half and some astute changes from management as well as the magic half-time talks, we improved our efforts, performance, and scoring rate in the second half. Ball retention was much better, although we were still trailing by 1-10 to 3-2 entering the final quarter. Points from Padraig Leahy, Olan Broderick, Richie Long, and Paul Delaney and a third goal from Richie on 54 minutes saw us overturn the deficit and have our noses in front on referee Mary Swayne’s final whistle. Thanks to Whitechurch for a very competitive game, our final one before we welcome Clondrohid for championship next Saturday.

Team: Robbie Treacy, Kieran Daly, Daniel Lucey, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Ryan McCarthy, Dylan Hogan, Robert Sinclair, David Kelly, Padraig Leahy, Olan Broderick, Adrian Galvin, Olin Hennessy, Paul Delaney, Richie Long, Richie Landers. Subs used: Barry Motherway and Darragh Geary.

 

U12 League Final

Saturday August 27th saw Killeagh-Ita’s and Lisgoold tog out in Castlemartyr for their long awaited final. The day was good with a nice strong breeze in which Killeagh played against in the 1st half. Killeagh-Ita’s were first to score with an opening point from Daniel Walsh who was again in tip top form. Daniel scored a second point and Lisgoold followed up with their opening score. Daniel Buckley added another point for Killeagh-Ita’s but Lisgoold scored five more points to leave the score at half time Killeagh-Ita’s 0-0 3 Lisgoold 0-0 6.

Just after the restart Daniel Walsh scored a quick goal and followed up with another point. Colum Leahy who worked tirelessly in the forward line got on the scoresheet with a cracking goal. Daniel Walsh went on to score another 2 points with Callum Martin White scoring a point from open play. Lisgoold tried to get back in the game with 3 points but fantastic defending by Pierce Geary in goals kept our score safe. He had a great backline in Dylan McCarthy, Darragh O’Leary, Conor Meade, Ben Budds and Ben Fogarty. Callum Martin White and David Buckley kept the mid-field position ticking over and in the forward positions were Ciaran Brennan, Rory Motherway, Daniel Walsh, Colm Leahy and Danny Fitzgerald.

With the full time whistle about to blow Lisgoold found the back of the net but Rory Motherway found his way to the net once more for Killeagh-Ita’s and another goal was scored. Time was up and the delight of team, mentors and supporters could be felt all round. Full time whistle came and the celebrations began. Full time score – Killeagh 3-07 Lisgoold 1-09. A fantastic game of hurling was displayed by these young boys who are all passionate about their game.  

Well done to Adrian Budds, Richie Brennan, Declan Fogarty, Seamus Considine and Ciaran O’Brien on bringing these boys to the winning position.

 

Team: Pierce Geary, Dylan McCarthy, Darragh O’Leary, Conor Meade, Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Callum Martin White, David Buckley, Ciaran Brennan, Rory Motherway, Daniel Walsh, Colum Leahy and Danny Fitzgerald. Our Subs today were: Diarmuid Buckley, Tommy Morrison, Liam Considine, Jack O’Connor, Eoin Kelly, Evan Daly and Sean O’Riordan.

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile Club Notes

GAME OF THE YEAR SEES MINOR FOOTBALLERS PROGRESS

Rebel Óg Eastern B Football Championship Killeagh-Ita’s 2-16, Cobh 2-12 (AET)

