Minors Win in League.

Our Minor Footballers had their first game in the County Rebel OgLeague last Sunday. Crosshaven from the Carrigdhoun Division were visitors to Pynes Fiekl for a 2 pm game. Our lad played exceptionally well and had a great win. Seven different players contributed to the scoring honours  with Colm Power getting an impressive  3 -1. It was a good start but we know we will havwe far tougher games to come in this competition. Our next game is away to Shamrocks . That fixtrure is down fior the weekend of March 2nd/3rd but may be brought to this weekend. The final score in Sundays game was Bride Rovers 3-11 Crosshaven 1-2

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.
