Junior 'A' Football

The launch of the Michael O'Connor Motor Factors sponsored East Cork Junior 'A' Football Championship took place at the home of the champions for the last four years Glenbower Rovers last Friday night.

Glenbower Rovers Vice Chairman Padraig McGrath welcomed all the teams and he looked forward to a great campaign which he hoped would end in an historical five in a row for his Club.

The East Cork Board chairman Richard Fitzgerald expressed his thanks to the Killeagh Club for hosting the event. He then went on to thank Michael O'Connor and his family for their generous sponsorship over the years as he went on to highlight the O'Connor's lifelong connection to East Cork GAA and of course to their club Erin's Own. Richard wished all the clubs well in the competition and welcomed back Cloyne from the intermediate grade; he also extended a welcome to Castlelyons who won last years County Junior 'B' Championship and to their neighbours Bride Rovers who won the East Cork Junior 'B' title last year.

Juvenile Notes:

Table Quiz Ticks All The Right Boxes

Almost 200 primary school children (46 teams of 4) packed into Killeagh Hall on Thursday evening last for the second annual Killeagh-Ita’s Primary Schools Table Quiz. 100 questions later, the collective brains were well and truly fried, and the Castlemartyr NS team led by Ciara Steele romped home in first place with a fantastic 97% strike rate. Castlemartyr NS also had the team in joint second, tied with the Inch NS boys Robbie, Eon, Colm and Ciaran, while two teams from Bunscoil, Youghal tied for third place. Many thanks to all the schools who supported the quiz, and to all who helped in the preparation and the running of the event. Over €800 was raised which will benefit both Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile Club and East Cork Rapid Response, who were our chosen charity for this year’s event.[CM]

Training

Training for all players continues this week as per text notifications. If, for any reason, a player cannot turn up for a training session it is very important to let your trainer know that you will be absent.

Minors

Killeagh/It'as welcomed Carrigtwohill to Killeagh on the Eve of Saint Patrick's Day as preparations for championship continue.

The spoils went to Carrigtwohill on the night however the concern at the moment is not winning challenge matches but finding out where our strengths lie. Killeagh/Ita's and Carrigtwohill traded scores until the final whistle blew resulting in a score of 3-7 to 3-19.

The goal scores for Killeagh/Ita's were Kian Budds, Dan Landers and Padraig Delaney. Dan also scored 3 points, with Killian registering 2, Shane and Sam one each. We would like to thank Paudie Kearney who officiated on the night.

Team: D Cusack, F Smiddy, J O'Rourke, K Cantillon, J Landers, C Deane, E Barron, K Treacy, P Delaney, E Fitgibbon, D Landers, S Desmond, K Budds, A Leahy, D Agobhor . Subs A Walsh, C Broderick, S Kearney, L Fogarty[OS]

U13/U14 Hurling Challenges Honours Shared

U13 Sarsfields 4-10, Killeagh-Ita’s 3-7

U14 Killeagh-Ita’s 2-7, Sarsfields 1-6

Under 14 hurlers;

Sarsfields brought two teams to a sun-kissed Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Saturday last for simultaneous challenge games against our Under 13 and Under 14 teams. Our Under 14 boys had an impressive win, although both sides were depleted as a result of the Imokilly Under 14 game in Fermoy and injuries. In their absence some of our other players came to the fore - Aaron O’Connell played a stormer at corner-back, while Owen Cosgrove scored a fine goal from midfield. Cian McDonald and Daniel Lucey had great battles with their opponents at either end of the field, with Daniel’s efforts rewarded with 1-1 and good support play. Cathal Fitzgibbon worked really well on the left wing, and David Kelly caught some great possession and distributed well. Darragh O’Connor scored a fine point from corner-forward and Tommy Noonan battled well in the other corner. All in all, a very pleasing performance for Ger, Michael and Padraig.

Team: Dara Motherway, Aaron O’Connell, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Danny Cunningham, Robert Sinclair, Karl O’Toole, Oisin McCarthy, Owen Cosgrove, David Kelly, Olan Broderick, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Tommy Noonan, Daniel Lucey, Darragh O’Connor.[CM]

Under 13 hurlers;

The Under 13 team had a great battle with their opposition before eventually losing out but Donie and John were pleased with the effort and the performance overall. Padraig Landers was solid at full-back, Robbie Treacy hurled well at centre-back while Ben O’Connor carried the main scoring threat up front.

Team: George Walsh, Ben Jennings, Padraig Landers, Colin Desmond, Brian Murphy, Robbie Treacy, David Collins, Ciaran Leahy, Paul Kent, Remy Bernard, Christian Coughlan, Ben O’Connor, Ciaran O’Rourke, Ryan Farquhar, Daniel Doherty, Darragh Buckley, Evan Lane, Colm Treacy.[CM]
