Last week proved to be a very busy week for our minor team who played three games in six days in both codes. Next week is looking similar as we begin the week with a hurling challenge game against Carrigtwohill at home on Monday night.

Killeagh/Ita's V St Colemans.

On Monday 9th March we welcomed St Colemans to Pairc Ui Chinneide for a hurling challenge game under lights. It was a bitterly cold night, however this did not deter our lads who took on the task at hand and played some lovely hurling. The starting fifteen was significantly different at the end of the game as the subs bench was emptied to give everybody some match time. It proved to be a very entertaining game with Killeagh/Ita's wining comfortably in the end. The score at full time was 3-11 to 1-11. Thanks also to Arthur Murphy for taking the time to carry out refereeing duties.

Team: Darren Cusack, Emmet Barron, Jack O'Rourke, Kenneth Cantillon, Christy Coughlan, Darragh O' Brien, Kevin Murphy, Cathal Deane, Padraig Delaney, Sam Desmond, Killian Treacy, Jack Mercuchev, Dave Ogebebor, Andrew Leadhy and Dan Landers. Subs: Fergal Smiddy, Luke Fogarty, Kian Budds, Shane Kearney, Jamie Clifford, Aaron Walsh, Eoin Fitzgibbon.

Killeagh/Ita's V Youghal.

Football was the order of the night when we visited our near neigbhours on Thursday 12th. This was the minor's second league game of the season. The conditions underfoot were anything but good however our players gallantly rose to the challenge. We were leading quite comfortably at half time on a score- line of 2-3 to 0-3. Darren Cusack had put away two cracking goals, with Dan Landers tacking on two points and Aaron Walsh one. We were delighted that Darren had left enough in the tank after competing in the Ballycotton 10 on the previous Sunday, where he came 2nd in the junior men's section. Congratulations Darren. The second half got underway with everybody in attendance dreaming of going home for a much needed cup of tea to warm up. Unfortunately the second half of the game was marred with a very nasty incident which saw Christy Coughlan having to leave Magners Hill and head to the CUH to receive medical attention. When play resumed Youghal were reduced to 14 players as the offending player had received a straight red card for his offence. Fergal Smiddy took the field to replace Christy. The Killeagh/Ita's boys proved to be an unstoppable force and we saw Padraig Delaney score an impressive 1-2. Dan and Aaron added to their first half scores and scored another point each in the second half. The referee Jim Hennessy finally blew for full time before the heavens opened and we headed home on a full time score of 3-7 to 0-12.

Team: Luke Fogarty, Jamie Landers, Jack O'Rourke, Kenneth Cantillon, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Emmet Barron, Christy Coughlan, Dave Ogebobor , Darren Cusack, Padraig Delaney, Dan Landers, Cathal Deane, Shane Kearney, Andy Leahy, Aaron Walsh. Subs: Fergal Smiddy for Christy Coughlan, Cullen Ryan-Hyde for Jamie Landers and Cian Budds for Shane Kearney

Killeagh/Ita's V Carrigtwohill

The minor's final game of the week saw them making their way to Carrigtwohill to play them in football league. Unfortunately we only had 14 players so had to concede to Carrigtwohill. However the numerical disadvantage didn't put off our footballers who battled on valiantly. It was wonderful to see Christy on the sideline cheering on the boys and we look forward to seeing him back on the pitch soon. Carrigtwohill were the first to score notching up two goals before we registered any score. However we soon found our scoring legs. This morning proved very informative from the point of view of potential goalies or not! Over the 60 mins we saw a change of personnel five time as a third of the team got to stand between the goal posts. Some hands proving more secure than others. Scores were traded back and forth until the final whistle with our boys playing very good football. We were very unfortunate not to win on the score board and Carrigtwohill finished on a score of 4-5 with Killeagh/Ita's finishing on 1-12.

Team : Dave Ogebobor 0-2, Shane Kearney, Jack O Rourke, Cullen Ryan-Hyde, Jack Mercuchev, Emmet Barron, Kenneth Cantillon, Cathal Deane 0-2, Dan Landers 0-3, Padraig Delaney 0-4, Darren Cusack, Eoin Fitzgibbon, Andrew Leahy 1-1, Aaron Walsh [Olivia O'Rourke]

Féile Peil Group 8 in Páirc Uí Chinnéide

Féíle Football Fever In Fine Fields Follows Friday’s Fair !

After the heavy rains of Thursday, it didn’t look like we would be able to host 6 teams for seven games of football on Saturday in Féile Peil. However, the fine drying conditions of Friday allowed the field assessors to pass two of their three pitches as playable and so the games began on schedule on Saturday morning at 11.00. In Group 1, Carrigaline began with a facile victory over Erins Own, while our Under 14 boys played a great game against Midleton but ultimately fell short by 2-9 to 2-1. Richie Landers and David Kelly (penalty) were our goalscorers although we were unfortunate to lose Daniel Lucey to injury

early in this game. In the second series of games Na Piarsaigh beat Erins Own and Midleton overcame Mitchelstown to build an unassailable lead in Group 2. The third series of games saw Carrigaline defeat Na Piarsaigh in the Group 1 head-to-head, while our team played Mitchelstown. Although we couldn’t qualify for the final our boys played excellent football from back to front, with Paul Delaney, Richie Landers, Ciaran O’Rourke, David and Ryan McCarthy on the scoresheet, and all 24 of our panel getting some game time. Bainisteoiri Tom and Colm and their selectors Alan and Denis were delighted with the performance collectively of the team, with strong evidence of training ground practice being applied in match situations. Hopefully this team can make a good impression in league and/or championship in 2015!

While the games were going ahead, inside was a hive of activity with food and refreshments to be served to all teams and supporters. This was as much of a team effort as the on-field activities so many thanks to all the parents who brought food in all forms and stayed to help with the catering and wash up. Ar scáth a chéile …

Panel: Robbie Treacy, Daniel Lucey, Cian McDonald, Owen Cosgrove, George Sinclair, Robert Sinclair, Danny Cunningham, Ryan McCarthy, Karl O’Toole, Olan Broderick, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Oisin McCarthy, David Kelly, Richie Landers, Paul Delaney, Dara Motherway, Tommy Noonan, Darragh O’Connor, Aaron O’Connell, Ciaran Leahy, Christian Coughlan, Ciaran O’Rourke, Remy Bernard, Brian Murphy.[C Motherway]

Under 16 hurlers get going with a win

Ballygarvan 0-11, Killeagh-Ita’s 4-13

Many thanks to the mothers (and fathers) who forsook their Mother’s Day to drive to Ballygarvan on Sunday morning for our opening hurling game of 2015 – a challenge against the locals. This was a good game of hurling with our hosts holding the upper hand for the first twenty minutes. Two goals before half-time from Keane Budds and Jamie Clifford gave us a lead of 2-6 to 0-5 at half time, and the second half was almost a carbon copy as we scored 2-7 to Ballygarvan’s 0-6. Best score of the first half came from Olin Hennessy with an excellent point from out near the left-hand sideline. Adrian Galvin and Andrew Foley were the ‘dara leath’ goalscorers while Sean Broderick, Jamie Landers, James Kent and Dylan Hogan hunted very well for the ball. Shane Kearney, Keane Budds, Sean Walsh, Padraig Leahy and Richie Long scored lovely points, while Fionn McDonnell made good saves at the other end. Tosach maith …
