Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Notes
Week beginning June 10th 2013

Cúl Camp is Cúl!
Kellogg’s Cúl Camp is now just 4 weeks away! From July 8th to 11th boys and girls between 6 and 12 will converge on Páirc Uí Chinnéide for our Annual Cúl Camp where the skills of hurling and football will be practiced and developed in a fun way every day. This is your last chance to return completed application forms to Ursula with payment by this Friday June 15th, or alternatively you can book online at  Bígí ann agus bígí cúl!

Barking and Basking!
The dogs were barking and we were basking in the beautiful evening sun, (or was it the other way around??), at Youghal Greyhound Track on Friday evening last as supporters of Killeagh GAA, Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile, Inch Rovers Ladies Football and Killeagh Camogie Clubs came out in force to have some fun and help to offset some of the debt that accrues in keeping Páirc Uí Chinnéide up to such a high standard. Many thanks are due to all those who bought tickets in support of this vital fundraiser, with special thanks to the many people who were unable to attend but still supported the venture by putting hands in pockets for €20. Your generosity is much appreciated, as it always is.

U-14 Hurling
Our Under 14 hurlers prepared for championship against Tracton (Thursday 13th @ 7.30 p.m. in Passage, with a very entertaining game against Cois Bríde in Tallow last Wednesday evening. On a glorious summer’s evening, and on a well-maintained pitch, with a firm but fair ref and two teams intent on playing good hurling, all factors added up to make a fine game. It was played in three twenty minute periods, which allowed our mentors an opportunity to assess each of the 21 players available to them who are pushing for selection for championship. We are now down to just six boys on the age (born in 1999), so more is expected from our younger players than might otherwise be the case. However, these boys continue to give it their best, with Dylan Hogan, Padraig Leahy and Olin Hennessy showing up very well at full-back, midfield and corner-forward respectively. While Cois Bríde eventually won by 3-11 to 2-11, the aim of the challenge game had been to assess what might be our best ‘championship’ team, so hopefully the selectors are now ready to face the challenge of Tracton. Go n-éirí libh, a buachaillí!

Under 16 Hurling
Killeagh 3-10 Imokilly 2-11
Our under 16 hurlers played a challenge match against Imokilly under 14(under the guidance of Killeagh’s Sean Crowley, GDA) on Saturday evening last. Our side were missing several key players due to exams and injury. Killian Treacy bagged 2 goals while David Ogbebor also raised the green flag. There was a great performance from our lads in what was a very competitive match.