Full credit to both teams who contributed so much to a most exciting and entertaining game of championship football which was played on Sunday evening last in Páirc Uí Chinnéide. Jim Daly was the man in the middle, and Cobh got off to the better start, with four excellent points in the first nine minutes. Sean Walsh kicked his first free over the bar on 12 minutes to get us operational on the scoreboard and added a point from play shortly after. Fionn McDonnell got a third score, while in defence and midfield Emmet Barron, Eoin Fitzgibbon and Cathal Deane were playing exceptionally well. We had a let off on 22 minutes when cúl báire Adrian Galvin made a point-blank save, although Cobh did add two further points before half time. Sandwiched between these scores, however, was a crucial penalty which was expertly converted to the net by Sean Walsh, thus leaving the sides ar chomhscór ag leath am – 1-3 to 0-6. Cobh again started the second half in better form, with two goals of their own in the first 10 minutes, while David Ogbebor (he’d break the GPS tracker if someone was brave enough to put it on him!) pointed after a great run. On 42 minutes, it looked ominous, with Cobh leading by 2-7 to 0-8, but our team showed unbelievable heart and effort to claw back the deficit with six unanswered points from Sean Walsh (three frees, one from play), David, and an excellent effort from Christy Coughlan which gave us the lead with three minutes remaining. Cobh showed that they were not lacking in heart or effort either in getting an equaliser, while both sides had late chances to win from frees, but neither were converted, so we were on to extra time, with the scores deadlocked 1-11 to 2-8. Extra time saw the advantage swing one way and then the other. We got two points initially from Sean Walsh and the super engine Keane Budds, but then Cobh kicked four of their own in a five minute spell to take a 2 point lead at the turn around. With light fading, we needed to give one more push, and our captain, David Ogbebor rallied his troops with one last call. The call worked, with Christy Coughlan kicking two unbelievable points from 40 and 45 metres out to level it, before Sean Walsh pointed a free with four minutes left to give us the lead once more. The icing on the cake was a goal from Richie Long with three minutes left, and some brilliant defending in the closing minutes to keep Cobh’s score at 2-12. In a weekend that saw two amazing All-Ireland Hurling Semi-Final games, we had our own bit of excitement and drama in Páirc Uí Chinnéide to remind us what’s special about sport.

Team: Adrian Galvin, Barry Motherway, Emmet Barron, Kieran Daly, Christy Coughlan (0-3), Jack O’Rourke, Dylan Hogan, Keane Kelly Budds (0-1), Eoin Fitzgibbon, Cathal Deane, David Ogbebor (0-2), Luke Fogarty, Fionn McDonnell (0-1), Sean Walsh (1-9, 1-6 from frees), Richie Long (1-0). Subs: Oisin McCarthy, Richie Landers, Olin Hennessy, James Kent, Darragh Geary.

 

U12s get in some good practice ahead of semi-final

Our Under 12 hurlers had two very good games in the past week in preparation for their Eastern ‘A’ semi-final against Erins Own which takes place next Saturday in Caherlag at 3.30 p.m. We travelled to Sarsfields on Monday evening (although the jerseys didn’t!!!) and had a great tussle with our hosts who beat us by 7-11 to 5-11. Colm Leahy and Rory Motherway both scored two goals each, with Daniel Walsh adding the fifth along with some excellent points from frees. David Buckley was a livewire at midfield, ably assisted by Callum Martin White, while Nathan Mulcahy and Tommy Morrison worked really hard up front. On Saturday we played an understrength Midleton team at home and won by 3-7 to 1-5 with Daniel Walsh and Colm Leahy doing the bulk of the scoring. The platform for this win though was an excellent defence where Darragh O’Leary at full-back and the half-back line of Ben Fogarty, Ben Budds and Conor Meade were brilliant from start to finish. Not a bad week for our bainisteoir Adrian with both his teams (under 12 hurlers and minor footballers) giving him lots to be proud of!

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

We would like to thank Brookes Super Valu, Youghal, and Cork senior footballer Eoin Cadogan, who presented a range of playing equipment to Killeagh-Ita’s on Thursday evening last. Bibs, footballs, cones, gear bags and ladders will all be very useful for our juvenile teams in the coming months, and all we had to do was turn up for the photo-shoot! Thanks to Ken and Peter Brookes and to the Musgrave / Super Valu group for thinking of us! Eoin Cadogan (Cork Senior Footballer) presents GAA kit to Killeagh-Ita’s representatives Rory Motherway, Orla Motherway and Sadhbh McDonnell in Brookes Super Valu, Youghal. Included are Ken Brookes and Peter Brookes.

 

U16 Football League

Our U16 footballers took to a wind and rain swept pitch on Friday night to play St Colmans in an U16 league fixture. It was a good game for both teams in tough conditions and both sets of players deserve credit for the display under such terrible conditions. Whilst it was a good game, Killeagh-Ita’s emerged victorious having been the dominant team in both periods. A strong squad of twenty players showed up for the game and all players got a good run. Next up is a league fixture against Whitechurch this coming week and on Sunday next, August 28th we are hoping to take the players to Abbotstown and Croke Park for the All-Ireland semi-final between Kerry and Dublin.

