We would like to congratulate Tracey Kennedy on receiving her latest accolade. The Gaelic Writer’s Association held their annual awards night on Friday last, October 3rd at the Jackson Court Hotel in Dublin. Among the awards they handed out was the PRO of the Year award which was awarded to Tracey in her role as PRO of Cork GAA. She was praised for her continued assistance to those covering GAA in the media. Tracey has been PRO for Cork GAA since December 2011. Well done Tracey from all at the club.
Wear the Green
We continue to ask the community to put up the Green and White in support of all our teams. Our junior ‘A’ footballers secured a fabulous ‘Four in a Row’ on Sunday in Midleton with an emphatic victory over Carrigtwohill in the East Cork Final. They also have a league final to contest on Thursday night, October 9th, against Lisgoold. This is a Div 1 league final and will be played in Killeagh at 8.00pm. Our junior ‘B’ footballers are still in the mix for a place in a league final as long as their league form continues. Our U21 hurlers have now reached the County Final after a comprehensive victory over Na Piarsaigh last Friday night in Pairc Ui Rinn.  It will be played in Pairc Ui Rinn on Friday October 17th at 6.15pm where they will take on Clonakilty. Our minor hurlers play Valley Rovers in a League semi-final double header at a time and venue yet to be decided. Please support all our teams. Be seen and wear the Green.

East Cork Junior A Football Championship Final Glenbower Rovers 5-10, Carrigtwohill 0-7
Glenbower Rovers reserved their best hour of football of 2014 for the O’Connor Motor Factors East Cork Junior A Football Final played in Clonmult Park, Midleton on Sunday October 5th last. The team played with purpose and vision all through, with some excellent scores (all but 0-2 from play) and great teamwork. After a sluggish enough start, with just one Brian McCarthy free after two minutes, we were awarded a penalty after 10 minutes but the Carrig keeper Eoghan O’Mahony made a great save from Brian’s spot kick. John O’Connor added a point on 13 minutes and then on 17 minutes Brian McCarthy rattled the net after a great team move. Carrig scored their first point on 19 minutes and Brian then kicked a great ’45 over. Our second goal was of the highest quality with Seamie Harnedy combining with Brendan Barry and John O’Connor and being in the right place to receive the return pass and bury another one in the onion bag. Carrig got two points to reduce the margin but then John O’Connor finished another move which was started by Kieran Lane at midfield and continued by Brendan Barry and Brian McCarthy. It put us three clear goals up and Sean Long’s free added to the cushion – 3-4 to 0-3 at half-time.
The second half saw a blistering opening ten minutes which killed off the game. Joe Deane was the real puppet-master, pulling all the strings and making his opponents look like Under 10s! He kicked two excellent points with his left and then gave a ‘Gooch-like’ through ball to John O’Connor to make it 4-7 to 0-4. He then passed to Seamie for an excellent point and when Sean Long availed of a mix up in the Carrig defence to score our fifth goal, it was game up. Carrig battled away and scored three points in the closing stages but Joe wasn’t finished, scoring two more beautiful points with his right foot (how many football All-Irelands would he have won in Kerry had he been born there?) to make the final score 5-10 to 0-7 when Pa Beausang blew his final whistle. Joe deservedly received the man-of-the-match accolade and Kieran Lane the cup, but this was an excellent team performance. Shane Scully was very assured in goals, Pa O’Brien, Ciaran O’Brien and Brendan Barry mopped up everything and distributed well from defence, while Seamie, Kieran, Brian, Johnno and Philip O’Neill were well over their men further up the field. Well done to this fine team and to their mentors Dave, Eric, Denis, Sean, James and bainisteoir supreme Declan Fogarty! The drive for five starts now!
Team: Shane Scully, Stephen Murphy, Cian Fogarty, Brendan Keniry, Pa O’Brien, Jerry Dullea, Ciaran O’Brien, Kieran Lane, Brendan Barry, Seamie Harnedy (1-1), Joe Deane (0-4), Sean Long (1-1), John O’Connor, (2-2), Brian McCarthy (1-2), Philip O’Neill.

Under 8’s round off their season
Our Under 8 boys finished off their 2014 campaign with the final Monster Blitz of 2014 in Killeagh on Saturday morning. Our sympathies go to the Steele family in Aghada on the tragic death of their son Robbie on Friday evening which meant that this blitz was moved to Killeagh at the last hour. Once again we had a great turn out of teams, some great football and the refreshments were better than ever! Thanks to everyone who has helped throughout the year – we’ve two Under 10 bitzes to round off the campaign over the next two Saturdays.

U13 and U14 teams back in action

Our Under 13 and Under 14 boys were back inside the white lines this week, with a football challenge against Youghal for our Under 14 boys on Thursday evening and a hurling challenge for our Under 13 boys at home to Bride Rovers on Saturday morning. Both games were very entertaining with little between the sides, and an opportunity was provided to use all players, which isn’t always possible for league and championship games.
