Intermediate Hurling League.

On Saturday evening last we travelled to Ballyhea to play our last league game of the year. Short quite a number of regulars and fielding a very young side we were no match for the locals who were victorious 4.22 to 4.14.This win puts Ballyhea top of the league and although we are only 1 point behind with our full complement of games played we will not qualify for the league final.

International Hurling Festival;

The inaugural International Hurling Festival was held over last weekend in Galway and also incorporated an 11 aside all star competition. An U12 competition was held on Saturday as part of the festivities and the St Colman’s team represented Cork on the day. We played 3 non competitive games in the morning against Antrim and 2 Galway representatives. It was a very enjoyable and well organised experience for the lads and the highlight of it all was being paraded into Pearse Stadium Salthill prior to the final of the Festival featuring St Gabriel’s and Kilburn of London. Thank You to those who travelled to look after the team and also to everyone in Galway for their hospitality on what was a very enjoyable day.


The development of our new facility in River St is progressing very well and on target. The grounds have been cleared and we are now ready for work to commence on the Children’s Playground also the base for the 2 hurling alley’s are in pace and await delivery. The exterior of the building is nearing completion and the plumbing and electrical contractors moved in this week. If you cannot call over for a look why not check out the updated photo gallery on our website where a pictorial account of the progress can be found.

All-Ireland Replay;

Best of luck to Paudie and the rest of the Cork Senior Hurlers ahead of the weekend’s replay. While we were unfortunate not to win the first day out we all agree that we have a lot of room for improvement and hope that the team will more than do themselves justice on Saturday. Best of luck in your quest for a ticket and as the saying goes “nothing beats being there “.
