Fr.O Neills Juvenile Club Notes

Fr O Neills Juvenille Club are delighted to announce that they have secured sponsorship for the year ahead from Ger & Deirdre Finn proprietors of Finns Tavern and Finns Sand and Gravel Ballymacoda,Tom McGuickian of McGuickian Oils Carrigtwohill and from The Thatched Inn Ladysbridge,With the rising costs involved in running the Juvenile Club the income we receive from our sponsors is vital and most appreciated and we ask you to support them at every oppurtunity.

Our Fe 14 footballers took part in the feile blitz in the Glen on Saturday the 16th March, we only played 2 games as Boherbue and Castlehaven did not travel.
In the first game we played well and proved good enough to beat the hosts fairly comfortably. This was a good result as St Nicholas play in a league 2 grades higher than us.
In the second game we knew we would be up against it as our opponents Carrigaline are top of Premier 1 and favourites to represent  Cork in the national Feile. So it proved as Carrigaline completely out classed us. We take a break from the football now as the hurling starts on the 6th of April.
