Cork County U21 Hurling Semi-Final : Killeagh-Ita’s 3-17 Na Piarsaigh 1-07
Cork County Minor Hurling Final Replay: Killeagh-Ita’s 2-14 Sarsfields 3-12
Minors Fall Short in Epic Replay
Sarsfields 3-14, Killeagh-Ita’s 2-16
Our brave minor boys gave us another hour of drama and excitement along with Sarsfields in Páirc Ui Rinn on Monday evening last in the Rebel Óg Premier 1 Carrigaline Court Minor Hurling Final Replay. This game was every bit as good as the drawn game, with brilliant scores, tackling and commitment from both sides. It was a hard one to lose, given that we had two chances to draw level in the last 2 minutes, as well as other opportunities throughout the game. Darragh O’Brien’s unavailability through injury was a big loss to our team, although everyone gave of their very best and no-one could be questioned on their effort or perseverance. Andrew Leahy and Dan Landers were our goalscorers, but we had heroes throughout the field, with Kevin Murphy, Killian Treacy, Padraig Walsh and Brendan Delaney again showing great heart and skill from first to last. Shane Smiddy and Bobby McCarthy, our joint captains, led by example with brilliant displays, while Colin Walsh in goal gave another outstanding performance (couldn’t stop any of the 3 goals conceded) and Eoghan Keniry was back to his brilliant best once again. It is of course disappointing to lose by a point after over two hours of hurling, but all these boys on the panel and their mentors Niall, Colm and Brendan can hold their heads high after an outstanding year in which they gave us great thrills throughout. There are four years of Under 21 to look forward to for the Under 18s on the team, including a County Final on October 11th against Clonakilty. For the Under 16s and 17s, there’s next year’s Minor campaign to be planning for, no doubt ye will give it your best shot!
Team: Colin Walsh, Jack O’Rourke, Bobby McCarthy, Eoin O’Connor, Kevin Murphy, Darragh Cahill, Brendan Delaney, Cathal Deane, Eoghan Keniry, Padraig Walsh, Gary Leahy, Shane Smiddy, Andrew Leahy, Dan Landers, Killian Treacy. Subs used: Padraig Delaney, Dan Smiddy.

Congrats to Cork’s Greatest Team
So Kilkenny proved themselves (as if there was ever any doubt) to be the greatest hurling team of all time in defeating Tipperary in Páírc an Chrócaigh on Saturday evening last, and Brian Cody’s statue is getting bigger by the year! However, we have our own team in Cork that can match anything the Kilkenny hurlers can do, and they are our Ladies Football team. Since 2005 they have played in nine All-Ireland Senior Football Finals and won all nine. Surely their performance in coming back from the dead against Dublin on Sunday last (10 points down with 15 minutes to go) was their greatest ever, and proves beyond doubt that they are the greatest Cork GAA team of all time, bar none. Very few of us were around in 1941-1946 to recall that great Cork hurling team, but these girls are incomparable. How lucky we are that we’ve had Inch Rovers players on the team from the start, with Ann Marie Walsh, our 2013 captain, and Annie Walsh, making great contributions in the last few years. But surely the remarkable achievement of Angela Walsh in winning her ninth All-Ireland Ladies Football title (along with others on the team) just two weeks after winning a Camogie All-Ireland is something that people will be talking about in fifty years time (when Angela might still be playing!). Let’s get that statue to Eamonn Ryan built quickly, and perhaps our City Council might shortly see fit to give this “Laoch” the much-deserved Freedom of Cork! Well done to you all, you are SIMPLY THE BEST!

Under 8s Have Fun In The Sun!

U7 & U8
Too hot for some at the end of September! Would you believe it? On Saturday last the sun shone strongly while more than 300 boys aged 7 and 8 had the best day ever in Páirc Uí Chinnéide at the final Under 8 Hurling Monster Blitz, organised as usual with super efficiency by Sean Crowley and Shane Supple.
Killeagh played host to the last U7 and U8 monster hurling blitz of the year in unseasonably warm conditions. Twenty five teams showcased plenty of skill over the three games. Killeagh-Itas played Watergrasshill, St. Catherine's and Castlelyons. The boys showed great determination in all three games and certainly deserved their medals, presented by Cork All-star Seamus Harnedy. Seamus was very generous with his time, taking photos and signing autographs for many of the kids.  Seamie is a great role-model for these young boys, and his interest and dedication to his ‘ambassadorial’ role is obvious, given that he was one of the last to leave when all had settled at 1.00 p.m. on Saturday. Many thanks are also due to all the parents of the Killeagh Under 8 boys who helped with the catering as usual, and who had an extra job on Saturday as they went about their “Copper Collection” with a smile and a thank you! Well done to everyone once again on many jobs well done. A day to remember for boys and their families! Well done boys for all your hard work in training.
