All Systems Go.

Despite the inclement weather it's all systems go as various club teams get back into training for the coming season. It's at this time of tyear that the real value of our All Weather facility for training can be rally appreciated as it allows players to practise in some degree of comfort. After so much rain in recent weeks it is very difficult to get matches played as most fields are still unplayable. Our 2013 playing season gets underway on Saturday wehen the Minor Footballers open their County League Campaign.

Co. MFL.

On Saturdy February 2nd we are away to Brian Dillons at 2 o clock in our first gameof the season. Other fixtures in this competition are

Sat 2 March v Crosshaven, home

Sat 16 March v Lisgoold, away

Sat 24 March v Shamrocks, away.


The East Cork final of Senior Scor is on in Lisgoold on this coming Sunday night Feb 3rd. Interest in Scor has waned considerably in recent years but we hope to have entries in at least two categories on the night.


Junior Hurling.

Training commences on this Friday night Feb 1st at 7.30 and weather permitting we may have a game on Sunday.


Kildorrery 's campaign ends.

Kildorrery bowed out of the All Ireland JHC at Leahy Park in Cashel on Sunday last when they were beaten by Thomastown of Kilkenny.

While it was disappointing the Kildorrery team and mentors can reflect on a superb year at Divisional, County and Provincial level. They can look forward with confidence to playing hurling at Intermediate level in 2013.

Club Website.  

The Bride Rovers GAA Club website is proving popular at home and abroad. If you have any ideas for improving the website or suggestions for additions please contact us. Recently over 100 extra photographs have been added in the Gallery Section as well as extra match reports. If you have any old Club photos we would love to put them up on the website so please contact any Club Officer. We have very few photographs from the 1940's and 1950's and would seek any GAA related pictures taken in the parish during this period. Even photos of groups or individuals at carnivals, tournaments or East Cork games would be very welcome. Also please remind family members scattered all over the world to log in and keep in touch.

Best of luck and 'break a leg' to the Shanowen Players who present Synge's 'The Playboy of the Western World' in Rathcormac hall over the next two weekends.


Set Dancing.

Set Dancing Classes are held at 8.30 each Wed night in the Rathcormac Inn.
