The double Premier 1 Fé15 Hurlers and Munster super touch winners got a standing ovation from the 264 guests  when they entered the Strand function room in Garryvoe Hotel. The Fé16 East ‘A’ footballers were also honoured for winning their Championship. The Fé14 Hurlers also got into the action when they received their medals for winning the Albert Griffin hurling tournament.
Our chairman Tom Millerick  gave credit to the great work being done at Fé12, 10 and 8 and it will not be long till they are receiving cups and medals as well.
Special Guests Luke O Farrell and Conor Lehane Cork Senior hurlers presented the medals. Other invited guest were Margaret Beausang Principle Kilcredan National, Jim Healy Secretary Cork County Rebel Og, Jim Forbes Chairman of the Central Rebel Og and Donie Cahill Chairman East ‘A’ Rebel Og,
Also at the top table was our esteemed life President and our greatest supporter Dick Lane.

Fé14 A Football challenge
Fr.O Neills 3:02 St Colmans 4:03.
St Colmans the amalgamation of Russels Rovers and Cloyne showed that they are up and running by coming out on top in a well contested game played in Cloyne on Sunday the 26/01/13. We wish them well in their new venture and look forward to the rematch.

Fé14 East ‘A’ Football Lge.rnd,1
Fr O Neills 3:04 v Erins Own 4:04
We started our league campaign on Sunday the 03/02/2013 against Erins Own and after a very exciting game we lost out by a late goal in the Glanmire Community School grounds. We were unlucky not to get the draw when we hit the cross bar in dying minutes. It was however a battling performance, not helped by the celebrations of the previous night.
