Pitch Lock-Up

There are a number of club members who have allowed their names to go forward to provide a very valuable locking up service of our club grounds and premises. The times of locking up of the grounds for the foreseeable future have been agreed as follows: Monday to Friday – locking up will be at 10.00pm and on Saturday/Sunday –locking up will be at 8.00pm. If you are organising training/matches/meetings etc. which occur outside the above times you need to arrange with the appointed person an alternative locking up time for the particular date. You can reach the appointed person via our Club Secretary or the Pitch Co-ordinator at the time of booking the pitch/premises. All of this is necessary to avoid double journeys by the locking up appointee. Thanking you in anticipation for your cooperation in this matter.

Fé 16 Eastern A Hurling League Semi-Final

Killeagh-Ita’s 1-16, Courcey Rovers 2-12

It took twenty minutes of extra time to finally get a winner in this close encounter played in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Tuesday evening last. Even then, it took a last minute point from Sean Walsh, only our second point from play in forty minutes, to secure the victory which had looked unlikely at various points during the game. After fourteen minutes we trailed by 2-3 to 0-2 and looked in dire trouble, but the ship steadied and a goal from Sean Walsh followed immediately by an excellent point from Keane Kelly Budds meant that we retired at half-time only two points down – 2-3 to 1-4. Having gone two up then half way through the second half (1-9 to 2-4), we had to score an injury-time free to equalise after Courceys had scored three in a row. Extra time saw Courceys score four excellent points in the first ten minutes, while Padraig Leahy replied with a fine point from play and Sean Walsh’s free left us two behind once again. Shane Kearney proved to be the hero in the final ten minutes, scoring three long-range frees to level the game before Sean’s late winning point. This was a battling team performance, with Keane Kelly Budds outstanding at centre back, James Kent and Kieran Daly playing really well in defence and Richie Landers working really hard up front. We relied on Shane and Sean to get the majority of our scores (including ten from placed balls) so that anomaly will need to be rectified before the final against Cobh or Aghabullogue. One other positive note was the return to action after half-time of Jamie Landers who had been injured for over two months – hopefully he will be able to line out in the final in a couple of weeks’ time. Finally, we wish to thank the Courcey Rovers team, mentors and supporters for making the long trip down on a school night and having to stay an extra-long time before facing for home.

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Darragh Geary, Dylan Hogan, James Kent, Kieran Daly, Keane Kelly Budds (0-1), Shane Kearney (0-5, 0-4f), Barry Motherway, Padraig Leahy (0-1), Richie Long, Daniel Hickey, Sean Walsh, Adrian Galvin, Jamie Clifford, Richie Landers, Jack Wyse, Jamie Landers, Ryan McCarthy, Olan Broderick, Cian McDonald, Olin Hennessy, Andrew Foley.

Super Valu Super Kit!

We have benefitted on the double from the generosity of Super Valu and its local agents – Brookes of Youghal and Hurley’s of Midleton, who both provided free sports equipment to Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile GAA Club in the past two weeks – comprising footballs, cones, water bottles, and other useful materials. We would like to thank both businesses who are contributing positively to their communities in many ways.

Under 12 season finishes up in Ballygarvan

Our Under 12 boys completed their Eastern A season on Thursday evening last when we were well beaten by Ballygarvan in the Football League semi-final. We came up against an excellent side who were stronger, faster and more skilful than our team, and in particular their ability to catch the ball cleanly in the air gave them a platform to attack. Our team nevertheless kept going even when the game was gone and managed the final score of the evening. This completes our campaign – many thanks to Johnny, Mikey, Declan, Richard, John and anyone else who helped during the year with both football and hurling. Just the Parish Leagues now to run!

Team: Rory Motherway, Rory Lynch, Jamie Fogarty, Jack Flanagan, Ben Budds, George Walsh, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Evan Lane, Colm Treacy, David Buttimer, Eoin Brenner, Dale McMahon, Colm Landers, Paudie Mackey, Conor Meade, Callum Magner, David Buckley, Daniel Walsh, Ben Fogarty, Ciaran Brennan, Callum Martin White, Darragh O’Leary.

Parish Leagues

Our Under 10 Parish Leagues have been running for the past two Monday evenings with great excitement and close games. The finals are to take place on Friday evening next, October 9th, under floodlights on our new pitch. It promises to be a great evening for our young boys and their families.
