Killeagh 1-16 Bishopstown 2-14

A fantastic round two game of Killeagh's league campaign which was played in Bishopstown on Sunday, March 8th. We lost the superb Brendan Barry in the 23rd minute to a straight red card for retaliation having being fouled himself. Despite this we were leading at half time with the score Killeagh 0-11 Bishopstown 1-06. Everybody was playing well particularly Philip O'Neill in his new position at centre forward. We were still leading up to the sixty-fifth minute and the game could have gone either way. It was a cruel blow to concede a winning goal and harder to take when it came in the fifth minute of injury time to give Bishopstown the win by a single point.

Team: B Rochford, C Fogarty, P O'Brien, M Fitzgerald, K Lane, B Barry, B Collins, S Treacy, A Walsh, D Cahill, P O'Neill, S Smiddy, E Keniry, S Long, D Landers. Sub: B Delaney

Castlelyons 3-11 Glenbower Rovers 0-07 On Friday evening last our U21 footballers headed to Castlelyons to take on the local side in the semi final of the East Cork U21 football championship. We were hoping to build on a great victory over Fr. O' Neills in the 1/4 final 2 weeks previously. However from the throw in we struggled to get to the tempo of the game. We were playing against the elements and we lost our inspirational full back, Darragh Cahill, who was outstanding in our 1/4 Final win, early in the game through injury. We proceeded to concede two goals and it took us until the 20 minute mark before we got into the game and were unlucky not to finish the half with two goal chances when the Castlelyons keeper made a great save from David Cahill and from the next attack Decy Long was pulled down in square, but Shane Smiddys effort from the spot-kick went over the bar and we finished the half with a score of 2-6 to 0-4. We had a mountain to climb in the second half but with the elements at our back we hoped for a quick start, however we didn't get it and while we continued to battle hard we couldn't or weren't allowed to get into our stride and finished the game on a losing score of 3-11 to 0-7. While Castlelyons were the better balanced team, the score line wasn't a true reflection of the game. Its very disappointing to go out of the championship without preforming as good as we are capable of and that we couldn't build on our 1/4 final display. Team 1. Colin Walsh, 2. Darragh O'Brien, 3.

The society had a very successful and enjoyable away weekend again this year. It took place over the weekend of March 6th/7th in Waterford. They stayed for two nights B&B in the Majestic Hotel and had an evening meal and presentation of prizes on Saturday night. They were well looked after by the hotel management and staff during their stay in a luxurious and relaxing environment. And so to the golf..... one name was head and shoulders above the rest, Eddie Hayes emerged as the dominant force over the two days of golf and to quote one golfer on Eddies performance..'he won by a country mile with the rest of us well behind him'. A total of twenty golfers played both Tramore Golf Club and Faithlegg Golf Club which was a great attendance for the society. Overall results were: 1st Eddie Hayes, 2nd Mike Landers, 3rd Ger Fitzgibbon, 4th Ann Rochford, 5th Ray Rochford.

Under 14s get off to a winning start

Rebel Óg Eastern A Fé 14 Football League

Sliabh Rua 2-4, Killeagh-Ita’s 5-3

After the disappointment of the last-minute cancellation of their opening football league game last Sunday, our Under 14 footballers were bursting for road on Saturday when they travelled to Belgooly to play Sliabh Rua in their opening game of this year’s league. Our opponents had played Kinsale last week in a local derby which they lost by two points, so we were going to need to be at our best to win. Our first half performance was exceptional with our defence very mean, especially Daniel Lucey and Cian McDonald in the full-back line and Robert Sinclair and Danny Cunningham in the half-back line. David Kelly, Karl O’Toole and Ryan McCarthy operated very effectively around the middle of the field, while Paul Delaney and Oisin McCarthy were flying up front. Richie Landers didn’t score at full-forward but he did an amount of foraging, blocking and harassing and this work led indirectly to many of our scores. Those scores in the first half were evenly spread between goals and points, three of each, with Paul Delaney scoring two of the goals and setting up David Kelly for the third. This gave us a 3-3 to 0-2 lead at half time. The second half saw our performance dip a little after Paul’s third goal gave us a four-goal cushion, and Sliabh Rua narrowed the gap to uncomfortable levels, until Robert Sinclair’s fine goal gave us a cushion once more. It finished 5-3 to 2-4 in our favour, and our first two points in what looks like being a competitive league. Next weekend it’s Féile Peil, with Killeagh as one of the eight venues for the A competition. We can go in now with a bit of confidence agus b’fhéídir go mbeidh bua nó dó againn!

Team: Robbie Treacy, Owen Cosgrove, Cian McDonald, Daniel Lucey, George Sinclair, Robert Sinclair (1-0), Danny Cunningham, Ryan McCarthy, David Kelly (1-1), Cathal Fitzgibbon, Olan Broderick, Oisin McCarthy (0-1), Paul Delaney (3-1), Richie Landers, Karl O’Toole, Dara Motherway, Darragh O’Connor, Tommy Noonan, Daniel Doherty, Christian Coughlan.

Under 16s make it a treble!

Rebel Óg Eastern A Fé 16 Football League

Killeagh-Ita’s 2-10, Erins Own 1-2

Following the victories of our Under 12 and Under 14 football teams away in Glenville and Belgooly on Saturday, our Under 16s made it a rare treble for our football teams in one weekend by defeating Erins Own on Sunday in Páirc Uí Chinnéide. This victory was secured with a convincing first-half performance which saw us convert most of our chances and use the slight breeze to good effect. Keane Budds and Sean Walsh were our chief scorers with Keane getting two goals and Sean kicking three points, two from play. Adrian Galvin and Richie Long also kicked fine scores, while the backs were well on top, with Dylan

Hogan and Jamie Landers manning the central positions well. Shane Kearney and Sean Broderick worked well together as a team and recycled the ball quickly into the forward line. Half time saw us lead by 2-6 to 0-0. The second half saw Erins Own display great spirit to battle back into the game with good scores, their goal coming from a penalty. However, Sean Walsh and Keane added further points to keep the margin comfortable. This was a win that will give our team some confidence before they face their next game away to Carrigtwohill.

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Kieran Daly, Dylan Hogan, Cian McDonald, Darragh Geary, Jamie Landers, Barry Motherway, Sean Broderick, Shane Kearney, Richie Long (0-1), Sean Walsh (0-6), Jack Wyse, Jamie Clifford, Keane Budds (2-2), Adrian Galvin (0-1), Olin Hennessy, James Kent, Andrew Foley, Liam McCarthy.
