Killeagh GAA Club hosted a very successful cardiac screening day in the clubs complex. It was held on Saturday May 9th and was very well attended by members and non-members of the club. The club would like to thank Advanced Medical Services for carrying out the screening and also thank most sincerely our Vice Chairman, Mr. Padraig McGrath who organised the service at the club.

Cheque Presentation from Killeagh Camogie Club

Killeagh Camogie Club recently made a generous contribution to the Killeagh GAA Club requesting that the funds be put towards the development of the club. Both clubs use the wonderful facilities at Pairc Ui Chinneide and both clubs have been witness to the many improvements and continued development of the grounds, pitches and club buildings. Killeagh GAA Club committee decided that the welcome donation of €3000 from the camogie club should be used towards the forthcoming annual payment of the clubs development loan. Our photograph shows Killeagh GAA Club Chairman, Mr. Kieran Scully receiving a cheque of €3000 from Killeagh Camogie Club President, Mrs. Sheila Spillane. Also attending the presentation were members of the committees from both clubs.[KS]

Juvenile Notes:

Under 16 Football Update

Our Under 16 footballers played two more games in the Eastern A Football League in the past week. A close encounter with Fr. O’Neills on Wednesday evening in Ahavine ended with the home side winning by 2-7 to 2-4, although if both sides had brought their shooting boots the scoreline would surely have been much bigger and could even have ended in our favour. Dylan Hogan was our star player at full back, while Olin Hennessy made some great saves in goal. On Sunday evening Sliabh Rua came to Páirc Uí Chinnéide for a match played in the worst weather conditions of the whole weekend, with driving wind and rain spoiling the game for players and the few hardy spectators who braved the elements. Regardless of weather Sliabh Rua were the much better side, but they also seemed to adapt better to the conditions and finished well ahead by 5-10 to 1-2, with Fionn McDonnell top scoring on 1-1. This game marked Padraig McCarthy’s first start after his return and he gave an excellent performance in limiting the damage caused by Sliabh Rua’s most dangerous forward.

Panel: Olin Hennessy, Kieran Daly, Dylan Hogan, Liam McCarthy, Barry Motherway, Shane Kearney, Padraig Leahy, Jamie Landers, Richie Long, Adrian Galvin, Keane Kelly Budds, Sean Broderick, Fionn McDonnell, Jamie Clifford, Jack Wyse, Sean Walsh, Padraig McCarthy, James Kent, Andrew Foley, Darragh Geary

U14

Fé 14 Premier 2 Hurling Championship Killeagh-Ita’s 3-12, Eire Óg 1-10

Killeagh-Ita’s Under 14 boys successfully negotiated a tricky first round encounter in the Rebel Óg Premier 2 Hurling Championship in Ballinure last Saturday afternoon, eventually prevailing over a hard-working Éire Óg side. Éire Óg were fast out of the blocks with a point after just 17 seconds, but Ben O’Connor soon got on top of his man with two points in the first four minutes. When he rattled a goal three minutes later, it gave us the upper hand, and Olan Broderick quickly added a point from a free. With our backs now dominant and Karl O’Toole, Oisin McCarthy and David Kelly moving the ball in quickly to the forwards, we had a purple patch with Olan scoring a fine point off his right side and then finishing a fine team move to the net. When Dara Motherway got the first of his three points after seventeen minutes, we led by 2-5 to 0-1 and looked comfortable. Our comfort didn’t last long, however, as Eire Óg took control with a goal from their talented full-forward. Four points from play reduced our lead, as our scores dried up bar a Ryan McCarthy free. This left us clinging uneasily to a four point lead at half time – 2-6 to 1-5. The second half saw Éire Óg continue to put pressure on our defence where all six backs Paul, Cian, Danny, Richie, Ryan and Robert worked their socks off to soak the pressure, while Robbie Treacy was cool as a cucumber sa chúl. By forty three minutes both sides had added three points each but two points from Ben gave us a bit of breathing space, before a Daniel Lucey goal (reward for his hard work and distribution) with eight minutes left finally pushed the game beyond the reach of our opponents. Next up it’s the winners of Carrigaline or Bishopstown so hopefully we can continue our good run of form.

Team: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy (0-2f), Richie Landers, Oisin McCarthy, Karl O’Toole, Cathal FItzgibbon, David Kelly, Olan Broderick (1-3), Ben O’Connor (1-4), Daniel Lucey (1-0), Dara Motherway (0-3), Ciaran Leahy, Christian Coughlan, Darragh O’Connor, Owen Cosgrove, Aaron O’Connell, George Sinclair, Tommy Noonan, Brian Murphy.[CM]

Club Nursery Getting Better All The Time

Modifying the famous line “if you build it they will come” from “Field Of Dreams”, in our case it’s “if you run it they will come” which seems to apply. We’ve had three Saturdays now with our young 4 and 5 year olds in our Club Nursery, (and the odd 3-year old joining in too!) and our numbers are increasing week by week, with over thirty boys and girls now joined this new venture. Sessions will continue every Saturday for the months of May and June, so if you have a young boy or girl who is 4, 5 or nearly 4 (that ‘nearly’ is very important at that age!), bring them along from 12.15 to 1.00 p.m. any Saturday you can for some fun and games and a chance to make new friends.[CM]

Future stars get their first coaching session from Sean Crowley in the Killeagh GAA Club Nursery.
