JHL Division 4: Killeagh 1-14 Dungourney 1-18
Junior ‘B’ Hurling C’ship: Eamonn Fleming Cup Killeagh 4-14 Fr. O’Neills 2-11
Killeagh overcame Fr. O’Neills in this tie which was played in Copper Alley, Youghal on Sunday morning, Sept 22nd at 11.00am. The management of this junior hurling squad were delighted with the fantastic turnout of eligible players for this encounter and used seventeen players in winning the game and securing a place in the quarter-finals of the competition. The team and their subs played very well through all areas of the pitch with the in-form Colm Crowley and Jerry Dullea catching the eye. O’Neills had no answer to Colm Crowley who cracked home the four goals for Killeagh and could have had a couple of more goals as well. Jerry Dullea ran himself to the ground for his team for the sixty minutes of the game and showed just how good a player he is if he could remain injury free. All in all it was a good day for the Killeagh squad as they now await completion of the remaining fixtures in the round for their next match in this competition.

Under 14 hurlers bring home the Doocey Cup
Saturday last saw a hive of activity in Páirc Uí Chinnéide as the conclusion of the East Cork Summer Hurling League took place. Six clubs participated in this league, the brainchild of Sean Crowley and Adrian Budds, over the past month, and all six – Cobh, St. Catherine’s, St. Colman’s, Youghal, Kiltha Óg and ourselves – came to Killeagh for the final two rounds of league games and three finals. The finals - the Patrick O’Mahony Final, the Dick Doocey Final and the Rory O’Connor Final – honour three great Killeagh GAA club members who each contributed in their own special way to the development of Killeagh GAA in the last century. Two rounds of league games had to be completed first before the pairings for the finals could be decdied. In Round 1, Kiltha Óg defeated Youghal by 3-7 to 0-9, St. Catherine’s beat Cobh 2-7 to 1-4, and Killeagh-Ita’s defeated St. Colman’s by 2-12 to 2-1, with Jamie Clifford and Sean Walsh scoring the goals. In Round 2, St. Catherine’s and St. Colman’s had facile victories over Kiltha Óg and Youghal respectively, while Cobh beat Killeagh-Ita’s by 0-11 to 1-4. This set up the scenario that the three finals were a repeat of the Round 1 games. In the Patrick O’Mahony final, Kiltha Óg repeated their earlier victory over Youghal, this time winning by 6-7 to 0-6. The A Final (for the Rory O’Connor Cup) was a cracking game between St. Catherine’s and Cobh, which ended level at normal time – Cobh 2-7, St. Catherine’s 3-4. In the first half of extra time both teams added one point each, but a goal for Cobh in the second half of extra time proved the diffference, and they secured the cup, presented by Rory’s brother John, on a scoreline of 3-9 to 3-6. The B Final between Killeagh-Ita’s and St. Colman’s was also a cracking affair, and not so much a game of two halves but of about five different swing periods. Killeagh-Ita’s got off to a flier by scoring 2-3 without reply in the first eight minutes, with Liam McCarthy bravely kicking home the first goal and Sean Walsh adding another within three minutes. Perhaps thinking that we had the game won, our boys fell asleep and allowed St. Colman’s to pilfer 3-1 without reply in a six minute spell between the 10th and 16th minute, before we stormed back to score the last four points of the half (Jamie Landers, Sean Walsh, Keane Budds and Jamie again) to lead by 2-7 to 3-1 at half time. The second half saw St. Colman’s playing with the wind and although we added some early points, two goals from Shane Finn saw St. Colman’s take the lead with time ticking away, leading by the unlikely scoreline of 5-2 to 2-10. Against the wind and under pressure, it didn’t look good for our boys but they showed great composure and determination to keep attacking and were rewarded with the equalising point from Keane Budds, the lead point from Barry Motherway and the insurance point from Dylan Hogan (the latter two members of our half-back line), to prevail by 2-13 to 5-2 when referee Jim Daly blew the final whistle. It was an exciting end to a great day’s hurling, and resulted in captain Jamie Landers receiving the Doocey Cup from the man himself, the great Dick Doocey. Well done to our boys for their perseverance, and it was just reward for their efforts and the efforts of their triumvirate of bainisteoiri Richie, Ken and Speedy.

Many thanks to all six teams for contributing to a wonderful day of action. Many thanks to our three referees Jim Daly, Jim Hennessy and John Kirby, and to all the parents and others who prepared and served food and refreshments (enough to feed the masses over and again) throughout the day. Credit to the O’Connor family members, Andrew O’Mahony and Dick Doocey for being present for the day, and a special thank you to organisers Sean Crowley and Adrian Budds whose teamwork and leadership ensured that the day was a great success.
Killeagh-Ita’s team: Fionn McDonnell, Daragh Geary, Daniel Hickey, James Kent, Barry Motherway, Dylna Hogan, Shane Kearney, Padraig Leahy, Keane Budds, Richie Long, Jamie Landers, Sean Walsh, Adrian Galvin, Jamie Clifford, Olin Hennessy, Kieran Daly, Liam McCarthy and Jack Wyse.
