Pairc Ui Chinneide welcomed a huge crowd to its fabulous facilities for the Red FM Cork senior hurling tie between Killeagh and Youghal. A special word of thanks and praise to the volunteers who managed the visit of over 250 vehicles to the grounds and who organised a safe and orderly entrance and exit without too much trouble to visitors and neighbours alike. The pitch was in superb condition and despite the sometimes poor weather recently and during the game, it stood up to the test of an eagerly awaited and well-fought game. The game started with both teams trying hard to gain the advantage and with five minutes gone, Youghal were in front by the narrowest of margins with the score at 0-2 to 0-01. They both continued to trade points in a tight game but after twelve minutes, Killeagh gained the upper hand when good pressure paid off  in the form of a goal from Andy Walsh to leave the scores at 1-02 to 0-04. On twenty minutes the teams were level with Killeagh 1-03 to Youghal’s 0-06. On twenty-eight minutes they both added two points each to their tally to be level again, Killeagh 1-05 to Youghal 0-08. But Killeagh finished the half in better form by adding two more points to lead at half time with the score Killeagh 1-07 to Youghal 0-08. The second half resumed when the teams emerged from the dressing rooms and they both scored two points each to leave the scores at Killeagh 1-09 to Youghal 0-10 on six minutes. Killeagh were gaining the advantage and on fourteen minutes were ahead by four points with the scores Killeagh 1-12 to Youghal 0-11. On fifteen minutesYoughal lost their corner back through a second yellow card and so went Youghals strong challenge in the game as Killeagh began to stretch them in all directions. After twenty minutes play of the second half, Killeagh had 1-14 on the board to Youghals 0-12 points and five minutes later had added two more points to their tally. By the end of the game, Killeagh added two further points to Youghal’s solitary point to leave the scores at the end, Killeagh 1-18 to Youghal 0-13.

O'Loughlin Kearney Cup
Killeagh-Ita's hosted the O'Loughlin Kearney Cup from 2013 on Saturday last and welcomed teams from Aghada, Cois Bhride and Lismore. The weather was certainly against us but fair play to all involved for serving up some fantastic hurling. Killeagh-Ita's were victorious in their first game against Aghada. This was certainly a game of two halves and was close to the final whistle. Killeagh-Ita's grew in confidence from this victory and secured a good win against Cois Bhride who battled bravely in their second game.  Lismore proved strong opposition in this round robin competition final game but Killeagh-Ita's were not going to be denied and when the final whistle blew there were leaps of joy from the boys in green. Killeagh-Ita's had retained the cup.
Killeagh Ita's team:
Sean Meade, Sean O'Riordan, Colm Leahy, Dylan McCarthy, Darragh O'Brien, Fionn Murphy, Ruairi Mackey, Jack O'Connor, Pearce Geary, Ben Walsh, Barry Walsh, Ethan O'Driscoll, Conor Burns
