After the championship defeat a week previous Glenville had a league fixture against Adrigole on Saturday last. Glenville were severely understrength for this game with only a sprinkling of championship players on view and were well beaten on the night. Adrigole got off to a flying start and led 3-6 to 0-1 after 15 minutes where they continued the rout til half time and led 3-12 to 1-1 Glenvilles goal coming from a sweetly struck effort from Darragh o Callaghan. Glenville improved in the second half but the margin was way outside the point of a comeback and a degree of respectability with some fine second half scores. Glenville had good performances from Darragh o Callaghan,Kieran Coakley. Glenville still hold top spot in the league standings but will have to win the remaining four league games to consolidate that position. Final Score Adrigole 3-16 Glenville 1-8.

The Junior C Footballers were heavily in action over the past week with two league games. On Wednesday night we defeated Cloyne at home by 1-4 to 0-5 after a tough dogged game in which a fine first half Niall Griffin goal was the differance in the end. Ger Carmody, John o Connell and Shane o Riordan were also in fine form.

On Sunday we travelled to Shangarry to play Russell Rovers. With 16 players we put up a good show seeing as we were up against Russell Rovers only  team. John o Keeffe, Colm Fenton Brian Cosgrove and the evergreen JJ Kearney performed well as we lost out 3-12 to 1-7. Darragh Foley getting the goal.


On Tuesday the Minor had their second game in the Summer league when we played a strong Bandon side. Glenville were slow off the blocks and found ourselves 3-5 to no score down after 15 mins in which we were totally blitzed. Point for point bit by bit we kept the scoreboard ticking and were within 6 points at the break. Dilan Donovan, PJ Dennehy and Shane o Riordan getting good scores. After halftime we began to see further improvement and we drew level with ten mins to go with green flags from Adam Murphy and Colm Fenton.With the policy of making sure everyone got a run out we emptied the bench and unfortunately conceeded late scores to loose out by a two point margin after a great game of football Glenville 4-8 Bandon 4-10


Well done to Kevin o Neill who performed admirably again when Cork lost out to Tipperary in the Munster Minor Football Semi Final.




Glenville defeated Erins Own in the U14FL last Friday night in a tough low scoring game with the Glenville team eeking out a narrow one point win which was well earned and well deserved. Everyone put in a good effort and keeps Glenville near the top of the league with 3 games to play.
