Juvenile News:
Fé 13 Iomáint Killeagh-Ita’s 2-5 Aghabullogue 0-5
At the end of this exciting game on Monday evening last in Páirc Uí Chinnéide, reiteoir Jim Daly (well in control as usual) commented that the game was played exactly the way you’d want to see hurling played – with great skill, commitment and effort from both teams. Our boys came out on top at the end of the hour, but any result was possible up to the final minute when Olan Broderick’s penalty finally put paid to the brave challenge of our visitors from Aghabullogue. The game started with chances for both teams and while the tackling and blocking was excellent from both teams, scoring was limited. Aghabullogue got the first point after 4 minutes, but it wasn’t until the 20th minute that the next score came, with Dara Motherway, who had a fine game, firing over our first point. David Kelly quickly added a fine goal, and Aghabullogue replied with a pointed free. Robert Sinclair got a fine point just on the half-time whistle to give us a 1-2 to 0-2 lead. The one blight on the first half for our boys was the enforced withdrawal of Paul Delaney through injury when he had been hurling well at wing back. However his replacement Karl O’Toole played really well until he also had to retire injured towards the end.

The second half followed the same pattern as the first with scores hard to come by. Aghabullogue added a pointed free and in a two-minute period midway through the half points from Olan Broderick and busy sub Ciaran Leahy put us ahead by 1-4 to 0-3. Our opponents replied with two points of their own to leave just two points between the teams, until the returning Ryan McCarthy, who had been excellent at centre-back before being replaced with a hand injury, popped up in the forwards to score a crucial point. After this came Olan’s late well-struck penalty to finally ensure victory for our team. Well played everyone, this was a good team performance, with Cathal Fitzgibbon, Aaron O’Connell, Cian McDonald and Danny Cunningham doing loads of work. Best wishes to Paul on his recovery from injury.

Fé 14 Iomáint Challenge: Lismore 3-10, Killeagh-Ita’s 4-5
A depleted Under 14 squad travelled to Lismore on Thursday evening to take on Lismore in a challenge game which was a very useful exercise for both teams. Our first half performance was patchy with just two goals (from Andrew Foley and Richie Long) to show, as against 2-6 for Lismore. This was in spite of the fact that two of our best players in that first half were defenders Kieran Daly and Darragh Geary. We performed better in the second half, with six different players getting on the scoresheet (good points from Richie Long, Dara Motherway, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Richie Landers and James Kent, goals from Adrian Galvin and a penalty from Richie Long). Keep up the hurling boys!
Team: Darragh O’Connor, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Kieran Daly, Darragh Geary, Dylan Hogan, Barry Motherway, Cathal Fitzgibbon (0-1), Adrian Galvin (1-0), Richie Landers (0-1), Ryan McCarthy, Richie Long (2-1), Andrew Foley (1-0), James Kent (0-1), Owen Cosgrove. Subs: Aaron O’Connell, Padraig Leahy, Daniel Lucey, Dara Motherway (0-1).

U11 Hurling
The Killeagh U-11 hurlers had a very busy week which started with a league game at home to Ballinora on Thursday evening.  This was a very competitive game with the Killeagh boys finishing well on top following a great team performance. 
This was followed on Saturday by the Ber Ryan Tournament hosted by Lismore GAA Club.  After a very slow start resulting in disappointing loss to the eventual winners Coshla Gaels of Limerick the Killeagh lads had comprehensive wins against Lismore and Brickey Rangers thus qualifying for the plate final.  Our opponents were our near neighbours Youghal.  The plate final was a very competitive affair with both teams giving their all.  Having played with the slight aid of the wind in the first half Killeagh went in at the break ahead by 4 points.  The second half was very even with Youghal piling on the pressure and scoring a goal to bring margin to 1 point going into the last minutes but Killeagh dug deep and showed great courage and resolve to hold out and take home the spoils by the smallest of margins.  Ben Budds was ever composed between the sticks for Killeagh, with George Walsh leading a rock solid full back line supported doggedly by Jack Flanagan and Darragh O’Leary in the corners.  Evan Lane played a pivotal role at number 6 with Aaron Fitzgibbon and Daniel Walsh sweeping forward with style on either wing.  Paidi Mackey was an engine house in midfield with Jamie Fogarty playing a captains part beside him.  The half forward line was ably led by Colm Treacy with David Buckley and David Buttimer showing great style on the wings.  In front of goal Colm Landers and Rory Lynch proved a handful for the defence as a two man inside line while Eoin Brenner named at full forward played a free role around midfield picking up some great broken ball.  Many thanks to our hosts in Lismore for a very enjoyable day, and well done to a very talented and determined bunch of young men from Killeagh.
