Killeagh-Ita's;

Under 11 campaign ends in valiant defeat

Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Football League Semi-Final Killeagh-Ita’s 2-6, Youghal 4-6

A brave and battling performance by our Under 11 footballers fell just short against our neighbours Youghal in the Rebel Óg Football Semi-Final played under lights on Tuesday evening last in Páirc Uí Chinnéide. Youghal got off to a flier and with two goals in the first five minutes the omens were not good, particularly as our cúl báire Rory Motherway was the busiest man on the field, making excellent saves in that opening period and indeed throughout the game. Gradually our defence tightened up, with some astute sideline moves shoring up some gaps. Darragh O’Leary cleared many balls from the edge of the square and two points from David Buckley and Daniel Walsh gave us some hope. When Daniel goaled on 16 minutes it reduced the gap to a goal and Callum Martin’s point shortly after left the score at 2-2 to 1-3 in favour of the Youghal boys ag leath am. The second half saw points traded (a free from Daniel cancelled out by a Youghal score) but when fear ionad Colm Leahy rattled the net and Daniel Walsh added another point, we led by 2-5 to 2-4, a score which seemed unlikely a short time previously. Youghal got going again and despite some excellent defending, they got two late goals to win by 4-6 to 2-6 on reiteoir Joe Coppinger’s final whistle. Well done to the whole panel who tried really hard and best wishes

to Youghal and to Kiltha Óg who play in the final on Saturday next. Thanks to bainisteoir Declan Fogarty who has nurtured this team throughout the year and developed their football skills consistently.

Team: Rory Motherway, Evan Daly, Ben Fogarty, Darragh O’Leary, Ben Budds, Conor Meade, Callum Martin White, David Buckley, Danny Fitzgerald, Daniel Walsh, Tommy Morrison, Ciaran Brennan, Colm Leahy, Dylan McCarthy.

Parish Leagues Time

No sooner have we finished the Under 10 Parish Leagues than it’s time to start the Under 12 Leagues. We begin on Tuesday 20th @ 6.30, and continue for the following three Tuesdays, all under floodlights. Watch this space for reports and photographs.

Wrapping Up Weekend

Thankfully the clement weather will contribute to the feeling that our winter will be shorter than usual. Some of our teams are preparing for hibernation by wrapping up their 2015 activities in these days. Our very successful inaugural Club Nursery for 3-5 year old boys and girls completed their season which began in April on Saturday last with a little party at the end of their final session, while our Under 7’s had a marvellous trip across the border to Abbeyside. Great games of hurling were followed by a trip to Dungarvan Playground and McDonalds, where young and old had time to reflect on their year and think of 2016. Meanwhile, the Under 8 boys headed south west to Aghada, specifically East Cork Adventure Centre, for some fun, sweat and mud! Next weekend, the Under 9s and 10s head to Kilmurry on Saturday to play a football game and wrap up their season.

Diary Date

Monday November 30th is our Juvenile AGM @ 7.30 p.m. All parents please try to attend, all mentors please try to get your 2015 report to Ursula in the next two weeks, unless you are still in action.

U7’s Day Out

Our U7’s had a very busy and enjoyable day out on Saturday last, October 17th. It started with a blitz at the Abbeyside GAA Club in Dungarvan where we fielded three teams (see photographs). The teams eagerly contested all their games and played very well. Following on from these successful games the boys were then taken to the local playground where everybody had a really enjoyable time as they waited for their meals to be prepared at a nearby restaurant. When the call came to be seated they took their seats and enjoyed the food and drinks and surprise desserts that were served up and all were very well behaved. We would like to extend a big thanks to all the parents who attended from early morning and rowed in to offer help and support to both players and coaches. Well done and again, many thanks to the mentors who organised the day’s activities for the lads and also for their coaching and guidance to the boys this season. Well done to Brinsley, Joe, Aidan et al for Saturday and everyone who worked with these boys throughout the season.