Squad on Friday night was R Treacy, D Geary, D Lucey, J Kent, C Fitzgibbon, D Hogan, D Kelly R McCarthy, P Leahy, O Broderick, O Hennessey, A Galvin, R Landers, R Long, P Delaney, C McDonald, O McCarthy, D O’Connor, L McCarthy, D Cunningham.

 

U8 Football Blitz

Pairc Ui Chinneide played host once again to a football blitz for U8’s on Saturday morning. Organised expertly once again by GDA Shane Supple it commenced at 10.00am and was all finished by 1.00pm. It was a good day weather-wise with the rain holding off and despite the windy conditions everybody seemed to enjoy the experience…especially the kids. A total of 24 teams took part with each getting three games and in keeping with our Healthy Club Project the refreshments were fresh fruit and juices. Complimentary teas and coffee were also available with Niamh, Fidelma and Sadhbh on hand to serve everybody. Well done to all involved and we hope all our visitors enjoyed their day at Killeagh GAA Club.

U12 Killeagh-Ita’s vs Erins Own

This game was played in Caherlag on Saturday afternoon and was an Eastern ‘A’ League semi-final. Although the weather was poor, it did not affect the lads as they put in a fine performance to land the spoils and head for the final on August 27th. It was a dour first half and to be fair to both teams they played very well in difficult conditions and scores were hard to come by with the teams’ level at half-time with three points each. Daniel Walsh scored all three points for Killeagh-Ita’s and he then added a goal and a point straight after the restart. David Buckley added a point before Tommy Morrisson added a cracker of a goal. Callum Martin White scored a point before Daniel Walsh took over with three more points. Finally Colm Leahy worked very hard and was rewarded with a fine goal to end the game on a final score of 3-09 to 0-04. Well done to all concerned for reaching a final and especially to Ali Budds for organising the jerseys. Enjoy the blitz on Tuesday lads in Thurles.

Team: Pierce Geary, Darragh O’Leary, David Buckley, Ciaran Brendan, Conor Meade, Ben Budds, Colm Leahy, Ben Fogarty, Callum Martin White, Daniel Walsh, Dylan McCarthy, Tommy Morrison, Evan Daly, Nathan Mulcahy and our sub was Jack O’Connor.

U16 Killeagh-Ita’s vs Ballinhassig  

This game was a league fixture played in Ballinhassig on Sunday evening. It was played under testing conditions due to the inclement weather. However, the lads played very well and came through the test. They scored some lovely points in the first half and were well in control at the halfway stage. They chalked up the only goal of the game just after half-time and continued to dominate up to the final whistle. They used up the five subs midway through the second half to give everybody who travelled some game time.

Squad: B Murphy, D Geary, J Kent, D Lucey, R Landers, A Galvin, K Daly, D Kelly, P Leahy, O McCarthy, R McCarthy, R Long, C Fitzgibbon, O Broderick, O Hennessey, D Cunningham, D O’Connor, P Delaney, C McDonald, D Hogan.

JUVENILE NEWS

History made by Killeagh-Ita’s U16 team

Rebel Óg Eastern A Fé 16 Hurling Final​Killeagh-Ita’s 5-13, Cloughduv 5-8

An enthralling game of hurling played by two hugely committed teams ended in a five-point victory for Killeagh-Ita’s at reiteoir Cormac Dineen’s final whistle in Shanbally on Monday evening last. Joyous scenes followed as this team and their supporters celebrated their first ever under-age title and Eastern Board Chairman Liam Shanahan presented the beautiful Rebel Óg cup to our dedicated captain Dylan Hogan. This game burst into life from the throw in with Ben O’Connor rattling the net a la Joe Canning after just 17 seconds. When Richie Long, with a fine assist from Olan Broderick, added a second goal on 7 minutes to give us a 2-1 to 0-1 lead, things looked good. However, this Cloughduv team were far from despondent and they showed tremendous resilience to rattle in their own goals on 11, 20 and 21 minutes, and suddenly they led by 3-6 to 2-5. Thankfully, our defence shored up for the remainder of the half and a penalty and subsequent point by Ben levelled matters at half time. Things looked bad after six minutes of the second half as Cloughduv added two more quick goals, the first from a counter-attack after we could have scored at the other end. On forty minutes, Ben added his third and our fourth goal to reduce the margin to one, before Padraig Leahy and Olan Broderick pointed to put us ahead. Then a shrewd sideline move which saw Adrian Galvin rattle the net shortly after his relocation to corner-forward pushed us 5-11 to 5-7 ahead. A Richie Long point from play added to two Ryan McCarthy frees saw us home, with our right wing players (Darragh Geary, David Kelly and Richie Long) clearing a torrent of ball to suppress the Cloughduv attacks. Congratulations to our hard-working team and panel, and a bualadh bos mór to the three wise men Sean, Ger and Dick for their development of this team into Eastern A winners. Hopefully they can negotiate their next hurdle now which is a County semi-final versus formidable Western champions Sam Maguires from Dunmanway.

