Our junior hurling squad had a Division 4 fixture at home to Russell Rovers on Thursday May 9th. We had a fantastic turnout of players for this, our fourth team. Twenty players were available to play on the night. We capitalised on this by securing a well deserved win on a score of 1-09 to 2-05. We had a good first half and were winning at half-time on a score of 1-05 to 1-02 thanks to a fine goal from Martin Barry. It was all hands on deck for the second half when we were under pressure but saw out the fight to win by a solitary point which came from a successful late free by David Meade. Well done to all involved on the night.

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Notes
Week beginning May 13th 2013
Juvenile roundup
With Junior Cert and Leaving Cert exams only a matter of weeks away, and Communions, school tours and Sciath na Scol occupying the days and minds of the younger folk, the hectic pace of the early season has calmed somewhat, to the relief of parents, coaches and field managers, who can all afford to take a bit of a breath now at this point in the season. Our Under 15 hurlers were in action on Wednesday evening when they made the long journey to Kanturk to play Duhallow in the Rebel Óg Premier 1 League. Unfortunately our boys are playing in a very competitive league and we found Duhallow too strong for us. Our Under 14 footballers had a great win against neighbours Youghal on Friday evening in their sixth Easter League football game (now three won, three lost). As it has been in many games this season, the wind played a major factor in this game. Youghal won the toss and led at half time by 2-3 to 1-2, with our defence playing very well. Minus our two stalwarts Jamie and Keane through injury and illness respectively, we were also without Shane Kearney and lost Barry Motherway through injury half way through the first half. Our second half performance was very committed, with Shane O’Driscoll commanding in goals and Liam McCarthy and Sean Walsh very strong in defence. Dylan Hogan and Jack Wyse covered acres of ground in midfield, while Daniel Hickey, Richie Long and Fionn McDonnell did the scoring in the forwards. With just seven minutes to go Youghal had turned a one goal deficit into a one goal advantage in just ninety seconds, but three late goals gave us victory on a scoreline of 6-4 to 4-4.
Meanwhile, our Under 8 Killeagh-Ita’s footballers took part in a well-organised football blitz (well done once again to Sean Crowley, and to the local organisers) in Castlemartyr on Saturday. Two Killeagh-Itas teams (a total of 17 players comprising of nine Under 8’s and eight Under 7’s) competed in the 7-a-side competition. Between the two teams, we won five and drew one, and showed that we are well on the way to having a nice football team down the road with these boys. Players, coaches (bainisteoir Conor Murphy was very pleased) and parents had a great morning. Well done to all the boys. The future is very bright for football in Killeagh!
