Healthy Club Project 2016-2017 Activities:

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

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

 

CouchTo5K Full Of Perspiration and Inspiration

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

 

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

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Fé 15 Hurling League

Killeagh-Ita’s 6-15, Blackrock 5-8

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

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

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Double Win Blows Off the Cobwebs

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Congratulations!

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

 

Cúl Camp – July 18th – don’t forget!

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

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

Hill Walk No. 1

Our first walk/hike took place in Knockadoon on Sunday June 26th.

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

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Hard-earned victory for Under 12 boys

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

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

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

 

Glory for Inch NS in Sciath Na Scol Final

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

U12 League Football – Killeagh-Ita’s V’s Erins Own.

 

Team were;- Danny Fitzgerald, Ciaran Brennan, Eric Mellerick, Darragh O’Leary, Evan Daly, Ben Budds, Conor Meade, David Buckley, Ben Fogarty, Callum Martin White, Column Leahy, Daniel Walsh, Diarmuid Buckley, Rory Motherway and Tommy Morrison. Subs: Liam Considine.

 

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

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

 

More scores to follow came from David Buckley, Darragh O’Leary and Evan Daly 1 goal each and finishing up the game with another 2 points from Callum Martin White and 1 from Eric Mellerick (our new man on board). The final score was Killeagh 5-4 Erins Own 1-4.

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

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

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

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

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

 

Comprehensive championships win for u14

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

Fé 10 Hurling Tournament, Ballyduff, Saturday 28th 2016

 

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

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

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Good performances but no points for Under 13s

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

U16s get first win at second attempt

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

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

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