Team: Brian Murphy, Darragh Geary, Daniel Lucey, Kieran Daly, David Kelly, Dylan Hogan, Adrian Galvin (1-0), Ryan McCarthy (0-6, 0-5f), Richie Landers, Richie Long (1-1), Barry Motherway, Padraig Leahy (0-2), Ben O’Connor (3-2), Oisin McCarthy (0-1), Olan Broderick (0-1).

Minors in control against Carrignavar to claim league points

Fé 18 Minor Football League ​Carrignavar 0-5, Killeagh-Ita’s 2-7

 

Well done to Adrian Budds and his band of faithful footballers who headed to the College field in Carrignavar on Tuesday 26th July to take on the home side. This was our boy’s fourth game in the Rebel Og Eastern 18B league competition and with two wins out of three games it was important to win this game to hold our positon on the league table. Conditions under foot and overhead were not great however this did little to dampen the spirits of our footballers who were up for the challenge. There is great credit due to the U16 players who had to be called upon to make up the numbers after their fantastic victory the previous night in Shanbally to be crowned East Cork Champions. Cathal opened the scoring with a lovely point from play and our dominance on this game was rubberstamped when Olin Hennessy slotted the football past the Carrignavar goalie for a fantastic goal from play. Cathal scored another point from a 40 metre free before the home side scored a point also from a free. Cathal was awarded a penalty when he was taken down with ball in hand while goal-ward bound, and a very well taken penalty was skillfully finished to the net by David. A second scored free for Carrignavar brought the first half to a close on a scoreline of 2-2 to 0-2. David got the second half off to a great start for Killeagh/Ita’s when he put the ball over the crossbar, we continued to dominate in the second half and when the ref blew the full time whistle we were comfortable winners with a score of 2-7 to 0-5 . Well done to all this was a great team performance, our backline was very solid and with only 5 points scored by Carrignavar of which two were scored from play we know how hard they worked. It also gave some players an opportunity to play in different positions with James Kent working hard in the forwards, Darragh Geary very busy at wing-forward in the second half, and Richie Long calmness personified between the sticks. For good measure his kick outs had both length and accuracy – as good as Stephen Cluxton!

 

Next outing for our Minor footballers is on Bank Holiday Monday in Killeagh at 6.00 versus Bride Rovers, please come down and support the boys.

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

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

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

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

Summer Camp – the best ever!

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

FINALLY –

Some congratulations after a busy weekend:

– To our sister club Killeagh Camogie’s senior team who won their championship game v St. Finbarr’s on Sunday evening;

– To Angela and Kevin Walsh, who married in style in Killeagh church and partied in the Radisson, Little Island. Best wishes to you both and your daughter Keeva for a long and healthy life together;

– To Carmel Barry, loyal GAA and Scór supporter, who has hung up her hairdressing scissors, brushes and shampoos after a remarkable 47 years of washing and cutting in Killeagh. If ever you have cause to write a memoir of all those stories revealed at the hairdresser’s, it would surely be a bestseller (although you might have to leave Killeagh!!) Well done Carmel, and may you have many happy and healthy years of happiness ahead of you.

Senior Hurlers get out of jail!

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

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

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

 

Golf Classic once again a major success

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

Double Delight For Killeagh-Ita’s in Championship

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Two out of Three ….

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

Team: Brian Murphy, Paul Delaney, Daniel Lucey, Danny Cunningham, Robert Sinclair, Richie Landers (1-0), Owen Cosgrove, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Ryan McCarthy (0-6f), David Collins, Oisin McCarthy, Ciaran O’Rourke, Darragh O’Connor, Dara Motherway (0-1), Tommy Noonan, Remy Bernard (0-1), Ben O’Connor (1-2).

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