As part of the Gathering Festival the Fr Smyth Cup was played for on

cup with some beautiful intricate workmanship and designs on
it.Castlelyons started the game very brightly and with both sides
fielding very strong teams it produced a great match and fantastic
scores from both sides. C McGann had the first score of the match when
he pointed a free after 2 mins. Shortly after D Tobin scored 2 frees
to extend the lead before J Deane scored 1-01 to give Killeagh the
lead.Castlelyons dominated the match for the rest of the half and had
some great scores from R O'Regan,T Carroll,T McCarthy,A Fenton , D
Tobin,A Spillane and R Fenton to lead at half time by 0-13 to 1-02.
Killeagh upped their game in the second half and scored the first 2
points with some very determined play. A Spillane goaled for
Castlelyons when he flicked the ball to the net after a great line
ball from D Tobin to set up the match for a great finish with both
sides exchanging  scores. Killeagh scored 2 goals to get within 2
points of Castlelyons with 10 mins to go but a strong finish by
Castlelyons with points from M Spillane,R O'Regan,A Spillane and T
Carroll saw them win on a score of 1-20 to 3-11. This was a great

JB Hurling Championship

Castlelyons  1-13    Carrig Na bhFear  0-09

Castlelyons played Carrignavar in the 1st round of the JB Hurling
championship on Sat night last.The first half of the match was played
in a constant downpour which made hurling conditions very difficult
for both sides.Carrignavar were first to score when they pointed after
5 mins.A Fenton scored 3 points for Castlelyons in the next 10 mins to
edge us into the lead but with the rain falling non stop the match
turned into a struggle for both sides. S Moroney and R Feeney scored
points for Castlelyons in the last 5 mins to give Castlelyons a lead
of 0-05 to 0-03 at half time. Thankfully the rain stopped for the
second half and both sides were able to play better hurling as pitch
conditions dried out. D Tobin got the first score of the second half
when he pointed a free after 5 mins and with further points from A
Fenton,C O'Connell and R Feeney Castlelyons stretched out their lead.
When C O'Connell set up A Fenton with a great pass for a goal with 10
mins left Castlelyons were in control of this match. R Feeney and A
Fenton closed out the scoring with points in the last mins to leave
Castlelyons comfortable winners on a scoreline of  1-13 to 0-09. A
good performance considering the conditions with the backlines
fighting very hard for every ball and the forwards putting together
some good moves especially in the second half.
