Junior ‘A’ championship (Jamesy Kelleher Cup) Killeagh 1-11 Sarsfields 3-21
JHL Division 2 Killeagh 3-12 Fr. O’Neills 3-09 played in Killeagh on Wednesday June 19th
Killeagh senior hurlers played their second round tie of the Cork County Senior Hurling Championship against Courcey Rovers in Pairc Ui Rinn on Saturday evening last, June 29th 2013. They were missing a couple of key players through injury for the match and this led to changes in personnel prior to the start of the game. There was a very good crowd in attendance on a lovely evening for championship hurling. The game started later than expected due to extra time being played in the curtain raiser. Once the game got underway Killeagh were first off the mark with a point on two minutes from Michael Byrne. This was followed by another Killeagh point after five minutes from Denis Walsh. Courcey replied very quickly with a goal from corner forward Cian Lordan. Killeagh scored another point after seven minutes through Philip O’Neill. Courcey then picked off a number of points without reply and, after twenty minutes they led by 1-05 to 0-03. Andy Walsh scored a point from play for Killeagh after twenty-one minutes before Courcey added two further points after twenty-five minutes of play. Andy Walsh (free) and Padraig Carroll (play) added points for Killeagh on twenty-six and twenty-seven minutes respectively. Another killer blow for Killeagh before half-time when Courcey found the net for the second time before Brendan Barry took the last score of the first-half with a brilliant point from play. The score at half-time was Killeagh 0-07 to Courcey Rovers 2-07.
As the second half got underway, Killeagh got a great start with a goal and a point from Sean Long, following good work for both scores from Michael Byrne, inside the first five minutes. Courcey added two points to their tally before second half substitute for Killeagh, Eoghan Keniry, pointed a free after nineteen minutes. Courcey tagged on three points in succession before Eoghan stepped up to point another free after twenty-five minutes of the second half played. Killeagh then lost Denis Walsh following his second yellow card of the game and also, it seemed, any chance of a win. Bernard Rochford took a close range free for Killeagh which was deflected over the bar on twenty-nine minutes of the half and when Courcey scored their final point it looked like being the last score of the game on the sixtieth minute. From the puck-out Joe Budds collected the ball, turned his opponent and headed for the Courcey goal and drove the ball to the net. Sadly, the referee called a halt to the game on the puck-out and Courcey won the game on a score of 2-14 to 2-11. Killeagh now meet Ballinahassig in their pursuit of remaining in the Championship top flight next season.

Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Notes
Killeagh/Itas 3-20 Dungarvan 4-10
Our minors played the final challenge match before they take on Na Piarsaigh in Championship. We made the trip down to Dungarvan on Tuesday evening last and won on a scoreline 3-20 to 4-10. Our lads started very well and goals from Gary Leahy and Eoghan Keniry left Killeagh leading 2-13 to 0-6 at the interval. Some forced changes in the second half disrupted our shape but some very well taken points and a crucial goal from Eric Murphy made sure we ran out winners. A great display from our lads as we dismissed a strong Dungarvan team which leaves us in great shape for our upcoming Championship match against Na Piarsaigh on Tuesday night in Rostellan. Support will be very appreciated in which promises to be a very exciting match.
Killeagh/Itas 3-10 Youghal 1-9
Our Under 16 footballers took on our close rivals Youghal in a league fixture on Thursday evening last. A great performance from all our lads as they ran out winners by 7 points in the end. Playing with the aid of the wind in the first half Killeagh left the field leading by 2-7 to 1-3 at halftime. Some very good points from our lads and goals from Darragh O’Brien and Keane Kelly-Budds left the difference 7 points at the interval. Killeagh secured the win in the second half with some great defending as well as scoring 1-3 with Darragh O’Brien scoring his second goal of the game.
Killeagh/Itas 2-14 Carrigtwohill 2-10
Our hurlers played Carrigtwohill in a challenge on Friday night last which proved to be a very competitive match. We ended up winning on a scoreline of 2-14 to 2-10 in what was a very good result. At the interval the scores were level 1-8 each with David Ogbebor getting the goal for Killeagh. We continued our good play in the second half and a goal from Kevin Murphy along with great defending allowed us to win comfortably by 4 points.

Fé 14 Update
Not a good four days for our Under 14 boys as they succumbed to two heavy defeats, firstly to Nemo Rangers in Under 14 Hurling Championship on Wednesday evening in Midleton, and then to St. Vincent’s in Under 14 Football League on Sunday at noon in Páirc Uí Chinnéide. In the hurling we never really got going against a physically bigger and stronger side who had good hurlers in every line of the field, although we kept battling to the very end, with Padraig Leahy getting a late consolation goal. We started the match with only six Under 14s, and by mid-way through the second half we had lost two of those, Alec Fitzgerald and Shane Kearney to injury (best wishes to both boys as they recover from arm and shoulder injuries respectively), to finish with only four boys on the age. This meant that a difficult task became an impossible task. Final score: Nemo Rangers 4-14, Killeagh-Ita’s 1-2.
Team: Fionn McDonnell, Barry Motherway, Dylan Hogan, Cian McDonald, Alec Fitzgerald, Daniel Hickey, Shane Kearney, Keane Kelly Budds (0-1), Padraig Leahy (1-0), Richie Long, Sean Walsh (0-1), Ryan McCarthy, Dara Motherway, Adrian Galvin, Olin Hennessy. Subs used: Kieran Daly, James Kent, Mark O’Callaghan
On Sunday at noon we welcomed the giants of St. Vincent’s to Páirc Uí Chinnéide. This really was a case of men against boys, as the city men were an average of 4-6 inches taller and 6-8 kg stronger player for player. They also had some nice footballers, and unfortunately for us we were unable to compete with them, although we did finish with a well-taken goal from Keane Budds.
Team: Jamie Clifford, Kieran Daly, Dylan Hogan, Liam McCarthy, Jack Wyse, Sean Walsh, Padraig Leahy, Keane Kelly Budds (1-2), Adrian Galvin, Richie Long, Daniel Hickey, Fionn McDonnell, Barry Motherway, Olin Hennessy, James Kent. Subs: Andrew Foley and Darragh Geary.

Fé 12 Iomáint
Our Under 12 hurlers returned to winning ways on Thursday evening when they welcomed Eire Og to Páirc Uí Chinnéide. Playing on our new all-weather pitch was a new experience for most our team, but they hurled well throughout, and got a well-deserved victory thanks to a late goal from Ryan McCarthy. Final score: Killeagh-Ita’s 1-2, Eire Óg 0-4.
Panel: Robbie Treacy, Daniel Lucey, Cian McDonald, Karl O’Toole, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Robert Sinclair, Oisin McCarthy, George Sinclair, Olan Broderick, Danny Cunningham, Richie Landers, Dara Motherway, Ryan McCarthy, Darragh O’Connor, Tommy Noonan, Liam Hoogstad, Ben O’Connor, Jonathan Guerin, Ciaran Leahy.
